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 »

Serena would be good if Scotty isnt on the back burner.

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.

General Hospital

GH’s Michael Easton and Finola Hughes Deliver the ‘Power Performances of the Week’

It was an emotional week of episodes on General Hospital as the double-wedding of Finn (Michael Easton) and Anna (Finola Hughes), and Peter (Wes Ramsey) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms) took a double nose-dive.

Each installment left us wondering if either couple would actually get hitched, but when Finn and Anna were the first to combust and not Peter and Maxie, it set the stage for two beloved soap veterans to once again, remind us all, why they are always at the top of the game when required to play high drama that tugs at the heartstrings.

In story, Finn is gut-punched, (and no one can play that better than Michael Easton), when Anna reveals that she knew that Peter was not her biological son and had done all the horrific deeds he has been hiding, in an effort to stop Maxie from marrying Peter.  When Finn realizes Anna confided in Valentin (James Patrick Stuart), and they were working together to bring Peter down it was too much for him to take.

Finn walks out on their wedding.  Alone and with tears welling up in his eyes, Finn feels his chance at love is dashed again.  Add to the fact, he has DNA results to prove if he is Chase’s (Josh Swickard) father and not his brother, or not, and the guy has been through the wringer of late.

As for Anna, she has literally imploded her own life, while trying to save others, after realizing the error of her ways; constantly putting her faith in Peter.  When she comes to visit Finn, she knows no matter what she says to Finn it looks bad.  She sees how she has hurt him, and hopes they can still repair their now fractured relationship, but she has to stop Peter and help her God-daughter, Maxie from making the biggest mistake of her life, so she leaves him to go back to the scene of the double-wedding.

Later in the week, Anna shares a heartfelt scene with her ex Robert Scorpio (Tristan Rogers), whom she knows she can have an honest conversation knowing her life of espionage and their shared history.  Meanwhile, Jackie (Kim Delaney) and Finn’s pull is there as well, as it appears Jackie’s attraction to Finn still remains all these years later when he visits her shortly after being blindsided by Anna at the nuptials.

Throughout the week, Easton and Hughes played all the nuances of their character’s emotional life, as the audience witnessed which just might be the end of the line for Finn and Anna.

For all of these reasons and more, Michael Fairman TV names Michael and Finola’s work, The Power Performances of the Week.

So, let us know, what did you think of what happened to Finn and Anna? The double-wedding fiasco? Did you enjoy Michael and Finola’s scenes? Comment below.

GH’s Wes Ramsey Makes Statement on Criticism, Social Media, and Professionalism

General Hospital’s Wes Ramsey, who portrays polarizing character, Peter August on the ABC daytime drama series, responded to a recent take on his role from cast mate, Tristan Rogers (Scorpio) when a video made its way through social media.

The video was from a Cameo appearance, where Rogers offered an assessment of the Peter August storyline and expressed that while he knows Ramsey is a strong actor, he felt he was “wrong for the character” being that Peter was the son of the evil Faison played by Anders Hove.

Rogers also came to the defense of Ramsey and shared: “Don’t be too hard on Wes Ramsey. He’s got himself into a horrible storyline, and the storyline is the fault of the show. What they’ve literally done is they’ve painted themselves into a corner, and they don’t know how to get out of it.”

Currently, Peter’s story is front and center on GH with his wedding to Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and the fallout from all of the character’s dirty deeds.

Now Ramsey took to his Instagram account to address what transpired and his thoughts on the perils of social media, professionalism and acting, expressing: “Actors are storytellers, shapeshifters, chameleons. We’re also in the business of cultivating trust bc that’s how the best work is brought to life. We have to trust our imaginations, our instincts. We have to trust our fellow actors, because without them, there’s no scene to play. In the collaborative efforts of bringing any show to life, we also have to trust our directors each day to steer the arch of our story (like a conductor with a symphony) & trust our writers who are tasked with composing the symphonies we play out. I came up in a world of classical theater, where trusting the play, text, story is essential to the tightrope balancing act of making magic.  You will never hear me critique (on any public platform) the people responsible for the creative opportunities I enjoy each day. Without the trust of my writers, directors, producers & fellow actors, it would be impossible to live out my dreams. My job (& my only job) is to bring fearlessness, playfulness & passionate conviction to what has been created for me. My aim is to stretch myself (beyond the limits of where I think my boundaries may lye) each time I’m entrusted with material that allows those boundaries to be tested.

 

Every actor must believe they are the right person for their part or they will never achieve their potential, let alone surpass it. I was raised a gentleman & have two wonderful parents to thank for that, however, my polite personality (while rendering me easy to get along with on set) should have little bearing on my caliber of performance nor my castability as a professional.  I am leery of the pitfalls of social media & believe there are advantages to maintaining some mystery (even as a public figure) but I will always defend & protect what I hold dear (my job & my career) when they are publicly challenged, especially by those closest to me, whom I love & respect. Please know I bear no ill will. As a society, we are all still learning the full ramifications of living in an internet dominated culture. To all my many fans out there who offer encouragement & support, I hear you & am grateful for you. I’m having a blast… 🙂. Onward we go.”
