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.

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.

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 »

DAYS Brandon Barash On Stefan’s Resurrection: “You’ll See Some Revenge, Corporate Takeovers, Losing a Memory … Maybe Gaining of Memories”

Dr. Rolf is at it again on Days of our Lives! While Jake DiMera has met his maker, apparently his twin brother, Stefan O DiMera is coming back to life.  That sets the stage for Brandon Barash to reprise his original DAYS role.

In a brand new interview with his on-screen brother, Dan Feuerriegel (EJ) on the Days of our Lives You Tube Channel, Barash talks on what viewers can expect once Stefan is completely back in action, and how he feels about taking on the darker twin once again.

Brandon teased: “You’ll see some revenge, corporate takeovers, losing a memory … maybe gaining of memories.”  With Stefan back in the DiMera mix, look for the two brothers to not always see eye-to-eye. Barashs shared that they’ll be, “Butting heads for sure”.

Meanwhile, will Stefan and his true love, Gabi (Camila Banus) reunite once she knows he is alive? Barash weighs-in on that and more ‘burning’ questions.

You can check out the chat below.

Now, let us know, are you glad that Stefan O DiMera is back on the Salem canvas? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

BREAKING NEWS: Days of our Lives Ending Its Run on NBC, Moving to Peacock Starting in September

In a major move, Days of our Lives, the longest-running scripted series of all-time on NBC, is exiting the television network and will now be in its new home on the NBCUniversal streaming platform, Peacock.

The shift marks the end of DAYS’ nearly 57 year-run on broadcast television. Days of our Lives debuted on NBC back on November 8th, 1965.

Look for all-new episodes daily of the series to begin on Peacock starting on September 12th, along with the show’s library already available to stream for Peacock Premium subscribers.  According to a press release from Peacock, “The historic move to Peacock creates the ultimate destination for daytime fans to access the library, new episodes and Peacock Original Days of Our Lives: Beyond Salem in one place.”

In its place, NBC will fill the daytime drama’s current timeslot with NBC News Now, an hour-long news show anchored by Kate Snow, Aaron Gilchrist, Vicky Nguyen and Morgan Radford. According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC affiliates will also have the option to add local news to the hour.

In a statement, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming chairman Mark Lazarus shares: “This programming shift benefits both Peacock and NBC and is reflective of our broader strategy to utilize our portfolio to maximize reach and strengthen engagement. With a large percentage of the Days of Our Lives audience already watching digitally, this move enables us to build the show’s loyal fanbase on streaming while simultaneously bolstering the network daytime offering with an urgent, live programming opportunity for partners and consumers.”

NBC’s decision means it leaves only three daytime soaps on American broadcast TV: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful. 

DAYS has found recent streaming success with its limited-series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem Chapters 1 and 2, which introduced the viewing audience to the Peacock platform.

To watch Days of our Lives on Peacock, you will need a premium-tier paid subscription at $4.99 per month. The service offers an an ad-free experience at $9.99 per month.

We will have more on this developing story.

So, what do you think of NBC removing DAYS from its daytime line-up, while moving it to their owned-streaming platform, Peacock? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Brandan Barash Shares Reaction to Jake’s Death on Days of our Lives: “It Was Fun Getting To Know You”

This week on Days of our Lives, Jake (Brandon Barash) met his untimely demise, when he was shot by a mugger.  Thus, signaling what would seem to be the end of the line for the character.

However, on today’s episode of the NBC soap opera, Jake visited a grieving Ava (Tamara Braun), so perhaps there is more than a ‘ghost of a chance’ that Barash is sticking around.

Photo: JPI

As previewed exclusively last month during our virtual interview with DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati …the Salem scribe revealed there would be another death in Salem, following the murder of Abigail Deveraux DiMera (Marci Miller), and the character would be ‘dead-dead’.

However, speculation is running wild that with the return of Dr. Rolf, that perhaps Jake will be resurrected … or Barash will once again play Jake’s twin, Stefan O. DiMera!

On Instagram, Barash had some fun with Jake’s demise with comparison side-by-side photos – one of which features Barash as Jake covered in blood, and reading the Handbook for the Recently Deceased!

Barash captioned his pic: “How it started/how it’s going. #ripjake It was fun getting to know you. 🙏🥃”

So, what do you think about DAYS killing Jake? Do you think Brandon will be sticking around Salem? If so, as who? Comment below.
