This is one All My Children rumor that's been confirmed:
Mario Van Peebles will be exiting the series this fall. We can only assume this means his character of Samuel Woods either hit the campaign trail hard, or will have won his Senate seat. We'd wager on the latter.
Despite the fate of Woods, his son will remain on the show. There are no plans for Sterling Suleiman, who plays Dre Woods, to go anywhere any time soon.
