A huge casting decision will impact fans of two soaps. The Bold and the Beautiful has hired Emmy-nominated daytime vet Thorsten Kaye as its new Ridge Forrester. Kaye had been appearing as Zach Slater on All My Children. For 25 years, the role of Ridge had been played by B&B original cast member Ronn Moss.
Prospect Park has confirmed that All My Children and One Life to Live will be returning to the airwaves later this year. Production of both soaps will begin in February and they will be broadcast on an newly developed Internet-based entertainment channel.

All My Children's confirmed cast list continues to grow. It now includes twelve stars reprising their roles, another vet in a new role, five newcomers taking on existing characters, and two newly created roles.
Susan Lucci has not yet signed on for All My Children's relaunch, but the Emmy-winning actress expressed her desire to reach a deal that will allow her to step back into Erica Kane's shoes. Lucci debuted as the iconic Erica in 1970.

A purportedly imminent announcement regarding All My Children's future has yet to be made, but an Emmy-winning AMC star's comments on Twitter have fans wondering if a cancellation announcement is now merely a formality.
Ryan Bittle has been cast as JR Chandler in All My Children's Internet revival. Bittle previously appeared as Logan on AMC in 2010. JR was last portrayed by Jacob Young.
Alicia Minshew is returning to All My Children. The Emmy-nominated actress is scheduled for a cameo appearance, but a longer return is not out of the realm of possibility. Minshew debuted on AMC in January 2002.
