Meet General Hospital‘s new Jason Morgan.
The Young and the Restless star/Emmy winner Billy Miller will take on the role of the presumed dead character, executive producer Frank Valentini confirmed on Twitter after weeks of speculation.
“I am really excited to be working with such a talented and acclaimed actor as Billy,” Valentini said in a statement. “Our cast is thrilled that he will be joining our General Hospital family, and I know that he will be an amazing addition to our talented cast.”
Emmy winner Steve Burton (now on Y&R) previously played Jason.
