Y&R Casting "Quirky" Yet Calculating Lab Tech Character! Who Would You Suggest To Play The Part?

Another casting call this week from The Young and the Restless! According to Soap Opera Digest, the number one soap is now looking for a quirky character named Tobias!

According to the casting breakdown, the character is  described as:  “A lab technician in his mid 20s to early 30s. The character will be quirky but ‘have a cold, calculating energy about him.’  The role is non-contract but still considered to be a major one.  The role begins taping on October 24.”

Sounds a bit like GH’s Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) but with an edge, doesn’t it? Or, does it?  So put on your casting director hats, and let us know who you think would be a good fit for the part?

Is there someone from daytime or primetime TV that would fit the bill to you?  Will this “lab tech” be working in the hospital …  Jabot …  or somewhere else?  Comment below!

ATWT’s Henry. Embarrassed I cannot remember the actor ‘s name ,

Trent Dawson?

Patrick
Patrick

i’m hoping, it’s Trent Dawson, as well…. he was so good with Barbara on ATWT… these two carried me to the finale… of my all time fave

I hope… that, if it’s Trent… that he’s paired with ED… Ashley

with his comedic… romantic chops… and capable of much intrigue… that it’s with ED

they would be a combustible pairing

jimh(leave it to beaver)

Yes Patrick, Trent(Henry) and Colleen(Barbara) were good together…would love to see them both back in daytime!!!

RICARDO

Trent! Thank you Ricardo and jimh! Trent would be awesome. He’s got the chops to do comedy as well as the dramatic stuff. Loved Henry.

Ricardo…oh, yes. Oh, how I WISH that Trent Dawson would come back to Daytime already!!!!! Y&R, B&B, DOOL, GH…A-N-Y of the 4 remaining soaps would be TRULY LUCKY to land Trent Dawson. IMO, that’s how T-A-L-E-N-T-E-D Trent Dawson is as an actor!!!!! Yes.

Take care, Ricardo. Peace.

How about the actor who played Vimal on OLTL…he and Rama were fun to watch…but Bradford Anderson would be my best bet because…you know…A.E.P.?…GHs and Y&Rs ‘Actor Exchange Program’…lol

Erick

Don’t you mean FOP (Friends of Phelps)?

Oh can’t he be in in his late forties to early fifties?
Because I would like Michael Knight, Michael Knight, Michael Knight.
I miss him! I miss Tadd Martin, and he can play quirky and funny.

Harry…Oh, I agree!!!!! Michael Knight can play ANY ROLE PERIOD!!!!!

Just from reading the title Bradford Anderson came to mind. Jill Ferren-Phelps will cast one of her friends I’m sure!

Timmm

Him and Steve Burton are close and we know Jill and Steve are close.

I totally agree withsteve and Bradford are so close, and so I Jill to Bradford, to me it is Bradford job to turn down if he wants too.

Brett…Oh, yes. I agree. I wouldn’t put ANYTHING past that woman. Nope.

Reagan

It does sound like Bradford & I would think he could end up their giving his relationship with Jill/Steve… but then I thought she would have cast Brandon Barrash as the new Billy or new Adam for the same reasons… and that didn’t happen.

Mo

What about the guy who played the lab tech on B&B?

Jimmy

It does sound a lot like Spinelli, and I would love Bradford Anderson to take on the role, I really miss him on GH! Y&R could definitely take advantage of his incredible talent in this role.

Trent Dawson also came to mind, but he’s about 15-20 years too old for this role.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Hi, Jimmy,
The first actor that came to mind was Spinelli for me also. Then I read the word, ‘calculating’. I don’t think he was a calculating character…so, I don’t know.
Nonetheless, Andrew Trischitta, would fit this role to the max.
Those of you who are/were fans of OLTL, may remember him in the role of Jack Manning?….like father like son; or so it was said and sung.
Andrew is really good looking, the right age and incredibly talented.

Jess

Just hire Bradford Anderson and reunite the Port Chuck gang!

I bet this Lab Tech changes the paternity test for Victoria’s baby. Probably on Victor’s payroll.

Bradford Anderson

This is clearly Steve Burton getting his friend a job.

Bradford…possibly. Or it could be that JFP trying to get one of her ‘FOJ-like friends’ a job. Any way you look at it…y-i-k-e-s.

Iakovos

Just don’t make the lab tech a bungler or one who will succumb to a vixen seeking parentage/DNA tests. SO OVER IT!

Change it to a female and have Louis Sorel, Liz Hubard, Robin Strasser, or Juliet Mills.

Johnny

Yes great idea, Bring Louise Sorel ex Vivian Days of Our lives to the Young and The Restless as Dina Mergeron Jacks Mother. Marla Adams Is the original Dina. Or recast sharons mom with Louise Sorel or Elizabeth Hubbard ex Lucinda As The World Turns.

Barbara from Atlanta

Along the lines of Meredith Baxter and Sally Kellerman, I’ll pick………………………….

harry

Bah ha ha!!! Very funny, Barbara.
Who’s next? Gary Busey?

jimh(leave it to beaver)

Did Sharon ever have a father on the series…Gary Busey could play the part…lol

Harry…GOOD ONE…HAHAHAHAHA!!!!! Dude…all of a sudden, I have this image in my mind of Gary Busey and Jill Farren Phelps CONSTANTLY BUTTING HEADS…LOL!!!!! My $$$ would be on Gary Busey to win…LOL!!!!! Yep.

CeeCee

That is hilarious…Gary Busey…he should bring The Donald along too.

I don’t care who they hire — I’m just thrilled another new character is joining the show. It’s been over a week since the announcement of Sally Kellerman joining the show and I was beginning to worry the writers were going to focus on creating story for all the characters they already have that are doing nothing,

Nanci

Ha! I totally agree!

How can they not cast Bradford Anderson?

Nate

TOTALLY needs to be Brendan Coughlin, aka “T” on Days. If they are not going to use him, Y&R needs to get on that.

I love both Trent Dawson and Bradford Anderson and both would be amazing on YR! Miss both of them. Can we have both? Don’t make me choose! Two of my faves. You’ve got me in the mood for Henry and Spinelli, now I’m drooling!

Nikki
Nikki

I have to agree. Trent Dawson was a favorite as Henry and Spinelli would be my first choice although I think he might still be under contract on G.H. Either one would be great!

Reagan
Reagan

Spinelli is the obvious choice… but then I thought Brandon Barash (ex Johnny) was the obvious choice for the new Billy or the new Adam. Neither of those happened. Eric Nelson (who was the new AMC reboot) might look too young but I could see him having fun in that role. Jason Cook (ex Shawn, Days; ex Matt, GH) would be another cutie I would love to see back on my TV screen. IF they would go older, I’ll love for Dr. David Hayward (AMC) to show up! I also agree that I like the idea of the character being a female…. bring on Tamara Braun!

SpixieFan
SpixieFan

I would love if Bradford Anderson would take it, although, I just might start to cry if it became contract (I want Spin back at GH ) … but JaSpin is what got me hooked on GH.. so to have Steve and Bradford working together again would be my second favorite soap dream come true.. (right after a Spixie reunion…. 🙂 )

What will happen when Spencer learns that the father he grieved for over three years is alive and well?

Meanwhile, Bechtel took to Twitter to confirm his return to the ABC daytime drama series expressing: “Well…it’s out of the bag. It was so hard not to reply to all of you. I’m back and I am still Spencer. I can’t wait for next week. Thank you SO much to everyone who supported me. I love being a part of this phenomenal show #gh”

Viewers are looking forward to scenes between Bechtel and Marcus Coloma (Nikolas), Maura West (Ava), Genie Francis (Laura) and James Patrick Stuart (Valentin). Will those all come to pass? Stay tuned.

So, happy to know Bechtel is back as the mischievous Spencer C.? Comment below.

Real Andrews Returns As Marcus Taggert On General Hospital

Well, well, well! Looks who’s back in Port Charles!  A major surprise occurred during Thursday’s “Next-On-General Hospital” teasers when viewers saw Sonny’s former nemesis Marcus Taggert, and Sonny himself, in a clip from a scene.

Turns out that today on Friday, January 17th look for the return of Real Andrews to his role as Taggert!  Andrews took to his Twitter and Instagram account to confirm the casting news.

Maurice Benard tweeted: He’s Back!!! Bigger and better than ever. On General Hospital. You don’t want to miss it.”

While, Andrews tweeted: “It is going to be a great ride.”

Real played the role of Marcus from 1996-1997 and then again from 1998-2003.   He was last seen on the soaps on Days of our Lives back in 2016 and 2017.

In real life, Benard and Andrews are good friends.

Now the question is, could Taggert’s re-emergence tie in to the new case that Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) is working on, and somehow the return of Nikolas Cassadine to the canvas?  Years ago, Taggert’s sister, Gia was involved with the dark prince, leaving fans speculating that perhaps Nik and Gia had a daughter, who could turn out to be Trina played by Sydney Mikayla.  Hmmm.

So, give a big “welcome back” to Real as Taggert hits the screen today on GH via the comment section below.
