* Matthew Borlenghi is coming to Salem to play Mayor. More word when we talk with him, later in the day.

* Bryan Friday is playing the part of the masked man, stalking Marlena, starting August 5. This comes directly from my pal at DAYS. Interestingly enough, Bryan is well known for his work as a stunt man, stunt driver or stunt double. Perhaps this is evil Bart?

* Brandon DeShazer will play Harry, the detective we've seen work the computer at the Salem PD.


Matthew Borlenghi Joins the Cast of Days of our Lives!

A familiar face will be bringing some law and order to Salem! Matthew Borlenghi (ex-Ziggy, The Bold and the Beautiful; ex-Brian, All My Children) personally contacted Soaps.com to let us know he will be joining the Days of Our Lives cast as the Mayor of Salem.

Regarding the details of his new character, Borlenghi previewed, “At this time, I don't know to what capacity I will be used, but I know that I will be working with the characters of Roman and [Abe], the Chief and Commissioner of SPD, and will be shaking things up regarding Stefano.” That certainly sounds intriguing!

While he’s been away from soaps for a few years, Matthew worked with many fellow soaps stars in the movie he wrote and starred in, Jack Rio. As for how he feels about coming back to soaps after all this time, Matthew said, “I'm thrilled to be a part of a giant show like Days of Our Lives. Over the years, no matter how many other mediums I've worked in, I've had a desire to return to daytime TV in that 'special role'. I think the Mayor of Salem is that role.”

Aside from his project "Jack Rio," Borlenghi has certainly kept busy, appearing in episodes of “Dexter,” “Without a Trace” and “Standoff,” as well as the movies “The Hit,” “Cougar Club,” and most recently, “Skeletons in the Desert,” also starring Justin Torkildsen (ex-Rick, B&B) and Tanisha Lynn (ex-Dani, AMC).

Soaps.com would like to congratulate Matthew on his new role and can’t wait to see what the new mayor has planned for the citizens of Salem.
