Quote kn1231: I just looked this guy up, and although he's 49 in real life, I still think he looks a bit young to play Ridge. I also don't see him pairing well with Brooke at all, and there is always a connection somehow with those two. With all that being said, I think he would look great with Katie, but aren't there rumors that Heather Tom is potentially leaving. If this is the case, I can't see them bring someone in for Katie only to have Heather Tom leave. Unless they are planning a recast.
I think ridge and brooke are finally done so it won't matter about him looking too young. If brooke takes katies man then katie can take brookes.
I know heather tom did a tv series but didn't think she was leaving.
