Constantine Maroulis and Nigel Barker make soap debuts


Mackenzie Mauzy (Phoebe) and Constantine Maroulis (Constantine) Bold and the Beautiful Constantine Maroulis will join the cast of The Bold and the Beautiful beginning Tuesday, May 15 on the CBS Television Network.  Maroulis will play music producer Constantine Parros, who becomes embroiled in the career and life of heiress Phoebe Forrester (Mackenzie Mauzy).  He will perform a number of songs from his upcoming solo debut album over the next several months on the show.

A graduate of the Boston Conservatory, Maroulis was a top-10 finalist during American Idol’s 2005 season.  His success brought him national attention and led to several high-profile projects, including participating at Brian May’s request on the Killer Queen tribute album, touring in Canada and Asia and as a solo artist, appearing in the Broadway production of "The Wedding Singer," appearing off-Broadway in the critically acclaimed "Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living In Paris," and, most recently, as Yahoo!’s Idol Buzz weekly webcast co-host.  His highly-anticipated solo debut is slated for summer 2007. 

In more CBS Daytime Casting news, reality tv takes once more to daytime as Nigel Barker from America’s Next Top Model appears as himself as the host and judge of “Extreme Catwalk,” on two episodes of “The Young and the Restless.”  The episodes will air on Tuesday, May 29 and Wednesday, May 30.

As host of “Extreme Catwalk,” “Y&R’s” reality show within-the-show, Nigel will keep the sparing and dueling divas Jill Abbott (Jess Walton) and Gloria Abbott (Judith Chapman) at bay, while sly manipulator, the ever sexy Amber Moore (Adrienne Frantz), models her daring new fashion designs on the runway.
