Alan Carter: Wherever he goes, whatever he does....the man is fascinating.

Patrick Erwin: Most actors are lucky to make a splash in one role. Born has been memorable in so many roles: Terrible Tom (Y&R), Mitch Laurence (OLTL), Joe Novak (Ryan’s Hope) and Robert (SB).

Roger Newcomb: It's too bad Born's never stuck with one show in one memorable role because that would probably have put him even higher on the list. But what's impressive is that he has gone to a dozen soaps and created memorable characters. He hasn't always been well-served by the writing on all those shows but he has always brought his A-game no matter what.

    Even when he plays the part of a 'bad guy' … no
    one can deny that ROSCOE BORN is very simply
    the SEXIEST and HOTTEST actor on television
    -- hands down (he's one of those rare actors
    that gets hotter and sexier with age)!!

    If he were hired to do 'nothing but
    breathe' --- I would pay to see it.

    The man is simply smoldering!!

    Plus -- on top of everything else
    -- he's also incredibly talented. :-D
