GH's Chad Duell on getting the role of Michael, jail time & high school drama!

Chad Duell spoke to Crushable.com all about his young career, and what led him to the soap world, and playing the imprisoned Michael Corinthos on General Hospital. According to the Crushable post on how he took over the role of Michael from his predecessor, Drew Garrett they related:  “Drew Garrett won the role of Michael Corinthos in April 2009,  and later, Chad got the part when Drew’s contract expired, and producers then scrapped a new character they had developed for him. (Instead of Michael, he would’ve been a love interest for Kristina Corinthos Davis, who is Michael’s sister.)”

Here are a few excerpts of interest from the feature post:

Duell on how he feels on Michael’s current jail time: “He’s a tough kid. He doesn’t want to be in the mob. If you’re ever a kid .. . in jail with scary people around you, you’re gonna be a freaked-out shell of a kid. I like showing more sides to him. I want (to show) his heart more than his anger. I don’t want him to be one way.”

Duell, who was inspired by Tom Cruise’s acting and commentary on the DVD of Cruise’s movie Vanilla Sky to get into acting on how it made his high school years tough:.  “It was horrible for me.  I was mocked for being into drama.  I got to a point where I wanted to be by myself. I’m kind of a loner. I don’t like to go to parties.”

Sorry Chad doesn’t have that “it factor” about him like Drew does.He is not the worst actor but I have lost more and more intrest in Michael and GH as a whole.Especially with GUza’s love of dark s/l too much stuff in the real world like that.

Hmmm, I think the “it factor” is fairly subjective. Drew was a very undeveloped actor – you can see Chad has much more depth. I can’t wait to see how he plays Michael through this summer 🙂

And Chad’s expierence is What again??? Chad’s depth is just a confused look on his face and if Drew was so undeveloped how is it he is a strong contender for an Emmy? Drew has a spark Chad fizzles and alot of fans are not happy with the recast or the current s/l

He just seems like a better actor to me. He is far more subtle. Though, to be fair to Drew – the character of Michael was written pretty poorly when he had it – so I’m sure he did the best he could.

As far as the emmy nod – I personally don’t get them. How is it that more GHers aren’t up there?

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Peter’s On Ice, But Is He “Dead” Dead?

Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital provided more to the back-story of what Finn (Michael Easton) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) did with Peter’s (Wes Ramsey) body after Finn tussled with the guy and Peter fell down the stairwell and hitting his head on the wall, to his supposed death.

In story, Liz became worried when thinking back to how she suggested to Finn – and that they carried out –  putting Peter’s body in a freezer in the sub-basement of the hospital.

As she recalls their plot (to keep Peter’s body from being discovered until they have time to move him permanently), Anna  (Finola Hughes) is on the move of the hospital and uncovers a hidden service elevator that might just take her to the sub-basement, where she could discover Peter’s lifeless body.

But hold the phone! While we know it was revealed that Wes Ramsey departed GH, could it be that Anna could discover the freezer with no sign of Peter in it? Do you really think his reign of terror is over given that he is Cesar Faison’s bio-son?

Share your thoughts: Do you think Peter is really dead, or will the character come back to haunt everyone and try to get revenge on all who tried to stand in his way of Maxie and his child? Comment below.
