Looks Like General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom is one busy actor these days!  Now playing the dual roles of Ryan Chamberlain and Kevin Collins on the ABC daytime drama series, you will soon also be able to see him in Amazon’s long-running and most popular streaming series, Bosch.

According to casting news out of Deadline this week, Lindstrom will take on the recurring role of Lance Cronyn, a lawyer who goes toe-to-toe with the title role of homicide Detective Harry Bosch (Titus Welliver).

Even though soap fans know Jon from his  work on GH and ATWT, his primetime TV credits include S.W.A.T., NCIS and Blue Bloods, and he will be seen in the upcoming film, The Great Illusion. 

With Bosch’s fifth season currently in production and set to launch next year, Amazon already announced a week ago that the series has already been picked up for a sixth season.

And, if is you missed last week’s Soap Nation Live! podcast featuring Jon as one of the special guests, you can listen to the replay right here.

So, glad to  know Jon is going to be seen in multiple projects in 2019? Share your comments below.

FOR – ALL – the botched writing that goes on

Shelly and Chris… you are near the worst… since the fall season “premiered” @GH for 10 straight weeks in a row… GH is at an all time record low for the desired demographic 18-49 women .

you had a great story with Jon Lindstrom

Where was Felicia ?
why is the show focusing on Laura Wright ” Carly : so concerned with her next door cell mate ? who rapped SOS morse code shit ? Carly two nightmare’ has ruined this story. as the dullard Corinthos’ rally

I hope Jon Lindstrom masterclass’ this new venture.. he’s worth it

hi Patrick, how you doing?
Frank and Shelly are dying a slow agonizing death,,
Both are suffering from ideals and writers’ block = burned out..
It’s time for both to retire, they are doing more harm than good ..

Meanwhile; RC is doing wonders with Days ..

Patrick, I could not agree with you more. Jon Lindstrom is a gem and whether you like the Ryan story line or not, you have to admit that this story gave him the chance to show how fine tuned his acting chops are (forgive the mixed metaphor).

I agree, Patrick, the Carly show is nauseating. But I’ve said this before; she has a huge following and they’re playing to those fans. There are much more, it seems, that are Carly/Sonny fans than aren’t…or so it seems if you go by Facebook soap sites, Twitter, etc. They’re hugely popular and it’s crazy-making to those of us who aren’t. I can’t stand Carly; at all. So much so that I’d love them to write her off the show.

Jon Lindstrom is great. Always liked him and glad he FINALLY got a story. But, once again, you should hear the gripes “out there.” They just want the story to end. But then again, I think they want every story to end unless it’s Carly/Sonny centric. They shoudl just do a spinoff and let the rest of us get back to GH!

Well, I’m happy for Jon Lindstrom. He’s a wonderful actor, a real pro. But…am I alone in thinking this Ryan tale has outlived its shelf life? I normally hate evil twin stories anyway, though it did yield a great moment of unintentional laughter: when Laura confided in Lulu about the change in Kevin’s behavior, the ever-intrepid ACE Reporter blurted out, “I haven’t noticed anything”. She should have that printed on a T-shirt for daily use.

“I’ll have a Bloody Mary.” Buwhwwhahhaahahah!

Since Genie came back, Jon has been in more episodes than many contract performers. Being recurrring works for some actors (like Jon and Wally) who are able to book multiple shows and juggle their schedules.

I’ve always liked him and was so glad when he was brought back to GH. But, I’d much rather see him paired back with Lucy and hangin’ out with Felicia and his bestie, Mac, then be married to Laura. Though they’re “age appropriate” I just don’t like them together. Her character dulls him out. And, I’d love to see the foursome back that I just mentioned. He’s been great as Ryan; he walks around with the same clothes, demeanor as Kevin and yet you’re utterly convinced you’re watching a different character.

Congrats to him on his latest gig. I don’t watch Amazon so I won’t be able to see the show. I have no doubt he’ll do it justice. Just hope we don’t lose him on GH.

Jon together with Genie are one of the best couplings of #GH history. Jon only came back to the show when he was asked if he’d like to play Laura’s new love interest. He didn’t want to revisit a romantic relationship with Lucy,been there done that many times over. With Laura he’s said he couldn’t be happier working with such a wonder & iconic partner on screen & both are very happy & thousands of fans agree in the polls,on twitter etc. The time of Kevin/Lucy is far gone! Laura would never cheat on him & disgrace him like Lucy. I love their romance & Genie said in her last interview that Laura loves Kevin deeply & he’s the second true love of her life since Luke which says alot,their humor,respect,support,friendship,love,flirtiness & adult relationship is a breath of fresh air. Dealing with Lucy is dealing with a someone whose a child that just doesn’t grow up. Laura is a woman which is what Kevin so badly needs to stand by him & treat him the way he should be treated. The man has to be constantly looking over his shoulder with Lucy,she can’t be trusted. Loving #KevLaur & can’t wait until their united again!

To each his/her own. I wasn’t talking about who the actors liked working with or their preferences. I was talking about mine, as a viewer. And at the beginning, aside from the fact that I love Jon and was thrilled he was back on the show, they bored me. Neither was barely on; when they were the scenes were lifeless and I didn’t get a sense of them as a couple. Each time he made an overture she made some excuse. When they finally DID get together “Laura” was boring. Dull. She did nothing but visit Lulu and babysit Spencer. Which is all Kevin did with her. Laura made Kevin “old.” And I don’t mean old chronologically but in spirit; or lack thereof. All that was missing were rockers and him smoking a pipe while she crocheted.

Kevin and Lucy were a fun pair. They were friends with Mac and Felicia and they were fun to see together; like the adult versions of the old Lucky, Liz, Nicolas, Emily. This show is now minus adult friendships. They should never have let Mac and Felicia go. Another decision made to save budget and bring in younger viewers, less expensive actors.

IF Laura forgives Kevin (after initially loving the heck out of him once he’s found) for lying to her that Ryan was alive all this time, and they stay together, hopefully this round the writers will bring this couple to life. Two nice people; yes. But as a viewer I need more to keep me interested. Fun, romance, people to interact with other than Spencer would help.

And by the way, Laura cheated on Scotty (emotionally; don’t remember if she did physically) and broke his heart several times over.

I would love to see this series. I used to love the Michael Connelly Harry Bosh novels, and couldn’t get enough. I didn’t know about all the previous shows that have been on Amazon, and virtually nothing about streaming. Can anyone tell me who played the Harry Bosch role? Just re-read the above, and see it’s someone I am not familiar with, Titus Welliver, but he looks like someone I’d like to be familiar with,wink,wink!

New Details Emerge in Fatal Shooting of General Hospital’s Johnny Wactor; Was Protecting Female Co-Worker From Armed Car Thieves

The brother of Johnny Wactor (ex-Brando Corbin) has come forward with some new information on the act of violence that took the life of the General Hospital favorite on Saturday May 25th in the wee hours of the morning in downtown Los Angeles.

As valiant as man as Johnny was to all those who know and loved him, he was through and through that man till the very end. According to Grant Wactor, Johnny actually shielded a female co-worker at the time of the crime before he was fatally shot.  Three men were trying to steal Wactor’s catalytic converter from his vehicle, one of which fired the shot that killed the former GH star.

According to a new report from the Daily Mail, Wactor was leaving his side job as a bartender at a downtown LA rooftop bar with a female colleague at around 3:25am when he saw the three men near his vehicle at West Pico Boulevard and South Hope Street.

Believing he was being towed, he approached the men to try to discuss it. One of the men then looked up and pointed a gun at Wactor, who put his body in front of his female co-worker as he was shot. Police say, the three men were all wearing masks, and then fled the scene in another car.  The suspects currently remain at-large.

Grant commented on his brother’s last act of bravery, “We’re Southern, born and raised, and we would never let a female walk to their car by herself.” He added that Johnny, “Thought his truck was being towed. So he said something to the guys, like, ‘Hey, are you towing?’ And then once he turned around, he saw what was happening and he put his coworker behind him. And that’s when they shot him.

Sadly, Grant revealed, Johnny was shot in the chest, and that Johnny and his co-worker had to park about two blocks from the restaurant, so they were walking to their cars after they finished their shift when the incident unfolded.

Grant shared that he hopes justice will be served and the men are caught, “I hope they are able to track the people who did this. I am glad in a way that this is getting the publicity so that it could shed some light that things need to change, or find ways so that no one else has to experience this – whether it be a murder or being at the wrong place at the wrong time.”

In what has already been horrific that we lost Johnny to a senseless act of gun violence over an attempted theft, learning that the actor died right after protecting somebody else, only reinforces the kind of man Wactor was to all those who knew and loved him.
