Days: Dustin's Rumors updated 9/4

From anonymous . . .
It looks like Days is going to get some more younger leading hunks! They are casting for Ford Decker, who should begin airing sometime in October. Ford is a 20ish hunk, caucasian, said to be a major recurring character. He's in college, the school's star athlete and in the hottest fraternity. He's a ladies man with a bit of mystery and danger about him. (note: the name or other details could possibly change by time the role is cast)

Speculation: Given Chelsea and Stephanie, who are involved in this whole Salem University storyline this fall, already have enough men in their lives . . . could this guy be for Abby should they be bringing her back after all?

Lame..maybe we will lose Jett..I really don't get Hogan's need for brining on so many short term characters for his stories..

It doesn't work for Days, as they end up with more airtime than most of the vets..

Being as they are bringing in three new young women co-eds, a new male is essential to keep a story alive.

I had read someplace that Jeremy returns to college as a football player, too.

This is what I was referring to once before. You can make the show look a lot better, but until stuff like this is fixed what is the use. It is this type of stuff that is keeping fans away.

GET EM STEPH!!

We don't know how bad this story will be. This may have come into play before Ed arrived and he may change it a bit. Things might not be as bad.

I much rather see the teens in this story as it makes more sense then TTS. It's more for their age group and, if their airtime is as it should be, there won't be a problem. We won't know how this will turn out until it's onscreen IMO. If it doesn't take over the canvas, it will be fine.

If they must give these younger characters air time, I guess a college setting is better than this awful TTS storyline. However, they have to keep this story off the front burner. DAYS will never be successful at building the younger cast if they keep shoving them in our faces 3-4 days a week at the expense of the vets. It causes resentment and keeps viewers from becoming invested in them. Introduce these characters and their story slowly so we gradually become interested in them. Of course, this hasn't been happening and that is why as soon as we hear about a casting call like "Ford Decker" or a spoiler about the trio of sorority girls we all get frustrated and angry and want to hate the story before it even begins.

Yes! I just posted in the casting thread how they needed some frat guys.

Shoot, make Ford a random Dimera or, like, Nick's secret fraternal twin, and we've got it made, y'all! 'Cause y'all know once they connect them to a main family that's almost the same as integrating them slowly.

Could this "new" hunk be Jeremy, or is he gone for good?

Right on.

That is exactly why we do. You can only base your perceptions on the known and with Days the known at this point is that it most likely will not be just a minor story. For almost a year now the teen/younger scene has not been minor - they have been front burner now for 9 months straight and if you count Nick/Chelsea alone with Max/Mimi you can add a few months before that because Nick and Chelsea got quite a bit of airtime in latter 2006 too.

Even with a new EP aboard you can't change your perceptions because in his interviews he talks more about making the show better cosmetically and technically and better acting. There is no promise of better balance or better stories. So we can't even judge it on that.

Perceptions are just something it is going to take a while to change and then they have to be proven wrong before you can change them.

After all... tomorrow is another day!

With this latest Ford Decker revelation I'm wondering if there is some game they play in the DOOL writers' room where they try to see who can come up with the absolute WORST character name and the one who wins gets to have their chosen name added to the show.

Seriously... Pocket, Jett, China Lee, Candy Cane X 2 and now Ford Decker?

I'm going to be optimistic about this storyline because I did enjoy the last college invasion that the show had when Shawn and Belle went to college. Remember Hartley House? I loved it, and I was pissed when they dropped the college stories in order to "mature" the characters. Lame!

I didn't mind the 2002 college stories because I liked all (well, most, anyway) of the younger characters back then, plus it was during B&C's stint writing the show, so I think those two things played a factor, for me. This time around, I really only like Nick, Chelsea, and Max. And Chelsea's the only one of them that's actually gonna be in college, sooo...

It's a rumor so until it's confirmed, I won't judge. Haha.

While true, Jett and Jeremy's cast descriptions started off as just rumors. So did the sorority sister cast descriptions.

Well, I know Jeremy is supposed to run off to avoid punishment for his actions, but I haven't heard anything of him being let go from the show. So, I think Jeremy may reappear at Salem U.

Exactly. Although I definitely wish this was nothing more than a rumor...
