Rival Soap Steals Emmy Winner!
THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS’ loss has become DAYS OF OUR LIVES’ gain. As first reported by our good friends at TVLine, the NBC soap has tapped Emmy winner Greg Rikaart (ex-Kevin) for a multi-episode arc! Due to DAYS’ accelerated production schedule, the Y&R fan fave will make his debut in the spring of 2018. But details surrounding his character are being kept under wraps.
Rikaart was let go from his Y&R gig back in June after 14 years as the reformed Internet predator-turned-computer engineer. He’s made a handful of Genoa City appearances since then, and — good news for Y&R fans! — sources tell TVLine that the DAYS gig won’t preclude the actor from continuing to recur on the CBS soap.
Rikaart is moving on.
