(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — A Texas Battle hits Los Angeles and the face-off could have long-lasting results for CBS’ “The Bold and the Beautiful.”
Houston, Texas born actor Texas Battle, 31, has been tapped to join the drama series in the contract role of Marcus, son of Donna Logan played by Jennifer Gareis, 37, confirms Executive Producer and Head Writer, Bradley P. Bell via press release.
“Marcus books a flight to Los Angeles after seeing the wedding announcement of Eric and Donna in the local paper,” Bell explains. “He arrives on the scene at a time when the Forresters and the Logans are embroiled in deeply emotional issues. It is soon revealed that Marcus is connected to the Logans, a secret that Donna has been keeping since she was a teenager.”
“When Donna was 16, she had a baby and gave it up for adoption,” Bell informed TV Guide. “The identity of the dad, who is black, is going to remain a mystery for a while.”
After marrying Eric Forrester on the Friday, May 9 episode of “B&B,” Donna begins to enjoy life as a Forrester wife, but her life of luxury could be cut short as Marcus appears on her doorstep on May 13.
Battle’s previous credits include roles in the films “Final Destination 3,” “Coach Carter” and “Wrong Turn 2.” He also appeared in episodes of “One Tree Hill” and the now defunct “All of Us.” He can next be seen in the films “Hitting the Bricks” (2008) and as Carey Fuller in “Dragonball” (2009), the big screen adaptation of the popular “Dragonball” series.
Battle graduated from the University of Texas, majoring in Kinesiology.
