CBS’ late-night legend David Letterman may be hanging up his hat as “The Late Show” host next year, but could he continue on in another capacity within the network? Judging from an audition tape he put together last week for “The Young and the Restless,” he just might land a spot on daytime’s most popular sudser!

Quipping that he heard it from a friend that “there’s gonna be an opening on ‘The Young and the Restless,'” the Indiana native threw his hat in the ring, using scenes from Phyllis’ (Gina Tognoni) big return to the canvas. Check out the audition tape below, and let us know how you would feel if Letterman in fact did make an appearance in Genoa City: Would you like to see the popular host pop in for a guest appearance?
