Ross takes his brand of outrageous fun and frolic to Days of our Lives May 14


Ross Mathews and Jay LenoRead with Caution. Contains Scoopage!

Ross Mathews (“Ross the Intern” on NBC’s “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno”) will guest-star on the Wednesday, May 14 episode of “Days of our Lives” as a patron at the Salem Health Club who befriends Sami Brady (Alison Sweeney).

In this episode of “Days of our Lives,” Sami Brady is working out at the Salem Health Club while trying to ignore the fact that she’s jealous of her husband EJ DiMera’s (James Scott) flirtations with Nicole Walker (Arianne Zucker) when she meets Chris (Ross Mathews).

At the treadmills, Sami confides in Chris about her jealousy over Nicole and EJ working out together.  When Nicole and EJ disappear into the sauna together, she asks Chris to spy on the two of them for her. Chris is more than happy to help out his new friend, Sami, but what he reports back from visiting the sauna is not what Sami’s going to want to hear.

Mathews, known to late-night television viewers as Ross the Intern on the #1 late-night program, “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” has interviewed some of the biggest stars in the world and has made the nation laugh all the while.  E! Entertainment Television named Mathews one of the 30 Most Outrageous Celebrities, solidifying his spot as one of the most exciting personalities on television today. 

Mathews, from Mount Vernon, Washington, graduated from the University of La Verne in California and it was during his senior year there that he became an intern for the “Tonight Show” carrying out normal intern duties, such as copying, faxing, getting coffee, etc.  On the last day of his internship, Mathews began his on-air career and was asked to interview the stars at the premiere of “Ocean’s Eleven.”  His segment was a hit and he then went on to cover many more red carpet and sporting events for the “Tonight Show.” In addition to his correspondent duties on the Tonight Show, Mathews also writes a “Tonight Show” blog and co-hosts the web-show “The John & Ross Show.” Mathews has also appeared on the fifth season of “Celebrity Fit Club,” NBC’s “Phenomenon,” “Critics’ Choice Awards Red Carpet Show,” and NBC’s “1 vs. 100.”

And just to keep you all up to speed, "Days of our Lives" celebrated its 42nd year on the air in November 2007 and has already garnered numerous Emmy Awards and nominations, as well as multiple "Soap Opera Digest" and "People's Choice" Awards.  The show's success derives from its consistent commitment to excellence in writing and storytelling -- supported by a diverse ensemble of performers -- and an uncanny knack for anticipating viewer interests. Set in the fictitious Midwestern town of Salem, the core families, the Hortons and the Bradys, are part of an eternal saga that can include anything from demonic possessions and serial killers to genre traditions such as baby switches, amnesia and classic love triangles. "Days of our Lives" is produced by Corday Productions, Inc., in association with Sony Pictures Television.
