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!

—may sound shallow and superficial; but, all I can say is, WHAT A HUNK !!

Yes he is a hunk, hot hot hot man.

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

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.

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!

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

cute guy. but y? can avery and macavoy be happy? guess not! soaps sucks!

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!

…..or is he the new Adam?

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

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

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

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.

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..

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

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 .. 🙂

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.

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.

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))

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

He shouldve played Adam…

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.

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.

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?

Hmmm—very interesting.

Dylan McAvoy who?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.


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

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.

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

There sure are a lot of changes at YawneR! Maybe the changes will wake people up!!!

I guess you’ve been snoozing watching Days and have missed all of the change there? 😉

Days of our Lives…HOT AS HELL!!!

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


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.

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.

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

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!

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

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

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.

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.

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?)

Wow, looks like they finally found one with some sex appeal ,,!!!

Wow! That’s all I can say.


Hope he gets Avery back and Dylan’s PTSD gets him put into the psych hospital with Patty.

GOOD ONE, Pat…LOL!!!!! An idea: Maybe Psycho Patty can FINISH OFF stiff-as-a-board Dylan…FOR GOOD!!!!! Oh I am SO TERRIBLE (lol)!!!!! Oh, well.

Take care, Pat. D-E-U-C-E-S!!!!!

Dylan, meet Aunt Patty….

Ha!!! That’s right!

MBmomof3…honey, forgive me but I gotta add on to your funny (lol) post. Check this out:

Dylan…say hello to your WONDERFULLY CRAZY AND ENTERTAINING Aunt Patty!!!!! She’s about to do us soap viewers A HUGE FAVOR by sending Y-O-U (boring self and all) into SOAP OBLIVION (or whatever)!!!!! Oh, well. And…so long muscle-head…forever. Yep.

Take care, ma’am.

At least he’s not Dylan. That’s an upgrade right there.

Y-E-S!!!!! And…not only that…judging by that photo alone (or whatever), I think that that Scott Elrod dude is PART BOYISHLY HANDSOME, PART RUGGEDLY HANDSOME!!!!! As for DULL AND BLAH Dylan…well…never mind…LOL!!!!!


Not attracted to Scott. He doesn’t do it for me. Steve does. It’s all about preference.

Avery left this guy for Dylan in the first place, Yeah right, hog wash!!!!!!

I would have. Dylan is hot.

he is hot!!1 I need to be playing an actress beside him….Nice!

‘XCITED…..Congratz Scott…I am sooo happy for you!!

Now this is the GUY who should be casted for the Fifty Shades of Grey movie. He’s got everything this character is being portrayed in the book. Tall, dark, handsome, cool, gorgeous piercing eyes, handsome-can’t-take-my-eyes -off-him kinda look, etc., etc…..
So please let’s get the word out to Hollywood to get this guy casted for the role of Mr. Grey!!!!!!

You forgot to mention Scott Elrod was amazing in the movie Home Run!

I agree Vicki, yes indeed he should have been Christian Grey

John J. York Returns as General Hospital’s Mac Scorpio and Shares, “Expect The You-Know-What to Hit the Fan”

General Hospital fans were overjoyed when John J. York (Mac Scorpio) revealed he was back on set and taping all-new episodes of the ABC daytime drama series.

The beloved GH star was diagnosed with myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) and multiple smoldering myeloma, two blood and bone marrow disorders, back in 2022.  Later, he underwent treatment for the cancer in September of 2023, which took him off the show while he went through a blood stem cell transplant and the recovery.

Now, those who have waited for Mac to finally get to the truth – that Cody Bell (Josh Kelly) is his biological son – may finally get their wish!  Speaking with TV Insider on his imminent return (he is back on-screen this coming Wednesday, June 19th), York shared on what’s about to go down, “Expect the you-know-what to hit the fan and let the dust come down and settle where it will, so get ready.”

York also prepped viewers that he will look a little different when he first seen back in Port Charles, due to his cancer treatments, “My hair grew back nice. I was not sure how my hair would look because I was bald. Now it’s short, like a military cut.”

Photo: JYorkIG

Speaking on his own health and life, John shared, “With the MDS, if everything goes well with the bone marrow transplant, that should be handled. With the multiple smoldering myeloma, smoldering being the key word, it just kind of stays there in my system. There is a small chance that it could turn into full-blown leukemia at some point, but the goal is for me to die of old age before I die of any kind of blood cancer. I feel fantastic and all the blood tests that I take once a month have all pointed in the direction that things are all going in the right direction, which is really good.”

Are you looking forward to the moment that Mac realizes Cody is his son? What do you think his reaction will be as he has been duped all this time? Happy, as we are, that John is back on-screen on GH? Comment below.

One Life to Live Alum Jonathan Groff Wins First Tony Award For ‘Merrily We Roll Along’

Finally, in his third Tony Award nomination, the multi-talented Jonathan Groff, was named the Tony winner in the Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Musical for his work in the Broadway revival of Sondheim’s Merrily We Roll Along at the 77th annual Tony Awards broadcast on CBS.

In one of the hotly contested categories of the night, Groff bested Brody Grant for The Outsiders, Dorian Harewood for The Notebook, Brian d’Arcy James for Days of Wine and Roses, and Oscar and Olivier Award winner Eddie Redmayne for Cabaret at the Kit Kat Club.

Many thought Groff should have won a Tony back in 2007 for his performance in the original Broadway cast of Spring Awakening, but ‘Merrily’ was the ticket to victory.

One Life to Live fans may remember Groff played the teenager Henry Mackler back in 2007, in what was to be a long arc of a storyline involving a school shooting, but his role as cut short after 11 episodes, due to the real-life Virginia Tech school shooting in April of 2007.

Delivering the most emotional and heartfelt acceptance speech Tony night, Jonathan began. “I grew up in a house surrounded by cornfields in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. I was raised by my parents, Jim and Julie Groff, and my brother David, and the three of them were sitting right there. Thank you for letting me dress up like Mary Poppins when I was three. Thank you for letting me act out scenes from I Love Lucy on my 10th birthday. Thank you for always allowing my freak flag to fly without ever making me feel weird about it.”

He added, “Even if they didn’t always understand me “my family knew the lifesaving power of fanning the flame of a young person’s passions without judgment. I walked through life with an open heart because you let me know that I could. Thank you to all of my teachers back in Pennsylvania, especially Sue Fisher, who told me I could do this for a living.”

Speaking to how Broadway has impacted his life, Groff further teared-up and expressed, “I moved to New York exactly 20 years ago this year and I got a job waiting tables and became a volunteer for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights Aids. All I wanted was to be a part of this community. A thank you to everyone involved in Spring Awakening who not only made that dream come true, but also inspired me to come out of the closet when I was 23. I’m now 39 and musical theater is still saving my soul.”

“Maria Friedman, thank you for letting me be your Franklin Shepherd in this production of Merrily and allowing me the chance to accept respect and express both the lightest and darkest parts of myself,” Groff continued. “Daniel Radcliffe and Lindsay Mendez, you are more than old friends, you are soul mates, and I’m looking forward to watching each other change for the rest of our lives. Thank you to every member of the extraordinary cast for lifting this Merrily into the spiritual stratosphere.”

Groff concluded with, “And finally, I just want to say that when I was a kid in Pennsylvania, I used to record the Tony Awards on a VHS tape and watch the performances over and over again. And to actually be able to be a part of making theater in this city and just as much to be able to watch the work of this incredible, incredible community, has been the greatest gift and pleasure of my life. I thank you and thank you so much for this honor.”

So were you happy to see Jonathan Groff win the Tony for Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Musical? What did you think of his acceptance speech?  Watch it below, then Let us know in the comment section.
