Daytime Confidential is reporting that William Russ was recently seen leaving CBS studios after paying a special visit to the set of Y&R.

Here's the tease...

From Boy Meets World to Tuck(er) Everlasting? We hear former child actor-turned-sitcom dad William Russ (Boy Meets World) was seen leaving CBS Studios recently, after paying a visit to the set of The Young and the Restless. Hmmm, wonder what role could Russ possibly be filling in Genoa City? I'll never tell...
...and a photo.

***UPDATE***

News of William Russ being cast on Y&R was originally leaked last week by Ilene Kristen, who revealed on Brandon's Buzz that Russ -- a friend of hers -- had just landed a role on the soap. It was later posted by the fabulous Roger Newcomb at We Love Soaps.

Didn't he used to be on Another World? I think he was one of Gil's sons.

William Russ is a good actor, but if they're thinking this will make the viewers forget EB no frickin' way.

Bergman could make mincemeat out of the writing of this show....just not strong enough, I am sorry, for anyone to come in, let alone those that are already there. Instead of filling the VOID left by EB/VN, why not work with what you have to make the show balanced, instead of worrying about bringing in new actors/characters? But again, I guess that just falls back to we need fresh blood and stronger writers who can produce quality character-driven material.

If there had been a vision... then keeping the baby Jack's or at least perceived to be Jack's and then have Adam take the baby .... when that was discovered... have Jack become focused on hating Adam.

At that point you have the layers of Jack losing his perceived child and mourning the loss...
Sharon being hurt and Jack angry...
Then finding out what Adam did to Ashley and Jack being angry...

At that point writing Victor out could have been lessened, but truthfully... I think Sony did this with deliberation to kill the show.

Sony has no reason to try to cancel the show. They make alot of money off it internationally.

I remember him at AW as Gil's son Burt who was Clarice's first husband! He was pretty good back then but replaced and the character took a wrong turn! I never saw "Boy Meets World" so it's been over 30 years since I saw this guy! I think he won't last long anyway! He'll probably marry Gloria and die so she can be rich again! :puke:

I posted several days ago that Ilene Kristen said on one of those BTR shows that her friend William Russ had landed a role on Y&R.

Brandon's Buzz had on Ilene Kristen, and she broke it on HIS show, not DC!

Thanks for the heads up!

I'm guessing she didn't give any hints re: who he'll be playing?

No, we just speculated it could be Tucker, but no hints as to who he will be playing.

Thanks for the information Kenny and Roger.

Even after two years I cannot quite believe what an obscene reversal of fortune Y&R continues to experience.

I have seen the actor in several things but I'm not really a fan. I guess we just have to wait and see regarding his stint on Y&R.

ITA!
Sony may make a lot of money off the show, but maybe not as much as they'd like, I'd venture that no one knows what's in their minds, but it sure seems like they're trying to kill the show.
