Well ladies and gentlemen, now you can see four hotties of the daytime scene stripping in a fictional scene on Days of our Lives coming up on April 23rd’s episode!  That’s right!  But what makes this really fun was the interview two of the participants (Galen Gering and Eric Martsolf) just gave to TV Guide Magazine’s  Michael Logan, where they discuss the filming of the scenes a la the film Magic Mike!

Apparently upcoming in story, Cameron Davis (Nathan Owens) who has already been paying for his medical school bills by stripping at night in some joint in Chicago get some help from Rafe (Gering), Brady (Martsolf) and Daniel (Shawn Christian) to benefit Salem University Hospital. And to help Cameron out of a job the guys are dressed Village People Y.M.C.A style!

Gering noted that Martsolf was comfortable doing strip shows! “Eric clearly has a lot of experience doing strip shows! And I think Shawn was pretty drunk so he was having a good time, too. I was just trying not to embarrass myself but I kept remembering what they taught us in acting school: Dare to suck.”

And it looks like veteran Peggy McKay (Caroline Brady) attends the strip show featuring the boys! Martsolf related, “I saw Peggy waving her dollar bill and giving me that look and I just couldn’t handle it. I’m thinking, ‘I can’t do it! I just can’t do it!’  So I slowly made my way across to the other side of the stage.  As an actor I’ll try pretty much anything. You gotta accept this kind of stuff when you’re a daytimer. It’s what we signed up for. (Laughs) But guess what? I do have boundaries!”

After years having their shirts off for no reason on the defunct NBC soap Passions, Martsolf related how he and Gering were right at home! :Galen and I had no issues — certainly not after Passions where we’d take off our clothes for any mundane reason.”  He recalls one plot where he and Justin Hartley had to help a woman who’d been shot. “”I used my shirt as a pillow, he used his as a tourniquet, then we hung around the hospital topless for six episodes asking about her condition. So this thing on Days? Business as usual!”

So DAYS fans are you looking forward to this plot point?  We bet you are!  Do you think its fun concept as an excuse to see the guys half-naked?  Let us know!

I’ve never seen Magic Mike nor will I ever. And while Shawn/Eric are the only two on this list that I’d be remotely attracted to, none of the guys are ultimately who I’d wish to see in this so-called fictional scene.

They’re just copying the guys from GH’s Nurses Ball.

Why can’t Days do better? Same old predictable plot twists. Great actors, horrible writing.

Though I do love Garen and Shawn.

Days sucks and they’ll try anything to bring some attention to the show. Hey, how about some decent writing?? Oh and I don’t need to see Caroline/Peggy McCay putting dollars in their pants.

And the stripper thing was done a longgg time ago with Pete Jannings!

Garen is hot 🙂

I have been enjoying my free time by not watching Days.. was much easier than I thought to finally give up on it! Ces.. just let Days go.. you will have AmC and OLTL to watch now also.. We have given Days too many years to get better and they seem not to be able to.

Ces
Guest

Tsuds, You know, you’re right, I have given too much of my time to watch Days and it hasn’t gotten any better; it’s actually annoying to watch. I may have to free up an hour in my life and cut that one loose – heck, I barely pay attention to it when it’s on. GH is plenty for me to get my soap time in 🙂

BETTER WRITING…. PUHLEASE!

it’s agony at times… to even think beyond watching the show…trudging. wearily.

GREAT ACTORS.

Rafe strip tease’ING….. Hmmm.

Ces

there’s the word: AGONY!! Painful to watch.. Painful that each day you hope “something” happens, but nothing ever does. Horrible, horrible writing…

I do love Rafe & Kate but could have done without L.Koslow’s scenery chewing the other day. I mean, hasn’t Rafe had enough of that? I loved Rafe with Carrie and Days blew that shot! Love Galen Gering!

How could they? DAYS films 3-4 months in advance compared to GH. DAYS had it first, plus DAYS has done movie spoofs prior.

Um GH. Already did it for the nurses ball, I know soaps copy each other but really?

Glen

DOOL is taped months in advance. Unless tptb over there are psychic, I’m sure they had no way of knowing that GH was planning a similar striptease. Just one of those coincidences (but a very eye-pleasing one).

Aria

Yeah, I forgot dool tapes months in advance but like you said it will be eye pleasing so the more the merrier.

The idea of seeing Galen doing a strip tease is about the worst thing I could imagine. Unless his eyebrows grew long enough to cover his body. They almost do but not quite enough. I definitely won’t be watching that day. My eyes would need bleach and my brain would explode at the mere thought…..

Derek
Guest
Derek

Ugh exactly. Why they picked the over 40 set to do this is beyond me. Brady is the hottest out of the three, but when you have men like EJ, Chad, Brian, and they picked these guys is lame.

Patrick
Guest

Rafe stood in line first.

and I liked him.

shawn

Why would EJ do it anyway. He’s not friends with Cameron.

Derek
Guest

Neither are Rafe or Brady. At least EJ is the brother of Cameron’s sister. The point is the writers could have come up something different if they wanted to.

Maybe but I don’t see any appeal to Shawn Christian.He always looks dirty,sweaty and smelly.He may have a good body but no appeal whatsoever for me.Yet we’re supposed to believe that his character is God’s gift to women and they destroyed Chloe and Jack,two long time fan favorites, to prop him.

No matter what supposed crappy things DAYS does, it’ll never be a match for those crappy comments from those who obviously can’t simply turn their tv off, get a life and let the rest of us enjoy our show. And btw, Shawn Christian is hot, so go see an optometrist: you need glasses, lol.

Skelettor aka the diva who thought she would actually have a storyline when her on-camera husband quit from the show and her antics 😀

that’s so funny!

LOL.

honestly… it’s pretty much cable…. here… save for the soaps…

so there you have it…

twisted and caluculated?

LOL

i watched the Magic mike scenes with relish…

and.. lo and behold….

Rafe and Brady didn’t dissapoint…

i thought Daniel overacted.. and that’s because of how hard the writers are forcing down…. our minds… the pairing of Daniel and someone anyone… done with him… and alas…. tired Jenn. daniel haggie maggies more tired than Jenn. and that’s not boding well for even Jenn… Grans Jewel is tired.

Hot for you maybe.I find him dirty,sweaty and smelly.And his face? gly.He’s a very sweet and nice person but look wise.he sucks.Especially when compard to gorgeous and smoking hot hunks like GG,JS,EM,JKJ,….He’s so far away from their league..he’s barely average looking.But we’re,supposed to believe that he’s the hottest and all the women fall for him.Pure crap

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Abe Goes to the Light While John Faces Off with MarDevil

Monday’s highly-anticipated episode of Days of our Lives did not disappoint. In fact, we think that this episode should be a strong contender for DAYS to consider for one of their Outstanding Drama Series submissions for next year’s Daytime Emmys.  Why? It has it all – emotional heart with Abe’s journey to and from the light, touching flashbacks, a great performance by James Reynolds, and some special effects and editing during the John (Drake Hogesytn) vs. MarDevil scenes, which also gave us a delicious performance by Deidre Hall.

At the start of the episode, Abe has flatlined after being shot as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) tries to revive him, but they are losing him.  As this is going on, Paulina (Jackée Harry), Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) and Eli (Lamon Archey) are gathered at the hospital awaiting news on Abe’s condition.  Later, Eli decides to go find out what is happening with Abe, and gets the shock of his life when he walks in on Abe flatlining, while Kayla tells him that Abe is gone.  Eli implores her to try to bring him back. He tells the others they are working on trying to save Abe, as Julie and Paulina bond, and later, Lani must call Theo and Brandon to let them know about Abe’s condition.

Julie reminisces about Abe, and how they have known each other for 40 years, our wink-wink that this is James Reynolds’ 40th anniversary episode.   Then, we see Abe has gone to the light wearing a white sweater and who should he see but his beloved late wife, Lexie.  No, it’s not Renee Jones, but an actress who delivers Lexie’s lines, since it had been previously reported that Jones was unavailable for the episode.  In scenes with the replacement Lexie, Reynolds showed us why he is an MVP of DAYS.  He acted up a storm and brought the emotion regardless of who was standing there.

 

However, longtime viewers got a wonderful surprise when flashback clips of scenes between Renee Jones and Reynolds were shown and they were some major moments in the history of Abe and Lexie’s relationship including: the moment when Abe learns Lexie’s pregnant, the moment when he is disgusted by Lexie’s betrayal when he learned of her involvement in the Zack baby switch storyline, and what she did to Bo and Hope, all because she was desperate for a child. Later, it’s the five-hankie moment of when Lexie, who was dying from a brain tumor, passes away in Abe’s arms.

After all the flashbacks, Lexie tells Abe he needs to go back and not to come with her to heaven. He has children, and people who love him and need him. Eventually, he says his goodbyes to Lexie and returns to the present, just as Kayla is about to call his time of death in the hospital room. All of a sudden, Abe’s heart begins to beat.

Photo: JPI

Kayla brings Julie, Eli, Lani, and Paulina the news that Abe will need surgery, but he will make it.  Then, Paulina and Lani make their way to see him. In another emotional moment, they tell him how much they love him (Paulina looks worried about her lie being exposed that Lani is not really Abe’s bio-daughter).  As the episode comes to its conclusion, we see the back of Lexie making sure Abe is safe and sound among the living, while signifying she is watching over him.

And if that was not enough, this episode also picked up where John had confronted MarDevil in the church, letting Satan knows he is on to him and that he is not going to win … he is going to get Marlena back.  Satan drives home the point that Marlena belongs to him now.  John is mortified as the cross on the church wall turns upside down. Later to show off his prowess and control, MarDevil turns the holy water blood red. As the scene progresses, MarDevil is jumping all over the church and showing up in different spots.

Photo: JPI

John then gets the lowdown on how Satan struck a deal with Marlena to let Doug (Bill Hayes) live if she let him in.  That is followed, by some of the back-story of Marlena’s first possession over 25 years ago, and why it happened when she was alone and very distraught.  MarDevil even goes on to say that he tried once before to regain control of Marlena during the Salem Serial Killer storyline, but it did not work out that time, because all the victims turned out to be alive.  MarDevil brings up Stefano and how he had made Marlena believe John was dead which left her vulnerable.  He goes on to relate that Doug was the gateway for Marlena’s re-possession.

Photo: JPI

MarDevil tells John what she did with Doug by committing him and how she wanted to kill Julie. John knows that Marlena can hear him and tries to bring her back, but as the devil struggles with that, ultimately, he wins and begins to show his strength to John tossing him around the church, where he is eventually is knocked unconscious and then dragged to, we don’t know where, by the MarDevil!

Throughout the scenes, Deidre Hall looked like she was having so much fun playing the devilish one in this campy storyline revisited.

So, what did you think of James Reynolds performance and his 40th anniversary episode? What was your favorite moment? Are you glad John knows for certain now that Marlena is once again possessed? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Jensen Ackles Shares Heartfelt Message on Death of ‘Rust’ DP Halyna Hutchins: “This Has Been a Tragedy of Epic Proportions”

Former Days of our Lives and Supernatural star, Jensen Ackles (Ex-Eric and Ex-Dean)  took to his Instagram over the weekend to pay tribute to cinematographer, Halyna Hutchins who was tragically killed in New Mexico, on the set of the film Rust in which Ackles co-starred with Alec Baldwin and Frances Fisher. Baldwin is also one of the producers of the film.

Last Thursday, in the initial investigation reports surfaced that Baldwin discharged a “prop gun” leading to the death of Hutchins and injuring director, Joel Souza.  Since that time it has been reported that Baldwin was told by the assistant director, David Halls, that the weapon was a “cold gun” meaning not loaded with live rounds following its preparation by the film set’s armorer, Hannah Gutierrez.  But in his affidavit statement, Halls says he was unaware that the prop gun contained live rounds when it was given to Baldwin for his scene.

The scene Baldwin was rehearsing was inside a church building at the Bonanza Creek Ranch. In new affidavit’s, it was noted that Baldwin was ‘cross drawing’ the weapon and pointing the gun towards the camera lens.

A grief-stricken Ackles shared:  “I’m not even sure where to start.  This has been a tragedy of epic proportions that we are all still processing. Earlier last week I felt compelled to tell Halyna just how awesome I thought she was. I told her how incredible I thought her camera shots were and just how exciting it was to watch her and her team work. Truly. She laughed and said thank you and gave me a hug. I’ll forever be thankful we had that moment.  She had a spunk and passion that infected the entire crew from the top down. She was an inspiration. My heart and prayers go out to Halyna’s husband, son and the rest of her family. There just aren’t enough words to express what an immense loss this is. She will be incredibly missed by all of us who knew and admired her.”

Since Hutchins’ death, a video also surfaced of Ackles discussing his concerns for gun safety on the set of Rust at a Supernatural convention in Colorado prior to the tragedy.

Jensen told the crowd: “I’ve got a 6 a.m. call tomorrow to have a big shoot-out. They had me pick my gun. They were like, ‘Alright, what gun would you like?’ and I was like, ‘I don’t know?’ and the armorer was like, ‘Do you have gun experience?’ I was like, ‘A little.’ And she’s like, ‘OK, well, this is how you load it, this is how we check it and make sure it’s safe. “So she’s like, ‘OK, I’m gonna put some blanks in there and I want you to just go and fire off a couple rounds towards the hill.’ And I was like, ‘OK.’ So I put the belt on, I put the gun there, and I walked out and she’s like, ‘Just make sure that you know, you pull the hammer all the way back and you aim at your target.’ And I was like, ‘OK, I got it.’  The footage was originally on You Tube, but now has been taken down.

The investigation remains and open and active on what occurred on the set of Rust, according to the Santa Fe New Mexico Sheriff’s office.

So, what do you think about Jensen’s tribute in the wake of the Rust tragedy? Comment below.
