BREAKING NEWS: Don Diamont To Join B&B




Following his recent ousting from The Young and the Restless, the latest TV Guide (March 9-15 issue) is reporting that Don Diamont has signed on to The Bold and the Beautiful to play Bill Spencer, Jr. from April.

Whilst Bill Spencer may be a name familiar to longtime B&B viewers, there was never any mention of him having a son. How this will play out is anyone’s guess, but Joanna Johnson (ex-Caroline Spencer, ex-Karen Spencer) is reportedly returning in April, presumably to usher his new character onto the canvas.

B&B desperately needs to expand its romantic storylines beyond passing Nick, Ridge, Eric and Rick between female cast members. If the Spencer family legacy is brought into play, this could open up a lot of possibilities. With Forrester Creations and Jackie M both at the forefront on B&B right now, it should be as easy as pie to slot in someone whose family was historically connected with fashion publishing.
 
Thanks to ‘corpcamp’ on the official B&B forum for the heads up.

    YAY!!! I’m thrilled!!! I really like Don Diamont and I’m so glad he’s going to be on B&B :) I don’t care that everytime he and Heather Tom share a scene I’ll be thinking “Victoria, don’t you recognize Brad?” lol

    Is something wrong with James Storm? I loved Bill Spencer, and I don’t know why they can’t have him back for a few days.

    I hope this means they will have to fire some of their dinosaurs who no longer provide good story, like Ronn Moss or Jack Wagner.

    every thing ok but I’m just wondering how they will explain existence of Bill Spencer, Jr. ???? I remember Bill, Caroline even Karen but there was never any Junior mention

    I love it. I wish that he hook up with Brooke because I am so sick of Bridge that I going to throw up from see them together every day. Don D and KKL would be hot and fresh together, or hook him up with Felicia. Lesli needs a s/l and a love interest.

    Guess you beat me to it Darren! *LOL* I’m glad that Don landed a job so fast and at least he’s not a Forrester or a LOGAN! I just pray they don’t have him saddled with that damn Taylor! LORD DO NOT DO THAT!

    Uh Oh!!!! I’m on the West Coast so AMC better pull a rabbit out of a hat pretty soon ot i’m gonna have to start tuning into to B&B to see my Donny! He’s gonna turn those women who have all been lusting after Ridge and Rick on their ear. I can’t think of another soap that needs another male lead more.

    Joanna Johnson is returning???? That is the big story! She was phenomenal as Caroline. I stopped watching B&B eons ago, so I guess that I’ll have to tune back in..when her scenes air. Please do post the dates.

    As for Bill Jr, if memory serves me right, he is the son of Margo and Bill Spencer Sr.

    Glad to see Don land a new role so soon. Wonder if it will turn out Bill Junior and Brad are twin brothers separated at birth. (Ashley was just in LA—won’t anyone recognize the father of her child?)

    Between Joanna Johnson, Don Diamont, and Martha Byrne I will definitely be tuning into BB. Let’s hope Bradley Bell FINALLY is turning things around over there.

    Margo’s son is Dr. Mark MacClaine portrayed by Michael Dietz and he is Clark Garrison’s son not Bill. Bill Spencer Jr was never mention
