Days Of Our Lives

Daniel Cosgrove Making A Return To Days of our Lives!

Courtesy/NBC

Days of our Lives fans who were wishing for a return of Daniel Cosgrove to the show may have gotten their wish, but for how long, and as who?

Soap fans first reported hearing the news  of the actor’s return via a TV commercial that aired this week for the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest.

Then within the issue (on newsstands now) they reveal that the actor who played the character of Aiden Jenning,  and who is presumed dead after his confrontation with Bo (Peter Reckell), is back at the DAYS set filming and will first air in late spring.  But the questions remain:  Is Daniel back as the ghost of Aiden?  Will he appear in some newly-minted flashbacks?  Could this all be the handy work of Andre DiMera (Thaao Penghlis) and there is a Aiden doppelganger on the loose?

Is fan favorite Cosgrove back in a newly created role?  There are so many theories and not to spoil it since DAYS taped months ahead they are keeping tight-lipped for now.

So, what do you think about the news that Daniel is back filming at DAYS? Do you think its just a short “ghostly” visit to scare the hell out of Hope (Kristian Alfonso)? Do you think Aiden never truly died?  Could Daniel be filming a new role?  Share your thoughts and theories in the comment section below!

Ugh why DOOL?? Why??? Out of all the actors and characters that you could bring back why waste time and space??? Why isn’t Eve and Will still on the canvas???? How much more can this fan take???

Patrick

when DAYS is renewed…

they could bring back Kimberly and Shane Donovan

along with Will and Eve… I agree

Patrick
Patrick

Whew ! LOL

I was waiting for this thread!

I was at the grocery store…. and lo and behold… !!!! brain teaser mind blown stunner

this has to be for the long term…. duration of ALL that’s GOOD in Salem

He’s the quintessential – ideal – dreamy leading man

Phil

Good! Now bring back Kassie DePaiva since it is her who needs to be on FT!

Annie

I’ll have a seat at this table, couldn’t agree more. Love them both and miss Eve so much!

I miss Kassie more than I can say. I can do without Cosgrove. And, it isn’t because of the Aiden character; I just never liked him.
On another note. What is happening???? Kate and Deimos? Oh, my!!! I hope so. They will sizzle together.
Something else I need to say, Anne…and you’re my victim…LOL. Forgive me, my friend. You know how Abby is wary and Leary about moving into the DiMera mansion? Well, it may be that TPTB are insinuating Chad as ‘HEAD’ of the lair for a reason. Chad will be the new Stefano. Like father like son?

Honestly, I don’t care who Daniel Cosgrove plays, as long as they keep him around this time. He’s a great actor and brought real layers and complexity to the role of Aiden. He and Hope were awesome together, and I hated how the writers completely turned his character around and made him a scapegoat and attempted murderer.

If he’s a new character, here’s hoping he’ll play Peter Blake, Frankie Brady or Andrew Donovan.

Patrick
Patrick

“…He’s a great actor and brought real layers and complexity”

he does his acting with such a natural ease… and I love his take on belonging fitting in and moving in and around Salem

WOAH ! I hope he’s Peter Blake…. hummm??? this is the Andre connection? he’s a DiMera

loving this

when he’s romancing – he’s ON

when he gets riled ! he nailed IT

the connection with Chase… is going to be GOOD

WOW they have to make him Peter Blake

Richard
Richard

OMG him as Peter Blake would be awesome!!!!

Dylan
Dylan

Peter Blake, okay. But he’s about 20 years too old to play Andrew Donovan.

cassie
cassie

I agree. I can’t believe they let him go. He is an awesome actor, good-looking and I loved Hope with him. I love Rafe and think Rafe and Hope have chemistry, but they are friends not lovers. I want him to protect her but step away as wanting her. He has no kids, he should be with a woman that can give him a kids. I want him to be AIDEN, not Peter, not anyone but himself. I want the man that died to be an imposter.

Patrick
Patrick

for all the good news… and it’s revelatory still… DAYS continues to remain right up their with the 4 serial

until Kassie DePaiva WINS that best leading actress in a drama serial

ON THE LATEST ISSUE of Soap Opera Digest

picture of : Kristian Alfonso – Daniel Cosgrove – Kassie DePaiva

the byline under Kassie DePaiva : hopefully i’m recalling this correctly… but it’s close

“I was schocked… I Cried ” her exclamation at being fired

what gall and disrespect to the best of the best . Period !

for all the superlatives netted this outstanding woman…. she is always commended for her dedication to Daytime…. so… defining Kassie DePaiva as gracious, PLUS … is putting it mildly

OK.. i’m smarting from this…

I just think its a let down for all the resurgence going on in Salem….

Salute to Days of OUR Lives !

Aidens twin Caiden…real Aiden couldn’t kill Hope so Andre used mind control on Caiden to make him think he is Aiden and had him attempt to kill hope while Aiden was kept a prisoner but now Andre is using mind control on Aiden who thinks he is Caiden to make ghostly visits as Aiden to torment Hope but soon Aiden as Caiden will remember he is really Aiden but is caught by Rafe…Aiden tries to convince Rafe it was Caiden who pretended to be Aiden who attempted to kill Hope under Andres mind control and then Andre used Aiden as Caiden pretending to be Aiden to torment Hope but memories flooded back and he remembers he is Aiden not Caiden who pretended to be Aiden…Rafe remembers when he once had a double and is convinced now it was Caiden not Aiden who attempted to kill Hope as Aiden and that Aiden under mind control thinking he was Caiden pretending to be ghostly Aiden tormenting Hope when it was really Aiden not Caiden because Caiden died while pretending to be Aiden….lol

THAT IS THE STUIPIDEST CRAP IVE EVER HEARD AND I NEW THAT YOU WERE GONNA MAKE JEN A DRUG ADDICT BEFORE SHE EVEN WENT HOME FROM THE HOSIPTAL AND I NEW YOU WERE GONNA MAKE BRADY HAVE ALL THE FEELINGS OF DANIEL I AM 58 YEARS OLD I STARTED WATCHING DAYS OF OUR LIVES AROUND 8 OR 9 YEARS OLD WITH MY GRANDMOTHER BUT NOW YOU HAVE CRAZZY SCRIPS THAT DONT EVEN MAKE SENCES MOST OF THEM DONT EVEN HAPPEN IN THE REAL WORLD AND YOUVE CHANGED ACTORS SO MUCH IN THE LAST TWO YEARS THAT ITS CRAZZY (DAYS YOU NEED TO GET IT TOGETHER) OR HIRE SOME WRITERS WHO CAN

cassie

LOL! I don’t want flashbacks. I want another double like they did Rafe. Aiden is tied up somewhere

boes

I’d love to see him back but I don’t think we’ll get that lucky. I bet it’s for a few dreams, maybe for Chase, or some flashbacks when it’s explained why he did what he did.

JANET

I like Danial C. Hope he is the Aiden twin. the son could use some family. Right now he is in trouble. Not law trouble but feeling terrible. He needs some family. Of course Andre will be doing something. to get Hope.. I would rather Hope be with Danial C than Rafe. I like Rafe fine , but just not with Hope.The show is awful right now. Wash rinse and repoeart. patch made to screw that pig. At least kayla has been saved but we know Sammi the second. no thanks. I never liked EJ for this before , and now I was just hoping Patch would have waterboarded that pig., to find out where she had kayla. She is something. Hits her in the hotel, and finds a place to put her where no one sees it, or hears her screaming. ? She is strong enough to carry her away also. ?.

Jim

Chase will end up being Ava and Steve’s son…plenty of family.

That’s a BIG guess, Jimmy. Wow. Imagine if it’s true.

This is great news. Daniel Cosgrove is a terrific actor who did a wonderful job with all the layers of Aiden. I was so disappointed that Aiden was killed. How I wish TPTB would find a new part for Daniel and bring him and the fantastic Kassie DePaiva back full time.

JANET

I agree they are both good actors, and we don’t need more teens.

Not a fan of Eve. Kassie is a good actor but her daughter is gone she has no storyline now.

I really like Daniel Cosgrove and am sol glad he will be back. He was great on ATWT and Days! This should be an interesting turn of events no matter what character he plays!

Why….why… All of these returns? From death, far off places, cmon…its hella OLD I am ready for Andre to go.. He’ll bring back EJ if anyone.

Awwww, C’mon!!!! Seriously?

I love this news! I just hope it is not in the form of a ghost and permanent. I hope he is not paired with KA as she will be forever cursed by Bope fans. They will never accept her with anyone but Bo even though PR made it clear he does not want to come back. Give DC a new younger love interest. Rope can continue on with their 3 fans. Lol

cassie

They have more than 3 fans, trust that. But I don’t want them together even though i like them both.

Aiden is boring and I hope his return is short! Hopefully, a ghost!

I wondered if he would since they have featured chase so munc.

Days needs to do something to excite the show. Don’t know if this is it, but we’ll see. So tired of the boring teen stories. These teens ARE NOT Shawn, Belle, Philip, Chloe, Mimi–the actors who played these characters could actually act. This new crew is horrible–nuCiara especially. She ruins every scene she’s in. I know that’s harsh, but I am just so tired of her and having her on the show. RECAST STAT!

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

Yeah…recast stat and make her younger…bring back Lauren Boles!!!

Lauren was fabulous.

Mo…I wish that TPTB of DOOL would get rid of the so-called new teen set already!!!!! To me, they’re all BEYOND GOD-AWFUL!!!!! B-L-E-C-H!!!!!!

cassie

I think that little prissy daughter of Belle and Shawn is annoying! I can put up with Ciara because she has always been sort of strange to me. LOL!
I like Chase and Theo the most.

Mo

I also don’t like Lani–Sal can’t act. And the Salem PD is about as bad as Genoa City’s.

Not harsh, Mo…just truthful. You’re not alone.

Bringing back characters, or at least actors, when we were told it wouldn’t be happening…. gives me hope that the death of Will Horton will be reversed, and that he will be coming back with either Guy Wilson or someone new.

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

I have said myself Will isnt dead…he survived the attack but is in a coma and in a care facility outside of Salem.

Well if Aiden, Will, Serena, Paige, Bo and Daniel all end up alive on some island of Stefano’s that be fine by me. I also would like Stefano to be alive too– he can meet his maker in some way later, it just never sat right with me that Hope murdered him even under distress. Personally I always thought Stefano who cheated death a million times over the years should die in some simple way, like choking on a grape — to me that would have been poetic justice for the Phoenix– done in by a piece of fruit.

Maybe it’s either to play Aiden’s evil Twin brother (that no one ever knew about) or it’s just to do some nightmare dream sequence – who knows – it’s all speculation on our parts I suppose. At any rate, he is a good actor, have liked him since his days on All My Children so if he returns it’s a-ok with me.
Will be interesting to see what develops.

For months I would only tune into “Days” to hear Mac Carey and hopefully see a scene with Daniel Cosgrove or James Read. This is very good news and I hope it is a long term role.

Belle

I liked Aiden and hate that his character was killed.

you know…. it would be amazing… if… TPTB “really” listened

Kassie DePaiva would return and DAYS would be on solid ground

for one of my current favs to be returning to my telee… elevates once again my own endorphin

a treat restored

On a random side note here, Victor’s brother shows up claiming something about Victor’s fiancee and 30 years ago. In REAL soap time, Victor K showed up on the Salem canvas 31 years ago, in 1985. So there’s that. Second, the son of Victor K, Phillip, was rapidly aged, and graduated high school in 2002, which was 14 years ago, which would logistically make the character of Phillip 32. However, with the rapid aging of Claire, Phillip is closer to 40 now. So…..at what point 30 years ago did this mystical fiancee of Victor’s exist? 30 years ago, Victor would have been married to Kate. Or fending Vivian off. Victor has been in Salem for approximately 40 years, storyline time wise. So this brother thing just rings completely false. Maybe if it was 50 years ago, but who would care? I wish writers would have as much memory, reverence, and knowledge of the backstories of characters as we the fans have. It’s always great to hire another Emmy winner, but to saddle him with a character that makes NO sense right out of the starting gate is just unfair handicapping. cough cough Michelle Stafford cough Roger Howarth.

It’s a soap…that will explain it. simple asthat.

it may not have been 30 years to the date… when Deimos was let out

I figure he’s been out for some time

and he could have still somehow fathered Xander. !!!!

this is what I want most of all

a ready made family to complete the takeover… of the Kiriakis… and JPL’ Phillip takes the fall

Deimos reigns supreme

Just as the chemistry between Hope and Aiden was blossoming they killed him off. That was too bad, but I thought may be they did it to bring Bo back, but then they killed him off. Perhaps, they wanted to bring Hope and Rafe together to tighten up and tie together some lead actors/characters. I think Rafe and Hope may be fine and even good together- I can even see them together in the sense that they are both on the police force, etc., but I was disappointed how they dealt with Aiden as I said just when the chemistry with Hope was blooming. Days tends to do this they either abruptly end things or drag things out too long – there needs to be a balance. With that said, you start to invest in a relationship or character, and then they are gone, so it takes awhile for something else to build, and my tendency is to tune out and stop watching for awhile until something else peaks my interest. I understand that Days wants to keep shaking things up, making changes in relationships, etc. because they may be concerned that the relationships get boring, people lose interest, and they want to keep it fresh, etc., but often the timing to end something is off. I understand that some of it may be because of contractual issues, or other behind the scene logistics, but they need to have a better sense of the pulse and ‘read’ the situation, so they do not destroy something just as it is getting good or better. If you are engrossed in a relationship, don’t cut it off at the knees. I am all for trying new things, moving things around, making changes, introducing new characters, keeping it exciting to see what will happen next, so the show does not get stale, but again don’t cut it off just as you are getting invested. That would be like reading a novel, and just as the plot or a relationship starts to develop, and you want to see more of where it will go, the book is taken away from you. Then it disorients you, and takes awhile to get back in the saddle because you have to start a new. So Days let’s have some stability with plot and character growth and development with a core group of characters and storylines, and then add in some new characters, and make some nuances of change to keep all interesting, but don’t keep reinventing the wheel, or throw the baby out with the bath water. It is exhausting, frustrating, and disappointing at times. Let things sizzle to keep whetting our appetites.

I loved him! So glad to hear he is coming back; hopefully for a long time.

Sorry, but Days was great in the Fall. The writers have gotten awful this winter and adding so many characters spells the same old same old with Days decline, ruining long standing loved characters to prop up a bunch of unknowns.

Right now I find this Jan – Feb on Days its worst in 6 months.

What happened? Where is Corday’s promise of a return to caring about the characters and integrity? What happened to all that talk of great writing.

This Jan, this Feb so far is really bad writing.

cassie

The worst to me, all of the deaths and funerals. I need a mellow days for at least a month to get the killings out of my head.
When the teens showed up it took a nose dive. They messed up and need to start all over again.
These teens are not doing a good job together. No chemistry like Phil, Belle, Shawn, Mimi and Brady.
Definitely no chemistry like Nick, Will, Gabi, Sonny, Chad and Abigail. They had the ratings high when they were together.

Ces

…… And THIS is why I quit Days again. I knew I’d only last a short while @ Bo’s death. The show is horrible. Hate the recasts, teen stories and everything else. Not even Stephen & MaryBeth can keep me watching anymore. I quit for 7 years and I’m quitting again.

Elizabeth

Excuse me, but didn’t Ken Corday practically guarantee that anyone killed from the point of the 50th anniversary on would remain dead? In my mind NOTHING has been worse for soaps than the trend of killing off characters and then bringing them back. Just, lame.

BUT, maybe Hope will simply be hallucinating. At least that wouldn’t be as bad. (And I totally appreciated Haiden, JUST cannot stand the idea of the back from the dead when the character was killed onscreen!)

Mozelle

I thought it was said once an actor was dead, they were going to not bring them back. So what’s up with this, I don’t get it.

I am glad to hear this news.I think Daniel Cosgrove is a great actor.I really liked Aiden and Hope together until they had him turn into a nutcase.I was really hoping for a longterm relationship between Aiden and Hope.It is going to be interesting to see what happens when Daniel Cosgrove returns… who will his character be?
