64 July 18th, 2013 DAYS Seeking Daytime or Primetime Known Actor For New Role Of “Seth”! Who Would You Suggest?

More casting news out of Salem!  NBC’s Days of our Lives is now looking to beef up the mid 40′s to mid 50′s range of characters with a casting call for a character under the name of  “Seth”!

According to Soap Opera Digest,  “The show is seeking a daytime or prime-time “name actor only” to start shooting in mid-August for the contract role of Seth, who is described as a 45-55 gorgeous male.”  More info on the casting call revealed,  “All ethnicities. Seth is an outgoing, charismatic extremely handsome man. He is charming and funny but is also opinionated at times, He is very sure of himself which sometimes can be mistaken as arrogance…. The one real chink in his armor is his young son. He is fiercely protective of him. There is some mystery as to their past and he could very well have a darker to his personality when backed into a corner.”

OK DAYS fans, let’s look at the clues … he has a young son… how young?  Is the son already on the canvas, or not?  Who could this character be linked to romantically?  Or, have familial ties too?  And finally, the big question, who would you suggest to the casting directors at DAYS of a “name only actor” with previous soap experience or primetime experience, that could fill the role?  Comment on you casting choice below!

    Justin, has been so good lately….

    really giving Adrienne the riot act… and reading her beads….

    Wally Kurth is genuine husband material…. I just adore his presence in Salem.

    you could see him playing the game… with his lawyer shutz pa… and his intellect… heck… I love his strong take on Justin… and the possibilities are intriguing… where will the writers take him?

    the Kiriakis vs the DiMera’s.

    They seriously lack minority characters. I would go with Timothy Stickney

    There are no actors who are Asian american that are part of the casts of day soap operas bec of casting calls like this one from days. How the heck can there be a known Asian american day soap opera actor when these ancient day soap operas never even hire Asian american actors to be part of the cast? Isn’t brad the only Asian american character from gh and b&b and y&r and days? Really pathetic! The recurring char of brad on gh is beyond offensive. Stupid hollywood often asexualizes Asian american males and very often portray them as horrid stereotypes while very seldom portray them as romantic leading men. The writing is horrid for the only Asian american character from gh and y&r and b&b and days. Most likely this “known actor” that days hires is going to be white.

    No matter WHAT the topic is…you twist it to be about racial diversity and the lack of Asians. Obviously its something you feel passionate about…but really….EVERY topic of EVERY post has to be a rant about racial diversity? I‘m really not trying to be rude here…but the phrase “broken record“ is running through my had. Better idea…start a blog. Rant about it all you want. They‘re very good stress relievers!

    Stephen Schnetzer might be funny, as he played Julie’s brother, Ben, many years ago. LOL.

    He was Julies brother Steven…Ben was the name of Julies father.

    Rodd replied

    Thanks, jimh, for correcting me. I totally got the names mixed up.

    4everdays replied

    No way! He played Steve Olson on DOOL- Julie’s brother.

    I think Steven Schnetzer played Steve Olson and Richard Burgi played
    a lover of Kimberly’s.

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    Stephan Schnetzer played Steve Olsen, Julie Williams brother, on DOOLs in the late 70s. Any of your choices would be good.

    They want a “name” yet they don’t seem to be able to pay for a “name” so I imagine the role would be short-term.

    Not necessarily, maybe they just want the right name and are willing to pay!

    Thank you for picking up on the “all ethnicities” thing. It sounds like DAYS is willing to cast the net wide open for the right, charismatic, gorgeous actor. And most ideas are the same-old, same-old. These are great ideas! Keith Hamilton Cobb is a very good choice.

    Kamar also a great choice. He sure brings the sexy :)

    Tom Pelphrey as Chad would be wonderful…he’d bring new dimension to the character…not to mention, Tom can brood with the best of them! A Dimera trait.

    This is a direct quote from days casting call for seth: “The one real chink in his armor is his young son. He is fiercely protective of him. There is some mystery as to their past and he could very well have a darker to his personality when backed into a corner.” days shouldn’t use phrase “c word the armor” for casting call. It’s not necessary considering how c word is a racial slur towards chinese americans and even Asian americans as a whole. How strange that c word is used on a casting call for actors of all ethnicities.

    Would any soap opera ever use the british term for cigarette? Highly doubtful bec that british term for cigarettes is understood as a homophobic slur. entertainment media would be furious if a char nonchalantly uses a homophobic slur when talking abt a cigarette. days wouldn’t use the british term for cigarettes. days shouldn’t use c word for their casting calls.
