Could “Young and the Restless” viewers lose their “new” Adam Newman at the height of his popularity? Some new reports hint that “All My Children” star Aiden Turner may replace of the much-loved Justin Hartley.
According to Celebrity Dirty Laundry, CBS is shopping around for a new leading man to star opposite Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea), and so far, Turner is in the running. The publication claims he made a trip to the studio for a secret screen test with Egan herself.
Could it be true? Is Y&R really losing Hartley already?
While there’s no official word that the popular actor is leaving TV’s number one soap, Hartley just booked a new NBC series “This is Us.” However, it’s not unlike Hartley to play play two roles at once. When he first started on Y&R, he also starred as Scott on “Mistresses.” He later went on to tape “The Challenger” and “Damaged Goods.”
There’s always the possibility that execs decided to break up the Newman couple and plan t bring a new beau who’ll sweep Chelsea off her feet. It’s perfect timing for a breakup since the duo did renew their vows.
