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 !

Ingo Rademacher Speaks Out On His Dismissal From GH Sharing: “I Was Hoping to Play Jax For Another 10 or 25 Years and Unfortunately, That’s Not Going to Happen”

For the first time since he was fired for not adhering to General Hospital’s and Disney/ABC’s Covid-19 vaccine mandate, Ingo Rademacher (Ex-Jax), addressed his exit from the soap opera via an “official video” message on his Instagram account.

Ingo expressed: “I’m sorry that I didn’t put out this video earlier, but this is about thanking you guys, the fans of the show and also the GH crew and cast. I was on the show for 25 years. They were like my family a lot of the people there. I was hoping to play Jax for another 10 or 25 years and unfortunately, that’s not going to happen. I want to thank you guys for sticking with Jax for 25 years and I’m sorry that I’m not there anymore to play Jax, which is still something that I am trying to process  … it’s just kind of crazy.”

Rademacher also took aim at his former co-star, Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) for announcing on Twitter that he was no longer on the show, before he had a chance to do so, which he says was a huge disappointment to him given that they worked together for 25 years.

He went on to say how he appreciated all the positive comments from the fans adding, “A lot of you come on there to say that you’re vaccinated but stand for medical freedom, I love hearing that, because I believe it should be a choice.”  Ingo continued to express his view, “I don’t agree with vaccine mandates or corporations ever being able to mandate a vaccine to keep your job.”

The actor closed with another nod to the viewers of GH adding, “Thank you so much for supporting me for 25 years. I will have more news later on, but for now, just wanted to thank all of you amazing fans. Thank you.”

You can watch Rademacher’s full statement via his IG post below.  Then, let us know what you thought of Ingo’s long-awaited exit message in the comment section.

I’m so impressed with the way they navigate the Covid protocols. It’s not easy but we’ll worth it. We’ve got some fun storylines coming up. I’ve been thrown in the middle of a current storyline and I think Felicia’s part in it gives it some color. Stay tuned!”

Earlier in the week on Tuesday via Twitter, Kristina expressed: “Tomorrow I head back to work on General Hospital! Lucky me. I couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of that family once again. Here we go. More to come. Felicia Scorpio rides again.”
