General Hospital's Billy Miller Talks Giving The Character Of Jason Some Levity & The Prospect Of Working With Tony Geary!

Three-time Daytime Emmy winner Billy Miller chatted with the Associated Press on taking over the coveted role of Jason Morgan on ABC’s General Hospital.

Miller who took over the role, formerly played by Y&R’s Steve Burton, said that to make the role his own he believes adding some levity to the character you play in this very dramatic genre is a good thing.

Billy noted: “It’s more fun in this genre whenever you can add some lightness to it or make it funny. You don’t get a lot of room for that, so I usually look for it. It’s a scary position for this guy who is so lost and doesn’t know who he is, (so) you match that with a little bit of humor.”

Working with Anthony Geary (Luke) in  some scenes is something Miller would definitely up for, if and when Jason and Luke cross paths.  Miller revealed, ““I can’t wait for that acting class.”

For now, Miller is looking forward when his Port Charles past and present worlds collide: “It really does offer up some great story if we decide to go there.  I really hope that’s how we explore this because I feel like that might be more my strength.”

So, are you enjoying Billy Miller’s performance of Jason AKA “Jake” Morgan thus far and his spin on the character?  Comment below!

Billy Miller is just amazing at just about everything. His skill and sincerity pour out in all of the roles he takes on. I don’t see him as replacing Steve Burton. I see him as being the current Jason Morgan. He has HUGE talent and he is so beautiful to look at. I hope they write great storylines for him. Most of all I hope the powers that be at General Hospital do everything to keep him happy there because he is genius and fantastic in his acting and talent should never be overlooked or taken for granted. Praises to… Read more »

I don’t think it’s spin. I think Billy is playing a character that is entirely different and he is making no effort to give fans even a glimpse of Jason Morgan. There is a difference between “mimicking” another actor and putting your own spin on a role and he is doing neither. It seems that he’s just doing what he wants, being encouraged to do that by TPTB, and it makes no sense to me. Amnesia or circumstances would not turn Jason Morgan into an extroverted jokester. It makes no sense. There could have been some subtlety and a gradual… Read more »

This Jason was recreated in lab of horrors.. He cost millions and 2 years time, he was/is an experiment.. There are many things that could have been done to Jason, and most likely were done, if not then the Cassadines would not want their property, Jason back.. He is now important to the Cassadines.. Victor said ‘Jason is now his .. also- Jason use to be a humorous fun guy before his accident and brain surgery.. He/Billy is more like Jason Q use to be .. Jason was not always ”stone cold” .. he was more like he is being… Read more »

Jason Q was not a clown and he is now 20 years older. It is obvious that this type of character that BM is playing is what he is most comfortable playing is doing so regardless of whether it fits. Just like Roger Howarth coming on as Franco but playing it like snarky Todd. It is not a coincidence that Billy Miller is playing Jason this way and trying to bend the story to fit and make sense of it doesn’t work. The material is being written to suit the actor and it doesn’t make sense for the character. It… Read more »

I dont think he is really Jason…he’ll be Jason for awhile until we learn who he really is and why Helene is using him in yet another fake person storyline…sigh!!!

Billy Miller is Jason II. The only way he would ever be an impostor if after being on GH for a while and wanting to leave and Steve wanting to return would they maybe flesh Billy out and Steve in as Jason I and Jason II. Jason II would be an Helena Cassadine lab project.

Billy Miller is the one reason I am still watching GH! He makes every role his own and adds dimension and humor to all of his characters. Can’t wait to see where he takes this, plus he has chemistry with everyone he works with!

I don’t think he is the “real” Jason. In a few years, SB will tire of playing that boring Dylan on YR, then wanna head back to GH, it will then be explained that Jake wasn’t the real Jason and the whole thing was a scam by the Cassadines. I seriously cannot see BM sharing scenes with Sonny Corinthos. Hence I don’t think this is the real Jason, just a fake planted by Helena.

Thats what ive been saying for the longest time: that BM is playing a fake Jason…reprogrammed by the Cassidines to think he is Jason for one of their sinister plots…notice how Helene isnt eager to recapture him, especially knowing that ‘fake Jake’ could regain his memory…if really Jason…and know she is keeping Robin against her will…so if he suddenly remembers being ‘Jason’ and doesnt remember Robin he could be an imposter…i said it often and i still say it: he IS in imposter!

I think so too. If they really wanted Jason back, they would have come back without that who new face thing, like Ridge in B&B. GH is trying to make everyone believe that “Jason Morgan” has “returned” to the canvas, and by showing him with Robin, getting hit and having reconstructed surgery is to prove that it is Jason. I mean, they’re copying the same storyline with Roman Brady/John Black. Unlike Adam Newman, Steve wasn’t fired, so there’s a chance that Steve might return. I really hope that Steve Burton returns to the show, other wise we’re look like fools… Read more »

If he’s really not Jason then why did Robin recognized him when he revealed himself to her? Why does Liz feel that there’s something familiar about him? Why does Danny run to his father despite the fact that he has a new face?

Billy Miller is doing a great job! I love his take on Jason. Jason Morgan was a whole new man, so this Jason had to be a whole new man. I miss him on YR, but it’s worth the sacrifice. Steve Burton’s doing a great job there too! Interesting switch.

Some of the criticisms here are pretty low. Roger HOWARTH wasn’t hired to mimic James franco, and Billy Miller wasn’t hired to mimic Steve burton. The way you get the most out of an actor is to let them flex their talent, and that is what they are all doing. And Steve BURTON HAS A GREAT character in Dylan on Y&R. It’s given him a chance to flex his acting muscles and he’s done so with aplomb. These are all individuals, human beings, and they have a right to make career changes without our approval, and, they have a right… Read more »

Today’s episode proves that Billy Miller’s Jason is in fact the real Jason Morgan. If that doesn’t convince you that Jason has return that I don’t know what will!

Gregory Harrison Is The New Gregory Chase On General Hospital

General Hospital just got hotter as it beef’s up its storyline featuring Kim Delaney as Jackie Templeton.  Now comes word that TV veteran, Gregory Harrison has come to the ABC daytime drama series as the recast Gregory Chase.

The character of Gregory Chase was previously played by DAYS James Read, who plays the treacherous Clyde Weston now and then on the NBC soap.
