Actor Gilles Marini has joined the Days of Our Lives cast. 

A handsome new lawyer will be heading to Salem this spring! Days of Our Lives has cast Gilles Marini in a brand-new role. The actor will be joining the NBC soap sometime in early June, as reported by Entertainment Weekly.

Marini has been on set filming scenes since December. The sexy 41-year-old played the role of Dante in Sex in the City, as well as 2 Broke Girls and Devious Maids. He also had a brief stint as Dr. Gohde on The Bold and the Beautiful last year. There is no word on just how long this current role on Days of Our Lives will be, but he is sure to impress during the time that he has on screen. EW reports that this new role will most likely last at least a few months.

Just last week, Marini teased his new job on Twitter posting a photo with a bunch of scripts in his hand to run through. Apparently, it was exactly 7 scripts to read. That was one huge clue that he had a juicy new role, but it wasn’t until today that it was officially announced.

The actor seems to be fitting right in with his new co-workers as well. He took to social media after the news came out to complement the cast of Days of Our Lives. 

"It’s been one of the nicest group of artists, I’ve ever worked with. So much fun and a great story line. Coming out in June:) Stay tune."

It certainly sounds like Gilles is enjoying himself in his new workplace. He will be working closely with soap actress Lauren Koslow (Kate Roberts). It is looking like she may just be his love interest on the daytime drama.
