69 June 14th, 2014 Cameron Mathison Clears Up Rumors: “There Is Absolutely NO Indication That I Am Going To Y&R To Play Adam Newman!”

Courtesy/Twitter

Over the past several weeks, and in the rumor mill, has been that Cameron Mathison visited the set of the CBS soap opera, The Young and the Restless. While there he auditioned, or was taking a meeting, to be considered as a recast for the role of Adam Newman, last played by fired star Michael Muhney.  Still other reports surfaced that said Mathison may have visited the soap in regards to another role.

Early this morning, Mathison tweeted a response to all of those fans who have been inquiring of the former All My Children (Ex-Ryan Lavery) heartthrob, and current entertainment news correspondent and actor if he was indeed in the running to be the next black sheep of the Newman clan.

Cameron posted this statement on Twitter:  “Just to clear up some rumors … There is absolutely NO indication that I am going to Y&R to play Adam Newman. Thanks for all the support tho.”

So, for all intent and purposes, it looks like Mathison becoming Adam is just plain false, but could he still be in the running for another part in GC?   Share your thoughts below!

    With all due respect to Cameron, I had grown to hate Ryan by the time AMC went off the air. He just didn’t convey emotional complexity very well, which made all the stories about the Lavery family painful to sit through (thank goodness for the ff button!), and I found the Rylee pairing incredibly boring. I think he makes a better TV host than actor and from what little I’ve seen of Y&R’s Adam, he wouldn’t have been good for that role. I do find the wording suspicious, though. He doesn’t deny being up for a different Y&R role, does he?

    I so agree with your comments and essentially stopped watching AMC because of the “Ryan” show. He is definitely not a good fit for a character like Adam, IMO.

    I agree, in that I also prefer him as a TV host and reporter. My favorite
    pairing with him on AMC was with Gillian……after that, I just didn’t care
    that much what his character was up to. I hope Mathison finds other
    success in hosting/reporting venues, rather than in Genoa City!

    I never saw him act on a soap. I saw him on DWTS and wanted to throw my TV out the window!

    I totally understand and agree with you on this one, because, as a fan of All My Children since the mid 1970s, Ryan was, IMO an A@#HOLE to Greenlee or Kendall, and when he first arrived in Pine Valley, he was arrogant, egomaniacal, cocky, and rude. And no, Y&R doesn’t need another recast!

    His overwhelming denouncement of this means that he is the new Adam Newman.

    Whitney S replied

    Mathison isn’t the level of actor Michael Muhney is. Adam Newman became a force on Y&R due to Muhney’s talent. Anybody other than Muhney is a lost cause for Y&R.

    Adam Newman isn’t a newbie though. He’s Victor’s son who we saw as an infant and a toddler and now he’s a grown man. He is the son of one of the most essential characters on the show. Nothing newbie about Adam.

    You’re right, of course.
    I wasn’t clear in my post.
    I meant I wouldnt want this actor
    to play a new character on Y and R.

    no matter who they put in as Adam Newman it will never work, Michael Muhney owned that part and unless he comes back Y&R will tank worse than what it already has. Bottom Line.

    If he doesnt go back to Y&R I pray he goes to GH as Jason. He would be great!

    Hot if he is leaning up against a stove! Besides, he doesnt fit the role of Adam as we know him.

  6. BTripp says:

    He was probably just visiting one of his numerous friends and former co-workers (from AMC) that now work at Y&R. I don’t think it would be a good idea to put him as Adam because there would be too many comparisons to Ryan and Annie (with Missy Claire Egan).

    He was there to interview Cady McClain for Entertainment Tonight. The interview aired a couple of weeks ago.

    Cameron was interviewing Caddy McCain about her new book on set at Y&R for Entertainment Tonight. Some idiot in the soap press saw him there and made up the rest of the false story of him being the new Adam Newman. These soap rags are as bad as the Enquirer or Globe.

    Cameron would not be a good recast Adam but he would kinda of make a good recast Jason on GH because he kinda of looks like the EX Jason who is now Dylan on Y&R

    Cameron is not that older than The original Jason they look like the same age so that would work out if Cameron would of been up to it Steve Burton(EX Jason was Born in 1970)while Cameron in 1969 so they are around the same age so that would work so cameron is not too old to play Jason.

  15. PatF says:

    Yeah…and Stafford also said her going to GH was a rumor before it happened…

    Exactly, he said there was no indication he would be Adam, but he didn’t deny auditioning for the role– so all he is really saying is he hasn’t gotten the gig yet– that they may or may not hire him, he doesn’t know. But I bet he was there having a discussion about it– otherwise he would just come out and say I am not going to be the new Adam because I didn’t auditioned for it.

    Y&R is making another huge mistake by attempting to replace Michael Muhney, can’t be done..

    CBS is looking for someone to volunteer for a Kamikaze mission

    They should just let the Adam charcter be dead..

    Good, he wouldn’t have been a good Adam. The only other actor besides Michael Muhney that I can see playing the role in Trevor St. John.

    This is the absolute first “rumor” I’ve seen about this. So where are all the other “rumors” that are supposed to be floating around? Is this how you get a “rumor” started?

    Anyway, NO, just NO. Cam would NOT make a good Adam. PERIOD!

    Good Lord, Cameron doesn’t have an ounce of darkness or complexity about him/ They might as well get Ryan Seacrest to play Adam.

    I noticed he didn’t say he isn’t going to Y&R, just that there’s no current indication he would play Adam. I’d still like to see Trevor St. John play Adam; he’d be fantastic! Wonder if he’s available.

    Barbara from Atlanta replied

    I noticed that as well. “No indication” that he was taking over the role of Adam. That seems like a good denial that he won’t be in that role but an implied confirmation that he is in talks about being on the show in another part.

    He doesn’t say absolutely that he is NOT in discussions about a job with Y&R. If that was that was the case, his comment is strangely worded.

    Acting is tough. Especially if someone steps into the role and makes it their own. Ask Chris Egan and David Thom. Two good actors who have tried or attempted to fill Billy Miller or Michael Muhney’s shoes.

  23. Kristi says:

    “There is no indication…”? That doesn’t sound like a denial to me. It sounds a lot like he can neither confirm nor deny that he may or may not be up for a job that may or may not be Adam Newman, which makes the tweet meaningless.

    Oxford Dictionaries
    indication;
    A sign or piece of information that indicates something:
    There is no sign, indication, evidence, truth that indicates anything…
    In other words..
    It is all fan imagination/gossip with no truth or fact – it is BS……………..

    Reply

    Kristi replied

    Thanks. I know what the word means. But indication can only come from those in the know, not the fans, and all he’s saying is that those in the know have not given any sign, evidence, hint, or suggestion that he is joining the show–yet. It doesn’t mean he isn’t, and maybe he’s not, just that they haven’t indicated that he is.

    su0000 replied

    LOL he seems to be saying;
    where in hell do the fans get these wild notions from, there is no such thing happening..
    Some fans and their accusations and rumors staring must drive the soap stars crazy LOL
    He hasn’t a clue as to where or how the false rumor got started, but it easy to see how it spreads; the soap boards lol ..
    He is not going to any soap, he has too much going career wise and needs a lot of wide open time to do it all.. being tied down in a soap does not seem to be what Cameron is looking for..

    Bring Michael Muhney back or just kill Adam Newman off. No one can replace Muhney. He made the character into the force on the show. Why else did Braeden hate him so much? The old German was jealous as hell. Everyone knows that.

    As far as we know since CBS said NOTHING about MM’s work behavior, he is innocent. Bring him back and give him a raise!

    I think CBS said plenty on how they viewed Michael Muhney’s work behavior when they declined to pick up his contract. That’s kind of the ultimate statement.

    There is also no indication that he possesses the acting chops to pull off the role of Adam Newman—at least not based on what I saw during his years on AMC. That does not mean, of course, that TPTB would not be stupid enough to try it.

    I too find the wording of his tweet to be rather curious.

    I’d almost wish they’d try it, for the entertainment value, since the backstage goings-on continue to be far more interesting than what anybody is putting on the screen–but I don’t wish that kind of grief on Cameron Mathison, who from what I understand is a nice enough guy.

    BINGO! His fans will be upset you feel this way but its not as much a knock on Cameron is it is a compliment to Michael Muhney. He is an amazing actor and he was THE next in line to step into the legacy of Y&R as in Eric Braden. MM character would have been on this show for 30 years!

    He should come on Days of our lives. With major actors leaving, Days is going to have to keep trying some new things to keep some of us coming back to see what is going on. If they do not do this, they may fall into the doldrums.

    I have to agree with others – I watch AMC for years (and Years and years) and to be honest Ryan was kind of a one layerd character, to whom the show devoted too much air time – I got kind of tired of the Ryan-Greenlee-Kendall triangle, it was played to death. I don’t dislike Cameron at all, I just didn’t find him to be a terribly interesting actor to watch.

    I would love to see Cameron Mathison in either one of the Soap Operas: Young and Restless or General Hospital. It was wonderful that he played in some great Hallmark movies and a couple Lifetime movies. Would love to see him get a full-time role on some show…..
