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

Photo: IMDB

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.

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!

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

As one would expect, limiting contact, social distancing, regular temperature checks, ways to handle props, and a COVID-19 compliance officer for all productions are part of the proposal.   As well as virtual writers room meetings, avoiding filming on-location as much as possible and filming in front of large audiences.

So, glad to know that this major step has been taken to try to get production back on track in Hollywood and New York? Comment below.

British Soap ‘Coronation Street’ Set To Resume Production Next Week Following COVID-19 Shutdown

Will American soaps soon follow the Brits, and be able to start up your favorite soap towns again? While production entities await for guidelines from the state of California and the city of Los Angeles, across the bond, ITV’s Coronation Street has set next Tuesday, June 9th to begin filming new episodes of the popular drama.

Coronation Street had been on  10-week mandatory shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic sweeping our globe.  The return to start up the show keeps the soap on-air throughout July and then ongoing.  There will be three episodes filmed each week at their studios in Manchester.

Along with ITV’s Emmerdale, and  other programs, Coronation Street is returning to production under the UK’s guidelines and  safety protocols for COVID-19.

According to Deadline that will include: crew members designated to a specific studio or exterior lot  …  social distancing will be observed … cast and crew will have daily temperature checks, while older and more vulnerable members of the team won’t be part of the new episodes during the initial period of filming.

In a statement, John Whiston, ITV’s managing director of continuing drama, said: “Getting to this point has taken a huge amount of work and goodwill from a huge number of people, not least our cast and crew. With the peak past, all indications are that the time is right for a return to filming.  And with the extensive protocols we have put in place, we have made our workplace as safe as possible. I’m sure our audience will appreciate having the show they love continue on air. For many who have written in it is a vital escape from all the fears and stresses this virus brings in its wake.”
