Tyler Douglas Audition Tape Reveals Possible Young and Restless SPOILERS!





A You Tube video of an actor named Redaric Williams auditioning for the role of Tyler Douglas on The Young and the Restless has revealed some juicy potential spoilers! First off, the character, who is reportedly a nephew of Sarge (Darnell Williams), appears to be coming to work for Neil (Kristoff St. John) at Jabot — though he pronounces it Ja-Butt!

 Tyler's first encounter appears to be with a sassier version of Lily Winters, currently played by Christel Khalil. Could Tyler be a potential love interest for Lily? Can you say hella hot? Alright Jill and Josh, y'all are really starting to impress me. Watch the video after the jump!

I have no interest in Sarge or in this character. Handsome guy, but why is this being posted?

@pferrando: Because Y&R is adding a dashing you MBA African American male character who will be a lead. Did you miss the memo? JFP is going to restore the African American presence on this show and not in the way MAB did. So THIS BROTHA is happy to see at least one soap acknowledge that without my grandma, mom, sisters and aunt's it would not have become number 1#. -- SOAP FAN X Steve

@Jamey Giddens: As the resident part-time thespian here. I'd say the man has soul, he's got heart and he's got flavor. And for the women he is not bad on the eyes.

Looks like he could weave in well to the show and obviously be paired with Lily!

Now when you find other audition tapes please post. But so far so good.

Here's another audition tape: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bfply_5Yhqk

Don't like this guy. He acts like soap opera actors from 1970's.

I agree David. I like Redaric Williams better too.

Here's another: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cIG7vPdoIVk

I second that emotion!

I guess I should look at the actual audition video (how very unprofessional of me!)

*Okay now that I've actually peeped the audition video, I have to say Redaric is quite promising- the dialogue could have been written better (a bit stilted and too expository) but he rose above it. Charming.

Okay, one last thing. Unless it's explicit in this script to mispronounce Jabot, these guys should really have looked on You Tube and just did a search to see if they can find the proper pronunciation for Jabot, but maybe in theater it might be a bit harsher, depending on who you audition for. And the last guy should've worn a suit, knowing the character description-- dress the part.

@MsAgentProvocateur1: The last one looked like he was auditioning for the role in a Boyz In The Hood squeal. Plus, he licked his lips. This ain't no LL Cool J flick. Also if he wants to play a guy with an MBA he needed to lose the earring. We don't want Diddy!

Now as for the original audition posted. He does have the look and can act. So that's good. I'm sure Kristoff can take him under his wing.

@Everyone: Side note: Here is a guy who auditioned for the role of Cameron on Days: http://youtu.be/TWfDbwxnjNc

Thoughts?

@david46208. I agree about the 3rd one I saw. He should've worn a suit at the very least. I had trouble envisioning him as an MBA. At least the previous two audition candidates looked the part. And I would say because it is a soap and sex appeal really does go a long way-- the first audition stood out the most (in a good way).

Could Ms. Khalil have took a look at this Redaric guy and walked back in on her way out the negotiation door??? Hmm...I guess one can change one's mind.

I'm already hoping that they take Redaric Williams.

He looks fresh, young and incredibly handsome. He's fitting the description of the character quite well.

LOL

The one thing I loved about Y&R was that they featured strong, AA characters (Olivia, Dru, Malcolm - even Neil). I hope this is a step to restoring that glory. Y&R needs to find the next SM - the bottom line is that he was a HUGE reason for Y&R's success. According to one CBS survey, Y&R lost 1 million AA viewers after SM left. (I believe it was half SM and the other half that awful, disgusting Neil as a skidrow alcoholic - thank goodness VR and CK came on scene, because it was going down fast.)

Regardless of whether this guy gets the part, I'm pleased with the initial direction/vision.

No, I tore that memo up.
I am all for restoring AA presence on the show, but I would rather it happen with vets, not newbies who can't act. He's hot, hon, but I wasn't buying the audition. Dru, baby, you coming?

Do actors post their audition tapes regularly? Would such a practice hurt their chances of being offered a role? Just curious, as I have no clue. Lol.

Well, I guess it's a no brainer what Miss Christel's sticking point is in her contract negotiations: she doesn't want to kiss this guy. I sure wish TPTB would CUT her lose and hire a REAL actress. Besides, if they try to pair Lily with a NEW guy the Lane fanatics will have a freaking COW. if anyone other than CK is playing Lily they won't care one way or the other.

@MsAgentProvocateur1: I wonder if she figured out that she ain't gonna get no work anywhere else. I mean when she was gone for 8 months she did one guest role. Not anything to write home about.

Nah, Coffee_Junkie, I don't think it is this guy specifically. It is strictly conjecture on my part about being paired away from Cane. I was joking that perhaps she had objections about being separated from her onscreen hubby but took one look at this new (gorgeous) prospect and possibly changed her mind and decided to stay and continue negotiations.

But seriously, what might have changed her mind might be due to practical reasons, as david46208 mentioned. The current job market and based on previous experiences where the film career didn't take off, all these things might have helped changed her tune and sent her back into negotiations.

OKAY, let me just say I love you all for posting these...a friend of mine is actually auditioning as well Smile I should audition...teeheehee....

Anyway, I'm glad to see the African American's aren't all illiterate crackheads in Genoa City now. And I'm glad to see Lily at a place that isn't that 1970's Brady Bunch house, or Crimson Lights.

But most of all, I'm glad to see an attractive AA brotha that can actually ACT (even if he DOESN'T get the part). I'm just glad all around. If yall thought my Y&R pushing was bad in the past....if this show gets better, WATCH OUT!! I can get even MORE annoying with my optimism!! Laughing out loud

I co-sign the first actor in the role. He's 1.)Pretty, 2.)A capable actor, and 3.)Has screen presence. That's all you need for daytime role, and he has it. Go for it JFP/JG.

I would LOVE to see a daughter of Dru with a together young fella like this. He has an actual job that he has actual qualifications for, and he's charming.

It would be just the refreshing change the Lily character would need. Get her to act her age, and not like the 40yo woman the character is currently pretending to be.

Now, let's wait and see if Miss Khalil will step up to the occasion.

I just watched the audition. Did they really have the gal reading as Lily say, "you'll be working for ME?" what a freaking JOKE. They need to recast Lily ASAP.

Well, CK's going to have to pull out her inner flirt, and make this work, if she intends to stick around. She will also have to pull out her inner backbone, if I'm to believe she's this dude's boss.

If arrives to the challenge, it could all work out for everyone.

I'd love to know how many more actors they auditioned for this role and/or are they still auditioning? What I like about Mr. Williams is the crisp and polished "look" that he brought with him to the audition. I'll forgive the mispronounciation of Jabot. Maybe in his characterization, he chose to believe Tyler Douglas isn't completely familiar with the cosmetics world. There is also an animation that is present throughout, not overly so, but enough that he doesn't stand there like a potted plant. And as many have noted, he is very easy on the eyes. If he should end up snagging the role good luck to him, both in front of the camera and backstage also. Intrigue happens on both sides... Innocent

I'm sorry...nothing against the actress, but err uhh...I can't help but wonder if THIS is why she wanted off the show....????? O_O I pray not...I'd really hate to have to dislike CK.

I'm not going to assume....so for right now, I'll just play dumb.

Stoney, I swear you read my mind sometimes, LOL. I, too, pray that rumors are just rumors, and for the moment I will just play dumb.

I actually like CK, she seems like a nice enough person. I don't even want to entertain the other thought…

Well, here's her chance to FINALLY put all those nasty rumors to rest.
