Justin Hartley, recognized from Smallville and Mistresses, has been cast as Adam Newman in The Young and the Restless.

Filming will begin in September, and his first episode will air sometime in November. Justin is definitely excited about the new role, as he said on Twitter:

Some may think moving from primetime to daytime television may be a step back, but as he told TV Guide, "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." He went on to say, "Y&R is the No. 1 show and the acting company is exceptional," Hartley says. "There's no period of adjustment with these people and that's daunting. I don't just have to be fantastic, I have to be fantastic right now!"
