David Tom is out! Y&R recasts Billy Abbott

The Young and the Restless has recast the role of Billy Abbott. In the space of less than a year, we have seen the role go from Billy Miller to David Tom (who originated the role as an adult), now only to be replaced with Burgess Jenkins.

The 40-year-old actor’s credits include roles on Nashville, Army Wives and One Tree Hill.

Jenkins will be jumping into a heavily featured storyline, as Billy is dealing with the aftermath of his daughter Delia dying, and now his separation from his wife, Victoria, who is now pregnant, but the paternity may be his or Stitch’s.

Burgess has already started shooting, having tweeted on Sunday:

What do you think of Burgess Jenkins taking on the role of Billy Abbott? Would you rather keep the role with David Tom? What do you think of the quick recasting of such a crucial role?
