This is going to be so good…and with new writer Susan Banks on board, I think things might turn around a bit for this show.

Love this actor, especially on GH and as another famous Susan Banks would say, he’s a bad,bad,bad man!

A great actor. Excelled on both DH and GH.

The character assassination of Paul Hornsby was second only to that of Rick Webber’s in GH history. Neither was the ultimate bad guy they twisted them into at their respective demises.

You are absolutely right about both Paul and Rick. It’s great to see Richard again, I hope the Y&R writers do him justice, he was amazing on GH and is a fantastic actor. I always found myself cheering for him.

Richard is 62 years old, and one hot daddy. Welcome back to Daytime sexy daddy.

yup– I’m going to like the Burgi man..
((ahaa the Burgi man- get it? ahaa!))
I’m sure I will be cheering him to kick some Newman arse!
And– no way is the child Kyles, nope.
He is in no way ready to be a daddy, he will be kept single
and childless for some time to come..
The overly brain-dead Abby baby story wreaks of stupid.
nuff of that baby stuff..

Finally some good news on the y n r front!
A good looking mature actor! Hopefully he can makes move on Newman and Jabot since both empires are missing that mature adult vibe. With only Summer, Kyle and Victoria holding down these positions it really lacks the bustle of times gone by when those floors were flooded with all the usual characters, Jill, Brad, Neil, Ryan , Ash, John, Jack etc…sigh
Also add a promising new writer Susan banks and I
hope to read Josh Griffith fired soon! Fingers crossed.

Fantastic casting grab! Looking forward to Y&R improving with these new additions. And please find a strong and sexy 60 year old for Jack! I continue to wish for Beth Chamberlain, but she lives on the East Coast.

This is exciting news. Locke will eat Kyle for breakfast and Jack for lunch.

Too bad he’s married. He’d be a good catch for Victoria and then she could stop running after Billy. I don’t think he’s too old, compared to the sixties Jack with the thirty yr. old Sally. Gee, good thing Kyle doesn’t take after his dad, he’d be chasing Faith.

He was so good on GH! Great to see him coming to Y&R. I hope he shakes up both the Newmans and the Abbotts. Put “Vyle” in his place and wipe that smirk off his face!

Want the character to hook up with Nicki. She needs some new loving.

Love Richard Burgi, he’s an excellent actor and he’s extremely handsome. He’s the perfect person to go up against Victor Newman, fearlessly. I hope he stays on Y & R permanently. His character is the perfect “kick” the soap needed to add great spice and variety and intelligence.
