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

He is very handsome!! I’ll bet he will be very successful in the role.

You’re not alone, Sammi. This recast is a major letdown so far. Don’t like the attitude, don’t like the hair, don’t like anything yet.

He’s a great. He can act.

Sandra Pavone

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?

Aimee Dyer

Nobody will fill James Scotts shoes, apparently. This guy is awful!!

Celia

Absolutely correct —-one episode was all I needed to make up my mind. This guy is so stiff—watch out for anyone with thin lips. LOL.
I don’t find him good-looking either. Just my opinion.

AGREE!

Glad we concur, Celia. He’s so cold, when he opens his mouth a light comes on.

Absolutely don’t like him..no one can fill those shoes. Just not believable. Sorry.

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.

Momo

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

Anna Munos

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

Oh yes I definitely approve. Cant wait to see EJs return.

I don’t know. I’m not seeing it. But I’ll give him a chance.

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.

It’s important to remember that Sami raped Austin Reed. She drugged him ( like the date rape drug ). That was one reason why some people didn’t have a problem with Sami and EJ being together. Two of a kind.

Sweetazzcanbe

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.

Celia
Guest

You’re right about beefing up the plots—-any plot. Maybe this new EJ will figure out that Jan snuck out of the hospital, stole Belle’s coat, purposely left the button behind just to frame Belle for Charlie’s murder.

I do not approve. There’s only one EJ and it’s James Scott. When Sammi leaves town again, just let her go back to EJ don’t want to see this EJ. Or, they could have offered James the world just for a few episodes to be with Sammi when Alison Sweeney leaves which she will eventually.That’s when James Scott could film a few episodes to leave with her they should just leave it the way it was. I never understood why James Scott left the show and then Alison Sweeney left a few weeks later. If it was only a few… Read more »

I definitely approve! JS has no desire to return after Days made him several generous offers. I adored him in the role, but he moved on and so should his fans. Sami’s had an absentee husband much too long. Days brought EJ back to life, it is time to bring him back on canvas.

Well, now that he is actually here…he looks nothing like the handsome photo above…I guess he has gained weight…yuk! And, he is NOT cute or handsome at all. He for sure doesn’t work for me and doesn’t evoke any of the feelings James did with his fine looks and fine acting! Keep looking for a suitable replacement DOOL!

I DO NOT like the new EJ. Hes nowhere near as attractive as the last one, and NOT a good actor. Ugh

The new EJ is icky! Not good looking at all. And the “intimacy” between Sammy and him looks forced. Like ewww…..and his body is soft! No muscle. Hit the gym dude. Find someone else

Dan is doing a damn fine job as NuEJ, no matter what the mean girls/bitches say.

He is not the right fit for this role. I think Lucas and Sami would be slot better. Don’t want to watch anymore!

Horrible. Horrible. Terrible actor. No synergy or chemistry with ANY scene or character. I literally cringe when he comes on screen. What the f$&@ is up with those tiny pursed lips all the time?

I like the character of EJ, but have always liked Sami & Lucas together. This new EJ is doing a fantastic job! He’s spot on as EJ and has really made the role his own. I still can’t get with Chanel, even though the new Chanel is a better actress. And I will always prefer Kate Mansi as Abigail.

Mike Richards Out as EP of ‘Jeopardy!’ and ‘Wheel of Fortune’

What has become of the beloved game show treasure Jeopardy!, since the death of its iconic Alex Trebek, will surely at some point be made into a movie with backstage drama galore and breaking headlines news all along the way.

Now comes an official statement from Sony Pictures Television that they have now let-go of Mike Richards from his duties as executive producer of both Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune.

This comes after Richards controversial choice as the new syndicated host amid allegations, lawsuits and what seemed to be the final straw, The Ringer’s report and findings of insensitive and sexist comments made by Richards on The Randumb Show, a podcast he hosted in 2013 and 2014.

Suzanne Prete, EVP, Business and Strategy, Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy!, sent out an internal note to the staff on both shows this morning. The content included that Richards would depart his EP roles effective immediately and Embassy Row’s Michael Davies stepping in to do the job on an interim basis.

According to Deadline, the note read as follows:

Dear Team,

I’m writing to let you know that Mike will no longer be serving as EP of Wheel and Jeopardy! effective immediately.  We had hoped that when Mike stepped down from the host position at Jeopardy! it would have minimized the disruption and internal difficulties we have all experienced these last few weeks. That clearly has not happened.  Michael Davies from Embassy Row has agreed to help with production on an interim basis until further notice. Michael and I will work together with all of you in the weeks ahead to ensure that production remains on schedule and we do not miss a beat as we head into the new season.

I know this has been a challenging time for the entire team, and I want to thank you all for your cooperation and professionalism over these last few weeks. As Ravi mentioned last week, I will be more involved in the day-to-day on our shows moving forward and I am looking forward to working closely with all of you.  Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you need anything. 

So, what do you think of all the twists and turns that have now led to Richards ousting as host and his EP duties on two game show? Comment below.
