Michael Muhney!!! I would love to see him take the role of EJ but from the sounds of it would make a great Ted…I just want him back on my screen! He would make a great addition if he has not been scooped up already!!

Michael Muhney is shooting a movie, so he’s not available.

Yes, but he never said how big or small his role is (at least that I know of). Plus, Days shoots so far ahead that maybe he would not be needed right away. It would be possible if they want him bad enough. There is always a way. 🙂

I don’t think you will see MM on daytime again Y&R, B&B & DOOL are all involved with Sony. GH would be the only possibility don’t see it happening!

I say Roger Howarth. Anything to get rid of Franco!

I like that idea. Watching Roger try to play Franco is akin to watching my yellow lab run away from the gopher he dug up. Failing that, how about Ingo Rademacher? The actor who played Jerry Jax on GH.

Sounds like EJ???? How about you go a little younger and get Tom Pelphrey…or older and go for Trevor St. John? While you are casting…Ricky Paul Goldin would make a good Bo recast! Just sayin!

Trevor St. John has stated that he’s no longer interested in Daytime Soaps.

Brandon Barash, Billy Miller, Josh Kelly, Jeff Branson, David Fumero (OLTL) or the guy that played his brother Antonio. One of the Vega brother actors would add ethnicity which Days really needs.

I agree with you, one of the Vega brothers from OLTL or the actor who played Rachel’s youngest son on AW.

I think Days should spend less time on new cast menbers and more money on new sets. The show looks so antiquated and cheap. It’s 2014 for goodness sakes. And the opening montage needs an update as well.

Scott (ATWT Fan)

The opening will never receive an update; it’s barely changed since its inception.

The various characters are like ALWAYS in that stupid coffee shop or Pub or whatever it’s supposed to be , or in the fake leaf Park, or running into each other at the Square – and occasionally at the hospital. But, you are right, man the sets are in need of a facelift – and they need to do some genuine outdoor scenes every once in a while – it gets a little monotonous. I like the show (am a fairly new viewer, only about seven months) but c’mon, I agree completely that they need to get a little more adventurous regarding sets.

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

Days used to do outdoor location shoots but i guess its Days dont do them to keep costs down…other 3 have currently done them so i guess they must have it in their budget…Days could use new sets…Jens office at the hospital is reused as Hope’s office at the police station and in other scenes which is too obvious…Back in the 90s Days had an outdoor set they used as The Salem Place Mall that looked more real than the Horton Town Square which looks more fake then Barbie’s dream house…at least they removed that white couch that sat in the square…it never got dirty…but then again it never rains in Salem and the birds never poop…lol…a when they do show the square they could at least play background noise like traffic sounds and birds chirping…jmo!!!

Mary SF

Actually the Horton Square is set up from the docks, where all outdoor scenes used to be shown for years– everything from causal meetings to New Year’s Eve celebrations, to murders— it was too funny for words how much action those docks saw— new sets would be great, but I would settle if they at least did a better job of disguising recycled sets ie– the hotel room that Kristen is holding Daniel in “St. Louis” is Nicole’s hotel suite in Salem, but with the bed turned around facing a different direction– not that is really lame– they even used the same bed and bedding— come on the budget doesn’t have room for a another headboard and some different pillows???

Johnny

I completely agree. The show needs a new opening. Keep the hourglass…keep the theme…keep MacDonald Carey…but modernize it. Start with the hourglass and as the camera zooms on it…they could show various cast members right inside the hourglass. They could do some really cool visual effects with it. Actors deserve to be featured in opening credits!

Trevor St. John! He’s only 42 which is just a few years older than the casting call says, and everyone knows he can act! I would love to see him on DAYS with his old OLTL pal Kassie DePaiva!

Michael Muhney’s shooting a moving now. PrimeTime and films are his focus.

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

Is this an E.J. recast or someone tied to the Jordan character like an ex lover from one of her alias’s or when she was Tammy Sue?

Mary SF
Mary SF

I doubt they would recast EJ so soon, but they might be needing a new anti hero for the show to take over the role of someone who is nasty but has a reason to be. My bet is “TED” is a test character, if audiences like him, they will flesh him out to take over as the new bad boy who needs a good woman to change him into someone noble–like Hope did for Bo, Kayla did for Steve, Jennifer did for Jack, etc. As for being tied to Jordan, if this is truly a short term character then okay, that could work, but if they want this character to have long term potential tying him to another newbie might backfire.

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

Whoever it is i hope he is good and not another person to come between Jen and Danial…maybe he could be someone who knows Theressa…still Jordan and Ben use use a little more action…

Kim

Isn’t this a recurring role?

Johnny
Johnny

I don’t care who they hire as long as this character seeking revenge has a valid reason and a point for being on the canvas unlike the last similar character of Liam. That just seemed like a hastily made up character and story designed solely to see the two former Mike Kasnoff actors from ATWT on screen together. And while we are at it…talking about pointless stories….this can NOT be all there is to the Jordan story and if it is then I am seriously disappointed in these writers who are usually so good!! You don’t bring on a popular actress…saddle her with one of the least connected, least popular males on the show…offer up a year long build up to a blockbuster pay off…and then deliver a hillbilly from the Ozarks. This show had the opportunity to have Jordan be ANY connected character from the past…any long lost Brady or Horton…having her be Lil Tammy Sue is a big letdown.

Mary SF
Mary SF

It was always my hope that Jordan would be Hope’s and John’s baby that they had while they were Princess Gina and the Pawn. I thought while they were those persona’s because they would be afraid Stefano would kidnap or take the child they gave the child to someone to raise and that is why she had so many identities — and then when they were returned to Hope and John they forgot about the child, which would explain why they never searched for her. O well, what a shame they didn’t go in that direction– it would have given Hope a story while Bo was MIA and could have kept John in town.

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

They could still go there…Clyde isnt Jordans biological father…and the woman whom Jordan thinks is her real mother couldve worked for Gina and given the baby to raise as her own?

Johnny
Johnny

See…..fans often would make better writers then the writers!! As much as I dislike that era when Stefano raped Hope and had John having sex with her…at least if Jordan was that character it would come out of history…it would integrate her into the very core of the show. That’s a very creative twist Mary…one I hadn’t thought of. I had her as a recast Stephanie, or a recast Cassie, or maybe Sandy Horton’s daughter….someone like that. Days has told the brother/sister with troubled pasts many times before…Steve and Adrienne, Emilio and April, Austin and Billie, Rex and Cassie. I think the writers just wanted Chrishell on the canvas and had NO idea whatsoever what her past would be, so in taking a year to reveal it, they had time to think of something and make us like her. But I still say get her out of Rafe’s orbit. Rafe sucks the life out of all his scene partners and leading ladies. I don’t understand why that character is still on the show. He is connected to no one and lingered in a hospital bed for the better part of a year. I think Brady and Jordan should get together!! Let Brady have a normal relationship for once!! Eric Martsolf is hilarious at playing a whacked out addict, but he is also very good as the stand up (as opposed to falling down lol) good guy.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Yes, they could still go there. But, while in the guise of those personae (John and Hope, that is), Jordan would be Stefano’s and Hope’s child….really twisted twist. Obviously, I am not an expert on this soap as you all are. But I did make myself somewhat familiar with its history.
Through all this, Stefano never thought it could be his child, so thinking it was John’s, Mary’s theory makes a lot of soapy sense.

4ever DAYS
4ever DAYS

I often thought that! Like jimh said, they can still do that. Good storyline!!!

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

They could always find out later that Jordan is a long lost Horton and was stolen and raised by Clyde and his wife…maybe Sandy Horton had a daughter and was told the child was stillborn…Sandy had a breakdown and remains in a mental hospital…there are other Hortons out there we never here about: Tommy, Sandy, Steve Olsen, David Banning and a few others…would be nice if they would bring back the actor who played Steve…Stephan S. who also played Cass on AW for many years and have him be Jordans real father and a new love interest for Kate…but i do like Marys idea better and it would work best…

Johnny
Johnny

I like that Jim. Who didn’t love Cass from Another World?? I was not even a thought in anyone’s head when he was on DAYS but I knew he was. And what a strangely sexy seductive couple Kate and him would be…..lol…..I am laughing at the possibilities…Kate with her head bob and her biting her lip….they both have dark hair……Jim you come up with the most outrageous ideas…but when they work….you nail it!!!!!!!!

Yes jimh, I would like to see Julies brother. I’m a long time viewer whom has never seen him! I’ll keep my fingers crossed for the 50th!!!!!

Reagan

I hoped that Jordan was some how related to Kate, giving a twist to Kate hating her so much. And yes, it would have been awesome if she was some how related to Julie’s family that is never mentioned. Agree that they missed a good opportunity here, yet we know Days. Just like they decided one day that Daniel do-good was related to Maggie, one day Jordan will turn out to be someone’s long lost child.

Michael Muhney or Brandon Barash

I would like to see Blake Hood back on a daytime drama, unless they would think he was too young for the role— or Y&R should bring him back as Kyle, since their last Kyle was a bust.

Jimmy
Jimmy

A bust? Try an epic failure! Hartley Sawyer was awful in the role, he was the worst recasting choice Y&R has made in recent history. I wasn’t fond of the new Abby when she was first airing but man, HS was SO much worse! Blake Hood fit the role of Jack’s son perfectly, he even looked like Peter Bergman… How on Earth Y&R found such a terrible replacement, or why they chose to recast in the first place, is beyond me.

Scott (ATWT Fan)

Michael Muhney (ex-Adam, Y&R) would be perfect for the role, as it’ll likely bump up to a contract status, especially with him in the role.

Clive Robertson who played Ben on Sunset Beach would be perfect

Most likely that won’t be the real name– often they use fake names to disguise to the press and public the role they are really casting for.

I dont see him leaving that show…plus did you know he already played on Days many years ago!!!

CeeCee
CeeCee

Forever Billy !!!! He can play any role….good, bad, mediocre. Roger Howarth…yes; Jean Paul L. …absolutely. But, please not Cameron Mathisons or Don Diamont.
Why not someone young? I appreciate the older cast but this show needs fresh romance. Let this new character be the son of the betrayed man who swoops onto Salem to avenge his father.
In doing so, he becomes mesmerized by a girl/woman completely losing himself within her charms and derailing from his purpose. JJ and Paige are sooo very boring and the more mature couples are just that…. I’d love to see couples in their 20’s or so, with a good, solid relationship. That is wishful thinking on my part. I am young, but even I think there’s way too much bed-hopping on soaps.

4ever DAYS

Don Diomont (spelling?) played Carlo forenzo (spelling?) on DOOL around 1985. His character was after the older Liz Chandler Curtis (Gloria Loring). I can remember their theme song…Bruce Springsteen’s “I’m on Fire”.

Sony controls Days, too. So no role for Michael Muhney on it of any kind. You just dont get it that hes burned a lot of bridges with his behavior.

Maybe Jeffrey Vincent Parise, who played. CARLOS on #GH. He is AWESOME! He has GREAT PRESENCE and he’s very good-looking, sexy.. He has quite a following now and I don’t think he’s going back to #GH. At least Ron Carlivati said on Twitter, that his story line is finished. Hmmmm…

Tom Polar

I don’t know how old Billy Miller is but he has done impressive work on other shows, and maybe he is trying to steer his career away from soaps – but, he would be a very viable candidate for the role.

I think why there asking for a bit older guy is because chad demurs is coming back in sept.
Also Nicole’s hotel room is where Daniel is . I had no idea hopes office was jens as well.

James Franco would be a good role on days of our lives as the new guy “ted”. He is a great actor and would be really good.

DAYS Susan Seaforth Hayes Talks On Her Daytime Emmy Nomination For Julie and Doug’s Emotional Storyline

When you think Days of our Lives, what would it be without the legendary Susan Seaforth Hayes (Julie) and her real-life and on-screen husband, Bill Hayes (Doug Williams)?

This past Emmy season, the beloved duo got a chance to shine, when they were put through a ‘heartbreaking’ predicament – Julie’s heart gives out, she is in need of a transplant, and things take a turn for the worse.

What would life be like for Doug without his Julie? How would she say goodbye to him? Fans clearly felt the sentiments overflowing from this real-life duo capturing the essence of their characters in such a raw and realistic way. So much so, that Susan landed a Daytime Emmy nomination in the Outstanding Supporting Actress category for her work.

Already a Lifetime Achievement Award recipient along with her husband, Bill back in 2018, will Susan finally get an award for her acting for her decades of beautiful work on the long-running NBC soap opera? Fans will need to tune-in to CBS on Friday, June 26th to find out with the virtual presentation of the 47th annual Daytime Emmy Awards.  But for now, here is our conversation with Susan.

Photo: NATAS

Congratulations on your Supporting Actress nomination.  You have been racking up a lot of these recently, having been nominated in the same category two years ago, and also receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award along with your husband, Bill Hayes at the 45th annual Daytime Emmys in 2018.

SUSAN:  It’s really nice to be nominated, because I’ve had a few gap years.  I’ve had, what? 25 gap years between the recent nominations.

What scenes did you ultimately chose that landed you the nomination?

SUSAN:  I submitted when Julie dies.  I submitted the farewell montage scenes with Bill Hayes, and they were very moving to us… and we’ll see.  I did not submit anything snappy, or bitchy, or hysterical.  I’ve lost against hysterical every time.  Comedy has never worked.  So, I am going to try the heart and soul of soup opera: not bitchiness, but loss.

Photo: JPI

Can I ask how you got through those scenes with Bill, because it was so touching?  I don’t know how you did it.

SUSAN:  It was very difficult.  I mean, these are the things that make us so connected to the characters and the show.  This is a place where we can show the public what love means to us, which is everything.

They were beautiful scenes.  Do you remember when you did them, if you felt good about them at the time?

SUSAN:  No… no.  I didn’t know.  Everyone on the set seemed happy.  We are blessed to have feedback from out producers now, and they didn’t say, “I think you can do it better,” and, “Another take,” not that we would have anyway, because there is never time to do another take.

Photo: JPI

How did you find out that you were nominated? 

SUSAN:  One of the producers, Randy Dugan called me, or I wouldn’t have found out for a couple of days,

What are your thoughts on this being a virtual Daytime Emmys ceremony because of COVID-19?  We don’t know anything about will play out yet or what that will look like, but it is back on network TV.

SUSAN:  It’s going to be a wonderful surprise.

So, if they have the shot of the nominees, do you think you’d be dressed in comfortable clothes or more formal?

SUSAN:  Well, I’d certainly wear my best earrings if I were at home, yeah.  If my grandson can arrange us to get on the internet (we have a grandson living on our property, and he’s our live-in techy), we will get dressed up, and sit there, if that’s the way to do it.

DAYS did very well receiving 22 overall nominations and a lot of your co-stars got nomination as well.

SUSAN:  Yes, an excellent year for nominations for our show.

How many times have you been nominated now? 

SUSAN:  This makes six.

Photo: IMDB

Would it mean a lot to you to get the award?

SUSAN:  The Lifetime Achievement meant a lot.  It wouldn’t be bad to win this year.  I’ll say that.  It would be sweet for the show, since I am now the oldest living cast member of the original family – the original, original.  I’m not the original Julie, but close enough.  So, I think that would be some validation for the longevity of this original storytelling.  People look at the show and say, “Are you part of the DiMera family or the Brady family?”  I say, “I’m part of the Horton family!”

What did your husband Bill say when he found out you were nominated?

SUSAN:  (Yells) Billy, what did you say when you found out I was nominated?

BILL:  Yay!!!

SUSAN:  That’s about right. (Laughs)

Photo: JPI

What a guy!

SUSAN:  I know!  What a guy, what a guy, what a guy!

I was really happy to see your name among the other well-deserving nominees.

SUSAN:  I know you are because I know you care.  Who knows what will happen? It isn’t going to ruin our lives you know, one way or another.  But it was very nice to receive this acknowledgment from my peers.

So, are you glad Susan received a nomination for her work in her emotional storyline? Do you think she should finally receive the Emmy for her performances? Comment below.

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

As one would expect, limiting contact, social distancing, regular temperature checks, ways to handle props, and a COVID-19 compliance officer for all productions are part of the proposal.   As well as virtual writers room meetings, avoiding filming on-location as much as possible and filming in front of large audiences.

So, glad to know that this major step has been taken to try to get production back on track in Hollywood and New York? Comment below.

DAYS Chandler Massey Chats On His Bittersweet Daytime Emmy Nomination

He’s won three Daytime Emmys in the Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series three years in row in 2012, 2013 and 2014, and now Chandler Massey is going for gold for the second time in his career in the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series which in a field where he is competing with two co-stars from Days of our Lives among others.

Massey has long been a stand out performer, giving nuanced and emotional portrayals in the angst-ridden life of Will Horton and the love of his life, Sonny Kiriakis (Freddie Smith).

Back in February of this year, DAYS fans learned that Chandler and Freddie had taped their last episodes, and since the NBC soap tapes more than 6 months ahead of air, that the two will still be on the air into the fall.  That has made this moment of recognition for Massey all the more poignant.

Michael Fairman TV talked with Chandler to get his reaction to the news that he is once again a Daytime Emmy nominee, and here’s what he had to say about it all.

Photo: JPI

 

I thought it was great that you received another Emmy nomination.  What do you think?

CHANDLER:  Yeah.  I thought it was pretty great too, actually.   I was surprised.  I wasn’t keeping up on when they were announcing the nominations.   I was thrilled that Wally (Kurth) and Paul (Telfer) also got nominated too in the same category.  So, hopefully, DAYS, has a decent shot to take it home.

What did you end up submitting that ultimately landed you the nomination?

CHANDLER:  I went with some scenes that aired on December 16th of last year (I just looked that up), where Will basically breaks up with Sonny when Sonny comes to visit him in prison.  I liked those because they were sort of subtle.  I just found myself drawn in when I watched it, and it wasn’t big or dramatic, but it felt like two real people sharing their pain.  So, that’s why I chose it.

Photo: JPI

I remember those.  Those were heartbreaking because he had to get Sonny to let him go.

CHANDLER:  Yes.  He said he has a new prison boyfriend, and that he’s doing really well in prison, so he doesn’t want to be tied down. (Laughs)

You’ve had Freddie Smith as your scene partner for so much of your run on DAYS.  What did he give you in those scenes that helped you, or even further enabled the performance that you gave?

READ MORE

CHANDLER:  Freddie always gives everything.  He is a consummate professional, so he really commits every time.  I think it is more that we are just so comfortable with each other that we are not afraid, and that there is no hesitation between the two of us, so we just are able to do the work.  We usually know we are there to listen to, and support each other. in the scenes.

Photo: NATAS

Was your entire submission from the prison scenes or did you include something else?

CHANDLER:  It was just that.  I know I could have included something else, but I like to keep it sort of short because I feel like as a judge, I know within a few minutes.  It’s not that I get bored, but it really only takes a scene or two, and then, you’re like, “this is something special.”  You can recognize it pretty quickly.

So, you have won three Daytime Emmys. This is your first nomination in a few years, right?

CHANDLER:  Yeah, I didn’t get nominated the year before.  I had a gap year… to my family’s great shame. (Laughs)  They were not pleased with me.

Photo: JPI

This is your second nomination in the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Daytime Drama Series category.

CHANDLER:  Yes. I was nominated in ‘Supporting’ for the first time when I came back to DAYS, and then submitted for “Lead” the next year, didn’t get nominated, and then went back to ‘Supporting’.  I learned my place.  I went back to ‘Supporting’ for this year.  (Laughs)

It’s such a game though, right?  .

CHANDLER:  Yeah, you’ve got to be smart.  I just thought, “What the heck?”  Freddie and I were like, “Maybe there’s a shot that if we pick different categories, we can both get nominated,” but then, after that didn’t work, I said, “Screw that… going back to ‘Supporting”

Now, you’ve been through Emmy night before, and this is obviously going to be a virtual Emmy’s.  Now, if they did a six-shot of all of the nominees, what would you wear?  Would you be dressed up?  Would you be casual?  What would you see yourself doing?

CHANDLER:  That’s a good question. I think maybe… I’ll do a little of both.  I’ll go the middle ground.  I’ll be in my finest bathrobe, a silk bathrobe so it’s casual but also still sort of fancy.

DAYS Chandler Massey Chats On His Bittersweet Daytime Emmy Nomination

There you go.  (Laughs)  Is this nomination all the more special for you in that you are no longer working at DAYS? 

CHANDLER:  Oh, totally.  Every year is special, but you know, I’m not on the show anymore, so it’s a nice reminder that the work that I did had an effect on people, and it won’t be forgotten for at least a few more hours.

Photo: JPI

I saw the fan outcry and show of support for you and Freddie, when viewers got wind that you were exiting the series.  It was sad and heartwarming at the same time.  The WilSon fans are so behind you guys.

CHANDLER:  Yeah, if only they knew what horrible people that we were in real life, then they wouldn’t be this way, but thankfully… (Laughs)  Yeah, it’s really nice, but it is sad.  I started in 2009, and that was over 10 years ago, and nothing lasts forever.  I had a really, really great run, and so did Freddie.  I am very satisfied and don’t feel jipped, or like, I was entitled to anything more than I got.

Courtesy/NBC

Obviously, your co-nominees, Wally and Paul you worked with many times.  What can you say about them?

CHANDLER:  I think that both men deserve definitely to get second and third place.  (Laughs)  I have known Wally for a while now.  I love him.  I think his work is phenomenal.  I think he is really, really underrated.  Paul, I don’t know as well, but I think obviously his work speaks for himself.  If only he were physically attractive, I think that would really, really help his career.

Photo: JPI

I know, it’s a shame.

CHANDLER:  Unfortunately, he is kind of schleppy, you know?  (Laughs)

Photo: JPI

Did Freddie reach out to you after you received the nomination?  

CHANDLER:  Oh yes, he sent a text congratulating me, and we talked about it.  It was nice.  I feel like our stories are so intertwined, the scenes we submit are mostly with each other.  So, it’s really kind of a shared accolade.

So, will you be rooting for Chandler to cap off his career on DAYS with an Emmy win on June 26th during the virtual ceremony on CBS? What did you think of the nominated scenes he submitted? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
