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!

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.

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… Read more »

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!

Robert Newman – ex-josh, GL.

Ted King – ex-Alcazar, GH.

David Forsyth – ex-john, AW.

Richard Burgi – ex-desperate housewives.

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

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

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.… Read more »

Photo: JPI

After getting a copy of the latest Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now, which features, “Who Killed Charlie?” on the cover, Manning shared in a post on Friday: Everybody has a motive to want this guy dead.” 😂 Not exactly how I pictured my first soap magazine cover, but at least we’re having a good time with it. It’s been fun Salem. I’ll love you all forever. ✌🏼💙. Thank you to NBC, to everyone involved, and most of all to the fans that were along for the ride w/ this crazy character. You’re amazing. I’ll always be grateful for you.  Excited to share what’s next as soon as I can.   Arrivederci. -Charlie/Mike”

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Cady McClain Ends Her Great Run as Jennifer; But Not Before A ‘Wink-Wink’ Nudge-Nudge’ to AMC’s Dixie ‘Poison Pancake’ Debacle

Wednesday’s episode featured another solid performance by two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Cady McClain as Jennifer Horton Devereux as it was the day of her mother, Laura’s (Jaime Lyn Bauer) funeral.

Last week, longtime viewers were saddened that the character of Dr. Laura Horton was killed-off.  The question remains did she fall accidentally and hit her head in a struggle with Gwen (Emily O’Brien), or did Gwen intentionally kill Laura?

Yesterday was also the final episode of McClain in the role of Jennifer – as far as know for now.   In story, following Laura’s funeral, Jennifer was heading to Boston to be with her brother Mike, to settle their mother’s estate and go through her belongings, etc.

Cady had taken over the role of Jennifer from Melissa Reeves, who chose to stay in Nashville during the Covid-19 pandemic.  As part of her departure, head writer, Ron Carlivati and the writing team, delivered a little wink-wink nudge-nudge to soap viewers and those of McClain’s time as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children.

In one of the most controversial soap death scenes of all-time, and one that was not kind to McClain, Dixie was killed-off the ABC daytime drama series after eating poison peanut butter pancakes. Fast-forward to 2021, and in an attempt to make DAYS Jennifer feel better, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) whips up some banana pancakes with extra peanut butter!  When Jennifer declines them, Julie says she thought she liked them, to which Jennifer replied, “I used to.  But I had a bad experience with them once.  Now I can’t even look at them.”  Julie questions, “Bad experience?”  Then Jennifer says, “I’d rather not talk about it.”

In our books, McClain got the last laugh here getting to do a nod to the audience, who has followed her soap career for decades including the the 2007 killing of Dixie … by pancakes.

Previously, Cady shared in a 2020 interview with EW.com about the subject: “It was a dig at me by one of the writers that very much wanted to put me in my place. I had stepped out of line and they wanted to put me back in line, and I was going to eat those pancakes and I was going to learn my lesson, and I certainly did.”

So, what did you think of the mention of the ‘pancakes”? Will you miss Cady as Jennifer? Comment below.
