— General Hospital’s Billy Miller (Jason) will guest star on Suits when the Toronto-shot series returns for the continuation of its fourth season in January. Although Suits returns on Wednesday, January 28 at 10 p.m. on Bravo (in Canada) and USA Network (in the U.S.), there is no word yet when Miller will air or how many appearances he’ll have.
Billy Miller recently spoke about his taking over the role of Jason on GH from his former The Young and the Restless (where he played Billy) co-star Steve Burton (who’s now playing Dylan): “It would be ridiculous for me to mimic [the way Burton played him].” Fans have noticed that Miller’s portrayal of an amnesiac Jason (who’s going by Jake) is a lot more smiles and jokes. “It’s more fun in this genre whenever you can add some lightness to it or make it funny. You don’t get a lot of room for that so I usually look for it. It’s a scary position for this guy who is so lost and doesn’t know who he is, [so]you match that with a little bit of humour.”
What will happen when Jason remembers his past (whether it be the Morgan past or the Quartermaine past): “It really does offer up some great story if we decide to go there. I really hope that’s how we explore this because I feel like that might be more my strength.” Miller also adds that he’s looking forward to act opposite some more General Hospital stars including Maurice Benard (Sonny), Roger Howarth (Franco) as well as Anthony Geary’s Luke (or Fluke), adding that “I can’t wait for that acting class.”
In the next batch of General Hospital episodes featuring Jason/Jake, look for “Jake” to ID the visitor he had as Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers), prompting Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) to notify Anna (Finola Hughes). Meanwhile, Sam (Kelly Monaco) goes with her hutch about who “Jake” might really be.
— Billy Miller isn’t the only GH star with a primetime appearance; don’t forget that Roger Howarth will soon begin his recurring gig on The Flash.
— I’m hearing that both Rick Hearst (Ric) and Kimberly McCullough (Robin) will be back on General Hospital this December. Will Ric finally emerge out of the witness protection program? Could Robin be the one to cross paths with the real Luke? Because, you totally didn’t believe the Luke that Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) rescued last week was the real deal, right?
— Days of our Lives stars Eric Martsolf (Brady) and Jen Lilley (Theresa) have recorded their own version of the Christmas class, “Baby It’s Cold Outside.” You can download it both iTunes and Google Play for $0.99.
— Eileen Davidson (Ashley, The Young and the Restless; ex-Kristen, Days of our Lives) finally makes her debut on this week’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills in the U.S. (Note: this episode airs next Tuesday on Slice in Canada).
