On the NBC daytime sudser Days of Our Lives they portray starcrossed, uber angsty not-so lovers Melanie Layton Kiriakis and Dr. Nathan Horton. This Saturday night at 7 pm PST, however Molly Burnett and Mark Hapka (seen above with Burnett's real-life beau and costar Casey Deidrick) will be co-hosting the soap world's favorite sketch comedy show, ACME Saturday Night at the ACME Comedy Theatre, located at 135 N. La Brea Ave Hollywood, CA.
I recently caught up with Burnett and Hapka to dish about comedy vs. soapy drama. We also talked about Burnett's memorable stint as a naughty, Christian pop singer on my fave primetime soap True Blood and Hapka's incredible weight loss story—first revealed in a recent Soap Opera Digest interview—and how the hunk lost 80 pounds in six months! Does he share tips with co-star and The Biggest Loser host Alison Sweeney? Also, does he still believe Nate's heart belongs to Melanie? Read on to find out!

Molly Burnett: Thank you so much! Mark and I are trying to figure out a way to incorporate some singing...of course you'll have to watch to see! As for the True Blood finale, I'm dying because I haven't seen it yet! I saw the second to last episode where Russell and Eric go out into the sun, but if Alexander Skarsguard dies or something happens to his beautiful face..oh boy.... READ MORE

The Days of Our Lives stars wil be the first soapers to co-host SoCal's red hot night of sketch comedy hijinks and shenanigans.
