So after a week’s worth of conflicting reports, it has been confirmed through an ABC spokesperson to ABC Soaps In Depth that indeed Dr. David Hayward has taken his last breath, and thus Vincent Irizarry has exited the ABC soap. “We are sorry to lose Vincent, but David’s death was storyline-dictated and the payoff of this story will reveal many unexpected twists and plot developments,” says the rep in a statement to the publication.

This news came to light after Irizarry’s recent statement on his website: “Regarding my character’s sudden end and any previously reported news of negotiations between me and ABC, those statements were not authorized and premature,” says the new message. “Unfortunately, there’s really not much more I can say at this time except how truly appreciative I am for all the comments on websites and message boards which have been written in support of my work and my character. There would be no doubt to me whatsoever, if I ever do return to AMC it will be in greater part because of this wonderful outpouring from all of you who love the show and David as much as I do. I am forever grateful to all of you…we’ll miss you, Vincent …and David!”

Sudden demise? Did they kill him off with poisoned pancakes?
The guys been employed in daytime for 25 years. AMC is crazy to let the talented Irizarry go.

Does this mean there is room for a new Dr. in Pine Valley?
May I suggest Dr. Reid Oliver. He and his partner Luke Snyder come fully equipped with a built in fanbase. A very large one.

He and his character were the reasons I watched All My Children. I thought his acting were superb, and great to look at too. He gave the show excitement. I don’t know how you can bring him back, however others have come back from the dead. The show isn’t the same without him.

Vincent, you truly are a great actor, otherwise you could have not made us hate you (David) so much! You will be missed. Good luck in your future endeavors.

Zach is not worth the money. Boring, same suits, same disposition, no comparison to David. Although I do think David could have done a better job on Kendall’s heart scar.

The writers at ABC for All My Children are truly moronic—-how do you get rid of such an incredible actor as Vincent . He made the show interesting and his goodguy/badguy portrayal of David Haywood is comparable to none. Vincent – you are an incredible actor and don’t let the idiotic writers at all my children tell you otherwise. You will be sorely missed, but fear not, I’m sure some other soap, with the common sense to see how truly gifted an actor you are, will sign you up in not time. Shame on you All My Children writers— unfortunately… Read more »

I keep hoping that somehow David managed to pull a big hoax off, and that he is alive, well, and just waiting to return to Pine Valley. I believe the show really needs David to add some spice to it…JR can’t be the only bad boy on there. So, somehow someone has to convince the writers they can finda way to bring David back and create even more of those twists and turns they want.

I miss Zach, he is easier on the eyes, but I am and is tired of Kendal putting everyone in front of Zach. She just keep doing the same thing over and over and over. It like watching the same movie again and again with her and Zach’s relationship. So for that I am glad Zach is dead. It Kendal’s fault Zach is dead, she should stop putting people before Zach. So if Zach dying means I do not have to look at Kendal running behind everyone else and their family playing “captain save a boat” in regards to everyone… Read more »

Michael B. Jordan Recalls His Acting Start as All My Children’s Reggie in SNL Opening Monologue

Last night, Michael B. Jordan hosted Saturday Night Live.  The Creed star, who is the director of the upcoming Creed III due out in March, took to the stage to deliver his opening monologue, and right off the top he mentioned his beginnings as All My Children’s Reggie.

Jordan portrayed Reggie from 2003-2006 on the ABC soap opera (his character was eventually adopted by Jack Montgomery).

When Michael hit the stage, he shared: “Yesterday, I had a crazy full-circle moment. We pre-shot some videos for the show and when I got to the studio I realized it was the exact same place where I shot one of my first acting roles on the soap opera All My Children.

He then tossed to a clip of his 16-year-old self in which Reggie says, “sometimes the animal in me gets kind of crazy” and then howls life a wolf at the end of the scene. Back to the SNL stage, Jordan said mockingly, “I’m pretty sure I hit puberty mid-howl.”

Jordan ended his monologue by looping it back to his early acting days on AMC, sharing: “I just want to say, I’m so grateful to be standing on this stage. Sometimes, I can take myself a little too seriously but tonight, I’m going to have fun, I’m just going to go for it. And maybe, just maybe let the inner animal get a little crazy.”

Watch Michael’s opening monologue below.  Then let us know, what did you think of the the AMC Reggie clip reference? Do you recall Michael’s days on the ABC daytime drama series? Comment below.

TONIGHT: AMC Alum Jonathan Bennett in Hallmark’s First LGBTQ+ Led Rom-Com ‘The Holiday Sitter’

In Hallmark’s first holiday movie offering featuring a same-sex love story at its epicenter, Jonathan Bennett (ex-JR Chandler, All My Children) not only stars, but is the project’s executive producer.  And, on Sunday night, when The Holiday Sitter premieres at 8 p.m. EST, it’s a big deal.

After much outcry for Hallmark’s Countdown to Christmas programming block to be more inclusive, the channel is now poised to be on the right side of history.

The set-up of this ‘meet-cute’ rom-com goes something like this: Sam (Bennett) who is a workaholic has to ditch his Hawaiian holiday plans when he is asked to watch his sister’s children (his niece and nephew).  However, when Sam becomes overwhelmed, he gets a helping hand from his sister’s neighbor, Jason played by George Krissa. And within a blink of an eye, Sam and Jason find they are both unattached and attracted to each other, and Christmas becomes a lot brighter for the two of them.

As for Bennett, he previously appeared in Hallmark’s 2020 film, The Christmas House which was the channel’s first holiday movie to include a same-sex storyline. He later returned to that role in last year’s sequel The Christmas House 2: Deck Those Halls.

Bennett told USA Today on tonight’s milestone Hallmark holiday tale: “What’s so special about The Holiday Sitter is that it’s the first time we’ll see two men meet-cute and fall in love at Christmas. We tell a story that’s really important, so people that are watching it feel seen when they watch it. But just like Christmas is for everybody, The Holiday Sitter is for everybody… It just happens to have two men as the lead.”

Hallmark Media’s Executive Vice-President, Lisa Hamilton told Deadline: “We felt that it was time for a story with a gay couple. We are really trying to make it so that everybody sees themselves when they tune in. We are trying to stay true to the Hallmark brand values, one of which is inclusiveness. It’s a true of Hallmark cards, which has a card for every kind of occasion. In the past, there was a focus on one particular kind of love story, and I think everybody thought, ‘wow, we’re not telling the whole story here.’”

The timing of The Holiday Sitter comes after Candace Cameron Bure received much backlash for her sentiments when she told the Wall Street Journal that the Great American Family network in which she stars in several of their holiday films, will “keep traditional marriage at the core” and never do stories/movies featuring same-sex couples.

Check out a preview for The Holiday Sitter below.

Now let us know, what do you think of the Hallmark Channel finally featuring a gay love story for one of its holiday films? Will you be checking out the landmark movie? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
