SNS just posted a "birdie spumor" that says that EJ IS being killed off - because James Scott wants out of acting and has even closed his website. I checked and his website is indeed disabled.

:o :huh: ;) :drunk: :shrug:

Good for him. Hogan has surely jerked him around. Slap on hand Hogan. So I guess we get the teenie bopper Lucas. Disgust.

That is funny because I was thinking that earlier tonight. didn't he say in an interview a few months back about acting not being his end goal or something to that affect. For some reason that popped in my mind that maybe he quit earlier than we thought.

I still don't believe EJ is dead though. Call me cynical, but I'll believe it when I can put the knife in EJ myself and know that he is dead. Same way with Stefano.

^I agree Steve, I'm sure he'll rise from the dead in a few months, with a new face maybe. <_<

After all... tomorrow is another day!

OK I'm not an SNS member so can someone who is tell me if the person who posted the "birdie spumor" is someone legit. The Web site has been closed since the beginning of May. So it's not like that's a new development. And the other bit of getting out of acting was just what he said in that previous article. I hope that person is full of shit and just jumping to conclusions. This really sucks if it's true.

There's supposed to be a fan event that James Scott is attending this weekend so we may know more after that.

I agree. I was going to post the same thing. The website has been closed since May. It was not about him wanting to leave acting. I find this rumor hard to believe though.

Wendy (Weirdwend) is the one that posted it. Her source has been right on a lot.

It also said John and Andre could likely die as well, which means Drake Hogestyn could actually be out as well.

Found this on Days2:

Hi everyone,

I'm not sure about EJ or Andre getting killed but John will be killed off. I have a reliable set side source that emailed me last night and said that they fired Drake Hogestyn.

My source didn't say when John gets killed but as soon as I hear I will let everyone know.

The writing has been on the wall for Drake all along. Hogan has not wanted to write for him and it is apparent.

Corday out and out lied when he said he was going to put the big 4 back in the forefront. He didn't change anything. The same people he featured the first of the year are still at the forefront. Nothing changed as usual with Corday.

He lessened Steve and Kayla for awhile but most of that was due to Kayla being off.

Who got storylines after the big plan:

EJ, Sami, Lucas
Jeremy, Nick, Chelsea, Stephanie, & Jett
now Steve & Kayla
Philip, Belle, Shawn are on the edge of another story starting with Philip's baby and Belle's inability to choose

Who still doesn't have a story:

Bo & Hope - all they do is investigate a story that doesn't affect them

John & Marlena - still nothing to do.

If you ask me both Corday and HOgan are full of shit.

But it doesn't surprise me at all about John getting killed. I knew it all along.

By the way, Wendy at SNS said that the source that posted the info at Days2 (that I posted above) that says Drake was fired IS reliable.

EJ would have to be recast at this point, imho. He's all Sami and Lucas have, and the show's banked way too much on Sami to leave her isolated in her age group again. So any death is gonna be fake.

As far as Drake: bye. Shame they didn't follow through and kill your character at the beginning of the storyline to set a nice, dark tone.

God, I love you px. :lol: . If it weren't for you here...well, I don't know.

EJ isn't going anywhere unless they have something else in mind for LUMi. I love JS and think it would be a mistake if he was fired. If he quits, then fine but I do think they may have to find someone to play the role IMO.

As for Drake, if that's true, I will invite all my Days friends over for a party. This is needed. I know there are Drake supported and I respect their view but this man's acting has been going downhill for years and is now just trash, just like his attitude. The show does not need someone who is not willing to be a team player on board. Just like I said about Missy Reeves two years ago when she started phoning it in, an actor's job is to play the content they are given. Period. I don't care if you have been treated unfairly or if you are a 21 year vet. Set an example for others and do your job. I know J&M have nothing to do but that is besides the point. Drake's job is to give it his all. I know he isn't the best and his skills have diminished but what he is doing now is not good enough. It lacks energy and is actually appalling. It's sad, really. I used to love him and admire his dedication, loyalty, and how giving he was to fans and castmembers. Now, I can't stand him.

I wish they had killed him off sooner but killing him off, while it will cause backlash, is something that will spark loads of story and will leave a lasting impact, regardless of his being backburnered for months or not. He is a HUGE character and I hope his death is memorable and well-done.
