Liam is gonna crap. Former Days of Our Lives star Darin Brooks has joined the cast of CBS's The Bold and the Beautiful as Wyatt Fuller, a character described by a show rep as "clever and mysterious and a love interest for Hope Logan [Kim Matula]." Brooks, who won a 2009 Emmy as Days' Max and went on to star in three seasons of Spike's riotously raunchy sitcom Blue Mountain State, has already started shooting at B&B. He'll hit the air June 21. TV Guide Magazine spoke with the star about his juicy — and naked — new gig.
TV Guide Magazine: Word is, your first B&B scene is in the shower.
Brooks: Yeah, that's how they introduce me. [Laughs] Hey, I know the drill. You get used to this as an actor. Drop trou and go, you know? The scene takes place up at Big Bear Lake near the Forrester cabin. My character, Wyatt, is first seen in the nude taking a solar shower out in the woods. Hope stumbles across him and takes his picture on her smartphone and Wyatt catches her. She doesn't know what to do so she freaks out and starts running. He chases after her to get his hands on the photo.
TV Guide Magazine: And it's love at first sight?
Brooks: Wyatt doesn't know anything about Hope but he's definitely taken with her. Yeah, a little smitten. [Laughs] Hey, it happens when a woman catches you in your most private of moments.
TV Guide Magazine: How will this mountain man get mixed up with the show's Beverly Hills crowd?
Brooks: He'll eventually get himself into town and get settled. As the story unfolds, he moves into that whole fashion-industry world and you'll find out his connection to everything. It's all very mysterious for now. You know how this stuff works. You have to watch!
TV Guide Magazine: So the Liam-Hope-Steffy triangle is about to turn quadrangle?
Brooks: Wyatt will definitely get in the middle of all that and he's the type of guy who will stand up for himself. Wyatt has no problems encroaching on Liam's territory and stirring up the s--t. He's a badass. [Laughs] He will definitely enjoy the drama!
