Marcus Patrick: Fired for Nude Photos?

by at . Comments

Less than a year after joining Days of our Lives, Marcus Patrick has been let go by the NBC soap opera. The timing of the move has many fans scratching their heads.

After all, Patrick posed for Playgirl just a few months ago. Could this decision have led to his dismissal?

Rumors of Patrick's firsting first started circulating in August, when the actor posed naked for Playgirl. We might never know if this led to his ousting, but tabloid The Globe printed an article saying NBC brass was unhappy with Patrick's appearance in the magazine.

This marks the second time that Patrick has been axed by a soap. He joined All My Children as Jamal Cudahy in June 2006, but asked to be released just three months later.

Today is Patrick's final appearance on the show. We'll keep you updated as this story progresses, but let us know what you think about it now at our Days of Our Lives forum.

Honey did poor Marcus and others just. Break your heart if
he acknowledge his sexual perference. Why should you resent him,
simply your selfish and immature. Please observe the (photo)
settings as art. Nothing more yes as Gay male: I would desire
to have a lad. As Marcus has his own interest besides. He probably have men all the time. Trying to take him out? But
just view the pictures for the lot. Art he is handsome and
talented not the standard. Yeah macho stud which America" always
prompts the rugged male. Did you know Marcus is fluent in French,
Spanish,Italian and German. He grew up in United Kingdom besides
his physical presents he is artistic. Marcus continue on with
that body and mind of yours. Sorry he hurt you (gay or not)
this his life style not the fans. Nor society to judge okay!

He deserves to be fired! Why the need to pose indecent? Do not
give me the response freedom of choice. Okay whom purchase
the periodical Playgirl not to many woman. Not to offend Gays
not even majority of Gays read porn. Marcus my opinion is closet
down low Brothz. The tight underwears this what most Gays admire.
Yes Marcus you done a excellent favor. You where canned try to
get you act together. Come out the closet your Gay!!!!!
