So okay, wait ... they need to RECAST Chad ... with a new actor who will presumably be on contract ... while BD has been bumped down to recurring and Lucas has no story.

Once again I say, FUCK YOU Tomlin.
Why must everything be compared with Bryan/Lucas?

I guess because he is a legacy character with a logical role in the current storylines as Will's father and Jennifer's brother but he is recurring while peripheral new charcters a lot of viewers care less about are given contracts.Makes no sense.I like Cameron and I don't mind Chad because I am all for young actors acquiring /honing acting skills but if I was given a choice between one or both of them leaving the show and more of a role for Lucas atleast for now when it makes sense with his first grandchild being born,his son shot,and his sister,newly widowed,having problems with a rebellious son,I would choose keeping Bryan on contract.

Considering that commercials and soaps are are entry level "acting"101 positions,I don't expect every actor in soaps to be Marlon Brando or Al Pacino out of the gate.Owens has been on the show about two months or so with the scenes on screen all likely to have been shot during his first days on the set.Given that this is his first acting job I don't see that he is doing so badly that he needs to leave the show.Casey was not all that great when he started.Chandler was lucky to have great material to work with but even after having won the emmy last year,he has had questionable performances as have a lot of actors who have been on the show a lot longer.Owens doesn't bother me half as much as some others with their acting choices and I am willing to give him more than two months to learn a new job before I start calling for the show to get rid of him.

I could care less about the actor. They could write off Cameron tomorrow and I probably wouldn't even notice. He's just that irrelevant.

If they are not going to feature MBE/Kayla,they need more than Daniel to treat the upcoming casualties with Rafe,Will,Gabi,and perhaps the baby given that Lexie is dead. I see Cameron as serving double duty as the other doctor and able to fit in with the younger set when needed regardless of what happens between Abby and Cameron.He will probably be a sounding board when the problems manifest themselves with JJ.I guess I sort of see him as a Roman/Abe type of character,he can be plugged into a storyline to fill plot point without too much WTF.Although the virginity storyline is sort of silly to me,I can see how some girls/young women might find it interesting.I guess I have strong feelings for some characters I like but for the most part I view others as background noise until I find their story interesting.

Which is exactly why he's not vital enough to the canvas to merit going to the trouble of recasting.

At this point he is the male version of Taylor and just needs to leave. :bye:

I would rather see Kayla as the Doctor than Cameron.

The issue with the virginity storyline is that if Cameron and Abby had displayed any sort of Love and passion for each other maybe then I would care.
Their relationship has been dull as dull. Seriously if you are running into so many obstacles that you can't talk to each other about at this stage then give up now.

Abby can give up her virginity to whomever she likes but if you want me to care about it make it a real enjoyable love story
If you really loved him it wouldn't matter if he was a stripper / and the other reasons are all so dull as to why they had tiffs that I can't even remember anything more than how dull they were..

I say have Chad killed off by accident by a Brady so that Stefano will have another valid reason to reignite the classic Di Mera and Brady feud. I need to erase the Colleen and Santo episode from my mind. And right now, Stefano is as meek as a dead pussycat doing nothing but currying favours for his half-assed useless children, EJ and Kristen. Geez. Where is Peter when you need him?

I don't think Owens is terrible, don't get me wrong. I just don't think he's right. I don't think he's what the show needs right now. I don't know why they can't get more people like James Scott and Chandler Massey - hot and so talented.

While I agree, it's hard for me to put him in the same category as them because James and Chandler have more experience. This is Nathan's first acting gig. I wouldn't compare a newbie to someone more experienced. It wouldn't be fair. Even for his first gig, Nathan's doing a pretty good job and they haven't really given him something emotionally heavy yet. Hell, I didn't think Chandler was that great until they gave him something really good and he rocked it. So I'll give Nathan some time to sharpen his skills further and wait for them to give him something emotionally gripping.

Plus, guys like James and Chandler are hard to come by. I'm sure if they were easy to find (and cheap), Days would have no problems in that regard.

If they are recasting the role of Chad DiMera all I have to say is 'Why?' The character has been a dud practically since day one. I see no use for him. Mind you, I see no use for Cameron and yet there he is.

While Casey is a sweet & nice guy & I like his scenes with JS, KM , Terrill Ransom & the Kunitz twins , just have him leave town I don't see a need to re-cast the role .

If this is a Chad recast, I think it's pretty unnecessary as well. It's been 4 years now and the character still hasn't managed to catch on. I think it might be time to just give up. Even with his DiMera connection, there's still nothing really there for Chad. It would be better to write the character off if Deidrick is choosing to leave. Bring back Jeremy Horton as the new, future leading male. Or Max Brady if they want to have someone for Abigail, along with Cameron. Recasting Chad is just stupid. If characters like Philip or Chloe or Bo or, hell, even Melanie aren't important enough to recast, then Chad DiMera sure as hell shouldn't be.

If Chad is being recast, then it's clear that the writers have long-term story plans in place for him. What they've been waiting for, I have no idea. Chad's been lounging around Salem for a year now. At this point in his character's story arc he should have been pulled back into the DiMera web, and exploring that side of his character. But it seems like they got sidetracked (or he was a casualty of the writing change last year, not to mention Molly's exit), and he's been drifting ever since.

As for Casey, he's a good actor. I think he's come a long way from when he first started (not to say he was bad then), and I wish we could've seen him act out some meaty storyline now that he's matured. But the writing has been on the wall. First Revolution, then Glee. In interviews he's been forthright about not having much to do, other than interuppting the Nabi wedding. And as a follower of his on Twitter, I have to say that he seems to be a bit wilder(?) than he used to be, and doesn't really fit into the soap actor mold. But I don't know the guy personally, and there's only so much one can glean from a twitter feed, so I could be way off base.

Bottom line, if it happens, I think it'd be a wise decision for both parties. Casey's a fine actor, but the character can easily be recast. But I just hope the recast isn't left story-less like Casey was.

DAYS Casting (Or Recasting?) Role

DAYS is looking for an experienced actor to play the contract role of "Derek", a 23-26 year old gorgeous Caucasian male who must be AT LEAST 6'0 tall. "Derek" is described as "incredibly charismatic, intelligent, quick witted, and sincere.... When crossed, he can be dangerous." The description suspiciously matches that of Chad DiMera, played by Casey Jon Deidrick since 2009. Deidrick, whose current contract reportedly expires shortly, has recently booked prime-time appearances on GLEE and REVOLUTION.

Maybe its the real Elvis.
No this I could buy. But how do they explain everyone thinking that a at least 10 year older EJ was the real EJ. And if he is not EJ .. who is he?
