The Bold and the Beautiful is adding some heavy hitters to their cast these days! Hot on the heels of first, Ricky Paull Goldin (Jesse Graves), and then Darin Brooks (Wyatt Fuller), now comes word that fan favorite Rena Sofer is headed back to the soaps, years after her Daytime Emmy winning role as Lois Cerullo on General Hospital!

According to the news this afternoon from TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan Sofer has been signed to play Darin Brooks 0n-screen mother, Quinn Fuller.  While not many details are available, except that TVG says, “Mama is as mysterious as Sonny Boy and both have secrets that will rock the soap”.

Sofer starts work this week on B&B on Wednesday May 22nd and will first be seen on-air on the July 12th episode of the CBS Daytime series.

Yep! There”s a boat load of past and present actors/characters who have languished on the backburner. I wish her and Darin well.

I’m surprise she didn’t try to return to GH she always claimed Lois was her fave character to play. Oh well good luck and welcome back to daytime .

I wish her well as I have always loved Rena….. But I am disappointed because now she won’t be permitted to attend the GH Fan Club Weekend Past Cast event they are doing for the shows 50th Anniversary. I was so hoping she would have showed up 🙁 Congrats CBS, you have a fantastic actress with Rena.

Its really time for B&B to expand to an hour. With these new additions, what about Carter, Dayzee, Justin, Oliver, and Marcus??? Its an embarrasment of riches and I hope this brings Thorne out of the basement as the show needs another leading man besides Bill. I for one, can’t wait for Wyatt/Hope!!!

Here‘s a thought…instead of hiring someone new…why not give proven fan fave Lesli Kay a call??

Amen! I miss Lesli and I can’t even remember the role she plays, it’s been so long. And bring Thorne back. We don’t need all these new cast members. I can understand a new man for Hope, but his family too???? No.

You got that right! Hey, B&B Powers that Be, listen to our friend Jesse here… Put Lesli Kay (and Winsor Harmon, too, please) front and center. They are Forresters after all and, in my opinion, much more interesting to watch and follow than some of their on-screen kin! Jesse, I second your motion!

That said, I did enjoy Rena Sofer on GH very much. I just wonder how much they will use her talent. So many awesome daytime vets are wasted on B&B for lack of story and time.

Hopefully, these new characters will breathe new life into this listless, repetitive show. B&B still languishes in the shadow of Stephanie’s ghost and relies too heavily on characters that are familiar, rather than intriguing. I can’t believe this show still uses soap staples that played out decades ago (e.g., using pregnancy to compel marriage from an indifferent male; using pregnancy to extend tiresome love triangles that go nowhere; etc.). As is this show’s pathology, they’ll bring on new actors who — along with their underused African American characters — will be the first to be dispensed once their cast barge… Read more »

I have always enjoyed her work over the years. I met her once though on the set of the show Chronicle and was so disappointed to learn that she was so rude and difficult in her dealings with people. One of those people that are more easily admired when they are in character. She was so rude that any time I see her in any ad/show I hope the person she really is doesn’t lead to the show she is on being unsuccessful. I stumble on to this Soap today and turned the channel once I saw and recognized it… Read more »

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Then weigh-in, what do you think of Marcus’ thoughts on his exit as GH’s Nikolas Cassadine? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

According to Deadline, Ripa will host Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa, where she will have in-depth conversations with celebrity guests. Depending on the subject matter, a specialist or expert could also join the episode to provide insight.

Now SiriusXM has made my dream a reality with a podcast featuring friends, both old and new, discussing a variety of topics we all face in life, while getting deep with some experts’ views and advice along the way. Not another podcast, this is off camera!”

New episodes of Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa will be available every week on Stitcher, the SXM App, and all major podcast listening platforms beginning in March.

Kelly will be quite busy co-hosting the syndicated talk show Live with Kelly and Ryan, in addition to Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa.
