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!

Trevor St. John seems like the only acceptable replacement

I like that idea!

I loved Sharon and Adam as a couple. I lost interst when Chelsea was put with Ada, Im hoping when a new Adam comes back he remembers he loves Sharon 😀

Jane Smith

no way, Chelsea and Adam were a great match. Sharon’s character has been switched around way too much. so mad that they changed Billyand Adam – show won’t be the same at all

I loved Sharon and Adam also. Not only the sexy chemistry but they had this friendship I adored

Jane Smith

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

He was wonderful on OLTL. I truly enjoyed him.

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!!!

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.

The only actor to play the role of Adam Newman is Michael Muhney, none other.
All others will fail.. .

TSJ ISN’T TOO OLD ,ADAM IS IN HIS 30S TSJ CAN PLAY YOUNGER THAN 42,BRANDON B ,never !!!!!!,THERE WERE NO CHARGES AGAINIST MM .THE RUMOR IS A LIE MADE UP BTS.AND MM IS ADAM ,NO ONE BUT TSJ HAS HIS TALENT AND RESPECT.I’D LOVE TO SEE THEM IN A SERIES TOGETHER.

A GREAT STORYLINE WOULD BE IF ADAM COMES BACK AND THINKS HE IS MARRIED TO HIS GIRL SHARON STILL LIKE NICK THOUGHT AFTER HIS PLANE ACCIDENT . SHARON AND ADAM WERE GREAT TOGETHER, NOTHING THEY WOULDN’T DO FOR EACH OTHER

Sharon was Adams true love, I don’t know how the writers couldn’t remember that??
Sharon and Adam were hot together, remember NOLA??
Your story idea is great, so I’m sure the writers could not even think of it, they have no talent!!

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
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
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.

Sister Ann
Sister Ann

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
Deb V

YES Sharon and Adam were HOT and SEXY .

Harlee
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. I don’t consider him a veteran of the cast. MM was continuous in the role for a brief period of time in YR’s history….if Bill Bell could recast his favorite muse in Jill Foster most certainly Adam can be replaced. There are only a few actors on any soaps that couldn’t be replaced on their show.

Sister Truth
Sister Truth

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.

debster
debster

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.

LUVmy3furkids

I wish that the part Billy is playing would have read those same requirements because he meets none of those listed in that email!!

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 though. I didn’t really watch his time on ATWT but I do know that there were lots of people that liked him on there. And he wouldn’t get bashed for being a “friend of Jill”

carol
carol

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
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

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
Sharonda

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.

ANA

we all know,no matter who they bring to play ,will not fly with the fans,like the new billy/ its just not the same Y&R its fast loosing the appeal once had,becoming boring and predictable,totally agree with susan

Don’t know, it will be hard on any actor that tries to replace MM…maybe just fire EB & HK , since they don’t work well together with MM and bring MM back, however don’t think he would return!! Good Luck finding someone fans love!!

Sharonda
Sharonda

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. Summer can die and they can have her funeral off screen like they did GH’s Jake – somewhere in an alley for all I care.

Sister Ann

leave Dylan alone…

Have to agree too.. Even before the rumor I always felt “summer” was written as spoiled, boring, annoying and portrayed as goody 2 shoes’.. When meanwhile behind the scenes who knows. I saw a pic of HK w/ selena gomez so anyything is possible I guess.. Recast or get rid of this chick.

Fran

I love what Sue suggested fire E.B & H.K. and bring back Michael Muhney. GREAT IDEA Wonder if Y & R thought of that or if it’s to hard to think of ?

Darla J Ochoa
Darla J Ochoa

They will NEVER get rid of EB. His character is “set in stone .” As far as HK, yeah could definitely do w/o her. MM was, and is, a tremendous actor . Can’t imagine ANYONE filling his shoes ! 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 just know that Y&R will not be the same w/o MM, and also Billy M. I do not care for DT in that role either. I find his skills to be seriously lacking any charisma, or talent ! I won’t be watching if MM isn’t officially returned as Adam ! So I should probably say “goodbye” now. Wishing MM the best in future endeavors !!

I liked Chris Engen in the part also but I do not think he is interested he hated playing a dark character. However everyone started rumors about him also and pretty well ruined his chances in daytime.

Tom

Just looked him up on imdb. He hasn’t acted since.

k/kay
k/kay

Yes I know funny how rumor and innuendo can kill an acting career. It now has probably happened to MM doubt you will see him for a long time. This has been going on for a long time blacklisting actors. 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 in an interview and I took him at his word. It is called acting but obviously he could not get pass the story of the miscarriage/Ashley and burning the fetus in the fireplace for me that was very tough to take also.

harry
harry

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.

Forbes March, from OLTL

Brandon still play on GH?

Sissy

Forbes March is not a bad idea. Just my opinion, but Pablo might be a little too old for Adam.

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

Michael (not Fairman)
Michael (not Fairman)

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).

Lori
Lori

MM is the only choice!!!

wolfsmistress
wolfsmistress

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 has to replace Michael Muhney as Adam Newman, I wish him a LOT of luck … the shoes he has to fill are going to be massive!
wolfy

damien
damien

pls, pls, producers get on your knees and bring back the original adam, Chris Engen!!!

He only left because the writers at the time were cartooning adam as a character with no redeeming qualities or moral compass! Chris Engen played adam as tortured and at odds with being the black sheep of the newman clan! Chris envisioned the son of hope adams as being misunderstood but not evil!!

as we’ve witnessed with the return of the original billy it is easier for the audience to transition a character if he is familiar!
I would look forward to the chemistry chris could have with Sharon or even Melissa ( Chelsea). Further down the line maybe a hot twisted love affair could happen between adam and Ashley, it looked like they were going there for a while, chris and Eileen had amazing chemistry, bring back Eilleen for this storyline and it would have several storyline possiblilities!!

Fran
Fran

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
k/kay

@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
Fran

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?

Michael (not Fairman)
Michael (not Fairman)

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 had been unhappy for quite some time, and that he had not quit on the spot but had in fact given them some notice.

Fran
Fran

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.

Mary SF
Mary SF

Aaron Newton?? Please, if you are trying to pretend this isn’t Adam be a bit more creative in name department and not insult everyone’s intelligence. That said, I am with most who have said there was only one actor who own the role and that was Michael. Whoever they pick will have to be amazing and then some, to get this viewer even half way convinced he is Adam. Whoever he is he should be prepare to get a lot of negative feedback, so he should be fully aware that he is not just taking a role, but all the baggage that comes with it. Good luck— personally I think they should have killed the character off, because without Micheal in the role, the character will never be as interesting or as vital as before. jmo.

Fran
Fran

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.

I’ve missed them both and would love to see one of them get this role. I might could even stomach EB and HK and watch again.

hmmm

The only actor to play the role of Adam Newman is Michael Muhney, none other.
All others will fail..
Michael Muhney is Adam .. there is no replacing him ..
I feel pity for the actor who tries to play Adam, the MM/Adam fans will not like it..

sonniorsolita
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.

Jimmy
Jimmy

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. I hope whoever they hire as Adam is able to carry the role the way MM did, unlike the way DT is doing now as Billy.

Elite Advisors
Elite Advisors

Yes, but the reacts have been gar from stellar of late…really not feeling the nu Billy….and poor nu Kyles ( 2) I would hate to be the next one yikes.

The future of the show will now be around Victor and Dylan as tiresome as it sounds.

I would LOVE LOVE Tristen R going head to head with this bully! I love Colin/ Robert ( from GH) He brings so much un to every role he plays….

Jimmy
Jimmy

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. We saw BM grow the character of Billy for 5 years, and now it seems we’re going back in time with David Tom and I’m not a fan so far.

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.

That being said, I don’t see TSJ returning to soaps anytime soon. He wouldn’t even commit to the rebooted OLTL. I always felt that he was looking to do work outside soaps and it seems he is getting his chance.

All the seasoned male soap actors including TSJ are not stupid, and would not submit themselves to the backlash from attempting to replace MM..
It can’t be done and no actor would want to step into that still steaming pile.. They know the wrath of soap fans and what they demand, and replacing MM/Adam would be a coffin nail..

MICHAEL MUHNEY PLEASE!!!!! Mm was the reason I started watching y&r. No one can do him justice, he will always be ADAM in my eyes. And yes, whever lands tthe recast has huge shoes to fill and a lot to live upp too. I wantt a recast justt bwcause I miss adams character and would love to see it go on as long aas the new actor does it justice. I know these actors are all primetime, but for selfish reasons I would suggest these 3 as a fantasy because they have so much sex appeal, a sarcastic and a dark demeanor like adam did… LOVE IAN SOMERHALDER, JESSE METCALFE, MARK-PAUL GOSSELAAR lol ;). But on a serious note… I wish they would at least let MM come back or have a say in who getts to resume Adam. Y&R don’t screw this up!!!!Ttrevor if anything seems most realistic option.

Y&R has been so easy to forget

January 31, 2014 was the lights out… click boom… I still haven’t tuned in

I’ll probably tune in to see Cady McClain… if she hasn’t started already

I celebrate Michael Muhney…. he was salivating… turn on… uber hot… the bomb… in all things relevant for Talent… he should have been featured, showcased… kept… with benefits… what have you

I celebrate his belonging in this industry

Adam Newman = Mr. Michael Muhney

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.

Michael Muhney was 6 ft … anybody shorter would be hard to take given the characters stature. Tom Pelphrey is close to the same height as MM and has the brooding, black sheep son act down pat.

Jenny Brooks

Frankly, I’m surprised that someone hasn’t already been chosen….or hadn’t already been chosen when MM was fired. I wish the new guy luck. Lots of rumors flying around that Trevor St. John or Jon Hensley would be getting the part. Time will tell.

I would love to see MM join General Hospital as a recast of Jason, newly resurrected and remembering only his life as Jason Quartermaine.

I think Michael M. should NEVER have been fired in the first place. Shame on you Ms.Jill (the writer) Get rid of the following people and get NEW actors and BETTER story lines: Cane/Lily, Kevin, Michael.Lauren, Neill/whoever, Colin…. the list goes on and on… need any help???

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.
