Talking with Daytime Confidential Jason shared details of the character he’d be playing on his B&B appearance plus what it was like making the shift from Big Brother to another one of CBS’s shows. Read on for what Jason had to say.

Roy has gone from snagging one of the top 3 spots for BB17’s most popular Houseguests, as revealed by Julie Chen at the season finale, to taking on a new challenge: pizza delivery guy. Yep, he’ll soon be knocking on the door of B&B’s Ivy and Wyatt in his soap opera debut later this month.

Jason revealed more details to DC about his role and discussed what it’s been like making the jump from grocery store to television.

Daytime Confidential: Do you ever have moments where you think: “Before this I was sacking groceries” and have to pinch yourself?

Jason Roy: Yes! All the time! Especially at the finale of BB and while taping B&B. I’m still waiting to wake up!

DC: Now that you’ve flexed you acting muscles on Bold, what’s next for Jason Roy?

JR: I still do not know. I’m just going to roll with the punches and see what happens. Hopefully I won’t be bagging groceries anymore.

Congratulations to Jason, whose episode of Bold & Beautiful will air on Monday, October 12, 2015 so check your local listings and set your DVRs to catch his appearance.

No word yet on any other former HGs hitting the Bold set, but we’ve seen wide cast appearances before so don’t be too surprised if there’s more to come. Maybe Austin’s on-air pleads for an appearance will be granted after all, especially now that Liz has snipped that ponytail beard thingy.

  1. Good for him! I would much rather see Jason than Austin on a soap. Actually, I do not want to see Austin ever again.

  2. If they ever make a movie about PeeWee Herman I think Jason could have a lock on that role. His voice enthusiasm and many of his expressions are very reminiscent of that character.

      • I don’t believe that PeeWee was ever accused of being a pedophile. He was publicly humiliated because he was discovered having sex in an adult theater.
        Sadly it put a damper on the great legacy of his children’s show “PeeWee’s Playhouse”, much as a joke made in poor taste by Soupy Sales on his children’s show brought it to an end and damaged his career many years earlier.

      • PeeWee Herman never did anything wrong. Paul Reubens was arrested for masturbating in an adult film theater. He was charge with indecent exposure.

      • Okay spelling troll. Thank you. I knew I was misspelling. I generally spell very well but was too lazy to think of what I was typing because it’s not something I think about on a regular basis.

      • You can’t use the word “nor” either there’s a “neither” somewhere before it. Just sayin…

    • That would be perfect for him – PeeWee’s little brother. He could also play any role which requires someone to be bubbly and over-the-top.

  3. Jason is a character I’ll never forget … May his stint on The B& The B be the beginning of more amazing job offers.
