Casting news today via Soap Opera Uncensored has that The Bold and the Beautiful is looking for a leading lady type in her mid-40’s for a recurring role on the international hit soap opera!

And giving it a bit of intercontinental flare, according to the casting notice this woman is to be “Aussie/British, Artistic, Beautiful, Strong Business sense. Native accent.”

It sort of sounds like a younger Jackie M (Lesley-Anne Down) doesn’t it?

So now we ask you to put on your casting director hat and post who you think would be a good fit for the part, someone from daytime or primetime television, perhaps?  Let us know!

Eva isn’t Aussie or British. Plus, she’d probably return to Y&R is she were going to a soap again.

They could be going to a full hour. Y&R may be dropped to a half hour.

Well anything to get more NEW excitement into this show…. and now it looks as if Hope and Liam are getting back together….come on! D we really have to endure that once again??? I thought that story was over and dead….
I could almost stomach Hoe when she is with Wyatt..Liam is a wet noodle and so so boring!

Totally agree; frankly I would rather never see Hope or Liam again, but she’s more tolerable with Wyatt.

I could care less. Whoever they cast will only be used as another tool to prop up either Brooke or Hope or both.
This soap is a waste of time.

It must be a new character I assume…but she should have connections with someone on canvas such as knowing Ridge…HMMM? Maybe a past model who worked a Forrester which actually is Liam’s mom…HMMM? Maybe she isn’t dead you know soaps…let the fur fly between mama lionesses Quinn?!

I think Jamie Luner need to return to soaps!! If she’s not cast as the new Phyllis on Y&R, she needs to head to BOLD!!! She’s too sexy not to be on soaps!!!!!

I don’t know much about Aussie or British soaps, so I can’t really offer up any advice on who to cast. But I hope, whoever it is, that they’re able to act up to par with the rest of the cast.

I really miss Jackie and Nick, they were two of my favourite characters. Though their last year on the show was horrible in terms of writing, it was as if they were an afterthought for Brad Bell and that upset me, because Leslie-Anne Down and Jack Wagner are great actors. I’d love for Jackie, Nick, Bridget and Owen to return to the show.

I don’t know if a new role is what B&B needs right now, the cast is already pretty sizable. We already never see Marcus, Dayzee, Thomas, Danielle, rarely Justin and rarely Thorne.

If I were in charge of the show I would send both Brooke and Hope on journeys to find themselves, find out who they really are, and what they need to change about themselves. Journeys of self-discovery, similar to Maxie’s on GH. They take up way too much air time, and to be honest, both characters are (and have been for a long time) a complete mess. Brooke is back with Bill, and Hope is on the merry-go-round again with Liam and Wyatt. Terrible decisions for both ladies, but I guess it’s a case of like mother, like daughter. (Things should get interesting when Deacon arrives though!)

IMO It isn’t fair for a show with such talented actors and an ensemble cast to focus on one or two characters. Recently Brad Bell called Hope the “central character” of the show and I found it insulting to the other actors. I would love to see more Thorne, and as I said I would love the Marone family to return, and put Brooke on the backburnner for a little while, for a change.

I’ve always hoped the show would pick up the criminally unemployed Elizabeth Hubbard (Lucinda on ATWT) playing a business woman owning a fashion-related company (maybe shoes akin to Manolo Blahnik??). Hubbard can’t play campy the same way that Sally was but she is a hell of an actress and could fill the huge void left by Susan Flannery for a strong, older female to berate Brooke over her continuous sexual misconduct.

To turn up the camp factor, I’d give her a couple of loyal employees (similar to Darla and Saul were to Sally). I’d find some washed-up former tv actor to play one of them (maybe the gal who played Nellie Olsen on Little House on the Prairie? That woman seems like she has a good sense of comic timing.). Then, add a non-sexual but devoted male employee.

Top it off later with a couple of good looking kids for Hubbard (Russell Todd to play the son? Someone that Brooke can get her hooks into. Maybe Teri Conn to play the daughter?).

IDK. The show has vastly improved by moving away from the burned-out Taylor and introducing some new folks (especially the equally loony Quinn and Ally). However, I really think the show needs more. It needs some new “blood” who aren’t connected to the Forresters and Logans.

I’m a HUGE believer in sticking with your core families but, until recently, B&B has done it too much. At time, the show seems stale and a complete rehash of what we have seen for 20 years. I still can’t fathom why the heck the writers completely ignore Thorne Forrester and give him nothing to do while constantly giving us more Ridge and Brooke!!!

weren’t they casting a british sex kitten in her 20s recently? what happened to that? any one keep track of how many of these casting calls ACTUALLY come to fruition?

I’m late to the party, but I’d love to see Kelley Menighan Hensley. And then they could also bring in her wonderful hubby Jon – aka Dr. Meade – full-time. Win Win!!!

What does it matter? She will just be another prop for Brooke and Hope, as usual. Hope being the central character is a huge joke. And why cast new actors when they don’t use the ones they have?!

Just tired of Bill and Brooke and Wyatt! Could use an influx of story for Thorne . Wyatt is promoted far more than his value and the cheesy nature of either the story or acting makes it worse. Too much Brooke centric is destructive and the stories have suffered for it. Eric looks like a senile fool for doing her bidding all the time. Its insufferable. Brad Bell learned little from his father it would appear

Can’t wait for Wyatt’s girlfriend to show up. Bye bye Wyatt (from Hope). His “poor” momma is goingto go beserk! Can’t wait!

In story, after being away taking care of business in Paris for Forrester International, Stefffy returns home to Los Angeles with her two baby girls: Kelly and Phoebe in tow.  But when she comes back what will happen when she finds out the news about Flo (Katrina Bowden)?  Will Steffy soon learn she has Hope’s (Annika Noelle) daughter?

As fans of Jacqui know, she was on maternity leave from the CBS Daytime drama series following the birth of her first child, her son, Rise Harlen who was born on March 4th.

Wood is now juggling being a new mom, and her gig at B&B, which other daytime actresses have done before her.

But first, check out the latest B&B promo heralding Steffy’s  return, and then check out Michael Fairman TV’s red carpet and exclusive backstage interview with Jacqui immediately following her Lead Actress victory at the 46th annual Daytime Emmy Awards.

Ellen Pompeo Rips Into ‘The Bachelor’ Creator And Defends Kelly Ripa For Her Comments

Things just got juicy from daytime to primetime after Kelly Ripa let her thoughts be known about the current ‘Bachelorette’ Hannah Brown and the ‘Bachelor’ franchise during her morning show with Ryan Seacrest this week,

During a moment on the syndicated Live with Kelly and Ryan on Tuesday, Seacrest informed Ripa that the new ‘Bachelorette’ would be appearing on Thursday’s episode to which Ripa said: “You know how I feel about this show? It disgusts me. And I thought that I was disgusted because I couldn’t stand the idea of 25 exceptional women fighting over one ordinary fella, in my opinion. You know how we feel ladies! We are too special to be arguing over a guy.”  She also called the audience out for watching this “gross, gross, show.”

Following her sentiments, The Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss took to his Twitter account as did host and EP, Chris Harrison.  Fleiss said, “Easy, Kelly Ripa.  The Bachelor franchise pays for your salary.”  While Harrison tweeted: “Look out @KellyRipa⁩ is coming after you and your ‘disgusting’ Monday night habit.”

Next, none other than Grey’s Anatomy franchise star, Ellen Pompeo joined the fray.  She tweeted in defense of Ripa.  Pompeo wrote: “Okay @fleissmeister… that’s some handle bro! Your show does NOT pay @KellyRipa salary. Also we don’t attack successful women on our network and men certainly cannot take credit for their success. Don’t get me started on your show cuz I’m a savage….

And in the end on Thursday’s installment of the entertainment talk show, Hannah Brown made her guest appearance and she weighed-in on the situation expressing that she didn’t follow the franchise at first, but being on the show has changed her mind. Ripa maintained her disgust for the series.

Brown went on to say to Ripa: “Like you, I didn’t really follow the show, wasn’t a big fan, but being part of the show, it’s not women fighting against each other.  Some of my best friends came from the show and were really supportive.”

So what do you think about what Ripa, Pompeo, Brown, Harrison and Fleiss had to share with each other on their Twitter war? Comment below.
