Highlight Hollywood’s Leading Men Gold Standard Are Andrew Lincoln And Joshua Morrow, Solid Performers Dealing With High Drama

This week’s Leading Man Gold Standard goes to a primetime actor and a superstar in daytime television.   These two men had high-drama in their storylines, and they both are the epitome of great actors in Hollywood.  Andrew Lincoln, who portrays Rick Grimes in the hit AMC series, “The Walking Dead” is playing it on a tight-rope emotionally.  Rick is losing control of reality, and the losses he has faced are leading him to a showdown on Sunday night.  While Joshua Morrow, who portrays Nick Newman on the CBS drama “The Young and the Restless” is finding out that he may have to fight for the woman he loves.  And Joshua is prepared for the intense drama, so will Nick be as well?
Andrew Lincoln’s Rick has lost his wife, Laurie, he’s faced off with the Governor’s Team Woodbury, and on Sunday night, he goes after Daryl, while also AndrewLincoln-Goldstill having delusions of seeing his dead wife, and his son and another surprising character at Team Prison will both encourage Rick to step down.  Lincoln is one of the best actors on television, and the high drama of AMC’s “The Walking Dead” calls for quick action and an actor who can turn on a dime from scene-to-scene. The handsome British actor always seem stable in the role, that is growing increasingly unstable.  From anger, to shock, to confusion, last Sunday night on “Suicide King,” Rick seemed like he was about to lose control of his mind, and yet the actor seemed utterly prepared to take control every moment.
Sunday night will be spectacular, and so will Andrew Lincoln.  “The Walking Dead” airs at 9 p.m. on Sunday night only on AMC.

Nick fights for what he wants, and right now, he believes Avery is the woman for him.   Whether it works out or not, doesn’t really matter.  What does matter is seeing handsome Joshua Morrow in such a fun storyline, and this one many viewers can’t wait to see where it goes.  Wherever it leads, Morrow is the man in control.   Better and better every day, more handsome every year, and even more talented than any of daytime TV’s actors.  Fans had better watch this one, because it’s going to lead Morrow to an even brighter place.  He is an actor in control, a man on a mission, and viewers will have a great deal to enjoy as Joshua continue in the role.
“The Young and the Restless” airs weekdays on CBS.
