HOLLYWOOD—This week’s Leading Men Gold Standard goes to Adam Gregory, who portrays Thomas Forrester on CBS’s “The Bold and the Beautiful,” and Don Diamont, who portrays billionaire Bill Spencer on the same soap. Both men appeared in many scenes over the week, but each scene was played differently; each time they interacted with a different character, they knew just what to do to make us want to see more. Gregory played a man falling in love and Diamont played a man at the breaking point.

Adam Gregory As Thomas

Adam Gregory is one of the most handsome young men in Hollywood. Brad Bell’s decision to recast the role of Thomas Forrester was not without controversy. The previous young man Drew Tyler Bell did such an amazing job in the role that he picked up an Emmy Award® last year for his work on the hit soap. However, as always, casting guru Christy Dooley made sure the actor who replaced him was picture perfect in the role as well. Gregory came on the show in the middle of a heavy storyline for Thomas, and he never looked back.

This week Thomas found himself falling in love with Dayzee, a once homeless African American woman to whom his grandmother, Stephanie, has given a business to help Dayzee get off of skid row. Thomas has been falling in lust with his sexy stepmother, and now it seems he’s turned his eyes on to a new woman in L.A. However, in the back of his mind lies the dream of the sexiest woman in the world, Brooke Logan. Fans want to know if Thomas is using Dayzee to get over Brooke or if his feelings are sincere for the young lady. Perhaps we’ll find out sooner than we know?

Don Diamont As Bill

Don Diamont as “Dollar” Bill Spencer is on a roll. The handsome leading man is playing a man on the verge of doing something sinister to the woman (Amber Moore) who he blames for his son’s tragic accident, which has left his son Liam in a coma. Diamont’s ability to play ruthless and protective is awesome to watch. Then in the next scene he’s warming up to either his wife Katie or his obsession Steffy. When Bill bought Nick Marone’s cliff-side mansion this week, he was filled with thoughts of Amber falling off the terrace of the mansion to her death on the private beach below.

Fans are excited to see what Bill will do next, and even more excited to see Don Diamont’s gravity defying performance, which is spectacular and entertaining to watch.

“B&B” airs weekdays on CBS.
