    Darin Brooks to Stay in Salem

    Friday, April 25 2008

    Darin Brooks (NBC)
    Looks like the character of Max will be sticking around Salem, as set-side sources tells us actor Darin Brooks has re-signed with the show. No word on how long his new contract is for, but Darin has been quoted as saying, “Days is my home and that’s where I’m going to be for a little while and we’ll see if we can get some things cooking with this character.”

    As a young boy, Max was adopted by the Bradys and after some time away from Salem, returned a successful racecar driver. From there he got mixed up in the “Touch the Sky” storyline and the Ford Decker rape story, but hasn’t really had a story all his own.

    We’d like to think that will all change though, because as Days fans know, there’s plenty of story to mine for Max. Is there more to him working on the docks than meets the eye? What exactly is his deal with Nick and his research? And considering they’re both Bradys (no blood relation), what adventures await Max and Stephanie?

    Hopefully these are roads the writers will go down, so Darin can finally sink his teeth into a meaty storyline!

    I hope he gets a great s/l soon...he's such a great actor, and easy on the eye as well!! Glad to know he renewed his contract!

    Yay Max! I love him on Days! I have alwasy thought that he should have a great s/l all his own! Now we can add Steph in the mix too! They are a great couple and it is so nice to see her with a good guy and not some creep - like her ex, Jermey!

    I love Max!!! I also love the fact that Steph and Max are hooking up. Does anyone know the name of the love song Max turned on when he and Steph went to his room. Oh! and who sings it.

    That great new. I think that he should be mixed up with the ste/ava/kayla storyline... The met before at the cemetary and i think they look good together.. i do not like stephanie with him... but if Abby comes back...that has a mamiking for a great storyline as well.. Stephanie is like his niece, just they are not related by blood....

    I am so glad Darin is staying on the show. I am absolutely loving the Max & Stephanie storyline. like someone said Darin and Shelley's chemistry is off the charts. they are the new supercouple in the making. can't wait to see more of them. today's, Tuesday's, and last Fridays' episodes of their scenes made me smile. they are too cute together.

    I like Max but not his intimate relationship with his niece Stephanie. She is his sister Kay's daughter (he always called her that!), and she is his mother's granddaughter (even though she now asks how his mom is doing...LOL)! This relationship shouldn't's darn near incestuous...and TPTB should realize that Max needs Abby back in his life. Bring Abby back to Salem NOW!
