For the first time in nearly a decade, CBS Daytime veteran and “Criminal Minds” star Shemar Moore will return to television’s #1 Daytime Drama, "The Young and the Restless," for a special 2-day guest appearance, Wednesday, Sept. 10 and Thursday, Sept. 11 (12:30-1:30 PM, ET; 11:00 AM-12:00 Noon, PT) on the CBS Television Network.
Moore, who appeared as a series regular for 11 years (1994–2002 and 2004–2005), will reprise his role as the charismatic Malcolm Winters, a portrayal that earned him a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series in 2000.
During his two-day return, Moore will reunite with longtime friend and co-star Kristoff St. John, who portrays his on-screen brother, Neil Winters. In the episodes, Malcolm returns to Genoa City after leaving town years before without a proper goodbye. Now, he’s back for an important visit with the Winters family to make amends and catch up on everything he’s missed.
“I am excited about returning to 'The Young and the Restless' as a special guest,” said Moore. “This is where I got my start and I am looking forward to reuniting with my soap opera family.”
Last year, the actor raised over $630,000 on Indiegogo to help fund his upcoming feature film "The Bounce Back," which he stars in and also executive produces.
Directed by Youssef Delara ("Filly Brown") and written by Delara and Victor Teran, from a story by Staci Robinson, the romantic comedy stars Moore as an author who's marketing a relationship book but hasn't gotten over his own heartbreak. Bill Bellamy co-stars as his friend and manager, and Nadine Velasquez as love interest.
As "Bounce Back" recently wrapped production in Los Angeles, we spoke with Moore and Bellamy about the movie and what other projects they have coming up, including a possible sequel to their 2001 comedy "The Brothers." Read that interview here.
