It seems like forever ago since the news of Justin Hartley joining the cast of CBS' "The Young and the Restless" as Adam Newman first came to light, but in less than two weeks fans will finally find out what the character has been up to when he's not shown snooping around Genoa City while trying to keep tabs on the love of his life - Chelsea Newman (Melissa Claire Egan) - and their child. On Wednesday, November 5, Hartley begins his journey on the daytime drama series when Adam works his way back into the world of the living, and in this newly released promo highlighting his debut viewers will come to realize "you can't keep a bad man down."

When Soap Opera Network broke the news that Justin Hartley’s first airdate as Adam Newman would be Wednesday, November 5, it felt like the actor’s Genoa City premiere date couldn’t come fast enough. And now that the actor has finally spoken up about joining the sudser in a new interview, the anticipation is even greater! Some fans have expressed their fear that taking over the role — which was previously played by Michael Muhney — will be an uphill battle for the actor, and guess what? He’s not only aware of the challenges, but is tackling them head on!

Hot on the heels of the news that Hallmark’s “Signed, Sealed and Delivered” will be moving to the network’s Movies and Mysteries channel comes word that former “The Bold and the Beautiful” actor Brandon Beemer (ex-Owen Knight; ex-Shawn Brady, “Days of our Lives”) will be appearing in a Hallmark Movies and Mysteries film!

As they celebrated their first anniversary as hosts of "Soap Box with Lilly & Martha" on Thursday, August 21, former daytime soap stars Lilly Melgar ("General Hospital") and Martha Madison ("Days of our Lives") had soap journalist Michael Maloney, talent manager Michael Bruno and online soap reporter Michael Fairman on as guests as they discussed the week's biggest soap opera news. No story was bigger this past week than the news of Justin Hartley ("Passions," "Revenge," "Mistresses") returning to daytime television to portray a recast Adam Newman on CBS' "The Young and the Restless." According to Bruno, however, there was a chance that the role could have gone to Hartley's former "Smallville" co-star Tom Welling, "Sex and the City's" Jason Lewis or "Queer as Folk's'" Gale Harold.

The soap world was hit this morning with the exciting news that “Smallville” and “Mistresses” star Justin Hartley (ex-Fox Crane) has been cast as “The Young and the Restless’” Adam Newman. Early reaction to the casting news seems to be positive thus far, and that goes for former portrayer Michael Muhney’s response, as well!

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. TV Guide's Michael Logan is reporting that "Smallville" and "Revenge" star Justin Hartley is returning to daytime television to assume the role of the devilish Adam just in time for the all important November sweeps ratings period. Hartley, who will report to the CBS Television Center studio where "Y&R" is filmed in late September, previously portrayed the role of Fox Crane on NBC's "Passions" from 2002 to 2006.

Best known for his stints on CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" and NBC's "Days of our Lives," actor Brandon Beemer is set to star in the Hallmark Movie Channel original movie, "Wedding Planner Mystery," which premieres tonight at 9:00 PM ET/8:00 PM CT. The film tells the story of Carnegie Kincaid, a young wedding planner who is framed for a crime and struggles to clear her name as she learns that love does not always arrive in a pretty package. The role of the wedding planner is played by Erica Durance, who is best known for her seven-year stint as Lois Lane on The WB/CW drama series, "Smallville." Beemer plays Holt Walker, a mystery man that may have something to do with the crime Carnegie's being framed for. This, however, does not deter her from falling for Holt.

Whoa, baby! “The Young and the Restless’” Genoa City is getting a brand new OB/GYN: “Supergirl” film star Helen Slater, who’ll be playing the role of Dr. Chiverton for at least five episodes.

Former “Passions” star Justin Hartley (ex-Nicholas Foxworth Crane) is like a can of Pringles: Once he pops, he can’t be stopped! Hot on the heels of gigs on shows like “Revenge” and “Smallville” comes news that the star has added a new series to his resume: ABC’s “Mistresses!”

Fans of ABC's "Revenge" might recall that the primetime soap ended on several cliffhangers, one of which was Victoria Grayson (Madeline Stowe) coming face to face with her forgotten son, Patrick. While we didn't get to see his face, there's a perfectly good reason why. The soap only just cast the actor to take on the role! On Friday, July 12, it was announced that Justin Hartley ("Passions," "Arrow", "Emily Owens M.D.," "Smallville") would portray the character that could be the saving grace Victoria needs in light of some family controversies and murders, or he could be the devil ready to get his own revenge on mommy dearest.
