New this morning from Steve Burton (Ex-Jason, GH and Dylan Y&R) via a very personal video he shared with fans of the band Port Chuck.  His longtime friend and Port Chuck band member, Scott Reeves (Ex-Y&R and GH) has been hospitalized in Nashville due to what thus far has been said to be a minor heart condition.

Burton went to say that because of Reeves situation, the current Port Chuck tour schedule has to be postponed. The band also consists of GH favorites, Bradford Anderson (Spneilli) and Brandon Barash (Ex-Johnny).

Steve delivered this message via Twitter: “I hate to even have to shoot this video. But I just wanted to share with you that we are going to have to postpone and reschedule the Port Chuck dates because Scott has been hospitalized. He came to pick me up this morning, about 3:30 a.m. my time and he said he had a little pain below his sternum for the last day and I could tell that he was really, really uncomfortable … We were driving to the airport and he wanted to fly to L.A. and go to the emergency room in L.A. and I could tell that he was in a lot of pain, so I said, ‘No, we’re going to go to the emergency room right now,’ and we did, and right now, from what we can tell, or what they can tell, he has a minor heart condition. They are basically admitting him to the hospital, they admitted him now and he’s being evaluated, so please pray for him, his family would appreciate that, Scott would, obviously — he loves you guys, and he hates this more than anybody, but obviously his health is paramount and we’ll come up with the dates that we are going to reschedule. It’ll be sooner than later, hopefully, as long as we get great news today about Scott and I’ll keep you updated.” 

Please send your well-wishes to Scott and the Reeves family at this time in the comment section below.

Scott,
I will be praying for you, I am so glad that Steve was with and got you to the emergency room. Without a doubt your health is most important. I will continue to pray for you and your family! Please take care of yourself and get back to feeling better real soon…. God’s speed! !!

Thank goodness Steve had the good sense to take Scott to an emergency room instead of flying cross country.

Prays to Scott and his family.

Can’t fool around with heart symptoms. News lately has not been good, especially for males.

You are so right, Irene. Men are more susceptible to having heart attacks than women. Our physiology is vastly different from that of men’s.
However, women are much more prone to die from a heart attack, especially, after menopause. Men have a higher rate of survival ( according to my husband…..he’s my source).
Fortunately, there has been so much progress where women and ‘the heart’ is concerned. The symptoms are so different from men’s that women would often get the wrong diagnosis.

Love Scott. As a young girl, I remember watching him, as Ryan, on Y&R…….well-wishes and blessings to him and his family…..speedy recovery.

Prayers being said for you and your family. Thanks Steve for your swift wisdom regarding Scott’s health. I am sure you made a difference. God bless.

Prayers to Scott and family…also, THANK YOU Steve for being there for Scott, that’s what one calls a true friend that cares…GOD BLESS you all…Take care Scott.

Oh my god, Scott please get well my friend. You are a wonderful actor. I am praying for you and Melissa.

sending my best to the family! Hope he will be okay!!

Hoping for good outcome and speedy recovery

God Bless you Scott and your family. Thank you Steve for being at right place and time. Prayers definitely going up for all of you.

A good man please keep us informed SB! Never has daytime had a nicer man or a more generous soul!

0h wow..
I never seen him before and I was wow, he was Jason and Dylan in a past era..
I would really like to see/hear Port Chuck, once again ..

He played Steven Webber on GH Su. Remember? Heather’s son, Steven Lars…Olivia F’s fiance? Wanted to leave the show (he’s on Nashville now…plays Scarlett and Gunner’s manager) so they sent him to jail…

Sending blessings and prayers for healing and wholeness-

Sending lots of love and good vibes to Scott and his wonderful family. Take care of yourself.

Steve, thank you for first of all being with Scott and not waiting till you got to LA to get him to the hospital and second for taking the time to let all of his fans know whats going on..its because of this we can all send our thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery period to Scott and prayers for strength to Melissa and their kids. I will continue to send prayers to you all as long as you need them.

Awwwww!! Love your post, abby. So moving.

get well soon sending get well soon

Considering the heart is a vital organ I don’t think anything wrong with it should be labelled as minor– maybe some conditions are not immediately life threatening but any heart ailment should be taken seriously– if you are having any kind of chest pain people — have it check out— he waited a whole day– and if SB hadn’t force the issue he would have gotten on plane and waited even longer — thankfully it wasn’t a heart attack– but if it have been this could have been a whole different article—-take care Scott and hope you are back up and singing soon.

Another well-thought -out post, Mary. Kudos.

Thank you Steve for taking Scott to Nashville ER. You saved his life for sure. Our prayers are with Scott and family and doctors who are taking care of him.

Aloha from Hawaii!
My thoughts and prayers are with you, Scott and the Reeves family. Wishing you a full and speedy recovery!!
Thank you to Steve for taking good care of your ‘brother’!!
Blessings to ALL of you.

I cannot believe you are actually posting with us. LOL.
I find it so refreshing, Tonja….

Tonja, so sorry for misspelling your name…

Scott, I met you, Steve and Jonathan at Jack and Jameson’s on opening night. My friend; Jasmine and I had the best time! The food and the entertainment were both great and you were so much fun. You humored me when I told you that you needed to get out of jail – there are people in Port Charles who have done much worse and are still running around loose. Heck, you killed somebody we don’t know, for Pete’s sake! :o)
I told you, too, that you need to come home because Elizabeth can’t find Gran or her kids and Olivia needs somebody. We laughed a good while; you have a wonderful laugh.
Seriously, get better soon. We need your laughter.
I’m praying for you.
Be Blessed.

Blessing’s Scott and hope you have a quick recovery and let. Steve you were the voice of reason and strength. God’s watching over you both 😉

It was so sad to hear about you being sick, glad Steve got you to the hospital quickly, please when you have pain you must listen to your body, we love you & want you around for a long time to come. I know you men are very macho but please take care. I was ready to see you guys in San Antonio, that event has been rescheduled for May 18, 2017 can’t wait to see you. Praying for a speedy recovery now you know what your dealing with thank God for the warning now take care. See you soon can’t wait but don’t overwork yourself either. Hugs Dawn said it Best God is Watching over you

Prayers for you Scott and your family. Hope you feel better soon and that you will be back on your feet and singing and doing what you love to do.

I pray God will touch your heart and heal. Bless Steve for his help and his good advice to you. At times God puts people together in certain places for a reason. Speedy recovery and prayers go to you and your family.

Mazel Tov ! You saved your friends life! Every adult regardless of their physical condition should know the signs of a heart in distress. So much is genetic. Get well soon Scott! You have a long life in front of you.

Steve Burton Confirms ‘General Hospital’ Head Writer Switch Changed Jason’s Comeback Storyline

General Hospital viewers will see today, Monday, March 4th, the beginnings of the return storyline for Steve Burton and his character of Jason Morgan.

Just how did the recent head writing regime change at GH alter the plans for story for Jason’s comeback? As had been rumored, seems plenty. Back on January 22nd, it was revealed that Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor had been replaced by Patrick Mulcahey and Elizabeth Korte. At that time, Burton had already signed-on to return to the daytime drama for the first time since being let go towards the end of 2021.

Speaking with Soap Opera Digest, Steve confirmed that what we will see on-air is from the new head writers and that the direction of the story changed, “So apparently there was a whole different story planned and then the head writer switch happened and then they kind of rebooted (the story arc). I know Patrick (Mulcahey, one of the new head writers) a little bit, but I really know Elizabeth Korte (who was promoted to co-head writer).”

Burton added, “There’s no one in the building that loves that show, knows the history of the character, and is invested in it 100 percent than Elizabeth. There has never been a more deserved promotion, ever. Once I know that she was (one of the head writers), I was like, ‘Oh, this is gonna be good! I cannot wait.’ And it has been exactly that. Everything has been amazing.”‘

In addition, during an Instagram live on Monday with his podcast and comedy show partner, GH star, Bradford Anderson (Spinelli), Burton also commented on the upcoming story arc which brings Jason back to Port Charles. Steve expressed, “The story is not going to disappoint. The scenes are super deep. Frank (Valentini, EP, GH)  and the new head writers took some time to really think this out.”

Burton, being a longtime veteran of the soaps, said Jason’s return is not just isolated to be about him. “Great story on daytime should involve a myriad of people across the board and where it effects everybody,” he shared. The popular fan favorite feels that this story delivers on all levels.

So, what do you think about the head writer change and how it prompted the plans for Jason’s return? Comment below.

Jason Cook Recalls Landing His Soap Roles as DAYS Shawn-Douglas Brady and GH’s Matt Hunter

Daytime fans remember Jason Cook when he became wildly-popular as Hope (Kristian Alfonso) and Bo’s (Peter Reckell) son, Shawn-Douglas Brady on Days of our Lives from 1999-2006. He later made a brief return in the role in 2015 for the series 50th anniversary.

After departing DAYS, Cook was offered a role on General Hospital as Dr. Matt Hunter, the younger brother to Dr. Patrick Drake (Jason Thompson) from 2008-2012. However, during his time on the soaps, and after, Cook has been focusing on his behind the scenes roles and passion as writer and a director of feature films.

Last week, the Michael Fairman Channel welcomed Jason, along with two of the stars of his latest film, Four for Fun, Brytni Sarpy (Elena, Y&R) and Jacob Young (ex-AMC, B&B, GH). During the conversation, Cook revealed his continued admiration for the soap medium and the actors who work in it, and how it came to pass that he landed his parts on Days of our Lives, and then on General Hospital.

Photo: JPI

Cook spoke on becoming the on-screen son of soap opera’s most iconic couples, Bo and Hope: “I auditioned for Fran Bascom. She was the Days of our Lives casting director at the time. I was never a great auditioner, I don’t think. She made me feel really comfortable. I remember that screen test. And then, I remember when I got the part, I was actually working at a company at a desk job. I got the call at work and I just screamed, and at the time I didn’t quit my job. But then, I got that contract when I was 19-years-old and it totally changed my life.”

Photo: JPI

But, was Jason aware how key to the show being Bo and Hope’s son would be? “Yeah, my older sister was a fan of the show. She definitely let me know that I better not mess it up, because I was gonna ruin her favorite couple,” he shared. “I remember she printed out the family tree and it looked like a physics diagram. It was so complicated. A lot of detailed work went into it. But, I was excited.”

After being a known entity with a large fan following, eventually Cook made his way to a new role on General Hospital. Jason explained, “GH was fun. That was a situation where Brian Frons (ex-ABC Daytime President) brought me over there. I just told him I didn’t want to be like or want to do Shawn. He’s like, ‘Well, what do you wanna do?’ I said, ‘How can I screw things up around here and shake things up?'”

Photo: JPI

From that conversation things began to formulate. Cook revealed, “We started talking about the TV series House. I think in soaps, there’s an assumption if you’re going on a show that everybody wants to be the hero. I was like, ‘I don’t want to (be). I want to screw everything up.’ And then, they wrote it in that Matt Hunter burns the hospital down within like six months. I was like really proud about that. The other part that I loved about that character is that Matt, and his older brother Patrick (Jason Thompson), were both neurosurgeons. And if you (an actor) resigned your contract (with the show) you go to Patrick, you see Patrick. And if you don’t resign your contract, you see my character, because my character was going to kill you every time.”

For more on the interview, make sure to check out the replay of the livestream conversation below with Jason, Brytni Sarpy and Jacob Young.  Now let us know, did you enjoy Jason as Shawn-D and Matt on GH? Do you hope someday he might return on-screen to the soaps? Let us know in the comment section.

THIS WEEK on GENERAL HOSPITAL: “He’s Back” as Jason Returns; Sonny Sets His Trap for the Shooter

Monday, March 4th is the highly-anticipated return of Steve Burton as Jason Morgan on ABC’s General Hospital. In the newly-released weekly promo for the series, in the final moments of it, you see a man with his hands-up about to turn around which looks like it will be revealed to be Sonny’s former hitman.

In the promo, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna), Anna (Finola Hughes), Spinell (Bradford Anderon) and others are intercut looking shocked at who they find on the pier with voice-overs of characters saying, “It can’t be”, “It’s him,” etc.

The story has been building as to who has been behind the shootings seemingly targeting Sonny (Maurice Benard), Selina (Lydia Look) and others related to the mob. When they locate Jason … is he the Jason we knew prior to the tunnel collapsing him towards the end of 2021, where he was believed to have perished? How is this all connected to the intel that Olivia Jerome was apparently killed in prison?

Meanwhile, Carly (Laura Wright) and Drew’s (Cameron Mathison) relationship has shown its cracks. When Carly eventually sees Jason, will it eventually pit brother against brother for the love of Carly? And in this case, is Drew going to be portrayed as the bad guy due to his issues since his time at Pentonville which has shown he has become more obsessed with revenge on Nina (Cynthia Watros)?
