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.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Cady McClain Ends Her Great Run as Jennifer; But Not Before A ‘Wink-Wink’ Nudge-Nudge’ to AMC’s Dixie ‘Poison Pancake’ Debacle

Wednesday’s episode featured another solid performance by two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Cady McClain as Jennifer Horton Devereux as it was the day of her mother, Laura’s (Jaime Lyn Bauer) funeral.

Last week, longtime viewers were saddened that the character of Dr. Laura Horton was killed-off.  The question remains did she fall accidentally and hit her head in a struggle with Gwen (Emily O’Brien), or did Gwen intentionally kill Laura?

Yesterday was also the final episode of McClain in the role of Jennifer – as far as know for now.   In story, following Laura’s funeral, Jennifer was heading to Boston to be with her brother Mike, to settle their mother’s estate and go through her belongings, etc.

Cady had taken over the role of Jennifer from Melissa Reeves, who chose to stay in Nashville during the Covid-19 pandemic.  As part of her departure, head writer, Ron Carlivati and the writing team, delivered a little wink-wink nudge-nudge to soap viewers and those of McClain’s time as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children.

In one of the most controversial soap death scenes of all-time, and one that was not kind to McClain, Dixie was killed-off the ABC daytime drama series after eating poison peanut butter pancakes. Fast-forward to 2021, and in an attempt to make DAYS Jennifer feel better, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) whips up some banana pancakes with extra peanut butter!  When Jennifer declines them, Julie says she thought she liked them, to which Jennifer replied, “I used to.  But I had a bad experience with them once.  Now I can’t even look at them.”  Julie questions, “Bad experience?”  Then Jennifer says, “I’d rather not talk about it.”

In our books, McClain got the last laugh here getting to do a nod to the audience, who has followed her soap career for decades including the the 2007 killing of Dixie … by pancakes.

Previously, Cady shared in a 2020 interview with EW.com about the subject: “It was a dig at me by one of the writers that very much wanted to put me in my place. I had stepped out of line and they wanted to put me back in line, and I was going to eat those pancakes and I was going to learn my lesson, and I certainly did.”

So, what did you think of the mention of the ‘pancakes”? Will you miss Cady as Jennifer? Comment below.

DAYS Emily O’Brien Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

She has been a polarizing character since her arrival in Salem, with some fans screaming Gwen is sucking up too much airtime.  HOWEVER, the performances by Emily O’Brien (Gwen) show an actress on top of her craft who can play, as Gwen called herself, “A miserable, vindictive bitch”, or a young woman so deeply-emotionally wounded that you might just come around and eventually feel some empathy for her.

Last week, while the soaps were pre-empted for most of the week due to the senate impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump, DAYS posted all of its weekly episodes online on NBC.com, the NBC app, or on the Peacock streaming platform, and O’Brien’s work was a standout.

It all came to a boiling point when Laura (Jaime Lyn Bauer) and Gwen have the long-awaited confrontation in Gwen’s room at the Salem Inn, where O’Brien goes from Gwen baiting Laura to tell her dirty secret of her long-ago affair with Jack (Matthew Ashford), to her utter anger at how because of it, Laura trashed Gwen’s entire life.

 

Laura reveals the guilt she felt for sleeping with Jack, so much so, that she would do anything to save Jennifer (Cady McClain) and Jack’s marriage.  In delight at getting to the root of the truth, Gwen responds: “You slept with Jack? That is just perfect! My father slept with his mother-in-law!”

Then, Laura shares how it happened.  They were both at the “Meadows” finding their ‘truest selves’ and they were both using other names – she, Monica and he, Clark, and Laura had never seen a photo of Jack before to know it was him!  Gwen wants to burst out in hysterical laughter, but then she becomes filled with rage knowing that if Laura hadn’t bought off her birth mother, Tiffany, her own life would have been very different.  She goes on to say that she and Abigail (Marci Miller) might even be close as sisters, but instead of “borrowing her clothes, she borrowed her husband” alluding to sleeping with Chad (Billy Flynn).  Next, Gwen wants to make Laura pay and lets Laura know that, “All the damage that you did, can’t be undone.” When Laura tries to leave, Gwen stops her and says in no uncertain terms, “I want revenge, because you ruined my life and you’re not going to get away with it!”

Photo: JPI

Next, we see that there had been a struggle with Laura dead on the floor bleeding out of her head.  A freaked-out Gwen does not know what to do.  She realizes she will be accused of murder.  With no one in town to call, she decides to call her father, Jack.  When he shows up at the Salem Inn, Jack is shocked, and grief-stricken to see his mother-in-law, dead.  Gwen swears to Jack this was an accident and that she did not kill Laura, and that he has to believe her.  Jack decides he will stand by his daughter.  Gwen wants to get rid of the body, Jack says he can’t be involved in a cover-up, so he calls Rafe (Galen Gering).  When Rafe arrives at the crime scene he is very suspicious of Gwen, and takes her down to the station.

Scene after scene, O’Brien layered her performances with venomous and ominous undertones, illustrating a woman with so much emotional baggage who becomes desperate to save herself.  For all these reasons, Michael Fairman TV names Emily’s work, The Power Performance of the Week.
