Matthew Metzger (Duke Buchanan) has come to the end of his run on One Life to Live. The under-used actor will once again find himself being voted off of a television series.

Fans of the hit television series American Idol already know that Metzger appeared in the third season of the singing competition. Metzger, a semi-finalist, finished 11th in the competition that was eventually won by Fantasia Barrino. One Life to Live marked the first professional acting gig for Metzger.

Duke returned to Llanview in August 2004 to attend business school, but his attention was soon diverted to family problems. Most recently, Duke was involved in a love triangle with Adriana and Rex.

A spokesperson for One Life to Live would not comment on Metzger's impending departure.

Metzger will exit during the May Sweeps period, but an exact final airdate has not yet been made available.
