Rebecca Budig and Josh Duhamel
Sadly, All My Children's Leo du Pres was not one of the lucky, formerly-late Pine Valley citizens resurrected by David Heyward in recent weeks. Instead, Josh Duhamel returned as Leo for a single episode this month, appearing to Greenlee in an all-too-brief dream in which she imagined he'd been saved by David and hidden away all these years.
At least there was smooching before she woke up though, right? Still, it's not exactly what Rebecca Budig had in mind. Last week on location at the Descanso Gardens, Budig, who joined the soap as Greenlee in 1999, told TVGuide.com that she had envisioned a different "ever after" for her character
All My Children creator Agnes Nixon will reprise her role as Agnes Eckhart on the show, ABC announced Monday.
Nixon is just the latest in a long line of past cast members dropping by the show once more before it leaves ABC in September. Returning alumni include...
Is Susan Lucci moving from Pine Valley to Wisteria Lane?
The All My Children alum says she's been talking to Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry about joining the prime-time soap.
"There's been a lot of talking, but we'll see," she told Access Hollywood at the Daytime Emmys. "It's a show I like very much, of course. The cast is amazing. Marc Cherry is amazing."

Carol Burnett will return to All My Children this September to reprise her role as Verla Grubbs, ABC announced Friday.
Burnett first appeared as Verla, the long-lost daughter of Langley Wallingford (Louis Edmonds), in 1983. She returned to Pine Valley 12 years later for the 25th anniversary ...
Eva La Rue
Eva La Rue has joined the growing list of All My Children alumni returning to the ABC soap before it goes off the air in September.
Earlier this week, the show announced that it had also snagged star Josh Duhamel (Las Vegas, Transformers). He'll be back for at least one episode in August, reprising the role of Leo du Pres, who died in 2003. Thorsten Kaye (Zach Slater) and Cady McClain (Dixie Cooney Martin), both of whom play characters who are now deceased, will also return.
La Rue, who currently stars in CBS' CSI: Miami, will be back for several episodes beginning in July.
Nobody needs a Christmas miracle more than All My Children's Kendall Hart (Alicia Minshew). She's about to receive one — but it's not the one she's hoping for. On the soap's December 27 episode, the Pine Valley heroine, still in deep mourning over the plane-crash death of her husband Zach (Thorsten Kaye), has a visit from Father Clarence, the magical, mystical priest who always appears on the show at holiday time to help those in need. (The terrific Malachy McCourt who played the role for many years had to bow out this time. He's replaced by Michael McCarthy).
Michael Easton has no plans to give up his day job as One Life to Live crime-buster John McBain. But it must be tempting. The actor turned fantasy writer just released Soul Stealer: Last to Die (DMF Comics), the third and final chapter in his series of critically acclaimed graphic novels about an ancient Etruscan warrior searching for his lost love across three millenniums. Come October...
William deVry and Eden Riegel, All My Children
Yes, you read that right. Next month William deVry recurs on All My Children as Michael Cambias, the billionaire bad guy who sired Bianca's baby, Miranda, on the night he brutally raped her. But since the late, hated Mr. Cambias was found frozen on a meat hook in 2003, he won't be back in the flesh. Instead, Michael will guest-star in the nightmares of his brother Zach (Thorsten Kaye) on Jan. 27 and 31. Fitting, huh?
Although Eden Riegel
will also be seen in Pine Valley next month, she and deVry won't cross paths on screen. As previously reported, Riegel's holiday visit
begins airing today and concludes Jan. 10. Hence, an AMC
rep reassures TVGuide.com: "Michael Cambias does not interact with Bianca at any point." Phew!
