Salem, U.S.A. is getting a new judge, who will look very familiar to CBS soap fans. TVLine is reporting Law & Order: Special Victims Unit star and As The World Turns alum Tamara Tunie is heading to Days of Our Lives.
Teaser promos for DAYS' upcoming September reboot have John Black (Drake Hogestyn) being arrested for a crime shortly after returning home with his lady love Marlena (Deidre Hall). Tunie will play Judge Weston, who presides over John's eventual trial. Tunie is slated to hit Salem on Nov. 18. Fear not SVU fans; Tunie's stint on the sudser is a brief one and she will still be appearing on the hit NBC crime drama when it returns this fall.
