54 April 19th, 2013 DAYS Goes Magic Mike! Gering, Martsolf, Christian and Owens in Strip Tease!

Well ladies and gentlemen, now you can see four hotties of the daytime scene stripping in a fictional scene on Days of our Lives coming up on April 23rd’s episode!  That’s right!  But what makes this really fun was the interview two of the participants (Galen Gering and Eric Martsolf) just gave to TV Guide Magazine’s  Michael Logan, where they discuss the filming of the scenes a la the film Magic Mike!

Apparently upcoming in story, Cameron Davis (Nathan Owens) who has already been paying for his medical school bills by stripping at night in some joint in Chicago get some help from Rafe (Gering), Brady (Martsolf) and Daniel (Shawn Christian) to benefit Salem University Hospital. And to help Cameron out of a job the guys are dressed Village People Y.M.C.A style!

Gering noted that Martsolf was comfortable doing strip shows! “Eric clearly has a lot of experience doing strip shows! And I think Shawn was pretty drunk so he was having a good time, too. I was just trying not to embarrass myself but I kept remembering what they taught us in acting school: Dare to suck.”

And it looks like veteran Peggy McKay (Caroline Brady) attends the strip show featuring the boys! Martsolf related, “I saw Peggy waving her dollar bill and giving me that look and I just couldn’t handle it. I’m thinking, ‘I can’t do it! I just can’t do it!’  So I slowly made my way across to the other side of the stage.  As an actor I’ll try pretty much anything. You gotta accept this kind of stuff when you’re a daytimer. It’s what we signed up for. (Laughs) But guess what? I do have boundaries!”

After years having their shirts off for no reason on the defunct NBC soap Passions, Martsolf related how he and Gering were right at home! :Galen and I had no issues — certainly not after Passions where we’d take off our clothes for any mundane reason.”  He recalls one plot where he and Justin Hartley had to help a woman who’d been shot. “”I used my shirt as a pillow, he used his as a tourniquet, then we hung around the hospital topless for six episodes asking about her condition. So this thing on Days? Business as usual!”

So DAYS fans are you looking forward to this plot point?  We bet you are!  Do you think its fun concept as an excuse to see the guys half-naked?  Let us know!

    I’ve never seen Magic Mike nor will I ever. And while Shawn/Eric are the only two on this list that I’d be remotely attracted to, none of the guys are ultimately who I’d wish to see in this so-called fictional scene.

    They’re just copying the guys from GH’s Nurses Ball.

    Why can’t Days do better? Same old predictable plot twists. Great actors, horrible writing.

    Though I do love Garen and Shawn.

    Days sucks and they’ll try anything to bring some attention to the show. Hey, how about some decent writing?? Oh and I don’t need to see Caroline/Peggy McCay putting dollars in their pants.

    And the stripper thing was done a longgg time ago with Pete Jannings!

    Garen is hot :)

    LOL… I have to laugh….

    DAYS – SUCKS: !!!!!! there, I said it too.

    you’ll find me somewhere still standing on my soap box…. LOL.

    DAYS has: “SO MUCH ubber Talent…”

    when will they showcase with good story?

    Rafe and Kate better kiss and make up…. their romps are a feast to the eyes…

    Patrick replied

    you know it…. DAYS: duh? DAYS: supercouple action…..

    Rafe and Carrie….

    were smokin’ HOT… ubber HOT!

    Ces replied

    Agreed on Rafe & Carrie – loved them!!

    Tsuds replied

    I have been enjoying my free time by not watching Days.. was much easier than I thought to finally give up on it! Ces.. just let Days go.. you will have AmC and OLTL to watch now also.. We have given Days too many years to get better and they seem not to be able to.

    Ces replied

    Tsuds, You know, you’re right, I have given too much of my time to watch Days and it hasn’t gotten any better; it’s actually annoying to watch. I may have to free up an hour in my life and cut that one loose – heck, I barely pay attention to it when it’s on. GH is plenty for me to get my soap time in :)

    Patrick replied

    I’d pray to the “Gods” non-stop -

    BETTER WRITING…. PUHLEASE!

    it’s agony at times… to even think beyond watching the show…trudging. wearily.

    GREAT ACTORS.

    Rafe strip tease’ING….. Hmmm.

    there’s the word: AGONY!! Painful to watch.. Painful that each day you hope “something” happens, but nothing ever does. Horrible, horrible writing…

    I do love Rafe & Kate but could have done without L.Koslow’s scenery chewing the other day. I mean, hasn’t Rafe had enough of that? I loved Rafe with Carrie and Days blew that shot! Love Galen Gering!

    Scott (ATWT Fan) replied

    How could they? DAYS films 3-4 months in advance compared to GH. DAYS had it first, plus DAYS has done movie spoofs prior.

    Um GH. Already did it for the nurses ball, I know soaps copy each other but really?

    DOOL is taped months in advance. Unless tptb over there are psychic, I’m sure they had no way of knowing that GH was planning a similar striptease. Just one of those coincidences (but a very eye-pleasing one).

    Aria replied

    Yeah, I forgot dool tapes months in advance but like you said it will be eye pleasing so the more the merrier.

    I saw Magic Mile and these guys on network TV will not even be close..
    For one thing, it is network TV so the strip tease will be a tease but not a strip ..
    No need to get excited for nudity lol …

    The idea of seeing Galen doing a strip tease is about the worst thing I could imagine. Unless his eyebrows grew long enough to cover his body. They almost do but not quite enough. I definitely won’t be watching that day. My eyes would need bleach and my brain would explode at the mere thought…..

    Derek replied

    Ugh exactly. Why they picked the over 40 set to do this is beyond me. Brady is the hottest out of the three, but when you have men like EJ, Chad, Brian, and they picked these guys is lame.

    Patrick replied

    Rafe stood in line first.

    and I liked him.

    shawn replied

    Why would EJ do it anyway. He’s not friends with Cameron.

    Derek replied

    Neither are Rafe or Brady. At least EJ is the brother of Cameron’s sister. The point is the writers could have come up something different if they wanted to.

    They will not be any stripping they will be teasing..
    It will shirtless and some bump&grind, it is on no nasty network TV..

    Just a lil something to get ladies panting and smiling..

    Maybe but I don’t see any appeal to Shawn Christian.He always looks dirty,sweaty and smelly.He may have a good body but no appeal whatsoever for me.Yet we’re supposed to believe that his character is God’s gift to women and they destroyed Chloe and Jack,two long time fan favorites, to prop him.

    No matter what supposed crappy things DAYS does, it’ll never be a match for those crappy comments from those who obviously can’t simply turn their tv off, get a life and let the rest of us enjoy our show. And btw, Shawn Christian is hot, so go see an optometrist: you need glasses, lol.

    Skelettor aka the diva who thought she would actually have a storyline when her on-camera husband quit from the show and her antics :D

    that’s so funny!

    LOL.

    honestly… it’s pretty much cable…. here… save for the soaps…

    so there you have it…

    twisted and caluculated?

    LOL

    i watched the Magic mike scenes with relish…

    and.. lo and behold….

    Rafe and Brady didn’t dissapoint…

    i thought Daniel overacted.. and that’s because of how hard the writers are forcing down…. our minds… the pairing of Daniel and someone anyone… done with him… and alas…. tired Jenn. daniel haggie maggies more tired than Jenn. and that’s not boding well for even Jenn… Grans Jewel is tired.

    Hot for you maybe.I find him dirty,sweaty and smelly.And his face? gly.He’s a very sweet and nice person but look wise.he sucks.Especially when compard to gorgeous and smoking hot hunks like GG,JS,EM,JKJ,….He’s so far away from their league..he’s barely average looking.But we’re,supposed to believe that he’s the hottest and all the women fall for him.Pure crap
