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!

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

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.

Nanci

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.

M Amoss

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.

Timmm

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

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.

Sally O

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.

Barbara

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.

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!

patricia

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

Too old and goofy looking!

patricia

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.

PatF

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

Mary SF

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..

Jimmy

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.

SZima
SZima

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.

harry

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

Becky

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
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.

Kate A

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!!!!

Timmm

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.

Kristi

“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
Kristi

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.

su0000
su0000

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..

Barbara

Please don’t bring back MM!!

Whitney S

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.

Timmm
Timmm

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.

CERTAINLY WOULD BE NICE TO SEE CAMERON BACK ON TV…I SEE HIM OCCASIONALLY ON EARLY MORNING TV..WOULD LOVE TO SEE HIM ON Y & R.

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

Monica.

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.

Michael (not Fairman)

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.

Timmm
Timmm

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!

Rj

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.

Rob

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

Timmm

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.

Linda

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…..

8 Years To The Day Of All My Children & One Life to Live Being Canceled; Still Considered By Many Worst Move For Daytime

It’s hard to believe that 8 years ago today on April 14th, 2011, the soap world, its fans, and the cast members, learned of the heartbreaking news that ABC, in one swift move, decimated its daytime line-up when they announced the cancellations of long running series, All My Children (which would end at its 41st year), and One Life to Live (which would ends its run in its 43rd year).

At the time, ABC announced it would move to more lifestyle/entertainment series to replace these dramas.  In its place came The Chew and The Revolution, neither show is still on the air today.  Executives at that time pointed to research saying that times are changing and that their decision was “guided by extensive research into what today’s daytime viewers want,” and blame, in part, “the changing viewing patterns of the audience” for the axing of AMC and OLTL

Then ABC Daytime President, Brian Frons had joked to Deadline about the big announcement that he: “Pre-entered the witness protection program prior to today’s events.”  He added that “The demise of the two venerable soaps was actually a year in the making.  A year ago, we started to look at our projections where the ratings for the soaps would go.  When those projections came in pretty discouraging, the network began to aggressively develop replacement shows, 15 of them.  Four of the 15 were picked up to pilot: The Chew and The Revolution and two others, a talk show and a dating show. Originally, the idea was to cancel only one daytime drama.  The way the ratings developed and the pilots turned out, the ratings developed negatively and pilots developed positively, so we decided to make a bigger shift.”  Of note is that when it went off the air, One Life to Live was in third place among its competitors in the ratings.

The press release that came with the cancellations stated: “To honor the core, passionate audience and their rich history both shows will conclude in a manner that respects their legacies and the longstanding hopes of many of their viewers.”

Following the cancellations daytime reeled. The mainstream was sure it meant the endings of the soaps, period.  However, four shows illustrated that is not true at all.  For Days of our Lives, General Hospital, The Bold and the Beautiful and The Young and the Restless all remain, and still whether they are up or down in their numbers/ratings, they remain relevant and important to the enduring daytime viewing audience.

Sadly, as with any shows, the end of ABC’s AMC and OLTL meant loss of jobs for so many working in front of the camera and behind the scenes. One Life was the last soap opera in production in New York at the time.  AMC was already being shot in LA to cut costs to save it.

Still in 2019, if you venture on to social media, especially Twitter, you see fans constantly missing its stars and the towns of Llanview and Pine Valley, wanting this wrong rectified.  Although Prospect Park tried to revive the show with their online versions, eventually after legal battles that went on for a few years, ABC now retains the right to these properties,

The good news is that many favorites from AMC and OLTL have found success and been hired on other soap operas, bringing their followings with them, whether it be on-screen, or in the writing, producing, directing or crew departments.

So, do you think the loss of AMC and OLTL consolidated daytime and made the remaining shows stronger so they would not be touched or canceled?  Do you think ABC should try to mount a resurrected AMC and OLTL or an amalgamation of the two?  Do you remember where you were when you learned the two soaps were cancelled? Was this the worst misstep of all-time for daytime? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.

George R. R. Martin’s “Leak” Of New Hulu Series WILD CARDS Featuring Eden Riegel, Thorsten Kaye. and Greg Rikkart

April Fool’s Day started off with a bang today when Eden Riegel (Ex-Bianca, AMC) posted a photo of herself with Thorsten Kaye (Ridge, B&B) and Greg Rikaart (Ex-Leo, DAYS)  in a very intriguing image.  See above pic!  As it turns out, it’s said to be from behind the scenes from some leaked footage of the upcoming Hulu series, Wild Cards.

The premise of Wild Cards is based on the sci-fi anthology series edited by George R. R, Martin, best known for writing the “Song of Ice and Fire” novels, on which HBO’s Game of Thrones is based.  Riegel’s husband, Andrew Miller is the showrunner attached to the upcoming series.

On Martin’s website he teases the set-up of the “leaked” video clip:  “This was not supposed to go public.. Everybody (Well, everybody that has been paying attention knows that we are developing two Wild Cards as a series for Hulu  Andrew Miller has taken the reins as showrunner, a writing staff has been hired, and they have been hard at work for months.  What was NOT supposed to be known is how far they’ve come.  Not only have some scripts been finished, but the first show has gone into production and has been shooting.  That was supposed to be a deep dark secret, however.   We wanted to surprise the world. It’s hard to keep secrets in Hollyweird, however.  And now it appears that some of the rough footage has been leaked by person or persons unknown”

Meanwhile, Riegel sent out a series of tweets: “Hooo boy…cat’s out of the bag! Fans, please don’t judge our show based on these leaked videos!! The effects are going to knock your socks off. And my costars, and , are doing the best work of their lives!”  That was followed by, T”hank you for the chance to work with you on your first foray into soaps! I am humbled and honored. We won’t let you down.” And then, “I’m probably not allowed to share this with all the NDAs I signed, but damnit I’m just so proud of the team!  think we are breaking new ground for soaps. So proud to work with you!”

Now below, check out the Wild Cards “leaked footage” and let us know if you think of the …. um … drama! Comment below.  And one more thing … Happy April Fool’s!

WATCH: All My Children Reunion On Strahan & Sara

On Monday’s episode of ABC’s Strahan & Sara, the show welcomed several stars of the beloved All My Children for a reunion, of sorts. Joining hosts Michael Strahan and Sara Haines were Susan Lucci (Erica), Walt Willey (Jack), Cady McClain (Dixie), Jacob Young (JR) and Jill Larson (Opal).

While it was wonderful to see the stars from Pine Valley again, it was also a painful reminder that this network, ABC, canceled the show, and had put in its place – The Chew, and now Strahan & Sara – since canning the series.   In fact, as you will see on the clips below, many of the crew who work on this talk show were once the crew for All My Children.

During the segment, Susan Lucci was tested to see if she remembered all of Erica Kane’s wedded names.  Later, Walt Willey and Susan re-created the final scene of the ABC version of All My Children between Erica and Jack, where Jack walks out on her.  However, this time, they have Jack changing his mind and coming back to Erica and sealing their relationship with a kiss – a moment of closure that never happened (since the show moved to online via Prospect Park).

In addition, Cady McClain and Jacob Young re-created the infamous Dixie “dying from eating poison pancakes” scene, as JR watches his mother die, only this time she lives.
