After all the murmurs, the rumors, and the buzz of Serial Scoop’s recent blind item where they indicated that: A former Daytime Emmy winner from a P&G soap opera that has since appeared in primetime, an ABC/Prospect Park soap, and, recently, a Hulu series was joining the cast of Days of our Lives, the soap site revealed the actor’s identity today.

Fan favorite Jordi Vilasuso (as many had guessed) has joined the NBC soap opera in a character that is described to have a connection with Galen Gering’s Rafe Hernandez!

Jordi has most recently appeared in the Hulu series South Beach, and won a Daytime Emmy while on Guiding Light in the role of Tony Santos.  He has appeared as Dr. Griffin Castillo in both the ABC and online versions of All My Children, and appeared in the primetime soap Fashion House.  There has been no official confirmation from Days of our Lives on this casting news, or even a first airdate.

What do you think of Jordi coming to DAYS?  Who will he play in Salem?  Share your thoughts below!

I’m not familiar with this actor, but if his character is supposed to have a connection to Rafe then I’m guessing a brother or cousin.

On Guiding Light he was paired with Michelle Bauer who was portrayed by Rebecca Budig now on GH..Bethany Joy Lenz who went on to play Hayley James on One Tree Hill..amongst others who portrayed the role..Tony Santos mama was one vicious Mob boss and that lifestyle led to his death on the show.

Jordi is Rafe’s brother Dario.

I thought the same thing, they will be brothers.

Are you guessing or do you know for sure that Dario is returning to Salem? I hope you are correct about the character being Dario. I enjoyed the character of Dario the last time around. His return to Salem would be a boost to the character of Rafe because Rafe’s life in Salem would be fuller! I think the writers made a mistake by separating Rafe and Jordan. That was a good match. Rafe needed to move on from Sami. So bringing back Dario will be good for Rafe. I am aware that A. Martinez has been brought to Salem… Read more »

If Dario is being recast that would be great. I’d love to see Rafe have more family interactions in Salem.

I think he’ll play Rafe’s brother and Paul’s new love interest. He and Paul will meet at a Basic Black fashion show.

Good news, CeeCee… DAYS has been filming/taping on location! I’m sorry I don’t have the sources or links, but I do know they are reliable. I also saw an interview with Kristian Alfonso (Hope) who confirmed it’s true.

Like I’ve been saying…DAYS means business. They’re fighting hard!!!!!

If the brother of Rafe that you are referring to is Dario, he is neither gay or bisexual. At least he wasn’t the first time around in Salem. I hope Days is through with the gay storyline. It helped the ratings to decline drastically. So they ought to leave that alone!!

By the way did you hear how The Bold and the Beautiful too a ratings hit during the week of the wedding of the transgender character? Time to wake up and smell the coffee! The LGBT stories are bad for ratings.

I beg to differ – the storyline between Will and Sonny was hardly a ratings killer, if anything it helped to draw in New viewers. Obviously, at the risk of sounding offensive, you just don’t want any storylines involving gay characters – but, this is 2015 this isn’t 1985 and times have changed. Sonny may be off the canvas for the time being, but the character will return, but what the ultimate fate shall be between he and Will remains to be seen. Paul is also a gay character, would you like to see him go as well – it’s… Read more »

It is a fact that during the weeks when the gay storyline on Days was front and center, the ratings were at their lowest. Check it out. The numbers do not lie. I believe that is a major reason for the change in head writers on Days. Ken Corday had to do something before he lost the show altogether. For the record, I have made no secret of the fact that I am not in favor of a gay storyline on Days. So many of my previous posts on this website have reflected my thoughts about it that I will… Read more »

There you are…havent read your comments for some time…he could be Paige’s PawPaw but the actor himself is like 35 which means he is either going to play older or he got Eve prego when he was only 15…lol…Days sure has improved…i like it so much better than GH now which i rarely watch…hope new writers improve things real soon over there!!!

Hi, Jimh. Yeah,I’m here, my friend. I took off to parts unknown for a few weeks…LOL.
And, there you are setting me straight. I guess this mystery guy is too young to be Eve’s ex.
Yes, I am really getting into DOOL, again….I especially appreciate Chad getting a challenging and interesting storyline. Also waiting for Clyde to head for the gallows……with Ben in tow.
I always had a creepy feeling about Aidan, too. Later.

Thank you, my friend. We did a lot of cruising on the high seas. LOL…..with my five siblings and respective families. I would love to go to Egypt, we were within reach, but too much turmoil in those waters and neighboring countries. Perhaps, one day!
I see that your favorite soap, DOOL, is regaining foothold. You must be so overjoyed. I am loving it, myself, right now. Later.

I was hoping he would be Dario (his brother) but it sounds like maybe just an old buddy. I love Jordi and he needs to be on a soap so I hope they make it work and make his character a good one.

I’ll be really upset if they have used him to recast Dario, Rafe’s younger brother. I really loved Francisco San Martin and I still wish they had kept his character as he was the only Hernandez sibling I ever liked.

Great news! Days has been excellent & Jordi will fit in just fine….I look forward to seeing him in Salem. He has been awesome in Hulu’s South Beach & I always liked him on #AMC. He’s also a really nice guy. Congrats to Jordi on his new role!

if this is the “big” surprise…. i’m a little deflated…. OK… hold that thought

LOL : where is my Susan Flannery and/or Jamie Lyn Bauer ?

I already like the ideas !

1. Paul nuLOVE
2. Theresa nuLOVE
3. Eve; ex-husband

could be any one of these three…. i’m partial to him being paired with #1 or #3. Just to get Eve out of Jennifer orbit

Xander : i’m going to prop, laud, and applause, how magnifying his ACTING skill reels

That would mean aging the rest of the young adult set as well since Dario is originally from that age-range.

Well whoever he is it is just good to see poor Rafe get some family or friends back into his life– he has been floating around town solo for so long–I still think they should bring his mother into the show– a strict Catholic having a granddaughter being raised by a gay man would throw some reality into that story line- because lets face facts a lot of gay couples out there with children aren’t always embraced by their own families or the community around them– it would be a realistic story to tell.

Patrick

yeah, I don’t know what was worse …. ? !

Rafe or Nicole doing solo

LOL

I think Nicole wins that by a long shot… and continues to…. yeah, even if she’s stuck with Daniel and Parker

Rafe’alicious gets a brother… and Gabs is on the horizon… with her daughter.

Galen Gerring…. doesn’t let up… just smitten(s)

One of Guiding Light’s most disastrous recasts was Tony Santos after Jordi left that show. He’s a breath of fresh air and will bring good things to “Days.”

I didn’t think Stephen Martines was the problem; it was more the way the show decided to rewrite the character of Tony to fit their new plans (that was Conboy and Weston, who did very little right on GL anyway, though the Ellen Wheeler storyline putting Tony in a triangle with Danny and Michelle was also a loser). One of the endearing things about Tony was an underlying sweetness that the character had when JV was playing him, which gave the character some dimension. That was totally gone in the second incarnation, and Tony was far less interesting as a… Read more »

Jordi had auditioned previously for Will Horton, but turned down the roll. I seriously doubt he will be involved with Paul. Maybe tied with Bo, ISA, or Ava. For those who don’t know who he is, He is the brother in law to Bailey Madison. His wife Kaitlin is such a sweet person. I can’t wait to see him on DOOL.

He was excellent on the ABC-TV version of ALL MY CHILDREN but was hardly utilized at all on Prospect Park’s butchered on-line version – I am sure he will do a very professional job – he looks like he could be Rafe’s cousin or brother.

This is a great casting addition! Jordi was awesome on AMC; didn’t watch him on GL but I’ve heard great things. Hopefully he will be a recast Dario, and not just a random new character.

If they truly want to bring the Hernandez family back to the forefront, I hope they bring Arianna back from the dead. Lindsay Hartley is very talented, and killing the character off was a huge mistake.

Will AMC Favorite Josh Duhamel Replace Armie Hammer in JLo’s Film, ‘Shotgun Wedding’?

After a controversial few weeks, which saw Armie Hammer exit his leading role opposite Jennifer Lopez in Liongate’s upcoming romantic-comedy/adventure film Shotgun Wedding, it appears the motion picture has found its replacement if the ink is signed.

Former All My Children and Daytime Emmy winner Josh Duhamel (Ex-Leo) has been picked as Hammer’s replacement.

The film tells the story of a couple that gathers their families for a destination wedding even as they get cold feet. If that wasn’t enough, the entire party then gets taken hostage.

Lopez and Hammer were headed for the film shoot in the Dominican Republic when salacious DM’s rumored to be attributed to  Hammer came to light on social media and derailed the films for now.  However, if Duhamel signs on to the film, they could can retain its start date in February

Hammer had responded to the allegations against him and the DM’s by sharing: “I’m not responding to these bullshit claims but in light of the vicious and spurious online attacks against me, I cannot in good conscience now leave my children for 4 months to shoot a film in the Dominican Republic,”

A Lionsgate spokesperson  also responded to Hammer and his exit sharing: “Given the imminent start date of Shotgun Wedding, Armie has requested to step away from the film, and we support him in his decision.”

The Hollywood Reporter first broke the casting news update.

So what do you think of Duhamel as Hammer’s replacement to play opposite JLO? Comment below.

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.
