[ # ] Dick Van Dyke is doing his first soap opera!
April 21st, 2023 under Dick Van Dyke, TV Soaps

Dick Van Dyke is 97, so you would think he has done it all. He hasn’t.

This year has been full of firsts for the beloved actor. First, he appeared on The Masked Singer, which was his singing competition debut. And in the Fall, he was will make his soap opera debut on Days of our Lives on Peacock.

He will play a mysterious older gentleman with amnesia who is helped by John Black (Drake Hogestyn) and Marlena Evans (Diedre Hall).

And Van Dyke has Hogestyn to thank for the role. “Drake and I went to the same gym together. I used to kid him, ‘Don’t you have any parts for old people? C’mon get me a part,'” Van Dyke told Access Hollywood. “He took me seriously and got me a part.”

Even though he has been playing older men since his youth, this is the first time playing one that is not comedic.

I can’t wait to see Van Dyke on DOOL! Who knows, maybe he will stick around like Jackée Harry has.
