Another piece of big casting news from the hit ABC series, Revenge TV Line confirmed that Jennifer Jason Leigh has nabbed the role of Emily VanCamp’s (Emily Thorne) MIA mom in the sudsy nighttime series.   In story, the Clarke family’s presumed dead matriarch will be a recurring role early into season two!

“This character is going to have some deep psychological issues,” Revenge creator Mike Kelley revealed several months ago.   He want on to say, “So we’re going to need somebody that can play volatile and dangerous; all of the scariest parts of Emily’s personality are going to be present and apparent and a little bit out of control in her mother.  But at the same time, what works so great for Emily is that sweet façade, so this woman needs to feel like she’s got potential for kindness. You look at her and you don’t know that she’s as damaged as she is inside. But you’ll quickly learn that this is a very dangerous person.”

Leigh is currently recurring on the final season of Weeds‘ playing Mary Louise Parker’s older sister.   So what do you think about the casting of Jennifer Jason Leigh as Emily VanCamp’s on-screen mom?  Thumbs up? Or, thumbs down?  Let us know your preliminary thoughts.

Good Actress.

I regard her, as an independant… character… fearless. Actress… who, losses herself in all her roles. She takes over, whomever, she plays out. She’s a scene stealer.

ie: Miami Blues – w/Alec Baldwin
Rush – w/Jason Patric
Dolores Claiborne – w/Kathy Bates
A thousand Acres – w/Jessica Lange and Michelle Pfieffer.

I hope, Jennifer and Madeleine Stowe have meaty encounters….

I don’t know anything about her. I thought maybe she’s too young, but she’s 50, so the age is right. I’ll reserve judgement until she has a chance to get into the role. Can’t wait until REVENGE is back!

I give it a thumbs up!!! She’d be great playing that part. I remember her in “Single White Female” movie, which was good. Also, she was in the movie with Tim Matheson called “Buried Alive” on TV. I liked that movie, which she cheated on Tim Matheson with her co worker and got buried alive at the end; and she was in the TV movie a long time ago, about a young high school student who got to be a cheerleader and her parents did not praise her, or acknowledge her, or wasn’t proud of her (reminds me kind of… Read more »

In the real life story, the remains of the women were uncovered accidentally as police searched for Shannan, who went missing after visiting a client, whom she met on Craigslist, in the gated community of Oak Beach on Long Island, and then fleeing the man’s home.   However, police believe that Mari’s unwavering fight to find her daughter which led to finding the other women is not how Shannan ultimately disappeared.

While the case has yet to be solved the film shares, “Though the search for the serial 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.”

PEOPLE exclusively dropped the trailer over the weekend.  Make sure to check it out.

Mark Consuelos on the All My Children Primetime Reboot: “I Know They’re Going to Bring Back Some Fan Favorites”

On Friday, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC) was a guest on the CBS afternoon series, The Talk, where he shared his excitement and some insight into the upcoming All My Children primetime reboot, Pine Valley, in development at ABC..

As previously reported, Mark and his wife Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley, AMC) are two of the executive producers on the project.

Consuelos shared on the reboot:All My Children was such a big part of my life and my wife’s life. And you know, I met my wife there obviously, had kids, became a young man on that show, and we got the opportunity to reboot the primetime version and the idea was brought to us, and we’re so excited.  Of all the things that we’ve ever announced that we’re going to do, this is one of the biggest responses we’ve got from our fans. They’re so excited.  It’s a big piece of TV that’s been missing for such a long time, and we’re going to bring it back.”

When avid soap fan and The Talk co-host, Sheryl Underwood, posed a major question to Consuelos that has been on longtime All My Children fans minds, she got a solid response from him.

Sheryl was trying to get some tea on who might appear in the reboot, when she asked, “Is it going to be the Cortlandts and the Warners? Is it going to be everybody?” Consuelos then responded with: “I know they’re going to bring back some fan favorites, and it will take place in Pine Valley, and I’m really, really excited.”

You can watch a portion of Mark’s virtual visit on The Talk below.

Lexi Ainsworth Teases Her Return to General Hospital

With her father Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) presumed dead (although viewers know he is very much alive with amnesia), it looks like Kristina is on her way back to Port Charles – which would be a welcome return to the role for Daytime Emmy winner Lexi Ainsworth.

Rumors began circulating on Inauguration day Wednesday, when Ainsworth shared a pic on her Instagram Story of her watching the ceremonies from a dressing room at Prospect Studios in Los Angeles, where GH is taped.

Later, after reports had surfaced on social media that Ainsworth might be returning to her signature role, the actress shared some of those on her Instagram Story as well, which was seen as her way of confirming she is back on the show.

Lexi has been recurring on General Hospital for the last several years, so there is no telling how long she will be on-screen this time.

While there has been no official confirmation from GH, chances are that if there is a funeral ahead for Sonny, Kristina of course would be there to mourn her father. Stay tuned.

So, excited that Lexi will be back on-air on GH? Comment below.
