Unlike last year when questions about his future abounded, Michael Graziadei (Daniel Romalotti) has quickly put to rest the "will he or won't he?" speculation. The actor has signed a new contract with The Young and the Restless.
At the end of 2008, show insiders were adamant that Graziadei would be leaving the top-rated CBS soap. The actor had a host of other projects brewing, including a role in the indie movie The Outside and numerous guest spots in primetime. Despite the sources' claims, Graziadei inked a contract and stayed put in Genoa City.
The terms of Graziadei's new contract were not released, but sources tell soapcentral.com that Graziadei signed another one-year contract.
Graziadei joined The Young and the Restless in May 2004. In 2005 and 2006, the actor received Daytime Emmy nominations for Outstanding Younger Actor.
