It looks like The Young and the Restless lovers aren't losing Ryder just yet. Wilson Bethel, who has booked a lead role in The CW's Hart of Dixie pilot opposite The O.C.'s Rachel Bilson, tells Soaps in Depth he's going on location to film the pilot in April, during which time Y&R will pre-tape his scenes. I don't know about y'all, but I cannot wait for this show. My Summer Roberts from Newport Beach playing a doctor, complete with uber talented, young Brad Pitt-lookalike Bethel getting horizontal with her? Sign me up, CW. Sign me up!
Oh hecks yeah, The Young and the Restless' 2010 breakout star Wilson Bethel (Ryder) has booked the lead male role in The CW's Hart of Dixie pilot. Deadline is reporting the Generation Kill actor will play a "gorgeous flirty, bad-boy, Southern fisherman" who lives nearby Zoe (Rachel Bilson). Best. Casting. Ever!!! Thanks, SoapOperaFanatic for the tip!
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.
