Deadline. com is reporting that Prospect Park has reached out to All My Children’s Susan Lucci (Erica Kane), and the Daytime Emmy Award winning actress has received a good offer to continue on AMC when it moves to the web.  Apparently, Lucci has been offered basically the same salary she currently has at ABC.  Lucci is reportedly currently mulling over the offer.

The item from Deadline also reported, “While there will probably be some budget trimming due to the medium switch, it looks like AMC and OLTL‘s’ new producers are stepping up to keep the shows’ biggest stars and fan favorites. AMC and OLTL are scheduled to relaunch online in the first quarter of 2012. Prospect Park is also in talks with cable networks about carving out a traditional TV window.” This sounds promising for Lucci and for AMC fans!

I think Susan Lucci should do whatever is necessary to remain on AMC and she needs to take a pay cut. Prospect Park is attempting to save AMC and she owes alot to her loyal fans and AMC. Everyone was in an outroar when ABC cancelled AMC and OLTL, now Prospect Park has stepped up to keep it going. Even if she does not want to stay forever, she needs to help get it off the ground. Mulling it over, hmph… Do it for the fans Susan.

Susan has recently taken pay cuts while at ABC. We have to be fair and respectful to her as well. THANK YOU!! Susan deserves that! She also has an offer from Desperate Housewives for this final year of the show. She can probably do both. Have FAITH in Susan. I do!! She LOVES her fans and always does right by us! I totally TRUST SUSAN!! I AM WILLING TO PAY TO WATCH AMC & OLTL. WE PAY FOR CRAPPY MOVIES, SO THE SOAP FAMILIES THAT I HAVE GROWN UP WITH SINCE THE EARLY 1960’S ARE WELL WORTH IT!! ALSO, THANK… Read more »

Susan has already “done it for the fans”–several times. She’s had at least two pay cuts in the last five or six years, and one of them was reportedly substantial. I don’t think viewers need to be calling on her to do any more than she’s done.

All My Children Alum Finn Wittrock To Headline ‘Green Lantern’

From Pine Valley to the DC Universe! Now comes word that former All My Children star, Finn Wittrock (Ex-Damon Miller) will take on the role of Guy Gardner/Green Latern on the upcoming HBO Max series, Green Lantern from Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Brothers Television.

According to Deadline who dropped the casting news, Wittrock’s Guy Gardner/Green Lantern is “a hulking mass of masculinity, and, as rendered in the comics, an embodiment of 1980s hyper-patriotism. And yet, Guy is somehow likable.”

In the premise of the series, Green Lantern reinvents the classic DC property through a story spanning decades and galaxies, beginning on Earth in 1941 with the very first Green Lantern, secretly gay FBI agent Alan Scott, and 1984, with cocky alpha male Guy Gardner (Wittrock) and half-alien Bree Jarta. They’ll be joined by a multitude of other Lanterns — from comic book favorites to never-before-seen heroes.”

Previously, Finn received Emmy nominations for his work on American Horror Story: Freak Show and for Versace: American Crime Story.

So what do you think of Finn’s new role? Comment below.

Daytime fans remember him fondly as the son of Jesse (Darnell Williams) and Angie Hubbard (Debbi Morgan), Frankie, on All My Children.  And now, actor Cornelius Smith Jr., is set to join a major limited series based on the acclaimed nonfiction book by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Sheri Fink, about the the first five days following Hurricane Katrina made landfall entitled Five Days at Memorial.

Written by John Ridley and Carlton Cruse, Smith will play a doctor, (something he is very familiar with playing since Frankie Hubbard was a doctor in Pine Valley!) named Dr. Bryant King, an internist and one of the few doctors of color at the hospital, who finds himself very much in the middle of the crisis.  He will headline the show alongside Vera Farmiga and Adepero Oduye.

Deadline broke the casting news.

So, looking forward to seeing Cornelius back on our screens? Do you remember his work as Dr. Frankie Hubbard on All My Children? Comment below.
