    Possible Recast For Y&R's Adam Newman Role?

    Tuesday, February 18 2014


    (FayesVision/Wenn.com)
    Adam's return.

    On December 17, 2013 actor Michael Muhney broke the news that he had been let go from his role as "The Young and the Restless'" Adam Newman, tweeting, "I'm so sorry. It breaks my heart to say this, but I was just let go from 'Y&R'. My last day on set is this Thursday."

    Muhney's controversial firing caused an uproar among "Y&R" viewers on social media, and even saw other actors get involved. One day after he was let go, in an interview with HuffPost TV Canada, Muhney stated that he had been told, "CBS and Sony want to give Adam a break for 3-6 months and then they'll bring him back with a different actor...He's not being killed off."

    In a recent scene in Genoa City, Adam appeared to be alive against all odds following the car wreck and explosion. Soaps.com wants to know, if the role of Adam Newman is indeed recast, who would you like to see play the part? Vote in our poll, and feel free to comment as well.

    Dylan Bruce is a great choice, but he's a regular on Orphan Black

    I think that summer should be let go and MM return... No other woman has ever complained about him until the girl from no where and her Mom that chomps on Gum everytime u see her.. sorry they just look like someone that come from the dumps and they type that would sue to get a secure spot.. My gut instincts are rarely wrong.. and I just think Summer is either lying or greatly exaggerating...... its time for fans to stand up and demand some things on these shows.. being that with out us your writers and actors would not have a job.....I say make them both take a lie detector.... Im not watching anymore.. I love Victor and from what I read he doesnt care for MM... so I think that was a deciding factor as well

    Summer Newman didn't do anything that resulted in MM's firing. That is the kind of reasoning that still keeps women and girls from reporting their molesters/rapists. IMO neither the character of Phyllis and/or Summer look like they came from the dumps.

    Dylan Bruce gets my vote

    Sadly, it's most likely that Michael is not returning. Remove him from the poll and hold a new vote.
