Quote JRTA: He has stated a couple times on Twitter that he is NOT the new Adam. His character is "Mark Harding".
I don't know if I believe that.
OR his character is called Mark Harding because Adam is in hiding and that's his alias. Neither the actor or writers would be lying then, would they? :)
CM tweeted a while back that he would be playing the roll of Mark Harding for several months. Then it would be discovered that he is Adam Newman..
Actually this is what he tweeted.

@Samuelrogers19 I'm not playing billy or Adam
. I'm playing Mark Harding, new character.
When he originally tweeted that he would be on Y&R he said "will be returning to soaps for a little while"
