Erica Kane's kid is making the move from Pine Valley to Melrose Place.
"All My Children" actor Colin Egglesfield has been cast on The CW's "Melrose" reboot as Auggie, an avid surfer and sous chef with dreams of one day owning his own restaurant.
Soap fans know Egglesfield as Josh Madden, a controversial character because his mother Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) supposedly aborted him in a 1970s "AMC" storyline, the first daytime storyline to deal directly with abortion.
However, in 2005, huge shocker: Turns out the pregnancy was never really terminated. Madden showed up in Pine Valley as an adult. How? Seems the crazy doctor took Erica's fetus and implanted it in another woman.
Actually, that story sounds like something that could've totally happened on the original "Melrose" series, doesn't it? Egglesfield should fit right in…
In addition, Stephanie Jacobsen ("Terminator: The
Sarah Connor Chronicles") has just signed on to play Lauren, a med student who moonlights as a high end call girl.
