During the in memoriam segment of the "20th SAG Awards," which aired live on TNT and TBS on Saturday, January 18, the Screen Actors Guild remembered those we lost in the past year. In addition to such greats as James Gandolfini and Peter O'Toole, the actor's union remembered "The Young and the Restless'" Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor) and Paul Walker (ex-Brandon Collins). Cooper died on Wednesday, May 8, 2013 after battling a long illness, while Walker died on Saturday, November 30, 2013 following an explosive car accident.
While character and storyline details aren't available at this time, actor Chris McKenna tweeted earlier this evening, "It appears I'll be making a bit of a return to soaps. At least for a few episodes." He tagged CBS' "The Young and the Restless" in the tweet to his followers.
In an exclusive interview with TV Guide's Michael Logan, "The Young and the Restless'" David Tom reveals that he had to audition for the role of Billy Abbott when the series was looking to recast the character when contract talks between current portrayer Billy Miller and Sony Pictures Television proved to be unsuccessful. This was despite the fact that Tom garnered two Daytime Emmy Award nominations in the category of Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series in 2000 and 2001 (he won in 2000) for his portrayal of the character.
