DAYS Casting Two Younger Set New Contract Roles: "Ben" and "Sabrina"! Who Should Play Them?

More casting news out of Days of our Lives! The long-running NBC soap has been on an upswing of late and according to Soap Opera Digest,  the series has put out a casting call for two new contract roles for characters in a younger age range.

One role is for the character of “Ben”, who is in his early to mid 20s, is described as a gorgeous, Caucasian country boy, either midwestern or Southern. He is “utterly charming in his honest sincere approach to life and love.” The show would ideally like to find someone who plays a guitar and asks potential candidates to indicate if they can sing or play an instrument.

The second character is “Sabrina”, a 17 to 18-year-old gorgeous Caucasian female who is a shy, quiet innocent with a heart of gold.

So, who would you see in these two roles as casting suggestion for DAYS? And, what characters do you think they will be involved with in storyline, or romantically? Share your thoughts!

I really hate teen storylines. If the casting is as bad as that JJ kid with his
smug face, then I don’t care who gets cast because I’ll be forwarding right through it.

Well mid 20’s hardly qualifies Ben as a teen character, but I get what you mean. But some of the best characters they have now- began as part of a teen line, so I just got my fingers cross whatever SL they come up with for these new characters it will be better than the lame one they have for JJ. Otherwise, I will be fast forwarding through it too.

Well, the younger stories of the past had great casting thanks to Fran Bascom, their casting agent, who coincidentally just passed away. RIP Fran.

I can’t really give too much credit to whoever is casting these days because I loathe that little punk face JJ and I’m not a big fan of Abigail or Cameron for that matter. I get through the show super quick when I fast forward through them.

No clue who they could be but they really need to age Ciara, Joey, and Theo to around 15 or 16. This will give their parents more to do on the show. I do love the younger actors who play the roles now but they can’t stay on the show forever.

Joey is Kayla and Steve’s son who we only see at the Brady Pub about once a year.

Yeck. I guess to play with JJ? How about giving Chad and Sonny storyline other than pouring coffee?

Instead of hiring new characters nobody cares about, write storylines that aren’t crao for the characters they do have, especially legacy characters. I would rather see them bring back Tony, Jack, or Bo, and pay them their proper salary and get rid of Jen Lilly, chrisell, and don’t hire these two characters, especially Bo.

Well, IF Blake Berris is leaving (just speculation due to his storyline) they will need to bring on a new love interest for Gabi. I believe Casey Diedrick might be leaving so “Ben” could be a recast Chad. Hopefully,,,,really do not care for CD. I hope they do not SORAS Ciara or any or Sami’s other kids. They need to bring back Bo with or without Peter Reckel. Hope is basically just twisting in the wind and they have not given an adequate reason for him to be to be gone. Giving Marlena some story would be nice. All she… Read more »

I really do miss the Beautiful & Sexy Renee Jones, I stopped watching once I realized they had no desire to cast any other beautiful black actresses to fill the void after Renee’s departure.

Days cast was recently on jeff probst show. They were asked by probst abt storylines of course. Cast seemed very comfortable except for galen while probst was a good enough host especially when compared to horrid anderson cooper. What is up w/ galen’s awkwardness? He did not appear to be very comfortable promoting days. It was like he wasn’t engaged at all. He seemed very embarrassed when a woman from the audience asked what they wear when their characters are hooking up. You’d think galen should be used to those questions given that majority of male actors on soaps are… Read more »

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Cady McClain Ends Her Great Run as Jennifer; But Not Before A ‘Wink-Wink’ Nudge-Nudge’ to AMC’s Dixie ‘Poison Pancake’ Debacle

Wednesday’s episode featured another solid performance by two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Cady McClain as Jennifer Horton Devereux as it was the day of her mother, Laura’s (Jaime Lyn Bauer) funeral.

Last week, longtime viewers were saddened that the character of Dr. Laura Horton was killed-off.  The question remains did she fall accidentally and hit her head in a struggle with Gwen (Emily O’Brien), or did Gwen intentionally kill Laura?

Yesterday was also the final episode of McClain in the role of Jennifer – as far as we know for now.   In story, following Laura’s funeral, Jennifer was heading to Boston to be with her brother Mike, to settle their mother’s estate and go through her belongings, etc.

Cady had taken over the role of Jennifer from Melissa Reeves, who chose to stay in Nashville during the Covid-19 pandemic.  As part of her departure, head writer, Ron Carlivati and the writing team, delivered a little wink-wink nudge-nudge to soap viewers and those of McClain’s time as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children.

In one of the most controversial soap death scenes of all-time, and one that was not kind to McClain, Dixie was killed-off the ABC daytime drama series after eating poison peanut butter pancakes. Fast-forward to 2021, and in an attempt to make DAYS Jennifer feel better, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) whips up some banana pancakes with extra peanut butter!  When Jennifer declines them, Julie says she thought she liked them, to which Jennifer replied, “I used to.  But I had a bad experience with them once.  Now I can’t even look at them.”  Julie questions, “Bad experience?”  Then Jennifer says, “I’d rather not talk about it.”

In our books, McClain got the last laugh here getting to do a nod to the audience, who has followed her soap career for decades including the the 2007 killing of Dixie … by pancakes.

Previously, Cady shared in a 2020 interview with EW.com about the subject: “It was a dig at me by one of the writers that very much wanted to put me in my place. I had stepped out of line and they wanted to put me back in line, and I was going to eat those pancakes and I was going to learn my lesson, and I certainly did.”

So, what did you think of the mention of the ‘pancakes”? Will you miss Cady as Jennifer? Comment below.
