This afternoon, Guy Wilson came forth and confirmed on his official facebook page that he is indeed the new Will Horton of Days of our Lives! The casting secret was revealed the other night by Guy’s new cast mate, Jen Lilley (Theresa)  on the Lather Up with Littany Blog Talk Radio series during her interview segment.

Wilson’s post stated, “Yes, I am the new ‘Will Horton’ on “Days of Our Lives”. This is a dream come true for me. But I do have some very big shoes to fill; Chandler Massey’s talent is beyond measure. I’ve always admired Chandler’s work and to now follow in his footsteps is truly an honor. I am so excited to share this adventure with all of you!!!”

It was a very nice overture for Guy to reach out to DAYS fans and share his enthusiasm on taking on the next phase of the character development and storylines of Will Horton!

And now the question that that will be answered over the next several months and in 2014,  can fans accept Guy in the role of Will?  Time will tell, but he certainly has some very strong acting credentials, and we hear from the people at DAYS, that he is quite a nice guy!

So, what do you think of Guy’s statement about stepping into Chandler’s shoes? Are you excited to know that the character of Will Horton will still be on the canvas and not be written out?  Weigh-in!

I am glad they are keeping Will on the canvas, I believe he is considered a legacy character. I seen Guy Wilson’s scenes on YouTube from when he played a gay teenager on a NCIS episode,he was really good. I am willing to give Guy my viewing time. The producers must have seen something in his audition that made him the right choice for the recast.

I’m glad that the character of Will is staying in Salem, and Guy certainly has the correct last name: WilSon!

take a deep breath. cull from your training… your employment…. your job your intent… is to display… share with the world… a NEW character… it’s not you.. it’s intrigue and alluring to be something outside of yourself… it’s your chosen profession… to canvas..the written word. You are Will – and Sonny… is your lover… you have a daughter… ’nuff said… it’s not blowing it out of proportion..it is what it is. the world is prepared for what it is… gay lifestyle… and equating your part of Salem. big shoes to fill… yeah! ’nuff said… it’s yours now… relax and feed… Read more »

There will always be haters, I’ve seen some Chandler fans tweet some nasty, mean-spirited things to Guy. And some of them have also unfollowed Wilson fans who have expressed their support to Guy. So I can imagine what they’ll say once he starts airing in January.

I will wait to pass judgement, but watching his scenes elsewhere, I am hopeful. He is a decent actor. Not sure Will is the right role, but I am glad Will is staying on the canvas too. I will keep an open mind here. Every time GL recasted Blake or Dinah, I was upset, but ended up like each recast better than the last. I am confident that DAYS knows what they are doing, and as I said Guy is a decent actor. Best of luck to both him and Chandler as they embark on their new journeys. Now DAYS,… Read more »

Aren’t they killing off Chad? Think of the horror of the DiMeara family when they realize Chad didn’t want them to know about his health problem. Wonder who they will blame and destroy for that.

I suspect Chad is lying about his tumor to Cameron– we never saw the specialist say he has a tumor. And he seems very evasive about treatments and letting other people know. I think Chad wanted Cameron to believe it so he would back off from Abigail–out respect for his illness. I think Chad is becoming more and more a DiMera everyday– and if I am right and he is lying and is perfectly healthy, then I think they will recast— would love to see Chad challenge EJ for a piece of DiMera empire.

Oooh Mary! I never thought of that! Wow! Now that you’ve said this, I really hope that’s what will happen! Very clever.

The last thing this show needs is a recast of that dead weight known as Gabi. I hope the that fact that Camilla is leaving 7 months earlier then her contract ends is a sign that the show is writing that character out. I pray that they don’t recast that character.

I wish him the best of luck. I’ve seen some clips of his work online and he seems very talented. I love how excited and enthusiastic he is about taking on this tough, beautiful, celebrated, highly important and groundbreaking character. He has the right attitude, and I look forward to seeing what he brings to the role. Chandler leaving leaves a hole, but I feel confident from what I’ve seen that this chap can bring the character to life and do him justice.

I am looking forward to the new Will. I know I should like the character more than I do, but CM has always turned me off. I think it had to do with that sappy, imbecilic grin he pastes on his face all the time.

Isn’t Will supposed to be older than JJ Horton who just turned 18 this week. The new actor looks awfully young in the pix being used. Can he really be taken seriously as a young 20’s gay male? Time will tell.

He’s 27 or 28 in real life I believe. I think many of the pictures circulating are older head shots.

I like GW’s honesty and humility. Hope he does justice to the role of WH. It may take some time but definitely deserves a chance. CM as WH and his chemistry with FS as SK will be greatly missed. Good Luck! to CM in his future endeavors. Hope WilSon retains its magic with FS and GW like it did with FS and CM. Hope FS does not decide to follow his co-star’s footsteps and leave the show. Losing 2 good actors will be hard.

I’m glad they re-cast the role and I’m sure Guy will do fine, but I’m also sure that he will be torn apart for the first few months.
He does have big Emmy-winning shoes to fill after all, but hopefully he will grow into the role quickly and without too much criticism.
Soap fans can be pretty brutal with re-casts…myself included…so good luck to him.

DAYS Brandon Barash On Stefan’s Resurrection: “You’ll See Some Revenge, Corporate Takeovers, Losing a Memory … Maybe Gaining of Memories”

Dr. Rolf is at it again on Days of our Lives! While Jake DiMera has met his maker, apparently his twin brother, Stefan O DiMera is coming back to life.  That sets the stage for Brandon Barash to reprise his original DAYS role.

In a brand new interview with his on-screen brother, Dan Feuerriegel (EJ) on the Days of our Lives You Tube Channel, Barash talks on what viewers can expect once Stefan is completely back in action, and how he feels about taking on the darker twin once again.

Brandon teased: “You’ll see some revenge, corporate takeovers, losing a memory … maybe gaining of memories.”  With Stefan back in the DiMera mix, look for the two brothers to not always see eye-to-eye. Barashs shared that they’ll be, “Butting heads for sure”.

Meanwhile, will Stefan and his true love, Gabi (Camila Banus) reunite once she knows he is alive? Barash weighs-in on that and more ‘burning’ questions.

You can check out the chat below.

Now, let us know, are you glad that Stefan O DiMera is back on the Salem canvas? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

BREAKING NEWS: Days of our Lives Ending Its Run on NBC, Moving to Peacock Starting in September

In a major move, Days of our Lives, the longest-running scripted series of all-time on NBC, is exiting the television network and will now be in its new home on the NBCUniversal streaming platform, Peacock.

The shift marks the end of DAYS’ nearly 57 year-run on broadcast television. Days of our Lives debuted on NBC back on November 8th, 1965.

Look for all-new episodes daily of the series to begin on Peacock starting on September 12th, along with the show’s library already available to stream for Peacock Premium subscribers.  According to a press release from Peacock, “The historic move to Peacock creates the ultimate destination for daytime fans to access the library, new episodes and Peacock Original Days of Our Lives: Beyond Salem in one place.”

In its place, NBC will fill the daytime drama’s current timeslot with NBC News Now, an hour-long news show anchored by Kate Snow, Aaron Gilchrist, Vicky Nguyen and Morgan Radford. According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC affiliates will also have the option to add local news to the hour.

In a statement, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming chairman Mark Lazarus shares: “This programming shift benefits both Peacock and NBC and is reflective of our broader strategy to utilize our portfolio to maximize reach and strengthen engagement. With a large percentage of the Days of Our Lives audience already watching digitally, this move enables us to build the show’s loyal fanbase on streaming while simultaneously bolstering the network daytime offering with an urgent, live programming opportunity for partners and consumers.”

NBC’s decision means it leaves only three daytime soaps on American broadcast TV: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful. 

DAYS has found recent streaming success with its limited-series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem Chapters 1 and 2, which introduced the viewing audience to the Peacock platform.

To watch Days of our Lives on Peacock, you will need a premium-tier paid subscription at $4.99 per month. The service offers an an ad-free experience at $9.99 per month.

We will have more on this developing story.

So, what do you think of NBC removing DAYS from its daytime line-up, while moving it to their owned-streaming platform, Peacock? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Brandan Barash Shares Reaction to Jake’s Death on Days of our Lives: “It Was Fun Getting To Know You”

This week on Days of our Lives, Jake (Brandon Barash) met his untimely demise, when he was shot by a mugger.  Thus, signaling what would seem to be the end of the line for the character.

However, on today’s episode of the NBC soap opera, Jake visited a grieving Ava (Tamara Braun), so perhaps there is more than a ‘ghost of a chance’ that Barash is sticking around.

As previewed exclusively last month during our virtual interview with DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati …the Salem scribe revealed there would be another death in Salem, following the murder of Abigail Deveraux DiMera (Marci Miller), and the character would be ‘dead-dead’.

However, speculation is running wild that with the return of Dr. Rolf, that perhaps Jake will be resurrected … or Barash will once again play Jake’s twin, Stefan O. DiMera!

On Instagram, Barash had some fun with Jake’s demise with comparison side-by-side photos – one of which features Barash as Jake covered in blood, and reading the Handbook for the Recently Deceased!

Barash captioned his pic: “How it started/how it’s going. #ripjake It was fun getting to know you. 🙏🥃”

So, what do you think about DAYS killing Jake? Do you think Brandon will be sticking around Salem? If so, as who? Comment below.
