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?

Steve Burton Signs Contract

It has been conformed that Steve Burton (ex-Jason Morgan) has re-signed a contract with his current position as Dylan on The Young and the Restless. For General Hospital fans, this means one of two things… 1) Jason Morgan is not really alive, or 2) He is alive as said by Victor Cassadine but will be recast.

Ron Carlivati Wants James Franco Back!

There has been recent rumors that General Hospital’s Head Writer, Ron Carlivati wants James Franco back! It has been said that Carlivati has told Showbiz411 Writer, Roger Friedman, that he is seeking out James Franco for one more stint on the ABC soap, General Hospital. Carlivati wants Franco back on the set, but it would be a little different this time, perhaps to tie up some loose ends with the story. James would be playing himself, and confronting the current “Franco” character, played by Roger Howarth.

James Franco originated the role of Robert Frank, aka “Franco” in November of 2009. He reeked havoc on the residents of Port Charles, terrorizing anyone that had to do with his obsession, Jason Morgan (Steve Burton). Caught in the crossfire were victims such as Samantha McCall Morgan, Carly Corinthos Jacks, Josslyn Jacks, Michael Corinthos Jr., Lulu Spencer, just to name a few.

General Hospital Blog is looking forward to those involved making this a reality. We would love to see James Franco back at GH!

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.

Michael Fairman Interviews Steve Burton

This Michael Fairman interview with Steve Burton is absolutely amazing. All the questions the fans have been asking since Steve left General Hospital have finally been answered. Many fans are disgruntled, confused, and even angry at what they THINK the facts are related to the entire situation. From Steve leaving GH to move to Tennessee, to then returning to soaps by joining The Young and The Restless, to the way Jason was written off; fans thought the worst of Steve and/or ABC. I sure hope ALL General Hospital and Steve Burton fans read this interview.
The rumors about Steve plotting to go to Y&R all along, or the executives at GH not offering Burton a compromise are untrue. Steve Burton also explains that Jason’s send off was due to lack of time. Time was running out and the writing team had to come up with something. It would be really great to stop reading such negativity from fans who think Steve was untruthful or that ABC just didn’t care enough to keep him. That is entirely not the case. In the interview, Michael asks Steve about the day he left. Steve explains how difficult it was emotionally and mentions that it was very hard on Maurice Benard (Sonny). This actually brought tears to my eyes. He also mentioned that it was very difficult leaving Kelly Monaco Sam), and that it is still weird not being able to see her everyday.
Michael Fairman also asked Steve if there were plans for Jason’s return to GH for the anniversary show. Steve Burton expressed that he would love to come back for the 50th, but since he is now on CBS he is not sure if that will be allowed. All this being out it the open, I hope fans and Steve Burton have closure now in regards to what really happened during and after the time of his exit. After all thins said and done, Steve did what was best for his family and his life.
