All My Children’s David Rasche and Rebecca Budig Go Primetime – UPDATED!

Daytime television has always been a breeding ground for future Primetime and movie stars. Now two former All My Children actors are proving that adage to be true – by making good in Primetime!
First up, David Rasche (ex-Rob Gardner)!
The hated Rob exited Pine Valley last May after ruining Jesse’s (Darnell Williams) wedding to Angie (Debbi Morgan), shooting Tad (Michael E. Knight) and killing Julia (Sydney Penny). He was shot during his great escape attempt and is now behind bars.
Since leaving Pine Valley David has appeared as a guest star in several Primetime dramas including “Law & Order” and the film “Burn After Reading.” Now he’s landed the role of Calvin Hartley on the hit “Ugly Betty.” The show returns to ABC on April 30.
Next up, Rebecca Budig (ex-Greenlee Smythe Lavery).
After learning that Zach (Thorsten Kaye) had kissed Reese (Tamara Braun), Greenlee hit the road – just before her wedding! – to find Zach and question him. Kendall (Alicia Minshew) found out at the same time and also hit the road. Driving erratically, she wound up driving Greenlee off the road; Greenlee’s body was found several weeks later and DNA confirmed that she was dead.
Rebecca has landed a guest starring spot on the hit sitcom “How I Met Your Mother.” She will play Holly in the comedy following Ted as he searches for the love of his life.
Rebecca has also landed a role in the upcoming comedy “Please Give.” The film is still in production. The comedy follows a husband and wife who continually argue and butt heads with the granddaughters of a woman living in an apartment they own. Rebecca plays a character called Bigback in the film. Amanda Peet, Thomas Ian Nicholas and Catherine Keener also star in the film.
Congratulations to Rebecca and David from Soaps.com!
