Congrats, Jake! This is absolutely amazing.

This play is a must see for me because Jake Silbermann in a play with vampires is just my kind of play! Can’t wait to see him live on stage. It will be epic.

Congratulations Jake. Obviously the rest of New York and the country (thanks to STUFFER) will finally get to see what we already know . . . you’re a really, really talented person and you deserve every single great thing that’s happening to you.

Go Jake! So happy to see him already being immensely successful like we fans always knew he would. Haters to the left! Really hoping to see this…. Coming up all the way from WA, so he better appreciate it. 😉

I’m happy for Jake even though i always was a LuRe fan.But he’s a good guy and is deserving .Now if i know for sure that Van Hansis will go to see this play because they are friends , I’ll go.I like Jake but my heart will always belong to Van!

If Van goes I’m sure he’ll want the attention on Jake. They’re good friends, so they kinda like to support each other. And Van’s in LA now, so…

Since when did this become about Van or LuRe? I can care less if you are a LuRe fan, but what that has to do with Jake? Jake is not a part of ATWT anymore and neither is LuRe. I love Van to pieces and I am looking forward to his film but this play has nothing to do with Van. I am sure Van will support Jake. Why do people have to remind everyone that they like Van better than Jake? Jake got an awesome part for God sake. Just be happy for him and be done with it. Nobody will take your big Van/LuRe fan sticker away. Anyways why would you go to a play just to see one of the featured actors friends?

I do like Jake and am happy for him.I must admit after i read my words they didn’t sound right even to me! It will take a while to separate these actors from ATWT, but we long time fans are doing it slowly but surely!

Seems like Jake should take your advice, considering he hijacked Van’s radio interview last week to promote himself.

@Connie

If Van had any problems with Jake calling in or what not he would have told him so by probably saying I’ll talk to ya later. However, he didn’t cut Jake off but instead they got caught up since it had been awhile since they had talked. Also Jake didn’t promote himself since I seem to remember that it was Van who asked Jake about the play. So what was Jake supposed to do not answer Van’s question. So I really don’t understand what your problem is with Jake because I doubt he’s done anything to you.

I saw Jake on a we love soaps interview.I was impressed with him as himself.He’s very attractive and personable and has a lovely sense of humor.i’m glad I got to see him as himself because i never liked the character of Noah! he seems so excited with his film and his future!

Emmy Winner and Noted Soap Opera Head Writer; Hogan Sheffer Passes Away At 61

Over the last several hours, reports have broke that one of daytime’s most notable scribes has died.  Hogan Sheffer, who was head writer at As the World Turns, Days of our Lives and The Young and the Restless has passed away at the age of 61.

Soap Hub, first reported the news via multiple sources, however, many writers who worked with Hogan during his tenure on the soaps have taken to social media to share their condolences and their grief and remembrances.

Sheffer’s appearance on the soap scene was unexpected, especially in a genre where it is often rare for new blood to take the reins at the head writer position.  Proctor & Gamble had decided to bring in Hogan after his work as the Director of Screenplay Development for DreamWorks, not because of his writing credits for a previous network soap.  He was given trial deal as a breakdown writer for the CBS soap and 10-weeks in became the beloved town of Oakdale’s new head writer.

Hogan and his then writing team were able to turn the classic, As the World Turns around.  The show went up in the ratings and during his time with the series ‘World Turn’s’ won two Daytime Emmys for Outstanding Drama Series, and he and the writing team picked up four Emmy victories all through 2000-2004.

Next, Sheffer landed in Salem as head writer of Days of our Lives along with Meg Kelly from 2006 through to the beginning of 2008.   He would later join The Young and the Restless and team up with then head writers: Maria Arena Bell and Scott Hamner, and eventually stay with the show till 2012.  During Sheffer’s time in Genoa City, Y&R also won a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Writing in 2011.

On Sunday, former WWE and daytime writer Tom Casiello, who was extremely close with Sheffer…  and who shared how Hogan gave him his start at writing in daytime, took to his Facebook page to pay tribute to a man who had such an impact on his life and many others.  It is worth the read here. 

Y&R writer, Sara Bibel tweeted: “Hogan Sheffer was a gamechanger for ATWT and daytime. Everyone I know who worked with him adored him. RIP”

And, iconic ATWT star, Martha Byrne (Ex-Lily) tweeted on Sheffer’s passing: “To say he was one of a kind would be a tremendous understatement. Our years at ATWT with Hogan at the helm were a rebirth for our beautiful show. Loved his writers, actors,crew. Blessed to have him on the first floor in Brooklyn ready to listen. Talented. Funny. Generous. RIP”

Colleen Zenk (Ex-Barbara, ATWT) also took to Twitter upon learning of the passing of Sheffer sharing: “I loved him, loved him, loved him… he was so good to me. Thank you for everything, Hogan. You were so loved. Especially, by me… Rest in peace…”

Michael Fairman TV will continue to bring you updates as the soap world mourns the loss of a creative force in our genre.  Share your condolences and thoughts on the death of Hogan Sheffer via the comment section below.
