American Gladiator, Mike O’Hearn (AKA: Titan) will be hopping over to Salem to portray the role of a helpful bartender in NBC’s popular soap, Days of Our Lives.
In the episode,O’Hearn will try to sober up Chelsea Brady (Rachel Melvin), but when Chelsea ignores his attempts and flees the bar, he will advise Shawn and Belle Brady (Brandon Beemer and Martha Madison) to contact Chelsea’s grandmother, Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow) in order to find Chelsea.
This is not O’Hearn’s first foray into acting. He has enjoyed roles in National Lampoon TV — The Move, as well as in Barbarian, Keeper of Time, Tumblers, and Captain Ultimate.
In addition to acting, O’Hearn is something of a celebrity in body-building circles. He’s the four-time Mr. Universe champion, four-time power-lifting champion, seven-time Fitness Male Model of the Year, and was also Iron Warrior: Decathlon of Strength Strongman Champion.
O’Hearn is not the first reality TV star to cross over to daytime TV. American Idol’s Constantine Maroulis has enjoyed a role on The Bold and The Beautiful, and most recently (today, as a matter of fact), Dancing with the Stars’ Maksim Chmerkovskiy made an appearance on ABC’s All My Children.
NBC’s American Gladiators season two will be coming soon.
Days of Our Lives airs weekdays at 1:00 PM (ET) on NBC. Catch Titan in daytime action on Friday, March 14th.
