Jason Brooks earned fame with his 1993-98 portrayal of likable villain Peter Blake on the popular NBC daytime drama "Days of Our Lives" and later stepped in as David Hasselhoff's protege on the syndicated series "Baywatch Hawaii" (1999-2001). A Colorado native, Brooks and his family moved to Los Angeles at age seven and was unable to fight the call of show business despite his more academically-inclined background. 1990 saw the actor make his start with a guest role in the ABC series "Doogie Howser, M.D." as well as a featured part in the USA Network TV-movie "I'm Dangerous Tonight." In 1992, Brooks tried out for "Baywatch" and was cast in a guest role, but though producers were interested in the actor for a long-term part he had been picked up by NBC to co-star on "Days of Our Lives." Brooks' versatile appeal and acting ability made him an attractive TV-movie property, and he was featured in several in the '90s, including the ABC thriller "Alibi" (1997), the UPN sci-fi actioner "The Darwin Conspiracy" and the CBS tearjerker "Three Secrets" (both 1999). Guest roles on the series "Friends" (NBC, 1997), "Early Edition" (CBS, 1999) and "Hollywood Off-Ramp" (E! Entertainment Television, 2000) kept the actor busy, while a 1999 recurring role on the intriguing drama "The Pretender" marked his return to NBC in a challenging part with the time and freedom for more character development that he was afforded in guest shots. In 1999, Brooks returned to regular series television with a role on the revamped lifeguard drama "Baywatch Hawaii." As the assured and organized head of the lifesaving team, Brooks' Sean Monroe was groomed to replace the departing Mitch Buchannon (David Hasselhoff) and breathed new life into the faltering show. Brooks brought a believable dramatic edge to the series with his earnest portrayal.
