Guiding Light’s Robert Newman, All My Children’s Darnell Williams, One Life to Live’s Scott Evans ,  Kristen Alderson, Ilene Kristen, and David A. Gregory are some of the daytime faves tapped for roles in the series, which is said to be a half-hour drama.

In story, Newman, plays Syd Winchester, the deceased owner of ‘Mélange’. Scott Evans stars as Ryann Parker, a young man who fights to keep Mélange away from Syd’s wife, Vivian played by

Melange was created and being executive produce by Tom D’Angora, with former OLTL director and Emmy Award-winner, Gary Donatelli, and Tony Award winning producer, Tim Kashani.

Sounds commendable. The themes of this new show seem significantly more meaningful than typical daytime fare.

Gotta say, though, it was pretty hilarious the way in which her character, Angelica, was bumped off in Days of Our Lives.

I’d love to see Darnell Williams, Scott Evans, Kristen Alderson, Ilene Kristen and David A. Gregory again. The story sounds interesting. I hope the show will air on some non subscription venue. Unfortunately In today’s world, I realize that’s unlikely. Please keep us informed of the progress.

David Gregory being on the show is enough of a reason to stay away, unless Chandelier is making an appearance.

Lmfao!!! Ouch harsh!! We cannot blame him! He was a talented actor, but he was thrust front and centre, bare torso and all, by Frank and Ron who were salivating all over the control booth. He was an ill defined character (rapist and creep) who could not carry an hour long show based on his abs. It was unfair of them to do that to him. Some of the lines they had him spouting while lounging in only a bath towel would make the most seasoned actor cringe!! Im not saying he was thespian of the year, but I have… Read more »

So I just googled this show out of curiosity because I love the “soapy cast” that was listed here and was intrigued to see the name Omar Sharif Jr. Some might remember Omar Sharif from many movies including the wonderful, “Funny Girl” (which was banned in many Arab nations because Omar appeared with Barbra Streisand, who is Jewish. Omar is said to have fallen in love with her in reality while filming.) Anyway, interesting to note in this world of divided religions/factions, etc. that Sharif was a Melkite Catholic, related to the Greek Orthodox Church, converted to Islam to marry… Read more »

My favorite role was as Jennifer on Search For Tomorrow wayyyyyyyy back in the day and Knot’s Landing. Didn’t care for her stint on Days, except her comical death, poor Lucas.

It is a stark retelling of Western expansion, and an intense study of one family fleeing poverty to seek a better future in America’s promised land — Montana.

According to Deadline, in the cast is none other than The Bay’s Daytime Emmy-winner, Eric Nelsen (Daniel Garrett), who was also part of the cast of Prospect Park’s reboot of All My Children as AJ Chandler.

In 1883, look for Nelsen to take on the role of Ennis, a young, handsome cowboy who agrees to help escort a group of inexperienced men, women and children north to find a home.

The series also stars: Billy Bob Thornton, Faith Hill, Gratiela Brancusi, Sam Elliott, Stephanie Nur, and Tim McGraw to name but a few.

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.
