On today’s edition of “The Talk,” former “General Hospital” star Steve Burton (ex-Jason Morgan) confirmed, what Soap Opera Network had been hearing for the past several months, that he is joining CBS’ “The Young and the Restless.” The actor begins filming tomorrow, January 8. He first airs on Tuesday, January 29. He will portray the contract role of Dylan McAvoy, a rugged ex-soldier with a secret upon arriving in Genoa City.
While discussing his joining, Burton stated he decided to return to daytime television because of Jill Farren Phelps, who executive produced “GH” from 2000 through 2011. Phelps currently EP’s “Y&R.”
As part of the on going promotion of “General Hospital” and its 50th anniversary season through social networking, actress Kirsten Storms (Maxie Jones) will be tweeting live with fans during today’s East Coast broadcast of the ABC drama series.
In today’s episode, Maxie freaks out and Mac (John York) counsels her to be honest about her feelings. Is she backing out of her promise to be a surrogate for Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) and Lulu (Julie Marie Berman)? Maxie makes a decision and tells the hopeful couple that she has something important to tell them.
