Pierson Fodé Exits The Bold and the Beautiful!

Another fine young actor has decided to leave the daytime drama arena. This time it’s The Bold and the Beautiful’s Pierson Fodé (Thomas).

There had been much speculation over the last few months that Pierson was indeed planning to exit the CBS soap opera since he has been very busy filming other projects.

The news was confirmed today via Soap Opera Digest.

Fodé revealed, “I’ll tell you what. As far as my time goes in L.A., this has been one of the hardest decisions I’ve made.”

Pierson spent the last two-and-a-half years playing the pivotal role of Thomas Forrester, and apparently has already filmed his last episode.

So sad to hear Pierson is moving on from B&B?  Comment below!

That’s a shame. He was the best Thomas so far and had great chemistry with the other actors.

I totally agree Kim…Pierson has been my favorite actor playing Thomas and I love him and Sally together…I wish Pierson the best with his future endeavors…

Best wishes to the actor but the character should’ve been written out after he had raped Caroline. We saw what happened but then Bell tried to whitewash what was the exact same thing as the Stanford Swimmer. In an interview Michael Logan dragged Bell for this but sadly Bell was utterly tone deaf about rape To add insult to injury B&B made Caroline pregnant & broke up Caridge in one single episode. When Bell wrote off the talented Linsey Godfrey he said in his SOD interview it was because he didn’t want Thomas tied down to a kid. Well, guess… Read more »

i have to agree with you, Denise, on one thing and that is how quickly characters are gaga over each other. Thomas and Sally barely knew each other and yet they were ready to die for each other and we were supposed to root for them. I couldn’t find any root value because I I didn’t have any time invested in them. I do like both characters but trying to buy them as a “supercouple” was something i wasn’t able to do. Maybe if they recast Thomas and give the new actor time to find his footing (if the show… Read more »

Denise…oh, I agree. THE FNAL STRAW for me was when Bill talked Caroline into going along with that IDIOTIC plan (pretending and all) that Caroline herself was dying so that Thomas would leave Sally and go back to Caroline. Really and truly dumb.

Take care, Denise.

Thank you, Denise! I agree with so much of what you say in your post. Caroline, like so many B&B characters, serves no purpose. In this world where corporate power is traded day to day and no one has any real romance or marriage or commitment, characters are but shells moved along for plot devices, not genuine stories. And the hypocrisy of the characters as they endlessly talk and talk. This actor is handsome and talented. And I liked him with nuSally. My hope was a serious story of Romeo & Juliet romance along with that of a man finding… Read more »

Yes, you are right. It is the worst soap that I’ve watched & I’ve watched many, all of ABC soaps & Y&R too. It is all about flashbacks and daydreams. All of which they have about 20 minutes each day to air. Stupid love triangle after triangle and the same characters day in and day out. I really should not even waste my time. Been watching B&B since 2007.

I am sorry to see him go. I hope that the role is recast, so that Thomas and Sally can finally be together. They have had a problem keeping someone in the role of Thomas for some reason.

Can’t say I’ll miss the character, but I wish Pierson good luck in his career. Wouldn’t mind him visiting from time to time. That’ll be ok.

Would have been much better if he had left awhile back. Hes been phoning in his role for a good while. It was obvious that it no longer was what he wanted. The fans deserve better than lackluster efforts by their actors. He and Rome both needed to go.

Recast wish: Marco Dapper.( ex Carmine, y n r) Sauve and sexy. He could be future leading man for b n b. ..and another y n r alumn..Redaric Williams( ex tyler) as Zende recast. B n b loves rehiring y n r actors so keep the tradition going.

This is a Big blow for the show. Especially with the popularity of Thomas and Sally and the roots that relationship has with the show. If they intend to recast they need to take their time and get it right. I heard Hope may be reappearing and Zende leaving its a pivotal time for the show for sure.

Daytime is losing a lot of its young talent. It”s sad for us, but when opportunity knocks when you are young, you have to answer it. He was the best Thomas and as someone said, he had/has chemistry with everyone. I also hope they recast the role.

I will miss him. He was the only shinning light in B and B. The shiella part I fast forward. Hope Sally reminds I love her. Hope she doesn’t leave to. I will miss him but look forward to him on other shows.

Hopefully they don’t get rid of him by him falling in love with Caroline and getting them both to leave town. I love Caroline with Ridge and Sally should be with Thomas so please bring in a new Thomas.

Bold and the beautiful has become through the years the worst and most unwatchable soap . the endless , tiresome triangles and breakups over and over again … Brooke and Bill again and again … the cartoonish and ridiculous new spectras . Just hookups , how we dress , how we look : these are the only things with this soap . The storylines are boring , cliché , superficial and predictable . Sheila’s return was a flop … She died on young and restless , her own sister sara smythe confirmed she was dead and she is alive and… Read more »

I was so surprised to read this; remember seeing an interview with him and the actress who plays Sally…they seemed to really enjoy their characters and their on-screen relationship. Disappointed; he’s a great looking guy who can act; he’s perfect in the role and lights up the screen. He and “Sally” are adorable together. I guess great offers have been coming in and the time is right for him to grab other opportunities.

Best to him but sorry to see him go.

My best wishes to Pierson Fode in whatever he does and i’m sure he didn’t want to leave B&B but he had to make a choice about what was best for his career.Plus maybe he didn’t want to B&B in an uncomfortable situation where they had to work around his schedule in giving him time off.As for B&B, it wouldn’t surprise me if they recasted Thomas in the near future because when Thomas finds out that Caroline isn’t really dying and that Bill, Steffy and Liam knew he may not be happy with them.

I agree with you about Myas family. By the way, did Nicole ever sign the papers regarding thebaby? I to was upset about Thomas in bed with Caroline. I wish tey left her with Ridge and made the baby Ridge’s. I was mad when they broke up Ridge and Caroline. I liked the pairing of Thomas and Sally. I also love the pairing of Katie and Wyatt. I think they have terrific chemistry. I say bring me more. I can’t wait for papa Bill to get wind of the happy couple. I guess if Bill can take Katie’s sister, she… Read more »

‘Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman’ Remake Lands at TBS

Another soap opera gets a reboot, and as we previously reported this one is starring former Schitt’s Creek star, Emily Hampshire.

The remake is of the satirical, Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman ,that developed quite the cult-following back in the 70’s and was a look into American media and consumer culture which starred Louise Lasser as Mary Hartman. In the original, Mary was a small-town Ohio housewife who reacted to the bizarre goings on all around her. The cast also included Greg Mullavey, Dody Goodman, Norman Alden and Mary Kay Place.

In the updated version of Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman, the loglines reveal it’s: “about a small-town woman who feels like a nobody in every aspect of her life until she suddenly becomes a ‘verified[ social media somebody after her nervous breakdown goes viral.”

According to Variety, “After being shopped by Sony Pictures TV to buyers this spring, the project has landed at TBS.”  That means that it will be in development for the cable outlet.

In addition, it was a welcome birthday present for its creator, the iconic Norman Lear who is celebrating his 99th birthday.

Hampshire not only will star as “Mary” but she will also serve as an executive producer and will co-write the script with Jacob Tierney (Letterkenny).

So, do you like the concept of the updated version of Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman? Did you watch the original version? Comment below.
