163 December 21st, 2013 Should Y&R Try To Nab Trevor St. John As The Recast Adam Newman?

As this week comes to a close, it surely was one of the saddest for soap fans of The Young and the Restless!  In one of the biggest shockers of the year, the extraordinarily talented and popular, Michael Muhney was let-go at the number one soap after four years of his memorable work as Adam Newman, one of the most complex characters on daytime that Muhney helped shape and define through various writing regime changes at Y&R!

There is no question that Muhney left his imprint on the role and raised the bar for any actor who would follow in his footsteps in the role of Adam.  That being said, in Muhney’s exit interview with Huff Post Canada TV, he revealed what we had heard, that the show ultimately plans to recast the role.  Muhney was told they wanted to give the role of Adam a rest for 3 to 6 months.  Will the CBS soap do that?  Or, will they recast sooner than that?  Right now, fans of the long-running daytime drama hope that somehow CBS and Sony will see the pushback they have gotten over their decision and reconsider and rehire Muhney!

And while it is heartbreaking to think of anyone else in the role, we tried to envision who else could step into a role so dark and riveting as Adam Newman.  And only one name stood out to us … that of Trevor St. John, the former Victor Lord Jr. of One Life to Live!  Now the questions are, would Y&R even approach Trevor?  If they did, would Trevor consider doing a major soap role in this juncture in his career?  St.  John’s acting sensibilities would seem to suit a role like this … the black sheep of the Newman clan.

In fact, we did some digging and found a video from a fan on YouTube which shows the commonality of the characters of Victor Lord Jr. and Adam Newman as played by St. John and Muhney with clips to the song, Three Days of Grace by Riot.

Watch the video below! Then, let us know if you think Trevor St. John could be a good fit for the role of Adam Newman if Y&R moves forward with recasting the role!

    Nope besides JFP has already picked her FOJ for this role! I am disgusted that you think we can just go along like little sheep to the slaughter I and a hell of a lot of other people are not going to take this bullshit soap columnists trying to taint MM because he did not file in to to your bullshit sickens me just keep on with your slander and let’s see what the lawyers say! I am a TSJ fan but this is not over by a long shot your trying to accuse MM of unspeakable acts so you can cover JFP makes me sick.

    This is more than likely true. I can see it being Timothy Gibbs or Rick Hearst.

    Besides, Trevor St. John, at 41 is too old. Adam Newman was born in 1995 and that would make him 18. The oldest he should be would be around 25 or 26.

    k/kay…your reply accidentally came to me and not Patrick…an honest mistake that happens…lol

    Harry replied

    Kay, always love your comments and agree with them as I do with this one. But I just have to defend Fairman because he has not utlilized smear like smear like tactics to discredit Michael. Fairman really lives up the first syllable of his name as he is always fair. I think you’re thinking of the other Michael, as in Michael Slogan.
    Joshua, while I don’t feel Adam should be recast at all, age isn’t really an obstacle for TSJ. Michael is 38, Trevor is 41 and Amelia (Victoria) is 41 or 42. He is in the ball park as far as age is concerned and Y&R has been notorious for not paying fedelity to chronological age.
    Again, I vote for no recast at all, but if push came to show, Roger Howarth is the only actor who is remotely capable of challenging this very complex and dark role.

    AFTER WATCHING THE Video there no doubt that he would be perfect for the role . I WOULD LOVE TO SEE IT HE IS ONLY 4TH OLDER THAN Micheal

    Patrick I wanted to say in my remarks I was not attacking you. It might have came off that way and sorry I am just really tired of all this in my opinion libel garbage being thrown out there over MM. So I am going to take the advice that I gave some of the actors and soap columnists and shut up about it. We will never know the true story and I for one do not care anymore. Just hate how it went down and all the back biting and finger pointing. Personally CBS & Sony should have put a gag order on these people as far as I am concerned. I wish now that MM would have not said a word. Best to you !

    Patrick replied

    @k/kay.

    I figured as much. no worries.

    this news is still staggering….

    vets are one thing… but a truly gifted actor… fired…. ?

    thank you for telling us about Sharon Case’ heartfelt, beautiful, Tribute… to Michael Muhney….

    I simply went to YouTube… and found it….

    Man! all I know for certain… is how magnetic this pair… truly was!

    there are such a select few to cull from… that defy explanation

    Sharon and Adam.. had quality… in spades

    this is more than a trying time… to like Y&R…

    k/kay replied

    I apologize I did not mean to imply Mr. Fairman he is always a gentleman I was referring to the other one with TV Guide he has really been throwing matches on the fire. Plus a few others plus three actors take your pick can’t we just let the man go in peace? I think I will just quit watching the true colors of these people on the set are coming out and it is leaving a bad taste in my mouth. Maybe I should start watching Days for my fix! Now to get in the Christmas spirit I will leave on a positive note. Happy Holidays Soap Fans and Mr. Fairman our host!!!

    Donald replied

    I have no idea who any of these people are. Except TSJ. Did anyone see him on the Client List? No. As for GH YR BB DOOL, I really don’t give a ****. (Darn) ;-o I have tried to watch each of these and they make me want to shove a pencil in my eye. (Not really, but they are really awful.) I want OLTL back, but it think it’s time to smell the **** and put it out of our misery and re-place the RIP next to it’s name. it’s not coming back. And AMC, too. ;-)

    Me too….I don’t think it’s fair to MM for the fans to be left ‘guessing’ what happened. It smears his name even more, with all the innuendos and finger pointing i.e. Melody Thomas Scott…the fact that her husband is one of the Producers of the show should have been all the more reason why she should have kept her mouth firmly shut. I sincerely hope MM has a string of good Lawyers. I’m done with Y&R after 26 years.

    I would love a Sharon and Adam reunion. never liked Chelsea so for me I wasn’t even watching Adam these days with this horrific story of killing a child and Adam with chelsea no way. Adam loved Sharon not Xhelsea. That was a mistake to have him have a baby with Chelsea.

    Two problems with that idea; 1. GH is already way too bloated with cast and 2. GH doesn’t seem to know what to do with thhe OLTL 3 they already have. They’d probably make Trevor Franco’s crazier brother or something idiotic like that.

    I’ve watched Y&R for over 25 years faithfully. Have seen favourite actors leave and be recast. I don’t recall feeling the true sorrow I’ve felt this week with Michael Muhney’s firing. In fact, all I’ve done is tape the show since hearing the news, haven’t had the heart to watch Adam knowing the weeks ahead will end with the final scenes on Jan. 30th. So, to replace the character is a problem given the fan’s outrage at the firing.
    I believe very soon the Phyllis replacement will have to occur and along with that the Billy Abbott replacement too. A lot to ask that within probably a month or two later, a replacement for one of the most loved (and hated) characters in Adam, who Michael Muhney created with such expertise.
    I cannot even consider a replacement actor, not to insult Trevor St John, as talented as he is.

    She would look more like her sister Avery that is for sure. But Michelle Stafford has been Phyllis for 16 yrs. That is a hard pill to swallow. So is having Adam/ Michael Muhney and Billy /Billy Miller being replaced :’( WE LOVE THESE PEOPLE PLAYING THESE CHARACTERS. REALLY SHOULD BE A LITTLE MORE FLEXIBLE AND NOT BELIEVE EVERYTHING PEOPLE SAY. INNOCENT UNTIL “PROVEN” GUILTY. At least that is ALWAYS what I thought the saying was!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Goodbye Y & R you HAD a good run.

    Kay replied

    Well said. I have watched this show since its inception in the summer of 1973. I am heartbroken. I haven’t felt this way about an actor no longer playing a role since Brenda Dickson left the show or when David Hasselhoff took over for William Gray Espy. I do not like that Sharon and Nick are moving back towards each other, I do not like the secret Sharon keeps and I especially do not like the man that Victor continues to be. I miss Katherine immensely. I need a Phyllis fix. I will be doubly heartbroken when Billy Miller leaves. It may be my time to leave the show now too.

    I agree plz leave Michael Muhney in the role as Adam he has done such a great job…Hate to see Billy being replaces also… To many changes causes disinterest.

  7. KatieK says:

    TSJ, is the only person I could even think of to play Adam. But, lets face it, Y&R has a LOT to fix. I truly think that Y&R thought bringing on Steve Burton would fix everything. They created this boring character & awful storyline JUST for Steve, & ended up writing out MM, as Adam. They have made almost every character on that show a mess. They tell the same stories over & over. At this point do the fans even care about Victor & Nikki?

    I really like Trevor St. John. He is a great actor, however, if he is approached by these hacks and offered the role of Adam Newman I hope he is smart enough to turn them down. What good decent actor would want to become a part of all of this nonsense? As soon as Michael Muhney’s last scenes air I plan to drop this show anyway.

    If we can’t get MM his job back and the role is to be recast then yes TSJ would be ideal.
    He has the look, the mannerisms, and he is a heavy hitter and could slip right in to this role.
    IF not TSJ then I don’t think any other recast could pull it off. JMO

    He was the first guy I thought of that would be an acceptable recast but is he an FOJ? My guess is the soap killer will cast the likes of Brandon Barash and if so, I definitely won’t be watching.

    I’ve often said that TSJ and MM favored each other, only TSJ is blonde. And, Victor Lord, Jr. on OLTL and Victor Newman, Jr. (Adam) on Y&R have similar personalities. As a fan of both shows, both characters, and both actors, I often have said that I could see them playing each other’s roles. That’s a good thought.

    Michael Muhney defined Adam Newman on Y&R. The best thing they should do is either kill the character off in an ambiguous way that could open the door of an eventual return. Hopefully, TPTB will bring Muhney back after a time out and every one has chilled out. Y&R is damaged goods from this whole debacle. The brand has suffered in a negative way that I have never seen. There has to be a way for Sony & CBS to understand that the unprecedented genuine outpouring of support for Muhney from the fans must be considered too important to ignore. A recast now would only provoke the audience.

    When I spoke to Michael Muhney on the phone in 2012 I told him I was attracted to his acting because I saw a similarity in styles and looks with that of Trevor St John who I absolutely adore and am a member of his fan club. I attended a fan appreciation gathering for TSJ in 2011 and one of the questions that was asked him: would he consider another soap? His answer was positive. But I’m torn. To me, Adam IS Michael Muhney. No other. And the manner in which MM was ousted would not set well with TSJ who is a very principled actor who stands up for other actors, especially when they are fired for no apparent reason. But could TSJ take on the role of Adam Newman and make it his–absolutely!

    I am so frustrated because I want to know the exact reason Michael was fired. What did he say or do that was so terrible that they would fire such a talented and loved actor? Also, is there any possibility that they would rehire him because so many fans have threatened to stop watching? Has that ever happened before in the history of soap operas?

    I am a HUGE Trevor fan and how he never won an Emmy is a huge travesty but that being said, I don’t see him wanting to take on a role so similar to the one he has already played on OLTL. Also, I think he is a little too old for the role and for a pairing with Melissa Claire Egan not that they would have to reunite them. It’s just something that would be considered for sure.

    I love Michael Muhney and I want to see him stay on Y&R in the role of Adam however with all the drama and rumors surrounding his exit, I find a rehire probably not in the works for him despite the fan outrage. I hate rumors because you never know how much of any of it is true. However, I do find the fact that CBS, Y&R and Sony have not issued a statement or made an announcement incredibly strange.

    All I know is that Muhney has created Adam to be the equivalent to the female, Carly on GH…it takes a talented Powerhouse of an Actor to pull off a role as complex as Adam Newman so Good Luck to Y&R on their search…I think they will need 3-6 months just to find someone ~

    Harry replied

    Well said, Shawna. I think it would be a mistake to recast the role of Adam too. Why? Because time and time again the writers have painted him into a irredeemable corner. I never thought I would even want to look at that man again after he crossed dressed as Victor’s dead wife and scared Ashley into having a miscarriage. Then he seduces sweet vulnerable Raul as a means to an end, not to mention Heather Williams. I think he was even mean to Victor’s dog. How does a character recover from that? I’l tell you how, through the superb acting prowess that is Michael Muhney. I wanted to detest this man, but something flickered in those eyes of his–as if if you could see the conflict, the vulnerability and the wrestling match between self interest and conscience through those eyes. Adam should have been a one dimensional villain, but Michael took it to a whole new level making fans care about this character. He showed, without telling. This did not come from the writers, but the actor himself. Trevor St. John is a really good actor, but this cannot be replicated and therefore, they should not even try to recast this role.

    So true! He made me love Adam, as much as I tried to hate him for all the things he did. You always seen in his eyes the wanting to be loved by his father (Victor). Michael Muhney IS Adam!

    They are not going to hire back Michael, something obviously has happened to warrant a firing, and nobody can talk about it.

    I am just devastated over the firing of my favorite Daytime TV start Michael Muhney. It is unbelievable what has happened to this gorgeous, talented man. No one can replace him. No one can replace Billy Miller. No one can replace Michelle Stafford. What is wrong with all the Y&R fans? I have watched this show since day one when it first came on. March 23, 1973. I will no longer watch it after January 30, 2014. That is the last air date of Michael Muhney and Billy Miller. Well, everyone knew when the Soap Killer, Jill Farren Phelps got her hands on our beloved Soap it would be destroyed. They were right. She sure did just that. We Michael Muhney true fans will not go easy. We are asking them to rehire Michael to the role of Adam Newman. If he is not back by January 30th thousands of people will boycott CBS Network and thousands will write to the sponsors such as Covergirl and several of the other huge sponsors. We are so upset that this man was fired one week before Christmas. Michel is a married man with three small children and the rumors circulating about his firing is just unheard of. Why does anyone want to crucify this talented actor just trying to do his job? Could several castmates be jealous of his talent? What. He did not deserve to be done the way he has been done unless he possibly killed someone. No other behavior deserves this punishment. This show is a mess. Turn it on and you will not recognize it as Y&R. Most fans feel like CBS/Sony want this show cancelled but must you do it at the expense of the most talented actors ever to grace the screens of Daytime? Here you are already talking about a replacement. You know she has one of her friends already lined up. I am so disgusted with this I do not know what to do. With Billy Miller and Michael Muhney leaving at the same time has just ruined my Christmas. It was bad enough to loose Phyllis but to loose both Billy and Adam at the same time is just unreal. I will never watch another show on the CBS Network again. I am done with it.
    I wish both Bill Miller and Michael Muhney the best in their future endeavors and they are both talented and will do well. We will see them both on another show or in the movies. But I will never forgive Jill Fareen Phelps, CBS/Sony Network for what they have done to our beloved Young and the Restless. It will never be #1 again with what they have left on the show. I have heard rumors they are not through cutting the cast. All you that bad mouthed Michael Muhney beware, you may be next. I would like give a shout out to Sharon Case for the beautiful video she did of her and Michael. She is a talented, classy lady and a good friend of Michael. She deserves better than all the trash she receives at Y&R. I am just an x-fan who has signed petitions to bring Michael back and I signed Petitions to fire Jill Farren Phelps. I know it will not do any good but I felt good signing them. Thank you Michel Fairman for the wonderful interviews you did on Michael Muhney. I enjoyed everyone of them with the exception of this one. There should be no need for a replacement of Michael Muhney. He is just too talented to be let go. I could name several that should have left along time ago instead of the ones going out the door. Someone at the top of Y&R is very incompetent and just maybe they need to go instead of the actors and actresses. I am leaving the soap world as of January 30th. I have enjoyed my many years of watching and I loved these people. They did come into my home 5 days a week, but with the exception of Sharon Case and Peter Bergman, no one else is welcome into my home 5 days a week. Thank you Michael Fairman for letting me vent and get this off my chest. And if you do see Michael Muhney tell him his fans love him and we look forward to seeing him turn up on the big screen or primetime real soon.

    I can’t fathom how they are going to get along… without… Adam, Billy, Phyllis, Ashley,

    these are incredible actors

    letting go of the last bridge that connected incredible Y&R, to nothing… is simply not good

    jeezus… bite me.. it’s just incredible actors let go… I don’t know Y&R anymore

    Please. Get a grip. The world isn’t going to end over this. I think Michael Muhney must be posting a lot of these himself. There are specific rumors out there as to why he was fired. It’s not something that people would just make up and lie about. Michael Muhney isn’t denying those specific rumors which says something. All he’s saying is don’t believe anything you hear. He’s never going to admit to why he was really fired. Billy Miller and Michelle Stafford left by their own decision. That video Sharon Case made was cheesy and so inappropriate especially if MM is guilty of what he’s been accused of.

    Trevor St John would be the ideal Adam recast. Like everyone says, he has a similar look and mannerism. He’s a heavy hitter with the star power and fan base to hit the ground running. With the loss of Michael Muhney and Billy Miller, Y&R is lacking in Leading Men. Right now it’s just Josh Morrow and Steve Burton. They need another STAR to fill the void and Trevor St John certainly fits the bill.

    People are upset about losing Muhney so JFP needs to give us fans somebody stellar like Trevor St John to make up for it. We need a brand name actor who can deliver the goods right away!

    They need to make such a splash for sure. Is Josh Morrow a leading man anymore? He used to be much better but he is far to complacent now. Muhney and Miller were the powerhouse leads the show needed. Morrow and Burton? I cringe.

    Had MM left the show in a different manner and the role were being recast, I would agree that TSJ could handle the role without it appearing to jarring a change. But, first…it is too soon. And second,,,,frankly ANY actor to sign on to Y&R at this point had better not be looking at it as a long term gig. Be it Sony/JFP or CBS…someone is out to kill this show.

    That isn’t directly related to the firing of MM but because currently the storylines are terrible, the influx of new characters while shoving veteran ones aside (could Neil have a more boring story…oh, wait…does he even have one now??) and the loss of so many talented actors is sinking the show.

    An example: Esther may not be a major character like Nikki or Jill…but the way they handled her in the Delia story was a travesty. It was truly treating her like the hired help vs the girl’s grandmother. It is typical of the way legacy characters are shunted aside to showcase someone else.

    Honestly, I am shocked they didn’t try to somehow drag in a big scene involving Dylan since he was obviously brought on to become THE star of the show. Sorry, do not see that happening.

    I guess unless I find there have been major changes down the road Y&R will be off my dvr list come January 30th. Leaving only Days. How sad.

    Media critics, outside of the soap focused media, have taken notice of the firing of Michael Muhney. The impact on the internet has been unprecedented for this genre of television. What does that say about an actor that has that kind of fan support? I’d say he’s damn good. I’d also say that the showrunners should re-examine their own actions. Even if he’s guilty of all these unsupported rumors, his departure was on overreaction on their part. All of that said, to bring up this topic is way too early. If Muhney is rehired, then the role should lay dormant for an extended period of time. This is a deep wound for the show and a quick recast is only salt in that wound.

    TSJ is a wonderful actor and can certainly handle the role of Adam, but why? MM was wonderful in this role. He has made the character one of the most complex on tv. You would have to be a total idiot not to realize what an impact this will have on Y&R. The past year has been unbearable with the stupid storylines and some of the most boring characters (Lily, Cane, Nicki, Avery, and last but certainly not least Dylan). I never realized what a one dimensional actor Steve Burton was until now. I stopped watching the day after I heard about MM. I can not bear to see him leave.

    I am one of the biggest Trevor St. John fans there is, but I do not believe he is right for Adam. Firstly, as you stated Michael, Adam and Victor are SO much alike and I doubt Trevor would want to play a different version of the same character.

    I cannot believe we are even contemplating recasts AT ALL, let alone so soon. Michael Muhney was one of those rare talents in the soap world that cannot be matched. He came onto the screen and immediately made Adam his own. He held, and even OWNED, scenes with veterans like Eric Braeden and Peter Bergman. He made a character that seemed so irredeemable, beloved by all kinds of fans. His chemistry with both Sharon Case and Melissa Claire Egan ignited two passionate fanbases. He poured his heart and soul into every scene, no matter how stupid (He deserved better writers!). And through social media and fan events, he made fans feel like family, just how soaps are supposed to be.

    I am so deeply saddened by this. Especially the week before Christmas. I have only been watching Y&R lately FOR Adam scenes, because the rest of the show has been so dull, so lifeless, so depressing, so boring. I can say for absolute certainty that January 30th will be my final day of watching this show and I will not tune back in until Jill Farren Phelps is rightfully fired and Michael Muhney is rightfully rehired. Until then, I will follow him to wherever his career takes him and with his talent, I’m sure that could be anywhere.

    You make some good points. OL has already invaded GH and had its chance to fail on the internet. Time to move on!

    Janet replied

    I agree with both you. This so-called movement is counterproductive and a waste of time. ABC will not bring back the soaps. Period. It doesn’t matter how many talk shows fail, ABC will continue to pilot game shows and talk shows until they find one that can pull the ratings of The Chew. I doubt ABC is even paying attention to this movement.

    It’s not an exaggeration to say that you have more chance to win the lottery or to be struck by a lightning than to see AMC and OLTL on ABC’s airwaves again.

    Mr. Fairman..your question is not evenly thinly veied to hide your respect for Trevor and find him a job. He is great btw..yet he is too old to be the little brother on Y and R..on the other hand..MM looks older than the current Newman children..here is what I advocate.. Ditch All the Newman kids and start over..

    I am being sarcastic because what makes Y and R great is having so many legacy actors. MM really did a great job in a terrible role. When are people at your level who report the soap news going to start advocating LOYALTY to these actors? I don’t want to see new people playing old characters. Btw..these actors who do run from soap to soap need to be told..stick with your current job or be done. MM wants his job.

She has hung in there through some awful stories, (Victor and Sharon?). She deserves FULL redemption and not by Nickie Rich (My Town/5Million/I know business and never finished school) but by someone like Trevor St. John! Please bring him on. Michael is sadly gone and we may as well get used to it…and it seems it is his own undoing.

    I think there is a lot of potential for a recast Adam and I hope that Y&R does recast Adam Newman. I think there is way too much story left to tell for Adam especially story involving his family of Chelsea and Connor. I think the ideal recast would be one who has good chemistry with MCE/Chelsea and comes across well as a father to the baby. I think there is a lot of potential and various things to be explored for the grey pairing of Adam and Chelsea, Also, someone who can come across well as an Harvard educated business man will be ideal. If the person does well in scenes with Victor, Jack, Billy, etc. then that is also ideal.

    I think TSJ is too old for the role. The ideal age bracket IMO is between 32-38 and I would prefer between the ages of 32-36. I think the recast should be younger than MM, if the right one can be found. I can visual a good Adam recast in my head upon returning to the show and having scenes with Chelsea.

    One person I think could work for the recast if interested and/or is a possibility and that is Jay Kenneth Johnson, formerly of DOOL.

    I do think waiting about three months is ideal as it allows for certain things to happen before Adam returns. Also, taking their time getting the right fit is important.

    Y&R needs to keep perspective on the importance of Adam Newman to the show and thus recast. Those who quit viewing over Michael Muhney leaving are basically lost viewers anyway, unless something draws them back to the show. Adam has a new family and needs to create his legacy with them by his side. Adam wants to be a better father than Victor and so recasting provides Adam that possibility.

Flying a banner over the studio is such a waste of money not to mention ridiculous. Obviously CBS and Sony had a very good reason for letting him go. If the rumors are true then he got what he deserved. His acting is better than when he first started but he’s nothing special. In fact, when I saw his first scene as Adam I thought this guy isn’t very good. So many actors have been fired over the years for many different reasons. That’s the nature of the business. Give the new actor taking over the role a chance.

    Looks wise, I think Trevor would make a good replacement – edgy, cute but not gorgeous, well too gorgeous. BUT maybe it’s time to put the character to rest and only as soaps do, bring him back in a year or more. It would be great to bring back Muhney, but if he is a creep, then he doesn’t deserve it. What’s the truth and take it from there.

    I will not buy any one else as the role of Adam than Micheal. I think he’s an incredible actor and they need to reconsider and rehire him. I will be very disappointed if they don’t.

    i don’t think it matters who is recast for the Adam role, Michael M made that role and I don’t believe anyone will be able to fill his shoes. He is the best actor on that show, I tuned in to see what he was up to next, I could not believe he was FIRED!!! MM could make me furious at him one minute and my heart would ache for him the next, he is that great an actor. From reading comments related to his firing, there is definitely more too this than the fans will ever know. If indeed he touched this person inappropiately he should have been dealt with but to be fired is extreme. Y&R has made a huge mistake in my opinion & their loss will be another show’s gain!! Have watched Y&R since i was a teen, now in my 50″s very disappointed. Losing both MM and Billy M , Y&R will have a lot to do to keep viewers tuned in. Oh it seems ironic that the direction of Summer’s character is headed towards a man that abused Nikki sexually!!

    MM is Adam, but I loved TSJ in OLTL, and thought of him and think he is the only one they should consider as Adam. Mannerisms are just alike, and he has the right snarky for it. LOVE it

    Yes, yes, yes !!! If MM cannot return, TSJ would be perfect for the role !!!!! He is an amazing actor. I met him at Disney World for the Super Soap Weekend. He is one of the sweetest, most considerate people that I have ever met !!

    As I write this me and some of my family and friends have discussed this and we love the old Adam Newman. Just like they changed Billy Abbott. Again the new Billy is whimpy and a cry baby. He does not have the tough boy attitude that the old one did! Get Michael Muhney BACK ASAP!!

    I want Michael Muhney back. He did a great job. Don’t want him replaced. He made you hate him but loved the role he played so well! The role of Billy Abbott isn’t the same anymore. I do not like the new Billy who is a poor actor compared to the old Billy! Doesn’t have near the strength that the old Billy did!
