'The Bold and the Beautiful' star Jacob Young to host his own talk show 'Daytime After Dark'
'The Bold and the Beautiful' star Jacob Young is broadening his horizons and will now host his own talk show called 'Daytime After Dark' starting October.
'The Bold and the Beautiful' star Jacob Young will be taking on a new role, but not on the popular soap. The 38-year-old actor is launching a new web venture that will keep him closer to his followers than ever before.
According to Soaphub, on the new talk show, Young will talk about everything related to the entertainment world, including music, film, and television. The talk show will be called 'Daytime After Dark' and will debut on YouTube this October, and there will be no paywall to access the content either.
The actor took to Twitter to announce his new venture as well, writing: "Hey, everyone excited to share my new venture, LIVE weekly! Exclusively on YouTube. SUBSCRIBE NOW FOR FREE!"
Jacob will also be using the talk show as a platform to interview the friends he's made in his two-odd decades in the industry. And, of course, there will be talk about soaps. He confirmed that there would most definitely be soap content on his channel. He will also address what it takes for aspiring talent to make it big in Hollywood as well.
While Jacob has appeared intermittently on 'The Bold and the Beautiful' as Rick Forrester, he earned a reputation as an up-and-coming force in the soap industry for his role in another soap opera, playing Lucky Spencer on ABC's 'General Hospital.' While he was the second to be cast in the character, he would go on to win the Daytime Emmy for 'Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series' for his performances.
But the 38-year-old is perhaps best-recognized for his role as JR Chandler on another ABC soap 'All My Children.' He played the character between 2003 and 2011, earning him nominations for a Daytime Emmy Award as Outstanding Younger Actor and Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series.
Jacob has also appeared on ABC's 'Hope & Faith,' guest-starred in the film 'The Girl Next Door,' and TV movie 'The Beach Boys: An American Family,' as well as Disney's 'Beauty and the Beast' on Broadway, in the role of Lumiere. He's also a recording artist with Artemis Records and released his self-titled CD in 2001.
He is currently filming for 'Faithfully' alongside Christha B Allen.
