Days' Freddie Smith Hoping Will and Sonny Eventually Marry

By November 29, 2013

Follow me on:

freddie smithDays of Our Lives is getting set to debut a new Will -- actor Guy Wilson -- in January. Once the show does, Freddie Smith (Sonny) hopes things move forward in the Wilson love story.

"I really want to take it to the next step," says Smith. "That's where we're all hoping that it heads."

As in seeing the two characters eventually get married?

"Yeah. They're living together, and they love each other," contends Smith. "I really hope the story does go in that direction; that we get married and have a same sex marriage."

Smith believes viewers would accept the story turn.

"Absolutely," says Smith. "We've been getting more and more accepted."

And Smith isn't worried about fans embracing the new Will.

"Guy Wilson is a phenomenal actor and a really great person," notes Smith, who's been working with him for a few months. "He's bringing something new to the character; his own little flavor. He's put his own little twist on [who Will] is. The character is getting older and evolving."

(1) Lee says:

Guy may be putting his own spin on Will. But he won’t be Will. His Transphobic tweets and his hanging and favoring known homophobes. He hasn’t a clue. Sad because this love story should be done with two actors who believe and understand the LGBT community. I like Will just as he is. Sadly I wish they would just finish the story before it’s ruined.

(2) Brittany says:

I absolutely believe that guy wilson will do a good job and even though I know he isn’t chandler and I will miss him like crazy I am still willing to give him a chance and freddie is still on there so why are people being hard on the new will

November 28, 2013 at 2:52 pm
(3) isabelle says:

Lee, I so much agree with you , the guy isnt really getting many fans, a lot of Cheddie fans wont be watching in January, he tweets bad coments , and he favourites awful stuff,he should be an example like Chandler and Freddie were, hes not , he hasnt got a clue about what being gay means, he doesnt know anything about the gay comunity, there s no way, he will be Chandler no way at all!!!!!

November 28, 2013 at 3:55 pm
(4) Vicky says:

I am a huge WilSon fan and I am so grateful that their story will continue! Chandler will be missed, but I’m happy that the show found someone talented to take on the role! I’m very confident that Guy will do a great job and that he and Freddie will do the story justice! Those few that choose not to tune in will be missing out!

(5) Jedd says:

What an absolute load of garbage. Freddie using the same word he used for Chandler to describe this unknown actor to the majority of the demographic who will watch if they can stomach next year with GW and fans fool for it hook, line and sinker. Amazing the amount of promotion he is doing to “sell” this guy. Of course Chan and Freddie didn’t need to sell each other – all natural and all real to us. And if wedding scenes have been filmed which so many were led to believe up to a month ago, why would Freddie be saying he “hopes things” will lead to marriage? So what really has been filmed or did the spoilers he released were not supposed to be at the Addicts event? I mean Freddie and Chandler were flat out lied to by Corday – NO WEDDING and of course Corday said NO RECAST either. They think we are idiots and don’t know the skeletons in their closet rest assured NBC fans know what you are trying to hide and Freddie will not become your next victim!

November 28, 2013 at 4:24 pm
(6) K says:

I hope not, I really wanted Chandler to be in the role. Especially not so quickly after the role was recast. And I really wish they would stop casting people in their 30s or close to 30 to play people in their late teens and early twenties, like Will is

November 28, 2013 at 4:41 pm
(7) kay says:

I am a WilSon supporter and am glad that their love story will continue. I have wanted Will and Sonny to get engaged and eventually get married for awhile now. I just wish it could have been with Chandler as Will. However that did not happen and now we will see a different actor in the role. But I trust Freddie and know that he believes in the storyline and if he feels Guy Wilson is doing a great job then I will give him the benefit of the doubt. Some of these “fans” are only following the actors and if their favorite actor leaves then those fans threaten to stop watching. I admired and loved Chandler too but he has moved on and someone else is filling the role. We need to be accepting of the change. Don’t insult the new actor must because he is not the original. Guy deserves a chance to show us his take on the role of Will.

November 28, 2013 at 5:01 pm
(8) isabelle says:

Dont insult the new actor? has anybody read what he s tweeting? what he has tweeted and what kind of tweet he favourites, i think you should all open your eyes, an homophobic , misogynist, racist jerk like that, has no right at all, to become WILL HORTON , an d hpw the hell do you

November 28, 2013 at 5:02 pm
(9) kay says:

I really hope it happens. I support the WilSon storyline and want to see an engagement/wedding happen in the near future.

November 28, 2013 at 5:40 pm
(10) Alex says:

As much as will miss Chandler when he goes off air. I cannot wait to see what Guy will bring to the role. And I will always support the Wilson story line. I also hope that the engagement and wedding happens in the future.

(11) Alex says:

As much as I will miss Chandler when he goes off air. I cannot wait to see what Guy will bring to the role. And I will always support the Wilson story line. I also hope that the engagement and wedding happens in the future.

(12) Ashley says:

I would love to see WilSon get married! <3

November 28, 2013 at 6:15 pm
(13) TJohnson says:

Looking forward to GW as Will. I just hope the writers can create worthy scenes for Will and Sonny, including a beautiful wedding..

November 28, 2013 at 7:14 pm
(14) JC says:

I support Wilson and that includes Guy Wilson, who will be playing Will Horton. It’s the same two or three bitter people that can’t let a misunderstand go. Guy Wilson apologized, so move on. If you stop watching Days because of Guy, then good riddance. The rest of us won’t have to watch you complain about the same thing over and over and over again. Peace!

November 28, 2013 at 7:31 pm
(15) Laurence H says:

Okay, seriously? This kind of melodramatic outrage over the smallest of comments is flat out ridiculous. He made the mistake of saying the word “tranny” in one of his tweets, which was a misunderstanding some of us GAY people have also done before. He apologized for it over and over again and if that isn’t enough for you, then that’s when it becomes YOUR problem and not his. And he didn’t even say it in a derogatory or insulting way. And as for the tweets he favorites…I’m not seeing any homophobic ones but I seeing his apologies and supportive tweets for the gay community. And what homophobic friends are he favoriting or retweeting?

November 28, 2013 at 7:47 pm
(16) isabelle says:

Im gonna tell the press Im actually one of Days writer, I can tell you whats going on set, will youall believe me?? I dont think so!! actually i know a lot !! Not sharing, not worth it

November 28, 2013 at 8:00 pm
(17) Brandon says:

I’m am so thankful that even though Chandler decided to leave, that we still have WilSon. It’s such an important story to tell. I have no doubt that Guy will do Will justice. I’m excited to see what he brings to the role and more excited to the future of WilSon!

November 28, 2013 at 8:05 pm
(18) isabelle says:

The new had tried to get the role of Bryan he never got the part : meaning he wasnt good enough to play Bryan now hes good enough to take over Will Horton This is a joke and this man doesnt gay comunity i think he should , and he doesnt know the storyline , and for the record nobody knows how good he can be but I definitilely wont be a part of this cruel joke Chandler was hurt and it seems like nobody cares anymore

November 28, 2013 at 8:22 pm
(19) Kate says:

Why is this article coming out on Thanksgiving? It’s almost like it is meant to shift focus off Addicts which was promoted earlier in the week and released. Sadly people just don’t understand only 4 people knew of the screen test with Guy and Freddie that took place less than 24 hours before Chandler was fired. Therefore Corday lied to every single Days fan. I wonder if people saw the interview between Freddie and Judi Evans recently – it was so awkward and dispassionate the way Freddie talked about the story like he could barely smile at that point. And why are so many so quick to believe that Freddie and Guy hung out in 1 week more times than so many clueless idiots believe Chandler and Freddie hung out in over 2 years? If their chemistry was “instant” but still building “off camera” why need to hang out every day? If Guy was in that BBQ pic as some thought, why did Guy not retweet that considering he promised fans pictures of that day? Why did it take Freddie 2 months to follow him on twitter and he never publicly congratulate him, infact no cast member did? Does it really sound like they are buddies as the clueless fell for hook, line and sinker? And why would we for the first time get an article about Freddie wanting a wedding when he and Chandler wanted that all along as well as joint media? But NO of course not, they were forbidden from this so what are fans going to think if this happens with Freddie and Guy? So many Wilson and Days fans first heard of a proposal over 6 weeks ago so if Freddie is acting like a wedding is what he wants, what is the actual real truth? So did Peggy McKay lead fans on recently because if wedding scenes were filmed this article simply just contradicts a lot as so much has already over the past few months. I wonder how long Guys contract is between him and the show or is it between him and Corday?

November 28, 2013 at 9:05 pm
(20) Brittany says:

Why do you people hate the guy playing will like you don’t have faith in him that he will be a good job and Isabelle you are right he won’t be chandler and I love chandler so very much but why are you still bringing up what guy tweeted when he apologized a million times like why won’t you let it go

November 28, 2013 at 9:06 pm
(21) Al says:

Isabel runs an anti-Guy Wilson Tumblr and Twitter account, and has been attacking him since Day 1. Fans of Wilson have been onto her shenanigans for months. She’s already admitted to having mental issues, and it shows. She tries to find anything and everything she can in order to attack Guy due to her obsession with Chandler Massey. She has taken one thing after another out of context.

The tweet in question was nothing horrific. It was a term for transsexuals that also got Neil Patrick-Harris in trouble. Most are not aware that said word is now deemed derogatory. Guy Wilson was not attacking the person who was possibly a transsexual either. Guy has a long history of supporting gay rights and progressive causes, and Tweeted apologies for using the term that some find offensive repeatedly. That wasn’t good enough for Isabel who completely ignored it (which was caught by fans of the show). She has an agenda. Her online persona has become legendary and is mocked throughout the internet community.

Once Guy Wilson debuts, she’ll hopefully disappear and stop trolling and harassing people. She really needs to get a life. It’s just a show.

November 28, 2013 at 9:24 pm
(22) isabelle says:

Al you dont know me so who bullying who here??im n not insulting anyone and youre actually mistaking but I would love to know the person youre talking about KATE you took those words right out of my mouth people cant handle the truth , I didnt use my real name bbut Al please tell me how I can meet this person she sseems like a true real human being lol

November 28, 2013 at 9:36 pm
(23) mouse says:

I love how the internet connects people.

why do people have to say bad things about other
people on the internet? It’s sad.

November 28, 2013 at 9:43 pm
(24) Julia says:

I hate that they recast Will as no one can ever replace Chandler. This is gonna suck big time next year. Hope Days get axed finally

November 28, 2013 at 9:46 pm
(25) Darrell says:

Guy will never have what Chandler has. Respect. How stupid are Days to cast him out of everyone in the world they could have? And whats this him being 28? I thought Will was like 19. Isn’t Alison Sweeney like young herself? This is just bad bad bad

November 28, 2013 at 9:49 pm
(26) Bill says:

So I’m confused. They were never going to have a wedding with Chandler and Freddie but now they are. I don’t get how they can change their minds so quickly its like there is more to this story

November 28, 2013 at 9:56 pm
(27) Candace says:

Someone who hates gay people playing gay is just wrong. He seems like the typical high school jock who would talk trash about you behind your back by all those comments he has said. This seems desperation from Days if this is the best they could get

November 28, 2013 at 9:59 pm
(28) PJ says:

Poor Freddie having to work this idiot. Wish he could just quit like all the other younger actors because its going to suck net year

November 28, 2013 at 10:07 pm
(29) Anna says:

Did Will need to evolve? I thought Will has been wonderful and selfless and living and mature? Why is it he needs to “evolve”? Sonny is lucky to have Will!

Also, let’s review integrity and character? A long history of tweets and “favorited” tweets show what Guy WilSon’s character is. And really… Is that who should represent Will? Best choice?
I’m disappointed . Freddie I’ve been a supporter, but have you read his long history of tweets and favorites and you really want to promote that?

November 28, 2013 at 10:11 pm
(30) Anna says:

Maybe Chandler is gay and they didn’t want him part of a gay wedding. I don’t see how a homophobic person can play a gay role

November 28, 2013 at 10:14 pm
(31) Anna says:

And by the way, I am talking about two years worth of tweets and favorites. Let’s pretend his tweet about “tranny touching grapes” did not happen! There are tons of rude and inappropriate tweets and favorited ones insulting smwomen and others. It’s not about one tweet!
Blinders on by some…

November 28, 2013 at 10:15 pm
(32) Marie says:

Im guessing what Freddie meant by “own little flavour” is we wont get unscripted anymore. Such a shame. Why spoil something that was perfect and just let Sonny be someone else instead of an imposter?

November 28, 2013 at 10:16 pm
(33) Hannah says:

So excited at the possibility of a WilSon wedding. I’ve been pretty much wanting it since they first got together though(lol!) so I’m impatient for it to happen. At the end of the day, Chandler was unfortunately leaving (not that I condemn him for that, because good on him for continuing his education, in this day and age it’s important) and I wish him 100% the best and hope to see him in other things soon, but anyway, he was leaving and he’s left now so the only real thing to happen was for someone to join the ranks as Will so the WilSon storyline (which is so so important to so many people) continues onwards) Guy Wilson seems like he’s excited for the things to come and that makes me excited, I’m hopeful he will live up to the hype.

November 28, 2013 at 10:20 pm
(34) Pat says:

I have been such a fan of Freddie, but I’m done. Really?!
This Guy is a great person who favorites ” hit the bitch”?!
Do you think that is great?
I’m baffled!

November 28, 2013 at 10:36 pm
(35) Sherry says:

I’m looking forward to Guy Wilson coming. I’m with Freddie…hoping they will have great scenes together and the story will move along the way it should….I think they will show the fans that they will have great chemistry together. Can’t wait!!!!

November 28, 2013 at 11:09 pm
(36) Tyler says:

I am very excited to see how Wilson’s storyline develops. I really hope they do get married. I also think that Guy will make an excellent Will. This is a logical step and an important one for daytime television to explore. Can’t wait!!!!!

November 28, 2013 at 11:14 pm
(37) Al says:

Days of our Lives has made a huge mistake. I can handle a recast (even though losing Chandler was a huge mistake). But Guy WilSon is not the correct choice. I do not care if he is a superb actor. He is not representing himself as a person worthy of such a position of being a role model. So many talented youn men out there who are sincere, honorable people. Many to choose from. This has ruined Will and Sonny for me. Every time I see him, I will think if his true beliefs. Disgusting.
The cast really is I pis proud if this?

No more Emmy nominations! You will not survive.

November 28, 2013 at 11:45 pm
(38) JC says:

I’m surprised that the gay community and allies, who claim to support anti-bullying, go on to bully Guy Wilson. Instead of spreading love, they go to every forum they can and tear him down. I just find it funny that they think they know Guy Wilson as if they’ve known him all their lives.

I think those with a brain and a heart, should stop feeding the trolls. If we pay no attention to them, they will not get the the attention they crave.

November 28, 2013 at 11:47 pm
(39) Karlene says:

I think Days of Our Lives is going down the tube real fast. Frankly I am sick of the Will and Sonny story line and also the fact that so many of the story lines are going to the dark side. I know life is far from all roses and sunshine but lets get real writers.

November 29, 2013 at 12:03 am
(40) Janet says:

So funny Guy admitted he was doing regular acting classes when he started days. Guess he cant be that ‘phenomenal’. Chandler only did as he is modest and wants to improve his craft. Guy did cos his acting is horrendous. Well done days what a stupid choice

November 29, 2013 at 12:05 am
(41) nicole says:

I am sick of the comments implying that people know secret information…. u dont know anything but what is made up in your head…. I am so tired of seeing negative comments about Guy just cuz u r mad chandler did not want to stay.
I saw Chandler the next day after he was “fired” and he did not seem sad… he said I cant be mad this is what I wanted and also he said I was not fired just let go early.
This story is beautiful and certain people are making it ugly … and shame on you for doing that.

November 29, 2013 at 12:08 am
(42) Darrell says:

People are quick to come to conclusion that others who don’t like Guy Wilson do so because he cant act or is a bad person which we’ve seen in evidence. But they claim that theres nothing to that. Why do those same people automatically assume Guy is so great and wonderful and will be amazing to the show with no evidence? What has he possibly done to make people so confident things will be the same or God forbid better?

November 29, 2013 at 12:17 am
(43) Bob says:

WTF Nicole. Don’t claim secret information but you’re trying to tell everyone Chandler was fine and make it seem like nothing happened. How about all the ‘fans’ talking trash about Chandler in Chicago behind his back? People are so quick to believe anything but they forget the tears and the texting he did over those fans events not to mention falling asleep from exhaustion. Yeah he was so fine after being threatened all week, fired 13 weeks early without pay. Give me a break!!!! And as for JC if people have no shame bullying others who don’t support the recast why is it so different to you? You say they don’t know Guy Wilson but the truth is no fan does and none have met him. So it works both ways

November 29, 2013 at 12:19 am
(44) Kayla says:

So is there a wedding or not? I thought they never wanted one with Wilson goes to show how much of a traitor Corday really is. Hope it fails big time

November 29, 2013 at 12:22 am
(45) Megan says:

Great chemistry? No need to promote the original and the best Wilson but all this now is so forced and fake like they have something to hide. I don’t want a homophobic guy like Guy anywhere near Freddie and definitely not off set. That would piss me off

November 29, 2013 at 12:33 am
(46) Linda says:

Nicole why do you claim that others know nothing and yet you are trying to speak for Chandler yourself? Seriously would a man fired less than 24 hours earlier, have to hop on a plane and meet several people some of which were way too devastated and excited at the same time simply tell you the actual truth of what happened? Guy Wilson wasn’t even actually cast then as we all know Freddie tested with him on Thursday. EVERYONE knows that because that came from Freddie’s mouth. Its like shame on everyone who is against the recast but not shame on Corday or Meng or anyone else involved. Just hope no-one close to you ever has to go through what Chandler did. At least he still tried to put on a brave face which shows his character. Pity his replacement has no respect himself.

November 29, 2013 at 1:04 am
(47) Hannah says:

This recast sucks so much. They should have Sonny with another man or just let Freddie leave. He didn’t want a recast right so we were told. Hope they break up or one of them cheats

November 29, 2013 at 1:09 am
(48) demi says:

Okay…Isabelle you sound like on of those crazy stalker fans … you seem a little to invested in CM’s career. I for one, am very glad that the WilSon ship will get to carry on and I can’t wait to see what the new year brings. Hopefully 2014 will be the year we find out more about Sonny and his past…a crazy ex boyfriend showing up would be a good start. And on a parting note, if some one doesn’t like what GW is tweeting then why are you still reading his tweets????

November 29, 2013 at 1:31 am
(49) isabelle says:

You zll seem to know everything and you judge me because I dont agree with you well be it believe whatever you hear or whatever you see i know things you dont bloody know who I am so why do you think Im lying?? People in the showbusiness industry hide lots of things you dont know anything at all Chandler decided to leave?? What a crack just one thing to say ” Things are not always What they seem, the first apperance deceives many , the intelligence of a few perceives what has been carefully hidden ” Phaedrus

November 29, 2013 at 2:09 am
(50) John Seip says:

So excited for the possibility of this story.

Excited for Guy’s take on Will and will miss Chandler very much.

November 29, 2013 at 2:45 am
(51) Petr says:

To Darrell, in the birth certificate Arianna Grace was stated that Will has 20 years, it was six months ago. There is nothing special about being an actor playing a younger character. Guy Wilson looks very young, so I see no reason why he could not properly handle the role of Will Horton.

I think Guy will be a great follower Chandler, and he brings something different to the character. As Freddie well said, “The character is getting older and evolving.”

November 29, 2013 at 3:10 am
(52) Darrell says:

To Petr, Guy Wilson looks like an ogre not to mention is a bigoted jerk but I guess you can be satisfied with that. Please he what 30 years old playing someone who is barely legal to drink. Absolutely pathetic logic even for a soap. He will kill the story. Honestly don’t know why they are bothering as Freddie never wanted this. Why not make Will straight again? I mean that’s more believable with him in the role as he wont convince anyone he can play gay

November 29, 2013 at 3:20 am
(53) Sarah says:

Now we know why Chandler was probably fired giving this moron all the stuff that should have been his and Freddie’s. This is such a vendetta against them. I don’t get why so many aren’t outraged but Harry Connick Jr could take the role and people would buy it. Wilson is doomed

November 29, 2013 at 4:29 am
(54) ChicagoDan says:

An older actor playing a young character. Um, I’ll never forget when PR was introduced as Bo and their was some sort of accident and the medics asked how old “Bo” was and they said 20. Are you kidding me PR was easily 29 or 30 at the time and definitely looked it. That’s the way soaps have always been late 20s play teens/early 20s. There are hundreds of examples like this in the history of soaps.

As far as hoping for WilSon to fail, be careful of what you wish for. DAYS was very late in the gay game and the last thing we should wish for is for the story to blow up and both characters are sent away. That would be a true crime.

November 29, 2013 at 5:18 am
(55) Petr says:

To Darrell, well, you can have the right, but unfortunately, others decided otherwise, and we must wait and see. When Guy, is not will going to come in handy, I think the fans to be show their dissatisfaction very soon, but we have to wait.

November 29, 2013 at 5:25 am
(56) Jordan says:

C’mon everybody! I’m sure Isabelle, Jedd, Lee, Julia, Darrell, Candace, Kate, PJ, Anna, Pat, Marie, Janet, Al, Bob, Kayla, Linda, Megan and Sarah (phew) could not possibly be wrong about this stuff. I fully believe that they know exactly what they’re talking about. I’m sure Guy really is a horrible person and I’m sure he will be just awful as Will, just like they say. And even though Freddie has shown that he has great chemistry with everyone he works with, I just know there is no way he can make it work with Guy.

I hope they are right. I hope the storyline fails miserably and both Guy and Freddie are fired from the show. That is the only way that everyone can be satisfied! And besides, I’ll bet neither one of them really needs the job anyway. Plus, who really cares whether or not Days has a groundbreaking gay love story or not! It’s not like it has had a positive impact on people’s lives or anything. Right?

(57) cherry says:

im not gonna support a homophobic racist, im disgusted that will horton will be portrayed by a such bad person but im happy for his fans who will get what they deserve….like idol, like fans

November 29, 2013 at 6:50 am
(58) Rachel says:

So sad that it won’t be Chandler for the wilson wedding. The recast still doesn’t sit well with me, just my opinion. And no, I will not be missing out lol if I decided watch Guy as will, all I would imagine would be Chandler’s face on him and my problem is not that Chandler decided to leave the role, all of this would be so much better to deal with and taken with dignity if they let him go in a honorable way like he deserved. And let’s face it, Guy hasn’t made it any easier, with the tranny comment and proclaiming that he is will Horton when he hasn’t even aired yet. I refuse to believe that I have zero interest in Guy Wilson as Will because I am not a true wilson fan. I love Chandler and Freddie’s wilson with every ounce of my being and I will never forget Chandler Massey and his magnificent work with the role. I mean the guy did win two emmys for it. And with that, I will “say it!”.

November 29, 2013 at 8:44 am
(59) beto says:

Wilson will end when Chandler’s last performance airs. The Guy-Sonny version will be the sequel and it should be called Wilson ll. The chemistry and charm of Freddie and Chandler together as a couple will be gone. This new pairing will inherit nothing from the old. It will rise or fall based on what it brings to the screen. The storyline isn’t really that riveting. What has been riveting to watch is the beautiful soulful chemistry that Freddie and Chandler share. It is sad that it will soon be gone. I wish that some network would just give them their own night time show. I think it would be hugely successful. I imagine that I will tune in to see Wilson ll. I am not overly hopeful though that it will have the same mesmerizing effect on me that the current Wilson does. In the looks department alone, Guy doesn’t hold a candle to Chandler and that is where it all honestly begins.

November 29, 2013 at 8:56 am
(60) Angela says:

If Guy’s unprofessionalism so far is any indication, I don’t have high hopes for Will and Sonny. I was unaware that Guy screen tested just the day before Chandler was let go. Is that for sure?

November 29, 2013 at 11:06 am
(61) Joanie says:

I’m so excited for this.. No matter who plays Will this story must go on and I believe Guy Wilson is the perfect pick for this.

November 29, 2013 at 11:47 am
(62) John Seip says:

These fans are talking equality, anti bullying, love etc but what they do to Guy is Bullying, and hate. I mean some of those comments. There are fans going thru his two year of tweets looking for something to slam him on.

Its very hypocritical. I feel that if Chandler or Freddie had made a ignorant comment but then sincerly apologized they would be given more benefit of the doubt

A lot of this anger comes from fans believing Chandler was FIRED. He wasnt. He even admitted he asked to leave early and Days said Ok when we find a new Will, u can exit.

Now maybe Chandler didnt think a replacement would be found so soon, but it was and that is what can happen when both decide to part ways early.

I feel certain fans would be aganist whoever won the role of Will. It just sucks that they have yet to see him as Will and are calling for him to be fired, boycotts and Days to be canceled.

I’m excited about the wedding. Can’t wait.
My impression is many folks that are dedicated to WilSon also watch the whole show. Those that are angry at the show for cutting Chandler Massey early and those that are taking it out on Guy Wilson, also seem to be people that don’t follow the show, only watching WilSon clips on the internet. In the big scheme of things, those naysayers don’t really matter to NBC nearly as much as the rest of the fans.

Great posts Jordan and John Seip! Wanting Freddie fired and an entire show cancelled because Chandler is leaving and you can’t accept that reality is not only cruel to Freddie but unrealistic. Those who can’t get past CM not playing Will can show their displeasure by tuning out….not by cyber stalking and cyber bullying the actor hired to fill the role. Which is what it is when people are going back into the tweet/twit? archives looking for anything that might justify their kind of boorish behaviour. I adore CM and I can’t wait to watch him in future projects. I adore FS and I can’t wait to see where he goes in the WilSon realationship. Of course that’s jmo.

(66) Brandon says:

Is it sad that I’m already thinking about who will do what in the wedding? I’m thinking Abby will be Sonny’s best “man” and T will be Will’s best man, and he is holding Ari. Johnny could be the ring bearer and Allie as the flower girl. Or Sydney. Too bad Uncle Eric can’t officiate. LOL! I put too much thought in this but I’m so excited for a wedding!

(67) isa-jed says:

Many seem to be conjuring up so much in their imagination. By now Freddie Smith and Chandler Massey certainly realize these folks are nutty, coo-coo, perhaps just plain crackers. They are certainly no longer fans, and now behaving like loony birds. It must make the fan events seem a bit creepy, having to watch out for unstable people, but I guess that is why they have security on hand, or at least I hope they do.

(68) Betty says:

Having watched for 20 years, I feel very comfortable saying that many people are making assumptions that are not true about people who are unhappy with Guy Wson as recast. I am not a WilSon only fan. But I am definitely not jumping on the GW bandwagon blindly as so many “Wilson” fans are doing. Some are so sure of his personality based on what? One apology and tweets that communicated with fans basically.

I would be fine with a recast. gE, I am not fine with.

Funny thing is some people criticize those who are opposed. Yet some if those, of course, want Eilsin to continue no matter what because they sell merchandise and make money on Wilson products.
Also. They call those who don’t agree bullies while they bully and insult. Those who disagree with the Ge choice are not discussing fans but GW. And those who agree have only one defense. To criticize other fans. They are the bullies, if anyone is at all.

(70) Mari says:

I understand that people are upset about the way that things were handled with Chandler Massey, but he was going to leave, and I for one would like the WilSon storyline to continue. It’s a story that needs to be told especially in this time and age. Unfortunately for some; in order for the story to continue there had to be a recast. I’m sure that most of you like me did not know who Chandler Massey and Freddie Smith were until their debut on Days and we all grew to love them. So what i don’t understand is why people are not willing to giving Guy Wilson the same opportunity as these two other great actors. I understand that he tweeted a word that was insensitive and hurtful, but he apologized and learned from that like many of us did including myself, but for people to dig into his past to find any kind of infraction makes people wonder what their true motives are.

This is so bad for Days having Guy Wilson taking over his role. He’s such a bad actor in his other roles. Why coudnt they find someone with some class?

November 29, 2013 at 3:03 pm
(74) Shakita says:

At the end of the day, the story is the same. Chandler WANTED TO LEAVE. DAYS LET HIM GO. Guy IS THERE NOW and he’s not going anywhere.

People accusing others of being loons on here is pretty rich coming from those who invade the personal space of celebs like they ‘own them’. People who try and set up anti bullying campaigns for racist and homophobic actors who bully online themselves is sad sad sad

November 29, 2013 at 3:13 pm
(77) John Seip says:

Funny how some here call Guy a Bigot based off of a TWEET. He apologized for his remark saying that he was ignorant and learning from his mostake

What do some of you want his blood. He made a MISTAKE & took responsibility for it. That takes guts. Especially when fans dont even know him. Hell no one here truly knows Chandler or Freddie but you give them benefits of doubt

The thing is U guys just Hate Guy for the plain & Simple reason he is the new Will. Just own that

And what does it say about fans who TROLL Guy’s FB & Twitter looking for something to make him look bad

If you dont ike him, why put all the effore into this

Seems stalkish 2 me,

November 29, 2013 at 3:14 pm
(78) Cindy says:

I don’t understand so Guy never did a chemistry test with Freddie so Guy didnt tell us the truth. That is so bad wish they just have Sonny with another man cos a wedding will suck with this guy

November 29, 2013 at 3:15 pm
(79) John Seip says:

Guy did read with Freddie

November 29, 2013 at 3:19 pm
(80) John Seip says:

However Freddie didnt know he was reading with actors for the WILL recast. He thought it was a new role. That is pretty standard practice when casting soaps. They cast characters under code names.

November 29, 2013 at 3:23 pm
(81) Brenda says:

Funny how all those who fell in love with Guy within a second believe its just about one tweet. It actually is more than that. It is the build up of comments over an extended period of time and no-one believe an apology that took several hours to make particularly when he has made so many comments like this before. If people are content with a homophobic person playing a gay role then I guess they are not gay friendly after all. If he was ignorant before getting the role what did he possibly do to get it and someone we had no idea before? No way would other ignorant people get a role like this.

November 29, 2013 at 3:27 pm
(82) Erica says:

These probably aren’t even Freddies words. He never wanted a recast now he is forced to work with someone that he doesn’t like and is this true about a wedding? How funny is that they didnt ever want a Wilson wedding but now they do um doesn’t anyone see how bad that looks for them or are so many fans stupid

November 29, 2013 at 3:27 pm
(83) Oops says:

The WilSon story is a very important storyline and it needs to be told. It has touched so many that it’s unfair for it to stop to please a few who can’t accept the recast. I love Chandler but it was his decision to go but yes it was not handled well. If we don’t accept chandler’s decision to leave that means we r not his true fans as he left for better things which he totally deserves. He is such a talented guy that it’s only fair that we see him on the big screen. And if ppl can’t accept that I don’t have anything else to say. Ppl keep saying they have inside info then I believe they should spill so that we also come to know about this “grave injustice”. There is a saying that show must go on, no matter what ,so a storyline which is really important in support of equality must be told irrespective of who portrays whom. I support WilSon and so I support Guy Wilson the new Will and if there will be a recast again in future I will support that too provided the Wilson storyline is projected sensitively.

November 29, 2013 at 3:28 pm
(84) John Seip says:

Who and what the HELL gives U the right to JUDGE OTHERS???

Who are yu to say that if we accept Guy’s app;pgy that we are not gay friendly.

I am GAY. I am allowed to accept an apology and not be condemed for it by some faceless woman at about.com

Sorry that I and others dont love up to whatever U consider gay friendly
We cant all be perfect like U i guess


November 29, 2013 at 3:29 pm
(85) John Seip says:

freddie cant demand no recast for Will. That is not up to him & when did he ever say pubically that he didnt like Guy Wilson?

Dont put words in his mouth

(86) MC says:

Seems like a lot of people are still angry at everything that has happened and are finding it hard to believe what the real story is. This is what happens with recasts and why they should never have their names released like it was as all it has done in bring out the worst in everyone. I mean EVERYONE on both sides has become a “loon” as someone said. I guess Days got their wish all along of fans turning on each other. Nice job Days!

November 29, 2013 at 3:38 pm
(87) Brenda says:

WOW John are you going to apologise for that comment or is bullying ok for everyone who likes this new guy and then to accuse me of being perfect. Now that is putting words in my mouth must say a lot about your character. I wonder if Freddie has just had enough and will quit to save us all the trouble of having to suffer next year seeing him pretending like he is friends with this person and pretending they are still a couple

I agreed with Beto, guy-freddie will not be WilSon for me, it’s another story bcoz it can’t parallel the chemistry of Chandler-Freddie’s WilSon , WilSon story is an amazing story, but if the actors can’t do justice to the role..it’ll be ruined…Hope Chan and Freddie will have their own soap..

November 29, 2013 at 3:43 pm
(90) Clark says:

I understand the story line, but real life Guy Wilson is not real life Chandler Massey. GW Will Horton will not equate to CM Will Horton in talent and quality seeing his past acting roles. Homophobic and racist tweets are a pattern with Wilson that people have come up with 1,001 excuses for. The latest was not a one time thing and he is being enabled to continue to be demeaning and bigoted. A “tweet” apology is not a genuine apology. He hurt and upset a lot of people and never admitted he was wrong. He an archaic social conservative with a sporadic acting history and this his first consistent role ever on “Days.”. He doesn’t come off as educated, but a bit pompous, selfish and arrogant. I understand Freddie putting a spin on this to keep his career afloat. I will always support Freddie Smith as he is a phenomenal actor and person to be. The jury poll first tally of votes for Guy Wilson doesn’t look very good. The “Wil” in WilSon is gone. It cannot be duplicated or replaced. Freddie was against a recast as many,, many people are.

November 29, 2013 at 3:43 pm
(91) John Seip says:

Brenda U said that if we accept Guy’s apology then we must not be gay friendly.

Judge people much???

No one here knows Guy

Im just giving him the benefit of the doubt in ythis situation

The thing that irks me is that so called fans are doing anti Guy Wilson pages and flooding his twitter & FB with hateful and hurtful comments

How can some say they are anti bullying and then do that to Guy?

Explain me that

November 29, 2013 at 3:45 pm
(92) John Seip says:


Guy did apologize and say he was sory and that his comments were ignorant and that he learning from his mistake

I dont know what else some want him to say???

November 29, 2013 at 4:00 pm
(93) Brenda says:

Fair enough John

but me let turn it right back around at you. How can ppl who claim are gay friendly and not bullies, bully others for standing up to someone who made a bigoted comment in the same week those same ppl were raising money for his birthday anti-bullying? The same thing happened last year in his birthday week where he made racist remarks about French people so yes it is a pattern and we deserve to be sceptical. What if Chandler or Freddie made those remarks in the beginning which they wouldn’t but what would you have said about that? We shouldn’t have to hear over and over the everybody makes mistakes crap not from someone is supposed to play a gay character soon

November 29, 2013 at 4:07 pm
(94) John Seip says:

I wasnt aware of anything last year so Im going off what happened now. I am going to give Guy the benefit of doubt that it was a istke and he has learned from his ignorance.

Now its on Guy to prove he is a man that means what he said by his apology and i hope he did

However no matter what he said, there is no need to bully him with tweets and messages. You can stand up for what one believes in without getting nassty on social media

November 29, 2013 at 4:16 pm
(95) Brenda says:

So I’m not sure of your argument John. It’s ok for those who like Guy to spread hate on fb and twitter about others and support his ignorance and bigotry because that’s not fair to him and yet you are defending that and attacking others when they stand up to the bullies. Isn’t that the very essence of hypocrisy? If he doesn’t make indecent, inappropriate and downright horrifying remarks not to mention favorite so many other despicable tweets then people wouldn’t have to say things about him. Does that make sense to you? Oh quickly Guy Wilson is nowhere near the only celeb who gets hate and attacked either online or in the real world because he is now in the public eye to a very small demographic he has to be even more of a role model to the very people who will be judging him and everything he does and says. Therefore it is completely stupid of him to contemplate making comments before he even airs. How does that possibly win him any fans? Some fans of the story laughed about it and thought it was ok but at the end of the day they are not in charge of the show nor know how the cast reacted privately. I just hope its not a case of another idiot out there who can’t keep his mouth shut. Believe me there are far too many already in the world. Will Horton next year or not won’t stop people from tuning out if he continues this up

November 29, 2013 at 4:19 pm
(96) John Seip says:

No Im saying that I am giving Guy the benefit of the doubt here. I believe his apology is soncere.

I hope he meant it cause IF this happens again I bet he will lose a lot of supporters

ISo like i said benefit of doubt and hope he has truly learned from that ignorant comment and he moves forward not backwards

November 29, 2013 at 4:21 pm
(97) Katie says:

Wait so he is 28 and Will is like 20 that is some crazy ass thinking. I thought Will is becoming more mature and yet this arrogant supposed adult is acting like a teenager, a teenager who never grew up and wouldn’t know the first thing about gay culture and they want him to get married to a guy?? Guess something really bugged Days about Chandler to get rid of him of that quick and replace with this idiot

November 29, 2013 at 4:25 pm
(98) John Seip says:

Chandler Quit. He even asked to leave EARLY. He was not FIRED

November 29, 2013 at 4:30 pm
(99) CC says:

Soaps are so predictable even if there is a wedding one or both will probably cheat or Will finds out his daughter isn’t really is or someone will crash the ceremony. No-one in the world thinks they will get married regardless of what we were told. They’ll probably cut the scenes once viewers start switching off in January and find an excuse to fire Freddie like they did Chandler cos it will be all his fault to other fans for faking it. Seen it all before no one is happy in soaps only Freddie and Chandler showed how brilliant they are with the horrible writing they got

November 29, 2013 at 4:37 pm
(100) PJ says:

John you continue to tell others they don’t know what happened and yet how the hell can you possibly say Chandler quit when you weren’t there yourself? Stop trying to think you know better than everyone. He was fired for goodness sake 3 months early from his contract and was in tears. Just more stupid reasoning from Guy lovers believing everything they read. The media doesn’t report the whole truth often which someone with a brain should know and when so much information has been misconstrued to simply say it was his fault or he quit is beyond unbelievable

November 29, 2013 at 4:48 pm
(101) Bryan says:

Wish Sonny would just be with someone else. I love Will but I don’t get why Guy Wilson is so special. His acting sucked in other things maybe they should have just let Will and Sonny travel the world together instead of ruining the story

(102) cherry says:

John Seip you have become a broken record with the story of chandler who wanted to leave …. if you believe everything you read then why not believe what I’ve read about chandler going out of the studio crying? ahh ok you just believe what is most convenient for you …. everyone knows that chandler WAS FIRED except you…but you claim to know that GW apology was sincere , how you know this? You are free to believe what you want but stop with the lessons of morality and tactics of persuasion… do not work …

(103) WilSonFan 1992 says:

I, for one, will support Wilson and Guy Wilson (whether some of you like it or not, and despite what has happened) and Freddie Smith. I love how Days has brought this story to our lives too.. I also admit we do miss Chandler, but sometimes we have to move on, or at least give it a chance. Another thing: I really do not like seeing so much negativity, BS, etc., on other social media about this. There are times that I do feel sorry for the people who won’t give Guy a chance, because they will really miss a golden opportunity to see what he brings to the character. He won’t be Chandler, but Guy has a golden opportunity to prove it to WilSon fans. If you don’t like it, then don’t watch it after next month. As for the people supporting and giving Guy a chance, thank you. I am not and I refuse to be a negative person, but I really do not like any negativity shown here or other places. Have a good weekend!

She was outed on other sites via her IP address and was banned. She used these same names, and posted this same exact comments. She’s copying and pasting the same comments. She runs an anti-Guy Wilson Tumblr and Twitter page, and admitted to being mentally ill (in relation to these characters to boot!). She has a persecution complex over being trashed and removed from one site after the next.

Stop feeding the troll.

Do I have to release the Freddie Smith homophobic rap he wrote and recorded with his current girlfriend a year before he landed the role on Days?

Once Guy debuts, Isabel will check into a mental institution and she’ll never be heard from again.

November 29, 2013 at 5:05 pm
(105) Al says:

“So funny Guy admitted he was doing regular acting classes when he started days.”

That’s what actors do. To keep up with their craft, they attend seminars. Guy’s work speaks for itself. He has a long resume.

Your ignorance is astounding. Do your homework next time, Isabel.

November 29, 2013 at 5:14 pm
(106) cherry says:

Al, you need to work on some your issues bc im cherry not isabel and its funny that you put in that list everyone who commented against the recast …please remember to work……

(107) Al says:

Strange. I am Al and posted earlier and someone just used my name to post.

I think Guy WilSon is a very poor choice. I am not against a recast. I am against Guy as the recast. Poor judgement.

This is not about Chandler. This is about finding someone who is worthy of representing this role.

People are so sure he is a kind person. A lot is being bet on him. Yet he doesn’t have a history that shows that.

Well Ive got news for you, Im 100% sane, and Im not the only one whos actually against that recast, that pisses you of, bunch of GW sheeps, you cant handle that other persons agree with me, and trust me Im not the one comenting on their behalf, im flattered , lolol but Im not I can speak for myself i dont hide behind annymous accounts anonymous names to bash people , that s not who I am, Get your stories straight, IM not running any GW pages or tumblr or twitts, I m a Cheddie fan, so keep bullying me, and trash down my name, I dont care, but i have a family and kids to look after so I dont spend all day on this article putting coments agaisnt GW on different names just for fun!!!!! youre crazy !

(110) K says:

I’m loving how both members and supporters of the self-proclaimed most tolerant and open community on the planet are spewing venom and hatred at an actor who HAS YET TO APPEAR ON-SCREEN. How do you people find time to go and stalk this poor guy’s Twitter feed looking for reasons to harass and bully him, when you’re supposedly all about tolerance and equality?

These misbehaving WilSon fans should be writhing in shame right now for the way they’re treating Guy Wilson. Such blatant hypocrisy is, quite frankly, embarrassing for this WilSon fan and GLBT supporter.

November 29, 2013 at 6:37 pm
(111) MG says:

Should’ve been Chandler for the wedding. Instead of having them do nothing since basically June, they should’ve had them get married during that time. I just feel like Chandler and Freddie created this extremely popular couple, and it became popular because of them and it does make me upset that a new guy is gonna come in and be the one that gets to do the wedding. And I’ve read interviews where they say people will understand the reason for the recast and that’ll help, but it actually pisses me off. They still had 4 months with Chandler and could’ve done it with the real Wilson. This whole situation has me upset and I doubt i’ll be able to watch come January

November 29, 2013 at 6:40 pm
(112) MG says:

And I think the love for him is as premature as the hate for him that everyone keeps complaining about. You haven’t seem him either and his other acting jobs are TOTALLY different from working on a soap thats much more fast paced and you only get one take. Wouldn’t be surprised if he became overwhelmed by it and isn’t as good as you think he’ll be

November 29, 2013 at 7:21 pm
(113) Harry says:

Why are there people here accusing others of using different names? I don’t understand how you can make false allegations like that about people you don’t even know. That is an all time low from Wilson fans

(114) cathym says:

Why don’t we all wait and see when Day’s will air the new Will.

Everyone is talking like you’ve been watching him for a few months and are seeing that there’s no chemistry between Sonny and new Will. Let’s just wait til they are on Days.

How many times did they change actors and actresses, some we hated at the beginning and we ended up loving them and some just didn’t work. Who knows, maybe when Chandler will finish his education he will be back, or if it doesn’t work with Guy, they could change the actor again, time will tell, you never know.

I personally don’t know anything about tweets and facebook, and I will never sign for that, it’s too personal and dangerous and all I hear is people getting into trouble. I’m also afraid to write here, I always want to write not to offend anyone, because I respect that people are all different, people view things different and people have different opinions about things. Just once I received a not so good comment, I defended the situation but then I regretted it. It would have been better if I just ignored what was said to me, but I moved on.

(115) .m.e. says:

(60) Joanie – if it doesn’t matter who plays Will, why are you all so in loooove with GW and think he is perfect? How do you know?

I think it does matter VERY much who plays a character. If it didn’t matter, I’d love andwatch many more series out there. But I don’t watch when I can’t stand an actor/s. Why would I torture myself with an actor I don’t like, only because of the storyline? That’s not what fun/entertainment is for me. So if the storyline is great, but I don’t like the actor I won’t watch and that’s what will happen with DAYS when GW shows up.

And yes, why is it now said that WilSon will get married, when it was something Corday didn’t want before? Before Chandler was still on the show. Why didn’t Corday want Chandler to be Will, when WilSon get married. Especially when Corday has said he didn’t want a WilSon wedding.

November 29, 2013 at 8:32 pm
(116) Dana says:

The Wilson story line has touched so many people since the start. It has helped people come to terms with who they are, who they want to be, where they want their life to go. It helped and will continue to help people realize that people fall in love with who they are meant to be with and it does not matter. I am proud of this. I fell in love with the story line first and fore most and began to love the actors as the story continued. I will be forever grateful for Chandler and Freddie for their phenomenal acting and bond that they have shared since the start of this story. I am sorry to see Chandler leave and he will be deeply missed, I also wish him nothing but the best in his future endeavors. I am sure that he will succeed with which ever path he chooses once he is finished his studies. I will continue to support the wilson story line, to me this story has so much to tell and so much more to teach people in today’s society and it will always be my main priority. I will also continue to support Freddie, I respect his decision to continue the story with Guy and I am looking forward to a wilson wedding and what else it can teach me and all the followers of this story.

November 29, 2013 at 8:55 pm
(117) .m.e. says:

(15) Laurence H – his one comment (which he has since deleted) was offensive to many people. It’s not melodramatic or ridiculous, when you feel insulted. He didn’t say it in a derogatory way? Seriously? I was 18 when I met a transvestite for the first time and I wasn’t prepared, let me tell you! We were both nervous but I knew that I had to be respectful, GW with 28 obviously didn’t (“[..]is she a chick or a tranny (?) and will he/she pleeeze stop touching all the grapes” – sounds pretty insulting to me!). If you are part of any minority that gets insulted, punched, hated, bullied, driving people to take their own lives, you can’t tell them to just move on or get over it. That’s very damaging. As for some of his tweets, some are insulting to certain countries, they are negative about anti-bullying campaigning, he has favorited tweets that are racist and that make fun of men that aren’t manly enough, and tweets that are talking trash about women etc. I don’t want an actor with that attitude towards the LGBT community and people in general, to play a gay character. He apologised for his comment (he had to be asked to apologise!) but then went on favoriting fan tweets that made similar to him bad taste comments about transgender people. I mean hello!? I don’t want to.. I mean, I can’t even imagine how Freddie must feel to have to act opposite someone who shows no respect whatsoever.

November 29, 2013 at 9:10 pm
(118) Corday says:

Aww everything was so perfect with the current wilson but leave it to TPTB to spoil it by hiring an actor who uses slurs lol good job Meng and Corday, Bravo!!

(119) .m.e. says:

[61] John Seip – as a gay man, why would you want someone to play a gay role, important role, who is disrespectful to the LGBT community? I don’t get it. And Chandler “even admitted he asked to leave early” Admitted? Why would he have to admit this? AFTER he was fired he suddenly mentiond he wanted to leave early. He never said mentioned this before and only 10 days before he was fired, he was still being talked to, to possibly stay longer! Longer! Not leave earlier! There is so much crap in what Corday/Meng wants fans to believe it’s scary!

Maybe Chandler did think his contract would not be extended after December and hence plans to go back to school for instance. Then, if after this comment, Corday and Meng would have said ok, this changes things and we may need to recast after all and then Corday would have taken some time to find the right actor and also would not have let Jen Lilley spill the beans months ahead, but would have announced the new actor I don’t know, in mid December, with an official statement – all this would have gone down much better with fans that are not keen on recasts. But Corday and Meng went about this totally the wrong way and pissed off many people. Also, saying they didn’t want a wedding, they didn’t want WilSon to be a super-couple and then also saying they didn’t want a recast but then changing their mind about all of it?! Why? Why change their mind the minute Chandler is gone?

(120) Brandon says:

January is just around the corner and I cannot wait to see what Guy brings to WilSon. I’m excited. While I’ll miss Chandler, he decided to move on and HE WANTED a recast. Oh, and Guy apologized so to keep whining about that one tweet, how about we all move on. Guy isn’t going anywhere and the constant bitching surely won’t get him fired. No need to waste your breath. Love WilSon! That’s the most important thing!

November 29, 2013 at 10:24 pm
(121) Jennifer says:

I will miss Chandler, but Wilson must go on! Guy said a stupid thing. It doesn’t necessarily make him a bigot. He got called on it and I’m sure he won’t be saying it again! I think a lot of people that are holding that against him, were just looking for a reason to diss him, because he’s not Chandler. I’ve been watching soaps for over 30 years and I’ve seen many recasts. It sucks, but it is the nature of the business. One of the good things about recasts is a new actor will bring new dimensions to a character and that’s usually good. I wish Guy all the luck in the world because he does have a tough act to follow.

November 29, 2013 at 10:40 pm
(122) TJohnson says:

Now that Nick’s homophobic journey is sort of over, I wonder if Days will cook up some other homophobe in town bent on trying to spoil the boys SS nuptials. Is anyone left that might come out of the woodwork and become a Debbie Downer about Will and Sonny’s matrimony? I’m up for any reasonable S/L that will give Will and Sonny more scenes.

November 29, 2013 at 11:14 pm
(123) Laura says:

TJohnson -It would be interesting if one of Sonny’s brothers were to be cast and he was someone who was uncomfortable with Sonny’s sexuality.

November 29, 2013 at 11:23 pm
(124) Anna says:

Guy said a stupid thing on twitter and he hasn’t even aired yet. Wait until he says it in public to fans probably the same fans who grovel over him thinking they have a chance with him. Some fans don’t deserve to meet them with their stalking and constant abuse towards others who don’t agree with them. So damn sad most of them are for this guy must say what sad lives they lead

Why is it the same people saying its only 1 tweet people are upset about. DO THEY KNOW HOW TO READ OTHER COMMENTS?

November 29, 2013 at 11:32 pm
(126) Danny says:

Brandon how can you possibly say Guy “isn’t going anywhere”, do you think you know better than anyone what is really going on? What if he sucks as a lot of people think and hope he will? They can easily fire him you know they fire people for less than hate speech before so he wouldn’t be the first. Don’t preach that you know everything about what Chandler really wanted. Of course he wasn’t going to tell the truth to fans straight after he was fired. He’s not the man

November 29, 2013 at 11:54 pm
(127) John Seip says:

Days or any soap cant just fire an actor at any moment. They have to do it within the outs laid out in contracts. Usually soap contracts have outs either every 13 weeks or 26 weeks. It depends on how the said contract was made.

If the actor is fired before those outs the actor must still recieve pay for the remainder of that contract cycle

November 30, 2013 at 2:39 am
(128) Victoria says:

John you seem to know a lot about contracts so I’m guessing you work for Days then and can tell us why Chandler was fired with no pay or is that a myth? Care to share details about Guy Wilsons contract with the fans I’m sure are dying to hear about it.

I wonder if a soap actor commits a crime or really screws up big time according their employer what would happen then.

November 30, 2013 at 6:43 am
(129) Sandy says:

I find it interesting that ppl were so easily accepting of Guy’s apology over his comment. Would they have been if he had used the N word or the F word, I don’t think so. These words are very offensive to each community. Why should it be any different with the term he used to describe transgendered ppl. It may not seem overly offensive to some but to others it is and that’s the point isn’t it? If u want to continue to watch after Chandler leaves then that’s your right,just as it’s mine not to.

November 30, 2013 at 2:54 pm
(130) Michael says:

I wish this storyline was on Days when I came of age. Thank you Freddie for bringing this story to life and inspiring so many along the way. We are very fortunate Days believes in this story, Sonny and Will. Thank you to Chandler and Guy for sharing themselves with the world too. I don’t think some understand how very important this story is to some and I am thankful it will continue.

November 30, 2013 at 3:13 pm
(131) tommy says:

If you use google anyone can find how contracts work on daytime soaps

November 30, 2013 at 4:53 pm
(133) Brandon says:

I support WilSon. I am not just watching this story for Freddie or Chandler. This story is one of the best love stories daytime has told. And it has helped so many people. I’m thankful to Days for telling it and thankful that we have THREE talented actors willing to tell it! I have faith in Guy because Days wouldn’t have hired him if he didn’t have the chops to do it. Bring on the WilSon wedding!

November 30, 2013 at 5:54 pm
(134) Kris says:

I guess this is an unofficial confirmation that there is a wedding, which sucks. I want Chanlder and Freddie to do the Wilson wedding, not some new person who did nothing to make the couple what they are, but gets to do the wedding. They’re just doing this for press coverage to make them look progressive like ‘Look at us, we’re doing a same-sex marriage on daytime TV.’ Should’ve done it when you had both original actors, cause there was plenty of time to do it, instead if bringing in a new person and having this be like the first thing he does.

As for Days hiring him cause they think he has the chops to do it, they don’t care about that. They’ve had, and currently have, actors that aren’t that great, but it doesn’t matter about their ability to act, and they certainly don’t care about what fans think.

November 30, 2013 at 8:43 pm
(135) loa says:

I am very sadden and will miss Chandler like Crazy, That will never change,Freddie and Chandler has an amazing chemistry that is hard to get, Things won’t be the same I am open minded and will give Guy a chance, I am so GLAD that Dools did not end the Wilson story line, I feel it is an important Story to tell, who ever the actor is, Yes
I feel there has to be great/incredible actors to perform an amazing
story as Wilson is, I have Confidence that Guy will do a great job, He has Freddie by his side, I will continue to watch Days and excited to see what Guy will bring to the table. I would love to see a Wilson Wedding and hope it happens like it has been said. I think
this is the next chapter in a book, and glad that Guy will start a new chapter for us as Will and Very glad that Freddie will continue to be sonny in this amazing Story Side point Everyone makes mistakes but
very few people will own up to it or even apologized for what happen, with that, grown to respect him even more for that!!
Just hope that The Writers will continue to
give Wilson a great story to tell!!!

November 30, 2013 at 9:15 pm
(136) Clark Cowles says:

Please read my reply again as you appear to be side stepping my sentence. You say, “I dont know what else some want him to say???”

Here is what I want him to say. I stated he did not say he was “wrong.” “Wrong.” That’s want the word want to see- and hear. Celebrities do “foot in mouth” all the time and say the word “sorry” in a scripted fashion thinking the hurt and pain they caused to people magically disappears and people will believe it. It doesn’t an many do not. Again, a “tweet” apology is not a real genuine apology. It quick and easy to just throw out 140 characters or less and “wham bam slam.” Someone with courage and principles would make more of an effort to communicate a more thoughtful and constructive apology.

I continue to be amused and perplexed as to “Seattle Slew” Guy Wilson fans who use the word “hate” as if they are passing out lollipops. “Hate” is a strong word I have rarely use. I have never used the word in regards to this topic and never will. What I am most angry (not hateful) about is not Wilson’s recast. It is the process as how Chandler Massey was fired and a minor new actress publicly announced the recast. That should have come from NBC, Corday, Meng, or even Ballard. It was a cheap and cowardly thing to do. I believe is was to demean and insult Chandler and Days fans. It did all the aforementioned to me.

November 30, 2013 at 9:48 pm
(137) Amy says:

This is probably a hoax no wedding on Days ever is happy. Sami would probably find a way to ruin it or Will finds out his daughter isn’t really is. They won’t make them happy ever so don’t believe this will happen. It’s probably desperation to make people think they should watch but the homophobes won’t like this and fans won’t either. Just get rid of the story if everyone is going to be sad

December 1, 2013 at 12:34 am
(138) John Seip says:

Hate is a strong word.its a very simple emotion and I have seen a lot of directed ub=nfairly at Guy, Chandler, Freddie and days fans

(139) Mary says:

Can someone please help me. People are saying that this new person is going to propose to Sonny in his first scene but that cant be right. How stupid would that be

December 1, 2013 at 4:50 am
(140) Jay says:

Not even gonna pretend to be happy if there is a wedding that isn’t with Freddie AND Chandler. This sucks.

December 1, 2013 at 4:05 pm
(141) John says:

There are so many gay men on social media not only defending but supporting what Guy Wilson has said with not just one tweet but several. Someone who favorites hate tweets using the “N” word is racist surely so why is that ok? Actors can be fired for using hate speech and why is Guy so ignorant at 28? Maybe he has tantrums because he knows how much of a joke he was hired. Doesn’t really matter the story is dead. A wedding next year is pointless. Might as well be Sonny having a one night stand and marrying the first guy he sees.

December 1, 2013 at 4:12 pm
(142) Sharon says:

I’m with you Jay especially after they said there would never be a wedding and there wasn’t going to be a recast either. Such an insult to the actors but I think some fans really don’t care about the actors anyway only pretend to

December 1, 2013 at 5:42 pm
(143) BJ says:

Why not just make Will straight again? That’s more believable than Guy Wilson playing gay

December 1, 2013 at 8:22 pm
(144) John Seip says:

So Guy says something that is wrong and apologizes many times. and people say he should not be supported for his hurtful and hateful comments. That he shouldnt be given benefit of doubt that it was a mistake and I could accept what you guys saying this felt if You didnt turn around with the next breath and spew hate and hurt on him as well. That makes you look just as bad as what you are condeming Guy for.

How bout taling a long look in the mirror at yourself again before judging anyone and their actions

December 1, 2013 at 8:40 pm
(145) Bryan says:

Anyone condoning what Guy said is not gay friendly so Im not sure why people have to give him the benefit of the doubt at all. Hypothetically if a gay wedding was really being filmed that means he made hurtful and insensitive comments after and does not make him a very nice person at all. If you condone what he has said before that means you condone hatred maybe you should look in the mirror

December 1, 2013 at 8:43 pm
(146) Ash says:

Someone is saying that Will cheats on Sonny with Brian soon so I dont think they will ever get married. No way will days ever do a gay wedding

December 1, 2013 at 8:48 pm
(147) John Seip says:

Bryan and everyone else here who sees fit to tell the ones that have give Guy benefit of doubt that we are not gay friendly.

1) you dont know any of us personally

2) You dont know what anyone here is like when they are not posting here

3) U also dont know who guy is

4) Maybe the ones here who have given Guy Benefit of doubt are not willing to rush to judgement based on TWEETS.

5)Telling us we are not gay friendly again thanks for sending more hate & judging people you havent met a day in your life

December 1, 2013 at 8:49 pm
(148) Morgan says:

Can someone please tell me if its true that Guy Wilson once tried to play Brian but they hated him? This must be a mistake that they like him now. I dont get it. Freddie probably really wants to quit

December 1, 2013 at 8:49 pm
(149) John Seip says:

Will wouldnt cheat and defintley not with Brian. Will doesnt like Brian and I believe the wedding has been filmed before news broke about it

December 1, 2013 at 8:50 pm
(150) John Seip says:

not true. However Brant daugherty who played Brian also auditioned for Will when Chandler got the role.

December 1, 2013 at 8:58 pm
(151) Brady says:

Wonder what happened when Guy got into work after he made his comments and what the cast thought. No one else on Days would dare say anything bigoted in public so makes me think why he is so special to them. Hes gonna suck so much

December 1, 2013 at 9:04 pm
(152) John Seip says:

How about when Melissa Reeves tweeted about eating Chick-Fil-A when the company gets money from groups that want to kill Gays and Lesbians. She was bullied for eating their food. Sent hateful tweets and fans wanted her fired

she still has her job.

It just slays me that people on here saying Guy is a bully who is ignorant & hateful. Well everytime U write a hateful response to Guy or about Guy you are doing the same damn thing U accuse Guy of doing & Being

Pot Meet Kettle

December 1, 2013 at 9:04 pm
(153) Marie says:

Morgan alot of people have heard Guy auditioned for Brian and was turned down thats not really a secret. They pulled a name out of a hat for Will because they didn’t want the media to find out why they fired Chandler. Freddie was opposed strongly to a recast but they couldn’t fire him so forcing him to work with someone who he hated is the only way they could keep him there or he would have quit. No one believes what Freddie is saying anymore hope he just gets another role and finally leaves that stupid show

December 1, 2013 at 9:09 pm
(154) Brady says:

John do you want a lollipop for your one example? That woman is not playing a gay role Guy Wilson is so it is simply a joke he can speak and write racist and homophobic remarks. He knows nothing about the gay community and clearly people like you will accept anything he does and says just to prove something. Just hope he doesn’t make people switch off for good as then it will be all for nothing

December 1, 2013 at 9:10 pm
(155) John Seip says:

Can people stop putting words in Freddie’s mouth that he hates Guy Wilson. If you are so sure he did, prove it. Liknk to the interview please. Otherwise, stop speaking for Freddie like you know what is going on.

December 1, 2013 at 9:14 pm
(156) John Seip says:

Melissa and Guy both tweeted Ignorance.

Guy apologized and admitted he was ignorant pn the subject and needed to learn.

That right there takes balls. A lot of people in his situation would not have the guys to admit their ignorance.

I give Guy a lot of respect for stepping up and doing that.

This is why I give him benefit of doubt & support

December 1, 2013 at 9:30 pm
(157) Brady says:

Perhaps stop speaking for Guy that he is genuinely sorry for his comments when he has made them several times before. Perhaps there are leaks from the set and cast members don’t want him around but we don’t know that. Just like we don’t have to believe his apology was real or forced

December 1, 2013 at 9:33 pm
(158) Tricia says:

So much hate towards people who dont like Guy Wilson. Almost sounds like freedom of expression shouldn’t exist anymore

Hate is not free speech. And there is a lot of Guy Hate here

December 1, 2013 at 9:41 pm

December 1, 2013 at 9:43 pm

Love how its seen as hate to give Guy Wilson benefit of doubt??? HA HA

Really you can say that. Get the hell Over urself

(162) John Seip says:

How can anyone who claims to want supprt and Love for the LGBTQI community in one breath, speak write and tweet Guy such hateful things. Where is your love & support. What is this? Do what I say, not what i do?

The ones doing this hate to Guy are no better that what you accuse Guy of being 7 doing. Do you see that?

December 1, 2013 at 9:52 pm
(163) John Seip says:

Instead of sending Hurtful & hateful tweets and comments to and about Guy, why not send him information on the subject so he can become better educated?

December 1, 2013 at 9:52 pm
(164) Nicole says:

SO much hate towards people that want the story to continue and will not judge someone until they actually act at least one screen. I am giving Guy a chance!!
Chandler was not crying at the Chicago event and he did not seem sad to me at all! He maybe feel asleep at dinner because it was a long day because soon after he was at a club partying it up not sleeping.. Get real people.. He is not hurting for money he is from a family that has tons of it and he will do much better then DAYS as a actor if he wants that……….Also Days final won an Emmy for best daytime soap and moments after that their biggest actor announces he is leaving.. maybe that was a slap in their face and maybe after that the relationship was not the best.. I

December 1, 2013 at 10:08 pm
(165) Victoria says:

Oh dear Nicole another one who claims they know the whole situation thinking Chandler would tell them everything the day after he was fired. Several fans at Chicago heard and told others of people saying bad things about Chandler behind his back funny how all of them love Guy now and some don’t even care about Chandler anymore. Wonder if those people realise meeting a celeb once doesn’t mean you know them and doesn’t mean you can read their minds at how they are feeling deep down.

December 1, 2013 at 10:12 pm
(166) Sharon says:

Sure Nicole like we haven’t seen the pics from Chicago where Chandler was on his phone alot and almost crying at times. I’m guessing you were around him all day then and about the club didn’t some fans whinge about him being there or is that just gossip from fans who were there?

December 1, 2013 at 10:17 pm
(167) John Seip says:

Thank U Victoria for proving my point. U say meeting Chandler once doesnt mean U know him deep down. That I agree with. I say the same goes for Guy. No one here has met him yet and dont know him deep down from his tweets, so how can anyone say for sure he is anti gay and a bully?

Think about that

December 1, 2013 at 10:22 pm
(168) Jay says:

John I don’t understand why sending information to Guy is going to help much if he is like a grown adult taking on a gay role and doesn’t get it then he’s a lost cause. I hope that makes sense as to why so many dont like his attitude. Repeat John his attitude and his beliefs. He doesnt represent himself well at all

December 1, 2013 at 10:25 pm
(169) John Seip says:

Thats fine & I respect you and anyone for having those feelings. However, tweeting Guy hateful statements isnt gonna help matters at all. I hope U understand that and that is what im mad about. It just makes us all look like immature idiots

December 1, 2013 at 10:26 pm
(170) Victoria says:

Chandler Massey or Freddie Smith never made antigay or hurtful comments before they aired. Guy Wilson did and has several times therefore he is not fit to play a gay role.The fact we know he is capable of thinking bad things and writing them now means he will always have that baggage with him. So how about you think why everyone has to give him a chance after everything that has happened

December 1, 2013 at 10:29 pm
(171) John Seip says:


everyone makes mistakes. Hopefully this was a mistake & Guy learns and grows from this

Why keep hating someone, wishing them ill will, making fun of them and sending hate tweets?

What purpose does that serve?

To me that just shows me that those that accuse guy of intolerance and hate or no better than what they accuse Guy of doing & being

December 1, 2013 at 10:58 pm
(172) Clark says:

Maybe some male respondents on this thread are not anymore gay than Guy Wilson is and why they defend him so stridently because they believe and agree with what he has said. Straighter than straight. Wolves in sheep’s clothing. Freddie and Chandler are platinum and platinum. Is Guy similar or just pewter? We don’t yet, but of 1-episodes shows I have seen him in, there isn’t a platinum mine to be found anywhere! My belief and opinion. Scenario. You pay big bucks to get a primo seat at a high demand Broadway play/show only to find the lead actor has been replaced by an understudy for your performance. Personally, I always feel initially let down and disappointed. Same correlation applies here. Until I see the understudy, who failed to evade prior audition cuts for the same show, when I am familiar with the name and talent of work of the main star perform to see what “Underdog” is capable of. I am going to be skeptical and critical of his performance.
Because someone follows another person on twitter does not make them allies. Keep your friends close and your enemies closer. I have never seen anyone use the “hate” towards Guy Wilson. I just see one person throw the word out like a broken record who doesn’t agree with his opinions.
Words can be semantics. Fired, discharged, let go, etc. Blah, blah, blah. Bottom line. Chandler left the meeting in tears. Emotionally upset. WHY? As it appears he was open to being let out of his contract early if assumed to be true. Why all the emotional pain on his way being escorted out of the studio? What else did Meng throw at Chandler in the meeting? A relevant question that deserves an answer.

December 1, 2013 at 11:27 pm
(173) TJohnson says:

I hope NBC has the maracas to make this a church wedding or at least have Father Eric wed Will and Sonny. Can’t wait to see how decked out they are for their wedding. :-) :-)

December 1, 2013 at 11:35 pm
(174) Clark says:

With all due respect can you please post a reply that doesn’t use the H word or any variation of it? Can you do that?? At least try to use it just once in a reply. Baby steps as the baby photo. All you are doing is attacking everyone else who does not high step to your opinion. Nothing constructive that is verifiable documentation that puts Guy Wilson in a positive credible light. Thank you.

December 1, 2013 at 11:36 pm
(175) John Seip says:

I believe what Chandler tod Michael Logan at TV Guide

He told Days he was leaving & asked to leave early, Chandler said that he and Days agreed as soon as a recast was found he would exit.

Yes Chandler did admit he didnt expect a recast to be found so soon but that’s what can happen when it comes to recasts.

I dont doubt Chandler was upset cause he didnt get to say goodbye to castmates but he asked to leave early and they agreed he would when a recast was found. They found Guy, Chandkler got his request.

IMO that is not a firing

December 1, 2013 at 11:38 pm

(179) Vicky says:

I’m giddy with excitement! Why? Because the WilSon love story will continue, and THAT is what matters most to me personally! Change is hard, to be sure, but change doesn’t have to be bad. In fact, change CAN be good. I have very much enjoyed Chandler and Freddie as WilSon, but I’m also anxious to see how the character and storyline will evolve with Guy in the role. Of course, I have no way to know whether or not I will like Guy as Will, nor can I be sure that I will like him paired with Freddie. But based on what I have seen of Guy’s work so far, and on how amazing Freddie is, I am feeling REALLY optimistic about both! Now, if we could just do something about the mediocre writing. In my opinion, THAT is what folks should be bitching about. Long love WilSon! :-)

December 2, 2013 at 2:23 am
(180) BJ says:

John you would believe anything like so many believe you seem to enjoy accuse others of spreading hate simply because they don’t like someone who also spreads and supports hate.

Everyone is curious to know if you are on set all the time with what you say. It’s pretty much public knowledge that Guy Wilson and Freddie did a test the day before Chandler was fired. It was a firing so stop trying to defend Guy, defend Days and defend your need for attention.

Chandler did not get his request as he wanted a wedding with Freddie and Freddie didn’t get his as he didn’t want a recast and neither did Corday. So I guess if you are happy with that you will be happy with anything in life. I just wonder if Guy doesn’t start getting his requests what will happen and how he will handle it

December 2, 2013 at 3:15 am
(181) Clark says:

Come on. You see both sides? You know you only want people to see one side- your side. You attack and accuse others that they are wrong never giving a constructive or validated response to their questions an comments that upset your hormones. You and your fan group can’t handle diversity of opinion of constrictive dialogue. “.^ ^..-ans” threatens members in cap letters, tries to limit and control the course of a thread, ban people, and threaten those who don’t high step to the admins. You know that to be true and I know it to be true. Let’s talk about the word “hate” you enjoy saying all the time. I’ll go thru this thread and let you know how many times you have used it or any variation of. OK? The chat, lies, and twisted truths on your site tonight are hysterical. So Communist East European. haha Talking about other competing groups and members. It follows your philosophy on this page. I have to really wonder if you are gay or not. Honestly. For “our team,” I hope you are not. FYI, I am not in the Cheddie group as I do not agree with their philosophy. And is your profile picture an accurate pictures of a 4 year old child? I have to assume that is the real you. Again, nothing but constant personal attacks from you to so many here instead of constructive verifiable facts as to the incredible awesome actor and person you “know” Guy Wilson is. Why? Because you don’t have any. I’ll make a deal with you. I’ll stop being a “hypocrite” when you stop acting like a whiny four year old and grow up. Agree? You’re “done here” because you are out of brain matter and common sense.

I wouldn’t be surprised if this was a way to write off Will/Sonny. Previously I would’ve been upset by that happening, but at this point, I wouldn’t and wouldn’t even be surprised. They are such a non entity on the show and marriage is a kiss of death on this show, so it just might happen.

I’ve also notice on many message boards I’ve visited that many people have stopped posting and as time went on, have either stopped watching or will stop come January. Don’t blame them. Wonder how that will affect what they do with Will/Sonny

(183) George says:

Freddie isn’t worried about fans embracing the new Will? While there are supporters, there are also a large sum who aren’t supportive or excited. Get to know your audience, cause i really think he will be surprised how many people stop watching/supporting once he airs.

(184) cherry says:

Nicole (Loar.) is one of the example of .what could do the fans to defend GW… 1 attack freddie and say that he recorded a homophobe video
2 say that chan was not sad in Chicago when the whole world has seen the pictures of that event …. maybe what that bother to you and to your friend michelle was that chan didnt give you the attention that you wanted (chandler is smart) we all know what you all have tried to do in chicago (shameful)
Happy that chan is no longer part of this crap

Helllll noooo, I will not watch a wedding that doesn’t include Chandler and has this recast. Nope.

Omg! It’s a tv show & everyone is talking like it’s personal! The show is just that, a tv show! Get a life of your own! Seriously!

December 3, 2013 at 5:06 am
(187) Brady says:

Omg Teresa if its just a tv show and nothing more what are you doing here bitching? It’s actually about more than just tv characters its about the livelihoods and situations of people who play the characters. I’m sure you are smart enough to realise that. Seriously! If people don’t care and they don’t watch the show doesn’t go on therefore people are out of a job. Again I’m sure you can realise that.

December 3, 2013 at 7:46 pm
(188) Clark says:

I have to plead ignorant here. Chandler’s near and dear project is The Trevor Project. He wrote in this year’s Columbus, OH Gay Pride Parade. Freddie has campaigned against bullying before Congress. Both have done NoH posters. Has Guy Wilson ever done a No8 poster/pic? What social activist projects has he been in and currently involved in? I believe there was an attempt recently to frame an anti-bullying aura around his birthday. I think his Ralph’s tweets doomed the deal on that. I haven’t heard a thing about it.

December 3, 2013 at 9:05 pm
(189) Mike says:

I can’t believe someone hasn’t pointed out that using terms like (tranny) are very commonplace in the gay community. As was mentioned NPH used it, as has Adam Lambert on more than one occasion. I think it’s pretty obvious he felt comfortable using that term, as he most likely does belong to the same community. If you pay attention, it’s very obvious.

(190) Clark says:

With all due respect, did jump to the late 2013 from 2010? I don’t know where in the world you live, but you appear to have no knowledge of the LGBT community in America. Are you even gay or just “gay” as Guy Wilson? Headline news throughout the summer of 2012! The “T” word now equates to the “F” word. The transgendered community in Los Angeles is currently on a campaign to stop the local drag queens from using the word. It’s a slang/slur word. It’s insulting and flippant. The T community woke up and did a revaluation after they were discarded from the original ENDA bill in 2012. They were considered to be “collateral damage” to get the bill passed that will not go thru the GOP House anyway. Barney Frank even considered it acceptable. So much for our “middle name” of “equality” when it comes to marriage. If equality isn’t tagged to all aspects and all members of the GLBT community and what we are fighting for, then we are saying we are no better than those who oppose us.

December 4, 2013 at 1:31 am
(191) PJ says:

I think what a lot of people are forgetting here is Guy Wilson was always going to get flack for being a recast especially with how despicable the whole situation went down. Taking that aside and knowing he was not going to do any publicity before January he had to make himself appeal to fans through one source and one source only. But he screwed himself up and made it extremely difficult for fans to relate to him – firstly it was the arrogance he showed by getting the part and making some very bold and unproven claims. Then he graduated to making a complete ass of himself with the hate tweets and taking life forever to apologise for them. Everything is riding on him and Freddie to make this work. There is no back up plan! Forget about a stupid fake wedding making gay marriage seem like a sham and pointless but if this doesn’t work the story is dead, if it isn’t already in people’s minds. A few online trying to claim that it definitely will work is nowhere near the entire days viewership and if the targeted audience for this new pairing is so divided it doesn’t bode well for the future. One storyline which is not confirmed rather just more gossip, a plot development denied to the actors who made the story mind you is in no way a guarantee that days will make it to the next renewal update let alone beyond. So much happens on and off the show so don’t understand what is so special about this one unconfirmed plot especially when we are talking about Salem here and days of our lives writers.

(194) John Seip says:

Im just sickened by the GLEE some so called fans here have over the this.

They seem to want Guy to fail and revel in the negative publicity he could get. People want him fired. Also want Freddie to quit and Days to be canned Cause Guy will be Will soon.

Then there are tweets to Guy that he is ugly, fat etc. Yeah and you guys talk being anti hate. I guess anti hate only works when it affects you.

You all should be ashamed that you jate on someone no one here has ever met over a TWEET or two

No one knows Guy deep dowwn or chandler or Freddie for that manner and shouldnt be judging them like they do.

(196) Brady says:

For someone who wants evidence of Guys bigotry and intolerance Id like to see your evidence of people tweeting that Guy is ‘fat’ and ‘ugly’.

Perhaps you should be ashamed John of accusing others of ‘hate’ as you do every single comment to make it seem like you are right but hey you seem to enjoy the fact days cast a bigot for a gay role someone who supposedly is going to be part of soap history and someone who does NOTHING for the gay community

But hey John keep trying to push your agenda on everyone else it wont work people have their opinions and so many will give up a few in favour of him is nothing compared to how all other days viewers will respond or fans not on social media not to mention sponsors and media

December 4, 2013 at 5:48 pm
(197) Clark says:

I do not tweet or really participate on Twitter. i can’t confirm the tweets you are stating. When have you ever seen an unknown star coming onto a prime time show as a new actor/character or a daytime show. getting this much hype? Please name one. It also insults and demeans Chandler as he is still airing thru the end of the month. Manners and respect is an endangered species in this country. GW fans prove that to me. He has the role on our screens starting in January, not since this past September.
Did you throw up green pea soup before writing your reply? I think so! haha Probably an ill educated challenged brain washed person as well. I hones feel sorry and pity you. You disgrace humanity, evolution, and intelligence. Satan is proud of you today! Go make yourself a hot beverage. haha

December 4, 2013 at 5:54 pm
(198) Sammy says:

Anyone who has seen this new guy before knows his acting his horrible must have done some major begging to get this role just give up days viewers will turn off and they will end up killing the characters off or it will become more and more boring as it has for so long

So you can only answer back with insults.

Yeah so much for wanting no hate

Major Coverup

Guy has credits. 28 is not that old and some actors dont get known to a later age

All this animosity for GW makes me laugh especially since it has become pathetic

Now we want Days to crash & Burn?

Do you know what “Fan” Means???

December 4, 2013 at 9:07 pm
(204) Brady says:

Do you know what ‘fan’ means??

It’s about the integrity of the story being ruined and the humiliation towards actors and the complete lack of respect for their opinions but as long as a nobody gets praised for nothing he has done in the role except cause trouble and make people angry then it must be ok

It will crash and burn

December 4, 2013 at 9:43 pm
(205) Mike says:

@ Clark Semantics sir. If you know so much of the gay community, you also know that the term is still widely used there. There may be a campaign against it’s use, but that does not preclude members from using the terminology. I run across it weekly, as I am sure you would know as you have inside knowledge obviously. So can you also confirm GW’s perference? Can you say without a doubt he isn’t a member of said community?

December 5, 2013 at 1:20 am
(206) Jason says:

Looks like i’ll stop watching. It won’t be Wilson to me anymore

December 5, 2013 at 2:31 pm
(207) Clark says:

JWS=John Westley Seip. That was easy. No hate directed at you, and PLEASE, again, read my replies clearly. You obviously did not again. I countered back to obvious bigot below your comment that we see on the Days Fan Page all the time regarding WilSon. I do stand up for the GLBT community at times. Silence =Death. You appear to have a support, identification, and passion for a straight person- Guy Wilson. I have never written or want that Days should crash and burn and dissolve from the air. The shows producers and writers appear to be doing that all on their own. Group pages. No one seems to be happy with any of the current SLs. I have never stated I will stop watching “Days” in January. I am vested in all the story line. I always do that when I watch a soap. WilSon is my preferred couple on the show as I think their writings in scripts have out shined in quality to any of the others characters on the show. The scripts for Teresa’s parents seems from the 1980′s with the current crop of 1980′s writers brought back earlier this year. News flash. The 1980′s was 30 years ago. Soap watchers and TV watchers in general have matured, have more options than 3 channels, and demand more. Cable shows out shine in quality now in what viewers want than networks are allowed to do. Do the math. There was a backlash in early spring when WilSon seemed to be mutating towards just being “roommates” from viewers perceptions. Wilson had one bedroom scene in November. The last one was in mid March- 8 months ago. do not tag me in your generalities unless you have supportable documentation to say so.

December 5, 2013 at 2:33 pm
(208) Clark says:

Mike, You little snipes are not un-noted, Sir. I have no idea where you live or associations you have to hear first-hand the word used all the time. It could be at a Sarah Palin rally for all I know. My “inside knowledge” comes from a variety of media sources I read and listen to everyday that I have for years. Those sources are available to you. I have no idea where you get your information. Yes, I do know a few transgendered people in the LA community. The word is not “may.” There IS a campaign to have the word eliminated and not in as common use as it is today. Your last two questions. I am sure Seip can answer the first one. Wilson’s pattern of tweets, and most recent ones, on public record appears to show he has no qualm about using the word. Whether you accept it or not, Wilson upset and hurt a lot of people that I have first hand knowledge about. The reaction alone should tell you that. Your last question makes no rational sense to me or what its inference means, so I cannot comment.

Looks like the show will be cancelled very soon as it sounds like no one is happy hope its painful for them

December 7, 2013 at 4:24 am
(210) Clark says:

Chandler said, ” It began at the Emmy’s, where I commented that I want to go back to school, which I do, and everyone just assumed I’m leaving,” Massey explains. “This is what I meant! My contract is up in December. Right now, I will tell you that no decision has been made. I will weigh all my options and hopefully work it all out. I will tell you, I love the show. I love the story and Will. No matter what decision I make, Will is always going to be a part of my life. But at this moment, nothing is official.”
August 2 this year

10 days later Freddie says he thinks he will stay. “thought.”
Then the sad, unfair news hit.

December 9, 2013 at 10:01 pm
(211) Jordan says:

Oh my God! What if the unthinkable happens? What if Guy is really talented and does a great job as Will? And, what if he and Freddie are amazing together? What if they are better than any of us ever imagined? Oh crap! Another successful portrayal of a gay couple on a US daytime soap? How horrible! Who needs that?

December 10, 2013 at 12:27 am
(212) Brady says:

LOL there is no chance whatsoever Guy has talent its all a set up to eventually break Will and Sonny up anyone can see hiring this idiot is the worst mistake days has ever made. It will be so fake and ridiculous and then Freddie will want out they’ll probably want to recast Sonny and fans will start hating on Freddie Guy will continue to make hateful comments and before long days will be over

December 10, 2013 at 12:56 am
(213) Brady says:

Exactly Jordan “another … gay couple” its a different couple altogether its not the same as you cant believe it. If it aint there its not Will and Sonny therefore people with eyes will see it dislike it and switch off when its already been a disaster for months on and off the set it will just more than likely continue next year if it lasts that long

December 11, 2013 at 1:58 am
(214) Clark says:

Guy Wilson is no “spring chicken” in the acting business. He has been acting since 2004 with no major consistent or memorable roles. The vast majority of his work is only of minor characters in 1-episode TV shows and far down the list of actors in movie roles he has done. Chandler came on six years later as a super nova much to our delight and benefit. To my knowledge no one is knowledgeable or familiar with Wilson’s or his library of work before he was accepted for playing Will Horton. Moot point. Whether he can adjust to the fast paced and demanding acting schedule that the Days actors have to adhere to with the number of days and memorization of the volume of lines in a very short period of time remains to be seen.

December 11, 2013 at 5:22 am
(215) Charlie says:

Guy who? Is this some kind of a sick joke they should have just killed Will off or let Freddie go this is so wrong they don’t even care about Chandler at all

December 12, 2013 at 7:00 am
(216) Sandra says:

I’m sorry but it’s not going to work with Guy as Will. TPTB say that he will bring a more older mature side to Will but that is not the appeal of the character it’s his insecurities and vulnerability and his dynamic with Sonny who provides the rational secure maturity in the relationship that makes this couple attractive. Every1 can support Guy all they like but I have a very strong feeling u will be disappointed.

December 12, 2013 at 6:00 pm
(217) Jay says:

Guy Wilson has no chance of making this work don’t see the point of recasting at all

(218) Marge says:

I have watched,”DAYS for 35-40 years, why do the writers need to always bring in a story line about “GAYS”…..can’t they write a story line that is good, and not about “GAYS”…..”.SICKENING” not a good subject
to listen to every day…….Thanks

December 27, 2013 at 12:24 am
(219) Clark says:

What is SICKENING are the destructive antiquated comments from dinosaurs as you, Marge. It will truly be a joyous day in America when your sub- species die off the planet. WilSon is the one true love story on Days. It always has been. You don’t appear to like yourself or humanity. I pity you with you bigotry (probably racism ) and stupidly. You bring disgraced and shame to Ametica as (#130) “Tommy.” That name in and if itself is a little light in the closet loafers.

January 10, 2014 at 7:24 pm
(220) Lee says:

“Guy Wilson is a phenomenal actor…” Are you kidding? We have seen his previous work. We have seen him as Will. Phenomenal? It would be pushing it to say he is even mediocre.
Maybe DOOL wanted WilSon to fail. Maybe they needed a way out and just found it.
