EXCLUSIVE: Zack Conroy's Oliver Jones to Crossover From Bold and Beautiful to The Young and the Restless!



 




The Young and the Restless' fashion storyline, featuring Jabot Cosmetics branching off into the garment trade, is heating up. It only makes sense that daytime's top soap would get a little help from its glitzy, sister sudser The Bold and the Beautiful. I've learned Zack Conroy is set to crossover from B&B to Y&R as in demand fashion photographer Oliver Jones!

Hunky Conroy, who got his soapy start on Guiding Light, will tape his Y&R scenes in mid-April. He is set to begin airing on Tuesday, May 21. As of right now, he's slated for at least two Y&R episodes!

Great crossover opp.

I think Jill should hire Carmine as a male model for Fenmores. That would create some tension for Lauren!

Oh yeah, please start using this boy. With Y&R's teen set, Oliver could drive much more story over there.

It's great that B&B and Y&R keep doing crossovers. And it makes more sense now than ever before with Jabot's fashion division.

This is deja vu! WOW! I was just watching "Character Profiles" and this was a new one of "James Spaulding"! Shock I loved him as James and he & Grant, Beth & Emme made a great family (of actor wise) and was hitting his stride w\Grant but alas was GL last new hire and way to short. There was such potential for James being a Spaulding....this is great news. Lot more available girls on Y&R compared to B&B...I wouldn't mind if they weave into the canvas and stays.

He should get a one way ticket to Genoa City and start apartment hunting because there is nothing going on for him in LA. I think he and Chloe could make a good couple.

Wonder if he'll be interacting with Summer? It could be cool if he started flirting with Summer and Kyle got jealous. Most of the triangles on soaps are two women fighting over a guy. It would nice to see two men fighting over a woman for a change. Since he's not really being used on B&B, I wouldn't mind seeing him stick around Genoa City.

That idea sounds pretty brilliant, actually.

As for Oliver, I do somehow see the possibility of him connecting with Summer, on some level. It makes sense since she's recently been removed to the fashion division.

I can see Oliver either being the third side of a triangle or the one who consoles Summer if/when she discovers that the object of her affection is actually a relative Wink

shanyboo, they already have 3 male-female-male triangles going...Michael-Lauren-Carmine, Cane-Lily-Tyler, and Nick-Avery-Dylan. Do they really need another one?

Thnx MsAgent....it could tie into Jabot's launch as well.

I'd like for Lauren to get jealous as the female models interact with him.

I hope he sticks around. Oliver is being wasted on B&B. On Y&R, he could romance Summer or Abby. Heck, he could even bust up Kevin and Chloe's boring marriage.

Sounds like you love Lame Liam about as much as I do. I wish that punk ass would never show his face again.

This Oliver person looks like he should be the new Kyle Abbott. He's got that refined handsomeness of Peter Bergman, and the distinctive 'lively' look of Susan Walters.

Y&R can have "Oliver" he does nothing on B&B anyway, Oh I forgot, he's a talkto for Hope when Liam doesn't want to be bothered I guess and was in ONE scene all year.

He's yet to appear on B and B since I started watching almost a month ago now. Not as hot as Thomas. It'll be interesting to see how he's used, or if it is just a quick in and out like they did with Eric.

IMO that was a waste of a crossover. It really added nothing. Sorry.

I think Bell, CBS, Sony all could be testing waters (as IE Amber)...and if he fits Oliver could be used in a way for to the newest Abbott heiress...Summer...hmmmm Wink

After he slept with Brooke...that was the end of good old Oliver. But then again, it's the end for all the male characters on that show. Even ole' Ridge is gone now.

Where is his recast, by the way? I hope they hurry up and recast Ridge because I don't want any chances of Ron Moss coming back!!!!! He made the show an even bigger joke than it already was at the time.

As for Zack Conroy...he's okay. He hasn't had much to do on B&B in forever. He was Hope's first "Destiny". She daydreamed about HIM, and all of her conversations were about him and her virginity. Then he smashed Brooke up against a wall in the middle of a party. Insert Lame ass punk ass wack ass Liam...who came on as a nerdy pushover. Now suddenly he's a womanizing pushover...but still as lame, wack, and a bigger punk than ever.

I could see Oliver Jones on Y&R. Depends on what his age will be though. because I think he was a little older than HOPE when they were dating...which would make him probably like mid 20's, right??? or older...probably a decade older than Summer. But IDK. Who cares about age on this show anyway?
