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 colleague” of Thomas Forrester, and first appeared on Thursday, June 27.
Vinny is the dealer who gave Thomas a little something he used to help drug Liam into losing control and sleeping with Steffy. The guy showed up again to deliver a present to Thomas and Hope to make their wedding night something special, but the groom never got a chance to use it as Hope quickly learned the truth about Baby Beth and Thomas' role in the deception!
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!
How might Vinny factor into Thomas' future schemes? You'll have to stay tuned to find out, and for more B&B casting news, keep reading the CBS edition of Soaps In Depth magazine.
