Jake Martin Picture
One is coming back from hell. One, from heaven. But two new characters will shake up All My Children in the near future.

Indeed on April 30, daytime megastar Ricky Paull Goldin — who just exited Guiding Light — will join All My Children as the new Jake Martin. Viewers will discover that Jake, who left town in 2003 to join Doctors Without Borders in Africa, is currently held captive in Darfur, where he is being forced to treat one of the illegal armies.

As TV Guide reports, two episodes later, Emmy winner Cady McClain will rejoin the show as Dixie Martin... in the form of an angel

"Jake comes back emotionally scarred and with a very big secret," executive producer Julie Carruthers said. "He does not want to see his family. He wants to get back to the land he's grown to love."

All My Children Quotes

Greenlee Smythe Lavery: Just - I tried to remember when we weren't stressed to the max. Our honeymoon may have been the best time ever. I was just hoping that maybe tonight we could feel like that for just a few hours, let you remember how much I love you, how happy I am that I'm your wife, just like that night.
Ryan Lavery: Come here.
Greenlee Smythe Lavery: What? What are you...
Ryan Lavery: I remember everything. I remember it was going to be the first time that we made love as husband and wife. And I remember thinking to myself that my bullet wound was easy compared to waiting to make love to you. I wanted you so bad. I want you now. I want you right now.

Ryan: Do you feel that?
Gillian: Your heartbeat.
Ryan: OUR heartbeat.
