Wishful Casting: All My Children and Hollywood Heights Star Shannon Kane as Y&R’s Lily!

Rumors are swirling all over the web that Christel Khalil is on her way out of Genoa City on The Young and the Restless. Like many of the soap's fans, I immediately started wondering who would be the perfect recast for the role of Lily Winters?

While I loved Davetta Sherwood—who took over the last time Khalil exited the series—in the role, I think Jill Farren Phelps can save time by calling up one of her Hollywood Heights stars, the sexy, stunning Shannon Kane!

All My Children's Shannon Kane glammed up the red carpet at the premiere of her new movie Brooklyn's Finest at the AMC Lincoln Square Theater in NYC on Tuesday. The film, in which she stars opposite Richard Gere, Ethan HawkeDon Cheadle and Wesley Snipes, tells the story of three unconnected Brooklyn cops who "wind up at the same deadly location after enduring vastly different career paths." The premiere brought out current and former daytime stars Sherri Shepherd, Star Jones, Tobias Truvillion and Jon Prescott. See more Brooklyn's Finest premiere photos after the jump.
