Read on for the latest comings and goings casting news from Days of Our Lives:
It looks like Sami's long missing twin brother, Eric, is heading back to Salem. Soap Opera Digest is reporting that auditions have begun to recast the role created by Supernatural star, Jensen Ackles. Ackles portrayed the character from 1997 to 2000. According to the magazine, soap alumnus Greg Vaughan (ex-Lucky, General Hospital; ex-Diego, The Young and the Restless) was among the actors who tested for the part.
Jesse Kristofferson, the real-life son of singer/songwriter Kris Kristofferson, returns as Neil, the guy Will shared a passionate kiss with, on June 19 and 20. "He's a good guy and a good friend of mine," reports Chandler Massey (Will), who was glad to work with Kristofferson, again. So does Will explain his abrupt reaction to their kiss to Neil, this time around? "I guess that's up to interpretation. Personally, I don't think so," says Massey.
Good news for Justin and Adrienne fans. Inside sources reveal that Wally Kurth and Judi Evans will be getting more screen time. The pair will be involved in a meaty storyline with their TV son, Freddie Smith (Sonny), in the upcoming months. In the interim, Kurth returns in June to offer legal aid to a character in need.
