There’s been a lot of onscreen talk about the possibility of “The Young and the Restless’” Adam Newman having survived the car crash that presumably killed him, meaning there’s a chance the show will in fact be recasting the character. And according to a recent casting call put out by the sudser, they’re on the hunt for a dashing leading man. But will it be a replacement for Michael Muhney, who departed the role in January?

Soap Opera Digest reports that the casting department is searching for a character by the name of Aaron Newton, and not only does his name sound like Victor’s son, the description sounds a lot like him, too! “Caucasian Male. MID 30s to LATE 30s. A very handsome, very SEXY, very appealing, very charming LEADING MAN,” states the casting call for the contract role, which would begin taping in May. “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.”

But what do you think? Is the show recasting Adam? And if so, who would you like to see step into the character’s shoes? Let us know in the comment section below!
