Maybe Stefano is trying to "gaslight" the town? Maybe he wants to commit a series of crimes and uses the look-alikes to perpetrate the crimes and cast suspicion on the people's he's copying? Let's look at the list:

Nick - criminal history
Kristen - criminal history
Theresa - criminal history
Daniel - massive douchebag with serious ethical issues.

Are these lookalikes going to do anything? Because my first thought is cost-cutting- find a similar looking person, film from the right angle...you could conceivably film scenes with the main characters without bringing in the actors for the day.

It'd be silly, but cheap.

I think they are dusting off the old "Laura Horton had mental issues, now her daughter has them" storyline. Most of these lookalikes have relationships with Jennifer and the show has remained Jennifer-focused ever since Jack was sent to his (fourth?) demise. Someone (JJ? JT? Anne?) is mad at Miss Horton and wants her to question her sanity. We will have to wait and see who decides to paint her office with hallucinogenic fumes.

These look-a-likes should ALL be because of a massive scheme of Stefano's (or possibly a risen from the dead Andre's) is coming into fruitition, and nothing else.

I don't like that these casting calls will probably wind up just being something like Jennifer thinking she's seeing Daniel & Theresa kissing on the Horton Town Square, then going up to confront them, only to realize they're not them. That's just so lame.

Also, what backs up this stance is that they've already long ago filmed with the Kristen and Nick look-a-likes, which means those look-a-likes have nothing to do with these ones. Which is just boring.
I think you nailed it. It's nothing related to a storyline per say.

Unless they're stunt doubles (which judging by the casting call they're not) i wouldn't have thought doubles were necessary. Surely the show can just have the actual actors playing their own lookalikes. Is the budget that low that they can't superimpose images? Maybe they should invest in an iPhone.

They wouldn't necessarily use all the doubles at once. Given that a SalemDay lasts anywhere from 4 to 12 episodes, anything is possible. Besides, someone can't go delusional overnight. A week in Salem can span 20-30 episodes, especially during sweeps, which generally end up being 2-3 extra-long SalemDays.

Plus, they may have filmed plenty of ED scenes to drop in for weeks. That's what they did with Molly and PR.

I would love to see it all be part of a Stefano plot, but I don't get the impression that this current regime wants a return to the Years of Dr Rolf, with implanted memories and diabolical (and ultimately nonsensical) plots involving dopplegangers. Stefano has transitioned from criminal kingpin to maniacal Marlena obssessive to grandfatherly to aging horny businessman.

In what world does Shawn Christian's hair count as "longish"?

Hmmm...maybe the soap gods are telling Days that one Daniel Jonas is too much already? Or maybe they are just saying good, looking handsome 40-something actors generally don't sport awful hair?

They should just say hair that looks like it's never been washed.
