Hello everyone Hope all is well. Just wanted to say hello, and let you know what I've been up to. I had a great summer. Can't believe it's over already. I traveled some when I wasn't working, but stayed close to home for the most part. Work has been going well. As you all know by now, there were some changes made at the studio. I can't say enough about Ed Scott. He has some great ideas, and I feel like he has a plan to take this show in the right direction. From what I can tell, I will be working alot more this fall. And I have to believe that all of your support, and the campaign letters you wrote have something to do with that. So, THANK YOU, very much. Hopefully, those of you who have written me at the studio have got something back in the mail. I know some hadn't, but I think we got that fixed. And as always, please keep writing me and the studio with anything that's on your mind. I also wanted to let you know that I'm trying to get another online chat/blog going. Brandon and I didn't get to answer too many questions that day. So hopefully that will happen soon. I'll let you know. That's about it for now. Take care...talk to you soon. JKJ
Good to hear from you Jay and that things are going well.... I've also been really impressed with the changes Ed Scott has made... the show is improving in all aspects.... your recent performances have been outstanding.... Philip is certainly a complex character and you have so successfully captured all the nuances and shadings of his personality... glad to hear that we'll be seeing a lot more of Philip this fall.... I've been a fan of yours since you first played Philip and only came back watching Days on a regular basis because of your return.... look forward to seeing what's in store for Philip this fall.... take care

Jay, It's so nice to hear from you!!! I can definately tell a difference since Ed Scott has taken over!! I was so glad when you were on 4 days in a row this past week & look forward to seeing more of you this fall!! I'll definately keep doing what I'm doing b/c I believe it has helped. Good Luck with everything & I look forward to seeing more of you!!
Hey, man. Thanks for posting. Ed Scott is doing wonders with Days - from lighting to editing (thank heavens he got rid of that fade out just before the previews) to music - to acting. You always give top notch performances - this past week, you were exceptional.
I thought the blog you did with Brandon was a blast. Keep us posted.

So great to hear from you!
I'm glad if all our letters are going to cause you to have to work more! LOL. You are an outstanding "Philip" and it will be great to see you doing more episodes! Of course--speaking for myself, I hope all our letters will also encourage the writers to move your character in a totally different direction (after Philip finds his son).
Thanks for posting and updating us Jay. Keep in touch.

Oh man, it's great to hear from you. Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts about the direction of the show. I admit, I've had my concerns. But it sounds like an exciting fall. Hope to see you much more on the show. We miss watching you when you're not on. Talk to you soon and thanks for posting!
Hi....i'm new here, and I just wanted to say hi to everyone. I've watched DOOL since I was just a twinkle in my mom's eye ;D My grandma is an avid fan and I can remember being 5 drinking coffee with her watching Anyways.......i'm new to this kind of thing. I don't belong to any other sites for fans, but I really like Jay's work. On top of being :-*he really has grown as an actor. I love his character on the show and really enjoy the storyline with Pocket and Belle. I may be in the minority but I like them together. So here's a little about me.....i'm 25, recently married and I work as a 911 medical dispatcher and a paramedic on third shift. I would love to know more about Jay and what he's up too along with any way to e-mail/write to him. Thanks in advance!!!
I'm a newbie, but definitely not a new fan. I just found out recently that Jay was back on Days and I was so excited to see that.
Jay, it's so nice of you to post here and take the time to communicate with your fans. You are one of my favorite actors and I'm thrilled to see you back on Days. And it's because of you I'm actually watching it again, lol. And I'm happy to see Nadia back too...you both have always had wonderful chemistry. Plus I'm really enjoying the new edge in adult Philip...it's fun and feels kind of Victorish. Thank you once again for your kindness in posting Jay and being such a wonderful actor.
To the administrators and members here, I'm delighted to to see such an organized site/forum all about Jay. I first got into Days because of Jack and Jennifer, stopped after they left the first time and then got back into it when Jay started playing Philip. I loved the teen storyline, wrote fanfic and everything, lol. Now it's so interesting to see Philip with this adult edge and it actually makes Days kind of fun to watch again.
Thanks for a great forum to share about the character Philip, and Jay.
Hi all! Also a newbie and a devoted JKJ talent observer!
Whoa - this guy can play it all. Desperate and determined, handsome but in your face, and loyal to a fault.
I'm wondering how DOOL can build a solid character for him if Chloe is the new love interest. After all the chasing of Belle, he can just - what the heck - move on? Personally, I wouldn't mind -- but can his character become the force it seems destined to be -- if he switches loves?
I do think the tender beauty of Belle and Phillip is an amazing goal worth working on, but...the policeman fantasy ruined a lot of possibilities -- like Belle being worthy of Phillip, for example. After her tragically intense "I love you" to Phillip, she goes home to games with Shawn with no sadness at all? Belle's just gone schizo if that keeps up.
But, in the end, pease writers, just do whatever it takes to make Phillip the lead dude to carry us through years of torture and triumph.
Surely they get that he's the destiny and potential saviour of this show???!!!!!!!!!
