Recasting pivotal roles always comes with a rollercoaster of equal parts praise and equal parts critique, but “Days of our Lives’” decision to recast the role of Will in what seemed like mere moments after the announcement that Chandler Massey was departing the role has seen rumblings closer to an earthquake than a mere thrill ride. Viewers have questioned whether the show’s decision to bring Guy Wilson in was a way to stick it to Massey for leaving the role he’d made popular over the last three years, and some even questioned why Massey was leaving the show in the first place. The Backlot, an online publication that calls itself the corner of Hollywood and gay, managed to snag an interview with “DAYS” co-executive producer, Greg Meng, to get the inside scoop!

“Days of our Lives’” alum Eric Winter (ex-Rex DiMera) may spend a lot of his time filming Lifetime’s “Witches of East End,” but when he and his wife, Rosalyn Sanchez (“Devious Maids”), heard about a new venture their friend, George Valencia, was starting with Judy Reyes (“Devious Maids”), they had to sign up. The project? An animated children’s show called “La Golda,” which features an 8-year-old orphan with two passions: soccer and building a better world for kids.

“Days of our Lives” actor Drake Hogestyn (John Black) delivered a very happy Halloween treat to fans today: He tweeted confirmation that he is indeed returning to the NBC sudser!

“Happy All Hallow’s Eve!” he wrote. “The Treat?…I’m back in Salem!”

But the Trick? “I sold my house and have no place to live!” he shares. “Now that’s scary! Yikes!”

A rep for the show was unable to comment on Hogetyn’s return, but as we reported earlier this month, since the sudser tapes about four months ahead, fans can expect to see John onscreen some time in early 2014.

In the meantime, Soap Opera Network wishes the actor luck in finding a new place to hang his hat!
