They say one man's trash is another man's treasure, well according to Austin Peck one man's skin flick is another man's work of art! At least that's how he hilariously attempted to defend Rick—the sleazy-yet-slightly-lovable pornographer he plays on One Life to Live—to me recently on the red carpet just before the Daytime Emmys.

"I'd like to think he's more of an auteur," the Days of Our Lives and As The World Turns alum said of Rick, who is currently trying to blackmail teenagers Deanna (Nafessa Williams) and Nate (Lenny Platt) into getting busy on camera.

If the duo refuses, Rick plans to tell all that Nate is the one who gave Matthew Buchanan (Eddie Alderson) that gnarly, coma-inducing bump on his head. Before his current arc, Rick was trying to collect reward money for turning in whacked out, babynapper Marty Saybrooke (Susan Haskell). Talk about a swell guy!

"Rick is more of a director, a man of many traits," Peck continued to explain, as his lady love and costar Terri Conn (Aubrey)laughed hysterically at his side. "This is just a stepping stone for him — a means to an end. I think Rick will go on to be a very talented filmaker."

Maybe even the next Scorsese? I suggested, unable to resist going along with the fun.

"There you go!" Peck exclaimed just as the announcer made the last call for the actors to get to their seats.

All in favor of Peck and Conn doing a web sitcom after One Life to Live wraps, say "I".
