Here We Go Again! Y&R Snags Father Knows Best's Elinor Donahue
TV Guide's Michael Logan is reporting the stunt-casting bonanza over at The Young and the Restless continues. Y&R has hired Father Knows Best star Elinor Donahue to act as a judge who officiates Billy (Billy Miller) and Victoria's (Amelia Heinle) wedding slated for Sept 8 (my birthday of all days). Head writer Scott Hamner stated,
Relationship and romance is partly about trying to achieve a retro-fantasy of better, simpler times — bringing Elinor on amps up that homage to the perfect family," says Y&R co-head writer Scott Hamner. "We have great admiration for Elinor. She's an iconic part of our collective psyche and it seemed like we couldn't do it without her. We love her!"
The sound you hear is my head exploding all over the DC offices.
