I don't think they have over the top sexual chemistry, but I did think that at their best, both actors projected a great deal of comfort and affection for one another. My chief complaint was in the blush of the first weeks of their relationship, they felt like they had been together for years. Some people interpreted that as buddy buddy, but I thought there was simply more focus on their affection for one another rather than sexual desire (despite us seeing them fairly undressed and in bed). I don't necessary think that's a bad thing. Frankly, it's been awhile since Days has produced a really hot love scene that was in any way explicit between straight characters.

I don't know how anyone could be surprised that Will has been recasted so soon when we already saw the casting call over a month ago. The "Country Boy" role description was a dead ringer for CM but not necessarily Will. I'm certain that Chandler knew right from that casting call that the show was looking to replace him and he wanted to leave earlier if the show did not need him anymore.
I'll repeat what others have said before. The new actor must have steaming hot chemistry with FS. He must also fit well with AS, JS and DH. Can it please be Brant Daugherty??? I know he's busy with primetime but it doesn't seem like he's getting great exposure there. Also, I would love to have an openly gay actor in the role, but he still must be a decent actor first and gay second. We don't need anymore pretty himbots on the show. Nu-Cameron fills that role quite well.
This is the first time that I have heard any gay rumors about Chandler. If I were to see a photo of him making out with a dude other than Freddie, I would probably assume that it was for another role. Heck, Freddie attends more gay-themed events than Chandler and we have all seen definitely proof that FS is straight (if not bisexual).
The more I think about it, the more I could see the first scenes between Sonny and NewWill involving a love scene or something close to that. The big complaint many fans had between Freddie and Chandler was their lack of sexual chemistry. I was one that was off and on with that between them in that department. As of late it was much more buddy like vs. romantic like with chemistry. Part of that could be writing... I just have this feeling the first scene between Freddie and the new actor is going to be a hot love scene to try and draw in the fans that weren't crazy about that lack of chemistry between Freddie and Chandler. Seems like a low blow to Chandler if that turns out to be the case, though.
I think that Days has had a love scene/sexual chemistry problem in general the last few years. Brady and Madison were more explicit and didn't generate much chemistry at all. Dannifer have less than zero. Although some people like Ejami, I don't think they've had much of a memorable love scene. Even Brady and Nicole's recent scene was just okay in the heat department.
Wilson are probably the only couple on the canvas that managed to project that they actually enjoyed one another's company, and in context that's something. Brady and Nicole do, but they aren't together.
