B&B Beefing Up The Hunk Quotient with Casting Of New Role – Who Would You Suggest For It?


OK soapers!  Time to put on your casting director hats and suggest who you think would be a good fit, and who you would like to see cast in this new contract role that has now come to light via Soap Opera Digest over at the number two soap, The Bold and the Beautiful!

B&B has put out a casting call for a, “New, hot guy.”   The description reads:  “Male. Caucasian. 25-28 years old. Heartthrob. Very Masculine. Edgy. Not afraid to get the job done.  Bit of a cad.”

So with so many soap favorites no longer on our television screens, especially the folks from All My Children and One Life to Live, who do you think could be a casting suggestion? Or perhaps someone from a past soap, a primetime series, or an undiscovered talent?

Let us know your thoughts, plus who do you think the “Hunk” is being brought in for storyline wise?

    I think John Paul Lavoisier from OLTL, would be prefect for the part even if e is a little older.

      Good choice!

      Totally agree! JPL would be great in the role – he can easily pass for that age range. I really miss seeing him on TV. If B&B doesn’t snatch him up, I hope GH does.

      Peter Porte ex Ricky Y&R of course unless he get’s the role of Christian Grey in the movie Fifty Shades Of Grey that he would be perfect for!

    Tad is the only Cad. ha. I think Aiden Turner but I think he is older then that.

    He’s probably a little old but how about the old “Cristian Vega” aka David Fumero (I think)!

      Like that one, too.

    John Paul Lavoisier he can play the age range easily!

    Josh Kelly or David Gregory either one would be Great. Thorsten Kaye is now on “Smash” and he is in his 40’s.

    from OLTL – Ex-Cutter.

      I never watched OLTL… but, just had to… the last couple months, and it was, Gigi and Cutter that got my attention… they SMOKED. were on fire… these two have the potential for another soap.

    I agree with Jerrica, it should totally be david gregory!! And I think he should be for Hope. Let Liam go and bring in a new guy for her!

    This is taking it back a bit but I always liked Matt Marraccini. He played Jesse, Maxie’s first serious boyfriend on GH; however, if age were not an issue David Fumero all the way!!!

    They have too many hunks standing around at the pool and playing basketball with No Story, why add more? But, JPL would be a great Bro to Liam!

    Josh Kelly. He is actually a good actor as well as having hunk status.

  15. Tom

    Or they could just bring back Brandon Beemer. But I’d hate to force logic on Bell.

    How about Peter Porte, who recently played psycho Ricky Williams on Y&R!

    Hey Bradley Bell, how about beefing up this show with better storylines? Does this show really need anymore useless himbos? This show is so unwatchable!

    i hope that this new man is a RECAST of RIDGE! maybe they can change his jerk carachter in a hot one and reunite TRidge once and for good! Brooke can have every men, she proofed it all over the years 😉
    And for all the (b)RIDGEfans who are yelling and crying: EVERYONE can get REPLACED! even the POPE!!! So lets all move on and hoping that maybe this gives BB a chance to recover and be DRAMA again! Cause it would be unfair from BB and RM only because RM decided to go out, letting RIDGE die! NO dead Ridge!!!

DAYS Wally Kurth, Mary Beth Evans & Chandler Massey Take You Behind the Scenes of Kayla and Justin’s Wedding

On Wednesday’s heartbreaking episode of Days of our Lives, viewers saw just how the nuptials of Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Justin (Wally Kurth) eventually wound up!

Justin told Kayla that Steve (Stephen Nichols) still loves her, which put a halt to the proceedings and ended the romantic relationship between the two dear friends, who found love with one another following Adrienne’s (Judi Evans) death, and Kayla believing Steve did not want her back.

Now, The DOOL app has posted a rare behind the scenes view of the making of the wedding – with moments from the key scenes, rehearsals and interviews with the cast involved.

Chandler Massey (Will) weighs-in on Will’s debut as a wedding officiant and how that went south, while Mary Beth Evans and Wally Kurth shared why they loved this storyline so much.

Wally expresses how the last six months have been some of the best storylines of his soap career, while Mary Beth says that Justin and Kayla’s relationship was so adult and that in real life, both actors have known about people who fall in love with their dear friend, after losing their significant other whether it be by divorce, or death, or whatever the circumstance.

If you don’t already have the DOOL app on your mobile device to watch the segment, you can get more info to download here.

We will have more to say on the memorable performances at Michael Fairman TV later in the week.

Mary Beth and Stephen then chat with Ron about what changes is he having to make to scripts in the reality we all live in now, the coronavirus pandemic, and how he is taking in to account upcoming safety protocols that will need to be adhered to when Days goes back into production.

As of now, from an article in Deadline last Friday the NBC daytime drama series is aiming for a September 1st restart.
