According to a show insider, All My Children execs may be contemplating a return to Pine Valley by Jake Martin.

Jake - born Joseph Martin, Jr. - is the youngest child of Joe and Ruth Martin. Most recently portrayed by J. Eddie Peck, Jake was last in Pine Valley in June 2003 to announce his engagement to fellow doctor Carolyn Finn.

Peck left All My Children in February 2003. The actor said that he was disappointed by the show's story telling. Peck had expressed a desire for the writers to focus more on family-driven stories for the Martin family. When it was determined that the show's storylines could not accommodate Peck's request, Peck was granted his request to have his contract terminated.

Peck returned in June of last year to wrap up some loose ends of his character's storyline.


It is unclear if All My Children execs would consider having Peck return to the show. However, an insider tells Soap Opera Central that the show would be leaning more towards a recast.


An AMC spokesperson did not respond to a request for comment on this article.
