Thanks to a blazing hot end-of-summer day, it's a little stuffy in The Neighborhood's production office in Studio City, California. Yet when the sophomore sitcom's two main stars, Cedric the Entertainer and Max Greenfield, arrive for a chat just ahead of a cast table read, the room suddenly exudes cool. Greenfield, snazzy in what Instagrammers might call "athleisure wear" (off-white casual-chic pants and shirt to match), shows the engaging charms—but not the puppy-dog neediness—of his character Dave Johnson, a small-town Midwesterner starting a new life with his family in a mostly black section of L.A. And the man born Cedric Antonio Kyles, stand-up comedy legend or not, carries himself with enough humility—and his own casual élan—to be dubbed Cedric the Walking Chill Pill. (His guarded Neighborhood alter ego, the Dave-resistant Calvin Butler, might take some cues!)

Actor Richard Burgi has had quite the career since he got his start on Another World in the late '80s, landed recurring roles on former sudsers such as One Life to Life and CBS' As the World Turns, and then caused trouble on Days of Our Lives.

Whether you recognize him from his early soap days, his run as a Desperate Housewives hubby, his years solving crime as The Sentinel or his many other primetime stints, you know that this handsome actor can bring the charm… and also play deliciously dirty!

From the way fierce and possibly dangerous businessman has been described, those talents should come in handy when Ashland arrives in Genoa City on March 11!

Watch spoke to Richard Burgi about his new character, his new co-stars, and what he likes to get into when he's not bringing the drama.

During a video call with Folake Olowofoyeku —the Nigerian American star of the hit comedy Bob ❤️ Abishola—something subtle but unmistakable occurs. Although it's two days before her birthday, a cloud drifts over her face, blocking her smile—a gap-toothed wonder of an event that can take her from serious to incandescent in a heartbeat.

Four days earlier, protests against police brutality in Nigeria (hashtagged #EndSARS for the police force's rogue Special Anti-Robbery Squad) turned deadly, with soldiers firing on peaceful protesters at a well-known toll gate in Lagos. Although Olowofoyeku just marked her 17th year in the U.S., the news of the Lekki Toll Gate Massacre was more than distressing. And a flat-footed question about her childhood led to an impassioned tutorial in contemporary Nigerian politics. Her parents would be proud.
