Former head writer James E. Reilly handpicked James Scott, when he was casting the role of EJ Wells, who would later be revealed as EJ DiMera, on Days of Our Lives. It's easy to see why. Not only does Scott possess matinee idol good looks, but he's also a consummate actor. Since debuting on the show in 2006, Scott's emerged as one of Days' most popular leading men. Whether he's romancing Sami, reconnecting with Nicole, or manipulating the citizens of Salem, his portrayal of EJ is always captivating. Check out the photo gallery of Scott, dating back to his Days' premiere in 2006 and including his mustached stint as Stefano’s father, Santo DiMera.
