You'll Never Guess What Show Bold And The Beautiful Alum Rome Flynn Is Joining

Even though Rome Flynn hasn't played Zende since the adopted son of Kristen Forrester left Forrester Creations with his wife Nicole in 2017, the former "The Bold and the Beautiful" actor has put his Daytime Emmy to good use, appearing in plenty of other high-profile projects. Not only did he join the cast of Tyler Perry's "The Haves and the Have Nots" for three seasons, but he was also a series regular on the hit Shonda Rhimes and ABC show "How to Get Away with Murder" for its final two seasons (per IMDb). When he's not acting, Flynn is also a musician who was recently featured on the Elijah Blake song "Angles" (per BET Soul's Twitter account).

Although he's had more recent roles in Netflix shows, including David on "Dear White People" and Tevin Wakefield on the superhero show "Raising Dion," the 31-year-old actor has recently landed a recurring role on another hit series — and it's one soap opera fans might already be watching.

He joined Grey's Anatomy during its 18th season

In March, Flynn joined the long-running primetime drama "Grey's Anatomy" in a recurring role, tweeting that the opportunity was "a dream come true." According to Variety, Flynn plays Wendell Ndugu, who first appeared by trying to impress his older brother, doctor Winston Ndugu (played by Anthony Hill), with his new job as a salesman for a medical company. In a three-episode arc, it was revealed Wendell — who had a history of causing problems for his family — was in serious debt to a loan shark and tried to take advantage of his brother by selling the hospital staff devices that didn't work. Although he last appeared on bad terms with his brother, Flynn's recurring cast member status could mean viewers haven't seen the last of Winston's mischievous sibling. 

As for Flynn, he also recently retweeted an announcement that he was cast in the upcoming Paramount+ feature film "Fantasy Football," which Shadow and Act reports will follow a 16-year-old girl who learns she can control her professional football player dad's performance through a video game console. For those hoping the actor might make his way back to "The Bold and the Beautiful," you never know. Zende was recast in 2020 with actor Delon de Metz, who has recently sparked rumors he might leave the role after being cast in a TV pilot for NBC, according to Only time will tell.
