According to reports, one of All My Children’s favorite baddies,  Billy Clyde Tuggle, is returning to Pine Valley! That means that actor Matthew Cowles is resurrecting his oh-so-infamous role on the revival of the series when he debuts on May 16th!

The back-story: Billy Clyde was was presumed dead in a 1990 following a bridge confrontation with Tad (Michael E. Knight)!  According to Soap Opera Digest, “A show rep, relates that the super-villain now runs an escort service and will be involved in Angie and Jesse’s quest to find her missing daughter, Cassandra. Expect Billy Clyde to also interact with Dixie, who had been the unwilling object of his deranged affection.”  Oh-oh! This sounds pretty juicy is you ask us, with lots of story potential and fall-out!

Matthew Cowles was nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award in the Supporting Actor category for his work on All My Children in 1981, and he is married to actress Christine Baranski!

What do you think about the return of Billy Clyde Tuggle and how it figures into the current storyline? We are excited about it, are you? Let us know!

Totally agree, but have to admit when I watched him during his meanest heydays in the late 70 when I was a little kid he scared the living daylights out of me. I wonder sometimes what was my mom thinking letting me watch his scenes where he was threatening to kill/beat on Estelle!

He’s still alive?
Man, they’re really reaching for it aren’t they.
Maybe they’ll bring Donna back as an aging prostitute?

This is brilliant if you ask me! He should have been brought back long ago! These new producers and writers are fans of the show so it makes sense that they would do something like this.

The bridge where they filmed was at Bill Cosby’s house in Shelburne Falls MA. That is a few miles from me. I wish I had taken the day off from work! Michael Knight was at one of the local bars. My friend saw him but I didn’t. Tad was so good looking then.
This is so exciting and I bet Michael Knight will be back soon, too!

Guess I will watch for a while .At least till Dixie eats the show Can’t stand the actress and character. Now Billy Clyde was a nice or not so nice change for soap characters. He certainly made me laugh. I watched the first week ,and surprise I did like the show. Hadn’t watched for years when they made Babe and Bianca best friend when they kept Miranda from her and they made JR the bad guy. Turned it off,.

Well Johnny, you just said a mouthful! They are really reaching for it indeed. This is positively the most vile, horrid looking person on the planet to have to look at. I cannot come up with enough bad things to say about this man and his character of Billy Clyde. My jaw dropped when I read they have pulled him in to this mess. But what really floored me about this guy is that he is, in real life, married to one of my absolute favorite actresses, a gorgeous, multi-talented lady all rolled up into a gem of an actress.… Read more »

Kim Delaney on All My Children Primetime Reboot: “All They Have To Do Is Ask, and I’m There”

While Kim Delaney is currently appearing on General Hospital in the role of Jackie Templeton, and she just appeared in her new Lifetime movie, The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt of Justice, the actress revealed she would be up for appearing in the upcoming primetime revival in development of All My Children.

Delaney became soap-famous in the role of AMC’s Jenny Gardner from 1981-1984 before she was killed-off the show in the now iconic jet ski explosion.

Now even though Jenny died, Kim would be up for figuring out how the character could be resurrected or how she could take part in the primetime reboot of the ABC soap opera called, Pine Valley.

In an interview with Soaps.com, Kim shared on being part of the reboot: “All they have to do is ask, and I’m there.  Sure, Jenny died, but someone asked me the other day if we ever saw her body. So maybe she’s out there, somewhere… ”

Former All My Children stars and real-life duo, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are executive producers of Pine Valley along with Andrew Stearn.

So, would you like to see an alive and well Jenny Gardner, or some other role for Delaney, in the All My Children reboot? Comment below.

TONIGHT: Kim Delaney Stars in Lifetime’s ‘The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice’

Make sure to catch General Hospital and former All My Children and NYPD Blue star, Kim Delaney (Jackie, GH, Ex-Jenny, AMC) tonight on Saturday, February 20th when her highly-anticipated Lifetime movie debuts beginning at 8pm EST/7pm CST which marks the cable network’s 400th original movie.

In The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice, it tells the story of Mari Gilbert’s search for the truth behind what happened to her daughter Shannan, a sometime escort who disappeared after a ‘date’ on Long Island.

After Shannan (Katharine Isabelle, Hannibal) fails to come home, her mother Mari (Delaney) knows something is terribly wrong. Pleading to police to take her concerns seriously, she keeps pushing the police for answers. Mari’s insistence that her daughter not be overlooked eventually leads to a horror hidden on Long Island for more than a decade – 19 bodies of young women discovered buried in shallow graves along Ocean Parkway in the area of Jones Beach State Park. Though the search for the killer is still ongoing, Mari’s passionate dedication to giving her daughter and other forgotten women a voice, and the attention they deserve, has kept the case alive with hopes of a breakthrough soon. The movie not only follows a mother’s tireless search for the truth, but it also digs deep into the murders, including Shannan’s, that have gone unsolved for so long.

Delaney’s film, executive produced by Deborah Norville, is based off real life-events that transpired in the early 2010’s where the crimes were never solved.

In an interview with 98.1 WOGL Radio’s Glenn Kalina, Delaney shared: “There is hope in the film… but you also want an answer… what happened to all of these girls?  My character just was relentless trying to find her (daughter) or find answers where she was.  They found a bunch of other bodies, and what they learned was that they were all escorts… and then they learned there was a possible serial killer.”

Check out a promo for the movie below.
