The stars keep aligning in Genoa City! TV Guide Magazine has learned that Tony award and two-time Emmy winner Ken Howard will appear on CBS' The Young and the Restless as George, the long-estranged dad of battling sibs Phyllis (Michelle Stafford) and Avery (Jessica Collins). 

As of now, Howard is set for four episodes. He starts shooting at the number one sudser on January 19 and will hit the air February 23. 

Howard was the star of the beloved '70s series The White Shadow and has appeared in a wide range of films from 1776 (he'll always be Thomas Jefferson to us!) and Rambo to Michael Clayton and HBO's Grey Gardens.  It's a sure bet the stars of Y&R will be on their best behavior when Howard's on the set — he's also president of the Screen Actors Guild!
