    Good news for Greg and its good he is staying on Y&R. We already lost Harding, we cannot afford to lose Fish to!

    So glad to see this handsome and talented man have an opportunity outside of Genoa City. Rikaart has weathered all the silliness thrown at him and Kevin through the years, and evenin the midst of such, proves watchable and interesting. The Kevin and Mariah scenes are among my favorites on Y&R. A couple made for adventure, humor, and passion!

    Dude…..He’s been Front Line since the day he first appeared on The Y&R Canvas. Keep him busy with a few time off days on Y/R… that he doesn’t burn out

    This double duty will only help the viewer ship for the other show. Major Crimes looks like a great show from the commercials…I’ve not taken the time to get into the series…just saw a little of maybe three shows before Kevin Bacons’ Wife left the show.

    I love television (would love too be an actor on Y&R) and enjoy being entertained by good acting. Major Crimes has that talent…..but…..Mr. Greg Rikaart would only add more unique style and grace.

    I Love Greg Rikaart…..When Y&R revealed that “Kevin Fisher” & “Michael Baldwin” were brothers…..AWESOME.

    I’ve been a fan of The Young & The Restless since Day One. Mr. Rikaart is truly one of the best talents to walk that stage.

    Best Of Luck Greg Rikaart.

    Greg is a great actor. I’m so glad that he has this opportunity to do something different. I know that he’ll do a great job with the guest role.

    It looks like a very good fitting role for him and multi-episode.
    Nice to see CBS is letting the soap cast do other projects on other networks.


  7. bwade says:

    Love the role he plays. Kevin is definitely a smart detective.


  8. Dawn B. says:

    I just hope we don’t wind up loosing him also.. now that hell be doing more work… Y and R doesn’t need to loose anyone else thats good….


  9. Nancy says:

    I think he will do a great job on Major Crimes. Brandon Barash is
    already on and doing a fabulous job. They need to make him a cop
    on Y&R.


    su0000 replied

    hi Nancy..
    nooo I don’t want to see Dylan running shotgun on Kevin..
    After all, Dylan is destined to be the first PTSD instant detective in soap history LOL !
    He’s gonna be king of the GCPD .. lol

    Greg is an awesome actor. Love him on Y&R. He can be serious or comical. I could watch him all day. When he was hiding from Terrible Tom in the closet, his acting was at its best. I totally cried for him. He is just one super guy and one super actor. I adore him and will be watching Major Crimes.


  13. Valerie says:

    Very happy for you Greg..


  14. Michelle Pinkston says:

    Fantastic Actor,Congrats! !!


  15. Gary says:

    I love Greg, he is a wonderful actor. I would love to see Greg in a gay porn movie, LOL. Why not? he is so fine and cute.


  16. Joyce says:

    I live in France and I do not know if I could ever see this series but although it is I’m happy for Greg Rickart which is a great actor. I love the character of Kevin, although at this moment in our french episodes I find it silly with Chloe. I do not like this couple. I loved the couple and if Kevinlena Diana Degarmo could one day return to Y & R would be great to rebuild their relationship, this time with a real shared romance.
