More DAYS Casting?

Posted Image

By SOD Posted: Sep 9, 2011

Spotted at Spago: Soap vet Ian Buchanan (ex-James, B&B; ex-Duke, GH et al) lunching with DAYS's Co-Executive Producer Greg Meng and Head Writers Marlene McPherson and Darrell Ray Thomas, Jr. in the L.A. hotspot. Hmmm...

Ah... so he's the mysterious stranger who's coming to Salem in February.

I approve!

He'd qualify as "dashing" to me.

Marlene tweeted about lunch with a dashing stranger, and I don't think he's been on DOOL?

Didn't Marlene tweet about "Dinner"? And that was a week or two ago - I'm not sure it's the same person.

I agree....that was 2 weeks ago, and she said dinner and didn't mention Meng....my bet this is someone else...he can pass as Bill Horton? Maybe they can't get JM back

Much prefers sweevil, snarky EJ over Father Figure Fucktard Eejiot.

Damn! MarDar are certainly doing a lot of wining and dining if this isn't related to her previous tweet.

My gut instinct tells me it's one and the same - and he would definitely qualify as a dashing stranger. I don't know much about his work - but isn't he Australian? I wonder if he'll be in some sort of story with Quinn.

Wow! TOTALLY intrigued by this. Ian Buchanan is one of the best male actors in the business....DAYS would be VERY lucky to snag him.

He could totally work as a Bill Horton recast....I do hope though that this is not the actor that Marlene was talking about 2 weeks ago....I was hoping that was BD for Lucas.

He seems too young for Bill. I really hope that Jack's and John's problems are not due to Stefano. Maybe he is some new high powered person who causes problems in Salem. I might work that he is Quinn's father?

I think you are right. I bet this is what the tweet was about. And he certainly fits the description. If LK is going to be happy, I wonder if he's headed for Kate.

Even if he is not Bill Horton, I would love for him to be a new villain on the show....older-aged villains FTW!

If he's Australian that could be a possibility especially if he's tied into what occurred with Jack

Yea, I think this is the same guy too. MMP didn't mention Greg Meng being there, but she didn't mention DRT being there, either. They sure are bringing on quite a bit of people, but I do hope this works out and they are able to get him on board, if that's what the plan is.

This is what I call good casting, I hope that will they snag him up. I can see him as Bill Horton but I think John Martin would be a better fit. Bring him !

DOOL is hiring a lot of talented actors lately (Sarah Brown, Tamara Tunie). I really hope that they use them well.

I really hope he does join the show. Ian Buchanan is just the epitome of awesome. I absolutely loved him on Twin Peaks.

No matter what you think, I DO love you.

Did Ian and Lauren work together on B&B?

if they did then he can be the mysterious stranger who she'll be happy about....I didn't follow LK back then...

edited to add: Based on this: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0118011/filmoseries#tt0092325
it doesn't appear that LK and Ian crossed paths...however it appears he was on Days before for about a week during the Cruise of Deception as Lord Sheraton..might play into the story somehow if they bring him back as that character.
