'General Hospital' Spoilers: If Steve Burton's Not Jason, Here's Who He Could Play In 'GH' Return

General Hospital spoilers have teased since news broke of Steve Burton's return to the ABC soap that he would play Jason Morgan, but Billy Miller is in that role. There have been rumors of a twin twist coming, but GH fans seem divided on whether they want Burton back as the "real" Jason or prefer the show to stick with Miller and have Burton in another role.

Many GH fans noticed that at the end of the promo video announcing his return to the soap (scroll to see below) that Steve Burton's eyes were dark brown instead of his natural light color, sparking speculation that he would not be back as the blue-eyed ex-mobster. Sure, General Hospital could bring back Burton as Jason and create a big mess, but there are lots of alternatives for other characters that he could play.

GH has a successful track record of bringing back legacy actors in other roles. Former Carly Corinthos actress Sarah Brown went brunette to play mob vixen Claudia Zacchara, and fans loved her. Plus, Michael Easton has played several roles on GH, so why not Steve Burton?

Knowing Burton is back to GH for a long-term stint, that means everything is wide open. The alum could be back to play Jason Morgan, inciting doppelganger Jason or he could be a brand new or return past GH character. Nothing has been confirmed by ABC, General Hospital or the actor, so we'll have to hold tight until we get firm GH spoilers to know the truth.

In the meantime, there's a kidnapping drama that kicked off today that has fans wondering if Nikolas Cassadine is back and lots more General Hospital spoilers action to come the week of July 17-21.
