Will this be another comedic guest stint on The Bold and the Beautiful or something more dramatic?

Comedian Fred Willard is set to guest star in a four episode arc on the CBS soap opera as Eric Forrester’s (John McCook) younger brother, John Forrester!  And as we know, John is the father of Ivy Forrester played by Ashleigh Brewer!

According to TV Guide:  “Willard’s character is a traveling salesman-inventor and quite the party boy.  He contacts Ivy while he’s in the states and decides to come visit her in Los Angeles and reconnect with Eric.

There is no word yet if Willard’s character is comic relief or serious trouble for the Forrester fam!  Willard begins work at B&B this week on August 27th with his episodes set to air the first week of October.

So do you hope John Forrester  is a bad guy, a funny guy, or don’t care?  Let us know!

Younger brother? He looks more older Eric! An another arc-story for Steffy 2: “Ivy” and Liammmm! Bradley Bell should focus on Rick, Felicia, Kristen, Bridget and Thorne… The stories are stupid and characters annoying (Hope, Wyatt, Ivy, Liam, Maya, Carter, Oliver,… )
I don’t understand this show has a great success with public: same stories, same characters day by day! Jacob Young deserves a real story without Brooke or Hope! Where are Amber, little Deacon?

I completely agree about Jacob Young, he hasn’t had much in terms of his own story since he returned and it’s kind of disappointing considering how great he is.

And I think it was a huge mistake getting rid of Adrienne Frantz, she was fantastic! Now that Deacon is back in town, I really hope Amber comes back soon too, imagine Amber and Quinn in scenes together! That would be amazing!

They need to ax Carter and Maya and bring back Amber with an aged Rosey and Lil Eric in tow!!! He must be a teenager by now!!! Amber going up against Quinn would be classic soap!!!!!!

Maybe a new love interest for Pam…

Forget to add…so they could do another love triangle…lol

Actually I always thought it must be Brad Bell’s dream to somehow have every couple on the show in a love triangle and the same time— this could be the next step in this master plan. LOL.

I personally think there’s enough comic relief with Pam and that nutty security guard boyfriend of hers…

Add that to the fact that they sit in on board meetings with some of the others is just lazy writing…and completely irrational.

I don’t find any of these characters the least bit funny…I and the scene coming up with Bob Barker in a fist fight with Wyatt is beyond silly.

LMAO..Seriously beyond ridiculous. Of all people and backgrounds for Eric’s brother..A traveling salesman..and Los Angeles being a mecca of industry he just so happened to never use his brothers connections? No..because he’ll be a bumbling salesman with a heart of gold….ZZZZZZZZZZ….oh dear…sorry..I FELL ASLEEP!!

While I hope he remains a character (in terms of humor), I hope to get more of a back story of the two Forrester brothers. But this is why B&B is the lead in its casting; they always do such a superb job picking out actors and actresses to play parts that really connect with the audience. Excellent casting!

Sucks that Brad Bell doesn’t embrace the history of the show by mentioning Maggie or Jessica Forrester. He’s only been writing for the show for almost it’s entire run while a show like GH who has had dozens of head writers brings up characters from the show’s rich history constantly.

The only thing Brad Bell embraces is the money that foreign dignitaries line his pockets with. It’s time for the IRS to take a closer look at B&B!

Jessica? Msggie? Refresh my memory please.

Jessica Forrester was introduced in 1994 as Eric’s niece and John Forrester’s daughter. John’s ex-wife (Maggie’s mother) arrived soon after played by Barbara Crampton. After being interested in the same man as her daughter, she soon fell for Dr. James Warwick and married him. That was short-lived because Sheila constantly interfered. Both Maggie & Jessica left town around 1997-98.

Meant to say John’s ex wife is Maggie. She is Jessica’s mother. Don’t know about Ivy.

Wow! That’s some surprise casting. Willard is a great, underrated actor. I thought he could pull off funny/sleazy/bad all at once.

richard

Ummmm this is horrible casting!!! They finally bring John Forrester on and they cast this guy?? He’s not attractive in the least and he’s suppose to be a comic relief?? Uggh they couldve really done a big story and she’d some light on the Forresters…….he looks old as dirt, they should’ve cast the. J Peterman guy from Seinfeld, or someone a little more attractive at least!!!! What a letdown!!!!

It makes my skin crawl that Brad Bell would hire this actor who was arrested in 2012 for lewd sexual behavior in a adult theater. What’s next Pee Wee Herman?

jimh(leave it to beaver)

Pee Wee Herman would more than likely end up on G.H. and at next years nurses ball as Richard Simmons escort…lol

Well, isn’t B&B about lewd sexual behavior?

OMG that’s even worse, but he looks like a pervert, yet he’s suppose to be the dad of glamorous Ivy??? Could anyone see Maggie married to that guy?!?!?!? GROSS!!!!

k/kay…oh, I agree!!!!! What was Bradley Bell EVEN THINKING?!?!? Appalling.

Richard…dude…yep, horrible casting PERIOD!!!!! And HELL YEAH…John O’Hurley (J. Peterman from the Seinfeld days) would have been a B-E-T-T-E-R casting choice!!!!! To me, John O’Hurley is WAY MORE ATTRACTIVE than that Fred Willard!!!!! Back in the day, I remember John O’Hurley from the LOVING days (where he played the dual role of Jonathan/Keith aka Good Twin/Evil Twin). Yep. Bottom Line Here: The casting department of B&B (or whoever) really screwed up this time!!!!! WHAT A LETDOWN ALTOGETHER!!!!!

Jimmy

This is a little disappointing because it’s only for a 4-episode arc. It would have been nice for the show to hire someone on-contract as Eric’s brother, and explore the history of the Forrester brothers. That said, Fred Willard is a good actor – I thought he was hilarious on Everybody Loves Raymond back a decade ago. But, does he really look like he could be Eric’s younger brother? He looks older than John McCook.

In fact, if the show had plans to cast this role, I was hoping they would hire Jerry VerDorn from OLTL as John Forrester, imagine that! I think he and John McCook would be great together as brothers! Plus, Jerry is a great actor and I’m sure he would light up the screen on B&B, maybe take some of the focus away from the Liam/Hope/Wyatt/Ivy mess.

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

Jerry and John do look like they would be brothers…Fred looks more like he’d be related to Pams boyfriend…lol

richard

OMG, Jerry verDorn would be perfect as John Forrester, either him or Kale Brown(ex-Sam, OLTL)…..what are the execs thinking???? SMH

richard
richard

Or even Perry King(ex-Richard, TITANS, ex-Hayley, MP)….that would’ve been GOLD!!!!!

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

Ron Raines ex GL is another i wouldv’e considered…

richard

Ron Raines is doing Broadway I think, although speaking of GL, Grant Alexander would’ve been a killer Ridge(JMO), but Could u imagine Perry King paired with Donna, Quinn, or Brooke?? Or even a comeback Taylor?? Uggh so frustrating!!!!!!

One more idiot to add in the boardroom, and this is a successful mult- million dollar corporation…. maybe if we are really lucky, he too, will share that ridiculous “knight in shining armour” storyline! Can hardly wait in anticipation!

Sorry for the negative commentary, but these stories are insulting to us and I simply cannot believe that we are supposed to be entertained by this rubbish!

I actually embrace your commentary and agree with you completely. I am so sick of B&B and it’s stunt casting (and yes Bell….don’t worry, I turned the channel because I hate what you’ve done to your father’s legacy). God Forbid the show focus on original Forresters…no offence to Willard but come on….a travelling salesman????

You have got to be kidding me..Fred Willard as Erics brother?.no class..no manners..thats it..i’m done with the show. i cannot believe it…now I can’t believe I ever watched it…so I won’t.

ABC and GH released this week’s promo which teases a moment where Anna announces she has returned while Finn and Hayden are together.  You can check that out below.
