Y&R's Phillip Is Back! Is There a "Chance" for Driscoll To Return, Too?


Thom Bierdz -- last seen as THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS' Phillip for Billy and Victoria's wedding -- reveals that he's coming back to the show for February sweeps! "Some good storylines reach a climax then," the actor teased this week in an email letter to fans.

Returning to Y&R isn't the only good news the actor has to share: his memoir, Forgiving Troy, was a recent Top 10 best seller in its category on Amazon.com, and "is in the hands of a major movie star considering producing a film on it," he says. "I am a very lucky man and thank you for all your love and support." (The tome is also available on the actor's website, www.thombierdz.com.)

There's buzz that Bierdz isn't the only Genoa City hunk to be making a return. John Driscoll may reprise his role as Chance to help his dying brother Ronan, who is in need of a life-saving liver transplant.

Look for Bierdz to air on Wednesday, February 9, and Friday, February 10. Regarding Driscoll's return, a rep for Y&R says that the show "does not comment on rumors, storylines or contracts."
