The talented and oh-so-sexy Wilson Bethel is on the move to a new show that soap fans should definitely tune-in for! The former star of The Young and the Restless where he played Ryder is heading to the new ABC sudsy drama, Blood & Oil!
Bethel, who was series regular on CW’s Hart of Dixie , and most recently played astronaut Scott Carpenter on ABC’s The Astronaut Wives Club has continued to have a successful career in primetime television.
According to Deadline, Bethel will play the role of Finn, a charismatic but poor businessman, who owns a food truck, and partners up with Kess (Keston John) and Ada’ (Yaani King).
The ABC drama stars Don Johnson as a ruthless oil tycoon in the lead role, and Chace Crawford and Rebecca Rittenhouse as a young couple who move to “The Bakken” in North Dakota, booming after the biggest oil discovery in American history.
The series written by Josh Pate and Rodes Fishburne and executive produced by Tony Krantz looked extremely promising when it has its official unveiling in front of the television press at the recent ABC TCA Summer Press Tour, just a few weeks ago.
