Fans of former The Young and the Restless star, Michael Muhney (Ex-Adam Newman) have been anxiously awaiting news of when they can see his guest-star turn on the new ABC drama, The Good Doctor.

Well, wait no more. Muhney announced via Twitter it said to air next Monday on October 23rd at 10PMEST/9PMCST.

In story in the episode entitled, “Point Three Percent” – While in the exam area of St. Bonaventure Hospital, Dr. Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore) encounters a young patient who looks eerily similar to his deceased brother, Steve. After discovering his parents have hidden his diagnosis from him, which they believe to be cancer, Shaun struggles to understand why he doesn’t deserve to hear the truth about his own health.  Muhney appears as the young patient’s father.

But while Muhney is excited to promote his emotional performance in The Good Doctor, he tweeted late yesterday that he was stung by a bee in the face! We wish him a speedy recovery.

Now after the jump watch next week’s episode promo for The Good Doctor, and let us know if you will be tuning-in to watch Michael’s performance in the comment section below!

I love this show but then Highmore is a great actor I am glad MM is getting work again.

Muhney needs to get a agent and press on put the past behind and go for it.

I agree!

Would LOVE to see him back on Y & R!

I would too!

Helen and Blake…ME THREE!!!!!

I tuned in and I couldn’t put ”Norman Bates/Freddie Highmore out of mind lol
I didn’t see a doctor I saw Norman..

Freddie Highmore was absolutely awesome in the series Bates Motel as Norman, so yah I see Norman ..

It will be great to see MM, once again.
I can only hope he will return as Adam Y&R ..

Y & R, BEING HIM BACK ALREADY

Agree!

I agree. He was soooo loved by his fans.

Thanks for posting this Michael! I wanted to see Michael on this show and now I will know what day to watch. Great promo also. I hope Y&R brings him back as Adam.

Oh that is so Awesome! We are tuned in to see Michael MUHNEY as I have never watched the show but am going to make sure I do October 23rd! I am still a long time watcher like 35 years of watching Young and the Restless and still hoping that show will come to their senses and het Michael Muhney back as Adam! I can’t wait to see you!

Looking forward to seeing Michael Muhney again. Miss him.

Have missed MM so much and looking forward to seeing him on TGD which is a great show by the way. Pray that something positive comes from MM’s performance and good things start happening for him. Can hardly wait to see next week’s episode!

ONE OF THE SOAPS NEEDS TO EMPLOY THIS FANTASTIC ACTOR….I REALLY WISH HE WOULD BE BROUGHT BACK TO Y&R….ADAM NEEDS TO COME BACK AND NO ONE BETTER THAN MM……

Love this show. This actor shows so much emotion. Do not care for the flashbacks, from his childhood. I have to FF when they are operating, but I love most of the characters, including the neighbor girl. Wonder if anything will develop between them.

Love the show but even more excited to see Michael Muhney in it. I was hoping he would be cast as a regular not a guest but oh well…i will take what I can get…I quit, like many many others, watching Y&R after his undeserved firing and had hoped he would return there. but agai their loss. here’s hoping he gets back on to regulary appear on more tv he is a fantastic actor.

I hate to say it but i cringe at the the mention of MM’s name. Inevitably it’s followed by a volley of bring him back to Y&R posts. I think the character will return but not with that actor’s face. I’m also surprised they haven’t ONCE tried to bring in a new Drucilla. Lawsuit i guess. And what happened to Summer Newman?

I will watch this strictly for Michael Muhney, whom I still miss on Y&R. I’m in a minority, I see, who can’t abide Freddie Highmore’s mannered acting. I watched BATES MOTEL just for the stellar work of Vera Farmiga and Max Theriot. Looking forward to seeing Michael’s work coming up.

Love Michael Muhney, hope he eventually comes back to Y & R, his fans really miss him, the show needs something new, please bring him back.

Freddie Highmore is such an amazing actor. From the time I saw this little English lad in Finding Neverland…amazing the performances he gives in an American accent…especially now and his detached way of expressing himself in his current role. Incredible talent!

Agree!! And from the first time I saw FREDDIE play in AUGUST RUSH I actually wondered if he was related to Michael…they have similar facial features….more obvious when FREDDIE was younger. Love them both.

Yes! I loved August Rush! Fantastic in that, as well. I’m not an MM fan (which is why I didn’t comment specifically on him…sorry. LOL…never watched him on Y&R and not sure what the deal was with the alleged “situation” on set. I know he has his loyal fans…but as a neutral observer in listening to the fans take sides…I’ll just leave it at that. (I do admit though he was very good in his role on The Good Doctor. Tuned in by mistake…first time I saw the show since I don’t usually watch medical shows (Chicago Med and Night Shift I fell into and they’re both good)…which is when I realized it was Freddie. I’ll watch again. It, too, was good and that young actor who played the patient??? What a gorgeous, talented kid!!!! He broke my heart; I was misty through the whole end. He’s going to break a LOT of hearts when he’s older!!!

And then there’s Jonathan Rhys Myers (referring back to August Rush). Incredible actor unfortunately troubled with addiction. The Tudors? He can play anyone…what a talent! I’ll watch anything he’s in….

I didn’t watch because he was on the show. 😛

I hope Michael Muhney returns to Y & R! I was a fan since 1973. I seldomly watch since Michael left!

GH’s Mark Teschner Tells Casting Stories of Johnny Wactor, Giovanni Mazza, Rebecca Herbst & Nicholas Chavez

This week during a very informative and insightful conversation, General Hospital’s 11-time Emmy-winning casting director and now a Daytime Emmy Silver Circle honoree, Mark Teschner spoke on finding the talent for specific roles on the ABC daytime drama series throughout his near three and half decades with the show.

During a livestream chat on the Michael Fairman Channel, Teschner recalled some of the behind the scenes casting stories that brought many beloved favorites to the GH family including the late Johnny Wactor (ex-Brando), the newly-arrived, Giovanni Mazza (Gio), longtime fan favorite, Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth), and rising star, Nicholas Chavez (ex-Spencer) to name but a few.

When speaking with sadness over the loss of Wactor, who was shot and killed back on May 25th, and what he brought to the character of Brando, Teschner recalled, “With Johnny, what you see is what you get. You see the most kind decent, standup guy, and that’s innately who he is. So, that quality comes through in his work and with the character.”

Mark explained, “Brando was a raw kind of hothead, troubled kind of character, and Johnny was able to go there. He had a real intensity that he was able to bring to the role, but at the same time, the character of Brando had to have this depth and this giant heart that he doesn’t necessarily reveal when you first see him. Well, Johnny had the biggest heart of anyone you’ll ever meet. So that essence was already there, and then his acting and his skill played the character. Johnny brought so much of who he was to the character, and there was something so authentic about him.”

Giovanni Mazza recently debuted on GH as “Gio”, so what was his road to landing in Port Charles? Teschner shared, “I was casting a recurring role for a 15-year-old on the show, but when I’m doing the audition, sometimes I’ll open it up because we try to cast true to age, really within a year or so.  If you think about it, all the kids in our show are the exact age of the characters that they’re playing. Because if you have somebody that’s older playing younger, it sticks out because they’re not going to blend age-wise. But I did read a number of actors that were older just because they looked interesting. Gio’s audition came in. I was viewing this through self tapes, and there was just something about him. It wasn’t just that he was a great-looking kid, it was just there’s something very soulful about him and something very compelling, and he draws you in. ”

Mark continued, “So with the group of the 15-year-olds that I sent to Frank Valeintini (EP, GH), I said, ‘Hey, I’m including this kid, Giovanni Mazza. I’m well aware he’s too old, but I just want you to see him.’

After having him come into audition, two weeks later, Frank called Mark and told him they were putting Gio under contract. Teschner added, “So, that was an example where it was his first week in LA, it was his first and ever audition. So we got  before anybody else.  I think he’s really gonna develop into, you know, quite a young actor.”

Becky Herbst has been beloved as Elizabeth for decades, and Teschner recounted her audition process and how she came to the role of Elizabeth. “She (originally) auditioned for the role of Sarah Webber. But the role of Elizabeth was created for Becky. While the character of Sarah did not last long, here we are with Becky 30 years later.”

Teschner cited Becky’s casting as a great example. “I always tell actors when they come into audition, you lay it out, you put it all out there, you bring everything you have to that role. You may not get the role, but if you do good work, you get remembered. And it’s so true.”

Nicholas Chavez popped in the role of Spencer Cassadine before exiting the series. Teschner tells how Chavez came onto the GH casting radar. “Nicholas sent his self tape in from Florida and the rest is history. He had a meteoric impact on the show.” Mark added, “You always have an expectation and the hope that they’re (the actor) going to nail it and run with it. But sure, there are actors, you think, ‘They’re gonna be awesome,’ and then all of a sudden it goes to another level. With Nicholas Chavez, we knew he’d be amazing, but you know, who knew? Well, we did.”

Watch the full conversation with Mark Teschner below where he talks about even more of the casting stories behind some of your GH favorites, then and now.

The Young and the Restless, Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea) has been nominated for a Daytime Emmy seven-times throughout her career for her work on both All My Children and the CBS soap opera. Now viewers are wondering what’s next for the talented Egan in story?

Many are sensing that perhaps Chelsea might get back together with Adam (Mark Grossman) over their connection to their son, Connor and more, while others are rooting for Sally (Courtney Hope) and Adam, who have currently found their way back to one another.

Michael Fairman TV caught up with Egan on the red carpet at the 51st annual Daytime Emmy Awards where she teased some major story to come. When asked if she felt Adam and Chelsea might get back together, Egan couldn’t give a direct answer, but she did tease a major story to put on Y&R viewers radar.

I am like, thinking about my words before I speak because I don’t wanna ruin it. It’s so fun and juicy and you guys (the audience) are gonna love it, or,  even if you don’t love it, you’re gonna feel passionate about it.”

Now a mom of two, Melissa spends her time at the studio taping all-new episodes of Y&R and juggling the daily lives of two young children, Jake and Caden. “I have a baby and a toddler, a 10-month old and a two and a half-year old,” she shares. “They’re exhausting, but they’re so amazing and they’re such sweet. They’re a dream come true. Jake has had me up at 4:30 in the morning a lot lately, and then I have to go to work by 6:30am. You know, it’s just a juggling act. But you just do it. You look at these little faces and you’re just obsessed and it’s all good. It’s all blessings.”
