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 as Rafe’s Dad. However since the character has not yet been introduced I am not touching that. But I do hope that story is very successful.

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

I’m just making an educated guess.

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.

Yeah, 4ever, or in that infamous park or that 2 by 4 area called the Horton square

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!!!!!

CeeCee

@4ever.
That is good news. For once, I’d like to fix my eyes on some real background greenery and not the same park bench and foliage. LOL.

That sounds like a very interesting story line. I hope it goes the distance.

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 quite evident from your post that you are totally against anyone who is a tad off the beaten trail character-wise.

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 not repeat those thoughts in this post. Those who have read other posts by me already know my position and I dare not weary them or myself with it.

Nevertheless, you don’t have to take my word about the ratings. Go and see for yourself. I am well aware of what year we are living in. So are the people who did not watch Days because of the gay storyline. It didn’t seem to matter to them what year it is. Some people act on principles and not on what is trendy or politically correct. I happen to be one and so are the people who did NOT watch Days because of the gay storyline.

A long, lost Hernandez brother?

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!!! Chow!!!

@jimh.
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.

@Patrick.
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.

It’s so good to see you haven’t lost your sense of humor, Jimh. I love it, and you. Later, friend.

Yea!! I like the guy. Could be be recast for Rafe’s brother?

Will he be another brother ?

Brian

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.

Ghlover

He is the best! Greatbnews for Days! Hope he is paired with Theresa

Ray

Another excellent addition. I hope to see him paired with Nicole.

William

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!

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

Dario? or is he too old but hey they did age the kids…lol

Patrick
Patrick

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

Benigno
Benigno

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

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

Not really…Will was born before E.J.,—now E.J. is old enough to be Wills daddy…lol

I truly only know him from his stint on AMC… and wasn’t disappointed

the excitement and build IN Salem…. monumental… and lauded

Dario?

LOL a character he made up at home and forgot when he went to post…

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
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)

Patrick

Rafe is also getting a father?

A. Martinez?

Jeremy

I wonder if Ari will be aged and all of a sudden be 35? hahahaha

CeeCee

Yeah, poor Rafe is trying so hard to be stoic….not licking his wounds be so obvious. But, he’s drooling over Hope! I just don’t get it!!??

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.”

Michael (not Fairman)
Michael (not Fairman)

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 result.

I give Mr. Vilasuso props. He is in the minority among young soap actors who actually used their time on the soaps to grow as actors. So many of them remain no better when they leave than when they started, but by the time JV got his Emmy, I thought he deserved it.

Glad to see him back on soaps.

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.

Mo

Not loving it.

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.

‘The Masked Singer’ Runner-up, Ex- AMC’s Jesse McCartney, Recalls Working With David Canary

If you caught the finale of The Masked Singer this week, you know that “The Turtle” was revealed to be none other than former All My Children star and recording artist, Jesse McCartney.

While McCartney came in as the runner-up, losing out to Kandi Burress, he spoke to Digital Journal about his latest single, “Friends’ and recalled his time working with the one and only David Canary (Ex-Stuart/Adam) on the now defunct ABC daytime drama series.

As a young JR Chandler from 1998-2001, that put him sharing on-screen time with Canary, who played his father.  Jesse remembers all of the lines of dialogue thrown at him at a young age was not fun.

When speaking of his time with Canary, McCartney shared: “He was one of the sweetest guys on the planet and he was such a kind soul. He played my father, Adam Chandler, and not only was he the star of the show but he played his own twin brother, Stuart. He had double the lines of any character on the show, and in my three years on the show, he never messed up a line even once. There was a time when David helped me when I was having a moment and I struggled with remembering my lines, so as a result, the soap world for me is very sentimental.”
