I for one enjoy watching Chandler Massey’s acting. I really miss him on Days of Our Lives. I think he’s such a great actor that he’ll exceed in whatever direction he decides to take. I can’t wait to see him appear on the big screen because of his potential. Good luck Chandler!

Good, bad, or a mediocre actor is irrelevant to me when it comes to Chandler…LOL. I just take him all in. He is so absolutely gorgeous, I could just stare at him for hours.

Gosh, DAYS isn’t the same without him. TPTB must have been totally crazy to treat him like crap when he only stated in an informal gathering he was “thinking about going back to school” after his contract would be up by the end of 2013. Those egomaniacs immediately rushed to that total fail of a recast and fired him five months before the end of his contract. That was virtually the end of WilSon, one of the most successful couples and storylines. Since Chandler probably never will return to DAYS after everything that happened, let’s hope that TPTB at least… Read more »

Every single time I pass NewWill on screen, I cringe and wish Chandler was back in the role. I cannot believe that Days execs don’t feel the same way too.

I wouldn’t want him back now. I hear the storyline is beyond awful and dumb. But I wish they hadn’t axed him before he could have been part of the wedding. I would have watched and cried for sure. I stayed well away from it all with the recast. Chandler should have been allowed to stay at least for the duration to finish the storyline’s arc of Will & Sonny getting married. With the recast it just made no sense whatsoever. And I regret that we never got a dance with them before Chandler’s exit.

I’m so excited to see Chandler Masey on Bad Judge. I wish he would go back to day’s he is so missed. He was the best WIll ever, and the Best Chemistry between him and Sonny. They had the most believeable relationship ever.

So excited and what a better way to start out the new year on January 1st to see Chandler on my screen again. He is a gifted actor who touched and touches many hearts with his honesty and acting. I admin a fan page group on Facebook dedicated to him and Freddie called the Chandler Massey and Freddie Smith Fan Page. He will always remain in my heart and so many as the true Will Horton. He is missed my so many as the character he inherited but owns, Will Horton. The best of luck to him always.

I can’t wait either to see him back on screen and what a great way to start the new year! I wish him tons of success with all that he wants to achieve!

And I hope he never considers returning to DAYS. They treated him like crap and besides they massacred Will. I just hope Chandler has no regrets for the time he was on DAYS, because he excelled!

Performance is all about talent, casting and direction: it all come together in the superb role of Chandler as Will H. His role in ’16 Love’ was boring: the chemistry was just not there. Chan in his live interviews is charming, personable, guileless, and earthy: irrespective of who and why someone turns you one, Chan does it for everyone. How much psychoanalysis he has had, to what extent he is enacting his own struggles, nothing matters because as Will H he was as real as it gets. Having said that, While I adore him, and Will miss him, I think… Read more »

Thanks, Mike, for lighting the last candle: pass my review onto Chan to see if he is up for the serious role of Achilles: then find a ‘Sonny’ to cast as his Patroclus. This role is what Will fill his acting roles to his personality: Achilles is blond and built, but pouty, has tantrums, is jealous, possessive, strong, brave and fearless…go for it Chan…

Although not on screen much in the movie Angels in Stardust when he was Chandler was very charming. Loved him. Looking forward to seeing him tonight on NBC!

This feels like the best news I’ve heard in quite awhile (perhaps that’s a bit pathetic). Every time I see NuWill on the screen, I can’t help thinking that Chandler would convert the same exact repulsive dialogue into captivating magic with just the right inflection, gesture, or timing. As Will, Chandler gave the impression of not acting, but instead actually seemed to be experiencing the events on the screen in the moment. It is criminal that for months while secretly casting Chandler’s replacement, the show wasted Chandler’s talent upon complete drivel, when there were so many wonderful stories he could… Read more »

Very nicely said! I agree with all you said. Chandler will bounce back from this odious behaviour that he had to endure. Shame on DAYS indeed to have had the need to destroy something that was working. I’m glad Chandler is far far away from the show now. I hope he gets decent job offers – his talent and range is obvious. Don’t want to see him being type-cast. But his studies are equally important and he’ll get his time to shine and thrive in due time for sure!

This is a little off-topic, but the funny thing is that the actor playing NuChad, Billy Flynn, seems to be doing a remarkable job. I rather enjoyed Casey Deidrick’s portrayal of Chad, whom I found completely engaging and likeable, even in his supposedly anti-social moments. NuChad, however, seems to be adding a surprisingly nuanced style to the otherwise dreary lines, making the character far more three-dimensional than I realized the character could be. Seeing him repeatedly smile at the most unusual times (much like Chandler), and respond to vitriol with outwardly-appearing kindness has been completely disarming and quite charming.

I like Billy Flynn too. I hope the writers don’t make Chad out to be bad.

Hey guys, give the show a break: they gave Chan a fabulous 4-year experience (from a mop-haired adolescent to a muscular, butch, swaggering, crew-cut stud: went from boxers to briefs, and hair on his chest), and then he was unfaithful: he declared to the world audience he was leaving for a new boyfriend…before telling the boyfriend (and then there was Bryan: Will and Chan are very, very jealous in real life and on screen…recall Sammi’s boyfriends: Chan is even jealous of Christian) The producers sulked, stomped, threw dishes, and is/are now dating a new Guy. This was a first-love for… Read more »

Of course I’m excited to see Chandler Massey tonight on Bad Judge and wish he would come back to daytime, even if on another soap, such as Y&R.

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Abe Goes to the Light While John Faces Off with MarDevil

Monday’s highly-anticipated episode of Days of our Lives did not disappoint. In fact, we think that this episode should be a strong contender for DAYS to consider for one of their Outstanding Drama Series submissions for next year’s Daytime Emmys.  Why? It has it all – emotional heart with Abe’s journey to and from the light, touching flashbacks, a great performance by James Reynolds, and some special effects and editing during the John (Drake Hogesytn) vs. MarDevil scenes, which also gave us a delicious performance by Deidre Hall.

At the start of the episode, Abe has flatlined after being shot as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) tries to revive him, but they are losing him.  As this is going on, Paulina (Jackée Harry), Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) and Eli (Lamon Archey) are gathered at the hospital awaiting news on Abe’s condition.  Later, Eli decides to go find out what is happening with Abe, and gets the shock of his life when he walks in on Abe flatlining, while Kayla tells him that Abe is gone.  Eli implores her to try to bring him back. He tells the others they are working on trying to save Abe, as Julie and Paulina bond, and later, Lani must call Theo and Brandon to let them know about Abe’s condition.

Julie reminisces about Abe, and how they have known each other for 40 years, our wink-wink that this is James Reynolds’ 40th anniversary episode.   Then, we see Abe has gone to the light wearing a white sweater and who should he see but his beloved late wife, Lexie.  No, it’s not Renee Jones, but an actress who delivers Lexie’s lines, since it had been previously reported that Jones was unavailable for the episode.  In scenes with the replacement Lexie, Reynolds showed us why he is an MVP of DAYS.  He acted up a storm and brought the emotion regardless of who was standing there.

 

However, longtime viewers got a wonderful surprise when flashback clips of scenes between Renee Jones and Reynolds were shown and they were some major moments in the history of Abe and Lexie’s relationship including: the moment when Abe learns Lexie’s pregnant, the moment when he is disgusted by Lexie’s betrayal when he learned of her involvement in the Zack baby switch storyline, and what she did to Bo and Hope, all because she was desperate for a child. Later, it’s the five-hankie moment of when Lexie, who was dying from a brain tumor, passes away in Abe’s arms.

After all the flashbacks, Lexie tells Abe he needs to go back and not to come with her to heaven. He has children, and people who love him and need him. Eventually, he says his goodbyes to Lexie and returns to the present, just as Kayla is about to call his time of death in the hospital room. All of a sudden, Abe’s heart begins to beat.

Photo: JPI

Kayla brings Julie, Eli, Lani, and Paulina the news that Abe will need surgery, but he will make it.  Then, Paulina and Lani make their way to see him. In another emotional moment, they tell him how much they love him (Paulina looks worried about her lie being exposed that Lani is not really Abe’s bio-daughter).  As the episode comes to its conclusion, we see the back of Lexie making sure Abe is safe and sound among the living, while signifying she is watching over him.

And if that was not enough, this episode also picked up where John had confronted MarDevil in the church, letting Satan knows he is on to him and that he is not going to win … he is going to get Marlena back.  Satan drives home the point that Marlena belongs to him now.  John is mortified as the cross on the church wall turns upside down. Later to show off his prowess and control, MarDevil turns the holy water blood red. As the scene progresses, MarDevil is jumping all over the church and showing up in different spots.

Photo: JPI

John then gets the lowdown on how Satan struck a deal with Marlena to let Doug (Bill Hayes) live if she let him in.  That is followed, by some of the back-story of Marlena’s first possession over 25 years ago, and why it happened when she was alone and very distraught.  MarDevil even goes on to say that he tried once before to regain control of Marlena during the Salem Serial Killer storyline, but it did not work out that time, because all the victims turned out to be alive.  MarDevil brings up Stefano and how he had made Marlena believe John was dead which left her vulnerable.  He goes on to relate that Doug was the gateway for Marlena’s re-possession.

Photo: JPI

MarDevil tells John what she did with Doug by committing him and how she wanted to kill Julie. John knows that Marlena can hear him and tries to bring her back, but as the devil struggles with that, ultimately, he wins and begins to show his strength to John tossing him around the church, where he is eventually is knocked unconscious and then dragged to, we don’t know where, by the MarDevil!

Throughout the scenes, Deidre Hall looked like she was having so much fun playing the devilish one in this campy storyline revisited.

So, what did you think of James Reynolds performance and his 40th anniversary episode? What was your favorite moment? Are you glad John knows for certain now that Marlena is once again possessed? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Jensen Ackles Shares Heartfelt Message on Death of ‘Rust’ DP Halyna Hutchins: “This Has Been a Tragedy of Epic Proportions”

Former Days of our Lives and Supernatural star, Jensen Ackles (Ex-Eric and Ex-Dean)  took to his Instagram over the weekend to pay tribute to cinematographer, Halyna Hutchins who was tragically killed in New Mexico, on the set of the film Rust in which Ackles co-starred with Alec Baldwin and Frances Fisher. Baldwin is also one of the producers of the film.

Last Thursday, in the initial investigation reports surfaced that Baldwin discharged a “prop gun” leading to the death of Hutchins and injuring director, Joel Souza.  Since that time it has been reported that Baldwin was told by the assistant director, David Halls, that the weapon was a “cold gun” meaning not loaded with live rounds following its preparation by the film set’s armorer, Hannah Gutierrez.  But in his affidavit statement, Halls says he was unaware that the prop gun contained live rounds when it was given to Baldwin for his scene.

The scene Baldwin was rehearsing was inside a church building at the Bonanza Creek Ranch. In new affidavit’s, it was noted that Baldwin was ‘cross drawing’ the weapon and pointing the gun towards the camera lens.

A grief-stricken Ackles shared:  “I’m not even sure where to start.  This has been a tragedy of epic proportions that we are all still processing. Earlier last week I felt compelled to tell Halyna just how awesome I thought she was. I told her how incredible I thought her camera shots were and just how exciting it was to watch her and her team work. Truly. She laughed and said thank you and gave me a hug. I’ll forever be thankful we had that moment.  She had a spunk and passion that infected the entire crew from the top down. She was an inspiration. My heart and prayers go out to Halyna’s husband, son and the rest of her family. There just aren’t enough words to express what an immense loss this is. She will be incredibly missed by all of us who knew and admired her.”

Since Hutchins’ death, a video also surfaced of Ackles discussing his concerns for gun safety on the set of Rust at a Supernatural convention in Colorado prior to the tragedy.

Jensen told the crowd: “I’ve got a 6 a.m. call tomorrow to have a big shoot-out. They had me pick my gun. They were like, ‘Alright, what gun would you like?’ and I was like, ‘I don’t know?’ and the armorer was like, ‘Do you have gun experience?’ I was like, ‘A little.’ And she’s like, ‘OK, well, this is how you load it, this is how we check it and make sure it’s safe. “So she’s like, ‘OK, I’m gonna put some blanks in there and I want you to just go and fire off a couple rounds towards the hill.’ And I was like, ‘OK.’ So I put the belt on, I put the gun there, and I walked out and she’s like, ‘Just make sure that you know, you pull the hammer all the way back and you aim at your target.’ And I was like, ‘OK, I got it.’  The footage was originally on You Tube, but now has been taken down.

The investigation remains and open and active on what occurred on the set of Rust, according to the Santa Fe New Mexico Sheriff’s office.

So, what do you think about Jensen’s tribute in the wake of the Rust tragedy? Comment below.
