RILEY BODENSTAB RETURNS AS COLE, THE TROUBLE-MAKING TEEN, NEXT WEEK...

Riley Bodenstab returns to "Days" next week as trouble-making teen Cole. This will be his first appearance since January 8.

JASON47'S FROM THE VAULT: THE "DAYS OF OUR LIVES" PROPOSAL...ALICE HORTON

Posted Image

Pictured above: The three faces of Alice Horton...Mary K. Wells, who turned down the role since she was based on the East Coast; Mary Jackson, who played Alice in the first pilot, and Frances Reid, who became the only Alice "Days" fans ever knew.

Here's how Alice Horton was described in Ted Corday's proposal for "Days of Our Lives"...

Tom's wife, ALICE, is still a strikingly handsome woman. It is easy to believe that she turned down the offers of more than one wealthy young man in order to marry Tom.

Alice had the normal American girl's dreams of comfort and affluence when she married Tom Horton. Even then, as a young ball player, he was making more money than the average family doctor. Alice understood that the time and the earnings Tom invested in his medical studies were both investments in the family's future.

The Horton family never missed a meal, or a mortgage payment. Neither did they ever move out of the rambling frame house the young ball player-medical student bought for his bride. The Horton family has never been able to afford the luxuries enjoyed by the wives and children of most of the other doctors Alice knew.

At first, Tom's lack of 'practical' values was the cause of great distress to Alice. She resented his failure to 'get ahead' - but, being Alice, she kept these resentments to herself. Later, as her children began to grow up, and some of them began to complain that other doctors' children had more good things than they had, Alice found herself defending Tom with all her heart and soul.

In her own mind, Tom had become a noble, visionary creature to whom science and academic honors would always mean more than money. She loved and respected him for it - but she was not about to let any of her children grow up to be as 'impractical' as their wonderful father. She was going to give her children 'firmer goals' in life, 'stronger values.'

'Values' mean different things for Tom and Alice. To Tom, values are things moral, spiritual, and intellectual; one exists to give of oneself to life and to all people, strangers and brothers, who share this life. To Alice, values are tangibles measured by the yardsticks of the marker place: life consists of taking all that life and other people can be forced to yield. However, she is not a taker for her own sake: for herself, she is quite content, but for her family she wants money, prestige, comfort, security. Alice would be truly astounded if she ever found out that, deep down, she and Tom want the same things.

Above all things, Alice wants her children to be 'practical.' Tom has never learned how to be 'practical,' and Alice rarely tries to 'keep his feet on the ground' as she used to when they were first married. Tom is forever bringing home impractical and wildly extravagant gifts for his wife and his children and his grandchildren. The fact is, as their daughter MARIE once observed - that, in proportion to his income, Tom has probably spent more money buying gifts for his wife than any doctor in Salem City. Alice kicks up a fuss with each such display of Tom's extravagance - but she is also frank to admit that she would miss them if Tom 'reformed.'

Now, in the third decade of their marriage, Alice is Tom's most ardent defender - against the world beyond the family circle. She feels he is entitled to far more honors, respect, and fame than he has yet received - and, in her own way, she does what she can to make the world look up to her husband,

On their 30th wedding anniversary, one of their children proposed a toast that summed up the story of their lives together. It ran: "Here's to the marriage that never was supposed to happen, never supposed to last, never supposed to bring a moment of happiness to either of its partners - and this child of that marriage will go to his grave swearing that never has there been a happier marriage in the whole cockeyed history of matrimony."

The Hortons have brought five children into the world...

(Coming soon, find out the first descriptions of the Horton kids!)

A TRIBUTE TO THE "DAYS OF OUR LIVES" CAST OF 1965:

39 actors appeared on "Days of Our Lives" in 1965, during its first two months on the air. Through the years, 29 of them have passed away. No information for Geraldine Lawrence, who appeared as Julie's friend Diane in the pilot episode, has ever been found, but she may still be living. To see pictures and read about the lives of all 39 actors from 1965, please visit http://www.jason47.com/days/1965casttribute.html

Of the nine surviving actors, Maree Cheatham (Marie Horton) continues to act and appeared this year on "Sam & Cat" and "Hart of Dixie." John Clarke (Mickey Horton) has been enjoying retirement since he left "Days" in 2004. Dick Colla (Tony Merritt) met his wife, actress Denise Alexander on the set of "Days" in 1966. He quit acting after leaving "Days" and has been a director ever since. Flip Mark (Steve Olson) stopped acting shortly after "Days" and has been a long-time 911 operator in Arizona. Bill Moneymaker (Larry) worked as a tour guide at Universal Studios and, for many years, helped run The Grange Hall in San Luis Obispo, California. Simone Pascal (Carol Proctor) continues to act and is also a painter and collage artist. Anne Whitfield (Barbara Harris) retired from acting after many years and now lives in Washington. Tammy Windsor (Court Stenographer) was a long-time casting agent in Sherman Oaks, California. Ron Quint (Process Server) continues to reside in California.

Greg Jackson is playing Jeremiah. I never said he was Clyde. I specifically mentioned Jeremiah was a recurring actor (and I specifically did not mention the casting call in my press release about Jeremiah), since Clyde is going to be contract. Jeremiah's involved in that storyline, but he's not the one mentioned in the casting call. I don't think anyone picked up on that though. :)

I don't know if they are keeping the Clyde name though or going with another name. So, I thought this cast chart would be a more effective way of saying we are getting a new contract cast member later this month. Sometimes I just have to be more direct!! Have to come up with new ways of announcing stuff. :popcorn:

Could the DA be related to Jenkins the cop?!
(or have the writers just lacked creativity in giving her a last name. lol.)

She's been around since 2008, does she pre-date the Jenkins cop? It's hard to keep track of all the U/5 cops, since we have a big roster of them.

Jason, do you know who is playing Clyde? If so, can you at least tell us if he's been on a soap before?

(It can't hurt to ask! :) )

Interesting, a new contract actor. So am I understanding correctly that he (Clyde) is going to be involved in Jordan's story?

Well 2 just left (CB and BB). 2 additional cast members will be leaving in several months (AS and JS).

I honestly don't think Days' cast is too big, especially compared to the likes of Y&R and GH.

Okay. Let me see if I got this right.

Jeremiah is country boy from the Ozarks. This is a recurring role played by Greg Jackson and he begins Thursday, June 27th.

Clyde, according to the casting call is:
A short term contract role where they are Looking for a "Winter's Bone meets Duck Dynasty" type - a Kris Kristofferson...Nick Nolte Type. He's a serious man from the Ozarks who can charm almost anyone, particularly those who have no idea how lethal he can be. People who know him are scared of him. He is a man who may be without a conscience and who doesn't care about others and his affect on them. He takes what he wants. When cleaned up, he is very handsome. And he also shows up sometime this month? So two Ozark men? Hmmmm.....

I really wish they had gotten Ross back for Eve. It would have been great to see her in scenes with Melissa Reeves again.

Casting call says "short term contract". Not so very usual for "Days" (except for some returns - NB or ED).

Is Eve coming back with her husband LOL?
