The hunky men of Salem strip on “Days of Our Lives” episode channeling “Magic Mike”
Well, well, that was a fun change-of-pace episode of Days of Our Lives yesterday and I’m not complaining one bit!
The character of Cameron (Nathan Owens), a doctor, was in danger of losing his job for moonlighting as a stripper and an evil bitch named Ann is determined to have the head of the hospital catch him in the act.
So Abigail, Cameron’s almost girlfriend, and her mother Jennifer round up three of the hottest men in Salem to join Cameron on stage: Daniel (Shawn Christian), Rafe (Galen Gering) and Brady (Eric Martsolf).
While Brady is my all-time favorite Days hunk, as a stripper, I gotta give top honors to Daniel who really whips us into a frenzy with his cowboy hat!
“Days brought in a choreographer who showed us a few choice moves, some of which are banned in certain countries,” Martsolf tells TV Guide Magazine. “But Galen and I had no issues — certainly not after Passions where we’d take off our clothes for any mundane reason.” He recalls one plot where he and Justin Hartley had to help a woman who’d been shot. “I used my shirt as a pillow, he used his as a tourniquet, then we hung around the hospital topless for six episodes asking about her condition. So this thing on Days? Business as usual!”
Adds Gering: “Eric clearly has a lot of experience doing strip shows,” cracks Gering. “And I think Shawn was pretty drunk so he was having a good time, too. I was just trying not to embarrass myself but I kept remembering what they taught us in acting school: Dare to suck.”
