It's not yet clear whether the actor was referring to his "DAYS" role or another project he may have been working on at the time.

In your first look at the episode, airing Tuesday, December 2, Lucci tells host Meredith Vieira how her character on the ABC Daytime soap opera helped many immigrants learn to speak English. Later the two take part in a Soap Opera Showdown, which included Willey as a surprise participant alongside Lucci.
