"ALL MY CHILDREN" CASTING GETS FAST AND FURIOUS: A new JR Chandler and the return of Eden Riegel as Bianca Montgomery head the latest list of signings for the online debut of "All My Children." Ryan Bittle, who appeared in several episodes of "AMC" in 2010 as Logan, is taking over the role previously played by Jacob Young. Emmy Award winner Eden Riegel will reprise her former role as a guest star for a multi-episode arc. This time, Bianca will have a teenage daughter to contend with. Former child model and kids' TV actress, 18-year-old Denyse Tontz, has been cast as Miranda Montgomery.
Julie Berman has ended her tenure as Lulu on "General Hospital." The announcement of her replacement is imminent. In November, Berman decided not to renew her contract, but agreed to stay on through February.
Rick Springfield, another "GH" viewer favorite whose most recent appearance on the series was last year, reprises his role as Noah Drake starting in April. A welcome surprise is that Springfield's real-life son, Liam Springthorpe (Rick's real surname), will debut on "GH" as an undercover police officer.
