Noah Newman Switcheroo! Schmidt back in, Kleintank out at Y&R!

Who says you can’t go home again? Well, today The Young and the Restless confirmed what many suspected by actor Kevin Schmidt’s post on facebook, which in a sort of cryptic message revealed he is headed back to Genoa City to reprise the coveted role of Noah Newman, Sharon and Nick’s son.  That means, that Luke Kleintank is out as Noah.  When last we saw the young Newman and Kleintank,  he was headed out of Genoa City and off to the Big Apple for a music career.

So what did Schmidt exactly post to his facebook page? “Spent this morning in a familiar place my friends! Felt nice to be visiting. More details to come!” Look for Schmidt’s first airdate to be April 14th.

So, are you glad they made a Noah switch at Y&R? Let us know!

Absolutely. Thrilled Schmidt is back. That other guy was not a fit at all.

What’s wrong with getting a good young actor in the part for a change, Mick Hazen maybe.

Kevin is a great actor! He was and will be perfect for the role of Nick and Sharon’s son.

I will miss Luke. Kevin is good, but Luke’s acting is superior and he was beginning to take Noah’s character to a whole new level. I will miss Luke and Noah’s future.

Christopher Sean’s Final DAYS Episode Airs Today, As He Shares Parting Thoughts: “I Was So Honored To Bring Paul Narita To Life”

Do not miss Tuesday’s November 20th episode of Days of our Lives, as it marks the final appearance of Christopher Sean in the role of Paul Narita.  How does Paul leave the canvas, exactly? Grab your hankies for an emotional goodbye.

When Sean was brought on to DAYS, not only did he get involved in what would end up being a love triangle with several iterations. but so much more than that, especially since DAYS tackled a pro athlete coming out, and a Japanese American at that, who feared he would not be accepted by his family if they knew the truth about him.  Christopher won the hearts of so many viewers and cast members at DAYS including: his longtime scene partners: Chandler Massey (Will), Freddie Smith (Sonny), and Paul’s on-screen father, Drake Hogestyn (John Black).

Christopher took to Instagram to share his parting thoughts as he exits the show on today’s episode of DAYS: “It’s been an amazing 4 years with @nbcdays 🙂 I am so honored to have the opportunity to bring Paul Narita to life, a Japanese American Gay Professional Baseball Player. An ally to LGBTQ and Just as important an ambassador for Diversity. Representation is so important because we all have an equal place and we all are an important resource to America’s history, not one more important than the other. Change comes when we understand that. Thank you @nbc for taking a chance with me. Thank you Bruce Evans and Ken Corday and Marnie Saitta, Albert Alarr and Janet Rider, Jennifer Sinclair… the list goes on and on. To all the cast and crew on Days, my extended family, thank you! I’ve grown so much with you and created such wonderful memories. To the fans, none of this would be possible without you. All my love and thanks.  My final farewell on Days… whoa. I will miss you all, my home, my beginning. Until Next Time.‬”
