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 Obrecht conspiring together?

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 Brooke will forgive Thomas for not telling that he knew. Taylor will force Ridge’s hand to side with Thomas and Brooke and Ridge will breakup(for now). Enter Jordan. Or he can be paired with Katie, Quinn or Donna! I am excited!

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!

OH MY WORD!!! Looking at his gorgeous face reminds me how much I miss GL! 🙁

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. (Because it isn’t.) Still, I wish Mr. Irizarry the best. Maybe he’ll triumph over the usual pattern on B&B and actually get some work out of this gig.

I might just go back to watching b&b just to see him…wish he joined gh instead!

As The World Turns

Emmy Winner and Noted Soap Opera Head Writer; Hogan Sheffer Passes Away At 61

Over the last several hours, reports have broke that one of daytime’s most notable scribes has died.  Hogan Sheffer, who was head writer at As the World Turns, Days of our Lives and The Young and the Restless has passed away at the age of 61.

Soap Hub, first reported the news via multiple sources, however, many writers who worked with Hogan during his tenure on the soaps have taken to social media to share their condolences and their grief and remembrances.

Sheffer’s appearance on the soap scene was unexpected, especially in a genre where it is often rare for new blood to take the reins at the head writer position.  Proctor & Gamble had decided to bring in Hogan after his work as the Director of Screenplay Development for DreamWorks, not because of his writing credits for a previous network soap.  He was given trial deal as a breakdown writer for the CBS soap and 10-weeks in became the beloved town of Oakdale’s new head writer.

Hogan and his then writing team were able to turn the classic, As the World Turns around.  The show went up in the ratings and during his time with the series ‘World Turn’s’ won two Daytime Emmys for Outstanding Drama Series, and he and the writing team picked up four Emmy victories all through 2000-2004.

Next, Sheffer landed in Salem as head writer of Days of our Lives along with Meg Kelly from 2006 through to the beginning of 2008.   He would later join The Young and the Restless and team up with then head writers: Maria Arena Bell and Scott Hamner, and eventually stay with the show till 2012.  During Sheffer’s time in Genoa City, Y&R also won a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Writing in 2011.

On Sunday, former WWE and daytime writer Tom Casiello, who was extremely close with Sheffer…  and who shared how Hogan gave him his start at writing in daytime, took to his Facebook page to pay tribute to a man who had such an impact on his life and many others.  It is worth the read here. 

Y&R writer, Sara Bibel tweeted: “Hogan Sheffer was a gamechanger for ATWT and daytime. Everyone I know who worked with him adored him. RIP”

And, iconic ATWT star, Martha Byrne (Ex-Lily) tweeted on Sheffer’s passing: “To say he was one of a kind would be a tremendous understatement. Our years at ATWT with Hogan at the helm were a rebirth for our beautiful show. Loved his writers, actors,crew. Blessed to have him on the first floor in Brooklyn ready to listen. Talented. Funny. Generous. RIP”

Colleen Zenk (Ex-Barbara, ATWT) also took to Twitter upon learning of the passing of Sheffer sharing: “I loved him, loved him, loved him… he was so good to me. Thank you for everything, Hogan. You were so loved. Especially, by me… Rest in peace…”
