There's only one Ridge Forrester for me and that's Ronn Moss. I think Ronn's bad acting is part of the charm of Ridge. Ridge better now become a Red Wings fan.
I agree. Ronn Moss is a trouper and has always mocked himself playing Ridge and that's fine because B&B... is what it is. And Ridge embodies that trashy soapiness and melodramatic line delivery ("You'rrrrrre NOT going to get away with it, RICK!"). I flat-out miss him and his crazy scarves sometimes.
Don't think this is a bad recast at all. He could be pretty good.
Thing is though I don't think RIDGE is needed... I much prefer STEFFY and TAYLOR back on the canvas than him...
IA that Steffy and Taylor need to come back ASAP. And Peter Porte as a Thomas recast. I thought JMW was returning "after the summer" for a couple of months?
I like TK (who is German, I thought, and not Irish? He just played an Irishman on OLTL) buthe knows he's a pretty good actor and gets grumpy about other actors not measuring up and when things don't go his way. Not sure how he's going to find B&B (especially if he interacts with the current Thomas or, God forbid, Marcus)! The B&B set tends to be pleasant in the sense that most of the cast have to check their egos at the door to a certain extent.
Don Diamont showed that he was a company man and ready to promote B&B whenever, wherever so I doubt that the arrival of TK means he is out. If anything, all this is to give life to a new Brill/Bridge triangle.
