Salem is about to get even more smoking hot.

EW has learned exclusively that Gilles Marini is joining Days of Our Lives. The veteran actor best known for his work in Sex and the City, Brothers & Sisters, Switched at Birth, and Devious Maids will play an attorney named Ted who finds himself drawn to Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow).

So will Kate be drawn to him? Outlook unclear but he started taping in December. His first episode will air in early June.

It’s unclear how long Marini will stick around Salem, but word is it should be for at least a few months.

Days of Our Lives airs weekdays on NBC.
