Jason Thompson is about to make his debut in Genoa City!

The actor, who last aired as GENERAL HOSPITAL’s Patrick last week, will appear as THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS’ Billy Abbott in the Wednesday, Jan. 13, episode.

The role was previously played by Burgess Jenkins, whose last day as Billy was Jan. 8. As his gambling debts piled up, Billy was beaten in a parking garage by his bookie’s goon on New Year’s Eve, and was then accidentally run over by a car driven by Noah.

Billy has lingered near death since then, but obviously with Thompson assuming the part, the character will recover, even if he’ll end up looking slightly different!

Check out the promo featuring Thompson’s Y&R debut, and let us know what you would like to see from Billy’s new portrayer in the comments!
