Days of Our Lives: Greg Rikaart’s Leo has become comically delicious as he blackmails Sonny and Will

I caught up on about five episodes of Days of Our Lives on NBC.com over the weekend and see that those cursed lovebirds Sonny Kiriakis and Will Horton have yet another obstacle in their path to everlasting happiness.

His name is Leo and he is being played deliciously by Emmy winner Greg Rikaart.

Now that Leo has come back from the dead, he doesn’t have to pretend to be anything but the scheming blackmailer that he is. Rikaart, formerly Kevin on The Young and the Restless, is making the most of this with a confident performance filled with moments of comedy.

He’s so deadpan and I have to say, I am loving every single moment of this.

Not sure Leo is part of the storyline but Rikaart should not be forgotten come Emmy time next year. He’s a gem!

5 Remarks

  1. I hope he stays around even as sleazy as Leo is! he’s fun! look at all the other bad boys DOOL has brought around. hey! if there trying to turn around the “Necktie Killer” who killed Will, Leo didn’t do anything that bad! okay, he was/is a blackmailer, a prostitute, an emezzler, BUT he didn’t kill anyone!

  2. So hope TPTB at Days can find some way to keep Greg Rikaart and his character of Leo on the soap — It really needs a character with a marvelous dry sense of humor (Gobi Desert dry) who could continue to stir up no end of trouble. Days fan but the NBC soap ends up far too heavy on the drama while eschewing the humorous moments and quirky characters which can so liven things up for fans.

  3. The story is ridiculous but Leo is so over the top. It looks like he’s loving this role. Sonny is such a wimp. He’s the typical poor little rich boy that is just made to be taken advantage of. Will doesn’t seem to be doing anything lately but trying to look angry.

  4. I think Leo is hilarious and Greg Rikaart looks like he’s having a BALL. Adding to the fun is Sheila (T-Boz).

  5. Days… I’ll check it out. I love Greg’s talent.
