Thorsten Kaye (Zach Slater, AMC)  spoke with soap columnist Carolyn Hinsey for her latest blog on the Tainted Dreams/NYC Brand Productions website about his upcoming role in Michelle Stafford’s hit web series, The Stafford Project and if he heard any news on the status of the second season of All My Children.

In regards to AMC, Kaye commented, “Nothing thing is in place. Eden [Riegel, Bianca] is about to have a baby and my love interest (Pilar Garces, Lea) is about to have a baby. We’re going to have to call it All My Children-en-en-en.

However,  a source close to Prospect Park told On-Air On-Soaps, “They are hard at work prepping the second season of All My Children.”

As for Kaye’s upcoming role in The Stafford Project, Thorsten will play a french guy who is on a date with “Michelle”, and as the actors explains,  “I play this French guy who is a little off – like most French people – but this guy is moreso. Michelle is having dinner with him and her producer comes over and says the guy is wanted for the disappearance of his girlfriend.”

Thorsten’s episode of The Stafford Project will debut this coming Monday, October 14th! Are you looking forward to seeing Michelle Stafford and Thorsten Kaye in scenes together?  Thoughts on the return of AMC?  Comment below!

I would LIKE to be more positive regarding the return of AMC for the second season but Prospect Park once again has any possible detail shrouded in dark mystery.

Not one actor has tweeted about any new scripts, any new taping schedules, any production dates, nothing. It’s as though every actor has been asked to refrain from making any comment whatsoever. Usually, the AMC actors are very communicative with the fans but it’s not a good sign when mum’s the word. If the show is due to go back into Production on October 21st (that’s one rumor) then we should have heard something by now. I don’t know how others feel, but I don’t have a great vibe going regarding the return for Season two of AMC but please… Read more »

I Agree! At first it was mid-August, but PP originally said 5 one hour episodes a week too. So why no news from anybody, like here, about OLTL or AMC coming back or in production? I don’t really care about SP or GH, sorry. IMHO PP should grow up and an get on with producing OLTL/AMC. Forget the lawsuit and just make the show. I don’t get why they can’t, or won’t. Seems lame. Yes ABC screwed PP but now PP is screwing over the fans and themselves. I read the court papers and IMO I can’t see anyone taking… Read more »

Honestly, I think it boils down to money. I think the shows are very expensive to produce — even the new “half hour” inceptions. Of course, that is truly conjecture on my part, I don’t really know what’s going on any more than anyone else seems to. Even though Season one of the new On-line ALL MY CHILDREN did very well, it may be a while before they can return to production. Fans are getting frustrated and aggravated (myself included) from not even having our questions dignified with an official response.

I had no doubt that AMC would return and have a great second season.. It was very obvious AMC was doing very well and and it was logical it would return.. As for OLTL hmmm time will tell.. however there is always another season for its return if not this season.. ABC was supporting 3 soaps.. and in this era of struggling daytime tv it was inevitable that 2 soaps would have to close.. ABC can handle 1 soap but ludicrous to hold 3 soaps.. Perhaps PP can handle 1 soap but not 2 at this time, it could be… Read more »

I am pretty sure you mean obstacles not obstetricals unless you are referring to labor and delivery!

Well in either case there’s been no “labor or delivery” on ALL MY CHILDREN regarding the “so called” second season.
The fact that the actress who plays Bianca is expecting a baby should have little impact on the Production resuming in a timely manner, Biance is always out of the country or visiting Kendall anyway and they could easily write around her temporary absense.

I am looking forward to AMC and Zach returning to the web soap ….hope PP will be presenting it very soon. Will The Stafford Project be on Hulu.com or some other web station? I sure want to see Thorsten when he appears on this show this coming Monday, October 14th. He is a wonderful actor and I wish him the best of luck in the future!!!!! Can’t wait for AMC and hope OLTL will get a chance to come back also!!!!! Thanks for keeping us up to date as always, Michael ….. as a big soap fan I really appreciate… Read more »

What Prospect Park has been doing to the fans is really disrespectful both to the cast of AMC and OLTL and fans. I hate to say this but for myself I am over those soaps. Thank God GH lived on otherwise I would not be watching soaps.

We should all cancel HULU PLUS, those of us who subscribed to it to get ALL MY CHILDREN. Let’s be realistic, Prospect Park has not had the decency to release even a statement, albeit they are great for issuing vague and misleading ones most of the time. If ALL MY CHILDREN were going back into production for October 21st, we would have heard something from one of the actors who are generally communicative with the fans, which is more than we can say for Prospect Park. Sorry to dwell on the negative here but let’s face it, things don’t appear… Read more »

Well, considering that he just accepted a new Role on another popular soap, I doubt that the future of ALL MY CHILDREN on line is very promising. I’m sad about it, but the silence from Prospect Park is deafening. No one seems to know anything but let’s be honest, it isn’t very encouraging News for fans of ALL MY CHILDREN.

Is the Michael Fairman Interactive Radio Program still going on? I only ask because I don’t see any announcements regarding interviews, updates, etc.

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.

Chadwick Boseman, ‘Black Panther’ Star and the Original Reggie On AMC, Dies At 43

In just heartbreaking news in an already dismal 2020, one of the brightest motion picture stars, Chadwick Boseman has died at the age of 43.

Boseman was battling colon cancer for the last four years of his life.  According to his rep, Boseman was diagnosed in 2016 with stage 3 colon cancer and his battle continued as it progressed to stage 4

Chadwick passed away with his wife and family by his side in his home.   In a shocking revelation, all of the movie performances in the last four years he has filmed were done in between chemotherapy and countless surgery.

Boseman is best known for his groundbreaking role as King T’Challa  in Black Panther.   His performance was the first ever Marvel Studio movie headlined by a black actor.  The film was nominated for an Academy Award.   He first appeared as the character in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War.

Most recently, Chadwick appeared in the Spike Lee’s Vietnam War drama Da 5 Bloods, and this year he’s due to appear opposite Viola Davis Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” the film adaptation of the August Wilson play.  The actor starred in other films, including playing James Brown in Get On Up and Jackie Robinson in 42,  and the lead role in Marshall.

However, Boseman actually got his start on All My Children when he was the original actor cast in the role of Reggie Porter.  He appeared on the soap for only one week before the role was recast with none other than Michael B. Jordan, and their paths could eventually cross years later on multiple film projects.

In an interview in 2019, Boseman revealed what led him to be fired from All My Children stating:  “When I got it (the part), I was like, ‘This is not part of my manifesto. This is not part of what I want to do. How can I make it work?’ Because with a soap opera, you don’t know the full scope of what’s gonna happen — you don’t know where they’re gonna take the character, because they don’t always know where the character is going. And because of that, there’s possibly room for me to adjust this and change it and make it so it’s stereotypical on the page but not on the screen.”

For Boseman had issues with how Reggie was portrayed and how it was written with racial stereotypes.  In story, Reggie was a young gang member who was adopted by Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) and her husband, Jackson Montgomery (Walt Willey). “I remember going home and thinking, ‘Do I say something to them about this? Do I just do it?’ And I couldn’t just do it. “I had to voice my opinions and put my stamp on it. And the good thing about it was, it changed it a little bit for Michael B. Jordan.”  Apparently the producers told Boseman he was too much trouble but took some of his suggestions on the role moving forward.
