Motion picture star, Josh Duhamel will make his highly anticipated return to All My Children on the August 4th episode to reprise his Daytime Emmy Award winning role of  Pine Valley’s favorite con artist, Leo du Pres, who allegedly died in 2003.

As many recall, Leo was deeply in love with Greenlee played by Rebecca Budig, when he presumably perished over the falls! ABC Daytime is teasing that Duhamel’s return promises storyline twists and turns that All My Children fans have grown to know and love.

ABC released some principal photography today of Josh in a few scenes with Rebecca Budig and this solo shot at the doorway.

Are you looking forward to some Leo? We are!

So, after taking a glance at these photos, what do you think brings Leo back? Is he a ghost or is he real?

My first couple love on amc was Leo and Greenlee. I am so excited Josh is returning. It’s great that after all his success that he is still so grateful for is time on amc. So very humble, I just love that about him. I prefer Leo to be alive but if I haven to take a ghost it’s worth it just to have Josh back on my datytime screen!

I want him to be real so bad and I want Greenlee to run off with Leo to Paris when the show’s television broadcast ends…it’s how it always should have been. These two were soulmates but unfortunately…I think Greenlee dreams about Leo but I still think he maybe alive but I don’t think he reunites with Greenlee in the end which means things will not end as they always should have which is the worst thing to happen when a show ends….even if it’s just on TV and will continue online, I don’t know that Budig won’t continue with the… Read more »

Hell yes they belong together! Greenlee should end her run on TV with LEO, not Ryan!!! Anything less will be totally unacceptable to all us GreenLeo fans out there! (I don’t think Rebecca Budig will be continuing online. So it would be VERY easy to write a happy ending for this most beloved AMC couple!) I’m not planning on watching the online version, so this is the end of the line for me. Greenlee HAS TO end up with Leo; she just has to!!!

She might continue online, especially since her good friend Cameron wrote on his twitter account that if he is offered to stay and go online he will. He wants to stay with amc. Rebecca and him have been friends for years and they love working together. I’ve seen Rebecca in a few other things, and Cameron too and though I love them dearly as Ryan and Greenlee, they won’t really make it anywhere else. Just like Susan Lucci, she tried to leave and do other stuff but the stuff was short lived and she ended up back. It’s weird with… Read more »

In light of Rebecca’s recent interview with TVLine.com, it seems highly unlikely that she will continue online, regardless if Cameron continues or not. (IMO, I don’t think Cameron will either.) As for what they can achieve outside of soaps, I don’t agree with you. Cameron is doing well with his GMA gig & Kelly Ripa even mentioned him as a possible replacement for Regis. I think he would be just fine if he chooses not to continue online. As for Rebecca Budig, I think she will do very well. She’s just as talented an actor as Josh Duhamel is. So… Read more »

Josh I’m glad your doing AMC before it goes off air, however, I’m not happy that you are being paired with that horrible actress who plays Greenlee, her bug eyes just annoy me.

It’s hard to see than AMC is going off the air but it will continue online, it will not be the same but I’m happy to see everyone who is returning Can’t wait to see how it all ends. I’m angry at ABC because they are making a big mistake in canceling AMC because they want to put a food reality show in its place, thats why there is Food Network Channel, they are comming up with some of the most stupid shows like cupcake wars, cake boss,Have Cake, Will Travel, last cake standing ect. All I know is that… Read more »

Greenlee has been with Ryan longer then she was ever with Leo. Ryan and Greenlee have great chemistry and if Josh Dumal had stayed all these years, we all know that they would not be a couple any longer.

They got to stop this scifi station crap they’re pulling on us.

First off, Ryan and Greenlee has no chemistry at all. And Leo will always be the love of Greenlee’s life. And if Leo was alive today, there is no way she would take a second look at Ryan. Because Ryan doesn’t hold a candle to Leo. It’s really quite simple.

I respectfully disagree. I’ve watched all the couples and yes, Rebecca and Josh has chemistry but so does Rebecca with Cameron. Josh left the show almost 10 years ago and Rebecca was worried about doing scenes with him again as she did not know if they could re-create the same chemistry that had years (and years) ago. Basically all this Leo and Greenlee stuff is old news as they were only together about a year to a year and a half and then he was gone….. Greenlee and Ryan have been together much longer and I love their stuff in… Read more »

I just got done watching the All My Children episode of where Leo appears to Greenlee in a dream. I was so upset to find out that ABC did that. He should have been alive. But I’d really like to believe he is because in the first picture up above, they’re showing Leo leaning up against the wall at the Pine Valley Hospital so maybe he is alive. I hope he is alive and he comes knocking at Ryan’s door asking for Greenlee or at least goes looking for her to see how she’s doing. If he doesn’t, I’ll be… Read more »

I don’t think he is alive. After watching the scene I came away with the feeling that Leo said if she had to be with someone it might as well as be Ryan. Ryan and Leo were best bust and Leo remembers how much Greenlee wanted Ryan before they got together. As he said he just wants her to be happy. I did love the flashbacks and remember how beautiful Rebecca’s hair was and how much better it suits her. I’ve always loved David’s character and how much love he had for his brother. I loved him years ago when… 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.
