After two recent high profile dismissals from daytime, Billy Warlock is once again headed back to give soaps another shot. But this time around Warlock is doing something that he hasn't done in nearly 21 years: he is getting ready to head into uncharted waters.
In May, Warlock will join the cast of The Young and the Restless in the role of Ben Hollander, Jack Abbott's new campaign manager in the show's fictional race for the Wisconsin State Senate.
The newly created Y&R role will mark the first time since joining DAYS that Warlock has been the first actor to step into the shoes of his daytime alter ego. While Warlock may have been the actor with the longest run as General Hospital's AJ, Warlock was actually the eighth actor to tackle the role. He assumed the role from another well-known daytime star, Sean Kanan.
A spokesperson for The Young and the Restless was not immediately available for comment.
Warlock will make his first Y&R appearance on May 7th.
