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.

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.

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.

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?
