      Freddie Smith Joins 'DAYS' as Rumored Gay Love Interest of Will Horton

      ( — Currently appearing on The CW’s “90210,” rumors persist that actor Freddie Smith will be joining the cast of NBC’s “Days of our Lives” in a contract role. Some of the rumors are going as far as to say that he will portray the love interest of Will Horton (Chandler Massey), who is also rumored to be the character the soap will reveal as being gay.

      When contacted by Soap Opera Network, a “DAYS” representative confirmed that it is indeed a rumor, but could not confirm published reports. A representative for Smith was unable to provide any details on the matter, but promised to keep us abreast on the situation. On the aforementioned “90210,” Smith currently plays the role of Marco Salazar, the male love interest of former “Days of our Lives” star Trevor Donovan (ex-Jeremy Horton) and his former womanizing character Teddy Montogomery.

      Should Smith indeed be joining the cast of “DAYS,” it is understood he will be playing one of Adrienne and Justin Kiriakis’ (Judi Evans Luciano and Wally Kurth) son’s, one of which is reported to be returning to Salem later this summer. In a casting call released in February, the show was seeking to cast the role of Ryan, who was described as an “all-American high school idol. Gorgeous, well-built quarterback of the football team. Popular, confident and charismatic…the world is at his feet for the taking.” Character names are subject to change from the time of auditioning of the role to the actual casting of the role. Smith, who is currently 23 years of age in real life is playing a high school jock type on “90210,” so it wouldn’t be much of a stretch for him to be playing the same on “DAYS.” Whichever actor hired to take on the role was said to debut sometime this month, but there has been no news since the casting call was first reported on. According to website, Smith’s rumored employment at “DAYS” would find him filming this month for what would be a late July/early August debut as the NBC drama currently films 2 months in advance of airdate. Is it possible airdate was confused with tape date? We’ll soon find out!

      Before gaining notoriety on “90210,” Smith appeared in a 2008 episode of “Medium” and the 2009 short film “Weak Species.”

      In the clip below, Smith is heard describing a top secret character he will be portraying on an unidentified television series that now appears to be “Days of our Lives.”

        Thorsten Kaye Signs on the Dotted Line for Return to 'All My Children'

        Additional reporting by Angela Rosa

        ( — While it was widely expected to happen, ABC is now confirming that Thorsten Kaye has indeed signed on to return to “All My Children” in the role of Zach Slater, the presumed dead husband of Kendall Hart Slater, as the daytime soap begins counting down to its final episode.

        Kaye is “coming back sometime later this summer” reports an ABC representative to Soap Opera Network in confirming the news. Based on a posting on his official website the actor will begin filming in late June, which would place his first airdate as late July or early August barring any quick scene insertions as the soap has done with Cady McClain and her return as Dixie Cooney beginning Tuesday, May 17. “AMC” films approximately five weeks ahead of airdate. It is understood that the actor will appear in “a good number of shows.”

        Kaye first aired in the role of casino owner Mr. Slater on May 20, 2004. The actor became one-half of one of “AMC’s” most popular pairings of the last decade – that being paired opposite Erica Kane’s (Susan Lucci) first born Kendall Hart (Alicia Minshew). Kaye last aired on contract on December 29, 2009. The four-time Daytime Emmy nominee, twice for his role on “AMC,” has returned for several short stints on the soap since his initial departure. Before joining “AMC, Kaye played Patrick Thornhart on “One Life to Live” from October 1995 – September 1997 and Ian Thornhart on “Port Charles” from May 2000 until its last episode in October 2003.

        With Kendall currently finding romance with Griffin Castillo (Jordi Vilasuso), what do you think her husbands return means for her future?
