1008 Kevin G. Schmidt, actor, "The Young and The Restless"
I have steadfastly avoided inviting soap stars to be my guests on Mr. Media Radio for a simple reason: I don’t watch soaps. Oh, I did for a year or two in the late ‘80s when my new wife was hooked on All My Children and she recorded the show daily for playback after work. But I was a newlywed then—I had an excuse. So what is Kevin G. Schmidt, who plays Noah Newman on The Young and The Restless, doing here today? KEVIN G. SCHMIDT podcast excerpt: "There’s a lot of ‘restless’ on our show, but not a lot of ‘young.’... I think what’s happening now, it’s a transition...

He’s also got a part in Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel, due out in December 2009. I’m a lifetime Alvin fan, so that was pretty cool to me. He also stars as Justin in an online TV series, Poor Paul, which you can catch on YouTube or at . Kevin G. Schmidt • • • • •
