A few weeks ago, Y&R fans were shocked by Michael Muhney's firing and since his character Adam is in the middle of a big storyline one can expect the show to recast the role. While no one has officially been named, fans are making suggestions on who they think should take over the role.

One actor I’d love to see as a contender for Adam is Tom Pelphrey.

I’ve been a fan of his ever since he played Jonathan on Guiding Light and Pelphrey bought a range of emotions to his character. Jonathan, much like Adam was considered a bad boy, yet they both have a sensitive side, which made viewers fall in love with them. To me this is a perfect reason why Pelphrey would be good for the role. Plus, the chemistry he’ll have with Melissa Claire Egan and the other actors will be phenomenal. I can already imagine him going toe to toe with Y&R heavyweights Eric Braeden and Peter Bergman.

That’s my pick as the new Adam, what about you? Who do you want to see play Adam?
