Rumors that former General Hospital star Greg Vaughan will be recreating the role of Sami Brady's (Alison Sweeney) twin brother Eric (last played by Supernatural star Jensen Ackles) on Days of Our Lives continue to intensify. Soap Opera Digest—which reported in the pages of their print magazine that Vaughan was up for the part awhile back—had an item earlier this week on their website concerning a Hallmark movie Sweeney and Vaughan are doing together. The item also mentioned the Eric Brady rumors.
Nelson Branco posted an item in his Soap Opera Uncensored publication stating sources were telling him Vaughan's DAYS casting is a done deal. Branco is also reporting that Eileen Davidson is definitely returning to DAYS. The recently ousted The Young and the Restless star helped DAYS skyrocket in the Nielsens during the 90's as Kristen Blake/Susan Banks et al.
As with the Vaughan story, Soap Opera Digest has been reporting on DAYS' interest in Davidson for some time now. The NBC sudser has yet to confirm either bit of casting news.
