DC #568: Michael Muhney Interview

Fasten your seat belts Daytime Confidential listeners. You're about to download one of our wildest podcasts ever! The Young and Restless game changer, Michael Muhney drops by to chat will Luke, Jamey and Jillian about what it was like to take over one of the most controversial and complex roles in recent daytime history, VIctor Adam Newman, Jr.


The veteran of primetime's cult hit Veronica Mars reveals what made him go out for a part on a soap in the first place, when so many actors see daytime as a "stepping stone". Muhney shares how any initial reservations were quickly snuffed out after a few days of working with such enormous talents as Eric Braeden, Eileen Davidson, Peter Bergman and others.

He also spills the tea about what he believes makes Adam tick, citing Shakespearean themes and psychological underpinnings that has the DC crew wishing Muhney were not only starring in a soap, but helping to write his storyline!

Muhney also gets real about the contract issues that almost led to his saying goodbye to Y&R and Adam for good. What led him to stick with the role? You'll have to tune in to hear him tell it in his own words, that is when he isn't matching the gang snark for snark and Jamey, impersonation for impersonation.
