There are a lot of cast shake-ups occurring on our daytime soap operas, it’s nearly impossible to keep track of what actors are coming and going. One could argue, Y&R producer Jill Farren Phelps could be to blame over all of the Young and the Restless alums jumping ship, but that’s open to interpretation. In a recent issue of ABC Soaps in Depth the magazine speculated that Billy Miller could be joining the General Hospital cast as Jason Morgan, and we can’t get over how awesome of a role that would be for him.
Billy Miller played the part of Billy Abbott on CBS’s The Young and the Restless for six years, until he had a disagreement with producer Jill Farren Phelps over taking time off from work, and as a result he was replaced by David Tom.
Robin Scorpio-Drake recently abandoned her husband Patrick and daughter Emma on General Hospital to leave Port Charles and save Jason Morgan, who is actually not dead-just frozen (we’ve given up trying to make sense of the modern medical miracles on GH). Robin’s exit from GH created a very real possibility that the character of Jason Morgan will be returning to Port Charles sooner than later. However, Steve Burton has long since abandoned General Hospital and signed on to a recurring role on The Young and the Restless, as Dylan. Steve Burton is now unavailable to play the part of Jason Morgan, but Billy Miller’s schedule is wide open, and we think he’d be an amazing Jason Morgan!
If Billy Miller takes on the role of Jason Morgan on General Hospital, he can even bring is ex Y&R wife Elizabeth Hendrickson with him. Hendrickson played the part of Chloe on The Young and the Restless, Billy Abbott’s ex-wife. Elizabeth recently revealed that she was leaving Y&R when her contract ends. Billy and Chelsea had epic chemistry on The Young and the Restless, and we would love to see them together again. How great would it be Hendrickson took on the role of Robin and Miller took on the role of Jason?
With Kimberly McCulough (Robin) and Steve Burton (Jason) both no longer members of the GH cast, who would you like to see playing the parts of Jason and Robin when they return to Port Charles? Of course bringing either actor over to GH would be great – but for sure casting Billy or Michael Muhney as Jason would be a wild hit. But Robin replaced, Kimberley McCullough has been with GH forever. That might not go over any better than David Tom replacing Billy Miller did on Y&R.
Well interestingly enough this potential movement of Y&R stars to GH has not gone over as well as we expected with Soap Opera Spy Facebook fans:
I would love Billy Miller as Jason. I’m not so sure about Michael Muhney in that role.
No….I’d stop watching GH if they did that. MM would be a great Jason! Elizabeth is to full of herself to be Robin.
Billy Miller not MM . Yuck! Elizabeth for Robin, no way! Am really happy that she’s leaving Y & R! MM could well be Jason.
It’s hard to predict the future but attempting to is fun. It is evident that Jason is alive, albeit frozen, and this is the perfect situation for TPTB to cast a soap favorite like BM or BB in that role. In fact one comment from SOS suggest that either Y&R castoff would do a great job.
Both MB and MM would make a great Jason!
Who would you like to see replace Jason Morgan upon his return to Port Charles?
