Who Is Steve Bur­ton Go­ing To Play?

ABC Soaps In Depth - - Ins & Outs -

With Steve Bur­ton set to ap­pear any day now, ev­ery­one is spec­u­lat­ing about whether or not he’ll play Ja­son, but no one’s ac­tu­ally talk­ing… be­cause they can’t!

“I have no idea how they are bring­ing Steve back,” Kelly Monaco (Sam) ad­mit­ted at her fan club event. “The writ­ers have been so tight-lipped, and there are [non-dis­clo­sure agree­ments]. I have five dif­fer­ent ver­sions in my head of what could po­ten­tially hap­pen! All I know is that Billy Miller and I have worked our asses off [to rein­vent Ja­son and Sam’s re­la­tion­ship] for the past three years. I’ve been so blessed, and I’ve had so much fun work­ing with Billy that I hate to see that change.

“But don’t for­get what I had with Steve’s Ja­son, too,” she added. “I haven’t seen Steve, out­side of the Em­mys a cou­ple months ago, in over five years, so I’m ner- vous. I’m weirded out! I was think­ing Steve was gone, he had left the build­ing, dropped the mic. I put that to rest and found peace and had to move on.”

With view­ers riled up over the mys­tery sur­round­ing Bur­ton’s re­turn — he re­ported to the set for the first time on Au­gust 14 — ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer Frank Valen­tini has fans right where he wants them! “It’s fun to guess,” the exec tells In Depth. “Why would you want to know what’s hap­pen­ing or know what the one or two pos­si­bil­i­ties are?

“And by the way, I don’t think any­body’s fig­ured it out yet,” he adds. “Be­cause it can’t just be about Steve, and it can’t just be about Sonny — it has to be about ev­ery­one. This hu­man be­ing is com­ing back into town, and it’s go­ing to af­fect ev­ery­body who lives in Port Charles!”

“It’s nice to be home,” Bur­ton tweeted af­ter his first day at the stu­dio.

Monaco would “hate” to lose what she and Miller have de­vel­oped.
