Former daytime actor Kyle Lowder (ex-Rick Forrester, “The Bold and the Beautiful;” ex-Brady Black, “Days of our Lives”) is shedding the super-tight 80s leather pants and sexy, shaggy long hair he’s been sporting for the Las Vegas production of Rock of Ages and trading them in for a — wait for it — coat!
