Young And The Restless Spoilers: Billy Abbott (Billy Miller)This poll question is laser specific about a potential casting topic on the Young and the Restless. It doesn’t ask viewers to choose between Jason Thompson (Billy Abbott since 2016), or Billy Miller (who played Billy from 2008-2014).

Instead the answer being requested is if soap fans, be they of Y&R, General Hospital, or of both iconic steamers is direct. Will Miller, who has announced his exit from GH, with his last episode set to air in August, return to Y&R?

Miller scored three Daytime Emmy awards for his portrayal of Billy during his run on the show. He’s been nominated for an Emmy six times in his career, with five (2010, 2011, 2013, 2014, 2015) coming while he was on Y&R and the other (2018) when he was on GH. Miller has been portraying Drew Cain, who was originally thought to be Jason Morgan, since 2014.

Young And The Restless Spoilers – Thompson’s Version Is Also Admired

He earned the statue as Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series in 2010 and 2013. In 2014, Miller won the Emmy in a higher category, Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series.

Clearly, Miller’s work was recognized within the industry. Fans of the show also fondly recall the many arcs he worked and that his version of the character was the one who first meshed with Amelia Heinle (Victoria Newman), which formed recently reunited couple, Villy.

Emmy awards represent the convergence of stellar acting and a bit of good timing. Thompson has not been nominated for an Emmy since joining the Y&R cast, but was nominated five times (2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015) while he was on GH. Thompson portrayed Dr. Patrick Drake on the show from 2005-2016.

Young And The Restless Spoilers – Billy Abbott Pitted Against Adam Newman

As is often true of recast characters, Thompson has been given a different edition of Billy to play. While Mr. Abbott still faces similar personal challenges, it would be fair to say that Thompson’s Billy isn’t as intense as Miller’s was.

Y&R has recently started to revisit one of Billy’s all-time greatest grudges. The recast of Adam Newman (Mark Grossman) is again pitting Billy against the man who accidentally killed Delia Abbott (Sophie Pollono). That epic arc began in 2013, when Miller and Michael Muhney (Adam) were part of the cast. That alone is intriguing.

Y&R’s current regime has been purposely revisiting show history. The aim is to meet hardcore fan demands, which includes the return of various familiar faces.

Young And The Restless Spoilers – Miller May Return To Play Billy Abbott Again

Doug Davidson (Paul Williams), while never off-contract, is being seen more regularly. Greg Rikaart (Kevin Fisher), Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe Mitchell), Michelle Stafford (Phyllis Summers), and Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea Lawson Boudreau) have all recently returned.

Stafford’s unexpected exit from GH, where she played Nina Clay from 2014-2019, was a stunner. So too was her revival of the Y&R character she made iconic. Possibly, another well-known actor, Miller, who also once portrayed a legacy character, will come back to Y&R as well.

Fans of ‘The Young and the Restless’ rightfully express their opinions on a regular basis. So, will Billy Miller return to play Billy Abbott again? Please vote in our poll below!

      I agree, in fact to look at his picture he will look too young for Vicky. Leave things along. Also please get old Phill some decent clothes.

  3. Kim says

    I like Jason Thompson, he had to grow on me…I do like Michelle Stafford better as Phyliss, I think Gina was done wrong, but why do they want to keep bringing older people back that had the role before. I think this Jason fits Victoria better.

      No way Billy Millers chemistry with Victoria was off the charts, very little excitement with Jason Thompson …I love Villy but the original 1000%

      1. Kim says

        I did not say that I disliked Billy Miller..Just Jason has grown on me, if Miller comes back it is ok….

  4. Kathy Benson says

    I am use to Jason Thompson since he joined in January of 2016 first episode , also got use to Gina Tognoni as Phyllis .

  5. Elizabeth Barrett says

    I like Jason Thompson and I miss the chemistry he had with Gina, was a big “Philly” fan!! I thought it was awful the way they got rid of her!!

  6. Ann says

    I voted not sure because the question was will he should if it was due I want him to my answer would be no. They did Gino wrong and if they do the same to Jason Thompson I am done. I have never before threatened to leave the show like so many do and I have disagreed with that threat over not liking the story or if your favorite couple is together, but I cannot support a business that treats their employees that way. I actually adored Billy Miller and still do but I love Jason Thompson in the rules equally as well. I do not have the same problem when an actor is recast because the current one usually a recast is not clicking in the role or with the fans that is a different story, But Gino was very well received by the fans as Jason Thompson is. To me it is the Writers saying we don’t care what the fans want we want what we want. The return of Michelle Stafford has done nothing for the ratings and I think Billy Miller will not either.
