Michael Muhney (Adam, The Young and the Restless) (c) CBS Watch MagazineIn a clever play on worlds, Alan Carter for CBS Watch Magazine, titles his piece on Michael Muhney (Adam, The Young and the Restless) "For the Love of Munhey." Carter calls Muhney's character, Adam, "daytime's sexiest sociopath," and shares that he "takes pleasure in making Y&R fans swoon."

But we've seen Muhney on Twitter, sharing news of his personal family life and proving that he's basically a regular guy, who also just happens to be a fine actor and he's having a ball in Genoa City.

"Playing Adam is like Baskin-Robbins and 31 flavors," Muhney says. "How could you pick one flavor? I enjoy the whole store. If you're an actor and you're offered the part of Othello, you take it."

But he wasn't so sure at first. Muhney replaced Chris Engen in the role. Engen left because he just couldn't justify some of the antics of the character, so he upped and quit. The role was offered to Muhney, who had a track record on CBS primetime shows like JAG, Without a Trace, Numb3rs, CSI: Miami.

"I was narrow-minded when it came to soaps," he says. "I thought it was all about saying 'Brenda, I love you' while flexing your abs and sweating." According to Carter, "after the Y&R powers-that-be outlined where Adam had been and where he was going, 'I was pretty much salivating,' Muhney says. 'Adam was intelligent, emotional, inherently flawed, duplicitous, ambiguous, power-hungry, narcissistic. ... I was rubbing my palms together.'"
