Although many had speculated that when a gunshot went off during the series finale of “” on ABC in September 2011, in a quasi “Dallas” redux  where instead of “Who Shot JR?” it was “Who Did JR Shoot?” it appears as though the character of JR Chandler is very much alive and not in jail?!

According to , “All My Children” is gearing up to recast the role of JR Chandler, last played by , who is currently starring on CBS’ “.” The site says that despite a recent casting breakdown utilizing the name “Logan” in a scene with a character named “Faith,” the role being cast is in actuality that of JR.

In the breakdown also obtained by Soap Opera Network, it appears as though “Logan” (aka: JR) is drinking again and has become very bitter against his father for what he has done. “Wells Vanderbilt” (aka: Adam Chandler) has given “Faith” power of attorney should anything happen to him, and not his own son. “My whole life, all I wanted was for him to look at me with something even bordering on love. But he couldn’t do that. I wasn’t family to him. I was a tool. A weapon to use against my mother and anyone else who got in his way,” says “Logan” to “Faith” about “Wells.”

Note: While this is a summarized breakdown of a role currently being cast, this does not in any way mean that a finalized script for the character(s) will utilize such details nor can any character traits described be expected to appear in the final on air/online version of the series.
