Big report from TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan the morning after Christmas has Daytime Emmy winner and recently exited star of General Hospital, Steve Burton (Ex-Jason Morgan) signing a new deal to play a role on The Young and the Restless!
To many that news may not come as a surprise since it would re-team Burton with long time GH executive producer (who now helms Y&R) Jill Farren Phelps. In addition, it has been no secret that Phelps and Burton are business partners and even working on a telenovela project together.
As soapers know, Burton left General Hospital three months ago to move to Nashville to relocate his wife and children for a life away from Hollywood and to become involved in new endeavors. Now with this news of an impending arrival of Burton to Genoa City so soon after his departure from GH, it begs the question, was this plan in the works for awhile?
According to TVG, the report of Burton to Y&R is unconfirmed by CBS at this time. Whatever the case, if Burton is back on-screen on The Young and the Restless, who would you want him to play? Weigh-in and let us know what you think of a decision by Burton to play a brand new part on the number one soap, as opposed to returning to GH?
