Duhmael is just one of the many stars heading back to Pine Valley to pay respects to their former ABC soap home.
'All My Children' leaves ABC on Fri., Sept. 23. It will continue on a new, unnamed online network at an unspecified later date. Contract negotiations may delay 'AMC's' move online until 2012.
Duhamel's character, Leo du Pres, was last seen trying to save Rebecca Budig's character, Greenlee, during a waterfall accident.
In the clip below, it looks like Leo has seen better days, but when he sets his sights on Greenlee, well, see for yourself.
'All My Children' is set to move online thanks to a new deal between ABC and Prospect Park. 'One Life to Live' will join the show after it leaves ABC in January 2012. However, contract negotiations may delay 'AMC's' move online.
Duhamel left the series in 2003 after his character allegedly died. But, death isn't always permanent on soaps. Look for Duhamel's scenes to air Thurs., Aug. 4.
Check out the gallery below for a preview of what's in store when Duhmael returns to the series. Does Rebecca Budig's Greenlee look very happy?
According to 'Entertainment Weekly,' Duhamel will appear in an episode in August, and there's a chance that he could even appear in a second episode before the veteran soap bows out in September.
Leo died (or did he?) back in 2003 trying to save Greenlee (Rebecca Budig) in a waterfall accident. However, death -- as we all know -- is no impediment to soap opera comebacks and as Leo's body was never found, we'll now get to find out what he's been up to all these years.
During an interview with Kelly Ripa and Short, who was filling in for Regis Philbin, Duhamel shaped his hair into a point using gel and hairspray, hiked up his pants, and performed Grimley's trademark spastic dance.
Watch the video after the jump.
If only it were permanent. (Commence booing and hissing at your leisure.)
Turns out that Meredith Grey's temporary departure from Grey's Anatomy this coming sixth season (Ellen Pompeo is going out on maternity leave) won't be the only character taking leave from the halls of Seattle Grace. Katherine Heigl's chock-full-o'-cancer Izzie Stevens will be going MIA for a few episodes as well.
If you're like me, the how and why doesn't really matter because this is just delightful news (my dislike for Heigl and her outbursts is no secret), but the details and spoilers are after the jump if you really want to know.
It just has a ring to it, don't you think? I doubt that we'll see Rainn bulking up Stallone-style to save the world with a knife and his guile, but he did just land a role in Michael Bay's Transformers 2. It doesn't really get more action movie than that. Wilson will play a college professor to Shia LaBeouf's Sam. It will be interesting to see how much, if any, Schrute makes it into the character.
But wait, there's more. Fans of the gone but not forgotten Las Vegas will be happy to learn that Josh Duhamel will be returning for the sequel. And fans of ridiculously hot girls will be happy to know that FHM's Sexiest Woman In The World, Megan Fox, is also returning. A warning, that FHM link is safe for my workplace, but might not be for yours. If you can't wait for Bay to finish all of those CGI sequences to get your Rainn fix, you can also catch him this summer in The Rocker as a failed drummer who gets a second chance at fame. That one also features Teddy Geiger (Love Monkey), and the trailer is after the jump.
1. Spin-Off Opp. A TV movie would be a great opportunity to spin Las Vegas into a new series for Josh Duhamel and James Caan. I've sorely missed watching Caan rough up the bad guys this season, and he and Duhamel would make a great P.I. duo, collaring modern-day Vegas criminals a la Crime Story's Lt. Torello. Are you listening, Michael Mann? Pretty please, with wing-tip shoes on top?
Danny couldn't be more right. Over the years, Las Vegas switched timeslots so many times that I've lost counts. It also went through as many casino owners as timeslots! No matter, the show was an entertaining one. It's the type of show I enjoyed watching on Friday nights (or in most cases Saturday afternoon thanks to my old VCR) because of its lightness. I didn't have to think much while watching the gang try to catch the bad guys, Delinda put her foot in her mouth and Sam try to please her whales so they would lose big bucks on the tables.
A few days after a cliffhanger season finale, NBC decided that fans would have to do without the Montecito crew from now on; Las Vegas was canceled.
That's the TV show, not the city.
Two writers are accusing Dreamworks of stealing ideas, plots, and scenes for the NBC show. The two writers, one a graduate of NYU and the other a writer in Hollywood, are saying that Dreamworks actually read their screenplay Fringe Players seven years ago. The screenplay was optioned by Fox after being read by Dreamworks.
A while back we told you about news that Las Vegas producers had approached former Magnum, P.I. star Tom Selleck about joining the series, and now NBC has announced that it's a done deal. Selleck will join the show this fall and be the new billionaire owner of the Montecito with a mysterious past (of course).
But James Caan fans take note: he will appear in the first episode of the new season to wrap up his storyline, and resolve those cliffhangers from the final episode this season. Along with Caan, Nikki Cox is also leaving the show.
Hmmm...mysterious billionaire? They should give Selleck's character the name Robin Masters. That would be funny.

Nine out of 15 male actors on People magazine's list of Sexiest Men are on television. The one I'm most excited about seeing on the list is John Krasinski, of The Office. He has that sweet guy thing going on, whereas some of the finalists are just smoldering sexpots (see: Jake Gyllenhaal).
Also in the Top 15 Sexiest: Taye Diggs (Day Break), Patrick Dempsey (Grey's Anatomy), Omar Epps (House), Josh Duhamel (Las Vegas), Enrique Murciano (Without a Trace), Rodrigo Santoro (Lost), Eric Mabius (Ugly Betty) and John Cho (The Singles Table- NBC midseason).
Who's missing from this list?
I still don't understand how they're going to do a live-action version of cars and airplanes turning into robots.
