It's time to meet the parents.

EW can exclusively reveal that Ted King and Naomi Matsuda have been tapped to play the parents of Dr. John "Finn" Finnegan (Tanner Novlan) on The Bold and Beautiful. King plays Jack and Matsuda is Li.

Jack and Li are coming to town to meet their soon-to-be-born grandchild - the son of Tanner and fan favorite Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood). Viewers will soon learn about Finn's very dramatic backstory.

King, a General Hospital vet, and Matsuda (Tori from Days of Our Lives) began taping June 9. King will appear as Jack first, on July 30, and Matsuda will debut as Li on Aug. 2.

Finn's role was created before the COVID-19 pandemic shut down all production last March. Since B&B was the very first scripted series to resume work, Novlan was among the first back on set in June. He's now been on the CBS series for a year as the love interest to the character played by Wood, who just earned her fifth Daytime Emmy nomination. She's already won once.

And if you don't watch B&B but think Novlan looks awfully familiar, it's probably because you've seen him as the bad actor in those knee-slapping Liberty Mutual Insurance commercials.

The Bold and the Beautiful airs weekdays on CBS.
