While it’s still unclear who Steve Burton will play on General Hospital, we’re asking a question based on an undeniable fact–only one person can play Jason Morgan!
Two Decades of JMo
For 22 years, Steve Burton played Jason on General Hospital. Burton took the character from genial Quartermaine Golden Boy to brooding mob enforcer, Quartermaine to Morgan.
He and Kelly Monaco (Sam Morgan) had some sizzling chemistry, and he and Sonny (Maurice Benard) were a pretty much perfect pair too.
Then in 2012 came the shocking news that Burton would vacate the role he seemed so happy in and that fans loved.
More shocking news followed that of Burton’s decision to leave GH. The role would be recast with Billy Miller, who had played Billy Abbott on The Young and the Restless to as much fan adulation and with as much seeming satisfaction as Burton on GH.
Recasting iconic soap roles is always a big gamble, right, dear Soap Cities readers? How could anyone possibly fill the shoes of a fan fave actor in a role they’ve put their indelible stamp on?
But Billy Miller did the almost impossible! He not only made the role his own, but fans embraced him in it.
