It's so sad that come September 7, 2017 fans will have to say goodbye to Commissioner Raines as Aaron D. Spears ends his run on 'Days of Our Lives', but the good news is we will still see him as Justin Barber on 'The Bold and the Beautiful'. Spears joined 'Days' in 2016 joining the short list of actors pulling double duty on daytime soaps. Apart from his work on daytime, he played Mark Bradley on 'Being Mary Jane' alongside Gabrielle Union and played roles on series such as; Greenleaf, Bones, Criminal Minds, Shark and Everybody Loves Raymond. Soap Opera Intel caught up with the talented actor who dished on becoming Salem's newest bad guy, playing Justin on B&B, upcoming projects and more.

With pulling double duty on daytime and playing two different characters fans would think it would be a challenge separating the two. But that's not the case says Spears, "NEVER a problem separating the two characters.  Two totally different personas hence two totally different characters," he tells us. And he's Salem's newest bad guy of which he had the time of his life playing. "Definitely a fun character to play.  A good guy/bad guy with edge.  Commissioner Raines has been a blast to portray.  Looking forward to more good times..." he shared further teasing us, "You'll see what Commissioner RAINES has up his sleeve!!!"

His days may be over and the sands in his hourglass has ran out but Spears wouldn't mind returning to the show and continue his "rainy" journey. When we asked him about a longer stay in Salem, he replied, "Once again, up to the writers.  Judging by the fans response, I think it could be very beneficial for both of us to have Commissioner Raines stick around Salem and continue stirring the pot."

As mentioned earlier, Spears also plays Justin on B&B and on that subject he wouldn't mind having a more prominent story on the show but that's all up the writers. "I’m always looking to fill in the dynamic outline of Justin that B&B has created from the beginning;  From family with Donna (Jennifer Gareis) and Marcus (ex-Texas Battle), to being related to characters on Y&R (the crossover appeal), to holding down the fort with Dollar Bill (Don Diamont).  The pen is in the hands of BRADLEY BELL and how he sees fit to shade in Justin's coloring book.  I'm open and down to do it if it's in the cards," he shared.

What about his work on primetime shows and other gigs? Fans don't worry; he tells us "Just recently recurred opposite Oprah Winfrey on GREENLEAF and coming this January, I will be recurring on A GIRLFRIENDS GUIDE TO DIVORCE on BRAVO.  Other movies and primetime projects in the works that I’ll announce at another time once cleared." Spears further added that he is “Looking to make greater gains and positive changes in my career as well as others."

So 'Days' fans are you sad he is leaving? Do you want more Raines?
