Former Days of our Lives star Eric Winter has landed a role in a planned drama series for FOX about a psychiatric hospital. Winter appeared as Rex DiMera on DAYS from 2002 to 2005.

Just as The Mentalist viewers are tuning in to see if there will be a wedding or funeral in store for Eric Winter's (ex-Rex DiMera) FBI agent character on the show, Winter lands a role in FOX's pilot Weekends at Bellevue. Winter's agreement to play a sexy attendant in Bellevue's ER could be a clue to how The Mentalist's anticipated season finale might unfold.

Producers of The Mentalist hinted to TVGuide that wedding invitations will be mailed out for FBI agent Craig O'Laughlin's nuptials, and there might even be a rehearsal dinner. Amanda Righetti, who plays the bride-to-be, predicts the wedding will go "all sorts of wrong;" however, producers deny that Winter's character will be revealed as their serial killer, Rex John. If the wedding falls through, and Winter leaves the show, Amanda figures her character will return to Rigsby, her former lover.

Eric Winter's new venture, Weekends at Bellevue, is slated to be an hour-long show based off Julie Holland's same-titled memoirs of her own experiences while practicing at Bellevue. The TV adaptation will tell the dramas of a psychiatrist in charge of the weekend shift at Bellevue Hospital's psychiatric unit. Though NBC initially declined the pilot, FOX suspects it will live up to Holland's thrilling and uncanny experiences with her patients.

Eric Winter played Days of our Lives' Rex DiMera from 2002 to 2005. Weekends at Bellevue will be produced by FOX, though no airdate has been announced.
