Bad to the Bone and Rotten to the Core
Bad is evidently better in James Scott's book, so playing a neutered EJ on Days of Our Lives has been a major letdown. "Whitewashed!" says Scott indignantly. "They cut EJ's balls off and made him into the town pariah, then into the whipping boy/apologist of Salem, who's pathetic. Look, I don't want to be killing people and I don't want to be raping people, but everything else is fine. It's more interesting." And the viewer's agree. "Overwhelmingly, when I meet fans, they say, 'When is the old EJ coming back?'" recounts Scott. "They like that EJ. That character was received very strongly. He was interesting." Fortunately, Scott believes those days are about to make a comeback. "EJ's going through a period of transition. His eyes are going to be opened up on how his father works and why he works in the way he does. It's going to represent the beginning of a move-back to some of the darker side of EJ," cheers the actor. "EJ needs his balls back. Don't print anything I say without writing the word balls!"
