Quote Canadianchickforever: That "nostalgia" helps him cause DT has chemistry where it really matters and where BM didn't - With the Abbots. Couples come and go, bur Billy Miller's Billy looked like a total outsider when in scenes with the Abbots. David fits in there, that's why there's been so much Jack and Jill interaction. Far more than when Billy Miller was in the part.
I totally disagree. BM had great chemistry with PB and the other Abbotts, they have had great scenes together and he did fit, but there was always that undercurrent of feeling like the underdog, which is part of the character that BM was able to convey. As for DT, it's not like some long lost son has returned. I never missed DT in that role even before BM was cast, but it's all a matter of who you like best and for me it's BM. But, he's gone now, so DT may work out in time, I'm waiting to see if that happens.
