Ever since actor Steve Burton abandoned the role of his character Jason Morgan, fans have been anxious about the character's future. And now speculations are running wild that Jason Morgan may soon return to the show.
Steve Burton who formerly played Jason Morgan joined the cast of "The Young and the Restless" as the recurring character Dylan. It is unlikely for him to return to the show. At the same time, Billy Miller is speculated to be a possible switch for the role of Jason Morgan in "General Hospital" that would be liked by fans. The Web site infers that this could happen because "Billy Miller's schedule is wide open," currently.
Furthermore, the report speculates that Elizabeth Hendrickson who will soon be quitting "The Young and the Restless" could be Jason Morgan's love interest Robin Scorpio in "General Hospital."
