Days of Our Lives Alum Jason Brooks Talks Difference Between Daytime and Primetime Gigs

Former Days of Our Lives bad boy Jason Brooks (ex-Peter Blake) is back with a new Lifetime Movie Network flick, The Perfect Boyfriend, premiering tonight at 8 pm EST. In an interview with Celebrity Baby Scoop, the Switched at Birth actor dished the differences between daytime soaps and primetime roles.  Check out an excerpt:

CBS: You played a villain on Days of Our Lives – is there a difference between acting in a soap opera and a prime time television series?

JB: The biggest difference is the time.  To do an hour of a soap, it takes a day which is about 70-80 script pages.  In primetime, you have about 8 days to do the equivalent amount of pages so you have more of an opportunity for quality.  There’s also more money being put towards the production value of a primetime show which allows it to look better.

    What a gorgeous hunk of man even nearly 20 years since his Days debut. No wonder Missy Reeves gave into temptation and got a piece of that!

    I’m glad you said “instead of” and not “along with”.

    We wouldn’t want him to inspire any lustful thoughts in Pastor Scott Reeves’ wife. Again. ;)

    DAYUM! No wonder Missy Reeves was so thirsty when they worked together, who wouldn’t????

    Wow, how hot he still is! Actually, better than back then!!!

    Oh, if ONLY we could get him back right now! Think of the storyline possibilities! Kristen’s gonna need some help soon enough, and imagine him enmeshed in all the upcoming DiMera infighting. Besides, the show’s losing Chad, they’re gonna need another DiMera child in there.

    And Mrs. Reeves can go whenever. I won’t even blink!
