Days of Our Lives: Thaao Penghlis Signs Long Term Deal



While unconfirmed sources have one DiMera out, another is here to stay, for the next two years anyone. TV Guide Canada's Nelson Branco is reporting that Thaao Penghlis (Tony) has inked a new two year deal with the embattled sudser. Penghlis was recently nominated for the Emmy for his dual roles of suave Tony and his psychotic cousin Andre last year. There is still no confirmation from Days brass, concerning the fate of Penghlis's onscreen pop Joe Mascolo (Stefano).

I don't like him. I really wish Tony and Anna would be sent packing--they add nothing to the show.

Penghlis should have never returned after Aremid.

If he's signed a 2 year deal, does this mean that Days is in the clear until 2010?

No. The length of an actor's contract is not an indication of whether or not the show will continue on.

Nope, Tom Eplin had years on his AW contract with P&G when that show was canceled, which is why he was moved over to ATWT. He had a play or pay clause which basically said even if the show got canceled, he would be paid to the end of his contract.

Well, every actor at Days needs to have that and maybe we can keep the show on, but I highly doubt that it's going anywhere. It's been 2 months since we were supposed to get word, but nothing has happened. No news is good news, so...

Even if Days is cancelled soon, it will continue to air through May 2009.

I highly doubt that Days is going anywhere. Frons would snatch it up if anything. If that happens, I just don't want it going to half an hr.
