It turns out that the rumor was true: Billy Miller is about to join GENERAL HOSPITAL in the role of Jason Morgan! The buzz has been building for a while now that THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS alum (he played Billy) would be assuming the role vacated by Steve Burton (now Y&R’s Dylan). The soap’s executive producer, Frank Valentini revealed the news today on Twitter after a playful banter with headwriter Ron Carlivati about some “big” GH news.
“I am really excited to be working with such a talented and acclaimed actor as Billy,” Valentini said in a statement. “Our cast is thrilled that he will be joining the GH family, and I know that he will be an amazing addition to our talented cast.”
With the presumed-dead Jason’s wife, Sam, currently getting involved with Patrick (who wasn’t crazy about his own wife, Robin, leaving her family behind to go bring Jason back to life) let’s just say that the character’s return is going to turn Port Charles upside-down!
Valentini hasn’t released details of when we can expect to see Miller first air, but we’ll definitely keep you up to date as more information is announced. How do you feel about this casting?
