Looks like another sexy heartthrob is on his way to Port Charles in 2015 with casting news today out of ABC’s General Hospital.

The soap opera is looking to cast the contract role of a “Caucasian, late 20’s. Handsome, dynamic, sexy.  A charming bad boy who gets in and out of trouble.”

So, who could be the next bad boy on GH for someone on the canvas to be smitten with? Who could this guy be related to on the current canvas when he arrives on the scene?

Put on your casting director hats again today, and let us know is there anyone who had a role on the soaps in the past, you think could fit the bill? Or, is there someone from primetime TV that you would love to see nab a part on GH?  Or, perhaps an intriguing newcomer you know about it?  Share your casting considerations in the comment section below!

What was the point o “trimming” the cast recently, if all they’re going to do is stuff it back up again? I don’t even watch anymore, and even I think it’s criminal casting John York to the side. How insulting to this longtime, loyal actor. Guza/Phelps never downgraded him, but oh look! Ron and rank have no problem with it.

But then again, “Caucasian, late 20′s. Handsome, dynamic, sexy”? I guess those characteristic are too hard to find on soaps these days. What out of the box kind of thinking will they come up with next????

I do not see the cast being ”trimmed” I do see some cast members doing other projects and all are still of the GH cast.. GH has short stint/guest appearances that can be in story for any length of time, it varies.. the think vets like to come in and out but not stay.. I’d bet RC and FV would give much to have the character Johnny Z/Brandon back, yahbetcha ..! It is not always what RC or anyone else would like it is if the person/actor wants to be back and how much time he/she wants to be back..… Read more »

It was dubbed by media outlets that the 3 recent downgrades were for that purpose. Most began their coverage saying that it was “a long time coming” because of how much bigger and bigger the cast was becoming. But to be fair, I didn’t see it as a trim either. 3 in a lineup of 40+ is not a trim…it’s one of those haircuts you have to flaunt in people’s faces before they say, “Hey, is that a new shirt?”. However, I don’t think you can make blanket statements like ones you make. I think you are projecting your own… Read more »

su0000, I like your idea of Ned having a child out there to shake things up. Why not just recast Dylan?

York’s contract didn’t guarantee him many episodes anyway. My guess is he will be seen just as with the same frequency now that he is recurring. The upside for the actor is he can audition for different roles without being tied down. If recurring is good enough for Felicia, Lucy, and Duke I’m sure it will work just fine for Mac.

I’d rather see more of Mac, Lucy, Duke and Scott. They ARE GH…or at least part of the original crew. While I welcome new characters…I have no problem with that…I don’t like to see familiar, loved characters pushed to the side to make way for them. As for a hot, young actor? Love John-Paul Lavoisier, Mark Lawson or David Gregory…all from OLTL and all good actors/stunning guys. Not sure if Ron and Frank would use any of them for fear of the backlash by anti OTL people who complain GH is being overrun by OLTL people. Even with that, hope… Read more »

That was my suggestion, too! I wonder if the character is Tracy’s son Dillon? If so, Lavoisier would be perfect to trade barbs with La Quartermaine.

Steve B signed another year with Y&R but he was a yawn anyway as Jason was written…he is still a BIGGER yawn as Dylan.

Another character who will probably drool all over Kiki. Blech.

If anything, that age group needs some girls. Why is Kiki the only leading lady in that age group?

Ces

I think Morgan needs a girl for sure. Rosalie isn’t even in their age group and looks too old for Morgan and Michael – plus she already gave Michael the goods so she’s pretty useless now.

Can we not get Steve Webber, Jax, or Ethan back. Maybe this IS an Ethan recast!! I think I say this every time there is a casting call but can we please 1) have the character tied to on canvas, legacy families (like the Q’s or perhaps a long lost son of Mac’s, or a Hardy character) and 2) can we get someone we miss seeing from another soap, especially a cancelled one. Having said that, there are not a lot of past soap-ers in that age range compared to all those in the late 30s, 40s & up. Here… Read more »

I totally agree about Blake Hood! He was really good as Kyle, he looked exactly like a younger version of Jack – even his personality was similar. Hartley Sawyer on the other hand, was terrible in the role. Seriously, one of the worst recasts in recent Y&R history. I didn’t see the point of the recast, especially for someone who didn’t fit the part at all.

I like the idea of Casey Diedrick! He’s very talented and would fit the bad boy role well.

Blake and Peter were great. Hartley was horrible!

LUCKY or ETHAN please!

Jimmy

How about both? It’d be great for Nathan Parsons and Jonathan Jackson to come back, but it seems like they’re both happy in primetime. I still really think Lucky, Ethan and especially LAURA should have been here for the whole Fluke story.

Timmm
Guest
Timmm

Thats a huge hole. Luke/Fluke and no Genie or Julie. Jonathan would probably only return if they killed off Luke and Anthony retires because the two actors were close and have a great deal of respect for each other.

This sounds like Dillon Quatermaine, Tracy’s son and Ned’s brother. FV and RC love casting young, hot men. Geez, guess Ryan Paevey is old news LOL. But love beefing up the Quartermaines!!!!!

Jimmy

I really hope it’s Dillon too. If it is, I suggest David Tom for the role. If the casting call is for a different role, then maybe Casey Deidrick?

Timmm

Yeah I like David Thom. He is a good actor. He didnt cut it this time as Billy because the character grew too much.

David Tom would be an AWESOME Dillon Quartermaine!!!

If they are to make something out of Rosalie, then maybe it is a relative of hers. I mean they have to reveal this big, bad secret of hers one of these days and I am sure there is someone we have not been introduced to yet that is involved.

Jimmy

I really hope this casting call is for a recast of Ethan, Lucky or Dillon and not a brand new role, unless they plan to tie him to the canvas somehow. And to be honest, if they are planning to add another 20-something character to the canvas, it should be a recast Serena Baldwin. Scott is in town and she’s a legacy character that could potentially shake it up with Micheal, Morgan and Kiki. Seeing as Kiki is the only girl in town in that age range, the last thing we need is a new character drooling all over her.… Read more »

Yes, Michael Muhney sure gets my vote. The only problem is he is busy making movies. He will start filming his 4th movie in January. I sure do miss his gorgeous face on my TV Screen. But his Christmas movie is coming up Dec. 20th. Cannot wait to see it. He was the most talented daytime t.v. actor in forever. Love his talent. I am a Muhney fan for life.

I hope this is a Dylan Q recast, but I think Dylan is possibly a few years older. If it is DQ, I always thought JPL or Josh Kelly would be great in the role. If not, I could see Casey Diederick in the role described.

When Scott Clifton and JPL were both on OLTL you could hardly tell them apart. lol.

No new characters are needed, there are so many characters on GH that are not used enough. But if I had to choose it would be Dillon!! We need our Quartermaines back on the show 🙂

Let’s just bring Michael Muhney on and get it over with. His name comes up a lot.
As far as SB goes, leave him where he is. He seems to be happy there.
I don’t miss him at all. Just my opinion.

I am at such a loss as to what Michael did that was so fascinating. He played every scene with the same.expreasion…whether he was sayig Hi or I Am Going To Kill You. I much prefer Justin H as Adam.

No, you have MM mixed up with Steve Burton. Steve is the one who plays every scene with the same expression. Michael Muhney was the best thing that ever happened to Y&R. Jill Farren Phelps destroyed Y&R and Bill Bells legacy.

Um…no…I said MM and I meant MM.

That would be beyond awesome. But that would mean RC would have to dig into the glorious past of the show and the Quartermaine’s, and introduce a character with believable family ties that viewers could immediately root for and love. And well..he doesn’t do that.

I loved John-Paul Lavoisier as Rex and he would be good but if it is Dillon why don’t they try for Scott Clifton. Hope his love interest on Bold and Beautiful, Kimberly Matula is leaving B&B. Maybe Scott would be interested in coming back as Dillon.

When will Michael Muhney appear as A.J.? He didn’t die but was given a drug (like Juliet) to make him appear dead. Then he was smuggled to a long term care facility to recoup. Monica was behind it in order to protect him from Sonny.

GH’s Josh Swickard Stars in HBO Max Film ‘A Hollywood Christmas’

Circle Thursday, December 1st! That’s when you can see General Hospital’s Josh Swickard (Chase) in yet another holiday film.  This time, Swickard stars alongside Jessika Van in A H0llywood Christmas streaming on HBO Max.

In story, A Hollywood Christmas follows Jessica, a successful Christmas movie director, who begins living her own real-life Christmas movie when a handsome television executive named Christopher (played by Swickard), shows up on the set.

Sent by the network to decide if producing Christmas movies are worth the expense, Christopher’s presence threatens to halt production on Jessica’s latest film. With Christopher looking over her shoulder on behalf of the network, Jessica now has to juggle: actors on the set falling in and out of love, an elf dog, and her own romantic feelings for the network exec!

As many are aware, Josh stars in many holiday films, so it’s a bit of send-up about a guy who is in Christmas movies starring in a movie about the making of one.

Warner Brothers posted tune-in info on their official Instagram a few days ago, sharing, “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… #AHollywoodChristmas premieres in SIX Days! Spend the #HolidaysWithHBOMax.”

You can check out the trailer below.

Will you be checking out Josh in ‘A Hollywood Christmas’ starting this Thursday? Comment below.

GH’s Kelly Thiebaud Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

In heartbreaking scenes on last week’s episodes of General Hospital, Dr. Britt Westbourne (Kelly Thiebaud) gets the news she has feared for quite some time – that her battle with Huntington’s disease has progressed even further than she imagined.

The moments were all played with devastating perfection by Daytime Emmy winner, Kelly Thiebaud, who has GH fans know will be departing the ABC daytime drama series soon.

In story, Austin (Roger Howarth) set up a consultation with a Huntington’s Disease expert, Dr. Talone. When the three meet to discuss Britt’s case, she learns that symptoms she thought were stress from being on the run a few years ago, and when she was in prison, were the early manifestations of the disease.

After Dr. Talone examines Britt, she reveals that Britt now has the signs of stage three Huntington’s.  As for her prognosis, Britt will have ‘significant cognitive impairment’, and while she was anywhere between five to fifteen years in her lifespan, it could be as soon as eighteen months when Britt will need assisted living and full-time care.

When Dr. Talone exits, Austin offers to stay with Britt, but she asks for him to leave her office so she can be alone.  Once by herself and overcome with the news she received (and looking at her framed medical license and business card which says that Britt is Co-Chief of Staff of General Hospital), she finally loses it and tears up her office.  Cody (Josh Kelly) comes upon her, when she is left holding the necklace she found in Peter’s possessions which are the diamonds of the Ice Princess.

Britt is in tears and tells Cody that when she found out her father, Faison had died, she thought it was finally over. However, his reach extends far beyond the grave! Britt is in disbelief that she wasted so much time seeking his approval.  Cody tries to calm Britt down by telling her she is worth loving.  Britt remarks, “Even with what’s been passed down to me?”  Cody is confused and thinks she is talking about the necklace which now makes Britt believe that Cody was only into her for the diamonds.

Courtesy/ABC

Later, in the most gut-wrenching and emotional scenes, Britt confesses to her mother, Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) that her disease has progressed. Obrecht wants to get her to a specialist in Toronto, but Britt says she just met with her and she informs her mother she has five to fifteen years to live – and a year and a half before she may require full-time care.  Obrecht promises they will fight this. An overcome Britt asks her to just stop because she doesn’t need a doctor … she needs a mom.  The two embrace, but Obrecht cries Britt deserved a better mother than her. Kathleen Gati and Kelly Thiebaud were extremely touching and effective in these scenes.

When looking at the totality of the arc of this story that played out last week, and the understated and beautiful work of Kelly Thiebaud, it is without question Michael Fairman TV gives our Power Performance of the Week honors to Kelly.

So, what did you think of Kelly’s performances as Britt learns what she will now be faced with in the years ahead and the aftermath? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GH’s Kathleen Gati on Liesl Learning Britt is Sick: “This Was the Most Painful and Profound Episode I Have Filmed in 10 Years”

This week in a preview of a heartbreaking episode of General Hospital, Liesl (Kathleen Gati) will learn her daughter, Britt (Kelly Thiebaud), now has developed symptoms of Huntington’s Disease and its progression is making Dr. Westbourne very sick.

In story, look for Britt to confide in her mother, noting that that the disease is beginning to overtake her body.

Liesl’s portrayer, Kathleen Gati shared with Soap Opera Digest (in their latest issue on newsstand now), just how mutter will react to the news.

Gati expressed: “I have to say this is the most painful and profound episode I have filmed in 10 years.”  Kathleen has played the role of Dr, Liesl Obrecht since 2012.

She goes on to say, “Liesl puts her doctors hat on to give hope to herself and to Britta, encouraging her that they are both well-trained doctors and can find a way to help Britta.”

However, that’s not what Britt wants to hear.  She needs her mother, and the support and comfort from her, at this devastating time in her life.

Kathleen shares it’s at that point that Liesl realizes she needs to stop all the medical talk and just be there for her daughter.

So, are you looking forward to the scenes between Britt and Liesl?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
