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”

What did you think of Vincent’s message? Excited to see the actor who has wowed audiences on Guiding Light, Santa Barbara, The Young and the Restless, and All My Children shake up Salem?  Comment below!

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!

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.
