Shemar Moore On His Return To Y&R: "A lot Of People Get Successful And It’s Like Their Soap Days Never Happened. I’ll Never Be That Guy!"

For many years fans of the number one daytime drama The Young and the Restless have been hoping Shemar Moore would make a return to the role he made soap-famous … that of Malcolm Winters!  The Daytime Emmy winner last appeared on the soap back in 2005!

Fast-forward to last week, where viewers learned the news that the Criminal Minds star is on his way back to Genoa City for a two episode appearance on the upcoming September 10th and 11th episodes.

Shemar spoke to the New York Post about Malcolm’s comeback, and what it means personally for Moore stating: “The fans haven’t forgotten about me and it’s nice to see the excitement is still there.  And I hope it’s not the only time I can do this.  I hope they write (the episodes) in a way that maybe this is something I can do from time to time.  A lot of people get successful and it’s like their soap days never happened.  I’ll never be that guy.  I’ve always said I wouldn’t be where I am today without Y&R and Malcolm Winters, and without (late show creator) Bill Bell taking a chance on me.”

So, do you hope this marks the beginning of more Moore on Y&R?  What do you think about Shemar’s statement about how he will never look down on his time on the soaps, when some actors who have gone on to fame wanted it taken off their resume?

The mark of a good & great actor is to realize all their acting experiences add to the resume which enables them to move to other roles, as Shemar has done. It was obvious he ‘had something’ special on Y&R and his switch to prime time seemed a natural transition for him.
It will probably be a joy to return to the old cast (and meet the newer cast too) and have a lighter storyline than on CM.
He doesn’t need any ‘Good Luck’ returning, as he’ll ‘ace’ it for sure.

Its very honest and gracious and nice to hear. Its like Carrie Underwood. She always acknowledged American Idol when she won at awards for several years. She thanked the show and the fans for getting her where she was. Now after umpteen zillion awards it might sound like she is beating a dead horse to thank American Idol, so she doesnt usually, but always the fans. Shemar and Carrie are classy.

Welcome back Shemar! Here’s to hoping you can stick around for more than a couple of shows next time.

So much class wrapped up in one beautiful body! And such humility! Can’t wait to see you back on #YR Shemar. Lily can use a little help fro her bio Dad and I hope you turn Hillary’s head so both Neil and Devon dump her!

I fret any air time the Winters family gets because the stories written for them are terrible BUT I commend this actor for giving props to the soap genre and not forgetting where he got his big break.

In your opinion. Cause right now The Winters are about the ONLY thing keeping me watching. Maybe in the past the Winters were overlooked, but this year, they have been incredible In my humble opinion. I mean to be honest I could say that about EVERY family on this show. The writing for every family has been awful. So to just single out The Winters is a little unfair. Except 4 Lily #1. I ALWAYS despise Lily #1.

Your right, the WHOLE show has been written poorly but I singled out the Winters’ because of Shemar’s return.

Travis, I agree. The Winters’ family is stepping it up a bit. The triangle is vaguely interesting. Lily of the Valley represents everything I detest–she utilizes Valley Girl Speech, engages in vocal growling, uses a flirtatious tone of voice whether she is speaking to Kane or Abby, and while trying to play a scene replete this tragic undertones, she seems to be thinking about her next manicure or that Fendi bag she saw in the window of Fenmore’s. De Yawn is as boring watching a bally bug trying to right itself up and Neal makes Mr. Brady look like a… Read more »

It’s great that he’s willing and able to return and hasn’t forgotten his soap roots. They’re nothing to be ashamed of. Looking forward to seeing him as Malcolm!

People (actors) will always have fans because he is not full of himself. I like Criminal Minds.He and the rest of the actors are great. Julianne Moore also returned to As the World Turns unlike others who wouldn’t. The fans appreciate this and wil lof course support and watch the other things they do.Good Luck and even tho I don’t like Y&R, I will watch those two days.

“I’ll never be that guy” – you mean successful? Cuz a Criminal Minds reject isn’t exactly Johnny Depp-level of success.

Criminal Minds is one of my fav dramas. He has had a good run in primetime.

Very classy. Look forward to his return even if it brief.

The Winters’ storyline needs a boost. Can’t stand the current state of the Winters family. Neal seems a pathetic fool and I can’t stand Devon or Lilly. Cane is just a non-entity and Hillary can do so much better than Neal or Devon. This family was once one of my faves, now I FF through all their scenes. Hope Malcolm can do something to provide some interest. I WANT to care, I just find ALL of them awful right now. It’s sad.

I’ll gladly watch Shemar for one, two, or any number of episodes on Y&R. Not only is he humble, but he is great on the eyes! I’ll watch him on any show! Shemar was on Arsenio recently and talked for about 1/2 hour? Plus Criminal Minds is always on many TV channels.

Good for him for not forgetting his roots in acting. Two days or not it is more than some will do…IF they even acknowledge ever being on a soap.

It is my belief that Shemar Moore is a very gracious man.
He is full of gratitude and doesn’t think he is to important
to go back to day time.
Truly an amazing man
Not to mention, he looks amazing with a full head of hair
or a shaved head!
He is a beautiful person inside and out from what I’ve
Seen!
Bless you sir!
The world needs more people like you !

Irene Cara, Best-Known For Smash Hits ‘Fame’ and ‘Flashdance… What A Feeling’, Dead at 63

Oscar and Grammy winner, Irene Cara has passed away.  The singer/songwriter/actress, known for her memorable vocal performances to the theme of the hit movie, Fame, and singing the title track to another 80’s blockbuster, Flashdance, apparently died in her Florida home yesterday. The cause of death is not yet known.

According to her publicist, Judith Moore on Twitter, the rep shared: “This is the absolute worst part of being a publicist. I can’t believe I’ve had to write this, let alone release the news.  It is with profound sadness that on behalf of her family I announce the passing of Irene Cara. The Academy Award-winning actress, singer, songwriter and producer passed away in her Florida home.  Irene’s family has requested privacy as they process their grief. She was a beautifully gifted soul whose legacy will live forever through her music and films.”

A little known fact is that Irene’s first acting gig was on the daytime drama, Love of Life from 1970-1971 in the role of Daisy Allen.   She later appeared in TV roles on: What’s Happening, Kojak, Roots: The Next Generations, and in the film, Sparkle and many more.

Later, Cara first rose to prominence when she was cast in the 1980’s musical film Fame, where she sang the title track and starred in as Coco Hernandez.  Her vocal performance in Fame earned her two Grammy Award nominations for Best New Artist and Best Pop Vocal Performance Female in 1981.

Two years later, Cara not only picked up two Grammy Awards for her performance, but also an Oscar for  co-writing, “Flashdance… What a Feeling” from another 80’s pop culture smash, Flashdance.  At the Grammys in 1984, Irene won for Best Pop Vocal Performance, Female, and Best Album of an Original Score Written for a Motion Picture or a Television Special.  She took home the Oscar for Best Original Song at the Academy Awards in 1983.

Cara’s rep added, that at the time of Irene’s death they were working on new projects: “Working on amazing projects that would have made her  and her fans incredibly happy. Her manager and I will finish them. She’d want that.”
