Greg Vaughan Going To DAYS as Eric Brady, Or Is It Another Role?

So just who is soap heartthrob Greg Vaughan going to play when he makes his debut on Days of our Lives come this fall?  The former star of General Hospital, where he played Lucky Spencer, has been reported to be the recast for the role of Eric Brady!  Eric is Sami Brady’s (Alison Sweeney’s) twin brother, and the last we all knew of the the character, Eric had moved to Colorado after a near-fatal accident.

However, there are now conflicting reports, and one out from ABC Soaps In Depth, which could be a big red herring, that Vaughan may not be playing Eric after all, but a completely different role.   One thing we do know …  and also according to SID, “When Vaughan debuts on the canvas, he will be playing a ‘holy man’.”    Is that Eric in a different “profession”?

Meanwhile, Vaughan and Sweeney are both currently filming a movie for Hallmark called Two In, perhaps it’s a dry run for working together at DAYS!

So are you excited to see Vaughan back on daytime?  Would you like him to play Eric? Or, someone else?  Let us know your thoughts.

I agree with you that it is better that Greg is on DOOL. It was a crappy thing for GH to dropped him just to have the original actor returned to the show. I though it was a slap in their face that Jonathan Jackson left the series again. Just starting back watching DOOL and Greg is fantastic on the show.

I hope he is playing Eric. I’d like to see all of Marlena’s kids back in town. Belle needs to come back too!

I don’t care what character he plays…I’m just glad he’s back on soaps.

I just started watching Days a few months ago, so don’t know much history, but it seems like he’d be good as Sami’s brother.

I don’t want him as a holy man. I want him as someone who frequently has his shirt off!

Love him. I never saw him on GH but we went to the same highschool. Class act, that one. No matter who he plays…it will be great. Days has the best actors and cutest guys on their show. Makes sense.

I could see him playing Eric but I would be interested in seeing him come into a role like Shane Donovon’s son Andrew. “Andrew” and “Jeanie” are Brandy/Donovon character’s that we’ve never seen as adults. Would be a great opportunity for Charles and Patsy to come back and make appearances on the show. Wouldn’t be overly surprised if he stepped into the role of Phillip either. Lots of possibilities that could be fun to see unfold but fear that like other ex GHers, (Natalia, Tamaura, Sara Joy Brown) he will be kicked to the curb before we even have time… Read more »

What a Nice… Idea. Especially… for Shane and Kimberly…. Charles and Patsy. With Bo leaving… We need Bradys pronto. i honestly… think.. that Shane… would be a good trio… for Billie… and Hope. Love interests. I love Kimberly… don’t get me wrong… but, Shane, has been back… and i thought… this was someone real, for Billie. I thought Shane and Billie, had instant chemistry… and, it’s hard to picture.. someone else not with Hope, but Bo. So, hence, someone familiar. This trio could be way interesting… Heck… Shane and Kristen? Shane PI’ing… sleuthing… the DiMera’s. I simply adore, Kayla… and… Read more »

Would have liked for him to come back to general hospital and be lucky again, don’t think they did right by getting rid of him, now gh still has no lucky. I watch Days to so it will be interesting to see him play a whole new Character.

He would be great as Eric and it would be nice to see him on soaps. However Jensen Ackles will always be my favourite. I do like Greg though.

I’ve been saying this for a long time, GV would fit SO well on the DAYS set. Alison, Ari, Galen (who Greg is already friends with), Eric, Shawn and crew would match so well personality wise with GV. He would click right away with them. A while back it was reported that he was offered to test for the role of Quinn but turned it down. Such a good move on his part! An established one with roots, one as important as Sami’s twin brother, is an absolutely better choice of character for him to play. IMO, Greg could become… Read more »

Glad Eric is back, but I don’t want him to wind up with Nicole. It is quite clear that Dicole is short term because she is attracted to Rafe as well, and the rumors of Dannifer or Daniel and Billie. Plus, I want to see and EJole reunion. Anyway, I think Taylor should come back for Eric. Wonder what his storyline will be. Maybe creating peace between Sami and the rest of the family? And who will be playing that new character named Drew?

Good for Greg Vaughn! I really did not like how he was treated by ABC Daytime so I’m glad to see him moving on with his career and doing well.

I love GV and I hope that he is Eric Brady and I really hope that the idiots over at Days let the fans know about this soon instead of all of these rumors. They are not doing any favors for themselves by not capitolizing on this casting coupe (and Eileen Davidson’s too).

I very glad that greg vaughan sign with days of our lives, but I think little bit to old to play eric brady but he does end playing that character it will just fine. I think they should recast him austin reed (plus I am pat muldoon fan) but pat. Is better off if days writer are gonna write his character like that. I hope greg rocks days!

DAYS Brandon Barash On Stefan’s Resurrection: “You’ll See Some Revenge, Corporate Takeovers, Losing a Memory … Maybe Gaining of Memories”

Dr. Rolf is at it again on Days of our Lives! While Jake DiMera has met his maker, apparently his twin brother, Stefan O DiMera is coming back to life.  That sets the stage for Brandon Barash to reprise his original DAYS role.

In a brand new interview with his on-screen brother, Dan Feuerriegel (EJ) on the Days of our Lives You Tube Channel, Barash talks on what viewers can expect once Stefan is completely back in action, and how he feels about taking on the darker twin once again.

Brandon teased: “You’ll see some revenge, corporate takeovers, losing a memory … maybe gaining of memories.”  With Stefan back in the DiMera mix, look for the two brothers to not always see eye-to-eye. Barashs shared that they’ll be, “Butting heads for sure”.

Meanwhile, will Stefan and his true love, Gabi (Camila Banus) reunite once she knows he is alive? Barash weighs-in on that and more ‘burning’ questions.

You can check out the chat below.

Now, let us know, are you glad that Stefan O DiMera is back on the Salem canvas? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

BREAKING NEWS: Days of our Lives Ending Its Run on NBC, Moving to Peacock Starting in September

In a major move, Days of our Lives, the longest-running scripted series of all-time on NBC, is exiting the television network and will now be in its new home on the NBCUniversal streaming platform, Peacock.

The shift marks the end of DAYS’ nearly 57 year-run on broadcast television. Days of our Lives debuted on NBC back on November 8th, 1965.

Look for all-new episodes daily of the series to begin on Peacock starting on September 12th, along with the show’s library already available to stream for Peacock Premium subscribers.  According to a press release from Peacock, “The historic move to Peacock creates the ultimate destination for daytime fans to access the library, new episodes and Peacock Original Days of Our Lives: Beyond Salem in one place.”

In its place, NBC will fill the daytime drama’s current timeslot with NBC News Now, an hour-long news show anchored by Kate Snow, Aaron Gilchrist, Vicky Nguyen and Morgan Radford. According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC affiliates will also have the option to add local news to the hour.

In a statement, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming chairman Mark Lazarus shares: “This programming shift benefits both Peacock and NBC and is reflective of our broader strategy to utilize our portfolio to maximize reach and strengthen engagement. With a large percentage of the Days of Our Lives audience already watching digitally, this move enables us to build the show’s loyal fanbase on streaming while simultaneously bolstering the network daytime offering with an urgent, live programming opportunity for partners and consumers.”

NBC’s decision means it leaves only three daytime soaps on American broadcast TV: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful. 

DAYS has found recent streaming success with its limited-series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem Chapters 1 and 2, which introduced the viewing audience to the Peacock platform.

To watch Days of our Lives on Peacock, you will need a premium-tier paid subscription at $4.99 per month. The service offers an an ad-free experience at $9.99 per month.

We will have more on this developing story.

So, what do you think of NBC removing DAYS from its daytime line-up, while moving it to their owned-streaming platform, Peacock? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Brandan Barash Shares Reaction to Jake’s Death on Days of our Lives: “It Was Fun Getting To Know You”

This week on Days of our Lives, Jake (Brandon Barash) met his untimely demise, when he was shot by a mugger.  Thus, signaling what would seem to be the end of the line for the character.

However, on today’s episode of the NBC soap opera, Jake visited a grieving Ava (Tamara Braun), so perhaps there is more than a ‘ghost of a chance’ that Barash is sticking around.

As previewed exclusively last month during our virtual interview with DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati …the Salem scribe revealed there would be another death in Salem, following the murder of Abigail Deveraux DiMera (Marci Miller), and the character would be ‘dead-dead’.

However, speculation is running wild that with the return of Dr. Rolf, that perhaps Jake will be resurrected … or Barash will once again play Jake’s twin, Stefan O. DiMera!

On Instagram, Barash had some fun with Jake’s demise with comparison side-by-side photos – one of which features Barash as Jake covered in blood, and reading the Handbook for the Recently Deceased!

Barash captioned his pic: “How it started/how it’s going. #ripjake It was fun getting to know you. 🙏🥃”

So, what do you think about DAYS killing Jake? Do you think Brandon will be sticking around Salem? If so, as who? Comment below.
