CASTING NEWS: A Fresh Face Joins B&B

Actor Texas Battle — perhaps best known to audiences for his roles in Coach Carter (with Samuel L. Jackson), Final Destination 3 and One Tree Hill — has been snapped up by the folks at The Bold and the Beautiful. He is scheduled to start airing in May, playing the part of Marcus.

Executive producer and head writer Bradley Bell announced today: “Marcus arrives on the scene at a time when the Forresters and the Logans are embroiled in deeply emotional issues. It is soon revealed that Marcus is connected to the Logans, a secret that Donna has been keeping since she was a teenager.”

Keep an eye on Daytime Dial, as we'll be featuring an interview with the young actor in the coming month.
