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 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

Patrick

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.

All My Children and ‘The Bay’ Star Eric Nelsen in the Cast of ‘Yellowstone’ Prequel ‘1883’

On Thursday, the full cast was announced for the highly-anticipated Yellowstone prequel that will bow on Paramount+ beginning on December 19th.

The Taylor Sheridan drama tells the tale of the Dutton family as they embark on a journey west through the Great Plains toward the last bastion of untamed America. It is a stark retelling of Western expansion, and an intense study of one family fleeing poverty to seek a better future in America’s promised land — Montana.

According to Deadline, in the cast is none other than The Bay’s Daytime Emmy-winner, Eric Nelsen (Daniel Garrett), who was also part of the cast of Prospect Park’s reboot of All My Children as AJ Chandler.

In 1883, look for Nelsen to take on the role of Ennis, a young, handsome cowboy who agrees to help escort a group of inexperienced men, women and children north to find a home.

The series also stars: Billy Bob Thornton, Faith Hill, Gratiela Brancusi, Sam Elliott, Stephanie Nur, and Tim McGraw to name but a few.

So, will you be checking out Eric in 1883? Comment below.

Mark Consuelos Exits ‘Riverdale’

Last night, All My Children alum, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo Santos) made what appears to be his final appearance for now on CW’s soapy drama, Riverdale.

Consuelos departed Riverdale as a series regular on the season 5 finale, after coming on to the show in its second season in the role of villain, Hiram Lodge.

Riverdale executive producer and showrunner, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, shared with Deadline a statement on Consuelos contribution and run on the series: “From the moment Mark joined us, he was up for literally anything, a hundred percent committed to making Archie’s life a living hell. And what’s funny is, Mark couldn’t be more different from Hiram. A classy pro and the sweetest guy, always looking out for everyone. We wish Mark the best and hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Hiram Lodge.

Consuelos offered up these sentiments in a statement on his Riverdale exit: “First and foremost, I would like to thank Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa for this incredible opportunity. Never before has playing a character that was so bad, felt so good. Huge thanks to the Riverdale fandom, to the brilliant crew and amazing cast, whom I consider dear friends and family.”

So, will you miss seeing Mark on Riverdale? Elsewhere, still no word on the “Pine Valley” reboot in which Mark and wife, Kelly Ripa, are two of the executive producers of that many All My Children fans were hoping would come to fruition. Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
