Hartley Sawyer OUT at The Young and the Restless


Setside sources are telling me Hartley Sawyer is done as Kyle Abbott on The Young and the Restless. In March of 2013, Sawyer began playing Jack Abbott's (Peter Berman) son, when popular actor Blake Hood was dumped from the role. No word on if the soap plans to recast again.

Ever since The Young and the Restless recast Kyle Abbott with, well, Hartley Sawyer, we've wondered what happened behind-the-scenes that led to the incredible Blake Hood being replaced. While we may never know the truth about about such casting shenanigans, we are happy to report Hood survived the cloak and dagger antics of Genoa City by ending up in the midst of a Revolution.

Hood appeared in the Season 2 premiere of NBC's hit serial as a bartender who helped break Charlie's (Tracy Spiridakos) back. Check out more photos of Blake Hood as Jeff in Revolution's "Born in the U.S.A." after the jump!




DC #727: A Clockwork Orange


On today’s Daytime Confidential podcast Luke Kerr, Jamey Giddens, Jillian Bowe and Regan Cellura discuss the latest All My Children, The Bold and the Beautiful, Days of Our Lives, General Hospital, One Life to Live and The Young and the Restless headlines and storylines, including:

Karen and Katie team up to take over Spencer Publications and fire Bill. Hope meets Wyatt’s mom on The Bold and the Beautiful.

Patsy Pease will return to Days of Our Lives. A Sharknado hits Twitter when Jen Lilley claimed her DAYS character “Theresa could kick Maxie ass with one hand tied behind her back. #Days vs #GH #lovingit” Lilley also alleged she kept Maxie from being killed off of General Hospital. Sami isn’t happy with EJ when he reveals his plan to overthrow Stefano.

William DeVry books General Hospital as Connie’s boss. Maxie gets a visit from ghost Georgie. Silas and Ava have serious chemistry, and we want to see more of it. Brad tries to get in Michael’s pants.

Jack finds out the truth about Summer on The Young and the Restless. Hartley Sawyer has failed as a Kyle Abbott recast, and undermined the drama surrounding the revelation of Summer’s paternity.  Is it time for Y&R to get Blake Hood back, or simply find a much better actor? Is Y&R’s latest storyline twist involving Sharon as vile as the stomach churning pairing with Victor under the previous regime? Dylan and Chelsea are a snore. Can anything be done to make them more interesting?

Kyle Refuses Summer’s Cotton Candy on The Young and the Restless


Summer (Hunter King) tried yet again to seduce Kyle (Blake Hood), but he wasn’t interested in any her cotton candy. He told her to get dressed, and leave his room.
 
Later, Kyle told Summer business associates shouldn’t be hooking up. However, she pushed back by saying they weren’t in the same department.  He informed Summer he was into someone else. When she asked who it was, he refused to tell her.
