And that's why excitement is high over his latest role as a lead in Investigation Discovery's Dead Silent.
The California native's management company originally broke the news, which he retweeted along with a hashtag that indicated he's grateful for the opportunity.
The actor has shared a few behind-the-scenes photos of himself on set in Georgia, where the series films. He also reveals he plays a detective on the show where myth, urban legend, and horror collide with real-life killers.
In addition to his AMC role, Borlenghi has appeared as The Bold and the Beautiful's Ziggy Deadmarsh and Days of our Lives' Mayor Anthony Marino, as well as on shows like Castle and Mistresses.
