Another celebrity will be playing a preacher on CBS Daytime's The Bold and the Beautiful. Pop culture blogger Perez Hilton revealed to TV Insider he'll be guest-starring on the half-hour sudser as the reverend officiating the nuptials of horny fashion mogul Eric Forrester (John McCook) to unstable jewelry designer Quinn Fuller (Rena Sofer).
I saw you on social media claiming B&B is one of your favorite shows. Seriously? Or were you just laying on the BS?
I love all of the soap operas. I was on All My Children as an extra back in 2000, just after I graduated acting school at NYU. I had no lines and can’t remember the situation, though if Susan Lucci had been in the scene I certainly would have remembered that. But I do remember that another extra that day was Jonathan Bennett, who ended up getting cast as a regular on AMC. Then he did Mean Girls and now he does Cupcake Wars, so both our careers have gone in crazy directions. I’m so excited that I get to go back on a soap, this time with lines, and that I get to play a minister for the second time. My first time was in a movie that came out in 2008 called Another Gay Sequel, where my part was the polar opposite of the one on B&B. For a soap wedding, you’re pretty much playing it straight but in the gay movie I was the campiest, silliest, most over-the-top gay minister ever. So it was nice, with B&B, to connect with a spiritual character in a much more legit way.
Look for Hilton to appear on the Sept. 23 and 26 episodes of B&B.
