Another Aussie talent comes to CBS Daytime! Actor Lachlan Buchanan, formerly of the hit Australian soap opera Home and Away, and also from ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars, has been cast as the new Kyle Abbott on the number one daytime drama, The Young and the Restless!  Last year, Australian actress Ashleigh Brewer joined Y&R’s sister soap, The Bold and the Beautiful as Ivy Forrester.  And of course, Y&R also features the talents of down under’s Daniel Goddard (Cane).

Buchanan told Soap Opera Digest that he will be using an American accent when he bows on the series!  Lachlan will begin taping next week on January 27th, and will begin airing on February 25th!

On Twitter this morning with the release of this casting news, Lachlan tweeted:  “So excited to start my new adventure with the brilliant team at the Young and Restless”

Lachlan takes on the key role of the son of Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) which was last played by Blake Hood, and then Hartley Sawyer.

So excited to hear there is a new Kyle on their way to Genoa City?  Looking forward to seeing how Lachlan takes on the role and what happens in story?  Comment below!

I wish him luck, that role has been very difficult to caspt I would love to see Kyle with Mariah just to see the heartburn on Summer”s face, I would feel bad for Kevin.

I hope Kyle want Mariah. Ha ha ha that will drive Summer crazier then her mother. Okay nobody is as crazy as Phyllis but Summer will come close. She always wanted her brother who I believe is her brother. Jack needs to take the test. Sharon has no idea if she changed the test. She was off her medication . Im sure Summer is Jacks! 🙂

Im hoping Summer does turn out to be Jacks. Why didn’t he have his own test. Sharon said she was off her medication. Im sure she dreamed of changing the test but it would be unlikely she would be able to know without a medical background. Summer will end up Jacks Im sure of it

Your right, he was too old and looked like an underwear model and not an actor!

Well, they all look like A&F models anymore. Not that that’s a bad thing (as long as they can act, too). But the last one was, shall we say, a little hard on the eyes.

Well, Jonboy, he could have answered the door for The Adams, er, I mean, The Abbott family. “You rang?” (snap!)

I don’t like Summer the way she treated Sharon. Summer should of blamed Nick and her crazy mother for cheating on Jack and Sharon and the lies Nick told all those 18 yrs

This is an opportunity for a redo on this too quickly SORAS’d character and botched story lines for said character. I am glad to see some beefing up of the core families, especially the Abbotts. We have Jack and Ashley. Ashley’s daughter Abby. Jack’s son Kyle. Tracy still comes around but not near enough. Billy and his daughter Katherine. Things seem good. Can someone remind me if Jack’s Vietnamese son Kemo is still alive? I cannot recall. I will again say — as I have on other posts — I would like to see Dina return even for a short-term… Read more »

Yes, luv. Keemo is still alive…at least, no one has ever said he has died. He just left and no one ever mentioned him again. Cheers! X

Thanks Eden about the Keemo info…like i said im not a regular viewer…usually watch when certain stories or episodes interest me…been that way since the Brookes sisters from the shows early days…few things i recall and it happens to be the one about Keemo…i believe it wasnt a popular storyline, especially with Peter Bergman!!!

I believe Keemo left town with his sister(dont recall her name)…i dont watch often but this part seems familiar to me…

jimh, Keemo’s sister was called Mai (pronounced ‘my’) and their mum was Luan (‘lawn’). Hard to believe it was so long ago! Cheers! X

Hi Iakovos, Yes Kemo is alive but I don’t think the story line went so well so he was said to have left town.

Yes I would love to see Dina Mergeron (the Abbott matriarch) interacting with Joanna Manning (The Fenmore matriarch) and tacky Gloria along with Jill. That foursome would be a hoot written properly. I’d love Dina to challenge Jill for the Chancellor Estate by some fluke.

Heck throw Nikki in there and make up for that awful baking show nonsense by having them be approached to do a reality style The Real Women of Genoa City..that’d be a great comedic storyline for all of them. Especially with scowling Victor eventually banning Nikki and the cameras from Newman Enterprises…LOL..

Keemo not so much. That was just such a weird story. No where near as good as Tom and Margo Hughes lovin’ it up at home and he opens the door to lien..his unknown illegitimate Korean daughter…boy Doug Marland could craft a story…and it gave us the actress Ming Na..who I still enjoy just because she was lien Hughes.

At first glance he looks too young to be Kyle. Maybe he’ll look older on the show.

He looks like lil sweetie pie..
I would expect Kyle to look older and more sophisticated, a businessman type..
He looks too young to be with Jabot, maybe he will skateboard to work lol ..
I wonder what he will do ?

Good to have a recast Kyle back to inject some badly needed excitement into Summer and Austin’s snoozefest of a relationship.

Summer and Austin don’t even have sex LOL ..
No one in Y&R has sex worthy of mention..
Y&R is sexless ..

GH has hot lusty sex heeehaaa! ..
Patrick and Sam were nakid on top of each other and Julian and Alexis melt the camera, so much heat..
Y&R nada … lol

So to even expect that new Kyle will liven up Summer and Austin, not gonna happen .. 🙂

For the Austin character’s sake, he better be getting some off camera. If not, they have pills for that kind of problem!

lol the poor guy..
young ones as them can’t get enough sex, guys i Austins age are very virile and Summer and Austin come off as brother and sister not a young couple..
go figure..

Y&R couples are very bland boring, they just are..
Maybe Pratt will give them working hormones..

Y&R has sex su0000. Why just a few days ago we saw 60 yr old Jack Abbott naked in bed w/a blindfold & roses, and Kelly and Phyllis in lingerie…well, it was almost sex. We wanted to see Jack naked, right? No..lol Billy Miller’s Billy Abbott had sex w/every woman in GC. And we saw all of the love scenes. This fake Billy has had sex a few times, but he’s disgusting. Apparently Paul & Cricket are having sex since they’ve made a baby and Neil keeps bragging about practicing for a baby because it makes sense to drag your… Read more »

Su, you should have your own column: “Sex and Soaps According to su0000″…LOL
I must say, though….you are right….. The thrill is gone from Y&R…but, Julian’s and Olivia’s play date was a lot steamier that A’s and J’s. Later.

Oh YIPPI another Cane!!!I guess only time will tell if he works out so Good luck mate. I don’t know why we couldn’t get Blake Hood who was a great Kyle Abbott a real player like Jack use to be Playboy. Another one that would have been really good but taken Chad Duell who plays Michael Corinthos on General hospital.

Okay am I’m crazy but doesn’t this guy look a little like Summer’s present husband Austin? It some ways if he did, it might explain Summer’s instant attraction to Austin which never made sense, unless now he looked like her lost love Kyle— I’m glad they are casting more in keeping with the original look of Kyle— looking forward to Kyle’s return–

I never understood why they recast Kyle with Hartley Sawyer. I thought Blake Hood did really well in the role, he looked, acted and spoke like a younger version of Jack. It didn’t make sense to me that they chose to recast with such a bland, monotone and creepy looking guy who couldn’t act to save his life. Hartley Sawyer was wildly miscast IMO, if they really wanted to bring him on, he could have played a dark bad-guy kind of role instead. Anyway, I’m happy Kyle is coming back but I kind of hoped Tom Pelphrey would take over… Read more »

Summer already has her finger in everyone’s pie. That girl seems to be attached to every character and every story.
That would be okay if the character was remotely interesting but she’s about as interesting as a margarine sandwich on white bread.

I wish the young man luck. Now onto the casting department. What the HELL were you thinking?

A. No american actors available? No ex cancelled soap stars available?

B. So Kyle has gotten younger since he has been off the show. What is this “Benjamin Button?”

C. Lastly, He looks NOTHING like Jack Abbot!

I liked Blake Hood a lot. But like Blake, this guy is attractive and looks like an Abbott.

I hope Pratt can tell a good next generation story featuring Kyle and Noah. Both SHOULD be front and center where the young set is concerned.

We’ll see if he can act!

Eileen Davidson, Vince Van Patten & Caitlyn Jenner In Cast Of New Sitcom ‘Duke of the Valley’

A fictional apartment building featuring a set of very eccentric tenants in the San Fernando Valley of Southern California is the backdrop for a new indie comedy sitcom based on the memoirs of the late Dick Van Patten, best known for his role on the ABC series, Eight is Enough.

The show entitled, Duke of the Valley is co-created by Dick’s son, Vince Van Patten and his grandson, Duke Van Patten, who also wrote the series together. In addition, Vince is also directing and one of the producers of the series.

According to The Wrap, Caitlyn Jenner will star as Heather a transgender “white trash” woman who sells perfume at the counter of Macy’s.  Others in the cast include: Vince Van Patten’s wife and two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Eileen Davidson (Ashley, Y&R and Ex- DAYS and RHOBH), who plays Brenda, a washed-up actress who can’t accept that her career in showbiz is over.

Vince Van Patten takes on the role of a homeless killer named Skipy, who demands to camp outside the apartment building.  Meanwhile, Duke Van Patten plays himself as an actor in Hollywood living in a dingy apartment building in the San Fernando Valley that happens to be owned by his ‘crazy uncle Jimmy”, played by none other than James Van Patten.

Duke of the Valley is currently in production, but without a network or streaming service attached to it yet.  Thus, no release date has been set as this time either.

So, what do you think of the premise of Duke of the Valley featuring Caitlyn, Eileen and Vincent? Comment below!
