Michael Gross finds family ties in The Young and the Restless

Michael GrossThe addition of Hogan Sheffer to the headwriting duties on The Young and the Restless is already making waves. In quick order, David and Sabrina have been killed off to make way for new characters. With new characters comes news of a major former prime time star joining the cast.

TV Guide's Michael Logan reports that Michael Gross will be playing River Baldwin, Michael's father, the one whom he thinks is a low-life, reprobate. A guy who refused to go to Vietnam and left Gloria to raise their son alone.

Best known as Steven Keaton on NBC's Emmy-winning sitcom Family Ties (1982-89), Michael is sure to bring instant credibility to the role. For one thing, we're going to find out that River is not at all what we've been told he is. In fact, I'm betting that River will be a politically charged character, a man who objected to the war and chose not to fight because he didn't believe it was a just cause.

Watch for Michael Baldwin to discover all kinds of things about himself and the kind of man he is because he shares the genes of a man he's never known.

Michael Gross will begin appearing on August 15.

Welcome Michael! I've watched nearly everything he's done. A very good actor, convincing. He's the type of guy you would believe anything he said, whether he was portraying a nice or evil person. But he's seemed to be sad under all that - felt the sadness around season 2 of Family Ties and it's always been there since; I could be wrong but that's what I felt. I watched Y&R twice when it first came out - I believe I'll actually tune in Aug 15, just to see Michael spin his magic.
