Chaz Bono to guest on “The Bold and the Beautiful”

Love this!

Chaz Bono has landed his most high-profile acting gig yet.

The transgender performer will play a minister on two episodes of the CBS daytime soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful.

Bono, 46, will appear on episodes airing on March 31 and April 1.

‘I’m very excited to have been cast in a role on The Bold and the Beautiful,’ Bono tells PEOPLE.com. ‘I’m grateful that they are willing to pay me to do something I love, which is to act.’

Bono, of course, has acting in his genes.

His mother, Cher, won the Academy Award for best actress for the film Moonstruck. His father, the late Sonny Bono, appeared each week in comedy sketches with Cher on their classic 1970s TV variety series.

It’s not known if Bono’s minister character is transgender but the soap does have a transgender storyline. It was revealed last spring that the character of fashion model Maya, played by non-trans woman Karla Mosley, is transgender.

Ava’s mentor, Nick, is played by transgender actor Scott Turner Schofield.
