Actor Jon Briddell has been cast in the role of Eric Vanderway on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS. He's scheduled to make his debut in the episode airing Friday, Nov. 8, so you'll have to tune in to find out exactly what his story is.
Jack and Traci discovered that Dina had another child that had been adopted and no father listed which led them to discover that Eric Vanderway is their half brother. Which means that his son, Theo Vanderway, would be Kyle's cousin. Of course, Theo has said that his father is dead, so perhaps Briddell will be appearing in flashbacks? Unless this is another one of Theo's lies...
Y&R is not Briddell's first foray into daytime drama, as his IMDb page lists a role as a reporter in a couple of episodes of ABC sudser ALL MY CHILDREN back in 2010. The actor has appeared in numerous primetime series over the course of his career, including PENSACOLA: WINGS OF GOLD, FASHION HOUSE, ARMY WIVES, and AMERICAN CRIME STORY. More recently, he played Darren Jones in the DC series DOOM PATROL. Fans might also recognize him from his many TV movies, including Stalked By My Doctor, Sinister, Minister, The Wrong Crush, and Deadly Patient.
