Daytime legend Susan Lucci, who portrayed Erica Kane on all 41 years of “All My Children,” will be appearing on the Monday, February 25 edition of ABC’s “The View.” The actress is expected to sit down with the ladies to discuss her new Lifetime series “Devious Maids,” and the second season of her Investigation Discovery series “Deadly Affairs.”
The last time People Magazine offerred a collector’s edition of a soap opera was in September 2011, when the mag celebrated the life and history of the then canceled “All My Children.” This time the magazine is celebrating the continued life and history of “General Hospital” with a special 50th Anniversary collector’s edition that finds Luke and Laura Spencer (Anthony Geary and Genie Francis), Maxie Jones (Kirsten Storms), Sonny Corinthos and Brenda Barrett (Maurice Benard and Vanessa Marcil), Duke Lavery and Anna Devane (Ian Buchanan and Finola Highes), and Jagger Cates (Antonio Sabato Jr.) gracing the cover.
“General Hospital’s” Jon Lindstrom (Dr. Kevin Collins) directed and co-produced “How We Got Away With It,” a gripping, taut and explosive tale of a young man and his friend’s violent reaction to an unexpected tragedy during their annual all-weekend summer reunion. “Got Away With It” is a troubling and sometimes difficult piece about abuse, secrets, denial and revenge.
Screenings of the film will take place during the Macon Film Festival in Macon, GA beginning today, February 15, starting at 4:15 PM at the 567 Center for Renewal, which is located at 533 Cherry St. Macon, GA 31201. A Q&A will follow the screening. Another screening will take place on Saturday, February 16 at 6:00 PM at the Douglass Theater located at 355 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., Macon, GA 31201.

From “Cold Spring” to “Prosecuting Casey Anthony,” former soap stars Marisa Ramirez (“General Hospital”), Sam Page (“All My Children”), Patrick Muldoon (“Days of our Lives,” “Melrose Place”), Aiden Turner (“All My Children”), Elizabeth Rohm (“One Life to Live”), Sean Patrick Flannery (“The Young and the Restless”) and Scott Evans (“One Life to Live”) will grace the Lifetime movie screens this month as the group of actors help tell the networks tradition of stories involving stalkings, affairs and murder.
In yet another holiday film from Lifetime starring former soap stars, actors Claire Coffee (ex-Nadine Crowell, “General Hospital”) and Ryan McPartlin (ex-Hank Bennett, “Passions”) are headlining “Holly’s Holiday.” In the film, Coffee portrays Holly Maddux, a New York advertising executive who can’t help notice the window display she passes by on her way to work every day, the one with the perfect, hunky mannequin. When Holly slips one day on the ice in front of the store and hits her head, she wakes up to find a perfect gentleman by her side, helping her up. That gentleman is portrayed by McPartlin in the role of Bo. As Holly and Bo hit it off almost perfectly, Holly soon realizes that the pressure to be perfect all the time is not all that it’s cracked up to be as she has to make a choice between the perfect life she’s always dreamed of… and the real love that’s been waiting for her all along. The fim also stars Jeff Ward (“Body of Proof”) in the role of Milo Ames.

Larry Hagman, best known for such iconic roles as Major Tony Nelson on “I Dream of Jeannie” and J.R. Ewing on “Dallas,” has died, reports The Dallas Morning News. The actor, 81, died at 4:20 PM local time earlier today.
Reportedly, members of Hagman’s family stated the cause of death as complications from his recent battle with cancer.
A native of Texas himself, Hagman portrayed the legendary Ewing character from 1978 to 1991 on CBS and again this past summer after TNT rebooted the series for a new generation. Hagman returned along side original co-stars Patrick Duffy and Linda Gray. The second season of the TNT incarnation, which Hagman had been filming, is set to premiere in January.
“Larry was back in his beloved Dallas, re-enacting the iconic role he loved most,” said the actors family in a statement. “Larry’s family and close friends had joined him in Dallas for the Thanksgiving holiday. When he passed, he was surrounded by loved ones. It was a peaceful passing, just as he had wished for. The family requests privacy at this time.”
