Looks like Mary Beth Evans (Kayla) let it slip on her Twitter that Vincent Irizarry is joining the cast of DAYS. This news likely leaked before the show wanted it to as MBE tweet has now been deleted.
No word on when he will begin airing.
Wow, this is a great get for them!
Now this seems more like the actor that GG, KA and SN were referencing in that interview. I love that after all that speculation, we’ve gotten notice that both Vincent Irizarry and Jordi Vilasuso have joined the show. You’re right, gdfl, the DAYS casting peeps have been doing great work. There seems to be a heavy focus on AMC actors right now, but I’m not complaining.
Meant to add: Now if only DAYS would get Christie Clark back!!!!!
This news totally made my day!! (And yes, I’m the ultimate daytime geek in that way haha)
A big thank you to Scoopster for keeping your fellow Derbyites informed and for always following all things DAYS-related on Twitter so closely and then reporting back to us to give us the inside “Scoop”!
I’m so glad Mary Beth Evans (bless her heart) had that accidental slip-up with her tweet because now that we know that Irizarry’s been added to the cast in addition to Vilasuso, only has me even more excited about all that’s ahead for DAYS over the next couple months.
FUN FACT: This very day six years ago, in 2009 (marking the only time over the last decade the Daytime Emmys Ceremony was held this late in the year at the end of August), Vincent Irizarry won an Outstanding Supporting Actor Emmy (for his role as David Hayward on AMC) in a historic tie alongside GL‘s Jeff Branson. Who could’ve foreseen then how vastly different the daytime landscape would look six years later (with only four remaining broadcast soaps, and the possibility of perhaps an iAMC Prospect Park return??).
I love this casting news, it is pretty amazing to have VI….DAYS is the it soap right now it seems, it’s all over the media, ratings have been growing for weeks and the show has seemingly turned a long, big corner.
The show seems serious about going after other soaps viewers and shaking the landscape a bit.
Also I am totally excited about the prospect of a GL Beth/Lujack reunion between Judi Evans and Vincent Irizarry…I wonder if they will cross paths now that they are reunited on DAYS.
