About Tuc Watkins: Throughout his college years at Indiana University, Tuc dabbled in regional theater, and by the time he’d graduated, acting would be his chosen career. In 1990, Tuc started getting a few more opportunities. Unfortunately, his first big gig, a guest spot on the sitcom, Growing Pains, landed on the cutting room floor. Tuc’s next role, however, in Chris Elliott’s Fox TV sitcom, Get A Life, was much bigger and a little more memorable.

More guest spots followed, including Baywatch, Sibs, Laurie Hill, The Edge, Santa Barbara, Sisters, Melrose Place, and a brief uncredited role in the feature film, Little Sister. At the same time, Tuc helped found a theater group with a few friends called The All-U-Can-Eat Players. Several theatrical productions followed, then Tuc got his first big break: the role of David Vickers on One Life To Live. Tuc moved from L.A. to New York City during his popular two year stint on OLTL, and managed to fit in an Off-Broadway play in the meantime.

In 1997, Tuc won the role of Sterling Scott, a vain but sweet soap opera hunk in the independent feature film, I Think I Do. The role won Tuc plenty of accolades and led to even more work. Guest cameos in the independent films, Can’t Stop Dancing and The Thin Pink Line came next, and were followed by Tuc’s biggest film to date, The Mummy.

This portrayal of the mild-mannered, bespectacled Mr. Burns garnered Tuc even more notice and was immediately followed by the role of television executive, Malcolm Laffley, on the Showtime network’s original series, Beggars & Choosers. Tuc’s most recent guest starring appearances include the popular television drama, CSI, as well as the critically-acclaimed HBO cable series, Six Feet Under.

In August, 2003, Tuc returned to Llanview for three years in the familar form of David Vickers on One Life To Live and periodically after that. In August 2007, it was announced that Watkins will play one half of a new gay couple on Wisteria Lane on ABC’s Desperate Housewives.
