New ‘This Is Us’ Cast Member Blake Stadnik Performed Song ‘Memorized’ Goes Up The Charts After Season Premiere

Last week, This Is Us gave us a dazzling season four opener, which introduced the audience to several new characters … and in true ‘This Is Us’ fashion, viewers did not know how these new additions to the cast would tie-in to the core members of the Pearson family; whether it be in a flashback, in current times, or their flash-forwards.

So with that, fans of the NBC drama were introduced to a character who was a blind young man – who turns out to be a musician – who winds up being Kate and Toby’s blind son all-grown up. That part is being played by Blake Stadnik.

At the end of premiere adult Jack (Stadnik) performs the song “Memorized” in front of thousands at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles that is the emotional highpoint of the episode.  Fast-forward and the song began charting.. and last week entered the Top 20 in the U.S. iTunes store.  As of Monday September 30th, it was at #42 on the iTunes Hot 100 songs chart.

“Memorized was co-written by Siddhartha Khosla and Taylor Goldsmith,  and sung by Stadnik.

This Is Us series creator, Dan Fogelman said of the choice of Stadnik for the role of adult Jack: “He’s a trained actor and done a lot of musical theater and can sing, which was another massive quality that made the search impossible.  We wanted to find an actor who could be a leading man, and very handsome and very funny, with his bare ass on national television — but also be able to go stand in the Greek in front of a live audience and actually perform and sing a song. And so there were a lot of boxes to check.”

After the episode aired, Stadnik took to his Instagram to share his first public photo with his on-screen parents: Chris Sullivan and Chrissy Metz stating: “A little family photo.  Endless thanks to these two wonderful people and everyone at @nbcthisisus who welcomed me to the family! #thisisus #jackdamon”

Now below listen to “Memorized” one more time … and let us know if you are loving Blake as much as we are as a key addition to This Is Us via the comment section below.

Absolutely brilliant. Throughout the episode I tried to finger out how each of the new people fit with the Pearsons. I was overjoyed when I learned this is preemie baby Jack all grown up. I worried about that baby all summer. Just because he made it home from the NICU didn’t mean he was out of the woods. I’m so happy he survives into the future.

I am very impressed with Blake Stadnik and wish him great success with this part and his career.

In the real life story, the remains of the women were uncovered accidentally as police searched for Shannan, who went missing after visiting a client, whom she met on Craigslist, in the gated community of Oak Beach on Long Island, and then fleeing the man’s home.   However, police believe that Mari’s unwavering fight to find her daughter which led to finding the other women is not how Shannan ultimately disappeared.

While the case has yet to be solved the film shares, “Though the search for the serial killer is still ongoing, Mari’s passionate dedication to giving her daughter and other forgotten women a voice, and the attention they deserve, has kept the case alive with hopes of a breakthrough soon.”

PEOPLE exclusively dropped the trailer over the weekend.  Make sure to check it out.

Once the trailer was released, Delaney shared on her Twitter account: “Amazing director @StanleyMBrooks Thank you so much, Stan!Very special producers, cast and crew. An important story!”

Mark Consuelos on the All My Children Primetime Reboot: “I Know They’re Going to Bring Back Some Fan Favorites”

On Friday, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC) was a guest on the CBS afternoon series, The Talk, where he shared his excitement and some insight into the upcoming All My Children primetime reboot, Pine Valley, in development at ABC..

As previously reported, Mark and his wife Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley, AMC) are two of the executive producers on the project.

Consuelos shared on the reboot:All My Children was such a big part of my life and my wife’s life. And you know, I met my wife there obviously, had kids, became a young man on that show, and we got the opportunity to reboot the primetime version and the idea was brought to us, and we’re so excited.  Of all the things that we’ve ever announced that we’re going to do, this is one of the biggest responses we’ve got from our fans. They’re so excited.  It’s a big piece of TV that’s been missing for such a long time, and we’re going to bring it back.”

When avid soap fan and The Talk co-host, Sheryl Underwood, posed a major question to Consuelos that has been on longtime All My Children fans minds, she got a solid response from him.

Sheryl was trying to get some tea on who might appear in the reboot, when she asked, “Is it going to be the Cortlandts and the Warners? Is it going to be everybody?” Consuelos then responded with: “I know they’re going to bring back some fan favorites, and it will take place in Pine Valley, and I’m really, really excited.”

Lexi Ainsworth Teases Her Return to General Hospital

With her father Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) presumed dead (although viewers know he is very much alive with amnesia), it looks like Kristina is on her way back to Port Charles – which would be a welcome return to the role for Daytime Emmy winner Lexi Ainsworth.

Rumors began circulating on Inauguration day Wednesday, when Ainsworth shared a pic on her Instagram Story of her watching the ceremonies from a dressing room at Prospect Studios in Los Angeles, where GH is taped.

Later, after reports had surfaced on social media that Ainsworth might be returning to her signature role, the actress shared some of those on her Instagram Story as well, which was seen as her way of confirming she is back on the show.

Lexi has been recurring on General Hospital for the last several years, so there is no telling how long she will be on-screen this time.

While there has been no official confirmation from GH, chances are that if there is a funeral ahead for Sonny, Kristina of course would be there to mourn her father. Stay tuned.

So, excited that Lexi will be back on-air on GH? Comment below.
