I don’t care if he’s good or bad, I just like watching him!!! 🙂

Celia

Not this girl, Lynn……unless he’s hot !! LOL. I do not like this actor. Just being honest.
Is he related to Arturo? I do not trust Arturo….maybe they are a team? Bad guys in good guys ‘masks’? Ha!

I think he is a Adam recast probably wrong

Celia

I don’t know, Kay….he is too ethnic looking to be Adam. But, one never knows…

Adam went from dark hair to being a blonde, then back to black. Simply amazing. So stupid. LOL.

Hi sweet Cee,
Completely agree… don’t like Arturo either
annoyed me from day one. Can’t believe Nicki had a fling w/ him yuck‼️

Celia
Guest
Celia

Hello, ma belle amie… I didn’t mind Arturo at first….Now? I can’t shake this feeling he’s up to something nefarious and this new guy ( not my kind of a hot, sexy male, LOL) is here to help him with whatever Arturo has planned. I CAN believe Nikki had a few rolls in the hay with him……Afterall, isn’t that her modus operandi? Fanny, my lady; I have been watching this soap since I was three or four….didn’t understand much, but when I was old enough to ken what was going on, Nikki has always been prone to ‘stray’. I wouldn’t… Read more »

Ma Cherie Cee, I’ve only been watching Y&R for 3 years this summer… still have a lot to catch-up on, having fun along the way. Faithfully watching GH for decades w/ the help of a FF button to filter out the nonsense, otherwise it’s been a decent RIDE full of greatness at times. Back in the DAY while following DOOL …during Bo & Hope’s reign, my sister & I took an over night “soap Cruise “ around Hudson island so we could meet Ari’s soap crush Drake H. We laughed until we cried & promised ourselves never to do a… Read more »

Chere Fanny, WOW!! That does sound like you had the time of your life….and with your sister!! I have three sisters, my lady……aren’t they the best?? Especially my twin….you know it’s true what they say? Yes, we finish each other’s sentences. LOL. Y&R has always been my favorite soap. Another World was a close second, with OLTL, AMC, and PASSIONS. The latter was a little ‘out there’, but so fun to watch….loved “Timmy”. We are having a very busy summer. I have a big family and we take our vacations together, most of the time……all the children drive us a… Read more »

I agree don’t like Arturo at all, I cringe when him and Abby kiss.
This new guy is very handsome. Who could he possibly be for. To old for Summer.

There is a shortage of men … Victoria, Sharon, Abby, and now Summer all need something fun in their lives…he would have made a great GH Dante!!

Celia

Dante would make much more sense, considering Sonny’s Hispanic heritage, Elite Advisors.

I just want someone for Sharon that will live her warts and all everybody deserves that ! Phyllis had done far worse things then Djaron but yet Nick forgives her so I hope she moves on

Celia
Guest
Celia

I love Sharon, Kay….always pulled for her and Nick.
Phyllis? Hmmmm…..had we been talking about Stafford, I would give you a different response because I am biased when it comes to her….I admit it.
But PhakePhyllis ain’t doing it right!!!!
She and Nick will hit the sheets, AGAIN…..sooo typical….over and over….
Maybe, Jordi will hook up with Sharon. She does deserve happiness….but, do it with aplomb….not rush into it.
Poor Sharon is destined to be standing under a perpetual dark cloud like Eeyore ( from Winnie the Pooh), LOL.
As Eeyore is wont to say, “Most likely lose it again, anyway”.

Harry
Guest
Harry

Victoria could use a love interes. I don’t think there’s a shortage of young men. You have Kyle and Ravi (whom you never see). I keep thinking Ravi and Summer would make a great pair–he could ground her, make her more of a visionary and less materialistic and shallow.

So sorry, but Jordi, is way much more man, than Lulu could ever handle.

I didn’t care for him on GL but sometimes a new character can change my mind. I just hope it’s not another man/boy toy in need of a razor who finds his way into Nikki’s clutches.

Celia

Ain’t that the truth, Soaphound.

Hopefully a bad guy. Loved him on Guiding Light.

I’m thinking he is for Victoria.

Bad guy with a heart of gold!
Please NOT an evil guy! Vic has that role covered.

I like this actor and hope Y&R has developed a strong character with a long-term story line so it is not a fly-by-night extended cameo appearance. Genoa City needs someone a good bad boy with sex appeal.

I really like this actor. I think he could easily be Arturo’s older brother. I do not understand why some keep saying Arturo is suspicious. He hasn’t done anything to warrant it. So what if he had a sex thing going with Nikki, they are both consenting adults.

The only beef that I have with this casting is that YR has a no raise policy. They need to get their budget under control first.

Lynn
Guest

I am thinking that perhaps he will play Adam, it says he is introduced as a mysterious stranger named Ray, I’m thinking Adam when ANOTHER new face due to the explosion. We need Adam to come back, the show needs the multi-dementional fabulous Adam! I held out hope for Michael Muhney, but it’s never gonna happen, and at this point they need to fill the void.

ramon carter
Guest

thats my thought adam with a new face who cares id he is ethic looking he could be adam and hook up with sharon

Frances Gruno
Guest
Frances Gruno

Now this is exciting. He would have made a great Adam Newman since it doesn’t look like the writers want to give M.M, (Michael Muhney) back to us fans.

Momo
Guest
Momo

No, he wouldn’t. Not exciting either.

Celia
Guest
Celia

I agree, Momo. Jordi was on DOOL, not too long ago.
You know how we either take to an actor or not? Well, something about him did not mesh with me. Unreasonable of me? Perhaps.
I will give him a chance. As Soaphound said, sometimes a new role shines a different light upon the ‘subject’, LOL.

Alan
Guest

I think Jordi will play a character with no established back story or pre-planned arc who floats through Genoa City looking for a storyline like the majority of the cast. When a show wastes the talents of Eileen Davidson for the better part of the last year while bringing on boring new characters like Arturo and Shauna it’s time for a new creative team…

Momo
Guest
Momo

Eileen didn’t have a storyline. Don’t know how she won an Emmy. Not saying she’s not talented, because she is.

I with Shauna would go too. Maybe now that Hilary is gone, she will. Arturo hasn’t really meshed either.

We have great actors already on the show who need story. Give them a story before adding more characters who will contribute nothing.

k/kay
Guest
k/kay

All the soaps are doing that just how it goes

Celia
Guest
Celia

I had not read this comment of yours, yet, Momo….weird how we both used the word ‘mesh’…..great minds….LOL.
If Shauna wouldn’t try so hard, she’d be much more effective ( not that I’m an expert), but when she scrunches up her face, constantly, it becomes annoying.
It’s like that is the only expression she has mastered….frozen in place. Was she brought as THE catalyst to expefite Hilary’s demise? Too bad!! What an awful ending for one of the best on daytime…..or primetime, if she wanted ….

Momo
Guest
Momo

🙂

I will miss Hilary/Mishael. Haven’t always liked Hilary, but she grew on me. Wonder what they’ll do with the GC Buzz.

The whole brother’s in rehab storyline doesn’t ring true. That’s part of my issue with Shauna, and then I think she’s more annoying than anything. And Hilary and Devon gave her way too much freedom. Going away for the weekend and letting her stay in the penthouse alone. Strange.

Celia
Guest
Celia

Shauna is fifteen? Knows too much, if you ask me. I wasn’t even allowed to date at that age…..and when I finally was, a year later, my sister and I HAD to double date. Never alone. Yes, the brother thing is sort of lame. But, you know, Momo….some parents truly are very lax with their teen kids in real life. But, I will bite my tongue. I don’t want to jinx myself….my children are nine ( in two and a half weeks) and four respectively. We try our best to keep things on an even keel….and, they do have some… Read more »

After today’s show please be for Sharon and Sharon kick that bastard out of your house that pompous horney ass! Nobody treats a person you love like this I hate what they have done with him but hey the actor got wanted he wanted! Newsflash Case has been carry your no talent behind for years

Disgusting of course she would do it anywhere I hate her character and I loathe nick two seconds and he has no regard for Sharon I am so very sorry I ever supported this couple ! Nick would screw a snake if it stood still long enough as bad as I hate Victor I hope he takes that kid to task he is not a man he is a spoiled child ! Everything he has Daddy gave him

Celia
Guest
Celia

Oh, Kay….even when upset, you are too funny. A snake? How? Where? But, yes….you are absolutely right. I cannot believe it!! I regret supporting the couple, as well. It seems Nick can’t keep it in his pants….same fallen hero? How many times can he do that? This development came out of nowhere….why is it with these writers? On all soaps? Can you imagine each time we have a disagreement with our mate, we go out and do it with someone else? What is that all about? Nick is not a man….no true man would do that. Spoiled brat, indeed!!

I missed it, dmr….I was en route for seven hours…..It was not recorded either. I have to go to my grandmother’s to watch it. I forgot to set my DVR.
Where did it happen? Summer’s penthouse? LOL.
I hope PhakePhyllis break an arm and a leg. Ha!

Hey c I can’t ever really support Sharon and Nick I wanted to but the writers when they lost Cassie losing a child and then screw on your wife when she needs you the most! That’s why I could never back Phyllis and Nick even when Stafford was in the role ! Stafford was at her best in the early nineties when Bill Bell was writing for the character well all of the characters were Paul had wonderful stories very sad ask your grandmother it was once a wonderful show you wanted to watch every day he created characters and… Read more »

When Bill Bell passed away the heart of the show died too Kay Alden and Sally were trying to bring it back but Sony threw them away makes you wonder if they want the show to die also

Kevin C

So totally agree 100% k/kay but I think the heart of the show died when they let Kay Alden and a lot of the behind the scenes staff go in 2006…I had high hopes with Sally and Kay but like you said, SONY/CBS blew it and it’s disgusting that they let this classic daytime drama that Bill Bell created go the direction it has…

Violet Lemm

Any kind of guy is OK with me.I especially liked him years ago on GL, AMC, and more recently DOOL, but not as much as the other two. I was thinking he might be related to Arturo.

Jordi Vilasuso’s character will be entangled in Black Horse and with Arturo,,
Nick will need all the help he can get because Victor will chew Nick up and spit him out.
Victor will regain his throne.

Jordi is a very good actor. I watched him on Guiding Light and am sure he’ll do a great job (whatever the role) on Y & R. Give him a chance to settle in. He won’t disappoint fans.

I am glad they are bringing Jordi to Y & R. I had hoped he would return to Days of our Lives.
