Photo Credit: JPI Studios

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,… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

” hyper-enthusiastic blessings to the bride and groom with all the sincerity of hostages trapped in a bizarre fantasy designed by their captors.”

Please go back to let’s make a deal, and who’s line. That’s what he’s good at. This is NOT something he makes believable.

The interns need to go. None of these kids can act. I am sick of watching all this nutty drama. Let’s get back to being who the shows about. Must be. Having a hard time writing a story line and putting in tooo much filler !!!!

I think Wayne Brady is an excellent addition BUT if he takes Hope and Liam’s baby away from them, then I’m not watching the show anymore. Firstly, Wayne is a Doctor and it’s ridiculous to think he would steel a child. Secondly, this is not real life and it would suit B&B to stick to reality. I’ve watched this show since it’s first episode and I can say I’m disgusted with some of the story lines like Hooe and Liam. Let them be happy for at least a little while for goodness sake. It took them so long to FINALLY… Read more »

I came upon this conversation because I googled.. “Is Wayne Brady broke?” First he’s doing the clearing house sweepstakes commercials, and then he’s on B&B. Maybe he’s just doing “easy” things to continue dealing with his depression. He’s so talented. I’m sure he’ll find his way back to something great soon!

I think Wayne Brady is a great game show host but have no idea why he would risk jeopardizing his image with the part he is playing on The Bold and Beautiful. I have heard that he is a good actor but in my opinion he is one of the worst actors I have seen. Bod and Beautiful needs to bring on more actors, but please, get someone who can act! I agree with the others on Sheryl Underwood and Zoe as well. Bring back Thomas and Caroline. At least they can act. Better yet, get a new writer! B&B… Read more »

‘Port Charles’ Star Jay Pickett Dead at 60

UPDATED:  Just heartbreaking news over the weekend.  Former Port Charles star and soap veteran, Jay Pickett died suddenly while filming a movie.  His cause of death was not immediately known, although in a post on Sunday from Travis Mills it appears to have been from a heart attack. Pickett was 60-years-old.  On Sunday, former co-stars have shared their remembrances while mourning Jay including Michael Easton, Kelly Monaco, Michael Dietz, Marie Wilson, Kin Shriner and more.

In addition to his most remembered role on daytime as Frank Scanlon on the GH spinoff, Port Charles, where he appeared in over 762 episodes, Pickett also appeared on GH replacing Ted King as Lorenzo Alcazar and came back to the show in 2006-07 in the recurring role of Detective David Harper.  Jay also spent time on Days of our Lives as Dr. Chip Lakin and appeared on primetime’s Desperate Housewives and Queen Sugar countless other TV series and films.

Word of Pickett’s death first came via Facebook from Jim Heffel who is the film’s co-producer, who shared along with these images (see below): “Yesterday I lost a good friend and the world lost a great person. Jay Pickett decided to ride off into the Heavens. Jay died sitting on a horse ready to rope a steer in the movie Treasure Valley in Idaho. The way of a true cowboy. Jay wrote the story and starred in it. He was also coproducer with myself and Vernon Walker. He will be truly missed. Ride like the wind partner.”

Michael Dietz, who played Pickett’s on-screen brother, Joe Scanlon on Port Charles shared his grief on the news on Facebook, expressing: “My greatest friend has sadly left this world. We met when we were cast as brothers on Port Charles many, many years ago. He played my big brother on TV but that carried over into real life and an amazing friendship that was one of a kind. He was an incredible husband, father, friend, and godfather to my daughter. Everyone that knew him loved him. I love you, Jay. Keep smiling my friend. All my love to his family, who truly became our family as well. You will be forever missed.”

Kin Shriner (Scott, GH) and Jay’s former co-star at Port Charles shared: “The sudden passing of my pal Jay Pickett Is very sad . He loved acting and Westerns , and when we got together we laughed a lot . R.I.P. Jay”

Kelly Monaco (Ex-Livvie, PC and now Sam, GH) shared on her Instagram:  “My heart goes out to the family and friends of Jay Pickett. If you knew him, you loved him. Words can’t describe…”

Michael Easton (Ex-Caleb/Michael PC, and now Finn on GH) expressed: “Mourning the loss of our friend and colleague. I first met Jay in Margie Haber’s acting class in the late 80’s and was fortunate to get to work with him many times over the next thirty years. He was a wonderful actor but an even better person. My deepest condolences to his wife and his children, his friends and all of his fans. Rest in peace, Brother.”

Marie Wilson (Ex-Karen, Port Charles) shared: “This is one of the most difficult posts I’ve done. My heart is broken to hear that this incredible person has passed. Words cannot described how much you touched my life….your friendship, advice, and support made me feel so grateful and lucky. My first day on the set was with us having a water fight ….and the fun adventures continued from there. So happy to have shared all those moments with you. I will miss you my friend!”

Travis Mills from the film Treasure Valley, in which Pickett was filming at the time of his death, shared on Sunday morning this updated message on Facebook: “Many of you have already heard about the tragedy that happened two days ago. Jay Pickett, our leading man, writer, producer, and creator of this movie passed away suddenly while we were on location preparing to film a scene. There is no official explanation for the cause of his death but it appears to have been a heart attack. Everyone present tried as hard as they could to keep him alive. Our hearts are broken and we grieve for his family who are so devastated by this shocking tragedy.  As so many of us know, Jay was an incredible man. He was kind, sweet, and generous. He was one of the best actors I ever worked with and it was an honor to collaborate with him. Everyone who met him, even for the briefest moment, could feel his warmth, his wonderful spirit. It is difficult to find the words right now to say more. His closest friends have said that he was very happy making Treasure Valley and my hope is that he truly was. He was doing what he loved: acting, riding horses, making movies. And he was magnificent.”

Jay is survived by his wife, Elena, and their three children, Maegan, Michaela and Tyler.

We will have more on this continuing story as remembrances for Pickett are shared, and updated on news of his passing.
