Michael Robinson to Cameo in CBS Soap Opera

Former Nittany Lion football players have found themselves in a myriad of fields upon leaving Happy Valley: the NFL, law and business sectors, even academia. But on a soap opera? That’s a new one.

Former Penn State quarterback and current fullback for the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks Michael Robinson will do just that when he makes a guest appearance on CBS Daytime’s “The Young and the Restless.”

Robinson’s cameo, which was shot in mid-February, will air on March 13 at 12:30 p.m.

Robinson is used to playing with the best, and his cameo will be no different. During his scene, he’ll appear with star Eric Braeden, who won a 1998 Daytime Emmy for Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his work in “The Young and the Restless”.

“It was an amazing experience,” Robinson told CBSSports. “I’ve been a fan for years and it was great to meet the personalities on the show. I’ve always thought Y&R was the best show on daytime television because their story lines are always entertaining and intriguing. They welcomed me with open arms and I felt like a part of the Y&R family.”

Who knew that Robinson was such a big soap opera fan?
