The big announcement that fans were expecting came this afternoon on CBS’s hit daytime talk show, The Talk, when General Hospital favorite Steve Burton confirmed that he will indeed be playing Avery’s Ex, war hero, Dylan McAvoy on The Young and the Restless!

During the conversation with the ladies of the The Talk, Burton revealed that the deal to come to CBS Daytime was hard to pass up once it was arranged that Steve could back and forth to be with his family now relocated in Nashville, Tennessee, something Burton did when he departed his role as Jason Morgan on General Hospital.

In addition, Steve mentioned that he, Y&R executive producer, Jill Farren Phelps, and film star and frequent soap star guest, James Franco are working on a telenovela and are in talks with Sony Television.   Of course, Sony owns The Young and the Restless!

When discussing his new character of Dylan, Burton revealed Dylan is an war veteran who did two tours of the Middle East. By trade he is an architect and he has to take over the family construction business because his father sustains a serious injury.    Burton says he is trying to grasp how Dylan will deal with his demons from the war, and that he knows his new character has a bunch of secrets, and he is coming to town looking for somebody special.

Burton’s first airdate on Y&R will be January 29th!  After the jump, watch went down on The Talk this afternoon when the ladies of the panel: Sara Gilbert, Sheryl Underwood, Aisha Tyler, Sharon Osbourne and Julie Chen welcomed Steve Burton to CBS Daytime!  Then let us know what you thought of Steve’s comments and his decision to join Y&R, and if you are intrigued by his new character of Dylan McAvoy?

If he is happy and about this decision, then that is great. If he is Jill Farren Phelps little puppy dog, then screw him. When Jill gets the ax, Steve will either leave and or get the ax. And General Hospital should tell him “Not Interested, Goodbye”

I don’t walk in his shoes………but I think he should have been honest to his fans of all these years………I don’t watch Y & R……..and I doubt I’ll tune in because of him.. In my eyes, he is still Jason.

he was honest … he did what he said he wanted to do and was going to do…
so what if he wants/decided to have a different job. and to leave Jason behind, good move on his part…
good luck to Steve!!

I am actually impressed. I don’t watch “The Talk” but I do watch Y&R and sometimes B&B. The treatment he received was so welcoming, to say the least. He seems to have genuine energy and excitement about his projects. And he wasn’t wearing a Black T-shirt! He looked great and presented his projects with great enthusiasm. I am going to be positive for Y&R and its fans, and continue to enjoy GH without him. Lots of excitement in the soap world today! YEAH!

I actually agree with you. People say “The Talk” is just “The View 2.0”, but for the 4 or 5 times I’ve watched, it’s really a much friendlier, less volatile environment than the ABC competition. They treat every guest the same, CBS affiliated or not. They brought out the confetti, a banner and even mentioned GH and his long history there. The View never even mentions other networks when their stars show up, they always say “…check your local listings”.

He seems really excited, so I’m happy for him. I was never a fan of Jason or Steve’s so his leaving GH left no ill-will from me, and his move to YR certainly hasn’t made me dislike him any more (though “dislike” may be the wrong word….I NEVER “disliked” him as a person). I don’t think this role will become his defining role or that he’ll last nearly as long as he was on GH for, but for whatever this part amounts to, good luck and all the best!

I am happy for Steve! I will watch him on Y&R. I wish that he were coming back to my fave GH… but it sounds like he has a great deal and in this economy… that’s HUGE!

Elhu

I agree Heidi. I am very happy for Steve too, as he seems so excited about all of the things he is working on, including going to Y & R. I too, would prefer he go back to GH, but it is his choice, and from what he said today, it certainly sounds like they offered him all the perks he wanted, so good for him (and you are absolutely correct Heidi, in this economy, that is an even bigger get)!!! I believe he has young children, that I am sure he is so happy to be able to spend more quality time with (as well as his wife, of course), while they are in the Tennesse environment he and his wife wanted. It is great that he will still be part of Port Chuck with some of his GH friends, and I know it could not have been easy to let go of something you have been a major part of for 21 years, so I am sure he did not make the decision to leave GH lightly. I am not a Y & R fan, but I will certainly be tuning in to see him, so I say, I would rather see him somewhere, then not at all. I miss your presence on GH Steve, but I wish you much good luck with all of your pending projects, as well as your new role on Y & R, and I look forward to seeing you bring another character to life.

I think he is actually going to be a new love interest for Sharon Case even though he is Avery’s ex at least I hope so, it is time for Sharon to move on from the Newmans. I think also he has a job in politics if this falls apart. He knows how to really dodge the questions. Lol! Word of warning SB do not admire people too much as you do JFP they will dissapoint you.

MBmomof3

Great post. Also, I agree Sharon needs a new man in her life.

Iakovos
Iakovos

Sharon Newman needs to find herself and establish a new path for her life AND THEN she can become romantically involved. To watch this fine actress work a storyline about her rise from the ashes and coping with a very real mental illness ON HER OWN would be an inspiring plot and give much needed redemption and stengthening of a very damaged character. I want to see her reach out to others and serve instead of being a victim needing saved.

MBmomof3
MBmomof3

Well stated, Iakovos. I would love to see THAT story for Sharon.

I would love to see him with Phyliss…..her sister Avery is with Nick now….that would be a great storyline to have her be with Avery’s ex.

I can understand Steve’s decision to try acting another character. Playing a one dimensional mob character would get tiring rather quickly. Good Luck on your new acting endeavor, Steve.

GH is doing well without Steve and his departure has actually freed up screen time for others as although I liked Steve on GH…I thought JFP overutilized him and some others.

Karen

I completely agree with you, Michael S! His departure also allowed the return of Sean Kanaan as AJ which has re-energized the Quartermaine clan and given Michael new depth.

I think someone should have hosed down Sheryl- I felt uncomfortable for SB when she straddled him like a horse. I might have misunderstood what I heard, but based on his body language I got the impressed Sony strong armed this guy into doing Y&R in order to have his night time project go on. He did not look thrilled at all- he seemed to be trying too hard to be excited. I know so many GH fans think he went behind their backs, planning this all along, but based on what I saw today, more than ever I believe he is pimping himself out to TPTB at Sony, so his other project might see daylight. Or maybe his friend JFP pimped him out, but he does not sound or look like a man happy to be back on a soap.

Christine
Christine

That’s an intriguing thought, Mary SF. I didn’t get that feeling, so I watched the intro again. I think he might be uncomfortable, if at all, because of all that estrogen! Ha! Ha! Maybe he wasn’t really prepared for this junket.

I agree with you about Sheryl, though. It’s funny because of the behind-the-scenes feud with Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete getting fired because they were considered “too ghetto.” Sheryl acts too childish, but to each their own. 🙂

Maybe Steve was bored. I remember the rumors were flying the minute he wrapped at GH about him going to Y&R, but to me, it sounds like he put feelers out just recently. Then again, anything is possible and he could have been strong-armed into it. I just think he probably has a really huge paycheck and I don’t see him being strong-armed to fill a role. Then on the other hand, maybe they are expecting big ratings by his signing. It almost sounds like Major League Baseball. I guess it all looks good on paper (all the big names they have on Y&R).

Mary SF
Mary SF

Perhaps strong arm wasn’t the word- but I think he does want to do other things like produce, and doing a favor for the people who are thinking of helping you develop a project is just common sense. A little you scratch my back I’ll scratch yours is a possibility. Like I said I may have misunderstood and I don’t know him well, he might hate press gigs, but he didn’t look like a man who just got the job he was dying to get.

heidi
heidi

Thank you for saying it Mary SF… I was thinking… but decided not too. If Steve was uncomfortable about anything it was Sheryl jumping on him and generally attacking him! He could have been hurt… she is like a Volkswagon beetle jumping him… someone should have restrained her! He has seen crazy in fans before but to expect that a co-host would behave the same way was very unsettling! He’s been… as he said sitting on his porch in rural TN and then to go and have her behave like a looney would have made any sane person uncomfortable!!! CBS Talk restrain that person or take her off the segment… she provided no value!

Eve

I’m with you Mary SF re., Sheryl jumping on him. That was beyond SO inappropriate to do to a marrier man with 2 small children. I’m sure they were watching or will be. She is no small girl either and Steve is not a big man. I thought he was very gracious in the way he handled it. I like Sheryl, but that was SO wrong.

I’m really happy for Steve. I can’t imagine as an actor playing the same character for 21 years and going to the same job. He’s a man on the move with a good head on his shoulders. I can’t wait to see what he does next, in addition to Y&R. As a man of faith, I’m hoping he’ll produce something worth watching, since we are lacking in the arena.

If that is what he wants, then good for him. But, it seems like. he lied to his GH fans

Once i Heard that steve was going to y&r I figured they made him an offer that he could not refuse – if he can be on y&r and still have the time he wants with his familky in tennesse I am so happy for him

Ive just finished watching the Talk clip w SB re the Y&R role he will be portraying etc. Then I proceeded to read all of the comments made about Steve Burton here. I was surprised to learn that Steve is going back to soasps so soon, because per his statements re his departure from Gh he was leaving to spend quality time with raise his family in Tenn.esse out the Hollywood environment and to concentrate on his other business endeavors ie his restaurant et al. I remember being surprised when the move was announced because I had figured that the steady paycheck to support a wife and child was what lured him back to GH to begin with, as it does many popular soap actors who leave for larger horizons , don’t get much work, then come back to soaps where they can re-up from the steady salary they garner. My first thought about SB going to Y&R was like half of the fans who commented that his statement about why he was leaving GH wasn’t exactly the truth. But then I looked at the whole thing a little more closely. He did mention his ongoing relationship w JFP and that she was going to be involved in a few other projects namely one with James Franco. I think it is wise to have a back-up plan anytime you take a risk in whatever your endeavors , plans, or goals are.-most successful people do. I have been watching all of the ABC soaps because of my Mother since 1969. I think they were all single-handedly destroyed by one head writer in particular by the name of Megan McTavish. What had set Ryans Hope, Loving, AMC, OLTL, and Gh (there was another short lived with Susan Sarandon) were the concentration on characterr, families and integrity to all within excellent storylines. I’v e continued to watch GH because of my loyalty to ABC soaps, but have to say that I have never liked it revollving around gangsters. The first glimpse we had of action other than the hospital setting was Luke involved in shady business and the whole Frank Smith saga. That was the advent of bad-boy with good heart, super couples and location shots (i think amc was first with location shots , maybe not) Stever Burton was great as Jason Q and Jason Morgan. I believe his character was stunted at the end of his run. Had the writers made his memory come back to beingJason Q, after Patrick performed his brain surgery, there would have been new life for the character. I think Steve did the best he could with the material he got, and how he was directed to perform it. And I believe he left for greener pastures, while he still can. Do I think going to Y&R is kind of a slap in the face to his loyal fans? Perhaps to GH fans, but not necessarily to SB fans should be thrilled that they will be… Read more »

To those of have said he was lying about his plans when he left GH, why would he? Maybe ABC wouldn’t give him the appealing deal that CBS/SONY did. And also 21 years is a whale of a long time in one role. Happy times on TY&TR Steve!

Angela
Angela

I really think that Frank Valentini and GH would have given him the same deal he got over at Y&R. Some people felt he was pissed because every story line wasn’t about him any longer. I thought that was ridiculous when I first heard it. Now, I’m not so sure. What I do know is he slapped his fans in face by not being honest. So much for being with his family etc., etc.. Me personally I say to Cartini time to find the body and let Sam move on with John already. As for Steve B you lost me as a fan today.

Waltina Harris
Waltina Harris

I think for some fans this betrayal feeling is more about Sam and Jason not getting the happy family their fans craved for for years. Fan thought that once their was a baby they would be together forever, even being happy little beautiful JAKE was killed off so Sam could have Jason’s baby. Now some fans are acting as thou Steve left own purpose to hurt them. He has the right to seek employment somewhere else, as do other citizens in this country. It’s done everyday. True fans would wish him the best of luck and move own. He honored his contract to General Hospital, told his loyal fans good-bye, said goodbye to his castmates, and hello to his future. He doesn’t owe the fans anything, and I think he was honest.
One sad part about fans we think the actor/actresses on these shows owe us something because we look at them everyday. That we should know their plans for their future and if we don’t agree, then you have betrayed us the fans, and less not forget you can’t leave because of being part of a couple on a Soap Opera we like.
People this is Steve Burton not Jason Morgan a character on a SOAP.

Angela
Angela

Waltina I agree with you 100%. An actor is free to go on and do whatever he/she wishes. I may not have explained myself. What irks me is I read quite a few interviews with Steve B before he left in which he discussed all his reasons for leaving. The main ones being he wanted time off to be with his family AND he was looking forward to a new life in Nashville. Why go to all the trouble of repeating yourself interview after interview saying these things if what you are really in search of is a change, or the desire to work with JFP again? He knew that this would not sit well with his fans or he would have been honest. I just feel after 20 years in the role of Jason he could have been more honest.

Do you guys think it was a bit tacky that it was announced whike GH was on? I wish him well but I really would like to see him recast on GH sometime in the future.

Scott
Scott

How is that tacky? The Talk is a major platform now for CBS Daytime stars to come on. And it’s timeslot is where ATWT used to be. I’m sure he didn’t think about the timeslot, nor did he care.

Joel
Joel

He didn’t specifically state that he and GH discussed him being able to communte back and forth from Nashville to Tennessee. He just said he wasn’t able to do that before, but didn’t elaborate. I wonder if that was actually discussed. If he thought he could do that with GH, why not negotiate it? Just because he’s friends with Jill Farren-Phelps isn’t a good enough reason to accept her offer and betray his GH family and the fans by jumping ship. If Jill offered him something that wasn’t discussed yet at GH, he should’ve told her, “let me see if GH can match your offer”. If they wouldn’t, then okay, by all means go to “Y&R”, but I can’t believe someone as popular as he was on the show, that they wouldn’t do it. He just seemed so upset to leave GH, and if he could have both GH and a family life outside of LA, he would do it, but instead he’s now picked Y&R. Just doesn’t sit well with me. There goes any hope of Jason being found alive for GH’s 50th anniversary.

Nikki

Superb! Another new character, just what Y&R needs *rolls eyes*. Watch him come crawling back to GH when CBS wises up and axes JFP, just like ABC did.

I agree with scott, jill is leading y&r on the right path. Maria bell ruin characters and has some worst writing I ever seen.

Nikki
Nikki

“Saved”? Really? I agree with CR, that Maria Arena Bell was horrific, but Jill Farren Phelps is hardly a soap savior. It’s been a few months and all she has seemed to do is fire actors that people loved and bring on new people who are unneccesary and unfamilar to viewers. She should have adapted Frank Valentini’s approach by bringing back beloved characters, putting vets front and center, while integrating the younger set gradually. Instead, Nick is on a non-stop cooking show with Avery, Sharon seems to be completely healed of her “bipolar” (which is very disconcerting that Jill, who worked with Maurice Bernard for so many years, would even look at Josh Griffith’s scripts and find them to be OK), Kevin and Chloe are in a ridiculous storyline with nuNoah, Fen is now Ricky 2.0, Neil is in another insta-relationship, and Nikki is back to being Victor’s lapdog. It’s nothing new, it’s nothing interesting, and it’s the same reason Guiding Light, General Hospital, and other soap opera fans could not stand this woman as an executive producer (not to say it is all her fault considering JG is the headwriter). The only storyline worth watching is Jack Abbott’s pill addiction and the only reason that is even appealing is because of Peter Bergman’s incredible acting abilities (as well as Michelle Stafford’s).

I find it funny this issue of Mr. Burton’s employment is such an emotional hotpoint for fans. I find more offense to referring to THE TALK as a “hit.” Ugh! Yes, the show seems to promote daytime but CBS dropped the ball when it axed AS THE WORLD TURNS and GUIDING LIGHT. That is difficult for me to forgive yet.

I know did not fired him, but they did not go out way to stop him from leaving either. Yes new viewers must take note, that jason morgan was a popular character on gh. Whether my opinion or yours, he still a popular soap actor.

By the way lose and fired are two different things. Lose in the soap world: they left over contract dispute, etc. Fired means they terminate their contract or wrote off

Betty

So which is it Steve? You quit for the family time or not. In your interview with SID/October your quote: My choosing to leave was completely my own decision. IT HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH ANYTHING ELSE. IT WASN’T A MONEY ISSUE OR A SCHEDULING ISSUE. IT WAS JUST THAT THE DOOR FINALLY OPENED FOR ME TO MOVE MY FAMILY TO TN AND WE WENT THROUGH THE OPEN DOOR. IT WAS AS SIMPLE AS THAT”

On The Talk you claim Jill gave you the best of both worlds. (more time with family). I thought “scheduling” wasnt the reason you left? So which is it?

Family time and moving to TN had nothing to do with you leaving. Your mind was alrready made up the minute Jill went to Y&R. You were outta there. Even if GH HAD given you a good deal (and maybe they did) , you would not have stayed anyway. You did not like working for FV. Plain and simple.

And this more family time stuff? It sure sounds good to the GH fans. The reason tugs at their hearts. How can you complain about that. But in reality, here’s what I see:

You have the gig at Y&R working in LA (far, far away from TN and family)

You have the gig with Jill/Franco working in LA with YOU producing and starring in (far, far away from TN and family)

And you have Port Chuck. You touring around the country (using your DARK/VACA days to do this instead of staying home with the wife and kids if they were so important to you. You don’t need the money.

My advise to you, don’t go on anymore talk shows trying to explain yourself. Fans aren’t stupid they know the score. Oh wait…..maybe some are stupid, like the ones who bought your Monavie, the 90 day challenge, spend $250 to see Port Chuck?

k/kay
k/kay

Hey Betty why do you think I said he has a career in politics! Lol!

k/kay
k/kay

Also if it is important enough to everybody look at the timeline JFP get’s the post at Y&R July 2012 in August 2012 SB announces he is leaving GH! I wonder how much back biting is going on over there we have a large number of male egos over there. Let the games begin!

Nikki
Nikki

Betty, this was a great post! I think that SB did not like that he was no longer front and center every single day and did not want to participate in the “ensemble” feel (which a good soap SHOULD be!) that GH has taken on. So he went with someone he knows will give him as much screen time as he wants. If it was about scheduling, it could have easily been worked out. Frank and Ron have done it for numerous GH actors, including Kimberly M. who left, just as SB had. For people to say that he doesn’t owe fans, General Hospital fans, an explanation is ridiculous. Yes, it is HIS decision, but he shouldn’t have said it was for his family. He should have said he wanted to pursue other projects, change up his profession a bit, or he could have said he simply wanted to go work with JFP more, if that was the reason. He should not have said it was a family oriented move when it clearly was not, as you pointed out. The only reason he is successful and had a steady job for over two decades was because of fans- the least he could do in return is show a little bit of respect by being honest.

Sandy
Sandy

First of all, how dare you tell him to stay at home with his famliy, you
know nothing about his life. And so what if he quit because he doesn’t like his boss, my god how dare he do that. SB has every right to go where ever he wants. By the way he didn’t lie, did you miss the part where he actaully moved. And calling people stupid because they
spend money to see Port Chuck is a rotten thing to do.

I’m glad that steve burton is coming to the young and the restless, gh lost is y&r gain, jill phelps is smart producer and josh griffith can write this wonderful actor a meaty tale. Look out genoa city, dylan is heading to town!

I love Jason Morgan! I doubt if I will like him on Y&R. Steve Burton will always be Jason Morgan. Now we know that Jason is gone, I hope GH replace Steve Burton, the character of Jason Morgan not on the show leaves a big void on the show!

Christy

i don’t care… i don’t watch Y&R. You know when Roger Howarth left OLTL years ago for some other soap, I watch him just a couple of times – just to see – and then that was that. I wasn’t into that other soap.

i won’t however watch Y&R just to see Steve… and really don’t care about any joint efforts with James Franco. Liked him on Spiderman, but eck! that jaunt on GH was horrible!

Where is ABC promoting their anytime schedule? The Way confetti flew was such a contrast to ABC who made no effort to promote even save AMC. And OLTL . There IS an audience for daytime, promote the shows at night people will TIVO and DVR good drama. Hat OLTL was cancelled STILL shocks me it was by far the best show on daytime, really on TV!

Good for Mr. Burton, going with a network who will appreachiate him. Best of luck, Mr. Burton! Go where you are embraced!

I really don”t care about Y&R I don’t watch the show. I just hope the TRUE GENERAL HOSPITAL fans continue to watch GH even if they do join the dark side. GH really should RECAST Jason. Just think back to all of the recast GH has had. Carly, Maxie, Nicholas, Michael, Kristiana, Morgan etc…I am sure the TRUE GENERAL HOSPITAL fans can help me out with that one.
By the way, Sheryl on The Talk,.. Really…..Get a grip….what you did was so not necessary…Really?

I can not believe that Steve Burton is going on to another soap opera. To me he is just a

I have lost all respect for him as an actor and will never watch the Young and the resless!!!!

Not intrigued. Frankly, I wish Avery would leave. She is so boring. She spends more time cooking than lawyering. The show has not overgone the great overhaul I hoped it would with new people at the helm. Some things have been fixed, others gone up in smoke. Literally. Show is still not that great and does not deserve to be number 1.
