They both starred on All My Children; they both had the honor of playing Adam Chandler's son, J.R.; and now both Jacob Young and Jonathan Bennett will be in the same place at the same time: on Young's YouTube series Daytime After Dark.
Young took to social media to announce that Bennett will be the special guest star on his Halloween episode of the virtual talk show, and not just because All Hallows' Eve calls for double trouble: Bennett is the host of the Food Network series Halloween Wars.
The reality competition show pits five teams made up of cake sculptors, sugar artists, and pumpkin carvers against each other to produce the ultimate Halloween-themed display. Young will most definitely get Bennett to spill some details about that as well as his upcoming Hallmark Christmas movie, Christmas Made to Order, which is set to premiere on Sunday, December 23.
"There will be some tricks, and there will be plenty of treats," Young teases of the special Halloween episode. "Exclusively on Daytime After Dark."

Emmy-winning actor Jacob Young launched his virtual talk show Daytime After Dark at the beginning of October. He got his start in daytime television as The Bold and the Beautiful's Rick Forrester in 1997. He later went on to play General Hospital's Lucky Spencer from 2000 to 2003 and All My Children's J.R. Chandler from 2003 to 2011. After AMC's cancellation, he reprised his role as B&B's Rick Forrester and is currently on recurring status with the CBS soap opera.
All My Children's J.R. was one of Jonathan Bennett's first roles, which he played from 2001 to 2002. He went on to appear in major films like Mean Girls and Cheaper by the Dozen 2, as well as television shows like Veronica Mars, Smallville, Boston Public, and Awkward. In 2015, he began hosting Food Network's Cake Wars and currently hosts the network's Halloween Wars.
