The hunk quotient is about to go way up on Days of our Lives when Spencer Neville arrives in Salem for a short story arc on the NBC soap opera!  Neville is an actor and a model, and as well has been a competitive bodybuilder.

Spencer will be playing the role of “Derrick”, just who he the actors is in story with is still a mystery, but he did trade tweets with Guy Wilson (Will Horton) on the series, and DAYS cast member Molly Burnett (Melanie) is also a follower of Spencer’s via Twitter.

The actor has been seen on NBC’s Parenthood in the role of Lewis Payton, and appeared in the Lifetime movie, High School Possession, just to name a few of his credits.

A DAYS rep had confirmed to On-Air On-Soaps that Spencer’s first airdate is next week on the Tuesday, December 9th episode of the daytime drama series.

So, what do you think brings Spencer Neville to the cast of DAYS for 16 episodes? Comment below!

    HOT MAN!

    Hope his entire 16 episode run is shirtless. The actor in LA hired to portray Sonny in the story of Sami’s life? Will has to run scenes with him based on his early courtship with Sonny, leading to tension, while the execs still try to cast Will’s role with an actor?

    LOL

    Ok another gay character? I’m all for representing different points of view, but why don’t they cast a lesbian character? It looks like there is about to be a lot of bedhopping happening among gays in Salem. And we’re pushing it being in daytime already, I just see more negativity coming from this. He def looks like he’ll be playing a gay character. I could be wrong though.

    DOOL flirted with a lesbian storyline many years ago with Julie and another character who was “enamored” with her.

    Someone from Melanies mysterious past…or someone Will is working with that Sonny gets jealous of and it pushes Sonny into Pauls arms…so when does this new club open that Sonny once mentioned and does it catch fire and claims Jordan’s life?!!!

    LOL, jimh! You must be counting the end of Jordan’s DAYS! I hope Ben follows her!!!

    Jordan, Ben and Clyde(no chemistry with Kate) must leave asap…this story started out promising but quickly fizzled…Days needs to bring back Stephan Schnetzer(spelling) ex Steve Olsen who was Julies brother…Stephan played Cass on AW and was popular…he could play a charming older bad boy and paired with Kate set Days on fire…and speaking of fire i think that new club will go up in flames in a Daysaster that will kill off Jordan…some time ago Sonny was talking about electrical wire which is…at least to me…a hint that a fire will start at this club…back in the 70s The Doctors had a club fire(after talk about the electrical wiring) that killed off two characters so i believe itll happen on Days…i also believe Will will catch Sonny cheating with Paul and after Will is injured at the club itll bring Sonny and Will back together…thats what im hoping for!!!

    4ever DAYS replied

    Good idea, jimh! An electrical fire could add sizzle to the fizzle!!!

    After watching Melissa Archer’s character today i got inspired again: im hoping Serena thinks Marlena is her mother who gave her up for adoption and causes Marlena months of trouble then we learn Serena is mistaken and it was Marlena’s late twin sister Samantha Evans who gave her up for adoption…Serena found a picture of Samantha thinking she was Marlena…Serena learns the truth and Marlena forgives her and neice and aunt bond…Serena will be very much like her cousin Sammy…still wish she had been Sarah but having a long lost relative of Marlenas would be fine too…

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    My bad…isnt Serena supposed to be an ex love interest of Eric’s…so my idea of her being Marlena’s neice wont work unless they pull a Marie Horton who unknowingly fell in love with her brother Tommy but in this case Serena wouldve fallen for her cousin Eric…well, Days used to be known for their contriversal storylines…but i doubt they’ll go there…lol

    Yeah but have Ben survive the fire. Clyde can die trying to save Jordan which clears away the deadwood but leaves some fresh blood. (Ugly mixed metaphor but that’s the flavour of distaste I feel after watching Clyde.)

    4ever DAYS replied

    Had to reply here, jimh.

    Yes, it would have been a nice storyline if not for the blood relations factor. lol

    Spencer Neville has a YouTube clip “Spencer Neville Dragula” where he gives a cabaret performance showing he can act and sing!

    Also nice to see a straight bodybuilder who can dance… and break a stereotype with the best of them.

    Seriously he has much better acting skills than they have shown on DOOL!

    Let’s wait and see if he can act first.

    The guy can act, but even if he couldn’t he makes great scenery.

    I really hope he seduces Will and that drives Sonny’s into Paul’s arms. PaulSon broke my heart today.

    PaulSon are so amazing!!! Unfortunately, I’m having a bad feeling about this bodybuilder. It seems that the writers plan to have both NuWill and Sonny “cheat” or lie to each other about other love interests, but possibly that will open a path for them one day wake up and say: Hey, we both screwed up, let’s forget about it, save our marriage and celebrate our 1st anniversary (Freddie and Guy mentioned in an interview during the recent Daysofdays event that Sonny/Will just had their 1st anniversary). If that’s true and they are back together in April, I’m finally done with this show. These execs and writers never seem to learn anything, even ignoring the ratings.

    I doubt Sonny will be with Paul if he’s still in the closet.

    Can’t wait for Theresa to find out. I can imagine the fun Anne will have with the news that T’s new love is gay.

    The focus should be kept on SONNY (Freddie) and PAUL (Chris). And by the way, Freddie is the best proof you don’t have to be a “bodybuilder” to be hotter than erveryone else on the show and to be the best actor!! But obviously, macho Hollywood is desperately in need of that “type” of “actors”, more than ever.

    I really hope he is not playing a gay character. I am hoping he and Melanie could hook up. He is way to cute to waste on Will. I can’t stand the new Will ugh!!

    lawrence replied

    I am sure the new Will is trying but I can’t really connect with hI’m yet so I don’t want Derek wasted on Will either.

    I’d like to see Derek have a gay/straight friendship with JJ that gets intimate. But this time JJ has a rebound fling with someone who can be supportive and hopefully stay friends when JR gets his next girlfriend.

    If Will can sleep with a straight girl then a straight guy could sleep with Derek for that two people comforting eachieve other thing … and be friends afterwards!

    He looks like JJ…I know good and damn well that had BETTER NOT be JJ’s half brother…and if it is…LOL…talk about STORY!!! EWWW..you slept with MY MOM BRO!!!

    Spencer looks a lot like Casey (JJ). Maybe he could be a new love interest for Paige! It is a tragedy what the writers did to JJ and Paige as a couple. Maybe Spencer’s character can he’ll make lemonade from the sour lemon introduced by the Eve-JJ one night stand.

    Why do writers have to mess up good stories?

    Spencer is sexy beyond belief. Hope his trial period goes well on DOOL. I notice that he has been very active this year with film. Best wishes!

    Spencer is the cutest guy on the show. Hope DOOL keeps him for a long time. He’s way too hot for Guy Wilson though.

    Even in the little air time he has been shown he’s already created dramatic tensign on par with Paul Norita … Derek should be a permanent character.

    Paul from wealth and Deek as a regular working guy creates dramatic balance that EJ and Sammi had. Derek is the Yang to Paul’s (and Sonny’s and Will’s) Yin.

    Keeping Derek with his unaffected believable regular guy performance will keep it real … and keep us watching.

    Well, it could turn out to be that Derrick has a fling with Sonny or Will, when Paul gets in-between Will and Sonny…but I’m not a writer so I don’t know how it will play out exactly – this new character DERRICK seems to be a little Trampette (my own word for slightly trampy) who so far has flirted with Eric (well sort of) and Paul (in a rather blatant way) and even Sonny who seems to have resisted. He’s a pretty good actor thus far in his little scenes….better than some other actors – I would think that the producers of DAYS OF OUR LIVES would offer him a stronger contract.

    I’d never seen this show in my life until a few weeks ago. Get Paul & Derek together STAT! That scene where Paul opened his hotel room door to leave his champagne bottle and glasses outside to be picked up just as Derek was walking by! Hot effin’ damn! Derek tells Paul about the guy (Sonny) who stopped by while he (Paul) was “busy” and didn’t knock because of the “Do Not Disturb” sign on the door. Derek didn’t get a name but describes him … height/dark hair … “decent looking” he says, while eyeing Paul, “although I’ve seen better,” with a great but subtle smile slowly appearing on his face indicating, “better, as in you (and Derek’s right) and WHY DON’T WE GET IT ON R I G H T NOW?”
