Billy Campbell Cast on Melrose Place

by at . Comments

This may be confusing, so follow along:

Andrew Shue played a character named Billy Campbell on Melrose Place. He's not returning to the revamped series, however.

But an actor with the same name is coming on board The CW drama, Billy Campbell will play a billionaire named Barrett McMillan. He'll debut on episode 13 as a love interest for Heather Locklear's Amanda Woodward.

Barrett McMillan

Campbell starred opposite Locklear on Dynasty and appeared for seven episodes on The OC as Carter Buckley.

Is this a good casting choice? We think so.

Billy Campbell is an excellent choice for Melrose Place. He is a Golden Globe nominee and has won the Ovation award for lead actor for his stage performance in Fortinbras. He has appeared in Hamlet on stage. He has also appeared in movies (The Rocketeer, Enough) and on TV (The 4400's, Once and Again, Crime Story, Tales of the City miniseries). Excellent choice!
