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
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

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)
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.

jaybird369

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
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!!!!!

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

David

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?)

Network Exec, Angelica McDaniel On Y&R’s Staying Power: “We Have This Award-Winning, Ratings-Generating, Money-Making Show, And It Really Adds Value To CBS.”

This week, The Young and the Restless celebrated 30 years as the number-one rated daytime soap opera.  That is a streak of 1,560 weeks in the top spot.

Angelica McDaniel, executive vp daytime programs and syndicated program development at CBS, spoke to the Hollywood Reporter on what has made this remarkable run; attributing it to strong storytelling and a cast that includes several beloved veterans who have been around the entire time.

The executive noted that while other soaps over the years have fallen by the wayside, and even though we are down to only four surviving network soap operas, that Y&R will be around with no end in sight.

McDaniel stated, “We have this award-winning, ratings-generating, money-making show, and it really adds value to CBS. We expect it be a part of our lineup in the future.”

She also added, “The Young and the Restless has some of the best actors in the industry — not in soaps, not in daytime, but in television. We have iconic, legacy characters that have been on our show for decades. Melody Thomas Scott will be celebrating her 40th year on the show in February. Peter Bergman just reached his 30th anniversary in November. Eric Braeden started in 1980. We just have an incredible arsenal of actors who are so talented and play these characters so well that you don’t even realize they’re characters. They become people who are part of your life, part of your daily existence.”

As for the continual investment and ways the audience watches the show on various platforms, McDaniel expresed: “The great thing about daytime television is we have loyal, passionate viewers, and they really like to tune in day and date. They want to stick with their stories and see what’s happening today. … Having said that, The Young and the Restless is also one of the top streamed shows on CBS.com. As trends evolve, we are where our viewers are, and we’re making shows readily accessible so they can get their fix and follow their stories.”

So, what do you think about Y&R? Will it remain if and when all other soaps have come to theirconclusion? Do you think it will continue on for years to come, given its position at number #1? Comment below!

Jacob Young Offers Up Thoughts On Rick and Maya’s Split On The Bold and the Beautiful

As fans of CBS Daytime’s The Bold and the Beautiful know, Daytime Emmy-winner Jacob Young (Rick Forrester) has been off the canvas for some time, and the actor had gone on recurring status with the series.

Young has been busy with other projects involving acting roles, his You Tube show, and music career, but certainly is open to a return to the soap opera.

But after the cover of this week’s Soap Opera Digest hit newsstands; which indicates that Rick and Maya have split with the return on-air of Karla Mosley (Maya) (who had been off the show for maternity leave), it clearly looks like the show is moving in a different direction.

Jacob took to Twitter to offer up his feelings on the matter tweeting: “I for one am incredibly sad and disappointed. Rick and Maya have split. (Love that would never die) I loved working with Karla Mosley.  it has been the highlight of my 21 year career in daytime. TRUST ME when I say your opinion matters.”

Since that posting, fans of the couple known as #Raya, have been voicing their thoughts and sharing photos of the on-screen duo.  Young responded to one in particular saying, “Who remembers this? Gosh, I miss Maya.”  In it,the posting read: “This is heartbreaking, Raya was the only example of what true love looks like on that soap!”

Previously, B&B has told the emotional and socially-relevant love story of a transgender woman falling in love with one of the men of the wealthy and renowned Forrester family.

So, what do you think of Jacob’s comments?  Do you want Rick back on the canvas?  What should then happen next for Maya with no Rick?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
