Those who have been wondering where they may see beloved former Days of our Lives fan favorite James Scott (Ex-EJ) again on the screen, may have found their answer if this new TV sitcom gets picked up!

James has been cast in what seems to be a role that will give him a hilarious star turn in the new TBS comedy pilot entitled Wrecked!  In the premise, according to The Hollywood Reporter: “Wrecked centers group of passengers who, after their plane crashes on a remote island, the group of extremely diverse survivors are forced to adjust to life in a dangerous new world that poses unique threats — mostly brought upon themselves.  From writers Justin Shipley and Jordan Shipley and producer Jesse Hara, the comedy explores the group who, no longer plugged in, must navigate the new society and learn to live without the comforts of 2015 — including social media, WiFi, indoor plumbing and Chipotle.

Think of it as Lost- meets- Gilligan’s Island!  Their are then 10 castaways in which James Scott plays one of them!  He will play the role of Liam! The character is described as: “Confident, charismatic, appealing, natural leader and seemingly the most handsome man in the world — even after a plane crash. He’s done 10 years with British special forces, military police before that and now campaigns for human rights for child war refugees.”

Other actors in the cast include: Asif Ali, Ginger Gonzaga, Ally Maki, and Zach Cregger to name a few. 

So, what do you think about James’ new role?  Comment below!

Sounds like GILLIGAN’S ISLAND. Good for him. I would love to see him play comedy.

As long as it doesn’t turn into slapstick comedy I’ll give it a try. It will be good to see Scott back on the screen.

Doesn’t look like James Scott will be heading back to Days… but I kind of expected him to find work outside of daytime. New sitcoms don’t seem to be doing as well these days though… but I hope it works out for him. I’m sure as an actor it’s nice to try new roles that are different than what you’re known for!

Sue,

The series will be on TBS station, if TBS decides to accept this pilot. They are filming a few episodes to present to TBS. TBS will either accept or reject. If they accept the pilot, then we will know when the series will be begin airing on TBS.

James will keep his fans up-dated on his twitter. I’m sure Michael will keep us up-dated on this blog. He is very informative and always 100% accurate with his information.

I have a question that is not related to this topic. I just read on SOC message Board that actor John de Lancie signed a contract to play EJ on Days.

This sounds ridiculous—John is 66 years old. Does anyone know anything about this—sounds like a ridiculous rumor!

This is wonderful news about James Scott ! He has such a once in a life time talent that is more noteworthy than his good looks. I think this talent will go down in the history books and will stand the test of time. I hope that TBS has the intelligence to embrace this talent . I predict this show will bring TBS many awards! I cannot wait to see this man’s talents once again. Don’t worry about John de Lancie. Days is history in a much different way now. It is ridiculous that anyone thinks they can replace James… Read more »

It is cool, let’s hope this pilot will be picked up.
Anyway if this project doesn’t work out James will find another one, i am looking forward to see him in a comedic role (even on Days, at the beginning of his tenure he showed some snarky charming humor..he was good at it).
It was time for him to show what he can do on prime time. This medium could fit him.

Mr. Scott is a good actor. I hope the new sitcom gets picked up. I for one will be a faithful follower of the program. Days of Our Lives lost a very important piece in the puzzle of characters. Good Luck, Terry Schultz

I think he plays. The role of EJ Dimera quite well and that is his best work and all his fans want him back.
He will always be rem. as EJ Dimera and no other actor will ever be able to step in his shoes. Awesome actor and a role that only he can portray. Hope he returns to Days of Our Lives in the near future.

I can’t imagine James doing a comedy role. But, if it makes him happy, it makes me happy. I hope he knows how much he is missed on DOOL. Forever and always a James Scott fan. Wishing him only the very best.

49th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards: General Hospital, B&B’s John McCook and Y&R’s Mishael Morgan Take Top Honors

Friday night, the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences’ (NATAS) 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were handed out in 15 categories on a live telecast on CBS and streaming on Paramount+.  When the dust settled, it was ABC’s General Hospital who took the night’s top prize for Outstanding Daytime Drama Series.

This marks GH’s continued record-breaking number of wins in this category and brings it up to 15 victories for the iconic show, which is currently in its 59th year on the air.  GH’s executive producer, Frank Valentini accepted the award on behalf of everyone connected with the show, when Drew Barrymore presented the final award of the night.

The night also brought with it the historic win of The Young and the Restless’ Mishael Morgan (Amanda Sinclair). The actress became the first black actress in Daytime Emmy history to ever take home the Lead Actress Daytime Emmy.  In the emotional highpoint of the evening, in terms of acceptance speeches and significance, Morgan spoke to the current generation breaking glass ceilings.

Morgan expressed: “We are breaking glass ceilings left right and center and I am so honored to be a vessel and to experience this moment. Everybody out there today, we can do this thing called equality and unity together.”  In her speech, Mishael shared: “I was born on a tiny island in the Caribbean, and I’m now standing on an international stage and I am being honored regardless of the color of my skin, regardless of my passport, for being the best at what I do, Now there are little girls around the world and no matter what the industry, the vocation they can strive to be the best.”

Veteran actor, John McCook who has played Eric Forrrester on The Bold and the Beautiful for over 35 years, finally won his first ever Emmy after four previous nominations in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series.

The Supporting Actor and Actress in a Drama Series trophies went to two standouts from General Hospital, Kelly Thiebaud (Britt) and Jeff Kober (Cyrus), while Nicholas Alexander Chavez (Spencer), added another mantle to the GH trophy case with his first win for Outstanding Younger Performer.

Days of our Lives writing team led by Ron Carlivati took home the gold for Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series, while GH won for Direction.

The biggest winner in terms of total gold belonged to The Kelly Clarkson Show. When all was said and done, between the Creative Arts ceremonies held last weekend, and last night, the talk show took home 7 awards including: Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show and Talk Show Host. General Hospital followed with five total wins for Daytime Emmys 2022.

The ceremonies featured DAYS Suzanne Rogers (Maggie) anchoring the Lifetime Achievement Award presentation to her longtime co-star John Aniston (Victor), who was not present, with the help of John’s daughter, Jennifer Aniston, who was seen on tape.

Susan Lucci (Ex-Erica, All My Children) made her first public appearance since the passing of her beloved husband, Helmut Huber and introduced the In Memoriam segment.  Grammy-winner Michael Bolton performed his classic tune “How Am I Supposed to Live Without You” during the tribute.

Entertainment Tonight’s Kevin Frazier and Nischelle Turner were the hosts for the telecast, and with the overturning of the Supreme Court Roe vs. Wade decision on everyone’s mind last night, Turner gave a nod to how she and so many others felt, when Frazier told her how nice she looked in her dress. Nishcelle commented, “I chose this dress. It was my choice.”  That moment received huge applause from the audience in attendance.

Check out the full winners circle list from last night’s 49th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards below.
