All My Children: Inside a Pair of Returns

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."
