GH's Returning Ingo Rademacher Reveals: "Stoked To Be Back On Set Working With Laura Wright & Maurice Benard!"

Fan favorite Ingo Rademacher (Jax), who is back on set working this summer at General Hospital, and returns on-air in late July, posted an image on his Instagram account revealing his excitement being back in Port Charles reviving his role.

The actor teased with a photo outside the GH soundstage entrance: “Stoked to be back on set working with @thereallauraw @mauricebenard @generalhospitalabc special thanks to @acura for the stunningly luxurious #2016acuramdx #mdx #mahiku @mahikuactivewear #GH #generalhospital #abc #Abc #abcgeneralhospital”

Jax is returning to be a part of the discovery of just who is the donor of his daughter Josslyn’s kidney, but as we have also gleaned from GH head writers, Shelly Altman and Jean Passanante, there is more to this story and it may take off in a different direction.

So, getting ready for “Jax is back” time on GH? Let us know in the comment section below!

I never saw any of the Jax years on GH. Does this mean more Sonny and company? (gross)

I am in the same boat as you, Charday. I know nothing about this character; mainly because I am not interested. So, gross is right. Sonny, Carly and Morgan steal the show….not in a good way.
Not looking forward to adding more to the daily dose of Sonny and gang.

Cee, you will hate Sonny even MORE because he constantly pulls Jax’s strings and calls him “Candy Boy!” Its tough to watch. Jax rarely has the upper hand with the Grease Man!

Jax is a great character with a lot of history. He is BFF’s with Alexis and Ned. He’s Josselyns dad, so hes back for the kidney storyline. It makes sense. And, Sonny and Jax hate each other and its not because of Carly. It stems back to when Brenda and Jax were together in the 90’s. Plus, it could always be his brother Jerry murdering the patients at the hospital. Or, he is the one that got the kidney. Plus he has history with Nikolas, which isn’t so great but could be another good storyline if TC is involved.

@Elizabeth.
Thank you, Elizabeth. I never took the time to check Jax out mainly because the character appeared once since I’ve been watching. I knew he was Joss’s dad, but that’s it.
I don’t know much about Brenda either; only that she’s tied to Sonny….which is not surprising. What is surprising is that Sonny’s potent prowess did not produce any children.
So, as you indicate, there must be s very pertinent reason for Jax return. I have seen him in a couple of shows (Hawaii 5-0) sans the Australian accent. Lol.

LOL, Timmmy. Any enemy of Sonny’s is a friend of mine.

@CeeCee…..Back in the day, Jax was seriously hot…..very much the kind of suit-clad, quintessential fair-haired type with international flair that I so enjoy…..but somewhere along the way, he lost his appeal for me….now his appearances are more storyline than personality bound, at least from my perspective. But he did make Carly bearable during their relationship, so I must give credit where credit is due….LOL.

@Shay. I looked Ingo up just to see what he looked like in his youth. Some people do not change much physically, but this guy is almost unrecognizable. Yet, He does not wow me either in youth or now. Again, it’s a matter of taste. Not only am I not attracted to fair haired/complected guys, his features don’t make my heart go pitter-patter. Lol. I know, I know, Shaybelle; you love the Nordic types, such as my brothers….tall and blonde; right? I sound shallow, I know. Looks should not matter; but, the first thing we see is physical appearance. It’s… Read more »

@CeeCee…..Unrecognizable is a very kind way of putting it! Honestly, I never rated Jax on the top of my favorite daytime hunks list…there were quite a few beautiful blond boys of soaps past that grabbed my fancy to a far greater degree, but at the time of Mr. Jacks’ heyday, there was an ever-increasing dearth of the WASPY European types of leading men on display—and today is quite markedly worse—so one had to be grateful for what little was offered…..LOL. Still, Ingo did have a certain charisma at the time, and his Jax brought an Aussie-style charm to a number… Read more »

This could be a big plus for the show if it is written well. The current writers need to understand that it is not a character’s behavior that is interesting but the motivation behind the behavior. Motivation rooted in past history can be fascinating. Long live GH!

Not a big fan of Jax, but am mildly curious about the origin of Josslyn’s transplant. It will probably source back to Helena, which is a good excuse to resurrect the fabulous Constance Towers’ diva I love to hate. At least we’ll see some great fashions!

Celia
Guest
Celia

Yes, Soaphound. I certainly agree.
If this storyline is cultivated in a realistic and orderly fashion, and not ‘manufactured’ ploys to best suit the writers, it could be very compelling.
I hope ‘they’ do their research and give us an acceptable, reasonable and sensible story.
Oh, and yes; I, also, hope the development of the story is dealt with sensitivity.

@Rose….Whether Alexis really is (God forbid!) pregnant, or (please, please, please….) not, she needs to give those lady parts of hers a rest! This woman has been rode hard by Julian, both figuratively and literally speaking, and it’s about time she learns to enjoy her own company…..or that of a cat, or two, three, or better yet, a houseful!!!!

Shay…Agree nothing hot and heavy. But Jax isn’t that kind of guy, plus they were good friends and even married for convenience I think way back when. Let’s just start with dinners, and catch up. A little like Laura and Kevin when the writers let them come out to play.

Shay
Guest
Shay

@Rose….Yes, there was that brief “marriage” in name only……and generally speaking, Jax is a stand-up dude….just like Ned, and even Mac! Yet none really did it for Alexis when it came down to the nitty-gritty, right????….I’m just so tired of her sick attraction to evil men….whether in real life or fiction, women like her who make repeatedly poor choices in their selection of such flawed male specimens neither evoke my sympathy nor pity, just utter scorn. As far as I’m concerned, Ms. Davis has had ample opportunity to fall for a nice guy, and that never works…..so I’m not nearly… Read more »

I’ve always liked Jax and I was so excited to hear he was coming back to GH. But there is always that reality that he will most likely be thrown under the bus for Sonny and Carly and used as a plot point to make them look better. How about just letting him fall for someone else this time? Then Sonny and Carly fans can be happy and Jax fans can see him find some happiness with someone who really cares about him and him alone. That would be truly great.

it would not in the least surprise me … if they go this route would GH – dare – to go this route and waste Ingo Rademacher and the audience time… just for – plot – point and to prop Carly and Sonny THIS would the end all or be all…. 1. Sonny and Carly do not look or act like they are in love… Maurice relys “heavily” on Laura Wright to carry this beleaguered and TIRED “couple” I will be PISSED if GH – USES – the much loved and missed Jax Jacks he’s too fine a character… dang… Read more »

Love Ingo/Jax but he’s not staying long term so I don’t think the focus will be on him having a relationship.

KMB
Guest
KMB

Unfortunately you are right Rebecca. There won’t be any time for him to have a decent relationship, but plenty of time for the writers to throw him under the bus for S&C no doubt. Don’t mean to be such a downer, but just going by the show’s history with Jax, it’s hard not to come to any other conclusion.

Hi KMB, thanks for your reply. But I’m not really sure what u mean when u say he’ll be thrown under the bus for C&S. While it’s true Carly left him for Sonny, as she left Franco, etc, Jax has always been his own man, albeit always losing the girl to Sonny. Lol, how anyone xan leave a drop dead, extremely rich, actual great guy with an Aussie accent to boot is beyond me…but I digress. I think his stay will involve Jocelyn and the mysyterious kidney which may tie back to Helena and Jake on Cadsadine Island and hopefully… Read more »

Ingo has many project he is involved in, and really likes.
He doesn’t want a contract/back with GH, but he likes the short stories appearances .
And there is no mob to ”glorification” lol..
I would be very excited if there were a mob..
Sonny and Julian stuff is personal and not mob related.

Celia
Guest

Oh, su, my friend…..It is absolutely mob related. Every inch of Sonny’s and Julian’s lives is mob related. Alexis would not, herself, be in this predicament it it were not. Yes, Sonny has a vested interest because of Kristina (sp), but, he cannot pretend he does not have a vendetta against Julian directly related to mob-business. His ‘revenge’ (Duke) is peripheral, in my opinion. Sonny has had it in for Julian since forever….and, vice versa. Furthermore, even if we consider it personal, it still points to his and Duke’s involvement with the mob. It’s all about retaliation….the top guy needs… Read more »

LOL Celia 🙂 there is no mob(s).. A mob is more than one man.. Both Julian and Sonny are head of mobs that don’t exist..ahaa! Julian killing Carlos had nothing to with mob business, it was personal to save his own arse. What Julian is doing to Alexis has no mob involvement, again it is personal to save his arse. IF Sonny had an active mob/mobsters that he could boss around he surely would call a hit on Julian and have it over with.. Neither Sonny or Julian have a side, as once was..they both stand alone.

I’ve been watching GH since I was 8, that’s 39 yeas and no other character has EVER stolen my heart like Jax. I just adore the character and Ingo. Glad the kidney story is going to be addressed.

Su, everyone who watches GH knows both Sonny and Julian are mob connected. Since this isn’t The Sopranos or Goodfellas and the soap deals with numerous other storylines, they’re not going to invest in character actors to fill out the mob. We KNOW Sonny is connected, we KNOW he handles mob business and his coffee warehouse exists to make him appear legit, ae KNOW when there’s a meeting he goes or s ends (sent) Jason, Duke, whomever, we KNOW his name is known and he is feared and respected by others offscreen, we know one oh his wives, Lilly, was… Read more »

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?

Courtney Hope Gets Marriage Advice From Her Y&R Co-Stars Ahead of Her Wedding to GH’s Chad Duell

This weekend, The Young and the Restless Courtney Hope (Sally), is set to walk down the aisle and marry the love of her life, General Hospital’s Chad Duell (Michael).  The nuptials are to take place this Saturday, October 23rd according to the wedding planner Zola.

Ahead of the popular soap duo’s vows, Courtney asked some of her Y&R co-stars advice, but as their characters in a very cute Instagram video on The Young and the Restless IG account with the accompanying text: “Marriage advice you don’t normally hear… as told by the #YR stars 😉 A special thank you to our real-life bride-to-be @TheCourtneyHope for asking! 😂”

Participating are: Peter Bergman (Jack), Amelia Heinle (Victoria), Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mishael Morgan (Amanda), Christian LeBlanc (Michael, Eileen Davidson (Ashley), Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe), and Christel Khalil (Lily).

In terms of advice, Amelie Heinle told Hope, “As Victoria Newman, I would say that you need to marry a man that is not going to be around for very long, and especially if he has a lot of money.”

Christel Khalil offered up some Lily marital suggestions: “Don’t let your husband let you think that he’s dead and that you’ve slept with a ghost!”

As for Courtney and Chad, the couple had been dating for five years, and this past Valentine’s Day, they became engaged.

Please share your well-wishes to Courtney and Chad as they embark on their life together via the comment section below, and let us know what you think of the marital advice given to Hope from the citizens of Genoa City.  

You can check out the video below, and then take a look back at our interview with the duo on the red carpet back at the 46th annual Daytime Emmys Awards.
