Vincent Irizarry who plays Dr. David Hayward for all he is worth and then some took to his Facebook page to address his many fans and followers with a post titled: To Be or Not To Be on AMC…That is the Question. In it, Irizarry  shares his thoughts and his status with All My Children now that the show is moving to the web.

Irizarry stated, “I’ve been getting a lot of questions from many of you, asking 2 things: am I going to the AMC Fan Event, and will I be staying with the show when it transitions to the internet? The first is easy, yes, I plan on being at the AMC Fan Event at the end of the month. The second, not so easy. Some have even informed me that it was reported somewhere that I’m staying with the show. That is not at all true at this time. Until I hear from the new producers to learn what they’re offering, I have to work under the assumption that my contract with the show ends on Aug 31 and plan accordingly, which I am.”

So can AMC be the same show without the dastardly and charming doc manipulating, drugging, and transforming the lives of so many of the beloved citizens of Pine Valley? We think not!

I certainly hope he stays on and at least he seems open to it but like everyone on the shows right now, they seem to be as in the dark about what the transition will entail as the public. Truthfully, i don’t think Prospect Park had all the details worked out and the news got leaked before they were quite ready. Hopefully when they get everything ironed out and have a chance to get with the cast about offers, we will be seeing many of our favs including Vincent Irizzarry’s David Hayward!

VI is the ONLY reason to watch this show to begin with, so if he doesn’t transition to the online version, its really got a tough battle to be successful.

I am so sorry, but it is time for David to go! He has done too much, to too many people. VI is a great actor, and I have followed him from his GL days. But, enough is enough!!

I think Vincent and Dr. Hayward should go straight to prime time. He could be the next “House”.

Vincent Irrizarry is why I started watching AMC and will continue to watch it online or anywhere. This being said, I hope that he tries to find other work to showcase his talent because I think he is worth a great deal more than an online show where many of the fans dislike him because he played such a great evil doctor. I watched him on GL and AMC and he is a talented diverse actor that is better than the soaps in my opinion. I hope that he does not disappear because I think he is AMC. Good Luck… Read more »

I HOPE THAT PROSPECT PARK WILL BE ABLE TO AFFORD TO KEEP EVERYONE!
THAT BEING SAID, WE HAVE TO DEAL WITH FINANCIAL REALITY! THERE WILL BE FOUR (4) SHOWS LEFT ON T.V. THAT MEANS THEY CAN NOT OFFER EMPLOYMENT TO THE WHOLE CAST OF AMC & OLTL!! THERE WILL NOT BE ENOUGH ROOM FOR THEM PLUS THEIR REGULAR CASTS!!
I HOPE AMC & OLTL REMAIN INTACT ON-LINE.
I LOVE VINCENTS “DAVID” BUT, THERE IS ONLY SO MUCH THE EVIL DOCTOR DAVID CAN DO WITHOUT FINALLY PAYING FOR HIS CRIMES!

Hello Vincent, Read your comments about AMC and was so hoping that the show will go on with the internet! I am from Naples, Florida living in Fiddlers Creek and saw your name on the members list; do you still own the home? I certainly hope you remain with the show and that it will give us some new and devious plots involving Dr. Hayward! I have been watching the show for 25 years and want it to continue; I understand you are planning your future with or without the show; don’t make plans too soon, we want the dastardly… Read more »

Michael B. Jordan Pays Tribute To Chadwick Boseman: “Since Nearly The Beginning Of My Career, Starting with All My Children When I was 16 Years Old You Paved The Way For Me”

Following the news of the tragic death of now motion picture icon, Chadwick Boseman late Friday, tributes and sentiments have poured in from celebrities, politicians and fans from all across the world.

Chadwick Boseman passed away late last week at the age of 43 from colon cancer – a battle he kept silent about for the last four years of life.

No one could be more intertwined with Boseman’s career than that of his fellow Black Panther star, Michael B. Jordan.  For Jordan took over the role of Reggie Porter on All My Children from Boseman after the late actor lasted one week, following standing up to, and addressing concerns, of racial stereotypes in the way that the part was written.  Reggie was introduced to Pine Valley as a gang member in 2003.  As previously reported it was Boseman who helped the soap opera improve the role that Jordan took over with some recommendations.

Now Michael B. Jordan has written a heartfelt remembrance of Chadwick that he shared on his Instagram, and what he has meant to his life, including how he showed him how to be better, to honor purpose and create legacy.

Read below Michael’s post:

“I’ve been trying to find the words, but nothing comes close to how I feel. I’ve been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug…everything.

I wish we had more time.

One of the last times we spoke, you said we were forever linked , and now the truth of that means more to me than ever. Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old you paved the way for me. You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not…I’ve been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness.

I wish we had more time.

Everything you’ve given the world … the legends and heroes that you’ve shown us we are … will live on forever. But the thing that hurts the most is that I now understand how much of a legend and hero YOU are. Through it all, you never lost sight of what you loved most. You cared about your family , your friends, your craft, your spirit. You cared about the kids, the community, our culture and humanity. You cared about me. You are my big brother, but I never fully got a chance to tell you, or to truly give you your flowers while you were here.

I wish we had more time.

I’m more aware now than ever that time is short with people we love and admire. I’m gonna miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor, and incredible gifts. I’ll miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes. I’m dedicating the rest of my days to live the way you did. With grace, courage, and no regrets. “Is this your king!?” Yes . he . is!  Rest In Power Brother.”

What do you think of Michael’s tribute to Chadwick and how they have been interconnected dating back to 2003 and All My Children? Comment below.

Chadwick Boseman, ‘Black Panther’ Star and the Original Reggie On AMC, Dies At 43

In just heartbreaking news in an already dismal 2020, one of the brightest motion picture stars, Chadwick Boseman has died at the age of 43.

Boseman was battling colon cancer for the last four years of his life.  According to his rep, Boseman was diagnosed in 2016 with stage 3 colon cancer and his battle continued as it progressed to stage 4

Chadwick passed away with his wife and family by his side in his home.   In a shocking revelation, all of the movie performances in the last four years he has filmed were done in between chemotherapy and countless surgery.

Boseman is best known for his groundbreaking role as King T’Challa  in Black Panther.   His performance was the first ever Marvel Studio movie headlined by a black actor.  The film was nominated for an Academy Award.   He first appeared as the character in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War.

Most recently, Chadwick appeared in the Spike Lee’s Vietnam War drama Da 5 Bloods, and this year he’s due to appear opposite Viola Davis Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” the film adaptation of the August Wilson play.  The actor starred in other films, including playing James Brown in Get On Up and Jackie Robinson in 42,  and the lead role in Marshall.

However, Boseman actually got his start on All My Children when he was the original actor cast in the role of Reggie Porter.  He appeared on the soap for only one week before the role was recast with none other than Michael B. Jordan, and their paths could eventually cross years later on multiple film projects.

In an interview in 2019, Boseman revealed what led him to be fired from All My Children stating:  “When I got it (the part), I was like, ‘This is not part of my manifesto. This is not part of what I want to do. How can I make it work?’ Because with a soap opera, you don’t know the full scope of what’s gonna happen — you don’t know where they’re gonna take the character, because they don’t always know where the character is going. And because of that, there’s possibly room for me to adjust this and change it and make it so it’s stereotypical on the page but not on the screen.”

For Boseman had issues with how Reggie was portrayed and how it was written with racial stereotypes.  In story, Reggie was a young gang member who was adopted by Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) and her husband, Jackson Montgomery (Walt Willey). “I remember going home and thinking, ‘Do I say something to them about this? Do I just do it?’ And I couldn’t just do it. “I had to voice my opinions and put my stamp on it. And the good thing about it was, it changed it a little bit for Michael B. Jordan.”  Apparently the producers told Boseman he was too much trouble but took some of his suggestions on the role moving forward.
