When Tuc Watkins wore patriotic speedos for July 4!
When I ran into Tuc Watkins at the Daytime Emmys in 2014, I lamented the fact that One Life to Live was out of production because one of show’s traditions was that for Fourth of July-themed episodes, the hunky actor’s character of David Vickers would wear a red, white and blue speedo.
Tuc joked that while he might not be wearing the speedo on the show, that didn’t mean he wouldn’t be wearing one at home!
Here are a few reminders of just how good, and patriotic, Tuc/David looked on Independence Day! The middle shot is from summer 2010 when two of the soaps hottest hunks – Watkins and David Gregory – wore patriotic speedos to a Fourth of July barbecue.
They have a bit of a catfight over who is fitter with Watkins, as Vickers, saying to his younger rival: “When did you stop working out? You look kind of spongy.”
