    All grown up.

    It looks like 'soap opera rapid aging syndrome' (SORAS) has struck again at "The Young and the Restless." According to The Hollywood Reporter, twenty-something actor, Blake Hood, has been tapped to take over the role of Kyle Abbott, son of Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman). Hood is best known for playing bad boy Mark Driscoll on "90210," but has also appeared on "Desperate Housewives," "Cold Case," and most recently on "2 Broke Girls." He was also in the movie "Easy A."

    Soaps.com offers congratulations to Blake, who will begin appearing onscreen as Kyle on Friday April 27. Are you happy that Kyle has been aged? Let us know by voting below.

    He has a bit of a "Daniel" look about him. Would make a nice addition to the show for the sake of the younger set - not many choices there. Totally weird that Kyle goes to "boarding school as a pre-teen and then less than 6 months later returns as a 20-something with a college degree. That must be some powerful water in Europe!!!

    I thought he looked like Daniel too. Now he's the right age. He should have been up there with Abby anyway.

    Looks like Mike Muhney's younger brother.

    Why age Kyle by almost 10 years? He was only a bereaved child a few months ago, the trial for Diane's murder hasn't even happened. I hate it when they do this.

    Its about time, he is suppose to be the same age as Abby. When they brought him back with Diane it would have been more believable had he been at least 16-17 instead of 10.

    No different than sending Nick/Vikkie/Noah or anyone else off to boarding school and bringing them back as young adults.

    Kyle should be about the same age as Abby anyway. It is about time for him to grow up don't you think. I have been watching for years and wondered why Abby was all of a sudden 21 and Kyle wasn't. In my opinion it is very good to make a change with Kyle.

    The writers evidently do not think that the fans notice these things.

    I say keep the little actor who last played Kyle and cast THIS new actor as Daniel, get rid of the one who is looking more and more like a strung-out bum you would see on any inner-city street corner.

    Dougmedia1, I could not agree with you more regarding your comment of the new Kyle looking like Daniel and replacing the present Daniel and letting him play him. The present Daniel looks like a bum who should be on the streets. Terrible hair/clothes. He has needed a haircut for a long time now. I KNOW THE HAIRDRESSERS on the show could CUT IT!! It is ridiculous, he just looks nasty!!
