Y&R Casting News: John Driscoll is Phillip Chancellor IV

John Driscoll (ex-Coop Bradshaw, Guiding Light) has been cast as Phillip Chancellor IV, the son of the "late" Phillip Chancellor III and Nina Webster on The Young and the Restless.

While Tricia Cast (Nina) has returned for a short-term role, and Thom Bierdz returned on Friday, (as a man named Langley, but we have our suspicions), this is a much-welcomed move for fans of the Chancellors.

According to "Driscoll reportedly auditioned opposite Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe Mitchell), hinting that there could be some couple shakeups in the near future. Driscoll's alter ego will also share scenes with Adrienne Frantz (Amber Moore) and Christel Khalil (Lily Winters)."

Personally, I am excited to see a story-line shift to the Chancellors. Hopefully that will mean less time devoted to the snoozefest that I find all this Nick/Sharon drama to be.
