Can't wait to see what happens next. :0 Appreciate you guys. 25 Responses Cyberologist May 6, 2011 Of course he did…I guess this means its not getting cancelled. Log in to Reply Marezi May 6, 2011 Awwwww &%&^$#@(*&^&&*$@#&?”:+!!!!!! In English……..Dang it. Log in to Reply GHfan-4now May 6, 2011 Not. Shocked. Log in to Reply JAQ May 6, 2011 Good for him to re-sign!! I hope when GH shuts down, he sue’s disney for ‘breech of contract’ If in fact any of this is true. Remember what show we are dealing with here. Publicity stunts and LIES are what they are known for. For what it is worth, I hope I am wrong. But I doubt it. Log in to Reply Y2Jin99 May 6, 2011 meaningless next article says GH reaches record lows or something about lows so they will justify why GH is next to be canceled. Log in to Reply Marezi May 6, 2011 I am sure Steve knows GH is going to go off the air. I am also sure they (TIIC) have their butts covered if they cancel early. Hopefully the man is not stupid enough to not ask these questions and say “ok I will stay for ending of GH”. And I am sure he is planning how to make a living once the show is gone. From what I understand he and his family will be in TN about six months this year so I would say that he is getting prepared for “Life After Soaps”. I only read the posts about this I do not go to his site or anything to “learn all there is to learn about SB”..LOL Log in to Reply keanna May 6, 2011 Happy he resigned, but I doubt GH will be on that whole year!!! Log in to Reply appleridge May 6, 2011 Yeah Plus All Actors Contracts Have 13 week Outs. They Just Have To be Notified At Least 4 Weeks Prior To end of that Cycle that they are being let go. Stuart Damon said this once on an episode Of SoapTalk Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 May 6, 2011 Great. I get to enjoy his tight black shirts and hypnotic blue eyes for at least another year!! I know Jason has his share of haters, but I am definitely a Steve Burton fan. Log in to Reply lfad May 6, 2011 Gotta get that money while he can. Log in to Reply lindajeansantana May 6, 2011 I hope it is on for another year! Im still pissed at them for canceling OLTL! Log in to Reply curacaoman May 6, 2011 And Erika Slezak and Robin Strasser are out of a job. NOT FAIR! Log in to Reply pumpkin May 6, 2011 I never liked the characters of the mob stuff. I just don’t get him or the others. From his standpoint, he is making money so why not. Log in to Reply josser May 7, 2011 Pumpkin, You’re right. At this point in his career, there is no place he could go to and make the same money. Unfortunately, Burton doesn’t have a substantial list of non-soap roles. His acting reel is all GH. ABC never helped him get guesting spots on any of its shows. This is the same fate for most of the stars of the show. I’m sure the stars all make mid to high six figures. They’ll have to compete with all of the other actors in Hollywood. Look at all of the actors for ATWT, GL, Passions, etc. How few of them landed steady acting gigs in primetime, daytime, or film? A handful? Log in to Reply maxsmom May 7, 2011 SB has said he likes the family life he can have with the steady employment of GH, he was successful away from the show but didn’t like the travel of moviemaking. Mr. Burton has always appeared to be a good man, I haven’t liked Jason for a long time but I am happy for SB. Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 May 7, 2011 Steve Burton could probably afford to move to Tennessee with his family and live a quiet, happy life. I am pretty sure he has healthy savings. He has even discussed his desire to relocate his family one day away from Hollyweird. Let’s not ASSUME that he doesn’t have other job options, because NONE of us knows what his options are or what he has or doesn’t have in his hip pocket. Many actors stay because they enjoy their work and want to keep doing it, not because there aren’t other options out there for them. Log in to Reply miztee246 May 7, 2011 [quote=alstonboy4315]Great.

Actually, I think they write Jason so that he is far more shrewd than Sonny, although Sonny is supposed to be the boss. Log in to Reply JAQ May 7, 2011 SB could very easily retire at this point in his career. For him to go to work, where the job is easy, they kiss his azz, he makes good money, why not stay until the end?? Whenever that is. A contract is good only for as long as the show is on. So for him to tweet about signing a one year contract has no merit to me at all. He stated he can’t wait to see what happens next. I bet he can’t. Either can I. Log in to Reply GHteenybopper May 8, 2011 YAY for Steve Burton! Log in to Reply Jon May 8, 2011 Crap! Another year of that air hog! Good for Mr Burton, though. Log in to Reply JAQ May 8, 2011 Unfortunately the show won’t make another year. Log in to Reply WickedThoughts May 8, 2011 [quote=Jon]Crap! Another year of that air hog! Good for Mr Burton, though.[/quote] I so agree with the air hog comment. Nothing against SBu, but I get tired of the Jason show. Besides not being the sharpest tool in the shed, he’s got no personality, no conversation, no goals other than polishing his glock. Other than the outside package I don’t understand the popularity of his character. As far as SBu financial situation. He promotes Monavie juice and it sounds like its been very lucrative for him. Also if you follow him on Twitter he is constantly shilling his Port Chuck CDs. In fact, these days that’s about all he talks about. I finally had to unfollow him…If I want to sit through commercials I’ll turn on the TV. Log in to Reply SoapActor May 9, 2011 No I do not think so .. things will settle and all will be back to normal soon … Log in to Reply Marezi May 9, 2011 Just noticed in this picture this is what people call his constipation look. He always has it on this show. LOL Sorry to his fans but it is so true. Log in to Reply js3557 May 9, 2011 SoapActor – Whatever it is that you are smoking…send some to me!
