Fitness model/trainer/actor TJ Hoban has landed a role on NBC Days of our Lives, and he tweeted the news on his Twitter account.

Hoban who often graces the cover of muscle and physique magazines told his followers on social media: “Just booked Days of our Lives. Starts filming next week, airs in Oct. Can’t give details, so stay tuned;)”

So, who do you think TJ will play when he emerges in Salem in October?

Seems like lots of characters new and old are coming to DAYS to kick off their 50th anniversary celebration into high gear come November.

Since i don’t know Tj i will not judge . I hope he is a good actor . I find that too many soaps over the years have employed young actors more for their looks than acting abilities . You add bad writing to the mix and you have a soap in danger of being cancelled . If i was Days i would tone it down with the new fresh and young actors that look like models . Once again not judging Tj and hope to be pleasently surprised . In Australia there is a great arena of young australian… Read more »

Maybe a new Shawn-Douglas.

Very true since Bo is back, I can totally see that.

I hope he’s the new Sonny as long as he can act. We don’t need another Guy Wilson.

This guy totally not the new Sonny. that role will go to Robert Gorrie (OLTL). He’s probably the new Shawn-D.

Now that we know he’s not a new Shawn Douglas Brady, I’m guessing he will be Andrew Donovan…Shane and Kim’s son. He’s younger than his half sister Eve and older than his sister Theresa.

T.J. Hogan is too old to play Sonny. Sonny as a character on the Days is 24-25, Freddie Smith who play the role is 27, Hoban is 10 years older than Smith 🙁 As I read somewhere … ” that Freddie Smith may be ready to reprise the role” 🙂

I mis-read the headline as “TJ Hooker” and got very excited for a moment. How cool would it be for Bill Shatner to show up as his cop character to whip the Salem PD into shape! How do I start a petition for this to happen?

Sami’s new boyfriend if this is not a contract role!

Not happy with all the newbies. Would love if they hired a new Will. It was great seeing Doug and Julie yesterday, but give them some meaty storyline not just gushing about cruises and yoga.

I read that the actor who plays Will’s contract is up in August so hopefully either he leaves (which I doubt) or the show fires him and recasts.

I’m hope and, expect that Guy renews his contract for another year.

He appears to be too old for Sonny (but you never know). I thought he might be Sonny’s older brother, Alex.

I’m thinking he might be an EJ recast. Rumors have been floating about in Burbank about re-casting EJ. He certainly has the physical image of the EJ character.

Five bucks sez if he gets a residence it’s either mauve or putty. Loved how the Italian DeMera estate used the same paint color of half the sets in Salem.

If y&r has a thing for minimally talented blondes, DOOL has a thin for minimally talented male fitness models.

Another new character or he a recast for Sonny? Hard to tell. They don’t really need all these new actors do they? What they need is a good storyline – Whatever happened to the character at the Hotel, Derrick or what ever his name was – I mean, he was barely utilized on the show and it looks like his “days” are over.

could be the new EJ

What is a Model/spokesperson/actor – is he also a house painter? What’s up with these models who think they can act? Some of them do have a marginal amount of acting potential but for the most part, most of them don’t seem to have technical acting chops.
The only actor on Days who impresses me is Mr. Aniston who plays Victor and can out-act anyone on that show with a mere glance.

Raven Bowens is the New Chanel on DAYS

There has been a casting switcheroo at Days of our Lives.   Precious Way is out in the role of Chanel Dupree and the part had been recast.

According to Soap Opera Digest, look for Bowens to first air on-screen on the July 6th episode.  Apparently, she has been taping at the DAYS set since April.

Raven has previously appeared on All Rise, Insecure, The New Edition Story and Future Man.

You can follow her on Instagram here.

DAYS Alison Sweeney Previews the New EJami

Coming up on Days of our Lives, Dan Feurerriegel take over the role of EJ DiMera on-screen, and the character is making quite the timely, or untimely return to Salem now that Sami (Alison Sweeney) has been hitting the sheets with her ex-husband, Lucas (Bryan Dattilo).

Feurerriegel is stepping into the coveted role of EJ made soap-famous by James Scott, who left the series back in 2014 and never returned.

Now the question is can Sweeney and Feurerriegel strike soap gold with their re-imagined duo known as “EJami”?

 

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Alison Sweeney opened up about the casting, working with Dan, and the future of EJami sharing: “To be honest, I was nervous when I heard they were recasting EJ.  That’s a big role to fill, I mean, James Scott was definitely a fan favorite and EJ is such a memorable role in the story and certainly in Sami’s life.”

Sweeney said of sharing scenes with Feurerriegel, “Dan has been fantastic. I’ve really enjoyed working with him. He clearly understood the importance of the task ahead.”

As for what fans of EJami may be in for, Sweeney noted:  ” I hope those ‘EJami’ fans see the couple they were so connected to, but of course, in a new, different way.”

So will you be giving the new EJami a chance? Looking forward to Dan’s debut, or are you Team Lumi all the way? Share your thoughts via the comment section below. But first check out this week’s promo for DAYS.

DAYS Billy Flynn Opens Up To Maurice Benard About His Battle with Addiction on All-New ‘State of Mind’

In a terrific episode of Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) State of Mind You Tube series, the actor welcomes another one of the best actors on daytime, Days of our Lives star Billy Flynn (Chad DiMera, Days of our Lives).

What made this so compelling was Billy Flynn’s ability to talk openly, frankly, and with great understanding about his battles with addiction which he notes have been alcohol, drugs, and the cycles he has found himself in within his life and how he was able to break free of them, and the work he continues to do to keep him from falling back into them.

Flynn shares how much of his adult life was greatly impacted by his childhood, and explained to Benard, how he acted out when he was younger. He also shares how his addiction caused issues for awhile with his job at Days of our Lives.

This episode is a powerful one to watch for anyone struggling with issues of addiction, dependency, suicide, having problems at work, and trying to not self-destruct, which so many of us do, once we seemingly get what we what or while we are trying to obtain it.

Bravo to Billy and Maurice for bringing this forward and to the audience.

Watch Billy’a visit on State of Mind below, followed by a bonus segment where Flynn asks Benard some ‘hard-hitting’ questions.

What did you think of what Billy shared with Maurice? Comment below.
