On the latest episode of their That’s Awesome with Steve and Bradford Podcast, The Stone Cold and the Jackal duo of Bradford Anderson (Spinelli, GH) and Steve Burton, discuss for the first time, Steve’s upcoming appearance in the summer streaming limited-series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem (Part Two), on Peacock.

Burton made headlines when it was revealed that the former Jason Morgan of General Hospital signed on to appear on the DAYS streamer. Steve actually started his daytime career on Days of our Lives back in 1988 in the role of Harris Michaels, which Burton confirms he is playing again on the podcast.

Additionally, Steve shared how he was contacted to be part of the limited-series, “Marni Saitta, (Days) casting director, who I have known for years, she kind of messaged me months ago, and she said, ‘Hey! Would you be in interested in doing a limited-series … and it’s for the Peacock … it’s a spin-off for DAYS?'”

Later, Burton said he had a meeting with DAYS Co-EP, Albert Alarr, who Steve worked with during his career as a director, and shared: “He goes look, ‘I can’t give you specifics yet … this is what the parameters of the character would be and we haven’t fleshed it out, yet.  Would you be opposed to playing a bad guy?” Burton said they had a great conversation and shook hands.  Now, whether Burton’s revived Harris Michaels will be a bad guy or not on the streaming series, is yet to be seen.

Steve went on to say, he was able to talk with DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati about the limited series too: “They (Ron and Albert) thought it would be cool to bring back Harris Michaels. since I started my daytime career.  It just brought back floods of memories to me.” Back in the late 80’, Burton worked with Charlotte Ross (Ex-Eve Donovan ) and Scott Reeves (Ex- Jake Hogansen).

Two other intriguing points mentioned during the podcast:  Steve shared he got to work in some scenes with Kristian Alfonso (Hope), who he attributed to helping him connect with the material, and that to not expect him to be in any ‘one note’ wardrobe like  GH’s Jason Morgan in his black t-shirts, sharing, “There’s a lot of wardrobe, multiple outfits.”

Make sure to check out the latest, That’s Awesome podcast for more of the conversation between Bradford and Steve.

DOOL: Beyond Salem drops Monday July 11th for 5 episodes through July 15th exclusively on Peacock!

Yet ANOTHER Steve Burton story this week. What is that, 3? 4? He and Maurice Benard monopolize(d) GH and the columns as well. I wish I understood the appeal.

I agree General Hospital should have found a way to keep Jason. It really feels so different not the same appeal anymore!!

Maybe he doesn’t want to come back for personal reasons I saw a pic of his family with the baby and the baby had Curtis face if it’s a joke ok if not I don’t blame him I couldn’t work with someone who slept with my spouse after all the yrs we were together I would want to do things I shouldn’t seems odd someone would do that to Steve’s family and to curtis

That’s sad because the appeal is so obvious. Two sexy guys and two awesome actors. They bring suspense and a needed bit of excitement to PC.

Harris Michaels was such a minor character back in the day, it’s hard to believe they would make him a big part of this new story. I was thinking Steve would be an entirely new character. Some rumors were circulating that he would be a Peter Blake recast. Thank all that’s unholy that didn’t happen. Steve looks nothing like that guy anyway.

Now if only they would bring back the REAL Eve Donovan along with him. Never want to see that fake abomination again though.

It would be great if this turned into something more permanent on Days for Steve! Because I don’t have anything against the guy and would like him to have work. But I don’t have any use for Jason on “GH” and am glad the character is gone.

If Days hired him that says a lot about GH it’s crazy how they let him go vaccinated or not you can still get Covid!

Scott (ATWT Fan)
Guest
Scott (ATWT Fan)

Of course you can, vaccinated or not, but I can tell you as a high-risk individual, knowing someone on set refused to do the right thing in protecting themselves and their co-workers would not sit well with me. Disney-ABC has their vaccine mandate properly and rightfully in place, and as the proper result, Steve Burton is OUT. It’s how it works. If Corday Productions hired him, it says more about them than Disney-ABC. I’d rather work for Disney-ABC than Corday right now.

Elaine

GH didn’t let Steve go. Disney, who owns GH, did. I’m sure GH didn’t want to lose him.

No thanks. Ken Corday has continued to be questionable in his decision re: COVID-19 and the hiring of Steve Burton further cements his position.

Dex is an informant. Sonny is so “whipped” he can’t see what’s happening right in front of him.(i.e. Ms. Think She’s In Control-Nina, looks like everything is going her way, but hold on to your seats. Nina’s ship is about to explode. It’s time for the table to turn and give Carlie, Michael and everyone else who felt the raft of Ms Think She’s In Control, satisfaction and a fizz fizz, oh what a relief it is! It’s well I ver due for Nina to feel some good f the pain she has put everyone else through from her manipulating,… Read more »

BossLady…I’m finally going to say it…I think Carly, Michael and Willow, etcs reaction to Sonny’s-year-away has been an over reaction. Not saying they shouldn’t have felt some pain. But compared to some of what Carly has done over the years. Really? And Michael and Willow for how they deceived Chance?

Harry
Guest

I agree, Rose. And let’s not forget that Sonny was Mike for three to four months before Nina stumbled upon him. The first thing she did upon seeing him was call the big mouth who immediately started screaming at Nina, not letting her get a word in. Michael and Willow are insufferable. It’s like watching the Karen and Karen show.

Mommadukes

Boss lady that’s what I’m thinking. There’s something weird about him. He’s just to anxious to get a job with Sonny. I think Sonny’s lost he’s edge and he’s lost without Jason. The shows not the same without Jason.

Steve Burton needs to come back to gh soon. Sonny needs someone to straighten him out and Jason is totally the man for the job.

I am curious to see Steve in other shows. I love him as Jason and I hate he left. I am a big fan. I don’t blame him for leaving I don’t believe in the stupid vaccine mandates. I won’t get it either. I don’t believe it’s safe. Good luck Steve. Hope to see you back os Jason in the future.

Galbrecht

I never did understand why women like murderers and serial killers. That’s all Jason was… a brain damaged thug. He never wanted to be more. He put his murdering people for Sonny ahead of everything: family, friends, love interests, children … everyone!!

25 years of that (with a merciful break of a few years) was more than enough!!

Soaphound

I agree, Galbrecht. And the hypocrisy of people like Sam and the Corinthos Clan in the way they used to condemn Julian Jerome (pre-bomb) was sickening.

Thank you, Galbrecht. It is kind of creepy the way the character is adored by so many. I mean, a brain-damaged, emotionless, killer who always puts his crime lord boss first… every woman’s dream? Ugh.
