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.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Marlena Becomes Possessed … Again!

On Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the devil had his way with his favorite person, Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall)! In story, leave it to Marlena to save Doug (Bill Hayes) by giving herself up to Satan!

As Doug revealed himself to be Satan while in a therapy session with Marlena in her office, a shook Marlena tries to comprehend what is happening! When the devil says if Marlena won’t accept him in, she will punish Doug, he does just that.

Poor Doug is left writhing in pain and on the floor, crying out for help! When we come back to the scene Marlena is not exactly right near his body, but sort of overlooking what is happening. Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) rushes into Marlena’s office to find Doug as Marlena stares blankly. Eventually, she calls for help.

After Doug is put in a hospital room and is monitored, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Tripp (Lucas Adams) can’t find anything wrong with him. Meanwhile, Julie finds Marlena at the nurses station and asks what happened with Doug during their therapy session.  Marlena flashes back to what led to Doug writing on the floor, and clearly something is way off with Marlena, because she has now become possessed.

Later, Julie sits by Doug’s hospital bed as he opens his eyes, as he tells his beloved wife, “He left me and went in to her.”  A confused Julie is left to ponder what on earth Doug could be talking about.

When Marlena comes home to John (Drake Hogestyn) – who is already concerned with Johnny (Carson Boatman) being set on making a movie of Sami’s life story which includes points on Marlena’s original possession – she tells him Doug collapsed in her office. When the two hug, Marlena slowly opens her eyes  revealing that they are glowing yellow.  Yup! We are off to the races. Marlena is now once again possessed.

So, what did you think about the scenes between Deidre Hall and Bill Hayes? Are you enjoying the revisiting of the infamous ‘possession’ storyline thus far? Comment below.

Days of our Lives Kicks-Off Possession Storyline Revisted with ‘Doug’ Twist Cliffhanger, Followed by Fall Preview

Did the ‘Devil’ make them do it? Doug Williams  (Bill Hayes) is Satan? In what can only be described as major surprise twist on NBC’s Days of our Lives, for weeks, fans have thought they were about to embark on another dementia or Alzheimer’s storyline on the soaps with another beloved character.

However, Days head writer, Ron Carlivati ,and his writing team came up with a way to make it seem like this may be Doug’s fate only to use the long-running character as the impetus to bring the classic possession storyline back on the air some 25 years later.

It all goes down after Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) calls Marlena (Deidre Hall) to ask him to see Doug, after his MRI and other tests proved inconclusive for dementia, etc, to see if Dr. Evans can assess him.  The phone call to Marlena happened after John (Drake Hogestyn) was discussing the past, since Johnny (Carson Boatman) is ramping up to a shoot a movie on Sami’s life, that will include the time that Sami walked in on John and Marlena having sex, which caused Sami to act out for years and years.

 

However, and this is key, John tells Marlena that moment in time also left her alone and vulnerable to the darkest time in her life – alluding to when she became possessed by the devil – and Marlena was clearly having difficulty admitting that or going down that road of remembrance, when the phone call from Kayla saved her from digging deeper into the past.  Well now, John and Marlena may never have that conversation as she is primed to once again become possessed.

Meanwhile, Johnny is reading Will’s script for the Sami movie, and is shocked to read in it that Marlena was once possessed by the devil, as John takes out a dusty box with his Father John collar, a bible, and a news clipping of Marlena being possessed.  John is feeling that this movie will bring bad things on to all those he loves, especially Doc, and he looks to be right!

Now at her office with Doug, he admits he knows something is wrong.  He acts out and does strange things and does not know why.  Marlena brings up why Doug locked Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) in a freezer by accident. Doug gets adamant saying: “That was no accident. I locked that bitch in there on purpose.”  Marlena is shocked at his word and tone.  Then as Doug laughs, he says, “I’m not Doug.”  Next thing you know, the lowered voice of Satan comes out of Doug’s mouth and he tells Doc, “It’s been over 25 years Marlena. But did you really think I wouldn’t come back for you?” End of episode.  Great cliffhanger!

Now, check out the fall preview released following the airing of Friday’s episode by NBC below, which teases more demonic moments on Days. Then let us know in the comment section, what you thought of the ‘Doug’ twist as the possession storyline begins?

Plus, make sure to cast your vote in ‘Michael’s Poll’ of the week on the revisiting of this classic tale now in 2021 below the preview.
