I approve if this is confirmed to be true. He was great in Spartacus.

Love it. He’s was a great actor in Spartacus. He has that look that will work out great. Since he’s Australian we might get a hint of that accent. It’s not British but it’s close. Lol

Not familiar with his work, but will definitely give him a genuine chance. Though, would prefer a Lucas and Sami reunion.

So now NewElvis will be the third DiMera brother (along with Tony & Andre) with an Australian accent… despite the fact that Stefano never set foot in the Kangaroo Kingdom (that we know of)

I am not familiar with this actor—will he fill James Scott’s shoes?
Aside—–today’s April Fool’s spoof-episode was a hit for me—-with the exception of watching John Black open his mouth “yay” wide to kiss Doc. Triple yuck. Gross!! Has he list his making-out technique?

Nope! Yes he is handsome and in Spartacus he was good. BUT, EJ will always be James. It’s like trying to recreate Stephano, Tony, or Victor. Those three actors ARE that charcter. They brought them to life, much like James and EJ.

James was fabulous as EJ, but he’s not coming back. I’m also disappointed in some of his comments regarding Days, etc.

Nope. Not interested in him. Not even close to the original EJ Dimera.

Someone wrote on another board that its time to retire Sammie. I agree. No offense to the actress but Days is doing what it always does in not allowing its supercouples to move on. We have too many DiMera men on the show already with Chad, Jake, Tony and now EJ. Why couldn’t they kill off EJ and let Sammie move on with a new man and a new character who doesn’t have to be endlessly compared to James Scott. This relationship has always been controversial because it was built on a foundation of rape and that was before the… Read more »

If you have been watching you did see Lonnie’s Aunt talking Abe into a deal that will change Salem in more ways than one, probably unrecognizable to a lot of us.As for Sammie, I never could stand her and as long as she hasn’t got her claws into Rafe, I don’t care who her husband is.

I’m willing to give the guy a fair chance. He is handsome, and an Austrailian accent is pretty close to a British accent. I guess we will see when he says, “Samantha”. Also, Days need something or someone to beef things up a little in Salem. Seems when they lost EJ, they lost the imagination of writing. Just saying. Yes, I welcome a new EJ.

REPORT: Sharon Osbourne Leaves ‘The Talk’ with up to $10 Million Dollar Payout

Last Friday, CBS made the exit of Sharon Osbourne from The Talk official.  Now according to a report in Page Six of the New York Post, it appears that Osbourne and her lawyers orchestrated a substantial deal for her following and amid accusations of racist behavior.

Sources told Page Six that Sharon is to receive a $5-10 million dollar payout to leave the show, and that she was able to spin the statement (released to the press last week) that it was her decision to exit the talk show series that she had been a part of it since its premiere. 11 years ago.

Another source revealed that as part of her walking away from the show, Osbourne was able to have the ability to speak freely.  That source shared that Sharon, “still wants to give her side of the story. She has been on that show for 11 years and knows all the secrets.”

Osbourne had been at the epicenter of a firestorm that kept getting fuel added to it, after defending remarks made by her friend, Piers Morgan over the Meghan Markle interview with Oprah Winfrey, on the March 10th episode of The Talk.

In an interview with the Daily Mail, Osbourne addressed some of her alleged racist remarks, including one made to former ‘Talk’ co-host, Julie Chen.  When the outlet asked if she had ever called Chen a wonton, Sharon retaliated: ‘It’s all crap. It’s all crap. I don’t want to go there with her. She makes her living out of outing people. So, it’s like come on.  It’s got no real foundation. Allegations of calling a Chinese lady a wonton, it’s like – is that all you’ve got? It’s like really?’

So, what do you think of Osbourne’s potential pay day? Comment below.
