Former The Young and the Restless star Hartley Sawyer has a new gig. The actor, who once portrayed Genoa City's Kyle Abbott, has landed a recurring role of DC Comics' character Ralph Dibny on The Flash.

According to Deadline Dibny, as the Elongated Man, "is a fast-talking" private eye with investigative skills that rival those of Batman. Upon discovering he has the power to stretch his body to any shape or form, Dibny uses his new abilities to help Team Flash solve one of Central City's greatest mysteries." 

Sawyer portrayed the son of Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) and Diane Jenkins (Maura West) on Y&R from 2012-2014. He replaced Blake Hood and was replaced by Lachlan Buchanan in the role.
