Michael Muhney, the former Adam Newman of The Young and the Restless, took to Twitter this morning upon the news that Justin Hartley was finally revealed to be his successor in the pivotal role on the CBS soap opera.

Fan fervor for Muhney to return in the role has gone on for months since his ouster from the series back in December of 2013.  Muhney recently tweeted to his fans he was also in talks to return to the series, but that it did not pan out.

Since Muhney is attempting to have fans, who wished for Muhney to return, to not bash the incoming Hartley, he sent out the following tweet:  “I really like Justin Hartley. He’s a good guy. We really get along well. I wish him the best. Be kind to him. #goodguy”

What do you think of Michael’s tweet to his Twitter followers on the naming of Justin Hartley as the new Adam?  Share your thoughts below!

Obviously his two cents was needed and appreciated, Justin appreciated it and this site wrote a whole article about it which you responded too. Lol. Michael showed class and Justin showed humility….it’s nice traits to have.

Your response to his gracious and kind gesture is petty and nasty and it comes,not surprisingly,from a place of ignorance.

NO NEW ADAM!
I do not want an Adam recast!
Y&R recasts have been horrible!

Y&R is gutted of all that once made it great.. It is empty..
and hardly realizable..

There is no replacing Adam / can’t be done..
Some characters should not be rebuilt/replaced ..

No matter how good an actor Justin Hartley is- he is not Adam ..
being handsome or a good actor does not mean he would be a good Adam..

this suck .. Adam should have just been let to RIP ..

I couldn’t agree more. They should have killed off his character and we could just go through another Nikki binge for the (lost count of how often we have to see Nikki fall off the wagon)

Justin Hartley is 6’3” tall !! (way off from my adam..
The/is women are under 5’5” .. LOL that will look weird..
and he looks young, too young and pretty looking..
Nope, not going to work ..

MM is Adam … (bottom line…

MM is 6’2. Not that way off.

Right, moreover, Didi, this guy looks a lot like MM.

As MM said,”Be kind.”

su000, one thing we learned from Alan Ladd and Jean Harlow from Red Dust is that with the big screen, as well as the small screen, height is irrelevant if you’ve got charisma, presence and talent.
In other words, size doesn’t matter.

Harry-
yah.. the short one stood on a box to even out the height so they could look in each others eyes etc..,,
and Harry, size always matter lol ohh yah!! 😉
they will look silly next to each other.. he is a very tall man
melissa had better bring her box .. ahaa!..

Actually, I was heartbroken that MM was not returning. But, when I heard they had cast JH, I thought that can work. I think MM was very gracious in his comments and I too wish Justin well. I loved Justin in Passions and Emily Owens, MD. Just hope people will give him a chance and hope MM shows up somewhere in the near future.

Geoffrey-Martin Cyr

While I didn’t catch Hartley on PASSIONS, I certainly did enjoy his work on both REVENGE and MISTRESSES … so I am cautiously optimistic he’ll do well in this role! (He held his own against evil-mama Victoria on REVENGE, so that should have trained him well to go toe-to-toe with Victor, just sayin’!)

Sydney Morrissey

I don’t know Justin but I am pretty sure he will be a wonderful replacement for Adam. That being said, I will miss MM in the role terribly, he did a masterful job filling the role of Adam. I wish both of them good luck. MM*****

My suspicions will be realized. MM was close to going back to Y&R, but certain performers hated the idea, so he’ll end up at the other/better Sony soap…Days of our Lives. I’m waiting for confirmation.

Patrick

I soooo HOPE this

Nicole
Nicole

Wasn’t it Sony who fired him, not CBS. If that is so then there is no way he is going to Days.

As for the “negotiations” I doubt it, Justin had to have been in the works for awhile before the announcement today. That is probably why Logan said that there were not any negotiations last week because by Hartley was a done deal.

4ever DAYS
4ever DAYS

It does not matter who fired him. The soaps have a long history of bringing back actors they fired. That said, it’s more doable in the MM situation because DAYS is not Y&R.

Neither EB nor JFP run DAYS…a soap running on story, not ego.

Father Time

In due time.

If that’s true I might have to start watching Days.

Nikki

Nothing in the future said on his twitter yet but hopefully soon. Bet the ones that didn’t want him back was Summer (Hunter King) & Victor ( Eric Braden). They really have the show’s best interest at heart & don’t give a damn about what the fans want either. Hopefully now that King got her 15 minutes in the spotlight and a story line once its over they can drop her by the waste side where she belongs.

I like this boy but he has big shoes to fill. If he can’t fill them Y&R will be in the same spot as they were with the Billy’s. Too many changes to deal with. New Billy’s, new Phyillis and now a new Adam.

I want MM back, who by the way showed more class with his tweet than JFP will ever have. She is the Witch that has destroyed our show. MM will pop up on GH I believe. JFP needs to be terminated for her insensitive and arrogant treatment of actors and fans alike. Karma will strike this blind untalented poor excuse for an executive producer. I personally can’t wait. Good Luck JH and MM.

Michael Muhney is a class act. I am a huge fan of his and I love this talented actor . He was the reason I was drawn back into Y&R. I have not watched Y&R since Michaels last scenes. I gave it up but I do follow every thing written about MM. He will always be Adam Newman to me. They should not have replaced him if they got rid of MM.
I am not familiar with this young man’s work, Justin Hartley however, I wish him luck because he has some pretty big shoes to fill. Michael Muhney was one of those actors that brought Adam Newman to be a household name. I cannot fathom seeing another face playing the part of Adam Newman. A brown eyed man at that, Adam Newman had beautiful Blue eyes. You can change the face but never the eyes.
Michael has handled this whole situation with class and he is a phenominal gorgeous actor who deserved so much better. I will follow him wherever he goes and it will be straight to the top. Michael is not just a pretty gorgeous face, he has all that and the talent to back him up. He can play any role and make us beg for more. We love you Michael. Cannot wait to see you in the Christmas movie and whatever your next project may be. Your fans are behind you 100%. #TeamMuhney all the way.

Chris F,

Adam Newman is not a real person. he is a character. The characters eyes will be the color of the actor playing him.

And this is important WHY?

I can’t even think of any other way to put it. What a mess Y & R is now. But at least we know so we wont have to see the hands and hope to see MM back again. Michael your fans are behind you and will follow your career where ever you go and I agree it will be the top. As for Y & R why stay with a sinking ship!

Joy Margetts

I’d love to see MM come back but it is obvious it isn’t going to happen. I wish him great success in what he does next. Have to ask. Why do some people make such nasty comments ? So unnecessary.

Um he was never returning. There was no meeting or calls and needs to quit lying to his fans. He is so full of it.

Timmm

I understand how frustrated we all are over the recasting of Billy but give NuAdam a chance. If he is bad, he is bad. Dont pick on his looks, his height, his past resume. Give him a chance. MM moved on. Lets all do the same. Good luck Justin.

harry

Beautifully put, Timm. Thank you.

Fred

I for one won’t be giving him a chance because Y&R has lost me as a viewer. I have no interest in watching all of JFPs recasts. I am a fan of the actors she forced out so she could hire her FOJ friends. Never wanted any recast and love the former actors. They were amazing in their portrayals of the characters that I grew to love. Only because of their extraordinary talent. They made the worst script look great. All that is left are horrible scripts, cheap sets, and bad acting. No thanks.

Timmm
Timmm

Thats your right Fred. I just dont see how a “Fan” could quit watching the show. I realize it has been horrible and some great people have left but it is starting to get a little better.

Right! Said Fred

Unfortunately nuAdam will be having a major story with nuBilly, and if nuBilly’s scenes with Stitch are any indication how he acts in confrontation scenes, I am worried. I am was so looking forward to the meeting of this two characters after what went down in the car, and now I don’t believe it is going play well at all with the new Billy. I think nuAdam has the acting chops for the job, but that is only half the equation. If his scene partner is weak, the whole thing won’t fly. I just wish they had a strong Billy– creating the new generation of Newman Abbott feud—-is a must for this show, but I will keep an open mind hoping if nuAdam is a strong actor he might pull out better performances from his scene partners including nuBilly.

Timmm
Timmm

Thats a good point. Every scene Billy is in is horrible. I think thats one of the reasons Billy hasnt had scenes with Victor. Either Eric doesnt want to act with him or JFP realizes he would get eaten alive!

I love Michael Muhney. He did a fantastic job of playing Adam Newman and bringing vitality & honesty to every storyline Adam was involved in. Michael’s energy, wit and kindness allowed Adam to leap into our hearts and sympathize with this extraordinary character. All the best to Justin Hartley. You have big shoes to fill!

JoAnn

To every artist out there who feels discouraged because they have not booked that role or gotten that verse picked up in a track just remember that our line of work is not the easiest but if you truly love it then you know that if you continue to PUT IN THE WORK one day you will be blessed.
