Bryan Craig Shares He’s Ready to Return to Daytime Either to GH, Y&R, B&B or DAYS

ABC’s Grand Hotel star and Daytime Emmy-winner Bryan Craig sent out a tweet on Friday morning that took soap twitterverse by storm, fueling speculations and thoughts of just where would be the best place for this talented actor to return; if one of the network daytime dramas added them to their cast.

Of course, first in line would seem to be General Hospital, where he played the role of Morgan Corinthos from 2013-2016, and made an appearance back on the show in 2018.  As viewers of GH know, Morgan is presumed dead.   Bringing Morgan back could add a lot of sparks into GH and their canvas.

Bryan tweeted: “I’m ready to work and up for grabs so who’s it gonna be?@GeneralHospital @YRInsider @BandB_CBS @nbcdays”

Another intriguing twist would be if Craig were to end up at Days of our Lives, where former GH head writer, Ron Carlivati is at the helm and is very familiar with Bryan’s work.

The Young and the Restless could certainly add some excitement to their storylines with an addition of a new character or one that is recast and played by Craig, and then there is B&B which would seem on paper; the least likely candidate given they are a half-hour show, but you never know.

So, where would you like to see Bryan go if he lands back on a daytime soap? Comment below.

How dissapeointng he would offer himself up to the other shows, doesn’t he have faith GH would pick him up again? considering they haven’t recasted. He really seems desperate for work, again dissapointed he didn’t give GH a chance to respond first privately and if he didn’t like their offer then he could of offer his services to the other shows, he’s a jerk but he’s talented, he should of had more faith on his talent, oh well, YR, or BB and DOOL can have his sorry ass, GH has enough talent to keep on going.

in this day and age… I don’t think there are any allegiances

who wants to join the Sonny and Carly show ? the dead air time that sucks

Christ … miraculously, Max Gail’ Mike is walking on water… all his faculties, present. Do I REAL’ly care , with this abomination, of lack, to all those of us affected by altzheimer? Just so we can see Sonny sunken tired dimple… so we can see his humane treats. My God… watching Carly , go thru another , SHORT TERM , mindset of Ferncliff. Thank You Nell for stealing the show and thunder from under Laura Wright. this is so over wrought with stink on shit…. as the executive producers, Frank Valentini, are blinded by, and DULL

Patrick you are so spot on!!! Your messages are hilarious but so true!! I do not post much but always enjoy reading your posts over the years..Enough off this tired alzheimer storyline that is dragging on for Emmy nominations purpose..Laura Wright’s talents have been wasted so much the past 2 years. GH is the worst soap out of the 4 for about 3 years now..Which is such a shame because they have the best actors/actresses in daytime…If Bryan Craig returns to GH, which he will, I hope they give us a good umbrella storyline and not the same old back from the dead, held prisoner or amnesia storyline.

Really? He offered himself up for all the shows. He is a human and needs to work! If GH wants him that’s where he would go first as stated in the article. Frankly I would love for him to be back on GH but ultimately it’s up to the show to take him back or not. Otherwise, bringing him to days wouldn’t be a bad idea either. They also have plenty of talent he could play off of. Who could he play?

Maybe he did offer to gh first, we don’t have all the details, tweets are too vague.

He must need a paycheck.

Just so he doesn’t do a ‘back-from’ the-dead’ story on GH! I hate when they do those ridiculous storylines.
Wouldn’t mind if he went to Y&R tho! He’s a pretty good actor.

Well… it’s not really back from the dead, if there was never a body, right?

I can say for the record, that Morgan was never in Hell. And from the folks upstairs who still take my calls, he wasn’t in Heaven either. So my guess would be that little bomb in Julian’s car might have knocked him on his head hard enough to wipe his memory, and they’ll play the old amnesia card for a few months.

What about recasting him on Y and R as Daniel, Phyllis’ son? And then they can pair him with the new Courtney Hope character, be it Sally or someone else, such as Heather Williams or Daisy.

I have a feeling that General Hospital is going to TRY and lure him back as Morgan, and i am NOT here for that. I would love to see him come to The Young and the Restless, however, I also know that Josh Griffith will fail to write for him. At this point, Days of Our Lives might be the safest route to take, as Ron Carlivati wrote for him on General Hospital, and I could see him giving him material in Salem! On a side note, and no shade, but I guess primetime did not wok in his favour, so he’s coming back to a medium he should have never left.

I really liked Grand Hotel

Please stay far, far away from Port Charles. There are too many Corinthos on the canvas as is. With Dante back, there’s no space.

I’m sure Ken & Ron can find a recast character for him in Salem somewhere.

Can’t see him fitting in on either CBS soap.

It’s time for Morgan to come home to Port Charles. His family could use a little good news right about now.

I agree.

I agree too, but I don’t know if Morgan returning from wherever, would be considered good news. I personally never cared for the character or actor.

Is he too old to play Joey on DAYs?

Technically he should be, but considering Claire is now literally the age that her mother SHOULD be, it’s not like ages are all that relevant in Salem.

Though lets be honest here…. he doesn’t really look like the offspring of two blonde parents like Kayla & Steve, does he?

He might do well in the role if he were willing to lighten his hair… but I’d still rather see him back on GH.

Let’s hope so!

Toss this Theo trash out with the Crimson lights garbage and bring Bryan to Genoa city along with Zac Tinker as Scotty and Fenn Baldwin and boost the Baldwin clan! Michael and Lauren are core characters and we need a real 3rd fam after the Abbotts and Newmans!
Kevin, Chloe, and Tessa can hit the bricks too if $ ‘s a issue.
Or, if the ptb insist on pushing this useless Theo character recast him Bryan as Theo. The current actor is autricious.

Damien
I agree with your thing about Theo. I can not stand this guy either. Maybe another actor would make a difference.I can’t stand the thought of him with Lola, especially after the number Kyle and Summer did on her. She deserves better! As for the Baldwin’s, I’d rather have Lauren’s son Scott come back and maybe Michael’s trouble maker mom.

Would love to see Bryan Craig back on GH. He’s such a talented actor, and was very deserving of the two Emmys he won. Characters have been coming back from the dead on soaps for 40+ years, so what’s one more, lol. It’s as woven into the fabric of soaps as the evil twin, the love triangle, the baby switch, and the list goes on. I’m sure GH could put together a compelling story to explain Morgan being alive, and it would definitely create a lot of storyline implications for many characters on the show.

If Frank V. needs to clear room in the budget to make it happen, I have a list of characters that can take the nearest car, bus, plane, train, or boat out of Port Charles.

Agree with you on clearing room, although I don’t think Morgan is needed. At last count, there’s currently 30 performers on contract. That doesn’t even include some recurring vets that heavily used (and needed).

Could also come up with a list of missing characters that are needed more on the canvas than Morgan.

There’s just no room at the inn.

I’d love for him to return to GH, but do think this Tweet is tasteless. He’s better than that.

That tweet makes him look bad If he just wants to go to any soap and not come back to GH see you later !

He’s so desperate.

Thank you for saying that. He walked away from a job but now he’s ready to come back so he wants a soap to hire him? Wow, it makes him sound pretty full of himself.

That tweet would not make me want to hire him. Doesn’t he have an agent?

Don’t want to see a resurrection of Morgan, so NO to Bryan back on GH. Plus he is showing no loyalty to GH by offering his services to I have to assume the highest bidder if he’s so lucky to pick and chose.

General Hospital of course. I have been waiting for this day for a long time. General Hospital please bring Bryan back aka Morgan. Sonny and Carly need their son to come home. I thought they were bringing him back when Carly was in Ferncliff but it didn’t hsppen. Now is the perfect time. When Sonny loses Mike he needs this.

I would love to see this fine looking young man back on GH, but that’s the beauty of being talented, you can choose what you want to do. We have no idea what things were like at GH for Brian, may have been great, may have been strained, but either way, I’d love to see him back at GH. I can already picture the scenes with Sonny, Carly, MICHAEL, Joss, AVA!!! OMG please GH bigwigs, work your magic!!!!!!

as Sami’s son?…on Days?…bringing Morgan back on GH?-would be funny if Nelle got involved with him???

Jimh,
Funny you saying that. I was thinking maybe the body found is not really Nelle’s. Chase was supposed to check it out in the morgue but he never mentioned it when he went to the bar afterwards. I was thinking maybe Morgan who is still alive rescued Nelle and they will show up in P.C when least expected.

Maybe and Nelle marries him then shows up-lol

Obviously the body isn’t Nelle. They keep making a point of mentioning that the body was found “on the Pennsylvania side of the river” which seems to be setting up a scenario where the PA authorities are going to probably dispose of the body via cremation when nobody from Port Charles shows up to claim it.

Since Julian is still legally Nelle’s husband, the PA authorities would probably contact him for permission of what to do with the body, and Julian (not really giving a shit) would probably give them the OK to burn her up.

So in typical soap fashion, nobody will ever actually get anywhere near this body to realize that it’s NOT actually Nelle.

On the other horn, I do think it’s interesting that you think Morgan might have found Nelle. Where ever Morgan has been for the last couple of years though, I suspect he can’t remember who he is. But it would be funny if he just found Nelle at random. If a Devil remembers correctly, Nelle showed up in Port Charles shortly after Morgan’s supposed “death”, so I don’t think the two of them have ever actually met.

GH—-Don’t let this great actor go to another soap. It is time for Morgan to return!

General Hospital

I would love to see Bryan reprise the role of Morgan on General Hospital! What a storyline that would bring to the show!! I’d definitely be excited to welcome him back!

Not a very nice tweet. Kinda tacky.

Please—NOOOOOO!!!!!!

Hi Celia!! 🙂
I want Bryan/Morgan back..
He can erase a lot of the same ‘ol and give some new stories..
Bryan also is a great actor and could shake up GH..
HEY! perhaps he and Ava would do the nasty ahaaa
that would be entertaining in whichever way LOL
Max– I luvs Max.. He is pure gold..
I’m going to hate to see him go 🙁
Anyways- GH needs new and different and Bryan can bring it home
no matter how he’s written.
If no Morgan then Franco needs to grow his tumour back
((I need excitement!! He could throw Sam over a cliff/ never to be found!

perhaps if morgan comes back, he can bring kiki too… it sort of sad neither of the shows both actors left for worked… i did like the pairing of kiki and morgan

Really liked Grand Hotel, cant believed it wasnt picked up for a 2nd season. We NEED a night time, weekly soap!!

Three words…………..

Recast Noah Newman

Any show would be lucky to have him. Wasn’t he going to be a movie star at some point

‘The Talk’ Renewed For 15th and Final Season to End in December; Does Its Cancellation Make Room for ‘The Gates’?

Things just got very interesting over at CBS daytime with the announcement today that The Talk is going to end its run on the network after its 15th season, and that season looks to be shortened as the series will come to its conclusion in December of 2024.

In a joint statement, Amy Reisenbach, President, CBS Entertainment and David Stapf, President, CBS Studio, shared, “The Talk broke new ground when it launched 14 years ago by returning daytime talk to CBS with a refreshing and award-winning format. Throughout the years, it has been a key program on CBS’ top rated daytime line-up as it brought timely, important and entertaining topics and discussions into living rooms around the globe.”

Reisenback and Stapf added, “It goes without saying that hosting and producing a year-round talk show is no easy task, and we express our sincere gratitude to our amazing hosts Akbar Gbajabiamila, Amanda Kloots, Natalie Morales, Jerry O’Connell and Sheryl Underwood, our Executive Producer/Showrunner Rob Crabbe and the hardworking producing team and crew.

Giving props to those who co-hosted or worked on the show through the years including: Sara Gilbert, Julie Chen Moonves, Carrie Ann Inaba Leah Ramimi, Marissa Janet Winokur, Holly Robinson Peete, Eve, Aisha Tyler, and Sharon Osbourne, the joint statement added, “We also want to acknowledge our former show hosts and colleagues who contributed throughout the seasons. We truly appreciate the skill, creativity, and dedication everyone involved brought to the show every day.  And of course, we thank the numerous guests who appeared, and the millions of viewers who tuned in daily. For the final season, we plan to celebrate the show and give it the proper sendoff it deserves when it concludes in December 2024.”

While no firm decision or announcement has been given at this time, it seems most likely that The Talk’s time slot could be given to the new soap opera in development The Gates from CBS Studio Ventures and from longtime soap opera writer. Michele Val Jean.  As previously reported, The Gates features the lives of a wealthy Black family who reside in a posh, gated community.

The Talk was originally the brainchild of Sara Gilbert, who had developed the show when it launched back 2010 and it replaced the beloved As the World Turns which went off the air after 54 years when CBS canceled it.

So, what do you think of The Talk being canceled? Will this make room for The Gates to begin to air in its spot beginning in 2025? Share your reactions to the news via the comment section.

O. J. Simpson Dead at 76: Real-Life Murder Trial in Which He Was Acquitted, Changed the Trajectory of Soap Operas

Former Pro Football superstar, O. J. Simpson, who became infamous for being on trial for the murders of his former wife, Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman, has passed away at the age of 76 of cancer.

Simpson’s family put out a statement sharing, “Our father, Orenthal James Simpson, succumbed to his battle with cancer. He was surrounded by his children and grandchildren. During this time of transition, his family asks that you please respect their wishes for privacy and grace.”

It was the murder trial that overtook the airwaves back in late 1994 and through most of 1995 that changed the landscape of daytime television forever, and in particular soap operas that many will recall.

Photo: AP

On June 12, 1994, Nicole Simpson, O.J.’s former wife, and her friend, Ron Goldman, were brutally murdered. When O.J. became the prime suspect, a wild pursuant of him by the police while in his white Ford Bronco was viewed on every network by some 95 million viewers. This June marks 30-years since the incident.

Ultimately, Simpson was charged with Brown Simpson and Goldman’s murders, though he was acquitted in what was dubbed The Trial of the Century.

The trial permeated the airwaves of every network and any time of day. Networks consistently interrupted soap operas while covering the day in and day out of the spectacle that was this star athlete and TV and film star’s trial.

With many of the soaps pre-empted on a regular basis, the public fascination of Simpson’s trial was to many better than a soap opera as it has all the ingredients. Writer Dominic Dunne noted the themes via an article in Vanity Fair of “interracial marriage, love, lust, lies, hate, fame, wealth, beauty, obsession, spousal abuse, stalking, brokenhearted children, the bloodiest of bloody knife-slashing homicides, and all the justice that money can buy.”

Because of the trial, soap operas lost a significant amount of their audiences. The murder trial went on for 11 months from November 9, 1994, to October 3, 1995.  They never were able to fully rebound as reality television became the next big thing.

O.J. Simpson is survived by four children: Arnelle and Jason, from his first marriage, and Sydney and Justin, from his marriage to Nicole Brown Simpson.

So, do you remember being frustrated that your favorite soaps could not air during the O.J. trial, or did you find the murder trial more intriuing than the soaps themselves? Comment below.

‘Melrose Place’ Reboot in the Works with Heather Locklear, Daphne Zuniga and Laura Leighton

Looks like some of former residents of Melrose Place will be getting back together in a revival of the popular Fox primetime soap opera of the 90s.

Now comes word that original series stars, Heather Locklear, Daphne Zuniga and Laura Leighton are set to reprise their signature roles of Amanda Woodward, Jo Reynolds, and Sydney Andrews.

The project is currently being shopped and looking for a TV or streaming home and coming from CBS Studios. The new offering is written by Lauren Gussis, and in story, Melrose Place picks up years after the original series and would provide an update on the characters, one of whom may no longer be with us.

In the premise, former residents will reunite “when one of their dearest friends dies suddenly.” However, things don’t go smoothly when old traumas, the reigniting of old romances and old resentments, and new secrets are revealed. Thus, throwing our characters into chaotic drama that’s reminiscent of the past, but with a much more modern perspective.

The original Melrose Place debuted on Fox back in 1992 and aired for seven seasons till 1999, and followed the young residents of a Los Angeles apartment complex. Locklear’s Amanda was a ruthless advertising executive. Leighton played Jane’s sister Sydney and Zuniga played photographer Jo. The cast also included: Marcia Cross, Josie Bissett, Andrew Shue, Courtney Thorne-Smith, Grant Show, Thomas Calabro, Doug Savant, Rob Estes, Brooke Langton, Lisa Rinna, Kristin Davis and Alyssa Milano.

According to Deadline, more original cast member will sign on if the show gets the green light. This is not the first time a Melrose Place reboot has made its way to television.  The CW revived the series in 2009 with a new cast which lasted only one season. However, Locklear, Zuniga and Leighton all made guest appearances.

So, do you hope a Melrose Place reboot with several of its original cast makes its way back on network TV or a streaming platform? Comment below.
