Eric Nelsen Cast as All My Children’s SORASed Adam Chandler III


 




Looks like Adam Chandler III might have gotten into some of Grandpa David's (Vincent Irizarry) rapid aging pills! Jill Larson (Opal) revealed on Facebook that actor Eric Nelsen has been cast as J.R. and Babe's son A.J. on All My Children.

Nelsen, who has appeared in such primetime hits as Blue Bloods and The Good Wife, is no stranger to soaps. The actor portrayed Kevin Marler on Guiding Light back in 2006.

    He sure looks like he could be the son of JR and Babe. The acting reel looks promising too.

    Why do I have a feeling that they’re going to pair Miranda and AC III? That would be a great nod to history, except that JR and Babe aren’t around.

    “Granddad, how did you and Grandma meet?”
    “well, we were switched at birth and I was kidnapped and pawned off as another mother’s child to replace a child who died, while your Grandma was presumed dead and then pawned off as me…” Talk about “meeting cute” ;-p

    This makes no sense. I thought they were fast forwarding 5 years? Eric Nelsen is 22 years old. I could buy AJ as 15 at the most but not 22. How is he now the same age as Petey? Petey would be 30. If this actor is 20 then how old is Dixie playing??!?!??! Dixie is the hottest 60 year old I have ever seen. That would make Opal 90 and her gap pal Erica about 80.

    LOL! In reality though, a lot of twenty-somethings play teens on soaps. I think Van Hansis, for example, was 24 when he took over the role as 16 year old Luke Snyder on ATWT.

    I hear you Cord2012, but it’s this kind of casting that makes soaps laughable. Mr. Nelson looks 22 and not 15. Hire an age appropriate actor or someone say 18 at the most.

    If you are going to go old with these characters I hear Mcauley Culkin is available. He can play 15. Mr. Nelsen and Culkin actually look alike.

    Shouldn’t they worry about casting JR instead of his son? He looks pretty old to be playing Dixie’s GRANDSON. This SORASing has been starting to really get outta hand.
