HomeTVAll My ChildrenBilly Miller, Billy Abbott First Impressions Luke Kerr September 19, 2008 18 Comments It’s a crying shame that All My Children couldn’t figure out a way to keep Billy Miller around but if he had to end up somewhere there is no better place for a new actor to daytime to come into their own than at The Young and the Restless. Today was Miller’s debut as Billy Abbott and I am more than curious to know what Y&R fans who may have never seen him thought and what any ABC fans that might have tuned in too Y&R thought? My first impression; Billy Miller’s Billy Abbott could be the perfect suave smarmy character needed to shake up Y&R’s younger set and from his first "hey guys" I know more. 18 Responses THEBEST September 20, 2008 When I first saw his face, I immediately bought that he was Billy. I hated Richie, co I’m glad that AMC cut their losses. The character never worked to begin with. He was nothing but a Will Cortlandt wannabe. I so want Amber to flaunt him all up in Daniel’s face. And the look on Jill’s face when she sees that Amber has sunk her claws into another one of her sons will be priceless… ***///Living In The World Of Soaps Since 1985\\\*** Log in to Reply Jamey Giddens September 20, 2008 Thank GAWD they FINALLY got a Billy that will do David Tom proud! Log in to Reply gush900 September 20, 2008 Loving billy miller as billy abbott.Theres a astrong rumor that billy is actually the father of chloes baby Log in to Reply season1217 September 20, 2008 My first impression is that Billy’s going to be a slut. A cute slut, but a slut nonetheless. Log in to Reply siomonstuart2003 September 20, 2008 I hope that he become the next Jack Abbott in training and do what it takes to get what he wants, but not turn him into a bad person to the point of not being irredeemable. siomonstuart2003 Log in to Reply season1217 September 20, 2008 Well, he’s on his way! Wasn’t Jack kind of a slut when he was younger? Log in to Reply Jorpa September 20, 2008 He can be a bad boy/slut all he wants as long as he has John’s heart. I want him to be like Jack. Jack has done a lot of things wrong, but his heart was in the right place. Log in to Reply MsT05 September 20, 2008 I’m thrilled with this casting choice. He seems to have some chops and I can’t wait for Billy and Daniel Goddard to go at it as brothers. It’s going to be awesome..if the Y&R writers don’t eff it up like they do just about everything else. Log in to Reply daisyclover1938 September 20, 2008 I’m keeping an open mind. I wish David Tom could have come back, but I liked Miller on AMC, so I’m hoping he’ll be great on Y&R. BTW, is it me or were both Amber and Daniel dressed like rejects from an ’80s John Hughes movie?

It’s not just you. Also, did anyone see the look on Lily’s face when she saw the drawing of Colleen sleeping in bed and the comment she made afterwards? It was so funny. Log in to Reply Jillian Bowe September 20, 2008 I’m very excited. Not only has Y&R casted someone that has some acting chops but, Miller will hold his own when he goes toe to toe against his onscreen family. He and Jess Walton will tear up a screen, Jeanne Cooper and Miller will just be great especially when she does those one liner zinngers. Lets not forget he and Peter Bergman.. He’ll come in and steal his thunder. Daniel Goddard and he will play off each other tremendously.. Log in to Reply SoapSnob September 20, 2008 Billy Miller simply exudes charisma on the screen. He was absolutely gorgeous and magnetic in all his Hi-Def glory today. And he looks like he could be Peter Bergman’s brother. I was taken with his looks and his talent on AMC and I am looking forward to it being put to superb use on Y&R. The potential for Billy Miller as Billy Abbott is unlimited. Log in to Reply Melodie September 20, 2008 #1 He kinda looks like David Tom! Just his appearance made me happy! #2 This actor appears to be pretty good. He just has that screen presence that you don’t see these days. I’m willing to give him a chance. #3 Why didn’t anybody tell me he was SEXY!!! The pictures don’t do him justice. I can already see that I’m going to enjoy him on Y&R! Log in to Reply timepass September 20, 2008 He look great and sophisticated and we need a great looking youngsters! I saw the following episode and I hate the fact that he had to talk to Collen and that he had to support her so much, boy she is bad and it shows! Why the hell would he be interested in Lily, seriously! I sure hope he won’t hurt Amber too, they will have to rename the show “let everyone crap on Amber”! Log in to Reply Heidi September 20, 2008 From what I’ve seen so far, Y&R has made a great casting decision in hiring Billy Miller. I really enjoyed his scenes; he seemed natural and comfortable – he fit right in. I can’t wait to see him in a scene with Peter Berman. The Abbott family is almost back on track. Y&R just needs to recast the role of Colleen with a talented actress who possesses screen presence, depth and chemistry with her co-stars (Adrianne Leon) and we’ll be back in business. Log in to Reply AlistairCrane September 21, 2008 I just hope Billy is the father of Kate’s baby. Log in to Reply Jamey Giddens September 21, 2008 Jack was the ultimate slut when he was young. Ashley had to pull him out of bed with Diane and make him shower before his wedding to Paul’s sister Patty! Log in to Reply Jenny September 21, 2008 He had me at “Hey Guys”. Y&R did good. I think he will be great as Billy. I can’t wait to see him in scenes with Cane, Jill, Kay, Jack, Chloe, and Ashley. GOD, I really hope they don’t put him with Lily. Ugh!!!! I’m just so sick of that character. Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
