* 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.

Hmmm, I wonder if the old audition script about Philip running for mayor of Salem is back in the works. Interesting and thanks for posting, Angie.

I don't want Bart back, either. It would be stupid and an unnecessary waste of money.

Great minds, Jonny. ;) I hope that IS the case. I'm also with those that DO NOT want Bart back.

Thanks, Angie!

I quess this is the case. Dena just secured her position with the show and we have both players, Phillip and Paul, back in the game.

Well, if it means more angst for Phorgan, I´m all for it. ;)

I don't want Bart back either. Cool that Matthew Borlenghi is playing Mayor, I loved him as Brian Bodine on AMC.

Interesting.

I wonder if the Philip as mayor thing will come into play. It's been hinted at before with Victor and Kate I believe way back when. I think it could be cool.

As for Bart, it's just a waste. I love Steve and I know he got a raw deal and Days and Corday may be trying to make it up to him but it just isn't needed. He adds nothing. The show has enough comic relief IMO. It doesn't need an evil Bart either. That's just dumb as the whole evil twin thing is just too random in this case and it's done enough as is.

Watching the masked man after Marlena in tomorrow's episode...I have to admit he kind of reminded me of Drake. The face under it looked like him LOL. I know it's not but it looked like him to me.

^Me too, Kev. It makes a big difference as more experienced actors and actresses can make even the crappy roles work.

Look forward to this. Wonder what will happen that will require the Mayor to get involved.
