CBS Daytime's The Young and the Restless is once again recasting the role of Billy Abbott. I hear Burgess Jenkins has been given his walking papers.
Setside sources reveal former General Hospital star Jason Thompson (ex-Patrick) is the frontrunner to replace Jenkins in the role. However, a deal between Thompson and the CBS soap hasn't been reached yet.
'They're moving forward with or without Jason," says one insider.
Rumblings persist Y&R is gearing up to do another plastic surgery arc to explain how Billy Abbott goes from looking like Jenkins, to potentially having the mug of Thompson.
