Looks like the Marone family may have just gotten even smaller on the hit CBS sudser, The Bold and the Beautiful! There are various reports from sources , and on the “all things Jack Wagner ” website, Wagner World, that the soap superstar may have been taken off contract by the series! In lieu of the fact that B&B had dropped Lesley-Anne Down (Jackie M.) to recurring as well as Brandon Beemer (Owen), and that Wagner’s Nick has not had a major storyline in quite some time, it would appear that the series has decided to shake some things up on their canvas.
Sources reached out to On-Air On-Soaps saying that they believe Wagner learned last week that his contract was not being extended, while at a music date at The Mohegan Sun. There are also reports circling that B&B offered Wagner a chance to go recurring, but only if he would not appear on any other daytime series.
If any of this does prove to be true, and Wagner is taken off contract at B&B, it would be a perfect time for the new chiefs at General Hospital, (EP Frank Valentini and head writer Ron Carlivati) to snatch him up and create a return for the fabulous Frisco Jones, especially now that many of the 80′s heyday favorites are returning to the series, including Finola Hughes, Tristan Rogers, Emma Samms and Rick Springfield.
We will keep you posted on this developing story! Whatever the case, we wish Jack all the best!
