    I can understand maybe why the change. No one can play Billy Abbott like the last actor. Just my opinion. Maybe the new guy will be a good fit. Got my fingers crossed.

    At least the possible new Billy looks to be the right age. This Billy acts and looks like a teenager.

    This could be a smoke screen I think this guy will be Adam Newman, and if this story is true and DT was let go, then obviously MM will be back

    David Tom was the original but for me Billy Miller is Billy Abbott.but David with this cast looks way to young and is all wrong for Vicky.if they bring on this guy I think it would even out the field.put David up with guy who plays stitch and he looks like a little boy but this new guy.oh yes he could hold his own so bring him on.

    That's too bad, I was just thinking today how DT is settling in to his part.

    What??? That's bull why did they let him go he's been doing a good job

    No one I mean no one can play Billy Abbott like Billy Miller! Loved this guy on One Tree Hill, but he would make a better Adam Newman. I think tricia98 may be on to something.

    I am very happy to hear David Tom. Is out. He totally ruined the role of Billy for me. I was a huge fan before and loved Villy. I don't think this new guy has the charm of Billy Miller but he has to be better than DT. Please redeem Billy and put Villy back together. They were sweet and heartwarming. Killing Delia destroyed the show.

    He looks more like Adam to me. Love me some Billy Miller but the writers have ruin Billy Abbott with the death of Delia. At this point the character should just ride off into the sunset.

    This is getting to be absurd! Why kick DT out now? He was doing okay, although @times I found him to be amusing when he was supposed to be serious! Damn, this show doesn't know WHAT it wants or WHO it wants! I do know that this guy sure can't be Adam! They'd have to come better than that! But he might make a good Billy...
