For more than 12 years Sean Kanan has been portraying the role of the flawed Deacon Sharpe on CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" and "The Young and the Restless," but for fans of "General Hospital" he is best known for his portrayal of AJ Quartermaine. Last seen in 1997 as AJ went toe-to-toe with Carly Roberts (now Carly Jacks) as played by Sarah Brown, fans were shocked to find the role recast with actor Billy Warlock. According to published reports, Kanan had been fired by then executive producer Wendy Riche because of issues relating to alcohol use. In 2005, Warlock's AJ was killed off by a psychotic psychiatrist, but after a 15 year absence from the canvas does Kanan's return mean the show has decided to undo AJ's death?

TV Guide's Michael Logan pulls off another exclusive! In an interview with Steve Burton, the actor reveals that he has in fact decided to leave ABC's "General Hospital" after two decades at the drama series. First joining the cast in 1991, Burton had portrayed the role of Jason Quartermaine turned Morgan. He left the series in 2000, but returned in 2002, and has remained at the show ever since. He's also appeared on the “GH” spinoff, “General Hospital: Night Shift,” during the SOAPnet original series’ first season.
After her character was shamed out of Salem last year prior to the major "Days of our Lives" reboot, Nadia Bjorlin is returning to the NBC Daytime drama series in the coming months as a "stronger and more confident Chloe [Lane] who can really stand up for herself and not be bullied," so says the actress in an interview with TV Guide Magazine's Michael Logan.
In an exclusive interview with ​TV Guide​'s Michael Logan, Bradley Bell, Executive Producer and Head Writer of "The Bold and the Beautiful," has revealed that he plans on recasting the role of Ridge Forrester now that Ronn Moss is departing the series after filming his final scenes later today.
According to TV Guide's Michael Logan, CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" is bringing Sean Kanan back into the fold as the soap plans to reintegrate Deacon Sharpe onto the canvas beginning next month. Since 2009, the character had been living it up on network sibling "The Young and the Restless" as part of a connection he built with Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) in Genoa City.
In an interview posted earlier today by TV Guide's Michael Logan, it looked like Co-Executive Producer Greg Meng was alluding to the possible ouster of actress Sarah Brown when he stated "we also brought in the wonderful Sarah Brown [Madison James] and threw her into a lot of material very quickly. Maybe too much too quickly." Sadly, it looks like he was indeed commenting on Brown's character on the show in past tense.

On June 6, 2011, ABC finally announced (after months of rumors) that it had signed a deal with former "CBS Evening News" anchor Katie Couric to host a new daily syndicated talk show, and that said show would replace veteran soap opera "General Hospital" in the 3:00 PM ET/2:00 PM PT/CT timeslot. While initially the decision brought fear to soap opera fans, who only two months prior learned that ABC Daytime's two other veteran soaps ("All My Children" and "One Life to Live") would be replaced by two new food and lifestyle centered talk shows ("The Chew" and "The Revolution"). Now nearly a year since the announcement, it looks like Katie Couric may just be the lifesaver "General Hospital" desperately needs.
As "One Life to Live" winds down production on its television run, the show has landed the mother of all returns -- literally. Agnes Nixon, who created "OLTL" and sister soap "All My Children," will make an appearance on the show as, what else, a soap opera scribe.

With "One Life to Live" nearing the end of its run on ABC Daytime, the list of returning former cast members is increasing. And, while the list is impressive, it is lacking one important ingredient for long-time fans of the soap.
As Soap Opera Network reported late last week, Susan Lucci has added a scathing new chapter to "All My Life" scheduled to be included in the paperback release of her memoir on September 13. In the new epilogue, the actress who is known for being too well-mannered uncharacteristically blasts ABC Daytime Chief Brian Frons for what she feels is his mismanagement of ABC Daytime and his general arrogance. Following a weekend of book leaks, ABC released what could only be construed as a biting statement about Lucci's book addition and conduct. On Tuesday - coincidentally or not - after getting information from an unnamed source, a Deadline.com article held back few jabs after revealing the actress turned down the offer to continue with "All My Children" online.
Jacob Young is returning to the soap that started his daytime career back in 1997. This fall the Daytime Emmy Award winner will reprise the role of Eric Forrester (John McCook) and Brooke Logan's (Katherine Kelly Lang) son, Rick Forrester, on the CBS daytime drama "The Bold and the Beautiful."
