In an exciting get announced this afternoon, Joe Lando is heading back to daytime and The Bold and the Beautiful.

Lando who is soap-famous for his role as Jake Harrison on One Life to Live (and who was involved on-screen with Megan Gordon played by Jessica Tuck, until Megan’s untimely death in one of the saddest goodbyes in daytime history), and who went on to primetime fame opposite Jane Seymour in Dr Quinn Medicine Woman, will be the mediator in the custody battle for Will between his parents Bill Spencer (Don Diamont) and Katie Logan (Heather Tom).

Joe will recur on B&B as judge Craig McMullen.

EW.com broke the casting news, which viewers of the show certainly hope could mean that the judge might find a little love in between his legal duties with one of the Forrester, or Logan women,  But, who would be a good match?  Let us know.

So, excited to see Joe back on daytime? Share your thoughts via the comment section below, but first watch the classic episode between Jessica Tuck (now, Cassandra on GH) and Joe (now heading to B&B), as Megan dies in Jake’s arms.  Grab the hankies!

Thank you for posting this wonderful classic episode of One Life to Live. What a magnificent cast. What magnificent story telling. I cried all over again.

A mediator? That’s the best they could do. Spice it up B&B. He’s comes in as a mediator then gets involved in a classic ‘Bell I love triangles’ twist. Eric/the mediator/Charlie. Now THAT’S a triangle. And he’s a gold digger LOL.

Yes,please give him more of a permanent role. Please bring a new guy or two into Los Angeles and shake things up! I had the biggest crush on him back in the day. I had to do a double take, I would not have recognized him without the prompting. Still handsome.

Thanks for including the OLTL episode in this article. I only got thru the first segment and I am starting to tear up. What a treat to see “Dr Larry” and “Rev Carpenter”. You reminded me of how wonderful that series was. Michael, thanks again. Sincerely, Mark (who started watching OLTL around 1970)

Loved Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman, including his role as “Sully.”

Very excited to see Joe back on daytime television and I do hope he’ll get to stay for a while. This is going to be great!

There was no way I could get through that episode; just the opening scene had me emotionally wrecked. That was THE most heartbreaking episode, well, along with Stone’s death on GH…can’t watch those scenes without losing it.

What a nostalgic look. Michael Storm, aka Larry Wolek was so good in the role. Dr. Wolek was SUCH a great character; just the essence of goodness. Michael Storm is going on 80! Wow!

Looking forward to Joe Lando. Wonder if they’ll expand his role; he’s leading man material. Maybe for Taylor??? Unless he winds up sentencing her down the road for shooting Bill.

I am thrilled to have Joe Lando join B&B! Loved him as Jake years ago and even followed him to Dr Quinn and The Secret Circle. It would be great to have him longer than recurring. He’s been gone way too long!

Love Joe Lando and remember his stint on GL but liked him best as Sully on Dr. Quinn. He won’t look the same without his big knife and pony tail. Can just see him slamming his knife down, instead of the gavel.

I didn’t watch Dr. Quinn… but I LOVED his long hair on OLTL. But, ya know, time marches on… Sigh.

Hi, Violet! 😉

If you never watched Dr Quinn, you really missed out on an epic series! All episodes are on YouTube, start from the beginning, ‘The Pilot’, you’ll be hooked instantly. There is an entire DQ universe waiting for you!! LOL!!

Hahah; thanks fandq. I’ll try and check the show out one day but I’m binge-ing too many shows to keep up with now! Have to pace myself and squeeze them in between “life.” 😉 (But I’ll keep it in mind.)

Fantastic to see Joe back. Good thinking B&B couldn’t have picked anyone better.

B&B is indeed lucky to have signed Joe Lando on! I would love see his role develop into something more permanent,!

I think it is the other way around: Joe is lucky to have gotten some work… In some article he recently said he had auditioned a lot, never getting any role. He prayed to god and B&B offered him the role of the judge Craig M in that soap. I think it will greatly depend on Joe’s acting qualities how long they are going to keep him…

Is this one of those castings that get us excited but then let down as it is but a glorified cameo? I mean, there really is no more room if we genuinely want to continue the endless (!!!) and now derivative wedding carousel ride of Liam, Steffy and Hope.

Not to mention the uselessness of the scenes where all Zoe and Emma o is smirk at each other and instigate useless fights with each other. And Thorne needs to keep his big mouth shut and mind his own business. Granted, Bill will never win a father of the year award, but Thorne has no right to talk to a lawyer or anyone for that matter about any of this. And on a side note, I say bring on more of Sally and Wyatt. I know he is a bit of a goof, but I think him and Sally are… Read more »
