Here’s a first look image of the new Will Horton played by Chandler Massey.   Soap Opera Digest is reporting that  Massey replaces Dylan Patton in the role and has already begun filming at DAYS.  Check out this new photo of Chandler with his on-screen mom, Sami played by Alison Sweeney. 

Will’s dad is Lucas played by Bryan Dattilo.  We wish Chandler best of luck in his new digs in Salem! According to SOD, A DAYS insider said, ” We just felt they needed to make a change with the story coming up.”  Wonder what that storyline could be that faciliated the actor switcheroo?

Wow. Ali does not look old enough to be his mother. They really need to be careful about aging kids when they have such youthful mothers.

He really does look like he could be Sammi and Lucas’ son, although I agree with the age issue! I did like the old Will, but his mop of hair kept him looking so dour all the time. Or, maybe he was? I’m all for looking hip and courant, but when your hair hides your emotions, change your hair.

At any rate, congrats for the new cast member.

I agree, they totally look related more brother and sister though…but at the same time the previous Will looked like Lucas and not Sami so now its visa versa…whatevs…When will the episodes with the new Will start airing?…ps does anybody else think that it might look awkward if they have this actor and Mia dating since she looks so young?

Current Days of our Lives and former All My Children reboot stars, Cady McClain (Jennifer, Days, Ex-Dixie, AMC) and Rob Scott Wilson (Ben, Days, Ex-Pete AMC) chat with Michael Fairman in an enlightening and exclusive conversation for the Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube.

McClain, who recently took over the role of Days of our Lives beloved heroine Jennifer Horton from mainstay Melissa Reeves (who chose to stay with her family in Nashville during Covid-19 thus forcing the series to recast the role for now) talks about stepping into the key part of the Salem canvas, plus the recent Jennifer/Kate fight over Jack (Matthew Ashford), and how the legacy series is coping with production during Covid-19.

Cady is no stranger to be a recast.  She was the second actress to play Dixie on ABC’s All My Children, as well as the second actress to play Rosanna on As the World Turns, and she had previously taken over the role of Kelly Andrews on The Young and the Restless.

Daytime Emmys To Remain Virtual For Upcoming 2021 Ceremony

With an uncertain situation of when live events can get back to normal, or as they have been in the past prior to the coronavirus pandemic, The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) announced today that it plans on keeping next year’s Daytime Emmys award show virtual, to allow for the 2022 awards cycle to stay on track.

In fact, all of NATAS’s award ceremonies including: the News and Documentary Emmys, Technology & Engineering Emmys and the Sports Emmys will also remain virtual next year.

The Daytime Emmys became the first major award show to air a virtual presentation that others followed back in late June of this year and aired on CBS.

In a statement, NATAS chairman and CEO Adam Sharp expressed on the organization’s decision:“The current timetables articulated by manufacturers project mass availability of vaccinations for the entire U.S. population by mid-summer 2021, potentially permitting a return to more traditional in-person ceremonies later in the fall. However, we have determined that delaying our 2021 events to possibly allow for a compressed calendar of in-person Emmy ceremonies late in the year would result in unacceptable delays to our awards cycle for 2022. Instead, we have decided to remain “virtual” in the format of our ceremonies for 2021 while relying on a substantially pre-COVID awards calendar. In so doing, we believe we will be best-positioned to return to a full, on-time, traditional schedule of in-person ceremonies in 2022.

The dates currently under consideration for the 48th annual Daytime Emmys which would be via two or three nights of presentations are: a combination of dates from Friday, June 25, Saturday, July 17 and/or Sunday, July 18.

For those entering the competition, the entry deadline is February, 17, 2021 with  the nominations not to come till May or June.

So, what do you think about the Daytime Emmys going virtual again for 2021? Comment below.
