Soap opera actor, popular for his role in 'The Young and the Restless,' Jerry Douglas, has died.
According to his family, the 88-year-old died on Tuesday after a brief illness.
TMZ reports that JD, as he is fondly called, logged nearly 900 episodes on 'Young & Restless' dating back decades.
He was the third actor to play John Abbott, presiding over the Abbott Mansion and Jabot Cosmetics for 25 years until the fan-favorite character was killed in 2006.
He appeared in tons of other big TV shows over the years, including "Cold Case," "Melrose Place," "Arrested Development," "Mission: Impossible," "The Incredible Hulk" and "The F.B.I." amongst others.
He also acted in theater productions and sang.
Douglas recently celebrated his birthday early with a bunch of his former castmates from 'Young & Restless.'
He is survived by his wife of 36 years, Kym Douglas, his sons, Jod and Hunter, and his daughter, Avra.
