Yeah, The show can choose to end an actor contract every 13 weeks but an actor can't up and leave every 13 weeks. He started in January 2007 so he probably started filming in December so who knows when his contract is up.

DAYS Casting Shocker!
Hot on the heels of the news that DAYS got a pickup (at an extremely reduced fee from NBC), Digest has learned that negotiations between the show and Jay Kenneth Johnson (Philip) have broken down and the actor cleared out his dressing room yesterday. Money is said to be the main issue. "Everyone is being asked to take a paycut," reports an insider. Sources say the show is looking for a potential recast and actors are being brought into the studio today to read. A DAYS spokesperson says, "No comment."http://www.soapoperadigest.com/news/breaking/
Weird. Can he really just leave so easily? I understand the contract talks can broke down, but he still has to stay till his current contract ends, hasn´t he? Otherwise the show can sue him.
They can end an actors contract after every 13 week period.
Yes, I know. But the actors cannot. That´s why all the newbies are immediatelly given a three year contracts. And this sounds like JKJ is the one who left, forcing the show looking for a quick recast.
