Leaked Audition Tape Reveals More Information About Eli on 'Days of our Lives'

Although not officially confirmed by the soap, Lamon Archey (Ex-Mason; Y&R) has joined the cast of Days of our Lives as Eli Grant. Eli is Valerie's (Vanessa Williams) son, and will be revealed to be Julie's (Susan Seaforth Hayes) grandson.

Who will the sexy Eli be interacting with in Salem? If we go by a leaked audition tape for the role on Vimeo, we may have our answer.

Anton Jeftha tested for Eli, who was then known as Levi. The script reveals that Eli and Gabi Hernandez (Camila Banus) will cross paths in a major way.

Eli is a cop, who is investigating something sinister down at the docs. Eli warns Gabi that if she keeps poking her head in places where she doesn't belong, she could end up dead. Gabi claims she has the right connections and can take care of herself. They banter back and forth until the sound of a gun shot scares Gabi. Eli believes that Gabi felt safe in his arms, but she thinks he is cocky and obnoxious. She walks off, but not before declaring, "I don't think there is enough room in here, for both me and your ego."

Although we can't be sure that this scene will make it to air, it does look like sparks will fly between Eli and Gabi. What does this mean for JJ (Casey Moss) and Chad (Billy Flynn)? And what will Julie think about another Horton relative possibly hooking up with Gabi? Stay tuned!
