Y&R Casts Its New Adam Newman With Mark Grossman

Photo MGrossmanInstagram

The search is finally over for one of daytime’s most coveted and sought after roles.   Actor Mark Grossman is the new black sheep of the Newman clan, Adam Newman on CBS’ The Young and the Restless.

The role was last played by This Is Us star Justin Hartley (2014-2016), and before that portrayed by Michael Muhney (2009-2014), and Chris Engen (2008-2009).

Daytime Confidential first broke the news, which was then confirmed by Soap Opera Digest.

Grossman’s credits include: Freeform’s Famous In LoveHustle, and a film  said to be currently in production Two Cents from a Pariah.  He also appeared in the film South32 with former One Life to Live and DAYS star, Melissa Archer.

Now, just how Adam returns to the Genoa City canvas with a new face after the explosion where he is believed to have perished, will be of much intrigue.

As of yet, no first airdate has been given for the debut of Grossman.  Stay tuned as more intel comes to light.

So, excited that the character of Adam is coming back to the canvas? What do you think on paper of Grossman as the new bad boy in Genoa City? Comment below.

They should have kept the character dead if they won’t bring either Michael Muhney or Justin Hartley back to the role. Big mistake! I’m not Happy with this turn of events.

Another new face for Adam? He must have a lot of built up scar tissue.

SUCKS – he’s so “NEW” to the scene.. he doesn’t even have any thing on YouTube… to assess his vibe and/or connect with any thing… so far i’m not getting

AND, yes that has every thing to do with Michael Muhney… @CBS you are losing right out of the gate

“He doesn’t have anything on YouTube?” LOL. He was on a Primetime show and had done a ton of primetime TV movies. Look at his IMDB and watch the movies or Famous in Love.

I’ve never heard of Mark Grossman. So, this will be interesting to see how he works himself into the canvas of Y&R.

Excited but at 32 years old seems way too young to play Adam. He looks more like part of the teen set.

hi Mika..
He looks teenyeenie LOL
How old is Adam,45ish?
this new Adam looks very young to be thee Adam..

Celia
Guest
Celia

Actually, SusieQ, the REAL Adam should be younger than Nick…..waaaay younger than Nick. TPTB aged him….and Muhney was not the original Adam. So, Mark is actually the right age??
Of course, I would have preferred Muhney, myself…..but, I have given up hope, su…..he left too much garbage behind; according to some.
Hmmmm…..you don’t like teenie-tiny, su? Let’s just see how this new guy struts his stuff. You know we’ll be first to give an opinion. Yes?LOL.

No Adan is the same age as Victoria, actually! Victor didn’t know that he was even born. He didn’t xome in until his Mom was dying.

Celia
Guest

My gradmother has been watching Y&R since its inception. Victoria was born in 1982; Nick in 1988 and Adam in 1995. Abby, the baby, was born in 2000. Obviously, it’s a soap, and children are rapidly aged….Nevertheless, Victoria is the eldest. Victor did not find out Adam was his when Hope died. He knew well before that—-went to visit them in Kansas where Victor had met Hope. However, because Hope did not want to disrupt Adam’s life ( we first met him as a little boy while his mother was married to someone else), he asked Victor to not reveal… Read more »

My thoughts exactly! Just seen him today and am so disappointed. They did not find the right person for this character!!

Celia

He’s got the Adam-look–manly face—what’s it hiding? Where has he been? Is Chelsea with him?–together all this time? Does he have amnesia? A brain tumor? LOL.
We all knew he’d be coming back….I am soooo looking forward to a new storyline—-especially with Adam. I hope Mark meets Adam’s qualities and not turn him into another persona….like a mushy-good guy. A little devilish imp in his brain (a fundamentally benign one) will be welcomed. I love oxymorons!! Please let this Adam be one.

Harry

Okay, everyone please give this young man a chance–he doesn’t just have one pair of shoes to fill, he has two. His predecessors were both fantastic in their own ways.
My only objection is why give Adam a third face? We often have recasts and there is no explanation as to why the character looks different. For an example of that look no further than at the role of Kyle Abbott who has been played by at least three different actors. The Three Faces of Eve? Try the Three Faces of Adam. No explanation necessary!

Hi Harry, hope you’re doing well-
Why, oh why- can’t they simply say; the part of Adam in being played by…..

I’m not attracted to him- that is minus 1..
And-

I don’t want another puffy lil’ weenier guy on my screen..
If he can’t deliver a Strong vivid/viral man then he is FF.

Well, time will tell I hope he doesn’t disappoint me.

“Michael Muhney or bust- I say..” ABSOLUTELY I’m having a – HEEBIE JEEBIE – moment ^^^ that pic above… reeks too much of “Victor” in the eyes , and that snarky pleased with himself, express Oh God , no !!! two for 1 if his acting is OFF… that’s okay with me as it’s just a reminder of Victor any way. He doesn’t have that je ne sais quoi QUALITY… because his character is so tour de force .. Adams is JUST their so present and consuming. if it’s a let down… and it understandably very well could… after thee… Read more »

Hi Patrick–
what can we say lol
there’s an old saying-
”–in one hand — in the other” ahaa!

I wasn’t watching Y&R (as many others) from its creation so- Michael Muhney is my Adam..

Still, this Adam might not be so bad, he might even be good, but, he is not Michael Muhney 🙁

In history of the character Adam was much younger then Nick and Victoria so they finally are age appropriate ! Just really not up for MCE returning sorry but I knew JG was going this direction ! Will see if he is more then a handsome face! As far as MM he was great but situations happened and politics are involved in everything!

Justin left some huge shoes to fill. This guy needs to knock it out of the ballpark. And he’s such a rookie. Not hopeful.

I heard he would be an actor w/ 10 different personalities; and he’s coming well equipped, where people would like him right off.He’s good & knows his stuff; according to other actors. So give him a chance b4 you write him off.

I haven’t written him off. I want to like him, but right now, he needs to win me over.

Well, I am team MUHNEY. BUT, I am not ignorant, I will keep an opened mind. Eric Braeden doesnt want him back on the show and thats the beginning and end of it! I didnt care for Hartley as a recast and he blossomed into a huge star. He was too soft of an Adam. I liked Muhney’s evilness and charm! This guy looks more like an evil version of Adam. If he can act, great! I would like to see Chloe and Kevin back. I DO NOT want Chelsea back! Lets go!

This is a terrible decision and I for sure will not return to watching. I wish this guy the best — in any other role. What is wrong with The Young and the Restless powerpeople, Sony powerpeople, and CBS powerpeople. Michael Muhney is an electrifying actor, raises the entire cast — especially Eric Braeden’s acting – -making it a “must-watch” show —- so what do these power people do —- they hire this guy. I will not return to watching. And, I am actually angry.

“Thank You” I am in complete agreement… even knowing their is a new head writing “team” in place… w/ a bad executive producer move.. right out of the gate- sure gnaws at ones commitment to give this show another shot. I don’t think so. this cast , can sing to the heavens how long they are #1. bearing in mind in it’s hey day… NOW currently only achieves a 1/3 of the ratings grab it once held.. respectively. not any more. who knows how long this genre exists…. did CBS AND Y&R have any fight at all ? to fight… Read more »

Seems Y&R wants us to again forget the last couple of years. This si the second time Adam as arisen from the ashes. I know it is a trope — ATWT’s Stenbeck, DOOL’s diMera, CH’s Cassadine — but… I am no fan of it, especially here. If are rebooting then let’s move forward. First, I would just have him return and maybe we can ‘forget’ that whole plastic surgery thing. I mean, if JT’s actions can be explained away by a brain tumor (!?!?!?!?!?). When Adam returns — and that does open up stories about legacy characters which a vocal… Read more »

I might be one of only a handful of people out there that watched and liked Famous in Love– he was playing a stalker—in that role he went from sweet and nice, to crazy wacko at the end– so he has range. The thing is MM was so good in the role of Adam that even now years later it is hard to forget his take on the character. Justin was good, but for me he was more Gabe than Adam. I honestly think it would have been better to invent a whole new character– maybe Hope had another son… Read more »

LOL, Jay….you never cease to entertain me, my friend….
I hope you don’t mean romantically? Summer is Adam’s niece…
But, if you are referring to the politics going on behind the scenes….well, yeah!! Absolutely!! NuAdam may look at her ‘askance “, and taken as lascivious. Who knows?? Everyone has been so tight-lipped ( which is a good thing) about what really happened. Still guessing!! Can’t really blame any newcomer’s mistrust, if he is aware of what went down. Agree with you!!

You can get out of it by making Gabe an imposter. He knew Adam and took over his life. The real Adam was safe and sound in a basement somewhere or no plastic surgery everyone just remarks Adam you are no longer blond and let that be the end of it.

The character Adam Newman was born in 1995! The character Victoria 1982 the character Nick 1988!

Yes, Adam should be 24, and Abby about 19, Harry—my grandmother keeps harping on these discrepancies. Drives her nuts, LOL.
I remember when Abby was born ( 2000–I was fourteen)…now she’s older than I am. Surreal…
Chronologically, both Amelia and Joshua are older than their characters—
Summer should be 14, LOL…..the girl has been around the block and back—and only 14. HaHa!!

I hope they just say “the rule of Adam Newman is now being played by Marc Grossman.” It’s not necessary to have a whole new face storyline. Characters are recast ALL the time. It’s like if they made Phyllis have an accident and new face just for Michelle Stafford coming back. Silly. I am one of those people that wanted Muhney but understand why the show didn’t want him back. His cray fans think they know all the answers just because “he said so.” That’s not the way it works. They are in deep denial because a show will always… Read more »

The 2 best actors tht played Adam Neumann was Justin Hartley Michael Muhney this Mark Grossman he looks to young don’t kno why U don’t bring back Justin he is so sexy he is just gorgeous & so is Michael they really fit the part as bad boy Adam especially Michael Muhney bring 1 of them back PLEASE!!!!!!! They make the whole show

I think its stupid, no amount of plastic surgery could make you 13 yrs younger and about 4 or 5 inches shorter and bone structure skinnier. Maybe he’s an imposter and Michael Muhney will return as the real Adam Newman! Do you think the writers are that smart and good?

I believe this new Adam is an imposter, with intentions of bringing Victor down once he has gained the trust of the Newman clan. That to me is more believable than Adam surviving the blast ending up in Vegas with amnesia.
Mark my words something is not legit about this new Adam Newman.

Anne Heche in “Extremely Critical Condition”; Still in Coma Following Fiery Car Crash

Although earlier reports over the weekend had soap opera alum and Daytime Emmy-winner, Anne Heche (Ex-Vicky/Marley, Another World) in stable condition following crashing her car into a home, on Monday an update on her condition looked more grim.

According to a statement provided to Deadline by Heche’s rep: “At this time Anne is in extreme critical condition. She has a significant pulmonary injury requiring mechanical ventilation and burns that require surgical intervention. She is in a coma and has not regained consciousness since shortly after the accident.”

Since last Friday, Heche has been hospitalized following a harrowing incident where she crashed her car which caught fire into a private home in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles.

In addition, Los Angeles Police Department Officer Annie Hernandez told City News Service that investigators obtained a warrant for a blood draw from Heche.

Over the last few days, a new episode of Heche’s podcast “Better Together” with her co-host Heather Duffy was released, which showed the actress slurring her speech.

Erroneous reports said that the podcast which dropped on Friday, was also recorded that day, and that Heche had been drinking prior to her accident during the show.  However, it has come to light that Heche taped that episode last Tuesday, not the day of the crash.

Share your thoughts and prayers for Anne as we continue to monitor and update the situation on the film and TV star, via the comment section below.

Anne Heche in Critical Condition After Fiery Car Crash

UPDATED: TV and film star, and Another World alum, Anne Heche (Ex-Vicky/Marley) is in critical condition following a harrowing and fiery car crash in Los Angeles on Friday afternoon.

“Anne is in the ICU, she’s lucky to be alive. She has severe burns and has a long recovery ahead. Her team and her family are still trying to process what led up to the crash,” a source close to the actress revealed to CNN on Saturday morning.

According to reports and video obtained by TMZ, Heche was driving at lighting speed and crashed twice in a residential area of Mar Vista.  In the initial crash, Anne, who was driving a Mini Cooper slammed into the garage of an apartment complex. Residents attempted to get Anne out of the vehicle but she put her car in reverse and then sped away.  Next, she crashed into a home, which ignited a fire, and the fire engulfed the entire home.  However, Anne was severely burned in the fire and taken out by ambulance in a stretcher.

According to Los Angeles Fire Department Capt Erik Scott: “We had a significant traffic collision, we had entrapment of a woman inside that, we had car that erupted into fire, and then we had a home that had significant fire that is red tagged. It’s at this point destroyed.”

Heche is currently in a Los Angeles hospital, and had to be intubated following being severely burned.

Soaps fans know that Anne won a Daytime Emmy for her dual roles on Another World and played Vicky and Marley Hudson from 1987-2001.  She has also appeared in the films, Donnie Brasco, Six Days Seven Nights, Wag the Dog. and more.  On television, Heche has appeared in the last few years on: Dancing with the Stars, Quantico and Chicago P.D.

We will continue to monitor this developing story.

So, what do you think of the fiery crash involving Anne? Send your thoughts and prayers her way via the comment section below.  But first, watch this news report from KTLA channel 5 in Los Angeles who were on the scene of the crash.

BREAKING NEWS: Days of our Lives Ending Its Run on NBC, Moving to Peacock Starting in September

In a major move, Days of our Lives, the longest-running scripted series of all-time on NBC, is exiting the television network and will now be in its new home on the NBCUniversal streaming platform, Peacock.

The shift marks the end of DAYS’ nearly 57 year-run on broadcast television. Days of our Lives debuted on NBC back on November 8th, 1965.

Look for all-new episodes daily of the series to begin on Peacock starting on September 12th, along with the show’s library already available to stream for Peacock Premium subscribers.  According to a press release from Peacock, “The historic move to Peacock creates the ultimate destination for daytime fans to access the library, new episodes and Peacock Original Days of Our Lives: Beyond Salem in one place.”

In its place, NBC will fill the daytime drama’s current timeslot with NBC News Now, an hour-long news show anchored by Kate Snow, Aaron Gilchrist, Vicky Nguyen and Morgan Radford. According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC affiliates will also have the option to add local news to the hour.

In a statement, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming chairman Mark Lazarus shares: “This programming shift benefits both Peacock and NBC and is reflective of our broader strategy to utilize our portfolio to maximize reach and strengthen engagement. With a large percentage of the Days of Our Lives audience already watching digitally, this move enables us to build the show’s loyal fanbase on streaming while simultaneously bolstering the network daytime offering with an urgent, live programming opportunity for partners and consumers.”

NBC’s decision means it leaves only three daytime soaps on American broadcast TV: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful. 

DAYS has found recent streaming success with its limited-series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem Chapters 1 and 2, which introduced the viewing audience to the Peacock platform.

To watch Days of our Lives on Peacock, you will need a premium-tier paid subscription at $4.99 per month. The service offers an an ad-free experience at $9.99 per month.

We will have more on this developing story.

So, what do you think of NBC removing DAYS from its daytime line-up, while moving it to their owned-streaming platform, Peacock? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
