If you’ve been loving Ray Wise as “The Young and the Restless’” Ian Ward, then you’re in luck: The actor is starring in Hulu’s new comedy series, “Farmed and Dangerous,” which debuts next month!
The series tells the story of agricultural giant Animoil, which thinks it has the solution to feeding the world (and the company’s pockets). But when activist Chip Randolph (John Sloan) sets out to expose what happens before the meat gets butchered, thing spiral dangerously out of control. And smack dab in the middle of the drama sits Buck (Wise), the gun-collecting head of IFIB and lead representative for Animoil!
With many casting changes in place and new faces set to arrive in Genoa City, the next few weeks on “The Young and the Restless” may be a bit of a flurry. But no worries, because Soap Opera Network has got all the upcoming casting deets right here in one handy-dandy reference place!
“The Young and the Restless’” Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) is in for a surprise come 2014 in the form of a very unexpected blast from her past: Ian Ward, the former cult leader she knew back in the 80s, is headed to Genoa City!
A show rep confirms that actor Ray Wise begins taping on Friday, December 13, as Ward, whom Nikki met during her time at New World Commune about 30 years ago. As fans now know, Victor’s wife got pregnant during her stay at the NWC, and the child she gave birth to — yet never saw — is town newbie Dylan McAvoy (Steve Burton).
Wise, who’ll be appearing in multiple episodes and working with several “Y&R” actors, is known for his roles on shows like “Twin Peaks,” “24,” “Mad Men” and “How I Met Your Mother.” Watch for his Genoa City debut on Thursday, January 23.
