The Bold and the Beautiful: Ronn Moss' Decision To Quit Show Has Backfired And Left Him Jobless

I can never understand when soap actors decide to threaten their networks by quitting the show – don’t they realize that for the most part they’re a dime a dozen and WILL be replaced without hesitation? Ronn Moss quit the The Bold and the Beautiful a while ago in an effort to increase his salary, but the plan has backfired on him after CBS hired another actor to replace him, and he’s left jobless and desperate for another gig.

Moss has played Ridge Forrester on the soap for almost 25 years, but it was a combination of demanding a higher salary and looking to capitalize on other career opportunities that led to him quitting. But alas, the network took no time in replacing him with Thorsten Kaye, who’s become a huge hit with fans.

A source explains, “Ronn held his ground over money and he figured if he was gone, fans would be clamoring for his return so producers would beg him to come back at the salary he wanted. He was really upset when they cast Thorsten in the role of Ridge. Now, Thorsten is a hit and Ronn seems left out in the cold.”

Although a few fans are still clinging to the idea of Ronn returning to his iconic role, I wouldn’t count on it happening. Most fans and co-stars of Thorsten are already raving about him, and it seems like Ronn’s already been forgotten – both on the show and in the industry. Apparently, he’s having trouble finding another job, why is another reason actors shouldn’t quit their bread-and-butter [especially after 25 years] without having something else lined up.

What do you guys think about Ronn’s departure from the show? Do you feel like Thorsten Kaye is a better Ridge Forrester? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

    i AM HAPPY TO SEE THE NEW RIDGE WITH KATIE BECAUSE THE ORIGINAL RIDGE IS WONDERFUL AND BELONGS WITH BROOKE. I DON’T EVEN MIND IF BROOKE WITH BILL BUT DEFINITELY NOT WITH THE NEW RIDGE. HE IS A INDECISIVE LITTLE WHIMP AND BELONGS WITH KATIE. BROOKE SHOULD FORGET ABOUT HIM AND MOVE ON. UNLESS RONN MOSS COMES BACK!!!!! THEN THERE MUST NOT BE A KATIE IN HIS LIFE.
    PLEASE BRING BACK RONN MOSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    No, when I saw Brooke trying to pursue the new Ridge, it didn’t feel the same, seeing Ronn, when she was calling Ridge “my beautiful husband”, felt weird, also when she was touching his face.

    BRING BACK RONN MOSS THE ORIGINAL RIDGE!!!! This new guy has no chemistry with Brooke. He looks a hot mess in the since that he doesn’t represent the historical look of the character!!! Can you imagine this dude in Ridges’ famous black bikinis….. I rather have Ronn back, bad acting and all after 25 years of watching him I’m use to it. If nothing else choose actors that are better suited to the characters historical image if you need suggestions: The actor that formerly played as “Simon” on As the World Turns, or the actor that formerly played as “Price Richard/”Jeffery O’Neil on The Guiding Light. Heck anyone would be better that this guy… he would be great to play Mossimo’s long lost older son… but not “Ridge”

    I think no one can replace the real. RIDGE FORRESTER. Just like Susan and the rest of the bold and beautiful. He dedicated his 25yrs and you guys couldn’t give him a raise its wrong. He was a big part and ALOT OF PEOPLE MISS HIM. Not the same show. You guys need to appreciate more of your actors and actresses
