Dillon Quartermaine (last played by The Bold and the Beautiful’s Scott Clifton) is coming home to Port Charles and General Hospital! 

However this time actor Robert Palmer Watkins takes on the role of Tracey Quartermaine’s (Jane Elliot)  youngest son beginning next week on all-new episodes of the long running ABC soap opera.

Watkins, who has appeared in the motion picture Frat House Musical, Safari and the supernatural web series Last Life among other projects, is set to bring Dillon back with some major sex appeal.

Emme Rylan (Lulu, GH) told Soap Opera Digest on the casting of Watkins: “I love Rob.  He is so much fun to work with. He is so prepared every single day and so freakin’ into it. They couldn’t have found a better guy.”

Excited of the news that Dillon Q is going to be back on the canvas?  Who do you think he will be romantically linked with?  Share your thoughts below on the casting of Robert Palmer Watkins!

He looks promising and is not bad on the eyes. While there are other options I would have chosen for recast in the role of Dillon, I only hope Ron does not tarnish the strong history Dillon has within the series, as both a previous character and as a Quartermaine. Look forward to his returning next week.

Dillon was born a year or two after Maxie so he should be a good 30 to 32. Please don’t put him in teen storylines.

Those days are over.

Maxie character skills be 28. The article says nothing about teen, but he would fall in the Micheal age range. Also Lulu/Maxie group. But would need to be a bit matured

I just did a search and there were some pictures of him without a shirt. He’s ripped. Unfortunately, I think a great legacy character is destined to become slimy eye candy. The fear of being tarnished will become reality.

Never heard of him before, but I’m willing to give him a chance. I’m excited that Dillon is finally coming back, his return has been long awaited. I was hoping they would cast Tom Pelphrey in the role, but I’m hoping for the best with Robert. Hopefully he’s a better actor than Ryan Paevey, Brytni Sarpy and Hayley Erin. Can’t stand any of them!

Dillon Quartermaine

Ned’s brother, Tracy’s son, Jason’s cousins. Ex-husband of Maxie’s deceased sister, Georgie. Lulu aborted his child-HATED THAT S/L!! Lots of history here!! Worked for Ned’s record label. Always wanted to work in entertainment industry. Couldn’t hang in w/ELQ shenanigans. Wasn’t his speed from what I remember. I liked the character, didn’t like the HW, Guza during his stint!

Always loved Scott Clifton. Not familiar with Robert Palmer Watkins. He’s a cutie. Bring it on!!!!

Your too young! Dillion was born in 1992, and is the son of Paul Hornsby and Tracy Quartermaine. Scott Clifton played him from 2003 to 2007. Lulu had a thing for him so maybe thats his angle or hers? Scott is not available but this recast shows promise.

AJ…we all occasionally deviate from the subject…most of us have that conversational rapport here whether someone reveals something personal about his or her life, talks about a prime time show, what career they’re in, etc. I specifically stated that the musician’s name came up because the first two of the new Dillon’s name is the same…so it hit me and I just thought to mention it. Albeit 12 years off…

The more Quartermaines, the better! I don’t care about any romantic entanglements. There just need to be a few more Q’s of both sexes to fend off Nikolas & Franco. Hurry up and remember your identity, Jason!

I just want Michael, now a Q, to get a run for his position at ELQ..

Hopefully Dillan will become CEO of the Quartermain company..

I don’t mind a little sparring for control of ELQ. That’s what made DALLAS after all. But, IMO, it should eventually be Michael. That’s who Edward wanted. I think Michael & Sabrina should takeover where Edward & Lila left off.

He is a good looking guy. I watched a demo reel of his acting and it was very good. Scott Clifton is unavailable so this is what you do. Its a shame Ned wont be around. Lets see how this guy is. I’m all for filling up that Quartermaine mansion. I hope he comes in and unseats Michael at ELQ.

hey Timmm, Robert’s demo reels are okay. I think he’s probably very likeable, definitely interesting, and I see the potential in him for landing a soap role. I hope he fits the role of Dillion, he’s got tough shoes to fill, however with the years that Dillion’s been off the canvas, it may work out really well for Robert. I’m glad GH is bringing back a Quartermaine, and give Jane Elliott some worthy material. Hopefully, Monica will pop in and welcome Dillion. WTH is MONICA??? I have to say, I’m really disappointed in how the show continues to leave her… Read more »

Jeremy, great post! Your right, with Dillion being off the canvas for so long he can make the character his own. Not having Monica on is a sin! I ASSume we will see her when Jake becomes Jason? Just like Bobbi, we will see her more now that Luke is leaving the canvas.

I don’t know why anyone’s against Michael. He’s always been a great guy…loyal to his family, gave AJ a chance and came to love him even after all the horrific brainwashing he was subjected to by Sonny and Carly against AJ. Michael’s perfectly in his right to have disowned Sonny and Carly…and I think it’s great he’s finally in the Q fold. I’d like to see the irony…the victory… of AJ’s son taking the position at ELQ that AJ was robbed of. I also think lil Avery/ AJ is in great, loving safe hands with him…

Fanny
Guest
Fanny

What I meant is that Michael simply is not ready to run ELQ, like some
Lone Ranger,without the benefit of Tracy’s WISDOM and knowledge
backing him up and while we’re at it through Dillon in the mix. Now
that starts to make sense. However HORRIBLE some of Michael ‘s
past has been and it Has, Sonny and Carly have ALWAYS loved &
adored him.

Shay
Guest

Here, here, Fanny! Mikey has become insufferable and obnoxious…plus, he has shown highly questionable judgment involving himself with the likes of Sappy. Hence, he needs to be taken down a few pegs and Dillon being “Tracy’s Boy” could be just the one to do it. I’m actually glad that this pivotal role has been recast because I couldn’t stand Scott Clifton’s pudgy punk filmmaker with the hurricane-forced hairdo….he was just an off-putting mess. Also, couldn’t stand him with the “precious” Georgie….he was far better with Lulu—then played by the much superior Julie Marie Berman— but their ill-fated hookup and resulting… Read more »

@Shay
Whatever possessed Michael to HIRE not one but two former nurses to help
him out… One of them is bound to have a script pad laying around, watch UR back.
Questionable judgment indeed, he’s the one who is in dire need of Parental
GUIDANCE. The courts ruling was RIDICULOUS giving him custody of Avery
when she has a maternal grandmother perfectly capable of raising her.
He’s needs to stop juggling all these things at once, caring for Avery as if he’s
her sole living relative, Commencing a relationship with sappy Sabriiiiina
WHY now & WHY her there’s no magic,no spark… finally saving ELQ.
Boy does he need HELP.

@ Shay..I couldn’t agree with U more about Julie M Berman, if they Insist on
Keeping the current actress in the role of Lulu, Julie could play another
character, like maybe a federal agent taking Anna’s place in her absence
since Finola is taking the summer off… Hence she “MEETS” Dante and
a HOT STEAMY Love affair takes place…….

Guest

Anyone but VAL-chops!!!!!

Shay
Guest

@Fanny….I still maintain that it was a gross error in judgment not to cast the popular and ever-missed JMB as Val. The contrasting visuals of old and nuLulu alone would have made for great viewing. Plus, there would have been an existing built-in chemistry between the characters of Dante and Val, should the showrunners choose to go the infidelity route…which I am certainly hoping is NOT the case! For the life of me, I simply cannot understand the value of the actress selected to portray “Val-Chops.” She’s not very good and highly annoying, and if she is intended to play… Read more »

@Shay…That would have been brilliant on their part, casting JMB as Val,
It would have been a match made in heaven. Obviously the writers don’t
READ these posts RC & FV should reconsider that oversight. It could
potentially increase their VIEWERSHIP!!!

Shay
Guest
Shay

@Fanny….As much as I have been bandying about the notion of JMB as “Val,” I cannot take credit for it. I previously read a spoiler that she was possibly headed back to GH in a new role described as a cousin of the present-day Lulu, and that idea really struck my fancy. Hence, when “Val-Chops” showed up and was clearly NOT Ms. Berman, I was quite disappointed! If the viewers were simply provided a rhyme or reason for the character and the particular actress cast in the role, it would be helpful toward accepting her. As it stands right now,… Read more »

Fanny…Once again..Disagree. Dillon, if they keep him true to character…has ZERO experience and ZERO interest in running ELQ. Regarding Michael, Carly and Sonny…doesn’t mater how much they loved him. They STOLE him from AJ…they BRUTALIZED the man. They poisoned Michael against him. The point is…though he was raised in love, and I don’t deny that he was…he was lied to his whole life. He was kept from AJ who was his biological father…who WANTED a relationship with him. Michael, as Sonny’s son, had to kill to protect his mother and sister, was shot and put in a coma, and went… Read more »

Oh, as for casting JMB as Valerie…I think it’s a ludicrous idea. Beyond distracting! JMB is sooo identified with the role of Lulu…there were so many fans clamoring for her return in the role (which by the way SHE decided to leave) that it’d almost be a parody. Would totally break the fourth wall…

@ Rebecca With all due respect… AJ had never sprouted wings on my watch, far from being angelic. Sonny,Carly,Monica,Alan,Jason,Edward….none of them were responsible for him picking up a drink or ten, he became a raging, jealous angry alcoholic all on his own. All that self hate spilled over dragging JASON along with him… And all Jason wanted was to help AJ,whom he loved. How about his connection/partnership w/ Faith Roscoe together they were evil Incarnate. Given..Carly & Sonny were hellish towards him but AJ wasn’t a day at the beach either. I’ve always really liked Michael he’s decent, fair and… Read more »

And with respect back, Fanny…AJ was an alcoholic. He had a disease. He also showed remorse and was devastated by the accident that caused Jason’s brain damage. On the other hand, Carly and Sonny are just selfish, egotistical, self-righteous people that hurt people that they believe deserve it. There’s no disease to blame. Just their whim. Sonny is a murderer. Pure and simple. His reason for taking Michael…so he claimed, was because Michael wouldn’t be safe around AJ. How beyond hypocritical is that? A mob boss…who has enemies that could wipe out his family on a dime, make his children… Read more »

@Fanny….You bring up many excellent points! Although I was a huge fan of Sean Kanan’s AJ, you correctly pegged him as no angel….when he returned the final time to the GH canvas, I had hoped that his myriad demons and bad behavior were truly a part of the past. He had a fresh start in Port Charles, and I was most encouraged with it, but alas, the writers had other ideas for the hapless Quartermaine heir and it was back to square one with the boozing and bumbling….I was disappointed and outraged when the character was once again killed off… Read more »

I also enjoyed Billy Warlocks AJ, big personality,good actor.
Little crumpet (that’s so sweeeeet).Love the way “Denise”
made Julian understand he didn’t step up, when it came to
keeping Avery in the family. Basically that should have been
his first priority, announcing it wasn’t going to continue on her
“Watch” gave her away. Just in case we didn’t already know it
by how she kept longingly looking in KiKi’s direction every now

@Fanny….I missed out on BW’s AJ….just wandered away from GH in favor of “Santa Barbara” after SK’s abrupt departure, but I do know that he was very good as “Ricky Flyer/Driscoll” on “Capitol.” That’s where I first encountered Mr. Warlock and his charms. As for “Denise,” I am loving the way she is “giving the business” to those around her (Julian, Sonny, etc….) in her no-nonsense, hilarious “New Yawker” way….it’s been a fun departure from the haughty Ava, but I have a feeling that the character will wear thin in short order, so I hope that the show runners have… Read more »

Well…there’s no “here, here” here! Wholeheartedly disagree with the assessments…for those few who have dubbed Sabrina “Sappy” there will be no clear sight. She, for those who enjoy or at least understand the psyche of the character…is portrayed as moral, competent, intelligent and compassionate. For anyone who saw her as otherwise simply didn’t/doesn’t understand the character. One might not like the actress; I do. However, that aside…Sabrina never had ill intentions, she loved with an open heart, gave love to Patrick, was maternal with Emma and suffered great loss…from Patrick to her baby. Still, after an emotional breakdown, she has… Read more »

Also view his cover of Millionaire by Bruno Mars with a couple of his friends on youtube. He has a really good singing voice. REALLY GOOD-guess he will be rotated into Nurse’s Ball 2016-lol.. Hope he sings on the show sometime. He looks like a soap actor. Nice speaking voice. Natural delivery from the acting videos I saw. He looks different on tape than in his photos. He should do well.

While I thought Michael Graziadei would have been a good Dillon Quartermaine recast I’m willing to give this guy a chance. GH usually has a good track record with finding new talent, especially the actors (Bryan Craig’s Morgan is a good example). Between Valerie and the recast Kiki though GH has lost some steam in finding new talented actresses. Valerie is not needed at all; and they should have had Kiki go off to school, or something, when Kristen Alderson left. At the end of the June 2 episode when the new Dillon showed up I was immediately like, Who’s… Read more »

Dillon will not be paired with Lulu. True, they are within the same age range and have an established friendship, but their parents are to be married making them step-siblings. The pairing would only be possible if Luke were to return to Laura, who coincidentally is coming back to the show. As long as he is not romantically linked to someone like Rosalie or Hayden we’re good; no logic to those choices. Dillon would need to be part of a couple that wouldn’t bore us with possible sexual chemistry but no other appeal. I mean look how long it took… Read more »

I would die if he were gay. But I would still love him as he is because no matter what preference he has he is super for this part. And he is gorgeous and a very nice guy. GH has some really great talented Actors and Actresses, they keep me intrigued each one of them. But Dillon is my babe on GH.

I think they should give Dillon a chance. He is a really good actor I can see, he plays his role very well. Who would not like watching him. He can act, sing and dance. I have been watching GH since I was 4 years old and I am addicted to this Soap and he makes it all much better, among other cast member’s such as Sonny, Carly, Michael etc. (Dillon, k/a Robert) keep up the terrific work. You are definitely eye candy and such a nice guy all my best. Debbie from Broolyn, NY

I think this is great, he is a really good actor. I watch and listen to everything he says and does and he is perfect for this role. In my next life I hope to be an actress so I have the pleasure of meeting and hopefully get to work with him. All my best, always.

General Hospital’s Halloween Week Promo Touts Wicked Surprises

Looks like everyone will be on edge this week as Halloween comes to Port Charles.  In the newly-released ABC promo for General Hospital, it reveals that this spooky week of episodes will be a rollercoaster ride, featuring wicked surprises, and killer costumes.

After Epiphany (Sonya Eddy) scolds Franco (Roger Howarth) for having his hand in the candy jar, Anna (Finola Hughes) or is it? … is donning a black witches hat. Jackie (Kim Delaney) is seen opening her door, juxtaposed with Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) saying “trick or treat”. But, is he actually at the door of someone else?

Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) asks Ava (Maura West), “Darling, what are you holding behind your back?” That is revealed to be a knife, but is it Ava who truly has the knife?

 

Meanwhile, Jason (Steve Burton) is looking around in the dark.  Elsewhere, Peter is jumpy.  So much so that Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) utters, “Looks like you’ve seen a ghost.”

Add all that to last Friday’s episode of GH where Carly(Laura Wright) thinks she saw Nelle’s (Chloe Lanier) hand come out of her grave and attack her! Is Nelle (Chloe Lanier) going to be proven to be alive? And if so, will she pop up on Halloween and scare the hell out of Carly?

Watch the promo below, then let us know what you think will happen this week on General Hospital via the comment section.
