After all the murmurs, the rumors, and the buzz of Serial Scoop’s recent blind item where they indicated that: A former Daytime Emmy winner from a P&G soap opera that has since appeared in primetime, an ABC/Prospect Park soap, and, recently, a Hulu series was joining the cast of Days of our Lives, the soap site revealed the actor’s identity today.

Fan favorite Jordi Vilasuso (as many had guessed) has joined the NBC soap opera in a character that is described to have a connection with Galen Gering’s Rafe Hernandez!

Jordi has most recently appeared in the Hulu series South Beach, and won a Daytime Emmy while on Guiding Light in the role of Tony Santos.  He has appeared as Dr. Griffin Castillo in both the ABC and online versions of All My Children, and appeared in the primetime soap Fashion House.  There has been no official confirmation from Days of our Lives on this casting news, or even a first airdate.

What do you think of Jordi coming to DAYS?  Who will he play in Salem?  Share your thoughts below!

    I’m not familiar with this actor, but if his character is supposed to have a connection to Rafe then I’m guessing a brother or cousin.

      On Guiding Light he was paired with Michelle Bauer who was portrayed by Rebecca Budig now on GH..Bethany Joy Lenz who went on to play Hayley James on One Tree Hill..amongst others who portrayed the role..Tony Santos mama was one vicious Mob boss and that lifestyle led to his death on the show.

    Jordi is Rafe’s brother Dario.

      I thought the same thing, they will be brothers.

      Are you guessing or do you know for sure that Dario is returning to Salem? I hope you are correct about the character being Dario. I enjoyed the character of Dario the last time around. His return to Salem would be a boost to the character of Rafe because Rafe’s life in Salem would be fuller!

      I think the writers made a mistake by separating Rafe and Jordan. That was a good match. Rafe needed to move on from Sami. So bringing back Dario will be good for Rafe.

      I am aware that A. Martinez has been brought to Salem as Rafe’s Dad. However since the character has not yet been introduced I am not touching that. But I do hope that story is very successful.

        If Dario is being recast that would be great. I’d love to see Rafe have more family interactions in Salem.

        I’m just making an educated guess.

    I think he’ll play Rafe’s brother and Paul’s new love interest. He and Paul will meet at a Basic Black fashion show.

    • CeeCee

      August 29, 2015 at 12:36 pm

      Yeah, 4ever, or in that infamous park or that 2 by 4 area called the Horton square

        August 30, 2015 at 12:30 pm

        Good news, CeeCee… DAYS has been filming/taping on location! I’m sorry I don’t have the sources or links, but I do know they are reliable. I also saw an interview with Kristian Alfonso (Hope) who confirmed it’s true.

        Like I’ve been saying…DAYS means business. They’re fighting hard!!!!!

      • CeeCee

        August 30, 2015 at 10:20 pm

        That is good news. For once, I’d like to fix my eyes on some real background greenery and not the same park bench and foliage. LOL.

    • Eddie

      August 29, 2015 at 4:11 pm

      That sounds like a very interesting story line. I hope it goes the distance.

    • Gmbenet

      August 30, 2015 at 1:59 am

      If the brother of Rafe that you are referring to is Dario, he is neither gay or bisexual. At least he wasn’t the first time around in Salem. I hope Days is through with the gay storyline. It helped the ratings to decline drastically. So they ought to leave that alone!!

      By the way did you hear how The Bold and the Beautiful too a ratings hit during the week of the wedding of the transgender character? Time to wake up and smell the coffee! The LGBT stories are bad for ratings.

      • Tom Jenkins

        August 31, 2015 at 12:20 pm

        I beg to differ – the storyline between Will and Sonny was hardly a ratings killer, if anything it helped to draw in New viewers. Obviously, at the risk of sounding offensive, you just don’t want any storylines involving gay characters – but, this is 2015 this isn’t 1985 and times have changed.
        Sonny may be off the canvas for the time being, but the character will return, but what the ultimate fate shall be between he and Will remains to be seen. Paul is also a gay character, would you like to see him go as well – it’s quite evident from your post that you are totally against anyone who is a tad off the beaten trail character-wise.

      • Gmbenet

        August 31, 2015 at 6:50 pm

        It is a fact that during the weeks when the gay storyline on Days was front and center, the ratings were at their lowest. Check it out. The numbers do not lie. I believe that is a major reason for the change in head writers on Days. Ken Corday had to do something before he lost the show altogether.

        For the record, I have made no secret of the fact that I am not in favor of a gay storyline on Days. So many of my previous posts on this website have reflected my thoughts about it that I will not repeat those thoughts in this post. Those who have read other posts by me already know my position and I dare not weary them or myself with it.

        Nevertheless, you don’t have to take my word about the ratings. Go and see for yourself. I am well aware of what year we are living in. So are the people who did not watch Days because of the gay storyline. It didn’t seem to matter to them what year it is. Some people act on principles and not on what is trendy or politically correct. I happen to be one and so are the people who did NOT watch Days because of the gay storyline.

    A long, lost Hernandez brother?

    So, is this Eve’s ex-husband and Paige’s father?

    • CeeCee

      Hmmmmm. Good one, Kelly!

        August 29, 2015 at 6:01 pm

        There you are…havent read your comments for some time…he could be Paige’s PawPaw but the actor himself is like 35 which means he is either going to play older or he got Eve prego when he was only 15…lol…Days sure has improved…i like it so much better than GH now which i rarely watch…hope new writers improve things real soon over there!!! Chow!!!

      • CeeCee

        August 29, 2015 at 7:18 pm

        Hi, Jimh. Yeah,I’m here, my friend. I took off to parts unknown for a few weeks…LOL.
        And, there you are setting me straight. I guess this mystery guy is too young to be Eve’s ex.
        Yes, I am really getting into DOOL, again….I especially appreciate Chad getting a challenging and interesting storyline. Also waiting for Clyde to head for the gallows……with Ben in tow.
        I always had a creepy feeling about Aidan, too. Later.

        CeeCee…just like a GH character who disappears for weeks…lol…are you on contract now or recurring…lol…kidding…lol

        August 30, 2015 at 12:37 pm

        Thank you, my friend. We did a lot of cruising on the high seas. LOL…..with my five siblings and respective families. I would love to go to Egypt, we were within reach, but too much turmoil in those waters and neighboring countries. Perhaps, one day!
        I see that your favorite soap, DOOL, is regaining foothold. You must be so overjoyed. I am loving it, myself, right now. Later.

      • CeeCee

        August 30, 2015 at 12:39 pm

        It’s so good to see you haven’t lost your sense of humor, Jimh. I love it, and you. Later, friend.

    Yea!! I like the guy. Could be be recast for Rafe’s brother?

  7. Joan Maglitto

    August 28, 2015 at 8:28 pm

    Will he be another brother ?

  8. Brian

    August 28, 2015 at 9:12 pm

    I was hoping he would be Dario (his brother) but it sounds like maybe just an old buddy. I love Jordi and he needs to be on a soap so I hope they make it work and make his character a good one.

  9. Ghlover

    He is the best! Greatbnews for Days! Hope he is paired with Theresa

  10. Ray

    August 28, 2015 at 10:32 pm

    Another excellent addition. I hope to see him paired with Nicole.

  11. William

    August 29, 2015 at 4:43 am

    I’ll be really upset if they have used him to recast Dario, Rafe’s younger brother. I really loved Francisco San Martin and I still wish they had kept his character as he was the only Hernandez sibling I ever liked.

  12. Franny Wright

    August 29, 2015 at 6:12 am

    Great news! Days has been excellent & Jordi will fit in just fine….I look forward to seeing him in Salem. He has been awesome in Hulu’s South Beach & I always liked him on #AMC. He’s also a really nice guy. Congrats to Jordi on his new role!

  13. Jimh(leave it to beaver)

    August 29, 2015 at 8:48 am

    Dario? or is he too old but hey they did age the kids…lol

    • Patrick

      August 29, 2015 at 12:24 pm

      if this is the “big” surprise…. i’m a little deflated…. OK… hold that thought

      LOL : where is my Susan Flannery and/or Jamie Lyn Bauer ?

      I already like the ideas !

      1. Paul nuLOVE
      2. Theresa nuLOVE
      3. Eve; ex-husband

      could be any one of these three…. i’m partial to him being paired with #1 or #3. Just to get Eve out of Jennifer orbit

      Xander : i’m going to prop, laud, and applause, how magnifying his ACTING skill reels

    • Benigno

      August 29, 2015 at 4:04 pm

      That would mean aging the rest of the young adult set as well since Dario is originally from that age-range.

      • Jimh(leave it to beaver)

        August 29, 2015 at 5:57 pm

        Not really…Will was born before E.J.,—now E.J. is old enough to be Wills daddy…lol

    • Patrick

      August 29, 2015 at 10:51 pm

      I truly only know him from his stint on AMC… and wasn’t disappointed

      the excitement and build IN Salem…. monumental… and lauded

    Well whoever he is it is just good to see poor Rafe get some family or friends back into his life– he has been floating around town solo for so long–I still think they should bring his mother into the show– a strict Catholic having a granddaughter being raised by a gay man would throw some reality into that story line- because lets face facts a lot of gay couples out there with children aren’t always embraced by their own families or the community around them– it would be a realistic story to tell.

    • Patrick

      August 29, 2015 at 5:05 pm

      yeah, I don’t know what was worse …. ? !

      Rafe or Nicole doing solo


      I think Nicole wins that by a long shot… and continues to…. yeah, even if she’s stuck with Daniel and Parker

      Rafe’alicious gets a brother… and Gabs is on the horizon… with her daughter.

      Galen Gerring…. doesn’t let up… just smitten(s)

      • Patrick

        August 30, 2015 at 12:36 pm

        Rafe is also getting a father?

        A. Martinez?

      • Jeremy

        August 31, 2015 at 11:15 pm

        I wonder if Ari will be aged and all of a sudden be 35? hahahaha

    • CeeCee

      August 30, 2015 at 7:20 am

      Yeah, poor Rafe is trying so hard to be stoic….not licking his wounds be so obvious. But, he’s drooling over Hope! I just don’t get it!!??

      • Jimh(leave it to beaver)

        August 30, 2015 at 1:43 pm

    One of Guiding Light’s most disastrous recasts was Tony Santos after Jordi left that show. He’s a breath of fresh air and will bring good things to “Days.”

  17. Michael (not Fairman)

    August 30, 2015 at 4:33 am

    I didn’t think Stephen Martines was the problem; it was more the way the show decided to rewrite the character of Tony to fit their new plans (that was Conboy and Weston, who did very little right on GL anyway, though the Ellen Wheeler storyline putting Tony in a triangle with Danny and Michelle was also a loser). One of the endearing things about Tony was an underlying sweetness that the character had when JV was playing him, which gave the character some dimension. That was totally gone in the second incarnation, and Tony was far less interesting as a result.

    I give Mr. Vilasuso props. He is in the minority among young soap actors who actually used their time on the soaps to grow as actors. So many of them remain no better when they leave than when they started, but by the time JV got his Emmy, I thought he deserved it.

    Glad to see him back on soaps.

    Jordi had auditioned previously for Will Horton, but turned down the roll. I seriously doubt he will be involved with Paul. Maybe tied with Bo, ISA, or Ava. For those who don’t know who he is, He is the brother in law to Bailey Madison. His wife Kaitlin is such a sweet person. I can’t wait to see him on DOOL.

    He was excellent on the ABC-TV version of ALL MY CHILDREN but was hardly utilized at all on Prospect Park’s butchered on-line version – I am sure he will do a very professional job – he looks like he could be Rafe’s cousin or brother.

  21. Eric Kane

    The pecs are PRIME – Google ’em!

    This is a great casting addition! Jordi was awesome on AMC; didn’t watch him on GL but I’ve heard great things. Hopefully he will be a recast Dario, and not just a random new character.

    If they truly want to bring the Hernandez family back to the forefront, I hope they bring Arianna back from the dead. Lindsay Hartley is very talented, and killing the character off was a huge mistake.

All My Children Alum Kim Delaney Joins The Cast of CHICAGO FIRE!

Photo Credit:

Pine Valley’s Jenny Gardner, who is all grown up and had a successful career in primetime television and films, has landed a primo role on NBC’s hit drama, Chicago Fire!

Casting news has revealed that Kim Delaney is joining the show in Season 6 where she will play the role of Jennifer Sheridan, the mother of Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney).

According to Deadline, Kim’s new role as Jennifer Sheridan is described as “warm, scripture-quoting and church-going. At one point she may have partied like it was 1979, but now it looks like she’s on the path of the straight and narrow. If you ask her, she’s moved on from the past, namely her messy divorce from her ex-husband Benny (Treat Williams), but old habits die very hard.”

Chicago Fire is currently on hiatus until after the Winter Olympics, when it begins again on March 1st.  As viewers know, in the last episode prior to the break, Kelly and Casey (Jesse Spenver) were seen jumping off a roof of a building while it was in flames in an exciting cliffhanger. (more…)
