Blast From the Past: Jake “The Salem Strangler” Kositchek Luke Kerr April 21, 2009 4 Comments You know the saying, "You learn something new every day"? Well, I learned something new today reading Seriously? OMG! WTF?. I would have never known that Heroes star Jack Coleman (Noah Bennet aka HRG) was Jake "The Salem Strangler" Kositchek on Days of Our Lives. Isn't it ironic that he went from being a strangler to hunting down Sylar on Heroes? Watching this clip really made me wish for better days on Days of Our Lives. Hopefully some day thing will improve.
