A Whole Bunch of Casting

Days has put out casting calls for a whole slew of short-term roles. More info behind the cut…

According to Soap Opera Digest:

The first is Mark, who is described as a gorgeous, 17 or 18-year-old popular jock whose father is a strict judge, which makes Mark rebellious. Hal is a 38-45 gorgeous man who is the father of an 19-year old girl. Clark is a 38-46-year old who is described as a “hot bad boy.” Simone is a beautiful hippie chick in her late 30s. The show is seeking someone who is African American, Hispanic or Asian for this recurring role. Judge Avery is a 50-to-55-year old judge who finds his property vandalized by teenagers. Finally, Dr. Robinson is a 40-to-50-year old psychiatrist, who will be either African American or Asian.

Doesn’t sound like anything too huge, but it’ll be interesting in six months (or whenever this material actually airs) to see who these people wind up being. “Mark” sounds kind of like the original version of Chad, and it’s interesting that “Hal” is said to have a 19-year-old daughter but we haven’t seen any casting for that character. Makes me wonder if they’re casting a contract role as a love interest for JJ…

    Judge Avery and Mark sound like a father-son duo that was suppose to arrive in Salem circa June 2011 when Higley was still there, but I believe they were African American and a principal. I wouldn’t be surprised if Hal’s daughter isn’t for Joey, a contract player related to both Claire and Ciara. Have they really not casted someone for Joey to play off yet?

    Based on this, I suspect Chase is gone. What a shame. This show doesn’t know how to develop anything longterm anymore.

    I cannot imagine where Simone or Clark will fit in, but the show is going to be so different in six months who knows what will be happening.

      I remember that casting call. The son was also supposed to be a baseball player, I think. It popped up a few more times before Paul finally appeared, so I think the idea might have morphed along the way…

      The actor who plays teenage Chase still seems to be filming, going by social media. I’m really curious to know what they plan to do pairing-wise with all the kids, since Joey can’t be with either of the girls, Ciara and Chase are being played as siblings, etc.

    i, like most people, are not very good with change. i am not looking forward to all these new folks, no matter how long they stay….. this is just too much. for me.

    • underyourwing Says:

      oh jeez AM NOT AM NOT……….

    • mykleraus Says:

      I’m assuming most of these will be roles the size of Dr. Chyka or Kyle Southern, the kind where they only exist to push story for the ‘real’ characters and don’t really have to invest in them.

      • underyourwing Says:

        why don’t they do their freaking jobs and use the real characters to push their cray cray stories forward? i expect too much.

      • mykleraus Says:

        Hahahaha. I don’t really mind because I know they need some bit characters to flesh stuff out, and sometimes the actors wind up being good and I actually want them to get more to do (like T or Maxine or Anne).

    yesh you are right…..gotta have the extras and background unknowns to take up empty space…..which in that case they should stuff a few into some heads i will leave unnamed to protect the emptied headed….
