Fantastic news this afternoon out of Salem! Soap Opera Digest is reporting that James Scott (EJ Dimera) has reached a deal with the powers-that-be at Days of our Lives and has signed a new deal to stay with the show for another year till April 2013!

This should come as great news to James’s fans who were concerned that the popular actor might decide to bolt, when for many, he is one of the main reasons they tune-in to DAYS. We are glad to hear that Salem will have mayoral candidate, EJ Dimera and James along for some time to come!

So true sara! “Pretty boys” in soaps are a dime a dozen but with James Scott we get the breath-takingly handsome looks and exceptional talent! That my friends would qualify JAMES SCOTT as THE TOTAL PACKAGE!

I don’t like EJ. At all. But his leaving would have derailed the new writers’ plans. I think James will leave for good in April 2013, and he should—EJ is a terrible character and has overstayed his welcome. It sickens me that THIS is what happened to Susan Banks’ son. 🙁

Fantastic news!!! James Scott is the reason I started watching Days again in 2007 after a 10 year break from the show!!! James has taken material written for EJ that would have desroyed the character had he been portrayed by a lesser actor. James is special and I hope tptb at DOOL, NBC and Sony realize just how much and make sure EJ gets a well written and compelling story. TEAM EJAMES!!!!!! 🙂

He is the reason I tune in. James’ performances made these past two years worth watching. He is a talented actor, a handsome man, and a true gentleman. I’m so glad Days realized his value. They didn’t need to lose one of their most popular actors when they are struggling to address the shambles the last creative team left the show in.

I am so happy to hear this news. I just hope the contract is a good one for James. The new writers will now get a chance to show how EJ could be written well. That would be a pleasant change.

This is great news! James Scott is an outstanding actor and an important asset at Days. He has been one of the few consistently excellent performers through some of the worst writing and nonsensical storylines I’ve ever seen on this show. Also, he has turned a character who was probably intended to be a one-dimensional villain into a multi-dimensional character of great depth who evokes a range of emotions in the viewer and always engages us in EJ’s story. It is clear that James never rests on his laurels and that, as the consumate professional that he is, works very… Read more »

It’s too bad. I was so hoping he would finally be let go. Since this show started revolving around EJ it has been awful, and driven hundreds of thousands of viewers away. If he must stay, I hope he will be seriously backburner-ed and used minimally. I stopped watching the show when I could no longer stand him being on EVERY SINGLE DAY. I was hoping to come back to the show for the re-set, but if the new writers continue to overuse this overrated actor and TERRIBLE character, I won’t be able to come back completely, even for my… Read more »

The show was bad for reasons other than James Scott. Sara Bibel credited him with saving the show. And his two nominations for Best Actor contradict your assessment of his acting ability. I doubt the show will miss your lack of viewership.

Fantastic news! Hoping the new writers can bring this character back to what it should be so that a wonderful EJ and Sami romance can be written.

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.

DAYS Billy Flynn Opens Up To Maurice Benard About His Battle with Addiction on All-New ‘State of Mind’

In a terrific episode of Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) State of Mind You Tube series, the actor welcomes another one of the best actors on daytime, Days of our Lives star Billy Flynn (Chad DiMera, Days of our Lives).

What made this so compelling was Billy Flynn’s ability to talk openly, frankly, and with great understanding about his battles with addiction which he notes have been alcohol, drugs, and the cycles he has found himself in within his life and how he was able to break free of them, and the work he continues to do to keep him from falling back into them.

Flynn shares how much of his adult life was greatly impacted by his childhood, and explained to Benard, how he acted out when he was younger. He also shares how his addiction caused issues for awhile with his job at Days of our Lives.

This episode is a powerful one to watch for anyone struggling with issues of addiction, dependency, suicide, having problems at work, and trying to not self-destruct, which so many of us do, once we seemingly get what we what or while we are trying to obtain it.

Bravo to Billy and Maurice for bringing this forward and to the audience.

Watch Billy’a visit on State of Mind below, followed by a bonus segment where Flynn asks Benard some ‘hard-hitting’ questions.

What did you think of what Billy shared with Maurice? Comment below.
