The New Men of B&B Revealed

The Bold and the Beautiful has been the first soap back in production since COVID-19, and now comes exciting casting news that will surely bring some new energy and drama to the CBS Daytime drama series.

First, the series has decided to recast the role of Zende Forrester Dominquez last played by Daytime Emmy-winner Rome Flynn (2015-2017).   Now Delon de Metz will be taking on the role of adopted son of Kristen Forrester and Tony Dominguez.

And in addition, potentially part of the mystery we alluded to earlier in the week as to just who may be the new man in Steffy Forrester’s  (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) life, may have been answered with the casting of Tanner Novlan in the role of Dr. John ‘Finn’ Finnegan.

Novlan is married to former ‘Bold and Beautiful’ star Kayla Ewell (Ex-Caitlin Ramirez) and has been recently seen in the Liberty Mutual commercials where he plays an actor trying to say the lines of dialog required of him but keeps messing it up.   He was also recently seen in 2019 on the CW’s Roswell, New Mexico series.

TV Line broke the casting news.

So, what are your thoughts of a new Zende and a new doctor coming to The Bold and the Beautiful? Comment below.
