General Hospital's Steve Burton Re-Signs!




Great news for Steve Burton (Jason) fans. ABC Soaps In Depth reports on twitter that the popular General Hospital actor has inked a new deal with the show. This comes on the heels of  Burton confirming to Michael Fairman at the recent GH fan club luncheon that despite rumors of him refusing to do so, if warranted, he would take a pay cut.

I didn't realize that Burton ever did cheese cake photos.

Yay? Don't really understand why so many people like him. I don't watch GH, but the times I have, he's rather, umm, not good. Lol. Maybe I'm wrong. But it's still good to see a vet re-sign, no matter who or what show. It's like a breath of oxygen to the life-support daytime is on, if you go that far. Wink

This is good news. I hope to see the real Jason Morgan on screen by the end of August. This pod Jason has totally sucked for the last 8 months.

I am happy that Steve has resigned and now I will be even more happy when Becky resigns. I am praying that this will lead to a Liason reunion........

i have been a fan of his (usually with liz) on and off over the years...but off for the last couple. i am tired of the mob - i would actually pay money if they got rid of jason, sonny and all mob characters.

next - why post this pic of him...he doesn't do beefcake - so it gives some false hope that he may consent to do a love scene on a freaking soap opera. we all know that isn't gonna happen.

He should become Jason Quartemaine again. I mean they re-write history extremely often. And think of the potential ELQ drama considering that Jake is Alan's true heir. And have him torn between Sam and Liz!

Big smile This is AWESOME news! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU to Steve, first and foremost, as well as the GH exec's and ABC/Disney for making this happen! Steve/Jason is my "why" for watching GH. 'Looking forward to some much needed, richly deserved, GOOD storyline and ROMANCE for Jason (whether it be JaSam, Liason, or ???) in the coming months!

I hope that Steve re-signing means GH will be giving us the real Jason Morgan back, because this pod Jason who has been on my screen for the last several months just won't cut it.

I am glad for GH that Steve has resigned, but I hope we aren't subjected to a remake of Jason and Sam. He is my favorite actor on the show, but I can honestly say I was ready for him to try something different---like a new show. I could see him on Y/R--anybody else???

Golly gee willikers, I hope this means he'll be able to get some sorely-needed screen time now! Those airhogs Leslie Charleson and John Ingle need to take a backseat! *rolling eyes*

finally caught up on this past week and though jason and therefore steve is the reason i watch, he was on everyday and had scenes with almost every lead on the show. he looks exhausted. i hope he got his shorter week and a vacation to boot.

as a whole it was a good week but Lainey should be doing a brisk business in this town, Robin should still be in therapy, then there's Claudia, Alexis (her poor choice in men), Carly (her miscarriage, Micheal's coma her and Sonny's codependency), Nicholas (he kept a brain tumor to continue seeing a vision of his dead fiancee, he is dating the fiancee's twin and he doesn't miss his son), The Qs (all the deaths), and of course Sam, if we are to believe it was temporary insanity which led to her endangering Jake.

ps. why do some posters call jake cake?

I guess this is good news. But, Jason sans Liz, holds little interest for me.

While I'm happy for all the Jason fans, to me this means we'll never be rid of the Sonny and Jason show. Sad

maxsmom: "Cake" isn't a nickname for Jake, it's Cameron and Jake's squish name. Yeah...children have squish names now, lol

I'm glad for all the Steve/Jason fans that he's re-signed, but the show should really cut back on the Carly/Jason/Sonny time. Cutting their time by 20% will give other actors the opportunity for screentime and story. Balance!!

Go JaSam!!!!

It doesn't really seem like it is the Carly /Sonny/ Jason show anymore. Unless, you count Claudia as Carly. Laura Wright isn't hogging up airtime like Sarah Brown. Claudia is on way more.
