General Hospital Has Found Their New Jordan

Photo: IMDB

Since Vinessa Antoine is exiting General Hospital to star in new Canadian drama series Diggstown, the powers-that-be at the series have decided to recast the role of Jordan Ashford, as previously noted.

Now comes word today from Soap Opera Digest that GH has found their new commissioner as actress Briana Nicole Henry steps in to the role at the PCPD.

Henry will begin shooting new episodes this month, which means look for nuJordan to appear sometime in September on the ABC drama series. Antoine has played the role since 2014.

This is not Briana’s first foray into soaps; while attending USC she was tapped for a recurring role on The Young and the Restless. 

In primetime she has appeared on” NBC’s Undateable, CW’s Jane the Virgin, ABC’s Stitchers, and more recently the HBO movie, Insecure. 

So, ready to give Briana a chance as the recast Jordan?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Absolutely, she’ll be given a chance by me. Unfortunately I don’t watch the show anymore these days, but if the show can lure me back, I’d be interested in checking out the new actress.

I will sincerely miss Vinessa Antoine, but she is going to shine on Diggstown, and I am hoping that an American network or streaming platform picks the series up! As for her replacement, welcome Briana Nicole Henry! I wish her nothing but the best; I vaguely remember her from The Young and the Restless, and feel as if she’s going to be great in the role!

I am absolutely ready to give her a chance. All actors coming onto the show, whether they are recasts or not, deserve the opportunity to show what they can do and what they can bring to the show. Sometimes the recasts are better than the actors they are replacing (and sometimes they are not). So, welcome Ms. Henry to GH and the role of Jordan!

I’m gonna go with you on that, Mister Media. Some recasts (Billy Miller and Gina Tognoni on Y&R; Laura Wright on GH) have been spectacular successes, so why not give the gal a chance?

The Jordan character has No Purpose.
That character is void of a personalty= blah.
Jordan should have been gone a long time ago.

Curtis should be the commissioner.

So, as for the recasting of Jordan well, it was not necessary, and I am not feeling anything over it.

SuOOO, maybe she will bring more to the role of Jordan, than V.A. Maybe it wasn’t the character we didn’t care for, so hopefully our newbie will bring in a breath of fresh air. I remember liking her on Y&R. Hey, I am trying to convince myself here too!

Hi Violet ..
It has nothing to do with the actor its the character.
Jordan is beyond empty. She does nothing of interest
Jordan is just there like wallpaper.
I highly doubt these writers will do anything differently with the character.

0ooh lordy! the/her upcoming ‘therapy’ session – I will FF through that stale junk, I have zero interest in watching their therapy 0ooh for the boring misery. LOL

Jordan needs to be recreated and given a gripping personality other than a doorknob.

@su…You have so nailed the very essence of the character of Jordan…save for her initial appearance as TJ’s long-absent mother, she’s never had any real point for existing in Port Charles….most especially as a really ineffectual PCPD commish when GH already had plenty of others who could have far more plausibly filled that role: Mac, Anna or even a returning Scorpio or Frisco. It never made any sense to put this character in that position just as a means of keeping her in town. I also didn’t care for her pairing with Curtis…he could do much better, so I guess… Read more »

Hi, Shabelle,
Agreed! I like Mac and Felicia….and, Jordan is not relevant: well put ny you and su.
Curtis is HOT!! Thus, if we must have a Jordan, I’d rather see Briana strut her pumps…..

Me as well, Susan. But I am hoping that MM will play Curtis’s ex girl friend whom Stella contacted. She would be amazing with Curtis. I can already see the fireworks….or the train going through the tunnel–choose your favorite metaphor.

From the first time “Jordan” was introduced, everything about the character seemed pretty bogus. She’s a DEA agent who just happens to be assigned to bust the Jerome organization in the same little town where she sent her son TJ to live years earlier. Then when she can’t bust Julian, she’s fired from the DEA and somehow winds up as some “special agent” who is supposed to bust Sonny, but all she does is arrest Sonny’s underling (Shawn) for a crime (shooting Hayden) he didn’t even commit. And for all that she’s rewarded with the job of Police Commissioner! Most… Read more »

I agree with a few others; why is Jordan police commissioner to begin with? They got rid of Mac, replaced him with Anna and replaced her with Jordan. So they took two vets, one who they discarded from the show completely to make a completely new character the the head of the police. It’s beyond obvious that this is attempted “diversity.” There should be a way of incorporating people from all backgrounds on to shows (and not just African Americans) without getting rid of established beloved characters like Mac who should have stayed the commish. With that said I like… Read more »

Rebecca, as I said before, Jordan would have made a much better floor manager at Forever 21. I really never saw her as a police commissioner. Civilians are constantly solving crimes for her as well as apprehending criminals, and yet, she accepts the credit for a job well done. I am afraid this character has been written as being dumber than a box of rocks.
But I bet she’d be fantastic at merchandising the Forever 21 stock!

Hey, Harry! Long time; I just mentioned you were MIA. Glad to see you’re back.

Maybe with a new actress they’ll also think of a more creative story for the character, starting with dumping her ummmmmm…behind…as the commissioner and reinstating Mac. Ugh. That’s not going to happen….

I do not like the recasting Vinessa was so amazing I am going to have difficulty accepting this new acter who is nothing like Vinessa in any shape or form.
This is so sad and difficult!!+

Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes OUT at ABC and ‘GMA3’

It’s not ending well for Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes. The former GMA3 co-hosts, who had their affair come to light publicly, have been let go by ABC after a lengthy mediation session on Thursday.

Now, the network has severed all ties with Robach and Holmes and they will receive payouts of their contracts.

According to TMZ: the long mediation session was “extremely contentious,” with ABC reps accusing both Amy and T.J. of various forms of misconduct, which one source characterized as “a witch hunt.”

They go on detail that Amy and T.J were told that they did not handle their romance appropriately by waiting too long to disclose it to ABC executives.

ABC expressed that their “behavior on set” was “uncomfortable” for some ABC staff.

Page Six is also reporting that their source shared from the talks, that unless ABC reaches a satisfactory departure agreement with both Amy and T.J., they would both be looking at filing lawsuits against the network.

In additional accusations, ABC said alcohol had been found in Robach’s dressing room.  However, that was disputed as ABC executives had gifted liquor bottles to Robach and other on-air ABC talent. Robach was also accused of showing up “drunk” to work after attending the College Football National Championship last year.  Amy claims she was just tired.

So, what do you think of Robach and Holmes being given the hook by ABC and being show the front door? Comment below.

Alec Baldwin to Face Involuntary Manslaughter Charges in ‘Rust’ Shooting of Halyna Hutchins

Charges were announced today by Santa Fe District Attorney, Mary Carmack-Altwies in the shooting on the set of the film, Rust fatally killing director Halyna Hutchins.

Alec Baldwin (ex-The Doctor and Knots Landing) has been charged with involuntary manslaughter along with the film’s armorer,  Hannah Gutierrez Reed.

The D.A. outlined why the deadly on-set shooting could result in criminal charges regardless of whether it was an accident.  In a statement, she shared: “After a thorough review of the evidence and the laws of the state of New Mexico, I have determined that there is sufficient evidence to file criminal charges against Alec Baldwin and other members of the Rust film crew. On my watch, no one is above the law, and everyone deserves justice.

In charges set to be filed by the end of January, Baldwin and Gutierrez-Reed will each be charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter in Hutchins’ death.

Baldwin’s attorney, Luke Nikas, said this about the charges: “This decision distorts Halyna Hutchins’ tragic death and represents a terrible miscarriage of justice. Mr. Baldwin had no reason to believe there was a live bullet in the gun – or anywhere on the movie set. He relied on the professionals with whom he worked, who assured him the gun did not have live rounds. We will fight these charges, and we will win.”

Andrea Reeb, the special prosecutor for the case said: “If any one of these three people: Alec Baldwin, Hannah Gutierrez Reed, or David Halls (assistant director, Rust) had done their job, Halyna Hutchins would be alive today. It’s that simple.  The evidence clearly shows a pattern of criminal disregard for safety on the ‘Rust’ film set. In New Mexico, there is no room for film sets that don’t take our state’s commitment to gun safety and public safety seriously.”

What do you think about the charges levied on Alec Baldwin? Comment below.
