He'll play the Mayor of Salem, as the soap opera veteran recently talked about the part with TVGuide.com. Here are exceprts from that interview:

TVGuide.com: As you get ready to arrive at Days of Our Lives, what can you tell us about your new character?
Matthew Borlenghi: All that I can tell you without ending up in the principal's office is I'm playing a dicey mayor, Anthony Marino, who may be a bit unstable, and is coming and shaking things up in the Salem police department. The question is really to what end? What's his motivation? Whether he's doing things for the good of Salem, or for the good of Anthony Marino.

TVGuide.com: In what ways will he be unstable?
Borlenghi: Maybe a little bit psychologically, certainly in as far as his motivation and the way he treats the high ranks, the upper echelon of the department. I think he's a big fan of his power.

TVGuide.com: How much have you shot so far? Which characters are you impacting the most so far?
Borlenghi: I feel comfortable saying that right now, what I've shot so far, is having fairly substantial impact on the Brady family and Commissioner Carver.

Lucas, I raised you to be a better liar than that.

Deimos: I believe that the younger generation in this family have been handed everything on a silver platter, and they don't appreciate it.
Maggie: By younger generation, you must mean Sonny.
Deimos: All right, fine. Let's start with Sonny. I'm trying to work with him, Maggie. I've just given him a very important position in the company and instead of being grateful for the opportunity, he's being an oversensitive, temperamental pain in my neck. But at least he's still here. Brady, on the other hand, he's taken off, abandoned the family, Titan. He's left me all alone to deal with the Hernandez family on my own.
Maggie: Well, there's an easy solution to the Dimera and the Hernandez families. Just bow out.
Deimos: I do that and I lose face.
Maggie: With whom?
Deimos: With everyone. Except Nicole. She's taken off too.
Maggie: And to think I naively thought that maybe I'd gotten through to you the last time we had a serious conversation. Let me ask you a question. Has doing things your way gotten you anywhere?
