General Hospital might be sidelining the mob, but The Young and the Restless hunk Daniel Goddard (Cane) is hoping Genoa City will soon be cementing the Atkinsons (featuring two GH alums) as a bona fide crime dynasty, complete with TV pop Tristan Rogers (Colin) going head to head with Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) and/or Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman). Goddard in this week's CBS Soaps In Depth:


Genoa City really does't have a crime family," points out Goddard. "You've got Victor and Jack going at each other, but Colin is really a take-no-prisoners kind of guy. He knows what he wants and goes after it."

Goddard goes on to say he believes Rogers vs. Braeden and/or the former Robert Scorpio from Port Charles vs. the former Dr. Cliff from Pine Valley would "clash wonderfully onscreen."

'You have such wonderful potential there, where Colin could go, 'I don't know how you do it over here in America, but if you do that again, I'll have your legs cut off!"

Can I please, please, pretty please with vodka on top, be on the set the day Eric Braeden reads a script like that? For more of what Goddard would like to see happen on Y&R, pick up this week's CBS Soaps In Depth, on newstands now.
