Watch out Dylan McAvoy and the other gents on The Young and the Restless!  A new hottie is about to arrive in Genoa City in the form of none other than former Men in Trees star Scott Elrod!

According to TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan, Elrod is now set to play Avery’s (Jessica Collins) ex-hubby, Joe Clark.  In the back-story, Avery and Joe’s marriage had hit the skids, and she began her affair with war vet Dylan McAvoy (Steve Burton)! But apparently the lawyer/chef has always wished Joe found happiness elsewhere, but has always carried the guilt with her of what she had done to their marriage.

A Y&R show rep told TVG:  “Viewers can expect Joe to have more than a few tricks up his sleeve as he crosses paths with several key Y&R characters.”

Elrod will begin to be seen on air in early October.  As mentioned, Elrod starred opposite Anne Heche in the ABC comedy Men in Trees as Cash the handyman, and also appeared in the Oscar winning film, Argo, among other screen credits.

So what do you think about the casting of Scott Elrod?  Looking forward to Joe coming to town to throw a wrench into Dylan and Avery’s relationship?   Weigh-in below!

This man should have been chosen to play the character of Christian Grey on 50 shades of grey!!!

William

I know right. He looks like Colin Egglesfield.

Will make Dullan and Billy look like road kill.

Y & R has several sexy men. Sooo glad Scott joined the cast. Love the soap!

Perhaps another actor who audition for the role of Adam, but wasn’t quite right so they created this character for him? All I know the show is introducing another new character and at this rate it won’t be long before JFP can rename the show, because it will be basically a whole different show than the one Mr Bell created.

Mary I think JFP is running scared over there her Billy recsasts have been epic fail! I still say GT/nu Phyllis was only cast because she wanted to show Stafford a thing or two as my sister would say. GT is too young for the role it is the same mistake MAB made with Maura West as the new Diane Jenkins. Still off my DVR! I also think she has a unhealthy obsession with Steve Burton which has ruined the show for me if he is not on the screen he is talked about.

Scott is a very hot man, he has gorgeous eyes and a hot body. Wow eye candy. LOL. I have a boyfriend, who is hot too. Scott is a terrific actor. Welcome scott to daytime. I will be watching you on The Young and The Restless. Maybe phyllis will hit the sheets with him. Gina Tagnoni first air date August 11, I cannot wait. Gina will be terrific as the new Phyllis.

Jeremy

I don’t know this actors body of work, though I do agree…he sure looks very hot man, indeed. Gosh, as I’m a GH & DAYS fan…I think he’d be a better Nathan and definitely look great with Maxie. Y&R’s gain!

aria

he kind of looks like gh nathan, either way, i’ll take him over steve burton!

I’m very excited about this. I love Scott’s work, and have always wondered about Joe’s history with Avery. It’ll be nice to see how this all plays out, and how Joe will interact with the rest of the cast of characters. Bring him on!! I’m dying to see how this is going to turn out!

Dtmh
Dtmh

…..or is he the new Adam?

Don
Don

he is not the new adam he will be playing joe clark avery’s ex husband so no he is not adam.

Dtmh

I read the article but they’ve had casting before for one character and it was really for the surprise return of another character.

Nancy
Nancy

I was thinking the same thing. Could they be fooling us into thinking it’s Joe, but it’s really going to be Adam?

Dtmh
Dtmh

Yes, I believe that too and I think he would be a good fit for the role. I don’t know his age but he could pass for nic and Victoria’s younger bro unlike the last actor,but I did like him.

su0000
su0000

He looks a bit young an too handsome to have been with Avery..
But, perhaps it is just a good photo of him..

I hope he is serial killer and spots Kelly.
Y&R and mostly me needs some excitement, badly..

So, is this guy under contract or recurring..? I think I like him..

Johnny
Johnny

Are you crazy, Avery is beautiful and has good taste in men. Jessica Collins is a very pretty lady and a terrific actress.

su0000
su0000

awww Johnny..
I did not say she isn’t pretty or anything about her acting..
(it’s her always grinning … LOL..

and she is pretty and can act ..
but I just dont see her and the handsomely rugged Joe as matching up ..

Have to see them interact .. ya know, screen chem and all that stuff .. 🙂

Darren
Darren

I agree with you Johnny, Jessica Collins is very attractive and the lady can act. Jessica is 43 years old, wow she looks very young for her age.

CeeCee
CeeCee

No, su0000. Look him up. He just is a hottie in every picture, not in just this one. He looks a lot like my husband.
I do agree with you; Avery is all wrong for him, as she was for Nick. She and Dylan are boringly perfect together.
I also agree with Mary SF. Inasmuch as I simply salivate over Scott, Y&R is starting to look like Grand Central.

su0000
su0000

CeeCee ..
I agree! He is hot.. and-
Dylan and Avery are a sedative .!
They don’t do anything..
She goes in the coffee shop they talk about nothing interesting she leaves and he fiddles with the coffee machine.. they talk, that is all that is going with them..
Avery and Dylan do nothing = boring.. lol ..
I can’t waste my soap viewing time them I FF through their conversation about nothing..

At least- Seinfeld’s show that was ”all about nothing” was funny!

When I saw his pic I thought he was the new Adam …. then I read..

((that is good he is not the new Adam I don’t care to have MM replaced))

Harry
Harry

well, then they shan’t recast Adam! If you don’t care for it, then it will not be done.

jimh(leave it to beaver)

He shouldve played Adam…

Maria

Adam Newman will be back by the fall, mark my words Cameron Mathison will play Adam. This will happen. Cameron is sexy and a wonderful actor.

Harry
Harry

Oh Good Lord, I hope you are wrong, Maria. Everything about Cameron speaks to his being the anti-Adam.
They might as well cast Cameron as Jim Morrison.

Chaz
Chaz

Hopefully not! CM is a decent actor but he doesn’t have the qualities needed for Adam….someone who can be vulnerable and yet be ruthless, vicious and scheming. I think if cast he would suffer the same fate as David Tom. And after that disaster I don’t think TPTB would want that happening again.

Harry…TOTALLY AGREED!!!!! Cameron Mathison playing Adam Newman? HAHAHAHAHA!!!!! And…N-O!!!!! No No No No. Next…..

Seems Y&R is no longer the show Bill Bell created. So many new people. I always liked Avery though. Was glad Phyllis was given a family. Sad Avery and Nick could not last. Seems Avery and Dylan are the center couple now.

New cast is easy on the eyes, for sure. A boy toy for Ashley?

CeeCee

Hmmm—very interesting.

Dylan McAvoy who?

Nikki

I’m supposed to believe that Avery cheated on this gorgeous, sexy hunk of man meat with average looks, boring, Dudley-do-right Dylan?! He better be a serial killer or something, otherwise that scenario would make no sense.

jaybird369

Nikki…Oh, girlfriend…you are SO RIGHT ON!!!!! Any on-screen soap chick that would cheat on that V-E-R-Y S-E-X-Y A-S H-E-L-L Joe Clark with that dull-as-dishwater Dylan would clearly be OUT OF HER MIND!!!!!

Nikki…your ‘sexy hunk of man meat’ comment TRULY MADE MY DAY…LOL!!!!! Thank you.

Take care, Nikki. XOXOXOXOXO

One question, why in the world would Avery ever look at another man, when she has this man at home. Another storyline that will make no sense, but he will be nice to look at.

Mary SF
Mary SF

Yes, it never a bad idea to cast a good looking guy on a show– I am sure they will find many ways for him to go shirtless lol—but you’re right without a story what is the point of bringing a new characters, they cannot make up for poor writing. And as for your question, I know you weren’t being serious, but to state the obvious—if sex was just about looks it doesn’t make sense, but marriage is about more than having a hot husband– no doubt Avery’s ex wasn’t meeting her emotional needs and Dylan did.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Oh, I agree, Mary SF. Who would not admire a hot guy? I am married with two small children; that doesn’t mean a great looking guy won’t grab my attention…it’s human nature. But, being blessed with good looks does not a happy marriage make. One thing has nothing to do with the other. As you say, Mary, If the emotional needs are not met, there is no marriage…just role-play.

I wont get excited until I see him on the screen. Y&R has done such poor job with their casting with the exception of Gina Tognoni. I dont know his body of work either so we’ll see if he can make an impact.

Alan
Alan

Thank you, Y&R!

I was hoping for yet another new character to join the show and the best part is that this one will be involved with Dylan and Avery which means more screen time for that super popular couple and less for the veteran characters I enjoy.

Hooray!

mike

Scott will be a very welcome addition to this show which has gotten very stale and has suffered from bad casting decisions of late.

Jimmy
Jimmy

Oh boy, you’re telling me about those bad casting decisions! The only one they got right recently was Gina Tognoni as Phyllis, but this new Billy? Good lord, I was very willing to give him a chance, and granted it’s only been a few weeks, but I can’t stand him! He just isn’t a great actor, at least not for his part. If they brought him in as Stitch’s brother, I’d be okay with it, but not as Billy.

Nanci

So disappointed. WHY do they keep adding new characters?
Again and again, and so close together. This is going way overboard.

I remember Scott Elrod from Men In Trees. I TOTALLY AGREE with CeeCee…WHAT A H-U-N-K!!!!! And…the dude can act, too!!!!! An idea: I think that Y&R should pair his character of Joe with Mariah. To me, that would be WAY MORE INTERESTING than a possible Dylan/Avery/Joe love triangle…BLECH!!!!!

Until next time…D-E-U-C-E-S!!!!!

hook up ashley wth this man candy stat!!! speaking of man candy whrs tyler been lately, he had so much potential when he weaseling his way around lily, now hes been love struck for abby and boring. i loved tyler when he was cocky !! wth averys ex in town, more tyler and maybe bring back carmine i will be one very happy viewer!!1

I had to Wiki his “body” of work

Oye! YES ! he was on “Men In Trees” ABC : which lasted for ONLY 2 seasons

unfortunately

this was one night time serial… I wish found an audience

Love Anne Heche

Wow this dude is a pretty boy, He is a hot man. rumor I heard 3 days ago, is that Jon Hensley ex Holden Snyder as the world turns might be the new Adam Newman. I hope its true, I love Jon Hensley. He is very hot and a wonderful actor.

Chaz
Chaz

Hensley is too old to play Adam. Even pushing it and making Adam 40, Hensley is almost 50. Adam is SUPPOSED to be younger than Nick, after all.

Johnny
Johnny

How old are you?? Lol. You sound like a 13 year old schoolgirl. You WAY overuse the word “hot”. Jon Hensley is pushing 50.

Timmm

Seems like Y&R is doing what GH has been doing, creating a whole new soap within a soap? Seems like the executives have this thought, out with the old and in with the new? Well, for one thing, the new actors are usually cheaper than the vets. Either way, lets hope Joe is written well and he can act. GH hired a “Hunk” [Detective West] and he cannot act past his looks! Stiff as a board! No emotions what so ever! Go Joe!

lizzy
lizzy

He should have been the new billy because that other actor is just weird looking.

Chaz
Chaz

Well, since Jack has moved on with Kelly maybe Phyllis will dally with her sister’s ex?

Mary SF
Mary SF

I had the same thought—- but no pairing will work unless the writing is there and I fear these writers are not up for the challenge.

CeeCee
CeeCee

That would be sweet irony, wouldn’t it, Chaz? Afterall, Avery dallied with Nick, Phyllis’s ex. Full circle…oh, joy…lol. Love your thought-process.

Michael (not Fairman)
Michael (not Fairman)

Well, if you can’t write interesting, compelling stories, you can at least cast nice-looking actors, right (even if you saddle them with subpar material)?

I don’t remember much about this guy from Men In Trees, but if he’d been a weak link in the acting department, I’d definitely remember–it was on the whole a well-acted, well-cast show, and he would have stuck out. (Oh, and well-written, too, by the way; hey, Y&R, good writing, you know, maybe you could try importing that aspect from Men In Trees too, while you’re at it? Please? Pretty please?)

Who Makes Their Cast Look Best? The Young and the Restless Wins MUAH Award For Hair and Make-Up

On Saturday night, The Make-Up Artists and Hair Stylist Guild Awards (MUAH) were doled out in ceremonies held in Los Angeles recognizing the work of series and features in television and movies.  The award is given out in 23 categories.

In the categories of Hair and Make-Up in Daytime Television, the winners were The Young and the Restless.  The winning team for Y&R make-up was: Patricia Denney, Marlene Mason, Kathy Jones, and for Hair: Regina Rodriguez, Adriana Lucio, Vanessa Bragdon.

Y&R won on a night that saw such standout shows as The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Jesus Christ Superstar, and films: A Star is Born, Vice, and Mary Queen of Scots taking home the prize in major categories.   See complete winners list here.

The MUAHS were presented just out one day after the Academy Awards reversed its decision to hand out the Oscar for Makeup and Hairstyling during commercial breaks.

They had previously announced that it would present the categories of: cinematography, film editing, live action short, and make-up and hair during commercials and then later playback the acceptance speeches later in the broadcast.  However, due to the uproar of that decision, it was quickly reversed and now all categories, per usual, will be presented on-air.

So, what do you think of Y&R wins last night in the Daytime category?  Do the characters of Genoa City look the best in daytime? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Chicago Police Believe That Jussie Smollett May Have Been “Active Participant” In His Own Attack

Saturday has brought with it some major twists and developments into the alleged assault on Empire star, Jussie Smollett (Jamal Lyon) through multiple reports.  Two law enforcement sources with knowledge of the on-going investigation told CNN that Chicago Police believe actor Jussie Smollet paid two men to orchestrate an assault on him.

The men in question, who are brothers, Olabinjo and Abimbola Osundairo, were originally arrested on Wednesday, but released without charges Friday after Chicago police cited: “Due to new evidence as a result of today’s interrogations, the individuals questioned by police in the Empire case have now been released without charging and detectives have additional investigative work to complete.”  Reports also say that the two men are fully cooperating with law enforcement.

Of note is: that the brothers are of Nigerian descent and teach online body building classes. The Chicago Tribune reports that Smollett follows the brothers’ workout page on Instagram.   One brother reportedly appeared in an episode of Empire, but was not credited it for it.

Smollett’s attack happened in the early hours of January 29th on the streets of Chicago, when Smollett told authorities that two men were “yelling out racial and homophobic slurs.”  He also noted that one of the attackers put a rope around his neck and poured an unknown chemical substance on him.

The sources told CNN there are records that show the two brothers purchased the rope found around Smollett’s neck at an Ace Hardware store in Chicago.

“The new direction of the investigation is now based on the premise that Mr. Smollett was an active participant in the incident,” a law enforcement source close to the situation told Deadline.

In a statement from Chicago PD late Saturday: “We can confirm that the information received from the individuals questioned by police earlier in the Empire case has in fact shifted the trajectory of the investigation. We’ve reached out to the ‘Empire’ cast member’s attorney to request a follow-up interview.”

So, what do you believe at this juncture?  Do you think Smollett would stage a hate crime on himself? Could the police just not have found the true culprits? Share your theories on this developing story.

Drake Hogestyn Chats On John Black’s Latest Predicament With Diana and Leo On ‘Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast’

The complex life of John Black (Drake Hogestyn) just got even more complicated on NBC’s Days of our Lives; thanks to the arrival of his ex-flame Diana Colville (Judith Chapman) and the bombshell that bad boy Leo Stark (Greg Rikaart), who has been causing so much trouble for Will (Chandler Massey) and Sonny (Freddie Smith), is actually his biological son!  Boy, John certainly has had some kids he never knew about pop up (remember, Paul Narita is John’s son, too).  But, is this all a tale spun by Diana, or the truth regarding Leo?

Longtime DAYS vet, Drake Hogestyn sits down with host, Michael Fairman on an all-new installment of NBC’s Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast.  During the conversation, Drake talks about his surprise learning from the script that Diana Cooper was indeed his ex, Diana Colville.

The beloved actor reveals that at one point he thought Genie Francis (Laura, GH) might be coming back to reprise the role, but now that it’s Judith Chapman he is having a great time acting opposite her.  In addition, being a true historian of DAYS, Drake takes the listeners on some fun facts that they may not have remembered. Later, Hogestyn reveals why he and Deidre Hall (Marlena) have found such success as DAYS’ enduring John and Marlena.

Michael commends Drake on his Daytime Emmy Pre-Nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his emotional turn following Marlena being shot at the Jarlena nuptials, and the family saying their goodbyes believing she was going to die, especially she the good doc had a DNR request on her legal forms filed with the hospital.

In the backstage segment of the podcast, Eric Martsolf (Brady) takes Fairman on what a typical production day is like for him and others in Salem: visiting the wardrobe department, stopping to talk to the stage manager, and chatting it up with co-stars along the way including: Lauren Koslow (Kate) and Linsey Godfrey (Sarah).

The new episode of Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast is currently streaming on NBC.com here, and will be available for download via iTunes on Monday.

So, do you think John will do next now that Diana is working her way back into his life, and Leo is his son?  Will he tell Marlena what is going on?  What did you think of the sentiments shared by Drake in the interview? Comment below.
