When it comes to Eric Braeden and The Young and the Restless, all's well that ends well!
The 68-year-old actor, who last week said he had "pulled the plug" on contract negotiations that would keep him on board as Young and the Restless icon Victor Newman, has finally come to an agreement with show producers. A representative for Eric confirms the deal with TheWrap.com.
Eric's last day of shooting prior to the breakdown of negotiations was September 23rd, when he filmed scenes that will air November 2nd. No word yet on how or when his character will return to Genoa City, but with his health and family life in flux, we're sure there's a plausible explanation to be had somewhere! For now, we're just thrilled that this casting crisis was averted -- Y&R without Victor Newman? That's like Victor Newman without a moustache. All KINDS of wrong.
Are you happy to have Eric back?
