The long-awaited Deveraux son of Jack and Jennifer’s, JJ who was born in 2004, has now been SORAS’d and will add to the young hunk quotient in Salem!

Casey Moss has joined the cast of Days of our Lives as Jack Deveraux Jr., and he will debut on this Friday’s May 3rd episode of the NBC soap.

According to his DAYS co-star Jen Lilly in her tweet revealing the news she related, “Oh snap! My hott co-star joined Twitter! Be sure to follow @1CaseyMoss and watch his first episode of #Days Friday! pic.twitter.com/qt5CXjWYjx

So what do you think? Will Jack Jr. stir up trouble for mom Jennifer (Melissa Reeves)?  Will he have a serious chip on his shoulder now that Jack (Matthew Ashford) is dead?  Will JJ and Jen Lilley’s character have scenes together?  Lots of questions to be answered!  Let us know your thoughts!

Not too impressed with just that pic, but I’ll give him a chance.

He should be in Salem…the town needs more Hortons, and in the Horton home! My friend Jim, once pointed out the Horton clock remains at 7:10! Why dont they change it or is it there as a non working clock for decoration only?

Clocks in general are not used in soaps because scenes and shows are often shot out of sequence making it a nightmare to maintain continuity. Also depending on the soap, scenes are often stopped and redone- so someone would have to change the clock to reflect it. It too much hassle. So this clock is meant to be decoration only, and the face of it has been darken to disguise the time. The way I look at it is this— it is a family heirloom that is broken, but no one wants to throw it away, so it sits there,… Read more »

LOL…my friend Jim also has a clock on his own fireplace he uses for decoration only. He also pointed out the couch with pillows in the time square that never gets dirty…also the offices of Hope, Rafe, Marlena and Jen are the same set which was also used as an examining room. Guess we are really bored! Thanks for the reply!

I thought Abigail or Jen said he was just going by Jack now and not JJ. Glad they finally cast him and looking forward to see what they do with him.

I just love this time of year, the sun is shining, the birds are singing, a troubled youth is returning to Salem– all signs that summer will soon be here, along with the inevitable teen story line. Now I can finally pack up my winter gear and get out my flip flops.

Does Abe have any other family members? This is show becoming too boring for me. I’m glad OLTL & AMC are back.

Abe’s half-brother-in-law, Cameron. But I agree, the show is SO boring!!! I just read the recaps now, don’t even watch it.

Cameron is Abe’s brother-in-law. No half. He was Lexie’s half brother, maybe that’s where you’re confused.

He has another son, Brandon, with Nicole’s mother, Fay. And his MIL Celeste. I’d like them to bring Celeste back, but the original one, not the recast they had when Lexie died.

Glad to see him in town, but we ALL know it’ll be another Dannifer story. However, I’m just relieved it ain’t another darned love triangle that ruins a beloved character. Jack died after that awful triangle. Nicole and Chloe were demonized by it. But heck, at least we have a family member who disapproves instead of worshipping The Glorious St. DanTan. Perhaps Lucas can have more airtime. Let him and JJ team up to split up Dannifer! It would make a funny, interesting storyline!

Really not a fan of teen storylines at all and not looking forward to Jen Lilley on the show since she annoyed me with her shrieking voice on GH.

I’m enjoying Days. Not enjoying Dan and Jen, since they are uber boring together.

JJ

I so agree! I think Melissa Reeves needs to go! We need an actress to play Jen that can bring some fire like the old Jack and Jennifer days!

Mo

I like Melissa Reeves, just don’t pair her with Dan. I am a Jack fan and hate that they killed him off.

Dr. Dan is okay too, just not with Melissa. I think she’s too vanilla for him. Nothing wrong with vanilla, but not for Dan. Maybe Dan and Maxine should hook up! She’d give him a run for his money.

JJ

They need to recast that snooze fest Jennifer! Melissa Reeves is just unwatchable!! I loved her when she played younger Jennifer but can’t stand the way she is as a middle age Jennifer. I now fast forward every scene she is in! Anyone else feel this way? I can’t wait to see some new blood though!

Casey Moss was born in 2004? So he’s 9 years old? Please! LOL

JJ was born in 2004….the character, not the actor.

The Jennifer & Daniel coupling is boring as all hell. And, JJ’s resentment is not ramping up the storyline. Jennifer should just become a nun, she is always so holier than thou.

Seriously??? JJ was born in 2004…that makes him 9yrs old, yet they’ve cast a dude that’s twice that age??? C’mon!!

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Abe Goes to the Light While John Faces Off with MarDevil

Monday’s highly-anticipated episode of Days of our Lives did not disappoint. In fact, we think that this episode should be a strong contender for DAYS to consider for one of their Outstanding Drama Series submissions for next year’s Daytime Emmys.  Why? It has it all – emotional heart with Abe’s journey to and from the light, touching flashbacks, a great performance by James Reynolds, and some special effects and editing during the John (Drake Hogesytn) vs. MarDevil scenes, which also gave us a delicious performance by Deidre Hall.

At the start of the episode, Abe has flatlined after being shot as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) tries to revive him, but they are losing him.  As this is going on, Paulina (Jackée Harry), Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) and Eli (Lamon Archey) are gathered at the hospital awaiting news on Abe’s condition.  Later, Eli decides to go find out what is happening with Abe, and gets the shock of his life when he walks in on Abe flatlining, while Kayla tells him that Abe is gone.  Eli implores her to try to bring him back. He tells the others they are working on trying to save Abe, as Julie and Paulina bond, and later, Lani must call Theo and Brandon to let them know about Abe’s condition.

Julie reminisces about Abe, and how they have known each other for 40 years, our wink-wink that this is James Reynolds’ 40th anniversary episode.   Then, we see Abe has gone to the light wearing a white sweater and who should he see but his beloved late wife, Lexie.  No, it’s not Renee Jones, but an actress who delivers Lexie’s lines, since it had been previously reported that Jones was unavailable for the episode.  In scenes with the replacement Lexie, Reynolds showed us why he is an MVP of DAYS.  He acted up a storm and brought the emotion regardless of who was standing there.

 

However, longtime viewers got a wonderful surprise when flashback clips of scenes between Renee Jones and Reynolds were shown and they were some major moments in the history of Abe and Lexie’s relationship including: the moment when Abe learns Lexie’s pregnant, the moment when he is disgusted by Lexie’s betrayal when he learned of her involvement in the Zack baby switch storyline, and what she did to Bo and Hope, all because she was desperate for a child. Later, it’s the five-hankie moment of when Lexie, who was dying from a brain tumor, passes away in Abe’s arms.

After all the flashbacks, Lexie tells Abe he needs to go back and not to come with her to heaven. He has children, and people who love him and need him. Eventually, he says his goodbyes to Lexie and returns to the present, just as Kayla is about to call his time of death in the hospital room. All of a sudden, Abe’s heart begins to beat.

Photo: JPI

Kayla brings Julie, Eli, Lani, and Paulina the news that Abe will need surgery, but he will make it.  Then, Paulina and Lani make their way to see him. In another emotional moment, they tell him how much they love him (Paulina looks worried about her lie being exposed that Lani is not really Abe’s bio-daughter).  As the episode comes to its conclusion, we see the back of Lexie making sure Abe is safe and sound among the living, while signifying she is watching over him.

And if that was not enough, this episode also picked up where John had confronted MarDevil in the church, letting Satan knows he is on to him and that he is not going to win … he is going to get Marlena back.  Satan drives home the point that Marlena belongs to him now.  John is mortified as the cross on the church wall turns upside down. Later to show off his prowess and control, MarDevil turns the holy water blood red. As the scene progresses, MarDevil is jumping all over the church and showing up in different spots.

Photo: JPI

John then gets the lowdown on how Satan struck a deal with Marlena to let Doug (Bill Hayes) live if she let him in.  That is followed, by some of the back-story of Marlena’s first possession over 25 years ago, and why it happened when she was alone and very distraught.  MarDevil even goes on to say that he tried once before to regain control of Marlena during the Salem Serial Killer storyline, but it did not work out that time, because all the victims turned out to be alive.  MarDevil brings up Stefano and how he had made Marlena believe John was dead which left her vulnerable.  He goes on to relate that Doug was the gateway for Marlena’s re-possession.

Photo: JPI

MarDevil tells John what she did with Doug by committing him and how she wanted to kill Julie. John knows that Marlena can hear him and tries to bring her back, but as the devil struggles with that, ultimately, he wins and begins to show his strength to John tossing him around the church, where he is eventually is knocked unconscious and then dragged to, we don’t know where, by the MarDevil!

Throughout the scenes, Deidre Hall looked like she was having so much fun playing the devilish one in this campy storyline revisited.

So, what did you think of James Reynolds performance and his 40th anniversary episode? What was your favorite moment? Are you glad John knows for certain now that Marlena is once again possessed? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Jensen Ackles Shares Heartfelt Message on Death of ‘Rust’ DP Halyna Hutchins: “This Has Been a Tragedy of Epic Proportions”

Former Days of our Lives and Supernatural star, Jensen Ackles (Ex-Eric and Ex-Dean)  took to his Instagram over the weekend to pay tribute to cinematographer, Halyna Hutchins who was tragically killed in New Mexico, on the set of the film Rust in which Ackles co-starred with Alec Baldwin and Frances Fisher. Baldwin is also one of the producers of the film.

Last Thursday, in the initial investigation reports surfaced that Baldwin discharged a “prop gun” leading to the death of Hutchins and injuring director, Joel Souza.  Since that time it has been reported that Baldwin was told by the assistant director, David Halls, that the weapon was a “cold gun” meaning not loaded with live rounds following its preparation by the film set’s armorer, Hannah Gutierrez.  But in his affidavit statement, Halls says he was unaware that the prop gun contained live rounds when it was given to Baldwin for his scene.

The scene Baldwin was rehearsing was inside a church building at the Bonanza Creek Ranch. In new affidavit’s, it was noted that Baldwin was ‘cross drawing’ the weapon and pointing the gun towards the camera lens.

A grief-stricken Ackles shared:  “I’m not even sure where to start.  This has been a tragedy of epic proportions that we are all still processing. Earlier last week I felt compelled to tell Halyna just how awesome I thought she was. I told her how incredible I thought her camera shots were and just how exciting it was to watch her and her team work. Truly. She laughed and said thank you and gave me a hug. I’ll forever be thankful we had that moment.  She had a spunk and passion that infected the entire crew from the top down. She was an inspiration. My heart and prayers go out to Halyna’s husband, son and the rest of her family. There just aren’t enough words to express what an immense loss this is. She will be incredibly missed by all of us who knew and admired her.”

Since Hutchins’ death, a video also surfaced of Ackles discussing his concerns for gun safety on the set of Rust at a Supernatural convention in Colorado prior to the tragedy.

Jensen told the crowd: “I’ve got a 6 a.m. call tomorrow to have a big shoot-out. They had me pick my gun. They were like, ‘Alright, what gun would you like?’ and I was like, ‘I don’t know?’ and the armorer was like, ‘Do you have gun experience?’ I was like, ‘A little.’ And she’s like, ‘OK, well, this is how you load it, this is how we check it and make sure it’s safe. “So she’s like, ‘OK, I’m gonna put some blanks in there and I want you to just go and fire off a couple rounds towards the hill.’ And I was like, ‘OK.’ So I put the belt on, I put the gun there, and I walked out and she’s like, ‘Just make sure that you know, you pull the hammer all the way back and you aim at your target.’ And I was like, ‘OK, I got it.’  The footage was originally on You Tube, but now has been taken down.

The investigation remains and open and active on what occurred on the set of Rust, according to the Santa Fe New Mexico Sheriff’s office.

So, what do you think about Jensen’s tribute in the wake of the Rust tragedy? Comment below.
