While the new Chad DiMera (Billy Flynn) has just debuted on screen on Days of our Lives, the man originally in the role, Casey Deidrick, has landed a leading role in a new series from MTV called Eye Candy!

Written by Emmy Grinwis, Eye Candy stars Victoria Justice as tech genius Lindy who begins to suspect that one of her online suitors might be a deadly cyber stalker. When her friends at the cyber-police uncover a potential serial killer in Manhattan, she works with the hackers to solve the murders while unleashing her own style of justice!

According to, Deidrick, plays the male lead Tommy, a dry-witted NY native who descends from a long line of cops and works as a detective in the NYPD Cyber Unit.  He is skeptical of Lindy’s tactics and motivations, but he ultimately decides to work with her.  

The series has a 10-episode order!  So, what do you think of the news of Casey being back on TV in a new role?  Comment below!

    This is the reason why Casey left Days….At least that is my understanding of the situation. So for his sake, I am happy for him and hope all his dreams come true. However, if things don’t work out the way he had hoped, I hope he would be willing to return to Salem as Chad. But I do wish him well in all of his endeavors. I believe Casey will do all he can to accomplish his goals in the industry.

    If Casey does return to Salem, he will need to straighten out the character. New Chad’s interpretation is awful.

    I’m gonna watch JUST FOR CASEY!!! He seems like a perfect fit for the young leading male on an MTV series. I hope it’s interesting and I hope it last a long time. MTV tends to give their shows a chance, so I suspect it will be given a fair shot. Can’t wait to see it.
