Steve Burton Not Thrilled About ‘Jason Morgan’ Recast

There has been a lot of talk in the last couple of months that the role of Jason Morgan will be recast in the near future. Recently fans have learned that Jason is not actually dead but he is frozen along with some Cassadines. Victor Cassadine has called upon one of Jason’s oldest and best friends, Robin Scorpio to help him help Helena and Stavros (who are in the same predicament as poor Jason). Robin agreed to help in order to save Jason.

With Robin off to God knows where with Victor Cassadine working on saving her friend, the fans are wondering what is going to happen with the role of Jason Morgan. Will he be recast? Will Steve Burton reprise the role? Last month Steve Burton announced on Twitter that he is staying put at The Young and the Restless.

It has been rumored that ex Y & R star, Billy Miller would the the first choice to take on the role of Jason. Although Steve Burton isn’t thrilled about some else filling his shoes as the iconic mob enforcer, he did make a statement regarding Billy Miller. Burton recently told Soaps in Depth, “When all that talk was going on, I said to myself ‘Billy would be perfect.’ It’s a character I played for a long time, and I have a huge emotional connection to him and the people there. It’d be weird to see, but they have to do what they have to do. I understand that.

Now that we have Steve’s blessing to recast Jason with actor Billy Miller, what do the fans think about this potential recast?

Jason Morgan is Alive!

The return of Victor Cassadine (Thaao Penghlis) has caused quite a stir and he has only been on screen for two episodes! As he broke into the home of doctors Robin and Patrick Drake, he proceeded to try and convince Robin to help him with something very important. Victor has told Robin that her dear friend Jason Morgan is alive!  He mentioned that when Jason was shot by Faison and dumped into the harbor, there had been a boat waiting nearby. Jason was transported to Switzerland where Robin and Duke had been held. Helena had put Jason into a cryogenic sleep, and now what Victor Cassadine needs Robin’s help. With giving this information to Robin about Jason, he now has the leverage to convince her to help him save Helena and Stavros Cassadine. If Robin helps wake them up from their cryogenic sleep, she will in turn be saving her best friend Jason as well.

What do you think? Is Victor trying to pull as fast one on Robin just to get her to revive Helena and Stavros, or is Jason really ALIVE?

Is Jason Morgan Returning to General Hospital?

 

Will Jason Morgan return from the dead?  General Hospital has been missing a key component since actorSt    Burton left GH  to pursue personal interest. Since then he accepted a role on  The Young and the Restless.  Even if Jason returns to GH,  will the role be played by Steve Burton, or would the actor be replaced?

General Hospital Blog wants to know what the fans think! Would you accept a Jason recast, or is Steve Burton the only Jason Morgan?

 

Jason Morgan… RECAST with a Y&R Star?

The latest and largest rumor circulating the soap opera scene is that the legendary character of Jason Morgan is set to be recast. Steve Burton left General Hospital after playing Jason Quartermaine (Morgan) for 21 years. After the actor left GH, he soon signed a contract with The Young and the Restless.

Fans have been missing their beloved Jason for a little over a year now. We have mourned his loss right alongside his wife Sam, his family, and friends. When Jason was shot and kicked off the docks at Pier 52 by Cesar Faison, it left it sort of open ended for the actor and/or character to return to the canvas. Now that Sam has been trying to move on with Dr. Silas Clay, would this be the time for Jason’s return? Sam had been talking to Patrick about his miracle in getting his wife Robin back, and she seems to be accepting after all this time, that Jason is not going to come back to her. She said to Patrick, “There’s only one miracle to go around.”

One source suggests that perhaps the role of Jason will be taken over by former Y&R actor Billy Miller. Miller has been recently replaced by David Tom in his role on The Young and the Restless. This leaves Billy Miller open to the role. Nothing has been confirmed and there is no story line in place as of yet.

Jason NOT Returning to General Hospital

I have been getting a lot of inquiries from fans wondering whether or not Steve Burton will be returning to GH as Jason Morgan. The answer for now is no. Steve Burton who played Jason Quartermaine/Morgan for 21 years on General Hospital has confirmed that he has signed on to The Young and the Restless on CBS. Obviously, things change at any given time in the soap world so there is not a solid answer on whether Steve will ever come back as Jason. For now, he is not. As for a recast of Jason, nothing has been said or confirmed on whether or not the character will eventually be played by another actor. Recently Steve Burton was a guest on The Talk and he explained how Y&R is willing to give him a flexible schedule so that he can keep his family in Tennessee where they choose to reside. This will make it easier for him to get back and forth to his family. I hope this clears up all the fan’s questions and concerns regarding Jason Morgan and Steve Burton’s status with General Hospital.

Saying Goodbye to Jason Morgan

Jason’s last air date on General Hospital was early this week after he was shot by Duke Lavery, and kicked into the harbor. His best friend, Sonny, and his wife, Sam both went into the harbor looking for him. All Sam found was Jason’s half of their symbols of love… she found The Dragon. We all have the same question: “Is Jason Morgan really dead?” It looks that way, for now. Steve Burton has decided to move to Tennessee with his family, a dream he and his family have had for a long time. He is fulfilling that dream, and whether or not he is ever coming back to GH to reprise his role of Jason Morgan is uncertain. It is also uncertain whether or not Jason will ever be recast.
