'The Young and the Restless' Star Justin Hartley: "It’s the best job I have ever had. I’m very happy.”
“Justin is a gifted actor,” says Angelica McDaniel, head of daytime for CBS Entertainment. “We knew he would bring a fresh perspective to Adam Newman, and his energy and talent have quickly made him not only a fan favorite, but also an important addition to our cast.”
“I think [Adam] is going to find himself with every single thing he ever wanted—and I think he is going to find himself caught in a lie,” Hartley says. “I don’t think he thinks he is a bad boy. Adam is the smartest guy in the room … so he thinks. Something always implodes on him, and it’s usually brought on by himself. He’s a lover and a fighter—skewed 60/40 one way or another at any given time. He leads with his heart, his fist and his brain.”
“At the risk of making my co-stars angry, I think Adam is the best role on television right now,” says Hartley. “On paper, Adam is a perfect character; my plan was to shift it to where I wanted it. A good role is a good role—I don’t care if it’s on a stage, on daytime or prime time, it doesn’t matter. It’s the best job I have ever had. I’m very happy.”
