NBC’s Days of our Lives has put out a casting call for a gorgeous African American male actor in his late 20’s for a recurring role with the possibility of the part going contract.

According to details from the casting description via Soap Opera Digest: the role is that of Levi, and he is described as “everything a woman could want in a man.  He is funny, quick-witted, protective, intelligent and makes an honest living working hard and loving what he does.  He can come off as edgy not angry.”

The role is set to begin taping next month in August and would debut on-air in 2017.

So, who would you suggest for the part? Anyone familiar to audiences from daytime or primetime TV? Based on the casting call, who do you think the character of Levi will mix it up with in story? Share your casting picks and comments in the comment section below!

Part of me feels like the role of “Levi” could be the potential recast of “Cameron”, and I would welcome that. However, I am hoping to see more of a LGBT base on Days of Our Lives. I’m tired of there being a less-than-handful amount of LGBT characters on a soap opera. Give us more variety and spice. Happy it’s a part of ethnic background, though, it makes me sad that the role of Lani (Sal Stowers) wasn’t attempted to work.

DAYS : Sonny Kiriakis left the show…. August 18, 2015 dang I love the guy…. Paul has been languishing … what a waste of REEL I don’t know what became of that “brain freeze or mind control” when Paul was held captive… and dear ole dad saved the day… let alone… when the “virus” took hold gotta laugh… Ken Corday has mucked up the GREATEST show of show I do not know… if the rumor mill about Chandler Massey returning… with Freddie Smith… is with Sonny guaranteed return… and who knows if the sublime – talent – that Christopher Sean’… Read more »

Redaric Williams ex Tyler on Y&R is as handsome as they come and would fit the bill. However, my bigger concern is that Days won’t be around in 2017. This show needs to get it together ASAP.

How about they bring in Lil Wayne and he can date Ciara? Or perhaps maybe The Game and he can shake up the scene with Ciara, who is tired of being with Chad cause he is such a bore moaning and groaning about Abby. Or maybe we can go back 35 years and find someone from the past to bring on board to push the show forcefully towards cancellation? The last thing DAYS needs is another character. Have they learned nothing from all the useless characters they brought on board in the last six months???

Make him older and cast Nick Stabile. He was great on GH and he is not only what every woman wants in a man…but also what a man would look for in a stud muffin. As Rachael Ray would say…YUM-O !

This sounds like the same character description for Lexie’s brother. We all know how that turned out.

Around a year ago maybe more i suggested a storyline about Lexi’s brother who turns out to really be a Horton-Julie’s son David would be the father and Valerie Grant his mother-sometime ago there was talk about bringing back Valerie…back in the 70s David(the late Richard Gutherie) and Valerie(played by the great Tina Andrews) were an interracial couple but the network pulled the plug on their romance due to complaints-that was too bad-they were great together and i loved the Grant family…it would be interesting if the revisit that storyline-they might have remet years later and Val became pregnant but… Read more »

DAYS is in trouble. The new characters they create are never fully developed and eventually disappear from the canvas. The problem is Corday, who is still trying to produce an 80’s soap, along with writers who are out of touch. DAYS could have so much potential under the right leadership, but it seems that NBC is blind to this, or maybe preparing the show for cancelation after the one year renewal date. How many reboots can you have???

Geez – characters come and go on this show like M&M’s at a party. There doesn’t seem to be any character development at all – and the writing, good grief – it’s just
awful. This show better get it together or the sands really will run out.

I’m fine without the gay storylines. So this new dude…isn’t Valerie Grant from like centuries ago supposed to be coming back to the show at some point? Wouldn’t this be a natural tie in as a grand son or something? Knowing today’s soap world, he will be connected to NO ONE and fade out in 4 month’s time. But we can hope this person will have some connection to Abe, or the Grant Family, or if they give us some good rewritten backstory, maybe has some Horton blood.

and the actress that plays abbie( not sure about her), she doesn’t “look the part for some reason”, i am still thinking about that one. She seems to “wholesome”?

In story, MarDevil (Deidre Hall) decides its time to resurrect some of the Salem deceased, and from the looks of it will choose not so nice-ones to wreak a bit of havoc on the residents of the town.

As DAYS fans recall, back in 2017, Nicole (Arianne Zucker) killed Deimos when he set out to drug everyone at a major party with the hallucinogen Halo all in his effort to steal a a valued amulet.

Irizarry confirmed his return via Facebook by simply stating: “Heeeeere’s Deimos! 👿

Now, who else will be stirring up trouble from beyond the grave on Halloween week on Days? Share your thoughts below and if you are excited to see Vincent back in Salem for the spookiest time of the year!

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.
