This is in the Stuff We Know and Shouldn't Tell You section. That means it may or may not happen.

DAYS is casting a recurring role: Rodney, a 21-28 year old gorgeous African-American or Hispanic male. He is described as "an edgy charismatic bad boy with a heart of gold and a mysterious past. He could be called a bit of a chameleon as he can acclimate to any situation and blend in with any social circles. Rodney's confidence makes him intoxicating to the ladies and intimidating to men."

Can Days give me a young hip black couple?! A couple where the black people actually feel authentically black. (I know that's not pc but its true.)

They'd have to start with "authentically human" and work their way up from there.

I'm glad they specified "gorgeous" actor this time. So tired of all these fugly/normal-looking people getting on tv just because they have some level of acting talent.

"heart of gold and a mysterious past" Translation: the writers are too lazy to give this person a real personality with layers and family connections and an actual history. They're just going to write a generic, middle-of-the-road, edgy-but-not-too-edgy, bland, cardboard cutout with a pretty face/body who can be mixed and matched in insta-pairings at the whim of TPTB.

Key word here is recurring. It's likely just a character to fulfill a role in a story and that's it. Tomlin did alot of this in 2009 (Mia, Baker, etc). If they work out and develop a following, they stay.

SOD published couple of weeks ago in the same section that Days was casting a new young guy and were screen testing the candidates with Camila Banus.

I wonder if this is the same thing since it can be a Hispanic male and Camila is of Hispanic descent.

I'm down for a hot black guy! While I agree with you, what some consider "authentic" can be downright stereotypical :shame: . I'm hoping for the best, though.

I would love a 25-30 year old black female to shake up the current 30 something group. Maybe someone similar to Crystal who was around in 2008, she seemed to be fairly well liked.

I hope they do a good job in this casting. I know they said he could possibly be Hispanic, but Days badly needs young African-American characters. Celeste's son is a good start but they need more. I hope we see a casting call for a young strong sexy African-American woman soon.

I don't mind Tomlin/Whitesell bringing in new characters in the 20-something age range. I do hope this casting doesn't do anything to Cameron's place on the show. I'm really enjoying him so far and don't want to see him go anywhere.

I would love to see a African American female on canvas in that 30s group, like a young Phylicia Rashad. She is sexy, strong and doesn't take crap but oozes grace and dignity. They are so many different ways to show a "strong" woman, she doesn't have to obvious or a borderline bitch, ie the easy route. Lexie has a lot of those qualities, which is why she is one of my favorites and why I'm sad to see her go. If the show is looking to increase the number of black characters on the show, I hope they have at least one who is like that.
