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!

        A thank you to Michael Muhney for the well wishes. Very much appreciated. Thank you.

        Gee, Justin just made you two look petty as hell.

        Good luck to you Michael. You’re a great man to wish him luck after what they did to you! That’s alright, everything happens for a reason! You’ll get something better!! Good luck again! Nobody will ever do as good as you and will ever take your place!!

      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 ..

        How bout,”Fun! Fun! Fun!” or if “You don’t like it turn off the TV?” Or finally, “People who watch a show they hate and then complain about it need therapy and they are bitter and have no lives”?

    • Nikki

      August 19, 2014 at 2:33 pm

      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)

    geez
    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…

    • Didi

      August 19, 2014 at 12:34 pm

      MM is 6’2. Not that way off.

      • Harry

        August 19, 2014 at 1:42 pm

        Right, moreover, Didi, this guy looks a lot like MM.
        Give this guy a chance . It’s not his fault that MM left Y&R.
        As MM said,”Be kind.”

        August 19, 2014 at 4:02 pm

    • Harry

      August 19, 2014 at 3:42 pm

      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.

      • su0000

        August 20, 2014 at 12:01 am

        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!..

        August 19, 2014 at 7:10 pm

        Nikki, I didn’t say the show was good, I said I liked his work on Passions and Revenge. Harry, I agree with your comment.

      August 24, 2014 at 4:43 pm

      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.

  5. Geoffrey-Martin Cyr

    August 19, 2014 at 11:13 am

    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’!)

  6. Sydney Morrissey

    August 19, 2014 at 11:39 am

    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

      August 19, 2014 at 11:59 am

      I soooo HOPE this

    • Nicole

      August 19, 2014 at 7:52 pm

      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

        August 19, 2014 at 10:40 pm

        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.

    • Nikki

      August 19, 2014 at 2:43 pm

      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.

    August 19, 2014 at 4:53 pm

    Sigh. Y&R will never be the same. Too many changes. I want MM back and BM. But nobody cares, so we might as well save our breath. Poor Justin Hartley though. He doesn’t deserve the fan hate he’s going to get.

    Like MM or not, he’s certainly being more gracious than Ron Moss and his wife.

    August 19, 2014 at 6:38 pm

    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,

      August 19, 2014 at 9:31 pm

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

      • Nikki

        August 20, 2014 at 5:41 am

        And this is important WHY?

    • Nikki

      August 20, 2014 at 5:47 am

      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!

  17. Joy Margetts

    August 19, 2014 at 6:55 pm

    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.

  18. peaches

    August 19, 2014 at 7:29 pm

    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.

    • Chris F,

      August 19, 2014 at 9:31 pm

      AMEN!!!!!

    • Nikki

      August 20, 2014 at 5:38 am

      And you know this because you work for Y & R. He was seen going into meetings with top notch people. I don’t think they we’re playing cards.

    August 20, 2014 at 9:50 am

    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

      August 20, 2014 at 2:52 pm

      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

        August 21, 2014 at 6:34 am

        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.

      • harry

        August 22, 2014 at 2:23 pm

        Right! Said Fred

    • Mary SF

      August 20, 2014 at 3:07 pm

      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

        August 21, 2014 at 6:37 am

        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!

  23. Larcenyfresh

    August 20, 2014 at 10:32 am

    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!

  24. JoAnn

    August 20, 2014 at 4:13 pm

    I really miss Mike but do wish him well on what ever he does. As for the new Adam, well they have to give him a chance.

    August 23, 2014 at 7:05 pm

OLTL Alum Renee Elise Goldsberry On Performing Her Showstopper “Satisfied” In ‘Hamilton’ Premiering On Disney+ Today

We loved her as Evangeline Williamson on One Life to Live, and the Broadway world loved her in her Tony Award-winning role as Angelica Schuyler in the musical Hamilton, which today bows on the filmed version on Disney+.    Of course, we are talking about the fabulous Renee Elise Goldsberry who has talent abounds.

In Hamilton, Goldsberry performs a showstopper “Satisfied” as Angelica makes the ultimate sacrifice giving up the man she loves Hamilton played by Lin-Manuel Miranda) to her sister for her sister, Eliza’s (Phillipa Soo) happiness.

Now taking the version of this memorable moment in the theatre and bringing it to life on film also makes for an exciting performance and piece of creative work.

In an interview with the Los Angeles Times out today, Renee talks about executing this number in the show just right: “There are things that are technically challenging about that number: on top of the words, there’s the movement and the fact that we’re doing the previous number in reverse the whole time. It was a lot of things to juggle, but that was never hard, that was all intellectual. Even the rap was relatively easy. The most challenging part to sing is that final toast.This is an extremely well-written song. Every word is crafted to analytically take this woman on an emotional, life-altering decision for these three lives. That decision was such a monumentally painful and beautiful thing to do that by the time I’d get to that moment in which she makes that decision, I was so devastated that it was hard to sing that toast. She’s conflicted because, clearly, she wants to stay around this guy, she recognizes his brilliance, but she gets that Eliza is the one. So I imagine this woman having to give this toast to this community, in spite of the pain she felt.I was always worried that somehow or another, I wouldn’t be able to live up to the brilliance of the end of that song because emotionally, I was just trying to manage it. It took me maybe until Broadway to feel OK about it.”

When asked how she felt about seeing “Satisfied” in the movie version of Hamilton available everywhere Friday on Disney+, Goldsberry added: :Seeing it from the audience’s point of view for the first time, I realized there was a whole ‘nother level of storytelling that was going on, separate from me. I mean, Howell Binkley’s lighting design!  And Andy Blankenbuehler’s brilliant choreography, which I could always only see in my peripheral vision. It’s a huge number with the entire company onstage just killing it and basically turning back time with their bodies, and I’m standing in the middle, talking out like a deer in the headlights to the audience about a burst of things that I have to grapple with immediately. I’m very grateful that he made my job much easier.”

Watch a clip of Renee’s performance in the film version of Hamilton below.

Now, let us know if you are planning to watch the highly-anticipated Hamilton over the fourth of July weekend via the comment section and if you are excited to see Renee in her award-winning winning in it?

B&B’s Supervising Producer, Casey Kasprzyk Shares: “Just Finished Viewing Our First Produced Episode Since Starting Production Back Up!”

In a tweet late on Thursday, the supervising producer of The Bold and the Beautiful, Casey Kasprzyk, shared his enthusiasm at completing the first major hurdle for the soap going back into production during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Showing a viewing copy on disc of the first new episode produced for B&B in months, Casey said: “Just finished viewing our first produced episode since starting production back up! So proud of Team Bold & Beautiful. Great shows airing soon”

The disc had airshow number #8321 on it, and a question mark as to when it will make it to air.

The fact that The Bold and the Beautiful is the first daytime drama to get one new episode completed is a step forward amidst the spike in COVID-19 cases in Los Angeles County and the state of California.

Now soap fans will have to wait and see if General Hospital and The Young and the Restless begin their productions in the middle of July; as last projected by both series, or if there will be further delays due to the ongoing crisis for the safety of everyone involved at the shows.

So, excited to learn Casey’s news that there is a new episode of B&B on the horizon for viewers to see? Comment below.

‘Strahan, Sara and Keke’ Canceled by ABC; Show Aired In Timeslot That Once Housed ‘All My Children’

No matter a network tries to do, replacing All My Children, which ran for 41 years on ABC has remained as everyone that follows the world of daytime drama knows, problematic.  Now come word via Page Six that Strahan, Sara and Keke has been canceled.

The show hosted by Michael Strahan, Sara Haines and Keke Palmer if you recall, replaced the foodie show, The Chew which ran for seven seasons and was the first show to air in the timeslot that belonged for over four decades to All My Children. 

Back in March of this year, Strahan, Sara and Keke took a break to make way for ABC’s News  Pandemic: What You Need to Know, a daily coronavirus report anchored by Amy Robach, Dr. Jen Ashton and sometimes TJ Holmes.

However, because the show did well in that two-week experimental run it morphed into GMA 3: What You Need to Know.  The new version of the show also talked about hot topics in the current news cycle, as well.

ABC’s Catherine McKenzie began producing the “GMA3” show four months ago and the network officially announced her as Executive Producer of the program on Thursday.

While ABC has yet to officially announce Strahan, Sara and Keke is over, a spokesperson told Page Six: “We’re proud of our teams at ‘SSK’ and ‘GMA3’ and how quickly they transitioned to producing a daily show to give people the news and information they need during an unprecedented pandemic, and conversations continue about how the show will evolve in the months ahead.”

It appears that Strahan, Sara and Keke won’t be returning; the future as many of their staff have transitioned over to ‘GMA 3’ with producers from ABC News Live, (the streaming division), helmed by McKenzie.
