Here is some exciting news!  Fan favorite and Daytime Emmy winner, Vincent Irizarry has reached an agreement with Prospect Park to become part of the All My Children reboot!  As has been reported, the series is headed for a return in 2013, thus bringing the Martin’s worst nightmare, Dr. David Hayward, back to the fold!

Irizarry announced the news to his excited fans on his facebook page today stating: “Happy to share that I just signed on with Prospect Park for the  All My Children reboot! Excited to bring dastardly Dr. David back to life, as he did for so many others, and to see my dear friends in Pine Valley once again. A great, big thank you to all the fans for your tenacity in keeping the hope alive. You’re awesome!!! Let’s all keep our fingers crossed together that it becomes a reality.”

This is potentially great news! I’m still waiting for some kind of definite confirmation from Prospect Park, or at least ABC/D. Why the silence?

Yeah! They should be shouting it from the rooftops if it’s a go so why aren’t they? I don’t trust them!

woo freakin’ hoo! Vincent Irizarry is certainly one of THE best of AMC! Great news and very exciting to think this might actually happen this time around!

As always, thanks, Michael for keeping us informed. I know I’m watching any PP news with great anticipation.

Now when they announce Erika Slezak signs on for OLTL you’ll probably hear me yell “Woo Hoo” from my home 😀

This is wonderful news if the show does indeed become reality this time. With Lindsay Hartley signed on also, I would love to see David & Cara together again with their baby! I hope Prospect Park can make a go of this.

This is all very hopeful, so I am cautiously optimistic. I will certainly look forward to seeing Dr. David again, as he is a great character, and played so very well by Vincent Irizarry, as only he can do!!! My fingers are soooooo crossed for both shows to come to fruition on the internet !!!!!

I think ABC was short sighted and showed how little regard they have for the fans by cancelling AMC & OLTL. I have not watched any of the replacement shows, nor will I. Which means I don’t see any of their commercials for their nighttime shows nor those of their sponsors. Because I don’t know what shows are on ABC everything I watch is either on CBS, TNT, USA, PBS, & NBC.

It would be interesting to see their daytime and nighttime numbers and see if others have also turned them off.

I’m being cautious on this news, I hope they pull it off but it won’t be the same..I’m hoping eventually if they do get it up and running they can get it on cable….also what happens to the Characters like John, Todd, Starr on GH? I want them back on OLTL but I understand the actors now have contracts with GH/ABC how does this work? Things there are messed up….this time around its going to be easier to get AMC up and running instead of OLTL< that ending wasnt messed with, RC totally messed up Jolie and Tea/Victor etc

I don’t want to be a Debbie Downer but we have heard this same news before in July 2011. There has to be an official joint statement from PP and ABC/D before I believe this!

I would much rather hear the news that Vincent has signed with GH. That would be a “sure thing” that we’d actually get to see him on our screens again. I still don’t trust PP to pull this off, and really, I doubt if I would bother going to my computer every day to watch a much-shortened program. PP is making all the right noises right now, but they also did that when they first bought the rights to the shows, and look how well that turned out. It only tied up some actors and prevented them from going to… Read more »

I would have loved him on GH also but they are pretty full up over there now. I think with all the news of producers and a few actors that I have faith they got their stuff together. I’m keeping a positive outlook until I hear differently 🙂 Keep the faith people. We need these shows back for the actors and crew.

Exciting news. Two great actors! What a great start! Sign up Debbie Morgan! Susan, even though is an icon, she can be recurring — her storylines were inane, unless her character is tweeked; her spunk can remain but do something. Bring back the Martins — Tad and newbies as his chidren. Bianca and newbies as her children! And Kendal and newbies as her teen sons! Can I have Dixie too! And another twister can hit town and Ryan and another suitor can come back to save the day!

Kelly Ripa Launches Podcast on SiriusXM

Former All My Children stars Kelly Ripa (ex-Hayley) and Mark Consuelos (ex-Mateo) can add launching a podcast to their extensive resume through their production company, Milojo Productions, and Sirius XM.

According to Deadline, Ripa will host Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa, where she will have in-depth conversations with celebrity guests. Depending on the subject matter, a specialist or expert could also join the episode to provide insight.

In a statement on her new hosting gig and show, Ripa expressed: “After 23 years of interviewing celebrities, authors, musicians and experts on live TV, the big takeaway is that the most compelling and unfiltered conversations happen off camera. I have dreamed of a platform where I can have these honest talks without all the fuss and filter of a camera. Now SiriusXM has made my dream a reality with a podcast featuring friends, both old and new, discussing a variety of topics we all face in life, while getting deep with some experts’ views and advice along the way. Not another podcast, this is off camera!”

New episodes of Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa will be available every week on Stitcher, the SXM App, and all major podcast listening platforms beginning in March.

Kelly will be quite busy co-hosting the syndicated talk show Live with Kelly and Ryan, in addition to Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa.

So, will you check out Kelly’s new podcast? Hope she has some All My Children alum on as guests? Comment below.

Michael B. Jordan Recalls His Acting Start as All My Children’s Reggie in SNL Opening Monologue

Last night, Michael B. Jordan hosted Saturday Night Live.  The Creed star, who is the director of the upcoming Creed III due out in March, took to the stage to deliver his opening monologue, and right off the top he mentioned his beginnings as All My Children’s Reggie.

Jordan portrayed Reggie from 2003-2006 on the ABC soap opera (his character was eventually adopted by Jack Montgomery).

When Michael hit the stage, he shared: “Yesterday, I had a crazy full-circle moment. We pre-shot some videos for the show and when I got to the studio I realized it was the exact same place where I shot one of my first acting roles on the soap opera All My Children.

He then tossed to a clip of his 16-year-old self in which Reggie says, “sometimes the animal in me gets kind of crazy” and then howls life a wolf at the end of the scene. Back to the SNL stage, Jordan said mockingly, “I’m pretty sure I hit puberty mid-howl.”

Jordan ended his monologue by looping it back to his early acting days on AMC, sharing: “I just want to say, I’m so grateful to be standing on this stage. Sometimes, I can take myself a little too seriously but tonight, I’m going to have fun, I’m just going to go for it. And maybe, just maybe let the inner animal get a little crazy.”

Watch Michael’s opening monologue below.  Then let us know, what did you think of the the AMC Reggie clip reference? Do you recall Michael’s days on the ABC daytime drama series? Comment below.

In a statement on the big soiree’, Burnett shared: “I’m so excited NBC decided to throw me a birthday party and invited all of my closest friends. I can’t wait to look back at so many wonderful moments throughout my career, I feel so lucky to share this night with everyone.”

“This special is going to be the best party ever,” said Mark Bracco, executive producer and president of Silent House Productions. “It will be an evening of music, comedy and dozens of big stars paying tribute to the one and only Carol Burnett.  We look forward to everyone at home celebrating right along with us.”

Viewers will see some of the funniest and most memorable moments of Burnett’s legendary career including moment from the acclaimed sketch comedy series The Carol Burnett Show.
