After his appearance at the premiere of All My Children and One Life to Live back in late April in New York City, Michael Nader was suspect in that Prospect Park’s AMC was bringing him back to the series to revive his fan favorite character of Dimitri Marick!  Well, today TOLN confirmed that Nader is indeed back in Pine Valley and has been shooting episodes for a few weeks now!

In this morning’s TOLN press release it states: “It’s been more than a decade since actor Michael Nader’s Dimitri Marick stepped foot in Pine Valley, but thanks to Prospect Park’s The OnLine Network, longtime fans can look forward to reuniting with Nader’s brooding character when he returns to the beloved series series on June 3rd.   Brooke English played by actress Julia Barr, has offered Dimitri a job as head of one of Chandler Enterprises new divisions – Chandler Media – which he gratefully accepts. How will Pine Valley residents react to Dimitri’s return after all these years?

All My Children fans fell in love with Nader’s role as Dimitri when he first appeared on the show back in 1991. His passionate romance with Susan Lucci’s Erica Kane made Nader half of one of television’s first power couples.

Regarding his return to the series, Nader said, “I got a call from executive producer Ginger Smith who said Prospect Park is relaunching All My Children online.  She said ‘we’d love for you to come back.’ And I said, ‘you want me, you got me.’  Being back, is like being home.”

So AMC fans, delighted to hear of the confirmation that Nader is back as Dimitri? How do you think he will shake up things on the canvas? Who do you think would be a good romantic partner for Dimitri this time out?  Let us know your thoughts!

I would say he looks like death warmed over …

… but that would be insulting death. What the heck happened to him over the past dozen years? More drugs obviously.

Boy does he look so different. I didn’t recognize at all till I read this and saw his name…
He didn’t age well at all!

He looks awful, but drug and alcohol addiction will do that to you.

Who the hell said he was addicted to Drugs or Alcohol? You do realize that he was not “Young” the last time he played Dimitri and that was 10 years ago!

Um, the press and AMC when they fired him for his 2nd DUI and his drug arrest.

I was just expressing my opinion! He does look quite different from years ago. I know people get older but some look better than others. Your remark wasn’t necessary..

susan M.
Guest
susan M.

Didn’t rememeber he was arrested for drugs. That might be a factor in the way he looks now. OKAY!

Mo
Guest

I wouldn’t say terrible. Certainly quite different than we remember, but he’s 10 years older. Hopefully wiser. And has probably been through the ringer.

Derek

He’s almost 70, how is he supposed to look? This isn’t 1995 anymore.

Patrick
Guest

LOL…. he looks waif thin and haggard.

Would Joan Collins look back?

he was def… imbibing in illegals. was arresting…

I will say…. back in the DAY…. the two brothers…. Dmitri and Edmund…. boy! didn’t these two Capitalize in Masculine. what a treat.

Angela
Guest

Well if I remember it correctly he was fired because he was arrested for drugs a couple of times. So that would explain why he looks horrible. (I think he does)

Mo
Guest
Mo

That’s all I think of when I hear his name. The drug thing.

Hopefully he’s clean now.

He does look a little gaunt. His hair is gone, by choice or nature, so I think that’s why he is unrecognizable to some.

Patrick
Guest

it was kinda like watching…. when… Palmer Cordtlandts nephew came back…

ala: Mr. Flashdance… Michael Naider…?

talk about aging.

hey… at 50 here… I’m going thru that…. LOL… and it’s catching/alarming/distressing…. you name it the gamut is their….

more specifically that stomach… ie: i look like i’m 5 mos. pregnant… LOL.. and i’ll carry to full time…. LOL…. oye!

AMC is ALOT better than it was on ABC.. it was unwatchable, which is why i stopped watching. I tuned in to see jesse/angie get reunited.. and the finale.. but now that it’s back, the writing is ALOT better and it’s got me HOOKED.

I already knew Michael Nader would be back, glad to see that it’s now confirmed. I’m really glad he’s returning! He looks fine to me, just older & less hair. He may have had his problems but haven’t we all had some drama in our lives?!! Michael is a welcome addition & I can’t wait to get involved in his storyline! AMC & OLTL have been fantastic….thank you Prospect Park!!! Now if we could just get Tad, Roxy, & a few others……

Awesome news for AMC fans. Dimitri first appeared as Natalie’s (Kate Collins) rescuer when her twin sister, Janet (also Kate Collins) kidnapped her, threw her down a well, and left her there while she impersonated Natalie. Nader was fired from AMC years later, and replaced with another actor… and then the character was written out of the show. His return a decade later is sure to excite fans. Good work, Prospect Park!

I have no recollection of the character of Dimitri being portrayed by another actor. Michael Nader was good in the role, not sure though why it is necessary to bring him back. I would concentrate more on getting Tad Martin back and Erica Kane – but, whatever the producers decide is all right I guess. As for his physical appearance, well, we all get older, he wasn’t exactly a kid when he introduced the character – wasn’t he also on DYNASTY back in the day? Few remember that he was also in many of those Frankie/Annette Beach Party flicks also… Read more »

OMG!! This is amazing, yes he has had troubles over the years, but hopefully he’s learned from them!!!! I would DIE if Edmund turned up alive!!!! Or maybe they could recast Dimitri’s son, Anton and bring him back as well!!!!! Have they explained where Ryan and Greenlee are??? Or have they been mentioned???

I like Dimitri as a character but he doesn’t really fit in with the storyline unless Erica is around. I have to say Zach and Dimitri and even Jesse and angie’s storyline needs some work, / dunutru reakkt beeds /erucaj Jabe,

Gawd- the comments here are awful. The rumors people still throw around about this man are pathetic. Either post a picture of yourself, as you tear another human being apart so we can rip you apart, or shut up.
Welcome home, Mr. Nader! Glad to have you back! You’ve been missed!

Great to see he is back. I hope he is off the drugs and I remember when he was arrested for driving under some influence with his young daughter in the car. If he has overcome this ,more power to him,and if he looks older so do we all.I always like Dimitri. Welcome home. He may look different but his very distinct voice will be known when its heard

If you have ever been close to anyone with an addiction problem (as I have) you would know how great it is to see them back working again and hopefully living a clean life. Michael Nader, you are still sexy even though you look a little older (guess what? So do I!) and I wish you all the luck in the world in this new venture. Can’t wait to see you shine on the new AMC!

I absolutely adored Dimitri Marick back in the day, not only was Michael Nader a fine actor at that time, he was just plain FINE too look at. I recognized him right away when I saw him. Yes, he’s aged, so have they all. I am one who doesn’t like the botox look on men, I like a man’s natural looks, they often get better with age, such as Harrison Ford, Sean Connery, and others. I think Michael Nader is distinguished looking and I certainly hope that his bad-boy days are gone for good. I am so glad he has… Read more »

Mark Consuelos Exits ‘Riverdale’

Last night, All My Children alum, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo Santos) made what appears to be his final appearance for now on CW’s soapy drama, Riverdale.

Consuelos departed Riverdale as a series regular on the season 5 finale, after coming on to the show in its second season in the role of villain, Hiram Lodge.

Riverdale executive producer and showrunner, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, shared with Deadline a statement on Consuelos contribution and run on the series: “From the moment Mark joined us, he was up for literally anything, a hundred percent committed to making Archie’s life a living hell. And what’s funny is, Mark couldn’t be more different from Hiram. A classy pro and the sweetest guy, always looking out for everyone. We wish Mark the best and hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Hiram Lodge.

Consuelos offered up these sentiments in a statement on his Riverdale exit: “First and foremost, I would like to thank Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa for this incredible opportunity. Never before has playing a character that was so bad, felt so good. Huge thanks to the Riverdale fandom, to the brilliant crew and amazing cast, whom I consider dear friends and family.”

So, will you miss seeing Mark on Riverdale? Elsewhere, still no word on the “Pine Valley” reboot in which Mark and wife, Kelly Ripa, are two of the executive producers of that many All My Children fans were hoping would come to fruition. Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Beloved Soap Stars Left Out of 2021 Primetime Emmy Broadcast In-Memoriam Tribute

Last night, during the presentation of the 73rd annual Primetime Emmys broadcast on CBS, the annual In-Memoriam segment brought with it so many households names in a year that saw so many legacy talents and more pass away.

The tribute was performed by Leon Bridges and Jon Batiste to Bridge’s song, “River”, and as the images of the departed played across the screens from Cloris Leachman to Cicely Tyson, to Ed Asner to Michael K. Williams, and more, it was clear that several of the major late daytime soap stars were not included in the on-air tribute as well as other omissions.

Now granted, we know they will all be a part of next year’s 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in-memoriam segment, but still these actors were a part of this community and not only appeared on the soaps, but other shows as well.

Those that daytime fans noticed were not included were: Michael Nader (Ex-Dex Dexter and Dimitri Marick, Dynasty and All My Children) Stuart Damon (Ex-Alan Quartermaine, General Hospital), Ray MacDonnell (Ex-Joe Martin, All My Children) and Jay Pickett (Ex-Frank Scanlon, Port Charles).

From primetime MIA action were: Michael Constantine (Ex-Room 222), Tanya Roberts (Ex-Charlie’s Angeles), Director, Richard Donner, writer Larry McMurty, and DMX, to name but a few.

However, the Television Academy did list all of its members who died on their website in the In-Memoriam section, because due to time constraints, they could not possibly showcase everyone.

What do you feel about the omissions of Nader, Damon, MacDonnell, Pickett, and more from the In-Memoriam tribute? Let us know in the comment section, but first watch the segment.
