I give him a year before he goes crawling back to DAYS. NONE of these YOUNG actors have staying power yet the VETS that do are treated like crap. Shame on DAYS. I won’t miss him, he is a horrible actor.

(9) ea says:

I’ll really miss his sharp smart ass lines. :D Too bad they didn’t make him more with the whole DiMera story. So now Cameron gets Abigail, haha. But he’s best off since they were ultimately giving him less to do. It’s a tough game out there but hope he makes it.

And another thing, there are always some that are all anti-young actor. Do we want Days, The Nursing Home Years? :P

:( : ( : ( This is sad. I am really about over it. What is happening to the guys on Days ?????? I liked Chad !!!!! First Bo leaves, don’t know whats going on with John . Stefano lleft last Friday for a vacation and Now Chad is lleaving ?????

Instead we get idiots like J J and his really dumb friend Roary ??? I just don’t get it and yet Days gets favorite show award ????

I think Days needs another reboot with new writers, and they still need to get rid of sluty trampy crazy Kristen. I wonder if thats why Stefano left. They could also really use a spinoff show with all the characters they have now. I am also wondering whats going on with sydney and kaylas son joey !!!!! UGH. I almost want to quit watching Days.

(11) DiMera fan says:

He seemed redeemed after the wedding interruptus. Then a stylish haircut. Hia lithe body was a plus. Yeah, I’m with Ea, tired of the nursing home years on DOOL (exception, the venerable Joseph Mascolo aka Stefano, the reason I watch). Good luck to you Casey.

I really like the character of Chad. Unfortunately he is missing a story line.

June 22, 2013 at 10:36 pm
(13) mp says:

raymone i agree i love Chad will he expose Gabi what she did to his relationship Melanie what she did to her last year when are we going to see him expose her for that

June 23, 2013 at 7:24 pm
(14) DaOnenOnlyDeb says:

Wellllll “Here’s another fine mess you’ve gotten us into.” I wish ABIGAIL will go with CHAD. He’s off to a great future and ABIGAIL matches him in performance. :( JJ and Roary need to go to jail along with Sami. WoooYaaaaa Eric & Kristen gettin’ it on with NICOLE at an open door. YEaaaaaa Now Nicole can get with Brady and he can forget Kristen. Forget her anyway….she can go away with JOHN and LEAVE THE SHOW. I’m SO sick of that terrible storyline. MARLENA AND ROMAN would make a great super couple to last. KATE can just fall off the edge of the earth as far as I’m concerned…she can go with Vargas!! Ah Hem Stephano isn’t interested in working on DOOL anymore so bye bye bye. You know, this isn’t Days of OUR Lives anymore,….it’s the “LAME OF THE FUTURE”. I’ve taken to watching the other ones with STORYLINES.

June 24, 2013 at 8:13 pm
(15) Barb says:

Just like with Chandler…I wish him well.
I can see them both, so young, .. wanting to fly away and see if there is anything else for them.
But… it’s a matter of luck.

Casey, you’ll definitely be missed. I hope to see you all over the place on evening TV – who knows … maybe even a show of your own!! CHEERS!

So sorry to see chad leaving! And Will too. I wish they would have gotten rid of JJ

(18) Margaret says:

Hate to see him go, very good actor and sexy for a young man.

June 25, 2013 at 1:59 am
(19) Teresa says:

This is crazy! I like Will & Chad! Get rid of Kristin please! Can’t stand her on the show! And JJ is a horrible actor, the story is so stupid!
I fast forward or mute when he is on! They need better writers now! The only week that was decent was sweeps & then back to long drawn out ridiculous crap! I’ve watched for over 20 yrs but I’m about to give up & say good-bye!

June 25, 2013 at 2:28 am
(20) Gina Busateri says:


I really am shocked your leaving Days. I had no idea. I love how Chad has grown since you’ve first arrived. In looking back, the scenes when you first discovered you were Stephano’s son, were shocking, and you eventually got your head around it. Then became your own strong person.
I liked how you held yourself distant from him. Then eventually joined the family. Yet you never lost your strong self. I was looking forward to a story line with Chad and Abigail. Best of luck on your new endeavors.

June 25, 2013 at 2:16 pm
(21) Irene says:

I cannot stand JJ. He is a terrible actor. Who dresses Jennifer? Does she pick out her own clothes or does wardrobe? Sometimes she looks like a frump and sometimes she dresses to young. I have been disgusted with days for some time. How did it win best daytime drama when the writing team did not get a nomination.

I hope Kristen, JJ, Abigail and Cameron all leave. I think Nicole was overlooked for best actress. My favorites now are: Sami, EJ, Lucas, Nicole, Stephano and Victor. It used to be John and Marlena years ago in addition to Bo and Hope. No more.

June 25, 2013 at 4:58 pm
(22) Rhonda says:

This is so sad there was so much more to tell between him and Abigail there was great story lines for them as a couple it would be nice to see a Demira have a happy ending and another super couple that the writers won’t split I really don’t think Chad wants to go

Sorry to see you go..Your a fine actor and can see a bright future for you. Good luck.

June 26, 2013 at 1:47 pm
(26) Francesca says:

I wish Abigail would leave the show…and Jennifer….Kristen adds spice albeit she is as evil as Lucifer. She says to this “mystery” doctor that she drugged and then seduced Eric…let’s call it what it is——-RAPE. ….very disappointing if she gets away with it…what kind of message are you sending your audience? I also do not see her as a femme fatale…too old …her neck gives her age away…she should go back to Y&R and play the role of the “good girl” in which I am used to watching.
John Black should also make an exit…tired of his nondescript face with all its weid expressions..yuk!! I love Brady, but he needs to be given a role which exudes strength and manliness instead of this forlorn Romeo who constantly mopes around like a damsel in distress…just saying…ciao.

June 27, 2013 at 5:15 pm
(27) Jennifer says:

I will miss having Chad on the show. Me i honestly can say i love him and the story line with him and Abbigal. I hope u the best Casey. Hope all your dreams some true and you make it big out there.

(28) Lori says:

Before he departs maybe they can give him a decent haircut. Worst hair ever. J.J. really has to go or at least the actor playing him.

(29) DaOnenOnlyDeb says:

I’ve gotten more and more disillusioned as time goes by. Since November the storylines are immature, immoral and RIDICULOUS. SOME people still have lives to live, let’s see, that’d be Victor and Maggie. um-m Oh, where’s Maxine? Miss her at the nurses station last week. There is NO plot anymore, no ADULTS living their lives, just the CHARACTER ASSASSINATIONS. Nobody seems to be the character the character was meant to be on Days Of Our Lives. It’s not the LAME LEADING THE LAME. From one day to the next, it’s just stupidity at its’ worst. Writing a soap is an art…..these guys need some training and some REAL LIFE LESSONS in order to write something with some DEPTH.

Casey is leaving the dumb & dumber behind. GO FOR IT CASEY. As for the rest, ho-hum.

July 1, 2013 at 9:46 pm
(31) Connie says:

Sure hope Casey gets a new hair do. Between his and Johns I don’t know who’s is the worse.. They have given Casey such stupid story
lines I don’t blame him for leaving

(32) susan foster says:

JJ is such a sorry little boy. He is played beautifully. He lost his father and sees his mom moving on. That hurts him and he acts out. This is TRUE to life. If I were his mom, I would put him in the hands of Doug and Julie who did a great job with Hope. Jennifer is too easily swayed by JJ throwing Jack in her face at every confrontation. Been there, done that, and came out the other side. I get his actions (although they are coming fast and furious) but it is time he accepted the fact that daddy is gone. Maybe Dr. Marlena could council him. It is unfortunate that the writers don’t give him any redeeming qualities. He could be a disenfranchized teen, but even they have some good thoughts and actions. Jen and Dan should present a united front to JJ instead of letting him rule and ruin their relationship. He might take action but if they are together, JJ will see that every action has a reaction. He will see that no matter how ‘bad’ he is, they are united in trying to help him. Just a thought…..s

July 8, 2013 at 9:43 pm
(33) Anne says:

Aw-Chad was just beginning to come into his own, as far as I was concerned. Really beginning to like him. Really starting to hate his goofy looking “semi-mohawk” Well, good luck to him, and maybe he will be back one day. EJ is losing a brother…and a friend.

July 12, 2013 at 10:27 am
(34) Julie says:

I’ve watched DOOL for more than 30 yrs. Love all the characters, sad to see Chad go but wish him all the best! Don’t want Will to leave, him and Sonny work well together… Nicole, Sami, Kate, Victor, Brady, EJ and Rafe are still worth watching! Kristen brings excitement to her role, like her better than Ashley Abbott on y n r ! I wish the greatest soap many more years!

July 15, 2013 at 9:35 pm
(35) Diane B says:

Casey Jon Deidrick and Chandler Massey are leaving Days..But what about the characters they play? Will they be replaced or are Chad and Will leaving Salem?

Ridiculous story there. What happened after? Good luck!

(39) DaOnenOnlyDeb says:

How is this going to play out on the show? Is he going to go and look for Melanie? Gee, I thought he and Abigail were working towards being an item. Guess she’ll stay a virgin forever. Haha Brady and Nicole would make more sense. Kristen is out of Bradys’ league and Bradys’ character isn’t stable. He should just take some time out and go on vacation with Daniel to Hawaii…at least we’d see some different scenery. HaHa

He hasn’t really had a storyline. I would like to see several vets with more of a storyline and not much interested in the teens, etc… Would love for Maggie, Victor, Marlena, Hope, etc… to have more storyline action.

July 30, 2013 at 2:19 am
(41) DaOnenOnlyDeb says:

Say, have you forgotten Chad was in love with Melanie until she gave him the heave ho and went to visit her mom? Yes, he made a mistake, but she must not have relly loved him ‘cos she couldn’t forgive him. Now Chads’ health may be an issue and we’re gonna loose him….. to death? You know what? We had ONE day last week where ALL of the ADULTS on the show actually were seen and had script. Whoo Hoo Allbeit for Sami to run the show….everything seems to be connected to her….she’s the real Emmy winner!

Good luck Casey. You will be missed. Loved the humor & sarcasm you brought to Chad.

I have been watching Days since the sixties when I would visit my mom in the hospital on my lunch hour. I can remember when I wouldnt miss a show. If I couldn’t get home I had a radio that picked up TV stations so I could listen on my lunch hour. The characters were like neighbors and friends but its not that way now. I just start to get interested in a character and puff they are gone. Is it because the actors once established start demanding more money so they just write them (or kill them) off the show. I would be happy to settle for replacements just to keep the story line going but the writers (or perhaps its the way the actors contracts are written) don’t allow that to happen. Everyone excepted Bo’s replacement and the storyline continued. Sad that the show has become do shallow because I’ll never forget Kayla and Patch dancing to “Lady in Red” or Bo and Hope getting married, but if I miss a show now “oh well.”

Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone
and tested to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she
can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

NOOOOOO….man I really REALLY wanted him and Abigail to end up together….I am really sad :( :(

I’m so slow I just found out he was for real leaving. I don’t tweet…guess will start. I’m so sad to see him go. Losing all the good young actors.
