“General Hospital” has been hyping up the return of Jason Morgan. It has been confirmed that Steve Burton will not reprise the role much to the dismay of several fans. Billy Miller has been the name thrown around to take over the role, but nothing has been confirmed. According to a July 2 report from Celebrity Dirty Laundry, Billy Miller has not yet signed a contract with “General Hospital.” There have been no comments about the situation, but it is being insinuated that Miller may be stalling.
Billy Miller left “The Young and the Restless” after having a blowout with executive producer Jill Farren Phelps. Fans were upset about the exit, but Miller was replaced with David Tom. Rumors have been swirling for several months about Miller being cast as Jason Morgan. The “Daytime Emmy Awards” aired just a few weeks ago, and people were talking about Miller sporting “the Jason” haircut.
Twitter has been buzzing about Billy Miller coming to “General Hospital” for weeks now. With the news of no contract signed yet, there are some unhappy fans. Jason Morgan is slated to reappear in Port Charles in just one month. This leaves very little time for glitches like a hang up with signing the contract or casting the role. While this doesn't necessarily mean Miller won't be joining the cast, it does send up signals of doubts.
If for some reason Billy Miller doesn't end up as Jason Morgan on “General Hospital,” there are several fans who will be disappointed. The role of Jason is essential to many story lines on the show and bringing him back as anyone other than Steve Burton is already controversial. As August is fast approaching, fans are hoping some news about whether or not Miller will be entering the canvas will be released.
