“Apparently people are rallying for me to be on DANCING WITH THE STARS,” Watkins posted to Instagram. “Been getting a lot of messages. For the record, I’m totally on board!”
If he were cast, Watkins wouldn’t be the first daytime star to hit the dance floor on the ABC reality series. Cameron Mathison (Ryan, ALL MY CHILDREN), Ingo Rademacher (Jax, GH), and Susan Lucci (Erica, AMC) all competed on the show, and Kelly Monaco (Sam, GH) and J.R. Martinez (Brot, AMC) each won their respective seasons!

Watkins may have been surprised by the fans wanting to see him on DANCING+, but he's very appreciative of the support. “Thanks everybody!” he tweeted. “Didn’t think it would get this reaction, but if asked, I’m ready! #terrified”
