I'm hearing tidbits too. Funny thing is, I was actually at the event LOL! It's interesting to hear the spin when I heard most the info first hand and witnessed some things that told me that without a doubt, James is a hot commodity.
I won't share any of the info I heard, but I will share an experience I had with some non-fanbase viewers.
I was in the bar at the Marriott hotel where the event was held, hanging out with some of my friends from FL. Anyhow, I needed to exit the bar for a few minutes. But before I could, a woman who sitting with five of her friends at a table asked me if I had been at the afternoon session. I told her that yes, I had. They were from Rhode Island, had the cutest accents (although they laughed at me for mistaking their accents for Long Island LOL and for even suggesting that they had accents -- me being from California, I had the accent). Their ages ranged from about 50 - 65 years old.
Wanna guess who the subject of their first celebrity question was?
"OMG, you met EJ? OMG, is he as handsome as is he is TV?"
"Is that accent real?"
"He is such a dreamboat. If I were younger . . . oh who I am kidding? My speed is more like Tom Horton."
"Did you touch him? Did he touch you? OMG!" (He did. I have the photo to prove it!)
They were acting like excited teenagers. And these definitely were not people who surfed the web. They were longtime fans of the show and they seemed to have no problem enjoying EJ or his storyline.
This conversation continued for awhile. I sat down at their table and had a great time talking to them about my experiences. I found out that most of them had been watching Days since day one. They told me about the Hortons, Doug and Julie's saga . . . it was quite fun to hear the history. Their next favorite character was Thaao. They seemed very pleased with the return of the DiMeras.
I guess the point of my post is that James is probably more popular than we on the web realize. When I returned home, every person who is a fan of Days asked me if I met James Scott. It was always the first question. And of course, they wanted to know if he was as "dreamy" in person as on television. Now I can't claim this is scientific or anything like that. Just my observation. But I can guarantee this -- there was no spamming in this poll LOL!!!
Oh yeah, to answer the question about his looks . . .how can I say this? Reports of James' physical beauty have not been exaggerated. He's stunning. And he's a gentleman. It was such a positive experience to meet him. Actually, all of the stars there were pretty cool.
