Galen Gering and Eric Martsolf (NBC)

Originally posted September 24!

Update October 9 - Eric Martsolf's publicist told that Eric will be taping starting Monday October 13, he has also inked a 4 year deal!

As we’ve reported in our Comings & Goings section, Salem is getting a couple of new, but familiar faces. For you Passions fans who miss your favorite actors, you’re in luck, as Days of Our Lives is getting not one, but two actors from the now defunct soap!

Galen Gering, who played cop Luis Lopez-Fitzgerald in Harmony, isn’t making too much of a stretch, as he will be taking on the role of an FBI agent. At least he got a promotion! We don’t know what his storyline will entail, but you can expect to see him turn up in Salem at the end of October.

Joining Gering in mid-November will be Eric Martsolf who will be taking over the role of Brady Black. Since Eric played uber nice guy Ethan Winthrop on Passions, we hope with good guy Brady’s recent drug addiction, he’ll come back to town with a bit more of an edge, so that Martsolf will have something meatier to play. And since Chloe has been paired off with Lucas and had a dalliance with Philip, you can probably expect some fireworks between the two when Brady comes home to settle some issues with Chloe. is so happy to see these former Passions favorites turn up on Days! We just wonder if shirts will be part of their wardrobe.
