Wayne Brady Claps Back at Fan Who Questions Why He's on a Soap: 'Having 3 Jobs Is Better Than 1'
Wayne Brady is proud to be a working actor.
After a Twitter user noticed the Whose Line Is It Anyway star appearing on The Bold and the Beautiful, and questioned why he would choose to act on a soap, the 46-year-old was quick to clap back.
“Why tf is @WayneBrady on a daytime soap opera. Someone needs to make a Who’s Line Is It Anyway reboot STAT,” the social media user tweeted on Tuesday.
Brady fired back and defended his decision to appear as Dr. Reese Buckingham on the long-running CBS drama — in four epic responses.
“Well, because a) I’m an actor b) I want to and I’m grown,” he began.
He also informed the Twitter critic that the comedic game show Whose Line Is It Anyway has been airing since it was rebooted in 2013.
“c) @cwwhoseline has been on the air for 6 seasons, so your reboot wish is granted. Watch it,” he wrote.
“And d)having 3 jobs is better than one,” he concluded, “So thank you for your concern and have a wonderful day.”
Not only is Brady thankful to be doing what he loves as an actor, but he’s also proud to be sharing the small screen with one of the most beloved people in his life.
Last fall, “proud papa” Brady and his 15-year-old daughter, Maile Brady, appeared opposite each other on The Bold and the Beautiful.
The father-daughter scene was especially meaningful for Wayne because the Let’s Make a Deal host often watched B&B with his grandmother.
The Brady matriarch, who is now 87, got to watch her grandson and great-granddaughter on the soap opera when their scene aired on Dec. 13.
“It was appointment viewing for myself and my grandmother,” Wayne told CBS in October. “Cut to Maile getting to play a role on the show that I loved, and that so many great actors have come out of? It’s just thrilling. I’m really beside myself.”
And their B&B scene may just be the beginning of more professional partnerships to come.
“I think the dream would be for us to be on Broadway together,” the father of one told Entertainment Tonight in October while visiting the B&B set to watch Maile film her debut.
The Bold and The Beautiful airs weekdays (1:30 p.m. ET) on CBS.
