star shed some light as to how he landed a role in daytime.

TV Guide Magazine: How'd a guy like you wind up in Genoa City?

Badalucco: My agent called and said Y&R wanted to offer me a role that might last a little while. I used to watch it when I was back at New Paltz College in the '70s, and the show's still on and it's No. 1! I've never worked in this genre and I kinda like the idea, as I get older, of reaching a whole new daytime demographic — the female kind. I got no problem with that! But the main reason I took it? My cousin, Rosemary, and my best friend, Ray, never miss the show. There's no way I wasn't gonna do this job! My wife, Brenda, is excited, too. How could I say no?

Badalucco also gave a little taste of what to expect with his character, Hogan.

TV Guide Magazine: Tell us about Hogan.

Badalucco: He's a great character — the kind of guy who'll cry at a wedding, but then the next day he might have to break the groom's legs over an unpaid bet.

This is Genoa City and not Port Charles right? I kid......
