He’s a decade older but how about Kamar who played Antonio Vega on OLTL…

Kamar could still fit that I think– depending on who he is paired with.

That name is just for casting…it doesnt mean they will use it…kind of like a movie’s working title before they decide on an actual name they will use!!!

Brandon Barash, but he may be a little young.

Brandon is 34, so he’s close enough in age, but he looks younger.

I’ve thought that Brandon Barash would make a good Andrew Donovan, Theresa’s brother who we never hear mention of. Or he could be on of Sonny’s brothers. He could be more like the old school Victor since the K’s and Dimera’s are dying off. But another unconnected character… 🙁

At 48, he’s a little old. But I’d love to see him playing someone on ANY soap!

In Greek mythology , Ares is the god of war (Mars in Roman myth.). He is typically symbolized by, shield, helmet, dog, chariot, violence etc…..he is an Olympian, afterall. If we are to go along that vein, then, this character needs to be strong physically, emotionally and mentally. He may be a football player, a racecar driver, a pugilist, a dog (animal) trainer, a veteran…..the possibilities are endless….if one were to choose the character according to his name. So, hmmm, let’s see….John-Paul Lavoisier, Adrian Bellani, Jeff Branson, Justin Bruening, Charles Divins and Colin Egglesfield…just to name a few of my… Read more »

Someone on Facebook suggested Antonio Sabato Jr. He’s 42 and would be perfect. Sounds like this role is to be part of the DiMera or Kiriakis family.

I thought maybe one of Justin Kiriakis’ other sons, but the Hispanic doesn’t really work for that. Maybe Tony DiMera had a child we don’t know about?

Who knows how many ports Stefano has visited and how many ‘ships’ he has christened with his unholy ‘water’….anything is possible. I bet you are absolutely right, Reagan…there’s an illegitimate DiMera son skulking around looking for the father he never knew. LOL….sound familiar? Lol.

CeeCee

I must expand, Regan. Tony D. Is a possibility. But, if there is to be a new DiMera in Salem’s midst, then it would be Stefano’s spawn….as explained above. (Or Victor’s…I think Justin is too young to have a 40 year old son. Maybe?) I have only been watching for 6 years, so I am not too familiar with Tony. Was he as promiscuous and devious as his father? Was his mother supposedly Greek, or did he play the part of 100% Italian as Stefano? I can’t see how because Thaao does not have the look of an Italian at… Read more »

Yes, absolutely. How could I forget about il bello Antonio. He would fit the DiMera ideology to perfection.

Again, why can’t we get back some of the MANY veteran Days characters that are off canvas. The show practically has no Brady’s left with Sami leaving. Mary Beth (Kayla) is underused big time. Theresa and Eric are around, but Theresa has little interaction with her Brady family. Bo is gone. Shawn & his family are gone. Kimberly, Max, Frankie, etc. I won’t get in to the other familes. There are a lot of soap actors out there that aren’t working (steadily) that I would love to see on Days, provided they were an appropriate recast for some of these… Read more »

I really like Kamar de Los Reyes and David Fumero as suggestions. I also think Jordi Vilasuso would be good.

Victoria Konefal Will Be Back On Days of our Lives

This week Days of our Lives viewers saw the exit of both Theo (Cameron Johnson) and Ciara (Victoria Konefal), much to the chagrin of Cin fans everywhere! But hold on! Days head writer, Ron Carlivati revealed that Victoria Konefal will be back on-screen this summer on the NBC soap opera.

In an interview with Soap Opera Digest, Carlivati revealed: “From the moment we were coming to that point and we knew Ciara was going to exit town with Theo, we were immediately pursuing the next chapter with Victoria: When would she be available or willing to come back, and when could we tell the next chapter because I knew that would feel unfinished and be unsatisfying to a lot of people. So that’s why I’m happy to announce here that Ciara is coming back and we are going to tell that next chapter of the story and hopefully, this time, the audience will get the payoff that they’re looking for and hoping for.”

And as to just how long will Konefal who chose to go on recurring status with the show be back for her summer run, Carlivati shared: “At this point, and I can’t speak for Victoria and I can’t speak for the show, and this is not an official announcement in any capacity, but I will say at this point, there is not an end date. We are working with Victoria to keep the story going and keep Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s love story alive.”

Cin fans should note that Carlivati added, “I would encourage the audience to remember that they (Cin) have an important anniversary coming up this summer that may figure into their story, so she will be back sooner than you know.”

So, happy to know there will be more of Ben and Ciara? Where you upset to see Ciara exit the canvas with Theo? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

DAYS Jackée Harry to Appear in Final Season of FX’s ‘Pose’

You can never get enough Jackée, right? Right! The popular actress who recently made her daytime drama return in a new role on Days of our Lives as Paulina, will also be seen next month in the third and final season of the hit and groundbreaking FX series, Pose.

The final batch of episodes bows on May 2, 2021, and Entertainment Weekly revealed that Harry will be part of the last season.

In a tweet on social media, Jackée expressed: “And I’m SO relieved to finally tell you to catch me on the final season of #PoseFX  Consider me honored and over the moon!!!!””

For those who don’t know, Pose is a drama spotlighting the legends, icons and ferocious house mothers of New York’s underground ball culture, a movement that first gained notice in the late 1980s. Making television history, Pose features the largest cast of transgender actors in series regular roles, including Mj Rodriguez, Dominique Jackson, Indya Moore and Hailie Sahar, who co-star alongside Billy Porter, Angel Bismark Curiel, Dyllón Burnside, Sandra Bernhard and Jason Rodriguez. The Golden Globe-nominated drama also features the largest recurring cast of LGBTQ actors ever for a scripted series.

In the final season of Pose, it’s now 1994 and ballroom feels like a distant memory for the character of Blanca who struggles to balance being a mother with being a present partner to her new love, and her latest role as a nurse’s aide. Meanwhile, as AIDS becomes the leading cause of death for Americans ages 25 to 44, Pray Tell contends with unexpected health burdens. Elsewhere, the emergence of a vicious new upstart house forces the House of Evangelista members to contend with their legacy.

Pose was co-created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Steven Canals, who executive produce alongside Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Alexis Martin Woodall, Sherry Marsh and Janet Mock. Our Lady J is co-executive producer.

Excited to see Jackée featured in the upcoming season of Pose? Enjoying her as DAYS Paulina? Comment below.
