Y&R casting a new Williams family member
Posted Friday, November 01, 2013 3:00:47 AM
The Young and the Restless has released another casting notice. The CBS soap is now looking to cast the role of Josh Williams, presumably one of Paul's relatives.
In September, The Young and the Restless issued a casting call for a heretofore-unknown member of the Abbott family named Andrew. Now, the top-rated CBS soap is apparently adding a branch to another Genoa City family tree.

In its latest casting call, Y&R is looking to cast a "handsome, successful and very sexy" male in his "mid to late 30s" for the role of Josh Williams. While Williams may be a common surname, soaps rarely -- if ever -- have unrelated characters with the same last name. So, it stands to reason that Paul Williams could very well be getting a relative in the near future.

According to Paul's Who's Who in Genoa City character profile (accessible under the "About Y&R" option from the navigation menu at the top of any page of the site), Paul has three siblings -- Father Todd Williams, Steven Williams, and Patty Williams. Could the new character be a nephew?

There isn't much known in the way of future story for Josh, but the casting call did offer a nugget that could foreshadow an epic showdown. Josh is described as a "smart businessman who can out-maneuver even the shrewdest."

A first airdate has not yet been announced.
