Days of Our Lives alum Mark Hapka has snared the leading role in the upcoming Fox Digital Studios science fiction series, Parallels. Per Deadline, Hapka, best known for the role of Nathan Horton on DAYS, will play street savy underground MMA fighter Ronan Carver. Distanced from his family, Ronan will be forced to face his sister and his past throughout escapades in parallel universes.
Grimes vacated the role due to "creative differences" with the show. Look for James to be wrapped up in a triangle when season seven returns this summer.
