70 July 10th, 2014 Scott Elrod To The Young and the Restless As Avery’s Ex-Husband!

Watch out Dylan McAvoy and the other gents on The Young and the Restless!  A new hottie is about to arrive in Genoa City in the form of none other than former Men in Trees star Scott Elrod!

According to TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan, Elrod is now set to play Avery’s (Jessica Collins) ex-hubby, Joe Clark.  In the back-story, Avery and Joe’s marriage had hit the skids, and she began her affair with war vet Dylan McAvoy (Steve Burton)! But apparently the lawyer/chef has always wished Joe found happiness elsewhere, but has always carried the guilt with her of what she had done to their marriage.

A Y&R show rep told TVG:  “Viewers can expect Joe to have more than a few tricks up his sleeve as he crosses paths with several key Y&R characters.”

Elrod will begin to be seen on air in early October.  As mentioned, Elrod starred opposite Anne Heche in the ABC comedy Men in Trees as Cash the handyman, and also appeared in the Oscar winning film, Argo, among other screen credits.

So what do you think about the casting of Scott Elrod?  Looking forward to Joe coming to town to throw a wrench into Dylan and Avery’s relationship?   Weigh-in below!

    Perhaps another actor who audition for the role of Adam, but wasn’t quite right so they created this character for him? All I know the show is introducing another new character and at this rate it won’t be long before JFP can rename the show, because it will be basically a whole different show than the one Mr Bell created.

    Mary I think JFP is running scared over there her Billy recsasts have been epic fail! I still say GT/nu Phyllis was only cast because she wanted to show Stafford a thing or two as my sister would say. GT is too young for the role it is the same mistake MAB made with Maura West as the new Diane Jenkins. Still off my DVR! I also think she has a unhealthy obsession with Steve Burton which has ruined the show for me if he is not on the screen he is talked about.

    Scott is a very hot man, he has gorgeous eyes and a hot body. Wow eye candy. LOL. I have a boyfriend, who is hot too. Scott is a terrific actor. Welcome scott to daytime. I will be watching you on The Young and The Restless. Maybe phyllis will hit the sheets with him. Gina Tagnoni first air date August 11, I cannot wait. Gina will be terrific as the new Phyllis.

    I don’t know this actors body of work, though I do agree…he sure looks very hot man, indeed. Gosh, as I’m a GH & DAYS fan…I think he’d be a better Nathan and definitely look great with Maxie. Y&R’s gain!

    I’m very excited about this. I love Scott’s work, and have always wondered about Joe’s history with Avery. It’ll be nice to see how this all plays out, and how Joe will interact with the rest of the cast of characters. Bring him on!! I’m dying to see how this is going to turn out!

    …..or is he the new Adam?

    Don replied

    he is not the new adam he will be playing joe clark avery’s ex husband so no he is not adam.

    Dtmh replied

    I read the article but they’ve had casting before for one character and it was really for the surprise return of another character.

    Nancy replied

    I was thinking the same thing. Could they be fooling us into thinking it’s Joe, but it’s really going to be Adam?

    Reply

    Dtmh replied

    Yes, I believe that too and I think he would be a good fit for the role. I don’t know his age but he could pass for nic and Victoria’s younger bro unlike the last actor,but I did like him.

  7. su0000 says:

    He looks a bit young an too handsome to have been with Avery..
    But, perhaps it is just a good photo of him..

    I hope he is serial killer and spots Kelly.
    Y&R and mostly me needs some excitement, badly..

    So, is this guy under contract or recurring..? I think I like him..

    Are you crazy, Avery is beautiful and has good taste in men. Jessica Collins is a very pretty lady and a terrific actress.

    su0000 replied

    awww Johnny..
    I did not say she isn’t pretty or anything about her acting..
    (it’s her always grinning … LOL..

    and she is pretty and can act ..
    but I just dont see her and the handsomely rugged Joe as matching up ..

    Have to see them interact .. ya know, screen chem and all that stuff .. :)

    Darren replied

    I agree with you Johnny, Jessica Collins is very attractive and the lady can act. Jessica is 43 years old, wow she looks very young for her age.

    CeeCee replied

    No, su0000. Look him up. He just is a hottie in every picture, not in just this one. He looks a lot like my husband.
    I do agree with you; Avery is all wrong for him, as she was for Nick. She and Dylan are boringly perfect together.
    I also agree with Mary SF. Inasmuch as I simply salivate over Scott, Y&R is starting to look like Grand Central.

    su0000 replied

    CeeCee ..
    I agree! He is hot.. and-
    Dylan and Avery are a sedative .!
    They don’t do anything..
    She goes in the coffee shop they talk about nothing interesting she leaves and he fiddles with the coffee machine.. they talk, that is all that is going with them..
    Avery and Dylan do nothing = boring.. lol ..
    I can’t waste my soap viewing time them I FF through their conversation about nothing..

    At least- Seinfeld’s show that was ”all about nothing” was funny!

    well, then they shan’t recast Adam! If you don’t care for it, then it will not be done.

    Adam Newman will be back by the fall, mark my words Cameron Mathison will play Adam. This will happen. Cameron is sexy and a wonderful actor.

    Reply

    Harry replied

    Oh Good Lord, I hope you are wrong, Maria. Everything about Cameron speaks to his being the anti-Adam.
    They might as well cast Cameron as Jim Morrison.

    Chaz replied

    Hopefully not! CM is a decent actor but he doesn’t have the qualities needed for Adam….someone who can be vulnerable and yet be ruthless, vicious and scheming. I think if cast he would suffer the same fate as David Tom. And after that disaster I don’t think TPTB would want that happening again.

    jaybird369 replied

    Harry…TOTALLY AGREED!!!!! Cameron Mathison playing Adam Newman? HAHAHAHAHA!!!!! And…N-O!!!!! No No No No. Next…..

  10. Iakovos says:

    Seems Y&R is no longer the show Bill Bell created. So many new people. I always liked Avery though. Was glad Phyllis was given a family. Sad Avery and Nick could not last. Seems Avery and Dylan are the center couple now.

    New cast is easy on the eyes, for sure. A boy toy for Ashley?

    I’m supposed to believe that Avery cheated on this gorgeous, sexy hunk of man meat with average looks, boring, Dudley-do-right Dylan?! He better be a serial killer or something, otherwise that scenario would make no sense.

    jaybird369 replied

    Nikki…Oh, girlfriend…you are SO RIGHT ON!!!!! Any on-screen soap chick that would cheat on that V-E-R-Y S-E-X-Y A-S H-E-L-L Joe Clark with that dull-as-dishwater Dylan would clearly be OUT OF HER MIND!!!!!

    Nikki…your ‘sexy hunk of man meat’ comment TRULY MADE MY DAY…LOL!!!!! Thank you.

    Take care, Nikki. XOXOXOXOXO

    One question, why in the world would Avery ever look at another man, when she has this man at home. Another storyline that will make no sense, but he will be nice to look at.

    Mary SF replied

    Yes, it never a bad idea to cast a good looking guy on a show– I am sure they will find many ways for him to go shirtless lol—but you’re right without a story what is the point of bringing a new characters, they cannot make up for poor writing. And as for your question, I know you weren’t being serious, but to state the obvious—if sex was just about looks it doesn’t make sense, but marriage is about more than having a hot husband– no doubt Avery’s ex wasn’t meeting her emotional needs and Dylan did.

    Reply

    CeeCee replied

    Oh, I agree, Mary SF. Who would not admire a hot guy? I am married with two small children; that doesn’t mean a great looking guy won’t grab my attention…it’s human nature. But, being blessed with good looks does not a happy marriage make. One thing has nothing to do with the other. As you say, Mary, If the emotional needs are not met, there is no marriage…just role-play.

  14. Geena says:

    I wont get excited until I see him on the screen. Y&R has done such poor job with their casting with the exception of Gina Tognoni. I dont know his body of work either so we’ll see if he can make an impact.

    Reply

  15. Alan says:

    Thank you, Y&R!

    I was hoping for yet another new character to join the show and the best part is that this one will be involved with Dylan and Avery which means more screen time for that super popular couple and less for the veteran characters I enjoy.

    Hooray!

    Scott will be a very welcome addition to this show which has gotten very stale and has suffered from bad casting decisions of late.

    Reply

    Jimmy replied

    Oh boy, you’re telling me about those bad casting decisions! The only one they got right recently was Gina Tognoni as Phyllis, but this new Billy? Good lord, I was very willing to give him a chance, and granted it’s only been a few weeks, but I can’t stand him! He just isn’t a great actor, at least not for his part. If they brought him in as Stitch’s brother, I’d be okay with it, but not as Billy.

    I remember Scott Elrod from Men In Trees. I TOTALLY AGREE with CeeCee…WHAT A H-U-N-K!!!!! And…the dude can act, too!!!!! An idea: I think that Y&R should pair his character of Joe with Mariah. To me, that would be WAY MORE INTERESTING than a possible Dylan/Avery/Joe love triangle…BLECH!!!!!

    Until next time…D-E-U-C-E-S!!!!!

    Wow this dude is a pretty boy, He is a hot man. rumor I heard 3 days ago, is that Jon Hensley ex Holden Snyder as the world turns might be the new Adam Newman. I hope its true, I love Jon Hensley. He is very hot and a wonderful actor.

    Reply

    Chaz replied

    Hensley is too old to play Adam. Even pushing it and making Adam 40, Hensley is almost 50. Adam is SUPPOSED to be younger than Nick, after all.

    Johnny replied

    How old are you?? Lol. You sound like a 13 year old schoolgirl. You WAY overuse the word “hot”. Jon Hensley is pushing 50.

    Seems like Y&R is doing what GH has been doing, creating a whole new soap within a soap? Seems like the executives have this thought, out with the old and in with the new? Well, for one thing, the new actors are usually cheaper than the vets. Either way, lets hope Joe is written well and he can act. GH hired a “Hunk” [Detective West] and he cannot act past his looks! Stiff as a board! No emotions what so ever! Go Joe!

    Well, since Jack has moved on with Kelly maybe Phyllis will dally with her sister’s ex?

    I had the same thought—- but no pairing will work unless the writing is there and I fear these writers are not up for the challenge.

    Reply

    CeeCee replied

    That would be sweet irony, wouldn’t it, Chaz? Afterall, Avery dallied with Nick, Phyllis’s ex. Full circle…oh, joy…lol. Love your thought-process.

  26. Michael (not Fairman) says:

    Well, if you can’t write interesting, compelling stories, you can at least cast nice-looking actors, right (even if you saddle them with subpar material)?

    I don’t remember much about this guy from Men In Trees, but if he’d been a weak link in the acting department, I’d definitely remember–it was on the whole a well-acted, well-cast show, and he would have stuck out. (Oh, and well-written, too, by the way; hey, Y&R, good writing, you know, maybe you could try importing that aspect from Men In Trees too, while you’re at it? Please? Pretty please?)
