I hope this means he’s being recast on Y&R. A non-speaking part as vampire food is the best career choice for this guy, at least until he invests in some serious acting lessons.
And “Carmine” can go with him and be dessert. This show needs some serious recasting in the younger set.

Does this portend of things to come for Kyle in Genoa City? While I do nto agree with the SORAS of the character, I would like to see Jack Abbott be able to have some kind of relationship with his son. He is the only 100 percent Abbott grandchild on the canvas anymore to be invovled with business and such. Billy’s baby is an infant… for now. (You will recall Ashley is not a true Abbott though raised by John who I do not think ever knew the truth.) And Abby is a Newman, too.

Can’t wait for the Vamp Diaries’ new season! Vampire Elena better choose Damon! I hope Caroline remains with Tyler and not Klaus!

TAKE HIM, PLEASE!! This kid cannot act!!! Worst addition to “Y & R” ever – bring back the younger Kyle and de-SORAS him!!!

I agree. Do you also see the resemblance to Michael Muhney? It is so obvious on the previous page where Blake Hood’s story is just below Michael Muhney’s.

Why oh WHY did they cast this guy when he looks so much like Adam? I have to keep a scorecard when they are both on the screen or I get confused. 🙂

Bart stole my line! 😉 Such great news! I sure hope he departs for some other show and soon!!! I will never understand why they hired someone who looks so much like MM. Not to mention it certainly can’t be because of his acting talent.

Best wishes, Blake. Just want you to get your training elsewhere.

The character should never have been SORAS’ed in the first place, BJ – MAB has screwed up so many timelines because of unnecessary SORAS’ing!!

Wow! People are just so negative. Disappointed when all soap fans do is complain and criticize.
I think it’s great that he got the part on Vampire Diaries! It’s a popular show and that’s a pretty big deal. I think it’s a boon to soaps when actors from soaps get parts on primetime as well and can show they are just as good!
And I think Blake is adorable as Kyle. I love the scenes with him and Jack. I think he could be written for better- give him something more to do.

I hope he stays there. He has not been an asset on Y&R.

From what I have read, he will only have a short stay on The Vampire Diaries. He’s most likely been hired to be an inevitable victim as most don’t make it out of Mystic Falls alive. Plus this show has way too many characters on it.
