Put on your casting director hats, Days of our Lives fans!

The show is currently seeking an actor 30-39 to play the role of “Alex”, who is said to be confident and quite dashing!

The role is set to begin taping this March.

According to Soap Opera Digest, the character description reads: “Alex has spent the last ten years traveling the world and amassing a small fortune. His ambition grew and his success in the marketplace has given him an enough of a cocky confidence to come to Salem with an agenda to challenge his family for control of the business.  When it comes to women, Alex can be a bit of a playboy like his dad used to be.”

Now if the role on the casting call is really “Alex”, could he be the son of Justin ( Wally Kurth) and Angelica Deveraux, and thus Sonny’s (Freddie Smith) half -brother?  Time will tell!

So, which actor from daytime or primetime TV would you suggest for the role of “Alex”? Let us know your thoughts via the comment section below!

I am so disappointed in what this turn, means; for Leann Hunley

she’s the one thrown to the curb… for Rafe and Hopes get out of jail free card

so not fair… or real

OK…i’m 3 weeks behind.. not matter

when I keep up with posts and SOD

Kristian Alfonso and Galen Gering.. as good as they are.. are not REEL

are not what DAYS should focus

Leann Hunley… as a DiMera .. along with

Kate / Andre/ Chad/ Abs / Thomas

BEST of

this is what jump starts Salem

Yeah, Leann Hunely was so poorly used…she needed something better…hate when a good actress is so terribly wasted!

I am fine with new characters coming on the show, but it would be nice to see a few of them come on without having a dark side or a connection to another character and we have to wonder who it is for months. The Valerie Grant storyline is moving at a snail’s pace. Why should be care that she has a son?

The character of Alex should be a character like Daniel or EJ, one that is a true leading man. It seems the show has missed the boat on that for a few years with the exception of Chad.

Mo
Mo

Yes, true leading man like I said. EJ filled an important role and that role has been vacant for many years. I know a lot of people like Chad, but I don’t like the actor playing him. Yes, Billy can act, but I don’t find him attractive and I do think he’s missing something. So Alex needs to be cast very carefully.

We don’t care that Valerie has a son. There should be more intrigue about it and her trying to cover things up if we’re to be interested and more interaction with Julie who bugs her about seeing a picture. Or what about Julie going on FB and seeing a picture-something. I can only hope that once it is revealed that Valerie had David’s child that Julie will be on more. Julie is funny (even when she isn’t trying to be) and we need more of that. Loved her snarky scenes at Thanksgiving.

And Days needs to dial down Deimos. More Victor. Less Deimos. We see him all the time. And I don’t know why Deimos and Brady don’t just tell Nicole their suspicions. Then she can call the clinic to see if Chloe had another implant and/or contract Chloe.

MARCO DAPPER!!…(EX-CARMINE, y n r)…
boy is a hell of a looker, easy on the eyes, charming, dastardly, sexy
y n r cut him short and sony kinda owes him so hooking him up with a days gig would be nice. his story on y n r with lauren had so much potential until tptb fell short and made him a lunatic
if he is justins son… the resemblance and dimples are a bonus!
snatch him up days!!

DAYS should be joking. The extras are more interesting in the background pretending not to watch the actors at work fighting through bad sl’s and dialogue. Could you imagine having to pretend to not see Abigail behind a plant squeezing a stuffed toy in that where in the world is Carmen San Diego hat? Stop casting more characters until the ones you have keep us glued to the set. .right now I feel like I’m trying to stay put on an heavily oiled leather SOFA! !

There is only one obvious choice: Joan Collins.

A baseball cap, sunglasses, and some dimly lit sets and no one would realize that the part of 30-39 year old male character was being played by an actress over 80.

Clearly, this role is begging for Collins.

Tomas Torquemada

AND he could take a trip to Cougar Town for a romance with Carolyn Brady.

We do need someone who can take over the role EJ played on the show (I mean role as in terms of leading man). Maybe this character can do that. At the mo, don’t have any actors in mind, but since I’m not an agent or casting director, that’s okay.

Tom Pelphrey or Brandon Barash. Please!

Like I am suppose to believe that Chad, Sonny and Dario are the new Mob…. That meeting on Thursday was funny and soo unbelievable.. lol.. Come on Days…. really?

Mo

A lot of stuff is unbelievable. How ridick is JJ being promoted to a detective and then going to interrogate Eduardo? AND he’s telling everyone and his brother about the case, but sshhhh, it’s a secret. He ought to be fired.

Tomas Torquemada
Tomas Torquemada

Agree. Gobsmacked by the utter miscalculation and POINTLESSNESS of the scene.

But then again I feel the same way about all of the teen ‘storylines’ as well. Ugh.

Mo

The teens are awful. And now they’re all living together! Why don’t they stay in a dorm? Or at Hope’s house since she’s in prison (or was when they made the plans to cohabitate).

davlestev1

Nail on the head Tim S. Since when did the Hernandez family become a “family”? All of a sudden they’re running the docks and Eduardo is Salem’s Sonny Corinthos!!! Not only that they’re treating Orwell as just some other piece of techno instead of the illegal thing it is. Countries terrorists and all types of bad characters and companies would be crawling all over that town right now as well as the government here. Ill conceived stories make for declining ratings because of frustrated viewers. How could you NOT have learned a lesson with elephant diamonds. Now you have purse microchips!!! The less said the better about that pointless Prague fiasco. That blink and miss it out the blue prison escape…still SMH….Eric acting all creepy to aunt hope….like he’s a creepy kidnapper and not her nephew. The truth comes out about holly but Chloe…for real though…telling Nicole and watching her kick Deimos to the curb after all her baby heartbreak would have been a whole lot more exciting!!! Does anyone at Days remember why soaps became so popular in the first place??

davlestev1

Here’s a thought lock all of the writers and tptb in a room with one month of British soaps to get an idea why millions still watch them. Just this week on Emmerdale they visited the character of Ashley…former pastor who’s suffering Alzheimer’s and dementia. His young daughter doesn’t want him in care but Laurel his wife knows better. Gabby the daughter had to mind him in one episode and he kept telling everyone around him he had to go. They kept keeping him from leaving but once he was left with gabby he went…he didn’t have to go out the door…he meant to the bathroom that he forgot where it was in his own house…so her peed on his self…I was in tears!!!

I don’t know if he is to old but how about that gorgeous Justin Hartley? I know he is already on This is Us which i watch every week.They are both on the same network.He is so nice to look at and watch, what a handsome man. A great actor,and I wouldn’t mind trying him on for size lol ,

Michael Roark would be perfect. If not Jason Gerhardt.

Michael wanted to do primetime or something else otherwise he’d still be at Y&R. I also think he’s too old.

Kit

Didn’t the show just get rid of John-Paul Lavoisier who would fit the bill? If TPTB couldn’t figure out how to make him work on the canvas, why do they think lightning will strike with someone new?

Mo

JP would not work. He didn’t work at Philip, wouldn’t work in this role. It’s a shame, but the way it is. Writing didn’t help the character either.

dmr

Someone that actually act, unlike the most recent teen scene/young trendsetter crowd.

Tomas Torquemada

Agree. To be fair, they have nothing to work with. Daddy is dating! I wanna be a rock star! My life is sad!

Mo

Maybe and a big maybe, maybe if they got some great actors in the role, the writing would improve. Long shot I know. The only one of the teens I don’t mind too much is Theo. I don’t know why they recast Jade. Should have just let her fade away.

Days used to do teens well, but I think they had better actors to work with (which is very important).

Tim Welles
Tim Welles

Uh…honestly? They NEED another actor in his 30’s? What they need are some better scripts, the writing has been AWFUL –
for a while there, with Sonny and Will having problems (and Paul thrown into the mix) the show was really reflective of today’s issues and very innovative. Now, it’s back to the same old “so and so is pregnant but who is the baby’s father” bit which has been done since 1921 – also, how many more times is Hope going to be dying in a bed or in a prison hospital or in an explosion?

Judith Chapman Confirms She Is Back On DAYS And As Leo’s Mom

Exciting news DAYS fans, those rumblings were true! Judith Chapman will be playing the trouble-making Leo Stark’s (Greg Rikaart) mother on Days of our Lives.  And that reunites Chapman with Rikaart as mother and son.

As soap fans know, they played Gloria and Kevin Fisher on The Young and the Restless for many years together.  Now they will be playing a new mother/son dynamic duo in Salem. But, just what kind of twisted relationship might they have, since Leo has given clues that she was a bad mom?

Soap Opera Digest revealed that Judith will play Diana.   Her first airdate will be on January 29th.  DAYS fans know Judith from her time as Angelica Deveraux from 1989-1991, and most recently when she returned to the show for the 2018 Halloween episode doing a guest-turn as Angelica AKA Satan in Hattie’s (Deidre Hall) nightmare.

Chapman confirmed her arrival on the Salem scene in a tweet today, stating “And I don’t have to keep the secret either Mitch Sandusky! What a GREAT way to start 2019… More articles to come in TV Guide Magazine and Soap Opera Digest… and to be reunited with my TV son.

Diana will have a past with John Black (Drake Hogestyn), which could cause trouble for John and Marlena’s wedded bliss.

So, excited to know Judith will once again tear up the soap-screen, but this time back on DAYS? Comment below.
