It looks like Genoa City is going to see some star power this week. In fact, new The Young and the Restless spoilers tease that former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Drew Pearson will be on the show! He will be keeping a good eye on Victor, as he plays his new security guard Drew.
According to the former NFL star, he makes it no secret that he was always a fan of daytime television and in particular, The Young and the Restless. And it’s not because of the scandalous drama and intertwined love lives between the characters. Instead, it was because of all the action between the strongest business leaders and the most influential characters on the show.
The NFL legend recently told CBS Soaps in Depth, “The main guy I wanted to meet was Eric Braeden. He’s the reason I watched the show in the first place. I was a rookie in ’73, when the show first started. We’d have practice meetings from 10 to 11:30 and then a lunch break to 1 or 1:30. I would go home, eat lunch and watch The Young and the Restless.”
Pearson also added that he loves the rivalries in the soap. He explained, “Victor would go after Jack, and Jack would go after Victor! I became very interested because of that, and because of Victor’s style, his ruthlessness.”
