According to The Salem Spectator via Jane Kunitz, the mother of  twins Aaron & Griffin Kunitz who play Johnny DiMera on Days of our Lives, the boys are also leaving Days of our Lives since their TV parents Alison Sweeney (Sami) and James Scott (EJ), are leaving the show this month as well.

Saying “it’s been an amazing 5+ years”, she also tweeted what the next projects for her boys: “Griffin will be in a few episodes of Dog with A Blog which is a kids Disney show…Aaron has a DISH commercial coming out in May.”

The Kunitz twins made their debut on Days of our Lives back in January 27, 2009.  There has been an outpouring of love, support and congrats for a job well-done on their Twitter account for the twins, since the news broke of James Scott’s departure from the series, as well as the kids.

So, what do you think about the news that Aaron and Griffin are wrapping up at DAYS?

I have to add in…. hidden gems…. see them when we get them T (Tad) he works the bar, his eyes have a life of their own… they just sparkle, plus he’s a good character actor… they should feature him some story Anne: for all her one-dimensional Mean streak…. she carries herself… full load, in charge, and doesn’t give a cahoots who stands taller… would love some back story and flesh her character… she has the chops Bev : could be the nuSami in the making… the ripe Talent… to bitch and mean it up…. to get what she wants…… Read more »

You’re so right about Bev! Whilst she’s getting a bit over the top with her clinging to JJ, she’s been such an entertaining character! All the makings of someone we could grow to love, just like Sami way back when… Would love to see her entangled in another storyline.

Hoping so! Maybe Lucas will get more story now that EJAMI is not on steeling all the screen time.

Since the actors who plays Johnny’s parents are leaving it makes sense that the twins who play Johnny will also be leaving.With or without EJ with her i’m thinking when Sami leaves she’ll take her younger kids with her.However if Lucas stays on the show Allie might stay with him but that might be to be determined.

don’t you just hate this : diminishing screen time…. I mean, for Lucas… to interact

Sheryl was so good for him : I think Sami…. who would defer… for once… a child… and give, from her heart… to Lucas

wouldn’t that be a bang up job… to see

sad…. well up emotion… for Sami

The boys were a great addition to the Ejami family . They are great actors and will go far. I will like to see them on another program or movie they are very good. Maybe be with Alison or James or together. Good luck to two talented little boys.

it’s the truth… the one time… I say… give these STARS a shot at prime time… complete with these twins….

Most of the time soaps have children around as part of the scenery– they are seen but rarely heard from– but once in a while one comes along who can actually act and then if they are lucky the show will give them a chance to shine. These boys obviously have talent and certainly were given more screen time than the little girl(s) playing their fraternal twin sister Allie. And speaking of Allie why did they cast a girl who looks so much older that her brother– it drove me nuts– but I digress. I wish these boys well —… Read more »

SO NOBODY NOTICED THAT IT SAYS JAMES SCOTT IS LEAVING AS WELL?/ NOW THATS A CRIME

People already knew about James leaving at this point when his TV sons (Aaron & Griffin…aka…Johnny DiMera) made their announcement about leaving the show with their TV parents this month. Alison’s announcement was in January; James’s announcement was last Friday (before the boys’ announcement); and the boys announcement was a couple days after James’s announcement. Looks like their mother may have waited until James made his announcement about leaving and then she made the boys’ announcement about them leaving after their TV dad (James/EJ) did his.

I will miss them so much..let’s hope we saw them pretty soon in other projects, they are so cute and natural. Love you Aaron and Griffin !

I love them. They’re adorable and I’ll miss them, but it makes sense for them to leave too. It’s not like Stefano would be raising the kids. Guess Johnny will return in a few years as a teenager.

I wonder about Ally. I guess Sydney will be gone too, not that we see her much.

Why are so many characters (actors) leaving the show. Is this a sign of bad times ahead for DOOL. It will be devastating if DOOL is added to the list of axed shows. Why did they hire DC as Aiden (the lawyer). Every soap that hired him went down the drain in a year or two. I still hate that ATWT killed off Reid to give Chris a second chance at life; and broke up Luke and Reid to prop up Katie and Chris at the end of the show.

I hope not Alison Sweeney : is doing the same thing that Eileen Davidson did… taking time off to be a mother I just can’t fathom… that… AS would leave entirely… and that a respite…. from the grind… is all thats needed… and that she’d step right back up to the plate… when she’s ready… I certainly hope this it would seem… like James Scott decided to take time off… I think, these two… know… how invaluable they are to the canvas and production I would just love it… if they recast.. Sami… for Kelly Sullivan… just to give her… Read more »

So going to miss Sami & EJ, James & Alison, and Supercouple Ejami’s family together and all these little ones that play their children. DAYS really lucked out and found some good child actors and matching looks and features to their t.v. parents James & Alison/EJ & Sami. But I’m so happy for all of them getting to get away from daytime soaps and getting to get away from some of the craziness and the crazy people in the viewership at times and not having to be used as game pieces between so many ships for their t.v. parents and… Read more »

DAYS Alison Sweeney Previews the New EJami

Coming up on Days of our Lives, Dan Feurerriegel take over the role of EJ DiMera on-screen, and the character is making quite the timely, or untimely return to Salem now that Sami (Alison Sweeney) has been hitting the sheets with her ex-husband, Lucas (Bryan Dattilo).

Feurerriegel is stepping into the coveted role of EJ made soap-famous by James Scott, who left the series back in 2014 and never returned.

Now the question is can Sweeney and Feurerriegel strike soap gold with their re-imagined duo known as “EJami”?

 

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Alison Sweeney opened up about the casting, working with Dan, and the future of EJami sharing: “To be honest, I was nervous when I heard they were recasting EJ.  That’s a big role to fill, I mean, James Scott was definitely a fan favorite and EJ is such a memorable role in the story and certainly in Sami’s life.”

Sweeney said of sharing scenes with Feurerriegel, “Dan has been fantastic. I’ve really enjoyed working with him. He clearly understood the importance of the task ahead.”

As for what fans of EJami may be in for, Sweeney noted:  ” I hope those ‘EJami’ fans see the couple they were so connected to, but of course, in a new, different way.”

So will you be giving the new EJami a chance? Looking forward to Dan’s debut, or are you Team Lumi all the way? Share your thoughts via the comment section below. But first check out this week’s promo for DAYS.

DAYS Billy Flynn Opens Up To Maurice Benard About His Battle with Addiction on All-New ‘State of Mind’

In a terrific episode of Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) State of Mind You Tube series, the actor welcomes another one of the best actors on daytime, Days of our Lives star Billy Flynn (Chad DiMera, Days of our Lives).

What made this so compelling was Billy Flynn’s ability to talk openly, frankly, and with great understanding about his battles with addiction which he notes have been alcohol, drugs, and the cycles he has found himself in within his life and how he was able to break free of them, and the work he continues to do to keep him from falling back into them.

Flynn shares how much of his adult life was greatly impacted by his childhood, and explained to Benard, how he acted out when he was younger. He also shares how his addiction caused issues for awhile with his job at Days of our Lives.

This episode is a powerful one to watch for anyone struggling with issues of addiction, dependency, suicide, having problems at work, and trying to not self-destruct, which so many of us do, once we seemingly get what we what or while we are trying to obtain it.

Bravo to Billy and Maurice for bringing this forward and to the audience.

Watch Billy’a visit on State of Mind below, followed by a bonus segment where Flynn asks Benard some ‘hard-hitting’ questions.

What did you think of what Billy shared with Maurice? Comment below.
