And the New Bachelor Is …

Chris Soules

ABC has chosen Chris Soules as the next star of The Bachelor, it was announced Wednesday on Good Morning America.

"I was humbled, flattered, grateful," he said during the reveal. "Coming from a small town I never expected to have this opportunity to be on either show, let alone be the lead on The Bachelor. So it's been awesome."

Soules, 32, became a fan-favorite on the most recent season of The Bachelorette and made it to the Final 3. During his fantasy suite date with Andi, she decided to let him go before the night was over. Following his exit, the Iowa farmer told us, "It's OK to [be vulnerable]. When I get the opportunity with the right person, I can do that and still survive if it doesn't work out and still do it again. This helped me learn a lot about myself and how to cope and put yourself in situations and manage it as an adult and without family and friends. I know it helped me grow."

Sneak Peek: Scott Bakula Previews NCIS: New Orleans

Scott Bakula

If you're seeking a metaphor for acting, you couldn't do much better than the body-jumping premise of Quantum Leap. In the 21 years since that series went off the air, its star, Scott Bakula, has leaped into a striking array of characters, with an initial emphasis on more sci-fi (Star Trek: Enterprise) eventually offset by a turn toward naturalistic dramedy (Men of a Certain Age). But playing a cop on a network procedural? Inexplicably, that seemingly inevitable move had proven a leap too far.

This oversight has finally been rectified with Bakula's role as the lead in NCIS: New Orleans, premiering on CBS Sept. 23 in the coveted Tuesday time slot immediately following the franchise's flagship series...
