Pierson Fodé (ex-Thomas Forrester, The Bold and the Beautiful) is ecstatic to be able to announce that his life has changed forever: he was just cast in Man from Toronto, a major motion picture featuring some of Hollywood's hottest stars.
Fodé will be joining Kevin Hart, Woody Harrelson, and Kaley Cuoco in the mistaken-identity film that follows the world's deadliest assassin, known as "the Man from Toronto" and a man named Teddy, who is described as "New York's biggest screw-up." The two run into each other in a rented Airbnb and are forced to team up and save the day.
"MY LIFE JUST CHANGED FOREVER," Fodé enthuses on Twitter. "Been dying to share this news. Worked my ass off for a moment like this and it's only going to get more intense. @KevinHart4real let's make a tiktok - HELL F*#KING YES! I'm honored to share the same space as these legends."

Directed by Patrick Hughes and written by Robbie Fox and Chris Bremner, Man from Toronto is set to be released on September 17, 2021. As movie buffs may recall, the project originally starred Jason Statham, who stepped away and was replaced by Woody Harrelson.
Pierson Fodé joined the soap opera world in 2015 when he was chosen as a recast for B&B's Thomas Forrester. He played Ridge and Taylor's son until 2017 and returned again for a short arc in 2018. Since leaving B&B, the actor has appeared in series like Hit the Floor, Supergirl, and The Real Bros of Simi Valley. He also played the recurring role of creepy self-help speaker Joel Turner on the reboot of Dynasty in 2019.
