PAUL'S PUBLICITY


LEG MAN



CBS Soaps In Depth--

"LEG Man"

Paul Leyden (Simon) definitely keeps in shape, but he admits that there have been times when his physique hasn't, well, measured up. The Australian actor recalls one humbling audition for a Nike commercial in which he found himself being inspected like a hunk of beefcake. The commercial was supposed to portray an athlete "running up a mountain, having a race with a mountain goat," he explains. Leyden's acting ability wasn't in question, and, from the waist up, there was no problem. "But my legs were a bit too skinny," he admits. "So they were trying to work it so maybe they'd hire me and then use a leg double." The actor was made to get up in front of a panel for inspection. "To have them all stand around and look at my legs," Leyden laughs, "was a little embarrassing."
