Guess who’s coming to Genoa City? Heartthrob Shemar Moore will be visiting his roots this fall when he reprises his role as Malcolm Winters on the CBS soap opera “The Young and the Restless.” The network made the announcement on Wednesday but added that Winter’s homecoming will last only two episodes which will air on Wednesday, Sept. 10 and Thursday, Sept. 11. This is will undoubtedly be a huge ratings winner.
The 44-year-old Oakland, Calif., native originated the role of Malcolm Winters in 1994 and remained on the soap until 2002. From 1999 to 2003, Moore played host to televisions long running dance show “Soul Train.” Actor Darius McCrary was recast in the role of Malcom Winter in 2009 until his departure in 2011.
Moore’s character, a smooth talking ladies’ man, is Neil Winter’s (longtime cast mate Kristoff St. John) half-brother. In 2000, Moore won a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor. According to CSB, when Malcom returns to Genoa City it will be to visit family, to catch up on what has been going on and to explain his abrupt departure a few years ago.
Currently, Moore plays FBI agent Derek Moore on the CBS crime drama “Criminal Minds.” He has been with the show since 2005. Moore is devoted to raising funds for multiple sclerosis. In 1998, the actor’s mother was diagnosed with the disease.
