Rumor control: Drake Hogestyn not returning to Days image

Drake Hogestyn (NBC)

It has been posted on several sites over the last few days that Drake Hogestyn will return to Days of Our Lives and Salem in January 2008 as 'Russell McCallister'.

Now don't get your hopes up for a Drake return, because when I asked for confirmation on this from my pals at Days, they told me, "This is pure rumor." Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but though the actor and character is missed, he won't be returning as 'Russell McCallister'. is trying to keep rumors to a minimum and we will keep you posted with facts from the show, when we hear word of anything on the 'Drake front'!
