The Bold and the Beautiful Recasting Thomas Forrester: Who Would You Suggest For The Part?

Courtesy/CBS

Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) and Taylor’s (Hunter Tylo) son, Thomas Forrester is on his way back to the canvas, and the CBS daytime drama series has put out a casting call to find the next man to play the role.

According to Daytime Confidential, in the casting breakdown that was circulated, the show commented that it is looking for someone to play the contract role who has “Strong credits only.”

B&B viewers know that the last actor to play Thomas was Pierson Fodé, who was extremely popular in the role.  Pierson played the part from 2015-2017.

So, time for you to put your casting director hats on and let us know, who would you like to see play Steffy’s (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood)  brother on The Bold and the Beautiful? Anyone with previous daytime, or from primetime television  experience, that you think fits the bill?

Share your thoughts for who should be the new Thomas via the comment section below.

An another triangle for Wyatt . The new actor will be fired in one year! I liked Pierson Fodé! Where are Rick, Deacon, Amber, Deacon Jr, Felicia, Kristen…? I hate Steffy, Liam, Hope, the new interns… This soap is a disaster! BradleyBell has ruined this show with the Spencers. It’s a shame! The Steffy’s show is over for me! Very bad writting! Very bad actors: Scott Clifton, Nia Sioux, JMW… Goodbye!

I do agree with you that B&B seems off the rails. Seems there is frequently hype about a new addition or return only to have it wave in the wind and soon be forgotten. Won’t claim to understand the economics or craft of soap opera writing, but I am disappointed in so many B&B characters with story potential sidelined or forgotten. And plots that endlessly turn on a triangle/quadrangle that lacks romance, passion or commitment to make twists and turn matter. I would like more stories that deal more with the business, the LA culture (Hollywood, politics), and more.

Thank you so much for bringing up Amber. To this day i still get pissed that she just went off the canvas with no mention. Just phased her out after she carried alot of story back in the day.

I totally agree he’d make a good Thomas

It literally does not matter who is cast. I wouldn’t wish the role on any of my favorite actors anyway. With the exception of a few core actors, employment on B&B should be considered strictly short term and / or part-time. Plus, the writing is a joke and the repetition is mind numbing. Good luck to the next new Thomas.

Ryan Paevey. No brainier.

I nominate Michael Rourke. Most of us have seen (quite a lot of him) in Magic Mike, but he played Travis, Victoria’s friend, on Y&R. I liked him a lot, but guess tptb didn’t agree. I think with his hair a little darker, he’d make a good Thomas, if he comes back from N.Y sans Caroline. Can’t stand that girl, who is wearing out her welcome as Emily, on Days.

Adam Gregory needs to come back. He is stunning and the best Thomas. Pierson is a close second.

Joan Collins!

With a baseball cap, a sweatshirt, and some dimly lit sets, this octogenarian actress easily could play the role of 30-ish lothario.

Can hardly stand to watch it anymore the storylines go nowhere same vicious cycles. It doesn’t matter who they bring in as Thomas it will be another 3 way with Sally, Wyatt and Thomas, they will do what they did with Liam , Steffy and Hope.

The old Thomas was awesomel. I understand that this Thomas is part of the Bell family but he plays a horrible Thomas. Bring back Pierson Fode!!

Actually any of the other actors who played Thomas would be an improvement.

Emmy Winner and Noted Soap Opera Head Writer; Hogan Sheffer Passes Away At 61

Over the last several hours, reports have broke that one of daytime’s most notable scribes has died.  Hogan Sheffer, who was head writer at As the World Turns, Days of our Lives and The Young and the Restless has passed away at the age of 61.

Soap Hub, first reported the news via multiple sources, however, many writers who worked with Hogan during his tenure on the soaps have taken to social media to share their condolences and their grief and remembrances.

Sheffer’s appearance on the soap scene was unexpected, especially in a genre where it is often rare for new blood to take the reins at the head writer position.  Proctor & Gamble had decided to bring in Hogan after his work as the Director of Screenplay Development for DreamWorks, not because of his writing credits for a previous network soap.  He was given trial deal as a breakdown writer for the CBS soap and 10-weeks in became the beloved town of Oakdale’s new head writer.

Hogan and his then writing team were able to turn the classic, As the World Turns around.  The show went up in the ratings and during his time with the series ‘World Turn’s’ won two Daytime Emmys for Outstanding Drama Series, and he and the writing team picked up four Emmy victories all through 2000-2004.

Next, Sheffer landed in Salem as head writer of Days of our Lives along with Meg Kelly from 2006 through to the beginning of 2008.   He would later join The Young and the Restless and team up with then head writers: Maria Arena Bell and Scott Hamner, and eventually stay with the show till 2012.  During Sheffer’s time in Genoa City, Y&R also won a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Writing in 2011.

On Sunday, former WWE and daytime writer Tom Casiello, who was extremely close with Sheffer…  and who shared how Hogan gave him his start at writing in daytime, took to his Facebook page to pay tribute to a man who had such an impact on his life and many others.  It is worth the read here. 

Y&R writer, Sara Bibel tweeted: “Hogan Sheffer was a gamechanger for ATWT and daytime. Everyone I know who worked with him adored him. RIP”

And, iconic ATWT star, Martha Byrne (Ex-Lily) tweeted on Sheffer’s passing: “To say he was one of a kind would be a tremendous understatement. Our years at ATWT with Hogan at the helm were a rebirth for our beautiful show. Loved his writers, actors,crew. Blessed to have him on the first floor in Brooklyn ready to listen. Talented. Funny. Generous. RIP”

Colleen Zenk (Ex-Barbara, ATWT) also took to Twitter upon learning of the passing of Sheffer sharing: “I loved him, loved him, loved him… he was so good to me. Thank you for everything, Hogan. You were so loved. Especially, by me… Rest in peace…”
