Daytime Emmy winner Bryan Craig, who wrapped his run this week as Morgan Corinthos on ABC’s General Hospital, has revealed on social media tod a tad about his first project and role since departing the ABC daytime drama series.

Craig posted a photo of himself with shaved head and a bandana covering half his face, with the message: “Say hello to Jack” #Ridemovie.

Previously, Craig let his fans know on  Twitter on October 6th a bit about his next acting gig: “Just closed on a new project. Can’t wait to share with you all.”  That was followed by another tweet on October 9th relating, “Physical preparation starts today…. Gonna be a brutal 2 weeks.”

We will update you when we have more information on Ride the movie.

So, what do you think of Craig’s first role post-GH? Comment below

I’m happy for him. No risk, no reward. The time for him to take risks is now while his career is still relatively new. New wife, new job….good luck with all of it!

He looks pretty creepy! But, if anybody is up to the role, it’s Craig. His portrayal of a bipolar young man were fantastic. I will miss him at GH, but wish him all the best in future acting career.

If ‘THAT’ picture is supposed to make me want to watch whatever that piece of crap show is…it FAILED!

I couldn’t stand to watch “Morgan” with his shaved head. This character looks even worse!

Just because he won an Emmy doesn’t’ mean he can play any other role convincingly.

Yeah, too dark for me.
Is this gig going to be about a cult? Skinheads? Rebel bikers? Nah, not for me, thanks. Not my kind of world.
I am sure, SZima, that this ‘show’ will attract a horde of fans.

SZima…so with you on the picture and shaved head. If this has anything to do with his new project it certainly doesn’t look like something I would want to watch.

Rather than being rude and judgmental, you should actually wait and see what the movie or TV show is about before you start with the negative comments, and calling something crap based on a picture.

Totally agree. Loved seeing you as Morgan, and best of luck with your new project.

Not to mention, what is the rationale for presuming that he can’t play another role – in spite of winning the Emmy? That just seems totally lame.

I absolutely agree. I was not a fan of Morgan. I thought the material was too heavy and serious for the actor to handle. Morgan appeared to be more of a petulant, spoiled child, than someone suffering with mental illness. Morgan and Kiki were filler as best, not a super couple.

Perhaps to you and some others dr, but for me and others Bryan Craig was superlative. His scenes with Sonny, right from the start, were filled with passion and angst, his scenes with Ava sexual and longing, with Kiki hopeful and living….he went from light to dark…mellow to hyper…I just loved this character and Bryan’s portrayal. He touched, then broke, my heart.

Kudos Bryan! Will really miss your portrayal of lost soul/good soul…Morgan.

It’s great- when young actors can get their start in a soap and then be smart enough to seek acting careers outside of the dying soaps before they become stereotyped and stale/unable to grow into rising careers..
Bryan made a good move- up !!

You didn’t need to wish him well but, there was no need for that either. Your words were terrible .

Bryan Craig is a good actor… in this day and age…. he has the capabilities to move his acting this isn’t a stretch…. but… I liken him to Bradley Cooper of Silver Lining Playbook… where he played a man back home with Bi-Polar obviously Bradley Cooper delivered a more subtle nuanced even paced show Bryan Craig… if anything… is not guilty of a frenetic show one he didn’t know… plus his meds were screwed with… his skillset patience and study of this profession, given time… I wish him well. hey… i’m still glad he’s off the show for my lack… Read more »

I just read an interesting article…. I think it was another yahoo blog

where they discussed the role of Morgan

that perhaps he staged this accident and really just left town… to be on his own… to discover his new life… to learn all on his own

and return someday… however long it takes to recast or await BC.

plus… the biiggie… if and when or whomever is Morgan…that he returns without BP

this character had so much more to drive

Patrick

PS: when its said these serials can film up to 3 eps a day…. that’s frenetic

the prep time…. is so much less

so… Bryan Craig certainly will have the time to earn his keep

I am so sad as a GH fan because he was totally entertaining since day one! It was obvious this man has talent. As long as he keeps acting I will be happy because I think we only saw the tip of the ice birg. He could easily be the next Big name in the movie industry. Bery excited for his new ventures!

Lucked into a role with heavy hitters, did ok, got an emotional story, won an emmy, went to his head, went looking for greener pastures. Same ole story different actor.

Rebecca1
Guest

Rude comment, clh.. There’s no “same ol ‘ story.” He got a great break on GH and won a well-deserved Emmy. He’s a talented actor with a lot of range who wants to act in other things. Period. Went to his head? LOL. Maybe it gave him a feeling of pride and the confidence to leave a sure thing and take a chance on other projects. People do that in their careers…in and out of the industry. Jeeeeeesh!

KansasGuest

If that “same old story” is similar to the ones of Julianne Moore, Alec Baldwin, Susan Sarandon, Nathan Fillion, Sarah Michelle Gellar, & John Stamos, I think most actors would jump at the chance.

clh
Guest

Absolutely no where in their league. That’s where he thinks he is, but he was not that good to be honest. He was given a killer storyline that constantly had heavy hitters in it, that’s why he won the Emmy, the storyline. He is not very personable, even when he won the Emmy he looked like he was angry at the world. Every picture he’s part of, those around him are smiling and he always has a look on his face like “Do I really have to be here?” Does he have talent? Sure, but not as talented as many… Read more »

No one can tell how “good” or what “league” an actor is in at the beginning of their career. John Stamos & Julianne Moore were basically kids when they left their soaps. Same with Marisa Tomei & Alec Baldwin. Their development as actors had to do with the choices they made & the people they worked with. As for Craig’s facial expressions off screen, that has nothing to do with his talent. People have criticized Marlon Brando, James Dean, Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, & Benicio Del Toro for the exact same thing – that they aren’t personable & look… Read more »

Sounded like he took this step with the support of all his cast mates. Few actors want to play the same character their whole lives.

Good luck to him. Hated his portrayal of Morgan but I think perhaps the writing caused more problems than his acting. I hope he stretches his wings with this new project.

Wow—we got to see Justin Hartley move on to something big and now we see Bryan Craig going on to a feature film. It’s good to see these former daytime stars landing things that are much bigger than what they had before although I will miss seeing them on the soaps because they did such a good job.

Rebecca1
Guest

Hi James…just an FYI..Justin had success on primetime before his latest role on “This Is Us”. He was on “Revenge” and “Smallville” and made other primetime appearances. Was up for the lead on another CW show but it didn’t get picked up. He’s been around a while longer than Craig…he’s almost 40 so it makes sense he’s gotten more work. Both great actors…but yep…understandably they want to move on when opportunity knocks but it still’s a loss to us daytime viewers who were into their characters and these actors portraying them.

I do think Bryan made the right move. If he wants to branch out, do it when you’re young. If necessary, he can always return to “GH” when he is older, assuming it’s still around then.

Well he isn’t the first soap actor who wanted to try to get work in movies or prime time television and sometimes they will move on to bigger and better things– become as they say “stars”– good luck to him, hopefully GH will still be around should he ever decide to come back to daytime because he has to eat and the gigs are not coming his way— and to that end PLEASE GH– let the character stay dead— if they recast in a couple of months with a new actor, explaining his new face as plastic surgery from the… Read more »

Totally agree when a decision is made to kill a character off no matter who is writing you need to stick with it that’s why soap opera are laughed at. When Patrick Duffy made the decision to leave Dallas the killed off and he came back a year later as a dream I was done never watched again.

So you see Sabrina and Morgan fans, dont take their exits too hard, there is life after GH! I never liked Morgan, his attachment to Ava or Kiki, it was gross, and didnt care for the acting, in general, but he did win an Emmy and I’m sure that helped with his new gig. Good Luck!

All actors need to grow and expand their roles no matter what they do,and should be done while they are young enough.
I really thought that Morgan and Kiki did not belong together. Kiki is weak and needs a stronger man in her life,namely Dillon who is good for her

Rebecca1
Guest

Kiki weak? She took a bullet for Morgan, she survived her mother sleeping with Morgan, the death of her father…and she was Morgan’s rock. She’s been the pillar of strength through everything, unless you consider showing emotion as “weak.”

Oh Morgan it was heart braking last week, watching you go a smart, handsome gentleman you are. I sincerely hope they will catch Eva knowing she was the one responsible of unbalancing your medications. Thank you for your great performance on the show for you to know I’m a BIG fan. What ever your next move in life the best of luck!!! Well deserved…

GH’s Rebecca Herbst Thanks Fans for the Birthday Love

She is not often on social media, but when she does show up, it delights so many of her enduring fans. General Hospital’s Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth), who yesterday celebrated her birthday on May 12th, took to Twitter to share warm ‘thank you’s’ to a few fan factions who sent her some lovely gifts in honor and support of their favorite soap star.

Herbst expressed: “Yesterday was such a beautiful day! THANK YOU for all your sweet Birthday messages! #Friz & #Liason showered me with the most gorgeous flowers, cakes & goodies. And #Friz donated $2500 to #SmileTrain.  I felt very loved. I’m so grateful for each & every one of you. …XO”

Of course, the Friz fans loved Liz with Franco (Roger Howarth) and the Liason fans are those who love Liz with Jason (Steve Burton).

Now with Roger Howarth returning to the show – in what is at this juncture still a mystery as who he will play – will Rebecca be paired with Roger in story again, or not this time?  Do you think Liz might end up romantically with Finn (Michael Easton), or is there still a chance that down the line Liz and Jason could get back together, or could Liz meet someone new? Only time will tell!

For now, Herbst was thankful for the money donated to the Smile Train charity and all the wonderful gifts and messages that came her way.

So, what did you think of Becky’s thank you message?  Who are you hoping Liz winds up with romantically in the future?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GENERAL HOSPITAL Touches on Racial Profiling, Social Injustice and Bias In Key Scenes with Portia and Jordan

This week ABC’s General Hospital took the opportunity to write in to their scripts and story, the issue that has been so prevalent in our country now and for decades that of racial profiling, injustice, bias, gender equality and more rolled into scenes featuring: Brook Kerr (Portia), Briana Nicole Henry (Jordan), Sydney Mikala (Trina) and William Lipton (Cameron).

When Portia comes to the boxing gym for a workout and comes upon Jordan hitting the boxing bag hard over the the incident with Cameron in the hospital garage, it spurs a greater conversation.

Jordan tells Portia about the situation that arose with Cameron and a gun, and Portia says she heard about it.  Jordan knows if Cameron’s skin was a different color, she may not have been able to de-escalate the situation and talk her officers down, if she had not arrived on the scene in the nick of time.

This launches the two women into an important conversation on racial profiling, social injustice, white privilege and gender bias that they have found themselves dealing with in their professions (Portia is a doctor and Jordan the police commissioner) and their children’s lives.

Later in another scene, Trina reminds Cameron how they, along with Joss (Eden McCoy) were pulled over by a cop last summer when they were driving around the backroads.  She goes on to say when Cameron questioned why they were being stopped, it scared her.  She feels if Joss and Cam were not there, she would have likely been pulled out of the car and pinned to the ground by the cop.  Trina notes she put aside her fear and never said anything to them, because they would never understand.  Trina tells Cam he needs to realize how lucky he was the other night when nothing happened to him after his run in with police.

You can watch the conversation below in scenes with Briana Nicole Henry and Brooke Kerr.

Then let us know, did you like how GH wove this social message into the story?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GH’s James Patrick Stuart in the Cast of Disney Channel’s Super-Villains Pilot ‘Amy From Amarillo’

Casting news was recently announced for the Disney Channel’s upcoming half-hour live-action comedy pilot with a working title of Amy From Amarillo.

According to Deadline, while the series has named actress Isabella Pappas in the title role of Amy, none other than General Hospital star James Patrick Stuart (Valentin Cassadine) is also noted to be a part of the cast.

In story, the project follows a family of super-villains who must go on into hiding in Amarillo, Texas when they fall afoul of the League of Villains and are about to be liquidated.  Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.

Those joining Stuart and Pappas in the cast include: Hilda Spellman, Patricia Belcher, Kayden Muller-Janssen, Malachi Barton, Reed Horstmann and Lucy Davis will plays Amy’s mom, Eva aka Spark, a feisty supervillain who shoots electrical current out of her hands.

Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.  Stuart will be continuing his role on GH as per usual.

Furthermore, James took to Twitter this morning to clarify for inquiry GH fans who were concerned about the status the project might cause for his role on the ABC daytime drama series: “I am currently working on a Disney Channel comedy pilot. We film 15 minutes from the GH stage so, should the show get picked up for series, and while it would create scheduling headaches for some very cool people, I have no plans to hang up Valentin’s dancing shoes any time soon.”

So, intrigued by this pilot and what role James will have within it? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
