Billy Miller Leaving THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS, David Tom Returning As Billy Abbott

Billy Miller is out, David Tom is back in at Y&R.
David Tom is returning to THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS as Billy Abbott, replacing two-time Emmy winner Billy Miller, who opted to leave. He will debut on February 3.

After a new contract between Miller and Y&R wasn't reached, the soap brought actors in to read as possible replacements including Tom, who played the role from 1999-2002.

"I respect Billy Miller's decision to move on and wish him great success in his future endeavors," tweeted Angelica McDaniel, head of CBS Daytime. "Please join me in welcoming Daytime Emmy winner David Tom back to #YR and @CBSDaytime as Billy Abbott's exciting storyline continues." Tom is the brother of Heather Tom (Katie, B&B).

Miller has played Billy since 2008. He will continue shooting at Y&R until December 19. His last airdate is currently scheduled for January 30.

Tom also won an Emmy for playing Billy as "Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series" in 2000. He is the brother of THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL star Heather Tom, who played Victoria on Y&R for many years.

Check out a 1999 Y&R scene featuring David Tom as Billy below:

  1. I preferred David Tom as Billy but this kills my dream of Heather Tom returning as Victoria someday.

    2. Long time Y&R fan from day one. I never understood why
      David left his sibs are all very talented also. Billy Miller has been a excellent replacement. The last year the writing was so terrible that I quit watching for the first time in 40 years. The actors that have left have had probably a good reason to.. The new writing by the new writers remind me of writers from the canceled soaps from other networks. Y&R you need to get some heart to your show back! You have made nearly are the women either drug addicts, drunks, or crazy. Where is a moral character like John Abbot or anyone in a stable relationship on you show? You also need a strong moral character as a female.

    3. Y and R is just KILLING the show. Shame on them for killing off Delia...she was a great little actress. Billy Miller REALLY ads energy to the show. I think Billy Thom is to young looking to pull it off. Bring back Ashley. Never did care for for Heather Thom.
      And now Michael Muhney is leaving???!!!!!! WTF Y & R

    4. To Scottysmom just f.y.i Heather Tom no longer plays on the young and restless so it wouldn't be brother and sister playing a role of a husband and wife she now placed on a difference show I think it's bold and the beautiful you need to get your facts straight before you make comments. Billy Miller has done an excellent job I wish him well him will be missed.

    6. I too hate to see Billy Miller leave....I wish he would reconsider! I love love how he plays Billy Abbott....he is such a talented actor and puts his own spin on the part....that's what I love about him....he's an absolute natural!

    7. I'll be done watching that soap 4 great actors Jeanne Cooper(who's deceased) will always be forever missed, but Michelle Stafford, Michael M.,& Billy Miller, i can't fathom watching the show without them & so therefore i won't. The writer's of y & r have done a hack job to this show....it's gonna be the beginning of the end of y & r. I'm sad but i am wishing those actors n actress well. Have a Blessed New Year everyone. January 30th,2014 will be the last day i will ever watch this show. I stopped watching B&B 2 yrs ago & stopped watching another soap before that yrs ago n y & r was my last good soap then the writer's go n shake a tree that didn't need shaking. Their loss n in the end it'll be the end of the show altogether. I'm out.

    8. Enough already. Recast Phyllis or stop this stupid thing with Nick and Sharon. I ready to stop watching. Thank goodness for Tyler and Abby.

    10. I didnt know this until today when the new guy showed up at the door , I just Love Billy hes a great actor and it want be the same with out him & beside hes from Texas woo woo , best wishes

    11. David Tom is horrible...Y&R is not the same. He does not bring enough passion to the role. He was great as young Billy but he still looks like a little boy.

      Delete
    12. I agree with everyone. David Tom cannot fill Billys shoes, he is too young. BringBilly and Phyllis back! The Nick and Sharon drama is old and boring.What's up with Adam? He better come back too!

      Delete
    13. What have the writers done!! In the middle of such emotional scenes they change Billy?? This change lost the acting!!

      Delete
    14. I think Billy left because they fired Adam. I think the reason they fired Adam is ridiculous. Summer should be glad somebody was flirting with her. She's the most unattractive actress on Y&R. Plus, Michael is married. Why did they fire him for flirting, (I.e. Being a typical man)? Billy was down to earth, and I think it really infuriated him when they decided to fire Michael for such a frivolous reason.

  2. Very sad , as good as David was playing Billy , when he left and Billy Miller took over it raised the show to an entire new level . Billy Miller shows so much emotion and heart in Billy Abbott . This is truly a sad day to see him leave .

    1. amen to that, Nanette. Billy Miller has done an outstanding job, especially with the death of Delia. Both he and the actress who plays Chloe have done award winning acting on this story line. WTH are the powers that be at Y&R thinking when they elected not to resign Miller. Sad sad day

      Delete
    2. I totally agree as well! Y & R is destroying the show by 'letting go' wonderful cast members! The show is going to lose the #1 status :(

    3. I am about to stop watching Y&R. I have been wathing tis how for years, but too many changes. After reading about Michael be fired from his Adam Newman character did it for me. I'm done with the show.

    4. Wish they would take Victor's and forever crying Nicki's salary to hike up Billy Miller's....he's worth every penny! Victor's role as the 'vilan' is getting very tired....

      Delete
    5. I agree with you guys Billy Miller is great but almost stop watching when they killed off little Delia. She was a great and adorable actress. Y&R get it together if you want to keep being #1.

      Delete
    6. They can take Victor and Nikki away. !! Michael, Billy, and Michelle were the only things keeping me watching this show. Now that they are all gone, I am too.

      Delete
    7. Wow I didn't know they are all leaving & have been consistently disappointed in storyline for a long time. Reading all the comments supports my feelings & I'll be done with y&r when they're gone too. Hard to believe this #1show has gone to pot.

      Delete
    8. I love Billy Miller as Billy and it will not be the same with him gone. And if Michael is leaving I will leave also. I am so sick of Victor I could scream and Sharon and Nick. Give us a break! So long Y&R.....

      Delete
    9. I agree in that the exec producers and writers and doing a wonderful job in killing this soap. The good actors we care to watch are no longer a part of it! Adam, Phyllis, Billy story lines are great because the actors were. This Summer, Noah, Fin crap is that...crap! Come to your senses if you don't have the fans, you don't have shit!

      Delete
    10. David Thom was fine playing the younger Billy Abbot but he is so wrong for the role now-It will seem like Victoria is his older aunt or something! Billy Miller is terrific and charismatic -By far the best partner for Amelia Heinle (sp?) I hope this will atleast be a chance for Billy Miller to advance his career because he has alot of potential-Good luck to Him-Between Billy Miller, Michelle Stafford and Michael Muhny leaving we're talking The Young and The Dullsville-zzzzzzzzz

      Nanette, I totally agree. Billy Miller is such a natural at playing the part and he adds his own twist to the character that makes Billy Abbott seem so real. Rating will drop because there just doing to much to the show, but not making the right moves in the proper places. GET NEW WRITERS. And if they wanna replace someone, let it be Sharon. It seems they really don't have any good parts for her to play because they keep dragging this current lie out and she basically's doing the same thing in her part....lying, cheating, stealing and just a shit starter

  3. So Y&R went into the Delia story knowing Billy's contract was coming up. Now a new/old actor will play it out.

  5. Like David Tom but as said above this means there is very little chance of Heather Tom returning to Y&R. Heather was the Tom I really wanted to see back on the show

    ReplyDelete
  6. Loved Miller, but LOVE Tom as the original Billy. I'm hoping this means a new direction for both Billy and Victoria, and the return of the show to more focus with the Abbotts and Newmans. Also hope more screen time for Jess.

    I also want to point out that I don't think this was Phelps' decision. I believe someone TOLD her that Tom should replace Miller. I think with the recent backlash from the Delia story line, that Phelps isn't making all the decisions on her own anymore. Same could be said for the character of Colin returning, which was actually a character MAB created. I hope to see more positive changes when changes happen.

  7. No one can replace Billy Miller, hate to see him go. I hope he continues to get more acting roles. Need to move on with the Young and The Restless, too much about Delia and leave poor Adam alone. It's time you make him a good guy.

  8. Billy Miller brings out Amelia's quirky side and the two are so entertaining to watch. I don't know if the new-(old) Billy will be able to accomplish this. It will be awkward.

  9. So sad to hear this. Miller is great as Billy. I agree with the above...move on from Delia's death. It should never had happened but since you let it happen... move on. If you were going to kill anyone it should have been Victor.

  11. I am mad at the new writer(s)....they should have never killed off Delia, what a huge mistake for a child...should have replaced her...replacement of Billy Miller, what a bad decision there....such bad writing lately and work out a better deal with Billy Miller, he is such a great actor and yes great charisma & chemical balance with Amelia!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. If you mean the new writer(s) as in Shelly Altman and Jean Passanante, don't blame them. The Death of Delia Story was penned by former head writer, Josh Griffith, who was still the head writer for episodes broadcast through November 1st. (But more than likely, this story actually originated with executive producer, Jill Farren Phelps.)

  12. Writers (blank) or get off the pot. How could you not make an agreement with Billy Miller? Are you nuts? He is fabulous. And trust me, this is an award winning story line, you just let your emmy winner walk out the door. "Billy" head over to GH they'll take you. Apparently they know talent when they see it.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Writers don't make the agreements with the actors. In Y&R's case, it's the production company, Sony. When it's a lead character like this, they probably seek input from the showrunners and the network, but Sony ultimately controls the purse strings. One might imagine they've grown weary of going through this annual rigmarole with Mr. Miller for the last three years running.

      That's because he didn't have the opportunity to see Billy Miller in action. I bet he's probably wondering why the change. It's not gonna be the same. But I also pray that Billy Miller doesn't end up on Bold and Beautiful...I can't stand that show and never got into watching it. But where ever he goes, I'm a follower

    2. David Tom served his purpose then but he does not fit the role of Billy. He has a child's voice. Get Billy Miller back. Bring Phyllis and Adam back. They made the show interesting as did Billy M. I'm sick of the Nick and Sharon wah..wah...ugh, it's pathetic. Someone needs to give those actors what they want in their contract, y&r ratings are going down fast.

  16. I dnt know anything about David Tom but I wish him luck buuuuuutttt lol…IM GONNA MISS ME SOME BILLY MILLER he fitted sooo perfectly as an Abbott

  17. I will miss Billy Miller as Billy Abbot, I'm not sure about David Tom coming back as Billy...After Billy Miller, there are no comparisons...another thing about Y&R the writers have been terrible...I have been watching this soap since I was 13 and I am 53 now...the show is terrible and I am on my last leg of watching it...I have never been more disappointed in a show as much as the Y&R.

    1. I agree so much the killing of Delia to save a baby who has no meaning to anyone and the writers redeeming sharon with no accountability and now Adam getting away with murder. I'm about to switch channels. I have been watching this show since it's debut and I am just ready to throw up. The writers should be killed off. Not the actors. I don't Blame Billy for leaving but he was the best. I didn't even remember David Tom playing Billy that's how unnoteworthy he was. I agreee kill off Nikki and Victor. have them both die in a house bombing or something like that Now Dillan is a Newman WTF!!! Shame on you Y & R. Time to watch AMC

    2. First of all that was a very rude remark about the baby...and Adam hit the little girl without knowing he did...wasn't his fault...hiding it is his fault.he's a great actor and Billy choose to leave.

    3. I agree with anonymous, that was very rude, I love adam and hope that they will keep him, he is a very good actor

    1. I think this totally sucks. Billy Miller is such a talented actor that he lights up the screen when he is on. I wish him well because he is loss for Y&R during what has to be one of the hardest scripts the death of a child. All yall are saying is move on from this story but thats what daytime isw deal with it in there own way. Miller has chemistry with Vicky. I never saw Tom play billy. Good luck Billy Miller your a great actor who will definately get his own show. I like the story with Jill, Jack and now Kyle going after Victor. Im so dam sick of Victor winning ALL the time. Its time for the Abbotts to destory the mustache once and for all.

    2. Billy is one of my favorite rolls on this show and I love how Billy Miller, plays the part. No Phyllis and a new Billy and poor writing. I think it's time I use my time more wisely and stop watching this show. Been watching it since I was a kid but it's just getting pathetic. Stopped watching it for a while and than came back to try again. So far disappointed but even more so hearing that Billy Miller is leaving.

  20. I think Billy Miller did an excellent job with his charachter. You can feel his emotions strongly. I can't imagine anyone else doing a better job. I am sad about his leaving the show. This is the only soap I watch and I am dissapointed with that decision to not try to work something out with Billy.They are loosing a good actor.I see awards in his future. I wish him luck in his future acting career, he will be great at anything he does.

  22. I give up. I've been watching this show for 40 years, but I'm done. I've only been watching an episode every week or two since the horrible Delia story.

    1. I agree. Kyle? What's up with that. They did finally cut his hair but it didn't help. Billy is the best! Can't imagine anyone else playing the part. He needs to be on a prime time show. That's how good he is.

Phylis left and now they are letting Billy Miller go? What are they thinking? He is awesome, he is fun! I love him and Victoria together! I don't know how much I am going to be watching it anymore! They are taking away all the fun actors and leave all the boring ones. Remember the days of Michael and Phylis? Now, Michael and Lauren, Boring! Remember Jack and Jill? Now they are trying to make Jack the new John Abbot, Boring! They better rethink their story lines or they are going to be the next soap going off the air! So Sad!

  26. I have watched all of my life. Very disappointing to learn this news. Billy and Victoria (their current characters) are irreplaceable. Not to discount Tom, but this is not going to help ratings. I hope Y and R doesn't end up off the air like the rest....

    ReplyDelete
  27. There is NO comparison between Miller and Tom! Miller has settled into the role of Billy and NO ONE can replace him!! I am sick and tired of seeing our Beloved Young and the Restless being torn apart by the writers and those that would rather let an incredible actor go because they don't want to pay him his worth!! Mark my word, this show is on its way out, and the really sad point is, it could have been prevented!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I have watched Y&R since day one. I have seen them come and go. Billy Miller is the best I have seen on the show in years. I am 65 and I even have a little crush on him.I lost a child myself and I think they are dwelling to much on Delias death.I believe people watch to forget their own problems but this storyline is one that needs to be short lived.Don't go Billy you are the best.

    ReplyDelete
  29. It's true we watch to forget our own problems. I just hope Billy Miller has a lovely and bright future as an actor ahead of him. I'm really grateful to have had a chance to watch him perform on screen and fall in love with Billy and Victoria's story and life together. The Delia storyline is a strange note for him to leave on but at least we've gotten to see one more note of his powerhouse acting. I feel lucky to be in LA. Maybe I'll catch him on stage. I heard he is into theater a while back. But, I have to admit that I am going to miss Billy/Vic. I am afraid I can't make the time to watch the show now that they are over. I'm sure Tom will be great, but the chemistry will be gone with someone new.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Is Young and the Restless the next soap to go off the air? I hated the Delia storyline but kept watching. Billy Miller should be paid whatever he wants. No one can take his place. I don't think I can watch David Tom playing Billy now.

  31. Lets not forget,David Tom has not portrayed Billy in over a decade...Billy has changed quite a bit...A man of 21 is not a man in his mid 30's... David Tom never portrayed Billy as a father

  32. I'm so sick of the character changes. I LOVE Billy Miller. I don't want the change. The tragedy of Delia and then a change in character now. CORNY!! Y&R needs to make better decisions.

  35. I do not want to see Billy Miller go, he is an excellent actor. But I also must say, I am SICK of this story line. I have been watching Y&R for 40 years, and I no longer look forward to watching my soap, because all I do is cry with Delia story line. Enough.... either make it all a dream and bring her back or move on.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Go figure! I was excited to see Billy Miller come to Y & R after watching him on AMC. I think Y&R is making a HUGE mistake! I won't be surprise if Billy is not nominated for a Daytime Emmy for the story line of Dehlia's death. Draining an actor emotionally with the story line and then not paying them for their devotion and bring up ratings!!!! Really Billy and Amelia have great chemistry!!!!

  37. This is really sad. Billy Miller is one of the best actors you currently have on the show. I used to watch the show every day. However, with Dee Dee's death and now reading that Billy will be leaving is beyond sad. I guess I will start watching like I have done Days of our Lives. I used to watch that show every day no I tune in once a month. This has got to be sad when daytime cannot keep amazing actors like Billy Miller. Good luck Billy I wish you the best on your new journey. God speed~

  39. Is Sony tired of the show and willfully trying to retire it? They are definitely sending this show off the air. Don't they see that? Maybe that's their MO. It's very sad they don't realize what they're doing? They must know. They can't be that dumb.

  40. I love Billy Miller the actor, but the character will go nowhere now that Billy Abbott is a grieving father. To have the character frustrated, devastated, impotent and now totally lacking in humor is NOT for Billy Miller. I can't believe that he would want to spend his days acting like doom and gloom. His personality has too many facets to be stuck in self-pity and anger and revenge. It would and will get tiring. Good luck, Billy Miller. We'll find you SMILING on some other show.

  41. Nothing against David Tom but I will really miss Billy Miller. Don't know the real reason for his departure but if there is a way to change that I think it would be most appreciated by the majority of Y & R's fans.

  43. I watched Y&R from early on during the original Sheila stuff (stealing Scotty) until around 2000. (Although I did catch snippets of the storyline with David Kimble prior). I started back again when Sheila came back (had Lauren on the rooftop). So, I missed some years. From what I remember of Tom, he was okay, but long ago I felt that Billy Miller was the perfect actor for Billy. He had layers and made Billy more than one dimensional.

    One thing I feel the show is lacking is the knock down dragouts between Victor and Jack. On one hand, it is nice to seem them mature, but oh how fun it used to be for Victor to pop a gasket, for Jack to call him Mr. Mumbles. Mr. Moustache etc. I regret I missed the years that had the programs I have seen scenes from where Jack throws the chair through the window. One of my favorite scenes is Victor saying to Jack "This is mutiny.. I only tolerated you because of your father and your sister....(Victor falls to floor, Jack walks off and leaves Victor on the floor, but kicks his hand on the way out). Brad was decent too. John was a nice, moral center. The Abbots were a strong family. That sort of stuff and the Sheila stuff were the reasons to watch.

    1. I guess I should add the David Kimble storyline seemed really cool and I also really liked the Michael / Cricket storyline when Michael was not nice. More recently there have been some interesting things like the Face cream, Ricky Murder (which really ended anticlimatically though).

  47. I love Billy Miller, no one can play that part. He was an asset to the show and to Victoria's character. How about getting rid of Sharon, she has no significant role. And while you are at it please get a new Abby, this one sucks. I really hated that Delia move, why kill her off. She was a great actress; played her part very well. Why let Adam get away with so many crimes?

  48. I think it is terrible that Billy MIller is leaving. He is so great in that part. Please do not leave and have David Tom replace him. He just does not have the look. Billy Miller brought so much to that character and to the show. This is a big mistake!!!

    1. I agree. I think the writers are all gay. Why you ask? Because there can be no happy loving married couples. Michael and Loran come some what but they really tried to mess that up the same way with Cane Lilly. Adam had just started to become a real good character then they screwed that up with this Dilla thing. New writer's needed.

  52. Billie Miller adds so much depth to his character - even my husband was ticked when I told him he was leaving. Poor Choice. Not looking forward to Feb.

  53. What's next - replacing Adam (again)?? Replace some of the boring characters and leave (resign) the meaty ones. You better have some good stuff lined up for the new Billy to win us over.

  55. Y & R execs/writers take heed! There is an old saying that anyone can be replaced, but it just isn't true. As an executive myself, I know who the talent is and what they mean to my company. You should fight to keep "the goods" - no matter what the cost. I've been watching your show for over 30 years and you are irritating your most devoted fans. Do you care? Do you ever listen? Or will you end up another show we have to watch from our computer? And the others were right; the dynamic between Billy and Victoria is officially over. Or is that what you intended all along? Let Billy walk and replace him so we wouldn't care that you destroy their marriage. You really don't seem to get it! You have made some insane decisions with storylines over the last year or so that just don't make sense and you are infuriating your loyal customers. Bring the talent back - including some of the old talent you let walk; get rid of Courtney, Mason and these other ridiculous wasted screen time personas and get back to the main families of Genoa City and the strong acting that you had and let go. Stop adding people we don't care about and bring back those we do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  56. I agree with so many things that has been said. I too have watched for 36 years but find I fast forward through most of the story lines. Seems that your writer's never watched the Y&R as the story line's have been done over and over so many times. Seems like you need new writers instead of running off good actors. Victor is such a joke everything and everyone he goes after he has done worse and more often. I love Sharon but hate she has been the bad one ( I have been through what her and Nick suffered) Lost my daughter and the writers did good on that. But the thing with Dilla the writer's missed it. You just need all new writers or I too am gone. Love Michael and Loran but this son is no actor and the story line needs an ending. Never get rid of Michael or Kevin as they really do some of the best acting on the show. Ninnies is married to a Billionaire help her to look like it by at least doing her hair and sagging eye lids.

  57. I think Victoria and Stitch have awesome chemistry, I'd like to see that story line go somewhere cause we all know in TV land, Couples don't survive losing a child. The Dillon/ Nikki story is just to far fetched for me, I have been watching for forty years, the back story just doesn't Gel, Dillon should be Paul's. That would have made more sense. Dillon is not a Newman, he is not related to Adam or Victor. Can't wait for him to meet his child raping Father, will he find out he has more brothers & sisters? Will Ian Ward rape again or will Nikki get back together with him HAHAHA! Devon I am disappointed in: did he forget where he came from, A Billionaire and he doesn't open a house for teens or anything like that. Adam's character has gone through to much stuff, a fresh face on Adam might make us forget the Slime this character really is. Could we see Michelle Stafford returning as Phylis? That would be awesome, she could walk in on Nick & Sharon about to make love and spill the beans! I will be sad when this show is taken off the air, but I will always have Sons of Anarchy!!! Maybe Y&R should hire Kurt Sutter to write for them!

  58. I started watching YnR because my wife. She has been watching from the 70's, She watched because of Days would run the same story lines from years past and it is written poorly. Unfortunately YnR has brought those same horrible writers over and anymore it shows. The leaving of Billy Miller and Michael are terrible decisions from the executives of YnR. I believe the chemistry between Victoria and Billy will not be the same and will be another reason to stop watching the show..... Very sad.

  59. David Tom may have been the original Billy but Billy Miller was THE Billy Miller. I see a divorce for Victoria and Billy. I don't think there will be the same chemistry between them.

  60. As long as I have watched the Y&R....42 years to date and hardly ever missed an episode. Catherine my hat off to you. Victor, as governed by how the public see's you, try and live another 10 years on the show. Nick and Sharon, you two are becoming a tasteless combination, become lovers and quit the history between you two.Get it as you can and build a sneeky approach to back rooms and closets, but don't talk past memory. In fact start getting it off as Bonnie and Clyde rebels. Adam, too bad about your in ability to control yourself around the new hot female stars that are entering their stardom in the Y&R.

  61. I HATE that Michelle Stafford is gone, Billy Miller is leaving and Michael Muhney....This is so not right. They all brought their "A" game each and every day. The new Abby is terrible, as is Kyle even Leslie is boring. They have take the best people they have off the show or replaced them:(( I hope Y&R get it together and pay the actors that the audience actually wants to see!

  64. Not that my opinion matters but when they stop airing Billy Miller playing Billy Abbot, I'm going to stop watching Y & R. Are you serious CBS, this guy is one of only a couple natural and good actors on the show. In order Victor Newman, Phyliss, Nikki, Kevin and Michael Baldwin, and can't leave out Mrs. C...the actors that play those parts are awsome and can not be replaced, and neither SHOULD Billy Abbott. Billy Abbott won't be the same. If you don't come to a conclusion....SEE YOU LATER Y & R

  65. I love Billy Miller playing Billy Abbot. Too many wonderful actors leaving the show at once. Y&R should have kept Miller. Some of the newer actors/actresses on the show are boring and they are the ones that should go. I have watched Y&R since it started but lately I have thought about not watching anymore.

  66. the Y and R is not the same anymore, it use to be so good,the suspence was so great I could not wait for it to come on and see what is happening next. all the good actors are leaving. I think the producers should spice it up more or they will get really low ratings on this soap. Yes I do agree with everyone that give Billy Miller the money he deserves, Give Michael another chance. everyone deserves another chance I do not agree with what he did by all means, Everyone deserves another chance. You may say why? because I see murders, rapists they go to jail and in a few years they come out in society and they get their second chance. Michael is neither so please give him that chance. Y and R will not be the same its already boring and if you take out these actors it will be ciao from me I don't think i want to watch it anymore. So producers please think before you leap..

  67. I really don't enjoy Billy Miller's acting. To me, his acting seems over the top... almost over acting

  68. I love Billy Miller's smile which will not be beat by anyone. His smile is communicative and says so much. I will miss him. Miller is so good, I almost forgot about Tom. However, although he is grieving, enough time has passed that he should be remembering Johnnie by now. I hope Tom can redeem himself after Miller.
