Casting Call: THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS Looking For "Aaron Newton" (Or Is This Really "Adam Newman"?)

CBS' top-rated soap opera THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS has put out a casting call for a character named Aaron Newton, who sounds a little like Adam Newman, last played by Michael Muhney, who last aired on January 30.

The contract role would begin taping in May, and the description reads: "Caucasian Male. MID 30s to LATE 30s. A very handsome, very SEXY, very appealing, very charming LEADING MAN. Aaron is a smart businessman, loves women, and can out maneuver even the shrewdest. NOTE: Actor must be AT LEAST 5'10 and have NO ACCENT PLEASE. This actor will carry major storylines. ONLY actors with strong acting experience will be considered."


  1. That's Adam for sure. CBS doesn't even need to put fake Casting call names out there anymore. Way too obvious. I hope they find something that really fits the role. Should be hard to fill Michael Muhney's shoes.

  2. I always thought Michael Muhney's look and acting style resembled Trevor St. John (ex-Victor/Todd on OLTL.) TSJ would make a great Adam Newman,

  3. UPDATE - It's now mid-June and they've re-issued this casting call stating to begin taping in "July."
