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”?
