Remember in On-Air On-Soaps recent video interviews from A Day of DAYS 2011 with James Scott (EJ) we discussed some upcoming “blackmail”? And later we spoke with Chandler Massey (Will) and Camila Banus (Gabi) to get a preview of what is going to happen with Will’s coming out story?  Well, we can now reveal, thanks to a very revealing interview with TV Guide with Chandler Massey, that Will’s coming out story is going to be one fraught with so much intense drama, that it could be one story for the record books. EJ and Will are going to both blackmail each other and Will’s secret sexuality will be used as leverage by EJ!   Plus, next week Will gets stinking drunk and let’s a roomful people know exactly what he thinks of them!  Here are a few excerpts below:

Chandler on EJ getting wise to Will’s sexuality leading to a mutual blackmail!:  “When Will’s plan to move in with Gabi fails, he doesn’t have anywhere else to go. He wants to leave Salem so he tries to blackmail EJ into giving him money. But then EJ turns the tables on Will and threatens to reveal he’s gay. It turns into this master-slave relationship.”

Chandler on EJ stooping this low to blackmail a young kid who is trying to come to grips with who he is sexually: “EJ is not afraid to go there, and I think it’s great that Days has the nerve. Our writers certainly have balls. I was shocked to read some of the scripts. Other shows might be afraid to go this direction with a story that’s this potentially sensitive but I think what we’re doing is so much richer and dramatic because of it. Daytime TV has fallen on hard times. Now is the time to take risks. It’s time to go big or go home.”

Chandler on Monday’s upcoming December 5th episode where Will gets drunk at a Christmas Party:  “Hell, yeah! And the whole family plus the mayor is there! Will decides he’s been through so much s–t that he deserves a drink. He drinks too much and gets rowdy, telling everybody exactly how he feels, which for an actor is always fun! Those are some of my favorite scenes I’ve ever shot and a great opportunity to show a wider range and a different side of Will. He’s lashing out at his mom, mostly. He’s calling her out on everything she’s done to everyone present in the room.”

So what do you think of the upcoming plot twists? Let us know!

Chandler Massey is hitting it out of the park with every scene. One of the best young actors to ever come out of daytime.

Chandler Massey is a good actor. I have enjoyed his work so far. But I do not think much of this upcoming gay storyline. It seems pointless. I think Days is spreading itself too thin creatively. You cannot please everybody. Viewers are not as patient as they have been in years past. Gay storylines are divisive. I think this is a wrong move for this show. Other storylines are good right now. Not looking forward at all to this one.

Sounds like fun! Can’t wait. I’ll be watching.

Just wondering how EJ figures out Will is gay. Does he catch him with a guy or does his gaydar just go off?

Chandler Massey is awesome! The scene where he wrecked Maggie’s kitchen was phenomenal acting as far as I’m concerned! Emmy worthy!

DAYS Alison Sweeney Previews the New EJami

Coming up on Days of our Lives, Dan Feurerriegel take over the role of EJ DiMera on-screen, and the character is making quite the timely, or untimely return to Salem now that Sami (Alison Sweeney) has been hitting the sheets with her ex-husband, Lucas (Bryan Dattilo).

Feurerriegel is stepping into the coveted role of EJ made soap-famous by James Scott, who left the series back in 2014 and never returned.

Now the question is can Sweeney and Feurerriegel strike soap gold with their re-imagined duo known as “EJami”?

 

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Alison Sweeney opened up about the casting, working with Dan, and the future of EJami sharing: “To be honest, I was nervous when I heard they were recasting EJ.  That’s a big role to fill, I mean, James Scott was definitely a fan favorite and EJ is such a memorable role in the story and certainly in Sami’s life.”

Sweeney said of sharing scenes with Feurerriegel, “Dan has been fantastic. I’ve really enjoyed working with him. He clearly understood the importance of the task ahead.”

As for what fans of EJami may be in for, Sweeney noted:  ” I hope those ‘EJami’ fans see the couple they were so connected to, but of course, in a new, different way.”

So will you be giving the new EJami a chance? Looking forward to Dan’s debut, or are you Team Lumi all the way? Share your thoughts via the comment section below. But first check out this week’s promo for DAYS.
