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 OF OUR LIVES: Marlena Becomes Possessed … Again!

On Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the devil had his way with his favorite person, Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall)! In story, leave it to Marlena to save Doug (Bill Hayes) by giving herself up to Satan!

As Doug revealed himself to be Satan while in a therapy session with Marlena in her office, a shook Marlena tries to comprehend what is happening! When the devil says if Marlena won’t accept him in, she will punish Doug, he does just that.

Poor Doug is left writhing in pain and on the floor, crying out for help! When we come back to the scene Marlena is not exactly right near his body, but sort of overlooking what is happening. Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) rushes into Marlena’s office to find Doug as Marlena stares blankly. Eventually, she calls for help.

After Doug is put in a hospital room and is monitored, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Tripp (Lucas Adams) can’t find anything wrong with him. Meanwhile, Julie finds Marlena at the nurses station and asks what happened with Doug during their therapy session.  Marlena flashes back to what led to Doug writing on the floor, and clearly something is way off with Marlena, because she has now become possessed.

Later, Julie sits by Doug’s hospital bed as he opens his eyes, as he tells his beloved wife, “He left me and went in to her.”  A confused Julie is left to ponder what on earth Doug could be talking about.

When Marlena comes home to John (Drake Hogestyn) – who is already concerned with Johnny (Carson Boatman) being set on making a movie of Sami’s life story which includes points on Marlena’s original possession – she tells him Doug collapsed in her office. When the two hug, Marlena slowly opens her eyes  revealing that they are glowing yellow.  Yup! We are off to the races. Marlena is now once again possessed.

So, what did you think about the scenes between Deidre Hall and Bill Hayes? Are you enjoying the revisiting of the infamous ‘possession’ storyline thus far? Comment below.

Days of our Lives Kicks-Off Possession Storyline Revisted with ‘Doug’ Twist Cliffhanger, Followed by Fall Preview

Did the ‘Devil’ make them do it? Doug Williams  (Bill Hayes) is Satan? In what can only be described as major surprise twist on NBC’s Days of our Lives, for weeks, fans have thought they were about to embark on another dementia or Alzheimer’s storyline on the soaps with another beloved character.

However, Days head writer, Ron Carlivati ,and his writing team came up with a way to make it seem like this may be Doug’s fate only to use the long-running character as the impetus to bring the classic possession storyline back on the air some 25 years later.

It all goes down after Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) calls Marlena (Deidre Hall) to ask him to see Doug, after his MRI and other tests proved inconclusive for dementia, etc, to see if Dr. Evans can assess him.  The phone call to Marlena happened after John (Drake Hogestyn) was discussing the past, since Johnny (Carson Boatman) is ramping up to a shoot a movie on Sami’s life, that will include the time that Sami walked in on John and Marlena having sex, which caused Sami to act out for years and years.

 

However, and this is key, John tells Marlena that moment in time also left her alone and vulnerable to the darkest time in her life – alluding to when she became possessed by the devil – and Marlena was clearly having difficulty admitting that or going down that road of remembrance, when the phone call from Kayla saved her from digging deeper into the past.  Well now, John and Marlena may never have that conversation as she is primed to once again become possessed.

Meanwhile, Johnny is reading Will’s script for the Sami movie, and is shocked to read in it that Marlena was once possessed by the devil, as John takes out a dusty box with his Father John collar, a bible, and a news clipping of Marlena being possessed.  John is feeling that this movie will bring bad things on to all those he loves, especially Doc, and he looks to be right!

Now at her office with Doug, he admits he knows something is wrong.  He acts out and does strange things and does not know why.  Marlena brings up why Doug locked Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) in a freezer by accident. Doug gets adamant saying: “That was no accident. I locked that bitch in there on purpose.”  Marlena is shocked at his word and tone.  Then as Doug laughs, he says, “I’m not Doug.”  Next thing you know, the lowered voice of Satan comes out of Doug’s mouth and he tells Doc, “It’s been over 25 years Marlena. But did you really think I wouldn’t come back for you?” End of episode.  Great cliffhanger!

Now, check out the fall preview released following the airing of Friday’s episode by NBC below, which teases more demonic moments on Days. Then let us know in the comment section, what you thought of the ‘Doug’ twist as the possession storyline begins?

Plus, make sure to cast your vote in ‘Michael’s Poll’ of the week on the revisiting of this classic tale now in 2021 below the preview.
