Clarke "C.J." Garrison Jr. is a fictional character in the American soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful, portrayed by Mick Cain from December 1997 to January 2001, July 2002 to August 2003, returning briefly in 2004, 2007 and 2010.


Clarke Jr. was born to Sally Spectra (played by Darlene Conley) and Clarke Garrison (Daniel McVicar). Not long after C.J.'s birth, Clarke left town. C.J. grew into a disobedient child in his early teens, having a cynical view on the world and starting a food fight with Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Eric Forrester's (John McCook) son, Rick, who was close to C.J.'s age. His father returned in 1996 and C.J. was initially resentful of Clarke until Clarke rescued him from kidnappers.

Becky learned of her cancer minutes before the wedding, but married CJ anyway. She died soon after, at peace, surrounded by her family and friends. Becky wanted C.J. to raise her son, Eric Jr., with Amber. C.J. and Amber shared an apartment. Around this time, C.J.'s sister Macy (Bobbie Eakes) died in a car explosion; he blamed Thorne for her death. Macy left her brother her coffee house, Insomnia.

Shortly after Macy's death, Amber had a party at their apartment and she and C.J. were mistakenly arrested for drug possession.

C.J. came back to town in Spring 2002, with a huge chip on his shoulder for everyone, especially the Forresters. He also began running the coffee shop, Insomnia, again. He was very mean to Bridget Forrester (then played by Jennifer Finnigan), his old friend, when she came into Insomnia looking for a job. Bridget eventually wore C.J. down until he became nice to her and he eventually offered her a place to stay, in the apartment right next to his.

Bridget and C.J. began dating, but not seriously. CJ was very supportive when Bridget started pre-med training. It was there she met Dr. Mark MacClaine (Michael Dietz), her med school mentor. C.J. immediately became jealous of Mark, sensing that Mark had intentions regarding Bridget. After a few months, Mark resigned as Bridget's mentor and began to date her. C.J. was furious to learn from Clarke that Mark was his long-lost half brother.

C.J.'s last appearance to date was December 2010, revealing that he now resides in San Francisco. C.J. had returned to close down his Insomnia café as the distance from San Francisco to Los Angeles was proving difficult. He stated his mother was sailing around the Caribbean Islands with a number of body builders and there was no longer reason for him to visit Los Angeles. Stephanie Forrester purchased Insomnia from C.J. and asked friend Dayzee Leigh if she'd like to run the café and offer employment to the homeless.
