In a surprise twist that no one saw coming, the pivotal role of Michael Corinthos who is at the center of the current Claudia Zacchara murder trial on General Hospital has been recast, which means Drew Garrett is out! This official statement from a GH spokesperson went out this afternoon that stated,  “We are recasting the role of Michael Corinthos Jr., the son of Sonny and Carly, with actor Chad Duell (Wizards of Waverly Place and Suite Life On Deck). His first airdate is Tuesday, April 20th.”

The statement goes on to say, “The continuing storyline will have viewers on the edge in the weeks leading up to May sweeps as Michael and his father frantically try to hide the truth that he murdered his stepmother Claudia. We want to thank Drew Garrett for his time with General Hospital and wish him well in all his future endeavors.”

Drew’s former co-star Steve Burton (Jason) tweeted the following when he found out about the casting change upon his return from some east coast personal appearances. “Worked today and heard bad the news about Drew. Sucks!Sucks!Sucks! My best to him. Drew’s a good kid who will land on his feet.”

See image of the new Michael, Chad Duell after the jump.

Chad Duell’s image is pictured here. So what do you think of the decision? Until Chad hits the airwaves it’s hard to tell, but something is definately going to be different. Could the show be planning a more dastardly Michael C.?  Stay tuned.

What now? Why is GH doing this? I tthink Drew is doing a very commendable job. They ought to be concerned about the Cassadine baby switch. And haven’t we had enough of Helena and her machinations over the years. It ‘s so obvious every time they bring her back that evil will be apparent. I’m getting tired of it all. Boring……

Here I finally start watching GH again and they disappoint me by replacing one of my fav characters. This new guy won’t be the true michael….

Well, the Michael you say you have gotten so use to has only been on for less than 1 year! Guess we will get us to this one too.

Deb E we bonded with Drew in this one year and no won will ever take his place!

please sign this petition to get drew garett and aaron back on as michael & morgan on general hospital!!! and spread the word!!!!

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/keepdrewandaarononGH

The whole Helena thing is the worst! I am sick of Helena too. And I am tired of Lucky being in the dark ALL the time! This new Helena plot is boring and I hope Lucky finds out about the paternity way before the new baby is born!

This new guy will never be as good as Drew. Drew had good chemistry with all of the other characters. This new guy looks high off his horse. Drew played a good Michael and I’m dissapointed that they re casted.

Holly your right. I will never watch GH untill DREW comes back!!!!!! Thanks everyone!! Bring Drew Back.

They do not want the young people to watch (or why would they get rid of our young James Dean??) So we wont untill Drew Garrett comes back.

i totaly agree drew made a great michael the new guy sucks he is a disney channel star he is not cut out for soap oprah work.

Me too and helena i what her gone I don’t like her anymore

I am very very upset that GH is getting rid of an excellent young actor who could grow with the show over the years. Everyone thinks he is doing an excellent job. He is up for an award and how very sad for him to be doing such a great job and to be canned for some kid from Disney. This really stinks in many ways. I am just very sad that he will not be on Gh anymore. There is no reason to recast someone who is perfect for the role.

WE WANT DREW GARRETT BACK AS MICHAEL AND WE WILL NEVER STOP!!! BUT WE HAVE STOPPED WATCHING GENERAL HOSPITAL!!!!!!!!

he is leaving no one tell me that not good

GH is on its downward spiral and has been for some time. Guza, Phelps, and Frons have created a one trick pony with the monster they created in Sonny. The enitre show revolves around one character and his many illegitimate offspring, Boring. They have ditched the history of the show and the characters the fans have grown with over decades in favor of revolving door plots and characters. Its by far the worst daytime show on and laughable at times. This current GH does not hold a candle to the innovative history making program it once was, what a waste to have all that history to work with and to destroy this once great show.

Could not have said it better myself!!! All my favorite characters of the 80’s and 90’s have been killed off or had their characters destroyed!

OMG Ive watched G.H since I was 8 I know all about history. If its such a terrible show how did you even find this bored to post your poor excuse of a comment on. Most of the people of the past have moved on to do bigger and better things and I cant think of many of those people who havent been back over the years to pay there respects. So Tom if its such a bad show its won alot of emmys more then any other soap

The premise of soap operas is about relationships and families. Due to the length of time these shows run 40-50 years producers and writers honor the characters and viewers by their long time viewership. Some actors have moved on, most have been pushed out. The Young and The Restless is a wonderful example of a show that has honored its audience by keeping long time characters around and giving them front burner stories. When Guza and Phelps came into GH they destroyed the history of the show, destroyed long time characters and changed what had been a show of great history and story telling. Most of the emmys you speak of were not won during the tenure of this writing and production team, but was the accomplishment of others. The show is now a selfish vision of a writer that doesnt have the talent to write a relationship/character driven story, its all about bad gimicks and I dont feel the front burner characters on today show any positive attributes that the viewers want to route for. The name of the game is ratings and all the proof I need as to how bad this show has become can be reflected in the number of people tuning in to watch. So Heather thanks for your opinion but its really not a valid response

that is interseting story

I’ve been waiting for this! Great news. He’s a terrible actor! Has been from the very start. Now, please get rid of that stupid Spinelli. Now that is the worst acting! I’m so very happy for this change. Anybody will be better than Drew Garrett. What a loser.

seriously? you don’t like him so he’s a loser? hmmmm

uhm no drew garrett is THE BEST ACTOR OF OUR GENERATION YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT.. THERE ARE MILLIONS OF PEOPLE WHO DISAGREE WITH YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WELL NOW YOU HAVE TWO FREAKEN SPINELLI’S BECAUSE THE NEW MICHAEL LOOKS LIKE SPINELLI POPPED OUT A FREAKEN BABY!

100% with Jesln. How many people have started to watch General Hospital becouse of Chad maybe his family? How many people have stopped watching becouse of Chad thousands & thousands. DO THE MATH.

I LOVE Spinelli… He makes me laugh and cry!!!

I think Drew Garrett is a really good actor, but as you know when a charcter on GH has a serious personality change the actor sometimes has to change too. Could anyone really be able to imagine Tamara Braun as Carly Jax? I know i would have been pissed had they kept her as Carly. She was the best Carly Corinthos but I dont think she would have been convincing as the wife of Jasper Jax. Maybe later on Drew Garrett will be back maybe not but he will have a good career reguardless i’m sure.

OH and one more thing… haha Synthia Hernandez says: he’s a loser… thats not cool man… who are you?? Dont be mad cause you’re thinking about him and he’s not thinking about you. Drew do your thing man… don’t sweat the haters k =)

I totally agree w/ you. Calling Drew Garrett a loser b/c she dislikes his acting is pretty silly.

That sucks!! I like Drew as Michael! He has been doing an amazing job, and for GH to recast him is just ridiculous! He even looks like a younger version of Jason! Bad move GH, bad move! Shame on you!

I still can’t get over the fact that they replaced the old Michael (the red-head). And now this. I really like this one…….as I did the other one. I wish they would quit messing around!

I DID NOT WATCH GH ALL LAST WEEK WITHOUT DREW AND WILL NEVER WATCH AGAIN

This is very sad news Drew is Michael i cant picture anyone else in the role plus hes really good he reminds me of a younger JOnathan jackson i am just shocked, what shocked me even more was when i called to complain at GH they hung up on me! I think GH just lost my neilson point why should i watch their show they obviously dont care what i think

This is a shock.What is GH doing!! This kid is a great actor. He took over a hard role, being aged. A lot of viewers loved the Michael b4 him. He came in and won us over. At times stealing the scenes. With summer coming up, and teens being out od school you think they would want to keep one of the best teen actors they have around. Dumb move GH!

I hate that they are replacing Drew as Michael. He does not look preppy as I have read in some blurbs. He looks more edgy and more like a Corinthos than this Chad kid. Chad is the one with chipmunk cheeks and looks very “high school musical” to me. Definitely a BIG mistake GH. I like Morgan too, but I understand it was HIS choice to pursue other roles. Back to Michael. Drew/Michael has a repore with all of the other actors/characters and is VERY believeable as Michael. I was sorry to see Dylan Cash go as the original Michael. He was actually very believable also – especially when he started to get all gangster like his dad in his dark long coat. If GH could have held out for a while longer to give him time to mature…he would have been very good to keep the role. They wanted to age Michael and Drew was an excellent choice. Michael is NOT aging now – so what is with this GH. Boo-hiss!!!! Just my 2 cents.

Wow! Do I agree! One thing though…Dylan Cash was ok as a young actor but was totally unbelievable as a Mobster’s son wanting to carry on in the family business. He was always a poor actor in myu opinion except for the times he was the protective older brother. When Drew first came on I wasn’t sure where they were going with such a massive change in looks and style, but my God, it only took a few episodes and I was hooked! The vehemous way he plays the Mobster’s son os amazing! The onlt other roles in the 33 years I have watched this show that were as great are the fitting change of Carly-shocking at first- and the wonderful casting of Dominic-a perfect fit from day 1! Drew even looks like Carly (unlike the chubby cheeked, short redhead) with the tall, slim build and the facial features. He sooo acts like her when they each get on their “high horses” too! This Chad is already soooo unbelievable- I KNOW he killed Claudia and even I didn’t believe him when he took the blame and tried to convince Dominic. Possibly a good actor for a supporting role, but absolutely horrible in an “adult” lead role. Another poor choice (as is the Helena repeat crap again) for a storyline that is bound to chase off viewers. I now watch less than half the show at a time.

COME ON! drew is the best michael! That other kid could barely act on Wizards he is a fruit loop. He sucks at acting bring drew back. I think i may be done watching my favorite soap now cause this stupid MISTAKE!

I totally agree! Whoever made this decision was not thinking about the people who are actually WATCHING the show. Dumb, Dumb, dumb!

Drew Garrett was wonderful as Michael, but as usual the writers are writing Sonny and GH as the Sopranos…Why would they not want an actor to go from his teens on as did Jason, Emily, Robin , Elizabeth and Lucky for the next Generation…The soap was better under Wendy Riche…God bless her…Sonny continues to be out of control and why the veneration of Luke for God’s sake!!!! Except for his “My Way” facing death gig, he’s the same old, same old…Hope the writers stop writing like wanna-be gangsters and get Sonny back to someone with redeeming qualities…Jason sacrificing himself yet again shows Sonny’s selfishness continues unabated…If Jason goes off the show, I will not watch General Hospital and break a 45 year love of the show…If Jason is taking a break for awhile to pursue his private business and then return, I’ll hang on. I feel that Domenic and Drew and Olivia are the greatest additions to the show in years…Oh, and could you lose the actress and role of Lisa…She is so not up to Robin and Patrick et al……….

Why would you lose such a great actor, please do someting abc, my daughter and I want him back

This is probably the stupidest character switch you all have ever done!!! Drew Garrett played the role of Michael so well and he was a perfect match as far as his appearance and his attitude. This new guy is a Disney Channel actor….how the hell is he gonna play the role of a Mob Bosses Son! Not smart casting director! Bring Drew Garrett back! I don’t even want to watch the new Michael.

Ive watched 10 min of the new one and i hate it…Drew was 1000000% better…i dont think im such a big fan of the show anymore..never mind the fact that the Drew was a lot cuter then chad

I don’t know why they would “dump” Drew. I thought it was dumb to change him from Michael Cash, but Drew did a fantastic job. And now that we all love him they go and do something stupid like that. BUT, that is not the only stupid thing they have done this month. Instead of letting Keifer get his “Just desserts” you killed him off. It needed to be shown that just because his parents thought he was the greatest son, he wasn’t and needed to be punished for what he did to Christina. Thank you for your time.

Totally agree! I loved Dylan Cash as Michael, wasn’t sure if I would like the aged Micheal but Drew Garrett was on point. He held his own against Laura Wright, Maurice Bernard, and Steve Burton. And that is impressive for someone so young because they are all superb actors. And the repoire with Kristina, Morgan, and Molly was excellent. I was really starting to love these kids as the next generation of GH. I watched the newest Michael the last two days and I just don’t think he has it. And I really think GH messed up even more by not letting Drew finish this current killing Claudia storyline. This was his story and Drew should have been allowed to conclude it. I didn’t feel anything when the Chad guy was telling Dante about killing Claudia. He is just not right for this storyline. I don’t want to have to watch someone grow into a role when there was already an excellent young actor who doing great in this storyline. I am not buying him as Michael Corinthos.

I couldn’t have said it better myself! This is what I was trying to say when I posted, but you definitely stated it clearer. I was equally impressed with Drew’s performance in all scenes with the other already established actors/actresses, but he was exactly “on” for the role and the position that Michael is now in. I was so happy they aged him and brought in a more mature actor to play a much moodier and deeper Michael, but now we are right back where we started with Disney Chad. I don’t buy it either!

Very dissapointed!!! Drew Garrett nailed the role. Michael is Jason’s biological nephew and he looks just like the younger version of Jason. Not only was he perfect because of the resemblance…he played the role just like an edgy mobster’s son…I love Drew Garrett…PLEASE BRING HIM BACK. I’ve been a GH viewer for 30 plus years and I have to say this is one of my most dissapointing character changes.

Does anyone know why they recast Drew’ srole, I think he was an excellent actor and I have been watching GH ever since I was a little girl, sad to think I will have to stop now, I watched today and the new actor is completely opposite of the persona Drew portrayed……GH lost a fan due to this recast….I have stuck with them through all of them except this one.

they should keep Drew Garrett as Michael Corrinthos Jr, they need to stop changing him. I was finally getting used to the new Michael, Drew Garrett played a good Michael and they should keep him..

This is uif worst change ever this new guy chad sucks looks like a pretty boy

What are they thinking?!!! Drew Garrett does an amazing job as Michael don’t understand why he would be replaced. New guy will be hard to be believable in the middle of the story crisis right now. Big shoes to fill & looks way too innocent to be a bad boy!!

OMG!!!!!! WHAT THE HELL GH??? WHAT WERE U THINKING??? BRING BACK DREW GARRETT PLEEEEASE!!!!!! HE WAS PERFECT FOR THE ROLE AS MICHAEL CORINTHOS……THIS NEW GUY IS SOOOOOOO BAD. GIVE HIM A DIFFERENT ROLE I’M SURE HE’D BE GOOD, BUT NOT AS MICHAEL. DO U EVEN CARE ABOUT YOUR FANS???? IF U DO….RESOLVE YOUR ISSUES WITH DREW….SUCK IT UP…..AND BRING HIM BACK!!!!!!!!!!

Just one more voice that wants to be heard whether they listen or not…
Drew Garrett was the first believable male child actor this show had shown us. (Great job with Christina and Molly). The redheaded, chubby gifted, preppy Michael never fit the role, but the change to Drew was amazing and then back to another child-like “sweet” actor has once again killed the role. I will NEVER believe this kid could play the role as a “bad ass” Mobster’s son yet as a loving family man- hte same way you would have us believe Sonny and Jason have been all these years.

I think it sucks I really enjoyed Drew playing the part. It was finally a good match plus he had the edge. Just what we need playing the mob boss son disney boy. Come on is it to late to get Drew back?

Let Drew Garrett go was a bone-headed move! The powers-that-be need to get their heads out of the collective asses, admit they made a mistake and bring Drew back!

I swear Im this close to saying the hell with G.h. Why do soaps do dumb stuff? You got it right the first time with Drew get him back. Im over it and Lulu has turned into a bioth

I have not watched in almost 2 months. Why lose all these people for your pride! Just say you were wrong and bring Drew back! if you owe Chad money the fans will sent you 20$ or more you will make money! I spend that much a week calling you asking for Drew. first thing in the morning im calling again! we want Drew………..

Totally agree. This new Michael was quite a shocker. he looks looks too old to even be believable as Carly’s son. Short & chubby, too. I agree with Sheilah about killing off Kiefer. It would’ve been so much better for him to have been repremanded for domestic violence and teach a lesson to the young viewers that violence is not okay & needs to stop. but NO. Instead GH kills him off. Stupid move, stupid message. Two stupid decisions airing in the same month. Changing the role of Michael and killing off Kiefer. Way to go GH.

Bye bye Drew.
We barely knew Yew.
Your acting was Pew.
You had no clew.
Acting you couldn’t dew.
And so out we threw.
You know what to dew.
Go Eff Yew!

My guess is Micheal Eisner head of abc was stuck with Chad under a former contract. so decided to can Drew to save money and use this kid who was not working. Thats how it works at abc and disney

I am not happy at all with Chad a Michael. I can’t stand to watch GH now so I have moved to another Soap until they rehire Drew back as Michael. It makes me sick when they change characters for no reason. He was an excellent young actor and I can see him as Michael for years to come. What a shame. They lost me over it.

New Details Emerge in Fatal Shooting of General Hospital’s Johnny Wactor; Was Protecting Female Co-Worker From Armed Car Thieves

The brother of Johnny Wactor (ex-Brando Corbin) has come forward with some new information on the act of violence that took the life of the General Hospital favorite on Saturday May 25th in the wee hours of the morning in downtown Los Angeles.

As valiant as man as Johnny was to all those who know and loved him, he was through and through that man till the very end. According to Grant Wactor, Johnny actually shielded a female co-worker at the time of the crime before he was fatally shot.  Three men were trying to steal Wactor’s catalytic converter from his vehicle, one of which fired the shot that killed the former GH star.

According to a new report from the Daily Mail, Wactor was leaving his side job as a bartender at a downtown LA rooftop bar with a female colleague at around 3:25am when he saw the three men near his vehicle at West Pico Boulevard and South Hope Street.

Believing he was being towed, he approached the men to try to discuss it. One of the men then looked up and pointed a gun at Wactor, who put his body in front of his female co-worker as he was shot. Police say, the three men were all wearing masks, and then fled the scene in another car.  The suspects currently remain at-large.

Grant commented on his brother’s last act of bravery, “We’re Southern, born and raised, and we would never let a female walk to their car by herself.” He added that Johnny, “Thought his truck was being towed. So he said something to the guys, like, ‘Hey, are you towing?’ And then once he turned around, he saw what was happening and he put his coworker behind him. And that’s when they shot him.

Sadly, Grant revealed, Johnny was shot in the chest, and that Johnny and his co-worker had to park about two blocks from the restaurant, so they were walking to their cars after they finished their shift when the incident unfolded.

Grant shared that he hopes justice will be served and the men are caught, “I hope they are able to track the people who did this. I am glad in a way that this is getting the publicity so that it could shed some light that things need to change, or find ways so that no one else has to experience this – whether it be a murder or being at the wrong place at the wrong time.”

In what has already been horrific that we lost Johnny to a senseless act of gun violence over an attempted theft, learning that the actor died right after protecting somebody else, only reinforces the kind of man Wactor was to all those who knew and loved him.

Many of Johnny’s former GH castmates took to social media in the last several hours with heartbreaking and touching words on the loss of Wactor. Here are just some below, and Michael Fairman TV will continue to update these remembrances as they are posted.

Sofia Mattsson (Sasha) – My heart is so utterly broken… Johnny was the absolute best. So genuine. So caring. Incredibly hard working and humble. With a huge heart that spread so much kindness and joy. He always made sure everyone around him felt seen, heard and loved. I admire the man he was so much and I’m a better person for having known him. We shared so many special moments, both on and off screen, and I will forever cherish them deeply in my heart. You will be so incredibly missed Johnny… I’m sure you’re already busy taking care of everyone up there.”

Maurice Benard (Sonny): “What can I say about something so senseless? Johnny was the sweetest guy coolest dude and just a great soul. This is beyond words you will be missed my friend.”

Chad Duell (Michael): “Some POS scum taking the life of someone who’s making something of themselves, and an amazing person. So disgusting and infuriating. Don’t know what else to say.. just so wrong.”

Photo: ABC

Jon Lindstrom (Kevin): “When the tears slow down, I am literally sick to my stomach at this news. Johnny was one of those rare young men in this business who was kind, unassuming, humble, and always thought about other people. A talented young guy who just wanted to share that talent with the world. I wish I had enough love to fill the hole that his loved ones must feel right now, but I know that’s impossible. Johnny will be missed on this plane. For a long time to come. R.I.P.”

Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis): “An absolutely inconceivable, enraging & senseless tragedy. Johnny was a lovely man. Condolences to his family & friends. May they find eventual peace & may his memory be a blessing.”

Finola Hughes (Anna): “Gutted…. 🕊️ sending my deepest condolences to his family 🤍 I feel I must add to this post. The shock is so terrible, for such a genuine young man to be taken so violently. I am incredibly sad for his family. He was a very hardworking person, kind and extremely respectful to his fellow cast members. I am so sorry for his loss 🤍 Johnny Wactor xxx”

Photo: ABC

Kirsten Storms (Maxie): “I’m in a state of disbelief and complete sadness. I don’t typically do posts like this, but Johnny was such a special person and it feels important (for me) to put these words out there. To Johnny’s mother and family, I am so sorry for your loss. I can’t imagine what you must be feeling right now. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Johnny was one of those rare “real individuals” that you almost never come across. I was fortunate enough to have some really good conversations with him where we discussed things I don’t typically open up about. For some reason, we talked about the deep stuff. He was a safe space for those conversations and, in turn, he would talk about his life. He genuinely cared about people and their journeys in life. During his time on GH I witnessed him work hard and truly have respect for every single person in our building. I just cannot believe that his life was stolen from him the way it was. My heart hurts. RIP Johnny”

Bonnie Burroughs (ex-Gladys): “I am heartbroken and sickened by this terrible loss. Johnny I love you. My heart breaks for your real mom and your whole family. The world is darker now.”

Photo: ABC

Ashton Arbab (ex-Dev): “Absolutely heartbroken while typing this. Johnny Wactor was not only my tv dad for more than 25 episodes on General Hospital but he was a great human, a kind soul, an inspiration and a one of a kind actor. May your soul rest in peace. Heaven gained an Angel.”

Perry Chen (Brad): Johnny Wactor was a beautiful, beautiful soul. So talented. As you can see from the promo clip, always up for anything. Funny as all heck. Fit as all hell but also loved ice cream and ate all the junk I did as well. We all were cheated of many years with him.

Kelly Thiebaud (ex-Britt):  “Johnny Wactor, you were one of the good ones. I’m so sorry this happened to you. RIP”

Photo: ABC

William deVry (ex-Julian): “Honestly, words can’t begin 2 express the sadness with which 2 convey my feelings towards losing another GH Alum. The senselessness of this lose is beyond description. Johnny was such a good guy. Really horrible. RIP Johnny Wactor & much love & comfort to those who loved him.”

Laura Wright (Carly): “In shock. My heart breaks for Johnny’s family. You were an incredible man.”

Kathleen Gati (Obrecht): Another talented, kind and generous General Hospital colleague gone too soon. Deepest condolences to the family, friends, colleagues and fans of Johnny Wactor.”

Cynthia Watros (Nina): “What a kind soul. We lost an amazing man.”

Briana Lane (ex-Brook Lynn): “The world lost a wonderful person yesterday and a true gentleman to everyone he met. I feel lucky to have known him and to have experienced the warmth he exuded so effortlessly. RIP Johnny Wactor”

Lydia Look (Selina): “Johnny, I’m crying and will be for a bit. I knew you were talented when you simply just took your shirt off when the rest of us were trying to outdo each other with our skits. I also knew there & then that you were fine as wine 😻 I also saw how you’d let others take the spotlight whilst confident & loving in your own space. Most of all, I learnt what a magnificent human you were in our long car rides between fan events. I will cherish our chats. Thank you.”

The official General Hospital social media accounts on X and Instagram shared: “The entire General Hospital family is heartbroken to hear of Johnny Wactor’s untimely passing. He was truly one of a kind and a pleasure to work with each and every day. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his loved ones during this difficult time.”
