What do Stephen Nichols and Val Kilmer have in common? They’re both singing Light My Fire and impersonating the late rock star Jim Morrison. Kilmer plays Morrison in the Oliver Stone movie The Doors while Nichols (ex-Steve, Days of Our Lives) portrays the legendary music idol in a stage biography in L.A. Nichols’ production, written by Jay Jeffery Jones, is called The Lizard King. The play focuses on the last thirty-six hours of Morrison’s life.

Since leaving Days last fall, Nichols has guest-starred on L.A. Law and Matlock.
