The Bold and the Beautiful's Pierson Fodé (Thomas Forrester) is set to topline Fritz Mitchell's heartbreaking new sports film, It's Time.

It hasn't even been a full year since rumors started that The Bold and the Beautiful's Pierson Fodé (Thomas Forrester) was leaving daytime for prime time, and the rumor mill is at it again. But this time, a new film gig is making fans wonder if the actor will soon be leaving the Forrester circle.

News just broke that Fodé has booked a lead role in the Fritz Mitchell sports film It's Time, which is based on the true story of NCAA players Roy Lee "Chucky" Mullins and Brad Gaines' friendship after a tragic accident during a Vanderbilt versus Ole Miss football game in 1989.

"Mullins was paralyzed when making a hit on Gaines, a running back from Vanderberbilt. Both men lost something that day; Mullins lost the ability to move and Gaines, a man of faith, suffered a loss to his spirit," states Deadline of the film. "The two eventually became friends, and ultimately brothers."

"Proud to be apart of such an incredible and heart breaking TRUE story," Fodé wrote on Instagram of joining the production. "My life has already changed in so many ways since picking up this script. spending time with #BradGaines, understanding how tragedy rocked both his Chucky's (portrayed by the great @sedale3t) lives. Most importantly how a deep friendship and love was created and never lost. To see the story Check Fritz's @espn 30/30 documentary "it's time" on @netflix"
