Snapper Foster is finally coming home. Jill's older brother, who left GC nearly 30 years ago for a three-month teaching fellowship in London, will be back in town this June -- brought to you by David Hasslehoff.
David, 57, played Snapper for seven years, before going on to even bigger fame in shows like Knight Rider and Baywatch. In a statement given to Entertainment Weekly, the actor said of his return to daytime:
"In 1976, Bill Bell, creator of America's No. 1 soap opera, took a chance on a young and very green actor. Playing Snapper in 850 shows during the six years I appeared molded my craft, my attitude, and my work ethic. Being asked to come back to appear in several episodes gives me a chance to say thanks, as I have an amazing amount of respect and heartfelt emotion for Bill, his family, and my time on Young and the Restless."
"The Hoff" added, "I just hope I can remember all those lines."
It'll be a regular Foster family reunion this summer in GC -- Entertainment Weekly also reports that Wings Hauser is set to reprise his role as Greg Foster, and Julianna McCarthy will be back as Liz Foster Brooks. What could bring them all to town? We're suddenly worried about Jill ...
