That Port Charles scene stealer, Nicolas Bechtel (Spencer Cassadine) can add another role to his growing resume at quite the young age.  Now comes word that GH’s Bechtel is set to co-star in the new Disney Channel series Stuck in the Middle!

Variety reported today that the new series will star Jane the Virgin’s Jenna Ortega and the family sitcom marks a move toward Latino-targeted programming for the cable outlet.

The single-cam series is centered around the Diaz family, and is told from the perspective of the middle child, Harley, played by Ortega.  Turns out that Harley is an engineering whiz who uses her inventions to navigate life as the middle child in a large family of seven kids. Harley’s overlooked status proves to be both a blessing and a curse, as she maneuvers her way through the everyday antics that come with being part of a big family.

As for Bechtel he will play the role of Harley’s brother, Danny!  The rest of the kids in the Diaz clan are either familiar faces to the Disney Channel audience or newcomers.

Look for the comedy to make it’s debut in the spring 2016 with production slated to begin this November.

So what do you think about Nicolas’ new TV role?  Looks like the young star may be pulling double duty on GH and Stuck in the Middle.  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

The only way this precocious kid could go is up. How could he not? I always knew there was something very special and magnetic about him….and with a name such as Nicolas….well, there you go! That’s my boy’s name. LOL. There’s a honed, keen intelligence attached to that name. No joke. Bechtel, evident even as a child, has that charming, fascinating and alluring quality that demands attention. He can work that camera ‘everywhichway’….and the viewer. Captivating. I don’t know…..he just does it for me…..I love this kid!
It won’t be long before he gets a role in the big screen.

Disney takes kids and runs them into the ground and hopefully the lucky few rise from the Evil Queen’s ashes and makes a name for themselves..and not tabloid..Disney has been constantly leaning towards a Hispanic lean for many years..we get it..all actors are relevant..we don’t need your saccharine sentiments to prove that point..JMO

Saccharine sentiments? Sorry, but I do not sweeten anything. I call them as I see them. He’s a smart kid and he will go places. I am so sorry if my logic offends you. He’s a sweet kid….all kids are. WOW! Cranky much? LOL.

CeeCee I didn’t realize till I posted that it sounded like the end of my comment was directed at you when it was actually directed at Disney for not taking better care to make sure during a child’s tenure they realize they have to grow up and stop being a Disney kid and be a real adult.

And yes …sometimes just the very word Disney cranks me up to levels of annoyance that drive me to drink…IJK..but it is annoying

No worries. My bad, and I apologize. I did take it with a grain of salt, albeit it was not directed at me. I do not apply sarcasm that well…I always fail in that writing expertise. I guess I will leave that to Shay, Timmm and Harry…..well, you’re up there, as well….and Dylan…LOL.

He’s a great little actor who’s headed for great things! Disney channel will love him. I just hope we don’t lose him on GH. Best wishes to him!

He’s very talented so it’s not a surprise that Disney recognized it and cast him in a series. As long as he can still be on GH I’m fine with it and wish him the best. He’s comedy relief on GH would hate to lose him!

I really hope they don’t SORAS Spencer yet! There’s still some more storylines they can do with the kid! Also, I really hope they won’t do what they did with Michael, have Spencer shot and aged while he’s in a coma!

Shari

Well I hope he gets to still do GH since the recent news is that the new writers plan to cut down on the kid storylines. He does ET with Mario Lopez occasionally. He’s adorable and a great little actor. At first I disliked his character (because he is that good an actor) but then Soencer grew on me.

JasonIsAlive!

I loved him on GH, but i’m ready for the kiddies to be SORASed: Emma, Joss, Spencer, Cameron.

In a family of 7 kids, Bechtel will need to continue his scene stealing in order to be seen!

I’m sure it’s great for this actor’s resume, but these Disney channel kids’ shows are so nauseating and predictable with annoying, precocious, overacting children. You can’t expect many GH viewers to follow Bechtel there.

I AGREE 100% ON WHAT YOU SAID ABOUT THE DISNEY CHANNEL AND DO NOT WANT MY GRANDSON TO WATCH THESE OVERACTING ANNOYING KIDS.

BECHTEL IS A GREAT LITTLE ACTOR AND HAS MANY MOVIE ROLES IN HIS FUTURE…..KEEP HIM OFF DISNEY

Jamesj75

Thanks for the support, JUDY! I agree with you that Bechtel is a “great little actor” and would be better suited to other projects.

Not surprising, he’s a very talented young actor. I hope we still get to see a lot of him on GH, he’s such a bright light on the show.

He is definitely a good little actor. Hope he does both roles because sure would miss him as Spenser.

Congrats to him! What an absolutely adorable, charming, natural young actor. He embodies lil Spencer and seems to have an innate ability to understand his character. I adore his scenes; he’s the epitome of lovable.

Congratulations to Nicholas! Selfishly, I hope that does’t mean we’ll no longer see him on GH. I love Spencer and his interaction with his father and Emma…well, everyone. The kid is terrific!

I doubt that we’ll see very much of him on GENERAL HOSPITAL since he’ll be tied up shooting this new series. Congratulations to him.

Luuv Luuv Luuv Spencer’s character. I am so very proud of him and plus he deserves more of a challenge than what GH is limiting him to. He is small bundle of talent ready to take over the main screen with his creativity, quirkiness, unique delivery, no wonder somebody else picked him up. Good job Bechtel Lands! I’ll be watching!

Happy for the little actor. I wish him well and the show good luck. I hope GH decides to recast and age Spencer. The shtick got old months ago.

Heather

I’m happy for Nicolas but a little scared that this will lead to him leaving GH. As Spencer he is nothing short of phenomenal. He’s totally adorable and can steal a scene from any of the vets or carry a scene all by himself. I’ve also been afraid the show would decide to SORAS Spencer, which would be terribly disappointing.

Paging Dr. Griffin Munro! Matt Cohen Makes A Return Visit To GH

Looks like a medical crisis will bring Matt Cohen (Griffin Munro) back to General Hospital today on Friday’s episode and next week on upcoming episodes of the ABC daytime drama series.

In addition, we wonder if Cohen might appear in scenes with Maura West, who’s Ava Jerome is checked into Shadybrook trying to deal with her emotional state, which unbeknownst to her is being caused by Nikolas Cassadine (Marcus Coloma).

As GH fans know, Cohen first came on to the GH scene back in 2016, but departed the series earlier in 2019.

Meanwhile, Matt has landed a gig on Entertainment Tonight as one of their correspondents and anchors while continuing to do directing, and acting projects.

What will bring Griffin back to Port Charles? Happy to see Matt again on GH? Comment below.
