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.

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

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.

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….

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 »

Michael B. Jordan Pays Tribute To Chadwick Boseman: “Since Nearly The Beginning Of My Career, Starting with All My Children When I was 16 Years Old You Paved The Way For Me”

Following the news of the tragic death of now motion picture icon, Chadwick Boseman late Friday, tributes and sentiments have poured in from celebrities, politicians and fans from all across the world.

Chadwick Boseman passed away late last week at the age of 43 from colon cancer – a battle he kept silent about for the last four years of life.

No one could be more intertwined with Boseman’s career than that of his fellow Black Panther star, Michael B. Jordan.  For Jordan took over the role of Reggie Porter on All My Children from Boseman after the late actor lasted one week, following standing up to, and addressing concerns, of racial stereotypes in the way that the part was written.  Reggie was introduced to Pine Valley as a gang member in 2003.  As previously reported it was Boseman who helped the soap opera improve the role that Jordan took over with some recommendations.

Now Michael B. Jordan has written a heartfelt remembrance of Chadwick that he shared on his Instagram, and what he has meant to his life, including how he showed him how to be better, to honor purpose and create legacy.

Read below Michael’s post:

“I’ve been trying to find the words, but nothing comes close to how I feel. I’ve been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug…everything.

I wish we had more time.

One of the last times we spoke, you said we were forever linked , and now the truth of that means more to me than ever. Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old you paved the way for me. You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not…I’ve been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness.

I wish we had more time.

Everything you’ve given the world … the legends and heroes that you’ve shown us we are … will live on forever. But the thing that hurts the most is that I now understand how much of a legend and hero YOU are. Through it all, you never lost sight of what you loved most. You cared about your family , your friends, your craft, your spirit. You cared about the kids, the community, our culture and humanity. You cared about me. You are my big brother, but I never fully got a chance to tell you, or to truly give you your flowers while you were here.

I wish we had more time.

I’m more aware now than ever that time is short with people we love and admire. I’m gonna miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor, and incredible gifts. I’ll miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes. I’m dedicating the rest of my days to live the way you did. With grace, courage, and no regrets. “Is this your king!?” Yes . he . is!  Rest In Power Brother.”

What do you think of Michael’s tribute to Chadwick and how they have been interconnected dating back to 2003 and All My Children? Comment below.

Chadwick Boseman, ‘Black Panther’ Star and the Original Reggie On AMC, Dies At 43

In just heartbreaking news in an already dismal 2020, one of the brightest motion picture stars, Chadwick Boseman has died at the age of 43.

Boseman was battling colon cancer for the last four years of his life.  According to his rep, Boseman was diagnosed in 2016 with stage 3 colon cancer and his battle continued as it progressed to stage 4

Chadwick passed away with his wife and family by his side in his home.   In a shocking revelation, all of the movie performances in the last four years he has filmed were done in between chemotherapy and countless surgery.

Boseman is best known for his groundbreaking role as King T’Challa  in Black Panther.   His performance was the first ever Marvel Studio movie headlined by a black actor.  The film was nominated for an Academy Award.   He first appeared as the character in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War.

Most recently, Chadwick appeared in the Spike Lee’s Vietnam War drama Da 5 Bloods, and this year he’s due to appear opposite Viola Davis Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” the film adaptation of the August Wilson play.  The actor starred in other films, including playing James Brown in Get On Up and Jackie Robinson in 42,  and the lead role in Marshall.

However, Boseman actually got his start on All My Children when he was the original actor cast in the role of Reggie Porter.  He appeared on the soap for only one week before the role was recast with none other than Michael B. Jordan, and their paths could eventually cross years later on multiple film projects.

In an interview in 2019, Boseman revealed what led him to be fired from All My Children stating:  “When I got it (the part), I was like, ‘This is not part of my manifesto. This is not part of what I want to do. How can I make it work?’ Because with a soap opera, you don’t know the full scope of what’s gonna happen — you don’t know where they’re gonna take the character, because they don’t always know where the character is going. And because of that, there’s possibly room for me to adjust this and change it and make it so it’s stereotypical on the page but not on the screen.”

For Boseman had issues with how Reggie was portrayed and how it was written with racial stereotypes.  In story, Reggie was a young gang member who was adopted by Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) and her husband, Jackson Montgomery (Walt Willey). “I remember going home and thinking, ‘Do I say something to them about this? Do I just do it?’ And I couldn’t just do it. “I had to voice my opinions and put my stamp on it. And the good thing about it was, it changed it a little bit for Michael B. Jordan.”  Apparently the producers told Boseman he was too much trouble but took some of his suggestions on the role moving forward.

Watch below, when Chadwick speaks at the Howard University commencement in which he shared to the graduating students about losing his gig on All My Children(Thanks to Renee for this)
