DAYS Casting New Role
By SOD • Posted: Jul 18, 2013

The casting calls continue at DAYS. The show is seeking a daytime or prime-time "name actor only" to start shooting in mid-August for the contract role of Seth, who is described as a 45-55 gorgeous male. The specifics read: "All ethnicities. Seth is an outgoing, charismatic extremely handsome man. He is charming and funny but is also opinionated at times, He is very sure of himself which sometimes can be mistaken as arrogance…. The one real chink in his armor is his young son. He is fiercely protective of him. There is some mystery as to their past and he could very well have a darker to his personality when backed into a corner."

"Name actor"? Did Maria Arena Bell start working at Days suddenly?

A known actor. Usually an actor who was once super popular for a role either in primetime or daytime, but has since done nothing and is today therefore only known because of his name.

Hmmm... Sounds like a guy for Hope to me, especially since this comes on the heals of talks with PR "breaking down." But if it is a guy for Hope, again, why not Vargas?

Basically what it sounds like... someone whose name we've heard, whether in soaps, TV or otherwise. Usually people stay within soaps, so for example it could be a leading actor from another soap who was let go or something. I think Mitch's guess is probably a good one - a name actor probably means a love interest for a name actress, ie, Deidre. (Or could be Kristian... but someone within that bracket.)

Someone with name recognition. I'm hoping this is someone for Hope. I would be happy if it was for Kayla too but that seems less likely since it's a contract role. Seems a bit young for Marlena unless they're doing another older woman/younger man pairing. Please no more men for Jen or Kristen.

I hope it's not for Hope. That needs to be Vargas' role, damn it! :D

i'd LOVE to see Hope & Vargas together. i'm not sure why TPTB isn't going that route, especially since they know people would love the pairing. that said, if TPTB is just gonna have Vargas disappear, then i'm all for someone else. and this guy has a young son. maybe he goes to the same school as Ciara & she befriends him and it's through Ciara that Hope meets him.

Very intrigued by this role and pleasantly surprised. Too many single (or basically single) women that could fit this age range. I really want them to bring in Robert Newman for Marlena.

It's not young for Marlena imo - she does look very young. I mean, Charles Shaughnessy for example is 8 years younger than her, yet he looks older on screen. Drake is younger than Deidre and looks older onscreen.

I think with the "name actor", that narrows down who it could be for. Also, I think it's pretty safe to say it would be a PR or Drake replacement. Name actors come with name actor salaries!

I'd much rather they create a role with a story & THEN try to cast the role with a name actor than hire a name actor just to have the name actor & then try to create a role & story (often forcing the actor/character into existing story) just for the sake of having that actor.

That's my first choice but it doesn't look like it's happening.

From the casting call, it sounds like they do have a story...
