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 !

‘Port Charles’ Star Jay Pickett Dead at 60

UPDATED:  Just heartbreaking news over the weekend.  Former Port Charles star and soap veteran, Jay Pickett died suddenly while filming a movie.  His cause of death was not immediately known, although in a post on Sunday from Travis Mills it appears to have been from a heart attack. Pickett was 60-years-old.

In addition to his most remembered role on daytime as Frank Scanlon on the GH spinoff, Port Charles, where he appeared in over 762 episodes, Pickett also appeared on GH replacing Ted King as Lorenzo Alcazar and came back to the show in 2006-07 in the recurring role of Detective David Harper.  Jay also spent time on Days of our Lives as Dr. Chip Lakin and appeared on primetime’s Desperate Housewives and Queen Sugar countless other TV series and films.

Word of Pickett’s death first came via Facebook from Jim Heffel who is the film’s co-producer, who shared along with these images (see below): “Yesterday I lost a good friend and the world lost a great person. Jay Pickett decided to ride off into the Heavens. Jay died sitting on a horse ready to rope a steer in the movie Treasure Valley in Idaho. The way of a true cowboy. Jay wrote the story and starred in it. He was also coproducer with myself and Vernon Walker. He will be truly missed. Ride like the wind partner.”

Michael Dietz, who played Pickett’s on-screen brother, Joe Scanlon on Port Charles shared his grief on the news on Facebook, expressing: “My greatest friend has sadly left this world. We met when we were cast as brothers on Port Charles many, many years ago. He played my big brother on TV but that carried over into real life and an amazing friendship that was one of a kind. He was an incredible husband, father, friend, and godfather to my daughter. Everyone that knew him loved him. I love you, Jay. Keep smiling my friend. All my love to his family, who truly became our family as well. You will be forever missed.”

Kin Shriner (Scott, GH) and Jay’s former co-star at Port Charles shared: “The sudden passing of my pal Jay Pickett Is very sad . He loved acting and Westerns , and when we got together we laughed a lot . R.I.P. Jay”

Kelly Monaco (Ex-Livvie, PC and now Sam, GH) shared on her Instagram:  “My heart goes out to the family and friends of Jay Pickett. If you knew him, you loved him. Words can’t describe…”

Travis Mills from the film Treasure Valley, in which Pickett was filming at the time of his death, shared on Sunday morning this updated message on Facebook: “Many of you have already heard about the tragedy that happened two days ago. Jay Pickett, our leading man, writer, producer, and creator of this movie passed away suddenly while we were on location preparing to film a scene. There is no official explanation for the cause of his death but it appears to have been a heart attack. Everyone present tried as hard as they could to keep him alive. Our hearts are broken and we grieve for his family who are so devastated by this shocking tragedy.  As so many of us know, Jay was an incredible man. He was kind, sweet, and generous. He was one of the best actors I ever worked with and it was an honor to collaborate with him. Everyone who met him, even for the briefest moment, could feel his warmth, his wonderful spirit. It is difficult to find the words right now to say more. His closest friends have said that he was very happy making Treasure Valley and my hope is that he truly was. He was doing what he loved: acting, riding horses, making movies. And he was magnificent.”

Jay is survived by his wife, Elena, and their three children, Maegan, Michaela and Tyler.

We will have more on this continuing story as remembrances for Pickett are shared, and updated on news of his passing.
