The leading men of CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" Lawrence Saint-Victor, Scott Clifton, Tanner Novlan, Matthew Atkinson and Joshua Hoffman dish on their respective characters. Hoffman opens up about joining the cast as Ridge Forrester, Jr. "I didn't know much. I had to do a lot of research. I talked a lot with Thorston [Kaye]...I just kind of studied his mannerisms. I'm like, okay, that's my Dad, this is how he walks." On joining the family business, he jokes, "I cannot confirm nor deny. No, I am." Then, Atkinson spills on Thomas' love for Hope [Annika Noelle], "This character Thomas has been kind of crazy in love with this girl for a long time, and he's actually committed to her. He's like steadfast in love, going to be there for you no matter what, and I think finally Hope is coming around." Novlan shares his take on Liam going after Steffy. "Listen, this character's been flawed, he's been misguided...He's a villain now, and I'm having the time of my life." Saint-Victor reveals how Carter's fashion showdown will turn out. "It's weird to be in the middle between your friend and his father, but I think Carter is on the side of money."
