Write this down under random. As part of its 50th anniversary storytelling plans, Days of Our Lives is reportedly looking to cast an Australian male.

DAYS showrunner Greg Meng told the Australian Associated Press the soap is planning to give a 12-month contract to one lucky koala cuddler.

"It's a real role and we are not down there looking for the next pretty thing or something like that," Meng has told AAP from Hollywood

"If they're beautiful and sexy that's great, but we are looking for somebody who can step in and fill this legitimate role with a legitimate storyline and a really well constructed character.

Aussie actors who want to be considered for the part have until March 22 to send in their casting applications. The new character is set to hit air in October.
