Classic Supercouple Returning to All My Children

One of daytime's most popular supercouples from the 1980s -- which in my opinion is the golden era of the Supercouple! -- is returning to All My Children. Darnell Williams and Debbi Morgan have signed contracts (not just recurring!) to return to the soap in January. The duo played the uber-popular Jesse and Angie Hubbard two decades ago. Sadly, Jesse was killed off. So does this mean he's returning as a ghost? It could be he's coming back in the form of his lookalike, Jacob, who surfaced on Loving/The City when Morgan's character relocated to that soap after Jesse died. I'll take him in either form, although I'm partial to him returning as his original character, Jesse.

Williams most recently played a bad guy, Griggs, on Guiding Light, and Morgan has a recurring role as an attorney on The Bold and the Beautiful, as well as a judge on the reality series I Wanna Be a Soap Star. She was also absolutely fantastic in the indie film Eve's Bayou in the 1990s and generated Oscar talk, but alas wasn't awarded a nomination. I'm thrilled to see both of them back on AMC.
