The Online Network announced today that Paula Garces, best known for her role in “Maria” in the Harold & Kumar film franchise, will join the cast of the beloved serial drama All My Children, re-launching on April 29th on Hulu, Hulu Plus and iTunes thanks to The Online Network.

Garces will portray Lea Marquez, a smart, savvy, beautiful woman who’s devoted her life to a career of fighting crime and bringing down the bad guys. Lea’s career takes up most of her days and nights, which leaves little time for a personal life. That is, until a man challenges her safe, controlled existence and threatens to open up the part of her she’d long since put to rest, her heart.

Garces will also be seen this summer on Lifetime Network’s Devious Maids, which is created and executive produced by Marc Cherry and executive produced by Eva Longoria.

Paula made her film debut in Paramount’s teen sci-fi adventure Clockstoppers, starring opposite Jesse Bradford. From there, Garces went on to star in the hip-hop comedy Marci X. Among her other feature credits are Man of the House, opposite Academy Award-winner Tommy Lee Jones, James Redford’s directorial debut, “Spin,” alongside Ruben Blades which would lead her to star as “Maria” in New Line hit comedies Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle, Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay and A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas.  Garces’ small screen credits include: CBS “Elementary”, “CSI: Miami”, NBC “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” and spent three years as Officer Tina Hallon on FX’s hit television series “The Shield.”

Expanding her career further Paula Garces created “Aluna”, the first Trans-media Latina superhero character, which debuted at San Diego’s Comic Con in 2011. Aluna is currently licensed to an online game called “Heroes of Newerth” and she is being played over 45 thousand times a day worldwide. Ms. Garces has partnered with Sekret Agent Productions, the creative writing team behind “Assassin Creed”, to rewrite the Aluna comic books. They will release the new series at San Diego’s Comic Con July 2013 as a trilogy.

‘The Masked Singer’ Runner-up, Ex- AMC’s Jesse McCartney, Recalls Working With David Canary

If you caught the finale of The Masked Singer this week, you know that “The Turtle” was revealed to be none other than former All My Children star and recording artist, Jesse McCartney.

While McCartney came in as the runner-up, losing out to Kandi Burress, he spoke to Digital Journal about his latest single, “Friends’ and recalled his time working with the one and only David Canary (Ex-Stuart/Adam) on the now defunct ABC daytime drama series.

As a young JR Chandler from 1998-2001, that put him sharing on-screen time with Canary, who played his father.  Jesse remembers all of the lines of dialogue thrown at him at a young age was not fun.

When speaking of his time with Canary, McCartney shared: “He was one of the sweetest guys on the planet and he was such a kind soul. He played my father, Adam Chandler, and not only was he the star of the show but he played his own twin brother, Stuart. He had double the lines of any character on the show, and in my three years on the show, he never messed up a line even once. There was a time when David helped me when I was having a moment and I struggled with remembering my lines, so as a result, the soap world for me is very sentimental.”
