Per a tidbit posted on soaps.com, Y&R has put out a casting call. Here's the information on the new character:

"Y&R" has a casting call our for the role of Dylan MacAvoy, a man who comes from a working class family, and who studied to be an architect before it became necessary to start running his family's business when his father, a contractor and construction worker, suffered an injury. He served in the Army Special Ops and completed two tours of duty in the Middle East. He uses a quirky sense of humor and optimistic attitude to counteract the effects of the war on his psyche. The character is full of energy and rough & ready.

As for when the show wants the new character to start airing, that was not disclosed. This casting call was just posted on December 4th.

That's a very good possibility! I was thinking along the lines of JR Martinez who was on AMC and played a wounded Iraq War veteran on that show until the show's cancellation. But that would put Y&R on African-American overload, knowing that we have two new AA characters about to debut here soon.

I thinking blue collar for Jamey, it would fit his background...I like this young actor playing Jamey thus far. They could be building around his family and the then in age range could open up for other established actresses on Y&R. I love them to cast Robert Newman he be hot lead for a lady on Y&R Wink

It's actually Jamie, not Jamey. Jamie is the kid who is being bullied by Summer and now Fenmore. Jamie divulged what he got in trouble for to Summer and she blasted it all over the internet under a different name, Brittani (or some variation of that).

Um…JR Martinez is African American??? His mother is from El Salvador, and he doesn't know who his father is.

Don't they usually specify an age range when casting calls go out?

I don't like all these new

I don't like all these new characters coming in. Guess it is cheaper labor! Even sister Laura Lee Bell coming back and she probably doesn't make top bucks. Just a family business. Time to quit for good once this Sharon/Adam/Chelsea thing is over. Used to watch for Victor/Vikki but that has dried up. I liked the ranch.

Are we sure that Maria Bell's

Are we sure that Maria Bell's not still in the building? Kill Farren Phelps seems to share her same "hoarder" mentality when it comes to casting. Bring on as much new blood as possible, pay them less than the regulars, push the DESERVING regulars to the backburner and then wonder why the audience doesn't recognize the show anymore.

She's just so desperate to put her "stamp" on the show that she feels like she needs to bring on newbies to do so.

Such a sad mentality.

"African-American overload."

"African-American overload." Really? What a racist thing to say. Is there an overload of white characters? Seems to be a whole lot of THEM on Y&R! Why can't there be just as many blacks as whites? Is there a self-limiting Soap Opera race quota?

Jon, segregation ended a long time ago. Did you notice that our president is of a slightly darker hue than the previous ones? (Sorry the whole Romney thing didn't work out, by the way)

Maybe you and the other Klansmen can get together and produce a soap of your own. Suggested title: The Backward and the Bigoted.

So, brown-skinned faces

So, brown-skinned faces offend you, Jon? You'd rather they not "darken" your small screen? You may not like it, but we do exist--in real life and in fiction! Soap operas are a fictional genre, that if they do a good job, reflect a cross-section of real life. But do you know that? No, you're too wrapped up in your privileged "whiteness" to take your hood off for a look around. Things have changed and they will keep on changing until your opinions are among the minority if not arcane.

Jon is there the word whites

Jon is there the word whites only in the title? I guess Mamie must have rubbed it out cleaning. If the show switches to an all black cast and is well done, I might start watching again! In fact whatever the content and representation, if it is well made that is the only important part. But all the better if the show isn't so homogenized. Speaking of homos why aren't there any gay characters currently on Y&R?
