    I personally would like to see Cameron Mathison recast as Adam Newman, Let Adam be the good guy he was trying to be before the car crash.

    I would love to see Cameron Mathison on Y&R,as a re-cast or new character,would make no difference to me,he is a good actor.

    I think Cameron Mathison would be perfect. For one reason because he has already been in soaps and also has been opposite Melissa Claire Egan on All My Children.

    He also has beautiful blue eyes like MM did. IMO he would be an excellent choice and hopefully all the MM fans would accept him.

    Unless they change the Adam character to be more upbeat I don't see him as Adam.

    He is no Adam. He's lackluster in his performances. If they want to bring him on, let him be a new character.

    BLECH!! He couldn't be 'Adam' if he tried!! He's too milquetoast and stiff, w/absolutely NO flair, nor can he deliver those wry zingers like MM! If they make that mistake, it will totally ruin Adam! So what if he played opposite MCE on AMC??

    I don't want to offend anyone when I say this, I would like to see new people come in but don't forget the ones you already have and also don't you think you should finish some of the old storylines before you bring new people.

    I watched CM and MCE on AMC and all I can say is this is Y&R. Don't turn it into something it is not. What about all the veteran actors on this show? Bring back the real Y&R and not this shell of show that's going on now. They need to find an Adam but not CM. He doesn't fit. They can bring him on as some other character if they want to but not Adam.

    He can come BUT better not be as Adam....wouldn't be his fault though.

    He might make a good Adam. Whoever they recast as Adam we have to give them a chance. This show doesn't need any new characters. It has too many useless characters right now. The writers need to get busy and end these stupid S/Ls. Who cares how they end them. They have dragged them all out so long. What this show needs is to get rid of JFP AND THE WRITERS. You could get the best actors in daytime and give them these lame S/Ls and it would still be horrible. IMO
