As we previously reported, Days of our Lives in on a talent search down under to find an Australian hunk to play the role of a new doctor named Finn, who comes to Salem under the tutelage of Dr. Daniel Jonas! (Shawn Christian).

According to Australia’s Daily Telegraph, over 200 actors have submitted themselves for the daytime chance of a lifetime here in the U.S and to be a part of the series upcoming 50th anniversary.

In the Daily Telegraph feature they spotlight three men among the throngs who are vying for the role:  Russell Queay, John-Paul Jory, and Ben Jesinowski (pictured l to r).

Jory is a former garbage man who grew up watching DAYS with his seven siblings!  He related: “I remember watching the show with my brothers and sisters in the afternoon so it would be incredible to have the chance to become part of something I grew up with.”

Queay revealed he has taken his preparation seriously, spending hours inside the emergency department of St Vincent’s Hospital to get a feel for the character: “I wanted to see what it was like to be in that world. To land a gig like this would mean you’d be learning off 20-year veterans.”

So, do any of the three actors pictured here strike your fancy and make you hope they will win the part? Let us know which one, or do you hope it’s someone else?  Comment below!

    Why are they wasting money on this role when they could use the money to bring back Shawn, Belle, Carrie or Austin?? I’d even take Billie!!!! DAYS will pale in comparison to GH’s 50th!!!! Like another man is needed in Salem!! Get rid of Eve, Ben, Clyde, and Serena!!!

    On the plus side, while working under Dr. Dull Jonass, he might meet Melancoly Jonas and take her back to Australia with him…lol

    I nearly fell off my chair laughing when the one guy said he was doing research in a hospital- has he never watched the show—considering this show doesn’t even have an ER, everyone gets wheeled into the hall to be examined, then quickly whisked off to surgery, or the same room on the same floor for everything, from birthing babies to gunshot wounds medical accuracy will not get you the part buddy.

    Just spend some time in the gym bulking up, because I bet you money your first scene will be Melanie running into you while you are shirtless coming out the doctor’s shower– LOL

    …and Dr. Daniel is the medic of all trades….from colonoscopies to brain surgery….poor Daniel. What a guy! Everything falls on his shoulders.
    Why don’t they bring back Mike Horton? He’s a doctor. Why a back bushman from Australia?

    All of the above? DAYS must be popular Down Under Like B&B is across the world, hence the contest. As long as stories are strong, I am good with new characters. Even after a few years now, I am still trying to sort out family trees and hoping the anniversary year provides some help. I like DAYS and its old-school storytelling and its humanity. The murky corporate storylines are not of great interest nor is the history I have been reading of black magic and fantasy. Don’t go there any more! There are beautiful people and strong talents in Salem.
