Ever Restless -Whatever Screen

Braden_eric “I just had a shootout with Billy Zane and Armand Assante –“. It was Eric Braeden, AKA Victor Newman for 27 years on the “Young And The Restless.”  He was on the longhorn from woods and swamps near Conroe, Texas where his feature, “The Man Who Came Back” was filming.

He’s taking a leave from the soap to exec produce the bigscreener — and is taking no salary to help defray the cost of the 28-day skedded film for Gudegast/Braeden Prods. Steve Bowen, Chuck Walker and Sam Cable are producers.

The cast also includes Sean Young, George Kenney, Peter Jason and Ken Norton, as “grandpa,” an ex-slave. The film’s set in the Reconstruction period and he plays a former plantation overseer in the “brutal revenge story.” Braeden says the film ilustrates “What evil men will do when good men do evil.”

Braeden is most proud of the news he’ll receive a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame, July 20. He arrived in the U.S. (from Germany) at the age of 18 with $50 in his pocket. Earlier this month he was awarded the Ellis Island Medal of Honor. On his return to “Y&R” Braeden believes his “son” will have been found (cast) — age 21-22.
