NBC welcomes ex-AMC star Duhamel to new drama Las Vegas

Daytime Emmy Award winner Josh Duhamel stars as Danny McCoy, the protégé of “Sin City’s” most respected surveillance guru -- who also had the unfortunate luck of sleeping with the boss’ daughter in NBC’s new drama “Las Vegas.”

“I am extremely excited to be part of such a dynamic cast,” Duhamel said. “I think Danny’s position as a Las Vegas insider makes him an exciting character to follow behind the scenes of the city.”

Born in Minot, North Dakota, Duhamel played football at Minot State University where he was studying biology with the intention of going to dental school. However, the aspiring dentist decided to forgo medical school, and moved to Los Angeles where he began modeling and auditioning for commercials, while studying acting full time.

After a few months, Duhamel landed his first acting job playing the title character in Oscar Wilde’s “The Picture of Dorian Gray.” Shortly after the shoot, he moved to New York City to join the cast of “All My Children,” playing a role that garnered him three Daytime Emmy nominations, including this year for Outstanding Supporting Actor (he won in 2002).

Duhamel’s other television credits include a guest appearance on NBC’s “Ed.” He is currently filming the feature “Win a Date with Tad Hamilton” for DreamWorks, directed by Robert Luketic.

Soap Opera or Reality? Reality TV Couples Who Are Still Together

How many reality fans are out there in soapdom?  Do you have your favorite reality couples? As I am sure you know, reality shows give birth to a fair amount of public romances, and a lot of public breakups. It's just like soap operas, but in real time! In reality (pun intended), fact is truer than fiction and some of these reality couples engage in more outlandish activities than the most contrived storylines on our favorite soaps.

As in real "everyday life," couples have their ups and downs.  What's coming up roses one day, is cause to walk the plank on another. But when your personal life is played out on the airwaves for the world to see, it adds a new and distracting dimension to to being able to keep one's personal life personal.
