GH’s Jon Lindstrom Lands Recurring Role On Amazon’s ‘Bosch’

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!

Network Exec, Angelica McDaniel On Y&R’s Staying Power: “We Have This Award-Winning, Ratings-Generating, Money-Making Show, And It Really Adds Value To CBS.”

This week, The Young and the Restless celebrated 30 years as the number-one rated daytime soap opera.  That is a streak of 1,560 weeks in the top spot.

Angelica McDaniel, executive vp daytime programs and syndicated program development at CBS, spoke to the Hollywood Reporter on what has made this remarkable run; attributing it to strong storytelling and a cast that includes several beloved veterans who have been around the entire time.

The executive noted that while other soaps over the years have fallen by the wayside, and even though we are down to only four surviving network soap operas, that Y&R will be around with no end in sight.

McDaniel stated, “We have this award-winning, ratings-generating, money-making show, and it really adds value to CBS. We expect it be a part of our lineup in the future.”

She also added, “The Young and the Restless has some of the best actors in the industry — not in soaps, not in daytime, but in television. We have iconic, legacy characters that have been on our show for decades. Melody Thomas Scott will be celebrating her 40th year on the show in February. Peter Bergman just reached his 30th anniversary in November. Eric Braeden started in 1980. We just have an incredible arsenal of actors who are so talented and play these characters so well that you don’t even realize they’re characters. They become people who are part of your life, part of your daily existence.”

As for the continual investment and ways the audience watches the show on various platforms, McDaniel expresed: “The great thing about daytime television is we have loyal, passionate viewers, and they really like to tune in day and date. They want to stick with their stories and see what’s happening today. … Having said that, The Young and the Restless is also one of the top streamed shows on As trends evolve, we are where our viewers are, and we’re making shows readily accessible so they can get their fix and follow their stories.”

So, what do you think about Y&R? Will it remain if and when all other soaps have come to theirconclusion? Do you think it will continue on for years to come, given its position at number #1? Comment below!

Jacob Young Offers Up Thoughts On Rick and Maya’s Split On The Bold and the Beautiful

As fans of CBS Daytime’s The Bold and the Beautiful know, Daytime Emmy-winner Jacob Young (Rick Forrester) has been off the canvas for some time, and the actor had gone on recurring status with the series.

Young has been busy with other projects involving acting roles, his You Tube show, and music career, but certainly is open to a return to the soap opera.

But after the cover of this week’s Soap Opera Digest hit newsstands; which indicates that Rick and Maya have split with the return on-air of Karla Mosley (Maya) (who had been off the show for maternity leave), it clearly looks like the show is moving in a different direction.

Jacob took to Twitter to offer up his feelings on the matter tweeting: “I for one am incredibly sad and disappointed. Rick and Maya have split. (Love that would never die) I loved working with Karla Mosley.  it has been the highlight of my 21 year career in daytime. TRUST ME when I say your opinion matters.”

Since that posting, fans of the couple known as #Raya, have been voicing their thoughts and sharing photos of the on-screen duo.  Young responded to one in particular saying, “Who remembers this? Gosh, I miss Maya.”  In it,the posting read: “This is heartbreaking, Raya was the only example of what true love looks like on that soap!”

Previously, B&B has told the emotional and socially-relevant love story of a transgender woman falling in love with one of the men of the wealthy and renowned Forrester family.

So, what do you think of Jacob’s comments?  Do you want Rick back on the canvas?  What should then happen next for Maya with no Rick?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
