Who Is New Adam on Young and the Restless?

The Young and the Restless is counting down to the debut of new Adam Newman. But who is the new Adam on Y&R? The actor that landed the hottest recast role in daytime is Mark Grossman. The hunky 32-year-old is a former model with Ford and Robert Black Agency who’s been in the business less than a decade. See his acting past and first air date on the CBS soap below.

Who is Spider on Young and the Restless?

The first time Y&R spoilers revealed hints of Adam Newman’s return was the mention of a guy named Spider in Las Vegas. It turns out that Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) learned from her one-night-stand with a rocker that her dad was hanging with the guy in Sin City.

Vikki was surprised because her dad has never been much of a gambler. But she soon became obsessed, with finding out who is Spider on Young and the Restless. The answer is that she still does not know. However, other details emerged including that The Mustache is paying for a shrink in Vegas.

Where Has Adam Newman Been on Y&R?

So, Y&R fans found out that Spider and Adam Newman are one and the same. It turns out that Adam has amnesia from the traumatic events at the cabin. Everyone assumed he was dead. Turns out he was living a strange new life. Now he’s making bucks in Vegas as a card sharp in high stakes poker.

Somewhere along the way, Young and the Restless spoilers show that Victor began helping his namesake to try and recover his memory. The psychiatrist had no luck, though, so Victor will enlist Sharon Newman (Sharon Case) to try and shake loose Adam’s memories.

Mark Grossman as Adam Newman on Young and the Restless

Monday May 13 is the first official air date for Mark Grossman to start as Adam Newman. He will be the fourth actor cast as adult Adam on Y&R. Grossman is 32, a native of Columbia, Maryland and a model as well as an actor. He debuted in short films then followed a path to indie films and then to television.

Before coming to Young and the Restless, Mark Grossman had a soapy role on Famous in Love. He played sexy bartender Shane who turned out to be a twisted stalker. That sounds like a good role for someone that would step into the character of Adam Newman who can be a schemer.

A Much Young Adam Newman on Y&R

Another interesting note about Mark Grossman recast as Adam Newman is his age. The other two actors that last played the role were Michael Muhney and Justin Hartley who are 43 and 42, respectively. Plus, Young and the Restless spoilers revealed Chelsea Newman (Melissa Claire Egan) is soon coming back.

Compared to Grossman’s 32, Egan is 37. The other potential love interest for Adam Newman is Sharon Newman. Her portrayer Sharon Case is 48. So, it will be interesting to see if Y&R pairs Adam with one of his former partners who are years older than him or pair him with someone new in the younger set.

Watch CBS daytime to see Mark Grossman debut as Adam Newman starting Monday, May 13.
