Best Currently "Unemployed" Daytime ACTORS

Recommended Posts

  • Members

Inspired by BayCityResident's thread (thanks, BayCityResident!), I decided to start a thread of my own. This time, however, let's list our favorite currently unemployed (meaning, they're either not working in daytime at all, or they're not on contract status with any show) male actors.

Here's mine:

Richard Bekins (ex-Michael Alcott, ATWT; ex-Jamie Frame, ANOTHER WORLD)

Larry Bryggman (ex-Dr. John Dixon, ATWT)

Nicolas Coster (ex-Eduardo Grimaldi, ATWT; ex-Lionel Lockridge, SANTA BARBARA; ex-Steven Andrews/Dave Gillis, AMC; ex-Anthony Makkena, OLTL; ex-Robert Delaney, AW/SOMERSET; ex-Paul Britton, THE SECRET STORM)

Lane Davies (ex-Dr. Cameron Lewis, GH; ex-Mason Capwell, SB; ex-Dr. Evan Wyland, DAYS)

Michael Levin (ex-Jack Fenelli, RYAN'S HOPE)

Larkin Malloy (ex-Dr. Weston, ATWT; ex-Travis Montgomery, AMC; ex-Clay Alden, LOVING; ex-Kyle Sampson, GL; ex-Schuyler Whitney/Jefferson Brown, EDGE OF NIGHT)

James Rebhorn (ex-Henry Lange, ATWT; ex-Bradley Raines, GL)

Richard Shoberg (ex-Tom Cudahy, AMC; ex-Kevin Jamison, EON; ex-Mitch Farmer, SOMERSET)

John Wesley Shipp (ex-Carter Jones, AMC/LOVING; ex-Martin Ellis, SB; ex-Douglas Cummings, ATWT; ex-Dr. Kelly Nelson, GL)

Michael Tylo (ex-Sherman Gale, B&B; ex-Rick/Alexander 'Blade' Bladeson, Y&R; ex-Charlie Prince, GH; ex-Matt Connolly, AMC; ex-Quinton McCord Chamberlain, GL)

Lamman Rucker.

In my dreams, there would be a HOT triangle going on right now with Victoria Rowell, Lamman Rucker, and Tamara Tunie. I'll even throw in Peter Parros and make it a quad. LOL!

I'd love to see this man again on a soap, even if it were for a small, one-day role. I've seen clips of his work on ANOTHER WORLD on YouTube; and while I wouldn't say Reinholt was magnificent, I certainly understood why so many found him alluring back in the day. Even on his worst day, too, he couldn't have been worse than AMC's Aidan Turner or Cameron Mathison.

Aw, I liked Gaskill, but ONLY on AMC as Bobby. He's been a misfit on every show ever since. He devoured PC as annoying Rafe, never meshed as Oscar on B&B, hammed it up as creepy BJ on ATWT, and practically never existed on GL as Dylan. What was the point of even casting him on there? But I'd love for him to go back to AMC as Bobby Warner. Palmer needs a "JR" of his very own!

So many others!

LOL! How could I forget Paul Taylor?

Tyler Perry, listen up, here's the cast to your next movie. :lol: He's already got Lamman Rucker on rotation (Why Did I Get Married? & Meet the Browns).
