SOD:John Callahan Exits DAYS; August 31st issue; article summary

Dr. Baker heads out of Salem this week for the second time in a year. "In this day and age, you always hope for bigger and better, but my understanding form talking to Gary Tomlin was that Baker is someone who comes and goes on the scene, and right now, he's in a go position, "shrugs the actor. "I don't know what the future holds: I wouldn't count Dr. Baker out."

Bakers Salem run ends with him on trial for the attacks on the men of Salem. Hope is brought in to testify. "As he started to have feelings for her, he saw that she was not some kooky broad who likes to make money by mugging," observes JC. "When Baker goes to trial, he sees that Hope's going down; her career, possibly her psyche, is going to be damaged forever, and he just decides to stop the trial and take the fall and say, 'This is it,' and pleads guilty. So, in the end, he turns rather heroic, which is a nice twist on Baker, because he's always been so ethically testing the waters and sort of floating on the surface."

As for another comeback, he says, "It's completely up to them what they want to write, and if I am available if and when they do call, then we'll see which way it goes." In the meantime, the actor is auditioning and spending time with his daughter, Kaya, 8. "My role is playing dad, which is the best one," he smiles, adding, "And it pays a little better than scale."

His last airdate is August 26th.

I wonder if Dr. Baker will get a tougher sentence than Hope because his last name isn't Horton or Brady.

I wonder if we will see him again. I always enjoy having Baker in Salem. I bet we haven't seen the last of him.

John Callahan was so wasted. He's a great actor but Dr. Baker is such a horrible character.

It had been a wonderful evening and what I needed now, to give it the perfect ending, was a little of the Ludwig Van.

Aww...I'll miss John Callahan. Baker was an okay character. I hate to see him go, but really what was left for him to do?

I will definitely miss Dick. During all those shitty weeks of Days, he was the only shining light, him and Nicole's banty commentary.

Aww...I will miss him! I bet he will be back at some point. The show seems to like him.

He's such a fun character and you need characters like him. They should get rid of Gus and make him Vivian's confidante and sidekick. I mean, he's a doctor and has sleazy connections. He certainly could be of use to Vivian.

I do like this exit for him. It's good character growth. It will actually be sad, for me, seeing him go.

I'm really not that sad to see him go, there is nothing they can do with him anyway.

He will be back. After a few months (10-12 SalemDays) in prison, the "reformed" doctor will decide to come clean about the circumstances of the "switch". He will be needed to confirm Sydney's True Parentage.

Just a prediction for February 2011 Sweeps.
