Y&R Recasting Adam Newman? Casting Breakdown Reads Like It!

Is The Young and the Restless actively searching for an actor to play the role of Adam Newman, last played by Michael Muhney? It sure seems like it from this casting breakdown making the Internet rounds today via Nelson Branco.

The casting breakdown that went out to agents and managers related the following for the part of “Aaron Newton”.

Description: “Caucasian Male. Mid-30s to Late-30s. A very handsome, very SEXY, very appealing, very charming LEADING MAN. Aaron is a smart businessman, loves women, and can out maneuver even the shrewdest. NOTE: Actor must be AT LEAST 5’10 and have NO ACCENT PLEASE. This actor will carry major storylines. ONLY actors with strong acting experience will be considered.”

The casting breakdown also reveals that the actor would begin taping in May!

So if this Adam, and knowing that Michael Muhney is not returning to the show due to his dismissal, who would you suggest as viable contenders for the role? Let us know your casting thoughts!

never felt they were a good match at all–remember how rocky it was from the start….definitely not a good match….Sharon needs someone new…and now Victor and the wife are separated again, that card has been played way too many times it’s boring now. I hope they don’t replace Phyllis as well, all these replacements will lose fans I’m sure

Brandon Barash…if not returning to GH as rumored…looks the part…I like Trevor but i dont think he’d commit full time to a soap…but if he did become Adam i might start watching again or if Brandon does instead!!!

Elhu
Guest

I agree Jim, both TSJ and Brandon Barash would be great for the part, but with Trevor’s involvement in primetime TV now, I doubt he would ever commit long term. I would prefer that the rumor of Brandon’s return to GH be true to, but in the event it is not, this role would be perfect for him.

On the lines of the Adam Newman character, I wonder whatever came of the charges against Michael Muhney. I do not recall every hearing anything about this again. Does anyone know? Thanks

Trevor St. John is WAY too old. The character of Adam Newman was born in 1995, a couple of years AFTER St. John had graduated college.

Hopefully they will hire a newbie actor still in his 20’s.

Sharon was Adams true love, I don’t know how the writers couldn’t remember that??

Your story idea is great, so I’m sure the writers could not even think of it, they have no talent!!

Harlee
Guest
Harlee

No, No, No to TSJ he’s too old and looks OLDER then Nick. Dear gawd I hope not actually YR doesn’t need Adam right now.

I don’t get why people seems all casting should come from ABC’s soaps…CBS’s defunct soaps has just as many talented, top actors. Prime example Tom Pelphrey would be excellent or Billy Magnussen off the top of head.

mollie
Guest
mollie

Tom Pelphrey is an excellent suggestion. He is all that the Adam character is and IMO way hotter than Michael Muhney. Tom P. was so great on Guiding Light as Reva son. What a coup if Y & R cast him.

Also, l love Billy Magnussen, but not as much for Adam Newman as Tom Pelphrey. Would love to see Billy M. back on a soap!

Michael
Guest
Michael

The only problem with casting Billy Magnussen is that Billy is in his late 20’s and is primarily doing a lot of theatre on the east coast (he did nab a Tony nomination last year). Tom Pelphrey, I’m not sure he’d want to move out west either considering that theatre is his first love.

No!!!!! Adam and Sharon don’t belong together! Chelsea has way more class, beauty, and charisma then Sharon, no offense Sharon. And Adam (Michael Muhney) isn’t returning regardless of the reason, I don’t how anyone could replace him. Michael, you will be missed. Y&R will not be the same without you.

Deb V

Harlee

As soaps have done since the beginning of time, characters as Adam will be recast by another strong actor (NO actors from ABC) regardless of MM. Yes, MM was an outstanding actor who put himself in this situation. He can only blame himself for being dismissed from the show. I know psycho-fans of MM are thinking they have made a difference hurting YR but on the contrary they have increased in the ratings since his departure. The part of Adam can & will in time be part of the canvas again because MM was at YR for only 4 yrs.… Read more »

Chelsea the con artist who drugged and “raped” Billy to get pregnant, schemed with Victor to break up Billy and Vicki, lied to Adam about his son and hoodwinked Dylan into thinking he was Connor’s dad (btw, she never suffered any repercussions for that deception, now the golden girl of GC) has more class than Sharon, ok.

DITTO to Trevor being the new Adam. Another recasting on Y&R: Robin Christopher (ex Skye on AMC and GH); Bobbi Eakes (ex Macy B&B); Marcy Walker (ex Liza Colby, AMC)’ or Jamie Luner (ex Liza Colby AMC) to replace Phyllis.

I think we all know it is Adam’s replacement. It’s been said all along that they would bring his character back. Trevor St. John, as most have been saying, would be the ideal replacement if there is going to be one. If that’s not possible, I think Brandon Barrash does well at playing the troubled bad guy and could certainly hold his own against EB. Imagine for a moment that it’s “not” Adam recast, I would like to see Austin Peck back on daytime… mainly because I miss looking at him 🙂 Not sure how he would do as Adam… Read more »

I watched Austin Peck on ATWT. He is definitely NOT right for the role of Adam. His strength seems to lie in the area of comic relief. I cannot see him replacing MM at all. For that matter, I can’t see anyone as a replacement!

ChadamFan
Guest
ChadamFan

He might not get bashed for being a “Friend of Jill”, but he would for being a “Friend of Jean”. JP was obsessed with AP on ATWT.

Adam Newman is a very complex, prominent character with a lot of depth and history. AP is one of the last actors I’d choose to portray him. JMHO.

Susan
Guest

No one can bring to the part of Adam Newman what Michael Muhney did. If knowing your lines when it is time to tape, make you difficult too work with, too bad. Maybe the older actors could use teleprompters instead of adlibbing and throwing others off their game.

Sharonda
Guest

IA Susan! I stopped watching months ago, and don’t miss it. However I do miss Michael Muhney portrayal of Adam. He was Adam and any replacement would not do the character justice, unless the higher ups know that Y&R has less than 5 years or less left and don’t care one way or another. This soap wont be saved.

IA Sue. they need to kill of Dylan, Victor, and Summer. We don’t need her on the canvass, we needed Cassie before she died and real heroes (screw Dylan) like Nina’s son Phillip! We needed Colleen.

If rumors are true ( about why he was let go ), then he has no one to blame but himself, but we ‘peasants’ have no idea re: real story.

I will be honest it took me a long time to warm up too MM’s version I liked CE and he even came out to defend himself and they still ripped him apart. Like I said below ED & EB both tried to get him to stay it had nothing to do with the gay storyline. He stated his reasons… Read more »

I know of an actor who would be absolutely perfect! He would make this role his own displaying a very flawed character who was never able to earn his daddy’s unconditional love and respect. He knows how to demonstrate an exterior which flickers beneath his tough and somewhat arrogant vulnerability. I can’t recall the actor’s name…wait, it’s coming to me…oh yes! I remember his name.
It’s Michael Muhney of course.

Brandon has not been on GH for a while but there are always rumors that he might return.

Except the casting call says “no accent.” Paolo’s English has gotten more understandable over time, but last time I saw him in anything, his accent was still pretty noticeable.

I also think he might be a little too old. He started on ATWT in 1993 and he was already in his 20s (at least).

Sorry, but they’ll never find someone like Michael Muhney to play this character. When Muhney took over from Chris Egan (who wasn’t bad in the part), he MADE Adam his own and gave Adam a personality that no one else could ever duplicate. To try and hire someone new to take Muhney’s place in the Y&R world as THE Adam Newman? Impossible! One thing’s for sure, we ALL know that whomever is taking Michael Muhney’s place will be scrutinized intensely by fans, mainly because of the amazing love/hate relationship they had with Muhney’s Adam. Whomever the actor will be who… Read more »

Damien that was not why Chris Engen left. Do you remember when Adam (C.E. ) came out of jail and lived at the old ranch with Victor and he pretended to be blind? After causing Ashley to lose her baby he needed a lawyer. He called that young dark haired guy that worked with Christine and knowing that guy was gay Adam (C.E.) was pretending to be gay & kissed him. Well C.E. did not want to play the part of a gay fellow so he quit before his contract was up.

k/kay
Guest

@Fran ED/Ashley & EB/Victor would probably beg to differ he talked to both of them at great length that he hated the storyline of gaslighting Ashley. As soon as that stupid script came out the gossip started oh that must have been why he quit. Absolutely no proof no basis but it had to be because he hated gays. I love how everyone knows what someone has in their heart. It worked however the man has not really acted since then.

Fran
Guest

Damien I have a link for you. It’s “Soapcentral.com May 21-2009 Chris Engen quits y &r” It was to long to type the story but it was there. Hope it helps. I liked him as well but I don’t like the idea of someone quitting if they don’t like a script. If everyone did that can you see the mess?

Fran–You’ll notice the headline of that story says “reported gay story protest.” The only person “reporting” it, as I recall, was Nelson Branco, and others picked it up and ran with it. But that entire aspect was pretty effectively shot down not long afterward (among other things, somebody pointed out that the story was that Engen saw what the script wanted him to do and quit, when in fact actors got their scripts several weeks ahead of time). It was as Damien said, he didn’t like the direction the character had taken, and the producers eventually confirmed Engen’s version–that he… Read more »

Damien You may very well be right. I just remember he was a great actor & we never see him in anything anymore. I guess the only person that really knows is him alone. However now we’ve lost two great Adams & I liked the first Kyle the best also & he was replaced. Guess we’ll have to wait & see.

Whoever they pick will have to be amazing and then some, to get this viewer even half way convinced he is Adam.

I totally agree. They should go back to the car crash & find the remains of the body. Maybe old Victor could go with them to check it out & fall in and drown!! Then when Summer finds out that Nick is her real Dad & Victor was her grandfather she would be so upset that she never got to say goodbye so she kills herself. Then bring back Michael Muhney.

Trevor St.John would be the perfect replacement as most everyone agrees. However, if physical resemblance isn’t important, Brandon Barash can handle all the nuances of Adam’s character.

sonniorsolita

Since all the Michael Muhney fans say they are no longer watching, it’s really irrelevant whether they like a potential recast or not. And though Muhney was hugely talented, of course Adam can be recast. Any role can be recast, with the exception of actors who have been on so long they are iconic (Melody Thomas Scott, for example). There are plenty of outstanding actors in L.A. who could do amazing work as Adam. Will they be the same as Muhney? No. But that doesn’t mean they will fail.

Michael Muhney is irreplaceable in the role of Adam, but if the show must go forward with a recast, as JFP probably will do as she clearly likes her role recasts (Abby, Kyle, Billy) I would say Trevor St. John because he was great on OLTL and would fit in very well on Y&R. I really do miss MM though, and Billy Miller for that matter. David Tom isn’t doing great as Billy and there is no chemistry with him and Victoria.

Melissa Ordway as Abby is actually growing on me but Hartley Sawyer as Kyle was an incredible miscast, I can’t believe they though he was better than Blake Hood in the role, who IMO emulated a young Peter Bergman. If they recast Kyle again in the future, I think Tom Pelphrey would be a good choice. And yeah, Billy is not the same anymore, he looks younger and less mature than Billy Miller’s Billy.

I stopped watching weeks before MM & BM left. It had to do with the dismal storylines and the pushing of JFP’s pets on the screen as well as the character of Victor, who has become so reprehensible that there was no entertainment factor in looking at Victor’s scenes. So, recast or no recast unless I knew that there were major changes in the writing I won’t be tuning in. A shame really because Y&R has some wonderful actors who are wasted on a daily basis.

All the seasoned male soap actors including TSJ are not stupid, and would not submit themselves to the backlash from attempting to replace MM..

Why would a terrific actor like Trevor St John sign up to work in that ego driven environment with actors like Eric B? he would have to have his head examined….
There is no win there… people have to bow to the great master… look how Peter B has had to fight … and then to add the cherry on the pie there’s the JILL FACTOR….who wants that unless your a less seasoned actor looking to make a name for himself and can swallow a lot of…. um crow.

why are you people so upset about the AA (Lily & Neil) cast members on Y&R? Would you rather they be the maids and drivers ? Come on. There is nothing wrong with Lily and Cain and Neil has been on Y&R for years and never played a lead role. He’s not hogging up screen time like Chelsea and Dylan.

According to Soap Opera Digest, Look for Konefal to first appear back on-screen during the January 28th episode of the NBC daytime drama series.

However, reportedly this this will be Ciara in the flesh, not a conjured up or “Vision” of her that comes to Ben in his time of need.

Will AMC Favorite Josh Duhamel Replace Armie Hammer in JLo’s Film, ‘Shotgun Wedding’?

After a controversial few weeks, which saw Armie Hammer exit his leading role opposite Jennifer Lopez in Liongate’s upcoming romantic-comedy/adventure film Shotgun Wedding, it appears the motion picture has found its replacement if the ink is signed.

Former All My Children and Daytime Emmy winner Josh Duhamel (Ex-Leo) has been picked as Hammer’s replacement.

The film tells the story of a couple that gathers their families for a destination wedding even as they get cold feet. If that wasn’t enough, the entire party then gets taken hostage.

Lopez and Hammer were headed for the film shoot in the Dominican Republic when salacious DM’s rumored to be attributed to  Hammer came to light on social media and derailed the films for now.  However, if Duhamel signs on to the film, they could can retain its start date in February

Hammer had responded to the allegations against him and the DM’s by sharing: “I’m not responding to these bullshit claims but in light of the vicious and spurious online attacks against me, I cannot in good conscience now leave my children for 4 months to shoot a film in the Dominican Republic,”

A Lionsgate spokesperson  also responded to Hammer and his exit sharing: “Given the imminent start date of Shotgun Wedding, Armie has requested to step away from the film, and we support him in his decision.”

The Hollywood Reporter first broke the casting news update.

So what do you think of Duhamel as Hammer’s replacement to play opposite JLO? Comment below.
