Days of our Lives enduring and 92-year-old star, Bill Hayes (Doug Williams) got the surprise of his life when during a commercial break while attending a taping of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Hayes’ grandson spoke up to Fallon, about that Hayes long-running career at NBC and that he actually appeared on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson three times as a guest.

Bill, who was in the audience with his wife, Susan Seaforth Hayers (Julie, DAYS) and his grandson, was then invited onstage by Fallon! From there, Hayes was mic’d up and talked about his early career from being on Your Show of Shows, to the release of his hit single, “The Ballad of Davy Crockett”.   Sheryl Crow, was the musical guest up next who paid a bit of an homage to Hayes, as you will see.

I cannot possibly love this any more. Bill Hayes is a gem. He’s a love and a kind soul. I’ve had the privilege of talking to him one on one and photographing him for press, loving him as a fan, and just admiring him as an enduring actor and presence on Days of our Lives. He is happy to accept praise and admiration, but he does so with grace and humility. He’s such a professional — look at how he just settled right into that seat with Fallon. He didn’t go on and on, but he said a ton, all… Read more »

Wow, just wonderful to see Bill is doing so well at the age of 92…I loved the love story of Addie, Doug and Julie and if I am correct William Bell was writing DOOL which was so good at the time…

Bill Hayes is becoming a good example of how to promote himself and daytime with his Jimmy Fallon appearance and recent online documentary of his life (free for any of those who haven’t seen it and just the right length.) I would love to see more Classic Daytime stars out there promoting daytime.

The Tonight Show needs to really schedule people like Bill Hayes and other icons of the industry. They helped create television and the industry.

‘Days of our Lives’ to Honor James Reynolds’ 40th Anniversary as Abe Carver with Special Episode

As DAYS viewers witnessed on Friday’s episode, Abe has been shot in the park, after Carmine pulls out a gun, and Jake (Brandon Barash) tries to apprehend him.  Jake rushes to Abe’s side and calls an ambulance and he is rushed to University Hospital.  Once there, Abe eventually flatlines, while Lani (Sal Stowers), Paulina (Jackee Harry) and Eli (Lamon Archey) are besides themselves with worry.

This sets the stage for Monday’s episode where Abe will go into the light, as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) works to save his light and while he hovers between life and death, DAYS fans are treated to the special 40th anniversary episode of James Reynolds as Salem’s Abe Carver.   The Daytime Emmy-winning actor, (he won Lead Actor in 2018) began his Salem journey when he first aired back on October 29th, 1981.

While Abe revisits the past, he will meet up with his late wife and love of his life, Lexie, only according to Soap Opera Digest, Renee Jones was not available to be a part of the milestone episode. So, in a pivot another actress was brought in.

Reynolds told SOD on the Lexie appearance, “The young actress they brought in to be part of this was just wonderful“n giving the essence of (their) relationship and communicated beautifully, just beautifully, in her face and her eyes, as Renee did quite so often.”  He added, “I was kind of transported, actually.”

In addition, James continues to be the the longest-running black actor in the same role in television history.

DAYS Head Scribe, Ron Carlivati, Shares On Marlena’s Possession 2.0: “We Decided John Needs To Get On To This Sooner Than He Did In The Original, Because That’s What The Audience Would Expect”

As viewers of NBC’s Days of our Lives are watching the revisiting of the classic possession storyline revisited with its 2021 version 2.0, the stage is being set for plenty of devilish drama, now that good doc, Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) is once again in the grips of evil.

We have already seen her with yellow eyes, conjuring up some demonic plans, and of course, the devil trying to pull the wool over the eyes of Marlena’s husband, John Black (Drake Hogestyn).

Back in the 1994/95 version of this storyline, Father John emerged and exorcised the demon from Marlena, so he knows a thing or two about being possessed, and the horrors it caused to Marlena, and the town of Salem 25 years ago, and as we have seen John is very, very concerned about all this talk of Marlena being possessed by the devil from the script that Johnny (Carson Boatman)  is set to make into a film on Sami’s life story.

Current Days of our Lives head writer, Ron Carlivati, spoke with Soap Opera Digest in their latest issue on newsstands now, about his plans and the creation of the 2021 possession storyline. Ron revealed that John is not going to be in the dark for long, sharing: “John has been through this, so the devil isn’t going to be able to pull the wool over his eyes the way he did the first time.”

Carlivati also added: “Even though all soap opera stories, I would argue, depend on some characters being a little bit dumb, in this case, we decided John needs to get on to this sooner than he did in the original because that’s what they audience would expect.  Look for the story to move along at a pretty good clip. We are not rushing, anything by any means – we are having so much fun with the story, but it was important to us that John not look stupid here so he starts to suspect something is wrong with her pretty soon.”

So, are you glad that John will not be completely dumped? Will Father John return to save the day? Are you enjoying the story thus far? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Then, check out our recent interview with Ron all about the creation of DAYS limited-series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem still streaming on Peacock.
