Days of our Lives
During today's "A Day of Days" fan event at Universal CityWalk Hollywood, actor Freddie Smith shared with Soap Opera Network that Guy Wilson will replace Chandler Massey in the role of Will Horton beginning in January 2014. The actor noted that viewers will see Chandler one day and the next day they'll see Guy (ie. Will is not leaving town only to return played by a new actor).

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!

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.
