Is General Hospital Alum Steve Burton Heading to The Young and the Restless?

Well, that didn't take long! Reliable sources tell TV Guide Magazine that Emmy winner Steve Burton, former star of ABC's General Hospital, has signed up for a major role on CBS' The Young and the Restless. The gig, due to start soon, will have the insanely popular actor working once again for his ex-GH boss Jill Farren Phelps.

While the news, still unconfirmed by CBS, is certainly fantastic it's not exactly out of left field: Burton and Phelps are longtime friends and business associates (they're currently working together on a telenovela project) so it wasn't hard to imagine Burton someday popping up in Genoa City. C'mon, we all expected it! But so soon?

Burton only left GH three months ago, claiming he didn't want to live in L.A. anymore and relocated his wife and kids to Nashville for a better quality of life. Thus his willingness to work in L.A. again so quickly is a puzzler. Was there more to his decision to quit GH than he initially let on? Did Phelps, who is under orders to trim the Y&R budget, oust Stephen Nichols (Tucker) in order to afford Burton? And what kind of role is Burton going to play? Will it be a good guy for a change of pace, or will he remain on the dark side like his GH character, hit man Jason Morgan?

I care about Avery, and I doubt I'm the only one.
I thought her military guy was dead, that's why she has his dog tags.

DC is reporting Steve starts taping soon..

Who didn't see this coming? TV Guide's Michael Logan is reporting former General Hospital star Steve Burton is returning to soaps, just not the one that made him a household name.
Burton is reuniting with his former GH boss Jill Farren Phelps on The Young and the Restless! So much for Steve-O longing for the quiet life in good ol' Nashville...

Burton and Phelps are reportedly also working on a telenovela with James Franco. No word on what role Burton will play on Y&R. Our money is on Dillon, the mysterious ex Avery (Jessica Collins) keeps bringing up! Look for the actor to start taping soon.

I completely forgot Avery is in the process of getting a backstory with an ex. Ugh. So it's going to pretty much be like Jason Morgan showing up in Genoa City.

Hmm, Carmine's older mobster brother..."Bitches better have my money!" OR Avery's war boo Dylan. Here comes a Dylan/Avery/Nick/Sharon quad. The latter is more likely.

I wonder would have the same wardrobe he had on GH, black tee shirt, jeans, and motorcycle boots.
I hope the story is just a red herring because SB is really not needed for the Y&R.

So much for the "retirement".

I'm pissed. He lied to the GH fans.

Avery is a nobody, so why bring on another nobody to stick in her orbit? Sharon needs someone new .

My reaction to current Y&R ...

Definitely can see them heading in a Dylan/Sharon/Nick/Avery direction.
