Mykel Shannon Jenkins ImageMykel Shannon Jenkins has joined the cast of The Bold and the Beautiful in a contract role. He'll be portraying Charlie Baker, the son of Lt. Baker (Dan Martin).

Charlie has recently made detective rank within the police department and is introduced on canvas in the aftermath of Eric’s (John McCook) resurgence as owner of Forrester Creations and will be an integral part of  The Bold and the Beautiful’s hottest and most suspenseful story-arc of the year, according to the show's website.

Jenkins actually won the first season of I Wanna be a Soap Star, giving him something in common with this year's victor, Ashlee Holland.

Jenkins receives his big break as the host of New Orleans’ WB38 Kids’ Club, where he served as an on-air personality for more than four years, introducing kids and their parents to a world of knowledge.

The actor's first tape date was Tuesday, with  his first appearance on The Bold and the Beautiful scheduled for November 21.
