Former General Hospital Star Joining The Young & The Restless?
Longtime General Hospital fan favorite, Steve Burton, who played ‘hit man’ Jason Morgan is rumored to be joining The Young and The Restless. Burton who played Jason Morgan for 21 years on General Hospital, left the show in September. He had cited that he wanted to relocate to Nashville with his wife and kids for a better quality of life.
Burton is rumored to be moving to Genoa City to join the cast of the Young and The Restless. Jill Farren Phelps, Burton’s former boss at General Hospital and now executive producer at the Young and The Restless, are also business associates.
Meanwhile, veteran soap star, Stephen Nichols, was recently let go by The Young and The Restless to trim budget. Some say to make room for Burton. Rumors say a major role has been written for Burton and he’ll be starting soon.
His character on General Hospital was shot, but no body was found, which means his role might be recast. Stay tuned!
