Circle December 13th soap opera fans! That is the premiere date of soap superstar Thorsten Kaye’s highly-anticipated daytime debut in his new role as Ridge Forrester on The Bold and the Beautiful!

To welcome Thorsten to the CBS Daytime family, the network and B&B, has put together a nifty promo spot released today ushering in the new Ridge in the body of Kaye, who replaces 25 year veteran of the series Ronn Moss, who opted to leave the series over a year ago in the pivotal role!

Just what kind of Ridge will Thorsten Kaye make?  Only time will tell, but from what we can see, Kaye is set to bring his charm, sex appeal, and acting chops to the role that fans from All My Children, One Life to Live and Port Charles have fallen in love with him previously in his roles as Zach, Patrick, and Ian!

Watch the new “Ridge Returns” promo after the jump! Then, let us know if you are excited to see Thorsten take on the role?

I haven’t watch B&B in over 15 years, but I’ll check it out to see Thorsten Kaye.

I’m hoping that with Thorsten Kaye in LA working on B&B, we’ll see his wife Susan Haskell showing back up on TV soon. If Michelle isn’t coming back, maybe (with her hair dyed red) she can be the new Phyllis. Would be fun seeing her work with Thorsten again too, but not sure where they would use her on B&B.

Best wishes to both of them.

What a great idea, Claire! If there’s anyone who can be successful as a recast for the role of Phyllis, it’s the talented Susan Haskell. And since Avery and Summer are both blondes, Phyllis could be, too.

I can’t wait for this, I’ve waited for 26 years for a decent Ridge and finally we have someone who could play the part. I only tolerated Ronn’s version.

Wow, Ridge will actually be played by a real man and not an over grown Ken doll and finally we will understand why Brooke and Taylor are constantly fighting over him.

Harry…I TOTALLY AGREE!!!!! Ridge will be portrayed by the VERY AWESOME Thorsten Kaye…A REAL MAN who knows how to play A REAL MAN onscreen. YAY!!!!! Unlike that BORING AS HELL Ronn Moss…who was WAY TOO BLAND as Ridge back in the day…BLECH!!!!! And, hey…an overgrown Ken doll…now that’s funny. LOL!!!!!

Take care, Harry. Peace.

So glad Thorsten is coming back on daytime, and we can see him regularly again. Loved him as Zach and Patriick. I have never watched B&B, but I will be tuning in now. Go get ’em TK!

Thorsten is the ONLY reason I’m still watching this show.
I hope, beyond all hope, that he rejects Brooke and falls for someone else. Katie, Quinn, whomever…just not Brooke. She needs to be alone for a very, very loooooong time!

It will be good to have Ridge back, just not sure about T in the role. I’ll wait and see how he does.

I love Thorsten Kaye! I just wish that AMC was still on!! I really miss that show and his character was great so I’m still hoping they come back on, miracles do happen. But, I do wish Thorsten all the best on the Bold and the Beautiful..

I’m actually excited to see Thorsten and Ridge return and I’m not a Thorsten fan! It’s gonna be good!

So excited! You have another new viewer in me.

Ah!!!
Ah!!!

A resounding “NO” to the recasting of the ‘Ridge’ character!!! I mean no disrespect to the new actor playing this infamous role but I’m not enamoured by what I saw on his first air-date (today) and from what I’ve heard from others in close circle, I’m not alone in this perspective. The created mystique and the 007 subtleties did absolutely for me…by the way, can someone tell me what was the deal with him covering the buttock of the statue with panty lingerie that just happened to be there on hand??? RIDICULOUS!!!

However, my real contention is how will the show manage to recreate the long-lasting chemistry between himself and ‘Brooke’? Part of this allure was effective in the flashback love scenes dating back to their first encounter in younger years. Tell me how can this be achieved with a brand new character??? Even if the two don’t end up together again, the “BRIDGE” chemistry/connection that long standing fans have come to know and love just won’t be the same.

Mind you, I understand that no one actor is bigger than the show and indeed the old adage “the show must go on” is very apt…but still, this actor’s got a long way to go in convincing me that he’s got what it takes to be the unconquerable ‘Ridge Forrester’!!!

Ah!!!
Ah!!!

“Did absolutely nothing for me” is what an earlier statement above should have read.

Love the idea of the new Ridge.. Now can ya’ll make Brooke finally grow up and act older than 15 years old…. Or is it possible to get Ridge and Taylor back together……she would be more faithful, don’t you think? Just please now start doing something with the Brooke character….. The new Ridge definitely deserves a “big girl” wife….someone who actually remembers she is married, and acts like a wife and mother, as well. Get Ridge to give Brooke the boot… He seems just the man with backbone who can do that…..Writers, let’s get moving…

Thorsten Kaye is a complete dish. so much better than the old Ridge, he was sickening. The new Ridge is so hot. but he should be with Katy, not Brook.

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

As one would expect, limiting contact, social distancing, regular temperature checks, ways to handle props, and a COVID-19 compliance officer for all productions are part of the proposal.   As well as virtual writers room meetings, avoiding filming on-location as much as possible and filming in front of large audiences.

So, glad to know that this major step has been taken to try to get production back on track in Hollywood and New York? Comment below.

British Soap ‘Coronation Street’ Set To Resume Production Next Week Following COVID-19 Shutdown

Will American soaps soon follow the Brits, and be able to start up your favorite soap towns again? While production entities await for guidelines from the state of California and the city of Los Angeles, across the bond, ITV’s Coronation Street has set next Tuesday, June 9th to begin filming new episodes of the popular drama.

Coronation Street had been on  10-week mandatory shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic sweeping our globe.  The return to start up the show keeps the soap on-air throughout July and then ongoing.  There will be three episodes filmed each week at their studios in Manchester.

Along with ITV’s Emmerdale, and  other programs, Coronation Street is returning to production under the UK’s guidelines and  safety protocols for COVID-19.

According to Deadline that will include: crew members designated to a specific studio or exterior lot  …  social distancing will be observed … cast and crew will have daily temperature checks, while older and more vulnerable members of the team won’t be part of the new episodes during the initial period of filming.

In a statement, John Whiston, ITV’s managing director of continuing drama, said: “Getting to this point has taken a huge amount of work and goodwill from a huge number of people, not least our cast and crew. With the peak past, all indications are that the time is right for a return to filming.  And with the extensive protocols we have put in place, we have made our workplace as safe as possible. I’m sure our audience will appreciate having the show they love continue on air. For many who have written in it is a vital escape from all the fears and stresses this virus brings in its wake.”
