Stop the wishful casting, kids. Soap Opera Digest is reporting The Young and the Restless has put the brakes on finding yet another actor to play the role of Tucker McCall.
Soap Opera Uncensored first broke news of the CBS sudser looking for someone to play Kay Chancellor's (Jeanne Cooper) son/rival for the legendary character's upcoming exit storyline. Apparently, Y&R has nixed those plans, fearing a new face in the role—previously played by Stephen Nichols and William Russ—would be too much for the audience to deal with.
Why not just use Nichols? Better yet, why not bring the talented actor back to General Hospital as Stefan Cassadine?
