Meet Genoa City's Newest Residents on The Young and The Restless!





Call the fire department because The Young and the Restless is bringing the heat! EW.com is reporting Y&R has cast two fine bruthas, Redaric Williams and Lamon Archey. Williams landed the role of Tyler Douglas. 

Back in August we posted Williams' impressive audition tape, where Tyler is hired by Neil (Kristoff St. John) at Jabot and mixes things up with his baby girl Lily (Christel Khalil). Archey has signed on to play Mason. Look for both to debut on Y&R in November.

This is premature, but I wonder if Josh Griffin is trying to build a fanbase war. Lily & Cane vs Lily & Tyler. IDK but I'm really excited for this November.

Very nice!

Either one would be fine with the new Lily. (Wishful thinking.)

Thankfully, this show has come to its senses and hired some MalcolmBots! I love it!

Well, you know what they say...variety is the SPICE of LIFE.

Adam just doesn't do it for everyone either, you know.

Either one of these could've worked as a recast Malcolm...and maybe that's what "Mason" is. IDK. But it could work.

Anyway, nice to see a little diversity on Y&R.

And just for the record.....Put Adam against either one of these dudes and there's no competition at ALL. Adam WHO????

Hot dang now dis is what I'm talkin' about...I hope they can act; Jill has to do more than talk the talk to reel me back in..I don't care for her and it depends on their storyline.

They'll probably be straddled with that vapid Lily but hey who cares I've overlooked her for years...at least I'd have something to focus on in her scenes. I hope DeVon can get some air...is he still with the show?

Do these two beefcakes even know how to ACT? Guess it doesn't matter. The new TPTB seem to be more concerned with bringing on eye candy than bothering with compelling storytelling.

YUMMY! Many actors start out as models. I am willing to give them a chance before I judge their [very sexy] abilities.

Since they have short hair, I can't call them "Hair Models", so I guess I can call them "Scalp Models"?

Or maybe "Chest Models", lol!

Redaric looks like a cross between Bow Wow, and Tom Cruise son Connor.

DAYYYYUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!

I hope they can act. If not, I am happy with doing them like I did Shemar Moore. I just looked and it didn't matter what he said.

They're really pretty, but if they can't act, they'll need to leave! I hope Mason is secretly Nate.

@everyone: I like Jill Phelps! She knows the core audience of this soap. So she didn't come to play. At this moment Y&R is finally going balls to the walls again!

Lawd help me. I thought Redaric Williams was fine but that Lamon Archey got him beat. I agree with whoever said that this Mason character should be Dr. Nate. Yes, please be Dr. Nate. And they need to cast Roxanne a sister and do a repeat of Neil/Dru/Malcolm/Olivia with Devon/Roxy/Dr. Nate/and Roxy's sister. I am over the character of Lily since TPTB seem content in having her being held hostage by CK and Lane fans. i love what she represents but the character has always fallen short of what I thought that she could be...Lily Amanda Winters, thou are loosed. You are free. I don't care about you anymore. I am moving on.

@stoney07: Malcolm is 40 something years old. These actors are in their 20's. Neither could have played Mal.

At this point, it would appear that JFP knows her core audience. let's see what JG writes for them and how often.

@Divatude58: He wrote the Winters as Frountbruner during LML days. So as far as I know he can be trusted. But we shall see.

I always thought that the front burner during those times was always more about Dru than anything. Then they tried the same thing with Lily as played by CK and she just couldn't carry it nor was the character old enough for the stories they wrote for her. JMO. I am hopefully optimistic.

Well its about time. I've long needed a young brotha on canvas besides Devon whose just not sexy at all. I hope they can act. Some models can pull it off. Tyler is gonna be the Lane interloper right? Poor guy. Mason should've been Nate. I hope they're not limited to interacting with only the Winters.

Doesn't Y&R already have a fan war over Lily...those that love her only being paired with every white man in town versus those that want her to be paired with a black man at least once...Lane fans versus the rest of the viewing population...those who love Ck in the role versus those that are demanding anyone but CK in the role.

From the moment CK was cast as Dru's daughter, fans have been at war over the character.

IMO, if Sony/CBS/Y&R/JFP/JG wanted a REAL crazy fan war, they would hook Lily up with a white legacy character...either Adam or Noah...and watch the Laners fracture...they would eat themselves alive. Matter of fact, after a year of the triangle and a fer masterful strokes of the pen, they would be wanting Cane dead. JMO!

Wow ... two new very fine looking men! God I hope they last.

I know I'll be keeping my eyes fixated on Lamon Archey.

(But come on guys ... give them some screen time then judge their abilities.)

@Divatude58: i'm just a fan of getting CK off the show for good. At least she is recurring so we are not committed to her. Gotta take your blessings when they come! Wink Besides that Josh had the story about Dru and then he had Damon with Phyllis where the story was equally about him as it was about her. Sadly they never paired him with Olivia before he was written off.

But we need to hear the words that they are casting a young sistah with some spunk set this thing off right. Somehow I still hope they can work Shannon Kane into the show or someone with that personality type.

If these are new characters please JFP bring on Ameila Marshall as one of the mothers (and Neil) Wink @ She has worked with her and knows she could be a wonderful addition to any show! Big smile

@harlee490: Have her join the show as Rebecca an entrepreneurial investor, who has earned her fortune through investment banking and later started to invest in start-up's that became successful. She would be like the Oprah of Genoa City. Now she has come to town with plans to get her hooks on a new project and pay Victor back for stealing the cosmetic company Safra out from under her.

I hope they can act, or we'll have more people up in arms about more recasts down the road, right? Smile
