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."
Of course the other question now becomes "who will Brandon Beemer and Texas Battle be paired with"? One would assume that with Rick Forrester is in a relationship with Taylor that pairing one or both men's new characters with Phoebe could be expected. Unless of course the show has intentions to bring in another young starlett. Then it would be any one's guess as to who might end up with whom.
