My, my! Who knew the Forrester patriarch had such a baudy sense of humor? The Bold and the Beautiful's John McCook gave a hilariously filthy interview to TV Guide's Michael Logan, discussing his upcoming appearance on The Young and the Restless.
Sorry, old schoolers; McCook won't be playing tight, swim trunks sporter Lance Prentiss—the role he played during Y&R's early years—instead, Eric Forrester is heading to Genoa City to design Nikki Newman's (Melody Thomas Scott) 12th wedding gown!
Here are a few snippets from the chat:
TV Guide Magazine: So has Eric outdone himself with the dress? This is wedding No. 12 for our Miss Nikki. She's gotta look damn fine!
McCook: It's another Forrester classic! It's not a dress for an 18-year-old girl. It's a grownup dress for a grownup woman. Melody Thomas Scott looked beautiful. It had a nice train on it. [Laughs] That's about all I know. It had a train! I was too busy sweating my ass off to notice anything else. They sat me next to a roaring fireplace during the ceremony. I'm, like, "What the f--k? Couldn't you put somebody else by the fire...like somebody under 60?" The actors from Y&R refused to sit there so they gave the chair to the poor guy from the other soap across the hall. I was sweating so bad people thought Eric was nervous about the dress. I said, "That's not nerves. I'm roasting to death!" But, otherwise, I had a great time. Eric has scenes with Lauren and Michael, Neil, and Victor and Nikki, of course. Eric Braeden was in a very good mood that day. [Pause] Uh...I don't mean to imply that's unusual. [Laughs]
TV Guide Magazine: We must talk about your sexcapades on B&B. Eric is already shacking up with Taylor [Hunter Tylo], just three months after the death of Stephanie [Susan Flannery]. And Stephanie and Taylor were BFFs! Too trashy!
McCook: [Laughs] I was trying to keep a little dignity. I didn't want Eric jumping into bed with just any available set of boobs, but he's a horndog and he's been alone for 12 weeks. That's eons in soap time! Hey, he wasn't getting any from Stephanie. He's probably gone five years without sex. Her death freed him up to sniff around the neighborhood. Yeah, people are shocked, but we need this kind of tension and excitement on our show. Any publicity is good publicity, as long as I don't have to look at it. I don't go online because it scares the s--t out of me. I don't want to hear all that negative stuff. I'm just happy to contribute to the show and be working in a storyline that impacts a lot of characters. I don't need the rest of it.
