Adam Recast on Y&R

That was fast. Per, THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS has already recast Chris Engen following the news earlier that he had quit the soap.

Michael Muhney, whom VERONICA MARS fans will remember as Sheriff Lamb, is taking over the role of THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS' charming-yet-shady Adam Wilson, has learned exclusively.

Muhney's first air date on CBS' top serial is Thursday, June 25. He replaces Chris Engen, who has filled the role since February 2008.

On his Twitter page, Muhney is excited about the new role.

it's official. my deal with the network is finalized. i begin filming tomorrow. i'll let you know what it is when they give the green light! the new job is the likes of which i have never done...and i get to indulge in some interesting, perverse, warped scenarios...

Muhney started taping today.


  1. Either Y&R casts at lightspeed, or the show was expecting this.

    I have no idea who this new guy is, but he's cute :)

  2. Damn! He is scorching hot! Good riddance of Chris Engen's homophobic a$$.

  3. I really liked Chris Engen in the role and hate to see him leave, but do respect him being true to his beliefs, or whatever....

  4. Yay! An actor who won't act is NOT AN ACTOR. And the world of acting is really, truly NOT the place for a homophobe.
