    Audition for "Elvis" role. Man being questioned about a doctor who brings people back to life. Asked if the doctor has brought Stefano DiMera back to life (*note: could just be a code name for another character). Based on dialogue, episode seems to be airing around Tuesday, October 31.

    A "Days" fan on Daytime Royalty posted a link to this audition video, which was posted to Vimeo yesterday

    Dialogue appears below, in case the video is removed.

    https://vimeo.com/217122973

    WOMAN: Elvis?

    ELVIS: Who are you? And where the hell did you all come from?

    WOMAN: Trick or treat.

    ELVIS: Did you all just let yourselves in here because I did not hear a knock. Hey, hey, you're kind of making yourself at home there, ain't you darlin'?

    WOMAN: I'm sorry, Mr...

    ELVIS: Presley. Most folks know the name.

    WOMAN: Oh, we're sorry if we intruded, but...

    ELVIS: Hey, hey. Sorry...no costume, no candy.

    WOMAN: We're not here for candy.

    ELVIS: Ooh, autographs. (drops something) Butterfingers! Get it? Butterfingers (laughs)

    WOMAN: Answer the question. What do you know about Stefano DiMera.

    ELVIS: Ah, Stefano DiMera, let me see here. Say, wasn't he that side man over at Sun Records? Hmm?

    WOMAN: Stefano DiMera, he was murdered. This is not funny.

    ELVIS: Well, you know what's not funny? You all breaking in here into my house and coming in here and I don't even know y'all and you're asking me all kinds of questions. Now that's what's not funny. Now, I never heard of your friend here, Stefano DiMera,

    WOMAN: Liar.

    ELVIS: And I'm sorry for your loss, so...

    WOMAN: Just who are you?

    ELVIS: Again, the name is Elvis Aron Presley, and that's Aron with one A. That's good to know in case you're doing crosswords.

    WOMAN: Mr. Presley, let me just say that I'm a huge fan.

    ELVIS: Well, thank you ma'am, thank you very much.

    WOMAN: And we're very sorry to have intruded on your holiday celebration but we just need you to answer a few questions for us and then we'll be on our way.

    ELVIS: Look, I got a question for y'all first. Are y'all cops?

    WOMAN: No.

    ELVIS: Ah. Then you all have no right to be here on my property. Now get your butts out of my house, now!

    WOMAN: We're not going anywhere.

    ELVIS: Oh, yeah? You might want to rethink that pal.

    WOMAN: Nice cap gun you got there, Elvis.

    ELVIS: Yeah, you bet it is. It's an exact replica of my prized .38 special Smith & Wesson. And it's right upstairs, in my prized gun collection. Do you want to see it?

    WOMAN: No thanks.

    ELVIS: Well, you're going to see it up close and personal-like if you don't get your butts off my property, now!

    WOMAN: You know, a normal person, which this guy isn't, would call the cops and get rid of us. What are you afraid of?

    ELVIS: Nothing. Listen, I'll tell you what. Maybe I'll call the cops, how about that?

    WOMAN: Oh, I'll save you the trouble. They're on their way.

    ELVIS: Good. And just what complicated crime is it that you think that I have committed, huh?

    WOMAN: We don't. We're just looking for some information. If you'd help, we'll help you.

    ELVIS: Help you with what? Now I done told you already I don't know any Stefano guy.

    WOMAN: But we think you know something. We're following a money trail. We traced a payment to a bank account in Memphis associated with this address.

    ELVIS: Payment for what? Now you think I did something illegal because I am the picture postcard of clean living.

    WOMAN: There's a doctor named Monica Darver who claims that she brought back Stefano from the dead.

    ELVIS: You all are here about Dr. Darver? Why didn't y'all just say so from the damn beginning?

    WOMAN: You know her?

    ELVIS: Well, hell, of course I do.

    WOMAN: Well, how do you know her?

    ELVIS: Oh, I know her in a professional capacity. See, she has what you might call a unique area of expertise.

    WOMAN: Oh, my God, are you saying you hired Dr. Darver...

    ELVIS: To bring a man back from the dead? Why, yes ma'am, I did.

    WOMAN: You paid Dr. Darver to bring Stefano back?

    ELVIS: Oh, good God, no. I told you, I never heard of this Stefano guy until tonight.

    WOMAN: Then what are you talking about?

    ELVIS: Oh, please, now isn't it obvious. Huh? Come on now! The person I paid the doctor to bring back to life was me! The fans demanded it. Long live, The King!

    WOMAN: I told you, this isn't funny. You know something about him, I know you do.

    ELVIS: I can't tell you more than I already have.

    WOMAN: No, if there's a chance he's still alive, I'll get the truth out of you one way or another.

    ELVIS: Hands off The King!

    Oy can't Stefano just be dead? On the other hand, this scene sounds like it'll be a pip.

    I highly doubt it is Stefano. I would be shocked if they had anyone playing Stefano other than Joe Mascolo and of course that isn't possible

    "Woman" was too polite to be Sami, unless she's changed. :)

    Movies, TV, Sci-Fi, etc. have had stories of nasty scientists who bring people back to life, or even "create" people with body parts from several others (Frankenstein, anyone?)

    I hate those stories, and often wonder...what about what killed the person. A bullet, Cancer, tumor, fire, drowning, noose, multiple knife wounds, heart attack, lung disease.....and the list goes on. Do those just disappear? LOL, of course they are never mentioned, but the fact is....the person died because.........???? So, does this ability to restore life include curing the person of an illness, or negating the failed organs?

    The "woman" sounds like Hope, to me. But then, says they are not cops. Even if they were, they would not have jurisdiction in another state, anyway. Do hope someone is just having a dream.

    Sounds like it's going to be a strange Halloween episode. Maybe Sami thinks
    it's EJ and it's the real Elvis

    Love the way they mispronounce Stefano's name in the video clip.

    Should we take bets as to how long it takes for this to be yanked?

    Well, that went out the window when Aiden was resurrected from the grave, via a DiMera Doppelganger.

    I always get a kick out of the "suits". So angry at Chandler Massey (Will) when he said something after accepting an Emmy, about leaving Days to go to college, they let him go immediately, (read "fired"), but now, same suits say "o.k., we forgive you, want you back".

    I hope it is for newly created flashbacks, or someone's dreams.....And not something so ridiculous (in MY opinion) as raising him from the dead. He is not Lazarus.

    In the video, from what Elvis says, he's talking to multiple people. So "Woman" is reading lines for at least two characters. I just named her Woman throughout to make it easier. But, I think the other character she reads is a man.

    The show sued Melissa Reeves (Jennifer) back in the 90s for breach of contract and still allowed her to come back as well.
