Hands Newman will soon turn into Justin Hartley! That’s right! The very popular actor takes over the key role of Adam Newman on-air on the upcoming November 5th episode of The Young and the Restless!
In a new interview with TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan, Hartley gives a small glimpse of just how the new look Adam Newman gets back into the story … having had complete plastic surgery of course!
As fans know, Adam has been in hiding and spying on his wife Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) who is getting deeper and deeper into a red hot relationship with Adam’s nemesis Billy Abbott (Burgess Jenkins). And from the sounds of it and from what fans have heard rumblings of, Adam ain’t working alone, and according to this feature he is not moving around himself so well, to which Hartley said, “He (Adam) seems to have a little army, which means he’s still got his hands on some cash. I’m assuming these people don’t work for free.”
Hartley also told TVG the set-up that gets Adam back in story high-gear: “Chelsea finds the surveillance cam he put in their son’s nursery and she disables it. Now he can no longer be a creeper. He can’t spy on his family anymore so, even though he’s not fully recovered from his accident, he must get back to town quickly, especially after he hears Chelsea talking about Billy moving in. The control freak in him can’t stand it. So, basically, Adam had a five-step plan to get back his life that would have played out over the course of a couple of years, but now he’s jumping right to Step 5.”
As for how the writers are going to clean up the mess that Adam was responsible for the hit and run accident that killed little Delia last year, Justin responded: (Laughs) “I”m leaving that problem to the writers! There’s definitely damage control to be done. ”
So what do you think of what you know of the story of Adam being re-introduced to the Y&R canvas in the form of Justin Hartley? How do you think the writers will sustain the character, and keep him out of jail from running down little Delia? Share your thoughts below!
