I am thrilled beyond thrilled the JKJ is staying, but damn, what I wouldn't give to see Prescott on Days! He was just too gorgeous on ATWT.

My dream would be a JS, JKJ, Prescott sandwich!

Thanks for sharing!

Yes!!

Thank God. The show needs all the familiarity it can get and it's clear they were banking on him big time in future story.

I would've liked Duhon but just not as Philip.

I could see him on Days in some role. He has a look that I think would fit.

He must be in need of money. He was doing OK in primetime. Staying on this soap, especially being in the final cast would be young actor career suicide.

Dylan Bruce, ex-Chris Hughes from ATWT was up for the role, as well.

Well, he has a pay check for another 17-months. Thatwill hold him over when he is an un-employed actor hustling for primetime jigs.

^That is a good question about that story leaking.

Knowing that Drake and Dee knew for awhile they were going, I have to wonder if new of their firing was leaked to strong-arm Jay into staying. It's just way too coincidental IMO. News of him leaving breaks Friday and then we learn about D&D?

When Days does leave us, I so want to see some sort of gossip show cover them. They would have material for months LOL.

Jeremy Horton would fit quite nicely I think. They should say sayonara Dattilo, hello Duhon. I point out Dattilo since he's a Horton.

But yes I'm glad he inked a new deal. The one story that has a good direction, Phillip/Stephanie did need to be put in limbo as well.

It appears Soap Opera Mafia Don/Days of Our Lives executive producer Ken Corday had three name actors lined up to replace Jay Kenneth Johnson as Philip Kiriakis had Corday's strong arm tactics to scare the actor hadn't worked. Reliable sources reveal Dylan Bruce (ex-Chris, ATWT), Jon Prescott (ex-Mike, ATWT) and Josh Duhon (ex-Logan, GH) all tested for the role of Philip Kiriakis. However, Johnson did indeed sign a new contract.

"They had to already have these actors lined up," says the source. "No work is done in Hollywood on the weekend, so the Days execs must have already had them ready just in case."

I have to admit it was perfect strategy for "someone" to leak the news of Johnson allegedly clearing out his dressing room to Soap Opera Digest.com just before the magazine was set to break the soap story of the decade, the firing of Deidre Hall and Drake Hogestyn. I'm sure the logic was, what kind of sympathy will Johnson get from fans who are reeling from the loss of the show's two biggest stars. Silly Corday, tricks are for kids.

Since Corday is play fast and loose, I wonder what type of cheap recasts will assume the role of former favorite characters. Will Sandra Ferguson grace as Marlena for a christmas cameo next year?

There ya go! :biggrin: .

Amello, I can see that. He may be good for Jeremy.

The Philip/Stephanie stuff is more or less why I'm so happy about this. I just feel like it's such a goldmine story-wise and it's started so well that Jay leaving and, essentially, destroying it would suck big time.
