CHRISTIAN LEBLANC NOT LEAVING Y&R

A rumor gaining traction online has Y&R’s Christian J. LeBlanc, who plays Michael Baldwin, leaving the show to take over the role of Kevin on GH. (Kevin was last seen earlier this year in the form of Anthony Starke, who pinch-hit for Jon Lindstrom while Lindstrom was shooting TRUE DETECTIVE.) But a Y&R spokesperson emphatically states, “No. That isn’t true.” Whispers that LeBlanc would exit Y&R have been circulating since Michael was diagnosed with cancer last year and the actor mingled with the GH cast at the Daytime Emmys. Shrugs a Y&R setsider, "He’s still very good friends with Billy Miller [ex-Billy; Jason, GH] and Michelle Stafford [ex-Phyllis; Nina, GH]. Maybe that’s where the confusion began."
