Hopefully this casting move signifies that the end of the “Phoebeth” story is coming, because it’s been dragged out for far too long. And once B&B stops writing story for Vincent, like they eventually do for all their newest powerhouse actors, GH should snatch him up and bring David Hayward to Port Charles. Now that Hayden is back in town and will no doubt cause drama for Finn and Anna, the writers at GH should capitalize on it and bring Anna’s ex to town. The hospital needs new doctors anyway, and how great would it be to see David and… Read more »

Glad someone agrees with me. I said those exact words months ago, when he was killed off on DOOL.

After the Project Orifice debacle, there’s not a snowball’s chance in my front yard that David Hayward could ever be taken seriously as a doctor at GH. I don’t watch B&B but I thought Vincent had a good run as the long lost Kiriakis brother on Days (who ironically are doing their own ripoff of the Project Orifice mess lately, which thankfully he was not involved in)

Damn! Vincent deserves better than B&B…the worst soap on air!
I made the mistake of sticking with B&B when Thorsten Kaye came on board, and he’s no longer a favorite.
I won’t make that mistake again with VI! I want to continue liking him.

Better there than at GH…I’m so tired of recycled ABC soap actors ending up in Port Charles!

I CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS. Finally, this secret is about to blow. I have a theory that Flo is going to get pregnant and this man will be her Dr. Then it will come to light that this is her first pregnancy, and she DID NOT birth Phoebe/Beth. Then it all starts to unravel. I hope he sticks around. He would SIZZLE with Katherine Kelly Lang. Bridge is prolly going to go bust after this secret is blown. I am sure Bell is going to give Thomas a soap brain tumor to excuse his behavior but there is NO WAY… Read more »

Be still my heart! He’s my favorite soap hunk of all time. I adore him, and he’s an amazing actor. I hope that B&B doesn’t waste him the way Y&R did. If he doesn’t have a permanent leading role on B&B (unlikely), then I do wish that Y&R or GH would hire him. He could easily play a new character on Y&R. What a mess they made of his former character, David Chow. He had three different names, and he is definitely NOT Chinese looking!

Hopefully we’ll wrap up this storyline soon. Please and thank you.

Oh he was good on Gl, and Santa Barbara, and AMC, and DOOL, Y&R, not so much, as Dr.Helen Ruth said, he was totally wasted there.

Glad for Vincent Irrizarry and I truly hope that Brad Bell gives him a story worthy of his talents = DON’T WASTE HIM!

What’s the point of B&B hiring veteran, talented soap actors like Irizazzy if it never gives them a decent plot and never bothers to use them for more than 5 episodes?

I have always like Irizazzy but not even a (fleeting) appearance by him on B&B could entice me to watch that show. Frustrated by the continuous poor quality of the writing and the rehashing of love triangles, I gave up on B&B over a decade ago. Basically, when Darlene Conley (Sally Spectra) died, I walked.

I survived a little longer, viewing at least occasionally until Stephanie died and Susan Flannery left, but without Stephanie’s somewhat restraining presence on the nonsense going on around her, I’ve largely found the show unwatchable, and nothing I’ve seen on here has led me to regret abandoning it. It just seems like plot-driven nonsense on top of plot-driven nonsense. I like some of the actors a lot, notably Heather Tom, but given what they’re being asked to play on screen, it’s no real sacrifice not to watch them have to fight their way through trying to make it believable.
