Hollywood Heights' Robert Adamson Cast as Noah on The Young and the Restless!






Looks like I'm two for two on Wishful Castings of late! First my suggestion that Everybody Hates Chris teen heartthrob Tequan Richmond take over the role of TJ on General Hospital became a reality; now The Young and the Restless has cast Hollywood Heights' hunk Robert Adamson as the new Noah Newman!  Here's the casting scoop from the Soap Opera Digest Facebook Page:

That was fast. YOUNG AND RESTLESS has already cast the next actor to take over the role of Noah Newman, last played by Kevin Schmidt. He's Robert Adamson, who just wrapped up a run on Nickelodeon's HOLLYWOOD HEIGHTS as Phil. Adamson, who beings taping on September 4 and will first air on October 1, will work again with HH's former Executive Producer Jill Farren Phelps and Head Writer Josh Griffith, who now hold the same posts respectively on Y&R.

Majorly awesome news! Adamson, who also appeared in the ABC Family drama Lincoln Heights, definitely favors Noah's TV dad Joshua Morrow (Nick). I predict Adamson will bring a much-needed edge and sex appeal to the role of the Newman scion. I can't get enough of him as bady boy thief Phil on HH.

I had an inkling things looked good for Adamson when CBS Daytime Vice-President Angelica McDaniel responded to the Daytime Confidential tweet of my Wishful Casting. See the exchange below:

Goodness Jamey. Maybe you should be receiving some sort of "Finders' Fee" for the assistance you've given to the GH and Y&R casting departments. Wink Congratulations on hitting the marks... Innocent

Good for you Jamey!

I am looking forward to this new Noah. I'm also looking forward to seeing who they are going to pair him with and pray to God that we are not gearing up for a Kyle/Eden/Noah triangle!

So…one day the peeps at CBS are sending the DC crew strongly worded emails about posting casting calls, then the next, they're doing the ole 'wink, wink, nudge, nudge' to your casting suggestions, LOL. They're so confused over there.

They need to cast a new LILY ASAP before CKs fans hire the Goodyear Blimp.

Jamey: Damn, you're good! (in the words of Blanche Devereaux to Dorothy Sbnorak)

Are you collecting a fee? I'm going to start calling you the unofficial Casting Director to the Soaps.

Now that we know, that they listen to you...can you start dropping some hints on some storyline fixes...I mean ideas. Maybe if you call it Wishful Storylines (maybe the keyword is wishful--then you'll have their ear).

@MsAgent I do Wishful Storytelling as well. It isn't as frequent a feature. I am planning a few for next week! Tongue

Coffee, they've already started a petition campaign and included a twibbon to see to it that Christel Khalil stays with Y&R! All I'm gonna say is, "Ugh!"

OK Jamey, but I really think you should start collecting a commission check... these executives and EP are definitely taking your casting advice!!!

This was indeed a fast casting! JFP isn't messing around. She's working her butt off to turn this show around!

With Robert Adamson cast as Noah Newman on Young & Restless, take a look back to when Robert & Days Of Our Lives vet, Mark Hapka sing about STD's

Good for Robert Adamson. I remember he was on Lincoln Heights on ABC Family. I loved that show. Can't say I'll start watching Y&R again but good for him.

Okay, I'm looking forward to it then. I won't even try to bribe, influence or corrupt your thinking (LOL).

He does look like he could be Sharon and Josh's kid (he has her eyes and his strong features), so good eye Y&R and Jamey!

I am hoping for Shannon Kane as nuLily (perfect since Kyla Pratt is on that awful BET show) and for Christel to be in discussion if GH decides to bring Maya back to the canvas.

Awesome! Adamson fits perfectly. Smile

I'm excited for his version of Noah. I first saw him on "LH" as Cassie's boyfriend. He's a fine young actor!

Her TWEEN fanbase is very loyal. They can follow her to the Disney Channel. Though I suspect they have no use for her if she isn't paired with Cane.

I also think that Daniel Goddard (Cane) will be out at Y&R too before too long. Especially if they intend on recasting Lily.

@Jamey Giddens: Shannon Kane will be Lily? What you think? She'll just pull from there. Sounds good to me?

No, there isn't. But I don't think we have anything to worry about. CK is pretty much already out the door now.

@ChristianDavis148: Yes, don't pass go! Don't collect 200 dollars. CK fans can send all their hate my way. Cause all that emotional argument that has nothing to do with understanding the nature of acting character development ain't gonna work!

I thought she was still obligated to work for another month though? Her contract isn't up until Sept.
