The soap world was all abuzz this morning, when Soap Opera Digest released an item stating that Days of our Lives, Emmy nominated actor, James Scott (EJ Dimera) would be leaving Salem when his contract expires, and that the show and James were unable to come to terms.  However, not so fast!

On-Air On-Soaps got this official statement on the Scott contract talks, “A DAYS spokesperson said that contract talks between James and the show are still on-going!”

Whew! That is good news for the legions and legions of James Scott fans and a relief to the series who has just rebooted the show with a big promotional blitz.  We will keep you updated on the situation as news warrants.

Did the show win an Emmy with that combination of actors lately?? Heck no!! James Scott is my favorite and he makes the show in my opinion!!

Oh boy, will they be in trouble if they let James Scott go!! The re-boot is as sodden and leaden as anything I’ve seen on TV in a while, except for the energy emanating from James and Lauren Koslow.
What in the world are TPTB thinking? If James goes, I go. It will mean another found hour in my day.

If James Scott leave Days…I go too. He makes watching the show a joy. The best actor on the show. He is the reason I watch the show and his fan base is so large, Days will lose a lot of fans and it doesn’t matter who they bring back…

The DAYS reboot surely will finds its way. I am giving DAYS a shot because of all the promises to focus on solid storytelling and truth to characters and histories. I will need some time to get acquainted. I like James Scott and hope he remains on the canvas.

James is the reason I watch Days again. I can’t believe they’d let someone this popular go. Days hasn’t even gotten their reboot up and running yet. Why would they ditch this guy? Are they crazy, or don’t they know how to do business?

James Scott as EJ Dimera is what has kept me watching Days for as long as I have. If he leaves I will no longer watch. And I have been talking to lots of people who feel the same way. Days please dont let him leave!

James Scott is the best thing about Days of Our Lives, His acting reaches a depth not associated with this type of show. If he were to leave, many would stop watching the show.

If Y&R wanted James they would already have him

Hope he stays. I’m sorry but he’s the only Days actor getting Emmy nominations these days. I like EJ, he shouldn’t be all bad nor all good. Should be a villian we love to hate. Running for mayor should be interesting.

I hope he gets the contract worked out, I love James Scott as EJ. With JKJ (Philip) gone I doubt I would continue watching Days if James left too.

I don’t see any good news until James has signed a new contract with Days. He is a huge asset to the show and beloved by many viewers. I hope Days sees the error of their ways and re-signs this very talented actor immediately.

James Scott is the best and for me makes the show. I think they should show more of him rather than consider not renewing his contract. I wont watch DOOL any more if the take him off the show!!!

DAYS Alison Sweeney Previews the New EJami

Coming up on Days of our Lives, Dan Feurerriegel take over the role of EJ DiMera on-screen, and the character is making quite the timely, or untimely return to Salem now that Sami (Alison Sweeney) has been hitting the sheets with her ex-husband, Lucas (Bryan Dattilo).

Feurerriegel is stepping into the coveted role of EJ made soap-famous by James Scott, who left the series back in 2014 and never returned.

Now the question is can Sweeney and Feurerriegel strike soap gold with their re-imagined duo known as “EJami”?

 

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Alison Sweeney opened up about the casting, working with Dan, and the future of EJami sharing: “To be honest, I was nervous when I heard they were recasting EJ.  That’s a big role to fill, I mean, James Scott was definitely a fan favorite and EJ is such a memorable role in the story and certainly in Sami’s life.”

Sweeney said of sharing scenes with Feurerriegel, “Dan has been fantastic. I’ve really enjoyed working with him. He clearly understood the importance of the task ahead.”

As for what fans of EJami may be in for, Sweeney noted:  ” I hope those ‘EJami’ fans see the couple they were so connected to, but of course, in a new, different way.”

So will you be giving the new EJami a chance? Looking forward to Dan’s debut, or are you Team Lumi all the way? Share your thoughts via the comment section below. But first check out this week’s promo for DAYS.
