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!

Constance Towers Returns To GH As Helena Cassadine … But Just How Does She Appear?

Now, any General Hospital fan knows that if there is skullduggery and evil going down, Helena Cassadine (whether dead or alive) is usually somehow involved when it comes to the lives of certain people in Port Charles.

And … some major storyline news from TV Line reveals that on next Monday’s August 19th episode of the ABC soap opera, Constance Towers reprises her role as the evil one herself … Helena!

Apparently, look for Helena to appear in a flashback with none other than Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) and about Drew Cain’s time in Afghanistan.  That scene might hold a key to just what Shiloh wants now that he has implanted Drew’s memories into Franco (Roget Howath), thanks to Dr. Cabot’s work.  But could what is revealed also relate to the story that will see Billy Miller (Drew) exit the canvas later this month? Stay tuned.

Viewers last saw Helena alive in story until November of 2016, but then she was part of Jake’s hallucinations that were a part of the chimera storyline that climaxed at the Nurses’ Ball back in May of 2017.

So what do you think Helena’s presence in a flashback will reveal? And, who is ultimately having that flashback? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Daytime Emmys To Merge Younger Actor & Actress Category Into One As Gender-Inclusive Categories Are On The Rise

The upcoming 47th annual Daytime Emmys are already making some changes to key categories and specifically this one that affects daytime drama performers.  Word from Variety is that NATAS (National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences) is going to announce that they are combining the Younger Actor and Actress categories into one gender-neutral category

Not only will the Younger performer category be gender-inclusive, but network soap performances will be combined with digital drama series performances for the category.  Previously, for this past Daytime Emmys, NATAS had changed the Guest Performer in a Drama Series to be gender-inclusive.

This category was initially created in 1985 when it was called the Outstanding Ingenue and then from there tweaked into Outstanding Juvenile Female and Male, and more recently that morphed into the Younger Actor and Actress categories.

Former GH star Hayley Erin (Ex-Kiki) and former DAYS star, Kyle Pettis (Ex-Theo) will now be the last female and male to win the two separate categories with this new move for 2020.

Fans of film and TV have noticed that on several award shows on MTV: their Movie and TV Awards and their VMA’s, there are several gender-inclusive categories, as well as the Television Critics Association Awards who for instance doles out Outstanding Individual Achievement in Drama in comedy.
