The Young and the Restless is set to welcome back David Faustino for a second time and welcome Alec Mapa for the first time. And don’t forget Julie Chen will be guest starring as well!
Tinsel Town, Here We Come
Fans will have more to enjoy as Y&R is going all-out for May sweeps! Soap Cities brought you news last week that Julie Chen will guest star on the soap next month. It’s now set to add two more stars to its upcoming foray into Hollywood, according to a report in CBS Soaps in Depth. Married with Children star David Faustino will repeat his role as the unscrupulous, Howard Green, GC Buzz’s former producer on Wednesday, May 17 and Thursday, May 18. Faustino originally appeared on the soap in September 2016. Fans will recall that Howard was given the boot by Devon (Bryton James), who took over the show to make it more respectable. It certainly will be interesting to see Howard and Hilary (Mishael Morgan) meet again!
Another Familiar Face Onboard
Alec Mapa is another familiar face that will grace Y&R fans’ screens on Tuesday, May 16. He will play Anthony, a hotel clerk. Count on Anthony to have a rather trying encounter with an obnoxious Genoa City resident. We think it might be Chloe. What do you think Soap Cities readers? Mama has dozens of television and movie credits under his belt, including a recurring role on Ugly Betty; his own film Alec Mapa: Baby Daddy, and as a presenter on Scandalicious.
From Genoa City to L.A.–A Parade of Stars!
Faustino and Mapa join another familiar face, The Talk’s Julie Chen in guest starring roles for the May Hollywood episodes. Hilary will doggedly pursue an interview with Chen on her show. Will she succeed? We hope so! Perhaps other stars will also pay Y&R a visit during these special episodes! You never know–this is a soap opera, after all!
