Veteran soap star Mark Pinter is heading to Genoa City. TV Guide's Michael Logan is reporting Pinter, best known as Grant Harrison on NBC's defunct soap Another World, has landed a juicy role on The Young and the Restless. According to the magazine, Pinter will play Marcus Wheeler, who is described as:
Sharon (Sharon Case) was on the verge of going stir crazy in the little cottage hideaway where Adam (Michael Muhney) stashed her. Once Adam told her her he believes she's having a mental breakdown, it only made Sharon act nuttier. I’m not sure what to think of this storyline, but Case is doing a bang up job.
Going undercover for your wife to sabotage your brother can only end badly. This week on The Young and the Restless, Jack (Peter Bergman) takes Billy (Billy Miller) to task for stabbing him in the back.
Meanwhile, Sharon (Sharon Case) continues to lurk in the shadows of Adam (Michael Muhney) and Chelsea’s (Melissa Claire Egan) marriage. Phyllis (Michelle Stafford) watches as Jack collapses in his office. Watch this week’s Y&R promo after the jump!
Victor’s (Eric Braeden) former office sans self-portrait was a thoroughfare of traffic as Neil (Kristoff St. John), Billy (Billy Miller), Phyllis (Michelle Stafford) and Abby (Marcy Rylan) all paraded in and out of Jack’s (Peter Bergman) new corporate digs. In his continued good mood, Jack offered Neil the job of Jabot CEO and Phyllis a position at Newman. He also turned down Abby’s 500 million dollar proposal to return Newman Enterprises to Victor.
While it was Jack who was making moves like Jagger, Billy wasn’t happy to discover his brother had offered Neil the top job at Jabot. Billy told Jack that it is their family’s company and he should be in charge of it. When Jack pushed back and said he wanted Billy to help him build a new Abbott legacy, I noticed Billy did his best to hide his anger.
Katherine (Jeanne Cooper) tried to convince Jack (Peter Bergman) he didn’t want to run an empire and should just stick with one little company, Jabot. What I had a hard time understanding is why Jack–who was in big trouble financially before Victor (Eric Braeden) was revealed to be alive– is expected to hand over everything he worked so hard to get. Yes, it’s always wonderful to watch Katherine and Jack scenes, but I do not want to see Jack roll over. READ MORE
Wednesday’s The Young and the Restless was all about Jack (Peter Bergman) throwing the Newman family out of Newman Enterprises. Victor (Eric Braeden) and Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) were eating breakfast when they received a call from Nick (Joshua Morrow) stating Jack wanted to see them at Newman. Victor told Nick that Jack could wait, but he and Nikki still hurried to the office.
Jack quickly revealed he now had a combination of enough stock and shareholders backing him to take control of Newman. He fired Victor, Nick and Victoria (Amelia Heinle) and told them they had until the next day to pack up and leave.
