Okay, if this is true, we are so laying off Maria Arena Bell! CBS Soaps in Depth is hearing Wilson Bethel may be returning as the only thing good about the Great Doppelganger Caper of 2010, Kevin's (Greg Rikaart) dirty, sexy, intense half brother Ryder on The Young and the Restless. Bethel brought the heat to Genoa City from episode 1. Here's hoping Y&R finds a red-hot storyline for Ryder that doesn't involve his drippy sister.
It looks as if Kevin (Greg Rikaart) won’t have to worry about his brother Ryder moving in on his wife Jana (Emily O’Brien) for much longer. According to TV Guide Canada, The Young and the Restless’ Wilson Bethel has been let go by the show.
Chris Evans, brother of One Life to Live's Scott Evans, has signed on to play the highly sought after role of Captain America in Marvel's big screen release of the Captain America franchise, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Days of our Lives alum Jensen Ackles was also on the list, but is off for now because of scheduling conflicts.

A funny thing happened when The Young and the Restless introduced Ryder, the latest member of the soap's ever-expanding Fisher-Baldwin clan. For once I didn't flinch. In fact, I had quite the opposite reaction. Instead of bitching about "another Fisher-Baldwin", I found myself intrigued by one Wilson Bethel, the intense, young actor playing the role of Kevin's (Greg Rikaart) nefarious half brother.
Recently I spoke with Bethel, who gave his breakout performance as Cpl. Evan "Q-Tip" Stafford in the Emmy-winning 2008 HBO miniseries Generation Kill. We chatted about what it's been like making the jump from primetime to daytime. We also talked about his artistic family, including author mom Joyce Maynard, and his love for a little soul.
Daytime Confidential: I have to admit, when I usually hear about a new Fisher-Baldwin coming to The Young and the Restless, I am less than enthused, but I have loved Ryder from day one! How did the role come about?
