TV Legend Bob Barker Returns to CBS Daytime's 'The Bold and the Beautiful'
Multiple Emmy Award-winning television legend and animal rights activist Bob Barker will return to CBS Daytime's The Bold and the Beautiful in a guest starring role Thursday, August 28 (1:30-2:00 PM, ET;12:30-1:00 PM, PT), on the CBS Television Network. This will mark Barker's third appearance on the show. His first was in March 2002.
In his role, Barker returns to Spencer Publications to check on his pal Liam Cooper (Scott Clifton), but the friendly visit goes south when an argument between Barker and Wyatt Spencer (Darin Brooks) turns into a heated brawl. Infuriated by Wyatt's onslaught of insults toward animal lovers, Barker unleashes a flurry of punches, sending Wyatt rolling down a hill, where he lands face-down in a puddle of mud. The fight scene will once again proclaim Barker's ageless vigor, which was featured in the classic film "Happy Gilmore" in 1996.
"The 'Happy Gilmore' fight scene was filmed almost 20 years ago and is still a favorite with audiences to this day. It was fun to revisit for THE BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL and to know that I can still throw a punch. It's proof that those karate lessons with Chuck Norris are still paying off," said Barker.
Barker, who hosted THE PRICE IS RIGHT, television's longest running daytime game show from 1972 to 2007, is well known for his activism in support of animal rights, a cause he promotes during his appearance on THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL.
"At 90, Bob's still got it in 'spayeds' - and neuters! I am so happy to have such a fine man and television legend on THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL. And doing his own stunts, no less!" said Executive Producer and Head Writer Bradley Bell.
THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL, which celebrated its 27th anniversary on March 23, 2014, recently claimed four Daytime Emmy® Awards, more than any other daytime drama. The Bold and the Beautiful is a Bell-Phillip Television production, broadcast weekdays (1:30 PM-2:00 PM, ET; 12:30-1:00 PM, PT) on the CBS Television Network.
