Justin Baldoni (Graham, Bold and the Beautiful)Things are really about to heat up in the fashion world of the Bold and the Beautiful. On Friday, December 18th, the soap announced that not one, but two hot, young stars would be joining the ranks. First up, Justin Baldoni has been cast in the role of "Graham Darros". "Justin is a compelling young actor who will be able to bring forth the intensity that is essential for the character of ‘Graham'," said B&B Executive Producer and Head Writer, Bradley Bell. "'Graham' is a well-known fashion photographer who is hired by ‘Steffy' to work for Forrester Creations. It soon becomes evident that he has a sinister and mysterious past with another major character."

Perhaps best known for his role as "Reid Bardem" on the WB's hit series Everwood, Baldoni's other credits include Heroes, where he played "Alex Woolsley", The Suite Life of Zack and Cody and CSI: Miami as well as in the feature film Knuckle Draggers. He can next be seen in the film Unrequited, which is scheduled for release in 2010 and has just been tapped in the title role, opposite James Caan and Ving Rhames, in "Minkow" The Barry Minkow Story, as well as in the film "Not Today."

Baldoni has established himself as one of Hollywood's up and coming music directors, having directed campaigns for Universal Records, and artists including Bobby Valentino and Snoop Dogg, through his production company AFG Productions. Baldoni is currently directing a six-piece music video/web series for Warner Bros. Records' artist, Jason Derulo, which is slated for release in January 2010.

Baldoni began taping The Bold and the Beautiful on December 8, 2009. His first airdate is slated for January 15, 2010.

Zach Conroy (Oliver, Bold and the Beautiful)Next up is former Guiding Light and As the World Turns hottie, Zack Conroy, who has been cast in the role of "Oliver Jones". "Zack is a dynamic young actor," said Bell. "I'm excited to expand the Jones family off the talent of Rick Hearst (Whip) and Sarah Brown (Sandy). I look forward to seeing Zack bring this artistic and enthusiastic character to life."

Conroy's other credits include the role of "James Spaulding" on Guiding Light, "Leo Morrisey" on As The World Turns and "Ben Simmons" on Gossip Girl. Conroy has also appeared in commercials for Pizza Hut, New Balance and Lorafina, was a model for Kenneth Cole, and posed as "Joe Hardy" for The Hardy Boys book covers.

Conroy graduated Magna Cum Laude from Boston College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in General Management. He is relocating to Los Angeles from New York City for his role on The Bold and the Beautiful. He began taping December 10, 2009. His first airdate is slated for January 20, 2010.
