Since originating the role of singer Danny Romalotti nearly 40 years ago, actor Michael Damian has kept on rocking, both on and off The Young and the Restless. His latest project? Directing the film High Strung Free Dance, in theaters now.

This is the second installment in the franchise, but not a sequelDamian told Soap Opera Digest:

"You don’t have to see the first one to understand the second one, and the scale of this one is probably three times the scale of the first movie. Our log line is ‘Dream big and dance free,’ and we’re trying to inspire people of all ages."

High Strung Free Dance stars Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman's Jane Seymour, Disney heartthrob Thomas Doherty, and British actor Ace Bhatti, who appeared on Eastenders.

Damian also discussed a possible return to Y&R. He revealed he'd love to mix it up with exes Phyllis (Michelle Stafford) and Christine (Lauralee Bell):

"They reached out to me before but the timing wasn’t good. So, if we can time it out right and it’s in between films, absolutely. It’d be wonderful. Danny could give Phyllis a piece of his mind and just let him give Cricket one more kiss. That would be fun.”

Damian also dishes on his bond with the late Jeanne Cooper (Katherine) and his appreciation of his decades-long entertainment career. The latest edition of Soap Opera Digest is on stands now.
