Jason Brooks, a dashingly handsome and imposingly built brown-haired TV actor, earned fame with his 1993-98 portrayal of likable villain Peter Blake on the popular NBC daytime drama "Days of Our Lives" and later stepped in as David Hasselhoff's protege on the syndicated series "Baywatch Hawaii" (1999-2001). A Colorado native, Brooks and his family moved to Los Angeles at age seven and was unable to fight the call of show business despite his more academically-inclined background. 1990 saw the actor make his start with a guest role in the ABC series "Doogie Howser, M.D." as well as a featured part in the USA Network TV-movie "I'm Dangerous Tonight." In 1992, Brooks tried out for "Baywatch" and was cast in a guest role, but though producers were interested in the actor for a long-term part he had been picked up by NBC to co-star on "Days of Our Lives." Here he originated the character Peter Blake, an undeniably attractive charmer with obsessive designs on Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) who hid his dastardly plots through the cunning and charisma he no doubt inherited from his notorious father figure Stefano (Joseph Mascolo). Spinning into self-destruction and megalomania, Peter exited the series' Salem setting as a pathetically well-meaning scoundrel.
