Steve Burton Launches "Hollywood Schooled" And Bids Farewell To His Y&R Castmates!



On Friday, Steve Burton announced his new project, Hollywood Schooled, and attended a wrap party in his honor attended by several Y&R castmates at Maggiano’s Little Italy restaurant at the Grove next door to CBS Television City, where Y&R tapes.

As previously known, Burton decided to end his run as Dylan McAvoy on the top-rated CBS soap opera when his contract ended this month.  He will continue airing well into January.

Daniel Goddard (Cane, Y&R) took to Instagram with the the most heartfelt post on Burton’s departure with a pic of himself and Bryton James, with Burton in the middle: “To my left… two men I will trust till the day I die. Steve… u r a legend. And my respect for your dedication to life is undentable. There is not a man alive that could speak ill of you and that is a true testament to your undeniable character. I will miss talking really important crap with you, but am so glad that your family will have u 24/7. Ur a Titan! And Bryton… you could learn from Steve Burton. Jk. #adieu”

Meanwhile, Steve took to social media to announce his latest colloboration with good buddy and former GH star, Derk Cheetwood (Ex-Max). The project Hollywood Schooled is for performers dreaming of working as an actor in Hollywood.

Through Hollywood Schooled, Burton and Cheetwood and their team will help performers realize the pitfalls of Tinseltown, the do’s and dont’s of trying to get a role in the business, and so much more.

Watch Burton’s video on Hollywood Schooled below.  Let us know, what you think of his latest project, and saying goodbye to his Y&R colleagues in the comment section.

Stone colds school of acting..hmmm..pass..but good for him. I wonder if he is on good terms with the GH team? And ABC..guess we’ll see by summer.

How much does all this schooling cost? Or is it free to the public? LOL

Nothing with Hollywood or Washington is free they are always in you back pocket


I guess he will just leave town the goatee makes me curious I see him going rogue on the police force no need to recast if Sally had been writing for him might have been a different story about his character. I know he is known to really be a good guy off camera just can’t figure out his friendship with JFP?

Maybe his buddy Stitch will sign up!

He is gone soon unless she thinks she can turn him around I find him to be a snooze

One word: Presumptuous.

Exactly who would sign up for these acting classes??

Based on his Y&R gig, his skills are so wooden that his teaching a class on chainsaw use would be more appropriate.

Burton seems to have lots of fans but I’m not one of them. There are several actors who have long-running roles on soaps and are touted as being very talented but leave me scratching my head as to their appeal. Burton is one of them. I’d also include Cady McClain, Marie Wilson, Drake Hogestyn, and even Susan Lucci to the list.

It has always puzzled me how these actors get so much acclaim while people seem to forget about ones who I think/thought were extremely talented …… the late Beverlee McKinsey is barely mentioned these days by anyone nor are the unemployed Elizabeth Hubbard or Kathleen Noone.

Barbara…EXACTLY!!!!! Who in their right mind would EVEN REMOTELY ATTEND Burton’s so-called acting classes (or whatever)?!?!? My dear…I don’t buy it…at all. Nope.

Happy Holidays, Barbara.

More of the Story on ‘General Hospital’ Star Josh Kelly’s Latest Film Role in ‘The Workout’

We had previously shared that General Hospital’s Josh Kelly was taking three weeks away from his role of Cody Bell to a shoot a role in an upcoming movie entitled The Workout.

Josh originally revealed his role in the film during an episode of GH castmates, Steve Burton (Jason) and Bradford Anderson’s (Spinelli) podcast.

Now Deadline has filled in some of the blanks, and shared some intriguing intel on the premise of the film and its back-story.  The film stars Kelly along with Peter Jae, and UFC Fighter, Ashlee Evans-Smith. Other cast members include The Bay’s Kristos Andrews.

In The Workout, two army rangers set out to create a workout video, but their plans are abruptly halted when a mob hit interrupts their filming. Tragically, one of the rangers loses his wife in the attack, sending him on a relentless mission to take down the mob and anyone who stands in his way.

The film from James Cullen Bressack, almost did not get financed.  Apparently, ten days before his birthday, Bressack made a post on Instagram about the feature and production, casting, and financing came from the post … illustrating the power of social media. After the post gained traction, a producer provided financing and actors expressed interest in joining the project, leading to a quick production.

In a statement, Bressack shared, “As artists a painter paints, a musician makes music, a writer writes, but as filmmakers we have to ask permission to create. It’s time to change that narrative. This film spawned from a necessity to create. We create. We tell stories. We play pretend. I’m excited to take this journey. This is the truest form of collaboration and a community of friends coming together to make something fun. While our industry has had a rough time recently with strikes and a possible strike looming in the future, it’s nice to remind ourselves why we got into film to begin with. To have fun telling stories.”

No word yet on when The Workout will be released.

So, looking forward to seeing this collaborative effort featuring GH’s Josh Kelly? Comment below.
