Sad All My Children news: James Mitchell who played Palmer Cortlandt passed away January 22 of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, complicated by pneumonia. He was 89. He last appeared on AMC January 5th for the show's 40th anniversary. He joined the show in 1979. In September 2008, James retired and relocated to California. AMC is planning a tribute, but it probably won't air until spring.
I was just reading an article in the December 29, 2009 issue of Soap Opera Digest with Jill Larson, who plays Opal, and she was talking about how she's good friends with James and keeps in close touch with him. RIP James.
