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.

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… Read more »

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.
