Rumors had been swirling all weekend and now Soap Opera Digest is reporting that former “All My Children” actor, and “The Price is Right” male model, Robert Scott Wilson (ex-Pete Cortlandt) has joined the cast of NBC’s “Days of our Lives” as a recast Ben Rogers. He replaces daytime newcomer Justin Gaston, who in real-life is married to “The Young and the Restless’” Melissa Ordway (Abby Newman).
Per the publication, Wilson had already been on set filming in January as the series celebrated its two year renewal by NBC. As a result, Wilson’s first airdate isn’t expected until at least next month due to the soaps four to five months ahead filming schedule – Gaston began filming on the series in mid-October and didn’t air until late February.
Corday Productions, which produces “DAYS,” has not confirmed any casting changes per its policy.
In remembrance of the Boston Marathon bombings that took place one year ago, a portion of the east coast broadcast of ABC’s “General Hospital” will be preempted on Tuesday, April 15, a representative for the network informs Soap Opera Network. ABC News will cut into the broadcast from approximately 2:35 PM to 2:55 PM, EST.
According to the network, there will be no changes made to the episode (#13,036) to accommodate the preemption. Therefore, viewers will still be able to tune in to see Sonny’s conscience continuing to haunt him, while Carlos fears he could be accused of shooting AJ. Jordan begins her new job, while Ava and Julian confront each other about their deeds, and Ned (Wally Kurth) returns to Port Charles.
Viewers on the east coast looking to watch the episode in its entirety can do so by utlizing the power of WATCH ABC, Hulu Plus or their cable/satellite providers ABC OnDemand service.
The east coast preemption will not affect the west coast airing.

As the saying goes, all good things must come to an end. And so it goes for Elizabeth Hendrickson’s time as “The Young and the Restless’” Chloe Mitchell. The actress recently announced that she’ll be wrapping up her six-year stint as the character and will be saying goodbye to daytime — at least for the time being. But before she takes off, she sat down with Soap Opera Network to spill the beans on why she decided to walk away from “Y&R,” what’s in store for her future, and what fans can expect from Chloe’s final days on the canvas. Read on to get the full scoop!
“The Young and the Restless’” Ignacio Serricchio (Alex Chavez) has most recently been seen on Fox’s hit series, “Bones,” but that’s not the only place fans can catch the actor: He’ll be performing at Hark in the Park-ing Lot, a Children’s Hospital Los Angeles charity event, this weekend!
Serricchio and his new band, Los Zorros, will be taking an outdoor stage at The Secret Rose Theater on Sunday, April 13, to perform a variety of tunes and raise awareness about HARK (Healing Arts Reaching Kids), which is a program at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles that utilizes art and music in non-traditional ways to help sick children.
Soap Opera Network has learned exclusively that veteran soap stars Ronn Moss, Sean Kanan, Judi Evans and Patrika Darbo have joined the cast of LANY Entertainment’s “The Bay: The Series,” which premieres Chapter 12 on Thursday, May 1 with episodes running a bit longer in length than they had in prior chapters (episodes will now run between 17-20 minutes, typical for a weekly 1/2 hour series excluding commercials).
Moss, who departed CBS’ “The Bold and the Beautiful” in September 2012 after portraying the widely popular role of Ridge Forrester for more than 25 years, joins “The Bay” as former Bay City District Attorney, John Blackwell. Evans (Adrienne Johnson Kiriakis, “DAYS”) will portray Katherine Blackwell, John’s wife. While at first it would appear that John and Katherine are in town to reconnect with their son, Damian Blackwell (Erik Fellows), the power couple are in actuality seeking vengeance against the Garrett family, who they share a hidden past.
