Antonio Sabato Jr.

Antonio Sabáto Jr. joins the cast of The Bold and the Beautiful in the role of Dante Damiano, a sultry and handsome artist who has mysterious ties to the beautiful, and until recently presumed dead, Dr. Taylor Forrester (played by Hunter Tylo).

Antonio has proven to be one of the hottest commodities in daytime television, nabbing a series of prime-time roles and modeling in the most successful Calvin Klein underwear campaign in the company's history.

Growing up in Rome, Antonio's first language is Italian and he didn't learn to speak English until he moved to Beverly Hills in 1984 with his mother and sister. His big break came when he was cast in the infamous Janet Jackson video Love Will Never Do Without You shot by Herb Ritts.

When Antonio joined the cast of ABC's General Hospital in the spring of 1992, the show jumped from seventh to third in the daytime Nielsen Ratings. That same year Antonio landed a coveted spot in People Magazine's 50 Most Beautiful People issue.

Fashion designer, Calvin Klein hired the actor in the summer of 1996 to be the company's first celebrity model since Mark Wahlberg four years earlier. During his tenure with Calvin Klein, Antonio appeared in a campaign photographed by Herb Ritts and on a 90-foot billboard in the middle of Times Square.

One of Antonio's most memorable roles was that of Heather Locklear's abusive ex-husband in a six episode stint on Melrose Place. In 1998, Antonio appeared opposite Mark Wahlberg, Lou Diamond Phillips in The Big Hit.

Antonio has made guest appearances on such notable shows as FOX's Ally McBeal and the WB's Charmed. He was most recently seen starring in WB's comedy The Help opposite Tori Spelling.

In addition to acting, Antonio is also an accomplished author; No Excuses: Workout for Life was published in 1999 and quickly became a best-selling exercise book.

Antonio currently resides in Los Angeles. He is a fitness and auto racing enthusiast. He enjoys spending time with his son Jack and daughter Mena.
