"Just so you know," Gaskill said in a statement, "the last time you saw me on B&B was the last time I worked there, and although I am on recurring status, I have no idea if and when I will be returning the show."
It was with much fanfare in September 2003 that Gaskill's addition to the B&B cast was announced. However, within a matter of months the actor's on-screen time began to dwindle. Insiders attributed the demise of Gaskill's story to the exit of three-time Emmy winner Jennifer Finnigan

, Gaskill announced that he'd been bumped to recurring status.
"Beginning in the middle of July, I have decided to continue working with The Bold and the Beautiful on a recurring basis," Gaskill said in a statement. "Although the role of Oscar Marone, which Brad Bell created for me, has not yet found a place to blossom on the show, both he and I agree there is still hope of seeing Ozzy around from time to time and we are happy about that."
Gaskill hints that a return to daytime television doesn't appear likely, but the actor is making sure not to burn any bridges noting that he'll "never say never" to a possible return on daytime television. Meanwhile, the actor is making the rounds in Los Angeles and auditioning for other projects.
