  • What ever happened to JKJ?

    Was just thinking about the potential for a Philip Kiriakis return and Jay Kenneth Johnson. Anyone know what he's up to these days? He seems to keep a super low profile and doesn't appear to have done any acting since 2015...

    JKJ quit Days for the second time, years ago. Heard that few years ago, he was doing a movie or something. He had long hair and a beard. Reminds me of Brad Pitt. Days could ask him back again...but they are fearing that he might not be interested.

      If Days can't get him back as Philip, I think Jacob Young would be a good choice for a recast.

      I think it was allegedly said somewhere several years back that when JKJ was asked if he would ever go back to Days. That JKJ had said that he would never go back to work for Days again and that a few factors as to why being that he claims that he was treated terribly by the show and by Ken Corday.

        I think he quit the second time to try out for Hollywood again. He just wanted to become big, like Jensen Ackles, but it was not in his cards. He should be lucky if Days are considering him back.

      The last Philip was played by John-Paul Lavoisier who in my opinion, did a great job. The writers need to keep the central characters in the thick of things and stop getting rid of them after a few weeks. I don't blame JKJ for not wanting to come back.

        The cast is limited by a limited budget. They have to save returns for special occasions and make it very temporary. They cannot have big events with the entire cast because of cost. Not to mention production and all it entails behind the scenes and extras. The price likely isn't right for JKJ to agree to return.
