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’ Paul IS

can only hope

as for GH : it’s so damning and a slap in our faces when GH trots out, like barbies, Brad and Lucas…. these are two solid actors with presence

I give up on the CBS shows

I’m really holding out – HOPE – that Ken Corday and DAYS production give back life to Sonny and Paul

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 they split and Val put her son up for adoption and he was adopted by the Davis family-ironically Val did briefly date a Jerry Davis who could have been related to Lexi’s family…Kin Shriner and Debbie Morgan would be great as David and Valerie but i doubt Days will even do this story…i did suggest it to Corday!!

does it even matter? like all other african american characters on Days in YEARS, this character will recur for a few months and then be phased out and disappear with not even a whimper

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???

John Gordon

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”?

It’s been a big week for Days of our Lives, culminating in Saturday’s annual Day of Days event with the fans and the cast in celebration of the long-running daytime dramas 53 years on the air!

Late last week, a fun and never-before-seen Facebook Live event kicked-off the last several days of fun, and was hosted on the NBC official Facebook for Days of our Lives.

It was during the live event that fans were treated to some behind the scenes access, and several previews of the new DOOL app that was also released on all mobile devices the day of the series anniversary on Thursday

During the event, Soap Opera Digest’s Stephanie Sloane, led viewers through a hilarious opening segment, which featured a walk through the sets with various cast members doing some very familiar soap tropes from: shirtless hunks, to bitch-slaps, a twist on a soapy monologue, and more.

Later, following John and Marlena’s nuptials on-air, Deidre Hall and Drake Hogestyn along with Mary Beth Evans, James Reynolds, and host for the segment, Martha Madison, chatted about the long-awaited wedding for Jarlena fans.

Bill and Susan Hayes were on-hand to tell the audience all about the “Video Vault” section of the new DOOL app, where fans can find classic clips from DAYS history.

Then, DAYS executive producer, Ken Corday presided over the annual cake-cutting ceremony, honoring the cast and the crew for their accomplishments of keeping the show strong and continuing its legacy for 53 years and counting.

Several cast members took part in a special tribute honoring the late Peggy McCay (Caroline Brady), which was an emotional high point of the event. Eric Martsolf led several key members of the cast who worked with Peggy, as they shared remembrances of this one-of-a-kind actress.   Later, Galen Gering, Lauren Koslow, Nadia Bjorlin and Eric Martsolf did a little “Show and Tell” preview of some of their videos inside the new DOOL app.

Martha Madison returned to the backstage celebration where cast and crew took photos against the step and repeat for the series 53rd anniversary and the launch of the DOOL app.  Madison chatted with several cast and producers who stopped by including returning fan favorite, Matt Ashford (Jack Deveraux).

The facebook live event concluded when Stephanie Sloane walked into the celebration with the cast as they gave a big “Thank you” to the fans for keeping the show on the air, and telling them to check out the new DOOL app for all the exclusive, fun content now and in the days and months ahead.
