Some major B&B casting news today via Soap Opera Digest.   The series is recasting the role of Thomas Forrester, the son of Taylor and Ridge last played by Adam Gregory!

When last seen Thomas left Los Angeles to head to Paris.  The role had originally been a prominent role, especially when the hot younger Forrester had a psychedelic-berry experience with one Brooke Logan Forrester (Katherine Kelly Lang).

In the casting call that has been circulated the part is calling for:  “A handsome, tall, Caucasian man in his 20s with a great physique for the part, which is tentatively schedule to begin in June.”

So, put your casting director hats on and put together your wish list and let us know, which hunky young actor would you like to see play the part … or, who would you want the powers-that-be to consider for the role?  Post your thoughts in the comment section below!

    Agree Adam if he’s available, if not I would love Freddie Smith (ex DOOL’s Sonny Kiriakas). He really looks the part and is a fantastic actor.

    Adam Gregory, for me, was a miscast into the role of Thomas Forrester. I would suggest Robert Gorrie (ex-Matthew, OLTL) in the part of Thomas. I’m happy that they’re re-building Ridge’s family around him. Though, I am dying for a SORAS of R.J., especially with Hope being absent from the canvas. I’m excited about this, though. They should explore his sexuality, too. It still baffles me that in a fashion company and family, not a single one has turned out to be gay or even bisexual. B&B is cutting-edge with the trans storyline, but I would love to see a Forrester come out of the closet, and the backlash it may get from the press.

    Always love reading your posts, friend. Agree with you on the gay Forrester idea.

    Am happy to see Thomas return but B&B is only a half-hour serial. I would like a solid core of characters and have them used and maybe weed out the periphery. Not into 13 weeks of something only to have it peter out. Conversely, I do not want years of the same story playing out either (Liam, Hope, Steffy, Wyatt). Let’s shape up and ship out. I miss the B&B of old somewhat.

    The Forrester’s have been sleeping with each other for 27 years. They have had no time to think about same sex sex. I agree…Robert Gorrie would be good. But knowing B and B….they will hire some unknown with impeccable pecs and vastly limited acting skills. One actor I am impressed with is the guy playing Pete Ross on GH. Not sure he would fit as Thomas….he is blonde….but he is funny and quirky and makes unusual choices and I hope he finds a role in daytime somewhere.

    Yes, he’s very good.

    I was always disappointed that they didn’t better use the lesbian storyline. With Days & GH having gay storylines I wish BB would make someone like Hope or Steffy (not necessarily them but like them) bi or lesbian.

    I saw Adam just a few weeks ago modeling something on QVC. I was quite surprised. I thought he was fine as Thomas and I’m sorry BB seems to want to go elsewhere.

    What’s the point?

    They only showcase the Logan clan.

    They had the perfect Thomas, and they did not use him. What a waste!

    Don’t know if he is still on Y&R or not, but the young man who played Austin on that show might make a decent Thomas. I don’t know too many young soap actors anymore, all the ones that were young when I was young are now way too old for the role– LOL. But I am glad they are bringing the character back-

    Matthew Atkinson is the actor’s name who played Austin on #YR. But I wouldn’t mind seeing Casey Diedrick either!

    I’m really happy that they are re-building Ridge’s family in a sense because Adam Gregory made a lot of sense when it was Ron Moss playing Ridge but now with Thorstan Kaye they do need to update a bit. JMW already fits she looks so much like Taylor and could easier pass for TK’s daughter plus she is an amazing actress so thats great but It’s good to see Thomas back & I hope when they do the casting they look at NuRidge & Taylor and Steffy & try to get someone that fits in & looks like he could definitely make sense because lets admit the person who played Phoebe back in 2006-2008 whilst very talented didn’t really make sense even with them changing Steffy & Phoebe from identical to fraternal twins. Plus the show has has been missing some more guys to change it up. As for who it could be I’m really no sure maybe someone completely new to the Daytime Soap world would be interesting. Kim Matula was a newcomer when she first started so maybe that might be good. However someone should make a list of who could possible fit the role well

    Take Chad Duell….please! GH needs to do a recast of their own when it comes to the role of Michael (Corinthos) Quartermaine!

    I hope this means we will be phasing out the Logan-centric era of this show.

    As much as I love the character of Brooke, the show cannot be centered around her and her Hope-less daughter anymore.

    I never really loved Drew Tyler Bell in the role. He’s a good actor but not totally right for the part. Adam Gregory, though, fit the role much better I think. He’s a good actor and definitely has the physique for the role, so I don’t understand why they want to recast instead of bring him back. I think Casey Deidrick would be great in the role, or maybe even Rob Wilson if they can take him away from DAYS.

    Bring Adam Gregory back!!They just gave him bad storylines after the Brooke affair, I loved him as Thomas, amazing actor and one of the hottest, perfect to be Ridge’s son, just write something interesting and bring him back
