Burgess Jenkins finds post Y&R success opposite Academy Award winner

The Young and the Restless alum Burgess Jenkins (ex-Billy Abbott) has quite The Reason to be happy following his daytime stint, having landed a role in a new film starring Oscar winner Louis Gossett Jr.

It hasn't been long since The Young and the Restless' Burgess Jenkins (ex-Billy Abbott) left Genoa City, and he's already found post-daytime success. The actor just started filming a part in the upcoming film The Reason, starring An Officer and a Gentleman and Roots' actor Louis Gossett Jr.

Jenkins shared a behind-the-scenes look at a scene from the drama on his Twitter page, writing: "That's a wrap on day one of a fantastic new project #TheReasonMovie @RealFreiburger @alanpowell10"

The film, based on the William Sirls book of the same name, follows a small-town pastor, his wife, and their sick child as their lives are forever changed by a mysterious man sent to give them hope. Sirls adapted his book for the screen, writing the screenplay with Aviv Rubinstein and Richard Clark Jr.

In addition to Jenkins and Gossett (who won an Oscar for his role as Sergeant Emil Foley in the Richard Gere film An Officer and a Gentleman and will be presenting at this Sunday's 88th Annual Academy Awards), The Reason stars Beverly Todd, Tatyana Ali, and Kelly Carlson.

Jenkins played Y&R's Billy from June 2014 to January 2016. Prior to that, he starred in Army Wives, Nashville, One Tree Hill, and many other projects.
