I just read that Johnson is still with DAYS and that the news was a mistake.
Thanks! I hope you are right. I just saw today´s episode and he and Shelley really clicks together. I´m sorry for Phloe fans but Phil/Steph could be the kind of fresh, longterm romance DAYS so desperately needs.

Are you referring to that Fairman thing that said a Days spokesperson said, "Jay is still Philip," or something different? To me, saying "Jay is still Philip" can be true if he's still playing out his last contract, but it's not the same thing as saying, "Days and JKJ have reached terms on a new contract."

The funny thing is I bet JKJ expected fans to be outraged over his departure and start a campaign to get him back and thus have the show accommodate the salary he was asking for...but the DH's totally overshadowed this and now JKJ leaving doesn't seem so bad. LOL.
Most Jay fans want him to leave Days because they are disappointed with all the dropped storylines since he returned.

Jay Back On DAYS
Jay Kenneth Johnson (Philip) returned to work this week, though he reportedly cleared out his dressing room last week. But that doesn't mean it's for good. "Jay is still under contract," explains a setsider. "He had to come back." Negotiations between Johnson and the show are ongoing.

So now we go from "he stormed off" to "he's BACCCK" to "it's still up in the air".

I'm really not too shocked. I figured that once Drake and Deidre were gone, things with Jay would change.

Thanks for posting. I wish I just knew one way or the other whether or not he was staying. I hate all this ping-ponging around.

Well, at least he is back and negotiations are ongoing. That is all that matters right now.

I never thought that second report ("Jay is still Philip") meant anything other than he would finish out his contract; it told me nothing about whether he was negotiating a new one. If negotiations really are "ongoing," I'm curious how that affects other cast members, i.e., are they promising Jay there will be more money for him as the cast is winnowed down? If "everybody" has to sacrifice, and allegedly PR and KA have taken pay cuts (granted, I'm sure they made more, understandably) then I could see some hard feelings if Jay stays with the show but doesn't have to take a pay cut. I don't know, just thinking out loud. As I've said before, if he's going to be romantically involved with Melanie in any way I'd rather he was gone.

I think Philip's return has stunk, and JKJ's acting is mediocre at best. I don't know where he thinks he is going. JMO though, ahha.

I really don´t know what happened between Jay and the show last week and if he walked out or not. But reading the spoilers and watching the show I clearly see the show counts with him much more than with Jarlena, Stayla or Tanna. Someone decided to really go forward with the Phillip/Stephanie romance and they will be on a lot building up the couple so if Jay leaves it hurts them a lot. That´s why I think Jay´s position is better. Of course, if he is completely unreasonable they will have to recast him anyway (as I think write Phillip off is completely out of question right now) but I think Tomlin and Co. will do anything in his power to keep him.

Johnson and Henning really click and I think that Philip and Stephanie have loads of potential. If only the romance was started when Steve and Kayla had custody of Philip's son. There would have been a lot of conflict right from the very beginning. I hope Jay stays and if he doesnt take a paycut, well, he may not have been making that much to begin with.

My guess is the Jay was playing hardball negotiations broke down, Jay went on his soap cruise only to return to the news that Drake and Dee were let go and he decided that playing hardball was not going to work because if Dee and Drake can be let go anybody could be let go so he's back to work and going back to the table.

And for a very long time there have been fans excited about the potential for this pairing. It is not like a new idea or anything. It would be great if this could be a vehicle to get Victor on our screens more . . .

I dont get it either. And I also don't see this great chemistry that some say that they have. I am probably being bias though, as no one holds a candle to Philip/Belle for me!

I had heard a former ATWT member was up for the role of Phillip had JKJ not come back....could any of you see Dylan Bruce as Phillip?
