Ex-GH Star Ignacio Serricchio to Show His Badge on The Young and the Restless



Are you ready for a new cop to hit Genoa City? According to TV Guide, former General Hospital star Ignacio Serricchio (ex-Diego) has landed the role of Alex on The Young and the Restless. Reportedly, the character is “a streetwise undercover officer who comes to Genoa City from the Big Apple with a big secret.”

Serricchio will first air in December.

This show is in need of some younger good looking men and JFP knows that so she is pulling out the stops to get them on the show. Ignacio is one of the best looking Latino actors that GH ever had on their show (second to Antonio Sabato Jr). The show needs some diversity too and this will help along with the other 2 new African American hotties that were recently hired. They were stupid to write off Ricky because Peter Porte was hot. With Daniel and possibly Billy leaving, we need some sexy males.

Darlotto99 ... look up the word diversity. That definition would include racial differences as well as sexual differences. I'm not sure either if you are a homophobe but I'm pretty much sure that SoapGirl is. Take a look at post #10 in the October 28th thread regarding Greg Rikaart and GLSEN. I've challenged SoapGirl on that comment but have not yet been responded to.

Genoa City does need some sane normal gay characters. It's long past due and is now badly needed. We exist and most of us are as normal as any straight person. Make it part of the Y&R landscape.

That being said ... why should this new character be gay? All this means initially is that there is going to be yet another big huge mystery to solve.

I know this is far fetched.... but could this be the REAL Ricky Williams?????? I mean what if crazy Ricky was an imposter? and Ignacio(ex Diego GH) is actually Paul Williams son?

I'm all for new blood on the show but I don't get all of the MEN coming on board and no woman. The cast already has a slew of them.

As I am thinking about it, is it possible that Noah will turn out to be gay since we don't know why he left NYC in a big hurry and now this new cop from NYC turns up in GC with a big secret?!

please say that is the case because this show needs a lot more diversity than just COLOR.

ITA...I do not want to see what would be called " a gay SL"...I want to see gay characters living their lives. What is the difference? A gay SL is one that will be told for a particular story arc and the characters will be gone when it is over. Gay characters just living their lives will stick around and have a job and break ups and make ups like everyone else. I want these people to stay around so that i can invest in them. Make them a part of the landscape.

Divatude58 ... I think that is what I am saying also. Just because you happen to be gay does not make you a demented sexually depraved demon. Most gay people are just like their straight counterparts ... and that is how they should be portrayed.

tedew -- Once again, we need some bisexual characters on these shows, so that simply gay characters wont have anyone to have romance with, other than the 1 other gay. Kyle could be a bi, torn between Eden and Noah (which would have to make Noah a bi); or something like that. Or Summer, torn between Fen and Eden (which would make Eden a bi). I wold REALLY like to see Red as a sex-craved bi, since that would explain a lot of her behavior.

Having 100% gay or lesbian characters would make for some pretty boring dialog for the 2 gays characters on a particular show.

...you know that a lot of us open-minded straights still believe male homosexuals have a hard time with monogamy, cause males are not naturally wired that way. Plus, there doesn't seem to be much of a religious component among male gays.

But I don't want to get caught up in politics, cause the more I talk about it, the further 'right' on social issues I seem to start moving.

hey mon ... I think I see your points. But like I said, gay characters could be mainstream who just happen to be gay. They don't really even have to have gay related story lines. Throwing confused bisexuals into the mix is where the complications would arise.

Regarding monogamy ... most people, even gay people don't realized that most gay couples live transparently in communities just like the "normal" rest of their neighbours. I think you may be right about monogamy issues with the other portion of gay males, but actually the female gay population are the ones who seem to have commitment issues and tend not to stay together long term.

What irked me though is when someone dropped this comment: "I want to throw up" into that October 8th thread about Greg Rikaart and GLSEN. There seemed to be obvious intent there and that poster will not defend or explain that comment.

I think this new character Alex's secret is that maybe he had a gay relationship with Noah Newman when they were both in NYC!

Yeah, that's what I'm thinking too; I always got the nagging feeling that when Noah returned a few months back--around the anniversary of Cassie's death, when Schmidt was still playing him--that he was carrying something around and even when he moved in with Eden for a bit they both seemed to know that nothing was gonna happen between the two of them again. If this is the case, I'm looking forward to how it plays out. And on the plus side, they'll be one of the best looking couples on daytime, gay or straight.
