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.

All My Children Alum Ben Jörgensen Reportedly Dead At 51

According to his former All My Children castmate, Brian Gaskill. there is sad news in the soap world today.  Ben Jörgensen who played Kevin on All My Children and Chris on As the World Turns passed away on Tuesday at the age of 51, apparently via suicide, although unconfirmed as to his cause of death.

Gaskill, who played Bobby Warner while in Pine Valley shared via his Instagram:  “Sad news to report. Ben Jörgensen who played Kevin Sheffield on All My Children has past away at 51 years old.  My understanding is it was suicide.  I have heard he suffered from Bipolar disorder but as I have not spoke to him in years I do not know all the details. I just want to remember the good times we had on the set of All My Children 24 years ago. He was a good guy and had the courage to play a gay teenager on tv back when it was nowhere near as common to have representation as it is today. He was part of an award winning storyline…but mostly we just had some good times back then…my condolences go out to his friends and family. Please everybody hang in there and reach out for help if you need it. ”

Since the time of Brian’s posting, friends, colleagues and fans have been posting tributes and condolences on the actor’s Facebook page.  You can view that here.

 

In this heartbreaking photo below from Steven Bergman, during his time on As the World Turns, Ben is pictured with the late Nathaniel Marston, as well as Jaime Nicole Dudney and Terri Conn.

On All My Children, Ben was part of the important social issue storyline brought into the ABC legacy soap opera by the iconic Agnes Nixon, who was always trying to move the needle forward in daytime, as the character of Kevin was a gay high school student facing bullying, ridicule and discrimination for his sexuality.

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.
