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!
