Comings & Goings
The Bold and the Beautiful sure seems to be doing a lot of casting lately. According to Soaps in Depth, the CBS soap put out a casting call for the character of Tom, "who is 40-50 years old and is described as a mischievous ladies' man and a bit of a troublemaker."
Big Brother fan favorite Howard Overby may have gotten the boot from the game, but he received one heck of a consolation prize. Overby has landed an upcoming guest stint on The Bold and the Beautiful. The reality star chatted with TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan about what viewers can expect from his role.
TV Guide Magazine: I hear you're playing the DJ/Host on Karaoke Night at the Bikini Bar, when Wyatt and Hope drop by with some of the Forrester Creations international buyers.
Overby: Getting to work with Darin Brooks and Kim Matula was great. We get a real happy-go-lucky, very sexual but laid-back vibe going in the bar. To be at CBS with all that soap-opera and game-show history was a frickin' dream, man! I've done some plays and a little extra work in films with Sylvester Stallone and Nicolas Cage, and have always wanted do more acting. [Laughs] So let's pray for that, America! While I was at CBS, I got to meet Kristoff St. John [Neil] from The Young and the Restless. The whole day I had goosebumps. Rachel Reilly, Brendon Villegas and Jeff Schroeder from Big Brother are also in the same episodes, plus Malcolm Freberg from Survivor.
Soap alum Martha Byrne has landed herself a primetime role. The As The World Turns star tweeted she has signed on to NBC’s upcoming Dermot Mulroney and Gillian Anderson crime drama Crisis. Byrne tweeted:
Crisis centers on students at an elite Washington, D.C.—including the President's son—who become victims of a kidnapping. So far, no word on Byrne's role. Check out a little taste of what's to come on the freshman series after the jump! READ MORE
