TV Guide Exclusive: GH's Ignacio Serricchio Joins Y&R

There's a new sheriff in town. Better yet, he's a kickass cop from New York! Argentina-born heartthrob Ignacio Serricchio, best known to suds fans as psychotic mob spawn Diego Alcazar on General Hospital, is heading to The Young and the Restless where he'll be on the other side of the law. Serricchio is set to play a new character named Alex, a streetwise undercover officer who comes to Genoa City from the Big Apple with a big secret. A rep for the CBS soap tells TV Guide Magazine that the actor is expected to begin work in late October and will hit the air in December.

The Emmy-nominated Serricchio, who logged recent guest stints on The Client List, CSI: Miami, The Finder and Covert Affairs, has also been a regular on the hit internet soap The Bay. Is he the wave of the future at Y&R? When the soap's new production czars, exec producer Jill Farren Phelps and head writer Josh Griffith, reported for work a couple of months back, they promised to bring a vibrant Latino contingent to the show. Clearly, they're off to a great start!

Wow. Two African American actors and now a Latin hire. I'm impressed.

He's not the best actor though. I think he's grown from the little bit I saw of him on The Bay. IDK.

Meh. I'll give him a shot. I give them credit for diversifying the canvas. I just hope they're characters and not tokens.

Hmm. I'll give him a chance. I haven't seen him in anything since GH where he was awful. I hope he's improved since then. Whatever the case, I'm loving the ethnic injection into Genoa City.

He's got a big secret? Well duh. I'll take a guess, I think Noah got in some trouble in NY. IS didn't do much for me on GH but maybe he's improved. I will say though that there's gonna be more men in this bracket than women so some of the lousy guys need to go.

My reaction to current Y&R ...

He played a good psycho on GH when it was revealed that he was Text Message Killer.

I wasn't very impressed with him on GH so hopefully he's going to be better on Y&R.

Let's see: This character comes from NEW YORK (emphasis on NY) with a big secret. Also, Newman rich boy Noah is behaving strangely about something (or someone?) connected to NEW YORK (again, emphasis on NY). Noah was rumored to be "going gay" when the previous actor played him. Have they decided to stick with the gay angle, and this hispanic cop is Noah's secret boy toy?

I certainly hope so. I also took note that in one episode from this week Nicholas mentioned something to Noah about a break up.
