For his part, James will be spending some of his birthday talking with two of his Young and Restless co-stars, Daniel Goddard (Cane Ashby) and Jason Thompson (Billy Abbott; Patrick Drake, General Hospital), on the Bildbord app. The social media app that launched in May is a joint venture between James and Goddard that connects fans with similar interests according to their hashtags.

Reacting to Daniel Goddard’s Twitter post about being interviewed, Thompson quote retweeted, “On Bryton’s birthday? I’m honored! See you Monday.” To which James replied, “Can’t wait.”

Despite the hiatus from Young and Restless over the past few months, James has had a busy year. In addition to launching Bildbord, James celebrated his one year anniversary with Sarpy in May, bought and moved into a condo with his lady love, won a Daytime Emmy, and is now back to work on the CBS soap opera. If the past several months are any indication it looks like 34 is going to be a good year for the Young and Restless star.
