(SoapOperaNetwork.com) – “All My Children” keeps things busy during the last two weeks of 2010.

Brittany Allen last airs as Marissa Tasker on Tuesday, December 21. The “All My Children” role originated by Allen in April 2009 has been recast. Allen is reportedly dating Finn Wittrock who exits the role of “AMC’s” Damon Miller early next year. Miller and “AMC” agreed to part ways earlier this month, coinciding with the actor completing one year of his contract.

Sarah Glendening takes over the role of David Hayward (Vincent Irizarry) and Krystal Carey’s (Bobbie Eakes) daughter on Monday, December 27. Prior to landing this role, Glendening was best known for her work as Lucy Montgomery on the CBS soap opera “As the World Turns.”

Nearly a week after rumblings about a new opening first hit the internet, “AMC” Executive Producer Julie Hanan Carruthers confirmed the news to the TV Guide website and gave them the exclusive first look at their new opening. On Wednesday, December 22, “AMC” will debut its brand new opening for the first time on network television. Gone is the emphasis on the album and photographs and in its place is a scenic tour of Pine Valley and its citizens.

Daniel Cosgrove reclaims the role of Scott Chandler on Monday, December 27. The Emmy nominated actor who has spent the better part of the last decade on CBS soap operas started his daytime career on “AMC” in this role of Scott. Cosgrove previously played the role from from 1996 to 1998. Last we saw Stuart Chandler’s son he was being carted off to prison in the form of actor Adam Mayfield on October 15.

Michael McCarthy debuts as Father Clarence on Monday, December 27. Since his debut in 2003, the angel has brought about almost as much death and horror – just ask little Kathy Martin – as enlightenment and good and will air in at least two episodes this holiday season. Among the Father’s flock this year are one of his regulars Kendall Hart Slater (Alicia Minshew) and the widow’s mother Erica Kane (Susan Lucci). Malachy McCourt, who originated the role, couldn’t return to the role this year due to a personal emergency.

As previously reported, “AMC” will not air new episodes of the soap on Thursday, December 23, Friday, December 24, Thursday, December 30 and Friday, December 31. Instead, look for recent episodes surrounding David Hayward’s return from the dead and latest near death experience to air on those days. These are scheduled annual pre-emptions, fans will not be missing any new episodes of “AMC” on these days.

“All My Children” airs Weekdays on ABC. Anytime on ABC.com.

Frankie Faison is back as Richard Evans on Monday, December 27, when Darren (J.J. Singleton) arranges a surprise meeting between he and Destiny (Shenell Edmonds). 

Could viewers soon be seeing more of Clint’s right hand man Vimal (Nick Choksi) in the new year?  It appears that way, since Shenaz Treasuryvala has been cast in the recurring role of his wife Rama.  The Indian actress wrote on her Facebook page that Friday, December 10 was “My first day of shoot on the soap for ABC. I had 65 pages of lines, the indian school-book mugging came handy, finally! These guys go fast, one take only, they pack it all in. Was so surreal, there I was, tiny lil bandra girl amongst all these gorgeous blonde barbie and ken people fighting about genetic labs, manipulative girlfriends and cheating husbands. Quite hilarious actually. But fun! So much fun.” Her scenes are expected to begin airing sometime in January.

Author Peter Straub has tweeted some more information concerning his upcoming return to “OLTL” as John McBain’s (Michael Easton) voice of reason Pete Braust, writing that “At last, I believe I’m beginning to make sense of my lines. This is pretty interesting. Pete Braust carries the scenes! Yes, I am a shameless fan and lover of everything that happens in Llanview, PA. I won’t know the air date for a while, but when I do, I’ll tweet it.”

Patrick Allen Cole will be returning as Jeff, the manager at Rodi’s, in the near future. 

Robert King shot scenes as another dayplayer character in mid-November. 

And “One Life to Live” released casting calls recently for the roles of “Kris,” “Jillian,” “Beth,” and “Brad.”  SON will have more information on each of these as it becomes available.
