On-Air On-Soaps was in touch with a rep from CBS and The Young and the Restless this morning, and we can report that Hartley Sawyer will finish up his role of Kyle Abbott tomorrow, December 17th at the sound stages of the number one soap opera at CBS.

Fans of the series will see Sawyer last appear on-screen in the upcoming January 27th episode.   There is still no word as to whether the show plans to recast the role, or not.

As we previously reported, Sawyer took over the role of Kyle back in March 0f 2013, after replacing Blake Hood in the role of the son of Jack Abbott and Diane Jenkins!

Still the jury has been out among fans which of the two adult Kyle’s they liked better, and if they would like to see a recast of the role, and if so, who should Y&R bring in!  We will keep you posted on any more details emerge on the role!

I thought Blake Hood was great. He portrayed the grown-up, Ivy League, silver-spoon Kyle well. I liked his chemistry with Hunter King (Summer) better too. When the news finally comes out that Summer is not really Jack’s daughter, they will be free to re-kindle their romance. Also, this has nothing to do with anything but just an observation . . . Blake Hood could easily be Adam Newman’s brother or son. I think they look very much alike. Happy Holidays to you Michael Fairman!!

Blake Hood was great other than that unfortunate resemblance to Michael Muhney.

I personally think they aged Kyle to old. Kyle should have been aged to a teenager; instead of someone in their early twenties. Kyle could have been a part of the teen storyline with Fen and Summer in High school when the bullying storyline was going on. I wish Hartley well in future roles.

I liked both of them. When any new actor comes aboard it takes me a little while to get use to them in the role, but then I do. Blake seemed to be younger and may have fit better with Summer, but when it came down to being part of the business I think Hartley fit the part better. I was looking forward to seeing Hartley Sawyer as the mole in Victor’s company. Anything to finally let Jack win over Victor. Best of luck to you Hartley.

Hartley Sawyer, the best for you..
Hope you find work !!

It’s always sad for the actor when he loses his job and perhaps a dream..
Hope to see him in a show, soon 🙂

YES! This is fantastic news! Hartley Sawyer was a terrible recast, one which I never understood, because Blake Hood was so much better. Thank god he’s leaving, I couldn’t stand him; aside from the fact that he didn’t suit the role at all, he was always really creepy looking. As far as a recast goes, I wouldn’t mind seeing Blake Hood return to the role, but maybe consider Tom Pelphrey from ATWT? I think he’d be good for the role. Honestly though, three adult actors playing Kyle in under two years… maybe they should just give the role a rest… Read more »

Wishing Sawyer the very best; it was tough for me to get on board with him initially, but he really grew on me and showed some terrific acting chops; holding his own with Braeden, Bergman and Stafford. He has a very bright future!

Bring back Blake Hood. I never understood why they fired him. Y&R has been making some very bad casting decisions.

Really liked Hartley as a business guy, a suit, far more convincing than the guy who plays Noah ( sorry never could get into R Adamson, poor casting).
Hartley wasn’t given a fair chance, the writing wasn’t stellar.
Good luck to him! He’s a great actor with stage presence!

Corbin Bernsen to Reprise His Role of Arnie Becker in ‘LA Law’ Revival Pilot

Corbin Bernsen (Father Todd, The Young and the Restless) and the son of Y&R’s late great Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor) has signed on to reprise his signature primetime television role of womanizing lawyer Arnie Becker in the upcoming LA Law revival pilot.

This makes Corbin the co-lead of the series alongside Blair Underwood (Ex-OLTL) who previously signed on to the pilot to reprise his role of Jonathan Rollins.  ABC has greenlit the pilot.

According to Deadline, it is believed that Bernsen and Underwood will be the only original members of the mid 80’s-90’s legal drama on NBC in the pilot, but more may guest-star if the show gets picked up for a full-season order.

In the premise of the reboot, the law firm of McKenzie Brackman, now named Becker Rollins, reinvents itself as a litigation firm specializing in only the most high profile, boundary pushing and incendiary cases.  The show will feature familiar characters working alongside new ones on the most hot button issues of the day.  As for Bernsen’s Becker, now in his 60’s, look for him to struggle with a rapidly shifting sexual and political landscape.

The original LA Law ran for eight seasons from September 15, 1986 to May 19, 1994 on NBC.

So, what do you think of Corbin taking on the role of Arnie Becket in a revival of LA Law? Would you be intrigued to check out the show if it makes it to series? Comment below.

Justin Hartley Voices ‘Superman’ In New Animated Feature ‘Injustice’

Here’s yet another role that Justin Hartley was born to play, but this time he’s doing it with a twist! Hartley is playing the man of steel, Superman, in the new animated feature from DC Comic and Warner Brothers titled Injustice.

However, being that it’s animated, fans can hear Justin’s voice as Superman.  This is the third superhero role in Hartley’s career having played Green Arrow on Smallville and then Aquaman for a proposed series from the same team.  Of course, soap fans love him for his roles on Passions (Fox Crane) and The Young and the Restless (Adam Newman), while primetime audiences continue to love his portrayal of Kevin Pearson on This Is Us.

In this new animated featured inspired by the popular video game, things go very wrong for Superman, when The Joker tricks him into murdering Lois Lane!

Justin spoke to TV Insider about taking on the legendary super hero via voice-over and shared what was the appeal for him to do. Hartley expressed: “I loved the arc of the character. I love the way it started and how you get behind him. You go, ‘This is very cool to see him at home and nesting and having a good time.’ And then all hell breaks out and I loved the idea that they wrote this guy flawed and this idea of Superman not having all of the answers… and sometimes, the answers that he has are outrageous. That’s a fun character to play.”

Injustice is out tomorrow on October 19th on 4K, Ultra-HD Blu-ray Combo Pack,Blu-ray, and Digital.  Check out a trailer for it below.

So what do you think of Justin as Superman? Comment below.
