The actor told Soap Hub of boarding DAYS:

Really excited. The opportunity knocked and I opened the door. I had such a great time on Beyond Salem. I thought Peacock and NBC did such a great job with it. Then soon after Peacock brought DAYS to their platform, they started talking to me. I thought it would be a lot of fun to create this character with Ron Carlivati [head writer] and Albert Alarr [co-executive producer] and see where it goes. Super grateful.
