Here's a flashback to Rick Hearst's comedic turn on The Bold and the Beautiful. Hearst played wisecracking PR flack Whip Jones, who married Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang) to help the fashionista pass her unborn child off as his, and not the child of Deacon Sharpe (Sean Kanan), who just so happened to be married to Brooke's daughter, Bridget (then-Jennifer Finnigan). Thanks BandBTerry for the clip!
Remember my exclusive interview last December with former General Hospital and The Bold and the Beautiful hearttrob Sean Kanan, the one where I suggested his popular B&B bad boy Deacon Sharpe should cross over to The Young and the Restless?
DC: If Deacon can't make a return visit to the fictional Los Angeles universe of the Forresters and Logans, what about him showing up in Genoa City? Your former onscreen partner-in-crime Adrienne Frantz (Amber Moore) is doing the work of her career on The Young and the Restless. Would you consider taking Deacon to the other Bell soap?
SK: I would absolutely love to do Y&R. I loved working with Adrienne. She is an amazingly-talented person. It would be great to have Amber and Deacon mixing it up again. READ MORE

General Hospital and The Bold and Beautiful alum Sean Kanan is thinking a lot about sex these days. He has to, it's part of his job description. Kanan is starring in It's Just Sex, a daring, comedic exploration about what can happen when three couples decide to switch partners. The play runs through Dec. 28 at the Two Roads Theatre in Studio City, Ca.
Daytime Confidential recently caught up with Kanan about his role in It's Just Sex, as well as his new movie Jack Rio, and his time in Port Charles as Quartermaine bad seed A.J. We also reminisce about his memorable stint as Deacon Sharpe, the man who notoriously deflowered a young Bridget Forrester (then-Jennifer Finnigan) while he had her father Eric (John McCook) muted on speaker phone, and later sired baby Hope with Bridget's own mother, the sexsational Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang).
