The Young and the Restless Spoilers: Michael Muhney – Adam Newman Casting Update – Cameron Mathison, Trevor St. John or Another Actor?

The Young and the Restless Spoilers: Michael Muhney - Adam Newman Casting Update - Cameron Mathison, Trevor St. John or Another Actor?

The search for a new Adam Newman on The Young and the Restless appears to be at a standstill, or else TPTB have managed to keep the casting a total secret (which is unlikely considering how high-profile the role is). Regardless, Jill Farren Phelps is going to have to make an announcement soon, because Y&R fans are growing impatient with just scenes of Adam Newman’s hands.

At first, we thought TPTB at the CBS soap opera were just being clever and only showing Adam Newman’s hands to build up for a big reveal in the future. But, now it has become clear that their motives behind the infamous scenes are simple, they aren’t showing Adam Newman’s face because they don’t have an actor play Adam Newman yet! We decided to put together a list of all of the rumored Michael Muhney replacements for Y&R fans, check it out below and let us know which casting you are hoping comes to fruition.

Michael Muhney: Some loyal Muhney fans are clinging to hope that he has settled his differences with TPTB at The Young and the Restless and has been given back his iconic role as Adam Newman. Although it sounds far-fetched, the June 19th edition of Soap Opera Digest reported that Muhney was seen on the set of Y&R, making the possibility of Muhney returning to the soap opera a reality. Amidst all of the drama over the hands scenes on The Young and the Restless, Muhney took to Twitter and posted a photo of his own hands, further fueling rumors that he had been recast.

Cameron Mathison: All My Children alum Cameron Mathison was also spotted on the set of Y&R recently, and is rumored to be in talks with TPTB over an upcoming role on the soap opera. Ironically, on All My Children, Mathison played the part of Ryan Lavery and was married to Melissa Claire Egan’s character Annie. So, the pair definitely has some chemistry and would make a great couple on The Young and the Restless. Some fans have been skeptical about Cameron Mathison joining the cast: he’s a great actor but doesn’t exactly have the “bad boy” market cornered.

Trevor St. John: Back in February when it was revealed on The Young and the Restless that Adam Newman was actually still alive, rumors began running rampant as to which actor would land the role. Although there was never any solid evidence pertaining to this theory, a persistent rumor that just didn’t seem to die was that Y&R was looking at One Life To Live alum Trevor St. John for the part.

So Y&R fans, those are the three main rumors regarding the role of Adam Newman. Which actor would you prefer to see in the role? Michael Muhney, Cameron Mathison, or Trevor St. John? Although Muhney supporters have campaigned for weeks to get their favorite actor back on Y&R, do they really want him to go back to a show that tarnished his reputation and treated him so poorly? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

    Unequivocally 100% Michae Muhney…ANY other actor attempting this Role would be an absolute Joke And would never be accepted. .Muhney owns and Made The Character who he is and brought him to life and made us Love Someone who was supposed to be unlovable…He is the ONLY 1 to bring Adam “back to life”..#IRREPLACEABLE #ONLY1ADAM #NOADAMRECAST

    Please proof read your articles! It was June 9 issue…June 19 is too far out. There’s no question for me; it NEEDS to be Michael Muhney but I know it won’t be him. Jill Farren Phelps didn’t go through all she DID to rehire MM. That woman is the most disgusting woman I’ve ever heard of!! Why on earth did Sony hire he?

  3. libra says:

    Yes, Michael muhney should take back his role as Adam Newman. A good man shall never fail no matter what his enemy plans or trys. …. Y&R cannot survive without Michael muhney as ADAM… hell no…

  4. RedRiver38 says:

    Bring Michael Muhney back. The show has been horrible since he left.

  5. Elizabeth Marshall says:

    Michael is the only choice.

  6. Linda Archer says:

    I really don’t get why you are putting up with so much from this writer! She has taken what use to be the number 1 show in the soap opera’s, and made it the worst and. most boring show I have ever watched!! Why would you allow her to get rid of all the good character’s? She has single handedly ruined this show!! If you aren’t going to bring back the old Adam then bring the next best thing, Trevor St. John! He would make a great one! Plus, enough with putqting every fan you have left through hell waiting to see who you will choose!! It’s been long enough already!! I think she gets off on knowing the fans have had enough!” You have all these storylines that all us are waiting to see end but there is know ending in site????? Usually the writer tries to make the fans happy, but not this one!!

  7. Cheryl Luvs Y&R says:

    The only man to play Adam is Michael Muhney. That’s it! No one else! If they recast him, it will be the end of this wonderful 41 year old iconic show! I’d like to shake JFP, and ask her what her BLEEPING problem is. Why is this hag ruining our show? Bill Bell, God rest his beloved soul, is probably rolling in his grave over the controversy this woman has created as well as the immense damage she’s caused. She better beg, borrow and steal her way into getting Michael back on our show where he truly belongs. Then kick Hunter out on her lying butt. And if EB doesn’t approve, toss him too! Sorry for the hatespeach but I’m just explaining how I feel.

  8. wilson says:

    I’d be happy to hear you quit watching because that would mean Muhney was back! People like you are closed minded twits anyway.

  9. Tina Oliver says:

    Bring back MM!! The one who should be fired is JFP!! The show is just not the same since she started!! Why would CBS and Sony keep her.!.

  10. mom chez says:

    It’s time for the press to stop disparaging MM and start informing us of HHK’s despicable horrendous manipulations and lies.

  11. Lady Light says:

    If not Muhney, then please I Hope it is Trevor St John……the ultimate Bad Boy. Cameron is too suave to play the role.

  12. Lady Light says:

    This Billy has already been recast…..guess he won’t be coming back from Australia in the same face, at least I hope he won’t. but he has been fired.

  13. Lady Light says:

    I love Michael too, but there would be no ratings drop with Trevor St John. He is awesome as a bad boy…..and loveable too.

  14. Lady Light says:

    Totally agree. as much as I liked Michael, I like Trevor even more.

  15. Jeff says:

    I love Michael Muhney, but barring his return, Trevor St. John would be excellent in the role. It’s much to heavy and complicated a role for Cameron Mathison.

  16. Shelley says:

    I know Michael Muhney isn’t coming back but, seriously, he’s the only person that can portray Adam. Adam is a very complex, multi-dimentional character, and I think only Michael has the acting chops to bring him to life. I will not return to Y&R unless he returns.

  17. Shelley says:

    I totally agree with you, hun, but Michael didn’t grope anyone. He’s a total class act and would never grope a child or anyone else. He’s a family man and wouldn’t risk his career, his reputation or (most importantly) his family. If it doesn’t make sense it isn’t true. Hunter never said he did it (though she didn’t deny it either – which is very suspect). There’s a big conspiracy story here that we’ll probably never hear about. Crazy!

  18. Jmackie says:

    Whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty? Where’s the proof? Has he been convicted? We live in America, not the middle east(where I was born).

  19. Carrie Wendel says:

    Bring back Michael and I’d not Jill needs to stop being lazy and bring back Adam with someone even though I prefer it to be Michael. Adam needs needs and wants to be with his soulmate and son now. Team Muhney and Chadam.

  20. […] not forget that Chelsea’s not-so-dead husband Adam Newman is currently keeping tabs on her via spy cameras and private investigators, so if Chelsea and Billy […]

  21. JHW says:

    Bring MM back. He cannot be replaced.

  22. pittiemom says:

    FIRE JFP before she destroys any more of this show!! Hire Billy Miller & Michael Muhney back!!!

  23. Wayne says:

    What a stupid question. “Who should play Adam?” ddddaaaaaa…..
    We all know who the viewers want to play Adam.

  24. Shelley says:

    Umm, okay. Appreciate your opinion. Have a great day!

  25. […] rumors have emerged that Michael Muhney may be returning as Adam Newman on The Young and the Restless, nearly six months after he was scandalously fired and certain media […]

  26. will says:

    Just bring back Michael Muhney, he is the only one that can play that part.
