I call bluff. Nicholas Alamain!

I think it’s great, but put him with anyone but Kate.. EWWWWW. I think Jenn needs a hot lovah.

Kate is pretty much the Salem Welcome Wagon. Pretty much every new male over the age of 30 gets a crack at Kate! But with each passing year, they get younger and younger. I love how they have three former prostitutes in Chloe, Eve, and Kate, each from a different generation of Ho-Dom, each one thinking they are classier than the next! Lmao!! Chloe is on good behaviour these days, but these senior ho’s better settle their respective kettles!!

“Salem Welcome Wagon?” “Ho-Dom?” “Settle their respective kettles?” Oh, you are on fire, Jovin….My compliments! Now come to Port Charles and size up Alexis in your own inimitable fashion!

Loved him on DWTS…can’t wait to have him on DOOL…hopefullly for more than 2-3 episodes!

Not impressed. I like his Greek/Italian looks…other than that…hmmmm, I do not much care.
Perhaps, he will be able to change my mind….I do like the idea of a triangle…loooove Kate. I’d like to see them in action.
Now, who needs an attorney? Kate? Will someone be murdered?

Mo

He’s French.

Celia

Sorry, Mo….he is French by birth, or moved to France as a child. He is not of French descent.
Marini is as an Italian name as you can get….and his mother is Greek.

Mo

My bad. 🙂

Celia

That’s OK, Mo….his accent is very “telling”, very French…..I bet everyone thought the same thing. His surname gave him away for me….so I looked him up when he was on DWTS.

GramS

I loves him in Switched at Birth!!

I am – IN LOVE – with Josh Taylor and Leann Hunley . WOW Roman is thee man of the hour. literally and seriously… he’s so much FUN… he injects humor, tenderness, and care.. and just simple common sense .. and his share of excitement is still ALL their. he comes to bat…

Laughed out LOUD on new years day… when he gets a good laugh with Eric… as dad sows his wild oats… as Anna walks out looking for her erring. just playful romantic good ole tough nut Roman… at his job.

any way : my point…

this new Guy… WITH Kate ? what about Andre ? what about Anna ? what about

Roman. WOWSAH this is a lot of serious drama that could unfold.

I want Kate… LOVE KATE to pieces … with Andre… with this Lawyer… is trouble for kate brewing … she certainly is having a “trying” time with all the menfolk. ie: Chad and Stefan to boot. Lucas…

Kate and Roman
Andre and Anna

this is due’zy

stuff on the horizon… I’m loving these people

Boes

Right on, Patrick, with all your comments! I’m loving this rejuvenated Roman, too.

Mo

Yes, glad to see Roman get story besides choking at the Pub or just serving drinks.

And glad to see Anna back. I thought she and Roman were going to have a romance, but then she brought Tony out. Three’s a crowd girl, even if one is in an urn. I guess it’s a setup for Andre being killed. I hope Andre isn’t actually dead. If so, maybe Tony can return.

Josh Taylor always displayed those qualities when he played Chris Kositchek–the role he should still be playing.

Celia

That’s what my grandmother said, Kit. Chris Kositchek was, apparently, the bomb.

Patrick
Patrick

YES ! @Kit… this is too funny… because I’ve been enjoying him so much… that I’m thinking of him as Chris…

so yes.. @Celia… WOAH… Josh Taylor as Chris… bombs away he took you

be that as it may – Josh as Roman. I’ll take it and welcome his nuanced acting talent with charmed flirtatious getting it aint ya

I’ve wanted to post about his character for a while now. recall? how some posts were sharing… how much they missed Caroline ? Peggy McKay – I LOVE YOU WOMAN. endearingly so… Ms. Matriarch Brady.

and now some posts have remarked.. they are seeing a lot more of Roman

it’s been an absolute transition of Josh Taylor as the Brady Patriarch. his changing jobs… from 35 years at @SPD.. to tending bar . has he not lit up.

it makes it special seeing Roman take to .. his leading the family… and layering his character. it’s a wonderment… to see an actor MOVE us that much

he always seemed to be in the back and or prop to Marlena and even John.

NOW here he is.

i’m going their… SENSATION’al

Satan

Chris Kositchek was a bartender who became an amateur detective. Roman Brady was a detective who has now become a bartender. So basically, he’s returned to his roots.

Celia
Celia

Hi, Kit,
My grandmother said Roman was never a bartender….always a cop….not amaturish as Satan said.
Chris was the bartender. Days switched Roman….and ridvitselfbof Chris.
But, you’re right….better as a bartender….should switch Roman to Chris, the original role Josh was hired to play.

Celia
Celia

…..And, Josh is not the original Roman, either….that “copper” position was delegated to Wayne Northrop.

Who was great never the same when WN left I love DH but making him Roman only about five inches taller etc but I always adored DH as John Black and oh how I missed WN have not watched the show in a decade just lost interest and never came back but I will always hope they stray on the air

Celia

@K/kay.
DH is back to being John Black, Kay…..Josh Taylor took up the character of Roman. I guess it was sort of hard for many to get used to that…..a lot has changed. But, Days is great…you should think about coming back, Kay!!!!!! Try it !! LOL.

Yummy, glad he will be on Days, and just in time for summer shirt less scenes. I’ve loved him since Sex And The City movie to recently on 2 Broke Girls for a season. I’d like to see him with Kate, she is great with younger men. She was a cougar before it came in style.

He’s been around for a while now, I don’t think he’s that much younger than Kate. To old to play Nicholas Alamaine, I would think

Love Gilles! From Sex and The City to Brothers and Sisters to Dancing With the Stars! He is completely stunning and can actually act…great dancer, too! I was so looking forward to his role on B&B but it turned out to be a 5 minute walk-on. It seems though this might be an actual role, in only for a short but at least substantial time.

Great news!

Boes

Now that’s a newbie I’m looking forward to!

Anna

Not Kate… for christ sake… Kate has slept with every male on the show (age appropriate)… then again so has Gabby. I say… bring back Sammie and have her with him.

Celia

Haven’t they all, Anna? LOL…. all characters on all soaps play musical beds—-I guess some more than others.

I love this guy, it’s a good move for DOOL.

He should have won Dancing With The Stars. I still remember his Argentine Tango. WOW!

Love Marini and hope this hunk stays a while! Just wish they picked someone like Chloe who is a closer match and with the club, couldn’t she use a handsome attorney!?

THIS WEEK: Billy Flynn and Kate Mansi Exit DAYS As Chabby Says Their “I Do’s” In Heart-tugging Moments

By now, Days of our Lives fans have learned that this week marks the end of the run, for now, of Billy Flynn and Kate Mansi as Chad and Abby.  But before they exit look for wedding bells to ring as Chabby remarries.

When Marci Miller decided to depart the role of Abigail, Kate Mansi returned to the role she played before Miller to finish the arc, which would have potentially left Abby to leave town and Chad to be without her, since Mansi signed on to just complete the storyline,

DAYS head writer Ron Carlivati told Soap Opera Digest  (in latest issue on newsstands now) the thought process of having the duo leave together: “While it was kind of agonizing to make the decision that Chad will exit the canvas with Abigail, I decided that was the best thing for the couple, it was the best thing for the fans and it was the best thing for the show. The way that they exit is very, very open-ended. It’s not like someone is going to die. They leave happy and the door is completely open for them to come back. As much as I’m sure some people will be sad to see them go, I think they’ll be happy to see them go together. It just seemed so unfair to not give them a happy ending. And I just didn’t see how that happy ending would work if Chad stayed in Salem and Abigail left.”   He added: “Obviously, if the time is right, the story is right, and the people are available, they’ll be back.”

Looks like we all need to get out the hankies after checking out the latest NBC promo for Chad and Abby’s wedding and farewell.  You can watch it below.  Then let us know if you are sad to see Billy and Kate exit DAYS, and if you hope they will be back sooner than later via the comment section below.

Drake Hogestyn Chats On John Black’s Latest Predicament With Diana and Leo On ‘Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast’

The complex life of John Black (Drake Hogestyn) just got even more complicated on NBC’s Days of our Lives; thanks to the arrival of his ex-flame Diana Colville (Judith Chapman) and the bombshell that bad boy Leo Stark (Greg Rikaart), who has been causing so much trouble for Will (Chandler Massey) and Sonny (Freddie Smith), is actually his biological son!  Boy, John certainly has had some kids he never knew about pop up (remember, Paul Narita is John’s son, too).  But, is this all a tale spun by Diana, or the truth regarding Leo?

Longtime DAYS vet, Drake Hogestyn sits down with host, Michael Fairman on an all-new installment of NBC’s Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast.  During the conversation, Drake talks about his surprise learning from the script that Diana Cooper was indeed his ex, Diana Colville.

The beloved actor reveals that at one point he thought Genie Francis (Laura, GH) might be coming back to reprise the role, but now that it’s Judith Chapman he is having a great time acting opposite her.  In addition, being a true historian of DAYS, Drake takes the listeners on some fun facts that they may not have remembered. Later, Hogestyn reveals why he and Deidre Hall (Marlena) have found such success as DAYS’ enduring John and Marlena.

Michael commends Drake on his Daytime Emmy Pre-Nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his emotional turn following Marlena being shot at the Jarlena nuptials, and the family saying their goodbyes believing she was going to die, especially she the good doc had a DNR request on her legal forms filed with the hospital.

In the backstage segment of the podcast, Eric Martsolf (Brady) takes Fairman on what a typical production day is like for him and others in Salem: visiting the wardrobe department, stopping to talk to the stage manager, and chatting it up with co-stars along the way including: Lauren Koslow (Kate) and Linsey Godfrey (Sarah).

The new episode of Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast is currently streaming on NBC.com here, and will be available for download via iTunes on Monday.

So, do you think John will do next now that Diana is working her way back into his life, and Leo is his son?  Will he tell Marlena what is going on?  What did you think of the sentiments shared by Drake in the interview? Comment below.

‘Days of our Lives’ Producer Files Lawsuit Against Sony Pictures Television

In a breach of contract and fraud complaint filed this morning, Corday Productions, the Producers of Days of our Lives, is seeking 20 million dollars in damages from its producing partner, Sony Pictures Television, as well as its Columbia Pictures and Screen Gems divisions, and to significantly take back control of the show.

In the 33-page court filed document this morning, Deadline.com noted some of the key points contained within.  Corday Productions is alleging that Sony has treated the show unfairly skewed in favor of its Sony-owned daytime drama series, The Young and the Restless.  The complaint indicates that, “While the domestic ratings for Days of Our Lives have remained largely constant, Sony’s distribution receipts have decreased by over 50%. This dramatic decline is directly attributable to a decision at the highest levels of Sony management to eliminate any competition to its own wholly-owned series The Young and The Restless also distributed by Sony.”

Sony Pictures Television distributes Days of our Lives in overseas territories, and in ancillary markets such as digital streaming.  The DAYS suit alleges that Sony has failed to sell the show in key territories including: Great Britain, France, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Canada, France, Zambia, and South Africa.”

In the lawsuit, the producers also claim that Sony has stiffed them by forcing the production company, Corday Productions, to absorb budgetary deficits . The filing also claims that Sony is “imposing solely on Corday the burden of absorbing the multi-million dollar annual operating deficits due to an inadequate NBC license fee and mandating an inefficient, costly production schedule.”

The complaint filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court, also alleges that Sony has provided Corday with inaccurate accounting and has failed to pay millions of dollars in profits.

So, what do you think about some of the key points that the Days of our Lives producers bring up in their lawsuit against Sony? Comment below.
