He guest starred in several television shows, including NBC crime drama "Profiler," UPN sitcom "The Parkers" and MTV anthology series "Undressed" (all three in 1999). And after appearing in a March 2002 episode of MTV comedy show "The Andy Dick Show," he landed the role of Rex Brady on NBC long-running daytime soap opera “Days of Our Lives.” He joined the show from July 8, 2002 until his final appearance on July 26, 2005.
