Wow. Could Casey have sounded any less excited about his storyline? Lol. I don't really blame him though, as much as I don't like the character of Chad, these teen triangle is such a waste. And it's really a shame, because a firecracker like Kate Mansi should have an exciting storyline!

Great interview. Not only is he an xlnt actor but a very honest funny guy. Bad ass Sami and EJ are peas in a pod, really belong and deserve each other. Sounds like good stuff coming up.
Thanks -good job. Seems like he enjoys being an Ejami.hope we get more Chad but please soap gods let Abby get laid and shut up.

Methinks James did his own research before this interview. He seemed very familiar and comfortable with some of the EJ talk... almost like he'd heard it somewhere before.

They sound like they aren't so happy about their storylines and I've long since realised that for every glee these actors seem to show over scripts, the opposite applies. JS is not happy with what they've done to the character of EJ Dimera. I don't blame him. He's gone from dynamic to plain boring in a year and it looks like it's getting worse. All he ever does is hold Sami's hand while she plays the same bull in a china shop character. There's no growth to speak of and I'm not talking about making him good or less grey or villain. The man does NOTHING! What a disappoint for all that potential to be squandered in such a pathetic way.

And I got the complete opposite vibe.

And the ones there said it was the most enthusiastic they had ever seen him.

I will give you it sounds like CD isn't too thrilled at the moment.

Personally, I'm GLAD Casey is on the backburner. He sucks. But that also means that Kate Mansi is stuck in some kind of stupid virginity Cameron/Chad merry go round from Hell and that makes me sad.

Love that JS lets it be known he doesn't like playing a pussy. No one else does either lol

I agree on CD, but I don't get how these comments from JS can be interpreted as him being unhappy with his storyline...

"Iím excited about whatís coming up. The stuff that I have with Alison Sweeney is wonderful. Iím really enjoying that. And I feel like that the stories that Iím about to go and tape...Iíll tell you what I love. The number one reason that I love them is that Sami is back to being trouble. You know what I mean? Remember when Sami was just a hot mess of trouble? Okay. Sheís back."

"I have very wonderful stuff with Alison."

"I think that what Iíve been working on in the last couple of months, and whatís coming up is just great soap opera. Itís really good. Itís grounded, but itís fun. If I was watching the show, itís a show that I would watch."

"Iím reading shows now, and have been reading shows for the last couple of months that are just good. Theyíre fun. They donít take themselves too seriously. They deal well with really compelling stuff. Theyíre well written, well constructed. Theyíre just good. I hope I donít regret saying this, but itís the best stuff that Iíve read in a good couple of years. Easily."

He sounds excited to me.

I don't get the feeling that he hates what he's doing now, just that he would like Ej to go back to being a bit more on the dark side and that's consistent with what he's said about how much he prefers playing the darker side of the character.

Given what KA, DH, LK and others have said, frankly all these actors have always gushed so much about their scripts and stuff that you'd think they were all getting Emmy worthy material constantly. Nowadays, I tend to disregard what they say the majority of the time anyway as what they like might not always be what I like....

Yeah - it's generally a pretty good bet that depending on the actor, if they are gushing about what they are doing I'm generally not going to be as thrilled as they are. And it has nothing to do with who I ship or don't ship - I have some pretty bitter memories of KA and PR pimping the hell out of what ended up being the summer of 2011 as they were filming it - and it was gawd awful, IMO.

I notice you didn't include the parts of the interview where he talks about the character of ej and how he likes him when he's strong and not changing for love... When he,s not being Everett. And when asked if his current character writing is going to change any time soon he says "god I hope so". Maybe he just wants a rest from all that happy excited ness????

My take is that whilst he likes working with as and potentially the upcoming storylines he,s not really that happy with the way ej is being written at the moment.

Well, what have you been doing the last few months?
Casey: I feel like I've been in the damn coffee shop. Literally, every single scene is in the coffee shop.
I literally laughed out LOUD at this!

Fantastic interview. Thanks! ;-)

It does not make a lick of sense for Chad to be on the backburner 3 months out. In this whole baby story, he's the one who knows all the secrets, he's the one with the confidentiality contract with Nick. Sonny knows what he knows, but there's no conflict with his telling the truth about Gabi and every reason to do so except for Chad's sake, so why is Chad toodling around the coffee shop stuck in a lame triangle going 'round and 'round in circles? (Love that description... it's so apt.) I still think that Abigail and Chad could have been a fantastic pairing if they had gone the Romeo & Juliet route... the good girl/bad boy story is so iconic, and they really do look good together. Instead we have yet another triangle, this one ridiculously revolving around Abigail's virginity. I hope CD is just being a brat in this interview.

I didn't include those quotes because the part of the post I was responding to was the comment about JS not liking his storyline. The comment surprised me because I thought it was pretty obvious from the interview that JS was pretty excited about his upcoming storyline.

Regarding his feelings about the writing for EJ, it seems pretty clear that he was tired of the non-stop Everettness of the last four months and, in general, doesn't like it when EJ has to change for love. He also seems to say that's NOT what we're going to get in the near future because of Ejami's "turning point in their relationship" converstion. Based on the spoilers, I assume that's going to be Ejami plotting together how to get rid of Nick. So we should continue to see Everett with Sami, but EJ with Nick, Gabi, Rafe, etc. Which is how it should be IMO.
