Vincent Irizarry posted a very special and emotional message last evening on his Facebook page, having to do with the fact that today is his final tape date at All My Children as Dr. David Hayward, as we know it.  The Daytime Award winning actor has been a fan favorite for years, even those his dastardly doc has certainly perpetrated some shenanigans on the folks in Pine Valley! Vincent’s post is titled: “All My Children’s Last Day with ABC…Exit Stage Left”

Here is Vincent’s touching message to his fans: “Tomorrow morning, I will wake up to go to work on All My Children for the last time under ABC.  It has been a wonderful, and even often times, seemingly magical ride all these years. As with all my fellow actors on the show, I don’t yet know where we’re going, but I certainly know where I’ve been. I couldn’t feel more priviledged to have traveled this journey with many of you throughout these years, nor more grateful to have had the opportunity to play such an entertaining and rewarding character such as Dr. David Hayward. The depth of my gratitude to all of you is beyond measure, therefore, I thank you all ad infinitum… Keep the faith : )”

Well soapers, it looks like the countdown has begun… just a few more weeks of AMC on network television! We best get out some hankies for it, as we can assume there will be some very emotional on-screen moments,  even though it will be moving online in the near future via Prospect Park.

I fell like I am the only one who is not sad. I think the shows will be better and thrive under the production of Prospect Park. I am eager to hear what actors, writers, and producers will be on board.

I agree. The networks have been deliberately trying to kill the soaps for years. I think the move will encourage new growth for the soaps if the fans stay loyal! I encourage fans to watch. If you don’t have PC access, maybe get together with frinds who do. And all of the soap saver groups on fb are trying to help Prospect park get a cable deal to air the shows on TV. I ask everyone to help us by showing your love to the actors and encouraging them to stay with the shows. PP is hammering out contracts right… Read more »

I’m eager to see what happens too, but I’m still not happy about the network cancellation, especially by the OLTL cancellation, because it doesn’t make sense to me. In my opinion, OLTL is the best soap opera on television. The stories and the acting are superb….and I will never understand ABC’s reasoning behind letting this crown jewel go. AMC, on the other hand, has been in decline for several years now. Even after they let go of these last two hack writers, after the Pratt reign of terror, it still really hasn’t improved in my opinion. The show still centers… Read more »

The show is not centering around ryan and greenlee. There are many stroies going on, and no one plays second fiddle to them. Have you watched the last few months? They are actually being played as the crazy ones for a change.

I have watched AMC for years and years…. and in MY Personal Opinion….too much time is being given to both Ryan & Greenlee. Constantly butting into Kendall, Zach and anyone else’s life that they can butt into. They are the crazy ones, but not enough people put them in their place, like they should. I mean crazy Annie is a much better parent than Ryan these days. He never spends time with his child and he and Greenlee never work. Fusion must be in serious trouble. My whole point is, AMC needs to develop richer stories….I know they are short… Read more »

we love AMC and the new company will treat it with passion as it should have been. On ABC it was doomed now it can live on. Last thing any of us should do is trash talk any charactor or story. We want more people to watch and watch it get better..

And it doesn’t do any good to turn a blind eye to the problems that exist with the storylines that are currently running. I love AMC….I have for years, but there are issues that PP are going to have to address, if they want to continue on with AMC. Because let’s not forget, PP is in the business of making money….they are not going to hold on to AMC if it doesn’t improve and losses them money. Granted, right now they are the white knights swooping in to save the day, and I’m glad for that, but let’s not forget… Read more »

I really do hope that Vincent moves on with Prospect Park, I just can’t imagine the show without him. I’d like to see him with Cara and really do some great things with his research, and finally find some happiness. Vincent is such a wonderful actor, he has made me laugh out loud, and cry. If you read this Vincent please stay on.

Oh I entirely agree this show was ruined in the last 7 years because of Ryan Lavery and Greenlee. Moreso Ryan. All of the stories and their subsequent arcs had and still have Ryan headlining them. What exactly is his purpose of day in and day out repeating the same ole same ole of going after David Hayward and hellbent on being part of the Slater marriage once again? The writing for this finale has been horrendous–and once again the poor actors are pulling out all stops making it semi believable.

Not to mention this stupid storyline with Marissa, Bianca & JR. I’m so sick of writers throwing people together out of nowhere and making them gay. Since when did Marissa develop these feelings? It’s a slap in the face to people who are gay, and go through all kinds of struggles in their lives to be with whom they want to be with, and to live their lives the way they want. I hate when being gay becomes a trendy thing for shows to throw together. I will be so glad if and when Babe comes back and gets her… Read more »

I would love for Bianca’s first love, Sarah, to make a return to Pine Valley and rock Marissa & Bianca’s world up. Let’s see, she could have left the man that her mother forced her to marry, and made her way back to Pine Valley, and run into Bianca somewhere…..that would be amazing. And that is what we call writing, and following some history of the characters..lol

I’m going to miss all my baby boomer actors that have been on daytime for over 25 years. I remember reading about Irizarry in tv guide when they still printed a full page about soaps-Lujack from Guiding Light! My 80’s guys1 He’s such a solid actor he’s had steady work on several shows for 28 years.

I still expect to see him somewhere….maybe even on line.

I have always thought that Vincent would be another Cary Grant in some of those old romantic comedies. Does anyone else feel this way?

Michael B. Jordan Pays Tribute To Chadwick Boseman: “Since Nearly The Beginning Of My Career, Starting with All My Children When I was 16 Years Old You Paved The Way For Me”

Following the news of the tragic death of now motion picture icon, Chadwick Boseman late Friday, tributes and sentiments have poured in from celebrities, politicians and fans from all across the world.

Chadwick Boseman passed away late last week at the age of 43 from colon cancer – a battle he kept silent about for the last four years of life.

No one could be more intertwined with Boseman’s career than that of his fellow Black Panther star, Michael B. Jordan.  For Jordan took over the role of Reggie Porter on All My Children from Boseman after the late actor lasted one week, following standing up to, and addressing concerns, of racial stereotypes in the way that the part was written.  Reggie was introduced to Pine Valley as a gang member in 2003.  As previously reported it was Boseman who helped the soap opera improve the role that Jordan took over with some recommendations.

Now Michael B. Jordan has written a heartfelt remembrance of Chadwick that he shared on his Instagram, and what he has meant to his life, including how he showed him how to be better, to honor purpose and create legacy.

Read below Michael’s post:

“I’ve been trying to find the words, but nothing comes close to how I feel. I’ve been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug…everything.

I wish we had more time.

One of the last times we spoke, you said we were forever linked , and now the truth of that means more to me than ever. Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old you paved the way for me. You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not…I’ve been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness.

I wish we had more time.

Everything you’ve given the world … the legends and heroes that you’ve shown us we are … will live on forever. But the thing that hurts the most is that I now understand how much of a legend and hero YOU are. Through it all, you never lost sight of what you loved most. You cared about your family , your friends, your craft, your spirit. You cared about the kids, the community, our culture and humanity. You cared about me. You are my big brother, but I never fully got a chance to tell you, or to truly give you your flowers while you were here.

I wish we had more time.

I’m more aware now than ever that time is short with people we love and admire. I’m gonna miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor, and incredible gifts. I’ll miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes. I’m dedicating the rest of my days to live the way you did. With grace, courage, and no regrets. “Is this your king!?” Yes . he . is!  Rest In Power Brother.”

What do you think of Michael’s tribute to Chadwick and how they have been interconnected dating back to 2003 and All My Children? Comment below.

Chadwick Boseman, ‘Black Panther’ Star and the Original Reggie On AMC, Dies At 43

In just heartbreaking news in an already dismal 2020, one of the brightest motion picture stars, Chadwick Boseman has died at the age of 43.

Boseman was battling colon cancer for the last four years of his life.  According to his rep, Boseman was diagnosed in 2016 with stage 3 colon cancer and his battle continued as it progressed to stage 4

Chadwick passed away with his wife and family by his side in his home.   In a shocking revelation, all of the movie performances in the last four years he has filmed were done in between chemotherapy and countless surgery.

Boseman is best known for his groundbreaking role as King T’Challa  in Black Panther.   His performance was the first ever Marvel Studio movie headlined by a black actor.  The film was nominated for an Academy Award.   He first appeared as the character in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War.

Most recently, Chadwick appeared in the Spike Lee’s Vietnam War drama Da 5 Bloods, and this year he’s due to appear opposite Viola Davis Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” the film adaptation of the August Wilson play.  The actor starred in other films, including playing James Brown in Get On Up and Jackie Robinson in 42,  and the lead role in Marshall.

However, Boseman actually got his start on All My Children when he was the original actor cast in the role of Reggie Porter.  He appeared on the soap for only one week before the role was recast with none other than Michael B. Jordan, and their paths could eventually cross years later on multiple film projects.

In an interview in 2019, Boseman revealed what led him to be fired from All My Children stating:  “When I got it (the part), I was like, ‘This is not part of my manifesto. This is not part of what I want to do. How can I make it work?’ Because with a soap opera, you don’t know the full scope of what’s gonna happen — you don’t know where they’re gonna take the character, because they don’t always know where the character is going. And because of that, there’s possibly room for me to adjust this and change it and make it so it’s stereotypical on the page but not on the screen.”

For Boseman had issues with how Reggie was portrayed and how it was written with racial stereotypes.  In story, Reggie was a young gang member who was adopted by Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) and her husband, Jackson Montgomery (Walt Willey). “I remember going home and thinking, ‘Do I say something to them about this? Do I just do it?’ And I couldn’t just do it. “I had to voice my opinions and put my stamp on it. And the good thing about it was, it changed it a little bit for Michael B. Jordan.”  Apparently the producers told Boseman he was too much trouble but took some of his suggestions on the role moving forward.
