Breaking news this morning, but happy news to report! Ricky Paull Goldin last seen as Jake Martin on All My Children, has decided to return to daytime!
According to an exclusive this morning from TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan, Goldin will begin taping a new character this week on The Bold and the Beautiful named Jesse who is, “the badass dude who fathered Maya’s child. ” According to a B&B rep, the baby daddy, “will arrive on the scene, see Maya with Rick and immediately get jealous.”
The casting of Goldin in the role of Jesse is non-contract at the moment, but said to have serious long-term potential! Goldin related his decision to TVG stating, ” I’ve pretty much put acting on hold but when the Bell family asks you to do a role, it’s not that easy to say no! I worked for them many years ago on The Young and the Restless and it was a wonderful experience. I’m so honored to be back with them.”
The chance to play a villain also apparently enticed the daytime fan favorite: “I’ve always been cast as the hero with a few flaws,” Ricky said. “Jesse is a really dark guy with a lot of potential layers and that’s very attractive to me. How long will he be around? That Fifth Harmony song from The X Factor keeps going through my head — ‘Anything Can Happen!’”
In addition, Ricky who turned down returning to Prospect Park’s All My Children launched his own production company and his first series, Spontaneous Construction will premiere on HGTV in April – with the concept that mixes, according to TVG, social networking, extreme home makeovers, and flash mobs!
So are you excited to see Ricky return to daytime in his new role on B&B? Let us know!
