Soap alum a "Do Right" Man for Essence
Essence magazine has released its annual "Do Right Men" list celebrating their picks of 50 sexy, single and successful black men. Making the cut this year is daytime graduate Lamman Rucker (As The World Turns, All My Children).
Rucker generated Shemar Moore-esque buzz when Marshall, the cocky, alpha male attorney he played was paired opposite Tamara Tunie's Jessica on As The World Turns. The P&G sudser made a grievous error when they aborted the liquid hot coupling by having Marshall rape Jessica.
All My Children scribes unfortunately must have been paying attention when they decided to write Rucker's second soap turn as Mimi Frye's love interest Garrett as a creepy child molester who targeted Mimi's daughter Danielle. Daytime's loss has definitely been the big screen's gain as Rucker has done star turns in Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married? and Tyler Perry's Meet the Browns. Congrats!
