Emmy Nominated actor James Lastovic who has just bagged an Emmy Nomination for his role of Joey Johnson in the category of younger actor in a drama series may be leaving the show later this year. The rumor has been going around for a few weeks now, and a family member, James’ mom Lucienne Lastovic confirmed the news on her twitter account earlier today which she has deleted now. She tweeted the following – “That is why it is beyond her, that the writers did not renew him“. Those wondering what she means by that is, James had signed a contract with the NBC show 2 years ago in March 2015, after 2 years, the writers have not renewed his contract yet, indicating that the actor has been fired from the show. In the coming months, Rubys Hub will find out on whether the 22 year old actor is still part of the show or not.
If the actor is indeed fired, then it will be sad because he has been portraying the role so nicely. But we should not ignore the fact that his character, Joey has murdered Ava Vitali, so him being a free man with the crime he committed does not sound fair. According to the law, crime committed by a person is a crime, regardless of the excuses. Joey knew what he was doing, but that doesn’t mean it’s okay to kill someone and get away with it. With Ava’s son in Salem, it’s just a matter of time before Joey gets locked up in prison. Actor Lucas Adams will be debuting today as Ava’s son Tripp Dalton and he won’t rest, until he punishes the guy who murdered his mother. So I clearly see, Kayla and Steve’s son, going to prison.
Now that James has been nominated, will you be voting for him to win the show? He has tough competition ofcourse in the form of Tequan Richmond, Bryan Craig, Pierson Fode and Anthony Turpel. But if his fans support him, there’s a strong chance of him winning. A big congrats to the actor for his nomination.
