"Ben" could be one of Justin & Adrienne's sons. Justin can sing, and play the guitar. Maybe it's Alexander. Of course if he shows up I'll want Anjelica back. Too bad Jane Elliot is tied up at GH.

They never understand why their princess falls...
For some camoflague britches and a southern boy drawl...

Or why she's riding in the middle of his pickup truck
Blaring Charlie Daniels, yelling "turn it up"
They raised her up a lady, but there's one thing they couldn't avoid
Ladies love Country Boys!

Sabrina sounds like a younger version of General Hospital's Sabrina. Seriously. Ben sounds like a bore to me. It usually ends up being some super lame reason for people to sing. I would chalk this up to summer time casting but summer will be over so I'm not sure how I feel about this. As always I hope there are some type of connections to the canvas and if not these need to be strong actors. Sabrina is probably for JJ.

Oooh, I like this theory! And it fits with the character's description. Justin and Adrienne moved to Texas after leaving Salem in 1991, and "Ben" is described as being "either midwestern or Southern." (Granted, Sonny doesn't have a Southern accent, but maybe Alexander spent a lot of time in the Southern states with his mom Anjelica.)

I hope Ben is gay. A new guy in town who comes between Wilson. I love it!

If Days wants a Sabrina, I would gladly give them GH's.

Could be. And Sabrina is probably his love interest.

I hate Ben already. Also, would it kill them to add some diversity?
I love Ben. I already imagine him as Garret Hedlund's character in "Country Strong" :cloud9:

And yes, I think it would actually kill them to add diversity to the cast. I hate how a majority of the casting calls are for 'Caucasian" actors and then often times the actor they choose is terrible. I think they're limiting their acting pool by not casting for all races.
Couldn't agree more they need to bring on some African American females to the show. I could see Brady or Eric with an AA female or even Chad for that matter if he and Abby don't work out. They need to add some diversity Cam is not cutting it alone, and where is Abe and Theo they are hardly seen at all.
I agree. If these are brand new characters then they could be of any race or ethnic background. Why just limit them to white? And I read that CS is part Japanese and part Spanish and it would be nice if that was also her character's background on the show and it was mention.

THANK YOU! Where are the sistah's!?

I still think Eric's "friend" Neema from the Congo should show up in Salem.
Remember the beautiful black nurse who told EJ that his son with Nicole had died? And not too long ago Marlena had a scene with a beautiful young black woman who I think was her secretary. Both of these actresses would have fitted in beautifully on the show.

I think part of the reason DAYS rarely casts non-Caucasians has something to do with the fact that Salem is supposedly a midwestern town and would be predominantly white versus a more urban environment. I do agree for the need for more diversity, but that coupled with being owned by old white men...lol

Why does Ben sound like a possible recast for Will with a new spin on the character to fit the new actor? There's no way Chandler is sticking around once his contract is up later this year, especially if Casey doesn't renew his contract this month.

I hope this comes out the right way but on a casting call for a gay character don't they often put that in the casting call, or no since some actors are not willing to play gay characters? That is why I always assume none of thees new characters are gay. I really want Sonny's ex to be cast.

Considering Chandler is southern, it wouldn't be too difficult.

Or maybe new characters will help breath new life into existing characters and their storylines. At the very least they need to improve the dating pool in Salem. Almost everyone is related to each other. And if the aren't related, they've probably already banged them. Some fresh meat couldn't hurt. And aren't most of you complaining about the re-hashing of storylines and love triangles, etc...?

Yeah, Salem needs some new blood or else inbreeding will be the new hot storyline. Honestly, I would prefer Days focus on the vets and bring in characters for them but so far the writing for the vets has been horrid. It's best to keep them from that misery and let the younger crowd act like immature idiots.

I'm sure Judith Chapman is available since she's not on contract at Y&R... :whistle:
