Tuc Watkins (David Vickers) will return to One Life to Live this summer. It marks the actor's latest short-term appearance on the ABC soap. Since dropping off contract in November 2006, Watkins has returned for no less than five short-term gigs.
Over the past few days, Watkins has suddenly found himself the toast of the Internet -- and it had nothing to do with his work on the soaps. Watkins appeared in The Sentimentalist, a video parody of primetime crime shows like The Mentalist, Medium, and CSI. In the sendup, Watkins breaks off chasing a suspect so that he can play with a dog and cries over a good book. The video is intended for mature audiences and does feature some adult language.
With Watkins' return comes the return of rumors that some of the actor's co-stars are unhappy with his frequent in-and-out visits. The explanation given by these anonymous sources is that the show's storylines aren't given enough time to gain traction because of the abbreviated length of Watkins' engagement.
During his time in Llanview, David is expected to interact with Viki, Dorian, and Nora. A first airdate has not yet been announced.
