Look for the handsome and talented Justin Gaston to debut in Salem in the new contract role of Ben on the February 27th episode of Days of our Lives!  As we have learned, Ben is the brother of none other than Jordan played by Chrishell Stause!

As we had previously reported, the casting breakdown for the role of Ben went out this past summer with the character description as early-to-mid 20’s  midwestern or southern (very slight southern accent) country boy. He is utterly charming in his honest sincere approach to life and love. Ben can also sing and/or play the guitar, though it is not necessary.”

As it turns out, Gaston fits the bill perfectly being a country and western singer himself, and having appeared on “Nashville Star” and “If I Can Dream”.   If Justin looks familiar to soap fans, he has been seen on the arm on many red carpet events with The Young and the Restless Melissa Ordway (Abby), his wife in real life!
Looks like the hunk quotient is ever expanding at the NBC soap opera!  What do you think of Justin being cast as Jordan’s brother?  What secret is he harboring from his past?   Let us know your thoughts!

I did say they should introduce Jordans family but i think he wouldve also made a good Chad Dimera as well! Maybe Ben and J.J. will become a musical act performing in Salem? Maybe he’ll hook up with Abigail or Theresa? Maybe he is gay and will come between Will and Sonny? Maybe Jordan and Ben are Peter Blake’s children and Eve(Kassie Depaiva) is their mother? Jordan could be running from an abusive husband and Ben helped her by killing him? And maybe he thought he killed him but the husband is still alive? Maybe Ben isnt her brother…maybe he… Read more »

can’t you just imagine… IF Kassie DePaiva’ Eve… was at one time married to Peter Blake… and Eve finagles her way in to the DiMeras… I’d love to see an unwavering friendship for Kristen… or an altogether tour de force allies go at it… i’d rather see Kristen have new friendships… with the Donovan women… Eve and Theresa…. would you not agree… that it was weary and trying… for Kristen… to always be on guard… with all of Salem? ED’ Kristen is written this way… but… to make her more contentious… it’d be great to see her with genuine feeling… Read more »

I realize that Kassie may be on the scene first… and Kristen comes back to town… at a later date….

what if… when Kristen comes back to town….

Eve and Kristen : are in the know… and loop… and are featured as best friends… wouldn’t this throw all of Salem for a twirl

this would give these two women a stronghold – a bond – a force of nature

If Peter Blake was brought back and with Kassie on the show, i would love it if her real life husband James Depaiva took over the role of Peter…Max and Blair…oops, i mean Peter and Eve would make an awesome couple!!!

I’m open minded about Ben, but Jordan is still a total bore.

I really like… how Chrishell Stause, is playing out Jordan… whatever the secret IS: with all her identities… I am waiting this out… because I’m smitten, interested, and allured by CS I find her endearing… as she’s coming to… coming out of her shell… whether she should or not… depending on what her past is…. I like her persona… with Rafe… it’s teasing, simple, attraction, a closeness that works for this newfound couple…. it’s not complicated right now… a budding romance on the horizon… LOL… I even love Lucas with Sheryl… how do you like them apples… AT LAST! I… Read more »

Chrishell had me bamboozled. I was watching DAYS on and off and was like..who is this actress..I like her… BUT..she’s written a bit annoying… and looked at a blog and said …WTF..AMANDA????? No wonder she hooked and annoyed me…

I’ve waited 6 months for Jordan to get more interesting, and she’s not. She’s more like Rafe’s sports buddy. At this point, I actually don’t care what she’s hiding.

Sheryl and Lucas have more chemistry than Rafe/Jordan.

I was not impressed with him on Nashville Star. Hopefully he can impress me on Days.

It seems fair– Rafe loses his sister and Jordan gains a brother—

He is very handsome and I hope they put him with Abigail to get her away from EJ!

Don’t see it happening — I think they’re grooming this EJ and Abby thing to give Sammy a reason to leave.

I feel sorry for T. – he’s in Salem and he’s always working in Brady’s Pub. He’s like the only one who works in that town – he needs a storyline. He could do better than Gaby, I wish he could meet a nice girl, Gaby is a dweeb who still wants Nick Fallon and this poor kid, he’s smitten with her and I wish he could find a cute girl of his own.

“Ben” is much needed eye candy. After the disastrous re-casting of Will Horton, Justin Gaston is just what the doctor ordered.

I guess that Doctor must be on Vacation because Justin Gaston has already been replaced before the Ink on his DAYS contract is barely dry.

Love the new character Ben. I watched the wedding today between Sonny and Will. It just doesn’t fit without Chandler playing Will. Let’s face it, the new Will just does’t have the looks, and a great looking guy like Sonny would never give him a second glance in real life. Sorry, he cant’ help it, but he’s just plain ugly.

Well, we don’t know, I understand what you’re saying, they seem slightly mis-matched, but in real life opposites attract – no, he’s not handsome in the traditional sense, but cute in his own way I guess.

I like the original Ben so much better!!!!! he was awesome and the chemistry with him and Abby was out of this world. Bad move Days, bring the old Ben back!!!! Already don’t like the new Ben. I used to look forward to his scenes with Abby, don’t so much any more. Bring back Justin!!!!!! Please!!!!!!!

Personally, I like Chrishell Stause very much. I think she’s beautiful and classy. The problem here is that her acting ability is limited by the series writing. The writers have failed to do her character justice, as the plot and lines written for her are shallow and empty. Why not tell it like it is–Chrishell is a good actress whose potential was seriously sabotaged by lackluster writing.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Julie Stands Up to MarDevil; Susan Seaforth Hayes Reminds Us Why She is Soap Royalty

Friday’s episode of Days of our Lives brought with it, let’s just say, not your typical Turkey Day episode in Salem.  It also moved the story along with MarDevil being exposed!

At Julie’s (Susan Seaforth Hayes) Thanksgiving, Doug (Bill Hayes) shouts that Marlena (Deidre Hall) is the devil. However, Marlena still insists that Doug is delusional and needs to be locked back up.  It is then that Julie stands by her husband.  Julie is on to Marlena and wonders if she should call “Marlena,” who she truly is at the moment, “Satan”.

Courtesy/NBC

Shawn (Brandon Beemer) and Belle (Martha Madison) also believe something is terribly wrong.  Marlena tells them this is ridiculous, but Belle wants to hear what else Doug has to say.  Then, Shawn handcuffs Marlena to take her down to the station for questioning.  Julie doesn’t believe for one second that handcuffs will restrain the devil, and she was right! MarDevil breaks the cuffs and flings Shawn across the Thanksgiving dinner table complete with food-a-flying, leaving him unconscious.

Now with yellow eyes and lights flickering, MarDevil goes after Doug and Julie, but Julie stops Satan in his tracks professing “Not today, Satan!” Just then, MarDevil grabs a knife and in a counter move, Julie holds out her rosary saying love is the power and that the God of love is stronger than the devil! Julie defiantly tells MarDevil that the truth is out and Satan’s reign of terror is over! But MarDevil turns the tables and sneers, “It will never be over!”

It was in these scenes opposite Deidre Hall, that Susan Seaforth Hayes shined as she has done for decades given the material, as Julie went the toe-to-toe with the devil and Susan made us believe that love can win out over everything, especially the love of Doug and Julie.

In another touching moment in the episode, Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk) tells EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) from her hospital bed, how she used herself as a human sacrifice for the devil to keep John alive and to protect her son.  An emotional EJ can’t believe that Susan was willing to die for him. However, Susan explains that a mother always protects their child and she would do it all over again when faced with that decision.  Haiduk and Feurriegel also delivered in these scenes.

With John (Drake Hogestyn) freed by Anna (Leann Hunley) and Tony (Thaao Penghlis), he eventually makes his way into the Horton house to confront MarDevil, but Satan is gone.  Instead, John finds Shawn with Doug and Julie and they inform him that MarDevil had left to fulfill her true purpose.  Just then, Marlena arrives at Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal). We fade to black.

Now below, check out Susan Seaforth Hayes in a scene from Friday’s episode as Julie fends off the devil.

Then, let us know, what did you think of Susan’s performance? What do you think MarDevil will do next to Ben and Ciara and “their” baby? Did you enjoy the Susan and EJ scenes? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
