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 »

I still can’t understand why ABC wouldn’t sell the rights to NBC? greedy! I WILL not watch ABC once the soaps finish! Who the heck needs another cooking show? And what kind of stupid name is that anyways? “The Chew”? Who wants to watch people do a reality show on food? Bunch of swamp donkey’s!! I’m soooooo mad!!!!! YES put it on the food network!

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 »

AMC Alum Sarah Michelle Gellar Reflecting on Her Time on Soaps: “Anything I Can Do to Continue the Legacy I’m Very Proud Of”

Daytime fans knew of Sarah Michelle Gellar her way before her Buffy the Vampire Slayer days, when she stepped on to the small screen as Erica’s (Susan Lucci) troubled daughter Kendall Hart on ABC’s All My Children. 

Gellar played the role from 1993 to 1995, and made a brief return in 2011 as the show came to its conclusion on ABC. Additionally, Sarah won a Daytime Emmy for her performance in the Outstanding Younger Actress category in 1995.

Sarah has partnered with Lysol for their brand’s Disinfecting Wipes “Buy One, Donate One” program. where now through September 26, whenever a pack of Lysol Disinfecting Wipes is purchased, another pack will automatically be donated to an under-resourced school through the Kids In Need Foundation.

The program is aimed to help curb the spread of illness-causing germs in schools this back-to-school season, a total of up to 16 million packs of Lysol Disinfecting Wipes will be donated to Title I schools across the country.

The program is the latest component of Lysol’s HERE for Healthy Schools initiative. Started in 2019 with the mission to help curb the spread of preventable illness and to help kids miss less school so they are able to learn, grow and thrive, HERE for Healthy Schools has provided educational materials for students and Lysol disinfecting supplies for educators and administrators to more than 49,000 schools across the country. This year, HERE for Healthy Schools is focused on helping to protect children, educators and parents as they make their big return to in-person learning in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Speaking with TV Insider on the partnership, Gellar recalled her time on the soaps and how it changed her career and outlook, noting: “it was the training ground for the rest of my career.”

She went on to say: “I made incredible friends at that time and I learned incredible work habits, and soap operas are an intense amount of work, and I’m incredibly grateful for that time and the people that I met.  We live in a world now where my kids don’t even really know what a soap opera is, so anything I can do to continue the legacy I’m very proud of.”

So, do you remember Sarah’s time on AMC? What do you think of her thoughts on her time on the soaps? Comment below.
