In the realm of daytime drama, Nouri was seen on a regular basis in Search for Tomorrow and Somerset. Michael Nouri has also starred in several prime time TV series, few of which survived past season one: He played amorous voice teacher Giorgio Balanci on Beacon Hill (1975), a handsome 500-year-old vampire on Cliffhangers (1979), Lucky Luciano on The Gangster Chronicles (1981), minor league baseball manager Joe Rohner in Bay City Blues (1983), and detective Joe Forney on Downtown (1986). ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
