Billy Miller

Yesterday, Soap Opera Network featured a Center Stage interview with “The Young and the Restless’” Joshua Morrow (Nicholas Newman) detailing his new film, “Tentacle 8,” which is out on DVD in select stores and on Amazon now. But as promised, we also got the star to open up about all of his “Y&R” drama, too! Read on to get the actor’s take on Sharon’s (Sharon Case) paternity lies, Victor’s (Eric Braeden) machinations, the search for Adam and the recent departure of some of the sudser’s most popular stars!
Anyone who’s been watching “The Young and the Restless” as of late knows that Nicholas Newman’s life is about to be blown to smithereens. Not only has his father been tricking the love of his life into thinking she’s been seeing and speaking with her dead daughter, he’s on the verge of finding out that the very same woman he loves has been lying to him about the true paternity of his daughter! The drama is all pretty typical for Nick’s portrayer, Joshua Morrow — who’s been dealing with twisted Genoa City plots for nearly 20 years — but the drama he faces in his latest stint in the political drama thriller ‘Tentacle 8?’ Not so much! Soap Opera Network spoke with the actor about momentarily stepping away from his ‘Y&R’ craziness to film the exciting project, which is available on DVD in stores and on Amazon today. And we also got him to spill on all of the Victor (Eric Braeden), Sharon (Sharon Case) and Adam (formerly Michael Muhney) drama, too!
“The Young and the Restless” viewers weren’t exactly thrilled when popular actor Billy Miller announced that he would be exiting the role of Billy Abbott, but the rough waters were mostly calmed when former portrayer David Tom (brother of “The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Heather Tom [Katie Logan]) swooped in to take back the role. It’s been a fairly smooth transition for most viewers, but jumping into the middle of such an intense storyline — the death of Delia and having been outed for cheating on Victoria (Amelia Heinle) —was a bit of an adjustment for the actor!
Now that Billy Miller has played out his final scenes as “The Young and the Restless’” Billy Abbott (in a gripping finale in which both he and Michael Muhney’s Adam Newman careened off an icy road after a dramatic showdown regarding the hit and run death of Delia), former portrayer David Tom has stepped back into the role of Victoria’s (Amelia Heinle) hubby. Meanwhile, viewers were shocked to see Marco Dapper return as the very-much-alive Carmine Basco on Friday, January 31! So how did the returns of both actors rate?
This week on "The Young and the Restless" marks the first full week following the dramatic exits of popular actors Billy Miller and Michael Muhney as their characters, Billy Abbott and Adam Newman, respectively, seemingly perished after the vehicle they were in flipped over and exploded. This immediately followed Billy's battle to get Adam to reveal the truth of his supposed involvement in the tragic death of Billy's daughter, Delia. While Adam appears to have disappeared following the accident, Billy eventually survives and is now being portrayed once again by David Tom beginning with today's episode.
On Monday, February 3, CBS' "The Young and the Restless" welcomes actor David Tom back into the role of Billy Abbott. The actor, who last appeared on the soap as teenaged version of the character in August 2002, replaces Billy Miller, who opted to depart the series in order to pursue other projects.
Today marks the first day of the all-important February Sweeps ratings period, and “The Young and the Restless” went all out with not only dramatic scenes between besties Chloe (Elizabeth Hendrickson) and Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan), but also a gripping face-off between Billy (Billy Miller) and Adam (Michael Muhney) that led to both actors’ final appearance on the show!

With many casting changes in place and new faces set to arrive in Genoa City, the next few weeks on “The Young and the Restless” may be a bit of a flurry. But no worries, because Soap Opera Network has got all the upcoming casting deets right here in one handy-dandy reference place!
CBS' "The Young and the Restless" is already bringing it, if ratings are anything to go by, but next week the soap will be kicking things into high gear with Summer's (Hunter King) desire to be perfect turning into a deadly situation and Billy (Billy Miller) getting ever closer to learning the truth about Adam's (Michael Muhney) possible role in the death of his daughter.
