( — The news of changes hitting NBC’s “” keeps on rolling tonight as one of the soaps outgoing stars,  (soon-to-be ex-Jack Deveraux), posted a heartfelt message to his fans on his Facebook page just a short time ago in response to the news of his pending departure:

As you’ve probably heard, the news came out today that my character (and I) will be leaving the show. That’s the way it goes in this business. More details later… meanwhile-as always-thank you to everyone for your support.

Today of all days, it was nice to get this expression of support from the fans for Missy and me. It was a sweet thing to do-thank you very much.

  • hi matt! you are awsome! At what you do!

  • Days does not know what they are doing at all!

  • Carol

    Just watched, One Term More, the new viral political parody. Had absolutely no idea that you were a REAL songster! BTW, casting at Days just made a huge mistake. Come to Broadway with your talented wife! Best wishes.
