Michael Muhney (ex-Adam Newman, "The Young and the Restless") has been spending a lot of time in Vancouver of late and it's for good reason: the actor has landed a role on ABC's upcoming drama, "The Good Doctor."
After months (and months and months) of anticipation, the moment soap fans have been waiting for has finally happened: “The Young and the Restless’” Adam Newman has returned to the canvas with the official reveal of <strong>Justin Hartley</strong> in the role!
With a slew of soap weddings under her belt, a run at playing “crazy” and nearly a decade of daytime experience between “The Young and the Restless” and “All My Children,” a back-from-the-dead storyline is no big thang for “Y&R’s” <strong>Melissa Claire Egan </strong>(Chelsea Lawson). Except for when the back-from-the-dead character happens to be her alter ego’s kid-killing husband, and that same guy’s real-life recast happens to be one of the most talked about soap events of the year! So just how is Egan taking in all of the madness surrounding Adam’s big return from the “dead,” including the fact that the character is now being played by <strong>Justin Hartley</strong>? <em>Soap Opera Network</em> caught up with the actress to find out!
Now that “The Young and the Restless’” newest castmember, <strong>Justin Hartley</strong>, has been given the all-clear to start commenting on taking over the role of Adam Newman, he’s letting ‘er rip!

When <em>Soap Opera Network</em> <a href="https://www.soapoperanetwork.com/2014/09/exclusive-justin-hartleys-first-airdate-revealed-10-things-adam-missed-maybe-missed-since-presumed-dead" target="_blank">broke the news</a> that <strong>Justin Hartley</strong>’s first airdate as Adam Newman would be <strong>Wednesday, November 5</strong>, 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 <strong>Michael Muhney</strong> — 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!
In an exclusive <a href="http://www.tvweeklogieawards.com.au/insider/blog/2014/9/soap-scandals,-dance-classes,-and-moving-poetry/" target="_blank">interview </a>with Australia's <em>TV Week Soap Extra</em>, "The Young and the Restless'" <strong>Michael Muhney</strong> (ex-Adam Newman) has point blank denied the allegations that he groped the breasts of one of his former co-stars, which was reportedly the reason show producers opted to drop him from his contract last December. "I didn't want to be desperately screaming: 'I didn't do it!’” Muhney told the publication in its newest issue as to why it took him so long to defend himself after staying silent for so long. “The rumour was untrue," he continued.
The soap opera world has been abuzz all morning over the big news that “Smallville” and “Mistresses” star Justin Hartley (ex-Fox Crane, “Passions”) has been cast as “The Young and the Restless’” Adam Newman, and it’s not just fans who are voicing their opinions over the casting announcement: The stars of daytime have taken to social media to share their thoughts on the news, which further lays to rest any hope that former portrayer Michael Muhney will return to the popular role. Read on to see what kind of comments are flying around about Hartley’s new gig — including one from Muhney himself!
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.
