Soaps.com is pleased to share that Chris Engen is the lucky actor named to play the role of Victor Newman’s (Eric Braeden) son, Victor JR. on The Young and the Restless! Victor Jr. is the son of Victor and Hope Adams Wilson (last played by Beth Toussaint), and as per the show’s story line, had gone missing. Victor went looking for him back when Nick was presumed dead in the plane crash, but it was never revealed whether he was able to locate him or not.
