The secret is out, confirmed, and now the next step is for fans of NBC’s Days of our Lives to get their first look at Daytime Emmy winner, and soap vet Vincent Irizarry in his new role as Deimos on the daytime drama series come mid-January!

After having to hold the big news for over a month, Irizarry took to his facebook page to relate his thanks and support to his long time fans and supporters who have continually rallied for this talented acting gem.

Vincent posted: “Finally!!! I’m able to share with all of you what I’ve been excitedly holding in for over a month now, that I’ve joined all the incredibly talented people in Salem over at Days of our Lives!! I honestly couldn’t be happier to be working with such wonderfully gifted people, all of whom who have been so warm and welcoming. I’m equally thrilled to be playing a character I’ve already loved playing these past weeks, with scripts that have been so wonderful, I’m excited each time I open a new one to find out what the writers have in store for me next, and alongside actors I have so much respect for. What a true, absolute pleasure it’s all been!!! Thank you so much, all of you, for your tireless support of me and my work throughout all these years together. I’m truly, truly touched by the overwhelming expressions of kind thoughts and well wishes by so many of you throughout all the social media outlets. As it has been throughout so many times in my life working on shows such as this, because of you all, my cup truly runneth over… Can’t wait to see you all in Salem!!! ‪#‎DaysOfOurLives‬”

DAYS is really on fire. Please do not drop the ball, DAYS team, with too much stunt casting or lack of solid stories involving core families and histories. DAYS remembers the humanity better than the others. I like Salem more because it reminds me more of the lost ATWT and AMC.

Congrats to Vincent Irizarry. I am not familiar with his work because I didn’t watch those other soaps during his time there. But I wish him well in Salem!

I have missed Vincent Irizarry for years from AMC. I’m so glad he’s coming back to us on this show. I just hope they don’t hook him up with Sami. (I know, broken record: I really don’t like that train wreck of self-centeredness and destruction, Just my opinion and fear.) But I’ll be so glad to see him!!

I can see them putting him with Eve or Jennifer maybe. Vincent has chemistry with almost everyone. He and Finola Hughes were my favorite until Lindsay Hartley joined AMC and became Cara Castillo. I so wish that they had not killed off Arianna!

I can’t wait to see him share scenes with Judi Evans since I was a huge Lujack and Beth fan when he and Judi were on Guiding Light

They’re really getting a lot of great actors. The downside is we have to wait another 6 months before we see him onscreen!

When Prospect Park’s poor attempt at reviving ALL MY CHILDREN On-line failed, I felt badly for actors who were misled and left in the lurch, including Vincent in his role of a calculating Doctor. I am glad to see that he has been picked up by DOOL, I knew it would just be a matter of time before someone snatched him up –
he will be a welcomed addition to Days.

He is a wonderful actor and I hope they won’t cast him as a villain no one will like. Although he can handle any role they give him.

I am SO looking forward to his arrival. He has really been missed in daytime.

If there is one other actress I would like to see join the show, it is Colleen Zenk. I think she is a powerhouse, stunning woman.

Not a Days fan but I am a big fan of V.I. I never understood why he was not picked up earlier. I wanted him to go to Y&R. I have gotten bored with Y&R and no longer watch. I am enjoying Dynasty and The Doctors reruns. I never watched those two soaps so I am having a lot of fun watching them. I am still missing AMC and wish it would come back with Vincent!

All My Children Alum Ben Jörgensen Reportedly Dead At 51

According to his former All My Children castmate, Brian Gaskill. there is sad news in the soap world today.  Ben Jörgensen who played Kevin on All My Children and Chris on As the World Turns passed away on Tuesday at the age of 51, apparently via suicide, although unconfirmed as to his cause of death.

Gaskill, who played Bobby Warner while in Pine Valley shared via his Instagram:  “Sad news to report. Ben Jörgensen who played Kevin Sheffield on All My Children has past away at 51 years old.  My understanding is it was suicide.  I have heard he suffered from Bipolar disorder but as I have not spoke to him in years I do not know all the details. I just want to remember the good times we had on the set of All My Children 24 years ago. He was a good guy and had the courage to play a gay teenager on tv back when it was nowhere near as common to have representation as it is today. He was part of an award winning storyline…but mostly we just had some good times back then…my condolences go out to his friends and family. Please everybody hang in there and reach out for help if you need it. ”

Since the time of Brian’s posting, friends, colleagues and fans have been posting tributes and condolences on the actor’s Facebook page.  You can view that here.

 

In this heartbreaking photo below from Steven Bergman, during his time on As the World Turns, Ben is pictured with the late Nathaniel Marston, as well as Jaime Nicole Dudney and Terri Conn.

On All My Children, Ben was part of the important social issue storyline brought into the ABC legacy soap opera by the iconic Agnes Nixon, who was always trying to move the needle forward in daytime, as the character of Kevin was a gay high school student facing bullying, ridicule and discrimination for his sexuality.

Michael B. Jordan Pays Tribute To Chadwick Boseman: “Since Nearly The Beginning Of My Career, Starting with All My Children When I was 16 Years Old You Paved The Way For Me”

Following the news of the tragic death of now motion picture icon, Chadwick Boseman late Friday, tributes and sentiments have poured in from celebrities, politicians and fans from all across the world.

Chadwick Boseman passed away late last week at the age of 43 from colon cancer – a battle he kept silent about for the last four years of life.

No one could be more intertwined with Boseman’s career than that of his fellow Black Panther star, Michael B. Jordan.  For Jordan took over the role of Reggie Porter on All My Children from Boseman after the late actor lasted one week, following standing up to, and addressing concerns, of racial stereotypes in the way that the part was written.  Reggie was introduced to Pine Valley as a gang member in 2003.  As previously reported it was Boseman who helped the soap opera improve the role that Jordan took over with some recommendations.

Now Michael B. Jordan has written a heartfelt remembrance of Chadwick that he shared on his Instagram, and what he has meant to his life, including how he showed him how to be better, to honor purpose and create legacy.

Read below Michael’s post:

“I’ve been trying to find the words, but nothing comes close to how I feel. I’ve been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug…everything.

I wish we had more time.

One of the last times we spoke, you said we were forever linked , and now the truth of that means more to me than ever. Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old you paved the way for me. You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not…I’ve been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness.

I wish we had more time.

Everything you’ve given the world … the legends and heroes that you’ve shown us we are … will live on forever. But the thing that hurts the most is that I now understand how much of a legend and hero YOU are. Through it all, you never lost sight of what you loved most. You cared about your family , your friends, your craft, your spirit. You cared about the kids, the community, our culture and humanity. You cared about me. You are my big brother, but I never fully got a chance to tell you, or to truly give you your flowers while you were here.

I wish we had more time.

I’m more aware now than ever that time is short with people we love and admire. I’m gonna miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor, and incredible gifts. I’ll miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes. I’m dedicating the rest of my days to live the way you did. With grace, courage, and no regrets. “Is this your king!?” Yes . he . is!  Rest In Power Brother.”

What do you think of Michael’s tribute to Chadwick and how they have been interconnected dating back to 2003 and All My Children? Comment below.
