Vincent Irizarry Previews His New Role on THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL (EXCLUSIVE)

Tags:

As the fallout surrounding the baby-switch storyline continues, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL has tapped veteran daytime actor Vincent Irizarry to lend a bit more intrigue in the recurring role of Dr. Jordan Armstrong. He will first air on Monday, August 26, and for the sake of the Forrester and Logan families, let’s hope his character is more ethical than Reese, the physician who originally set this storyline in motion! Then again, considering the last doctor Irizarry played (ALL MY CHILDREN’s David Hayward) was pretty treacherous, it’s anyone’s guess what we should expect from his new role! “I’m open to whatever they throw my way. We’ll leave it at that,” teased Irizarry, who also played SANTA BARBARA doctor Scott Clark.

Though the Emmy winner is a well-established face in daytime, he starts every new character he plays with a blank slate. “Even though I’ve played a doctor before, it’s not like Jordan is going to be exactly like David, because the backstory always informs who the character is,” he said. “I never worry about having to bring something different [to my portrayal] — it all stems from who the guy is and where he comes from.”

Meanwhile, Irizarry is thrilled to be back working with former AMC colleague Thorsten Kaye (Ridge) and regularly bumping into old castmates from THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS, as the soaps tape across the hall from each other. “It’s like one huge repertory company with all of these shows at this point,” he mused. “I’ve been in this medium for nearly 40 years, so I’ve worked with so many people, not only the actors on the show but also people on the crew and production throughout all these years. It’s great!”

Stay tuned to see how Jordan impacts the canvas, and for more B&B news, keep reading the CBS edition of Soaps In Depth magazine.
