    The Young and the Restless: Michael Muhney as Adam!

    Friday, May 29 2009


    Michael as Adam (Sean Smith)
    Well, Soaps.com readers, the energetic and enthusiastic actor Michael Muhney has begun taping on the set of The Young and the Restless in the role of Adam Wilson. His first airdate is said to be June 25.

    Of course, Chris Engen recently decided to leave the show, and Michael Muhney (Veronica Mars) was hired to jump in. Of his new job, Muhney says, "My first day on the set was crazy and fun and quite a wild ride. I had to hit the ground running at full speed. I think I need a new pair of shoes, but in these economic times I'll just have my shoes resoled."

    Muhney also said, "I'm honored to be a part of such an iconic piece of work and I can't wait to sink my teeth into this thing." It sounds like Michael is happy with the challenge, as he has told his followers on Twitter that he is thrilled with his first scripts.

    Soaps.com is pleased to bring you this first look at Michael Muhney on the set at Victor's Ranch as Adam. For more information on the actor, visit his Official Website!

    Do you think Michael's Adam looks more like Hope than Victor? Weigh in below!

    I like his looks. I hope he'll stay. Michael was great on Veronica Mars.

    Hmm maybe Hope. I think he has an edgy look to him that may work in his favour!

    I have to agree with the other posters, I think his looks are better for the role of Adam. I always felt that Chris Engen looked like a boy and as far as acting ability goes, well to me it was less than desirable. I believe Michael Muhney will play the part well and that the storyline will be interesting and touch on topics that are relevant.

    I recall when soaps were willing to touch the so called third rail of current events. There was AMC with the Vietnam war,on other soaps there have been stories of rape, spousal abuse and other topics which make for a better discussion than just "who is doing who."

    OMG! I was behind the times and didn't know about Engen's departure until I watched the show today (6/25)! Boy, was I ever PLEASANTLY surprised to see ol' Sheriff Lamb playing Adam Wilson! Way to go! Make it your own! I think Michael Muhney is a much better cast for this role; I never did buy Engen's face as being so devious, but I can certainly buy into Muhney in this role! Yay!
