Very excting news for Roger. I have been a fan of his since 1992. I say its about time Roger branch out and work in Primetime and in movies. Roger is an excellent actor. I can’t wait to watch him on Californication. Congrats Roger you deserve all the sucess in the world.:)

I hope so! He has more than proven himself as diverse and capable actor! I will follow him as I have always done, but I was first introduced to his talent when he played Todd. And it is my wish that he somehow continue that role. But, we all must grow and sometimes that means leaving somethings behind! Keep moving forward Roger and congrats!

Fantastic !! And on channels that I subscribe to.
I don’t like him as Franco so unfortunately I have not been watching GH as much lately.
Since FX Canada sacked AMC and OLTL from the network, I don’t get to see RH play Todd either….and I am not about to pay iTunes Canada 100 smacks for 50 episodes.
FTR I’d watch him in any prime time venture – he’s already got the series Prey and Dawson’s Creek under his belt.

Love him as Todd Manning on OLTL – hope he does this along with Californication. Must totally agree with you about the Franco thing – that is EPIC FAIL! Best of luck and much success to Roger Howarth.

Itll be interesting to see daytimes best actor in other roles especially primetime but didnt he do some primetime series years ago…im sure i saw him in something. Also Vincent(AMCs David) is another actor who should be doing some primetime shows. Lynne Herring(GH) too! Lynne would make a perfect guest appearance on Hot In Cleveland!

I think Roger Hogarth is a really great actor and wish him much success in his career. I just hope he will continue to stay on OLTL as Todd – he is soooo perfect playing that character. I do see him going on to Prime Time Shows and maybe even the Movies. Good luck to you, Roger, but don’t forget your soap opera fans …. we’re behind you all the way!!!!!!! We love YOU!!!!!!!

I absolutely adore RH in any role he plays. He is such a talented actor. I think the soaps only show a tiny bit of what he can do, so I am happy he is getting the opportunity to be on a different kind of show. This actor has never ceased to amaze me with his understanding and interpretations of the characters he portrays. He can play any role you throw at him and make you believe that he is really that guy. Hes witty, funny, scary, sincere, angry (sometimes all at the same time which is something not easily… Read more »

Roger is an ubertalent for sure! He deserves to “make it” outside daytime, but he’s also spent 20 years mostly on daytime. One never knows; it’s possible to branch out after years of not really doing so. Good luck to him. No one deserves it more. I hope Roger will do some comedy, not drama. He’s a great comedic actor!

Way to go Roger!!! That is great news and he is very deserving! He’s very talented! However there are so many talented people on GH and the other soaps it is amazing they don’t get more gigs in primetime!

Good for him! I will watch him where ever he goes, but my very favorite tv character of all times is…and will always be…his portrayal of Todd Manning. I actually would like to see an evening sitcom starring him called the Mannings with a mix of darkness and humor, but I know that is just my dream. Congrats to Roger Howarth!

I hope that Roger stays on GH as he definitely has been an asset to GH and has helped boost its ratings. I also like him as Todd on OLTL which has been his best role. I don’t have Showtime so can’t watch him there. If he acts on prime time shows and in movies, I will watch. He is one of the best actors on soaps so I hope he stays.

I love it when deserving actors get work–but, gee, when the writers of GH insist that RH be on GH almost every day (when he has 2 other jobs)–and give another great, deserving (if anyone is!) actor Genie Francis 3 appearances in 3 months, something is definitely amiss.

I really enjoyed him as Todd Manning on OLTL and GH. great actor, but as Franco, it is not good, because I still see him as Todd Manning even though he is playing Franco !!! That was a big mistake… same for his daughter, KiKi, Star, dont like overlapping!! Fast forward is the solution. sorry

I’ve loved RH since 1992 & I’ve followed him to ATWT & GH. I’ll watch anything he is in. I think he is the best lead actor in daytime & he should be in prime time & movies. I would love to see him on The Following

RH has what it takes to be on major screens I’m so happy for him congrats, you have the best talent on daytime TV since John Stamos on GH, you are amazing you can play any role especially the narcissistic crazy SOB its about time daytime stars are getting recognized for the big screen we sure need great talent on screen cause some of these great big “STARS” are getting too old and I’m tired of seeing them on screen and I said some of them especially that short guy that jumped on Oprah’s sofa ugh!

Kim Delaney on All My Children Primetime Reboot: “All They Have To Do Is Ask, and I’m There”

While Kim Delaney is currently appearing on General Hospital in the role of Jackie Templeton, and she just appeared in her new Lifetime movie, The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt of Justice, the actress revealed she would be up for appearing in the upcoming primetime revival in development of All My Children.

Delaney became soap-famous in the role of AMC’s Jenny Gardner from 1981-1984 before she was killed-off the show in the now iconic jet ski explosion.

Now even though Jenny died, Kim would be up for figuring out how the character could be resurrected or how she could take part in the primetime reboot of the ABC soap opera called, Pine Valley.

In an interview with Soaps.com, Kim shared on being part of the reboot: “All they have to do is ask, and I’m there.  Sure, Jenny died, but someone asked me the other day if we ever saw her body. So maybe she’s out there, somewhere… ”

Former All My Children stars and real-life duo, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are executive producers of Pine Valley along with Andrew Stearn.

So, would you like to see an alive and well Jenny Gardner, or some other role for Delaney, in the All My Children reboot? Comment below.

TONIGHT: Kim Delaney Stars in Lifetime’s ‘The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice’

Make sure to catch General Hospital and former All My Children and NYPD Blue star, Kim Delaney (Jackie, GH, Ex-Jenny, AMC) tonight on Saturday, February 20th when her highly-anticipated Lifetime movie debuts beginning at 8pm EST/7pm CST which marks the cable network’s 400th original movie.

In The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice, it tells the story of Mari Gilbert’s search for the truth behind what happened to her daughter Shannan, a sometime escort who disappeared after a ‘date’ on Long Island.

After Shannan (Katharine Isabelle, Hannibal) fails to come home, her mother Mari (Delaney) knows something is terribly wrong. Pleading to police to take her concerns seriously, she keeps pushing the police for answers. Mari’s insistence that her daughter not be overlooked eventually leads to a horror hidden on Long Island for more than a decade – 19 bodies of young women discovered buried in shallow graves along Ocean Parkway in the area of Jones Beach State Park. Though the search for the 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. The movie not only follows a mother’s tireless search for the truth, but it also digs deep into the murders, including Shannan’s, that have gone unsolved for so long.

Delaney’s film, executive produced by Deborah Norville, is based off real life-events that transpired in the early 2010’s where the crimes were never solved.

In an interview with 98.1 WOGL Radio’s Glenn Kalina, Delaney shared: “There is hope in the film… but you also want an answer… what happened to all of these girls?  My character just was relentless trying to find her (daughter) or find answers where she was.  They found a bunch of other bodies, and what they learned was that they were all escorts… and then they learned there was a possible serial killer.”

Check out a promo for the movie below.

Last week, ABC Daytime fans were thrilled to see some of the archival footage and performances from the ABC Daytime: Salutes Broadway Cares benefit concerts by those who were once in the mighty soap programming block that included: All My Children, One Life to Live and General Hospital. 

While only GH remains, viewers still loved seeing many of their favorites perform in the streaming event, ABC Daytime: Back on Broadway, from Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, which featured footage from those events that ran from 2005-2011 in front of a live audience in New York City.

The 2021 online event, which kicked-off on February 11th and streamed for four days, featured new content with daytime favorites including: Susan Lucci, Cameron Mathison, Anthony Geary, Kelly Ripa and more, plus performances from the past benefits, and an original dance performance from Finola Hughes (Anna Devane) on the set of GH.

John Dietrich, who directed each of the ABC Daytime Salutes Broadway Cares concerts, wrote and directed the stream. It was presented in partnership with ABC Owned Television Stations’ websites around the country with support from Good Morning America and The View.

According to Broadway World, in total, the ABC Daytime Back on Broadway event raised $130,565. The streaming total includes a matching donation of $50,000 made by Broadway Cares supporters The Dream Alliance.  Now, when combined with the seven-year run of the annual concerts, the ABC Daytime stars have raised $2,020,565 for Broadway Cares.

As part of the event week, Michael Fairman chatted with former One Life to Live star, Catherine Hickland (Ex-Lindsay Rappaport) about her performances over the years at the event, her role of Lindsay and her on-screen feud with Nora (Hillary B. Smith), and more.  You can watch it below.
