Justin Hartley is returning to his daytime roots. The Passions alum has signed on with The Young and the Restless as Adam Newman!
Hartley, who has been sexing up ABC primetime sudsers Revenge and Mistresses, will recreate the role previously played by Michael Muhney just in time for November Sweeps. Here's what Hartley told TV Guide Magazine'sMichael Logan:
I'm so pumped about joining Y&R — I watch it all the time and can't wait to get in there and get my hands dirty!
Considering he's been getting so many primetime gigs, why is Hartley returning to daytime soaps? The former Smallville super hero said:
It's all about story and character with me and I don't care if the job is on daytime or primetime or the web. Hey, give me a good character and someone to listen and I'll do my acting on a street corner.
