In a move that was kept top secret, it turns out that Days of our Lives has added yet another leading man coming to their canvas in the form of none other than soap veteran Daniel Cosgrove!

The actors known for his work on Guiding Light as Bill Lewis, As the World Turns as Chris Hughes (the final one before the show was canceled), and All My Children as Scott Chandler, has landed the role of “Aiden”, and has been shooting at NBC since this past September! With DAYS so far ahead in their shooting schedule, Cosgrove won’t appear on-screen as Aiden till late January!

Cosgrove told Soap Opera Digest on his new role, “This is the first time that I’ve ever played a daytime character that wasn’t played by someone else!”

So, just who is Aiden? Who on the Salem canvas can you see Aiden turn his romantic attentions towards?  We have our ideas, now we want to know yours! Weigh-in below!

Happy to see him back! Only hope the cast is not becoming too bloated and vets air time will decrease….again.

Chad, Cameron, Gabby, and someone else who’s name escapes me have left or will be leaving, so it shouldn’t make a difference. They just added Liam and now Aiden. Therefore they are still down 2 characters.

I think Aiden will hook up with Hope….they will make a cute couple….Now that Bois not coming back…Hope needs a mate… he is my choice….

Good news. I enjoyed his work on “AMC.” I hope with Daniel, Eric, Rafe and all of these new characters being brought n can lead to a new storyline for Kristian Alfonso. I hope DC’s new character will lead to a great storyline with Jordan and Nicole.

Why? The cast is so huge as is. Would love a STORY for Julie and Doug. Could Aiden be Bo? 😉

No, he said in quote above that he is playing a character that no other actor has played. I believe Peter Reckell will return as Bo. However, “Bo” may return only to find out that Hope has moved on romantically. If so, serves “Bo” right. Bo and Hope will probably eventually reconcile, but whatever happens in the meantime, “Bo” deserves.

There is no more BO. Peter said he will not come back and the character will NOT be recast

After Deidre Hall was let go in 2008, she said her days in Salem were over. But she came back. You never know. Sometimes situations and circumstances change or people have a change of heart. I understand Ken Corday said when Peter Reckell left that “Bo” would not be “killed off”. What if Mr. Corday changes his mind? (I don’t want or expect that to happen, but it could.) In a similar manner, Peter could have a change of heart or a change of circumstances/situation and want to come back. I cannot and would not dare to speak for Peter,… Read more »

He might be someone from Jordans mysterious past…Jordans abusive,controling husband is coming to Salem and he isnt too pleased shes hooked up with Rafe! But thats not Jordans only shocking secret…wait til Rafe finds out Jordan is the unknown grandaughter of his enemy Stefano Dimera…Jordan is the daughter of Anna and the late Tony Dimera! Ok, you got me…i made it up! lol

Uh-Oh! That must mean “Days of Our Lives” will be cancelled within the next 12 months.

E.V.E.R.Y. S.O.A.P. Cosgrove has “joined” over the past four years has been cancelled within a year of his joining …

I’m just joking, but please stop watching Days now so it won’t be cancelled.

Actually a different actor was on AMC playing that character when the soap was cancelled. So maybe that cancels out “the curse”. 😉

Why all these new cast members when the vets are left with little to no story line. Example Rafe Galen Gering.

Scott (ATWT Fan)
Guest
Scott (ATWT Fan)

Galen is far from a vet. Most of the (older) vets are either too “old” to be front burner, or the interest of head writers isn’t there.

I read an excerpt… in SOD.

Galen Gering… has been in the soapworld… a combined 14 years.

He may be a soap veteran, but not on this series. And Daniel is a vet, too. I believe Marie meant DAYS veteran that’ve been on the series.

I love Daniel, so I’m very to see him joining DAYS. While I’d rather have Michael Muhney join the series, I can’t be too upset. Aiden seems like it could be a great character. I cannot wait to see him back on my TV screen!

Daniel Cosgrove has a reputation as solid actor. I have seen him in a few primetime roles by clearly he can work in the daytime production pace. I get the feeling the Mark Collier (Liam) is a short run role. Daniel Cosgrove has more experience and fan base. All good for Days. I am also pleased he is a new character and not a recast. More freedom to write a new story. Also, interesting to see his age range 40s. Days knows demo and are casting for it. Good for them. Maybe Sony / CBS advocated for him. He has… Read more »

I do not know.. adam from eve… when it comes to Guy Wilson…. ie: the nuWill

judging from the pic…. I see from afar…an innocence. He has charisma to reel.

if he doesn’t take it all so seriously… because, he’s replacing a tour de force… 2 time emmy winner… and culls from his own ability… then…. I see.. Sonny… Justin, Adrienne, Sammi, and Lucas… Marlena, and Kate.. notwithstanding… the superior cast… giving way to Guy Wilson… shining… and paving his own road

Great casting news! He is a good actor and I really liked him over at AMC..This show is so consistently good..I am so glad I decided to tune in about 1 1/2 years ago..Great cast and writing team, still learning the show history but catching on.

Weird casting choice. His “reputation” aside, DAYS should be going for actors in the community with loyal, solid fanbases behind them, a la the other 3 soaps. While it doesn’t necessarily equate success in a role (Steve Burton on YR anyone?) I just think it would make more sense in terms of garnering more eyeballs. I know that’s not a guarantee either, but to me with DAYS flying high right now, why wouldn’t they at least try for it? Why let GH, YR and BB snag them all? Are those players more expensive? Probably but if they’re out of work… Read more »

I count on you. think the layers… the threads… of meshing… the cast… the older gen… their offspring… and their grandchildren… I think… it’s the bomb… thee one soap… that solidifies… what encapsulates… what serial IS: the best cast on daytime for a show that is written… 4 months… “4 months”… 4 MONTHS.. in advance… and… not one, 1, O-N-E.. complaint… from me… think the 6 week production of all the three remaining soaps… missing pieces of the puzzle… are we right? darn tootin!

I do not like DC and neither do I like his acting. He was terrible on ATWT. And he has the reputation of being on soaps that get axed within a year of his joining. It is surprising that DC gets hired regularly whereas far better and more talented actors like VH and ESS are not hired by soaps and shows.

“don’t you get lost in those magnificent eyes… and his presence”

“Ooh, la, la”

I watched him on Guiding Light – As the World Turns – All My Children

he is so likable… innately sexy… a keeper… sexy… loveable… all that

I like him

he’s a throwback… to the golden era… of gentleman… on fire… a mans stature… that reels… good television

Ahhhhhhhhhh…its Cancellation Cosgrove! He finished three soaps in 2 years! Guiding Light, As The World Turns, and All My Children. But Im just kidding. He is a likeable performer and a good actor and Days is good for hiring him.

jimh(leave it to beaver)
Guest
jimh(leave it to beaver)

Maybe since he was a recast in those other 3 cancelled soaps and now playing a new character at Days that isnt a recast, perhaps he’ll finally break that cancellation soap streak he seems known for from some of these post ive read…?

Patrick
Guest
Patrick

I just hope… he’s a doctor… as well…

I’m still so over… the mr. sanctity…. daniel…. double ugh!

he’d be fun to watch… and would overshadow… daniel…. and bring vibrance and excitement… to Jordan and Kayla

and hell raising Anne…. and Siren Theresa

Did they really hire Aiden for the story with Jordon Ridgeway? If not and they want Aiden with Hope; then why did they hire Liam? I thought that Liam signed a contract to play a significant role on Days!!!!! Supose to be Hope’s new love interest!!!!!! Waist of a good character!!!!!!

Aiden and Hope would make a cute couple!

Don’t forget 90210!!! haha! just kidding… I love DC, solid actor!!! I wish if Pete Reckell didn’t want to come back even just for a recurring scene here and there like Doug and Julie, that DOOL would get Robert Kelker-Kelly to. They are destroying the character and integrity of the Bo fans know and love!! It would be different if Hope were gone as well but with Kirsten Alfonso still on the show… it is only right that BO & HOPE take their rightful place as this genrations Tom & Alice! Especially as we approach the 50th anniversary! As fo… Read more »

Oh yeah, forgot about the Liam guy…. he would be great for Hope. Maybe end up doing a Romanesque twist with him that it’s Bo!! That Stefano found out what Bo was up to kidnapped him, brainwashed him, did plastic surgery and turned him into the new pawn 2014!!!

Again, I have too much time on my hands!!

Alison Sweeney announced on Ellen she is leaving too!! So long DOOL!! SAMI was the only core character with her interaction with th other characters keeping the show going! Has been a great 50 years but they will cancel soon after!!

Thank god Sweeney is leaving. Sami (and actress Sweeney) is the reason I’ve actually skipped episodes or FF the Tivo. Sami is a mess. She’s judgmental, meddlesome and a troublemaker — and not in a funny, lovable or loving way. Her (and Kate’s) current self-serving bullying of Gabi has me rooting for Nick. But the storyline is so full of repulsive characters that I have to admit to skipping much of it (Gabi is the only person I sympathize with. Even Will and Sonny are repulsive). Then there’s her repetitive droning about Kristin to EJ, bringing it up whenever they… Read more »

It’s nice to have Daniel join the cast of DOOL. I hope that he doesn’t close out this show too just like the other 3.
I think that he will end up with hope.

Oppenheim told PEOPLE: “Chrishell and I became close friends and it has developed into an amazing relationship. I care about her deeply and we are very happy together.”

Kelly Ripa’s First Book On the Way in 2022

Former All My Children star, now co-host of Live with Kelly and Ryan and a successful executive producer in her own right, Kelly Ripa, will add writer to her list of credits.

New this week is that Ripa is sharing a look at her real-life in a book, that will be released next spring in April of 2022.

According to the intel, the book entitled Live Wire will feature sharp, funny, and honest collection of real-life stories from Ripa, showing the many dimensions and crackling wit of the beloved daytime talk show host.

As soap fans know, Ripa has been married to Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC) and the two share three children together.

The loglines for the release share: “In Live Wire, Kelly shows what really makes her tick. As a professional, as a wife, as a daughter and as a mother, she brings a hard-earned wisdom and an eye for the absurdity of life to every minute of every day. It is her relatability in all of these roles that has earned her fans worldwide and millions of followers on social media. Whether recounting how she and Mark really met, the level of chauvinism she experienced on set, how Jersey Pride follows her wherever she goes, and many, many moments of utter mortification (whence she proves that you cannot, in fact, die of embarrassment) Kelly always tells it like it is. Ms. Ripa takes no prisoners.
Surprising, at times savage, a little shameless and always with humor… Live Wire shows Kelly as she really is offscreen—a very wise woman who has something to say.”

So intrigued to read Kelly’s book when it is released next year? Comment below.

All My Children Stars and Eileen Davidson On New Episode of Virtual Game Show “Soap Opera Know-It-All”

Imagine being in the hot seat and having some of your soap opera favorites trying to stump you with trivia, while trying to best your competition.  Well, that’s what four contestants faced as they battled it out in the ultimate soap trivia game, Soap Opera Know-It-All.

Later in the episode, there is a very special appearance by Eileen Davidson (Y&R, Ex-Days, Santa Barbara and B&B).  It is Eileen who reveals and asks the final question of the game to determine the eventual winner.

For this edition, host Michael Fairman welcomed longtime soap fans: Michael Cochran, Sean McKinley, and Robert Davis along with returning champion, David Bursky for this soap deep-dive competition.
