I assume she'll be playing Colleen.

She's the mother of the Patridge Family. That's how she's known. She's gone on to do many other things. And she's an Oscar winner. She's pretty big. I never thought I'd see her on DAYS though. :lol:

She is 73 now, and won an Oscar in 1960. Hardly anyone in this age gets a part no matter how talented is, so I doubt she was expensive. She is probably glad to have some money to add to her pension.

Anyway, thanks god Ali isnīt playing the old Coleeen. That would be ridiculous.

Thanks for posting. I hope she'll be playing Colleen. Makeup to make people look older is not one thing that Days has ever done well.

Okay, after this, DAYS better not EVER use the budget excuse as to why they can't bring back someone like Eileen Davidson, Louise Sorel, etc.

I doubt Shirley Jones is busting the budget.

Maybe not. But I can't imagine they're paying her with pocket change, either.

So do I. Plus, let's remember Corday is coming into some more money with some of the writer salaries coming off the books.

Who knows. She may be a friend to Ed or something and is coming on as a favor or for a reasonable salary.

This is GREAT news. This makes the whole Colleen thing so much better. Plus, she does have a bit of a resemblance to Ali in the face IMO.

This is probably an Ed Scott idea because it's too smart to be Corday's :lol: .

I am not too worried. She will most likely be gone by summer.

Just short term stunt casting to get a blub on Access Hollywood.

Agree - and I just looked at a pic of her - I also saw a resemblance!

I guess if it gets DAYS some publicity, I can't be too upset. I just hope she won't be playing Colleen - which, of course, means she probably will, LoL.

Other soap do this stunt casting all of the time. DAYS can now be added to the list.

Yep. I have no problem with it though. At least it wouldn't be some fabricated role created just for the benefit of the actor or actress, that is assuming this is for Colleen.
