A blast from the past is returning to daytime and this good be juicy! Aaron Lustig who played sad-sack psychiatrist Dr. Tim Reid is taping new episodes at Y&R starting today!
Lustig won a Daytime Emmy nomination for his comedic, yet evil turn back in the 90′s! So why bring Dr. Tim back to the fold? As previously reported, Y&R will reopen that cold-case plot where Phyllis tried to run down, Cricket (Lauralee Bell) but now according to TV Guide, Ricky (Peter Porte) will seek out Dr. Reid during his investigation of Phyllis’ twisted history in Genoa City. This clearly spells t-r-0-u-b-l-e for Phyllis and gives some meaty story to Daytime Emmy winner, Michelle Stafford (Phyllis).
TV Guide also reveals and sets-up, “Lustig will re-emerge on air on May 30. So far, his run is for six episodes. Lustig became quite a fan fave when Dr. Tim served as a court-appointed marriage counselor to nutjob Phyllis Summers and ended up in the sack with her. Phyllis made a secret videotape of their sex session, natch, and blackmailed the doc into testifying on her behalf in court. He did, but then later ‘fessed up to what he’d done and lost his career.”
So are you excited to see Aaron and Michelle lock horns as Dr. Tim and Phyllis? Let us know!
