As of now, it’s unclear if Drew’s character will leave the show or be recast should Miller exit.
However, there are some recent GH auditions that fit the bill of a recast Drew. Also, there is the question if the soap will audition older actors to try and get rid of that awkward 10-year age gap between twins Drew Cain and Jason Morgan (Steve Burton).

General Hospital Spoilers: Billy Miller Leaves The Soap For New Opportunity?
GH spoilers know Y&R fans are hoping Billy Miller will come back to their show if he leaves the ABC sudser. However, there is talk of Billy Miller leaving soaps for a new endeavor. Reese Witherspoon’s prodcution company cast Billy Miller on for a new TV series called Truth Be Told. Additionally, three sources told TV Source contacts that Billy Miller is out at the soap, although official confirmation isn’t forthcoming yet.
The last time this chatter came up asserting that Miller might swap back to CBS and push Jason Thompson out of his former role as Billy Abbott, CBS came spoke out. The network rarely comments. But in this case they did, saying Jason Thompson was staying put and they were not in talks to recast the role. However, that was a totally different regime and if CBS doesn’t speak up now, that might be a hint.
So, he could follow Michelle Stafford right back over to their old show. So, there is always a chance Miller could go back to Y&R. But, he does have a new show in the works say General Hospital spoilers. So, if Billy Miller is leaving, he no doubt has many options for where he’ll go and what he can do.
Billy Miller. Out. Heard from three reliable sources. Am I confident enough to run an article on it? If I had additional quotes on it sure.

GH Spoilers: What’s Next For Drew?
General Hospital spoilers wonder what will be next for Drew Cain. Certainly, his big storyline with Oscar Nero’s (Garren Stitt) death is coming to a close. Also, there doesn’t seem to be a love interest anywhere in sight. So, it leaves fans to wonder if Billy Miller’s exit would cause Drew to leave as well. Or, if the soap would recast the role.
However, there is one major storyline that still needs a conclusion – Drew’s missing memories. No doubt, that pesky flash drive containing Drew’s memories is still on viewers minds. Especially, because it could be the key to taking down Shiloh Archer. Certainly, nothing else seems to be able to. So, GH may recast Drew to keep both of these intriguing plots going.
As it stands, this talk about Miller’s exit also has fans worried Steve Burton might also go.
General Hospital Auditioning Hunks That Could Fit The Bill Of Drew
GH spoilers tease the soap is auditioning actors. Some fit the role of Drew Cain based on looks, age, and description. In addition, Mark Lawson who is known for his role as Brody Lovett on One Life To Live recently auditioned for an unknown role. Certainly, it seems like he would fit well with the role of Drew.
Also, it would make sense for General Hospital to audition older actors. That fixes the sizeable age gap between Jason and Drew. Especially, because Drew and Jason Morgan are beginning to get along and could spend more time together. Mark Lawson is nearly 40 and fits the same basic description as Billy Miller physically.
Remember, Oscar’s dying wish was for his dad and uncle to form a bond as real brothers. Certainly, this would be another good reason to keep Drew’s character around. Watch GH on ABC weekdays to see what the future holds for Drew Cain and his portrayer Billy Miller.
