Daytime Emmy Award nominee Thorsten Kaye joins CBS Daytime's THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL in the pivotal role of Ridge Forrester, beginning Friday, Dececember 13. Ridge left town in the fall of 2012, and will return to find many things very different from the way he left them.

"Thorsten's powerful screen presence and vast range as an actor has intrigued me for years," said THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL's Executive Producer and Head Writer Bradley Bell. "The timing was right, so I took the opportunity to cast him in the role of Ridge Forrester. I'm confident Thorsten will make this role unique on every level."

  1. Dec 13, 2013 can not come fast enough for me. Have missed seeing Thorsten Kaye on TV. He is definitely going to bring the TK magic to the character of Ridge. I will now have to add B&B to my Soap List of must watch Soaps. Thank You Bill Bell!!

  3. It will be a plus to have a better actor than Moss, but Kaye is simply too great a departure from Moss to be an effective recast. Why not Jeffrey Meek?

  6. I don't like this new Ridge he's not charismatic like the other Ridge. This guy looks old. Nothing about him looks appealing.

  8. For a brief while I thought he was a long lost son of Eric, but then realized that he`s a replacement of Ridge. The original is always better and I`ll miss him. Oh well ....

  9. Ronn Moss was a lousy actor but he was convincing as Ridge. The new Ridge has the demeanor a restauranteur. KKL and Ronn Moss shared an unusual on-screen chemistry which made their love story believable even at the most contrived parts of the storyline. There is no chemistry between TK and KKL. They're just good actors carrying out a script. It would be have better to cast TK as Eric's long lost son, a totally different character.
