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.

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”

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?

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… Read more »

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.

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Then weigh-in, what do you think of Marcus’ thoughts on his exit as GH’s Nikolas Cassadine? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
