AMC: Vincent Irizarry RETURNS!; David is BACK!

David Hayward returns!

With the death of Richie Novak (Billy Miller), "All My Children" has been missing a troublemaker. Not the case anymore. We can tell you EXTREMELY exciting news: Dr. David Hayward, the narcissistic, manipulative jerk is coming back to Pine Valley, once again played by Vincent Irizarry. He'll show up in early to mid-fall.

When last seen in 2006, David left town, rejected by the woman he loved, Dixie (Cady McClain). Of course, not without doing some damage that would have ripple effects for months to come: He told Dixie and Tad (Michael E. Knight) that their then-missing daughter, Kate, was really Emma McDermott, and he also let Dixie know that Krystal was carrying Tad's child (which, ultimately, led to Krystal and Adam's breakup). So this begs the question: What hell is David going to wreak when he gets to town? And more importantly, who will be his victims? Actually, "victims" is more appropriate.

It's not like he's not connected to half the town. Adam (David Canary), JR (Jacob Young), and Tad are his mortal enemies. And once he finds out that Dixie has died, he's probably not going to be in a very good mood. His daughter with Krystal (Bobbie Eakes), Babe (Amanda Baker), will most likely be the object of his special brand of parenting (read: control). And let's not forget he once got it on with Erica Kane (Susan Lucci). This was, of course, after she kidnapped him and held him hostage in her basement, his hands in a vise (during that period when she was wearing that "Phantom of the Opera" mask. Remember?).

Anyway, all hell will break loose, no doubt.

Vincent Irizarry played David from 1997 through his exit in 2006. He was most recently seen on "The Young and the Restless," where he was Nikki's now-dead husband, David Chow. David Chow was similar to David Hayward -- a real baddie. He killed Ji Minn and had that gambling problem. But he lacked the finesse that made David so lovably evil.

BTW, how bizarre is it that David's ex-wife, Anna (Finola Hughes) is on "General Hospital?" Talk about weird six degrees of separation. It's yet another Port Charles-Pine Valley link (the other being Adam's daughter, Skye, and the fact that Angie and Tracy Quartermaine [Jane Elliot] were on "The City" together).

So we are so stoked because things are going to get really, really good in Pine Valley.

What do you hope happens with David's return?

So thrilled to hear this. I have doubts about Pratt when it comes to a lot of things, but a character like David Hayward is right up his alley.

Great news. I hope that David's return will also mean the permanent, long-term contract return of Cady McClain as Dixie Cooney as well. I also hope Julia Barr(Brooke) comes back to, but I've got less hope for her than McClain.

Good for Vincent!

He never should have been booted out of Pine Valley anyway. He always made the place interesting.

Glad he got another job so quickly.

He's never without a job for long, is he? He went from AMC to Y&R and now back to AMC.

I was hoping this would happen.

Now they have the perfect way to bring Dixie back. I think someone mentioned elsewhere how Pratt likes surprises. I cool one would be them keeping how David returns a secret only to have him appear on his first day in a undisclosed location...where he is keeping Dixie. That would be great.

I doubt we will see Brooke though. Dixie, good chance. Brooke, nope. I have a feeling that bridge may have been burned.

Oh, I didnt know we could customize this! LOL

Joy to the the fucking world. I'm sorry, but once, make that twice, bitten three times shy. Until there's reason for me to believe that Pratt won't just use him as some one note villain who has no heart or depth, I'm not going to care.

Plus, now Pratt can take the sledge hammer that Megan was so fond of to my David and Erica, together and individually. Always nice to see their heart and souls ripped out.
