A photo of an autographed script is making the rounds this weekend. Someone noticed that Billy Flynn is one of the signatures on the script. Flynn's signature appears just above writer Christopher Whitesell's name on the script. What character Flynn will be playing is not being announced yet, so stay tuned....

UPDATE: A LITTLE MORE INFO ON BILLY FLYNN...

Thanks to his LinkedIn profile, here's a little more information about Billy Flynn (who didn't start acting until 2013). Flynn received a finance degree from St. Cloud State University (Minnesota) in 2007. Up until recently, he had been working as a financial analyst at Warner Bros. Studios. He states this on his LinkedIn profile: "I would like to work my way up the corporate ladder at Warner Bros where someday I will be on the creative side of making films. I would also like to continue writing and turn one of my many ideas into a film." On a modeling website, Flynn lists his age as 29.

Kinda weird he signed a script that he isn't even a part of, but maybe others did too. I see Liam on there so this guy obviously hadn't debuted at the time. I can't make out the date but it looks like it says April. He doesn't look like Chad to me at all, but I'm really fine with the character getting a total makeover. He kinda looks like a Shawn-Douglas to me, but he's too young.

Well its probably Chad. I really dont understand the need for that character. I doubt Mansi is staying when her contract is up this year.

Do we know who this guy is? Like any prior credits? I am so intrigued to see who James Scott referred to as one of the best actors (nuChad.)

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm4334664/ It could be another great actor like Casey Moss, but they have ruined JJ in my opinion by taking his edge away. True O'brien is awful as well.

According to Imdb this guy only has 3 prior acting credits. I hope he's good, whoever he is.

When you google "Billy Flynn, Days of Our Lives", you get a picture of Bill Hayes. Bill played a character named Billy Flynn a few years back. I love it when stuff like that happens!

Thanks. I was literally too lazy to go to imdb. Sad.

Yeah Days casting is super hit or miss. They still hit a home run with Casey Moss, but you're right about them making JJ dull and potentially permanently ruining the character. I also don't get the Paige thing. They could have casted Denyse Tontz from All My Children for the same role and it would have fit perfectly with the Eve character (assuming she ends up being Eve's daughter.) They have shown they are willing to dip into the Prospect Park well with KDP and Robert Scott Wilson so how did they not go after Tontz for this role?

So did Rob Wilson, and he wasn't with the show when this script taped last year.

Over at Strange and Beautiful (EJabby fan board) we've been speculating that this is the new Chad. Even before his autograph showed up on this script, his social media accounts made it seem like he had joined Days (he's following everybody). Someone commented on one of his instagram photos a few months ago that they were looking forward to seeing him on Days. http://instagram.com/p/lF6nqrEKIm/

Perhaps Billy Flynn is playing a SORASed JT? (One of my dream storylines is for JT to move in with Hope and become a rookie police officer.)

Or maybe he's playing Andrew Donovan? It'd make sense for Andrew to arrive in Salem now that Theresa and Eve are both in town. (My storyline suggestion: Andrew is an ISA agent, and he comes to Salem to inform Hope that Bo is missing in action and presumed dead. Then Andrew stays in Salem to emotionally support Hope and Caroline, and Andrew helps Caroline run the Brady Pub.)

If this actor is playing Chad, I'll be a little disappointed. I think the Ejabby reveal would have more emotional impact if Chad were played by Casey Deidrick, since Deidrick's Chad has an established on-screen history with EJ and Abby.

He looks a lot different in the pictures on his instagram. I could see him being Chad now.

Was the autographed script a drawing prize or fund raising item?

The confusion when googling is that "Billy Flynn" is the name of a CHARACTER in the musical "Chicago" -- which several Days actors have appeared in, at times, in various theaters.

The specific Billy Flynn here is the name of an actor.
He has been discussed online in the past week -
and I was going to post about this --

(edit to clarify that I didn't want to violate the "scoop" that Strange and Beautiful has ...
but now that Jason47 has spoken .. I'll reply here
).

His twitter account: (spelled as if his name is "Billy M Flynn" but with no spaces)
https://twitter.com/billymflynn

His instagram account: (spelled as "in like Billy Flynn" with no spaces)
http://instagram.com/inlikebillyflynn

He's been discussed because someone online noticed recently ... that
he posted on March 3rd on instagram that he's on Days:

Here is the link
http://instagram.com/p/lF6nqrEKIm/

(scroll down the instagram comments to see it):

The post is that he was on Hawaii Five-O --
but then it says further down ...

from: digitalhammer
to: @inlikebillyflynn
Billy, I honestly cannot wait to watch this episode and every single episode of "Days" when you're on it. Congrats buddy. Hope to see you next time you're back in Minneapolis.

reply from: inlikebillyflynn
to: @digitalhammer
thanks buddy. I'll be home in two weeks. Let's get together.

-----
Edit to add: - this was noticed because he is following or is being followed by other Days cast members -- a Days fan at Strange&Beautiful noticed this ... and then dug further, and found the instagram post.

--- edit to update: Original instagram has recently been deleted.

Brilliant idea. She's very talented.

Edit to add: she's been working on her music career:
