Look for the sibling rivalry between THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS’ Phyllis and Avery to soon crank up a notch, because their father is headed to Genoa City! TV Guide reports that film, stage and television vet Ken Howard has been cast as George, the sisters’ long-estranged father.
A Tony and Emmy Award winner, Howard starred in the hit ’70s series THE WHITE SHADOW, played Thomas Jefferson in the film 1776, DYNASTY and THE COLBYS, the original MELROSE PLACE and, most recently, appeared in J. Edgar. But besides all that, Howard is also the president of the Screen Actors Guild!
As of now, Howard is set to appear in four episodes; he first tapes tomorrow, January 19, and will air on Thursday, February 23. The character of George was last seen in Genoa City back in the mid-’90s, when Duke Stroud (Vince McKinnon, ANOTHER WORLD) briefly played the part.
