American actor Burgess Jenkins has been released from his contract, meaning that the blonde actor has been fired from the CBS show “The Young and the Restless” after joining the show in 2014. He joined as the recast of the fictional character Billy Abbott replacing actor Billy Miller in June 2014. But sadly after playing the role for over one year, he has been fired from the show. According to the latest news, the show is looking for a new face as the recast of Billy Abbott, after they felt the 42 year old should not continue playing the role that he has been playing since Billy Miller left the show.
This isn’t the first time the show has re-casted the role of Billy Abbott, but actually way too many times. Since fan favorite Jason Thompson has left the role of Patrick Drake on ‘General Hospital’ after portraying the role for 10 years, there have been rumors spreading that he will be the one replacing actor Burgess in the role of Billy. Sadly Burgess failed to impress the fans of Billy after portraying the role for over a year, but perhaps Jason will change their minds after the show decides to cast him as Billy. Thompson has a huge fan following after he won the hearts of the fans as Dr. Patrick Drake on “General Hospital”. Would fans accept the new actor to portray Billy? Will the 38 year old actor win the hears of another soap opera after being recast as Billy? Or will some other actor fill in the shoes of Jenkins?
