HomeTVThe Bold and the BeautifulBREAKING NEWS: Don Diamont To Join B&B Darren Lomas March 4, 2009 The Bold and the Beautiful, The Young and The Restless 24 Comments 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. 24 Responses daisyclover1938 March 4, 2009 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 Log in to Reply Carol2 March 4, 2009 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. Log in to Reply ewka March 4, 2009 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 Log in to Reply siomonstuart2003 March 4, 2009 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.

Bill Spencer Jr/Felicia Forrester/Jake McClaine triangle. Anyone feeling that one? Log in to Reply season1217 March 4, 2009 Please let him be an urbane sophisticate and not a slut who needs to get tested monthly. Log in to Reply Chez_44 March 4, 2009 Alright this is awesome news :bigsmile: Log in to Reply Jillian Bowe March 4, 2009 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! Log in to Reply siomonstuart2003 March 4, 2009 Season, you are crazy. I agree, I hope he don’t become the next man whore on the show. We got enough of them on here. And keep him away from the plastic slut, Donna. Log in to Reply jpp1975 March 4, 2009 There might finally be a non-icky, non-kinda-incestuous couple to root for now! Yay! I hope that Felicia gets him. Log in to Reply THEBEST March 4, 2009 Don Diamont + Lesli Kay = Orgasmic possibilities!!!! Log in to Reply soaphunks March 4, 2009 YAHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! Log in to Reply toytoy74 March 4, 2009 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. Log in to Reply Phaine March 4, 2009 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. Log in to Reply THEBEST March 4, 2009 Hopefully, with Martha Byrne writing the scripts & the show revisiting history, B&B can pull their asses out of the fire. Log in to Reply THEBEST March 4, 2009 I always wanted Mark to come back and heat up an exam room with Bridget. J) Log in to Reply traceylee9 March 4, 2009 OH THANK YOU GOD, FOR GIVING SOMEONE THE NEED TO HIGHER DON, NEW BLOOD IN THE SHOW, AND THE MAN IS WORTH IT, THIS MAY JUST SAVE B&B!!!!!!AND IS RON MOSS JUST ACTING THAT BAD NOW ON PURPUSE…LOL Log in to Reply AlistairCrane March 4, 2009 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?) Log in to Reply THEBEST March 4, 2009 Maybe Biil Jr. & Thorne could hook up. That would finally give the real Forrester heir some needed attention from his parents. Log in to Reply snizzle March 4, 2009 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.
