Ex-General Hospital hunk Steve Burton received the equivalent of a ticker tape parade today on The Talk. Burton allowed the CBS chatfest's co-hosts to officially announce his employment by sudser The Young and the Restless. The actor will be playing the role of Dylan McAvoy, war veteran and ex of Avery Clark (Jessica Collins).
Burton recently left the mega popular role of Jason Morgan on GH after 21 years, reportedly to spend more time with his family in Tennessee. He shared on The Talk that CBS Daytime is allowing him to go back and forth from Los Angeles to the land of the Grand Ole' Opry. He also revealed that he and Y&R producer Jill Farren Phelps—his former GH boss— are in talks with Sony TV about the telenovela project they've been creating with James Franco.
