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

Courtesy/CBS

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.

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)!

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

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!

Todd

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

Tom

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

Michael

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

Rodney

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 would love Austin Peck or Josh Kelley. Austin is still banging and would fit right in and i freaken love josh Kelley.

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!!!

Scott

NO HUNKS!!!!!! I want a damn male who isn’t all six packs because those are nasty. I want a REALISTIC male. I want an average joe!

Soaps Lift Boycott Threat Of Daytime Emmys

In a key move to allow those performers in front of the camera and behind the scenes crew and creatives to be acknowledged for their accomplishments this calendar year, the four daytime dramas collectively have decided to lift their threatened boycott and participate in the upcoming 46th annual Daytime Emmy competition.

This comes after the four network soaps (Days of our Lives, General Hospital, The Bold and the Beautiful, and The Young and the Restless) banded together after being unsatisfied with snafu’s coming out of the 45th annual Daytime Emmy Awards earlier this year in April, and a list of grievances and concerns they asked to be addressed by the organization that administers the Emmy contest.

Then, following an internal investigation by NATAS by the law firm of Fletcher, Heald & Hildreth of Washington, DC, the results which were released on November 8th, and being in receipt of their findings, the soaps decided to move forward while still having concerns they want addressed.

In a statement from the group, a spokesperson related to Deadline, who broke the story late Friday: “As a group, we are not in agreement with all of the conclusions that NATAS reached.  However, in the spirit of working with NATAS and the TV Academy on improving the integrity of the Daytime Emmys, we have lifted our boycott. We look forward to meeting with NATAS to discuss their findings and our concerns in greater detail.”

On Saturday, someone close to the situation said to Michael Fairman TV: “Our participation doesn’t mean we accept their proposal moving forward, we still have major issues that we will be discussing with the Chair and President (of NATAS), but as a collective whole, we don’t want to penalize our actors for NATAS’ mis-management.”

The 46th Annual Daytime Emmy submissions began earlier this week on November 12th, with the Daytime Emmys slated to be handed out in early May of 2019.

So, are you glad that the network soaps have lifted their threatened boycott so that your favorite performers, whose performances you have loved over the last 11 months can be acknowledged for their talents and hard work? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
