He has a strange hairline and blinks too much, but he is stunningly handsome.
The EJ James Scott?
He would have been great on DYNASTY or FALCON CREST but that's about it.
Ahh, he's a soap star. No wonder I didn't have a clue who he was.
God, he's gorgeous.
The excessive blinking thing does get to be annoying at times, however.
I often wonder if the blinking is because he's not wearing his contacts/glasses and he can't see well. Or maybe the bright studio lights are bothering him
And yes, the hairline is weird too.
Saw him at a fundraiser last week. Taller and thinner than I would have guessed.
When we left, he was flirting with some cougar in a dark corner of the parking lot.
Are they reading cue cards at DOOL? That could explain the blinking.
It's also funny watching James and Aliison Sweeney as he is so much taller.
Don't think much of him.
He speaks through clenched teeth like he is constipated.
I thought the blinking was some sort of performance behavior but then I noticed in many personal pictures that he wears glasses so it the blinking might be due to contacts.
Asshole of the highest order at a DOOL convention a few years back:
"He is close to perfect"
I agree. But at age 33 that window of opportunity is closing fast on a film/primetime tv career. But I think I saw a youtube interview where he states satisfaction with his level of celebrity and not being under it's white hot glare. The focus will also intensify on who he is sleeping with...
He is perfection that is for sure
These James Scott threads re-appear from time to time. It is at these times I feel the need to proclaim that James is an ass and not well loved. He is also lazy and not very talented. Therefore, not more famous.
I wish I hadn't read that,r13. Puts James in a whole new light. Just hope he was having a bad day.
People with a thin upper lip tend to be Republicans and ill-mannered assholes.
Gorgeous man. HORRIBLE actor. The only reason he is still on Days is because of his incredible good looks. He is very fortunate to have the career he has given his lack of talent.
I have no doubt he's an asshole, but the story at R13's link is incomprehensible.
Is he the one who teased Michael E Knight on AMC, driving Knight crazy with lust, just so that he could get an in with the queen bee on the set?
What I got out of that post was that James was rude, kind of dismissive but totally over the whole over the top fan reaction and fighting between all these silly named groups. I LOVE soaps always have, but I've also always been embarrassed by all the groups that form around popular characters or couples (which is fine) but then go about bickering and fighting and sniping at each other AS IF they were fighting over real people. I do get what he was trying to say, but he did express it rather crudely and inappropriately.
Kind of makes him cooler to me. LOL
Imagine the pissy mood you'd be in if you had to sit before a herd of flabby fraus sporting "Team Ejami" tee shirts.
I agree, r20. I could not follow that at all. Some have said he is not too talented but that should not hold anyone back in today's popular culture. Why couldn't he be a Bachelor or Dance with Stars or something? He seems so low profile for someone who looks like that.
[r25] It's not just the lack of talent. He doesn't even try. He thinks he can coast. He thinks he can manipulate himself into jobs. There are more than a few who are gorgeous and not talented, but, at the very least, they pretend to be nice and actually try to get work by looking for ita and auditioning. As long as DOOL will have him he's fine. Other than that ... I hope he's saving up.
R25, if DAYS was an ABC soap he would absolutely have been on DWTS by now and Bruno would be creaming under the desk to the point he couldn't stand up and scream "You're HOT, MR. SCOTT!"
R26 - you say he thinks he can cost, as if he's trying to pull something over on someone. But he's been fairly upfront it sounds like on saying that's he's FINE coasting. He's not trying to trick someone - he's just found something he can do and get paid for and he's doing it. If he doesn't want to audition for other stuff, why is that a problem? There are millions of people who are content in there jobs - they COULD do other stuff, they COULD attempt to find other work - but they are happy where they are, doing what they do, making enough to do what makes them happy. There's no sin in that.
And that whole "They pretend to be nice" - that doesn't mean they are nice, THEY are the ones who would be pulling something over on you.
He is a nudist by the way.
[r28] That's one way to look at it. OR you can accept James for the stuck up asshole that he is. Whatever gets you through it.
He's skinny and not attractive to me. He'd do well to become a character actor since he's not a hunk by any stretch of the imagination.
r31, what is your idea of a "hunk"? Just curious.
Saw him at a vegan restaurant in Studio City about a year ago. He was much paler in person without all of the makeup. He was wearing a baseball cap and with a woman.
There are no vegan restaurants in Studio City, r33. What an easy lie to uncover.
Are you just being a dick R34? Please see link.
I'd tell you to have the Jungle Noodles but you're too much of a dick with whom to share good recommendations.
[r32] FYI the term "hunk" way back when meant a man who was beefy and sexy at the same time, e.g. Joe Manganiello or Chris Meloni. James is way too thin and male model like to be considered a hunk in the classic sense, although he is quite handsome. BUT like everything else in pop culture nomenclature it has become watered down and so over used that it has lost its impact.
I was just teasing you, r33. Sorry about that. I did appreciate the sighting tidbit.
He's gorgeous, but has a serious cuecard dependency. (His first day at AMC was dreadful.)
Those people at fan events are demented fraus…her rant should be taken with a huge grain of salt.
For a straight man, he has incendiary chemistry with Chandler Massey's Will.
I knew him several years back. He is an ass and loves to fuck with people. It was not out of the ordinary for him to come up with elaborate lies just to see how long he could get you to believe them. He doesn't blink like that in person. He has a thing for older women, but usually just bangs them on the side rather then date them.
R21 Yes - and it led to him being fired, too.
He had MEK in tears. REALLY believed James had feelings for him.
I cannot figure out whether r21 is being real or not.
Scott didn't lose his AMC job due to anything related to MEK.
Scott was fired because Thorston Kaye threw a fit about his character being the father to an adult son (Scott). What Thorston wanted he got .
Scott wasn't fired because of Kaye. He was fired for being unprofessional. He did fuck with certain costars he shouldn't have fucked with but what did him in was pissing off management. That's who has the power to shitcan you. Costars certainly don't and neither Knight nor Kaye had that power. Scott spread the story it was Kaye but that wasn't true and was just an effort to save face as well as retaliate against Kaye for replacing him as love interest for the most popular leading lady on AMC.
I will confirm r41's post. Scott made up whoppers to get attention and sympathy. He's a strange person.
I love the shape of his head-very ethnic looking. Great to look down on while he's blowing you.
So he realy is straight,then?
Here is James back in March getting some award in Austria at the Orange Filmball(!)
His sister is his date:
R13, I don't get it. What did he do at the gathering?
Scott used Knight's feelings for him to get a place to stay close to the studio rent-free. He told Michael that he had a brain tumor. Thorsten did not have the kind of clout to have anyone fired. He isn't Susan Lucci ~ not to mention that he wouldn't. Thorsten did not like him. That is true. But there are a long line of James Scott haters.
BTW [r44] Thorsten himself was forced out when they moved out to Los Angeles. He wanted to write his own exit and they wouldn't let him. What you think you know is simply not true.
R45, you sure he doesn't have that kind of power?
Then why was I out of a job?
The simple truth: James unprofessionally let himself get dragged into a nasty fanbase war at a fan event and reacted by flipping someone off as a joke or wrote something against the other coupling during a signing to try to make his own fans happy and the opposing fanbase that hated his character and coupling flipped their shit over it.
I am a fan of his, but I fully admit he seems like a weirdo and it would actually amuse me if some of his stories were made up. His nudist story to the soap mags is case in point. I think his malaria in Madagascar story was legit though.
Once upon a time I thought he might make a good James Bond down the road, but his looks have changed a lot since he turned 30 and I think he's too wirey for that.
Whether he is a good actor or not, he can turn on his charisma when he wants in a way that is very appealing for me.
bump for a beautiful man. Too bad Henry Willson isn't around.
Did you watch today's episode of DOOL,r65? That forming fitting black jersey looked smashing on James!
This guy doesn't seem like anyone to give a second thought to one way or the other.
UM...BECAUSE HE HAS NO TALENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!??
he's still gorgeous to look at,r68,anda lack of talent never hurt anyone before
He mumbles when he speaks, and he needs to project louder. James is not a great actor, but he is dreamy!
If not for James and Eileen Davidson, this show would be as good as cancelled. Thank GOD for them.
According to a very old issue of a soap magazine, James didn't get along with many od his AMC co-workers as well as the co-workers on DAYS. I am a fan of his but he doesn't sound like a very good person. For example:When asked about the rape scene he did on DAYS, he offended many rape victims as this is exactly what he said: I am tired of talking about it and if I had the choice to re-write it, I would have Sami offer the sex in exchange for saving Lucas' life. I'll fuck you if you save Lucas, I mean i'll have sex with you. Then the interviewer thought it was hilarious how he dropped the F-bomb and shows that he is down to earth. WTF, here is the link.
