Soap Opera In Depth is all over Twitter saying things like this

Folks, dont ASSUME that if Billy Miller joins #GH, it'll be as Jason. He could play another part. Hed make a great Dillon, for example.

Liz, you just learned the meaning of "be careful what you wish for!" #GH

Liz is pushing her LUCK

Could be nothing r something. I would like to see, if this rumor is true, that he is Lucky or Dillion. I like how Sam has moved on. If they hadn't killed AJ, I would have liked to see the dynamic between the brothers. JJ had a great time on GH, but I think he won't be back. My favorite for Miller? Lucky. I think a nice quad would be Lucky, Liz, Nic, Britt. JMO

I'm probably in the minority but I think he would have made a good AJ too. I would like to see him go head to head with Sonny and Carly. I don't need him as Jason so we can have another ass kisser for Sonny. No thank you.

The TPTB went on twitter stating that MS was not coming to GH and luckily some fans did not believe them. It just a media smokescreen, BM is coming to GH. At least he will be a sexy JM.

The following was not tweeted at anyone in particular. A fan simply tweeted out to the universe ...

Is this Billy Miller rumor to #GH true?


And ... she got a reply from Doug Davidson who portrays Paul Williams on Y&R:

@Wendy_50

That's what I heard... But I don't know for sure. He's an awesome actor and an asset to every show he's on. GH would be lucky!

I don't know if its related but Thaoo Penglis said today that he was asked back. Who knows if its related to Jason or perhaps he's back to play out Nathan's paternity with Obrecht or BOTH.

I hope he's Dillon Quartermaine. Can u imagine the hilarious and witty scenes Billy Miller's Dillon would have with Tracy and Ned. I actually tweeted RC last year, when Billy Miller left Y&R, that they should bring him on as a Dillon recast. Billy Miller could reinvent the character like he did with Billy Abbott on Y&R.

I just know I do not want another Jason. I love Billy, and I would love to see him as Lucky or Dillion. I have just had enough of all these people surronding Sonny. Billy Miller is far more talented than just an ass kisser. If he was quirky like Dillion, think of him with Maxie. They would have the history with Georgie. He would be a Q. He would have history with Lulu. So many oppurtunties

Dillon would be better since he'd fit into the age group that is barely represented (late teens, 20s and available). As for Jason... No.

Billy Miller would be a great Jason Morgan. I'd love it if he came back with his Jason Quartermaine personality and memories back. Would make a recast more easy imho. He could work as Lucky too. Seems too old for Dillon. I don't think there's a story for Dillon at this point, except maybe for Maxie.

I want him on the show as Jason Morgan or Lucky Spencer. Either way, I hope he gets screen time with Rebecca Herbst

He's a good actor, but I think he's a bit over rated.
Im curious to know what you think about MS as Nina now that she's had a few scenes .
I'm a bit biased because I saw Stafford's shitty acting in her final years on YR- the miscarriage scene. Her scenes with ME were over-the-top, especially , the moronic way she talked.

However, some of her scenes remind of Stafford's scenes in the 90s when she was manipulating Danny.... Her acting peak-which is good. Therefore, I will give her more time before I say she is a hit or a miss.

Don't get me wrong---if Billy Miller is any good (I have zero knowledge of CBS soaps) I am not opposed to having a talented actor on GH. However I can't help but feel that Port Charles needs another character roaming around like a fish needs a damn bicycle. If he is coming back as a recast, I am leaning towards wanting him as Dillon. With AJ gone, there's more of a need IMO for more Quartermaines who act like Q's and live at the mansion (Jason is a Q by blood but he ceased being a part of their stories ages ago). They need someone for Michael to interact with at ELQ, and there are rumors we will be seeing more of Ned this summer so if that's true it would be great to see the brothers together. And frankly after Sonny killed AJ I'm beyond ready for his character to have a rest---not to have his number one enabler back in town.

For some reason despite my lack of knowledge of Billy Miller I just can't envision Lucky coming back to Port Charles anytime soon.

I really dislike this trend of soaps recasting their aged-legacy characters with younger/cheaper versions.

My first thought when I read this was that it was David Tom.... That would be a huge mistake... I LOOOOVE the idea of Billy Miller joining, and frankly I don't even care who he plays, I love his acting and he is a friggin hunk!

Michelle Stafford's acting as Nina has been very,very good. Michael Easton's has been stilted, and very poor acting choices---most of the time looking as if he's pissed off lol.

I think David Tom might work as Dillon or Lucky either one.

Dillon is too young for Billy Miller, but is the perfect age for Lucky. With all the stories with the Spencer family, I think he will fill in perfectly. I love Jonathan Jackson, I really do, but I do not think he will be coming back to GH anytime soon

GH has a large cast nonetheless they use it very well..
I like the rotation of stories..
The actors like their time to pursue other projects and GH gives the time to them to do that, by having a larger rotating cast..

Y&R does not do that and so they lost MS and BM and others over that fact they are bound in and not free to do other projects..

Then again, Y&R plays the same handful of characters everyday near without fail, never anything or anyone new to give it a lift..
The same stories and people, everyday.

FV would never cast Billy Miller as AJ or Jason..
It is rare a known soap actor, a star, replaces another star on a different soap..
soap stars can go to another soaps in a roll created for them, but never to replace a star/character with a star known character...

new rolls are offered them..
no vet star wants to replace another vet star character.. ..

unless "Nashville" tanks, i can't see JJ returning to GH... (and I'm totally loving him there!)

with Billy Miller I've never watched him act and googled to see what he looks like. if the photos that came up are relatively recent, he looks like he could pull off the age difference. A recast of Lucky is possible although JJ and GV are on different shows right now.
