Kim Zimmer (Ex- Reva, GL & Echo, OLTL) who has been busy on the boards in the theatre,  is now set to for a terrific role in the highly touted independent feature film, 23 Blast!  Principal photography begins Monday in Corbin,  Kentucky!

The Daytime Emmy winner will play the on-screen mother to another daytime favorite, Mark Hapka (Ex-Nathan, DAYS) who plays the lead role in 23 Blast!  Zimmer plays the role of  Mary Freeman.

Toni Hoover and Bram Hoover wrote the 23 Blast  script, which follows a high school football star (Hapka) who’s suddenly stricken with irreversible blindness and the choice he’s forced to make regarding whether he should return to the sport.

Glee’s Max Adler will play another football player who’s initially unsupportive of his teammate but eventually comes around.  Many recall, Adler played the bully in the closet on the hit FOX show.

We think this film sounds extremely compelling, and look forward to its future! What do you think of Kim playing Mark’s mom? Let us know!

Another way to look at it is thanks to Echo messing with Charlie, we had the fun of watching Viki slap Echo after finding her with Charlie, Viki and Dorian team up against her, Sam as Spiderman rescue Dorian, Viki reunite with Clint, and together living happily ever after.

I love Kim, congrats and it does sound like a good movie! Kim will forever be Reva to me, not her other characters being not familiar with all of them. Nothing like when Reva Shayne blew into Springfield.

Kim is not the only one doing an independent film. The upcoming film ‘HELL AND MR. FUDGE’ stars John Wesley Shipp (GL/ATWT/SB/AMC/OLTL) and Eileen Davidson (Ashley, Y&R) as the parents of theologian Edward Fudge, played by Mackenzie Astin, the son of award winning actress Patty Duke (who played on the soap THE BRIGHTER DAY in 1958-59)

DAYS Brock Kelly and Y&R’s Donny Boaz Make Debuts: What Were Your First Impressions?

This week saw the arrival on the soap scene of two characters who look to figure heavily into story in the towns of Salem and Genoa City.  First, over at Days of our Lives during their first week of episodes with their time-jump, Brock Kelly appeared in his first scenes as Evan, the manny, to little David.

On DAYS, Evan looks to being taking an interest in a grieving and distraught Sonny (Freddie Smith), who is dealing with the anniversary of his mother’s death and that his husband, Will (Chandler Massey) is in prison for the crime that killed her (whatever that is has yet to be revealed).

For Brock Kelly this is not his first time on DAYS, having last been on the show back in 2005 as Abigail’s (then played by Ashley Benson) first boyfriend, Josh.

Over at Y&R, the much talked about Chance Chancellor finally arrived in Genoa City, and already had a confrontation with Cane (Daniel Goddard), helped save the day in a hostage crisis, and more.

Actor Donny Boaz has already mixed things up with many a resident of the town and shared scenes with Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mark Grossman (Adam), and more.  This is Boaz’s first daytime soap.  The last time Chance was in Genoa City he was played by John Driscoll.

Melissa Reeves Talks On DAYS Time-Jump; Paul Telfer & Eric Martsolf Chat Between Their Scenes On ‘Inside Salem’ Podcast

On the latest episode of NBC’s Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast, the special guest is enduring DAYS star, Melissa Reeves (Jennifer), who found herself as the catalyst for the year time-jump and flash-forward that fans are now watching play out on the daytime drama series.

Last week, Jennifer was pushed off a balcony following her wedding to Jack by Princess Gina.  And on last Friday’s cliffhanger, Jennifer woke up out of a coma to learn from Jack that she has been asleep for a year.

Now with a year having passed in Salem, Jennifer learns bits of information of what has happened to her loved ones.  Meanwhile, Eve is in lock-up for the crime against Jennifer, and it appears Jennifer cannot put the pieces together of who pushed her on that fateful night to clear Eve.

In addition during the podcast, Melissa chats with host Michael Fairman on the passing of John Clarke (Ex-Mickey), and being one of the core characters tied to the legacy of the Hortons – the first family of Salem.

As to the initial reaction to the time-jump, Melissa reveals that the entire cast was very excited, but all the pressure of the attention to detail was discussed with make-up, hair, and in the writing and production.

Reeves shares the entire DAYS team was up for the challenge. Melissa also reveals during the dramatic scenes where Jennifer’s family was acting emotional circles around her, that she fell asleep during her scenes while she was playing Jennifer in a coma.

Later, Paul Telfer and Eric Martsolf have a little hang out discussion in between scenes, that is often hilarious when you can imagine getting Xander and Brady, and their real-life portrayers, Paul and Eric, in the same room in front of a microphone.
