All My Children’s favorite dastardly doc, Dr. David Hayward, played by fan favorite and Daytime Emmy winner, Vincent Irizarry revealed in an interview to publicize the just completed A Tribute to Pine Valley personal appearance tour that things are still up in the air to what his next career move is, and if he will be joining AMC online via Prospect Park in 2012.

Irizarry told blogcritics.org, “They haven’t approached all the actors, they’ve approached just a small handful thus far. So at the moment, I have no idea whether I am going to continue on online. Until they come to me and we know what is going on I can’t say.  I would love to if it is something that makes sense. It’s a great character. It really is a great character, but if it doesn’t happen… then I move on. At the moment, right now, I am a free agent until they come to me and we’ll see what’s going on. I don’t know what their plans are. It’s too hard for me to speculate what could happen and what is going to happen at this point.”

How do you feel about AMC with or without Dr. David? Let us know.

I want VI to sign with PP almost as much as I want TK to sign. LOL!! But I’m confused. I am almost postive that I read that VI has been approached and that they were in negotiations. Which is it??

AMC needs VI and David. I am pretty sure that PP is not stupid enough to let this talent out of their site.

people don’t believe this is a current interview and that VI has not only been approached but has signed. Is this the most recent update, Mr. Fairman?

I’m not watching AMC 2.0 without VI/David on it, so PP had better get on the ball!

I love Vincent Irizarry, and the brilliant Dr. David Hayward he portrays. Every show needs that character or two that we all love to hate, and David and Adam C were it for AMC, so I cannot image that PP will be foolish enough not to make Vincent an offer he can’t refuse. Besides his dirty doings around PV, I also like the soft side of him that he allows us to see every so often, and I hope if and when he signs with PP, he pursues the softness David and Cara are now sharing. I miss AMC and can’t wait to see it via PP.

yes i love david hayward & definitely would love to see him online – but i also have to agree with vincent when he said “if it is something that makes sense”…………………….
i do not want david to become a cartoon character – vincent is just to awesome of an actor to be doing that nonsense………….

Kelly Ripa To Guest Star On CW’s Riverdale

Here’s a fun bit of casting news!  Live with Kelly and Ryan and former All My Children star, Kelly Ripa  (Ex-Hayley) is joining her real-life husband, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC) on the hit CW soapy drama Riverdale.

Consuelos already plays the the role of Hiram Lodge, and now Ripa will plays his mistress, Mrs. Mulwray.

Kelly shared the inspired-casting choice on Instagram relating: “It’s a family affair …23 years of auditioning for a role i was born to play. Coming soon to the CW;s Riverdale.”’

The CW released a statement on the casting of Ripa, adding: “Kelly Ripa will guest star on Riverdale as Mrs. Mulwray. Confident and tough, she is Hiram Lodge’s alleged mistress. She’s a beautiful, icy, femme fatale who gets caught up in a conspiracy that’s much bigger than she initially realized.”

Film buffs take note!  Ripa’s character name is borrowed from Faye Dunaway’s Oscar-nominated role in Chinatown (1974), Evelyn Mulwray.   Those who saw Chinatown know that Evelyn was a femme fatale as well caught up in a conspiracy!

And there is more “All in the Consuleos Family” casting.  The couple’s son Michael is portraying the teen-aged version of Hiram on tonight’s all-new episode.

Riverdale airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT
