Rumors had been swirling all weekend and now Soap Opera Digest is reporting that former "All My Children" actor, and "The Price is Right" male model, Robert Scott Wilson (ex-Pete Cortlandt) has joined the cast of NBC's "Days of our Lives" as a recast Ben Rogers. He replaces daytime newcomer Justin Gaston, who in real-life is married to "The Young and the Restless'" Melissa Ordway (Abby Newman).
Best known for his singing stints in "Nashville Star" and "If I Can Dream," country music singer and actor Justin Gaston has joined the cast of NBC's "Days of our Lives" in the contract role of Ben, who a casting call from last summer described as "early-to-mid 20s... midwestern or southern (very slight southern accent) country boy. He is utterly charming in his honest sincere approach to life and love. Ben can also sing and/or play the guitar, though it is not necessary." The actor began filming scenes in mid-October and will first air later this month.
