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.”

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.

Cady McClain Remembers ‘All My Children’ On Its 50th Anniversary Sharing: “I Will Always Be Grateful For the Experience, and For The Lifelong Relationship With All The Fans”

The beloved All My Children first aired on January 5th, 1970 on ABC and ran on the network until it was canceled back in September of 2013.  The next year, the show received a short-lived reboot online via Prospect Park.

One of the actresses to appear in both the network and online version was Daytime Emmy winning actress Cady McClain, who became soap-famous for her role as Dixie Cooney Martin and together with Michael E. Knight, became one of soaps all-time popular duos as Tad and Dixie.

While so many miss All My Children every single day and the indelible characters created by the late, great Agnes Nixon, McClain took to her Instagram on Sunday to relate what the soap opera meant to her in her life.

Here is what Cady shared along with a cover of Soap Opera Digest featuring Michael Knight and herself as Tad and Dixie: “Today I am celebrating the 50th Anniversary of “All My Children”! I started on the show when I had just turned 19 in the fall of 1988. I worked as a contract player thru 1996. I was back in the fall of 1997 again under contract and worked through 2001. That’s roughly 13 years. Then I came back for a year in 2006, then for a couple months in 2012. Then I did the internet version for six weeks and then… the show was done.

Wally Kurth Talks DAYS Dramatic Twists That Gave Justin a Heartbreaking Story, a New Romance, and Unforgettable Moments

For many years this show and the people on it were like family to me. The makeup artists as much mom’s as my own mom to me at times. And thanks to the work I was able to afford some art school and college as well. I saw many great shows (both American and International) that came to NYC, which opened my eyes to what performance could be. It allowed me to do a lot of Off-Broadway theater and roles in five Indie films while working my day job.

I was nominated three times and won my first Emmy. I made some lifelong friends like Michael E. Knight, James Patrick Stewart, Jill Larson, Penny Bergman, Julia Barr, Lonnie Quinn and many others both in front of and behind the scenes. And most importantly, I was able to take care of my wild but wonderful mother. ‘She who drove me nuts’ but impressed on me the importance of having art in ones life. Who read me poems and took me to museums. My child who died but who I so grateful to have known. Thank you ABC and all the producers and writers who supported me and my work. Because of your support my life was richer, broader, more interesting. I will always be grateful for the experience …. and for the lifelong relationship with all the fans! Massive shout out to the daytime fans who continue to support me in my projects. When I meet one of you on the street I am truly grateful for your time and that we got to share some really special moments together. . .”
