The Young and the Restless may have found two newcomers who may (finally) help fans forget that Shemar Moore, aka Malcom Winters, ever lived and breathed in Genoa City.
Newcomer Redaric Williams (pictured, right), an international model who recently became the face of Carling Black Label in South Africa, will play the new role of Tyler Douglas. Lamon Archey (pictured left), another model making the transition to the small screen, will play a new dude named Mason. Unfortunately, that’s all the information that Y&R is releasing on these hunks for now — but we did learn that they’ll start showing up around the athletic club and the coffee house in November.
Jill Farren Phelps has been promising lots of changes on Y&R since taking over as executive producer in the wake of Maria Arena Bell’s exit. (The new head writer is Josh Griffith). Last month, she made the decision to drop Genie Francis, who has played Genevieve Atkinson, since May 2011. Marcy Rylan, aka Abby Newman, was also shown the door.
