And yet another hunk joins the Salem line-up … and just in time for Christmas!   Former As the World Turns star, Mark Collier has joined NBC’s Days of our Lives in the role of Liam!  Collier will first appear on-screen by the end of December.

On-Air On-Soaps confirmed Collier’s arrival to the long running soap opera with a representative from DAYS.

And in an odd twist-of-fate,both former Oakdale Mike Kasnoff’s will be working together on the NBC soap!  Shawn Christian (Daniel ) originated the role of Mike on As the World Turns, and Collier was the recast when the show decided to bring Mike back to the canvas.

Will Daniel and Liam know each other from their past? What brings Liam to Salem? Who do you think he will be paired with romantically in story?  Weigh-in!

Liam…maybe a Jonas…and paired with Jen after her break up with Danial? Or maybe paired with Nicole just as Eric realizes he has feelings for her?

He shouldve played Frankie Brady who is still in love with Jennifer

I think it’s about time for Hope to have another love interest. Maybe finally confide what is really going on with Bo?

Unclepaco

I’m hoping the same. It’s time for Hope to have someone again and some excitement in her life again. Bo’s not coming back. Which I’m glad he’s not. He was boring.

Yum! Kinda makes me wish I watched “Days of Our Lives” but I have more sense than that. 🙂

You don’t know what you are missing! DAYS is good right now. There is a reason why it won Outstanding Drama Series at the Emmys! DAYS and GH are great right now!

gloria
Guest

You are right Phil. I have trouble deciding which to watch first (I record them)
Nicole sure deserves some happiness & a great new man!

Phil
Guest
Phil

Gloria, I tape them both too. My wife and I watch GH together, but DAYS I watch on my own so which one I watch first depends on if she is around or not. I would probably choose DAYS first otherwise. DAYS does family better than any show on daytime these days. I would like to see Nicole get her own storyline, but one that does not revolve around a man!

I hear you Joshua but this might be all the incentive I need to start watching Days again.

LOL he is man candy. I actually watched the show from 1977 to 1987 (when it was really GOOD!) and before it became white trashy and the soap opera version of “The Jerry Springer Show.” Gregg Marx was always shirtless on the show in the early ’80’s. Now that was brilliant!

My guess is Liam may be a match for Jennifer. MARKING the end of Daniffer.

I’m guessing he has something to do with Jordan. But that’s just my guess…..

For a moment, I thought he might be a “Bo” recast…interesting to see whom he’ll be paired with down the line.

I wonder if he is somehow connected to Rafe’s physical therapist’s past?

Glad Mark is with DOOL. Bold and Beautiful missed the opportunity to hire him as Ridge.

lol. He is about 20 years too young to play Ridge.

I’m excited about this, especially if Liam gets involved with Hope. It’s about time DOOL featured Hope/Kristian Alfonso more than they have. I liked Mark Collier on ATWT and think he’ll be a great addition to DOOL.

Phil
Guest

Little old to be Chad and young to be Bo… I wonder if he will have any connection to a major family… Would be nice if he were a Horton… Maybe he is Jordan’s ex! He will be paired with Jordan or maybe Hope or Teresa!

Johnny
Guest

I always loved how Mike Kasnoff got younger and younger with each subsequent recast. Lol. He started out 25 and 15 years later he was 26. Lol. But I like Collier. He has an easy going affable charm. Maybe Bo Brady has gone through a similar de-aging and he will play Bo!

Derek
Guest
Derek

How old is Bo supposed to be? Mark Collier is 43, so even if Bo is supposed to be late 40s, that could still work.

Johnny
Guest
Johnny

Well..I know applying age logic to soaps is an absurd proposition…lol…however…Bo’s son Shawn graduated high school in 2002. That makes him now pushing 30. So Bo has to be over 50 as it was established that Bo was in the merchant marines in the late 70’s and early 80’s. So…could Collier play Bo…yes. He just looks younger and has a baby face and he could easily play a character in his 30’s as most actors do play younger…not older. But…this is a show where Kevin Dobson and John Ingle played the same role of Mickey Horton. They are 15 years… Read more »

I think now he should have been cast as Frankie Brady…Jens old boyfriend…they rekindle their old romance just as J.J. begins to like Danial for helping him out and tries to get him back with his mom…

Johnny

Now I am jealous. Lol. What an awesome idea!! It boggles my mind that fans can come up with such awesome ideas and the people who are supposedly the talented professionals running these shows can’t!

‘this’ – “lovefest” w/daniel knows no bounds apparently…

go figure… this is my greatest fear… that they may very well end up being brothers.

just what we need….. “MORE” daniel please! please? please!?!?

DAYS is so good… but, why does it have to be thru the eyes of UNheralded Daniel

ME1987
Guest
ME1987

So true I feel like him & Abby are the worst actors he over acts & Abby has no emotion she’s just a pretty face. Kristen beyond over acts but it’s entertaining when she does it. Sami & her random loud outburst then seconds later looking like somebody threw egg on her face is so annoying. Nicole is the only all around character who can do it all & James Scott as Ej.

I think he will be a love interest for Hope.

I think Liam will turn out to be Daniel’s brother, another egg child of Maggie’s!

He could be the new Jack! Radical reconstructive surgery without amnesia. Jack posing as someone new!!!

Bo with radical reconstructive surgery due to his undercover work to bring Stefano down!!!

Harlee

This is great news and I wish he would be the new ‘Bo” because he make a great Bo Brady and Hope needs some badly because she’s has to be “itchin’ for some lovin”!

Mary SF

Don’t give up hope– he could be the new Bo. Remember when DH came on the show, he was just this mystery man, who turned out to be Roman, who turned out to an Aliman, who turn out to be Stefano’s half brother. On this show, anyone can turn into anyone— Liam could be a brainwashed Bo—-either by Stefano’s hand or even the ISA. stranger things have happened on this show. If it looks like a duck and an acts like a duck, on DAYS it is probably a giraffe LOL.

Mark was super sexy on ATWT. I was kind of hoping he’d be a returned Mike Horton. But, DOOL is lucky to have him. I hope they develop his character well and don’t waste his talents.

No way!!! Too many Mikes already. It would be cool to have Michael T. Weise back in that role! Sorry for any and all spelling errors.

can you imagine… the fan roar of approval…

if, they did bring back Mike Horton….man… if they’d just bring back Laura and Bill Horton…. played by uber sexy John Martin

i’d lose it

I could see Mark Collier w/Hope… he has that Bo resemblence and appeal

No connection with Daniel, for the love of all that’s unholy.

The time travelling egg mutant eats up enough airtime as it is.

Not sure how I would feel about a Bo recast. Wasn’t crazy about the last one and that was what… 20 years ago?

He could be one of Will’s college proffessors. I’m a bad speller whom did not attend college. LOL

Nicole needs to find some happiness; she has waited long enough. She and Mark would make a great pair. Plus, Nicole is the best female actress on the show. Far too many of the very young set for my taste -Will should stay gone; no recast; Sami is getting to me – yell, have sex, yell, have sex – boring. Rafe needs to get out of the hospital and back in the picture, too. I like Justin Kierakis, too, but not so much with Adrianne.

Melanie
Guest
Melanie

Oh I can’t wait to see him on Days! Honestly…I think he needs to be paired up with Hope if Bo isn’t coming back. I hate to see Hope with anyone else…but if he isn’t coming back, then she needs a hot new man! I think they would make a great looking couple. And I think Daniel and Nicole should get back together. I don’t like seeing Dr. Dan with Jennifer.

Donna
Guest

I agree with you Melanie. If Bo isn’t coming back he would look good with Hope. I do like Daniel and Jennifer together though, but she needs to get a life and a backbone.

Melanie
Guest
Melanie

Oh…I don’t want him to be Bo that had plastic surgery. Let him be a new character…and a good guy!

Donna
Guest

He is playing a guy names Liam, who know Daniel one of the Drs at University Hospital. I hear there will be a major drug dealer coming to Salem. Maybe it is him. I think he would be a great matchup for Hope. Maybe he has a past with Jordan. Interesting… Can’t wait to see.

He would be so good for Nicole she really needs a good man, and I want Eric and Brady to want her even more when they see her with her new man!!!!!

I think he should definately be a new character unconnected to either family. Someone that NICOLE can get together with. My gosh that character deserves some happiness. Since Kate, Gabi & Sami are in a world of legal hurt, give Nicky a positive storyline for a while.

Shirl Gallo

Give him to Abby so she will leave EJ alone….Good golly DOOL don’t mess a good thing. Sami and EJ belong together. They are the glue to your show. Otherwise many will just turn it off.

DAYS Brandon Barash On Stefan’s Resurrection: “You’ll See Some Revenge, Corporate Takeovers, Losing a Memory … Maybe Gaining of Memories”

Dr. Rolf is at it again on Days of our Lives! While Jake DiMera has met his maker, apparently his twin brother, Stefan O DiMera is coming back to life.  That sets the stage for Brandon Barash to reprise his original DAYS role.

In a brand new interview with his on-screen brother, Dan Feuerriegel (EJ) on the Days of our Lives You Tube Channel, Barash talks on what viewers can expect once Stefan is completely back in action, and how he feels about taking on the darker twin once again.

Brandon teased: “You’ll see some revenge, corporate takeovers, losing a memory … maybe gaining of memories.”  With Stefan back in the DiMera mix, look for the two brothers to not always see eye-to-eye. Barashs shared that they’ll be, “Butting heads for sure”.

Meanwhile, will Stefan and his true love, Gabi (Camila Banus) reunite once she knows he is alive? Barash weighs-in on that and more ‘burning’ questions.

You can check out the chat below.

Now, let us know, are you glad that Stefan O DiMera is back on the Salem canvas? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

BREAKING NEWS: Days of our Lives Ending Its Run on NBC, Moving to Peacock Starting in September

In a major move, Days of our Lives, the longest-running scripted series of all-time on NBC, is exiting the television network and will now be in its new home on the NBCUniversal streaming platform, Peacock.

The shift marks the end of DAYS’ nearly 57 year-run on broadcast television. Days of our Lives debuted on NBC back on November 8th, 1965.

Look for all-new episodes daily of the series to begin on Peacock starting on September 12th, along with the show’s library already available to stream for Peacock Premium subscribers.  According to a press release from Peacock, “The historic move to Peacock creates the ultimate destination for daytime fans to access the library, new episodes and Peacock Original Days of Our Lives: Beyond Salem in one place.”

In its place, NBC will fill the daytime drama’s current timeslot with NBC News Now, an hour-long news show anchored by Kate Snow, Aaron Gilchrist, Vicky Nguyen and Morgan Radford. According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC affiliates will also have the option to add local news to the hour.

In a statement, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming chairman Mark Lazarus shares: “This programming shift benefits both Peacock and NBC and is reflective of our broader strategy to utilize our portfolio to maximize reach and strengthen engagement. With a large percentage of the Days of Our Lives audience already watching digitally, this move enables us to build the show’s loyal fanbase on streaming while simultaneously bolstering the network daytime offering with an urgent, live programming opportunity for partners and consumers.”

NBC’s decision means it leaves only three daytime soaps on American broadcast TV: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful. 

DAYS has found recent streaming success with its limited-series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem Chapters 1 and 2, which introduced the viewing audience to the Peacock platform.

To watch Days of our Lives on Peacock, you will need a premium-tier paid subscription at $4.99 per month. The service offers an an ad-free experience at $9.99 per month.

We will have more on this developing story.

So, what do you think of NBC removing DAYS from its daytime line-up, while moving it to their owned-streaming platform, Peacock? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Brandan Barash Shares Reaction to Jake’s Death on Days of our Lives: “It Was Fun Getting To Know You”

This week on Days of our Lives, Jake (Brandon Barash) met his untimely demise, when he was shot by a mugger.  Thus, signaling what would seem to be the end of the line for the character.

However, on today’s episode of the NBC soap opera, Jake visited a grieving Ava (Tamara Braun), so perhaps there is more than a ‘ghost of a chance’ that Barash is sticking around.

Photo: JPI

As previewed exclusively last month during our virtual interview with DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati …the Salem scribe revealed there would be another death in Salem, following the murder of Abigail Deveraux DiMera (Marci Miller), and the character would be ‘dead-dead’.

However, speculation is running wild that with the return of Dr. Rolf, that perhaps Jake will be resurrected … or Barash will once again play Jake’s twin, Stefan O. DiMera!

On Instagram, Barash had some fun with Jake’s demise with comparison side-by-side photos – one of which features Barash as Jake covered in blood, and reading the Handbook for the Recently Deceased!

Barash captioned his pic: “How it started/how it’s going. #ripjake It was fun getting to know you. 🙏🥃”

So, what do you think about DAYS killing Jake? Do you think Brandon will be sticking around Salem? If so, as who? Comment below.
