Entertainer Wayne Brady is adding yet another notch to his resume!  The host of CBS Daytime’s Let’s Make a Deal had now been cast on The Bold and the Beautiful!

Brady, will take on the role of Zoe’s (Kiara Barnes) father, Dr. Buckingham and the part is that of a series regular.

What we do know:   The doctor is described as “worldly, intelligent, and sophisticated.”

According to EW, in story,”He quickly finds himself entangled in a web of passion and mystery after joining a Los Angeles-area hospital.”

So how did this DEAL come about? B&B head honcho, Brad Bell chatted with Brady, when Wayne’s daughter, Maile was making her debut on the soap.  Brady informed Bell he would love the chance to on the show after watching it growing up.

Wayne steps out in his new role when he begins taping tomorrow.  Look for Dr. Buckingham to begin to appear on the canvas starting with the November 30th episode.

While now being part of the cast of B&B, the network has worked it out so Brady’s tapings, do not have any impacted on his Daytime Emmy-winning gig as host of Let’s Make a Deal.

So, what do you think of Wayne being Zoe’s father on B&B? Comment below.

I think it’s absolutely ridiculous and breaks the fourth wall. First they hired the new “three interns” who can’t act their way out of a paper bag; then his daughter was on and I wouldn’t cast her in a school play, and now Wayne. Funny, likable guy but with all the trained soap actors out there…why??? Oh; and let’s not forget the brilliant casting of Sheryl Underwood who fills in as Bill’s secretary. Another person who can’t act. What are the producers at B&B thinking? Apparently, they’re not. Unless they’re hastening cancellation.

Why bother recasting Thomas or bringing back Rick, RJ; you know, Forresters when you can add all new characters who are connected to no one and haven’t got an acting credit between them.

I agree with you about the three new additions, but at least Wayne Brady has acting experience behind him (Broadway and television). I think Brad Bell is trying grab fans from Big Brother and Let’s Make a Deal.

Hey, Lew S. Yes; I like Wayne Brady. But right now he’s a game show host and he’s being brought in to expand the family of an intern who can’t act. And his real daughter? I think she was on just once so far in a scene with Emma. It was painful to watch between the two of them. Seriously; the producers of these shows, the writers, the talent coordinator; can they not see how horrible the acting is and yet they persist? Sheryl Underwood? There was not a stitch of authenticity in her performances. As I said, it seriously just breaks that fourth wall for me and I feel like I’m watching a bad play.

Wayne is cool; seems extremely nice and is a talented guy. Perhaps had he been brought on as a standalone character…but this addition to the three plus his real life daughter and the occasional appearances of Sheryl just bogs my mind…

I’d like to “make a deal” with B&B; bring on some real actors and I’ll watch one excruciating hour of Big Brother. Wait; not sure I can promise that.

I’m not a regular B&B watcher, but I tune in every once in awhile, and I have to say that the writing is so terrible that I feel like even the soap vets are acting like they’re in a bad play. The last time I tuned in was around Brooke and Ridge’s wedding. Ingo was debuting as nuThorne, and my lifelong GH-loving heart was broken by his awkward attempts to seduce Katie with all the tact of a college frat boy. Meanwhile, Kara Mosely and Jacob Young kept offering their hyper-enthusiastic blessings to the bride and groom with all the sincerity of hostages trapped in a bizarre fantasy designed by their captors. Stunt casting is just evidence that TPTB know something is wrong, but are too stupid to realize that it is the quality of the writing.

‘The Bachelor’ New Key Art Revealed Playing Up Colton Underwood’s Virginity

The upcoming season of The Bachelor does not roll out till January, when season 23 gets underway on the 7th of that month, but ABC today released its key art first poster for promotion of their latest ‘Bachelor’ Colton Underwood.

Chris Harrison host and EP of the series, posted via Instagram: “It’s now officially official and I have the official exclusive poster to prove it. Colton’s dramatic season of #TheBachelor premieres Mon Jan 7th.”

The poster has the slogan: “What does he have to lose?” and one would assume its a nod to Colton’s noted and much discussed virginity.

Viewers first met Colton in Becca Kufrin’s season 14 of The Bachelorette, where he came in as fourth runner-up.  He continued on the franchise on Bachelor In Paradise, and his controversial on and off again relationship with Tia Booth, Becca’s friend.

Just how will Colton handle kissing a bevy of ladies, the fantasy suites, and more?  Guess we will find out,and if his season will be a doozy compared to the lackluster season of Arie Luyendk Jr., until Arie dumped his choice for love Becca and went back on his word and fell back in love with the runner-up  – his now fiancee and expectant mother of his chid, Lauren Burnham.

So, what do you think of the poster art for the new season of The Bachelor? Will you be checking out Colton during his effort to find true love? Comment below.
