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:
