(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Various guest stars offer a helping hand to some of Pine Valley’s most beleaguered.
Starting on April 14, real-life doctor Gail Saltz begins playing the role of Ryan’s psychoanalyst. The amnesiac looks to be in good hands as he struggles to deal with the quandaries of his memory blockage. In the real world, Dr. Gail Saltz M.D. is a renowned practicing psychiatrist, columnist, bestselling author, and television commentator. NBC Nightly News achor Tom Brokaw once referred to Saltz as “a voice of wisdom and insight in a world of confusion and contradictions.”
On the Friday, April 25 edition of “AMC,” a group of Erica, Erica Kane’s biggest fans gather outside of the fashionista’s prison to rally for her freedom. Amongst that groups of fans will be real-life R&B boy band “B5.” The band made up of five brothers, who happen to be fans of the daytime drama, will perform their song “Erica Cain,” – Susan Lucci’s alter ego makes an appearance in the video to the track – from their album Don’t Talk, Just Listen at the “Free Erica Kane!” rally.
Though a nice thought, the rally is an unsuccessful tactic – so Opal brings in the big guns: the richest person on the planet earth. Conglomerate Warren Buffet, the head of Berkshire Hathaway Inc., will make his third “AMC” appearance in May. He will play himself, of course. Opal hopes her friend, who is worth no less than $62 billion, can use his influence to get her best gal pal off the hook for her insider trading conviction. Buffet, an “AMC” fan and a close friend of “AMC” creator Agnes Nixon, first appeared on the soap in 1991 with then-ABC chairman Thomas S. Murphy.
