James Scott, Days of our Lives, EJ DiMera

Since leaving NBC’s “Days of our Lives” earlier this year, actor James Scott (ex-EJ DiMera) reteamed with singer Roxanna for her music video “Here with Me,” following their 2012 collaboration, “Unforgotten,” and now the actor is one of several cast members in Audible’s free 1 hour and 13 minute long audio dramatization that vividly imagines and reenacts the famous, impromptu World War I Christmas Eve truce declared by rank-and-file British and German soldiers in 1914. The release commemorates the 100th anniversary of said truce.

Nearly two months after filming completed, singer Roxanna has released the full music video for her single, “Here with Me,” the highly anticipated prequel to 2012’s “Unforgotten.” Both music videos feature former “Days of our Lives” star James Scott (ex-EJ DiMera), who described his character as being “…a little bit more refined, more of a James Cagney type character.” He noted, “there is a real elegance and beauty to this story. It has a much more romantic sensibility, much more fantasy… It is less intense in terms of the overt physical dynamic between the two characters, but I think that the underplay of the relationship between the two is actually much, much more intense.”

Sharing sex scenes with some of the hottest men in daytime must be a tough gig, but someone’s got to do it. And (un)lucky for the rest of us, “Days of our Lives’” Kate Mansi (Abigail Deveraux) is the actress who’s been called upon for the gig. First she got Chad (then played by Casey Deidrick, now played by Billy Flynn), then she got EJ (James Scott), and now she’s got Ben (Robert Scott Wilson). But where has this bad boy bonanza left her burgeoning alter ego? Soap Opera Network spoke with Mansi to find out!

Several “Days of our Lives” stars have speculated on the changing shape of the NBC sudser now that James Scott (EJ) and Alison Sweeney (Sami) — two front burner, leading characters — have left the canvas. The chess pieces have been moving, giving other Salemites a chance to shine. And Soap Opera Network can report that Bryan Dattilo’s Lucas is one of the characters who’s been given the chance to step up to the plate!

It’s hard enough keeping a good man down, but try keeping a bad man down. It’s impossible, as proven by “Days of our Lives” Stefano DiMera. Though the hits keep on coming for the patriarch, he’ll make like Sia and remain bulletproof, nothing to lose, as they fire away, fire away. And his portrayer, Joseph Mascolo, seems to share the cavalier attitude — at least when it comes to certain aspects of the storyline that ushered James Scott’s EJ off the canvas and Billy Flynn’s version of Chad onto the screen.

While the full music video has yet to be released, and we’re sure it’ll be well worth the wait, Soap Opera Network has your first look at Roxanna‘s newest music video featuring former “Days of our Lives” star James Scott (ex-EJ DiMera), entitled “Here With Me.” The song features Grammy award winning trumpeter, Chris Botti, who has recently made headlines everywhere for his emotional national anthem performance, as Roxanna and Scott’s characters ignite their passion in the prequel to their 2012 “Unforgotten” collaboration.
