You tell it, Deidre!  Billy Flynn has been making an impact as the Chad DiMera on NBC’s Days of our Lives! The young actor was just named On-Air On-Soaps Best Newcomer of 2014 Male for his performances on our year-end Best and Worst in Soaps 2014.

TV Guide’s Michael Logan also has singled Flynn out as a scene stealer in new piece that is online and in the publication this week bullet-pointing some interesting backstage moments from Flynn’s rise to to being one of the hottest talent additions in daytime.

The iconic Deidre Hall (Marlena, DAYS) had this to say about Chad and Flynn’s take on the character:  “Flynn has a ‘sexy sophistication that’s delicious.’ But even she’s torn: ‘Chad’s the kind of man you don’t want your daughter to date but are secretly glad when she does.”‘

So what do you think? Is Chad the kind of man that girls can’t wait to date?  Are you enjoying Flynn’s performance?  Comment below!

I love Billy Flynn/ Chad. He has everything going for him. Looks, attitude, mystery, virility, talent, ….where do I draw the line?

I think he makes a fine Dimera…he’s very sneaky acting and i think what ever he is plotting leads to the tragic end of Jordan…i hope…lol

I took to Billy’s portrayal of Chad pretty much immediately. He was different because the Chad before had more of a pretty boy look and had soft, sweet edges in terms of portrayal, but I liked Billy’s darker take on Chad. And although he isn’t a stereotypical soap hottie, he is SEXY as all get out. It looks like he’s setting up all kinds of people for a fall – like it’s Chad’s revenge against Salem, acting like he’s a good guy but secretly about to pull the rug out from underneath a number of people. Can’t wait to see… Read more »

@ Mike. I too, definitely am digging Billy Flynn as the new-Chad. I like him a lot, and he’s got great potential in defining himself in this darker side to Chad. Successful recast, indeed.

Billy is doing a great job as Chad. Love watching him. Sometimes you can see a twinkle in his eye and all you can do is sit back and wait to see what he is going to say or do next.

As a new Days viewer, Billy is the only Chad I’ve ever seen. I think he’s doing a great job playing the layers of the character. I definitely do not trust Chad.

Billy Flynn is doing a great job filling the void that was left by James Scott.

He reminds me of a young Nicolas Cage. He commands my attention whenever he is on the screen unlike the whole JJ and Paige story.

Days is in such trouble. They now are using long time vets to boost the widespread poor casting and writing attempts. Putting character of Chad in EJ-esqe suits.

New actors with little acting experience.. Billy Flynn is not ready for a close-up. Deidre is way off the market. Less than a year ago – he was a financial analyst with WB

Libby…I TOTALLY AGREE with you!!!!! And…it seems to me that it’s getting W-O-R-S-E!!!!! Bottom Line Here: Here’s hoping that DOOL pulls it all together…FAST!!!!!

He’s doing fine as Chad, but now that EJ’s gone, DAYS needs to bring back Peter Blake-DiMera!!!!!!

DAYS….secure Robb Derringer as Peter Blake-DiMera. He just wrapped up on GH as Agent Sloane. Robb would make an excellent Peter Blake.

I like him a lot. He is really capable of portraying the darker side of Chad. Casey Deidrick (IMO) didn’t have that edge to him…there was always a hesitation in his acting out Chad’s darker qualities. There was too much frat boy in his Chad.

Why would a parent secretly be glad daughter is dating Chad? Love Deidre but don’t get train of thought. The only reason I could see for being glad is his financial status. But he is so crooked that it negates his desirability as a beau for daughter. Need clarification please Deidre!

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.

DAYS Billy Flynn Opens Up To Maurice Benard About His Battle with Addiction on All-New ‘State of Mind’

In a terrific episode of Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) State of Mind You Tube series, the actor welcomes another one of the best actors on daytime, Days of our Lives star Billy Flynn (Chad DiMera, Days of our Lives).

What made this so compelling was Billy Flynn’s ability to talk openly, frankly, and with great understanding about his battles with addiction which he notes have been alcohol, drugs, and the cycles he has found himself in within his life and how he was able to break free of them, and the work he continues to do to keep him from falling back into them.

Flynn shares how much of his adult life was greatly impacted by his childhood, and explained to Benard, how he acted out when he was younger. He also shares how his addiction caused issues for awhile with his job at Days of our Lives.

This episode is a powerful one to watch for anyone struggling with issues of addiction, dependency, suicide, having problems at work, and trying to not self-destruct, which so many of us do, once we seemingly get what we what or while we are trying to obtain it.

Bravo to Billy and Maurice for bringing this forward and to the audience.

Watch Billy’a visit on State of Mind below, followed by a bonus segment where Flynn asks Benard some ‘hard-hitting’ questions.

What did you think of what Billy shared with Maurice? Comment below.
