Phyllis, watch your ass! TV Guide Magazine has learned that popular character actor Aaron Lustig is headed back to CBS' The Young and the Restless where he stirred up quite a fuss — and won a Daytime Emmy nomination — back in the '90s as nebbishy psychiatrist Dr. Tim Reid.
Lustig starts shooting Y&R Wednesday and hits the air May 30. So far, the run is six episodes. More to come? Let's hope! Lustig became quite a fan fave when Dr. Tim served as a court-appointed marriage counselor to nutjob Phyllis Summers (Michelle Stafford) and ended up in the sack with her. Phyllis made a secret videotape of their sex session, natch, and blackmailed the doc into testifying on her behalf in court. He did, but then later 'fessed up to what he'd done and lost his career.
Why's he back? Y&R will reopen that cold-case plot where Phyllis tried to kill Cricket (Lauralee Bell) in a hit-and-run and Ricky (Peter Porte) will seek out Dr. Reid during his investigation of Phyllis' sordid past. Lustig, who appears in the new Jason Segel-Emily Blunt rom com The Five Year Engagement, was last seen on Y&R in 1997. He also played the same character on The Bold and the Beautiful in 2002.
