He’s left the building…mostly his choice?…let go…he’s a good actor who seems destined for better things(GH or Days should snap him up but i think he could have a good shot at primetime or films)…he’ll move on and we should too!!!

“mostly his choice,” yes, but TPTB could have done more to keep him on the show. He deserved “outs” like other major actors get on the soaps, but they didn’t want to pay him what he’s worth.

At least with this situation, I’m not as upset as with the MM firing. Now THAT is unacceptable and may be the deal-breaker for me continuing to watch this show, which has become a crap-fest!

I agree with you!! As soon as I see the last episode that Michael Muhney is on I’m never gonna watch the show again! :’-( how could they do this!!?

Can we finally move on this guy is not the second coming he was 10 minutes on a justified episode and in a lifetime movie supposedly playing a bad guy smiling the whole time. Goodbye! Welcome back David Tom!

LMFAO! “Playing a bad guy smiling the whole time” lol too funny but he has grown on me, when I first started watching Y&R I used to say “he gotta go with his non acting self” lol but I started seeing as, he just has a different style of acting,,,, I guess lol

Dang!! I’m a new fan (been watching for almost a year now) and I have fallen in love with Billy!, he’s so handsome! He’s also a phenomenal actor!! First lil DD and now him!? WHHHYYYYYY!!! I’m heart broken in real life but can’t wait to see what he does next sexy self lol!
I enjoyed this goodbye video!
*but if my real sexy boo, Adam (Michael Muhney) leaves the show that’ll be the straw that breaks the camels back!

I guess it was anti-climatic; as he has been leaving so often. This time there wasn’t another one year extension. Great actor, appears to be a great guy and partyier! He will be missed, but in soaps this is just par for course.

He would be a perfect Jason recast on GH…. maybe Jason is in a coma and wakes up as Jason pre-mob??!!! In any case he would be better there than on Y&R. With Jill Farren Phelps in charge, Y&R is unwatchable period!

Nikki

Why ANYONE would hire Jill Farren Phelps after she almost ruined General Hospital is beyond me. It makes me think CBS wants their number 1 soap to fail.

Quetta

Is this why it has been so boring and drawn out lately? I’m a slightly new fan. I almost stopped watching when I saw Phyllis go into another coma before she could tell what Sharon did. They are just dragging the situation out too long for me..

Well I’d like to wish Billy Miller good luck for his future projects he played the part well espicially when he argues with Victor I will miss that because since the role will be un-recasts with David Tom there will be no more arguments and figthing with Victor. I welcome back David Tom in the role and I am looking forward with future storyline involving Billy who will end up with Chloe or someone new.

Billy, you are adorable and an amazing actor. I’m very sorry that you’re leaving the show as you made the role of “Billy” so much fun. Loved your scenes – my interest piqued when you were on the screen. Just watched the new “Billy” – but quickly found that I had no interest in the new actor. Nothing wrong with him but he’s not you. You have the whole package. Wish you a blessed life – do the right things and take care of yourself. I will really miss you on the Y&R.

Will miss you so much Billy. Your a wonderful and very enjoyable actor to watch. On another note when the Hell is Phyllis going to wake up! Stories drag on too long. I hope Jill doesn’t keep doing a number on the Young and Restless. I would hate to see it taken off the air after it has been number one for to long. Best of Luck Billy and God Bless.

‘Grand Hotel’s’ Lincoln Younes Cast As Lead In CW’s Reboot Pilot of ‘The Lost Boys’

In intriguing casting news, Australian-born actor, Lincoln Younes (Ex-Home and Away and most recently ABC’s Grand Hotel, where he played Danny) has landed one of the leading roles in CW’s reboot and upcoming pilot of The Lost Boys based on the 1987 movie.

Joining Younes in the other lead roles in the pilot will be Braeden Cook (Industry) and Ruby Cruz (Castle Rock).

According to Deadline the series is said to be about the following: “When a mother and her Gen Z sons, one played by Cook, move to the seaside town where she grew up, they discover there’s a sinister reason the local cool kids sleep all day, party all night, never grow up and never get old. Family bonds are tested as the brothers find themselves on opposite sides of a mythological struggle. Based on the 1987 cult classic that revolutionized how we think about vampires.”

In The Lost Boys reboot, Younes plays Benjamin, the charismatic leader of the gang of vampires in the town. It is a version of the David character played in the movie by Kiefer Sutherland.

The pilot is written by Heather Mitchell and Rob Thomas and will be directed by Marcos Siega.

So, what do you think of a TV version and reboot of The Lost Boys? Comment below.

Lee Phillip Bell, Legendary Co-Creator Of Y&R and B&B, Passes Away

The entire soap world and daytime community is saddened today with the news of the passing of a true icon and TV pioneer, Lee Phillip Bell.

According to her children, William James Bell, Brad Bell (EP and head writer, B&B) and Lauralee Bell Martin (Christine, Y&R), Lee passed away on February 25th at the age of 91.

They shared: “Our mother was a loving and supportive wife, mother and grandmother.  Gracious and kind, she enriched the lives of all who knew her. We will miss her tremendously.”

Born in Chicago, Illinois on June 9, 1928, Bell was co-creator, along with her late husband William J. Bell, of two of daytime television’s most successful dramas: The Young and the Restless (Y&R), and The Bold and the Beautiful (B&B).

Bell’s career as a broadcast journalist began in Chicago, where she hosted and produced her own show, The Lee Phillip Show, for CBS TV for over 30 years. A pioneer in the evolution of the afternoon talk show format, Bell was a trailblazer in the exploration of timely social issues and concerns.  Additionally she produced and narrated numerous award-winning specials and documentaries covering social concerns such as foster children, the subject of rape, children and divorce, and babies born to women in prison, to name a few.. Bell interviewed heads of state such as Presidents Gerald Ford and Ronald Regan; film actors Judy Garland, Clint Eastwood and Jerry Lewis; musicians such as The Rolling Stones and The Beatles; television and stage stars such as Lucille Ball, Jack Benny and Oprah Winfrey; and many other politicians, authors, journalists, fashion designers and rock stars.

She was awarded 16 regional (Chicago) Emmy awards and numerous Golden Mike awards. Bell is also the recipient of the Alfred I. Dupont/Columbia University Award for the special The Rape of Paulette, the first program in Chicago to explore the issue.  In 1977, she was the first woman to receive the coveted Governors Award from the Chicago chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.  In 1980, she was named “Person of the Year” by the Broadcast Advertising Club of Chicago and the “Outstanding Woman in Communications” by the Chicago YMCA.  She also received the Salvation Army’s William Booth Award for her distinguished career in communications and social service. Bell won the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series as co-creator of The Young and the Restless in 1975 and was recipient of the Daytime Emmys’ Lifetime Achievement Award in 2007.
