When first offered the role of Malcolm Winters on The Young and the Restless, former Family Matters star Darius McCrary says he didn't hesitate to accept.

“I’ve always thought it was a great gig. I always wanted to do it. So when my manager approached me and mentioned The Young and the Restless I thought, ‘Wow. That’s hot,'" the actor recently said.

Of course, Winters is one of the most beloved characters in show history. Does McCrary feel any pressure stepping into a role created by Shemar Moore?

“The responsibility I have is to be the best performer that I can be," he said. "Hopefully if I’m delivering solid performances and I’m really good as an actor, none of that will even matter.

"I hope that everybody loves me in this role just as much as they loved [Moore], but I hope they love me just a little more."

So far, so good. Do you like McCrary in this role, readers?
