Rob Scott Wilson has been one busy guy!  First, becoming the first male model ever in the history of CBS’ top rated daytime game show, The Price is Right! And while there, he landed the role of Pete Cortlandt in the online reboot of All My Children!  And then, came word officially yesterday that Rob is actually been at Days of our Lives as the recast for the role of Ben, replacing Justin Gatson in the role.

This morning, Rob shared his sentiments on his final The Price is Right episode that airs today, and moving on full-time to Salem, and most importantly being from Boston, Rob remembers  the anniversary of the tragic Boston Marathon bombing today on his Instagram account.

Wilson shared:  “As you all may or may not have seen, my last taped episode of #PriceIsRight aired this morning. I thank God for such an amazing experience/opportunity and for being a part of history.  That’s all I ever wanted.  But in NO WAY am I leaving for a bad reason, some of you may have already read, but it’s for a GREAT reason… And I can’t wait for you all to see it unfold. Stay Tuned, and as always thank you all for your continued love and support. And lets not forget the most important part of today, 1 year anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombing. Thoughts and prayers go out to the families affected 1 year ago xoxo #BostonStrong”

Rob also tweeted his acknowledgement of his time on The Price is Right:  “Thank you ALL for your love and support! @PriceIsRight will always have a place in my heart and my journey. Many new things on the horizon!”

I still think he shouldve played a recast Chad…unless Ben and Jordan turn out to be Eve’s children or get this story moving Days may no longer be my no.1 soap!!!

Same with the return of John Black who felt more like a day player…what was the point!!!

Hi jimh, I think the new Ben looks more like Jordan, which is good because they are Eve’s twin sons! The story could be slow because of the subject matter. The stalled talks with Charlotte Ross before settling with Kassie DePaiva could have slowed things down too. I think things are looking up! If I’m right, who would you like the father(s) of the “twins” to be: Frankie and or Jack or someone different?

Forever Days:Frankie should be the father…if the show goes that way!

4everDAYS did Eve have twin boys? I hope that they are related to Eve but was Jeanie/Teresa born when Eve was still on the show? If so then the ages don’t match up for Jordan. Maybe Ben is Eve’s son but Jordan is older and her step daughter.

It’s funny, looking at his photo, I thought it was the actor who played Chad. I hope he brings some excitement to the boring Jordan, Rafe, Ben “mystery” storyline.

BTripp, It has never been mentioned that Eve had children. Jeanie/Theresa is Eve’s half sister. The ages of Jordan and Ben have not been revealed.

Surprised CBS let him get away—- but trust me NBC and DAYS will have him Shirtless in Salem in no time, which I suspect is the main reason for switching Ben, this guy has better ABS LOL.

Patrick

LOL….

i’m certain.. he’ll be featured nonetheless…

I do have to agree : with the actor… who portrays, Nathan… on GH

he is far and away the winner in this category… and in hindsight… or full on headlights… should be

Oye! thank Goodness… Britt and Nathan… are : safe

Levi… is a little out there… and it’s not his doing… but… he reminds me of done over.. Bruce Jenner… all the national enquirer.. speculation.. that he’s in the TRANS – for – mation mode… fits this actor to a T

off track: but… doesn’t Levi ring true… on a comparative… to Spinelli… (Levi) own oddities and beats to his own drum…

back to Nathan… I thought.. he was much better on Mondays eppi when talking with Madeline… at the jail , and was a little better with Britt

Hopefully he will have some interesting lines on the show as the character Ben – so far, Ben has been kind of an uninteresting role.

How to be an Actor on a Soap Opera:

1.) Know your lines
2.) Look good with your shirt off
3.) Master that inquisitive look as the scene fades to commercial
4.) Look good with your shirt off
5.) Polish your teeth
6.) Practice that “sincere” look
7.) Look good with your shirt off

Kelly Ripa To Guest Star On CW’s Riverdale

Here’s a fun bit of casting news!  Live with Kelly and Ryan and former All My Children star, Kelly Ripa  (Ex-Hayley) is joining her real-life husband, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC) on the hit CW soapy drama Riverdale.

Consuelos already plays the the role of Hiram Lodge, and now Ripa will plays his mistress, Mrs. Mulwray.

Kelly shared the inspired-casting choice on Instagram relating: “It’s a family affair …23 years of auditioning for a role i was born to play. Coming soon to the CW;s Riverdale.”’

The CW released a statement on the casting of Ripa, adding: “Kelly Ripa will guest star on Riverdale as Mrs. Mulwray. Confident and tough, she is Hiram Lodge’s alleged mistress. She’s a beautiful, icy, femme fatale who gets caught up in a conspiracy that’s much bigger than she initially realized.”

Film buffs take note!  Ripa’s character name is borrowed from Faye Dunaway’s Oscar-nominated role in Chinatown (1974), Evelyn Mulwray.   Those who saw Chinatown know that Evelyn was a femme fatale as well caught up in a conspiracy!

And there is more “All in the Consuleos Family” casting.  The couple’s son Michael is portraying the teen-aged version of Hiram on tonight’s all-new episode.

Riverdale airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT
