The Netflix comedy series Uncoupled will see One Life to Live alum Tuc Watkins (ex-David Vickers) share the screen with Neil Patrick Harris, Marcia Gay Harden, and Tisha Campbell (ex-Dr. Davis, The Bold and the Beautiful).

Buckle up, soap fans, because Netflix is bringing One Life to Live's David Vickers, er, we meant actor Tuc Watkins to its fold again in the upcoming series Uncoupled.

The comedy project stars Neil Patrick Harris as Michael Lawson, a man who thought his life was perfect until his husband blindsided him by walking out the door after 17 years. Overnight, Michael has to confront two nightmares: losing what he thought was his soul mate and suddenly finding himself a single gay man in his mid-40s in New York City. According to Deadline, Watkins will play the recurring role of Colin -- a.k.a. Michael's soon-to-be ex.

The series -- which was created and executive produced by Younger and Emily in Paris creator/executive producer Darren Star and longtime Modern Family executive producer Jeffre Richman -- will also star Tisha Campbell (ex-Dr. David, The Bold and the Beautiful) in the series regular role of Suzanne, an expensively put-together high-powered real estate agent who is Michael's business partner and loyal friend. She is a confident and quick-witted single divorcée with a son in his early 20s.

Emerson Brooks will portray Billy, one of Michael's close friends and a celebrity TV weatherman. He's good-looking and charming, likes to have a good time, and frequently dates much younger men.

Brooks Ashmanskas will play Stanley, another of Michael's close friends, who is witty and quick and a bit of a snob. He is a very successful art dealer who is not as successful in the romance department.

And finally, Marcia Gay Harden will recur as Claire, an Upper East Side socialite in the midst of a bitter divorce from her husband.

Tuc Watkins starred as OLTL's David on-again, off-again from 1994 to 2013. He's also known for shows like Desperate Housewives, Where the Bears Are, and The Boys in the Band.

Tisha Campbell appeared on B&B in 2019. Her other credits include Inside Job, Harley Quinn, Last Man Standing, and Dr. Ken.
