Stephen Nichols Joins The Young and the Restless

By December 17, 2009

Follow me on:

Former beloved DAYS star Stephen Nichols (ex-Steve Johnson) has been cast on The Young and the Restless as billionaire Tucker McCall, according to his official website.

TV Guide reports that actor William Russ began airing as Tucker McCall on December 2, but the show decided to take the character in another direction. Stephen is scheduled to begin taping today, December 17, and will first air as the new Tucker McCall on Wednesday, January 27, 2010.

It was nearly one year ago that DAYS fans learned the heartbreaking news that two of the show's most beloved favorites, Stephen and his former co-star Mary Beth Evans (ex-Kayla Johnson) were let go due to budget cuts. Many fans were outraged that these two didn't even get a proper exit storyline. The last time we saw Steve and Kayla on our screens was on Tuesday, February 17, when Kayla was in her hospital bed worried about the state of Bo and Hope's marriage.

Heartfelt congratulations go out to Stephen Nichols in his new role as Tucker McCall on The Young and the Restless. Best of luck to this amazingly talented actor. What is DAYS's loss is truly another show's gain.
