    Love this idea. Steve is a great actor and very handsome. He'd make a great love interest for someone. Wonder what major role he'll play?

    Just guessing...he looks to me like he could play the part of a military guy...perhaps Avery's Dillon is not dead, just presumed dead as an MIA. I can see these two together. If so, what a delima for her; her and Nick have so much going for them now & are so cute and comfortable with each other.

    Could this end up a titt-for-tat....if this is the old flame, perhaps he and Phyllis will fall for each other?

    STEVE BURTON played long suffering mobster Jason Morgan on GH ... he supposedly left GH to spend more time with his family ....

    I agree with PAT123401 ... the show needs to concentrate on getting it's current cast and storylines in order ... along with a host of other issues that have only gotten worse under the new regime ...

    Still, in the world of Hollywood, it's who-you-know etc and given his "love" of JFP, this isn't surprising

    Love Steve, but wish he would return to the role of Jason

    He would be great with Avery, oh I hope that is it.
    Obviously the writers love Avery cause she gets tons of screen time but a real actualy storyline would be nice for her.
    Oh ya, bring it on. Yes, I loved him as Jason but if he isn't on GH then Y&R is great. Love him!

    I miss him on GH but looking forward to seeing him YR I just really hope we see him in dressed in colors. No more BLACK! I do hope he does return to GH if its still on the air in 5 or so years to reunite with Sam and his son.

    Could this be "Sharon Meets Someone New"

    His eyes are so blue...:))
    I could see him and Sharon hook up because he reminds me of Dickolas.
