    I agree. I hated it when they moved her to older men (Cole and Ryan, etc.).

    I own a sports car we only drive when we are totally sober I hope this was not the result of a drunk driver I understand he was a passenger in a Porsche. My heart goes out to the family please understand only drive when you are sober especially a sports car! I always confused him with Ryan phillippe . Very sad!

    Newmans need to crash, burn, and dethrone.

    I do remember him on Y&R, that was the first time I ever seen him on screen;I remember being startled by how good looking he is. I realize over the years of watching his films he has a personality to match his physical looks. My heart goes out to his family for their loss.
