Michael E. Knight
They didn't call him Tad The Cad for nothing! Soap superstar Michael E. Knight's post-Pine Valley career is positively bulging with new opportunities. The All My Children alum will be appearing in John Marans' play The Cost of the Erection at the Blank Theatre Company's Main Stage in Los Angeles beginning this Feb. 4.
Knight will star opposite DeVanity's Robin Riker in the theatrical production about a wealthy woman named Susu Ziegler (Riker) who "has purchased an exclusive Manhattan raw space apartment overlooking the Hudson. She hopes to have her architect husband design this tricky space, but with their marriage virtually on the rocks, she forces him to compete against a younger, hotshot architect. This sexy, funny tale is told in a heightened theatrical style, compressing and playing with time and space and ultimately examines what makes marriages work. Or not work."

Even athletes are feeling the loss of soaps. NBA great Charles Barkley stopped by Conan last night and revealed how upset he is that All My Children was cancelled. Barkley told O'Brien about his love for Erica Kane (Susan Lucci), Tad "The Cad" Martin (Michael E. Knight) and how dedicated he was to watching the sudser in college.

Jacob Young may have spilled a little bit too much tea, while making an appearance at the first night of the Tribute To Pine Valley, on Oct. 25. Young, along with his All My Children co-stars Cameron Mathison (Ryan), Darrnell Williams (Jesse), Michael E. Knight (Tad), Vincent Irizarry (David) and Walt Willey (Jackson) kicked off the event at Town Hall in New York . According to Soap Opera Digest, Young informed the fans his contract at The Bold and the Beautiful is a short one, and he's cool with returning to Pine Valley, once it starts up at Prospect Park. Young said:
Let's see what these Prospect Park guys can bring to the table.
My old journalism professor always said to wait 24 hours before you write about something you feel passionate about. Well, forget that. In 1996 when he was teaching me those lessons, the Internet was just a place where you looked up pictures of your fave celebs naked, and/or chatted on ICQ. Today is a new day and I want to share my thoughts on All My Children's breathtaking finale while I'm still reeling from the excitement of it all.
In a word, I thought the finale was wonderful, simply wonderful. After decades of seeing soap operas limp to the finish line in their final weeks, All My Children gave us some of the best episodes we've seen in years during the past month. While, I wasn't a big fan of the umbrella story that got us here (David Hayward bringing back several characters from the dead), boy-oh-boy did those beloved characters shine, as this soap headed for the cliff, where executive producer Julie Hanan Caruthers (Someone I don't praise often!), Agnes Nixon and Lorraine Broderick expertly perched it, in hopes that fans will follow the soap online when Prospect Park hopefully debuts it this January.

Will the denizens of Pine Valley live happily ever after once All My Children leaves ABC's airwaves? Susan Lucci, Michael E. Knight and showrunner Julie Hanan Carruthers, spoke with TV Guide.com and revealed what fans have to look forward to on Sept. 23
Tell us what you can about how it all ends.
Carruthers: What you get — and this was our No. 1 priority — is a sense of family. So, all of the families, whether they're at the height of dysfunction or they're most connected, all the families come together in one way or another. Our last week is a true tribute to the families that make up the canvas of Pine Valley. Trust me, you will need a Kleenex every day of the final week. READ MORE
