Opening on Christmas Day is the highly-anticipated new movie from director and writer David O. Russell (Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle), who not only gathered his heavyweight all-star cast led by Jennifer Lawrence, Robert DeNiro, Bradley Cooper, Virginia Madsen, Edgar Ramirez, Isabella Rossellini and Diane Ladd, but also cast four beloved actors known for their work in daytime dramas!

GH’s Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Laura Wright (Carly), Knots Landing and GH star, Donna Mills (Ex-Abby and Madeline), and All My Children’s icon, Susan Lucci (Ex-Erica) all appear throughout the film.

20th Century Fox has just released a few promotional teasers of clips from the faux soap opera. “The Joyful Storm” which is an intergral part to the storytelling.  In the movie JOY, Jennifer Lawrence plays Joy Magnano, the real life inventor of The Miracle Mop!

The movie description teases the action as: “JOY is the wild story of a family across four generations centered on the girl who becomes the woman who founds a business dynasty and becomes a matriarch in her own right. Betrayal, treachery, the loss of innocence and the scars of love, pave the road in this intense emotional and human comedy about becoming a true boss of family and enterprise facing a world of unforgiving commerce. Allies become adversaries and adversaries become allies, both inside and outside the family, as Joy’s inner life and fierce imagination carry her through the storm she faces.”

Now after the jump, watch Laura Wright and Susan Lucci is a couple offerings from what JOY audiences can expect when the faux soap is integrated into the film.  And, come back Monday to On-Air On-Soaps for a very special feature interview with Maurice Benard, Wright, and Donna Mills!

Lucci is famous for her face lifts.. She’s near 70 and looking good..
When l get old I want the number of her face doctor..
I thought Joy Magnano sells coat hangers,,
It looks good, I will watch..
It mentioned humour, I suspect that will be from the “The Joyful Storm” Soap Opera ” part of the movie, even the title of the soap is a bit humorous.

The good thing about Lucci is that she does not look like she has had face lifts. They were done in moderation; not drastic. She can close those beautiful, Italian, bedroom eyes. I simply love this woman. She does not live too far from me; always friendly; always a lady.
Some of us may not like Carly, but Laura Wright’s acting speaks for itself. She, too, has a very pretty face….natural, no work.
These two forces deserve every good thing coming their way.

Saw JOY at a special preview and the movie opens with the fake soap… it took a minute for me to realize that it was Laura and Susan… Laura was really great and I think is a much better actress than she’s given credit for .. and although Maurice’s bit is small, he’s so not Sonny that it was jarring… I’d forgotten that he doesn’t actually speak with that voice/inflection that he gives Sonny.

The movie itself is quite good although a little downbeat until close to the end. Bring hankies.

so far from what i’ve seen from the clips above, it looks like they are going off the stereotype of soap acting being over the top and cheesy, but like i said i ‘m just saying that from the clip i’ve seen above, i could be wrong still seems like everytime soap are seen in this fashion its to make it clear how cheesy soaps are and the people who watch it. i won’t really know till i see the movie though so who knows..

I did not realize that we, as soap watchers and fans, were regarded as cheesy. I suppose whoever thinks that, does not realize that we are the most intelligent bunch on the planet, right, Aria?
We may disagree, sometimes get our hackles up. But we communicate….can said people say the same? I don’t think any of us is cheesy. My husband says I have an addiction to my soaps (lol), but, he knows better than to call me cheesy.

I, too, don’t think of myself as “cheesy” – I am the first one to laugh at myself for watching DOOL and I often think, “oh gosh, this storyline is absurd” and I’ve been pretty vocal about my feelings here. We watch these shows for the sheer entertainment value and to see where the storylines are headed. At times they are silly, at times compelling, but generally entertaining. I enjoy watching actors work, I have little interest in viewing some inane reality show such as “the bachelor” or “the biggest loser” –

I am totally confused as to what this movie is about and if it makes any sense based on what I’ve read and heard on TV and here. I hope it’s not as disjointed and crazy and even stupid as it seems.

Lol, Lin. It probably is stupid and disjointed; but, we’re us d to that, no? LOL.

The Chew Cancelled After 7 Seasons; A Slice Of Justice For All My Children Fans?

Karma is a bitch! ABC announced yesterday that the foodie series The Chew has been axed after seven seasons. 

The Chew lost significant viewers when ABC fired main co-host chef, Mario Batali after reports of alleged sexual harassment over many years. Clinton Kelly, Carla Hall, and Michael Symon have remained the regular series hosts.

In addition, The Chew dropped 17% with women in the 18-49 demo and this has been its least watched season since its debut in 2011.  As ABC Daytime fans know, The Chew replaced iconic soap opera All My Children, when ABC made the decision to cancel the beloved soap and replace it with the food show.

So, let’s take a look at the numbers: All My Children lasted 41 years, while The Chew lasted 7 seasons. Hmm …

ABC noted that The Chew will cease production at the end of this season, but will continue to air until September with all-new episodes in June.  In addition, ABC announced that Good Morning America will expand to three hours.  Thus, switching up the ABC morning line-up.

So, are you glad that The Chew got fried?  Is this justice for All My Children fans who miss their beloved Pine Valley?  Comment below.

All My Children Alum Kim Delaney Joins The Cast of CHICAGO FIRE!

Photo Credit: HutchinsPhoto.com

Pine Valley’s Jenny Gardner, who is all grown up and had a successful career in primetime television and films, has landed a primo role on NBC’s hit drama, Chicago Fire!

Casting news has revealed that Kim Delaney is joining the show in Season 6 where she will play the role of Jennifer Sheridan, the mother of Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney).

According to Deadline, Kim’s new role as Jennifer Sheridan is described as “warm, scripture-quoting and church-going. At one point she may have partied like it was 1979, but now it looks like she’s on the path of the straight and narrow. If you ask her, she’s moved on from the past, namely her messy divorce from her ex-husband Benny (Treat Williams), but old habits die very hard.”

Chicago Fire is currently on hiatus until after the Winter Olympics, when it begins again on March 1st.  As viewers know, in the last episode prior to the break, Kelly and Casey (Jesse Spenver) were seen jumping off a roof of a building while it was in flames in an exciting cliffhanger. (more…)
