Three former bad men of Salem will be making appearances starting next week on NBC’s Days of our Lives!

According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest (on newsstands now), the trio of actors will figure into the Ciara (Victoria Konefal) and Ben’s (Rob Scott Wilson) story.

Look for George DelHoyo to reprise his role of Orpheus.  He is scheduled to appear on Monday’s February 15th episode, while Orpheus’ on-screen son, Evan Frears (Brock Kelly), will first appear on February 19th.

Meanwhile, James Read returns as Ben’s father, Clyde Weston, when his son visits him in Statesville prison and receives some key information from dear old dad.

Note: this week’s network preemptions due to the impeachment trial of former president Donald Trump may cause a shift in dates, but thus far all new episodes of DAYS can be found on NBC.com, Peacock, and the NBC app.

So, looking forward to seeing Orpheus, Evan and Clyde again? What will these three be up to now? Comment below.

So it looks like ReRon is now in the “rotating cartoon villains” phase of his idiotic writing. Two weeks of faux-Vivian & Ivan, followed by Orpheus & Idiot Son with Redneck Clyde. Who’s got the next slot after that?? Probably another dumb doppleganger story?

I’m sure he’s trying to work out another “Legion of Dumb” story like he had on GH, where all the dumb cartoon villains were suddenly working together for no good reason.

Having said that though, at least Days is still making their episodes available daily on Peacock & NBC.com, for free viewing. That’s a lesson ABC really needs to learn, rather than outright cancelling a whole week of General Hospital.

I couldn’t agree with you more. While there were exciting moments on GH when Ron was writing, that was far outweighed by mediocre storylines that, in the end, felt so shallow. The number of characters that have come and gone at Days over the last year is mine boggling. It’s hard to stay invested when characters you love who are integral parts of the show are no longer around. (An aside — overall I am really enjoying GH these days).

GH has improved considerably since returning from the COVID break. It may be improving even more if some of the rumors going around Hell at the moment prove to be correct. Let’s just say one of ReRon’s dumbest mistakes while he was writing GH may finally be corrected.

Do hope they resolve some other things soon though… Sonny’s amnesia… Dante’s brainwashing. The existence of Whiny Heiny, etc.

“the existence of whiney heiny, etc.” Peter ????

I won’t quit with my dullard listing: Carly, Sonny, Sam, Jason, Peter, Finn, Franco, Michael. YOU WILL NOT MISS THEM… think of the cast

Peter drags down so many characters – it’s not lost on the viewers
take that @Frank Valentini… your crest is boring

Here we go again…same mess different month…can we get rid of them. Ava, Vivian and Gwen then concentrate on writing quality stories for core cast and veterans? This has just gotten ridiculous since Corday turned show over to him. No we have a high school production of Romeo and Juliet on our screens. I’m out after growing up 30+ years ago watching with my mom & grandmother. My mom said peace out when they turned her beloved Patch into Stevano.. lol

Had me at Brock Kelly. Dude is fine!

Me too, Drake. I kept hoping GH would pick him up; we’re seriously in need of eye candy there. Dante looks like Grizzly Adams now and Peter Puke, well, don’t get me started. Thankfully Chase is still hotter than ever. I love the longer, normal hair on some of the men.

Lol. I’m with you 100%. Chase is fine. Days keeps a nice roster at all times though (Eli, Ben, etc..) Always thought GH should’ve snapped up Ford from OLTL. Swoon

Soaphound
Dante is scary looking. Would hate to run into him in the dark. Certainly can’t be appealing to most women, Sam perhaps?

Oh Violet, Sam can have him. I like Jason with Britt anyway. How about Sam’s declaration after Sonny’s funeral? “I’m Sam, Sam I am” or some similar nonsense. Who cares? When someone asked me why I fast-forward her scenes, I replied, “I can’t understand a word she says anyway.” ‘Miss Mumbles’ should be her P.I. alias.

It feels like ground=hog day. Sue me I really miss James Scott, Alison Sweeney and EJami.

Why? So redundant!!

ReRon really deserves to be fired and Ken deserves the cancellation of Days for recycling crap day after day!

OMG, another crazy switcheroo, from Vincent to Orpheus.

Like I said above…. it’s turning into a “Legion of Dumb” story, like the one he wrote on GH. There’s no reason for a one note obsessed wackjob like Vincent to be teaming up with an international ex-spy/terrorist/criminal like Orpheus. And since Vivian is now in the same prison (since when are men & women in the same prison, by the way??) it’s only a matter of time before she’s in on whatever plans Orpheus comes up with. And probably Clyde & Rolf too. I’d count Kristin in on the plan, but she’s planning her own deal with Susan… which of course would be the dumb doppleganger story I referenced in the previous post.

I can’t STAND Chad,Abigail,Gabby!!

Patrick Muldoon and Jennifer Taylor Cast as Mike Manning’s Conservative Parents on ‘The Bay’

The ever-expanding cast of the streaming soap opera, The Bay, has announced two new additions for its upcoming 9th season, including Days of our Lives favorite Patrick Muldoon (ex-Austin Reed). TV fans also know Patrick Muldoon from his role as Richard Hart on Melrose Place.

In story, The Bay will bring Caleb McKinnon’s parents into the mix. Caleb is played by Daytime Emmy-winner and Outstanding Supporting Actor nominee this year, Mike Manning.

According to Deadline, Muldoon, along with Jennifer Taylor (Two and a Half Men), will play Caleb’s ultra-conservative parents. When Caleb married Daniel Garrett (Eric Nelsen), they all but abandoned him.  The season looks to bring a major story for Manning and hopefully and eventually love and acceptance from Caleb’s parents.

The casting news doesn’t stop there. Rhonda Ross has been tapped to play Colleen Givens, the biological mother of Pete Garrett’s (Kristos Andrews) wife Vivian (Karrueche Tran) in the new season.

Coleen is brought into the mix when Pete searches for Colleen after Vivian becomes ill. In the backstory, Colleen is a jazz singer who gave Vivian up for adoption at birth. Now she may be Vivian’s only hope to stay alive.
