IT'S OFFICIAL: JASON THOMPSON IS Y&R'S NEW BILLY!

Entertainment Weekly broke the long-rumored news that Jason Thompson, who just wrapped up his 10-year run as GH's Patrick, is joining Y&R as Billy. In an exclusive interview with Digest — on sale next week — Thompson says, "There are a lot of guys who have played this character and one of them did it for a number of years, Billy [Miller, now GH’s Jason]. I’ve become really friendly with Billy and we’ve had a couple conversations about it and he was nothing but gracious to me… It’s going to be hard to fill his shoes." For more with the actor, check out the issue of Soap Opera Digest on sale next week.
