Justin Hartley Cast as Adam on The Young and the Restless

by at . Comments

Justin Hartley is heading back to daytime.

The actor (Smallville, Mistresses, Revenge Season 3), who previously starred on Passions, will take over as Adam on The Young and the Restless, following Michael Muhney’s dismissal in December.

Hartley on Revenge

"I don’t care if the job is on daytime or primetime or the web," Hartley tells TV Guide Magazine. "Give me a good character and someone to listen and I’ll do my acting on a street corner.”

Hartley will debut some time during November Sweeps - and he couldn’t be more exciting.

"I'm so pumped about joining Y&R - I watch it all the time and can't wait to get in there and get my hands dirty!" he says. "I have great respect for daytime drama. I love the branding. I love the style. What can I say? I love good soap!"

As someone who was a huge fan of passions and a huge fan of Justin Hartley in particular on it I know he will do fantastic back on a soap. It really makes me sad though that he didn't find prime time success as I think he is a good actor with lots of appeal. Oh well our loss is the soap world's gain

That was Victor's doing. It was purely personal. Believe me, old moneybags is going to eat his words. The magazine is gonna do great, and beauty of nature will be left in the dust.
