Put those casting director hats on DAYS fans! There are six roles up for grabs that are said to be “short-term” that the daytime drama series is looking to fill that will begin taping next month in November! Since the series tapes six month in advance, these roles will not be seen on the air till spring of 2016.

According to Soap Opera Digest, DAYS is casting the following roles:  Mark – who is described as a gorgeous, 17 or 18-year-old popular jock whose father is a strict judge, which makes Mark rebellious. Hal– is a 38-45 gorgeous man who is the father of an 19-year old girl. Clark – is a 38-46-year old who is described as a “hot bad boy.”  Simone – is a beautiful hippie chick in her late 30s. The show is seeking someone who is African American, Hispanic or Asian for this recurring role. Judge Avery – is a 50-to-55-year old judge who finds his property vandalized by teenagers.  Dr. Robinson  -is a 40-to-50-year old psychiatrist, who will be either African American or Asian.

From the looks of it, some of this must have to do with the SORAS’d teen scene that viewers are soon to get a major dose of come later this month and November.  But, perhaps its characters for another story?

So, after reviewing the casting descriptions, who would you like to see fill those roles from any of your daytime or primetime television favorites?  When posting your comment below, make sure you clearly state what role you are suggesting the actor for!

We won’t see these characters until most likely May 2016. I’m more excited for January to see Jordi and Vincent in their new roles.

“Clark”

Michael Muhney…. period!

enough of this ….

smart money is to simply hire him… and he, alone

would stratosphere ratings… and overtake any thing… this is good going on now

I’m so happy with my beloved show

NBC / Sony / DOOL : hire this man

“I” am loving my Days being in Salem is a feast on so many levels 1. drisgruntle (ok) 2 watching Nicole… who is acting the same things… over and over… it seemed like she was on the threshold of taking over as the new leading lady… when Alison Sweeney departed… yet… was relegated to dimwit with the three amigos…(Daniel, Eric, and Brady) I have to wonder… will she ever be fun again…. I get a (meh) whenever i see her now. it’s like … time to move Nicole and Daniel on… I’m certainly glad Daniel is leaving. it’s like showing… Read more »

I haven’t been wanting to erase any eps of Days…. since 10 / 12 / 15.. the day after Will strangulation

a big reason why… is Alison Sweeney !

and when I start to think of the “character” of Will… it gets me emotional

it’s top draw and the best stuff

Perfect casting for “Clark” and “Simone” would be Michael Easton and Renee Goldsberry!!! It would be so great to have them back on daytime, and back together on the same show! Their chemistry is out of this world — MAGNETIC!!! And since the roles are short term (for now!), they could still be free to do other things, too. Yes, I’m rallying for a John and Evangeline reunion!!! They were given the shaft on OLTL, so now maybe they could get a chance at redemption on Days. Dena Higley is still gone, right? Since she wholeheartedly killed them on OLTL,… Read more »

I loved OLTL’s John and Evangeline. Michael and Renee did terrific work together. I wonder if Renee would even be interested in going back to daytime. I’ve heard she has a very successful career on Broadway.

Weren’t John and Evangeline awesome and simply GORGEOUS together??!!! Definitely one of my all-time favorite soap couples! Renee is on Broadway, but I’m willing to bet she’d come back to daytime if given the right part — and if she’s allowed to do other things. I believe that’s why she ended up leaving OLTL. She wanted to do other things as well, and Higley and her crew wouldn’t allow her to do so. Plus, they’d broken up the popular John and Evangeline pairing, and they didn’t have her doing much of anything by the time she left. Another plus for… Read more »

Mark: KJAPA _ Instagram models and has acted on a soap, in the U.S. – good look for the tween scene.
Clark: Josh Lepage Instagram Fitness model and actor from New Zealand
Simone Hosanna Horsfall – Kiwi Actress living in Los Angeles on Facebook.
These would be my 3 picks!

I hate teen stories. Does anyone really give a damn about them?

Did Days now pick up GH’s disease of over hiring people?

These executives will never know what fans want.

Andrew Trichitta for Mark he was just finding his grove when One Life ended. Jon Prescott for Hal, another actor who deserves a good gig.

I really don’t understand what they are doing at Days with the casting. Why are they hiring for so many short term roles?Do they know that the show will be cancelled in a year and that’s why? I seriously don’t get it, it’s stupid.

What’s the point? I really think that ABC is going to cancel Days after the 50th Anniversary.

DAYS isn’t an ABC show. It’s on NBC. GH is on ABC.

I wish they would concentrate on the actors who returned to the program.
They are loved characters and are already being treated to the sidelines!

What gives?

If any show deserves the term, “castingpalooza,” it’s GH! Their endless parade of newbies cannot be matched by any other daytime drama……

They need to work with the characters they have in the cast already. They’re destroying the show. Keep on and the 50th year will be the last. 🙁

However, over the summer viewers learned she would not be returning to the show when the series began production again in September, after she was told they were planning on resting the character of Hope for five months or so.  A decision that prompted Kristian to make a decision to leave the show for good and start a new chapter in her life.

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”
