One Life to Live actor Nic Robuck has landed a role in a new indie film. Robuck will play a character that may sound a lot like his OLTL role, James Ford, but Robuck says there's a difference.
Fans of Nic Robuck
) will soon get to see him on the big screen. Robuck has landed his first leading role in the feature film, A Dark Plan
, an independent crime drama/thriller.

OLTL fans might notice the parallel between James Ford and Shane Dempsey's dysfunctional childhoods, but that's where the similarities end. "Shane has much deeper, darker-rooted issues and isn't quite stable," Robuck added.
Robuck is excited to be working with director, Armand Mastroianni, whom Robuck considers to be an actor's director. "Our professional relationship is off to a great start," Robuck adds. Rounding out the cast are two other daytime alumni, Michael Nouri
, All My Children) and Nia Peeples
, The Young and the Restless). Kelly Lynch from The L Word
is also slated to star alongside Robuck.

"Thanks to Frank Valentini and my opportunity on OLTL, I am well trained and can more than handle the shooting schedule," Robuck explained.

to January 2012
