In more casting news from The Young and the Restless prior to the long Memorial Day weekend, according to a report this morning from Daytime Confidential, the powers-that-be have made a casting switch and have decided to replace David Tom in the role of Billy Abbott with actor, Burgess Jenkins!
The role of Billy has been critical to the show, and after the departure of fan favorite, Billy Miller, Tom returned to the role he originated, but seemingly could not catch-on with the viewers this time around.
The series has replaced him with Burgess Jenkins, who is known for his roles on Army Wives, Nashville and One Tree Hill. Jenkins also appeared in the films, Remember the Titans and Hero.
Thus far this morning there has been no official word from Y&R on the casting change, but we will keep you posted as developments warrants.
So, what do you think of Burgess Jenkins replacing David Tom as Billy Abbott? Let us know!
