Actor Christian Keyes has been wreaking havoc in Genoa City as The Young and the Restless' Ripley, a new character who accidentally stabbed Victoria (Amelia Heinle) while on a jealous rampage trying to harm his ex, Amanda (Mishael Morgan). But fans who are hungry for different, possibly less nefarious material from the talented actor will be happy to hear that he's been cast in a new NBC pilot.
Titled At That Age, the ensemble drama is an exploration of an African-American family's legacy. As reported by Deadline, "after the Cooper family's golden child suffers a catastrophic event, seven family members face a foundational shift, make life-altering decisions and deal with deep secrets coming to light."
Keyes will be playing the series regular role of Jabari Patterson, who is described simply as the "younger brother." Emayatzy Corinealdi will also star in the role of Victoria Cooper-Hargrove, an attorney who is the poised and overachieving middle child of the family. Additional casting details will likely come in the near future.
Carla Banks-Waddles is the writer and executive producer on the At That Age pilot, while Malcolm D. Lee will executive produce under his Blackmaled Productions banner, with Debra Martin Chase also executive producing.
Keyes made his soap opera debut as Y&R's Ripley in February 2020. He previously appeared as a regular on the series Saints and Sinners and In Contempt, and had recurring roles on series like Legends of Tomorrow, 9-1-1, and Supernatural.
