Here is the current list of contract characters with my picks: Morgan Freeman as Abe Carver Hillary Duff as Abigail Deveraux Christian Bale as Austin Reed Edward Norton as Bo Brady Jake Gyllenhaal as Brady Black Jane Fonda as Caroline Brady Gwyneth Paltrow as Carrie Brady Reed Ethan Hawke as Dr. Daniel Jonas Jada Pinkett Smith as Dr. Lexie Carver Jonathan Rhys Meyers as E.J. DiMera Selena Gomez as Gabi Hernandez Julia Roberts as Hope Brady Jim Carry as Jack Deveraux Asher Book as Jackson “Sonny” Kiriakis Heather Locklear as Jennifer Horton Deveraux Tom Cruise as John Black Sigourney Weaver as Kate Roberts DiMera Scarlett Johansson as Madison James Susan Sarandon as Maggie Horton Meryl Streep as Dr. Marlena Evans Katie Cassidy as Melanie Jonas Charlize Theron as Nicole Walker DiMera Orlando Bloom as Quinn Hudson Eddie Cibrian as Rafe Hernandez Kevin Costner as Roman Brady Kate Hudson as Sami Brady Sean Connery as Stefano DiMera Anthony Hopkins as Victor Kiriakis Jeremy Sumpter as Will Horton Tobey Maguire as Lucas Roberts Marisa Tomei as Billie Reed And just because we want her back Angela Bassett as Celeste Perrault December 24, 2011 at 4:08 am #438275 marknsprmo 407 Posts Poor Tom Cruise is way too young for this role with these actors. What about Kurt Russel as John Black. And isn’t Heather Locklear too slutty for sweet Jen? They do look similar but personality counts too! I like Jim Carrey as Jack though! Julia as Hope is perfect. But if Edward Norton is Bo, I am not sure about that! Matthew Mcconaughhey as Bo sounds about right to me. And I would switch Sean Connery and Anthony Hopkins roles. Anthony has that depth of evil that is required for Stephano. Sean plays a more straight forward person such as Victor. Plus I can see him with Maggie. I would also like to throw in Jobeth Williams as Marlena. To throw in another character Shirley MacClaine as Vivian Allamain. Fun topic and pretty good cast though! December 27, 2011 at 6:10 pm #438429 nolanspice 6 Posts This is a fun casting idea. Thanks David. I agree with most, except for a few recast of my own… Sami Brady: Recast Kate Hudson with Emily van Camp (Revenge). I have yet to see Kate nail a “bitch” part, yet. Marlena Evans: Recast Meryl Streep with Jane Fonda. Caroline Brady: Now that Jane has moved over, let’s put Cloris Leachman in this role. John Black: Recast Tom Cruise (too young/”young-looking”) with Harrison Ford. More age-appropriate with my choice for Marlena. Jennifer Horton Devereaux: Recast Heather Locklear with Jennifer Aniston. Abby Devereaux: Recast Hilary Duff with Ellen Page. I like the idea of swapping Antony Hopkins and Sean Connery in the patriarchal roles. The Abe/Lexie pairing has ALWAYS creeped me out because of the age difference. The fantasy casting here, just exacerbates that! [ICK factor all over it!] This is it for now, unless I get inspired… December 30, 2011 at 4:29 pm #438697 Terry_Gyimah 183 Posts Sami Brady- Kate Hudson Carrie Brady- Reese Witherspoon Austin Reed- Mark Wahlberg Rafe Hernandez- Eddie Cibrian Gabi Hernandez- Selena Gomez Will Horton- Jeremy Sumpter Lucas Horton- Joaquin Phoenix Billie Reed- Angelina Jolie Victor Kiriakis- Anthony Hopkins Stefano DiMera- Frank Langella Roman Brady- Jeff Bridges Quinn Hudson- Sam Worthington Nicole Walker DiMera- Cameron Diaz Melanie Jonas- Evan Rachel Wood Dr. Marlena Evans- Bo Derek Maggie Horton- Shirley MacLaine Madison James- Kate Beckinsale Kate Roberts DiMera- Sigourney Weaver John Black- Harrison Ford Jennifer Horton Deveraux- Jennifer Aniston Jackson “Sonny” Kiriakis- Asher Book Jack Deveraux- Tom Cruise Hope Williams Brady- Julia Roberts E.J.

Bo Derrick as Marlena though I would have to chew on for a minute! Physically yes that is pretty good but is her acting up to par with the rest of your cast? Especially as the lead! I would think that Morgan Freeman instead of Denzel. I don’t think of Abe as being as handsome as Denzel. But I do see him as this truly authentic deep voiced character like a Morgan Freeman character. And I think Tom is way too old to play Bo Brady.
