Y&R to Recast Role of Malcolm Winters!





The Winters family is back... well most of them. Soap Opera Digest reports that The Young and the Restless has placed a casting call for the role of Malcolm Winters, which was previously held by Emmy winner and prime time star Shemar Moore. According to the magazine, the role will hit the airwaves in November.

This is the WORSE news I heard in years! I'm so disappointed!!!! Shemar was supposed to reprise his role as Malcom this summer for some episodes and I was more than excited to watch his long-awaited return in Y&R even for a short stint!! That would have been fantastic to see him playing in both in Criminal Minds & Y&R. But seems that would never happen...

And now, they want to recast him? Are Y&R staff serious??? Malcom can't be recast, because the way Shemar played this character was just perfect. Also they forgot there is a big part of Shemar's personality involved in this character. IMO, a new Malcom is the worse decision ever made by Y&R executives...

They should have let Shemar reprise the role, at least for a couple of episodes, so he can still be in touch with the soap. I expect that Criminal Minds will be on air for 1-2 more seasons, but it will not last any longer after that. And it would have been perfect then for Shemar to return for a full-time appearance at Y&R. Even if Shemar is an awesome actor, I doubt he will find easily another primetime show.

Really too sad... And as for the recast, all the names suggested below can't beat Shemar's performance with Malcom.

To All Marcus Patrick fans. They brought him in for a read. It went very well. The decision is he is too young looking to play Malcolm Winters. I think they're looking for someone in their 40's!!!!

What is up with that. Marcus would have been perfect for the role!
