Look for The Young and the Restless star Scott Elrod (Joe) to make an appearance on the hit ABC primetime series How to Get Away with Murder!

Elrod will be in an upcoming episode of the series second season which will kick off on September 24th at 10PMET/PT.

While Joe Clark makes plenty of waves in Genoa City, no details are available at this time as to the role he will play on

However, Elrod told SOD on his experience: “I can’t believe how quick everything runs behind the scenes on Y&R On How to Get Away with Murder, I was on the set all day but they still hadn’t shot my five pages. I was like, ‘Really (laughs)?’ ”

Elrod confirms what actors have always noted, that when working in the soap genre there is such a much difference when shooting scenes as opposed to primetime television work.

So, looking forward to seeing Elrod on one of the hottest shows on TV?  Share your thoughts below.

So True! Every since Avery left the show, Y&R doesn’t know what to do with Joe.

I still think he shouldv’e played Adam…he physically looks more like MM than Justin Hartley who i feel shouldv’e been Billy instead!!!

I agree that Justin should have played Billy, but Adam is supposed to be younger than both Nick and Victoria. Scott looks so much older, no? I guess TPTB don’t even pay attention to that, anyway.
Regardless, Jimh. I’m glad he’s in a soap…he’s gorgeous!! All man!!! Yes? LOL.

You are so on point! I love that. Y&R are you listening? You can still make it happen and everyone will turn a blind eye! Haha.

I disagree that Scott should have played Adam. His demeanor is too soft. Adam is a rough and tough person. He could have played Billy. Burgess Jenkins who plays Billy now is very very boring. He has a monotone voice that is sickening to hear. Please get rid of Devon, Hillary and Neil’s roles, it is sickening as it is boring. Along with them that plays insignificant roles are the Ester and Kyle. Dillon is everybody’s hero (just stop it). It is time for Victor to stop having all the power, its getting old now. Please darken Cassie’s makeup. She… Read more »

Met Scott this summer in Vancouver when some of the YR cast were guests for the annual Kate Linder Afternoon Tea. Sincere and very humorous too. Is an intelligent individual with interesting background of being an air traffic controller & pilot before acting. Perhaps this gives an actor more depth having worked in various jobs. Wish him the best of luck in Prime Time. Love him as Joe on YR.

Soap Smarts: How Daytime Dramas Are Using Ingenuity To Get Back Into Production During COVID-19

Daytime dramas seldom get the credit they deserve, and now they should be getting further credit for being the first back into production as the coronavirus pandemic continues to rage on, and trying to implement new ways to keep their trademarks love scenes, intimate moments and two-person scenes somehow looking in tact; even though it will be far from how it was done in the past.

In the story from the Associated Press The Bold and the Beautiful EP, and head writer, Brad Bell – who’s soap was the first one back into the studio – commented on how the show is utilizing mannequins, or real-life significant others to help pull off close contact love scenes and how it is rather groundbreaking. “We feel almost like television pioneers all these years later because we’re the first ones out, blazing new ways of producing the shows with the current safety standards, and we’re getting the job done. It’s very exciting.”

When B&B scripts written pre-coronavirus were reviewed in preparation for shooting during the pandemic now, originally all the cinches and smooches were cut. But Bell found a solution whereby a remote actor recites lines as their on-camera scene partner responds in a “low, intimate voice” and engages in “beautiful, yearning eye contact” with an off-camera doll.

As far as the soapy embrace or lip-lock, B&B cast member Katrina Bowden (Flo) has had her husband and musician Ben Jorgensen stand in for her on-screen love interest, Darin Brooks (Wyatt) since returning to taping new episodes.

Days of our Lives EP Ken Corday noted to AP:  The “learning curve” is steep. Before the pandemic, “we were producing eight, one-hour episodes a week. That’s basically 40 or 50 scenes a day.  That’s going to be basically impossible to reopen, so to speak, at that pace. We’re going to have to be more careful. So will there be five shows a week, or more? Yet to be determined.  It will certainly cost more.”

B&B and now Y&R which heads back into production next week, and the others soaps, will be using the company called Reel Health, which launched in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to serve the entertainment industry, and hires medically trained workers to monitor sets and enforce protocols developed by a company epidemiologist and in accordance with industry and government standards,

Alicia Rodis, a veteran intimacy coordinator who helped the actors guild develop guidelines for taping scenes of romance and simulated sex. shared: “Finding ways to put romance on the screen is inevitable and necessary.  At the end of the day, intimacy isn’t going anywhere. Physical intimacy is a part of the human experience. And we’re going to have to find a way to be able to continue to tell these stories, even in extraordinary circumstances.”

So, what do you think of how soaps are tackling taping episodes in the new normal to give their fans a sense of all that they love from their favorite daytime dramas during COVID-19? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
