Actor Joe LoCicero is joining the cast of THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL in the new recurring role of Vincent Walker, but he already has a connection to the soap — his wife is Gina Rodriguez, who appeared as Beverly on B&B from 2011-12! People is reporting that LoCicero will be playing a “nefarious colleage” of Thomas Forrester, and will be in episodes scheduled to air on Thursday, June 27, and Tuesday, July 2.
LoCicero has a variety of credits on his IMDb page including playing an MMA fighter on KINGDOM and a stripper on JANE THE VIRGIN, which is where he first met Rodriguez, who stars in the CW dramedy. After falling in love after that meeting in 2016, the couple tied the knot in early May of 2019.
B&B fans may remember Rodriguez’s stint on the soap as Dayzee’s friend, Beverly, who was hired as an intern at Forrester Creations. After being accused of stealing Forrester designs to give to Jackie M Deisgns, Beverly ran away and Stephanie and Dayzee tracked her down to a housing complex for children aged out of the foster care system. Beverly hasn’t been mentioned since 2012, but since she was never written out of the show, perhaps she’s still working at Forrester? Hopefully, she’s at least been promoted from intern by now!
With Thomas up to no good since his dramatic return to Los Angeles, it’s likely that Vincent will be helping him stir up even more trouble, so stay tuned to see how LoCicero’s character impacts the canvas, and for more B&B casting news, keep reading the CBS edition of Soaps In Depth magazine.
