Earlier today Paos Revolution (aka: Soap Revolution flipped) announced that actor Ray MacDonnell is scheduled to make a return visit to Pine Valley as Dr. Joe Martin. It was previously stated by Michael E. Knight (Tad Martin), in a recent interview with Soap Opera Digest, that MacDonnell would likely be appearing on the reboot of the soap. “I think the Martins are going to be well-represented with Cady and I hear Ray. I’m sorry if Ricky [Paull Goldin, ex-Jake] won’t be. I’m blessed, personally, that the Martins are going to be represented,” said Knight.
MacDonnell appearing on “AMC” adds to a number of familiar faces expected to make visit at some point down the road including David Canary (Adam/Stuart Chandler), who was already spotted on set recently, and Susan Lucci (Erica Kane). No word yet on whether Lee Meriwether (pictured with MacDonnell) will reprise her role on “AMC” as Ruth Martin. Both MacDonnell and Meriwether returned briefly to the soap before it ended its television run in 2011.
