Daytime television's answer to Richard Branson is no more. According to Soap Opera Uncensored, suds veteran Stephen Nichols has taped his last episode as Tucker McCall on The Young and the Restless. In other Y&R casting news, the online magazine is reporting Jessica Heap is out as Eden Baldwin.

At last. I have been waiting to hear about more firings and they are both lame characters :cheer:

Tucker is a user and a scum bag.
Eden is just a whore

Good. Tucker had all kinds of potential in the beginning, but Bell never gave the character a real direction, and therefore, he never caught on. He's been taken in so many different ways, that I don't think it's even worth trying to do anything with him at this point. I don't blame Phelps/Griffin for making that decision.

As for Eden, another character that just never really made much sense. Her existence that is. Did Michael really need another sibling? And she wasn't so bad when she was still a teenager. Once they brought her back with Heap in the role, there was never really anything solid there. She seemed like an extra, and nothing more. She's been on the show for four years now and I know nothing about her. Certainly nothing about her under Heap's portrayal.

No Surprise, the past bad blood btwn JFP & SN still stands I can't recall seeing not one interview of either singing the other praises, shit just look at how fast J.Farren unass Genie Francis from the canvas. HA! Sony/CBS making all the decisions right?.. Um`Hum`Yeah OK!

Bad blood or not, Phelps is making the right decision in regards to the show. Losing Francis and Nichols hurts the talent pool the show has, but their characters aren't really going to be missed or create a void because they're no longer around. Besides, Tucker was only created as a Victor replacement when Braeden nearly left the show permanently. Same goes for Francis replacing Scott, correct? Neither replacements were necessary in the end, so see ya!

I am interested to see what DAYS will do with this decision. They're clearly interest in keeping Evans around as Kayla. Would they throw a bone to Nichols and bring him back as Steve? Would Nichols return in a recurring capacity? Who knows.

I don't think it 'hurts the talent pool'
The show still have THEIR vets that belong on the show and deserve the most air time. I personally believe Genie Francis is over rated, she makes a good heroine but she will never be anything except for Laura on GH. GenV was a fail and I believe the same thing for Tucker

The ball is in the GH and DOOL court now. We'll see what the ptb will do. SN was great on both shows. Hope the ptb at one of the shows will make
a deal with him to return.

Anyone remember William Russ (the dad from Boy Meets World) as Tucker when he first came on in 2009? Although SN is a better vet soap actor, I always liked Russ' version better.

Good choices. Tucker has merely been floundering around so its time to put this character to bed. SN will be fine. He's got two options. Eden has been a unneeded dud character from the get go. 3 strikes you're out.

So if Eden's leaving can we at least hear what the hell happened with the whole Ricky s/l who cleaned the knife and hid it? Please at least wrap this one up before she just disappears like the rest! :soapbox: :headbang: :frustration: :bat:

Don't get me wrong I am fine with her leaving I just want an ending who was it? Who checked Daisy out? is it the same person? wtf

Yes Mam! WR, he was my Tuck Dude (LOL) and was perfect with Jess, I think that's why many warmed to Tristan Rogers Colin with Jill just like Russ the pairing blended very well from jump.
