DAYS Casting (Or Recasting?) Role

They should have continued using him as against Nabi, not just for the wedding. He's a Dimera. His life's mission should always be to make someone's life miserable, it's their trade mark (I'm not so sure of EJ though). it would have given him something more interesting to do instead of wasting away along with KM/NO in a stupid s/l.

Too bad it's not Andrew Donovan, who without SORASing would be 27 today.

Agreed. I'm still not sure why Chad isn't more involved in the nabi/wilson story. There's a natural place for him there as nabi's enemy and best friend/business partner to Will and Sonny. The show could have gone forward with Chabby and had them in a good place only to get torn apart when the truth about Gabi came out. By then, maybe we'd know Cam enough to care about his love life and a more balanced Chad/Abby/Cam triangle could form.

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?
Tony and Anna's son?

Which would put Sami engaged to Carrie's half brother. Which would be hilarious.

According to Navell at Buzzworthy Radio....

Casey is NOT going anywhere as Chad.

There was a rumor that Chandler was leaving in Dec but not sure if there's any truth to it.

If there is.... What if it's Will.

Hold on, didn't we first get this "Derek" casting call awhile back and it said that the actor could be caucasion or Hispanic?
Yes.

“DOOL” is seeking an actor for a contract role of Derek who will be in his late 20s, either Caucasian or Hispanic, ruggedly good-looking, confident, sexy, and mysterious. The role shoots starting in April or May and Derek will start airing in June.

I'm a bit confused. DAYS films about four months in advance, so if this actor beings filming in May, then he probably won't appear on screen until September. But the SoapOperaFan website says that "Derek" will begin airing in June, which is only a month away. Did SoapOperaFan get the dates wrong? Or is DAYS going to slot Derek's scenes into already filmed June episodes as soon as the role is cast?
Taping in April would start airing in August. Taping in May would start airing in September, yes.

They don't go back and insert scenes into episodes "already in the can" (aka finished editing).

From some of Casey's Vine and twitter pics we know he's still on Days in the June episodes that were filmed. So maybe Derek isn't a recast of Chad?
Casey would be with the show for another week or so, until his contract expires, so he'll be airing as Chad until at least the end of September. If a new Chad is needed, he would debut in October.

Chandler's 4-year contract is up in December, so not really a rumor. He has the chance to leave if he wants, as many do after their first contracts expire. Being a Daytime Emmy winner, that would give him more clout when signing a new deal in December or deciding to try and sign with another show.

Well, it says the actor needs to be AT LEAST 6' tall. They wouldn't have Will be that tall.
