Ex-General Hospital Star Scott Reeves on Young and Restless Return: "I Would Definitely Consider It"






Steven Lars Webber, M.D. may not have been fatally shish kabobed by his mama on General Hospital, but Scott Reeves' previous soap character, randy cosmetics exec Ryan McNeil, died at the altar on The Young and the Restless way back in 2001. Instead of Ryan being able to successfully re-marry heiress Victoria Newman (then Heather Tom), his unstable ex, Tricia Dennison (Sabryn Genet) busted a life-draining cap in that ass. That little factoid hasn't stopped chatter about Reeves potentially returning to Y&R, where his BFF Steve Burton now appears as Dylan McAvoy.

 In the March 18 issue of ABC Soaps In Depth, Reeves responded to the magazine's inquiry about a possible Genoa City return trip, saying:

"I would definitely consider it."


Hmm...it would be a hard sell to explain why anyone would fake Ryan's death. I mean, the only enemies he stacked up during his decade or so in Genoa City were all the wives he cheated on!

I guess Victoria's (Amelia Heinle) nefarious daddy, Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) coulda snatched Ryan up to prevent him from marrying his beloved daughter again? Or, perhaps Victor could hire a Ryan lookalike to bust up Victoria's marriage to Billy (Billy Miller)? Stranger things have happened on a soap!

Would you want to see Reeves return to The Young and the Restless as Ryan McNeil, or some new character all together? Sound off in the comments, but before you do, re-watch Tricia's nutty-as-a-fruitcake self ice Ry-Ry below!

They can bring Ryan back, but they shouldn't put him back with Victoria. Amelia Heinle and Scott Reeves probably wouldn't have much chemistry. Amelia needs a VIBRANT leading man, and Reeves, while I liked him as Ryan and like him as an actor, has always been quite vanilla and dullsville!!!

Of course he says that now. He's fishing for WORK. Ryan McNeil is dead and needs to stay dead. The cast of Y&R is already over bloated.

No we don't need Ryan on canvas right now, I don't want him Sad ....B&B is the one that needs Scott as a new character to play off Heather Wink

What was Katie's first boyfriend's name Rocco or Rocky...he was a singer\entertainment..perfect fit. Wink

I loved that scene. Sabryn Genet would be welcome but I never want to see Scott Reeves return to Y&R. He was never a strong actor but terrible these past few years on GH. Both Scott and Missy Reeves should retire in Tennessee as far as I am concerned. She's terrible on DAYS.

NO. Ryan should stay dead. Back-from-the-dead stories were Maria's thing. If they're going to do one of those, it should be either an Abbott or Dru.
Besides, I don't even see how he would fit in with the direction of the show right now.

Isn't there a church somewhere he can go and be pastor of?

Wasn't there a picture of Sabryn Genet tweeted by Michael Muhney while she was on set???? Or was that a dream? There were a bunch of people talking about it a couple of weeks ago...

Well I bet Scott Reeves wants back. He's now unemployed, and his BFF Steve is there.

But the person who REALLY should get back in there is Tricia Dennison McNeil! Damn, she was nutty! And Sabryn Genet acted her ass off playing her! Loved it. This would be a perfect time to bring her back (even I would have to start watching again). Villy has been happy for quite some time without interference, and crazy Trish could get back in the game to have her ultimate revenge on "Miss Vicky".

Even better, she could do a "Kristen DiMera" and get released from the psychiatric hospital after years and years of therapy and good behaviour. In a way that the viewers nor the denizens of GC would be able to tell whether it's real or not (of course it wouldn't be). I say bring on Tricia!!!

DEAD at you suggesting that he go be the pastor at a church! Shame on you, and whoever has to be in his congregation. lol. Though I am sure he could get some KICK ASS Chick-Fil-A discounts!! Laughing out loud Laughing out loud

Who needs Ryan???

AND ... can you imagine Scott Reeves next to Amelia Heinle!? NO writer could keep me from falling to sleep.

If the role of Victoria would still be played by Heather Tom, I'd say go for it ... but no Ryan's dead and should stay dead.

NO meetings for your buddy, Steve!

The only character that I would want to see come back from the dead would be Drucilla (and given the friction between VR and Sony I know will never happen). Other than that no more back from the dead plots. Time to move forward.

I tried tweeting to you on Twitter the other day and you have me blocked. How come?

Did you see your girl VR tweeting today about KSJ? Even though she worked with him for a decade she apparently can't spell his name (*Kristoph St. John*)

Coffee Junkie,

I don't know what your Twitter link is. What is it? I will check it out. I am not sure why I would have blocked you.

I totally agree! I would much rather see him on B&B opposite Heather Tom. They had a natural chemistry. Besides nowadays Bill seems to be preoccupied with either stroking Brooke's ego or worrying about his son's love life. I would think Katie would need a little "attention". Maybe in the form of a new love interest? Wink

Also this way, Scott Reeves can still see his buddy Steve Burton since the shows tape across the hall from each other. Lol

PREACH IT SOAPBABY! The only surprise is what took CarTooni so long to ax Scott Reeves, but i'm guessing it was his 6-pack. Wink Please retire Scott and take your homophobe wife with you!

I thought SR decided to move on from GH, so why would he want to go to Y&R?

Member since:

Uh no! Keep Scott the hell away from Y&R and B&B for that matter. Like others have said, he and his homophobic wife need to retire to Tennessee and leave us daytime fans in peace!

Unless there is a plausible way to bring him back, I'd say no as well.

I want John and Dru back first. So yes, that'd be too many back from the dead storylines.

I did like him back in the day though. I was shocked when he was killed off.

OH PLEASE NO! His acting on GH was so one dimensional and I could list off two handfuls of people I would love to see be brought back from the dead!!!

Drucilla is one of them. This show needs her spunk and sass and determination!

Diane Jenkins is another! We need a BITCH.

Cole... that would add a great dimension to Victoria and Billy's union.

Ryan wouldn't really bring much in my books.

alstonboy4315 ... good on you for your Chick-Fil-A comment re Scott Reeves.

Scott Reeves could come back. He is (or maybe was) a rather cute little pocket fellow but like so many soap "studs" he is also probably a god fearing homophobic fundamentalist. Any any rate, he could return as another character. God knows it has been done before on Y&R.

Yeah, bigotry is hilarious. What if Scott were Jewish, and you said, "Isn't there some temple somewhere he could go be the rabbi of?"

Anti-Christian bigotry is no more acceptable than any other kind. Be less hateful.

Kbirdusa--

My comments were NOT "Anti-Christian"!! Please don't twist my words. I have no problem with Christians AT ALL. I do have a problem with Scott Reeves, who supports Chick-Fil-A, an organization that supports homophobia. What I was essentially saying is that I would not want SCOTT REEVES to be my pastor if I were in a church.

I love Jesus and I go to church occasionally.......not as much as I should, but that's beside the point! Smile

And I have no idea where your "rabbi"/Jewish statements are coming from, so I won't even dignify those with a response.

I am not hateful, nor am I a bigot. Now that we've gotten this bit of unpleasantness out of the way,let's get back to SOAPS and stop throwing baseless accusations around and insulting people we've never met before......

Happy posting and have a great day!!!

Suggesting that someone spread their gospel can in no way be construed as anti-Christian, except by people like you, Kdirbusa, who seem eager to take offence, even when none is intended.

My God embraces all and excludes none.

Now run along and say your prayers. I'll say one for you.

SoapArmageddon-

Thanks for backing me up! Beer Smile

I am many things.....overly negative, overly critical of bad acting, sometimes superficial.........but NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER have I been a bigot or anti-religion.

Now back to Y&R. It was Reeves who wanted Ryan to be killed off, and killed off he was, so he should have to accept his choices in life. But that doesnt mean that somehow Tricia Dennison couldnt make a return 2-year stint or something. That would be so utterly fantastic in every way.

Now back to political talk. I dont see why the whole Chik-Fil-A thing has to be brought up again. Just because Melissa Reeves brought up a certain point of view doesnt mean that she's bigoted, or even has strong views about gay or lesbians. But she did tweet about the issue knowing that DAYS probably has a large gay following, so she may have wanted to consider that fact.

You dont see me talking about abortion at the monthly Chamber of Commerce meeting.

It just might happen. Steve R is best buddies with Steve Burton,and he has a lot of pull with Jill F Phelps. I found Steve R dull on GH. They needed a stronger actor in the role.

Sorry, I meant Scott Reeves. He played the character of Steve on GH.

Scott Reeves AND his wife should really just exit daytime altogether. Their "acting" brings absolutely nothing to the table, and the obvious homophobic views they SHARE do not have a place on daytime, sorry. Missy Reeves blew it when she made those comments. She should just accept that, and exit stage left.
