How do you solve a problem like Donna? How do you catch her in a lie and pin her down? How do you find a word that means harlot? A flibbertijibbet! A will-o'-the wisp! A clown!
Apparently the Forrester three think they've found a way to nail Donna by telling their dad that Marcus is her son before she does. Is it wrong that I'm actually enjoying Ron Moss as Ridge in this storyline? For once his role as golden son and prince of Bellair is actually entertaining and doesn't require I grit my teeth in annoyance. It's amazing how Ridge can feel so entitled some times though.
Of course Leslie Kaye and Winsor Harmon shine with what little they're given but I have to ask, would the revelation that Marcus is Donna's son be that much better if we the viewers truly felt that there was something at stake in this storyline? READ MORE
The Bold and the Beautiful's Donna Logan Forrester (Jennifer Gareis) got the shock of her nubile, sex kitten life when a very flesh and blood blast from her past turned up on her Forrerster mansion doorstep this past week. Texas Battle recently made his debut as Marcus, the biracial child Donna gave up for adoption as a teen. I weigh in on these developments, as well as the news that former Days hunk and Daytime Confidential podcast guest Brandon Beemer's new character Owen will be connected to Marcus, in a new blog post at The Bold and the Beautiful's official website. Register for the site and let me know what you guys think!
Just week's after we asked former Days of Our Lives' star Brandon Beemer here on the Daytime Confidential podcast about online speculation that he may be headed to the Bold & Beautiful and were told "nothing is set in stone" comes word that he has officially joined the cast of the West Coast soap.
According to Soap Opera Digest Brandon Beemer has been cast in the role of a new character.
It would seem that Brad Bell may be wanting to beef up the young hunk quotient on the #2 rated soap with the additions of Brandon Beemer and Texas Battle (read Texas Battle story here) to the cast. This shouldn't come as much of a surprise considering most of the show's current hunks (excluding Kyle Lowder and the rarely seen Mykel Shannon) are getting a bit "long-in-the-tooth" to still be passed off as "young hunks."

Daytime Dial is reporting that Texas Battle has joined the cast of the Bold & Beautiful to play the role of Marcus.
Word has it that Marcus has a connection to Donna and it is believed that he may be her illegitimate son.
Most of you may know Battle for his roles in Coach Carter, One Tree Hill and Final Destination 3.
He currently has three movies; Dragonball, Hitting the Bricks and Let's Ride and a TV show called Hydra in the works.
The addition of Battle's character will add some much needed diversity to a Bold and the Beautiful core family, the Logans, something we here at Daytime Confidential have discussed on our podcast on several occasions.
Below is a clip of Battle in Final Destination 3 and here is a link to another a Texas Battle Tribute you may want to check out.
