Y&R's Daniel Goddard on Alter Ego Cane: "It Drives Him Crazy The Way Tyler Looks at Lily"






For years, the only thing that seemed to stand in the way of Cane (Daniel Goddard) and Lily's (Christel Khalil) happiness was the Aussie's sketchy, ever-changing backstory on The Young and the Restless. Now a more palpable threat has arisen in the form of gorgeous flirt Tyler Michaelson (Redaric Williams).

In the Feb. 25 issue of Soap Opera Digest, Goddard previews Cane's reaction to Lily once again being caught in close proximity with Ty (They get stranded together during a blizzard!), when she's supposed to be with her husband. Said Goddard:  

"Cane admits that it drives him crazy the way Tyler looks at Lily," Goddard says. "She thinks Cane is overreacting and that the whole thing with Tyler is innocent. She tells Cane that there's nothing to worry about."

I don't know about y'all, but methinks Mrs. Ashby doth protest too much!

Can is an integral part of this Show, and he's not even an Abbott or a Newman. In 2011 and 2012, we trashed through his entire familial back-story, found out that his Dad was a crime-boss, and his Mother the town crazee. Now Colin and Gen are gone, and Cane is still a very big part of the canvas.

That's the way that it is, and it cannot be changed. If Cane were to die, it would have happened in February 2011. When he died right in front of us on the church steps. What the Lane girls must have done to SONY and CBS to make them force MAB and Hogan to bring Cane back from the dead. The whole Cane/Caleb/gas-lighting s/l was the WORST s/l in Y&R history. Shall I remind you, Laura Spencer had Robert Scorpio hanging from a balcony handrail while some ghoulish song blared in the background, "You will never love me...."

But yet Cane remains. At CBS.com Dan Goddards' photo is one of the most prominent pictures. He is the one on Price is Right. He is the one at the Shopping Mall anniversary gatherings. Cane is going no-where.

Victoria Rowell is NEVER coming back to this Show. Yeah, I'd like it, but it ain't happeneing. Id'like Sabyn Gabet as Tricia to come back. Lauren as Brittany Hodges. Aint gonna happen. Can we resurrect Colleen? Is Jana's ghost available tomorrow? No. #ell, I'd even settle for Amber and her porn site right now.

But right now, we have Avery reminiscing with Steve Burton. Chloe married to The Chipmunk, Lily in a car in a blizzard with Tyler.

The last thing Neil Winters needs is another child. He has baby Moses, an infant he never sees, who has been off-screen since last year.

It's baffling that Neil forced himself to marry Sophia for Moses sake and now he barely mentions the kid.

Does his hot young girlfriend Leslie even know Neil has a baby boy stashed away somewhere?

That said, I'd love to see Drucilla return. She's the only fan fav who could really shake things up for the entire show.

Christel Khalil's Lily sizzles onscreen with Daniel Goddard's Cane to the point where you feel like a Peepie--hottest couple in daytime. But when it comes to Tyler--he is so slimey, such an awful actor with his 70s pimp ways and mannerism most viewers who are women, are turned completely OFF! Tyler has as much chemistry with Lily as Cane has with MCE's Chelsea who should only be paired with Chloe (guess Muhney got tired of doing all the work). Listen up YR--give us a gay StoryLine with Chloe and Chelsea. Jaime, I know youll agree a gay SL is long overdue and these women have almost as much chemistry as Kevin had with Daniel Romallotti.

Sorry to all you Christel and Lily haters but the Girl is On Fire and we love her. Since they have ghettoed down Leslie you have to be happy with that stereotypical woman and move the Hell on!

Sorry scrumptious , but Neil mentions Moses far more than you'd expect. It's just said we don't see him. Just the other day on valentines day Sophia called and Neil left Leslie to talk to her abt Moses. He even mentions before making plans with Leslie that he doesn't have Moses for the weekend so lets get busy.

I was not a fan of Sophia, their pairing, or her getting pregnant right out of the gate. I was just surprised they didn't attempt to recast Sophia so that there was a better actress with more chemistry with Neil instead of writing her out.

Sad how with Neil all the women he finds all seem the same once they get him to kiss them. You look back to Rachel... Mia peeples... To today and you just see sweet "oh Neil" women and none that have the feisty quality and "go after what I want" quality that drucilla had. Leslie had that before they paired her with Neil, had her leave a better career as a litigator for a corporate lawyer gig, and brought her brother on.

But Neil mentions Moses frequently.

I think Dan Goddard is playing both sides of the fence, and to anyone who matters.

Have you ever heard of a character being brought back like Cane Ashby was in Feb 2011? Killed off, on screen, cadaver in the morgue, identified by and being cried over by Colin, dead as a door-nail. But brought back, none-the-less.

Then the Queen of Daytime is brought on as his Mother, Genie Francis, to seal the deal? This guy must have given quite a few guys and gals in Los Angeles the 'roll of their life-time", to nab Laura Spencer and Scorpio as his parents.

And the guy, as we can see from TraceyAbbott's avatar, is very willing to show off the 'goods' in his underwear, a bit too eager, if you ask me. His lats need some work, and so do his delts, but I'm sure he has brought a smile to many executives at SONY and CBS, both male and female.

Since he is approaching 40 yrs old, he may want to brush up with some Viagra or Cialis, 'when the time is right', in case some blushing gal corporate hack, or drooling guy executive, comes knocking on his dressing room door.

As I review the old Beastmaster clips, I see Danny-boy was actually in better shape back then. He needs to hit the weights something hard for his back, and commit to eating only fruits, nuts, vegetables, and whole grains-- or he may find himself having to give up air-time to Stevie Burton, who is in much better shape than he is.

Good lord...so much speculation.

No one ever has gotten anywhere on the casting couch in Hollywood. Evil

I like and have always liked the character of Cane. He was one of the few characters who didn't really "change" during MABs tenure. The character was written all over the place, but he kinda kept the Cane and Lily thing going for the viewers. Other than Billy and Victoria, there weren't really many couples to get behind at that time.

He's been on the show for some time, and he's good to keep around IMO.

I'm sorry but even though making for some possible interesting new directions, non of these recent beginnings of breakups are ringing true for me. They are all to sudden and without any or with no good or dubious reasons.

Also... what on earth was that wealthy Dowager Chancellor out driving by herself at her age in the middle of a massive blizzard? Has she no limos nor chauffeurs to drive them?

OK, just finished watching the "STORM OF THE CENTURY" "YOU BETTER WATCH OUT GENOA CITY" and all I can say is that we were duped!

Sorry, all those who think I am always negative but this was a bust and a promotional lie for me!!!

Not one thing happened here that doesn't happen all the time on the show. The biggest joke of them all is that everyone was out driving in it! I live on the east coast where we've had blizzards and snowstorms and not only does my job close down early but the city does, as well. On top of that, EVERYONE STAYS HOME and bars and restaurants don't open.

EVERY SINGLE RESIDENT in Genoa City jumped out into their cars to go somewhere... except for Billy and Victoria! (And soooooo happy they got 5 minutes in the whole storm to let us know they will be redecorated that cheap set!!!)

I have to agree with TEDEW and WHY was Katherine out driving?! Who else doesn't see Adrianna becoming her new best friend like she was for Amber?! Repeat repeat repeat.

Sure, I loved that kiss between Lauren and Carmine and was ecstatic that it was just a kiss and not a hotel room romp! now Michael and Lauren have some spice. I didn't understand Sharon running over to Adam's or Nick at the bar because WHO THE HELL WAS WATCHING FAITH?!! Or even Chloe discovering she's pregnant and the best time to rush over to tell the man who you just told to take a long walk off a short pier that youre pregnant WAS DURING A BLIZZARD THEY HAVE NICKNAMED "THE STORM OF THE CENTURY"!!!

Or Nikki not just staying at the Abbott Mansion DURING a snow storm but forcing the hired help to drive you to your penthouse across town! (I can just see Nikki saying "I need to be home with Victor" and hopping into a Ford F150 pick-up truck with the lawnmower and rakes poking out the back of the truck bed!)

Avery leaves an hour after the DJ says STAY OFF THE ROAD FOLKS!

Lily staying late at the office with Tyler and not just saying it will get done tomorrow there is a blizzard about to hit. OR her twins being left at home with the sitter as a BLIZZARD "the storm of the century" is about to hit!?!!!

I have no problem with the stories... in essence... but I do have a problem with CBS marketing promoting it as if there was going to be something major happening! Nothing new happened other than Abby deciding to go out and grab a cocktail DURING A BLIZZARD and meeting Chavez or whatever his name is! Sure, that was great and I will like the pairing because I love ABBY but where is the suspense in a promoted blizzard if every damn citizen is driving around town!

It was lazy writing and even worse promotion. It just makes it desperate on the part of Jill and Josh to have written that to weave the stories together when you could have still told the story with just FLURRIES OUTSIDE!!!

SUCH A WASTE!

^^ I will say that the "storm of the century" aspect was unnecessary for the reasons you stated above. Still, I enjoyed the majority of the stories played out.

ITA. I want to know if Jessica Collins is someone's long lost daughter. How the f*ck does she get so much airtime? The entire show evolves around this insipid character.

^^ This bears repeating. Lily doesn't even register that she finds Tyler at least physically attractive. I blame the actress because the storytelling dictates that there should some attraction as the duo have been placed in close proximity on multiple occasions. The way it's played now, if/when Lily acts on Tyler's advances it will seem out of nowhere. CK is completely flat in her performances. She registered an easy chemistry with Michael Grazedi and at least tries with Daniel Goddard. With Redaric Williams she is not even making the effort.

I have a feeling this is very new for the actress, and having her "connecting" with Tyler doesn't feel comfortable for her. I've never viewed CK as a strong actress, but normally she's been put with white male love interests, where she comes across more relaxed, but here she seems very different. Well, one thing I don't care for is Lily and Cane weren't having problems, and all of a sudden we had Tyler flirting her. Then she's constantly mentioning her husband as if she has no interest. Then you flip the switch, and we've got Cane fighting for Chelsea to get interviewed at Jabot's new Fashion division. Now he's been popping up around her acting a little too happy to just to be in her presence. So I don't know where this story is going, but it does feel obvious that they are forcing it a bit for Tyler and Lily to bond. If Lily does somewhat connect with Tyler, it'll probably be because she's noticing Cane and Chelsea getting closer. But with Chelsea being pregnant by Adam, that won't go anywhere, then we'll have Lane back together.

This story could be better, if the writers actually took out the time to make it entertaining.

People don't you think the reason that she is not registering attraction with Tyler is not her lack of acting chops BUT her abundance of acting talent?!

I mean, if we all remember her story with cane for some reason she is head over heels with cane so of course she wouldn't be attracted to Tyler. For one thing Tyler gives off this air of "I could have her in a second" vibe that would repeal lily because she has always gone for sweet guys!

Remember right before Kevin gave her an std he was sweet as pie and understanding ... She was having parent issues I believe. Then Daniel was all sweet to her and nice. Then cane was just gushing sweet and gentlemanly.

Tyler is the cool dude who has all this bravado and a crapload of ego. Lily doesn't go for that. SO MAYBE JUST MAYBE all the negative of why she's not having chemistry is exactly how it's being written and she is being directed to act.

Yes Tyler and the actor are HOT!! And I would definitely let him eat crackers in bed but that doesn't mean so would every other gay man or woman.

Dyllan, I think you know why Jessica Collins is getting so much air time. It is those in your face tatas; and that just the right size, not too small or big booty. Throw in the bleach blonde bombshell hair, the law degree, and she can cook... what a perfect catch. From what I have read about JFP on this site, Collins is just what Ms Jill would want on her Show. No wonder she has 2 of the biggest studs on the Show fighting over her.

But ya, The Storm of the Century was a bust, and boring, and predictable. The biggest s/l to come out of this is Katherine and Adriana. Like someone else said, I expect an 'Amber'-like s/l to come out of this one. Too bad we can't get Adrianne Franz to play the part.

Dan Goddard knows what it 'takes' to get ahead in the entertainment industry, and I'm sure he knows how to 'give it', as well. Male, female, when you enter the world of Entertainment, you have to do what is 'necessary' to stay on the forefront. I'm sure that the BeastMaster does what he has to do, from time to time.

Regarding the Storm of the Century being a bust ... has there really been any satisfaction to what was being promoted as an extreme high point weather wise or disaster wise over the past few years?

Hey Tedew, how about every time there is an accident or the car breaks down going from an office to a club, in a city they always manage to be out in the middle of nowhere without any other traffic, buildings or anything around?

Brittany, 'ghettoed down' Leslie? What does that mean. Is ghettoed the opposite of 'valleyed.' What makes Leslie ghetto? Your comments are a little culturally insensitive. No I don't think that Tyler is an awful actor and he certainly turns me on--and I am all woman hon! May be Cane's insecurity stems from his dishonesty. He and Lily sizzle? He has illtreated her--yes ause comes in many guises, constantly morphing, lying about who you are to the one you 'love' is mental abuse. Is that what turns you on Brittany?

Having lived in Wisconsin in a climate where blizzards are common, it's a known fact that we all drive around in them anyway.

But remember it's a soap. And I'd much rather have a common natural disaster bring people together for believable reasons than create something like Clear Springs, or a poisoned water system to drive story.

I liked it.

Yeah, there were a couple of moments I had to "suspend disbelief", but it's continuing to drive Josh's new tales.

My biggest complaint...that stupid DJ.

I have liked snowstorm and the effect on some stories, how it moved things forward, there is fallout over some stories.

This tool placing Josh's stories to drive more story and I love it. I haven't enjoyed Y&R like this since '2006.

There are areas which could be tweaked but overall Y&R has improved with their storytelling and look by 75% and still growing better.

I honestly think we could be entering in a new golden era for Y&R again Wink

PS: Pferrando If you ever met the music director of Y&R, especially after 1 or 3 martini (Drunk, it would be ugly my friend! Wink I do love that song playing during the Dylan\Avery scenes...I want that song and if someone knows who sings it or the name so I can go to iTunes Smile

There's an app you can get called MusicID (free). You hold it as close to the music source as possible, and most times it can ID the song and tell you if you can buy it! It works!

I'd have a good martini with anyone associated with this show...LOTS to talk about, good and bad. Lately mostly good. Love
