Ben Rogers (born Oliver Weston) a fictional character from the original NBC Daytime soap opera Days of our Lives.

In the summer of 2013, Soap Opera Digest reported that Days had put out two separate casting calls, one of which was for the role of Ben. In February 2014, it was reported that actor and country singer ('Justin Gaston'), known for his appearance on the television series Nashville Star, had been cast in the contract role of Ben. Gaston filmed his first scenes in October 2013 and was slated to debut on February 26, 2014. During the week of April 7, 2014, rumors circulated that 'Gaston' had been replaced by actor ('Rob Wilson') but neither the actors nor the show commented on the rumor.

On April 14, 2014, Soap Opera Digest confirmed the rumor and reported that 'Gaston' was indeed replaced by 'Wilson', known for being the first male model on The Price Is Right and for his portrayal of Peter Cortlandt in the short-lived online reboot of the ABC Daytime drama All My Children. 'Wilson' started filming in late January 2014 when the series celebrated its renewal. 'Wilson' was slated to debut in May 2014. The original casting call described Ben as being in his early to mid-20s, a “gorgeous, Caucasian, country boy”. He is supposed to be Midwestern or Southern. The casting notice also described Ben as “utterly charming” due to his “honest sincere approach to life and love”. The producers looked for actors with a musical background. According to Soap Central, musical talent was not a requirement for those auditioning for the role. Ben was also said to have a "slight southern accent".

Ben (Gaston) appears in Salem in February 2014 and gets a job as a waiter at Club TBD. It is revealed that he shares a past the mysterious Jordan Ridgeway (Chrishell Stause) but she warns him to keep his distance. After Jordan's boyfriend Rafe Hernandez (Galen Gering) catches them together, Jordan is forced to be admit that Ben is her brother. Meanwhile, Ben is immediately smitten with the beautiful Abigail Deveraux (Kate Mansi). Ben and Abigail's relationship is strained when he learns of her affair with EJ DiMera and Ben views EJ as a rival for Abigail. Ben is shown to have a short temper and an estranged relationship with his father Clyde Weston, who is brought to town by Kate Roberts. Ben is suspicious at first but gradually warms up to Clyde and they begin to renew their father-son bond. When EJ is murdered Ben is relieved that a potential rival for Abigail is out of the way but soon gains another when Abigail's ex-boyfriend and EJ's half-brother Chad DiMera returns to Salem. Ben and Chad begin a feud and Ben becomes jealous of the wealth and power of the DiMeras when Chad is named co-CEO of DiMera Enterprises while Ben struggles to make a living(working at the coffeehouse Chad co-owns with Sonny Kiriakis).
