Is Bryan Dattilo The Next Cast Member To Exit DAYS?

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

Within the last hour on Wednesday, fans and reporters took notice, and read a tweet that was posted by longtime Days of our Lives’ cast member, and enduring favorite, Bryan Dattilo (Lucas).

In his somewhat cryptic tweet, Bryan shared the following: “25 years. 2 months. 12 days. And 4 hours. Good run. Thanks to my Days family and fans. Enjoy Lucas while you can.”

Just back in April of this year, Dattilo celebrated his 25th anniversary with the series.

Does this tweet from Bryan mean he is gone from Salem? What would the show have mind that would take Lucas off the canvas if this turns out to be confirmed?

Various reports have surfaced that Dattilo’s exit may just mean that his character is being given a rest for now, but as we know in Salem life no one is really “dead” for good … are they?

Big rumor Matthew Ashford is returning to Days as Jack. He is alive. Lucas will leave with Chloe, that’s my prediction.

More implausible resurrections?!?!?! A staple of the current writing team as evidence where they have been previously. Weak trope on which to lean. I prefer moving forward with story not revising the history. Very sorry to see Mr. Dattilo go.

Im tired of characters being killed off and suddenly brought back from the dead..no wonder Hollywood and many people do not take soaps seriously…i watch the UK soap Coronation Street…characters stay dead and they allow children to grow up naturally and dont age them over night!!!

Really??? That would be great! Jennifer only works best with Jack, and Eric needs someone he can be shirtless with and have sex scenes with! That man is too hot to be with someone like that.

Do you think that terrible unkempt, grizzly beard is also hot? Seriously, from where I sit, I wouldn’t want that anywhere near me. To each his or her own, I guess.

If true, Ashford better not gain 5 lbs. as the writer will probably insert weight jokes and kill the character off permanently a year later.

God i hope that Matthew Ashford isnt returning. He is never utlized outside of Jennifer then they ultimatelt reunite, THEN WHAT? zzzzzzzzzzz he has no sizzle with anyone and this would be a waste. With Lucas, Will is still on the canvas and you have Sami and Nicole coming back. Keep bryan dattilo!

Hire Bryan on Y&R, as Chance Nina’s son.

Good idea, although I liked the previous Chance, but he could also be Phillip Jr.who might turn out to be Jack’s half brother.

Jack and Jennifer are SO BORING! I would rather them resurrect Peter Blake DiMera! Rehire Jason Brooks or recast with Michael Muhuney! I would watch Peter and Jennifer! Or rather yet, bring Jack back and do Jack/Peter/Jennifer again!

He can run off with Chloe. Isn’t she being written out? I want to see a very happy ending for Lucas. He deserves that much.

I always hate to see an actor lose their job. Unfortunately, it seems to be the bad part of the business. With all of the recent announcements that Belle, Shawn, Sami, Nicole and others are coming back, the cast is too big to give everyone screen time. I thought Bryan did an amazing job when he thought Will died and with the alcoholic storyline, but since then, he has been nothing more than background story. I could name a few others I would like to see go if the show is not going to write for them (i.e. Adrienne, Roman). I would like to see Theo and Stephanie come back. Theo would add a lot to the Tripp/Claire/Ciara storyline and Stephanie would be a great fit with Abigail/Gabi.

He is making it sound so final—perhaps they are going to kill off the character– I hope not

It doesn’t surprise me. I like Lucas and enjoy Bryan’s performance. He broke my heart while grieving for Will and his relationship with Adrienne was so tender and sweet. In the time I’ve watched the show, I feel he’s been under utilized. He’s rarely on. That must be frustrating for him because TPTB are wasting a very strong actor.

In my opinion, the same can be said about Judi Evans. I think she is excellent; yet, you never see her.

A giant thank you to Bryan for the great work. I wish him the very best in his future.

I have only watched the show since 2013, since we lost OLTL and AMC, I just wanted a soap fix – I find the character of Lucas to be just a tad boring and to be honest some of the storylines are a tad draggy but then that’s a soap I guess.

Llanviewer717
Llanviewer717

I know what you mean Frank. I only starting watching in 2014. You don’t see so many characters for long periods of time. They have no storyline of their own and don’t interact with the other stories. I often forget about them. Lucas and Adrienne are prime examples. I think that’s just the way this show is produced.

Frank Mills

Maybe I am getting old and the standard soap formulas wear thin but it does seem to me that ABC’s OLTL and All My Children were more compelling and that is not to suggest I dislike DOOL but it gets a little monotonous ~ and even I have kind of given up hope that the Agnes Nixon shows will see new life at this point but I admire those fans that say “never say never”….

The ReRon regime… slowly purging the cast of long time vets to make room for his newbies.

Yeah… a Devil’s seen this movie before. And GH still hasn’t recovered from it.

Shay

GH just keeps doubling down on all his mistakes and lame characters….makes for a pitifully mundane mix along with Valentini’s out-of-control penchant for bringing an endless parade of soap opera refugees into Port Charles….Hmmm…could Dattilo be next? He does have that requisite cookie-cutter “look” that snags actors roles time and time again over there. Perhaps he should take a lap or two around the GH parking lot….who knows? He just might grab a casting call! It has happened in the past, after all…

Satan

Dante recast, maybe? I could actually see Bryan as Sonny & Olivia’s kid.

Shay
Shay

@Satan……I was actually going to suggest that based upon Dattilo’s physical attributes, since he does bear some basic similarities to Zamprogna, but not being familiar with his DOOL character, I didn’t know if personality-wise this particular actor would be a good fit.

Their kid? Bryan’ 46 and Lisa (Olivia) is 48.

@DAYS – PLEASE @the bare minimum… give this guy recurring and/or first class guest status. Bryan Dattilo.. along with Ali Sweeney with his 25 year gold star .. carries

the cast PLUS production… ALL the actors he has ever worked… love his energy… HIS SENSE OF HUMOR.. his acting choice is on top

Lucas, My Man

his work at the start of your tenure… he roped us all in… he corralled his energies and gave a stand out ; outstanding ; performance. always has… WORKED HIS BEST STUFF

Lucas’ romance with Chloe is pretty lackluster so if those two were to leave town together it wouldn’t be the worst thing to happen in Salem.

What the hell? It wasn’t that long ago we were seeing Lucas just about every day. I thought it was great that Bryan was working more than he ever did in the past. This has to be some kind of gag or something. Lucas is still a very good character to have on the show.

It is good to see him every so often, but never really got vested with him. I am ready for Matt to come back. Go Ron!! Keep up the good work!!!

P.S. I am learning to like the new web site….

I hope he’s not leaving. I don’t want Chloe to leave either.

Bryan Dattilo is a very capable actor when given the right material as shown during the Will resurrection story. Unfortunately, most of the writing regimes never know what to do with Lucas. I always feel bad when they dump BD time and again. Fortunately, BD has shown in the past that when not on Days he is not too proud to work at anything, including manual labor to provide for his family.

Hope they can find a way to keep him around. Involve him more with Kate, a character who is always in the thick of things.

It wouldnt surprise me since he really doesnt have much of a story right now,Hey what ever happened to Vivian the last time we saw her she was tied to a bed and said you? I have a good idea who you is but why are they not showing it?It has been over two weeks now since we seen her.

ChandlerFan

Vivian had so much alcohol in her bloodstream that it’s taking Dr. Rolf’s magic serum two weeks to kick in!

I like Bryan, but Lucas never caught on with me this time around. Lucas IS a HORTON, so they better not kill him off. I’d like it if he went off with Chloe or ended up back with Sami (and we know that will end at some point off screen). Best wishes, Bryan!

Jussie Smollett Scenes Cut From ‘Empire’ In Light Of Attack Investigation

As of Tuesday, the production of Fox’s hit series, Empire has slashed Jussie Smollett’s upcoming scenes following reports that the suspicion is now on him for allegedly staging the “hate” attack he reported to the Chicago PD back on January 29th.

According to production sources viaTMZ: Jussie was supposed to have nine scenes and a big musical performance in the second-to-last episode of Season 5,  Now, five scenes and the musical number have been axed.  Smollett’s character is also no longer the focus of his remaining four scenes, which will now feature an ensemble of characters.

The actor/singer who portrays Jamal Lyon will be working Friday and possibly Thursday but won’t be rehearsing.

The Empire writers are said to have been scrambling over the last 24 hours to revise this season’s scripts.

All of this despite despite strongly expressed renewed support by Empire showrunner Brett Mahoney on February 17th.  The goal now is said to be to reduce Smollett’s role both in dramatic stints and musical performances.

Empire returns for the remainder of its fifth season on March 13.

Smollett claims he was the victim of a racist and homophobic attack near his Chicago apartment, but things took a turn when he may have paid two friends to help stage the assault.

This case is said to be going before a Grand Jury as early as today.

What are your thoughts on the latest developments in the Smollett case and Empire reducing his appearances for the remainder of the season? Comment below.

TODAY: Y&R’s Melody Thomas Scott Visits ‘The Talk’ As Her 40th Anniversary Week As Nikki Newman Kicks-Off

On today’s broadcast of the CBS afternoon series, The Talk, the ladies welcome Y&R icon, Melody Thomas Scott, who this week celebrates her incredible 40th anniversary with the show as Nikki Newman.

During her segment, Melody chats on Wednesday’s upcoming standalone episode where Nikki is in jail reflecting on her life.  Wednesday is also the exact date of Thomas Scott’s 40th anniversary with the CBS Daytime drama series.

During the segment Melody fills the ladies in on the “All About Nikki” episode, as she relates:  “I was so thrilled that they did this. It’s truly, really the life of Nikki in the entirety of the episode. It’s all about Nikki. And she’s in jail. She’s writing a letter to her grandchildren so that she can explain who she really is, how she got to where she is.  I have to narrate it, I’ve got a voice-over, a long voice-over. And then, as I’m thinking about all these different times in my life, I can’t believe I’m referring to me as her, her life, then we see the flashbacks. And for the longtime viewers, even current viewers, it is such a trip down memory lane. I mean, you are on that train and you’re not getting off…all of the clips have not been seen since they were first aired.”

In addition, Melody addresses the passing of her longtime co-star and friend, Kristoff St. John relating:  “I adored him. We all adored him. There was something very unique and magical about him. He would just draw you into his wonderful world. And all of his bear hugs, I can’t believe I’ll never get a bear hug. Going to any kind of event, any party, the first thing I said when I got there was ‘Where’s Kristoff?’ I want to find Kristoff, I want to be with him, I want to be in his air space. Because that’s the kind of guy he was, and I think that came through on camera. I think everybody sensed that, I mean everybody adored him.”

So, will you be checking out Melody on today’s episode of The Talk (2PMEST and 1PM PST) today? Comment below.
