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 he?

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 soooo agree with you!

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!

You are such a tasteless person.

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.


Don’t care who it might be. This show does not need another newbie, period!

I totally agree!
Please no more new characters!

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
to play a new character on Y and R.

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!


and why are you screaming?

How does this stuff get started?

You kidding, who?
Soap fans, the ones that are………………………….? lol

Thank goodness.

Sweetie Cameron is hot hot hot, Cameron will be on the young and the restless as Adam Newman.

Hot if he is leaning up against a stove! Besides, he doesnt fit the role of Adam as we know him.

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.

All My Young & Restless Children would be a great new title for this show had another former AMC actor had joined the cast…lol

He definitely is not the right actor for Adam….thank goodness!

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.

I love Cameron, I hope he becomes the new Adam. He is very sexy and a terrific actor.

Oh, please NO!!!

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

Too old and goofy looking!

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.

Maybe he’ll be Dylan’s brother!

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!

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.

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!

Anyone who thinks mm is not replaceable is one of the
Obsessed. It’s acting!!!!

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
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……………..

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 to be what Cameron is looking for..

Please don’t bring back MM!!

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.


Let me see…the idea of Cameron Mathison playing Adam??? I’m sorry but NO THANK YOU!!!!! Next…..

Oh my God, please no. Ryan Lavery killed AMC with all his airhogging. He wil lkill Y&R too. He should stick to hosting and being a telervision reporter.

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 I understand is a nice enough guy.

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.

Hopefully its true, he isnt an bad actor but he by no means can portray the complexities of Adam Newman.

Thank God! He would have made a horrible Adam!

He wouldn’t be a good actor. He’s more the playboy/funny guy role.

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…..

According to Jacob, the production start date is April 1st. He added on the premise of the film, “It’s very Agatha Christie sort of ‘Knives Out’ without having a hundred million dollars to shoot it, but still will be a lovely film nonetheless.” Young said the plan is to finish all principal photography by April 17th.

Maurice Benard Reveals All My Children’s Lee Meriweather and Daughter’s Alzheimer’s Diagnosis

At the beginning of the latest episode of General Hospital star, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos) State of Mind series, he delivered some heartbreaking news with a purpose.

Kyle Oldham, the daughter of former All My Children star, Lee Meriwether (ex-Ruth Martin), who previously made a guest appearance on Benard’s show, returned for a new interview which will be coming soon.

During their conversation, Oldham shared that her beloved mother has Alzheimer’s. Sadly, according to Benard, Kyle also revealed she has been diagnosed with the disease as well.

Maurice expressed, “We talked about her mother and having Alzheimer’s and it was an amazing interview. And then Kyle said, ‘I gotta tell you something. I have Alzheimer’s.’”

Apparently, Kyle has agreed to come on State of Mind, periodically as the effects of Alzheimer’s take a hold of her to help educate others. “We decided that she was gonna come in … she was gonna call me and tell me as she progresses,” Benard shared. “She was going to come in again so the audience could see with their eyes what Alzheimer’s does to someone.”

Benard’s guest for this current episode of State of Mind was Vernee Watson (Stella, GH), who along with Maurice, was part of the Alzheimer’s storyline on the ABC daytime drama series that saw Mike Corbin (Max Gail) eventually pass away.

As for Lee Meriwether, not only is she known for her role on AMC, but also for her roles as Catwoman in Batman: The Movie, and The Courtship of Eddie’s Father, and for the television series, Barnaby Jones, the New Andy Griffith Show and The Munsters to name only a few.

In soap operas, Meriwether was cast in The Young Marrieds years prior to her time on All My Children where she replaced Mary Fickett in the matriarchal role in the Martin family. She played the role from 1996-99, 2002-03, and 2007-11.

Meriwether’s daughter, Kyle Oldham, has been an actress and spokesperson herself through the years. She appeared on The Price is Right for over 14 years until she couldn’t anymore after going through multiple surgeries in her adult life.

You can check out the full episode of State of Mind with Maurice an Vernee below.
