(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Who's coming (back) to Pine Valley next month?
Erica Kane and Jackson Montgomery return to "All My Children" on Wednesday, October 6, as previously reported by Soap Opera Network. Susan Lucci and Walt Willey have been off-screen since July 14. Look for Jackson to be there for his daughter Greenlee (Rebecca Budig), who finds herself as the prime suspect in the murder of her husband, Dr. David Hayward (Vincent Irizarry). Erica, meanwhile, will join Caleb (Michael Nouri) in the battle for Chandler/Cortlandt.
Rick Pasqualone appears on two upcoming episodes on "AMC." His character, Charles Michaelson, will briefly be Greenlee's lawyer of choice. The voice actor who started his career as a day player on "AMC" has also appeared on "Desperate Housewives," "NCIS" and "Without a Trace." Pasqualone appears on "AMC" on Thursday, September 30 and Wednesday, October 6.
"Guiding Light" alum Jeff Phillips joins the cast of the ABC soap on Wednesday, October 13 as Nick Pearson. Despite ex-wife Greenlee taking over Ryan's (Cameron Mathison) current status as the prime suspect in David's murder, Ryan will continue to investigate his part in David's murder. Philips, best known for his role as the original Hart Jessup on "GL," is slated to air in at least six episodes.
Thorsten Kaye returns to "AMC" as Zach Slater on Friday, October 22 for what a show representative calls a length of time to be determined. In August, Co-Head Writers David Kreizman and Donna Swajeski initially reported that the actor "is slated to return for a much longer period of time in October/November," referring to the Kaye's brief four episode return stint in August. Swajeski and Kreizman report that fans can expect a "very romantic" arc for the beleaguered and popular pairing of Zach and Kendall (Alicia Minshew).
"All My Children" airs Weekdays on ABC. Anytime on ABC.com.
