Just catching up on this week's episodes, and saw that Renee Jones was finally removed from the cast list (3 weeks after her last appearance)...but who still remains?? Joe Mascolo.

Yeah, you would think Joe Mascolo would have done exit interviews...or at least one if he was fired or retiring for real. That little blurb in SOD didn't seem appropriate.

Wouldn't be suprised if Joe is removed from the credits in August.

He was gone before Renee Jones so he should have been out of the credits before her. Or is his contract up in August? That's the only way that would make sense.

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

Is it possible they may be showing him in any flashbacks and thus have to credit him?

When he was fired in 2008 his last on-screen appearance was in February but his contract was until May and that's when they took his portrait in the DiMera living room down. He came back in August that same year.

In my SOD it says that Stefano will rise from the dead. So at some point he will come back. Also it said that Greg Vaughan will play Eric Brady!

No, flashbacks don't get you credited. You never see Mac Carey or Frances Reid in the credits when they use flashbacks of Tom & Alice.

He is still in the credits because he never left the show. Stefano "returns" to Salem in early fall.

That's the question we've been waiting to see. Will he be removed from the credits before he returns (which means it would be a new contract), or does he stay in the same position in the credits (which means he never left). Only time will tell!!

What if his contract was renewed before his old one expired? They just didn't use him for story reasons because of the writing change. Then I guess we would never find out?

That would mean he never left. If he stays in the same spot, that's what happened.

Similar thing happened with Drake Hogestyn. He was still under contract when they wrote him back in the story as RoboJohn, so that's why he remained in his 1986 seniority position in the credits when John "rose from the dead."

Okay awesome. I wasn't thinking about the order they are listed in being the tell to whether or not he ever actually left. Thanks for bringing that to my attention!

Yes, most of the shows I think just do the alphabetical cast list, but "Days" has always listed the contract cast in order of seniority.

According to James Scott, Joe did leave the show.

To clear up any confusion, this is the information we have. No date is listed for Joe.


Quote:
 
Eileen Davidson's first airdate is October 11th. Blake Berris returns August 27th. Stefano will rise from the dead and Eric Brady will return to Salem in the fall with Greg Vaughan in the role.


And JM said this in May. It refers to the future, but nothing specific and names no sources.
Quote:
 
As for now, Mascolo told SOD, “For all intent and purposes, Stefano is dead.” But sources are reporting that he is already included in future story plans!


There was also an audio interview with James where James mentions Joe cleaning out his dressing room and saying he doesn't think he'll be returning this time.

While he looks to be returning, there is very little concrete information about when he'll return, what he'll be doing, and under what circumstances he was let go. Based on what we've heard, it sounds like MarDar fully intended on him being gone, but TomSell decided to undo it.

I'm not complaining, but were those top three not all removed in 2003?
