Since Phyllis (Michelle Stafford) has made her transition to the state prison, fans have had the pleasure of watching some all-time favorite guest stars appear on
The Young and the Restless and have posted asking, “Where have I seen them before?”

Well, fans, I’m about to help put your questions to rest!

Some may remember Richard Riehle, who has appeared as the stern Genoa City warden, from his primetime roles on The Golden Girls, Roseanne, Murder She Wrote, Home Improvement, and Married to The Kelly’s, to name a few. He’s also grazed the big screen in movies including, Mighty Joe Young, Duce Bigalow: Male Gigolo, City of Angels and most recently Choose Conner. Although he’ll only be appearing on Y&R for a few more episodes, fans can look forward to a ton of his movies coming out in 2008!

And what about Carlease Burke, the feisty take-no-bull prison guard who took her sweet time when processing Phyllis last week? Although this appears to be her first daytime role, Carlease is no stranger to primetime, appearing in shows such as What About Brian, How I Met Your Mother, Desperate Housewives, Without A Trace and Monk, to only name a few from her long list of acting credits!
