With the continued social distancing being used on our soaps, we have some fun casting news to confirm. General Hospital star Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan), who happens to be the real-life husband of Days of Our Lives’ Cady McClain, will temporarily be stepping in for Matthew Ashford in order to showcase some upcoming scenes between Jack and Jennifer.

In September, news came that the former All My Children actress would replace Melissa Reeves, who had played the role since 1985. Fans were a mixed bunch in terms of the recast with some happy to see Reeves go while others weren’t happy at all.

These days, Jack and Jennifer’s relationship has hit a few rough patches, given that their daughter Abigail revealed a letter that proved Jack had slept with Kate while Jennifer had been in a coma. Of course, Gwen set the whole plot in motion and has other motives for wanting to make not only Jack’s life a living hell but Abigail’s as well. Many believe Jack could be Gwen’s father, which would explain the resentment, but even if that pans out to be true, who is Gwen’s mother?

Keep an eye out for Lindstrom in Salem as 2020 comes to an end and take a look through our photo gallery of other Days of Our Lives actors and their spouses.
