Two more guest stars have been announced for THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS’ upcoming trip to Hollywood! The soap has announced that David Faustino is returning as Howard, and Alec Mapa will be playing Anthony!
Back in September of 2016, Faustino made his daytime debut on Y&R as Howard Green, the sleazy producer of GG Buzz. He was ousted when Devon bought the salacious newsmagazine show and tried to turn it into a more legitimate news outlet. Look for Howard to reconnect with Mishael Morgan’s Hilary when she makes her trip to Los Angeles when Faustino appears in the episodes airing on Wednesday, May 17, and Thursday, May 18. TV audiences will best remember Faustino from his long-running role as Bud Bundy on MARRIED WITH CHILDREN.

Mapa will be in the episode airing Tuesday, May 16, as Anthony, a hotel clerk whose customer service skills are put to the test by a pushy guest visiting from Genoa City. However, we are told that this guest is not Hilary, but one of the other Genoa City denizens who obviously knows what they want and won’t rest until they get it. Mapa is an actor an comedian who has appeared on numerous television series like SCREAM QUEENS, TWO BROKE GIRLS, and DEVIOUS MAIDS as well as his popular Showtime comedy special, Alec Mapa: Baby Daddy.
This news comes on the heels of the soap’s announcement that Julie Chen will be playing herself in an episode slated to air that week when Hilary travels to Los Angeles looking to book the talk show host for her show. Could there be more special guest stars making appearances during this special run of episodes? Stay tuned to find out!
