When Stephen Nichols returns to the fold as Steven “Patch” Johnson for the upcoming 50th anniversary of Days of our Lives, the show will also be bringing in the character of Patch and Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) now teen-aged son, Joey!

Actor James Lastovic has been in the role which is said to be a 2-year contract role!  The young actor was born in San Diego, California.  He made his acting debut in a film called “A Talking Pony!?! in 2013.

When the casting call went out for the role of Joey on DAYS it said, “16-year-old gorgeous Caucasian male who struggles with resentment and abandonment issues.”  Lastovic will debut on DAYS in late summer.

So intrigued to find out the story of Joey?  Comment below!

Im just happy that they are bringing someone in tied to the Bradys and hopefully this means more airtime for the wonderful but underused Mary Beth Evans…his description however sounds like JJ when he returned to Salem…hope its not a recycled storyline!!!

Mary Beth Evans is filming as a contract player and so glad for her.

Not interested in watching that outdated “vision” of Days that obviously includes throwing the most epic storyline (WilSon/PaulSon) under the bus.Higley almost killed Days last time around, and from what I’m hearing, she hasn’t learned a thing. She and Griffith are totally ignoring the kind of mix of characters and storylines that gave Days the best ratings in many years (2013 till beginning of 2014). My watching Days ends the day they sideline Sonny, Paul and Will!!!

And forget about it, Higfith will never introduce a new gay character, they’re destroying the gay storline that was the most successful storyline on the show and got them 4 Emmys in 3 years and ratings highs whenever these characters were front and center (even this year, with overall bad ratings, the best ratings days and weeks happened with Sonny and Paul being front and center). But these people don’t care about what viewers and fans want, otherwise they wouldn’t spend all the money on vets that never brought ratings up in the last couple of years.

For some reason, he reminds me of Tony Dow from Leave It To Beaver in this snap. X

Yes, Yes. He looks so familiar, I couldn’t put my finger on it. He also has the look of Corey Haim.

Hope he is a good actor or we will have to call him Corey Ham…lol

Wow. I was thinking he looked like a young River Phoenix–not seeing Corey Haim or Tony Dow at all.
I also see a dash of a young Leonardo Decaprio.

You’re right. He does look like Tony Dow back in the day. I wonder how many people who read this will have any idea what we’re talking about?

Interesting, since there are no teenagers in Salem, so it means the kids on the show will be teenagers by the summer..Good move..This shows needs diversity..Theo and Hope’s bratty daughter will be aged up.

I don’t think it’s possible for me to be more excited about the reunion of the Johnson family, Joey, Kayla and Patch, by late summer. I only wish it would start to air sooner than that.

It’s also great that Patch’s sister Adrienne has a storyline involving Lucas and Justin who is back full time! I’m hoping Patch and Adrienne’s brother Jack comes back!!! Exciting DAYS ahead!!!!!

Why do soaps write all teens as surly, hostile, nasty mini adults?? I was a teenager and the most important things on our minds were not our parents love lives or troubles. We were concerned about dances and exams and friends and girlfriends and parties. Just as no parent should be THAT wrapped up in their child’s love life…Eve are you listening??…no kids are that wrapped up in their parents’ drama. I hope this Joey is not just a rerun of JJ. Rory is a god example of how real teens act. That kid has a natural charm and charisma… Read more »

I agree, T is a fantastic character, and the actor is so great too, same with Rory, great character & actor. Wish they both had more air-time.

The word out is that Joey is a troubled teen, similar to how JJ was a troubled teen when JJ first returned to Salem from boarding school. I was surprised to hear that the writers went that route with the Joey story so soon after JJ. That seems like overkill on the troubled teen scenario. That sounds like what they did with all those unnecessary cat fights. Not looking forward to the troubled teen Joey story….Been there done that. I hope they can change course quickly on that and come up with something else for Joey. That said, I am… Read more »

I hope DAYS can write good story, as Days has not had a good teen scene since the Shawn/Belle/Philip/Chloe story arc. Those were the DAYS!!! The character of Paige is god-awful, and JJ is so-so.

I’m glad they’re bringing on the next generation of legacy characters. But gee-wiz! must all the teens have a chip on their shoulder when they premiere? That’s not the only kind of teen there is.

Me and my friends have been watching DAYS for WilSon and PaulSon since 2011, and we’re not interested in the crap these “new” head writers are obviously coming up with. They have been ignoring this fanbase since they were hired, not a single mention of Sonny, Paul, Will and this multi-Emmy winning storyline so far! And very obviously, neither has there been a recast for Sonny nor has Christopher (Paul) been seen on set in many weeks, so they’re literally excluding this storyline and fanbase that was a HUGE part of Days’s success (see multi-year ratings highs 2013 till early… Read more »

it looks like “Joey” wears hearing aids. (I am a HIS) just wondering if that was true only because of his speach. He is a cutie.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: What Did You Think of the Life-Sized Duke and Ava Scene?

Okurrrr! On Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the long-running NBC soap opera served up a scene in which Ava (Tamara Braun) wakes up in bed and sees a life-sized Duke doll come to life in the doorway.

If you recall, Ava ripped the small-sized stuffed-animal, Duke to shreds, previously, with a scissor in a fit of rage as she appears to be losing her grip!

Photo: JPI

In this scene, Duke returns with pair of scissors in his hand and says he’s there for payback. Ava screams out. Next, she grabs a nail file to defend herself and tries to run, but Duke grabs her.

What does Ava do next? She bites Duke. He tells her that she’ll pay for that.  Next, we see a startled Ava in bed as Rafe (Galen Gering) appears at the doorway with coffee… and wait for it … a bear claw!

As Rafe informs Ava of the accusations against him at work, she asks if he thinks she is engineering this, considering he accused her of dismembering Duke?  Rafe says he believes she is not responsible for any of this. Oh, Rafe!

So, what did you think of the scene when you watched it between larger-than-life stuffed-animal-come-to-life Duke and Ava?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Three-Time Daytime Emmy Winner, Cady McClain, Reveals She’s ‘Back On Set’ But On Which Show?

After her Instagram post earlier this week, fans of Cady McClain have been attempting to dissect her cryptic tease of a message. McClain, a three-time Daytime Emmy winner, shared the good news with fans that she is ‘back to work’, except she didn’t share which show or project she is working on … just yet!

In her post, McClain teased: “Back on set! Fun to be working again on such a terrific show! Can’t wait to be able to share the news with you all soon! Meantime, hoping you are all taking good care of yourselves. Sending hugs!! ”

Now, it could be Cady is working on a primetime show, not a daytime show, but we shall see.

She has previously appeared on The Young and the Restless and Days of our Lives of the four remaining daytime soaps.  On Y&R she played Kelly Andrews, and on DAYS, Jennifer Horton Deveraux.  And, as viewers of the NBC soap saw this week, Jennifer (in a short appearance by Melissa Reeves) returned to Salem with Jack (Matthew Ashford), only to tie-up loose ends over the holidays and exit the show.

Since DAYS still tapes months ahead, could McClain be returning there, or might she pop up on GH and B&B? The character of Kelly was killed-off of Y&R back in 2015.

Previously, Cady became soap-famous for her roles as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children and Rosanna Cabot on As the World Turns.

Share your thoughts on which show you hope Cady is working on, whether, primetime, daytime, or a streaming series, in the comment section below.
