Former Days of our Lives star, Kyle Lowder (Ex-Brady) is now starring in brand new Dr. Pepper national spots! Lowder was chosen from 300 actors who auditioned for the part of ‘CraveRider’.

Just who is CraveRider? A souped-up Dr Pepper delivery guy, who steers his jet ski through people’s homes and other unexpected locations.  Oh, and he has long blonde locks ala pro wrestling’s legendary Ric Flair!

As why Lowder won the part …“He brought a certain vulnerability to what was a very physically demanding role,” says Deutsch agency’s creative director , Ryan Lehr to Ad Week. “Plus, Kyle’s an extremely charming and handsome guy. If someone had to ride into your living room and soak your carpet with Dr Pepper, you’d want it to be him.”

During the selection process, “the director had the actors use an office chair to simulate the vehicle in auditions, admittedly not the easiest thing to control,” Lehr says. “No brakes on those little wheels—so more than a few auditions ended with the actor spinning out of frame or crashing.”

Watch one of the new spots featuring Lowder as CraveRider after the jump! Then, let us know what you thought of Kyle and the concept in the comment section below!

I’m sure these commercials pay more than soaps, but c’mon man. Come back to soaps again, it’ll probably be hard to find work after this.

I’ll miss the Prince knockoff guy from the Dr. Pepper commercials though.

Speaking of “washed up”…..

The “Prince knockoff guy” in the Dr. Pepper commercials was Justin Guarini, the guy who came in second place to Kelly Clarkson in the first season of “American Idol.”

Back to Lowder, this really is sad. Not only is he having to resort to this type of stuff for work but he was NOT even a shoo-in for the job —– The article says he was one of THREE HUNDRED people who auditioned for the part.

If Lowder can’t find a more meaningful acting job than this, he seriously needs to think about a career change.

I’m sure he will take your all knowing criticism straight to the heart and decide to never act again. Because you told him to.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Sonny Goes Off On Scheming Gabi & This Week Maggie Remembers The Night Adrienne Was Killed

Things are definitely reaching a boiling point in Salem.  First, if you caught last Friday’s episode, it featured a terrific scene between Freddie Smith (Sonny) and Camila Banus (Gabi) that shook everyone to its core.   Gabi, who has now been arrested at the PCPD for her crimes against Julie and her schemes against Lani, gets a visit from Sonny, and boy is he angry.  At the time of their visit, Justin (Wally Kurth) has already told Sonny that he doubts there is any way that Gabi will avoid prison time.

Realizing that both Ari’s parents are looking like they will be in prison, he asks Gabi, “Who gets the fun job of explaining this to Ari?” Ari loves Julie. He exclaims,”How I am supposed to explain that her mother tried to kill her multiple times?”

Distraught and thus facing parenting alone, Sonny screams at Gabi if she even knows her daughter exists!?  Gabi thinks Sonny is being horrible to her, but stands by her actions that Julie needed to pay.  Sonny just shakes his head in disbelief.  Ari’s parents will both be in the slammer!  When DA James Giddens arrives (Terrell Tilford) he says that Gabi will get 10 years in prison with no time off for good behavior and no parole.   In these scenes. Smith and Banus really delivered the material and brought it to an emotional level that hit home to the viewers.

And now this week, get ready for more drama.  Gabi may get a last minute reprieve, while Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) is so close to remembering what happened the night of the accident that killed Adrienne (Judi Evans) – how she was drunk in a car that caused the crash – and the victim of this is not only Adrienne, but Will (Chandler Massey) who was sent to prison for a crime he did not commit.

DAYS Kate Mansi Learns The Ropes Of Directing A Multi-Cam Soap In New DOOL App Series

She has won a Daytime Emmy for her stellar performances as Abigail Deveraux, but now as many know, Kate Mansi has been spreading her wings as a director behind-the-camera.

Mansi follows on the heels of such fan favorite actresses as: Alison Sweeney (Sami, DAYS), Heather Tom (Katie, B&B), Cady McClain (Dixie and Rosanna Ex-AMC and ATWT) and Kimberly McCullough (Robin, GH) all who have eventually gone on to direct daytime and primetime episodes  of noted and successful series.

In the new DOOL app four-part series, From On-Stage to Behind-The-Scenes with Kate Mansi, the talented young actress learns the rigors and demands of working behind the camera in the fast world of daytime drama from Days of our Lives‘ director (and another Emmy winner) Sonia Blangiardo,who mentors Kate through the process.

The series talks about the current movement of having more female directors getting opportunities and be recognized for their work in film and TV, and the challenges a soap opera director faces every day: from dry block, where they work with the actors, working through their shot lists, and the ensuing problems that can arise in any production on the day to day.  But in soaps, the pressure is really on, because there is not much time to re-shoot things and to get them right.
