Days of our Lives actor Robert Scott Wilson (Ben Rogers) once said bad times don't last but bad guys do, and boy was he spot on. Just when it seemed the residents of Salem had finally moved on from the Necktie Killer saga, Wilson is scheduled to make a return -- on contract!
Once news started circulating that the actor would be back in DAYS' um, neck of the woods, he took to social media with confirmation, writing: "BOOM! ... Hello again, Salem. You look beautiful."

Wilson took on the role of Ben, an unhinged psycho (yes, two words for crazy are necessary in Ben's case), in 2014 and remained on contract until 2016. He has made a few short-term appearances since, with various characters in Salem still living out the nightmare reality Ben created during his reign of terror.
There's no word yet on what fans can expect once Wilson hits the screen, and there's no actual confirmation that he'll be playing Ben (this is DAYS we're talking about, and nothing is ever really as it seems).
But assuming he is back as his former character, the story is likely going to be bring a lot of drama for characters like Abigail (Marci Miller), Eve (Kassie DePaiva), and Will (Chandler Massey). After all, Ben has proven he's a real pain in the neck.
Wilson's other credits include All My Children (ex-Pete Cortlandt), The Middle, and Supuh Ninjas. His most recent project, Bros, is currently in pre-production.
