William Russ Joins Y&R
Though the show won't confirm, William Russ, best known for playing the dad, Alan, on BOY MEETS WORLD, is joining Y&R as billionaire Tucker, the role that the show began to cast during Eric Braeden's (Victor) contract negotiations. This won't be Russ's first time on a soap; he played ANOTHER WORLD's Burt in 1978.
