The Young And The Restless Spoilers – Alum Jason Canela Lands New Gig

According to the latest edition of Soap Opera Digest, Jason has landed a role in the drama, The Rookie. He plays a character by the name of Cesar Madrigal, who is looking to become the new head of a family crime syndicate. And according to Jason, he is super excited for his fans to see him in this role.

The handsome Miami native told the publication in a new interview, “Cesar is ready to take over what his father invested his whole life into and Cesar’s not going to allow anyone to get in his way – or so he thinks. It’s so cool to get to play this time of character, considering there’s such a drastic difference between him and me.”

Jason recalled, “I really admitted the writing and truly felt that the show was something special. However, like any actor who has experienced that call where they inform you that the network decided to go in a different direction, I felt pretty bummed but I didn’t stop working toward the goal that I had already set out to achieve. I continued to put in the work and tackled every audition thrown my way with everything I had to offer.”

Now, whether or not Jason will ever come back to Y&R remains to be seen. But for now, fans can’t wait to see him in his new role!
