Steve Burton left his 21 year run on ABC’s General Hospital in 2012. He played the iconic role of Jason Quartermaine/Morgan, and become the Daytime TV face of the Port Charles mob, alongside c0-star Maurice Benard (Sonny Corinthos).
Burton’s departure from his role as Jason on GH became one of the biggest upsets in Daytime. Burton’s decision came as a result of what was said to be what was best for his family. He joined the cast of CBS’ The Young and the Restless, as Dylan McAvoy.
The role of Jason Morgan was recast by Y&R vet, Billy Miller. It was hard for fans to accept at the beginning, however, JaSam fans have accepted and embraced the new role.
Steve Burton has confirmed via Twitter, his departure from Y&R this coming December, at his contract’s end.
What will Steve decide next?
Would you like to see him reprise his role as Jason Morgan on General Hospital?
Two of General Hospital’s most well known actors are real life friends and are about to reunite through a new project. The legendary Lucky Spencer, portrayed by Jonathan Jackson, and the iconic Jason Morgan formerly played by Steve Burton for 21 years, have joined forces outside ABC Studios.
The two have parted ways from General Hospital, as Steve Burton now plays Dylan McAvoy on The Young and the Restless, and Jonathan Jackson has moved to ABC’s Primetime drama, Nashville, as Avery Barkley. Although they are no longer co-workers in show biz, they are taking their colleague-ship in an entirely new direction.
Jackson and Burton have announced that they, along with third co-owner, restaurateur, Richard Shannon will open a Tennessee Smokehouse. The venue has been described as “a family-friendly, world class,” restaurant and concert venue.
At Jack and Jameson’s Smoke House, expect to indulge in barbecue and burgers, and will have 15-20 local brews on tap.
In the area or looking to vacation in Tennessee? General Hospital fans all over the country are ecstatic about this recent news.
