Steve Burton Confirms He Will Play Dylan McAvoy On Y&R! – Watch The Clip From THE TALK!

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 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

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 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!

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.

Not intrigued. Frankly, I wish Avery would leave. She is so boring. She spends more time cooking than lawyering.

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.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Helena, Jennifer Smith & The Ice Princess: What Did You Think of Luke Spencer’s Memorial?

Friday’s episode of General Hospital brought the highly-anticipated story around the apparent death of Port Charles iconic, Luke Spencer (Tony Geary), although many fans, and even some of the cast of the show, are not sold that Luke is “dead” dead.

During the show, characters spoke of some of the history of Luke in Port Charles, most especially Luke’s sister, Bobbie played by Jackie Zeman.  Throughout the years, Zeman is at her best when she is given material through the writing of the show to connect to the history of Luke and Bobbie.  She did so when Bobbie was remembering how Luke came to Port Charles to help her break up Scotty and Laura, in a discussion with her daughter, Carly (Laura Wright).

Photo: ABC

As everyone is gathering at the Haunted Star to pay their respects to Luke, Curtis (Donnell Turner) arrives to support Laura (Genie Francis), Felicia (Kristina Wagner) and Anna (Finola Hughes) arrive together, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West), as well as Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez  also show up. It is through Nikolas’ conversation with Laura that we learn why Luke’s sons, Ethan and Lucky, can’t make the funeral and, of course, we know why Luke’s daughter Lulu can’t make it because she is in a coma!

Victor (Charles Shaughnessy) shows up and snipes at everyone and then leaves.  Tracy (Jane Elliot), who has arranged the memorial, is with an urn supposedly filled with Luke’s ashes and Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) finds her on the deck of the Haunted Star and talks her into giving her planned eulogy.

Courtesy/ABC

Meanwhile, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finds his dad, Sonny (Maurice Benard) drinking at Charlie’s, and later Scott (Kin Shriner) and Robert (Tristan Rogers) stop in and heated words are exchanged between Sonny and Scott. Victor shows up and instead of Scott and Sonny pummeling each other, they get into a fight against Victor.

Courtesy/ABC

As Scott and Robert are about to be on their way to the Haunted Star, Scott stays behind because of his past with Luke.  Then, Sonny tried to patch things up with Carly before they head to the memorial.

Back on the yacht, Anna and Felicia find a note and a flash drive, after hearing a commotion on the yacht.  When the note says “play me”, none other than Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers) addresses Luke’s friends and family from apparently the great beyond.  As Helena spews her venom against Luke, Laura has enough and pulls the plug on Helena’s video speech.  Tracy looks concerned, like she may want to hear whatever else Helena had to say.

Photo: ABC

Next, Tracy does her best in short order to eulogize Luke.  That is juxtaposed with Scott trashing Luke.  Later, by herself on the deck, Tracy spreads Luke’s ashes over the waters of Port Charles. Back on the pier, Scott relishes Luke being gone, and that he is still standing saying, “You lose you son of a bitch!” Just then Luke’s ashes blow in into his face.  When Bobbie arrives, and see Scott full of ashes, she asks what happened.  Scott says, “I caught the bouquet,” an obvious nod to the Luke and Laura wedding of the past, where Scott returned at their wedding and caught the wedding bouquet.

Courtesy/ABC

Back on the Haunted Star, Tracy then has a gift in hand for Laura, but she tells Tracy if that’s the Ice Princess she does not want anything to do with it, and tells Tracy to keep it.  Spencer sees this go down and his interest on the diamond is instantly piqued.

Back at Charlie’s bar, Victor has an ominous toast to Luke saying, “The good people of your fair city are in for a big surprise!”

At the Haunted Star, dressed in black with black veil, Jennifer Smith reveals herself to a shocked Laura.

So, what did you think of Luke’s memorial episode? Favorite parts of it? Least favorite? Share your thoughts in the comment section. But first, check out Helena’s videotaped speech and Tracy’s eulogy to Luke below.

(WATCH) GH’s Genie Francis Shares: “I Just Have a Hard Time Believing, In My Heart, That The Great Luke Spencer Died in an Accident”

Today’s Friday episode of General Hospital, is set to feature the funeral of the iconic Luke Spencer (Tony Geary).

While family and friends will gather on the Haunted Star to memorialize him, what been teased by the ABC daytime drama is it will also set a whole storyline in motion.

ABC7 entertainment guru, George Pennacchio, spoke to several of the GH cast, who are involved in the episode including: Luke Spencer’s long-time love, Laura played by Genie Francis.

Francis exclaimed on the whole story: “I just have a hard time believing, in my heart, that the great Luke Spencer died in an accident.  No one stays dead on a soap. I don’t know how many times I’ve been dead. Really!”

Genie added: “I feel like they’re setting the stage, really, for a wonderful comeback and I’m going to keep my fingers crossed for that.”

Luke’s longtime friend played by Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) shared: “And has it actually happened? I mean, frankly, we have a little urn about this big that’s supposed to contain him and that’s it.”

And Luke’s sister, Bobbie, played by Jackie Zeman, also weighed-in if Luke is really a-goner: “Sometimes you get these little red herrings so, as you know, George, you know, you never really know.”

Watch Pennacchio chat with the GH stars below.

Now weigh-in, do you believe Luke is very much alive and well? Held captive, or “dead” dead? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
