Forbes March Headed To DAYS?

Could it be, can it be? According to Soap Opera Digest, Forbes March was seen on the Days of Our Lives set around the same time that Galen Gering and Eric Martsolf were in for a reading. Now, we all know what roles Gering and Martsolf landed, but does this mean the former One Life To Life star will sign on as the missing Eric Brady, twin to  Alison Sweeney's Sami?

Does this mean that the Days brass has been reading the postings of the Daytime Confidential fans? Many of the readers, including myself, have voiced the opinion that March would be the perfect recast of Eric Brady, the role vacated by Supernatural star Jensen Ackles. Our Jamey had him pegged for a wishful casting along with Noelle Beck and look how that turned out.

Would you like to see him on Days or another ABC soap?
