Popular 'Days of Our Lives' Character Coming Out of the Closet

Chandler Massey Days of Our Lives'Days of Our Lives' is adding another gay character. According to EW, Daytime Emmy nominee Chandler Massey's character, Will Horton, will come out of the closet on the long-running soap opera.

"I'm thrilled to be able to portray my character in an empowering way that will show his struggle to accept who he is," Massey said in a statement. "It is my hope that this storyline will inspire others to be true to themselves as well."

In July, '90210' actor Freddie Smith joined the cast as Sonny, a character who returns home to his family.

In true soap fashion, Will will struggle with self-acceptance over the next few weeks. Could Will hook up up with Sonny, the new boy in town? You'll have to watch and see!

'Days of Our Lives' was renewed by NBC through September 2013. After 'One Life to Live' goes off the air in January 2012, 'Days' will be one of four soaps left standing. 'General Hospital' is still supported by ABC and CBS has 'Bold and the Beautiful' and 'Young and the Restless.'

I have watched Days for almost 40 years minus the 6 i stopped when the story lines got too ridiculous back in the late 90's and early 2000's. I am getting prepared to say goodbye to the show once again. I am so sick of the Sami and EJ dance. I thought that it was finally over. Put EJ with the one that goes best with him---Nichole and keep it that way. And stop trying to make him all conflicted with his bad guyness. He is a Demira let him be one, which Nichole will let him be....however, don't don't make them soooo evil. Like the way Stephano is bad guy but with a heart. Much like the old mafia bosses. and although I loved John and Marlena, their leaving the show was for the best. while having them on for visits or as supporting stars would be great....had enough of their dramatic life. And the whole Carrie Austin thing...want to GAG. First of all, this guy looks nothing like Austin. And Carrie as a lawyer... haaaahaaaaaaaaaaa. please do us all a favor and send them back to Europe. Do love Maggie and Victor and thank God they sent Jack back for Jennifer...that should never have been messed with just like Bo should never have been with Carly. Like Bo and Hope working together but prefer them as PI's not cops. Should have left Quinn with Taylor ..did like that although must admit, wanted to kill her off when they had her with EJ. Really liked Phillip with Melanie too. And Brady, although really did have chemistry with Nichole(still prefer her with EJ) might go well with this new Madison character. I wish I was one of the writers. I am sure I could do a bettter job than the ones they've had in recent years. I really am going to stop watching if they don't end this Sami EJ bs. They absolutely do NOT belong together. Sami is much better suited with Rafe, just as she was with Lucus.

Is is true that they're going to soon reveal that Marlena is Victor's daughter?

I knew this was coming and I was hoping it would not. Days I hope you know what you are doing. It seems that more and more are coming out of that closet. I've watched Days seems day one, but my time may be short.
