He’s come a long way from The Young and the Restless and his role of Paul Williams’ disturbed son, Ricky. Peter Porte has been cast by Days of Our Lives: Beyond Salem as ISA agent Kyle Graham, according to Soap Opera Digest.

No word yet on how the character will play into the action, but seeing as the offshoot’s central plot concerns stolen gems, it’s probably a safe bet that he’ll be chasing after the baubles along with a number of the soap’s power couples, John and Marlena, Ben and Ciara, Eli and Lani, Abe and Paulina, and Will and Sonny (with Young & Restless’ former Fen, Zach Tinker, stepping in for Freddie Smith).

Hallmark mainstay Porte’s casting in the project is just the latest in a series of high-profile hirings. Already, we’ve reported that Thaao Penghlis and Leann Hunley will be reprising their roles of Tony and Anna, Christie Clark and Austin Peck will be back in action as Carrie and Austin, and original Billie Lisa Rinna will reclaim once more the part that’s also been tackled by Krista Allen and Julie Pinson.
