EJ has always been an important character to the Salem landscape, and we’re thrilled to have found Dan to bring him back to the canvas.
Ex-Spartacus: Blood and Sand star Feuerriegel added:
I am so excited to bring EJ back to Days of our Lives and to see what flavor I can bring to Salem.
Feuerriegel’s first air date is Wednesday, June 9.
