Y&R Casting New Role

By SOD Posted: Sep 10, 2013
Y&R will soon be expanding the Abbott family by introducing a never-before-heard-of cousin named Andrew Abbott. The show is actively searching for "a strong leading man" in his "mid to late 30s" to play the contract role of the "handsome and educated" Andrew. The character is also described as "very driven and ambitious." Yep, sounds like an Abbott to us!

Friend of Jill?.I'm glad they are expandiing the family, but it sounds totally random. Couldn't they just recast Kyle?

Ridiculous!!!

Not to mention insulting to the show's history by retconning a member of the Abbott family. If they want more Abbotts just bring back Traci fulltime, Dina Mergeron, Keemo, and make Summer an Abbott!!! And get Jack a wife, a real one who wants him, problem solved.

Ridic.

And Andrew and his Mother/Father have been where all this time exactly?!

Stupid. Get a strong Asian male to play Keemo. Give him a middle name that everyone calls him by to fix the issue of his surfer sounding name.

Or give Jack something to do.

Maybe this Ian guy from the cult that got Nikki pregnant was really John Abbott's brother, albeit, the black sheep of the family and the nuns that took the baby while Nikki was passed out took the baby back to him and this never-before-heard-of-cousin Andrew will be Nikki's secret son. This will throw a wrench in Nikki and Victor's marriage not only because she kept this secret, but it turns out that her son is an Abbott. He comes to GC and takes both Victor and Jack down and starts the Abbott/Newman war all over again only this time it will be with Adam.......huh, huh, huh?? :lol:

YES! Why bring in all these newbies NO ONE cares about to these shows when there are characters who are family members not even used. Get Ashley back full time! Summer should be an Abbott! Why does Jack ALWAYS get the shaft and the character of Victor always comes out on top. Even if Jack gets a win...it doesn't last. The writers always favor the character of Victor. Where is Keemo? Replace Phyliss ...they need her where she is Michelle Stafford or not..characters can always be replaced. It won't be the same, but at least the character would be contributing. They need Phyliss in this stupid Summer story. Why have they totally bombed the Sharon Character? They have screwed her up so much, I don't think we will ever have a fix for her. What a waste! The writers have screwed this show up so much it is not worth watching. Get an Abby that contributes to the show. Who is this new Abby and who cares? Jack always loses the woman. His heart is much better than Victor's....so why does he always get screwed? Sorry, I am just so over stupidity and the destruction of characters. Why have a joke of a marriage with Paul and Christine who is never there? Nina is more interesting than Christine! Now they have given Kay's grandson she barely knew 2 billion dollars! That is crazy! It looks like Dylan will be Nickie's son. That story was pulled out of thin air. :shrug: If they don't want the person who played Dru back, hire someone else and let finding out she is Dru play out so we can accept another person in that role....rather than pull this current story with Neil out of thin air. That is not creative writing.

GETS SOME WRITERS WHO KNOW THE HISTORY OF THIS SHOW AND DEVELOP STORIES BASED ON THE HISTORY. Then slip in something new once in awhile and let it play out so watchers get invested.

Sorry...I guess my venting took over. Writers are doing this will all the soaps...forgetting history and not bringing in people who already have a place in the show.

a friend of mine just told me that John Abbott had a brother, Ivan, he was only mentioned, never seen, maybe the black sheep, who knows?
His son would be a cousin, and maybe this will be a chance for Jerry Douglas to come back as his brother.
Okay, I found this........."John Abbott was the son of Robert Abbott. He had one brother named Ivan."
That doesn't really make it clear if Ivan was John's brother or Robert's brother.

John had a romance with Leanna Love? When did that happen?
I don't remember anything but a kiss between him and mamie.

Ivan could be Ian from the cult and this Abbott cousin could be Nikki's son, just like I said a few days ago. If this really turns out to be the s/l - I'm going to ask to be part of the writing team :roflol: The only thing I don't like about this being the s/l is you know Victor will be an old bear to Nikki. He'll never forgive her for keeping a secret all these years and having an Abbott baby and I can't stand to see them break those two up again!!
