Josh Duhamel's returning to 'All My Children'

“All My Children” will end its run in a few months, but former star Josh Duhamel is sneaking in one last cameo.

Duhamel won a Daytime Emmy for his work on the ABC soap, and Entertainment Weekly reports that the 38-year-old actor will reprise his role of con man Leo Du Pres in at least one episode in August.

Duhamel's character died in 2003 after trying to save Rebecca Budig's character, Greenlee Smythe, in a waterfall accident. Of course, the body was never found, which leaves the writers room to bring back du Pres.

If you need your Duhamel fix before that August episode, “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” opens on June 29. “All My Children” will vacate its timeslot to make way for ABC’s new lifestyle food show “The Chew” in September.

Who else would you like to see do a cameo before “AMC” ends?

    Now that we know for sure that Thorsten Kaye is coming back, all is good!! (For those that don't know, he has signed on and starts filming in June) If they must bring any others back for a farewell, it should be the characters of Cliff and Nina. I'm sure Peter Bergman will do it if CBS will let him.

      I would love, love, love to see Gillian brought back too. No one else has ever been as good with Ryan. Such heat and steam between them.

    Glad they're brining Leo back, but I am really disappointed that they're ending the show. Sick to death of talk shows!!!!

    Vanessa! Maybe she can come back with Leo. She was such a witch, but I loved her. If Greenlee is gonna run off with Leo. Maybe they could bring Jillian back for Ryan? If they can bring DIxie back umpteen times, a simple matter of giving her heart away in a transplant shouldn't matter!

    My grandmother started watching AMC in the seventies in graduate school, so we are three generations of fans we love the show so much and we'll miss of the characters especially ERICA of course. God bless you all

  21. I knew Leo would be back!

    Of course Zack! (Didn't find his body, either) Kendall should have a "heart warming" visit from her brother, Josh, also. I'm sure the rest of the cast, who has "moved" will come back for an episode or 2. It would be nice to see Lilly again, also. Very excited to see leo! MmmMmmMmm!!!
