Fan favorite Kin Shriner is stepping back into daytime, temporarily! It seems there has been a sudden casting change at The Young and the Restless. Ted Shackelford who has been playing the antics of Jeffrey Bardwell will be briefly replaced by Shriner!  The former star of General Hospital and Port Charles, is set to play Jeffrey B. for three episodes.

A Y&R spokesperson released this statement, “Kin Shriner is temporarily stepping in on Y&R as Jeff Bardwell because Ted Shackelford is not available. Kin’s episodes will begin airing in late April.”

So do you think Shriner will be a good temp recast as Bardwell? Let us know!

    Kin Shriner should be a good temporary replacement! Y&R hasn’t really done a whole lot with Ted lately,seems like they did when he first joined the show as William!

    I guess we should close our eyes to the roughly 15 year age difference between the two. Its not quite as bad as Joan Crawford subing for her daughter on Secret Storm.


  4. Karen says:

    I like Ted playing Jeffrey. No one can be as devious and slimey as he can in the part. How long will he be gone? I saw today’s episode and was rather disappointed at the role change.


  5. Lisa says:

    I like Kin Shriner more!!


  6. Txgirl says:

    No one will ever replace Ted as Jeffery Bardwell!! That role was made for him and he is great in it!!!!! Hope he comes back soon…..


  7. Jackie Vollrath says:
