Scoop! Lamman Rucker didn't stay unemployed for long after All My Children exposed Garret as "The Dragon" and killed him off. Starting Nov. 21, he'll appear in several episodes of the UPN sitcom Half & Half as Mona's (Rachel True) newest studmuffin, Chase. "I was killed on AMC on a Monday and booked [this show] on that Friday," Rucker tells "It's great! I'm really blessed that it was timed that way." Does the Half cast realize they have a genuine soap star in their midst? "Telma Hopkins definitely has [seen] my work in daytime," he smiles. "She even remembered my stint on As the World Turns. She's very supportive. There are quite a lot of soap fans in Hollywood!"
