Emmy winner David Tom, who played the role of Y&R's Billy from 1999-2002, is returning to the show, replacing two-time Emmy winner Billy Miller, who has opted to leave. After a new deal between Miller and the soap he's called home since 2008 hit a standstill, the show brought actors – including Tom – in to read as possible replacements. "I respect Billy Miller's decision to move on and wish him great success in his future endeavors," tweeted Angelica McDaniel, head of CBS Daytime. "Please join me in welcoming Daytime Emmy winner David Tom back to #YR and @CBSDaytime as Billy Abbott's exciting storyline continues." Tom is the brother of Heather Tom (Katie, B&B).
