RUMOR REPORT: DC: Is Steve Burton Thisclose to Walking Away From GH?

Don't shoot the blogger. Multiple sources are telling me that General Hospital leading man Steve Burton is thisclose to leaving the ABC sudser. Burton began playing the role of Alan Quartermaine's (Stuart Damon) illegitimate son Jason in 1991.

In 1995, a car accident caused by his half brother AJ (Sean Kanan) left Jason brain damaged. This led to the character all but cutting ties with the ritzy, dysfunctional Q's and embarking on a life of mob-fueled crime as the wildly popular hitman Jason Morgan.



"Steve and ABC have been negotiating for quite some time and it doesn't look like he's going to stay," says one mole. " It's also no secret he's been talking about taking his family and moving back to Tennessee."

Keep checking back with Daytime Confidential as this story develops!

The last 5 years he has displayed none of the things that made the audience care about Jason. His brain was gone and about five years ago his heart seemed to go too. He used to be a really compelling character but I haven't enjoyed his work on the show in years.

I like to think everything is his dream (nightmare) since the accident in 1995. (Is that the right year?)

I think Somewhere in the last 5 years a lot of his acting ability left with his brain. Either that or he has been going through the motions so long he simply doesn't care anymore.

My reaction to current Y&R ...

He hasn't looked interested in his work since 2005/2006. I could care less if he stays or goes at this point to be honest. Only thing I liked him for was Liason, but the writers are determined to stick him with Sam.

Bitches be crazy! Haters are gonna hate!

SBu is possibly leaving?! :wave: :whee: :yahoo: :yahoo:

His best "acting" traits were his eye blinks & "Box o' Pain"

I think I'll do a happy dance....... LMAO

I really don't want SBu to leave, not now when Liason are closer than ever. But I'm preparing myself that he is. I'm just waiting for the announcement. I think he wants out, that he wants to be in Tennessee full-time with his family. I completely understand, I just hate the timing.

Not going to be miss by me. In fact that's the best damn news I have heard in a long time. Hope this is true cause it frees my LIZ and SAM from the Borg. I will say I hope he isn't killed off since there are hardly any Quatermaines left.

I hope the 2 get carted off together to jail! Or we get to see Jason die a violent and painful death. That's what happens to mob goons!!!
