237 June 12th, 2014 Billy Miller To Join The Cast Of General Hospital?

Photo Credit: HutchinsPhoto.com

There have been rumors circulating for some time that Two-time Daytime Emmy winner, and a nominee this year for Outstanding Lead Actor, Billy Miller might be heading to General Hospital!

The beloved former star of The Young and the Restless who exited the CBS soap opera in December in the role of Billy Abbott has been thought for some time to possibly heading to Port Charles as a recast for the role of Jason Quartermaine (last played by Steve Burton).

Earlier this evening to add some fuel to the fire TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan tweeted, “Billy Miller. General Hospital. Done deal? This is what I’m hearing.”

The question remains if this does come true, who will Miller play?  A new character? Jason?  Someone who hasn’t been on the canvas in awhile like Dillon Quartermaine? Weigh-in on your thoughts if Miller joins GH,  and who you would want him to play?

    Let him play A.J., who didn’t die. Make up some story of how his death was faked for some far out reason.

    So why don’t they just change the name of general Hospital to Young and Restless since they all are going there

    Who can blame them all for jumping ship. GH is gaining the viewers who are leaving Y&R. Y&R sucks so bad right now. Phelps needs to go YESTERDAY!!!! She is destroying Y&R. Shick and Lane are not cutting it.

    monica mailman replied

    The demise of the other shows has left a huge pool of excellent actors. GH is trying to glean out the best or cream of the crop.

    Susan replied

    Actually GH has turned into OLTL not Y&R. It’s constantly focused on the OLTL 3.

    Timmm replied

    AJ already faked his death before. He would have good reason to do it again BUT I dont see it. GH+Y&R=#1 in ratings!

    Mika replied

    There’s only four soaps left and soap opera actors rarely get jobs elsewhere. Why do you think they always end up coming back. They still have bills to pay. My point, these actors will eventually be on every soap at some point if they want to keep working.

    jonboy replied

    They don’t have to work much on GH. If they get 2 days a week that’s a lot (most of the time.).

    Rhonda S replied

    Gen. Hospital STINKS. they need new writers too!!! but CBS Needs to give Billy and the actors what they want to save Y&R and run off Phelps. They will get it when it’s too late and it’s close. it’s real sad

    Jim, you can say that again.

    Shay replied

    NO!!! Sean Kanan is, and always will be, the only AJ for me. But I would love to have this still-lamented Quartermaine’s death be a faked one, although I don’t know that lightning could credibly strike twice in PC, even if it IS a soap!

    Certainly would be better in the role of Dillon than he would be as Jason… of course its the latter that they’re recasting. Supposedly to be seen in August.

    Sally O replied

    Thank you Jill Farren Phelps for running off Billy Miller from Y&R right into the arms of GH. This woman is a horror show. She screwed Miller, then tired to get him back. He told her to pound sand and is joining GH, along with Michelle Stafford. This is just great. GH rules and Y&R sinks.

    Jill Farren Phelps is a the true soap killer.

    layla replied

    Your right about Jill Phelps. All of us Y&R watchers do not like her. But… Because a lot of us have been watching y&r since we were kids, were not going anywhere. Y&R has been and will always be the #1 Soap Opera every year!

    Too old for Morgan(they dont need to recast here unless the actor quit)…recast Nathan instead!!!

    Nathan could play “Woody” from “Toy Story.”

    Omar replied

    Agree..We need some serious acting chops for the character of Nathan, and Billy Miller would be a huge uprgrade..He could also make a great Jason recast. For those thinking Steve Burton is coming back, dream on!! He is given the schedule he wanted over at Y&R with his business partner JPP.

    aria replied

    you guys leave sexy pants nathan alone, let billy miller be Jason or Lucky!

    Susan replied

    No recasting Nathan. He’s great. Recast Levi or Silas. Or recast Michael.

    Nonna replied

    I believe Billy Miller is too young to play either AJ or Jason. He could, however, be cast as some long lost, illegitimate Quartermaine. I would very much welcome AJ; Jason on the other hand, not so much.

    CLH replied

    The fall could have reverted him back to the original Jason who wanted to be a doctor. That would be interesting. Would also bring back more Q time.

    Jason Morgan. Jason Q was boring. With Silas we have enough boring.

    harry replied

    Miller has the talent, the looks to pull this off. However, how is he going to contain that natural effervescence which bubbles beneath the surface? Everything about Miller is the antithesis to Stone Cold. He is the anti-Stone Cold.

    Reply

    Ashleigh replied

    Actually, I saw him on “Ringer” and he was so scary that I couldn’t watch him on y&r for two weeks!! He is much more well rounded and capable than we even know. I’d still prefer his humor and twinkle in his eye though.

    Nonna replied

    I agree with Ashleigh. Billy Miller is such a multi-talented and handsome young man . His role as the criminally insane Richie on AMC was phenomenally believable. He can play any character without missing a beat. I did not like that character at all; but on Y&R, I completely adored him.

    Shay replied

    @Ashleigh….Thank you for pointing out BM’s role in “Ringer.” As I have not watched Y&R for decades, I thought I knew of him only by reading and reputation, but once you brought up his performance as John DeLario on that sadly departed prime time show (Loved it….Sarah Michelle Geller was awesome and so was Ioan Griffud….plus those fabulous fashions and that to-die-for NYC apartment just made my day….I still miss the program….) I realized that that psycho was actually played by the same guy we are discussing here…and you are soooo right. Miller was frightening and disturbing. Given that glimpse of his talents, I could definitely picture him as “Stone Cold,” except with real acting chops to back up the role, unlike SB. Having said that, I truly hope if we do have Jason back in our midst in Port Charles, he does become far more Quartermaine and much less Morgan this time around….the family needs a renaissance after AJ’s senseless death and a change of personality for Jason would be a wonderful start in that direction, be it as a doctor or business mogul….anything but a sullen hitman again!

    It is JFP she is just that difficult to deal with! He would still be playing Billy Abbott if she would have given him his outs she did the same thing to Genie Francis back in 2002 on GH. Until she is gone Y&R is going to still lose viewers no matter how many emmys Y&R gets this year. I still however do not see him as Jason on GH but that is me.

    Elizabeth replied

    What I don’t understand is how she keeps landing at yet another soap to destroy. What type of karma must a person have to bring almost every program she has ever worked at to the point of cancellation and still find another job to pull her out of the crapper. It’s remarkable.

    They really don’t need any NEW characters on GH right now.

    Would rather see him play Dillon (more scenes for Tracy!!) -
    that is if he’s not too old – instead of Jason Morgan, the saintly,
    sensitive, black shirted hit-man. Also, Jason would drain Billy Miller
    of his natural sense of humor.

    Although, either way we would get a Quartemaine back!! lol

    yes, trimm the cast…lol

    jstkel replied

    Why are there so many Nathan haters? I know GH has almost too many cast now but I like this new guy just fine. I think he is very good and easy to look at. What is sad is with all this surplus we have major talent just wasting, Roger Howarth is just scenery lately that makes me sad cause he rocks the house when he has a good story. Wish they would have recast him as Jason but that whole Prospect Park fiasco ruined many things so they had to do something. Ok sorry I rambled

    Wow……………..I have heard MANY times from people who started on soaps and moved on the movies and/or prime time that working in soaps was the hardest work they ever did, because of the fact of having to “produce” an entire show each and every day. I have also read several interviews where they said that they felt their best work was when they were on a soap.

    I agree, I loved him as Billy. JFP is just too hard to work with apparently, she’s slowly tanking the show and it’s almost comical at this point that so many Y&R stars are ending up on GH. First Emme Rylan, then Michelle Stafford, and now Billy Miller too? Watch, soon they’ll cast Michael Muhney.

    Muhney would be a better pick than Miller for Jason.

    Just checked out his Emmy reel (had never seen him act before, only read about him). He’s a good actor. I’d prefer to see him as a new character. I’d rather see the Jason character remain on break – after all if Jason returns what’s the new excuse for keeping Robin away. Better leave those two characters off in limbo together and bring in BM as someone new.

    If they cast Dillion, I have been hoping for John Paul lavoisier, he would be perfect. If they must, & I mean must bring Jason back I guess Billy would be ok. I really don’t think the show needs Jason back right now.I don’t want to see GH become the Jason Morgan show again. Id rather see them bring the Q’s back & give Monica a great story. GH has become about mob wars, when it should be centered around the Q’s, but thats kind of hard to do when the writers killed off most of the family.

    Billy Miller started out on an ABC soap. He was fantastic on AMC. He ventured over to CBS for a few years, but I’d love to see him back on ABC at GH.

    THE BEST NEWS EVER IN DAYTIME HISTORY. I know he can’ t pull off playing Jason Morgan, but he could play Jason Quatermaine. To rewrite history with a twist, of having him paired with Sam as Jason Quatermaine. So Shawn could just replace him. And this Jason can go back for being that docter that he wanted to be, before his car accident with AJ. So we could see more of the Quatermaine family. Again QUESTION- Has Jason ever worked at ELQ before? He could even do that instead. If he doesn’t want to be that doctor.

    I think with the loss of so many soaps GH may be the way of the future; soaps expanding to encompass more storlyines and more characters. With so many soap actors out of work we’re going to see a lot of familiar faces popping up on one of the remaining soaps or leaving one to go to another. So whether the actor comes from OLTL or any other soap…as long as the stories remain fun/entertaining/engrossing I’m in.

    Don’t know Billy Miller as I only watch GH and the dearly departed OLTL. If he’s as good as his fans say…great news!

    You can blame Jill Farren Phelps for this mess Y&R fans! She’s the one who ran off Billy Miller. Now she can watch her beloved Stevie Burton all of the time since he’s her one and only. Y&R is a train wreck while GH is on the upswing.

    If this is more fake propaganda, I will go ape on all of you. Your headlines never match with the body of the conversation. But, I will say that he will have to be very handsome, well built and have the personality. This Billy boy looks too young, not like a seasoned actor with the presence that Jason had. You see, the Jason character helped everyone. Was completely selfless. no greed or power hungry. He did his job effectively as if it was just something he had to do for the good of the town. He loved babies and always saved every damsel in distress. I think he was able to leap tall buildings too. Anyway, we are all still in shock at the way he exited his role. No closure, just an open ended thing from some very evil characters.

    Can someone tell me what Y&R is doing to cause these actors to leave their roles and then end up somewhere else? This is concerning. Also, stop replacing the talented actors with those that that can’t act in a soap or aren’t believable in their character like the new police officer, Mark Harding and the newest Billy Abbott. It was a good choice that David Tom was replaced, but it just never clicked from the beginning.

    Reply

    Mark in FLA replied

    What Y&R is doing is giving the actors lousy storylines and bad scripts. In addition to lazy direction and production values that are way below what they used to be. That is why so many talented actors and actresses have left the show. I don’t blame the ones who have stayed, a paycheck is a paycheck after all. And I imagine they are going to stick it out until things improve.

    JFP is a very difficult person to work with. She’s had several reigns of terror over various soaps, including GH and Another World. Over the past year, Y&R has lost so many talented actors because they don’t like working with her. I mean, what else could it really be? The Lynn Marie Latham and Maria Arena Bell days at Y&R were not nearly as bad, at least cast wise, as the JFP days are.

    And I find it ironic that all these Y&R actors who were loved by the fans are being scooped up by GH, and TPTB at Sony and CBS aren’t noticing that it’s JFP’s fault they left in the first place. And, it seems like every actor to leave Y&R now is immediately rumored to be joining GH. When MS left Y&R she was automatically up for the role of Nina. When BM and Michael Muhney left, they were rumored up for the role of Jason. Now Elizabeth Hendrickson has left Y&R, fans want her as the new Robin. David Tom is out as Billy, and GH fans want him hired as Dillon.

    Seriously?! Does no one but the fans see what’s happening to Y&R? Sure, it ends up benefiting GH because they get a plethora of great actors, but Y&R is tanking and it doesn’t take a genius to see that JFP needs to be fired, now.

    General Hospital is on the move! Ratings are up and demos are too. GH is #1 with women 18 to 49, the key soap demo and its lead is growing as Y&R sinks under the reign of terror of Jill Farren Phelps. She’s run off or fired all of Y&R’s top talent and is now forcing her pet monkey Steve Burton down the throats of that show’s viewers. They are leaving in droves, close to half a million last week alone. Billy Miller will bring a lot of those disenchanted Y&R viewers to GH. Phelps nearly destroyed GH, but got the boot. Now she’s wrecking havoc on CBS and Y&R. I’m so happy for GH.

    Actually, Elizabeth Hendrickson would be a great recast of Robin. Very believable daughter of Robert Scorpio and Anna Devane. Now if we could just entice Tristan Rogers back to his rightful show!

    GH barely exists anymore. It’s turned into OLTL. It’s always focused on the OLTL 3. Our gh characters areas wrote for properly. They only write good for the new characters. With that said I want Jason Morgan back. Jason Q was horrible. Billy would be a good Jason Morgan as long as he has chemistry with Kelly Monaco. Which is a must because Jason and Sam belong together. Get her away from boring Silas!

    Reply

    Rodd replied

    Susan, I respectfully disagree with your comments that say GH is focused on the OLTL 3. Franco is reduced to a lap dog for Carly of late and Kiki is nothing more than a shoulder for Morgan to cry on; they’re not on much and have very insignificant story. Silas is the only one who’s in a meaningful story at the moment. I think continuing to focus on a tag line from two years ago, that said GH was turning into OLTL is outdated. These characters have been well integrated into the GH canvas, just as Ava and Julian have been. No disrespect of your opinion, but this is mine. Cheers.

    I agree with you Rodd plus Micheal Easton was technically part of the gh family before oltl when he played Caleb/Stephan in GHs spinoff series Night Shift years ago…

    Susan replied

    Kiki is in on the Fluke sl. It’s all about Silas in fact Sam should be front and center and he should be in her shadows but we’ve had 2 back to back sl focusing on Silas in a row. Plus he’ll be all in Rafe ‘s drug sl now. Franco is ruined. They totally ruined that character. The writers don’t write true for GH characters at all. Except their newbies. With the exception of Silas, NuFranco, Kiki, Levi, TJ and Jordan I like the rest. I like Sabrina, Felix, Britt, Dr O and Nathan! Oh I can’t stand Brad neither. All GH characters are like new characters …untrue to how they were. The ones I like and don’t.

    Susan replied

    Also these “new ” character names are just that new names. Their characters are exactly like their counterparts on OLTL. Especially Todd/ NuFranco. They ruined Franco.

    Jimmy replied

    What story does Franco have? Same with Kiki? Silas is the only one with front-burner story and it doesn’t seem like the show is focusing a whole lot on the “OLTL 3.” As well, I don’t think it’s fair to judge only the actors from OLTL because several actors from other soaps have also joined GH during Frank & Ron’s tenure. And currently, the show’s other front-burner storylines are focused on several other actors/characters than just the ones from OLTL

    susan, the oltl 3 dilio, is as old as well oltl being revive, let it rest, GH is not going to be like it was in the 70′s 80′s or 90′s the oltl trio is not on everyday, nor are they the oltl trio anymore to begin with. and jimh, its port charles not the night shift.

    Someone if not all 3 of the OLTL 3 are on 4 out of 5 days a week! There’s many GH characters we don’t see.

    Aria replied

    Susan they are no longer the OLTL 3 you can’t use their old job against them. Every actor has previous soap work and some were successful in previous role, but they either gave up those roles or those role no longer exist. Therefore they are now actors in new roles that are from GH past or new characters altogether. If your going to hate them then hate the ex until stars and the ex atwt star or Amc star ect…. The OLTL fiasco is already 2 years old so give it a rest.

    Susan replied

    First I won’t “give it a rest ” .Second these new characters they play are exactly like their old roles just different names. They even ruined the character of Franco and now made him exactly like Todd in the process.

    Elizabeth replied

    Not to mention they dropped Laura off the canvas like a hot potato. Many fans want to see her back with a decent storyline. She should frankly be stepping into the role of matriarch for the show and she’s nowhere to be found.

    Totally agree ! NuJason No! NuLucky No! NuDillion No! The EP’s need to focus on telling good story not playing back and forth with actors on their shows. Steve Burton epic fail on Y&R. Michelle Stafford wait and see as far as what I have seen I am lukewarm on her character.

    I posted above… that Billy Miller would make a good younger brother of Patrick’… Matt

    I really do not want any more time wasted on Sonny’ brood… I can’t apologize any more.. for my reason

    it’s just not working… it’s time to move on from MB’ Sonny

    it seems like they are at last steering away from the mob stories any way….

    how much longer can the actors who play Ava and Julian remain interested… it’s too lame already.

    I get that it may be necessary to drive story… to feature mob… as the writing is easier… to quantify than expand our minds with human interest story

    please serial gods… do not feature Jason… whether he is a morgan or a quartermaine….

    I don’t see the writers attempting to write any more for Tracy or Monica… they certainly had quality stuff… with AJ… and now we think they’d write for the Q’s because they have Billy Miller

    the best choice is as Matt

    This will blow away Y&R and Bill Bell will officially turn in his grave! I would like Billy to be Dillon BUT if he played Jason he would be paired up with Sonny, Carly, and Sam and Mr. Miller and his amazing acting would fit right in with these three. Sorry Tracy!

    I agree Billy Miller will fit in very good with Sam, Carly and Sonny. Besides Sonny needs Jason because the man has been falling to abyss and Jason is the only one to pull him out of that abyss.

    I would love to see Sam (KellyMO) chem tested with Billy Miller as NuJason because I’m not feeling this Silas and Sam pairing at all. People seem to like them because of their Port Charles character Livvie&Caleb.

    As Michael and Kiki I like them I just want Michael to hurry and find his Dad killed bio-Dad after his promise to not go after him.. I want to see Michael hating Sonny, and to get thoroughly entrenched in the Quartermaine family. As for Morgan I want to see him get closer with his mom and learn the Hotel Business.

    Sonny will soon hit rock bottom once all his son’s are against him …that is what I want to see. He brought all this on himself.

    Thank you Deb, someone who thinks like me. BM is a great actor and would bring so much dept into the character of Dillon Q. But, Jason is a very intense character already, and will be coming back with memories of Good Jason and Bad Jason, That skill acting is meant for someone just like Michale Muhney If anyone can pull the role of Jason off and win and kept viewers happy, it is MM. Not, to mention, he can make us forget all about the other actor who played Jason before but, deserted it for a show that is now dying every day. MM and BM back on the same screen. would be awesome acting at it’s best.

    I think Billy Miller has such sparkle in his eyes and that Puck-like mischievousness about him. Playing Jason would be like watering down his aura ~ unless they totally changed Jason’s persona. I wasn’t watching when Dillon was on GH, but I’d be for that if Dillon had a fun side. It’s be great to see him come on as a Q; one that could really tap that effervescence that BM can bring to a role and the audience loved on YR.

    For those of you saying he should go back to Y&R—clearly, if he signs with another soap this soon after leaving, there is a reason he did not want to stay with Y&R, and until that reason changes, he’s not going back. (It could have been contract/salary, but my bet is, no.)

    Ditto Michelle Stafford.

    As much as I like Billy Miller; I think the casting department and writing team need to clean-up the on-slaught of characters on General Hospital, right now. Storylines are being lost in the shuffle and it is difficult to form an attachment to any character, family, or storyline when the show seems to be all over the place.

    Reply

    Johnny replied

    Agreed. Stories have no flow. We don’t see Rafe for months on end and then suddenly he is a coke addict and possible baby killer. This is a show that told masterful addiction storylines back in the day (Alan, Brenda, AJ etc). Billy Miller is too young to play Jason or AJ. I could see him as Dylan…he has that youthful quirky quality that Dylan had. But knowing this regime…Billy will be cast as some form of murderer/mobster by extension. I hope they give him a role that will allow him to shine. Because Michelle Stafford’s debut has fallen so completely flat it is shocking. The only few little blips I enjoyed were her saying “As if”….which we in Canada have been saying forever…long before Clueless made it a catch phrase. And when she was frustrated with trying to use a cell phone. But the emotional aspect is just not there because, again…we do not know these people!!!!! Two strangers talking about shared memories from 20 years ago does nothing to engage the audience. And there is absolutely zero zilch Nada chemistry between Easton and Stafford. These scenes are life draining…as are Maxie and Levi scenes. The actor who plays Levi looks like he could be funny and charming and they could have set up a real triangle where Maxie and the audience is torn between Nathan/J/James and Levi. But the writing is so heavy handed that Levi is just a douchebag plain and simple. That’s another thing…when you have a new character and are trying to endear him to the audience…don’t give him three names and have different characters call him different names. With all these newbies its confusing enough. When Nina said she would stay with “J”, I actually had to stop and try to think who she was talking about.

    I agree Johnny about Michelle Stafford and her role as Nina. Her debut has fallen flat as a pancake. No chemistry with Easton whatsoever. When she’s on, I have to remind myself to look at the television because she frequently loses my attention.

    I love Nathan and want him with Maxie. He’s come a long way since he started. Now Levi is the worst character ever! I can’t stand him. Michelle Stafford may have no chemistry with Michael Easton but neither does he with Sam. At least not a romantic one. Just friendship wise. Sam and Silas are boring. I want bad ass Sam back.

    Patrick replied

    I’m so sorry for Michelle stafford… pairing… an no on screen chemistry with Michael Easton’ silas

    I mean… C’mon… how monotone and barely their are Silas and Sam

    to saddle MS’ Nina with either or after all this time… watching Silas and Sam… who are now on overload… to be given all this material to drive?

    I just was never stimulated enough to venture beyond what Silas and Sam have always done… and that’s not much

    I really had hoped that MS Nina would be given more time alone to adjust and acclimate herself back in to the living… with physical therapy and psychiatry with KEVIN… and she’d hormone her dig with Kevin… and at least give Roger Howarth some masculine … and stop his stupid antics that Laura Wright’ Carly only seems to deem worthy

    i’m 3 eps behind… so I really do hope for the best… as MS is a force to be reckoned with

    all this star power… and lackadaisical writing… is suspect and waning

    GHFan060 replied

    Yes I miss bad ass gun toting Sam. I’m hoping we will be seeing her soon. As for Nina I think we will be seeing the real Nina soon.. I think Nina is going to be a firebrand. Don’t forget she’s one pissed off lady, husband had an affair, mother caused her to lose baby and husband has daughter with ex-lover.

    Shay replied

    Excellent points, Johnny! Those examples of Nina’s very few and far between charming moments are perfectly encapsulated, as are your other observations. I was never an original MS fan, so I have had a real wait and see attitude regarding “Nina,” but I find her as flat and unappealing as you do….I detect no chemistry with ME either. I think her character is particularly frustrating because you just know that at any given time she is going to explode into a “witch on wheels” (no pun intended….) and that if she cannot already really walk, she will be soon be lurking about in the PC shadows to wreak her havoc, ala Heather Webber, perhaps with the aid of her trusty sidekick nurse, who also gives off some shady vibes! The whole pre-concept of Nina that we were treated to as this soft, effervescent, lovely, woefully missed creature simply doesn’t jive with the casting of Stafford….she is too plain, plus quite harsh and dominant…she won’t be able to keep playing it cool for much longer, and quite frankly, I am not looking forward to when she finally releases her wrath on all those she feels have wronged her. AS IF!…..(and I still say that, too, and I’m not Canadian, so go figure! LOL…) I also agree with you regarding Levi….he has such a built-in ick factor that he is impossible to like. Given the actor’s unique, quirky looks and ability to play with a sunny disposition, he should have been a more Spinelli-esque character….instead there is such a sense of foreboding surrounding him that we the audience don’t dare invest in him or like him even a little bit. I actually have noticed as of late that the actor himself has displayed more timidity and reluctance in his approach, and I have to wonder if it is not due to the almost universal panning he has received thus far. That’s gotta hurt for a guy who is so well-received in his Aussie homeland! Just saying….

    Or, if Jason comes back as Jason Quartermaine…and not the Jason she fell in love with…there might be a different dynamic between them.

    Another possibility might be that he comes back with a Cassadine mindset. Maybe he’s gone under some mind control which upon awakening will make him a totally, at least initially…different man.

A while back there was an article on this site in which Steve Burton said he could see Billy playing Jason. The minute I saw that, I truly believed that this casting was in the works. Steve, will always be missed on GH, but everyone is entitled to make the best decisions for themselves and their families, so I wish you the best on Y&R (love you as Dylan too), and my fingers are crossed that Billy Miller is coming to GH as Jason, and much good luck to him as well.

    I think Billie is an excellent actor. I hated his murderous , sociopathic Richie Novak, the role he cut his soap teeth on when he first appeared on AMC. He was so convincing I just wanted him to be killed off the show because he caused me to much angst. yet all the while thinking he was a real gem. Billie can appear good/evil with a look in his eye, something you can’t be taught in class.
    It’s hard for me to imagine someone else as Jason because much Ioved Steve Burton so much and am still attached to him – After all , I watched him grow up from his first appearance on GH.
    There are some good comparisons between Steve and Billy : Steve/Jason had/has a hard body, powerful stance, and piercing blue eyes that have such a unique shape- Billy also has unusually shaped blue eyes that pull you in and is very charismatic like Steve. From what I remember Billy has a similar physique and his height is exactly the same. One thing that isn’t comparable is their age, Billy being about 9 years younger. Imo though, If anyone can pull off a recast of the infamous Jason Morgan I think Billy would make a formidable contender.

    I don’t see how Billy Miller coming back as : Jason or Dillan would further the canvas and cast as a whole

    I get that Matt, as Jason Cook : really wasn’t developed… Lord knows it should have been… JC is smokin’ too HOT! Woah… he was loaded… i’m certain

    so… my take is that with Billy Miller back… on screen … as GH recast of Matt : would elevate and drive story, for:

    Patrick… he becomes acquainted w/Nina… as Matt is physical theraping Nina.. and Matt… meets Britta through Nina.. as they are 1/2 sisters… and bloom… bam! it’s sealed, done… a steal the show

    these two couples :

    along with:

    Dr. O
    Madeleine
    Nicholas
    Kevin : as Nina’s psychiatrist… YUM… he’d bring equal measure and big

    I’m repeating myself.. but I had hoped that fans would buy in to the idea that this would be a much better idea than with Sonny lot… part of the GH pie… it has enough going on .. and still lacks vitality… Ava, Morgan, and Julian are doing their utmost to rectify and are surviving and then some… OK plus Dante

    Matt was never fully fledged out.. and given his due… but… Billy Miller… acting style is better suited to Matt… and he can only go up from… with quality presence alongside Jason Thompson’ Patrick… and romance departmenting Britta and Nina… Ok a long shot but a doozy of a time… sensations

    Levi: he’s not unwanted or unwarranted… his quirkiness and stemming like Spinnelli… is doable

    certainly not with Maxie… as Nathan has that bagged…

    I can go along with his nature… he’s on

    PS: I loved Sean D. and Belle on DAYS… I miss Jason Cook…

    soaping

    Patrick replied

    Billy Miller, as Matt w/ Maxie or Britt

    a new playing field for Patrick w/ Nina ?

    this opens up a whole new arena and melds these two families

    OK i’m done : till the big reveal… who is BM

    Dr. O has a lot of drama to contend

    I think anything Ron. Carlivati or Frank wants to do is fine with me!!! Best team ever in soaps! I was never a fan of any CBS, or NBC soap ever. They were very hard to get into, IMO, and I only watched OLTL , AMC, and GH, but stopped watching GH many years ago as it became the sonny and Jason mob show. It is now the only soap I watch and love. As oltl people are on. I am still hoping they bring Trevor St. JOHN over if he is available. Michelle Stafford ,never knew of, and it is tough to get used to her with him. (Silas).I honestly think it would have been great if they were able to get Melissa Archer to play Nina!!!! Wow , that would have worked !

    I adore Billy Miller and will watch any soap that he is on for sure. I just don’t understand Y&R. They wouldn’t work with Billy and give him some of the outs he wanted (and earned) in order to keep him playing Billy Abbott, but JFP makes sure Steve Burton gets a cushy contract with outs included? Hello?? have TPTB waken up from their naps yet and realized what JFP has done to Y&R? Look at all the actors and actresses who have left the show since she came on! Is that all a coincidence? I think not!

    Yes, you are right about Stafford, Shay. I love Ms. Stafford’s acting and I am very much a fan, however, I must agree with you . I doubt this will be all there is about her. Nina’s character will grow and develop fully with the right storyline and supporting actors.
    I am very familiar with just how good she was as Phyllis on Y&R . She can be a temptress, a she-devil, the best mother, the best wife. One gets the entire package watching her–she is both a spit-fire and docile as a lamb at the same time–but never, ever a push – over.
    I agree that we envisioned Nina as this delicate, ethereal being. Michelle stafford, unfortunately, does not fit the image–too tall–just my opinion. But, for all viewers out there who are familiar with Michelle’s acting skills and personality, know that she is far from plain. She is amazing. She is the embodiment of La Femme Fatale. As I mentioned on another site, give her a chance. I prefer her to Sam any day. I have been watching these soaps for decades, since High School ( in Toronto, where I grew up–as if, indeed, Johnny) and Sam is one of the worst actresses on TV. Just my opinion.

    Wow!

    right on…. the money

    Michelle Stafford without doubt : “…One gets the entire package watching her”

    to have steered her with Silas and Sam was wrong from the get go… they both : on the richter scale…. barely seem present… only within themselves… so they belong… just not with high calibur intent

    to right this : I posted… : Nina needs to have a setback… a crisis mode… and begin ALL over

    Billy Miller as Matt…Patricks’ brother needs to return for him…. sibling take care
    and Matt will physical therapy her… along with Kevin her psychiatrist… and it goes and showers from their… ignites

    Patrick , thru Matt… meets the enchanting Nina… and she has a dance card loaded with patrick and Kevin

    meanwhile… Biller Miller as Matt… meets Nina 1/2 sister and/or cousin Britta

    heck throw Maxie in the mix

    stand ready

    this is big

    Wow, right back ‘atcha’ Patrick. You have a very fertile imagination. I appreciate that. As you can tell, by now, I love, love, love Michelle Stafford. Did you notice the way she greeted Sam as she walked into Silas’ apartment? She simply said, “Samantha…!!??!!”. To me, that civil greeting exemplifies –keep your distance– it was cool and standoffish. Nina’s body language speaks volumes. Wait and see, Sam is no match for this vixen. Actually, the 20-year sleep served her well–refueled.

    Mondays ep: i was turned away fron the tele :

    and there she goes : LOL : Nina reads Rafe’ goings on

    Nina : “Ive seen so many spoiled rich kids doing cocaine”

    it just smacked : loaded : with MS : and now Nina : it was just a great diversion from lightweight Nina w/Silas …. I haven’t seen the scene with Sam yet…. i believe you… it’s happening… Nina is coming on

    so… just steer from her laid up… landed in the wheel chair… and it’ all a matter of time…. ignite : she ‘s becoming : all cylinders and guns ablazing

    whew!

    Shay replied

    While I personally like KM and her character of Sam, I can understand why some do not….she has coasted for a long time on her sex kitten type popularity and incredible chemistry with the males on GH….as an actress she can often be too understated and not passionate enough. Some of it is simply her laconic style, while part of it is also by choice….she plays it safe and takes very few dramatic chances. Perhaps that will change once she mixes it up with MS’s Nina….who I agree is immensely skilled in her craft. I just don’t know if I find her likeable….so far she has this simmering just below the surface sort of crazy just waiting to burst forth and it’s been rather creepy to me…..the calm before the storm, so to speak. I’m not really sure that I will find that dramatic release as appealing as a long-time Phyllis fan will. However, as long as Nina doesn’t eat Port Charles like too many of her predecessors (i.e. Sabrina and Ava) did, particularly in their introductory phases, then I can accept her in small doses. I will say one thing I respected about Stafford was that she seemed very mindful of this possibility and did not seem to want to make that same mistake when she recently spoke of her introduction to the GH canvas, hence, I am willing to have a wait and see attitude regarding her handling of Nina.

    No doubt in my mind. Billy Miller should play Jason Morgan. Jason never knew about the baby’s parentage; Sam and Jason fought hard to have a baby. Give them the chance… they were married and then the character was “killed” off. Sam is boring with Silas. Although she was married to Jason she was still an independent smart young lady and I believe Billy and Kelly will make a smokin hot couple. Give them a chance

Why don’t they just put swinging doors at each studio and join the shows. this is a bad joke. The fans of these shows will get sick of this soon and just do it .Just shut the show off. I see Phyllis and ff, I see Sonny and FF. Why doesn’t phelps just take Mo. Now that would make me watch. Almost.

    This is what I Have to Say about the actor Billy Miller..

    He has good acting chops, he can carry a scene..

    They can test him with Sam or Lizzy or somebody in their 30′s

    In regard in putting Sam and Jason back together, I think not, you might

    test her with Mishelle Strafford, but she’s to old…They might Elizabeth H. to come

    over to play the new Robin…..Just about all the fans on facebook want him to be with

    Sam….He’s 33 yrs old…If they ask me for my opinion…I keep Sam and Silas…But

    whoever play Jason, I want the person to have a relationship with Daniel Edward

    Morgan…….RC got a lot of options..Jason recast no Jason Recast….

    By the wouldn’t it be nice if Nina had a sister in Landview name????….Just have Sam

    pregnant when Jason comes back…Then we will have a STORY….

    GH was the only show I watched but not anymore.RC/FV ruined it for me. Their main focus was to put those 3 oltl with Sam, Carly & Michael. The ley they could have done was test their chemistry with other characters. I’m a big JaSam fan and I miss them. I wish SB was coming back but I will except BM as a replacement as long as it got Sam away from Silas. I am too tired of all the Y&R & GH switcheroos. I believe that there should be some type of comprise.

    I’ve been watching Y&R every day since the the pilot episode. Haven’t missed one!! Bad move on the part of the producers/decision makers. You’re shooting yourselves down by bringing all the recent changes. Ratings people, ratings…they’re going to suffer eventually. It’s difficult to accept new actors. Fans don’t like change, in case you haven’t figured it out yet. Bring Billy Miller and Michael Muhny back please! Ditch the role of Christine, she’s never been very good , bring Michelle Stafford back. It’s one thing if they’re bored playing their respective roles and want a change/challenge. But ratings take a hit. Come on! Give fans what they want!
