Jack’s “Crazy” Search For Proof!

THE YOUNG & THE REST­LESS’ Jack may have hit the pa­ter­nity jack­pot with the news that Phillip Chan­cel­lor could pos­si­bly be his fa­ther — and he’s ea­ger to prove it. Even if it means tak­ing le­gal ac­tion to ex­hume the body!

The In Depth Story: As por- trayer Peter Bergman points out, “Jack has been so lost since the night the truth came out. This could be the an­swer to ev­ery­thing.

“And no, it’s not lost on Jack that,” the ac­tor con­tin­ues slyly, “should he be proven a Chan­cel­lor, some claim on the Chan­cel­lor legacy is his!”

While Chan­cel­lor’s cur­rent CEO, Cane, has al­ready been pac­ing over that pos­si­bil­ity, Bergman in­sists that his char­ac­ter is more in­ter­ested in his per­sonal life than his pro­fes- sional one. “Jack, more than any­thing, is much hun­grier for a con­nec­tion than a place to work or a place to own. He is hungry for a con­crete fa­mil­ial con­nec­tion that tells him who he is, that serves as a guide for him in a way that his fa­ther and his fa­ther’s mem­ory have been a guide for him. He’s lost that, and he’s desperate for it. That is what he is most in­ter­ested in.”

Be­fore Jack can es­tab­lish any kind of fa­mil­ial con­nec­tion, though, he needs to prove that he is ac­tu­ally Phillip’s son. With Phillip III and his son, Chance, off the grid, Jack asked Jill about ex­hum­ing Phillip’s body to con­duct a DNA test, only to be re­buffed by his ex. “So Jack has no choice but to sue to get the right to ex­hume the body!” de­clares Bergman. “There aren’t a whole lot of vi­able op­tions for Jack to prove what he wants to prove. Now we start look­ing at some crazy op­tions!”

Jack’s “been pretty desperate” to find out who his fa­ther is, says Bergman.
