This  week soap fans learned some beginning information on a new online destination for some very soapy programming entitled SudsvilleTV.com.

Yesterday, On-Air On-Soaps posted an interview with its creators, former soap scribe Meg Kelly, and entertainment marketing guru Joseph Craig, where they revealed that a new soap opera about two families will be at the new platform’s epicenter, surrounded by16 other ancillary shows.

Today, the soap opera was revealed to be named Year Rounders, and in fact, Kelly is looking at a very familiar daytime soap opera face to be a part of the cast… Daytime Emmy winner Darnell Williams (Jessie Hubbard) formerly of All My Children!

Kelly told On-Air On-Soaps about the prospect of having Williams on SudsvilleTV.com: “There is a really fun connection between myself and Darnell Williams.  Back in the day, my husband Tony Rizzoli played Murray the loan shark in Angie (Debbi Morgan) and Jessie’s storyline on AMC.  It’s so fun to be talking to Darnell about the possibility of him playing a role on my soap, Year Rounders.  He is a wonderful actor and a great guy.”

SudsvilleTV.com launched a sign-up page on Wednesday where fans can anticipate some interesting and exciting updates in the coming months.

What do you think of the prospect of seeing Darnell Williams in a new online soap opera?  Comment below!

I’d love to see Darnell back in a soap, and I’d love it even more if some of his former AMC cast mates would join him. I miss seeing that talented cast in a serial drama. I know Darnell is back in NYC these days and if some of the other east coast-based soap actors would join him, I’d be thrilled.

oohh this good!
I’m sure he will not wanted as with Y&R..

geezz Y&R brought in one of the renowned super couples of all time; Angie and Jesse..
The powerful actress Debby Morgan; Y&R turned her into drug addict Hilliby..
Darnell was turned into a physical therapist, not much..
They were used as bait to bring in viewers and then let go..
SHAME on CBS/Y&R..
Neighbor Emma has spoken!!

I wouldn’t blame Darnell if he’s a liitle skeptical of online soap ventures. He probably still has his doubts due to Prospect Park.

Prospect Park was attempting to bring established TV/broadcast soaps to the web in their original format…
Sudsville is created for the web, it will do well..
A web series hit, for sure!!

hope it gets more soap stars as time goes by..

Darnell Williams is a friggen gem of an actor. When he appeared in Pine Valley as Jessie Hubbard us AMC fans knew that they were seeing something different, something special, but more importantly, something important. Suffice to say, when Jessie appeared on screen, us white suburbanites and somewhat insulated teenagers, sat up and paid attention. Damn, was he something–he was the lightening in our world which jolted us to attention. And he still is…or could be if someone gave him a chance. I was disappointed that Y&R did not use him to his fullest potential. And while I am happy… Read more »

Harry- I couldn’t agree more. He really is one of the best actors out there. I’d never seen anything like him on screen when he was on AMC, and every time he’s on, I make a point of watching.

GH should bring him on as the new commissioner or a WSB agent.

Mr. Williams is so authentic and genuine in his portrayals. He and Debbi Morgan are gold together. I would forget I was watching a TV show, they are so genuine.

As a lifetime supporter of Darnell Williams, I just want to see him back in front of a camera, bringing his brilliance to life in his characters he portrays. He is gifted, for sure. He and Debbi need to do a play together. I have the utmost respect for him. He is so great.

I have Always loved DW so of coarse, I am beyond excited about the possibility of seeing him in his element again!! I was hoping he would be offered a role in one of Tyler Perry’s projects. I will most definitely be watching this new show if Darnell is involved!

Mark Consuelos on the All My Children Primetime Reboot: “I Know They’re Going to Bring Back Some Fan Favorites”

On Friday, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC) was a guest on the CBS afternoon series, The Talk, where he shared his excitement and some insight into the upcoming All My Children primetime reboot, Pine Valley, in development at ABC..

As previously reported, Mark and his wife Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley, AMC) are two of the executive producers on the project.

Consuelos shared on the reboot:All My Children was such a big part of my life and my wife’s life. And you know, I met my wife there obviously, had kids, became a young man on that show, and we got the opportunity to reboot the primetime version and the idea was brought to us, and we’re so excited.  Of all the things that we’ve ever announced that we’re going to do, this is one of the biggest responses we’ve got from our fans. They’re so excited.  It’s a big piece of TV that’s been missing for such a long time, and we’re going to bring it back.”

When avid soap fan and The Talk co-host, Sheryl Underwood, posed a major question to Consuelos that has been on longtime All My Children fans minds, she got a solid response from him.

Sheryl was trying to get some tea on who might appear in the reboot, when she asked, “Is it going to be the Cortlandts and the Warners? Is it going to be everybody?” Consuelos then responded with: “I know they’re going to bring back some fan favorites, and it will take place in Pine Valley, and I’m really, really excited.”

You can watch a portion of Mark’s virtual visit on The Talk below.

Then let us know, which AMC characters do you want to see back and on the primetime series, Pine Valley?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Will AMC Favorite Josh Duhamel Replace Armie Hammer in JLo’s Film, ‘Shotgun Wedding’?

After a controversial few weeks, which saw Armie Hammer exit his leading role opposite Jennifer Lopez in Liongate’s upcoming romantic-comedy/adventure film Shotgun Wedding, it appears the motion picture has found its replacement if the ink is signed.

Former All My Children and Daytime Emmy winner Josh Duhamel (Ex-Leo) has been picked as Hammer’s replacement.

The film tells the story of a couple that gathers their families for a destination wedding even as they get cold feet. If that wasn’t enough, the entire party then gets taken hostage.

Lopez and Hammer were headed for the film shoot in the Dominican Republic when salacious DM’s rumored to be attributed to  Hammer came to light on social media and derailed the films for now.  However, if Duhamel signs on to the film, they could can retain its start date in February

Hammer had responded to the allegations against him and the DM’s by sharing: “I’m not responding to these bullshit claims but in light of the vicious and spurious online attacks against me, I cannot in good conscience now leave my children for 4 months to shoot a film in the Dominican Republic,”

A Lionsgate spokesperson  also responded to Hammer and his exit sharing: “Given the imminent start date of Shotgun Wedding, Armie has requested to step away from the film, and we support him in his decision.”

The Hollywood Reporter first broke the casting news update.

So what do you think of Duhamel as Hammer’s replacement to play opposite JLO? Comment below.
