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.

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.

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 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

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.

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

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!!

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.

Eva LaRue Reveals COVID-19 Diagnosis

During former All My Children, B&B and GH star, Jacob Young’s podcast, Real Conversations with Jacob Young, he welcomed his good friend and former Pine Valley cast mate, Eva LaRue (Ex-Maria, AMC, and Celeste, Y&R).

At the very top of the episode, LaRue revealed she and her daughter Kaya tested positive for Covid-19.  She shared, “We thought we had dodged a bullet, but sure enough, on New Year’s Eve, we both tested positive.”

“Oddly enough,” she goes on to say, “I really feel like we’ve been so sick of being scared to death of the invisible monster underneath the bed all last year, always looking over our shoulders.”  Eva added, “Nobody knows which one they are. Are they someone who’s going to survive it or succumb to it? Or have residual effects? All we can do is pray for the best.”

 

However, LaRue has been trying alternative methods of helping her with Covid-19 via IV treatments.  “I’ve got this amazing integrative doctor who I’ve been working with for a long time, and I know a lot of people are like, ‘No, we only do Western medicine,’ and that’s fine, I love Western medicine… but integrated medicine and Western medicine have to go hand in hand, in my opinion. Because, I just feel like, we need to open our minds to what is new and what is out there.”   So because of that, Eva has chosen to receive these treatments to hopefully starve off any long term effects of Covid.

In addition, Eva told Young she has hopes for the new primetime All My Children reboot that is in the works:  “I have my fingers crossed that they’ll be doing something with this new Pine Valley show.”   Remember, the Santos family and the Kanes are said to be the epicenter of the revival, so perhaps LaRue will be a guest-star on it, since she is also close friends with two of the EP’s, Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley, AMC) and Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC)!

Send your well-wishes to Eva and her daughter, Kaya and let us know would you love to see LaRue on the ‘Pine Valley’ primetime reboot?  Comment below.

All My Children Primetime Reboot “Pine Valley” in the Works at ABC from Kelly Ripa & Mark Consuelos and Andrew Stearn

Huge news that could bring back a new updated version of daytime’s All My Children to primetime!

ABC is eyeing a revival of Agnes Nixon’s long-running beloved series that ran for 41 years on the network and then saw an online reboot from Prospect Park that lasted only one season.

According to Deadline, former AMC stars Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley) and Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo) will executive produce along with Andrew Stearn and Agnes Nixon’s son, Robert Nixon.

 

The series is currently in the early stages of development, but what has been revealed is: the reboot will be written/executive produced by Leo Richardson (Katy Keene, Star), and it will center on a young journalist with a secret agenda who comes to expose the dark and murderous history of a town named Pine Valley only to become entangled in a feud between the Kane and Santos families. The series explores all the secrets that come with the Kane and Santos family names.

In the new incarnation, Pine Valley, will feature a new generation of characters and some old favorites.  As of this moment, no original cast members have deals, but the plan would be to have them make appearances, plus Ripa and Consuelos could also make a cameo.  Of course, many are already pondering if Susan Lucci (Erica Kane) might actually be a mainstay on the new primetime series; since the Kanes are one of the core families in the reboot.

Pine Valley plans to continue the original series’ tradition of tackling difficult social issues of our time and being inclusive, which the show was known for under the iconic Agnes Nixon’s storytelling.

Of note is that Stearn is also a lifelong fan of AMC and has been the driving force behind the reboot.  In fact when he was deciding between ABC Signature and one other studio for an overall deal, he chose ABC Signature because it was going to allow him to pursue his dream of rebooting All My Children.  It was then he started tracking down the rights to the soap.  As soap fans know, the rights to AMC reverted back to ABC after Prospect Park’s online version fell apart.

Later, after meeting with a number of writers to helm Pine Valley, Stearn went with Richardson, who had worked on the British soap EastEnders in his native Britain. Stearn also got on board the estate of Agnes Nixon, with son Robert Nixon joining the project as an executive producer.

So what do you think of “Pine Valley”, the All My Children primetime reboot being in development?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
