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 for a little while before bringing in another actor…

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!

Nathan Fillion Talks His Start On OLTL On ‘The View’ With Whoopi Goldberg

On Thursday’s episode of ABC’s The View, Nathan Fillion visited the show promoting his series, The Rookie.  But during the beginning of his conversation with Whoopi Goldberg, he talked about what he learned from his humble beginnings in show business as Joey Buchanan on the beloved One Life to Live.

Of course, OLTL fans recall that Nathan was involved in a romantic storyline with Llanview icon, Robin Strasser (Dorian) and played the on-screen son to another icon, Erika Slezak (Viki).

Fillion shared about this time on One Life: “Everything I did and everything I do I learned on that show.  I never speak poorly on daytime … it was such a warm kind place to be.   I learned everything there.  I don’t know where an actor can go and work with people that have worked in the business for 25, 35, 40 years, and I had no idea what i’m doing …and they said, ‘no problem here is what you do’.  So, it was very good people.”

Goldberg also alluded to that she “missed the soaps” meaning All My Children and One Life to Live that shot right where they are in New York City at the ABC studios on 66th and 67th street.

Watch Nathan talk his early career and more with the ladies of The View below.  Then, let us know what you think about the sentiments he share from his time at One Life to Live via the comment section.

Y&R’s Thad Luckinbill To Produce ‘Postscript’ The Film Adaptation of Sequel To “P.S. I Love You”

We all know that Thad Luckinbill (Ex-J.T Hellstrom, The Young and the Restless) wears many hats in the entertainment industry.  He acts, he writes, he produces, he sings … is there anything that this talented guy doesn’t do?

Now comes word that Luckinbill’s production company (with his brother Trent and Molly Smith), Black Label Media, in conjunction with Alcon Entertainment, has secured the rights to the the novel Postscript and will turn it into a motion picture.

Postscript is the recently released sequel to Cecelia Ahern’s 2004 debut novel, P.S. I Love You.  The original movie starred two-time Oscar winner, Hilary Swank as Holly who loses her husband tragically when he dies from a brain tumor.  Then, a grieving Holly discovers that her husband has left behind 10 letters designed to help Holly overcome her sorrow and transition to a new life.

According to Deadline, who broke the news of this film deal: In, Postscript (which hit book stores this week in the U.S.) the story picks up Holly seven years after her husband’s death with Holly having peacefully moved on with her life.  However, when Holly’s sister asks her to tell the story of the “PS, I Love You” letters on her podcast — she does so reluctantly, not wanting to reopen old wounds. Soon after the episode airs, people start reaching out to Holly, and they all have one thing in common: they’re terminally ill and want to leave their own missives behind for loved ones.”
