|Scott Elrod joins The Young and the Restless in October.|
Joe is the ex-husband of attorney/cooking show host Avery Clark (Jessica Collins).
Joe and Avery's marriage fell apart when Avery began her affair with war vet Dylan McAvoy (Steve Burton), but she has always felt guilty for betraying her husband.
According to a show rep, "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 debut on Y&R in early October.
