Ricky Paull Goldin Joins The Bold and the Beautiful … And Plays A Bad Guy!



Breaking news this morning, but happy news to report!  Ricky Paull Goldin last seen as Jake Martin on All My Children, has decided to return to daytime!

According to an exclusive this morning from TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan, Goldin will begin taping a new character this week on The Bold and the Beautiful named Jesse who is, “the badass dude who fathered Maya’s child. ” According to a B&B rep, the baby daddy, “will arrive on the scene, see Maya with Rick and immediately get jealous.”

The casting of Goldin in the role of Jesse is non-contract at the moment, but said to have serious long-term potential!  Goldin related his decision to TVG stating, ” I’ve pretty much put acting on hold but when the Bell family asks you to do a role, it’s not that easy to say no! I worked for them many years ago on The Young and the Restless and it was a wonderful experience. I’m so honored to be back with them.”

The chance to play a villain also apparently enticed the daytime fan favorite:  “I’ve always been cast as the hero with a few flaws,” Ricky said. “Jesse is a really dark guy with a lot of potential layers and that’s very attractive to me. How long will he be around? That Fifth Harmony song from The X Factor keeps going through my head — ‘Anything Can Happen!'”

In addition, Ricky who turned down returning to Prospect Park’s All My Children launched his own production company and his first series, Spontaneous Construction will premiere on HGTV in April – with the concept that mixes, according to TVG,  social networking, extreme home makeovers, and flash mobs!

So are you excited to see Ricky return to daytime in his new role on B&B?  Let us know!

Cool…………….Like to see what he brings to the show!

O yeah ! Please once the Maya thing is done with pair him with Steffi!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Talk about potential supercouple here !

Love this idea! He would be great with Steffi or bring back Amber for him!

Oh yesssssssss! LOL!

Never liked him as Jake anyway….LOL

He’ll be gone within three months, if that.

If I were Ricky, I would not get my hopes up. B&B has a TERRIBLE track record when it comes to properly utilizing prime soap talent. They are hired with much fanfare, and then in under a year, they fizzle out and disappear with a whimper. Especially in this case, where his character will be tied to another non-established newbie. I do think its only a matter of time before he ends up back at AMC. He was just so natural and organic as Jake…its like the role was written for him.

Hmmm…saw him as Dean on the fab AW and saw him in ‘Grease’ as Danny. My mind is open to this. Could be good.

Please tell em this is not another move in the superstar day player game B&B seems the like playing. I’d like to see a non-Forrester man in town and one that does not end up in bed with Brooke and/or Taylor.

Dont know if he’d been old enough for the part but id liked to had seen him on DOOL as Bo Brady.

Jim he is 48 yrs. old and trust me if you blink you will miss him. Brad Bell has no respect for actors he would rather stick us with a triangle for 2 plus years. And Kim Matula/Hope resume has waitress at Hard Rock Cafe. One day if I have enough room I will list every actor that he has wasted on this show. Brooke has not grown up one bit and Taylor instead of finding true love is worried about the blonde bimbo. And still no Thorne who should be running FC with his Dad not the school kids and the town tramp. Taylor get back into your shrink office. Sorry for the rant this show use to be so good.

Thanks 4 the reply. I stopped watching B&B around the time Steffy interupted Liams & Hopes predictible wedding … i guess the bride really got something old for her wedding-the pregnant third party!!!

I am surprised R Goldin would even consider B&B…I would reconsider that decision before it ruins his career.

I am so sick of Taylor’s (many faces) she acts as crazy as her patients and you never know what/who she will look like when the scene rolls. She is desperate to keep in the main story line and now, she is with Eric Forrester…I am waiting for ‘Queen’ to come back from the dead and rattle the cages of Taylor/Eric…and finally send Taylor back to the asylum she escaped from…

The writing on this show is the worst it’s ever been, not the show I used to watch…all the good actors are gone…we will be burying B&B soon!

Please do not waste him…Examples include Sarah Brown, Lesley Ann Down, Crystal Chappel, for heck’s sake I say they even wasted Betty White. Just my opinion.

Oh yeah, and let me not forget the wonderful Patrick Duffy. There was so much potential for Stephen Logan.

I love Ricky Paull Goldin..but hate the writing on B&B…I will be suprised if the character pans out but not cuz of Ricky but of the obvious egomaniacal writing…I loved Ricky even when he was on a soap I didn’t watch (either ATWT or GL) I don’t know which..if the character doesn’t pan out though it won’t be his fault…Oh & speaking of talent wasted on B&B what about Hilary (Nora OLTL)? another talent they wasted..but there is Taylor with her plastic lips..oh well..

Gloria it makes me furious that Hunter Tylo/Taylor did the botox but this is Hollywood and they think they have to do that the woman was gorgeous no need for that at all.

I understand what you mean but look at Susan Lucci or even the lady that plays Brooke they are older & they both surely have had SOME work done..but it doesn’t look like they are going into the Joan Rivers just doesn’t look good..she would be better off with a few lines..than look like her face is gonna crack into pieces..I saw Leslie Ann Warren one time at a place I was at & she is older than I am (60 & look pretty darn good still)..& she looked absolutely great & I am sure she’s had work done but it doesn’t look fake….a few lines can add some charachter..

Let’s face it their are bad plastic surgeons out there and the more they do the more money they make. Lesley Anne Down is another one that has had work done but her’s is great.

Well B&B could benefit from an infusion of new characters, but I sadly have to agree with my fellow posters that this show has a lousy rep for getting new characters to stick and stay in the mix– glad to see him back in daytime, just wish it was a better gig that’s all.

Love RPG and will miss him on AMC 2.0, but he’s a great fit for B&B. Happy for him and glad to see him back on daytime.

I’m happy Ricky is returning to daytime, but I worry he’ll fade out on B&B. I would’ve preferred him on Y&R or DAYS. Or even the AMC re-boot.

Go get them Ricky Paull! Wooooooo hooooooooooooo back in my time spot!!!

well if it doesn’t work out for him on b&b ricky still has his own show on hgtv……………….

Any Big actor who is not a Forester or Logan is a waste, Look what they did to sarah Brown and Sydney Penny. Most recently they brought on Jon Hennsey and wasted him too.

Since Ricky is actually a talented actor, I’m sure he’ll bring some much needed excitement to the show….It won’t ruin his career, only enhance it, he’ll become the stand out performer in all his scenes. Steffi is gross and if they decide to pair her with Ricky they will be making a big mistake.

I completely agree, I think Steffi is gross too…don’t pair her with Ricky..the character of Maya may be a newcomer but she is far more interesting than Steffi’s character…

Days Of Our Lives

Jen Lilley on Days of our Lives’ Theresa Recast Decision: “It’s a Little Befuddling, But I Still Am Really Grateful That I Got to Go Back.”

Now that the word is out that Days of our Lives star, Emily O’Brien, will be taking over the role of Theresa Donovan from Jen Lilley, fans of the Peacock streaming soap opera are wondering just how the show plans to unveil O’Brien as the recast Theresa, and how she will exit her current role as Gwen.

Meanwhile, Jen Lilley, who had appeared on DAYS as Theresa on and off since 2013, has been speaking to media outlets about what went down behind the scenes in the turn of events that led her part to be recast midstream of her most recent story arc.

Speaking with PEOPLE, Lilley shared that she was under the impression that DAYS was going to fit 12 weeks of episodes into the 4 weeks she gave the show for her availability to be back at the soap opera.  Jen wanted to return to film scenes relating to the memorial service of Victor Kiriakis, because of her close bond with the late, John Aniston.

Jen noted that she went to then co-executive producer, Albert Alarr, and asked why she received less scripts than expected. That is when she learned someone else was going to be taking over the role. She asked, “You told me Theresa’s going to do X, Y, and Z, but I just got the schedule for Monday, and it’s only this one script. Is Theresa still going to do that?”

Lilley says that Alarr responded with, “Theresa’s still going to do all of that. It’s just we’re going to go ahead and do it with another actress.’ That’s how I found out.”

It was at that time, according to Lilley, she asked who would be replacing her and learned it was DAYS cast member, Emily O’Brien. Alarr informed her it would be Emily moving over from her role as Gwen Rizczech. Jen shared she was further confused because they wanted Theresa to be blonde and Emily is a brunette. That was addressed, when she learned O’Brien would be donning a blonde wig for the part.

In wrapping up her time on DAYS, Jen said, “I think Emily drew the shortest straw, honestly. I was like, ‘That is the worst thing you could possibly do to a recast is be like, we’re going to wig you and make you just walk through fire for eight weeks.’ I don’t know whether it was a budgetary thing or a scheduling thing where they just couldn’t work the schedule out so everybody could do it. I don’t know their reasoning. It’s a little befuddling, but I still am really grateful that I got to go back.”

Now it remains to be seen, just how long O’Brien will play Gwen. Is it for the short planned arc of Theresa? Will it be longer? Will Lilley be back? All we can say is, play close attention to the Friday, October 6th and Monday, October 9th episodes of Days of our Lives.

What do you think about the sentiments shared by Lilley on recasting Theresa with Emily O’Brien? Comment below.
