DAYS Seeking Daytime or Primetime Known Actor For New Role Of "Seth"! Who Would You Suggest?

More casting news out of Salem!  NBC’s Days of our Lives is now looking to beef up the mid 40’s to mid 50’s range of characters with a casting call for a character under the name of  “Seth”!

According to Soap Opera Digest,  “The show is seeking a daytime or prime-time “name actor only” to start shooting in mid-August for the contract role of Seth, who is described as a 45-55 gorgeous male.”  More info on the casting call revealed,  “All ethnicities. Seth is an outgoing, charismatic extremely handsome man. He is charming and funny but is also opinionated at times, He is very sure of himself which sometimes can be mistaken as arrogance…. The one real chink in his armor is his young son. He is fiercely protective of him. There is some mystery as to their past and he could very well have a darker to his personality when backed into a corner.”

OK DAYS fans, let’s look at the clues … he has a young son… how young?  Is the son already on the canvas, or not?  Who could this character be linked to romantically?  Or, have familial ties too?  And finally, the big question, who would you suggest to the casting directors at DAYS of a “name only actor” with previous soap experience or primetime experience, that could fill the role?  Comment on you casting choice below!

James Hyde would be perfect 😉

i agree with you on this

Yes, he would be gorgeous with KA!

How about Ronn Moss? Kidding!!!!

Sends like they are trying to cast Patch

I would rather see the show give Wally Kurth a contract, who falls in that same age group!

The same thought went through my head!

Justin, has been so good lately….

really giving Adrienne the riot act… and reading her beads….

Wally Kurth is genuine husband material…. I just adore his presence in Salem.

you could see him playing the game… with his lawyer shutz pa… and his intellect… heck… I love his strong take on Justin… and the possibilities are intriguing… where will the writers take him?

the Kiriakis vs the DiMera’s.

They seriously lack minority characters. I would go with Timothy Stickney

There are no actors who are Asian american that are part of the casts of day soap operas bec of casting calls like this one from days. How the heck can there be a known Asian american day soap opera actor when these ancient day soap operas never even hire Asian american actors to be part of the cast? Isn’t brad the only Asian american character from gh and b&b and y&r and days? Really pathetic! The recurring char of brad on gh is beyond offensive. Stupid hollywood often asexualizes Asian american males and very often portray them as horrid stereotypes while very seldom portray them as romantic leading men. The writing is horrid for the only Asian american character from gh and y&r and b&b and days. Most likely this “known actor” that days hires is going to be white.

No matter WHAT the topic is…you twist it to be about racial diversity and the lack of Asians. Obviously its something you feel passionate about…but really….EVERY topic of EVERY post has to be a rant about racial diversity? I‘m really not trying to be rude here…but the phrase “broken record“ is running through my had. Better idea…start a blog. Rant about it all you want. They‘re very good stress relievers!

How about Jack Wagner…his son is the actor who plays J.Js friend(4got his name) and he will be attracted to Kristen…all just a guess.

Does James Scott have an older brother? 🙂

How about John Paul Lavoisier, Rex from OLTL. He is a great actor and we miss seeing him.

I don’t miss seeing him. Also, he’s not 45-55.

He would be great but he is not that old

Robert Newman – ex-josh, GL.

Ted King – ex-Alcazar, GH.

David Forsyth – ex-john, AW.

Richard Burgi – ex-desperate housewives.

I’d love to see Stephen Schnetzer – ex-Cass, AW.

I agree with Robert Newman the rest are boring

Robert Newman is the best one on this list the rest doesn’t have a name other than Ted King

Stephen Schnetzer might be funny, as he played Julie’s brother, Ben, many years ago. LOL.

He was Julies brother Steven…Ben was the name of Julies father.

Thanks, jimh, for correcting me. I totally got the names mixed up.

No way! He played Steve Olson on DOOL- Julie’s brother.

I think Steven Schnetzer played Steve Olson and Richard Burgi played
a lover of Kimberly’s.

Stephan Schnetzer played Steve Olsen, Julie Williams brother, on DOOLs in the late 70s. Any of your choices would be good.

How about Ben Masters who played Julian Crane on Passions

I don’t think he is in that age bracket.

They want a “name” yet they don’t seem to be able to pay for a “name” so I imagine the role would be short-term.

Not necessarily, maybe they just want the right name and are willing to pay!

Michael Park of course. Look no further people. You want handsome well there you go!!!!

He could work too

Right on!

Love Michael Park! But, the role would have to be a good one, so Days doesn’t waste him!

Great choice:)

This sounds like a younger version of Bo!! Please, let this be Hope’s new love now kill Bo already let PR move on and us fans as well!

Kamar de los Reyes (45)

Real Andrews (50)

Timothy Adams (46)

Keith Hamilton Cobb (51)

Bradley Cole (54)

Tom Eplin (53)

Dan Gauthier (50)

for a few

Kamar De Los Reyes is the best on this list other than Bradley Cole

Kamar De Los Reyes is the best on this list next to Bradley Cole

Great suggestions!

Thank you for picking up on the “all ethnicities” thing. It sounds like DAYS is willing to cast the net wide open for the right, charismatic, gorgeous actor. And most ideas are the same-old, same-old. These are great ideas! Keith Hamilton Cobb is a very good choice.

Kamar also a great choice. He sure brings the sexy 🙂

Tom Eplin would be a decent Bo recast! Too bad Days is too afraid to recast Bo!

Ted King!

Ted King or Roger Howarth(if he wasnt so busy now with oltl AND gh AND californication) would be PERFECT for the part

GRANT ALEXANDER

Too bad Shemar Moore is only 43 yrs. old as he is gorgeous and very talented. Maybe they could lower the age by a few years? He would be great.

I hope to see Steven Schnetzer on DOOL, but only as Steve Olson.

Grant Aleksander would be great!

Mathew Ashford…character description kinda sounds like Jack…back from the dead…

Grant Alexander!

Oh and while they are at it with casting former GL stars, how about Tom Pelphrey as Chad Dimera…Just a few thoughts!

Tom Pelphrey as Chad would be wonderful…he’d bring new dimension to the character…not to mention, Tom can brood with the best of them! A Dimera trait.

Jack Wagner… John Stamos… Rick Hearst… Trevor St. John… Ronn Moss… or Winsor Harmon

Rick hearst played Scott Banning DOOL.

Kerr Smith?

How about Rick Hearst?

Rick Hearst as Scott Banning on DOOL.

This is a direct quote from days casting call for seth: “The one real chink in his armor is his young son. He is fiercely protective of him. There is some mystery as to their past and he could very well have a darker to his personality when backed into a corner.” days shouldn’t use phrase “c word the armor” for casting call. It’s not necessary considering how c word is a racial slur towards chinese americans and even Asian americans as a whole. How strange that c word is used on a casting call for actors of all ethnicities.

Would any soap opera ever use the british term for cigarette? Highly doubtful bec that british term for cigarettes is understood as a homophobic slur. entertainment media would be furious if a char nonchalantly uses a homophobic slur when talking abt a cigarette. days wouldn’t use the british term for cigarettes. days shouldn’t use c word for their casting calls.

Are they replacing Seth Burns, hospital administrtor from the strip club scenes?

John Callahan Edmund from AMC should get the role

I know… just bring back Dr. Baker.

Sounds like Steven Earl Johnson to me.Please,Please,Pretty Please!

I think they should cast Antonio Sabato Jr. who played Jaggar on General Hospital or Ted King that played Tomas on One Life To Live

Vincent Irizarry

Ben Masters from passions should be on days of our lives.

Jonah Robinson Joins the Cast of Days of our Lives as Dr. Mark Greene

If you caught last Wednesday’s June 12th episode of Days of our Lives, a new doctor came running into Horton Town Square shirtless; much to the delight and then eventual chagrin of Leo Stark (Greg Rikaart).

Enter actor Jonah Robinson who is now on the Peacock streaming soap opera in the recurring role of Dr. Mark Greene. We meet Mark when Leo tries to hit on him, only to have Mark clarify to Leo he is straight, shocking Leo that his gaydar could have been so off.

Later, Mark is at University Hospital and stepping in for Chanel’s (Raven Bowens) doctor who was called away for the day and he assures Chanel and Johnny (Carson Boatman) that their unborn baby has a strong heartbeat, and at the moment is doing fine.

During the conversation, Mark reveals he is the big brother to his little sister, Felicity (Kennedy Garcia), with whom Chanel loves when she comes to the bake shop.  There was also a little ‘wink-wink’ moment, when Johnny recalls that the doctor on the hit NBC medical drama, ER, was named Dr. Mark Greene (Anthony Edwards), to which Salem’s Mark Greene, says he was named after.

Taking to his Instagram, Robinson shared, “Meet Dr. Mark Greene. So excited to be joining @dayspeacock. It’s an honor to be @kennedyjean04 @louis_tomeo ‘s big brother.”

So, it looks like there are 3 Greene siblings.  Will we eventually meet the parents?

Before Days of our Lives, Jonah was seen on Peacock’s Daisy Jones and the Six, and has appeared in independent movies and musical theatre productions throughout his career.

Do you hope DAYS expands Jonah’s role as the Greene family becomes more entrenched in story? What are you first impressions? Comment below.

AnnaLynne McCord Previews Her Days of our Lives Debut; But is She Playing Abigail?

Next week, circle Wednesday June 19th for the on-screen debut of AnnaLynne McCord said to be a “mystery woman” on Peacock’s Days of our Lives, as Chad (Billy Flynn) and Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) are on the case to try to see if they can find any leads to find an alive Abigail,

McCord, who has her own soapy history having appeared in roles on TNT’s Dallas reboot and the 90210 reboot, comes to Salem with plenty of television experience in primetime.

Now that Chad was told by Clyde Weston (James Read) that Abigail is actually alive? Could McCord be playing a recast Abigail? Since it appears Marci Miller did not come back to the show to reprise her role? Or, is McCord playing a completely different character.

Photo: JPI

To prepare viewers for emergence on the DAYS canvas, AnnaLynne spoke to Soaps.com where she explained the genesis of who she is or might be playing.

Following the end to the SAG-AFTRA strike in November of 2023, the idea of McCord coming to DAYS began to percolate, and she actually started taping at DAYS in January of this year.

Photo: JPI

Citing a lot of upheaval at the time, McCord was not clear on what part she was going to be playing, “To be frank, it was very ambiguous in the beginning. Obviously, there was a writer transition and everything that was going on within the industry politically so to speak. So when I initially came on, no one really knew who I was gonna be. We were figuring it out as we went.”

Photo: JPI

However, McCord did tease, “What fans who are clearly very clever will come to figure out very early on is that a certain gentleman who is not quite so gentle by the name of Clyde Weston has his fingers in the storyline of my character. So I enter day one as ‘Mystery Woman.’”

So, do you think AnnaLynne McCord will be the new and alive Abigail Deveraux DiMera, or do you think she is playing someone brainwashed to believed to be Abigail, or she is playing a totally different character? Share your theories via the comment section below.
