The cast of ‘The Brady Bunch‘ continues to infiltrate CBS Daytime.

First the erstwhile Cindy Brady, Susan Olsen, was cast in a cameo as a daycare owner on ‘The Young & The Restless.’  Now the man once known as Peter Brady, Christopher Knight, will guest star on ‘The Bold & The Beautiful’ as a pediatrician on an episode airing September 15.

Though Knight has not done much acting in recent years, he has stayed in the public eye by starring in a VH1 reality series, ‘My Fair Brady,’ chronicling his romance with former ‘America’s Next Top Model‘ contestant Adrienne Curry.

The stuntcasting bit parts trend does not bother me, other than that it deprives another actor who probably needs the money more of an opportunity.  The show gets publicity.  The part is usually so insignificant that it does not impact the viewing experience.

However, I think that the Bradys are appearing on the wrong soaps. They should get their agents to book them on ‘Days of Our Lives.’  With such a large number of characters on that show whose last name is Brady, it would actually be a good inside joke.
