Further details on Coleman's role remain scarce at this time, but viewers shouldn't expect to see Tanner for long, as the role is said to be short-term. That could change, however, if viewers react favorably.
In addition to starring on OLTL from 2006 to 2007, some of Coleman's other credits include The Originals, Vampire Diaries, Boardwalk Empire, In Between Men, and Aquarius.
Y&R viewers can look forward to Coleman's first appearance on Friday, January 3 -- barring any preemptions that might happen between now and then.
