Jillian Bowe's nickname for Billy Miller just took on a much more significant meaning. The soap superstar Ms. Bowe christened "Killer Miller" during his Daytime Emmy-winning stint as Billy Abbott on The Young and the Restless, will now be playing an actual assassin on ABC Daytime's GeneralHospital!
GH showrunner Frank Valentinitweeted confirmation of the worst kept secret in soaps — Miller is assuming the role of presumed dead mob hitman Jason Morgan. Miller, who exited Y&R in early 2014, joins fellow megawatt ex-Genoa Citizens Emme Rylan, MauraWest and Michelle Stafford on the ABC sudser.
In a not-quite-ironic twist, Miller will be recreating the role made famous by current The Young and the Restless star Steve Burton. In late 2013, Y&R managed to rehire GH legend Tristan Rogers as mobster Colin Atkinson, while he was reprising the role of Robert Scorpio on a recurring basis.
