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 the Days of ole… whenever Daniel and Nicole pop up on the telee… add in Jennifer… and their is just no interest… OK… I can’t believe that DAYS production would fire Eve and leave us dull Jenn… she has no backbone or fire… because she’s a Horton… that’s good enough to ???? she no longer has the energy level to heighten her character any more !

a couple of SOD issues back…. an article was lamenting… when… ???? what on earth is going on with Greg Vaughan’ Eric….. he’s a brady… his mother is Marlena… ect…. so he’s been raped by Kristen, lied to by Nicole… and Serena… was ? caught in an affair or wasn’t honest about Xander ?

MOVE ON ERIC! dang it… that bodacious bod… is all you have going… ? I was watching him again… as he was once again… being their for the family… as a support system… and that’s all good and well.. but… give him a story…. sex addiction? LOL… for the life of me… he’s the current day William Holden… WRITERS ! give Greg Vaughan and the audience feature.

Jenn Lilly is being bashed around by Nicole and Kate… ie: i get that… “no ingenue goes right to the top of the fashion world… ” I hope Theresa takes the advice from her BFF, Anne… and asserts herself… and wears people down… and fight , take, and keep up… get it girl….

once you snag Brady… meh? but you have it in you to stir and lead on this show…The camera loves her period… her acting style will always percolate.

ie: i added that we’re still waiting for the Australian actor, Ava, as led by Tamara Braun… and the incomparable… dizzyingly captivating Vincent Irizarry !

I saw on a serial mag on the newstand… dolt! I completely forgot about Shawn D. and Belle….

plus all the SORAS

and now all these new casting calls

WOAH

Salem’ites

hang on

Patrick
Patrick

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, I don’t want her to get another chance to do that on Days, too.

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 bringing on both Michael and Renee is that they both genuinely enjoyed working together! I LOVED that! Days should really try to get them both!

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!

Tony

I’ve heard that Darnell Williams and Robert Newman may be up for two of the recurring roles….Let’s hope they cast veterans from other soaps…what a treat!

Patrick

Robert Newman… for obvious gorgeous… reason….

YES ! he really didn’t need Reva ! he had Crystal Chappelle… and even crazy … Cynthia Watros… his best known leading ladies… Olivia and Annie!

bring him to DAYS

make my days treat after treat

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.

Yes to Andrew Trichitta! He was such a good actor and so handsome. He needs to be on another show.

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.

Mary

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?

Shay

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. 🙁

DAYS Camila Banus Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

The angst, drama, tears, and revenge continued this week on NBC’s Days of our Lives with the stirring portrayal of grief-stricken young woman; who is hell-bent on making everyone around her suffer for the loss of her husband in a fatal gunshot that left him brain-dead.  Of course, we are talking about Camila Banus (Gabi), who turned in bravura performances this week, and there are four moments that really stood out to us that showed the range and depth of Banus’ work.

In the hospital chapel, Gabi talks to God and prayed to him that he will make Stefan (Brandon Barash) whole again.  There has been one through-line for Gabi throughout her life – she seems to have everything and everyone she loves taken away from her, even if some of the decisions she makes along the way have a cause/effect that leaves her feeling completely alone, and ready to lash out at the world for what has transpired.  In the chapel, she asks God through her tears, “Why do you hate me so much?” Gabi tells God she went to Sunday school as a little girl and still she has lost God and her husband.  Gabi cannot even get herself to look at Stefan’s things when Sonny (Freddie Smith) and Will (Chandler Massey) try to share them with her as she slaps the envelope out of their hands.

In another heartbreaking scene, Gabi is in the bed she shared with Stefan. She flashes to kissing the love of her life.  Next, Gabi breaks down in tears, and throws things around in the bedroom before slumping to the floor.  She sobs and says, “Why did you give me your heart, Stefan, if you weren’t going to be around to love me with it?”

Later, Gabi talks to Stefan in her sleep as she hugs his pillow. When she wakes up she cries as Kate (Lauren Koslow) arrives to check on her.  Gabi lets Kate have it, and at first blames Kate for the whole mess with Stefan.  Gabi lashes out that if it wasn’t for Stefan getting in between Kate’s feud with Vivian (Robin Strasser), he’d still be alive.  Kate knows Gabi is in despair and hugs her.  Then, Gabi channels her angst towards Lani (Sal Stowers) promising to make her suffer.

And on Friday’s episode, Gabi is ramping us some sort of revenge plan promising Stefan his legacy will live on. Earlier, Gabi was present with Lani and Eli (Lamon Archey) when Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) informed them that Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) will need a special pacemaker, even after receiving Stefan’s heart. Somehow, Gabi found a file on Visionary Bionics, the company that makes this unique medical device, and recalls Kayla saying she’ll do the procedure on Julie tomorrow. Gabi makes a mysterious call.  What is she about to do?

Through all of the emotional drama, Banus sustained a level of performance that is no easy feat. That is why Michael Fairman TV names Camila’s work The Power Performance of the Week.

TODAY: Ron Carlivati’s Dad Appears on DAYS

Be on the lookout on Friday’s October 18th episode of Days of our Lives for one of the shows “superfans” who pops in Salem.  That is when the father of DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati appears as an extra on the NBC soap opera.

Carlivati Sr., who is very proud of his son, looks to be donning a medical lab coat as a physician in a photo shared on social media along with Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), one of Salem’s most busy and most respected doctors.

Ron told SOD about his dad appearing on the show that he writes: “It’s funny because I’ve been in soaps for over 20 years and my dad would watch to see my name on the credits but rarely get into the show. Somehow, I don’t know what clicked in for him, he’s obsessed with Days of our Lives. He does not miss it.”

As to how his dad became an extra for the day: “We were at the studio and Albert Alarr, our co-executive producer, comes up and meets my parents and turns to my dad and says, ‘We’re gonna be shooting some scenes in the hospital next. How would you like to be in them?’ I honestly had no idea this was coming. I also fainted.”

In the latest can’t miss ‘Inside Salem: Days of our Lives‘ podcast, two major interviews are the focus of the episode.  First, Camila Banus who had been turning in bravura performances as Gabi, discusses with host.

The duo who became so popular as “Stabi” reveals why Gabi and Stefan’s love/hate relationship worked so well, and those sexed up love scenes.  Later in the interview Camila discusses her recent scenes with Sal Stowers (Lani) where Gabi wants Lani to get down on her knees and beg for forgiveness for Lani shooting Stefan, even though he got in the line of fire to save his mother, Vivian (Robin Strasser).  In addition, Camila talks about working with Susan Seaforth Hayes (Julie) and how Julie hurled some minority slurs at Gabi shortly before her heart-attack.

Then in a very special roundtable chat, Matthew Ashford (Jack) and Melissa Reeves (Jennifer) chat with Fairman about playing those key scenes where Jack rescues Jennifer from Dr. Shah, hits his head, and then finally his memories come flooding back.   The duo known as ‘JnJ” talk about their storied on-screen history, and tease what may happen in the next leg in their storylines.
