Looks good. Reminds me a little of the Will before Chris (I forget his name).

Great news. I think this casting confirms there will be Will/Mia pairing. He is right about her age and they gave the actress playing Mia contract around the same time, AFTER her most of important part in the baby switch storyline already ended.

Judging by the photos he definitely has the looks to secure DAYS first position in the young teens girl demos, hopefully he can act as well. (but DAYS casting department is on a roll lately)

We will have Will back and soon after him Sami returns as well, things are starting to look really interesting.

As for Melanie, I think her and Will was the original idea before they decided to make Melanie older so Molly Burnett can play the part. She is 21 in real life, the same like Shelley Hennig, so I think they will keep her playing for Phillip and in the Titan storyline. I think TPTB likes Mel as the hurting, vindictive, scheming little b*tch and thatīs the reason why Nick was let go. It was too soon for her to fall in love and turn good.

It was Darian Weiss and he does have that look to him.

Anyone know what is up for Will? Is he coming back for Lucas? Will he still be an ass to Sami?
I look forward to what he is supposed to be doing...hopefully not just a babysitter or something. I hope he tries to be a nuSami scheming to get his parents back together.

I agree other then I think firing Nick was about more then that. Nick was such a unique character and he didn't fit in with the vision of the show Tomlin had. It's not just about talent. He wants good looks and hot bodies and that is what Days seems to be doing now. That and it was clear Nick's days were numbered for a long time. Even Hogan's last few months barely featured him.

Bringing back Will is a good choice..The show does need one or two teens..As Chelsea, Steph, and Max have moved into the 20's age group that used to be Lucas, Sami, Austin, and Carrie

I am looking forward to the return of Will. I have to wonder if he will confess to shooting EJ? Also I was wondering if he might be the father of Mia's baby (now Sami's baby)? She could have been in school in Switzerland and gotten tangled up there with Will. Hard to say but it wouldn't surprise me to have Sami raising this baby (her grandchild) thinking it was her own. Just speculation. LOL Days has done some whacked out stories.

This guy doesn't have many credits to his name, and he looks very un-Dayslike, LoL. He reminds me a bit of Darian Weiss.

Let's hope he can act...

That's what I was thinking, Sami was a teen parent and history does seem to repeat its self in Salem. Will being the daddy to Mia's baby? That sounds a little better than some other story lines that were brought up.

What I want to see is how Will is gonna handle the baby switch and the Chloe situation thats gonna be going on. Not to mention if Rafe is with Sami, them being in a relationship, we all know how Will always wanted his parents to be together.

Funny that, chronologically, Max is old enough to be Chelsea's dad...

Am I the only one who really loathed their previous Will?

I have no ill will for Chris Gerse personally, none at all.

But he was just a horrible, horrible choice for Will. He looked NOTHING like Sami or Lucas, he really wasn't that great in the part, etc. Someone said earlier in the thread that he looked more like Lucas, when really he didn't resemble either of his parents at all.

This one looks a bit more fitting, I'd say. But acting wise, we'll have to wait and see. Although with the writing on the show currently, who really can make anything of it?

I liked him well enough in the role when he was younger, but once he entered puberty he was awkward, like a lot of kids are at that age. He looked nothing like Lucas and Sami. I thought he could have passed for Austin's kid.

The new Will looks like he could be Lumi's, resembling Sami the most. I'm glad they're bringing the character back. I'd like to see him call Sami on the carpet for her brilliant moves over the past couple of years. :drunk: It would also be interesting to see Sami and Lucas dealing with him pulling stunts and schemes like they used to do.

Oh, lord no! LoL. I couldn't even watch the scenes he was in, because it was just too painful.

I just want to know why every actor who plays Will is always in desperate need of a haircut, LoL.

I think this new guy's hair is pretty cool actually. The long hair look is in now. Unlike the old Will, his hair isn't all frizzy and bushy.

True say!

I think Kenny prefers the bald look instead :P
