    Maybe he didn't like having to cut his hair? LOL

    Good luck to this fine actor; sorry but I could not grasp him as Jack's son even though his acting was good.

    I didn't care for him anyway. Loved the old Kyle...

    I didn't "get him" as Jack's son until I saw his resemblance to Diane's facial features. He and that actress have the same jaw and mouth, therefore, yes, he just took after his Mother.. I'm not liking the haircut though.

    I'm sorry to see him go He's my favorite guy on Y & R. I think he's good looking, loved his long hair (it looked so good on him & he wore it well!) & I also enjoy watching his scenes. It'll be sad seein him go. I did like the 1st Kyle but I like this 2nd Kyle aka Hartley Sawyer even better!

    I liked the 1st Kyle better but I wish him all the best. I wonder if they told him he was fired before or after they made him cut his hair. I didn't like his long hair (I don't like his new hair cut either) but if they made him cut his hair and then fired him that was bad.

    The other Kyle is so much better. This guy is not Kyle and his acting could use some help
