Is The Search For An Actor To Play The Role Of Y&R's Adam Newman Back On?

Fans of The Young and the Restless who have been hoping that the recent “sighting” at CBS studios reported by Soap Opera Digest may have meant that fan favorite Michael Muhney is definitely returning to the role ofAdam Newman … may have to “hold their horses!”

Now comes word via Nelson Branco that a casting breakdown has gone out again that looks to be a search for Muhney’s successor in the pivotal role of the black sheep of the Newman clan.

According to the breakdown: The show is looking to cast the role of Aaron. It’s  a contract role, with the length of contract negotiable. Starts late July 2014.

The casting notice goes on to say, “Caucasian Male. Mid 30’S to Very Early 40’S. A LEADING MAN who is SEXY, Appealing and VERY charming. He is smart! A businessman who can out maneuver even the shrewdest. NOTE: Actor MUST be AT LEAST 5’10 and have NO ACCENT PLEASE. MAJOR CHARACTER. MUST CONSIDER ACTORS WITH STRONG CREDITS.”

So, do you think Y&R is still searching for the next Adam?  If so, and it cannot be Michael Muhney, who else would you cast who could possibly fit the bill?  Let us know!

Does it really matter? All this means is now everybody will be discussing what happened in December with Muhney. This show has been on life support with me for a year I kept thinking they would turn it around . I do not know why they think they need this character the only person on that show JFP cares about is Steve Burton.

I’m with you on that– Y&R had such a large fan base that even with losing viewers over a number bad regimes in recent history it still can hold it’s number one spot. But eventually those numbers will not hold if something isn’t done now to stop further erosion. As I said in my post, they can hire top quality actors, big names but if the story telling is weak and the writing is lame it won’t matter. They can cast and recast all they like, the real weakness is the writing. I bet if the stories were engaging viewers… Read more »

The show does need Adam, Billy and Phyllis. Their connection to the various other characters on canvas drive stories. Something the newbies don’t do. But you’re right! If there isn’t writing to support them it will still fail. This writiing regime has half the characters OOC, rewriting history on a whim. Who’s to say they know who are Phyllis and Adam? They’ve already butchered Billy as if all those years at RS never happened which has nothing to do with DT’s performance.

The fact is that it’s been six months and the majority of fans want Michael Muhney back. Sure there have been his detractors, but these are the same people that have bashed him for years. Muhney developed Adam Newman into a powerhouse character through his own talent and abilities. Just like Braeden defines Victor, Muhney defines Adam. Sometimes certain actors are able to connect with an audience beyond the normal levels. Muhney did it. Sure, TPTB at Y&R can recast the role, but they’ll never REPLACE Michael Muhney with the fans…and here’s a newsflash for CBS & Sony: Your show… Read more »

I agree. No one will be able to play Adam the way Michael did. This show is losing so many viewers and GH is about to pass it in the 18-49 coveted viewers. JFP strikes again. I think it’s a big mistake firing David Tom too. He has great chemistry with Chelsea.

I agree JFP totally screwing up Y&R. David Tom was growing on me and puff hes gone. She didn’t even tell him herself. Cady is a great actress but would be better as Phyllis. Gina would be better as Kelly. Isnt Phyllis older than Kelly???? Its the Steve Burton show now & his character is a bore.

Why would nelson branco post that SOD cover with only the muhney headline then, especially if he is his friend? I think it was a way for him to give us a clue without revealing the surprise. Also, Muhney has again become MIA after a couple weeks of thankful and happy tweets. Sounds like he may be too busy “working” to tweet. Or at the very least, they could be going through negotiations with Muhney and put out the casting call as a bargaining tool more or less. They do it all the time, waste the time of other actors… Read more »

Victoria Rowell/Drucilla dug her own grave and still keeps digging with the constant social media ranting about how racist Y&R is. I for one would never let her near that studio again the actress is like someone else I know who will remain nameless and no not speaking about MM it is never their fault. With every thing that has gone down over there concerning MM I would fall over if they ever brought him back. I do not think EB,MTS or a lot of others would stand for it.

Honestly are we having this discussion again?? I think this the third time we were asked who should be the new Adam, or at least it feels like we have talked this out so many times. Unless MM is coming back I think the character should remain off screen for a longer time– too many recasts and new faces as is. They left Phyllis in a coma for over year before bringing in a recast– Adam needs to be gone for more time, because even if they bring in Bradley Cooper to play him, I doubt another recast will help.

I feel like the Michael Muhney “news” that Digest released was a publicity ploy set up by CBS. They know that, not only does Muhney have a strong fan-base, but that, because of the TMZ rumors, publicity, bad or good, helps ratings. It’s sad, because I love Michael Muhney and he is so talented and really dominated the role of Adam, but I doubt he’ll actually be back. Good luck to whatever actor fills his shoes though, because it won’t be easily done. I just feel like Billy, Adam, and Phyllis (even with a beloved soap veteran like Gina Tognoni)… Read more »

If TPTB aren’t smart enough to bring Michael Muhney back, then they deserve the backlash of all-time they’ll get for an Adam Newman recast. It they thought the rejection of David Tom was bad, they ain’t seen nothing yet. The fact is, Michael Muhney created the character of Adam Newman. Yes, Chris Engen established the role as an adult, but Muhney defined the role. Certain actors put their brand on a role and Adam Newman is Michael Muhney. Nothing else will satisfy the audience. Billy Miller established Billy Abbott and David Tom couldn’t continue the role. This is just the… Read more »

I could do without Adam, but if they must recast I think Trevor St. John would be AMAZING in this role. That said, they should have waited at least a year to recast IMO for several reasons.

TSJ not only works as Adam because of his talent, looks, age, experience, etc., but he also was a successful recast in a role that according to fans “could never be recast”. I was a HUGE fan of Roger Howarth’s Todd, but loved TSJ as all the characters he portrayed on OLTL, including Todd. He would make a great Adam.

Someone at CBS/Sony should get a clue about Y&R problems. There is one person who destroys soaps, her name is J. F. P . She took down more then a few older soaps that got canceled and put GH on life support before she left. As for Micheal M. I wish they would bring him back with Billy Miller. They were the only two good actors I cared about on the show. If the power that be, don’t take action soon, I don’t want to see another soap go off the air.

Agreed. I’m not quite sure I understand this “cult of Muhney”. Y&R has always been a character driven ensemble show. Daytime shows used to not show the actor names or do a montage of actors in opening themes exactly for the reason that these shows are supposed to be about the characters and their stories, not the actors/personalities who portray the characters who act out the stories. Over the past years a small yet obviously vocal minority has taken over the message boards to voice support for actors like Miller and Muhney. Not quite sure I understand. It is my… Read more »

I am one of many that won’t return if Muhney does not return. Team Muhney is huge. If MM doesn’t return Y&R will go down in ratings and will die another death in the soaps.

to say goodbye. I have never thought an actor
was not replaceable until MM’s portrayal of

The whole situation makes it impossible for me to root for Michael Muhney’s return. Sure, I loved him as Adam–he fleshed out a character who was darkly nuanced and complex. He is a brilliant actor. However, if he is guilty of these allegations I cannot in all good conscience scream for his return.

Soap Smarts: How Daytime Dramas Are Using Ingenuity To Get Back Into Production During COVID-19

Daytime dramas seldom get the credit they deserve, and now they should be getting further credit for being the first back into production as the coronavirus pandemic continues to rage on, and trying to implement new ways to keep their trademarks love scenes, intimate moments and two-person scenes somehow looking in tact; even though it will be far from how it was done in the past.

In the story from the Associated Press The Bold and the Beautiful EP, and head writer, Brad Bell – who’s soap was the first one back into the studio – commented on how the show is utilizing mannequins, or real-life significant others to help pull off close contact love scenes and how it is rather groundbreaking. “We feel almost like television pioneers all these years later because we’re the first ones out, blazing new ways of producing the shows with the current safety standards, and we’re getting the job done. It’s very exciting.”

When B&B scripts written pre-coronavirus were reviewed in preparation for shooting during the pandemic now, originally all the cinches and smooches were cut. But Bell found a solution whereby a remote actor recites lines as their on-camera scene partner responds in a “low, intimate voice” and engages in “beautiful, yearning eye contact” with an off-camera doll.

As far as the soapy embrace or lip-lock, B&B cast member Katrina Bowden (Flo) has had her husband and musician Ben Jorgensen stand in for her on-screen love interest, Darin Brooks (Wyatt) since returning to taping new episodes.

Photo: JPI

Days of our Lives EP Ken Corday noted to AP:  The “learning curve” is steep. Before the pandemic, “we were producing eight, one-hour episodes a week. That’s basically 40 or 50 scenes a day.  That’s going to be basically impossible to reopen, so to speak, at that pace. We’re going to have to be more careful. So will there be five shows a week, or more? Yet to be determined.  It will certainly cost more.”

B&B and now Y&R which heads back into production next week, and the others soaps, will be using the company called Reel Health, which launched in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to serve the entertainment industry, and hires medically trained workers to monitor sets and enforce protocols developed by a company epidemiologist and in accordance with industry and government standards,

Alicia Rodis, a veteran intimacy coordinator who helped the actors guild develop guidelines for taping scenes of romance and simulated sex. shared: “Finding ways to put romance on the screen is inevitable and necessary.  At the end of the day, intimacy isn’t going anywhere. Physical intimacy is a part of the human experience. And we’re going to have to find a way to be able to continue to tell these stories, even in extraordinary circumstances.”

So, what do you think of how soaps are tackling taping episodes in the new normal to give their fans a sense of all that they love from their favorite daytime dramas during COVID-19? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
