As Paul Taylor exits ATWT, Sulo Williams signs on with Passions

Passions Creates New Role

Street smart Isaac Jenkins is leaving As the World Turns, and so is Paul Taylor, who originated his Emmy-nominated role in 1999. His last tape date was Aug. 6.

"I'll look back at it with fondness," says Taylor of his four years in Oakdale. "I worked with a bunch of great people, from Annie Parisse (ex-Julia) to Miss Eileen [Fulton (Lisa)]."

Taylor's release wasn't entirely unexpected. "I re-signed a three-year contract about a year ago, but I noticed that Isaac didn't have a great deal to do," he shares. "The executives brought me in and said that they haven't been able to write for Isaac, so I'm just going to go out of town."

Taylor's contingency plan is already in effect. "I'm going to be staying with Josh Duhamel (ex-Leo, AMC)," Taylor reveals. Could the real-life roommate reunion lead to a guest spot on Duhamel's new NBC series Las Vegas? "I think a black brother who's friends with [Duhamel]'s character needs to come to town," chuckles Taylor, who will seek out opportunities in film and other prime-time projects. One network has already expressed interest in bringing Taylor to its family.

However, the actor isn't ruling out a return to daytime. "I'd like to deliver a moving storyline for the fans," he said. "People remember Camille's breast cancer, that's how you mark a soap experience.  And because I'm a competitive person, I would like to come back and win that Emmy."

Passions Creates New Hip Hop Role

Sulo Williams joins the cast of Passions in the recurring role of “Puff Dog,” a street thug in Los Angeles who has a past with Chad and a rising recording label of his own. Puff Dog uses violence and threats as a way to get what he wants for his business ventures and we will soon find out exactly what he wants from Chad! 

Sulo’s other credits include Co-Star roles on “Nash Bridges” and “Babaloney” a pilot with French Stewart.  Additionally he has guest starred on “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” and “City Lights.”  He had a supporting role in the film “Playing Mona Lisa.”  Sulo’s first airdate as Puff Dog on Passions is September 18, 2003.

Behind the scenes Days of our Lives: Production Designer

As Production Designer on Days of our Lives, Dan Olexiewicz knows how to construct a set. Yes! He is the man behind the famous Horton Town Square, one of the most popular sets used on the show and probably the largest. I mean who would not want to shop there with those unique stores? Or the new TBD Bar where everyone gathers to talk about their trials and tribulations, or plot their next move.

In layman's terms, Olexiewicz controls the designing of the sets. "Yes! I do (Laughing). I do the color scheme, I determine what kind of furniture will be used, and I collaborate with the set decorator giving me a feel of what needs to be done," he said. "I usually begin with a plan that is turned into a floor plan, and we go from there."
