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 talent that have both the looks and acting skills . The australian soap ” Home and Away ” is a reflection of that : great acting and great writing . Australian actress Lisa Gormley is a jem . I recommend all soap casting people to watch the ” Home and Away ” soap on youtube . Maybe Salem could have an Australian family move there .

Lots of newbies, for sure..

New Sonny?

That would be my guess too…

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.

Jeremy

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.

Blake

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.

Jeremy

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

Carolyn

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

Amanda

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.

Priscilla

could be the new EJ

I’m thinking shawn Douglas

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.
