  • BREAKING NEWS: Justin Hartley is ‘Y&R’s’ New Adam Newman

    He's been prancing around Genoa City only showing his hands to viewers, while the rest of the town thinks he's dead, but Adam Newman is most certainly returning to CBS' "The Young and the Restless" in the coming months with a new face after supposedly dying in a fiery explosion in late January as played by actor Michael Muhney.

In fact, with Grace being in revealing clothing so much during her tenure on the soap back in the day, anyone could recognize Gareis solely based on body and hair style (yes, Grace had plenty of fun with several of Genoa City's hottest men).
