Days' Ex Darin Brooks Joining The Bold and the Beautiful

By May 15, 2013

Follow me on:

darin brooksDays of Our Lives' ex-Darin Brooks is joining The Bold and the Beautiful. TV Guide is reporting that he'll play Wyatt Fuller, a mysterious new love interest for Kim Matula (Hope), and begin airing on June 21.

Brooks played Max Brady on Days from 2005 to 2009 and returned briefly in 2010 to escort Rachel Melvin's Chelsea off the canvas. He won a 2009 daytime Emmy award for his performance.

Since leaving Days, Brooks went on to star on Spike's raunchy sitcom Blue Mountain State. He last starred in the Hallmark Movie Channel film, The Seven Year Hitch.

It was only a few months ago that rumors surfaced that Brooks might be returning to Days. It all started in November 2012, when he cryptically tweeted, "To DAYS or not to DAYS...that is the question... ; )"

Unfortunately, it never came to pass, which is sad news for Days fans; particularly since there was a built in storyline waiting to be told. Remember, back when Ashley Benson played Abigail, her character had a huge crush on Max. It would have been great to see Brooks return and paired with Kate Mansi. The twosome might have had real supercouple potential.

Good for him and congrats on the new role on B&B, but I didn’t care if Max came back to Days or not. There are so many other characters I want back before Max.

Rex, Cassie, Mimi, Philip, Belle, Shawn and of course Jack.

Of course I know Jack will never be back with the current head writers since they hated Jack and thats why they killed off Jack..

Smart move on his part. Days has been destroying characters left and right, nonstop, and enjoying it! I wish him success in B&B, and may start to watch.

Good Luck on your new venture. Too bad DOOL missed this opportunity. It would have been nice to have a new storyline. Instead, we are stuck with another try at demolishing the Jennifer & Daniel relationship. They should have left JJ wherever he was . This storyline is soooooooooooooo BORING !

I agree with the others…good for him. He sure is a cutie pie.
And, yes.. Days is boring.
Jennifer, Daniel, Kate, Marlena…..on and on …. boring!
Funny, the person whom I like the best to watch act…is Will.
And, I could almost be his Grandma He is such a cute kid.
I, also , have been a Days watcher for over 35 yrs., and agree…with other posters.
They grab up these actors from long ago…Jack, Vivien, Billie…etc and then give them absolutely no story to do. No lines to say.
Geez, they have had Adrienne and Justin fliting in and out of Victor’s and the coffee house for how long now??? And.. what is their storyline?
And, Maggie and Victor and Caroline theirs?
They choose a few people and that’s all we see.
And, give me a break….how long are we going to watch Hope do nothing but, jump up from a desk and sit and have coffee while pining over being a terrible parent?
Yes….Days is boring !!!
