A beloved, albeit offbeat member of the Horton family may be headed back to Salem. According to the new issue of Soap Opera Digest, "insiders" are reporting that Blake Berris, who played Nick Fallon from 2006 to 2009, is returning to Days of Our Lives.
When last seen Nick was carted off to prison for killing Melanie's evil adoptive dad, Trent Robbins. The character was set to serve a two to five year sentence. Obviously, he's been a model prisoner.
Berris received a 2009 Daytime Emmy Awards nomination for Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series, but lost to Days co-star Darin Brooks (ex-Max). Since leaving the soap, he has done a number of primetime guest spots, an hilarious Jack in the Box commercial, and some movie work. The actor's most recent stint was as a drug addict in the independent film, Meth Head.
