The cat is out of the bag.  Marie Wilson has been back in Salem, and taping brand new episodes of Days of our Lives, but not as Bree, the woman from Aiden’s (Daniel Cosgrove) past who we saw earlier this year!

This time around on the long running NBC soap opera, this former As the World Turns favorite will play the role of Summer.  And Summer has quite the past it seems!  According to the casting breakdown originally posted by Soap Opera Digest, Summer was described as “a passionate loner who has been in and out of institutions and is a small-time thief.”

Wilson took to her Twitter account on Thursday when the news was revealed stating:  “I’m so excited to finally share this with you all!”

Wilson will first be seen in her new role sometime next year, since DAYS tapes six month in advance.

So, who do you think Summer will mix it up with in Salem come 2016? Glad to have Marie back on DAYS? Comment below!

    She will be hired by Kate to model Teresas clothes she is designing and just as Teressa thinks she has another chance with Brady, Summer comes between them…maybe an old girlfriend of the returning Philip…no, im kidding,…not sure ill care for this character no matter who plays her unless her character is better developed and written than Serena was…hope Summer isnt into elephants…lol

      I’m still drunk from playing the drinking game from anytime someone mentioned elephants on days. That damn statue got more airtime than some people did! Gave a whole new meaning to the phrase “the elephant in the room”!

        Can we at least allow Lucas time to mourn his son?

    Why get rid of people just to hire more? Paige certainly could have been saved and decent story written for her. Will could have been recast and had another personality transplant.

    They should have killed Paul off instead of Will.

      Paige should have been saved as a young heroine for future generations…i wouldve settled for a Will recast but i seen improvement in Guy Wilson over the last few weeks…he might have been able to make the character his own had he stayed just a little longer…Days had bad boy JJ and other established young characters like Paiges friend Daphne and JJs friends Rory and Bev—they should used these characters in youthful storylines insread of aging Ciara ect. and bringing in other newbies!

      Amen! Change doesn’t always mean better or more exciting or make up for lack of good writing.

      I agree, Paul needs to go. I liked Paige. They didn’t give her a chance to really get totally settled !!!

        Me too Elaine, I loved Paige so much. In the beginning I hated her character. But all of a sudden, I was rooting for Paige. She is a terrific actress. I hope they fire Kiki on General Hospital, and hire True O Brien ex Paige as the New Kiki Jerome.

    I love Marie! She has such a natural warm presence on screen. Hopefully she will not be another Madison/Serena…that is…a good actress wasted in a pointless role.

    I find it interesting that the character breakdown makes a point of mentioning that Summer has been “in and out of institutions.” I wonder if she turns out to be the friend Gabi was delivering a letter for.

    I love Marie Wilson – I wish she would head over to ” Y & R”!!

    Isn’t Summer short term also? She was when they announced they were casting for her.

    I only know this actress from her stint on ATWT. I didn’t care for her.

      I agree Barbara from Atlanta she was one of the worst recast as Meg Snyder along side Roger Howarth the recast Paul Ryan who takes the same character from soap to soap and Kelly Menighan Hensley as the perpetually crying Emily Snyder another recast but much better one..but that girl was in tears every other day…LOL

        I was so …. in love…with Melanie Smith ie: 1997-2000

        she left… ??? befuddled me… for…. ? greater pasture?

        so be it… she married and to this day still is

        it took me a long while… to accept Kelly Menighan Hensley

        she’s bedding Jon Hensley

        that’s all that matters

        Thanks. I agree with the others that you named. I didn’t like them either.

        I never got use to the “new” Emily. Almost 2 decades after the part was recast with Menighan, I always thought about the prior actress, Melanie Smith, every time that Emily appeared. Smith was great in the role; she even looked like she could be Marie Masters’ (Susan’s) daughter. I never bought Menighan as Emily.

        I was a huge ATWT fan for its first 35 years. I have a less favorable opinion about its final years. It always seemed to me that the producers/writers intentionally “killed” ATWT through horrible decisions (writing, recasts, new characters).

        Fair or not, I associate certain actors (such as Marie Wilson and the others you named) as being a part of the “killing” of ATWT. I, for one, don’t care to watch them in anything else. I had my fill of this folks as ATWT died.

    I’ve never cared for this actress in any role that I’ve seen her in-I don’t think we need any new characters on canvas. Let’s focus on the characters that we have in town already. Some, we hardly see now!

    The character sounds like a Jordan repeat.

EastSiders Season 3 Starring Van Hansis and Kit Williamson Kickstarter Campaign Underway!

EastSiders is on its way back for season three, which is great news since the LGBT series starring former As the World Turns star Van Hasis (Ex-Luke) as Thom and creator/writer/producer Kit Williamson as Cal.

Over the last few seasons, the funny, poignant, and extremely well-written series tells the tale of a couple who go through the struggles of their relationship while living in Silver Lake, California.

With many twist and turns and featuring a supporting cast that includes: Constance Wu (Fresh Off the Boat)Brianna Brown (General Hospital, Devious Maids, the upcoming Dynasty), Stephen Guarino (Happy Endings, I’m Dying Up Here), Willam Beli (RuPaul’s Drag Race, Nip/Tuck) Traci Lords (Crybaby, Zach and Miri Make a Porno), Matthew McKelligon (You’re Killing Me), Jonathan Lisecki (Gayby) and John Halbach (Producer, EastSiders), the series third season looks to be one of its most intriguing yet.

This time Thom and Cal (Hansis and Williamson) end up on the great American road trip after moving from L.A. to the Big Apple and then trying to get back home! The journey home to Silver Lake was shot on-location in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, South Dakota, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Oregon, Nevada and  California over 35 days last fall.

The production has now launched their Kicktstarter campaign to finish up the series and is hoping for some funding for additional shoot days, and post-production costs. The campaign is set to run until June 6th, by which time the producers must have attained their goal of $60,000, or if you contribute and they have not met their goal, it is refunded. (more…)
