Drake Hogestyn began playing the complicated, complex John Black on Days of Our Lives in early 1986.

An Indiana native, Hogestyn dreamed of life as a professional baseball player, but majored in microbiology at University of South Florida and also considered becoming a dentist if all else failed. Hogestyn achieved his dream of playing with the New York Yankees, in one of its minor-league farm teams in Oneonta, NY. After years in the minors and a knee injury Hogestyn decided to switch careers, which is how he got into acting.

He landed commercials, as well as the CBS series SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS. After a year, the show was canceled. Hogestyn was about to apply to dental school when he got a call for a part on a soap, which was to play a recast Roman Brady on DAYS. Hogestyn won the part, which he initially thought would last mere months. Twenty-one years later, he remained one of daytime's most popular stars until John was killed in a mysterious hit-and-run accident in October 2007.
