    Michael Muhney!!! I would love to see him take the role of EJ but from the sounds of it would make a great Ted…I just want him back on my screen! He would make a great addition if he has not been scooped up already!!

    Michael Muhney is shooting a movie, so he’s not available.

    Yes, but he never said how big or small his role is (at least that I know of). Plus, Days shoots so far ahead that maybe he would not be needed right away. It would be possible if they want him bad enough. There is always a way. :)

    I don’t think you will see MM on daytime again Y&R, B&B & DOOL are all involved with Sony. GH would be the only possibility don’t see it happening!

    I say Roger Howarth. Anything to get rid of Franco!

    I like that idea. Watching Roger try to play Franco is akin to watching my yellow lab run away from the gopher he dug up. Failing that, how about Ingo Rademacher? The actor who played Jerry Jax on GH.

    I thought the same thing. Definitely, if it’s not a recurring role and is contract.

    Brandon Barash, Billy Miller, Josh Kelly, Jeff Branson, David Fumero (OLTL) or the guy that played his brother Antonio. One of the Vega brother actors would add ethnicity which Days really needs.

    I agree with you, one of the Vega brothers from OLTL or the actor who played Rachel’s youngest son on AW.

    I think Days should spend less time on new cast menbers and more money on new sets. The show looks so antiquated and cheap. It’s 2014 for goodness sakes. And the opening montage needs an update as well.

    Scott (ATWT Fan) replied

    The opening will never receive an update; it’s barely changed since its inception.

    The various characters are like ALWAYS in that stupid coffee shop or Pub or whatever it’s supposed to be , or in the fake leaf Park, or running into each other at the Square – and occasionally at the hospital. But, you are right, man the sets are in need of a facelift – and they need to do some genuine outdoor scenes every once in a while – it gets a little monotonous. I like the show (am a fairly new viewer, only about seven months) but c’mon, I agree completely that they need to get a little more adventurous regarding sets.

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    Days used to do outdoor location shoots but i guess its Days dont do them to keep costs down…other 3 have currently done them so i guess they must have it in their budget…Days could use new sets…Jens office at the hospital is reused as Hope’s office at the police station and in other scenes which is too obvious…Back in the 90s Days had an outdoor set they used as The Salem Place Mall that looked more real than the Horton Town Square which looks more fake then Barbie’s dream house…at least they removed that white couch that sat in the square…it never got dirty…but then again it never rains in Salem and the birds never poop…lol…a when they do show the square they could at least play background noise like traffic sounds and birds chirping…jmo!!!

    Mary SF replied

    Actually the Horton Square is set up from the docks, where all outdoor scenes used to be shown for years– everything from causal meetings to New Year’s Eve celebrations, to murders— it was too funny for words how much action those docks saw— new sets would be great, but I would settle if they at least did a better job of disguising recycled sets ie– the hotel room that Kristen is holding Daniel in “St. Louis” is Nicole’s hotel suite in Salem, but with the bed turned around facing a different direction– not that is really lame– they even used the same bed and bedding— come on the budget doesn’t have room for a another headboard and some different pillows???

    Johnny replied

    I completely agree. The show needs a new opening. Keep the hourglass…keep the theme…keep MacDonald Carey…but modernize it. Start with the hourglass and as the camera zooms on it…they could show various cast members right inside the hourglass. They could do some really cool visual effects with it. Actors deserve to be featured in opening credits!

    Is this an E.J. recast or someone tied to the Jordan character like an ex lover from one of her alias’s or when she was Tammy Sue?

    Reply

    Mary SF replied

    I doubt they would recast EJ so soon, but they might be needing a new anti hero for the show to take over the role of someone who is nasty but has a reason to be. My bet is “TED” is a test character, if audiences like him, they will flesh him out to take over as the new bad boy who needs a good woman to change him into someone noble–like Hope did for Bo, Kayla did for Steve, Jennifer did for Jack, etc. As for being tied to Jordan, if this is truly a short term character then okay, that could work, but if they want this character to have long term potential tying him to another newbie might backfire.

    Whoever it is i hope he is good and not another person to come between Jen and Danial…maybe he could be someone who knows Theressa…still Jordan and Ben use use a little more action…

    Isn’t this a recurring role?

  18. Johnny says:

    I don’t care who they hire as long as this character seeking revenge has a valid reason and a point for being on the canvas unlike the last similar character of Liam. That just seemed like a hastily made up character and story designed solely to see the two former Mike Kasnoff actors from ATWT on screen together. And while we are at it…talking about pointless stories….this can NOT be all there is to the Jordan story and if it is then I am seriously disappointed in these writers who are usually so good!! You don’t bring on a popular actress…saddle her with one of the least connected, least popular males on the show…offer up a year long build up to a blockbuster pay off…and then deliver a hillbilly from the Ozarks. This show had the opportunity to have Jordan be ANY connected character from the past…any long lost Brady or Horton…having her be Lil Tammy Sue is a big letdown.

    Reply

    Mary SF replied

    It was always my hope that Jordan would be Hope’s and John’s baby that they had while they were Princess Gina and the Pawn. I thought while they were those persona’s because they would be afraid Stefano would kidnap or take the child they gave the child to someone to raise and that is why she had so many identities — and then when they were returned to Hope and John they forgot about the child, which would explain why they never searched for her. O well, what a shame they didn’t go in that direction– it would have given Hope a story while Bo was MIA and could have kept John in town.

    Reply

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    They could still go there…Clyde isnt Jordans biological father…and the woman whom Jordan thinks is her real mother couldve worked for Gina and given the baby to raise as her own?

    Johnny replied

    See…..fans often would make better writers then the writers!! As much as I dislike that era when Stefano raped Hope and had John having sex with her…at least if Jordan was that character it would come out of history…it would integrate her into the very core of the show. That’s a very creative twist Mary…one I hadn’t thought of. I had her as a recast Stephanie, or a recast Cassie, or maybe Sandy Horton’s daughter….someone like that. Days has told the brother/sister with troubled pasts many times before…Steve and Adrienne, Emilio and April, Austin and Billie, Rex and Cassie. I think the writers just wanted Chrishell on the canvas and had NO idea whatsoever what her past would be, so in taking a year to reveal it, they had time to think of something and make us like her. But I still say get her out of Rafe’s orbit. Rafe sucks the life out of all his scene partners and leading ladies. I don’t understand why that character is still on the show. He is connected to no one and lingered in a hospital bed for the better part of a year. I think Brady and Jordan should get together!! Let Brady have a normal relationship for once!! Eric Martsolf is hilarious at playing a whacked out addict, but he is also very good as the stand up (as opposed to falling down lol) good guy.

    CeeCee replied

    Yes, they could still go there. But, while in the guise of those personae (John and Hope, that is), Jordan would be Stefano’s and Hope’s child….really twisted twist. Obviously, I am not an expert on this soap as you all are. But I did make myself somewhat familiar with its history.
    Through all this, Stefano never thought it could be his child, so thinking it was John’s, Mary’s theory makes a lot of soapy sense.

    4ever DAYS replied

    I often thought that! Like jimh said, they can still do that. Good storyline!!!

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    They could always find out later that Jordan is a long lost Horton and was stolen and raised by Clyde and his wife…maybe Sandy Horton had a daughter and was told the child was stillborn…Sandy had a breakdown and remains in a mental hospital…there are other Hortons out there we never here about: Tommy, Sandy, Steve Olsen, David Banning and a few others…would be nice if they would bring back the actor who played Steve…Stephan S. who also played Cass on AW for many years and have him be Jordans real father and a new love interest for Kate…but i do like Marys idea better and it would work best…

    Reply

    Johnny replied

    I like that Jim. Who didn’t love Cass from Another World?? I was not even a thought in anyone’s head when he was on DAYS but I knew he was. And what a strangely sexy seductive couple Kate and him would be…..lol…..I am laughing at the possibilities…Kate with her head bob and her biting her lip….they both have dark hair……Jim you come up with the most outrageous ideas…but when they work….you nail it!!!!!!!!

    4ever DAYS replied

    Yes jimh, I would like to see Julies brother. I’m a long time viewer whom has never seen him! I’ll keep my fingers crossed for the 50th!!!!!

    Reagan replied

    I hoped that Jordan was some how related to Kate, giving a twist to Kate hating her so much. And yes, it would have been awesome if she was some how related to Julie’s family that is never mentioned. Agree that they missed a good opportunity here, yet we know Days. Just like they decided one day that Daniel do-good was related to Maggie, one day Jordan will turn out to be someone’s long lost child.

    I would like to see Blake Hood back on a daytime drama, unless they would think he was too young for the role— or Y&R should bring him back as Kyle, since their last Kyle was a bust.

    Reply

    Jimmy replied

    A bust? Try an epic failure! Hartley Sawyer was awful in the role, he was the worst recasting choice Y&R has made in recent history. I wasn’t fond of the new Abby when she was first airing but man, HS was SO much worse! Blake Hood fit the role of Jack’s son perfectly, he even looked like Peter Bergman… How on Earth Y&R found such a terrible replacement, or why they chose to recast in the first place, is beyond me.

    Michael Muhney (ex-Adam, Y&R) would be perfect for the role, as it’ll likely bump up to a contract status, especially with him in the role.

    The name ‘Ted’ is just for casting and not the name they really plan to use…

    Most likely that won’t be the real name– often they use fake names to disguise to the press and public the role they are really casting for.

    Forever Billy !!!! He can play any role….good, bad, mediocre. Roger Howarth…yes; Jean Paul L. …absolutely. But, please not Cameron Mathisons or Don Diamont.
    Why not someone young? I appreciate the older cast but this show needs fresh romance. Let this new character be the son of the betrayed man who swoops onto Salem to avenge his father.
    In doing so, he becomes mesmerized by a girl/woman completely losing himself within her charms and derailing from his purpose. JJ and Paige are sooo very boring and the more mature couples are just that…. I’d love to see couples in their 20′s or so, with a good, solid relationship. That is wishful thinking on my part. I am young, but even I think there’s way too much bed-hopping on soaps.

    4ever DAYS replied

    Don Diomont (spelling?) played Carlo forenzo (spelling?) on DOOL around 1985. His character was after the older Liz Chandler Curtis (Gloria Loring). I can remember their theme song…Bruce Springsteen’s “I’m on Fire”.

    I don’t know how old Billy Miller is but he has done impressive work on other shows, and maybe he is trying to steer his career away from soaps – but, he would be a very viable candidate for the role.
