Cameron Mathison Clears Up Rumors: "There Is Absolutely NO Indication That I Am Going To Y&R To Play Adam Newman!"

Over the past several weeks, and in the rumor mill, has been that Cameron Mathison visited the set of the CBS soap opera, The Young and the Restless. While there he auditioned, or was taking a meeting, to be considered as a recast for the role of Adam Newman, last played by fired star Michael Muhney.  Still other reports surfaced that said Mathison may have visited the soap in regards to another role.

Early this morning, Mathison tweeted a response to all of those fans who have been inquiring of the former All My Children (Ex-Ryan Lavery) heartthrob, and current entertainment news correspondent and actor if he was indeed in the running to be the next black sheep of the Newman clan.

Cameron posted this statement on Twitter:  “Just to clear up some rumors … There is absolutely NO indication that I am going to Y&R to play Adam Newman. Thanks for all the support tho.”

So, for all intent and purposes, it looks like Mathison becoming Adam is just plain false, but could he still be in the running for another part in GC?   Share your thoughts below!

With all due respect to Cameron, I had grown to hate Ryan by the time AMC went off the air. He just didn’t convey emotional complexity very well, which made all the stories about the Lavery family painful to sit through (thank goodness for the ff button!), and I found the Rylee pairing incredibly boring. I think he makes a better TV host than actor and from what little I’ve seen of Y&R’s Adam, he wouldn’t have been good for that role. I do find the wording suspicious, though. He doesn’t deny being up for a different Y&R role, does… Read more »

I so agree with your comments and essentially stopped watching AMC because of the “Ryan” show. He is definitely not a good fit for a character like Adam, IMO.

I agree, in that I also prefer him as a TV host and reporter. My favorite
pairing with him on AMC was with Gillian……after that, I just didn’t care
that much what his character was up to. I hope Mathison finds other
success in hosting/reporting venues, rather than in Genoa City!

I never saw him act on a soap. I saw him on DWTS and wanted to throw my TV out the window!

I totally understand and agree with you on this one, because, as a fan of All My Children since the mid 1970s, Ryan was, IMO an A@#HOLE to Greenlee or Kendall, and when he first arrived in Pine Valley, he was arrogant, egomaniacal, cocky, and rude. And no, Y&R doesn’t need another recast!

His overwhelming denouncement of this means that he is the new Adam Newman.

Mathison isn’t the level of actor Michael Muhney is. Adam Newman became a force on Y&R due to Muhney’s talent. Anybody other than Muhney is a lost cause for Y&R.

I SOOOOO tired of hearing ABOUT ADAM. REALLY WE HAVE HAD SO MANY YEARS OF NEW ACTORS AND MICHAEL MUHNEY IS NO STAR HE WAS OKAY BUT NOT THE ONLY ACTOR. ( DRUCILLA )VCTORIA ROWELL WE STILL WANT BACK MORE

Adam Newman isn’t a newbie though. He’s Victor’s son who we saw as an infant and a toddler and now he’s a grown man. He is the son of one of the most essential characters on the show. Nothing newbie about Adam.

You’re right, of course.
I wasn’t clear in my post.
I meant I wouldnt want this actor

no matter who they put in as Adam Newman it will never work, Michael Muhney owned that part and unless he comes back Y&R will tank worse than what it already has. Bottom Line.

If he doesnt go back to Y&R I pray he goes to GH as Jason. He would be great!

NO HE DID NOT OWN THAT PART. SORRY THEY MADE ADAM A SNOOZE ONCE THEY BROKE HIM AND SHARON UP. CHELSEA HAD NO CHEMISTRY WITH ADAM AND I WAS GETTING TIRED OF THEM

He was probably just visiting one of his numerous friends and former co-workers (from AMC) that now work at Y&R. I don’t think it would be a good idea to put him as Adam because there would be too many comparisons to Ryan and Annie (with Missy Claire Egan).

He was there to interview Cady McClain for Entertainment Tonight. The interview aired a couple of weeks ago.

Cameron was interviewing Caddy McCain about her new book on set at Y&R for Entertainment Tonight. Some idiot in the soap press saw him there and made up the rest of the false story of him being the new Adam Newman. These soap rags are as bad as the Enquirer or Globe.

I’m glad to hear it. I hope this is true! Michael Muhney owned the role of Adam. I want to see him back in it. If they try to replace him, it will be an epic fail for the show.

Never thought of him as Adam, but now I think it would be great. I loved MM, but he is NOT coming back, so Cameron would be great! Although Y & R is a real cluster right now, haven’t watched in months.

Maybe it will turn out to be fact … Michelle Stafford denied for the longest time that she was going to be Nina on GH … and then what happened? She IS Nina!

Cameron would not be a good recast Adam but he would kinda of make a good recast Jason on GH because he kinda of looks like the EX Jason who is now Dylan on Y&R

Timmm

Cameron is not that older than The original Jason they look like the same age so that would work out if Cameron would of been up to it Steve Burton(EX Jason was Born in 1970)while Cameron in 1969 so they are around the same age so that would work so cameron is not too old to play Jason.

Yeah…and Stafford also said her going to GH was a rumor before it happened…

Exactly, he said there was no indication he would be Adam, but he didn’t deny auditioning for the role– so all he is really saying is he hasn’t gotten the gig yet– that they may or may not hire him, he doesn’t know. But I bet he was there having a discussion about it– otherwise he would just come out and say I am not going to be the new Adam because I didn’t auditioned for it.

Y&R is making another huge mistake by attempting to replace Michael Muhney, can’t be done..

CBS is looking for someone to volunteer for a Kamikaze mission
(to replace Michael Muhney..

They should just let the Adam charcter be dead..

Good, he wouldn’t have been a good Adam. The only other actor besides Michael Muhney that I can see playing the role in Trevor St. John.

This is the absolute first “rumor” I’ve seen about this. So where are all the other “rumors” that are supposed to be floating around? Is this how you get a “rumor” started?

Anyway, NO, just NO. Cam would NOT make a good Adam. PERIOD!

Daisy Day

I love him! I would love to see him in Y&R as Adam Newman. I doubt they would hire back the actor that was dismissed because of improper behavior.

Good Lord, Cameron doesn’t have an ounce of darkness or complexity about him/ They might as well get Ryan Seacrest to play Adam.

I noticed he didn’t say he isn’t going to Y&R, just that there’s no current indication he would play Adam. I’d still like to see Trevor St. John play Adam; he’d be fantastic! Wonder if he’s available.

Barbara from Atlanta

I noticed that as well. “No indication” that he was taking over the role of Adam. That seems like a good denial that he won’t be in that role but an implied confirmation that he is in talks about being on the show in another part.

He doesn’t say absolutely that he is NOT in discussions about a job with Y&R. If that was that was the case, his comment is strangely worded.

Hope he gets another role on Y&R. He is a good actor and very easy on the eyes!

Acting is tough. Especially if someone steps into the role and makes it their own. Ask Chris Egan and David Thom. Two good actors who have tried or attempted to fill Billy Miller or Michael Muhney’s shoes.

“There is no indication…”? That doesn’t sound like a denial to me. It sounds a lot like he can neither confirm nor deny that he may or may not be up for a job that may or may not be Adam Newman, which makes the tweet meaningless.

Oxford Dictionaries
indication;
A sign or piece of information that indicates something:
There is no sign, indication, evidence, truth that indicates anything…
In other words..
It is all fan imagination/gossip with no truth or fact – it is BS……………..

Kristi
Guest

Thanks. I know what the word means. But indication can only come from those in the know, not the fans, and all he’s saying is that those in the know have not given any sign, evidence, hint, or suggestion that he is joining the show–yet. It doesn’t mean he isn’t, and maybe he’s not, just that they haven’t indicated that he is.

LOL he seems to be saying; where in hell do the fans get these wild notions from, there is no such thing happening.. Some fans and their accusations and rumors staring must drive the soap stars crazy LOL He hasn’t a clue as to where or how the false rumor got started, but it easy to see how it spreads; the soap boards lol .. He is not going to any soap, he has too much going career wise and needs a lot of wide open time to do it all.. being tied down in a soap does not seem… Read more »

Bring Michael Muhney back or just kill Adam Newman off. No one can replace Muhney. He made the character into the force on the show. Why else did Braeden hate him so much? The old German was jealous as hell. Everyone knows that.

As far as we know since CBS said NOTHING about MM’s work behavior, he is innocent. Bring him back and give him a raise!

I think CBS said plenty on how they viewed Michael Muhney’s work behavior when they declined to pick up his contract. That’s kind of the ultimate statement.

There is also no indication that he possesses the acting chops to pull off the role of Adam Newman—at least not based on what I saw during his years on AMC. That does not mean, of course, that TPTB would not be stupid enough to try it. I too find the wording of his tweet to be rather curious. I’d almost wish they’d try it, for the entertainment value, since the backstage goings-on continue to be far more interesting than what anybody is putting on the screen–but I don’t wish that kind of grief on Cameron Mathison, who from what… Read more »

BINGO! His fans will be upset you feel this way but its not as much a knock on Cameron is it is a compliment to Michael Muhney. He is an amazing actor and he was THE next in line to step into the legacy of Y&R as in Eric Braden. MM character would have been on this show for 30 years!

He should come on Days of our lives. With major actors leaving, Days is going to have to keep trying some new things to keep some of us coming back to see what is going on. If they do not do this, they may fall into the doldrums.

I’d rather he came to General Hospital as the recently thawed Jason Quartermaine. I think it would be great if nu-jason had no memory whatsoever of his life as Jason Morgan. The character would then have come full-circle.

I have to agree with others – I watch AMC for years (and Years and years) and to be honest Ryan was kind of a one layerd character, to whom the show devoted too much air time – I got kind of tired of the Ryan-Greenlee-Kendall triangle, it was played to death. I don’t dislike Cameron at all, I just didn’t find him to be a terribly interesting actor to watch.

I would love to see Cameron Mathison in either one of the Soap Operas: Young and Restless or General Hospital. It was wonderful that he played in some great Hallmark movies and a couple Lifetime movies. Would love to see him get a full-time role on some show…..

Mark Consuelos Exits ‘Riverdale’

Last night, All My Children alum, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo Santos) made what appears to be his final appearance for now on CW’s soapy drama, Riverdale.

Consuelos departed Riverdale as a series regular on the season 5 finale, after coming on to the show in its second season in the role of villain, Hiram Lodge.

Riverdale executive producer and showrunner, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, shared with Deadline a statement on Consuelos contribution and run on the series: “From the moment Mark joined us, he was up for literally anything, a hundred percent committed to making Archie’s life a living hell. And what’s funny is, Mark couldn’t be more different from Hiram. A classy pro and the sweetest guy, always looking out for everyone. We wish Mark the best and hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Hiram Lodge.

Consuelos offered up these sentiments in a statement on his Riverdale exit: “First and foremost, I would like to thank Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa for this incredible opportunity. Never before has playing a character that was so bad, felt so good. Huge thanks to the Riverdale fandom, to the brilliant crew and amazing cast, whom I consider dear friends and family.”

So, will you miss seeing Mark on Riverdale? Elsewhere, still no word on the “Pine Valley” reboot in which Mark and wife, Kelly Ripa, are two of the executive producers of that many All My Children fans were hoping would come to fruition. Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Beloved Soap Stars Left Out of 2021 Primetime Emmy Broadcast In-Memoriam Tribute

Last night, during the presentation of the 73rd annual Primetime Emmys broadcast on CBS, the annual In-Memoriam segment brought with it so many households names in a year that saw so many legacy talents and more pass away.

The tribute was performed by Leon Bridges and Jon Batiste to Bridge’s song, “River”, and as the images of the departed played across the screens from Cloris Leachman to Cicely Tyson, to Ed Asner to Michael K. Williams, and more, it was clear that several of the major late daytime soap stars were not included in the on-air tribute as well as other omissions.

Now granted, we know they will all be a part of next year’s 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in-memoriam segment, but still these actors were a part of this community and not only appeared on the soaps, but other shows as well.

Those that daytime fans noticed were not included were: Michael Nader (Ex-Dex Dexter and Dimitri Marick, Dynasty and All My Children) Stuart Damon (Ex-Alan Quartermaine, General Hospital), Ray MacDonnell (Ex-Joe Martin, All My Children) and Jay Pickett (Ex-Frank Scanlon, Port Charles).

From primetime MIA action were: Michael Constantine (Ex-Room 222), Tanya Roberts (Ex-Charlie’s Angeles), Director, Richard Donner, writer Larry McMurty, and DMX, to name but a few.

However, the Television Academy did list all of its members who died on their website in the In-Memoriam section, because due to time constraints, they could not possibly showcase everyone.

What do you feel about the omissions of Nader, Damon, MacDonnell, Pickett, and more from the In-Memoriam tribute? Let us know in the comment section, but first watch the segment.
