Conflicting ‘Y&R’ rumors: Will former ‘OLTL’ actor take over as Adam Newman?

There have been many casting changes and actor exits over the past year on “The Young and the Restless” but the most controversial of all is the exit of Michael Muhney and the recasting of the role Adam Newman.

One report says that “Y&R” is ready to recast the role of Adam Newman, but another report, this one from Celebrity Dirty Laundry on March 19, reveals that sources close to the show say that auditions are still ongoing and that no replacement has yet been chosen to assume the role of Adam Newman. The report goes on to say that former “One Life to Live” actor Trevor St. John will not be offered the role of Adam Newman, as previously reported.

Michael Muhney fans, who go by the hashtag Team Muhney on Twitter, will not accept any actor recast in the role of Adam Newman. Initially they wanted Muhney rehired but after much controversy over his abrupt termination, Team Muhney fans no longer wish to have the actor return to “The Young and the Restless”. Thousands of Michael Muhney fans have stopped watching “The Young and the Restless” entirely, making it unclear if a recast would be possible or accepted.
