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).… Read more »

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
Guest
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.

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…

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

Shay
Guest

@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.

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!

Lindsay Hartley On Temporarily Replacing GH’s Kelly Monaco: “Some Big Shoes To Fill … Precious Too.”

When General Hospital returned to shooting new episodes amid the coronavirus pandemic, Sam McCall looked a bit different temporarily and that’s because the role was played for a bit by soap veteran Lindsay Korman-Hartley (Ex-Passions, All My Children, and Days of our Lives).

Hartley has been subbing for series star, Kelly Monaco (Sam) and according to Daytime Confidential is filling in only for a few weeks in the role,

Lindsay tweeted when the news broke: “Some big shoes to fill…precious too. I hope you enjoy watching Sam as much as I have enjoyed playing her, temporarily.”

In addition on Friday, Monaco’s mom, took to Twitter and informed a fan of Kelly’s the status of her daughter’s health which was good news that she will be back (as it looks as of now) on Monday to tape new episodes of GH,

Carmina Monaco shared:”Kelly is great and should be back on set Monday. 14 day quarantine after a breathing problem with mask 1st day back. 3 negative Covid test, I’d say she is better than great. Thank you for all of the love,”

GH fans are eagerly awaiting new episodes of the long-running ABC daytime drama series to begin airing, and they won’t have to wait much longer as this coming Monday, August 3rd, the story picks back up.

We look forward to Kelly’s return to the series in the role she made soap-famous, while Lindsay takes over to keep the character present in the storylines.

So, what do you think of Lindsay being the temp recast for Kelly? Glad to know Kelly is doing OK? Share your thoughts below.

Ellen DeGeneres Offers Apology As She and Her Talk Show Remain Under Fire

On Thursday, Ellen DeGeneres served up an apology to former and current staff and crew members of her ever-popular daytime talk show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

After many complaints were brought to light by former employees of the show about the culture of the work-place behind the scenes, WarnerMedia is now handling its own internal investigation of the show.  It all began when BuzzFeed’s widely-circulated piece had former employees’ anonymous accusations of racism, intimidation, unjust termination and an overall toxic work culture, perpetuated by the show’s top producers.

In a memo, DeGeneres expressed that now that the issues were brought to her attention, they are taking steps to ensure to correct them moving forward.   While neither she nor Warner Brothers will comment on the fate of specific employees, two sources had revealed to The Hollywood Reporter that executive producer Ed Glavin — one of the show’s three EPs, and the one at the center of many of the more unsavory claims is among those who will be let go

Ellen let everyone associated with the show that she would have delivered this message on-camera on her show, if not for COVID-19, where everyone on the staff and the crew would have been present.   What she wrote is below:

DeGeneres shared:  “Hey everybody – it’s Ellen. On day one of our show, I told everyone in our first meeting that The Ellen DeGeneres Show would be a place of happiness – no one would ever raise their voice, and everyone would be treated with respect. Obviously, something changed, and I am disappointed to learn that this has not been the case. And for that, I am sorry. Anyone who knows me knows it’s the opposite of what I believe and what I hoped for our show.

I could not have the success I’ve had without all of your contributions. My name is on the show and everything we do and I take responsibility for that. Alongside Warner Bros, we immediately began an internal investigation and we are taking steps, together, to correct the issues. As we’ve grown exponentially, I’ve not been able to stay on top of everything and relied on others to do their jobs as they knew I’d want them done. Clearly some didn’t. That will now change and I’m committed to ensuring this does not happen again.”

I’m also learning that people who work with me and for me are speaking on my behalf and misrepresenting who I am and that has to stop. As someone who was judged and nearly lost everything for just being who I am, I truly understand and have deep compassion for those being looked at differently, or treated unfairly, not equal, or — worse — disregarded. To think that any one of you felt that way is awful to me.

It’s been way too long, but we’re finally having conversations about fairness and justice. We all have to be more mindful about the way our words and actions affect others, and I’m glad the issues at our show were brought to my attention. I promise to do my part in continuing to push myself and everyone around me to learn and grow. It’s important to me and to Warner Bros. that everyone who has something to say can speak up and feels safe doing so.

I am so proud of the work we do and the fun and joy we all help put out in the world. I want everyone at home to love our show and I want everyone who makes it to love working on it. Again, I’m so sorry to anyone who didn’t have that experience. If not for COVID, I’d have done this in person, and I can’t wait to be back on our stage and see you all thenStay safe and healthy.  Love,  Ellen”

Meanwhile, Everybody Loves Raymond alum Brad Garrett , who has been a guest on Ellen, claimed on Twitter that DeGeneres bears responsibility for the workplace culture.  He tweeted late Thursday night. “Sorry but it comes from the top ⁦@TheEllenShow. Know more than one who were treated horribly by her.⁩ Common knowledge.”

So, how do view’s Ellen’s message? Do you think the show is about to go under some serious house-cleaning? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
