According to Soap Central, James A. Watson, Jr. is just the right man for the job. He’ll be appearing on soap starting March 24th as Judge Murray. There’s no word about how long he will stay, but if all Victor’s (Eric Braeden) crimes come to light, fans could be in for a rather lengthy trial.
Victor is facing a grim fate, and the time of reckoning is upon him. Murray is said to be a no-nonsense law enforcer, so he may be determined to make an example out of the most influential businessman in town. The Newman patriarch better hope that he can blackmail or bribe the newest member of Genoa City, or he could be sitting in the slammer for the rest of his life.
This part isn’t the first time that Watson has taken held an honorable position on a soap. In 1987, he appeared in Dallas to try a case there as well. Watson also has credits for his roles in The Love Boat, Matlock, The District and The Rockford Files television movie franchise.
Could Judge Murray’s arrival in town be the end of Victor’s reign of power? Do you think that Victor will end up in prison for a long time, or will he have a trick up his sleeve to get out of trouble once again?
