Daytime's 10 Most Insane Recasts!
No. 3: Josh Taylor for Wayne Northrop as Roman on Days of our Lives
What is it about the role of Roman Brady on Days of our Lives that causes TPTB to attempt insane recasts? After somehow managing to convince fans that Drake Hogestyn hadn't been playing the role of Roman for five years (1986-91), and that Wayne Northop's version was the "real" Roman (Stay with me), in 1997 DAYS once again brought the character of Roman back to Salem, this time played by none other than Josh Taylor, who from 1977-87 had played the popular role of Chris Kositchek, one of the groomsmen at Roman and Marlena's first wedding. Sigh. Results: Failed.
