JJ hasn’t had a whole lot to do lately on Days of Our Lives, but soon you’ll be seeing more of actor Casey Moss.
The Daytime Emmy-nominated actor will star in the new movie The Last Champion and shared the good news on social media with an image of the film’s promotional shot, stating “Coming Soon.”
The Last Champion stars Cole Hauser as the lead character, John. The movie’s official IMDB page says this about the film’s story: “When his mother dies, scandal-ridden ex-Olympian John Wright returns to a hometown that has not forgiven him.”
Moss plays the role of Scott Baker, a (former?) wrestler who still lives in John’s hometown and is possibly one of the many the protagonist he has issues with, stemming from their shared past. Moss trained with wrestler Joel Sherer for three months prior to filming.
Also appearing in the film is Michael Lowry, who is no stranger to soaps. The actor portrayed Jake Martin on All My Children, Les Sweeney on As the World Turns, Dr. Hillman on The Bold and the Beautiful, and Ross Rayburn on One Life to Live.
The independent flick was filmed on location in Garfield, Washington and Moscow, Idaho and work started on the project back in 2016. According to IMDB, it’s currently set for a 2018 release.
