As we previously reported, Days of our Lives in on a talent search down under to find an Australian hunk to play the role of a new doctor named Finn, who comes to Salem under the tutelage of Dr. Daniel Jonas! (Shawn Christian).

According to Australia’s Daily Telegraph, over 200 actors have submitted themselves for the daytime chance of a lifetime here in the U.S and to be a part of the series upcoming 50th anniversary.

In the Daily Telegraph feature they spotlight three men among the throngs who are vying for the role:  Russell Queay, John-Paul Jory, and Ben Jesinowski (pictured l to r).

Jory is a former garbage man who grew up watching DAYS with his seven siblings!  He related: “I remember watching the show with my brothers and sisters in the afternoon so it would be incredible to have the chance to become part of something I grew up with.”

Queay revealed he has taken his preparation seriously, spending hours inside the emergency department of St Vincent’s Hospital to get a feel for the character: “I wanted to see what it was like to be in that world. To land a gig like this would mean you’d be learning off 20-year veterans.”

So, do any of the three actors pictured here strike your fancy and make you hope they will win the part? Let us know which one, or do you hope it’s someone else?  Comment below!

Why are they wasting money on this role when they could use the money to bring back Shawn, Belle, Carrie or Austin?? I’d even take Billie!!!! DAYS will pale in comparison to GH’s 50th!!!! Like another man is needed in Salem!! Get rid of Eve, Ben, Clyde, and Serena!!!

On the plus side, while working under Dr. Dull Jonass, he might meet Melancoly Jonas and take her back to Australia with him…lol

I nearly fell off my chair laughing when the one guy said he was doing research in a hospital- has he never watched the show—considering this show doesn’t even have an ER, everyone gets wheeled into the hall to be examined, then quickly whisked off to surgery, or the same room on the same floor for everything, from birthing babies to gunshot wounds medical accuracy will not get you the part buddy. Just spend some time in the gym bulking up, because I bet you money your first scene will be Melanie running into you while you are shirtless coming… Read more »

…and Dr. Daniel is the medic of all trades….from colonoscopies to brain surgery….poor Daniel. What a guy! Everything falls on his shoulders.
Why don’t they bring back Mike Horton? He’s a doctor. Why a back bushman from Australia?

All of the above? DAYS must be popular Down Under Like B&B is across the world, hence the contest. As long as stories are strong, I am good with new characters. Even after a few years now, I am still trying to sort out family trees and hoping the anniversary year provides some help. I like DAYS and its old-school storytelling and its humanity. The murky corporate storylines are not of great interest nor is the history I have been reading of black magic and fantasy. Don’t go there any more! There are beautiful people and strong talents in Salem.

NBCUniversal CEO Jeff Shell Says Peacock Hit 18M Paid Subscribers Up From 15M In September

On Monday, during a webcast session at the UBS TMT investors conference, NBC Universal CEO, Jeff Shell shared that the NBCUniversal streaming service, Peacock has hit 18 million paid subscribers.

Interestingly, that is an uptick of 3 million paid subscribers since the end of September of this year, where the service had 15 million.

As soap fans know, Days of our Lives debuted exclusively in its new home on Peacock on September 12th, and viewers who watched on linear TV and NBC had to switch modes and pay-in for a subscription to watch the show.  However, there has been no quantifying data released on just how well DAYS is performing on the platform.

In terms of its sustainability and its ad-supported streaming platform, Shell added: “We were late coming into streaming, but we clearly chose the right business model.”  Shell noted that this strategy has helped offset declines in linear TV revenues, and a worsening advertising market.

The CEO went to explain: “We believe in the premium video ad-supported, dual revenue stream essential broadcast and cable on streaming, driven by key programming.” Shell also shared that declines in cable subscribers is putting pressure on affiliate fees and advertising rates, so it’s becoming more important than ever for Peacock revenues to offset falling cable TV revenues and that the TV ad business is “definitely getting worse.”

So, what do you think of the uptick of subscribers to Peacock since September? Is Days of our Lives a key player in this? Have you gotten use to watching your favorite soap on the streaming platform? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

DAYS Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes Pay Tribute to Robert Clary

Days of our Lives beloved Daytime Emmy Lifetime Achievement Award recipients, Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes (Doug and Julie Williams), paid tribute to their longtime co-star and dear friend, Robert Clary (Ex-Robert LeClair, DAYS).

On Wednesday, Clary passed away at the age of 96.  On Days of our Lives, Bill Hayes and Robert Clary performed many times together as Doug and Robert when the soap opera had “Doug’s Place” as a nightclub venue for the characters to meet up and have story, while also taking in some music.

 

Bill and Susan shared their thoughts on Clary’s passing on their Instagram on Thursday; accompanied by some clips of performances by the characters of Doug and Robert.

The Hayes’ expressed: “Our Dear Robert Clary… Like a diamond, Robert was tough enough to survive this world and emerge brilliantly. He was so full of life… so saucy, so sassy, so superb at everything he tried. The energy and optimism that filled his 96 years was amazing to behold.  When he performed with pathos or joy, he always touched our hearts. He was an adoring husband, a firm friend, a trustworthy team player and, in crisis, deeply caring. In childhood, he had experienced humanity’s darkest days- then, as a man, filled the world with light.  His story in two words to remember: choose life. #RobertClary”
