WATCH WHAT HAPPENS: DAYS Bill Hayes Makes An Impromptu Appearance On The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon!


Days of our Lives enduring and 92-year-old star, Bill Hayes (Doug Williams) got the surprise of his life when during a commercial break while attending a taping of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Hayes’ grandson spoke up to Fallon, about that Hayes long-running career at NBC and that he actually appeared on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson three times as a guest.

Bill, who was in the audience with his wife, Susan Seaforth Hayers (Julie, DAYS) and his grandson, was then invited onstage by Fallon! From there, Hayes was mic’d up and talked about his early career from being on Your Show of Shows, to the release of his hit single, “The Ballad of Davy Crockett”.   Sheryl Crow, was the musical guest up next who paid a bit of an homage to Hayes, as you will see.

I cannot possibly love this any more. Bill Hayes is a gem. He’s a love and a kind soul. I’ve had the privilege of talking to him one on one and photographing him for press, loving him as a fan, and just admiring him as an enduring actor and presence on Days of our Lives. He is happy to accept praise and admiration, but he does so with grace and humility. He’s such a professional — look at how he just settled right into that seat with Fallon. He didn’t go on and on, but he said a ton, all of it compelling and on the mark for what Jimmy and this audience would want to hear. He doesn’t hog the spotlight, but he does attract it by just his sheer presence. I adore him, and I adore Susan, and I’m so glad their grandson spoke up, because this was gold. GOLD. The man is 92 going on 54, he’s incredibly spry, and he’s a mensch on top of it all. Thank you, Jimmy Fallon, and thank you Michael Fairman, for the article.


So good to see him…

I highly recommend the documentary. It was fascinating and touching. I had no idea how much Mr. Hayes had done. Incredible life!

Wow, just wonderful to see Bill is doing so well at the age of 92…I loved the love story of Addie, Doug and Julie and if I am correct William Bell was writing DOOL which was so good at the time…

You got that right Jimh…so miss those days…


Absolutely love him! I think a lot of entertainers could take a lesson from Mr Hayes. Pure Class.


What a blessing! I’ve loved Bill and Susan Hayes for years.


Happy for Bill. Feel kinda sorry Susan was glossed over though.


Awww this is wonderful! I love Bill Hayes & really enjoy whenever he’s on #Days….he & Susan are great together. I just recently watched his amazing documentary & highly recommend it! He has had such a rich full life & is still going strong! ♡


Fabulous. Jimmy should invite him to be a guest for real! So much history.


Bill Hayes is becoming a good example of how to promote himself and daytime with his Jimmy Fallon appearance and recent online documentary of his life (free for any of those who haven’t seen it and just the right length.) I would love to see more Classic Daytime stars out there promoting daytime.

The Tonight Show needs to really schedule people like Bill Hayes and other icons of the industry. They helped create television and the industry.


Great to see BH and his wife.




As always, Bill and Susan are TRULY CLASSY PEOPLE ALL THE WAY!!!!!
