So, SOD describes Summer as being in her early 40s.

What about Jessica Collins? She’s 44.

Jimh – The Bree Williamson was the last actress to play Jessica Buchanan on OLTL. She did a wonderful job. I agree she would be a great choice for this Days role.

I like your suggestion of Kimberlin Brown—it doesn’t seem like she will be back as Sheila on the CBS soaps and she can play looney better than anyone—here’s hoping!!!

LOL, Jimh! I’ve decided to wish for Julia Roberts whom was suggested by Greg. Jennifer Aniston would be good too!

Jimh(leave it to beaver)
Jimh(leave it to beaver)

Now that she has been mentioned i just bet Jennifer Aniston will get the part and will be in scenes with her dad John…as Victor i can see him catching her stealing something from the K mansion and Victor remarking something like, ‘Where is your father? Have you had no proper upbringing?’ she replies, ‘You remind me of him’…she could turn out to even be his long lost daughter or maybe she kidnaps Brady and Theresa’s baby???

Yes, Jimh!

And her character can put Tate on the black market where he is eventually adopted by a character played by Brooke Shields (she played a rabid DAYS fan on ‘Friends’)!

Victoria Rowell!

Alicia Minshew. She’s said she grew up watching DOOL and she has friends in the cast. Plus she lives in NY and probably wouldn’t want to do a long term contract on a west coast soap.

Kimberlin Brown would be good! She’s missed in daytime!

Beth Chamberlin, Fiona Hutchinson or Beth Ehlers! Of course of they could also make Carly have a twin and bring Crystal Chapell back!

I said the same thing that it should be Fiona Hutchinson since she played a thief so well on Guiding Light! But I would be happy with Beth Ehlers and Beth Chamberlain also.

Greg

Well since it’s the 50th and she is a major super-fan I would love to see them cast Julia Roberts in this role.

Martha Byrne, Beth Ehlers, Jennifer Landon, Cady McClain, or Noelle Beck would be great! And sometimes short term roles turn into long term ones! It happens all the time.

Either Bree Williamson, age 35, or Florencia Lozano, age 45, would be great. Both did outstanding work on OLTL. It would be great to see Florencia and Kassie DePaiva work together again.

Andrea

Susan Haskell, who played Marty on OLTL, could do this role. She’s good at the troubled outcast looking for attention.

Yes!!!!!!!!!!! That is a wonderful suggestion. Susan is absolutely terrific. I miss her so much.

i really miss the second colleen on y n r – Adrienne Leonne, not sure why she was recast with the last one. I really miss her colleen and jt on y n r… maybe days could cast her as summer. She plays tough really well! i could picture her and Shawn D really hot together!

Bree Williamson sounds perfect for the casting breakdown except that she’s a bit too young.

If the age was right, I would say Debbie Morgan as the show NEEDS ethnicity. Also immediately thought of Brianna Brown (GH, Devious Maids) as she’s great at playing bad. She just signed on to a new pilot, so don’t know if she would do a short term role or if the pilot will take all her time.

People seem to ignore that the breakdown called for someone in their 40’s. She may be a bit too old in the age bracket they are looking for, but what about Cady McClain? I think she’d be fantastic in the role and would kill to see her back on daytime! She should be working on a soap opera that is going to use her talents for all they are worth!

Okay, I might be in minority here but I don’t think this is good news. All these actress being named are wonderful, but the gig is short term, I think they all deserve longer contracts if any of them are chosen.

To me it is insulting to offer an experienced day time actress a part only to capitalized on their name and then tossed them to the curb when they don’t their bit to hike ratings during no doubt will be a sweeps period.

This is basically stunt casting which really doesn’t add anything to the show– if this character was all that essential they wouldn’t need a big name to play her– so why bother creating the character at all or why not give any actress a shot at it?

I don’t know maybe some of these actresses mentioned need the work and don’t care if it is short term or think they will be so good that the role might last longer– but for me, this is just a ploy and pretty obvious one at that.

How about Patty Duke – she’s young at heart and started acting was she was about seven years old. She deserves a consideration.

How about Fiona Hutchinson since was delicious playing a jewel thief on Guiding Light?

“Summer,” really? Y&R already has a (dreadful) character named Summer.

Are there no more names available?! Talk about your lack of imagination. I am disappointed in you, Sony, but that doesn’t surprise me when you put out one movie called PASSENGERS and then a few years later you do it again, but with a completely different plot.

Sony what has happened to you? You are better than this!

They often use a different name in the casting call than the actual name of the character.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Ben Recalls The Terror He Caused In The Cabin!

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

On Wednesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) has brought Ciara (Victoria Konefal) to a very familiar place to him, the old abandoned cabin in the woods where he had: tied up Chad (Billy Flynn) and Abigail, where he had traumatized Abigail, and where she had given birth to Thomas, and where he murdered the midwife, Wendy (Denice Duff).  Throughout the episode, Ben flashes back to all those moments in time, and the heinous acts he perpetrated.

For this episode, DAYS re-created these key scenes in Ben and Abigail’s back-story, by having Marci Miller redo the scenes, originally played at the time by Kate Mansi.  Both Wilson and Miller were riveting to watch.

In present time, as Ben tends to Ciara’s wounds, he looks around the cabin and flashes to kidnapping Abigail.  When Ciara finally starts regaining consciousness and starts to moan, it brings back memories of Wendy aiding Abigail in the birth of her son, Thomas.  He recalls murdering Wendy and burying her.  Ben begins to relive more and more moments, and then the horrific time he wanted to set Chad and Abby on fire.  Ben continues to get more beside himself, and begins to pant recalling it all.

Later, Ben is standing in a corner, staring at the flame of the lighter that had been used to start the fire that had nearly killed Chabby. Just then, Ciara wakes up and takes a look at Ben. and she screams,”Oh my God.”

What did you think of the performance of Rob Scott Wilson? What did you think about Marci Miller redoing the scenes originally that aired that were played by Kate Mani? Comment below.
