General Hospital Spoilers June Shocker: Billy Miller Cast As Jason Morgan - Update as Fans React

Remember all of those articles CDL wrote speculating that The Young and the Restless alum Billy Miller joining the cast of General Hospital as Jason Morgan? Well, it turns out we were right, according to TV guide’s soap opera guru Michael Logan. On June 12th, Michael Logan Tweeted, “Billy Miller. General Hospital. Done deal? This is what I’m hearing. #GH.”

Logan’s tweet supports the article in the June 23rd edition of Soap Opera Digest, which teased, “Sources say that GH is close to recasting a pivotal role with a major star.” The pivotal role is obviously referring to Jason Morgan and the “major star” is Billy Miller.

Now, what is interesting is that Logan didn’t mention what character Billy Miller would be signing on as. So, there is a slight chance he may pop up in Port Charles as someone other than Jason Morgan; however, the odds of that happening are pretty slim. The reason rumors have been running rampant that Miller would be playing Jason Morgan are because he is a perfect fit for the role. If thousands of fans noticed that then TPTB at General Hospital most likely did as well.

Billy Miller will be the second The Young and the Restless alum to be picked up by General Hospital in just a matter of weeks. When Jill Farren Phelps took over CBS’s daytime drama The Young and the Restless, cast members began dropping like flies because they were miserable working under Phelps’ command, couldn’t get along with her, or were fired by her.

Soap fans were shocked when it was revealed Michelle Stafford had been signed on to General Hospital after she ended her stint on Y&R. Stafford switching over to GH gave fans a sense of hope that some of their other favorite Y&R actors that had recently left the soap would be heading over to Port Charles as well. The fact that GH has scooped up not one, but two superstars that Phelps lost… is huge!

How excited are you to see Billy Miller take over the role of Jason Morgan as General Hospital? Now that General Hospital has scooped up Billy Miller and Michelle Stafford, does that mean Michael Muhney will be soon to follow? Let us know what you think about the latest cast shake-up in the comment section below!

Fans at Soap Opera Spy are super excited about this development!

I am excited about this! If Michael Muhney follows Billy Miller and Michelle Stafford to Port Charles, this could be the biggest trifecta EVER!

Billy Miller is a GREAT actor. GH can only keep getting better, and better. I look forward to seeing him play Jason. Even though I am new to GH and never saw SB play Jason, I am sure Billy Miller can play Jason or any other character they let him play. Same with Michael Muhney. MM can play any role and do a fantastic job. BM and MM and MS were my three favorites on Y&R. If only I could see all three of them in Port Charles would make me one happy camper. Miss my Muhney but so happy for my Billy Miller. Only love for him and Michael.

Guess I am heading to Port Charles!

I love Billy. And if Steve ain’t coming back Billy will make a wonderful Jason. Y&R made a huge mistake letting him go….

Well I guess it’s official…. I walked when MM walked and started watching Days, I love it!!!
Guess I’m going to have to add another hour to my DVR day!!! Days & General here I come!!!!

YOU SUCK Y&R letting our Billy go… guess I’ll switch and start watching GH now after I’ve been a Y&R fan 20+ years. Love you Billy Miller.

JFP should be dying right now! GH is going to get so good!! Ratings, ratings, ratings!!! Yay, GH!!

Wish Steve had returned, but Billy Miller is AWESOME! I think it will be good. But please don’t cast Hendricks as Robin (as rumored), she doesn’t have the depth.

This is great news and we hope that GH goes for that trifecta (Michelle Stafford, Billy Miller) and finds a place for Michael Muhney in Port Charles!

    GH: Cast? NuDillon or NuJason?

    Michael Logan of TV Guide tweeted:
    Billy Miller. General Hospital. Done deal? This is what I’m hearing.
    Could Miller possibly be our NUJason? Steve Burton (ex-Jason) at one time told SID,

    “When all that talk was going on [about plans for a recast] , I said to myself ‘Billy
    would be perfect.’ It’s a character I played for a long time, and I have a huge
    emotional connection to him and the people there. It’d be weird to see, but they have
    to do what they have to do. I understand that.”
    Of course, there is the possibility he is slated for another role (such as Dillon
    Quartermaine, a role that has been rumored on and off to be in the que for
    recasting). On the other hand, Miller has certainly buffed enough to play NUJason .
    Emmy Winner Miller (he won twice, and has been nominated again this year) left the
    role of Billy Abbott on The Young and the Restless in January

  2. Carole Young says:

    Not sure how I feel. I love Billy Miller, but as Jason????? Interested to see if lovable Billy has a guiet dark side..

  3. Steve says:

    Lucky would also be a pivotal role and would have more to do, since Sam & Silas already have Nina to keep them busy. Doubt TPTB would bring Jason back so soon after Nina you here.

  4. peoples choice says:

    How thirsty is ron.cav. of gh is. What happen to just old fashion writing a good storyline. Instead of sitting around waiting for stars to leave. Seem as they have to steal star to boost ratings. Probably ynr Chloes next. Ha.ha. what happen your casting people cant find their on stars. Stick to at least putting on your thinking caps and create stories lines thats actually make sense.

  5. cWb says:

    Billy Miller on GH is great news!!! The show needs more male characters in his age range. I just don’t see him as Jason. Too young and full of life. Leave Jason Morgan dead until Steve Burton returns!!!
    Billy Miller should reinvent the role of Lucky Spencer or Dillon Q. He’d be a much better fit and both of those roles are desperately needed!!!

  6. don says:

    Go Miller Go! Take the deal at GH it’s a good deal at least there they will treat you with respect.

    • Sarasam says:

      But the fans won’t be so kind. Not with him or the writers. Steve has played the role of Jason since 1997. There is no room for another recast. G.H. needs to listen to fans because they certainty can’t write a NEW story line and keep bringing back dead people that have been dead sense the 90’s. Replacing Jason would be a major mistake. Your going to lose long time fans of G.H. Bring in NEW roles and Don’t try to replace the icon roles that no one can replace.

      • susan says:

        Your out of your mind. I love the character of Jason, and Steve Burton refuses to come back. Billy Miller is a great actor, and even resembles Steve Burton. Speak for yourself, not all fans, don’t want Jason Back. I want Jason back, and I am a huge fan of the character. I am very happy that Billy Miller will be a recast.

  7. Denise says:

    If true this is amazing to say the least.I only started watching GH at the end of January After leaving Y&R after 30 some yrs. Just Michelle joining is great, Billy Miller WOW!! GH should take over 1st place. Just think if they added Michael Muhney, The number of fans will double at the very least. I hope the writers give the actors the foundation to show how Great they truly are!!

  8. Stacey says:

    Please God Let Billy Miller Be JASONMORGAN don’t let Frank and Ron have the intellect of a brain dead bird

  9. PassionQueen77 says:

    I agree Billy J Miller is the perfect fit for Jason Morgan. It looks like Billy J Miller doesn’t want to go back to the young and the restless. I don’t blame him. Jill Farren Phelps has ruined the number 1 soap opera of the history. Billy J Miller would be a perfect match for Sam. Silas says that he wants to be with Sam. Maybe Nina would probably stalk Silas in the next couple of months. It is up to Silas of what he wants to do. This show gives me goosebumps everytime i watched it.

    • Sarasam says:

      Steve Berton is the only person to play Jason Morgan. This Billy guy will not compare to Steve. He is not even close to playing the role of Jason. That’s why Y&R fans don’t like him. He is JASON. He played the role for at least 17 years. There is no replacing him. Follow him (Billy) some where else. We don’t want him as Jason. Sorry!

  10. don says:

    It is a good news that if true that Miller is joining GH it would be a big blow for Y&R and I would not be surprised if David Tom is joining the GH the show as a new character or as a recast of Dillon or Lucky. Welcome to GH if the rumor is true and good luck in the new role Billy Miller u are very talented and u will succeced to bring Jason Morgan in a new level.

  11. […] the part of Jason Morgan on General Hospital. However as CDL reported recently the word is out that Billy Miller has been cast as Jason Morgan on General […]

  12. Mackenzie says:

    If this is true that Billy Miller is indeed at GH, please have this storyline make sense.. what ever character he plays. Ron and his crew are destroying the show. Also I’m betting If Billy is cast, then Elizabeth Hendrickson won’t be far behind.

  13. x-Y&R-fan says:

    Jill and Josh cleaned house and now GH knows to snag the actually talented actors/Y&R veterans ie.) Rylan, Stafford now possibly Miller. Wouldn’t be surprised GH is in talks with Lindsay Bushman or Kevin G. Schmidt

  14. […] have some truth to them. We are really hoping that isn’t the case with this one. A persistent General Hospital rumor that just won’t seem to die is that Sonny Corinthos will be exiting GH soon — so that […]

  15. Christina Parker says:

    Don’t know how I feel about it. I have never watched GH and hate the idea of having to figure out what is going on with the storylines, but May have too. I also am really disappointed that the soap super couple, Villy is gone. Ugh!

  16. Mary Crawford says:

    I will go to gh where my Billy Miller is and all the other stars so bye bye young and the restless and hello General hospital ,???

  18. stephanie says:

    Fire the battle axe!!!! She should have been black listed long ago!!!

  19. […] Judging by the reaction on the internet from Y&R fans today, the majority seem happy that Eileen Davidson is returning to the CBS soap opera as Ashley Abbott. Eileen Davidson is a great actress, but there is no way her presence can make up for the loss of Michael Muhney, Michelle Stafford, and Billy Miller. […]

  20. TAS says:

    The higher ups @ Y&R are IDIOTS!! they do NOT care or listen to what the fans want, they have about waited too long to straighten up the bloody mess that JFP aka “The Soap Killer” has made! that ship is sinking! Come on 3 Billys within 6 months! what a joke!! They are losing all the great fan favs! but really it’s like they DO NOT CARE

  21. TAS says:

    Just as long time GH fans like Burton as only Jason, we feel same about Michael as Adam. Burton has stated that he is very happy where he is (much to my regret) and does not WANT to replay Jason so that is HIS fault not Millers. Billy Miller and Michael Muhney are BOTH great actors and for all those IDIOTS that are saying Michael is guilty put money where the BIG mouth is. Rumors no legal action and he was BACK on the set hardly think that would be allowed if he were the monster rag-mags claim!

  22. TAS says:

    CDL is cool TMZ is pure rag-mag!

  23. Lisaka says:

    GH ended when they lost Fab 3: Burton, Guza, and Phelps. I had been a fan since 1980 but not for a year now. The story line is ridiculous and desperate. I feel sorry for the actual talented veteran actors that are left to suffer through. What a shame!

  24. Sarasam says:

    I don’t think so

  25. PassionQueen77 says:

    I agree with you with everything. Jason Morgan should be played by Steve Barton. Michael Muhney would be way too old to play his character. Billy J Miller would play an ok Jason Morgan is what i meant from before. I just forgot to say that Billy J Miller would play an ok Jason Morgan. I used to the show when Steve Barton was on General Hospital a while back and he played Jason very well. Jason used to work at the bar right. I am trying to get my memory back. Billy J Miller could play Billy Abbott anytime he wants to. But he doesn’t want to come back to the young and the restless because of JFP. Jill Farren Phelps storylines has been dragging out for a year which really sucks.

  26. Bellagirliegirl says:

    Disagree. Love Steve he is the only Jason; but seriously the story lines at GH lack without Jason!! Jason needs to be recast already…Danny needs to know his Dad and Sam needs to be Sam rough/tough and pushing her limits!! GH-please recast JASON!!!

  27. Sheila Lynn Parker says:

    i miss billy miller so i hope he goes to GH and soon

  28. Laurie Havens says:

    Denise, I know this is an old post, but I agree with you 100,000%! I actually read a comment recently where someone was very upset over this casting and they were ripping the current regime to shreds because “they probably just signed him to get ratings”.. Those were her exact words. OMG! Of course they signed him for ratings! Ratings keeps them and everyone working and us having a blast & enjoying the show. This ;man has won 3 Emmys in the past 4 years, including this year for best leading actor! This year, 4 of the 5 actors nominated were from Y&R and the other was Jason Thompson who plays Patrick on GH. He has many fans. Not to mention Y&R’s viewership was he highest in years, around 5 million. They lost around 700,000 viewers after Jill ran off or fired these fan favorites. That close to 15% of their viewers!
