Ian Buchanan and Hunter Tylo by Brian Lowe/jpistudios.com
Remember that wild '90s plot on CBS' The Bold and the Beautiful when famed psychiatrist James Warwick shockingly revealed he was a virgin and the gorgeous Taylor deflowered him in the rubble of a massive earthquake? "Well, I'm about to repay the favor," Ian Buchanan says. The actor returns to his Emmy-winning role as Warwick on Jan. 28 for a short-term stint that has him helping the troubled Taylor (played by Hunter Tylo).

"By the time I arrive, she's hitting the sauce pretty bad and having hallucinations," reports Buchanan, who hopes a cure doesn't come too quickly, what with the writers' strike crippling prime time. "I feel like changing the dialogue to say, 'Gee, Taylor's in worse shape than I thought. This could take me a year.'" - Michael Logan
