There's a new billionaire in Genoa City! Former Boy Meets World dad William Russ is set to join the cast of The Young on the Restless on December 2nd as a very, very rich character named Tucker. And that's about all we know so far ... which means the possibilities are endless!
The part of Tucker was a source of much speculation during the recent Eric Braeden contract negotiations [LINK], as the casting call signaled to some that the show was planning to recast Victor Newman (or at least find a Victor Newman type). But now that Eric is sticking with the show, we can't wait to see what might happen when the two moguls meet!
Besides Boy Meets World, you might recognize William from guest-star stints on a myriad of TV shows, including Boston Legal, Numb3rs, The Ex List -- and he also costarred as the father in the critically-acclaimed movie American History X. He even has a soap pedigree, having appeared on Another World in the late '70s.

What do you think brings Tucker (and his money) to Genoa City?
