ABC's brand-new series The Rookie is turning out to be can't-miss television for soap opera lovers. Not only does the police drama star One Life to Live alum Nathan Fillion (ex-Joey Buchanan) and Days of our Lives alum Eric Winter (ex-Rex Brady), but also The Bold and the Beautiful's Aaron D. Spears (Justin Barber) will be guest starring in an upcoming episode.
The actor, who just last year snagged a contract at B&B after almost a decade appearing on the CBS soap opera, is set to appear in episode five of The Rookie, which just made its debut this week.
"My character Ronald Campbell comes to life in episode 5," Spears shared on social media of his new primetime gig.
The Rookie follows John Nolan (Fillion), the oldest rookie in the LAPD. At an age where most are at the peak of their career, Nolan cast aside his comfortable, small-town life and moved to L.A. to pursue his dream of being a cop. Now, surrounded by rookies twenty years his junior, Nolan must navigate the dangerous, humorous, and unpredictable world of a "young" cop, determined to make his second shot at life count.
In addition to B&B, Spears has several other soap opera credits under his belt. He's known for playing the roles of Lt. Raines on DAYS, Officer Watkins on General Hospital, and Officer Washington on Sunset Beach. He has also appeared in primetime series like Girlfriend's Guide to Divorce, Being Mary Jane, and This Is Us.
The Rookie airs Tuesday nights on ABC, meaning Spears's episode should be available for viewing on Tuesday, November 13.
