Another primetime suds vet has snagged a role in the ultra-addictive webisoap DeVanity.The Colby's Maxwell Caufield will appear in Season 3 of Michael Caruso's raunchy soap opera as Richard DeVanity, the late, adoptive father of the web's most dysfunctional group of siblings.
“Richard has always been a major component of DeVanity, even though we have never actually seen him," said Caruso, who in addition to writing the sudser stars as Jason DeVanity. "His murder shortly before the pilot episode crippled the DeVanity jewelry empire, and devastated oldest son and heir apparent Jason, who was especially effected by his death."
Caufield is slated to appear in the second episode of the season, as Richard comes to Jason at a pivotal point in the young man's life.
“I wanted someone who could play a big, bold character who has a certain charm, and panache, and is believable as both a larger than life jewelry designer and a loving father. Maxwell embodies all of those qualities. He is a profoundly talented actor, and will be absolutely perfect as the DeVanity patriarch. I am thrilled to welcome him aboard. He is another phenomenal addition to our season. Wwe are grateful to have him."
Fans of NBC's cult soap Passions, are probably already aware that Caufield is married to Tabitha Lenox herself, Juliet Mills. Can't wait until next season to get your DeVanity fix? Re-watch the first two seasons here and here!
