How Does Adam Newman Come Back To The Y&R Canvas? Justin Hartley Fills Viewers In!

Hands Newman will soon turn into Justin Hartley! That’s right! The very popular actor takes over the key role of Adam Newman on-air on the upcoming November 5th episode of The Young and the Restless!

In a new interview with TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan, Hartley gives a small glimpse of just how the new look Adam Newman gets back into the story …  having had complete plastic surgery of course!

As fans know, Adam has been in hiding and spying on his wife Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) who is getting deeper and deeper into a red hot relationship with Adam’s nemesis Billy Abbott (Burgess Jenkins).  And from the sounds of it and from what fans have heard rumblings of, Adam ain’t working alone, and according to this feature he is not moving around himself so well, to which Hartley said, “He (Adam) seems to have a little army, which means he’s still got his hands on some cash.  I’m assuming these people don’t work for free.”

Hartley also told TVG the set-up that gets Adam back in story high-gear:  “Chelsea finds the surveillance cam he put in their son’s nursery and she disables it. Now he can no longer be a creeper. He can’t spy on his family anymore so, even though he’s not fully recovered from his accident, he must get back to town quickly, especially after he hears Chelsea talking about Billy moving in. The control freak in him can’t stand it. So, basically, Adam had a five-step plan to get back his life that would have played out over the course of a couple of years, but now he’s jumping right to Step 5.”

As for how the writers are going to clean up the mess that Adam was responsible for the hit and run accident that killed little Delia last year, Justin responded: (Laughs) “I”m leaving that problem to the writers! There’s definitely damage control to be done. ”

So what do you think of what you know of the story of Adam being re-introduced to the Y&R canvas in the form of Justin Hartley?  How do you think the writers will sustain the character, and keep him out of jail from running down little Delia? Share your thoughts below!

Since we are doing the plastic surgery bit how about Adam destroying his dad and taking over Newman Enterprises. Poetic justice! Smart move the plastic surgery probably be a lot easier for people to accept him especially me since we have had three recasts in a year.

Actually 5: Kelly, Phyllis, Adam, and if you count them both, then Billy twice. And so far, I like Cady McClain better than Cynthia Watros as Kelly and Gina is doing a great job as Phyllis. As for Burgess, I’ve said this before, he is absolutely terrible as Billy.

But I really do have hope for Justin as Adam. Michael Muhney was great, just like Michelle Stafford was, but seeing how well Gina is doing as Phyllis makes me think Justin can do great as Adam. Hopefully this is true!

Your right I forgot about Kelly as far as Billy I am in the minority but I think they should have given David Tom more time. Burgess Jenkins just looks to old for the part of Billy but from what I hear he is there to stay.

I dont think Adam killed Delia…he thinks he did but it was someone else…maybe a drunken Maureen did it…she was actually in GC long before now and was in hiding until recently because of what she’s done…maybe not but this is one way to keep Adam out of jail!!!

Kay, yes! David Tom was fleshing out the role of Billy when they 86 him. As I said before, no one play Billy Miller but Billy Miller. But they can play Billy Abbott. I feel sorry for Jenkinds–feel like he has been placed in an impossible situation. If they can get him away from Chloe with whom he enjoys zero chemistry, and maybe pair him up with Kelly, things might improve for the actor. He does seem to be loosening up especially in his scenes with Jack. But they have got to get him away from the brain deadening effect… Read more »

@harry do you mean Chelsea? The word I am getting and I have my sources that a certain actress refuses to get off the nipple of Billy Miller he moved on she needs to be a grown up and do her job make it work! Trust me a conspiracy was going on to get Tom out the door the guy is a good actor and a team player he won an emmy for gosh sake also! In a word they screwed up go look at Tom’s twitter account a hot picture of him it could have worked! Patience is a… Read more »

I agree that someone else killed little Delia. Whether this mystery person is aware of having killed a child, in perhaps a drunken stupor, remains to be seen. As you suggest, jimh, Maureen seems to be the candidate for such a tragic end to cute Delia….she certainly fits the part! NuAdam will return with falsified documents and will seek and land a position with the new established Baldwin/Clark Law Firm. Adam Newman is, afterall, an attorney….graduate of Harvard Law School. Since Michael has been diagnosed with cancer, he will need excessive amounts of time at his disposal for treatment….he will… Read more »

jimh (leave it to beaver), do you happen to recall that there was a flash of a blonde woman driving a black SUV on the same back road Adam was driving down at about the same time? At first I thought it might be Nikki, then later I thought Kelly, but now I believe it to be Maureen. My money is on either Maureen (larger bets here) or Nikki, either of whom had been drinking, though. Considering there was no blood, no damage to his bumper or even undercarriage, and just a small piece of his turn signal light broken… Read more »

(whacking head) Yes, I mean Chelsea–I get those CH names mixed up. Thank you for the correction. I know to whom you are alluding. I think this actress, this character, is incredibly dull and the only time she lit up was when coupled with Miller. He can light anything up that one. He made her and everyone around him look good but as you said, it’s time for her to put on her big girl’s pants and step up to the game. Otherwise, I’d like to see David Tom’s sister come back and reprise her role as Victoria Newman. Now… Read more »

I feel like both Y&R and GH are doing the plastic surgery story for the same reason – if Steve Burton ever decides to go back to GH, they can say the current Jason is an imposter brought in by Helena, Victor, Jerry and whoever else is in cahoots with them, and the real Jason (SB) is being held captive somewhere. On Y&R, the initial reason for the plastic surgery might be for fans to accept Justin Hartley as Adam easier, but I think the idea is that if the show ever manages to work out a deal with Michael… Read more »

He is a foot taller than Billy/Burges, in all the pics he is a head above Burges and he is tall… Justin is a great actor.. that does mean he will be a great Adam.. TBTB waited a year, to bring Adam back.. there is reason for that.. They hope his millions of fans, like the ones who paid for the plane to fly a banner over CBS and so much more, that after a years time they would be accepting to a new Adam, hoping… Read more »

Debbie Downer su0000 (lol), I think JH will do well as Adam on Y&R. I think this is a good recast for them and I feel they need it. He’s a good-looking guy w/a strong presence, which I think is needed if you are going to go toe-to-toe with Victor Newman. This sounds silly, but he has a good, strong voice as well. Of course, to each their own, but one of the reasons SBurton’s acting gets on my nerves is because I don’t like his whiny, wimpy voice. He sounds like a boy, not a man. I’m picky that… Read more »

Hi Laurie.. Thing is- So many are praising Justin as being a great Adam, and he has yet to portray Adam.. Johnny Depp is a great actor but he would be a terrible Richard Nixon .. Burgess was hailed as being a great Billy replacement ‘before’ he performed , and he is a terrible Billy.. (even Victoria doesn’t like him ahhhaa! Adam will be just as hard to replace as Billy was/is .. The new Kelly/Dixie Coony is a fail, she is total Dixie, someone needs to make her poisoned pancakes lol ..

I don’t think he will return initially as Adam – with charges still pending (were he discovered alive).

Rumors were started and perpetuated or begun by cast mates. Only cast mat acting decently was Sharon Case! Michael and his wife were betrayed by cast and family they considered friends.

Yes Justin will be terrific as the new Adam, Gina Tagnoni is the bomb. She is doing a wonderful job as the new Phyllis. Gina is a beautiful woman, and the lady can act. I would watch her read the phone book. LOL. I NEED Phyllis in my living room every day. Also I love Meredith Baxter as Maureen, sign her to a contract. Maybe Nikki can have a fling with Maureen.

My two cents that’s worth a nickel lol..
Meredith Baxter/Maureen will soon be gone..
As soon as she gets drunk, really drunk, she, the drunk Maureen will blurt out that she ran over a little girl..
I believe (and I will be correct) it was Matueen who killed DD.. 🙂

I figured plastic surgery would be involved and Sally Kellerman, as well. This is a great move. He comes into GC and no one knows who he is including Victor. Maybe since Sharon and Nick are rumored to be cooling off maybe Adam turns to Sharon for help? They gave Jason a new face at GH and it has worked out quite well. How could you go wrong with a face like Billy Miller!

I like Mr. Hartley. Seems like the recasts are part of a reboot, no? Same Newman characters but aged up/down with actions forgiven/forgotten to keep the game pieces with new rules.

I miss the old Y&R but know these shows must evolve. I am tired though of unpunished actions and failed attempts at redemption. For once, I want something to stick.

Darlene

I read and listen to what Y&R fans say on FB pages and what I read is that Burgess Jenkins is NOT cutting it as Billy Abbott. I have seen some clips and I agree. Burgess Jenkins is blah, acts wooden and does NOT gave chemistry with Amelia Heinle (Victoria) or Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea).

Denise

Totally agree. B.J. does not work right as Billy. He looks old enough to be her father and acting is bland.
Just like on Y&R new Ridge does not have appleal like Moss did or as good looking. The story lines with the women really make my skin crawl, him going after his way younger sister-in-law was jyst creepy the kissing her. Yeck

I think Maureen talked Ben into covering for her, because she killed her husband. Kelly has always been mad at her brother; she wouldn’t be if he covered for her! That’s why I don’t think she ran over Delia. Two killings would be too much to believe.

love the new Billy Abbott ( Burgess Jenkins). I think his chemistry with Chelsea is perfect. I think some people find it hard to let go of the past. Yes Billy Miller was a great actor and he played his role well but he left on his own free will as did Phyllis (Michelle S.) I did not care much for the new Phyllis sitting up in bed screaming, but from the day she walked into the church I saw Phyllis again and now that is who she is. I thought Michael Tom was a terrible Billy although he was… Read more »

Your grammar and correct use of possessive punctuation…..after my own heart. I also agree with you about the Tom siblings. It baffles me as to why DT was let go…perhaps he left by his own volition…regardless, this new guy is not working for me. Believe me, I am so tired of giving him the benefit of the doubt. He just does not fit into the Abbott clan…he is the elephant in the room…sticks… Read more »

It may just be me, but-
I can not see Billy and Victoria as a couple, it is done-gone..
Looks to me- that victoria doesn’t want him to kiss her, no way no chem, it is creepy..
she seems very offish to any physical moments with now Billy..
I do feel that ‘Victoria’ does not want to have intimate scenes with ‘Billy’, not now..

I can not imagine them in an intimate scene, I’d need to FF … lol

anyways-that is just me, how I’m picking up on it ,, dunno..

Sorry, I meant su0000….lol. Screaming kids!! I also wanted to add ; do you really think Maureen will be gone that soon? Yes, I do agree that she ran over Delia ( very disturbing ), and her departure does make sense. But, not befor this ‘thing’ with her son comes to light. I believe it was either jimh or Harry who believes that Maureen actually killed her husband and not Stitch. It is a sound supposition with which I agree. My point is, I think this cloud of suspicion over Stitch’s head needs to evaporate to dispel the stigma associated… Read more »

Hi folks! Just discovered this great website .. I have been a Y & R viewer since episode #1. I love so much about this show, have watched through all of its ups and downs .. and at the ripe old age of 73, I have no intentions of stopping ~ for any reason (excepting my demise of course.) Looking forward to the Adam story line though I miss MM horribly. New Kelly and new Billy ~ yuk. Now, if you will excuse me .. I have some catch-up reading to do here!

I am so with you, Maria. I just love Justin & his gorgeous face, hot body & of course his excellent acting. What a great idea for Maureen to be the driver that hit Delia! I don’t know about her & Nikkei together (can u imagine Victor walking in on that) but drinking & telling that she did it would b awesome.

Since Gabriel died saving Adam, Sage had Adam’s face as they can’t arrest him & now he… Read more »

This came out incorrectly. Sage had Adam surgically altered to look like Constance’s

I really liked Adam before & I love the new Adam. He’s a looker & very believable in the part. Adam is really not responsible for Delia’s death. Billy left her in an unlocked car in a strange place at night. Adam stopped & checked that he had hit nothing & then went on.Why would he even think for a second that some little kid would be in the grass out there? If anyone should be charged it should be Billy for his reckless behaviour & neglect.That aside, I think Justin is perfect & I hope Chelsea will be ok… Read more »

Yes, everyone would have noticed immediately that his voice was identical to the old Adam’s
unless he had surgery to make him sound like Gabriel. Pretty sure that this is not possible.
Oh well, that’s why I like the Y & R. I can forget about little details like this.

Well, I just had to write again. This time, it’s my take on what should happen. Here goes. Since Constance said Victor was responsible for Gabriel’s father committing suicide, is it possible that Gabe’s father found out that Victor was Gabe’s real father, and not him. That would really be an interesting story, then that way, Gabriel (Adam) would still be Victor’s son!!!! Or, if Constance knew that Victor was really Gabe’s real father and she was hiding it; could that be the reason she hated Victor so much. So, either way, Gabriel (Adam) is STILL Victor’s biological son. That… Read more »

Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos’ Latest Project In Development At Hulu

If former All My Chldren stars, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos (Ex-Hayley and Mateo) are not busy enough with a morning talk show, television roles and producing projects, here comes word of yet another from them.

Now the lovebirds latest entry into a limited series from their Milojo Production entity is in development at Hulu.  Based on Siliva Moreno-Garcia’s best-selling horror thriller novel Mexican Gothic, Milojo acquired the rights to develop the fiction fantasy book for television in a competitive situation, according to Deadline,

In story in the novel, Mexican Gothic follows Noemí Taboada, a young socialite who travels to the Mexican countryside and the mountains of Hidalgo in hopes of rescuing her cousin, who has recently married into a reclusive mining family, after receiving a frantic letter in the mail. Noemí seeks to unveil the family’s violent and menacing secrets, but her confidence is quickly threatened and there may be no escaping the walls of her strange, new home.

“We feel like we hit the literary jackpot, and cannot wait to bring Silvia’s gorgeous writing to life, together with Hulu,” Ripa shared on the news.  While Moreno-Garcia added, “I am excited to see the novel come to life and to meet the talented, diverse crew and cast members that will take us on this journey.”

So what do you think of Kelly and Mark’s latest acquisition turned soon in to a limited series? Comment below.

GH Faves Finola Hughes, Ian Buchanan, Brooklyn Rae Silzer, Marc Anthony Samuel In New IGTV Series, ‘Enter Exit’

This week, General Hospital’s Finola Hughes (Anna) and some very good friends and acting partners debuted in a new IGTV series, directed by Hughes amid the COVID-19 pandemic, and it’s a thriller! What else would we expect from the woman who plays super spy Anna Devane on the ABC daytime drama series.

The IGTV (Instagam’s longer video application) series is called, Enter Exit, and there are 11 episodes, and the first one dropped on Monday.  It is  written by TV scribe Matt Boren, and also stars some of Port Charles’ longtime favorites that include: Ian Buchanan (Ex-Duke), Brooklyn Rae Silzer (Emma) and Marc Anthony Samuel (Felix).

Hughes told SOD how she was inspired to come up with the concept for the show:  “I started to think about, if you’re in lockdown, what would be a narrative where you could act in a vacuum, basically? I first started thinking about what my character would be — a retired (government) agent. And then there’s some reason that I’m retired. And I started to think about stationary shots and walking into your closeup and all those kinds of things. I left (the rest) with Matt; it was basically, ‘Whatever he writes, we’ll do.’ And I just sort of concentrated on how, feasibly, we could do it.”’

Boren, who has been an ardent viewer of GH from its hey day, shared on working off Hughes seeds of an idea to what Enter Exit is about: “In a sense, it’s a local detective thriller that starts out small — and understandably so as season one takes place during the pandemic. However, what we seed throughout these first 11 mini-episodes hints at a show that longs to be on a much larger, more global scale. We were absolutely inspired by ’80s GH — the WSB, the espionage and larger than life stories that were so thrilling, and through Devane/Scorpio/Lavery/Donnelly/Jones, so grounded. Throw that in with some Killing Eve, X-Files and (this will make sense down the line) Stranger Things, and you have a recipe that might be pages away in our cookbook.”

Now check out episode 1 below featuring Hughes and Silzer and make sure to follow Finola’s IG account for all-new installments of Enter Exit.

So, what do you think about the concept of the series? Excited to see more? Let us know via the comment section.
