Days of our Lives will soon be called “Daytime Emmy winners of our Lives”!  All weekend long, and as the week started this Monday, reports abound have been posted and circulated that Vincent Irizarry, who has quite the daytime drama series  resume, is bringing his A-game to the infused NBC soap opera as the show pumps up through its upcoming 50th anniversary in November and beyond!

This afternoon Yahoo TV officially confirmed all reports!  According to the entertainment outlet, Irizarry will play “a character with strong connections to the Kiriakis family.”  The actor began taping earlier this month in August, but will not make his on-screen debut till sometime in early 2016.

TV Line then followed suit revealing more Intel, which included that Irizarry’s character name is Deimos and he will debut in mid-January.

Vincent, who got his soap opera start as anti-hero Lujack and later Nick on Guiding Light once played opposite Judi Evans’ Beth Raines, and may have the opportunity to work with her again if Salem’s Adrienne is the mix with Irizarry’s DAYS character.

The popular soap veteran also appeared Santa Barbara, played Dr. Evil – David Hayward on All My Children, and also appeared as David Chow on The Young and the Restless.

Irizarry will join other new Salem Daytime Emmy winners added to the cast that includes ; A Martinez and Jordi Vilasuso, along with DAYS long time cast members: Eric Martsolf and Suzanne Rogers who have previous won the gold, and Tamara Braun, who is reprising her Emmy-winning role as Ava Vitali later this year.

Oh, thank you soap gods. I love, love David. What an addition. Oh, yes….I hope he brings a little of his diabolical naughtiness, just a wee bit, to the landscape…. Heads will roll. I don’t care in what capacity he will be cast; I am just so happy to see him on my screen. Welcome, David!!!!

I love gh
I love gh

He is exactly what any of the soaps need. Truly. He will be great as a Kiriakis.
That said, here’s how he could make any of our soaps better:

GH – playing a Cassadine vying for control of Nicholas’s holdings, or his AMC David Hayward

B&B – Bill Spencer’s smarmy brother

Y&R – Victor’s long, lost brother – would be great w/Ashley

CeeCee

Yes, I love GH…I became so carried away, I called Vincent, David (AMC)….LOL.
And, yes, he would make the best Cassadine. That would be even more riveting than a Kiriakis.

“… Just a wee bit naughty”

Victor’s good for nothing younger brother- Xander’s father is my guess. Love JA as Victor but he is getting up there in years, maybe he would like to retire and they are grooming a heir apparent to take his place as head of the family should JA retire from acting soon. But if JA stays put, then it will be fun seeing these two amazing actors in scenes together.

Patrick

YES, YES, YES

“I swear to you that is exactly what I thought”

I’m with you

either a DiMera… or Victor Anniston younger brother… and VI’ son… is Xander

HUGE LET

opportune

capitalize time for DAYS production w/ Sony and NBC

Except that Victor has said in dialogue that “when Xander’s father died I tried to fill that void,” or something to that effect. In other words, dialogue has been delivered that said good-for-nothing-brother is dead.

So when has death been a problem on a soap LOL — Xander’s daddy could be alive and well– and ready to come back and claim his rightful spot in the family.

A fine, understated, wickedly intelligent and eloquent actor. He doesn’t get the acclaim like Bergman, Geary, Bernard, Le Blanc, Keating or Deas, but he can blow the lid off of any script he’s given as well as any of them. The man can act. I am so happy to hear he’s joining the ranks on my favourite soap!

Happy for Vincent Irizarry. He is very talented.

Over a month ago I recommended (via Twitter) to Greg Meng and Dena Higley that they cast Vincent on Days. I told them he would be perfect as a recast of Peter Blake. The DiMera family is the most in need of a resurge (IMO). I just hope he is going to be at Day of Days. I have always had a huge crush on Vincent!

I have seen Vincent Irizarry on All My Children and I have always thought he could play “Barnabas Collins” in a new Dark Shadows revamp. ~o~

Is it 2016 yet? I can’t wait!!

And the good news just keeps on coming. I feel like that DOOL has not had a true Lead Actor since James Scott (EJ) left the show. I think Patch, Bo, a new storyline for Rafe, Chad, Jordi and Vincest’s character is like going from famine to feast. The show today was AMAZING. I’m glad to see Kayla be something more than a prop. Hope/Aidan, Abigail/Ben scenes were good. I am hoping if the show is not going to put Kate with Justin, she gets with Vincent’s character. If one more soap legend joins the show, I hope it is Eileen Davidson or Alison Sweeney. Please keep Brady, Nicole, Maggie and Victor in the mix with all of these characters. Will Jordi’s character be a new love interest for Jennifer? Thank you Ken Corday for doing everything you can to save the show.

I suspect that Eve is going to be crying on Justin’s shoulders as she mourns Paige’s murder.

BITE YOUR TONGUE!!!
Why on earth would you want the fabulous Vincent Irizarry saddled with Jennifer??!!?? I thought you liked the man!
LOL

I fear that Days is in jeopardy of becoming a General Hospital clone with the hiring of all these big names in the soap world….just feel that they are bringing too many new characters on board and won’t be writing good stories for the existing ones…..please, dont become like GH did…they hired all those actors from other shows and now they are tanking in the ratings….they even replaced the head writers…….just hope that Josh can tie these characters to existing families and produce great drama with lots of romance and some comedy thrown in and not at the expense of existing characters….so far Josh and Dena have gotten Days back on the right track….let’s hope they can keep up the momentum……just my opinion!!!!!

SZima
SZima

With this new serial killer in town eliminating a bunch a characters, they need to replenish the cast.
Besides, many of the returning characters are short-term, only coming back for the 50th anniversary, just like GH did for their anniversary a couple years ago.

Ces
Ces

You’re absolutely right Scott. Hiring all those ex OLTL’s sank GH big time; then when the changed the characters of those actors, it made it even worse. The only place for those actors to go now is off the show — as much as I like Roger Howarth the actor, I don’t care for Franco the character and good lord, someone remove Kiki/Caca from my screen!

Lou Piikes

Hayley Erin (KiKi) is not from OLTL. Hayley is doing a better job in the role than Starr Manning aka KA.

Ces

I know that Lou. She is worse than Kristen Alderson. The role should be eliminated.

I’m very disappointed as I thought Vincent was coming to General Hospital as an evil Cassadine. I am very happy for Days of our Lives – they are getting a very talented actor – I watched him on All My Children as Dr. David Hayward, the Evil Doctor, and was hoping he would come to GH and give us some of his evil ways on this show!!!

Jimh(leave it to beaver)
Jimh(leave it to beaver)

I was hoping he’d end up on GH as Lauras doctor who later turns out to be a Cassidine or Alans long lost unknown son but now that Days is my favorite again itll be interesting to see him on Days as one of the Ks…this is a positive move for Days…itll reach number two soap by 2016…was Adriennes mom killed off or still alive…if the latter bring on Tina Sloane to play her(GL fans will know why???)…lol

Rose

He would have made a great “doctor” or Cassidine on GH. Would have liked to see him team up with Laura, or even Rebecca. They both seem to have a reputation for liking bad boys. But alas! Not deserting GH, but I’ll have to add Days to my new list of shows to watch.

Scott (ATWT Fan)

I loved Vincent on All My Children, so I hope he’s more David Hayward than David Chow on The Young and the Restless, oh, and that he isn’t playing someone by the name of David!

I hope Days isn’t making the same mistake that has ruined GH….TOO MANY CHARACTERS that nobody cares about.

Am not a GH fan but I read the posts here. Who are the characters on GH that no one cares about?

@MarkY Most people aren’t fans of Franco, Nina, Kiki, Ava, Sabrina, Valerie, Brad, Rosalie, Madeline and Lesil. They have all been recent additions to the cast, within the last few years.

WOW! DAYS is on FIRE. The budget must be huge…all these big daytime names joining, or rejoining.
I’m loving it! It will be a huge contender to win Outstanding Lead Drama on it’s own next spring!!!
Loves DAYS, love the new addition. Make sure that there is good amount of focus on the players who are in Salem now and not murdered. Healthy balance between the vets and newbies. Keep it up DAYS. You are on FIRE!!

Jeremy

yes Patrick it sure is. I feel like the show itself is really finally, FIGHTING to survive. I do hope we some really worthy daytime emmy pre-nominations submitted by DAYS in the new year.
We have fantastic actors like Judi Evans and Kassie DePaiva, who both are definitely worthy for submission, and many others, would love to see Billy Flynn (CHAD) added on as Supporting Actor, he’s fabulous. What a gem. Who else? Ari Zucker is always bringing it.

All I know is that this soap misses the boat by taping so far in advance. Once he gets on no matter what character he will play, he will make the show alive. I loved him on All my Children. Another thing I want to ask. They have the most hideous sets… When will they get a facelift and modernize these homes.

Tivette
Tivette

I agree about the stale sets! And what’s with the antique clock on the Horton mantle…it looks like it’s never been dusted since the first show 50 years ago!!!

SZima
SZima

Agree about the sets! I started watching 2-3 years ago and that was so distracting. All the homes look like leftovers from the 60’s.
And the wardrobe runs a close second!!

Tom Jenkins
Tom Jenkins

The sets are really in need of assistance – Everyone is either (literally) bumping into each other at the Square (honestly, that “bumping into each other” routine is so done to death) or at Brady’s Pub with those outdated mini-curtains from 1968, or they are in the Fake Leaf Park. Really? It doesn’t seem like it would be a very interesting town to visit. Of course, there are some hospital scenes thrown in for good measure – build some sets!

Rose
Rose

Does anyone know if they’ve changed the six?-months-ahead-shooting schedule with the new redo’s?

Ray

I think the lighting has been much better. It showed Hope’s bedroom and outside the front door of the house last week. I would like to see some of the money spent on actor’s salaries on more set design. I would still love the peer back.

Lou Piikes

I wish tptb would bring back salem place. It was a great outdoor set that didn’t look fake.

Thank you for correcting me on pier versus peer. I hate to make those types of mistakes. I look forward to seeing the pier scenes and everything else the show has planned.

I’m not one to correct others spelling and grammar mistakes and/or typos. My only concern was to assure you of the upcoming pier/peer/pear/pere scenes. lol

I’m not sure if it will be the most recent pier or the one from the 80’s.

And LOVE Vincent!!! Been a fan of his since he began on AMC and he can act! I’d love to see him toy with Eve and Jennifer and maybe teach Theresa a lesson or two. :))

Not really thrilled. Why do they keep casting so many people if they are killing off characters? I don’t get it. Granted, Serena wasn’t that great. I think they could have done more with Xander. It just seems like they will have a really huge cast.

Rose

OMGoodness…Vincent and Stephen Nichols together, both on Days. They may have just gotten a new viewer.

I wish he would’ve been cast as Peter Blake!!! He would’ve made an unbelievable Dimera!!!! Well the Kiriakis Clan could use a boost, and he’s the man to do it!!! I cannot wait for this!!! He is the epitome of sexiness and a damn good actor!!!! I’m excited for this and the new DAYS teen set. The new Claire and Ciara are gorgeous!!!!!!

Ces

As much as I like Vincent Irizarry, DAYS is just going to inflate their cast like GH. What good did that do GH? It hasn’t. Veterans get pushed aside and newcomers get shoved down our throats.

I’m happy for Days fans. It seems like they are positioning themselves to pull away from GH in the ratings. I just hope the big wigs at Days dont screw over the viewers like they did at GH and stunt cast for their anniversary!

Why call Vincent Irizarry “Daytime Emmy winners of Days of our Lives” when he did not win an Emmy for his work on that show. Eric Martsolf won an Emmy for his role on Days of our Lives. If any male should have that title, it should be Eric Martsolf, not Vincent Irizarry. Irizarry should be called “Daytime Emmy winner of…” whatever show(s) he won an Emmy for.

I hope they pair him with Judi Evans!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! they were so good as Beth and Lujack on Guiding Light!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I, am absolutely thrilled that VI has joined DOOL , I just hope that the writers remember the great chemistry between him and Judi Evans and put them in a storyline together, maybe a new triangle with Wally, Judi and Vincent. OH HAPPY DAY!!!

Vincent Irizarry is a fantastic actor! I’m happy he’s back on daytime, but it would have been nice to see him on GH as a Cassadine! DAYS is on fire for the 50th anniversary though, with all of the recent cast additions and returns. This is great news for DAYS fans!

Well, ABC-TV’s astonishingly stupid decision to cancel ALL MY CHILDREN left many an actor searching for other avenues to work in.
So, David is a fine actor and great at playing manipulative misunderstood characters.
I am sure he will be a wonderful addition to Days of Our Lives.
In a way, ABC’s loss is turning out to be NBC’s gain.

The Chew Cancelled After 7 Seasons; A Slice Of Justice For All My Children Fans?

Karma is a bitch! ABC announced yesterday that the foodie series The Chew has been axed after seven seasons. 

The Chew lost significant viewers when ABC fired main co-host chef, Mario Batali after reports of alleged sexual harassment over many years. Clinton Kelly, Carla Hall, and Michael Symon have remained the regular series hosts.

In addition, The Chew dropped 17% with women in the 18-49 demo and this has been its least watched season since its debut in 2011.  As ABC Daytime fans know, The Chew replaced iconic soap opera All My Children, when ABC made the decision to cancel the beloved soap and replace it with the food show.

So, let’s take a look at the numbers: All My Children lasted 41 years, while The Chew lasted 7 seasons. Hmm …

ABC noted that The Chew will cease production at the end of this season, but will continue to air until September with all-new episodes in June.  In addition, ABC announced that Good Morning America will expand to three hours.  Thus, switching up the ABC morning line-up.

So, are you glad that The Chew got fried?  Is this justice for All My Children fans who miss their beloved Pine Valley?  Comment below.

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

Photo Credit: HutchinsPhoto.com

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…)
