Soap veteran Mark Pinter, who does slimy bad guy so good that you want to throw something at the TV set, has landed another plum daytime role! And, once again it is centered on the political arena something Pinter is used to playing! Another World fans remember Pinter as Senator-turned-Mayor Grant Harrison, and now Pinter is set to take on the role of a brand new political powerhouse, but this time in Genoa City!
According to TV Guide, Pinter will play Marcus Wheeler on the number one soap, The Young and the Restless. Marcus is said to be “a powerful and sophisticated congressman involved with Victor (Eric Braeden) and Jack (Peter Bergman), who will go to any lengths to protect his image and career.” What could he have done that he needs to protect his image? Sex scandal, and if so, with who?
Pinter starts shooting on the set of The Young and the Restless tomorrow, Thursday December 6th. Be on the lookout for Pinter’s debut as Marcus on January 10th! From the report from TVG, it looks as though Pinter will be sticking around at least through February Sweeps!
