Eric Roberts to Y&RAnother big film and television star hits the tape deck on a soap opera. 

Eric Roberts has been tapped to grace the denizens of Genoa City with his presence when he takes on the role of Adam's (Michael Muhney) attorney this July on the Young and the Restless. Just how he will impact Adam's situation and the lives of everyone else in town remains to be seen, but just having Roberts on board is sure to stirr things up.

Real soap aficionados will remember Roberts as the first Ted Bancroft on Another World in 1977. From his soap beginnings Roberts has appeared in countless feature films, The Dark Knight, and the upcoming Expendables to name a few, and a myriad of prime time television from sitcoms (Almost Perfect, The King of Queens, Fraizer) to series dramas like Heros and Crash.

As we are sure you know, he is the brother of Julia Roberts, and it looks like they are keeping a love of soap operas in the family as she just happens to be a huge fan of Days of our Lives!

TVGuide Online broke this story Monday, June 21. Roberts first air date on Y&R is July 12, 2010.

Days of our Lives Melissa Archer says Serena is sort of interested in herself

A veteran of daytime television Melissa Archer, who now plays Serena Mason on Days of our Lives, said that playing the role is just another day and it's just going to work.

Archer played Natalie Buchanan on One Life To Live for ten years until the show was cancelled in 2011.  She then switched to the now defunct online version.

"I look at this job as going to work," Archer said. "I love what I do. Serena is so much fun, and she has a lot going for her. She does many things and is sort of interested in herself."
