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 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 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.
