The Bold and the Beautiful...and the hilarious? Comedy great Fred Willard has been set for a four-episode guest appearance on the hit CBS soap opera playing John Forrester, younger brother of fashion king Eric Forrester (John McCook). John is also the father of jewelry designer Ivy Forrester (Ashleigh Brewer), the show's new Aussie beauty who was recently brought to America by Eric to help out with the family business.
When you have this much talent, you just have to spread it around. This fall, Emmy-winning soap sensation Eileen Davidson will find herself in the enviable and unprecedented position of playing juicy, front-burner roles on both NBC's Days of Our Lives and CBS's The Young and the Restless. Why such generosity of spirit on the part of rival networks? It's all about survival — and we don't mean Davidson's.
Bob Barker on The Bold and the Beautiful
The price is wrong, bitch! Game show icon Bob Barker will spoof his classic fight scene from Happy Gilmore — the one where he beat the bejesus out of Adam Sandler — on the Thursday, Aug. 28 episode of CBS's The Bold and the Beautiful. The plot has bad boy Wyatt Spencer (Darin Brooks) foolishly mouthing off about Barker's pet cause — pets! Not only does TV Guide Magazine have an exclusive video preview of the resulting smackdown (below), we also spoke to the 90-year-old Barker to get all the deets.
The Young and the Restless has finally found its Adam Newman! TV Guide Magazine can exclusively report that, after an extensive casting search, the part of the presumed-dead Genoa City troublemaker has gone to former Smallville and Revenge star Justin Hartley. The actor will report for work at the CBS soap in late September and is scheduled to hit the air during November sweeps.
Kim Matula. Darin Brooks
Sound the trumpets! Hope Logan has finally made up her mind. Daytime's splashiest soap opera, CBS's The Bold and the Beautiful, went on location to Paris and Monte Carlo to shoot the conclusion of a year-long triangle that has the love-torn heroine (played by Kim Matula) deciding which of two Spencer brothers she's going to wed. Will it be flaky sweetheart Liam (Scott Clifton) or feisty opportunist Wyatt (Darin Brooks)? Spoiler alert! Though Hope is seemingly committed to Liam right now, she will end up married to Wyatt by the end of the episode airing Wednesday, Aug. 13.
