THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: Adam Is Back As Mark Grossman Makes His Debut

Photo Credit: JPI

As Friday’s episode of Y&R ended, Sharon (Sharon Case) exclaimed, “Oh, my God! It is you!” But viewers did not see who walked in the door, but it obviously is going to be Adam Newman in the flesh.

Now on next week’s key episodes of The Young and the Restless, Sharon and Adam (Mark Grossman) are reunited, although he seems to have amnesia and cannot recall anything about his life before the explosion where he was presumed dead.

In story, Victor (Eric Braeden) has enlisted Sharon to try to get through to Adam and help him remember his life, but will it work? Is Adam up to his old tricks? Is he setting everyone up, because … Adam is coming home to Genoa City!

Nick (Joshua Morrow) will obviously not be too happy about his brother being back, especially since he has been raising Adam’s biological son, Christian, and as we saw on Friday’s episode, Adam kept a photo of Christian, but no one else in the family.

Enter Mark Grossman on Monday’s episode as he makes his first appearance as the recast Adam following in the footsteps of Justin Hartley, who is now on This Is Us.  Can Grossman make the role his own? Bets are, he will put his own footprint as all the Adams have done before him.

So, what do you think of how the writers are bringing Adam back to the canvas?  Does he really not remember anything? Excited to see Mark take over the role?  Is Shadam getting a second chance too? Share your thoughts via the comment section below, but first check out next week’s promo heralding Adam’s return.

All I can say is that it’s way beyond time they brought the character back.

I live in Canada so I got to see Monday’s episode already, and so far Mark fits the role perfectly. His scenes with Sharon show a genuine connection between the characters, and he seems to have the acting chops to follow the incredible work of Michael Muhney and Justin Hartley in the role. Josh Griffith clearly realizes the importance of having Adam around, and I’m looking forward to seeing him re-integrated with the rest of the characters.

Hope you are right.At only 32, he seems awfully young to be playing opposite Sharon, who is close to fifty I believe.

I agree no disrespect to the actor but the age is not appropriate for the character.

Hi, Cassie, This is exactly the age Adam should be. He is supposed to be much younger than both Victoria ( the eldest) and Nick. The PTB messed up when they made Adam older and paired him with Sharon. Nonetheless, Sharon looks amazing!! I hope my body holds up as well as hers at that age!! She does not look much older than nuAdam to me. I am more nonplussed ( or bemused, actually) by how soap characters play musical beds —-Sharon has been with Nick, Adam, Dylan, and Victor. Have I forgotten anyone? LOL. One of our fellow-posters stated… Read more »

I totally agree he is very handsome but too young and they are making him too evil. It’s a turn off!!! He could be playing Sharon’s son what they gave him that little mustache do they think that is going to make him look older. No offense to him but he is too thin to play Adam so I give a thumbs down for the the second time!

I am also from Canada and I agree with Jim. Soaps ages are subjective at best. Gina Tognoni as Phyllis was nowhere near old enough to play mother to the Daniel character. If the writing and acting is on point, we just have to look past the actors’ and characters’ ages. As an unknown, this guy has some acting chops…witnessed on only his first day. I never liked Muhney…maybe because Adam was dark and so evil. I loved Justin Hartley in the role…he was softer, more human, playful and charismatic. I hope this Adam will be more like that!

I want this Adam to be more as Muhney since he’ll need it as he deals with Nick.

Why does Sharon’s age matter? I didn’t hear or read about anyone saying anything when Victor married younger women!

James

Perhaps in an ideal world, all these characters should have aged in real time, no SORAS whatsoever for the sake of pushing story when they’re not patient enough to do so.

He hasn’t said a word yet but I already don’t like him. No offense to the actor, I just want Michael Muhney! He will always be ADAM!

Jimmy
Guest

I felt the same way when Justin Hartley was cast in the role, and he did phenomenal work. And you will be surprised how well Mark embodies Michael Muhney’s mannerisms and facial expressions. Watching him brought back memories of Muhney’s Adam, so I’d say that he’s doing well in the role so far.

Timmm

I am a HUGE MM fan and only wanted him to reprise the role. BUT, CBS didnt want having nothing to do with him so we have to move on. The character is badly needed. Now we see if this dude can come through. Give him a chance Shari.

Hi Timmm and Jimmy–
)ooh mercy-
New Adam looks like the Pool Boy the Cougars ask in for a twirl.

He may be a good actor, not the problem, he just doesn’t fit in
He is age deprived .. !!

My sentiments exactly, only you said it better! Also, I feel that he makes Sharon look older.

Just everybody back off of case she is doing her job and she looks Dam fine for 47 ! This is only temporary I think he and Chelsea are in cahoots so everybody can get off her back she is simply doing her job ! That actress has been run thru the mill since 2006 we finally get her back on track and here we go again let’s throw her under the bus she is one of the nicest people I know ! Steve Burton was not crap on that show until they hooked him up with Case she carry’s… Read more »

They will never bring back Michael Muhney. Just as DOOL will never bring back Robert Kelker-Kelly.

He reminds me of the new Thomas on b&b. Same type. No depth to make the character their own. Michael Muhney captured the essence of Adam.

Wish him luck he deserves a chance he looks to me like he could have a dark edge to him and CE & MM brought that I always felt Pratt wrote JH version as more obsessed over Chelsea so I am hoping we get back to the scheming dark side of Adam . I personally think he is pulling a scam that he does not have amnesia. He tested with Case and obviously they felt he could pull it off.

Timmm

Hartley was good on Y&R but would have been better as another character. Adam is dark. Justin was to soft. I could not stand his obsession over HELLsea! Justin has done amazing on “This is Us” and its not a surprise. Lets hope the new guy is back to swindling the Mustache! Go Adam!

Boop

I agree with what you said about Justin and Adam’s character.

Let’s put this character to rest short story Sharon has grown let her move on I like her with Rey

I think Sharon has more chemistry with NUAdam than she does with Rey!

“Shadam” looks more May-December. And it makes no sense to go that way since Justin Hartley’s Adam had nothing to do with Sharon.

Chelsea is the love of his life. Sharon is history.

I think it is ridiculous. The U.S. soaps are the only shows who do this crap. Let the characters stay dead.

Well I saw two days of him he is scamming them I hate that Sharon will be hurt again but so it goes ! He is texting Chelsea now maybe this time rude off into the sunset ! Bye

I agree, Kay. It has to be a scam. The story is being rushed and I don’t believe this is really Adam at all.

Kay

You would not be discussing her age if she was a man . Case has carried every actor she is paired with sure he will write her nuts soon that’s his profile she wil do it that’s who she is at the end of today’s he texted somebody probably his fellow con artist Chelsea Lordy now all I will see is MCE in her underwear calling it acting and now Stafford coming back she calls that acting too so it goes back off the dvr

Just watched the new Adam. He has acting chops and seems to be off to a promising start. Definitely picture him as the Adam before he becomes the next Justin Hartley.

Just met new Adam; am behind in viewing. The age difference with Sharon stood out; particularly because of Jack and his latest attachment which seems to have thankfully faded. (She was a unique actor. It just was not the right role.) May\December romances need delicate touches. I guess new Adam could follow the evil Victor side or the more softer side Justin portrayed which I appreciated. Victor had gotten so evil at one point in the writing that things were difficult to watch. Sharon’s acting was superior. It seemed a one-sided shot. Adam didn’t shine yet. As someone else said,… Read more »

Hi Tani
Yes there was a mix up in the lab by Adam and Victor, but during the custody fight last year for Christian, they did another DNA, proving that Adam was the baby’s bio dad. My heart broke for Nick.

Thank you Violet, I trust you more than my light viewing patterns, however, it is that last test that I feel Victor paid to have Adam be the father.

I like him so far – and have to say I love those chiseled cheekbones LOL. I am a huge Muhney fan and there is nothing I would like better than to see him reprise the role; he will always be Adam to me. But I know that a return would never happen. I’m a bit surprised that I like this actor almost right away; with the exception of Gina T. most recasts take me a while to get used to. As for the age thing, I’m trying not to think about it any more.

They are making this Adam act so mean I am thinking about not watching the show anymore that’s how bad it has been.i hate it I can’t hate the actor it’s not his fault it’s the writers. I think he is very handsome but to nasty for me. The Y and the R ur are making a big mistake.Ypu are going to lose a lot of viewers that’s my opinion!!!!!

DAYS Alison Sweeney Previews the New EJami

Coming up on Days of our Lives, Dan Feurerriegel take over the role of EJ DiMera on-screen, and the character is making quite the timely, or untimely return to Salem now that Sami (Alison Sweeney) has been hitting the sheets with her ex-husband, Lucas (Bryan Dattilo).

Feurerriegel is stepping into the coveted role of EJ made soap-famous by James Scott, who left the series back in 2014 and never returned.

Now the question is can Sweeney and Feurerriegel strike soap gold with their re-imagined duo known as “EJami”?

 

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Alison Sweeney opened up about the casting, working with Dan, and the future of EJami sharing: “To be honest, I was nervous when I heard they were recasting EJ.  That’s a big role to fill, I mean, James Scott was definitely a fan favorite and EJ is such a memorable role in the story and certainly in Sami’s life.”

Sweeney said of sharing scenes with Feurerriegel, “Dan has been fantastic. I’ve really enjoyed working with him. He clearly understood the importance of the task ahead.”

As for what fans of EJami may be in for, Sweeney noted:  ” I hope those ‘EJami’ fans see the couple they were so connected to, but of course, in a new, different way.”

So will you be giving the new EJami a chance? Looking forward to Dan’s debut, or are you Team Lumi all the way? Share your thoughts via the comment section below. But first check out this week’s promo for DAYS.
