Cohen has been tapped to play the son of Jack Garrett (Gary Sinise).  In story, Ryan is following in his father’s footsteps by becoming a top agent for the FBI.

Beyond Borders executive producer Adam Glass, a former writer/EP on Supernatural, who worked with Cohen when he appeared as John Winchester, announced the casting news via his Twitter account. 

In an update on Sunday, Glass clarified that Cohen is not leaving GH for this, in case some fans of the soap were concerned. Adam tweeted:  “A special thanks to @GeneralHospital for being so kind in working with us to make @mattcohen4real part of #CMBB this year. #ClassAct #SPN”

Soap schedules give a lot of time off to do other things.

He’s so cute. Hope this doesn’t negatively impact his role on GH, which is one of the few “new trash” on the show that I like.

Griffen seemed to show promise in the beginning-he should had been Anna’s nephew and Nathan’s brother who shared the same father-Valentin…Anna’s sister and Valentin could had met which would blood tie him to many characters but this story with Claudette which i thought would be interesting with Bree just doesnt interest me-too predictable been there done that storytelling!!!

He did come from prime time I think it’s great clearly his contract allows for him to work outside of GH and for a compitting network, I get to see him as an FBI agent now too, it’s win win for me as a fan. Just don’t leave GH anytime soon please!

Congratulations to Matt on getting this primetime role. It doesn’t get much better than playing the son of Gary Sinise, one of Hollywood’s finest actors. I’m a fan of Beyond Borders, having watched the full first season. I think Matt will fit in very nicely with the rest of the cast, thought I think he’ll find the rate at which they tape primetime shows very slow compared with soaps. He’ll be great.

The character Griffin Munro, is drab..
He has no fire, no real purpose, no intruge, no nothing.
He is simply eye candy .
Griffin is a bore lol .. not the actors fault, not at all.
It is the writing of the character and the persona of the character , and that is eehhh..

I like ”Criminal Minds, Beyond Borders” and looking forward to seeing Matt in a hard drama role !
(he is soooo wasted with GH))

“Drab”? “No fire”? Again, are we watching the same show, you and I? Got those glasses at the ready–again? LOL 🙂

Didn’t you think he was just great with Finola in their scenes??

He has been great with Finola & Brooklyn as well as good with many others. I’m so happy they hired someone dedicated to his craft to be Finola’s stepson and a new doc on the show. His last rites scenes was nothing less than fantastic with so much fire.

Is he leaving gh?

Good, hopefully Beyond Borders will cast him as a series regular so he’ll be off GH. He’s not a good actor, and Griffin is not needed, nor is he an interesting character.

The writers will make him the killer at GH

Congrats to Matt; haven’t watched Beyond Borders but between Matt and the fabulous Gary Sinise I’ll check it out.

They have completely wasted him on GH. He’s too mellow, lol. As for the story with Griffin, Nathan and Claudia, I think this is the worst GH has done yet in terms of dropping a story. They literally, FINALLY, had Nathan find out who he is…he slams him against the wall…and then nothing. Really poor mapping out their stories…too much break in continuity. Ridiculous.

He is a very fine actor but GH hasn’t used him properly. They have cast him as a priest who is mild mannered and showing little emotion. I didn enjoy that kissing scene with Claudette. First time he showed any fire. That is the writers fault to misuse a real talent. He is from primetime and probably finds GH slow as molasses. They use him once every couple of weeks. I am happy he is finding work outside of soaps.

GOOD NEWS!!!! REASON TO WATCH NOW…..SURE WISH GH WOULD NOT WASTE HIS TALENT….GIVE THIS GUY A GOOD STORY LINE…AND DO NOT MAKE HIM THE KILLER!

I watch both Criminal Minds, Beyond Borders and General Hospital, so I am happy. Weird as it was announced at the end of season 1 that CMBB would not be renewed
I really like him on GH. Griffin has me wondering and guessing– is Claudette going to show up with his child and who will he end up with, hopefully Maxie.
Thank you Matt for not leaving GH and I ‘like be watching you on CMBB

Hayley Erin Returns To GH Reprising Her Daytime Emmy-Winning Role Of Kiki Jerome

This week General Hospital viewers should be on the lookout for a heavenly visit, or vision of Kiki Jerome (Hayley Erin), as her mother, Ava (Maura West) looks to finally make contact with the daughter she so desperately wants to make peace with from the great beyond!

And with that, Daytime Emmy-winner Hayley Erin will reprise her role and share scenes with her former on-screen mom, Maura West.

Erin exited GH in early 2019, when she joined the cast of Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists on Freeform in which she currently plays the role of Taylor Hotchkiss.

EW.com broke the news with first look photos of Erin’s return here.

Hayley tweeted a photo of herself in front of the General Hospital sign at their set with the words, “Surprise, Surprise”

Are you glad to know that there will be some heavy emotional payoff and scenes between GH’s Ava and her late daughter Kiki? Comment below.

Michael E. Knight Joins General Hospital

Suffice to say, this is one piece of casting news that made us very happy to hear! General Hospital has cast multi-Daytime Emmy winner, and beloved All My Children favorite, Michael E. Knight in a mystery role on the ABC soap.

Knight, who played Pine Valley’s Tad Martin on and off from 1982 to 2011 on ABC’s All My Children, will begin taping scenes soon when GH returns from its mid-summer production break.

As to who will Michael play? That is being kept under-wraps.  But Knight’s new GH castmate and his former AMC castmate, James Patrick Stuart (Valentin) enthused on the announcement: “I am thrilled, are you kidding me? I love that guy. He’s excited, too; it’s been a while for him. It’s going to be really fun to have him on my turf. I would love to share scenes with him.”

Soap viewers last saw Knight in his role as Dr Simon Neville on The Young and the Restless back in 2015.

So who do you think Michael will play on the GH canvas?  Could he reprise Tad but in Port Charles, since ABC has the rights now to the characters from AMC and OLTL? Stay tuned.

Excited by the news of Michael to GH? Comment below.

Cassandra James Set To Appear in Second Season Of GH Alum Vinessa Antoine’s ‘Diggstown’

In another exciting bit of casting on the Canadian drama series, Diggstown, General Hospital’s Cassandra James (Dr, Terry Randolph) will soon be seen alongside former GH star, Vinessa Antoine in the second season of the CBC series.

Cassandra first announced the news on her Twitter, expressing “Surprise! “Shooting DIGGSTOWN with my GH sister Vinessa Antoine.”

Antoine responded in kind sharing a photo fo the two together on the set of the show relating: “Just a couple of gals making history.  First black person to lead a dramatic show in Canada and first trans woman on a soap together. Wow! Welcome, sister. So proud to have you here.”

On GH, Vinessa exited her role of Jordan Ashford back in September of 2018, and was later replaced by Briana Nicole Henry, after making Canadian TV history when she landed the lead role of Marcie Diggs on Diggstown.  James first came onto the Port Charles canvas as Liz’s childhood friend, back in June of 2018.

Now shooting Diggstown’s second season, no details yet on what role Cassandra will play, or when her episode will air, but MFTV will keep you posted when that Intel becomes available for Canadian fans, and how U.S. fans may be able to view it.

So, what do you think of Cassandra and Vinessa appearing together on Diggstown? Would you like to see more of Cassandra on GH? Missing Vinessa Antoine? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
