REPORT: IS GH Favorite Steve Burton About To Have New Gig On The Young and the Restless?

Photo Credit: Steven Bergman

Big report from TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan the morning after Christmas has Daytime Emmy winner and recently exited star of General Hospital, Steve Burton (Ex-Jason Morgan) signing a new deal to play a role on The Young and the Restless!

To many that news may not come as a surprise since it would re-team Burton with long time GH executive producer (who now helms Y&R) Jill Farren Phelps.  In addition, it has been no secret that Phelps and Burton are business partners and even working on a telenovela project together.

As soapers know, Burton left General Hospital three months ago to move to Nashville to relocate his wife and children for a life away from Hollywood and to become involved in new endeavors.   Now with this news of an impending arrival of Burton to Genoa City so soon after his departure from GH, it begs the question, was this plan in the works for awhile?

According to TVG, the report of Burton to Y&R is unconfirmed by CBS at this time. Whatever the case, if Burton is back on-screen on The Young and the Restless, who would you want him to play?  Weigh-in and let us know what you think of a decision by Burton to play a brand new part on the number one soap, as opposed to returning to GH?

Everbody I apolgize because I bought the story that he wanted to move his family out of LA. I guess you guys were right it was ego all along! More then likely he is the past love interest of Avery. Bye Bye Joshua Morrow & Michel Muhney’s air time.

Me too. I bought it hook, line and sinker. But won’t watch Y&R, never liked it, never will. Disappointed he lied about it if its true. Tsk, tsk. Sam move on with John !!!

He will sink just like Genie Francis did once you are associated with a character as long as they both were thru no fault of their own no one accepts you as anyone else.

I totally agree that Steve Burton is slapping GH in the face and the fans! I feel like he is helping trying to get it cancelled! He left for Y&R and wasn’t man enough to tell the truth , wonder what his friends over at GH think?

I agree, it feels like a slap in the face to GH fans. We were made to believe he was moving for his family so they could live the quiet life. If he’s moving to YR he’ll still be away from his family. I’m very disappointed and hurt.

Agreed. Feel like we’ve been played for fools. I won’t watch Y&R. Tried for a few years ago and never cared for it. Besides GH is just too good, even without him. It goes on with great s/l’s even though Jason and Sam are over. Maybe she can move on with John after all.

Yup, since his secret leaked out for all the world to see, we now know that the TN story was NOT the reason he was quitting GH. It had nothing whatsoever to do with it. Misleading interview in SID/October. He’ll work in LA for Y&R but won’t work in LA for GH? Not happy. You mean he couldn’t at least wait until April and be on for the 50th? No chance of that now.

This is like the ultimate betrayal. We have stuck with him through all the years. He would have been nothing without the General Hospital Fans, I am very disappointed in him.

Oh I am just laughing my butt off over this! What a crock. How can he possibly go to Y and R? Please dear lord don’t tell me they are going to bring that stupid mob crap here. He can’t play anything but that. They had better stock up on black tee shirts!

I guess you don’t consider poor Diane Jenkins getting her skull bashed in by Nikki brutal? Nor Ricky drowning his fiancee or trying to slash Eden’s throat. What about Sharon being raped by Matt? Or Lauren being buried alive? The stripper chick getting her face burned? Or what Kevin did to poor Colleen? What about April Stevens getting beaten by her husband? Or Nikki having to kill her own father who was trying to rape her? My point- violence against women isn’t just the domain of one writer or producer- it has been a constant theme in this soap and… Read more »

I never said their was not violence before JFP just saying she does have a blood thirst for it ok chill I have not liked the stories since Bil Bell quit being the mastermind behind it and he made mistakes but he knew his characters!

Mary SF
Guest
Mary SF

I wasn’t upset. I just thought it a bit unfair to attack JFP’s character and call her perverted just because she has written story lines with violence in them, when so many other writers have done the same, including Bill Bell Sr. and those writers personal character were never attacked based on the stories they wrote. IMO, and the point I was trying to relay was her story lines may or may not reflect the kind of person she is, but her actions, such as firing long time employees before the holidays does.

Mary here again- as a long time viewer and fan of AW it bothered me that I couldn’t remember anything about Frankie’s death, so yesterday I went on YouTube and watched the clip to refresh my memory; I think it must have aired when I missed a number of shows due to an illness and death in my family because I would have remembered scenes like that. But you were right, they showed far more detail than needed to make their point, but no one could say watching those scenes were like watching paint dry. It is a sad reality… Read more »

Mary I am still upset with her because of the brutal attack on Frankie Frame on Another World it was really awful and then the rape of Eden on Santa Barbara I just find it a little odd that is her choices.

I’ll be VERY disappointed if Steve shows up on TY&R!! I doubt many other fans will appreciate it either. Instead of loving him at General Hospital, it now feels like he’s a traitor. 🙂

If Steve Burton comes back on my television screen – then I want to see him as JASON MORGAN QUARTERMAINE!
There was no reason for him to lie to all the fans if he really just wanted to work with JFP again on another show. I would not have liked to hear it – but I would have respected him. Now, maybe not so much…

i agree so disappointed in steve if this is true, he will never workout at y&r

prime example genie francis, she was a waste of air time on y & r i love her but she needs to face it she will always be laura from gh and steve burton will always be JASON from GH!!!

As a huge Steve Burton fan, I will be extremely
Dissappointed if this is true!! Means he
Was not truthful about his exit from GH.IMO
Thought he wanted time away and with
his family which was understandable.
Hope this is not true.Huge fan but
won’t watch other soaps..

I don’t think we need him on Y&R. It is insulting to GH fans that he said he wanted to move to Nashville and now looks like he’ll be back in LA. Did this just come up or was it in the works all along?

he has no loyalty….

I say make Sam Mcall a mother again with John Mcbain baby….

Daniel+Liam and another child

Tali Smith

Hell no to that idea!! John McBain will have another child, but it will be with Natalie whenever she comes to GH!! She’ll bring with her a little red headed girl when she and Liam resurface!! Sam McCall can find someone else.

mcbam
Guest
mcbam

Tali..RC and FV write what they want!!!

again Sam and John will be the #1 couple…watch and see

and if Melissa Archer comes back she will be in a triangle with

Michael Easton and Kelly Monaco

but if she don’t Sam can have baby with John Mcbain!

and Liam will be calling Sam Mommy…ha ha!

but you never no! it might be Val….I seen them at a

New York vs Chicago…..

I Hope she get pregant and they use the pregancey in the

storyline….that’s my wish!

Listen, I was biggest JasamFan but we know now…what Steve Burton

intensions are..

I say no more babies – not like they do much on the show once the character has them. No more OLTLers either – I have no desire to see Natalie. They need to somehow get Sam & John to spend more time together or that spark will go away for good. Too many characters on GH and these two have taken a backseat so it’s time they take center stage again.

I want John with Natalie ultimately but in the mean time bring on Natalie and put her with Johnny to make John jealous NOW that would be fun! Sam can be friends witrh John or a passing fancy Natalie is his fiery redhead.

If he would have been truthfull from the start of this, “I’m moving on” , etc. maybe fans would have understood that he’s looking for new challenges, but NO, he had to stick the TN sob story into it. It was uncalled for and hes the one that mishandled the whole thing and now fans are talking and he’s completely silent to his followers on Twitter.

This sucks! Is Phelps that pissed that GH is doing to well without her? As for Steve Burton I am no longer a fan if he lied to us the way he did. Wow what a freaking slap in the face to his fans. No one should start watching Y&R for him. He’s definitely not worth it. Nashville yeah right.

It is called ego. He cannot handle the fact that FV and RC spread the story all over the canvas and NOT just on a couple. GH has not been this great in years, and this is from someone who celebrates 50 yrs on April1. SB stands behind is faith, and yet he does this. Like the saying goes actions speak louder than words. FINALLY, Genie Francis can come back as Laura and get the respect and story that a vet deserves. I said the day that Phelps was announced at YR that Genie’s days were numbered at YR. I… Read more »

Yes, Jill gave him the perks he wanted and couldn’t get from FV. How about: a nice paycheck, control over his character, lots of vaca time for Port Chuck, the amount of taping days he likes, NO love scenes and probably no shirt removal either. I feel this deal was in the works when his contract was coming up for renewal.

I think it was pretty crappy for Steve B. to tell all the GH fans he was departing to move his family out of LA and then a mere 3 months later to take a job inLA!!! And with his good buddyJFP…sounds a bit fishy to me….bet this was all planned when he left GH!
Feels like a slap in the face to all of us GH and Jason fans. Makes me sad…

Tells you just how important his “money” is to him. If the fans do not like a character, eventually, the character meets an untimely end. And all the people that have been “a fool” over him, the way I, to this day, am over Tony Geary, should be very po’ed. I made the comment on the day he announced with “regret” that he was leaving to move his family, that he was leaving to go to YR.

Fine with me! Y&R can have him. I’ve seen Muppets deliver performances with greater emotional range than Steve Burton, and Y&R is like watching paint dry, especially compared to GH these days where they treat every day like it’s “cliffhanger Friday.”

If this story is true, I don’t have much respect for Steve Burton. I thought moving his family to Nashville to experience a new life and do other projects there, despite his love for GH was noble and a brave thing to do. If he joins Y&R, despite his friendship with Jill, the reason he left GH makes no sense now because he’ll be back in LA. Perhaps he’ll be commuting, but if that’s the case, why couldn’t he commute for GH? Something’s rotten in Denmark here!

Steve made a big error in using his TN sob story as an excuse to QUIT GH. He wouldn’t work in LA for GH, but will work in LA for Y&R? I guess he thought his fans were a bunch of dummys since alot of them fell for Monavie, The 90 Day Challenge, etc.

Everybody was praising Steve for his integrity. If he does move to Y&R, it just proves what a fake he is. All of his personal appearances weren’t just to meet his fans, it was to collect the paycheck. Then he decides to move his whole family to Nashville because of demons that parade around LA. If I was huge fan of Y&R, I’d be mighty upset that Phelps is continuing to hire her peeps. I’ve actually been watching a little bit of YR and fall asleep everytime Avery and Nick are on. Typical Phelps, YR is leaning towards mega dark… Read more »

Wow… people! I am a huge Steve Burton fan… and I love the Jason Morgan/Quartermaine character and would so like to see him return to my fave GH as either Morgan or Quartermaine!!!

However… being his fan first… I am happy for Steve… that he gets a chance to play a new character and have a better work and living situation… assuming such.

Steve would love to have you back at GH… but am happy you have work and hopefully get to stay based in TN. I will miss you and if it’s true it’s Y&R’s gain!!!

Oh, and this is on top of that fact that GH is celebrating being on the air for 50 years in April 2013. I guess Steve doesn’t care about that. What an ego this guy has. I wonder if he’s upset that GH fired buddy/fellow bandmate Scott Reeves. Reading this ‘news story’ really and truly ticked me off. Of course, Steve has the right to do what he wants but I will never buy into anything he says or stands for ever again.

As a Y&R viewer, this news does NOT thrill me. I tolerated him on GH (barely) and was happy to see him leave. The show is soooooo much better without him and his insufferable Jason character. I just hope that Sony takes a firm hand and doesn’t allow JFP to make him the show’s “star” (UGH). The Y&R audience (not to mention its vets) will not be pleased.

Wow! SO much Steve Burton negativity/hate going on here! I don’t see this as a “slap in the face” to his fans at all! I am a Steve Burton fan first; a GH fan second, so, if this “rumor” of him going to Y&R is true, I’m excited/happy for him & will support his decision all the way! He & JFP work(ed) well together! It simply sounds to me like JFP/Y&R were willing/able to offer him the “best of both worlds” that GH was not willing to negotiate; a role & contract that will allow him to “commute” from his… Read more »

I don’t think his going to another show is a slap in the face to GH fans, per se. I think his basic dishonesty about why he was leaving GH (assuming this story proves to be true) IS something people have a right to be upset about, and I think it does call his integrity into question. It’s a business, and people want to work for bosses they like and bosses whom they feel appreciate them; I think we all understand that. It’s possible he was just trying to be diplomatic about his reasons for leaving GH, but unfortunately people… Read more »

I wonder what is Kelly Monaco opinion?

Is she giddy with happiness or a little bit peeved?

I’ve seen her newest picture with Val 12/23/12

I say when is she become a brand new Mother?

Her and Val was at the New York Knicks and Chicago game….

Hum……I wonder when they gonna have a baby?

I started watching GH after he left, so I don’t know much about him. However, I do know actors often give reasons for leaving a show that might not have anything to do with the true reason for their leaving. He might have just been sick and tired of playing the same character day in and day out for x amount of years. He wouldn’t say that in public but it is a possibility or he did move for his family, but is doing a favor for a friend- and this character is a short term one. As a Y&R… Read more »

I guess only time will tell if it is true. Personally, if Steve Burton goes back to soaps, I would vote his return to GH, as I miss Steve/Jason’s presence. Although, if he does go to Y & R, maybe it is just to have a steady gig, while he is working on his other ventures, and possibly JFP, is making that opportunity available to him, since they are working on other projects together. At this point, we can all just speculate, time will tell . . . Happy Holidays to All !!!

JFP is clearly out of the loop. Steve Burton will not work on Y&R. I like Steve but the chemistry will not work for that show. It does not take a brain surgeon to figure that out. It is unbelievable this woman gets paid to do this work. She brought GH down and she will bring Y&R down. I feel sorry for the fans of Y&R. This woman has tunnel vision. Too bad for Steve. He left a solid position to follow this limited vision woman.

On the other hand, if she is there to tank the show, which some have suggested, then she will be doing what she is paid to do.

Fans have different expectations from actors on soaps, now if Steve Burton got a tv gig on primetime then you would hear a more supportive response but with actors especially if their popular like Steve is on GH then the loyalty is to the show n character . It does hurt when a popular actor leaves for a competing show. They are probably asking why is he more loyal to jfp then GH ?

I understand the fans’ upset. He said he was leaving GH to move to Nashville. If he had said he was leaving because he wanted a job change or was tired of playing the character, there wouldn’t have been this much upset. But to say, I’m leaving GH to move and then to appearing to take a job on a competing show understandably causes anger. Fans think he lied to them. Hopefully he will make a statement if he is going to Y&R. Maybe he can spin that it was just too good a deal to give up or maybe… Read more »

Steve Burton, not……! Robert Redford, hell even John Stamos is better than Steve Burton!

Burton knows how beloved his character on GH is; if he returns to tv after telling his fans he left to move his family away and does not return to GH, that is certainly his prerogative, but I will no longer be a fan of his. I will not watch anything he is in – including the number one rated soap.

Why couldn’t he have been honest about the whole thing?? We wouldn’t have liked it anyway but it would have been nice if he told the truth…,To me that is being two-faced..
Talking at both ends of his mouth. I bet he knew all along what he was going to do. He didn’t have to be so secretative about it. The truth alway’s comes out, one way or another…………

Damn! Y&R must really be in trouble if he’s coming to the show.

If it’s true, it stinks that he said he was leaving the show to stay in TN, however, had he said he wanted to stretch his acting muscles – then I could understand wanting to take on another role; it’s what actors do.

Just be honest about it though, ya know?

I totally support Steve moving on from GH. The writers made Jason Morgan so one dimensional. Steve can act. He’s done projects outside of GH that have allowed him to showcase his true ability. I was so hoping Jason M. would hit his head and turn back into Jason Quartermaine just so he could show some true emotion. If he wants to go to Y& R more power to him. He’s been locked into that boring monotonous role for way too long. I’ll watch him. I’m already a fan of their show. There are only four of them left. I… Read more »

BEST SOAP NEWS IN YEARS! I have been a huge Steve Burton fan since he first appeared on GH, but I quit watching GH shortly before his departure. The character of Jason Morgan died in Mexico years ago as far as I’m concerned, and that is when I started watching Y&R. I’m thrilled Steve is coming to the show. I hope he is playing a new character with a storyline worth his talent. GH had him in the worse pairing ever and it showed in his performance. I don’t feel betrayed, this is a business and he has a family… Read more »

Back when they fired and then rehired RH their were rumors Y&R was wooing her for a Mac recast so like I said on another thread if GH is not going to use her bring her on. I had a friend who will go nameless who is in the business and said all soaps are dark during the Holidays as we all know so this may be nothing more then gossip about SB! That being said I could see him doing this role of the war vet from Avery’s past.

If Steve Burton is unavailable and the GH production team feels a need to bring back the Jason Morgan character, they should feel free to recast the role. After all, how hard can it be to find a musclebound cipher in Los Angeles? Just go to The Abbey any weekend night.

Can somebody please hand me a sleeping tablet and wake me up when all this fuss is over. If he ends up on Y&R, so be it. The shame will be that most people won’t believe anything else he ever has to say. It won’t matter what the circomstances are. As for me, I wish him well whatever he does, but I won’t be following him to Y&R. My loyalities are with GH. Now please excuse me, I’m going to sleep. Yawn.

This is not a surprise on any level. SB’s statement about his reasons for leaving GH were transparent to begin with. And we shouldn’t forget that this is the same guy who sold fans on a power drink pyramide scheme not all that long ago, so him lying to the fans is nothing new. But even without that, so often actors aren’t allowed to state the “truth”, whatever it may be, when exiting a show or network if they want to work there some time in the future. Y&R is rapidly circling the drain, and hiring JFP to repair the… Read more »

Hate to say I told you so, but….called this one before he left GH. Y&R can have him and hopefully in his new role he’ll show some interest. I like Y&R too, so I wish everyone the best. But Mr. Burton, you sir, treated your devoted fans like something you scraped off the bottom of your shoe and they deserved better. Liar. Or worse yet FOJ (Friends of Jill).
