Richard Burgi has played the role of Ashland on The Young And The Restless for the past year. However, Burgi did not renew his contract and announced a few days ago that he was done with the show. Burgi did not announce his last air date or Ashland’s fate but he has become very important to the show. However, answers are starting to immerge with the reveal of the Newman recast.

The Young And The Restless – Newman’s New Role

The Young And The Restless’ Newman played the evil Kirk Cranston for a short stint on NBC’s Santa Barbara. Of Course, Cranston was a very disturbed man who tortured Eden Capwell (Marcy Walker) as well as her boyfriend Cruz Castillo (A Martinez). Cranston even tried to kill the couple with the help of Gina DeMott (Robin Matson) at one point.

However, Newman is better known for playing good guy Josh opposite Reva Lewis (Kim Zimmer). Of course, Newman is probably thrilled to pay a different type of character on The Young And The Restless.

    Liked Richard Burgi as Ashland very much, even tho he was a bit older than usual Victoria partners – but Robert Newman as replacement! wow – he is too old looking for the part & lacks Burgi's charisma & as Richard Burgi doesn't want to continue in role or if they stupidly let him go, they should just let the character DIE – I couldn't stomach watching old Robert Newman & it just would ruin the story line for me. I really don't get the writers or casting bosses!???
