Blake Berris is known to daytime fans as Nick Fallon, a role he has played since November 7, 2006 on NBC's Days of our Lives.  This coming fall, however, the 23-year-old actor will be taking stab at primetime as he recurrently appears on USA Network's The Starter Wife.

Premiering this October, The Starter Wife is a six-part miniseries that has recently been renewed as a regular series.  Based on the New York bestselling novel by Gigi Levangie Grazer, the show sheds light on the concept of a starter marriage, focusing its attention to Will & Grace actress Debra Messing as Molly Kagan, the ex-wife of a Hollywood entertainment mogul who rebuilds her life after being left for a younger woman.  It taps on the most delicious and dastardly details of a divorce and recovery, Hollywood style.

According to Soaps.com, not much has been revealed about Blake Berris' storyline on The Starter Wife, except for the fact that he'll be playing a character named Corey.  But based on Berris' chemistry with older women, seeing that his character on Days on our Lives got romantically involved with Julie Pinson's Billie Reed, speculations that romance may be in the cards for Messing and the Days of our Lives actor are not that far.

Berris, who graduated UCLA in three years as an acting major in the School of Theater, Film and TV before taking part in a theater program at University of Oxford, got his first on-screen role as a guest star on CBS' police procedural drama Numb3rs, where he played the role of a cocky frat guy in the 20th episode of the first season which aired on February 11, 2005.  He also appeared on the Disney Channel's Hannah Montana in the 15th episode of the first season before making his debut on Days of our Lives as Nick Fallon.
