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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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.

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

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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.

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… Read more »

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… 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!

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..

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.

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

“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… Read more »

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!

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.

Nikki
Guest

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… Read more »

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.

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!

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.

Well, he is an actor wanting to practice his craft and playing the same character for 20+ years, especially one as removed and stiff as Jason Morgan, probably got pretty boring. I think its an exciting time and can’t wait to see how he’s going to play this new character on Y&R.

Cameron Mathison Talks Strangest Shirtless Scenes, Favorite Susan Lucci Moment & More On ‘7 Questions With Steve & Brad’

On the latest installment of Steve Burton (Jason) and Bradford Anderson’s (Spinelli) You Tube series, 7 Questions with Steve and Brad, the General Hospital stars welcome the newest addition to their Port Charles family, Cameron Mathison.

Mathison is set to debut this summer back on ABC daytime in a role still under wraps, after previously playing All My Children’s Ryan Lavery and wrapping up his co-hosting gig on Hallmark Channel’s Home & Family.

Photo: StoneColdJackal

In the rapid fire sequence of questions from Burton and Anderson, Cameron fielded questions such as what was his strangest take-off-your-shirt moment in soaps, his favorite Susan Lucci moment (where in story, Ryan for a short time was romantically linked to Erica Kane), plus Mathison fessed up on his favorite hosting gig, if he bakes at home, and more.

Watch the enlightening and fun conversation here.

GH’s Rebecca Herbst Thanks Fans for the Birthday Love

She is not often on social media, but when she does show up, it delights so many of her enduring fans. General Hospital’s Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth), who yesterday celebrated her birthday on May 12th, took to Twitter to share warm ‘thank you’s’ to a few fan factions who sent her some lovely gifts in honor and support of their favorite soap star.

Herbst expressed: “Yesterday was such a beautiful day! THANK YOU for all your sweet Birthday messages! #Friz & #Liason showered me with the most gorgeous flowers, cakes & goodies. And #Friz donated $2500 to #SmileTrain.  I felt very loved. I’m so grateful for each & every one of you. …XO”

Of course, the Friz fans loved Liz with Franco (Roger Howarth) and the Liason fans are those who love Liz with Jason (Steve Burton).

Now with Roger Howarth returning to the show – in what is at this juncture still a mystery as who he will play – will Rebecca be paired with Roger in story again, or not this time?  Do you think Liz might end up romantically with Finn (Michael Easton), or is there still a chance that down the line Liz and Jason could get back together, or could Liz meet someone new? Only time will tell!

For now, Herbst was thankful for the money donated to the Smile Train charity and all the wonderful gifts and messages that came her way.

So, what did you think of Becky’s thank you message?  Who are you hoping Liz winds up with romantically in the future?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GENERAL HOSPITAL Touches on Racial Profiling, Social Injustice and Bias In Key Scenes with Portia and Jordan

This week ABC’s General Hospital took the opportunity to write in to their scripts and story, the issue that has been so prevalent in our country now and for decades that of racial profiling, injustice, bias, gender equality and more rolled into scenes featuring: Brook Kerr (Portia), Briana Nicole Henry (Jordan), Sydney Mikala (Trina) and William Lipton (Cameron).

When Portia comes to the boxing gym for a workout and comes upon Jordan hitting the boxing bag hard over the the incident with Cameron in the hospital garage, it spurs a greater conversation.

Jordan tells Portia about the situation that arose with Cameron and a gun, and Portia says she heard about it.  Jordan knows if Cameron’s skin was a different color, she may not have been able to de-escalate the situation and talk her officers down, if she had not arrived on the scene in the nick of time.

This launches the two women into an important conversation on racial profiling, social injustice, white privilege and gender bias that they have found themselves dealing with in their professions (Portia is a doctor and Jordan the police commissioner) and their children’s lives.

Later in another scene, Trina reminds Cameron how they, along with Joss (Eden McCoy) were pulled over by a cop last summer when they were driving around the backroads.  She goes on to say when Cameron questioned why they were being stopped, it scared her.  She feels if Joss and Cam were not there, she would have likely been pulled out of the car and pinned to the ground by the cop.  Trina notes she put aside her fear and never said anything to them, because they would never understand.  Trina tells Cam he needs to realize how lucky he was the other night when nothing happened to him after his run in with police.

You can watch the conversation below in scenes with Briana Nicole Henry and Brooke Kerr.

Then let us know, did you like how GH wove this social message into the story?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.
