BREAKING NEWS: David Tom OUT; Burgess Jenkins IN as Billy on The Young and the Restless


The Young and the Restless is going in a different direction with the character of Billy Abbott. I've exclusively learned David Tom is being replaced in the role by Burgess Jenkins.


Tom, who played the role of Billy from 1999 to 2002, reprised the role to much fanfare in early 2014. He was seen as the perfect solution, following the exit of mega popular Billy Miller. Miller played Billy Abbott from 2008-2013.

Jenkins has numerous primetime recurring roles on his resume, including stints on Army Wives, Nashville and One Tree Hill.  Look for him to debut in Genoa City in late June.
