Jason Cook Returns To Days of our Lives!

Shawn-D comes back in his original form with the return of Jason Cook to Days of our Lives! 

According to Soap Opera Digest: Cook, who was so popular in the role of Hope (Kristian Alfonso) and Bo’s (Peter Reckell) son Shawn-Douglas Brady, is already taping scenes at the NBC soap opera for events surrounding the series upcoming 50th anniversary in November.

Jason Cook played the eldest child of Bo and Hope from 1999-2006 before leaving the series to work on other projects and other aspects of his career.  His successor was Brandon Beemer.

While storyline is also tight-lipped at DAYS on just how Shawn-Douglas returns to the Salem fold, we can suspect it will also have to do with the re-emergence of his on-screen father Bo, who is also back taping episodes of the long-running daytime drama series.

Are you happy to hear the news that Jason Cook is returning to DAYS for the series 50th anniversary? Let us know!

Jimh,

I commented 18 minutes after you, but your post was not seen until after I commented.

I’m pointing that out, so as not to look uncaring. A thousand returns aren’t as important as your health…GET WELL SOON!!!!!

Jim hope you are feeling better. Agree the returns are great. Hope it doesn’t mean the end of the show. Shawn D loved him, and loved him as Matt on GH. I have to agree on one thing. when you are ill, taking your mind off of it seems to help you for a moment.Get well soon.

Absolutely fantastic news!

It may not be long term, but it’ll be nice nonetheless. We should also have Martha Madison back as Belle! Their daughter, Claire, is coming back too!

JKJ as a returning Philip Kiriakis would be gold!!!

DAYS is delivering!!!!!

Yes! The return of Jason Cook as Shawn-D is awesome news, he’s obviously the original teen Shawn-D from back in the day, and it’s so great he’ll be back for the Bo return and the 50th. Now, I too, would like to hope that Martha Madison returns, too. Of course, I would prefer Kristen Storms, but it’s probably very doubtful she will be released from ABC to pop over to NBC. It would be nice though. But, Martha would be fine, too to return as Belle. Thanks to Days, for making the Jason Cook return happen, and thanks to Jason,… Read more »

I hope the return of these Brady men give some movement to the Bo-Hope saga which seems to have stalled at Reckell’s exit. I have read a lot about Salem to catch up. This news seems very exciting for DAYS fans.

I hope that the return is recurring, if not regular. And that Martha returns as Belle; I missed both of them. v was OK as Shawn-Douglas, but Jason Cook had better chemistry in the role.

This is awesome news! Jason is a really good actor, I loved him on both DAYS and GH. He was great as Shawn-D, better than Brandon Beemer IMO. Hopefully Martha Madison can return next. Can’t wait!

The new writing regime is really going all out and I commend them for it! I love Shawn and its great to see him back with the Bradys. I hope they will announce that Phillip is also returning. Too bad we have to wait till the fall to see all the vets return.

Man Days is going all out for the anniversary! Days is going to be kick ass starting late summer. I’d love to see him return for good, same with Bo and Patch.

There is a rumor that Michael T. Weiss might return, I hope so because that would be great also.

I’d love to see Carrie and Mike return for the anniversary also.

Michael T. Weiss’ Mike was paired with Derya Ruggles’ Robin and Lisa Howard’s April.

Roark Critchlow’s Mike was paired with Christie Clark’s Carrie.

Either one would be good, but Michael T. Weiss would create more buzz.

Days tapes so far in advance, that is almost maddening to hear about all these returns, knowing I have to wait 5 months to actually see it all unfold on screen. Kudos to them for keeping the spoilers to a minimum.

This is excellent news. I have said for months this was needed to keep Hope front and center. It seems like Daniel and Hope have lost a lot of steam lately. I have another idea. Can DOOL bring Jessica Collins on as the new Belle? I still want Nadia, Farah and Jay Kenneth back full time.

Scott

Jessica is too old for belle

BreckRoy

Probably a no on Collins. She’s 44, which would suddenly make “baby sister” Belle now OLDER than Carrie (42), Sami and Eric (36-38), and practically twins with her brother, Brady (early to mid 40s). Belle should be around 30-34 at most (based on her last portrayer) and always younger than every sibling but Paul Narita,the baby in that family.

Get Belle back. It makes NO sense to have Shawn D and Claire back without Belle too. John and Marlena need a visit from their daughter also. It will be interesting to see who else is coming back but they need to do well in the ratings that’s for sure-I think NBC will make their decisions on how this all turns out.

Happy Jason is returning and not his recast, Brandon-also, I hope he leaves his Tom Cruise impression-esque personality behind-he brought this to work everyday while on General Hospital as Drake, Jr-I can’t even remember the character he played..

If Martha Madison cant return they should hire Kristina Sisco to play Belle. She’s about the Right age. She played Charity on Passions.

DAYS Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes Pay Tribute to Robert Clary

Days of our Lives beloved Daytime Emmy Lifetime Achievement Award recipients, Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes (Doug and Julie Williams), paid tribute to their longtime co-star and dear friend, Robert Clary (Ex-Robert LeClair, DAYS).

On Wednesday, Clary passed away at the age of 96.  On Days of our Lives, Bill Hayes and Robert Clary performed many times together as Doug and Robert when the soap opera had “Doug’s Place” as a nightclub venue for the characters to meet up and have story, while also taking in some music.

 

Bill and Susan shared their thoughts on Clary’s passing on their Instagram on Thursday; accompanied by some clips of performances by the characters of Doug and Robert.

The Hayes’ expressed: “Our Dear Robert Clary… Like a diamond, Robert was tough enough to survive this world and emerge brilliantly. He was so full of life… so saucy, so sassy, so superb at everything he tried. The energy and optimism that filled his 96 years was amazing to behold.  When he performed with pathos or joy, he always touched our hearts. He was an adoring husband, a firm friend, a trustworthy team player and, in crisis, deeply caring. In childhood, he had experienced humanity’s darkest days- then, as a man, filled the world with light.  His story in two words to remember: choose life. #RobertClary”

Robert Clary, DAYS, Y&R and ‘Hogan’s Heroes’ Favorite, Passes Away at 96

Very sad news to report.  Robert Clary, who became a soap opera fan favorite for his roles as Robert LeClair on Days of our Lives, and Pierre Roulland on The Young and the Restless has died at the age of 96.

Clary, best known to primetime fans for his role as  Cpl. Louis LeBeau, on the comedy series, Hogan Heroes, passed away on Wednesday according to his granddaughter, Kim Wright, who informed the Hollywood Reporter.  Robert was the last surviving member of the iconic cast.

Throughout his daytime career, Clary always sang in his roles and is most remembered as Doug Williams (Bill Hayes) best friend, Robert LeClair.  The two would always perform at “Doug’s Place” in story.  Clary played the role from 1972–1973, 1975–1983, and again from 1986–1987.

During a break from DAYS, Robert went over to Y&R and created the role of Pierre Roulland when the CBS daytime drama first premiered from 1973-1974, and once again sang and acted on the show.  Later in his career, Clary appeared on The Bold and the Beautiful in the role of Pierre Jourdan from 1990-1992.

On Clary’s passing, Y&R shared: “The #YR Family sends our condolences to the family and loved ones of Robert Clary known to the Y&R audiences as “Pierre” on our debut episode!” 

B&B also honored Robert by posting: The Bell Family & @BandB_CBS re sad to learn of the passing of #RobertClary, who portrayed Pierre Jourdan on @BandB_CBS from 1990-1992. Robert was a talented actor, a kind and courageous man, and a friend to all who knew him.”

Four decades into his career, Robert, who was Jewish, came forward with the fact that was incarcerated for 31 months in an Auschwitz concentrate camp, and tattooed with the identification “A-5714” on his left forearm. He was the only one of his captured family to make it out alive.

Clary was married for 32 years to the late Natalie Cantor, the second daughter of Eddie Cantor. She passed away in 1997.

Share your remembrances of the exceptional Robert Clary via the comment section below. But first, watch Robert talking about working with Bill Hayes on Days of our Lives, and his appearance in Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes Lifetime Achievement Award package at the Daytime Emmys (produced by Michael Fairman).
