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.

Kristian Alfonso Bids Farewell to DAYS as Final Episode Airs Today Sharing; “Thank YOU From The Bottom Of My Heart For Welcoming Me Into Your Homes All Of These Years”

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020 marks the final appearance of Kristian Alfonso’s iconic run as Hope Williams on NBC’s Days of our Lives, a role she played on and off for more than 37 years.  Make no mistake about it, Alfonso was a staple of Salem and the DAYS family since she made her debut back in 1983.

However, over the summer viewers learned she would not be returning to the show when the series began production again in September, after she was told they were planning on resting the character of Hope for five months or so.  A decision that prompted Kristian to make a decision to leave the show for good and start a new chapter in her life.

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”

 

So, are you sad that Kristina will be gone for DAYS on-screen after today?  Share your thoughts om this, her final airdate, via the comment section below.
