We have bad news and good news for fans of The Young and the Restless:
Too busy on Criminal Minds, Shemar Moore will not be reprising the role of Malcolm Winters.
But the character is making a comeback on the top-rated soap opera, as Entertainment Weekly reports Darius McCrary has signed on for the role.
Best known as Eddie Winslow from long-running ABC sitcom Family Matters, McCrary debuts on December 29.
“We are thrilled to have the character of Malcolm back on Y&R,” said Maria Bell, the drama’s co-executive producer/head writer, in a statement. “Malcolm, Neil Winters’ brother, has always been a catalyst to exciting stories. He’s coming back to town to see his brother and to reunite with his biological daughter, Lily Winters, as she fights for her life. Malcolm is a photographer... someone who lives on the edge and who always pushes the envelope.”
