Actor updates for May 1 – 7.

Online TV is mainstream, and the reason why the return of "AMC" is all the talk in entertainment news this past week. In addition to that chatter, we have Primetime news, Tweets, and more.

Jordi Vilasuso celebrates a Perfect Day.
Jordi Vilasuso (Griffin Castillo) recently shared with us information on the Paos Revolution and its first project, "Perfect Day."

Jordi explains:

"We started Paos Revolution because of our belief in the power and influence of the fan and I'm so excited about our first project, 'Perfect Day!' I believe this show is what every person who has the privilege of influence can do to not only give back to their fans but also causes that deserve to have their stories told. Our first show will give me the opportunity to spend a day with the mom of an autistic child and shine a light on Jacob's Ladder, an incredible institution that serves to help special needs children through therapy and science. I hope you will join me in support in what I believe will be an inspirational journey!"

AMC stats and facts.
Since the launch, "All My Children" proved successful on internet TV. It knocked "Mad Men" out of the #1 position and took over as #1 most popular episodes on Hulu. Days two through four tapered off a bit but it is indicated that online soap viewers are likely to binge view on the weekends.

More All My Children.
Watch the "AMC" recap episode "More All My Children" which aired on Friday, May 3. Producer Ginger Smith tells us what to expect soon, but keeps a lot of secrets so as not to steal away the element of surprise.

AMC History
Over 20 years ago, Jesse and Angie Hubbard kidnapped their son, Frank, from his adoptive family. Frank was the victim of an adoption arranged for by Angie's father when Angie and Jesse were estranged. When the two had fallen back together, they resorted to kidnapping to get their son back. Years later in 2008, Frank was kidnapped again by Rob Gardner. Gardner got out of a shoot-out by claiming the man he shot was the guilty one. He was around long enough to crash the Hubbard's wedding and nearly kidnap Angie.
