    According to Michael Fairman on Soaps, it’s official: Jason Thompson has been cast as the new Billy Abbott on Y&R.

    Given the variety of portrayals of Billy over the years, it will be interesting to see Thompson’s take on the character.

    Not sure how I feel about this; but JT is a wonderful actor and deserves a chance to prove himself!

    Here is the link EW:

    Lots of great potential with this casting move!  Congrats to JT and Y&R.

    “Shocking” said no one paying attention to this forum.

    Also does this mean GH will recast the role of Patrick with an outgoing Y&R star like they did the role of Jason?

    Although they’re at separate networks, General Hospital and The Young and the Restless should stop their cast-swapping and officially merge into one two-hour series. (To make this even wilder: it can move over to NBC.)

    ^^  Haha
    If that ever were to happen, count on JFP taking the opportunity to be EP of both shows.  I said from a long time ago that JFP will always have the last laugh.

    Franklin and Jillian had only one job. Keep their big stars on their shows. This casting red rover is not a good look for either show, but what do I know. With the former, he should be ashamed of himself. Instead of picking WeHo’s finest to be cast in pivital and minor roles, he let one of his leading men bored and wanting material worth a damn. He came to the show under Jill’s reign and was featured heavly during that time, and with Billy being a legacy character, he’ll do well there. And he favors Jess.

    DS0816, that cracks me up!  The idea of GH and Y&R combining into one show is endlessly entertaining.
