Instead of hiring new characters, why don't they write for the people on set?

I own you bitch.

I think it's funny that all of the new roles are always 'gorgeous'.

I know, right? Can't we get an average looking, chubbier 20-something black woman up in here? Mostly so I can go audition. :whistle:

I'm pretty sure from the network perspective Days is overly-diverse. You have homosexuals and Latinos (helpfully grouped into the same story so you can skip them all if you want). There are a couple Black people floating around. Heck, there's probably as much diversity on Days as there is on NBC more generally (excluding their reality shows).

I'm looking forward to new characters, characters that the writers won't destroy because they hate them (see: John Black). I'm also looking forward to people with hearts of gold because they get boring really fast, and they usually portend the entrance of someone more entertaining who has a heart of, um, not gold.
I don't think they consider Latino as diverse. Which is insane.

i don't think that 1 latino and 1 black on contract or recurring can be called diverse. and using actors who's races are harder to identify doesn't work either. its insulting. they can't write for the Caucasians on the show. Maybe they shouldn't be concerned with race age or gender just good writing storytelling.

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

I wouldn't mind that at all.
I would love to have Angelica back, and I think they should cast Alexander Kiriakis.

Think about it. Justin and Adrienne have raised him, and maybe he has mixed feelings about Adrienne having stepped in to be his mother, and he wishes he knew his biological mother. Angelica Deveraux comes to town and wants to know him. He wants to know her too. That would make things tough on Adrienne and on Justin too.

Angelica never did really like Adrienne. What started out as a fun affair with Justin became more for her, but not for him. Once he met Adrienne that was it for him. Angelica didn't like that, especially after Harper went crazy, and a married Justin and Adrienne were having problems. At that point, she had hopes that Justin would turn to her, but he never did. I think the last thing she said to baby Alexander was to please not call Adrienne mommy.

Not only that, but I always think she'd have something to say to Jennifer. Angelica raised Jack from the time he was a boy...maybe 9 years old. She loved Jack. So I wonder how she'd react to find out how quickly Jennifer moved on to Daniel after Jack's death. She might also feel connected to Jack's son, who's probably a lot like him.

She has all kinds of connections to the current cast.

The guitar-playing country boy sounds like Woody from the early 80s. Are they going to have music on the show again? Where would he play?
The coffee house of course! Maybe some of Sonny's new ideas for the business is to add a stage and to have regular performers - like Central Perk on Friends.
Thanks...now I have "Smelly cat" stuck in my head.

What you've described is amazing. JJ could be involved because he could finally have a "grandmother" who loved and missed his father and he seems to need that.

There's so much potential storyline here.

As much as I'd Iove Alex back, the casting call doesn't seem like to be him. The age of 20-25 seems way too low for Alex since that is already the age of Sonny and Alex is supposed to be older than him.

Hard to tell with these casting calls. Is this in addition to that tall guy that sounds like a Chad recast? Or was that dropped and these are different ones? Some people say this guy sounds like Will but Chandler's contract isn't even up until December so I doubt that one. And I am not sure how Will is southern. I hope this guy is somebody to come between Will and Sonny if the characters stay as is right now. But I'd find it super unrealistic for any guy that age to fall for Will with him tied down to a baby that is a result of him sleeping with his ex girlfriend when he was already out. I hope since Brian didn't last long it may be somebody that makes Sonny reconsider being tied down so young in his life to to a child. They do have to start thinking ahead to what if CM doesn't re-sign. Even without that, Will and Sonny can't continue for months being a happy couple together. The has backburner written all over it. I like Will and Sonny but I fear them becoming way too dry and boring coming up with not much story potential since there is no custody battle.

There are way too man straight guys and not enough girls. Chad, Cameron, JJ, Nick. And there is only Abby and Gabby for the girls. Then again unsure what age group Jen Lill's character fits.

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
I grew up in a midwestern town and it was way more diverse than Days XD Not only black people but *gasp* Asians and Latinos (oh my!).
i did too but it was 98.5% white, lol. Honestly I don't care about how "realistic" it is though, I greatly loved the diversity on Passions. It added a lot to the show. But really it showed that no matter the outer differences, everyone was the same and that's how JER wrote them. Although admittedly I couldn't help but laugh every time Rebecca referred to Theresa as "taco-sita" (so wrong but also too funny; granted i'm not sure that would transfer outside of Passions).

Days needs to better integrate everyone. I'm still upset they wasted Lexie like they did.
God, I hated how Lexie was never allowed to move on from boring, old Abe because they were both black and Days' token black couple.
