Actor updates for February 6 – 12.

There was a lot of activity regarding “AMC’s” online migration last week, including a few more popular actors signing on. In addition, one Pine Valley alum is in talks to star in a comedy western, another is preparing for a Showtime premiere and yet one more launched a website with the soap fans in mind.

AMC online episode details:
Soaps in Depth reports that when “All My Children” picks up this spring, five years will have passed since JR shot a gun into a crowd at the Chandler mansion. The revived series will begin with JR waking up from a coma. It will also reportedly focus on a group of high schoolers.

In addition, Vincent Irizarry (David) told Soap Opera Digest shooting will take place in five-week intervals. Which means, “AMC” will shoot for five weeks and then “OLTL” will shoot for five. It also means Irizarry won’t be moving to Connecticut, so he can focus on projects in L.A. when he’s on his five week break from “AMC.”

AMC casting notices:

Per Soap Opera Digest, “AMC” is looking to fill several roles as they begin production. The soap is looking for three Caucasian young adults: Grace, a blonde, sexy twenty something; Hunter, a confident bad boy teenager; and Heather, a popular 18-year-old. A casting notice has also gone out for Vlad, an Eastern European thirty something who goes after what he wants and Yuri, a businessman in his 30s or 40s.
