Daytime Emmy Winner takes on Pine Valley as nuJR Chandler


Jacob Young is nu J.R. on AMCJacob Young is AMC's NuJR

All My Children has cast Jacob Young in the role of Adam Chandler Jr., Adam and Dixie's headstrong son who now affectionately goes by JR. The role was believed to have already been filled by model Justin Bruening, but AMC's casting department decided earlier this year that Bruening worked better as Jamie Martin and continued the search for another performer to play Adam Jr.

Young has appeared on both CBS's The Bold and the Beautiful as well as ABC's General Hospital. His work on both of those programs earned him Daytime Emmy nominations. In 1999 Young earned his first nomination in the Outstanding Younger Actor category for his portrayal of Rick Forrester on B&B. Three years later, Young earned an Emmy victory for his work as GH's Lucky Spencer.
 
Young left General Hospital in February 2003 with the intent of focusing on other projects, including his budding musical career. Young's self-titled debut album hit stores in September 2001. He also recently completed work on the movie The Girl Next Door.

In 1999 when Young was nominated for his first Daytime Emmy for the role of Rick Forrester on the Bold and the Beautiful, Soapdom had the opportunity to sit down with him and find out how he ticks.  Check out the "Blast from the Past" interview.

Taking on a recast is something that is not new for Young - he took over the role of GH's Lucky from multiple Emmy winner Jonathan Jackson (see that story here) -- so he should fit in well as AMC's Adam Chandler, Jr.
 
Young premieres on All My Chidren on Thursday, Oct. 2, 2003.

Past Blast

Soapers ~ a movement, a philosophy, a new book

When ABC announced the cancellation of long time fan favorite soap operas All My Children and One Life to Live in the spring of 2011, all havoc broke loose. Passionate fans took to the internet, boycotted ABC's advertisers, called for the firing of then ABC Daytime head, Brian Frons (who spearheaded the cancellations), picketed the studio, did anything and everything they possibly could to let the network know just how unhappy they were with the network's decision to dump their continuing stories for the more cost efficient lifestyle and talk shows that were to replace the soaps.

One such loyal fan, Flo DiBona, has chronicled the events of this tumultuous time in her new book, Soapers.
