Ricky Paull Goldin Picture

As loyal soap opera fans know by now, Jake Martin resurfaces on All My Children next week. He's a wounded hostage in Darfur, Sudan, now played by Ricky Paull Goldin (pictured).

"Jake is found on a dirt floor, a hostage of rebel fighters," Goldin said to The New York Daily News of his new character, who went to Africa in 2003 as a volunteer for Doctors Without Borders.

"They find out this Dr. Martin guy is funded by the high-profile Cambias Corporation, which has very deep pockets. Since they need money, they figure, 'Let's kidnap him and demand a ransom of $5 million.'"

Word gets back to Cambias honcho Zach Slater, who dispatches new head of security Aidan Devane to Africa to rescue Jake.

"The thing that's cool about Jake is, he's been in this war-torn country, so he's used to this stuff," says Goldin. "He's the type of guy who could be operating on somebody and have a bomb go off 100 feet away. He might flinch, but he'll keep working."
