EXCLUSIVE: Grace Is Coming Back Again!

Jennifer Gareis (Donna, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL) is once more returning to Genoa City as Grace Turner! The actress, who reprised her role as Nick's naughty ex-lover in August, will pop back up on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS on Thursday, November 13. The buzz is that Gareis' summer appearance on Y&R was so successful that the show extended another invitation to the actress, who currently recurs on sister soap B&B. "I love playing bad girls," Gareis has told In Depth. "It's just so much fun because you never know what they're going to do next! They're always conniving and manipulative." No word on how long Gareis will be on the scene this time, but don't be surprised if she continues to reprise Grace on occasion!

Rowell Finds Deadly Romance

Victoria_Rowell02318.jpg

THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS' Victoria Rowell (ex-Drucilla) had a frightfully good time making her upcoming film, Mirror, Mirror for TV One. "It's three movies -- a trilogy called The Fright Night Files -- and I'm in one of them," she tells Soaps In Depth. "I star opposite THE BLACKLIST's Harry Lennix as his love interest."

Actually, Rowell portrays one of two ladies in the charismatic man's life. He already had a live-in girlfriend named Jessica (played by Rowell's former Y&R daughter, Davetta Sherwood, ex-Lily) who's more than a bit unhappy with him. Upon arriving home to find Jessica performing a strange ritual with a friend, the creeped out guy will have a decision to make. Will the unique mirror that she gives him change his outlook? Tune in on Saturday, October 18, at 8 p.m. EST to find out!

Reunited!
If the chemistry between Rowell and Lennix seems easy, there's a good reason for it. "This is like our fourth project. He was my love interest [Agent Ron Wagner] on DIAGNOSIS MURDER," Rowell reveals. "And I starred in a movie last year that he's producing -- it's still being edited."

What else is ahead for the popular star? Also on Saturday, October 18, she'll be the keynote speaker at the St. Agnes Home's [http://stagneshome.org] Centennial Celebration at the Marriott hotel in Hartford, CT. For tickets or sponsorship information, click here. After that, she has a starring role in the holiday film Marry Us For Christmas, the sequel to UPtv's 2013 ratings juggernaut, Marry Me For Christmas. And keep an eye out for our Keeping Track feature with Rowell in an upcoming issue of Soaps In Depth!

This is some M*A*S*H-up! Television and film veteran Sally Kellerman -- aka Margaret "Hot Lips" Houlihan from the 1970 film -- has been tapped by THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS to play the role of Constance Bingham, according to our friends at TV Line. According to the recent casting notice for the character, Constance is a sweet and old-fashioned grandmother, who is active and alert even though she is in a wheelchair. The call also said that the short-term guest role was for five episodes.

Kellerman nabbed Golden Globe and Oscar nominations for her portrayal of Major Houlihan in the film adaptation of Robert Altman's M*A*S*H. Who do you think Constance will cross paths with in Genoa City when she airs in November? Weigh in below!

Bravo has yet to confirm that THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS star Eileen Davidson (Ashley; also Kristen on DAYS OF OUR LIVES) will be joining Lisa Rinna (ex-Billie, DAYS) as new cast members on the next season of THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF BEVERLY HILLS. But the Emmy winner just happened to be in Amsterdam earlier this week with Rinna and RHoBH star Lisa Vanderpump as the ladies took a cast vacation to the Netherlands' capital city.

Several B&B cast members are also there this week for a fan event and remote location shoot. Look for the scenes set in Amsterdam to air on B&B in early November.

Luckinbill's Good Lie

ThadLuckinbill.jpg

THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS' fans who have missed seeing J.T. on their small screens can see his portrayer, Thad Luckinbill, on the big screen when The Good Lie hits movie theaters on Friday, October 3.

While the hunk has only a small part in the Reese Witherspoon movie, Luckinbill actually had a much larger role behind the scenes. He, along with his brother, Trent, and Molly Smith (executive producer of the Oscar-nominated The Blind Side), helped produce the film. "We started a company called Black Label Media (BLM) a little over two years ago, and this is our first project," says the actor/producer. "We're really happy with it, really proud. It's been very well received. When we had a premiere in Toronto, it got a standing ovation. It's really a special movie, and has an amazing message."

Original Y&R Cast Member Returns Today!

TomHallickYR.jpg

Longtime fans of THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS will get an extra treat today when they see the truck driver who gives Phyllis a ride into Genoa City. Her driver is played by none other than original cast member Tom Hallick, who played Brad Eliot. In Y&R's first episode on March 26, 1973, Hallick's character was the one who got a lift into town from a truck driver.

"I was shocked when Y&R called," Hallick tells Soaps In Depth before adding with a chuckle: "I don't know why they're making such a big deal out of it... It's for one episode!"

The actor was assigned the dressing room that belong to the late Jeanne Cooper (Katherine) during his brief return to the top-rated soap. "Jeanne and I had done a national tour of Plaza Suite," Hallick recalls. "We'd finish at Y&R at 4:00 p.m., get a 6:00 p.m. flight and then [do a performance]. That was a lot of fun. Jeanne was always the life of the party. I never had scenes with her on the show, but we'd see each other all the time."

Hallick's original character was named after Bradley Bell, the son of late Y&R creator William J. Bell. (Today, of course, Bradley Bell is the executive producer/headwriter of THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL.) "I didn't get to see Brad while I was there, but I left him a note," Hallick says with a smile. Of William Bell Sr., Hallick fondly recalls, "I remember going up to his house on Lake Geneva [in Wisconsin]. We'd spend wonderful weekends there. He was a very talented man. I had a lot of respect for what he did."

Brad Eliot left town after his eyesight had been restored in the late '70s, while Hallick moved over to a development deal at NBC which led to his playing Maxwell Hathaway on DAYS OF OUR LIVES in 1984. Many of the people with whom Brad interacted in Genoa City are no longer part of the show's canvas, but his portrayer says he wouldn't mind doing more Y&R. "It'd be kind of fun to go back again in some capacity," he says.

EXCLUSIVE: Y&R Signs Atkinson To Contract!

When THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS turned Austin from Avery's cameraman to her on-line stalker who shot Paul and went on the run with Summer, it seemed like the character didn't have much of a future (even if he and Summer did get hitched!). But a rep for the soap reveals to Soaps In Depth that Matthew Atkinson is now on contract, so Austin will be around for quite a while!

Do you think that Austin is redeemable? Are you excited he's sticking around Genoa City?

New Headwriter for Y&R!

yrlogo.jpg

THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS has made some on-screen changes recently with some high-profile recasts, and now there's going to be a major change behind the scenes. An insider at Y&R has confirmed that executive producer Jill Farren Phelps has hired Chuck Pratt as the new headwriter of the soap. He will also receive an executive producer credit, although Phelps will still reportedly be in charge.

Pratt is known for his scripting of primteime soaps MELROSE PLACE and MODELS, INC., but is best known in daytime circles for his work on SANTA BARBARA (also with Phelps as executive producer), SUNSET BEACH, GENERAL HOSPITAL and ALL MY CHILDREN.

At this time, we don't know exactly when Pratt is scheduled to start writing scripts for Y&R so we can't be sure when his work will be seen on screen. What do you think? Does Y&R need a new headwriter? Do you think Pratt is the right man for the job?

Y&R's McKenna Has A New STATE Of Mind!

Chris_McKenna28780.jpg

THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS' Chris McKenna (Det. Harding) is about to do some moonlighting! The actor has landed a recurring gig on the upcoming NBC drama STATE OF AFFAIRS, in which Katherine Heigl plays a top advisor to Alfre Woodard's President of the United States.

McKenna plays Nick Vera, a CIA operator who provides Charleston Tucker (Heigl's character) with her first taste of the ugly business of on-the-ground intelligence gathering. A STATE rep adds that Nick's time in the field has had a strong impact on how he sees his work, politicians and the agency, adding that Nick has a "complex" relationship with Charlie.

But criminals in Genoa City should still be careful, because McKenna will continue to appear on Y&R! "For those concerned, NBC and CBS have been working together and so far [so] good on working out both schedules," the actor tweeted. A Y&R spokesperson tells Soaps In Depth that McKenna has upcoming shows that we'll see this fall. STATE OF AFFAIRS debuts on Wednesday, November 17, at 10:00 p.m. EST.

Who Is Y&R's Grace Turner?

GraceCassie.jpg

As viewers of THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS saw at the end of the Monday, August 18, episode, Grace Turner, played by Jennifer Gareis (Donna, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL), will be popping up on Tuesday, August 19. Will she be able to give Nick some info about Mariah, who's a dead ringer for Sharon's late daughter, Cassie? If anyone has answers, it'd be Grace!

As longtime Y&R viewers know, Grace was Sharon's best pal in high school. When it looked like Sharon and Nick's newborn son, Noah, wasn't going to survive, Grace and her boyfriend Tony went searching for then five-year-old Cassie, hoping that bringing her back to Sharon would help ease the loss of Noah. After Noah ended up living (yay!), Grace, who convinced Cassie's adoptive grandmother Millie to relinquish custody, opted not to disrupt Sharon's life by reuniting her with Cassie for quite some time. When she did, Sharon and Nick welcomed Cassie into their lives.

Along the way, Grace fell for Nick and seduced the inebriated hunk (who thought he was making love to his wife)! Grace's obsession with Nick led to the end of her relationship with Tony and temporarily caused Nick and Sharon to split. Grace went on to have a dalliance with Michael Baldwin. When Victor found out about Grace's role in Nick and Sharon's marital woes, he arranged for her to get a job at one of Newman's divisions in New York.

Later, Grace returned to Genoa City, revealing her relationship with Cameron Kirsten, a man who was obsessed with Sharon. Nick's wife got the shock of her life when Cameron, whom she thought she had killed, turned up alive and began threatening her. It turned out that Grace was in cahoots with calculating Cameron. Grace tried to make amends for her dastardly deeds by helping Nick and Sharon bring Cameron to justice, and later returned to New York where she presumably has been living ever since.

Tune in to Y&R tomorrow to see what info Grace has to share with Nick about the mystery of Mariah!

Muhney Confirms No Return To Y&R

MichaelMuhney.jpg

Fans holding out hope that Michael Muhney would eventually return to the role of THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS' Adam were disappointed when the actor dashed those hopes via Twitter. "Just got an official call," he posted on Wednesday, August 13. "Although things got very close, I will not be returning to Y&R. That part of my life is over. Moving on..."

However, according to Y&R insiders there were never any negotiations going on between the show and Muhney about him returning to play Adam.

The actor also tried to offer his fans some comfort by posting a quote from Dr. Seuss: "Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened."

While Adam has been seen on screen lately, his face has never been shown because the soap still has yet to cast an actor in the role. And unfortunately now it appears that whoever fills Adam's shoes, it won't be Muhney. "I was hopeful for a return," he also tweeted, "but now I'm hopeful for the future. Now you'll just have to promise to tune in to my future projects!"

One of his future projects is the upcoming TV movie Correcting Christmas, co-staring Gloria Loring (ex-Liz, DAYS OF OUR LIVES), which we'll have more information about as it comes in.
