    I hope they can get a few more members of the cast of both shows as the cast right now looks a little thin on All My Children.

    I was thinkg the same in regards to AMC! it doesn’t seem as many want to return and Susan Lucci is STILL MIA! I don’t think they can afford her.

    Jennifer replied

    Susan is doing a TV show. She can’t leave it as there is a contract for her, which she did before all of this coming back alive came about.. I wish she could come back though!!!

    sarah replied

    i agree about amc am glas thor kaye will be on but hope they bring am as kendal
    hopefully

    Thin? It’s two pounds away from organ failure lol! It so upsetting and it’s because AMC was in the wrong hands for too long. The show was hastily moved to the west coast and ABC never supported It the way it should have. Now So much time has passed since ABC was a beautifully told storY about people we loved. Let’s hope it’s not too late. Tune in tomorrow!

    AMC’s list is looking so sad. But that’s because most of the actors located to LA for the series’ move. And unlikely that a lot will once again re-locate. So getting original cast members is going to be harder. So I’m expecting a good bunch of recasts to that series or a complete re-vision of what’s happening on it. I hope more sign on like Christina Bennett Lind (Bianca), Sarah Glendening (Marissa), Rebecca Budig (Greenlee) and people like that!

    Dixiemartin replied

    Let’s not forget the main players too. Tad, Dr. Martin, Kendal, and Jr. What about Erica and Jackson. Remember the last scene before it ended someone was shot and it looked like Erica

    Reply

    Scott (ATWT Fan) replied

    I could care less if Erica or Jackson returned. Both characters were bore for me. JR/Jake got annoying for me, too.

    Patrick replied

    this is the biggest surprise…. why no word on Tad…. ?

    Brooke would make an excellent grand dame… along with Opal.

    Mark F. replied

    I could do without Rebecca Budig, to be honest. Couldn’t stand her character or Cameron Mathison’s Ryan, but I would love for Christina and Sarah to sign on!! And of course, Susan Lucci!!

    Scott (ATWT Fan) replied

    I could care if Susan returned to the show. Not a fan.

    Mitchell1660 replied

    If Susan came back; great. If not, won’t be watching. Hard to imagine Pine Valley without Erica Kane…

    nessmess50 replied

    I couldn;t stand Ryan and Greenlea either,i hope they do not come back…I liked OLTL better than AMC anyway….AMC was very boring with the storylines they had…

    Patrick replied

    I sincerely hope Christina and Sarah come back…. it took some time… and took awhile… but, THESE TWO, MADE THEM THEIR OWN. It was so loving, moving, and familial… A treat to watch.

    Bianca and Marissa!

    Exactly. Carlivati would be a hard act to follow in any case, but I am unimpressed so far with the writers who have been selected. Neither Klein nor Bedsow Horgan made much of an impression when they were (separately) headwriters for As the World Turns.

    Your right Alan. Oltl had the best writers who truly understood these characters. Any new writers will need some luck , support, and talent! I hope they have it all!

    I was shocked and beyond thrilled at that “Prospect” of Thorsten joining the AMC Reboot. I thought there was no way they would get him. Prospect Park has done a fantastic job thus far of getting some of the great actors of AMC past to really make the future one successful. Each actor chosen has had a key role on the show in the past.

    Reply

    Tracy replied

    I agree completely! So glad to hear of Thorsten Kaye and Tuck Watkins, wasn’t sure if either would sign on. I hope OLTL also grabs Trevor St. John and that GH keeps Roger Hawarth. There is so much story to be told about the Lord twins and crossovers between the two shows would be mutually beneficial. I also hope OLTL signs Ilene Kristen as Roxy. Her humor, like Tuck’s is amazing.

    But what about Walt Willey aka jackson Montgomery? I guess Erica isn’t coming back, so she must be the one shot. I know Walt has posted that he has not been contacted. Hmmmm.

    Reply

    Johnny replied

    You know, that’s a good question. I did not know that Walt Willey was not approached ~ either they are allowing his character of Jackson to exit, as he did on the last show, and let it go at that – I don’t know. But if Susan Lucci chooses not to reprise the character of Erica Kane, which somehow I suspect since she is busy with other projects, then where will the storyline of Erica and Jackson go? Maybe this new inception of the show will go in many directions, but they need the basic characters to at least get it going one way or another. We are accustomed to smaller and supporting roles being recast (I mean there have been several Bianca[s], each of the good in different ways) but can we accept the major characters being portrayed by an all new cast, I don’t know – is it better to “write around” them until they come aboard?

    Kind of a confused, how can the age Matthew and Destiny and not age Danielle or Jack. Otherwise the cast looks great. I just wish they woudl bering back the original actors for Matthew and Destiny.

    Reply

    Elhu replied

    Jennifer, my EXACT thought as well !!!! I am thrilled with all of those already signed on to return to each show, but why on earth would they not want the original Matthew and Destiny, since they are bringing Danni and Jack back. I know they will now be parents of an infant, but I can see Eddie Alderson and Shenell Edmonds playing those parts quite well. I know Eddie moved to the West Coast, and if it were the decision of both actors not to return, then I will be disappointed, yet would understand, as it is their choice, but I did not read anything about either of them turning down an offer to return, so I am guessing they were not asked back. I guess time will tell. I would also enjoy seeing little Sam Manning return too. He was so adorable.

    Elhu replied

    I am also keeping my fingers crossed that Trevor St. John can return as well, even if it is for short stints, since I know he is involved in other endeavors!!

    Mitchell1660 replied

    Matthew; yes. Destiny; no. Her acting was as bad as Jack’s (and HE’S coming back?!)

    I find that a bit rude. Shennell’s acting improved alot. She was better then some others who I will not name.

    Bree’s stint on Haven is wrapped up. She only had the pilot episode in Deception. I too hope she’ll come back.

    Kris replied

    Yes,I saw her on Deception last week but I dont think she is committed to anything right now so she can come back if they ask her and if theyre smart they WILL!!!!

    Mitchell1660 replied

    Bree wasn’t just in the pilot. She also does flashbacks in future episodes to explain her past, leading up to the character’s murder. But, I hope she comes back to OLTL; she was one of my favorites.

    Farah Fath doesn’t seem to want to come back, and it appears she wasn’t asked either. She indicated she was pretty much done with soaps when she left.

    It also appears that JPL wasn’t asked back. At least not yet.

    I hope she hasn’t “gone” HOLLYWOOD… it’s a shame….

    these actors certainly deserve more than?

    Farah Fath… SUCCESSFULLY ACTED IN TWO SOAPS…. days & oltl. that’s a rare feat.

    Hopefully, she hasn’t turned her back on the genre.

    She’s a likeable actress.

    They were asked – but both said no! That was on here last week or so.

    I’m just wondering how much airtime we’ll actually get. If the show’s are going to be only 30 minutes…with time out for commericals…what do we get? Fifteen minutes of show?

    Reply

    su0000 replied

    it will b much the same..

    I watch the soaps on the web, they run are 36 minutes with the commercials..

    The reason they are an hour on network TV is because of all the commercials ..

    Reply

    rebecca replied

    yes but I’m assuming there’ll be commercials on their site as wel. there are on Hulul…not just 30 minutes straight. so it will probably be much shorter…hope I’m wrong because that would be really minimal.

    boes replied

    I think that will all depend on what platform PP uses.

    The soaps that are rebroadcast on the web – all of the current ones which are accessed either directly or indirectly via the networks are dependent for their online viewing from the network broadcast, with the network formula for ads.

    The online only soaps do it differently and in fact aren’t always following a strict halfhour format. They usually have only a few – up to 4, usually – commercials, never more than 60 seconds long.

    I think we’ll be seeing more show than commercial in a big way.

    So happy, thrilled, the whole 9 yards:)))!!!! I hope AMC gets more sign ons. Would like to see Tad, Brooke, guessing David Canary is retired, so no Adam. Waiting to hear about the GH3. Very curious about that, would like to see John/Nat again, FINALLY.
    Still very great news, thanks Mr. Fairman:)

    Debra Bardani replied

    I’m hoping since David Canary lives in Ct. he’ll be back even if part-time. I hope MEK comes back. I do see this as an opportunity to bring back core families like the Cortlands with recasts. I would love Nina , Pete, Bobby and the clan come back to PV. Cliff can be re-cast since its been so long. He could come back to PVHospital. So many possibilities

    I’m really excited and happy to hear that PP has gotten so many of the original OLTL actors to come back and reprise their characters on the reboot! Sounds like it will really be recognizable as OLTL with the main nucleus of the old show coming back!
    The only thing missing is the John McBain character and Starr and Todd and/or Victor.
    I just hope something can be worked out withABC/GH to keep those characters on GH and maybe have them make occasional appearances on the PP OLTL show..
    Trevor St John could come back as Victor! Now that would be Great!!

    Love the additions to OLTL!!! So glad that it’s official that Viki, Tea, Bo, Nora, David, Blair are definitely back. And I’m glad to see Vimal back, even if it is recurring. I always thought he was so entertaining and funny. I’m glad to see Cutter back too, I hope he’s shirtless often like he was before lol.

    I’m glad to see Melissa back as Natalie, I always liked her. Can Brody come back for her since John will likely stay on GH? He was man candy too! And I actually liked Bree as Jessica, she could always come back sometime, never know.

    And I’m happy to see the girl returning as Danielle. She’s very pretty and a good actress. Jack I’m not so sure about. I hope the actor has gotten better in the year they have been off. He definitely has the looks, just has to bring the acting!

    And I hope the boy who played Sam comes back also, too bad he can’t stay little and cute like that but for so long! Hope to see Roxy, Tina, and Gabrielle, even if it’s recurring.

    At AMC I’m glad to see Jessie, Zach, and Opal coming back also. But AMC needs a lot more vets to come back!!! I’d love to see Tad and Dixie back!

    Oh I forgot to mention Trevor! Yes, he needs to be on OLTL also! If they won’t have Todd and John they need a male lead in the 40s and he’s perfect for it! And yes he is definitely beefcake and eye candy too!

I will be watching the online venture, but I really would like to see both shows make a return to television…..if for any reason, to just stick it to ABC…LOL

  41. AJ says:

    Without some kind of TV deal to share the costs, this has very little chance of getting off the ground. And without Susan Lucci, AMC might as well stay cancelled. It wasn’t exactly drawing in crowds when she was still on toward the end on ABC. This has “FLOP” written all over it.

    Reply

    boes replied

    Unless you’ve some inside knowledge we don’t, then I can’t imagine what you even mean. PP isn’t new at this, they’ve got other series up and running. And they’ve got the financial backing to put both shows back up and running. There aren’t that many numbskulls around with tons of money to lose, so it’s very safe to say that the people who are backing this believe it will work. Not only hope, but believe, with a sound basis. Unless you’re in the industry yourself, and based on what you wrote, you’re not, then you’re only blowing smoke because you like the smell.

    Nothing makes some people happier than raining on a parade without the facts to back it up.

    There isn’t always a cloud in every silver lining.

    The Core Family on AMC so far are the Castillos and Hubbards. Where are the Martins and the Kanes and the Chandlers? AMC is about Multi class and Multi generational families. When that changed in the late 90′s the show went down hill.

    OLTL is Rock Solid! Happy the Vatel’s are added. (the first hindu family in daytime)

  50. Daniel says:

    AMC needs several shots in the arm if the online venture is going to work: a matriarch busybody character like Phoebe Tyler Wallingford to add some fun (while giving more meaningful storyline to Opal), a character we the audience could relate to as our beloved grandmother like the Myrtle Fargate character, and of course Tad and Dixie to add heart and focus to the show. Above all, I hope some INTERESTING AND INTRIGUING STORIES are on the way. I’ve loved AMC since 1975 but for many of the recent years it was on the air, the storylines were dull and repetitive and characters thin and one-dimensional. I would appreciate stores that are relatable, real, heart-felt (a la Knots Landing) with a dash of mystery rather than so much emphasis on beauty and glamour.

    I am *so* happy for OLTL as it appears it has the ingredients to be interesting and successful. Hooray!

    Reply

    Johnny replied

    Your points are very well made ~ ALL MY CHILDREN got a little repetitive towards the end with too much storyline around the Ryan and Kendall and Greenlee trio -
    and no disrespect intended but they need stronger actors and not just pretty faces to keep the action moving along. I am not really sad that the actor who is known for portraying Ryan may not return for the online presentation. I hope the writing is interesting and I hope they do some respectable recasting of important roles.

    I do hope they can get Erin Torpey (original Jessica)for the role . I really have missed her over the years. I like Bree but am excited for her new role on NBC.

    Wow! Great progress….especially with One Life to Live. I would have rather seen Thorsten Kaye on OLTL and them bring back Marty, but I am just thrilled with OLTL’s key players so far!

    I am very happy to hear that OLTL and AMC are coming
    to Internet. I do wish to see Rex and Gigi and Roxy. They
    added a whole different look to the goings on of
    LandView. I hope the decisions not to have them come
    on are only temporary . So glad the others are going to be
    there. Especially Dorian. I can see a lot of very interesting
    stories coming. I do think we need the humor that Rex and
    Roxy can bring. Miss them all so much. Now we just need
    Victor!

    I don’t see that they have a producer on board who has any background in putting a soap on the web. Maybe they should bring in someone like Emmy winning (for the web soap Venice the series) Crystal Chappell to show them how it’s done.

    OLTL cast looks promising! AMC needs help NOW. Come on former Pine Valley residents, we need you for this to work.

    Not to sound mean, but unless Andrew Trischitta has been taking acting lessons since the show ended its network run, they could recast the role.

    I am so excited. Life hasn’t been the same with AMC and OLTL. I love Thorsten Kaye and I’m so happy he is on board and I’m hoping the tthe actress who played Kendal will also be back, along with some more long time characters. OLTL already has many of our favorites signed on including Florencia Lozano..we all love Tea Delgado.

    I heard that they, are going to do more crossovers with the online versions. Of OLTL and AMC , with GH. Anyways: What AMC needs to, bring on Greenlee, Bianca, Kendall, Marissa. They can have a love, triangle with Griffin and Kendall and Greenlee. But in the end we all, know that Kendall TRUELY belongs with Zack. And for OLTL: they just need bring on, Ted King(Tomas) for Blair, and with the crossover with GH. They are talking about, Blair and Todd reuniting. They can and need to age, the teens into adults. Such as Danielle and jack.

    I love seeing some of my favorite characters back on OLTL, but we also need Kristen Alderson, Brandon Buddy, Brittany Underwood & Jason Tam! We need the fab 4!

    If you remember on the last AMC show Erica was going to go to California to do a movie of her life and Jackson was not happy. Erica wanted to postpone their wedding again. They could keep Jack and pair him with Crystal.

    We need Bo Woods and of course Christopher St John, and the real Todd Manning. What would the show be without them!!! And, what about Jon?

    For AMC, get Crystal, Jack and Erica on board and you can have a pretty decent show. Life in Pine Valley will not be the same without Jack and Erica.

    I can’t wait for my favorite shows to come back. They gotta get Michael Knight tho! I’ve loved him since his “My Date with an Angel” days. Pine Valley wouldn’t be right without “Tad the Cad” Martin!!<3<3
