He was never a thin man - even when he was on OLTL 15 years ago, he was 15 lbs heavier than he should be, and never had any muscle tone per se (check him out on You Tube). I was sorry Firefly didn't stay on the air longer because that was an awesome role for him. Interesting that there was one closet case (Sean Maher, though it sounds like the cast prob knew) and maybe more....... So far that doesn't seem to be working out for him...But he has gotten heavier as CASTLE has been on the air, AND the lines on his face don't help. I know he and Tuc used to hang out back in the day but I never suspected Nathan was gay and never heard stories about him. Must be really humiliating for a guy to stand on the scales then be told they are cutting his pay due to his weight gain.In 1999 he made his film debut in The Mummy, later guest-starring on TV series such as NYPD Blue ("The Irvin Files," 2000), Six Feel Under ("Out, Out Brief Candle," 2002), and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation ("Catch in the Cradle...," 2002).After brief appearances in 20, Watkins rejoined the cast of One Life to Live full time from 2003 to 2006, with several short term returns to the show in 2007, 2008, and 2009.He recently realized his dream with the birth of his twin son and daughter, via a surrogate.
As a kid, Watkins knew he was gay, and knew he wanted to be a dad.Soap Opera Digest named Watkins's David their "Most Entertaining Male Character" of 2008, noting that "Time and time again, David's harebrained schemes and Tuc Watkins's side-splitting performances provide amusement we're always sorry to see end."On October 21, 2007, Watkins made his first appearance on ABC's primetime series Desperate Housewives as Bob Hunter, a new resident of Wisteria Lane who is a gay lawyer with a husband.On November 4, 2007 Watkins guest-starred on the Cold Case season 5 episode "World's End".Jonna Lee [ Becky ], Christa Denton [ Elaine Dooley ], Nancy Burnett [ Mrs.Cutter ], Scott Curtis [ Mark ], Jamie Abbott [ Louis Vasco ], Debbie, Shelley, Jason Naylor [ Freshman #1 ], Anael Edwards [ French Speaker ], Leon Fan [ Freshman #2 ], Nicole Tracy [ Elaine's Friend ] John La Motta [ Salvatore Babotz ], Lou Richards [ Braxton Hicks ], Matthew Asnwer [ Delivery Man ], Janet Clark [ Yvonne ], Barry Hickey [ Jon Donson ] A proposed school dress code puts Maggie and Jason at odds.
