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

Many handsome men are not good actors. Just saying

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.

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.

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

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!
