General Hospital’s Michael Blake Kruse (Rory Cabrera) had some casting news of his own to share on his Instagram account this week.

Kruse’s Rory, who is currently vying for the heart of Trina Robinson (Tabyana Ali) on the ABC daytime drama series, has also been filming a primetime TV role for the upcoming 10th season of NBC’s Chicago P.D.

In his IG post, Michael shared:  “It’s great to be working in the Midwest again with the incredible cast and crew of Chicago PD. So much to love about this city and show. Season 10 premieres on Sept 21st.”

No word yet on what role Kruse will play, but he shared a few pics from the set. (see below)

Michael has previously appeared on series such as Grey’s Anatomy and Criminal Minds to name but a few.

So, looking forward to seeing more of Michael on GH and soon on Chicago P.D.? Comment below.

Michael has a lovely family. Hope he has reason to stay at GH.
Seems there is a trend now for soap actors to to take other side jobs. I’m sure it helps their resume. Plus a few more $’s.

Maybe it’s not a side job? There just happens to be an opening at Chicago PD. It’s always possible he could be Halstead’s permanent replacement.

Couldn’t blame him for taking the gig if that were the case. Rory – as he’s written right now – is kind of a boring character… which is why this Devil has been speculating that he’s working another agenda somehow… and probably was planted in the PCPD by one of Sonny’s rival mob families.

If he ends up moving permanently to Chicago, then GH will either have to drop that plot entirely, or change him to his “mob” persona very soon, which will probably mean he would get killed off in the process (as opposed to “being saved by the love of Trina”, which would probably be the outcome if he were sticking around Port Charles for the long term)

Satan…Or Heaven forbid they will put her with Spencer if Rory leaves. Some women tend to have a thing for wanting to save their bad boy boyfriends. So no to Spencer. Still leaves speculation on this story in limbo.

Satan
I know you don’t like hearing this but” from your lips to etc,etc. I would love watching him so much more on Chicago P.D and of course now that Jay is leaving, who better to take his place?

I say cheers to that!

I am thinking the same as you, Satan. Rory’s double persona will be disclosed and he will either be killed or go to prison.
However, ( I detest the new expression, “Having said that”—but that’s another issue) I vehemently protest seeing Spencer and nuTrina as a couple. She is the most lackluster character within this group. She is too much of a straight-laced, prissy , “ I-am-so-perfect” ever!! It’s great to be a good girl ( I am-LOL) , but her “aura” carries this angelic trait too far— makes me want to scream, “ Yeah, right!”

I suspect Trina’s going to go through some sort of minor identity crisis in the near future, most likely when she finds out who her real father is, and has to deal with not only that, but her mother’s concerns that she might inherit some mental health problems from “Grandpa Marshall”. And of course that’s all in addition to what may or may not happen with Rory, if indeed he’s not sticking around much longer. So Trina could be an entirely different person by the time Spencer gets out of the joint…. and he’s going to have to go through a bit of self-assessment himself, given all that’s happened between him & his dad…. and with Ave & Esme.

Who knows…. the two of them might be much more credible together after they’re done clawing back up through their individual mountains of dragonshit.

So sagaciously and well-explained comment, Satan. You do have a way with words—remind me of Shay ( miss her much).
I love Spencer, and despite his and Trina’s similar life-aches, I just cannot see them together. Between Trina, her mother, Michael and Carly, I don’t know whom to mentally vaporize first.
These people are way too righteous for me to digest.
Carly is the perfect example of “do as I say but not as I do”—hypocrisy at its best.
Methinks Willow will need a transfusion–rare blood-type. “Who you gonna call”? Will Carly be big enough ( pardon the pun) to fess up?
Stay well.

Bryan Craig Wishes General Hospital’s Maurice Benard ‘Happy Father’s Day’; Is He Trolling Us … or is This the Ultimate Return Tease?

Sunday is Father’s Day, and it’s the time when many soap stars and celebrities take to social media to give love and shout outs to their dads.

In an another post that got General Hospital fans to take notice, two-time Daytime Emmy-winner Bryan Craig (ex-Morgan Corinthos) dropped a blast from the past photo of himself alongside Maurice Benard (Sonny). Accompanying the photo, Bryan wrote: ‘Happy Father’s Day” Maurice Benard.

The post on X comes on the heels of a previous response by Craig to a post on Frank Valentini’s (executive producer, General Hospital) comment to On the Red Carpet, where he revealed that this summer, “A former cast member is coming back. And I think that the audience will go crazy for HIM.” In response, Craig teased, “Who could it be…”

Now on Sunday responses to Craig’s post were met with varied responses from GH fans from “Stop playing with us” to “Now you’re just trolling us, lol. We really need you back right now.”  Still others took it as a potential confirmation that Craig is the mystery man on his way back to General Hospital stating, “I hope you’re going to back to GH!” to “Can’t wait!”

Craig last appeared on GH from 2013-2016 and made a brief return in 2018. Since departing GH, Bryan has appeared in numerous TV and film projects including: Freeform’s Good Trouble and ABC’s Grand Hotel.

So, is Bryan Craig yanking GH viewers chain, or is he slyly teasing us, because he knows he is the one returning to the ABC soap opera? Weigh-in on your theories below.

GH’s Evan Hofer Talks Life for Dex After Sonny’s Beatdown, Giovanni Mazza, and If Josslyn is Love Endgame

General Hospital’s Dex Heller (Evan Hofer) has been at the epicenter of Sonny Corinthos’ (Maurice Benard) paranoia, which led to the beatdown of Sonny’s former right hand man.

Now, Dex is licking his wounds, and trying to move on with his life after joining the PCPD; following attempting to move away from working for the mob and under Sonny’s thumb. Problem is, Dex has a soft spot for Sonny. Meanwhile, looks like there still may be a future for Dex and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) as the two are trying to mend their once-fractured relationship.

Michael Fairman TV caught up with Evan Hofer at the 51st annual Daytime Creative Arts and Lifestyle Emmys (in which Hofer was a presenter during the ceremonies), to discuss the current life and times of his Port Charles alter-ego.

Evan has now gotten to see and feel first-hand what is like working in soaps and television, when you have to wear prosthetics on your face after Sonny accosted Dex at Brook Lynn and Chase’s wedding reception.

Hofer recalled the experience. “Our makeup team is incredible. Priscilla, my makeup artist is just so talented. She layered silicone every day so she could control the swelling, so that way, she would have control over how it looked as it progressed and, you know, decreased, increased,” Hofer revealed. “She was incredible and very, very detailed.”

Paying a nod to actors who have to take on TV or movie roles where they have to wear complete facial prosthetics, Evan shared, “I do not envy people who wear full face prosthetics. I think my longest tape day was probably seven hours in it. I got a little claustrophobic. It does cause you to have a lack of of depth perception, which is a rough one.”

Hofer weighed-in on if he thinks Dex will ever turn in Sonny and press charges against him for his character’s recent beatdown. “I hope he doesn’t. It’s hard though, because he loves him (Sonny) and that’s the problem,” stated Evan. “That’s what we do with people we love. It’s almost an abusive parent relationship, isn’t it? I have this theory that Dex almost feels like he deserves these things.”

Now might be the time for the GH writers to explore more of Dex’s backstory which could include a backstory of abuse. “I really would love them to. I think it’d be incredible,” hoped Evan. However, he added, “I’m just grateful for whatever I get to do every day and excited for whatever story we get to tell.  Something like The Departed – undercover with the mob- would be cool (for a storyline), and then everybody’s wondering which side I’m on the whole time.”

Is there hope for Dex and Josslyn fans that they will still may be each other’s love endgame? Hofer teased, “I think they start spending a little more time together, but who knows what’ll happen. You never know on a soap opera. Maybe Dex’s evil twin will show up and steal Josslyn away.”

A few months back, Evan shared some major scenes with the one and only Finola Hughes (Anna). In story, Dex admits he was going to kill Cyrus on Sonny’s orders. Hofer shared it was a big moment for him since his time being on GH. “What an honor to get to do those scenes with Finola. I had only worked with her once before and that was when Dex broke her out of prison and he got shot the first time,” recalls Hofer. “She’s all about working the scenes ahead of time, which I am, too. We got to get a lot of reps in and when we get up there on stage, she’s incredibly affecting. I’ll kind of have an idea of maybe of how the scene will go, and then I’ll just look in her eyes and suddenly I am just so in a different space that she’s pulled me into. In those scenes, having Dex feel like someone cares about him was really beautiful.”

Recently, Giovanni Mazza premiered as Gio. In Hofer’s first on-screen scenes with Mazza, the two talk about Gio’s dad having been in the military and Dex’s experience in the Army and serving in Afghanistan.

This raised some GH viewers eyebrows to what if the two characters could somehow be related? Perhaps, brothers? Evan responded to those inquiring minds, “Oh, I don’t know. We look pretty alike. There is the military connection. I think it’ll be interesting. Those first scenes we had together were incredible. I was so excited to work with Geo. He couldn’t be any nicer really. He’s an incredible person. He’s so easy to be around. We hang out outside of work all the time, already.”

Does Evan think there will come a day where Jason (Steve Burton), Dex and Sonny will all be working together on the same side, and thus, Sonny will have both his former henchman at his disposal?  While Hofer doesn’t know what’s coming down the pike, he expressed, “It’s been incredible to have Steve around. He’s a really wonderful man. I’d only met him on Zoom previously to him coming back.  I hope we get to work together more. We got one batch of scenes together and I hope we get to do more soon.”

As to what GH viewers should be on the lookout for in the weeks ahead, Evan teased, “We’ll see what Joss and Dex get into, and we’ll see what happens within the police department.”

So, are you rooting for Dex and Joss? Do you want Dex back working for Sonny, or hope he stays with the PCPD? Would you want to see more of Dex’s backstory explored? Comment below.
