Familiar faces and returns has become just one element that makes Days of our Lives must-see daytime television these days.  You can now officially add Brandon Beemer’s name to that list, who has made a return to the iconic series that is celebrating its golden anniverary this week.

As fans became aware, Jason Cook (who originated the role of Shawn-Douglas Brady) came back to tape episodes of DAYS for it’s anniverary arc, and for what has been speculated as a two-month run.  Since Cook has already left the show, the series continued to write story to include Bo  (Peter Reckell) and Hope’s (Kristian Alfonso) son, and brought back Cook’s original replacement, Brandon Beemer to the role.

Beemer was seen in a cast photo at Monday’s on set cast/crew 50th anniversary celebration.  As well, Brandon was at this past weekend’s 50th anniversary party at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles.

You can expect Brandon to return on air sometime in early 2016.  Beemer follows his longtime DAYS co-star Martha Madison (Belle) back to Salem.  Madison will be back airing in episodes at the end of this month.

So, excited to hear that Brandon is back as Shawn Brady?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Why didnt Cook stay…but it doesnt bother me one way or another as long as the show remains good…hopefully, the serial killer story ends soon…its run its course imo and time to move on!

Jason Cook didn’t want to stay long-term. He says he working on other projects and wants to go into directing. I guess acting isn’t his main focus right now.

that’s a shame, I wish Jason Cook would have been open to staying for a few years. He just has this charm, this special quality to him, and seeing him back on our screens has made me want MORE of him, not Beemer. Why oh why? Days should’ve just allowed Jason Cook to pop in and out. He’s that GOOD!
Leading man material.

Sounds just like Kim-GHs Robin who prefers directing but still makes acting visits to her show…im ok with BB returning to the role…used to both actors in the role anyway…thanks for the info!

Ugh! I might have to start watching that cluster**** of a show again. Beemer has one of the most gorgeous bodies I have EVER seen … and summer is only seven months away.

Jimh, I totally agree; especially about the serial killer story ending soon. I can’t stand it! I hate seeing Abby handcuffed in that cabin with her deranged boyfriend freaking out every ten seconds. I ff through those scenes. The rest of DAYS, I love.

I always liked him and thought he was a good replacement so I’m glad to see he’s coming back. But it will seem a little weird right after Jason Cook reprised the role for the anniversary.

Well that’s cool. I’m sad that the original Shawn D. was not back for good but only two months, but at least the replacement will be a familiar face. Glad that we will have Phillip, Shawn D and Belle back.

The way I understand it is Jason only agreed to a couple month visit for which he was accommodated. Then the writers decided they wanted a longterm storyline involving Shawn-Douglas, but Jason refused to stay because he has other projects/prospects.

LOL damien he is NOT the only person who could EVER play the role. If soaps operated by that method there wouldn’t ever be long term characters if only one actor can be seen in the role. .you can count those actors and their characters on one hand who were never replaced for decades. ..OK two hands lol

DAYS is intent on just rehashing disposable characters. Why don’t they cancel first run episodes and just show repeats of old shows with the same old boring characters and tedious story lines…but hey do what you gotta do …..

No. I really didn’t like him as Shawn. I liked him on B&B, but not Days.

I never have watched B&B, but I didn’t like B.B. as Shawn. Maybe he grew as an actor and the great writing on DAYS will help us with the transition.

I am so happy to just have confirmation. Brandon is amazing and I’m glad he’s back. 🙂

I like either Shawn. They are similar enough in looks, and while Jason and Kirsten were good as young Shawn and Belle, Brandon and Martha were seamless recasts into a more mature Shawn and Belle. One of the few times where both characters playing a couple were recast and the couple remained popular. But that chick they brought on for about a month as Belle….WOW…was she frickin terrible!!!!! That was between Kirsten and Martha, and to be fair, she was forced to spout James E. Reilly’s absurd, moronic writing. That crap could be the death of many lesser actors. I… Read more »

I like both Jason Cook & Brandon Beemer in role Shawn D. Both bought different side to the role. Overall it’s matter of taste.

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.
