Gregory Harrison Is The New Gregory Chase On General Hospital

Photo: Hallmark Channel

General Hospital just got hotter as it beef’s up its storyline featuring Kim Delaney as Jackie Templeton.  Now comes word that TV veteran, Gregory Harrison has come to the ABC daytime drama series as the recast Gregory Chase.

The character of Gregory Chase was previously played by DAYS James Read, who plays the treacherous Clyde Weston now and then on the NBC soap.

With Harrison taking on the role of Finn (Michael Easton) and Chase’s (Josh Swickard) father, that makes things a little juicier in the romantic department.

According to EW.com who broke the casting news, Harrison begins taping today Wednesday at the ABC studios for General Hospital and fans can look forward to his debut on-screen in a few weeks.

As to the storyline: “Fireworks could be on the horizon for Harrison’s character.”

TV fans remember Gregory from the hit series Trapper John M.D., then later on Falcon Crest, Judging Amy, One Tree Hill and more.  He also has frequently appeared in Lifetime and Hallmark Channel movies most recently.

So, what do you think about the Gregory Chase recast with Gregory Harrison? Intrigued? Comment below.

I think he will be a great addition to the show. I always liked his acting and look forward to seeing him in his new role.

Love, love, love this man! Have seen him over the years in so many shows and movies. Including all the ones mentioned above. I may be old folks, but Iam not dead yet, and can still admire someone like him. He also acts as good as he looks. Ok, I’ll stop gushing and just welcome him to GH. What a major coup!

hi Violet-
My g’ma calls older white hair men ”Silver Fox”
And-
it’s good to see an older man with natural hair color..
Seeing men 60 on up with black hair is stupid ridiculous.
and- I’ve recently seen Sonny/Maurice with his natural grey hair
and he looked awesome why its colored jet black, I dunno.

i totally agree about Maurice Benard… those silver locks on Maurice LOOK GOOD ! yeah, it’s me. saw a pic of him on twitter… during all this… TIME. it would help Sonny relax and age naturally. MB age is catching up. till then… i’ll say it again… YOU LOOK GOOD

Violet Lemm

SuOOO
Yes, Silver Fox is right. They can’t let an older man grow gracefully any more but feel they have to make them more appealing by dying their hair that awful black. Even the younger men on the soaps feel they have to add something, be it streaks or high lights, etc. as you said about Sonny, and Chance on Y&R is a good example of a younger man changing his hair color. I do not believe that is his natural color.

now it makes more sense why Jackie dumped Finn, cause we all know they hooked up, and that’s cause daddy/papi is hot. Even Anna might give papa chase a second look.

Why not a Cyrus recast?

Satan

Let’s hope Cyrus isn’t around long enough to need a recast. My three headed dog, Cerberus really wants a new chew toy for Xmas, and hopefully Cyrus will be here by then. He’s wearing out his welcome up there even more than Nelle or Shiloh did.

Shiloh, of course, is Cerberus’s current chew toy, but he’s damn near all chewed up by now. Nelle’s not down here yet, but y’all probably knew that already.

Didn’t realize, Satan, that Xmas was celebrated in hell. Are you not the anti-Christ? LOL. —just sayin’—-
Anyway—Gregory is ageless; just as Sean Connery is.
Now, that’s a beautiful man!!

Satan, sorry, my bad. Of course we’re talking re-cast. I kind of like hating this Cyrus. I’d like to see someone grab him and cut off that pony tail. Maybe like Samson, it gives him strength.

Because Jeff Kober is kicking butt. As usual, Mark Teschner is brining it in the casting department.

Yes, the cast is ridiculously large, but Gregory is likely not to be a long term addition.

Kim Delaney can stay as long as she likes, as the reintroduction of Jackie onto the canvas is a success. Her mention of the original Floating Rib was a nod to show history.

Gregory sure doesn’t look old enough to be Finn’s father.

Satan
Guest
Satan

Well, Finn doesn’t look old enough to be Chase’s father either, though things certainly seem to be leaning in that direction. Now that we know that Finn banged Jackie the night before she married his daddy, all we need to know is when Chase was born. If it was approximately 9 months after his “parents” got married, we all know the deal….. In either case, it seems like Valentini is determined to build a family around his OLTL pet no matter how many times he quits the show and comes back as another character. Last time around, they made KikiTwit… Read more »

I as thinking the same thing. But I think that ship has sailed. Since Liz was introduced 23 years ago, there just seems to be NO interest in bringing Jeff or her mother on. Most legacy characters have parents and siblings around, but for the most part they have kept Liz as an island. It would be awesome for Jeff and Monica to reconnect, and give Monica something to do besides babysit. I know Leslie C. Is recurring, but it would involve her in more story. Sonny has four kids on the show!! Dante, Kristina, Donna, and Avery. I dont… Read more »

If they were going to bring Jeff Webber back, why not go for the real thing? I don’t think Richard Dean Anderson has been doing all that much since Stargate went off the air. Old rumor in Hell was that he was going to show up on the new MacGyver series to play the father of the current MacGyver, but then they hired somebody else for that role, and killed off the character at the end of the last season. It’s kind of ridiculous that Elizabeth has been living in Port Charles since the mid 1990s and her dad’s never… Read more »

I’ve given up on Jeff ever returning to PC. RDA has said he couldn’t handle the rapid shooting schedule that GH has adopted.

Jeff never showed up after his father died, his daughter was raped, grandson presumed dead or another daughter was revealed.

He is the founding member of the Port Charles deadbeat dad club. Other current members include Frisco Jones and Lucky Spencer.

” I am going to miss , any and all opportunity, for James Read’ Chance father. Gregory Harrison as the newbie father… may have ALL that smoldering with Kim Delaney… locked in. oy… AND w/Robert. this is top shelf

Okay since evidently we’re wallowing in the shallow water in this thread and discussing an actor’s looks… OMG! He’s 70! How is that possible?!?!

I had no problem with James Read BUT to start a triangle with Jackie and Robert or make Gregory a more prominent player, yes, Gregory Harrison is perfect! He will be like when GH cast Greg Evigan a couple years ago as Jim Harvey, a hit! Cannot wait to see Gregory!

I love Gregory Harrison and I definitely want Cyrus to stay because I don’t like one -sided stories of any kind. That’s what is happening on General Hospital with Sonny , his mob side kick , Jason and Carly. Let’s get real with the mob family ; if all of the mobsters were as weak as Julian , Sonny would have Port Charles and surrounding areas under his control. Cyrus makes it a reality that shows not one mobster controls the underworld. Now the writers need to give Cyrus a henchman who is as determined as Jason Morgan.

Briana Nicole Henry on Her Decision to Exit GH: “I Decided It Was Time to Move On”

On Monday’s episode, GH viewers learned that Jordan will need to start dialysis and treatment at a specialty clinic in Albany from kidney damage and suffering renal failure.  But on Tuesday, fans of the ABC daytime drama series learned that Briana Nicole Henry has left the show, all her decision, according to her post on Instagram.

A Daytime Emmy nominee this year in the Outstanding Supporting Actress category, Briana shared the news on her departure expressing: “I suppose it is that time isn’t it. As I celebrated my third year of being on General Hospital yesterday, I also watched my last episode as Jordan Ashford air. People kept asking me how it felt to have ended my time on the show, and it wasn’t until yesterday that it really sank in, as I watched Jordan’s goodbye to her family and knew the tears you saw were real tears between not just colleagues but friends. I decided it was time for me to move on from @generalhospitalabc and I got nothing but love and support from everyone involved. Not to mention was given the most beautiful send of that left me quite literally shaken.  I’d like to take a second to thank every single person in my @generalhospitalabc family that helped me make GH my home over the last three years, especially @fvalentinigh . From the crew, to my cast mates to our security guard Emma, there were multiple people on any given day that brought such a smile and warmth to my heart.”

Briana finished her post with, “When I started GH it was my first opportunity as a series regular, and to get the opportunity to throw myself into Jordan for the last three years and work with some truly incredible actors has been an honor. Thanks for holding space for me to grow. I am a better actor because of the time I spent within those walls and will forever be grateful for the way the show nurtured and challenged my ability.  To the fans, it took me a while to win you over, but once you saw my heart you made me feel so much love. I hope I brought something unique and honest to your beloved character of Jordan Ashford, she’s one helluva woman. Until next time loves 👋🏾.”

This will be the second Jordan to exit General Hospital.  The role was originated by Vinessa Antoine, and Henry took it over for the last three years.

So, sad to see Briana leave GH? Should the show recast? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Jason asks Carly to Marry Him and She Responds “With All My Heart”

The stage is set now for General Hospital’s Jason/Carly/Sonny/Nina story to explode as things heated up between longtime friends and former lovers, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) just as Jax (Ingo Rademacher) is in Nixon Falls pleading with Nina (Cynthia Watros) to come clean and tell “Mike”(Maurice Benard) that he is indeed, Sonny Corinthos.  Here’s what went down on Friday’s episode …

Back in Port Charles, at the demolished former “Jake’s”, Carly and Jason’s old stomping grounds, Carly and Jason share a kiss. Carly says she can’t believe this is happening after letting him know that all of her old romantic feelings for him are starting to come back. Apparently that is true for Jason too, as the ABC daytime drama series finally reaches back into the history of these two characters who were in love, before Carly slept with Sonny.  Back in the present day, Jason asks Carly to marry him, and she responds, “With all my heart.” But now, Carly is starting to feel more excited about what started off as a business arrangement between the two of them to retain the Corinthos family hold over the five families and the territory in Sonny’s absence.  Carly says she wants their wedding day to be about them, and later they can come to Jake’s just by themselves.

In Nixon Falls, Jax (Ingo Rademacher) is trying to get through to Nina, who has admitted her duplicity to him and how she has fallen in love with “Mike”.  When Jax informs her that Carly and Jason are getting married, she thinks that’s great then she and “Mike” can have a future together.  Nina wants Jax to just forget this conversation, and seeing Sonny, and do this for her; after all she went through in losing her child, Nelle, and her relationship with him. Then Jax asks her to think about Donna and Avery and Wiley, his children and grandchild, who don’t know he is alive and will never get to know him. Nina cries that Jax has won, and that she will tell “Mike” the truth in private (but something tells us, she is going to make “Mike” walk-in on Jason and Carly’s nuptials, so that she has a shot of keeping him all to herself by the betrayal he will witness).  Jax says he is not leaving Nixon Falls till she tells Sonny the truth, but she somehow she still got him to leave through her pleading to let her do this alone.  As Nina thinks “Mike” is walking in the front door of the Tan-O, in walks Peter (Wes Ramsey)!

Meanwhile, Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) is rushed to General Hospital unconscious with Portia (Brook Kerr) not far behind, after being trapped together.  More bad news is revealed when Austin (Roger Howarth) gets the blood results back for Jordan and tells Curtis (Donnell Turner) that Jordan’s levels of carbon monoxide are 58% which is not good for someone with one kidney.  Austin relates that if Jordan’s kidney function doesn’t improve, they’ll have put her on dialysis.  TJ (Tajh Bellow) comes to see his mom, and sits by her bedside in tears.  Later, Curtis breaks down in tears holding Jordan’s hand to come back to him, and she opens her eyes, as Portia walks in on the scene.

Courtesy/ABC

Three of the five families plan to take over Port Charles and split the territory after their secret meeting, where they plan to blow up a warehouse while Carly and Jason are distracted and at their wedding; the families also received a message from Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober) while in prison.  Who will stop the “hit”?

So, what do you think of Carly and Sonny getting close? What did you think of the performances of Laura Wright, Steve Burton, Cynthia Watros, and Donnell Turner within this episode? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Charles Shaughnessy Takes Over the Role of GH’s Victor Cassadine

GH fans were in for a major surprise when on Thursday’s episode a kidnapped Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) got the shock of her life when her former lover, Victor Cassadine turned out to be alive and well and holding her hostage.

But there was another twist! DAYS favorite, Charles Shaughnessy (Shane), who previously was announced as coming to GH but in a mystery role, revealed himself to be … the new Victor Cassadine!  The former Mr. Sheffield of The Nanny has stepped into the role previously played by DAYS Thaao Penghlis (Tony).

Once the cat was out of the bag, in a tweet, Shaughnessy shared: “So excited to FINALLY be able to reveal details of my latest “gig”. 37 years on, I am back in the halls of @GeneralHospital, playing with the incredible @gatitweets. Having once been a vampire on @DisneyChannel, it’s not surprising I bring #VictorCassadine back from the dead!”

Shaughnessy is referring to the time he previously played Holly Sutton’s cousin, Alistair on the ABC daytime drama series back in 1984.

General Hospital viewers recall that Liesl shot and “killed” Victor back in 2014 then played by Penghlis.  In story, Victor believed he was the bio-dad of her son, Nathan West (Ryan Paevey). But a DNA test said that was not true, yet she shot him.  Leaving viewers wondering who is the dad? Hmmm.

So what did you think of the shocker? Shaughnessy as NuVictor Cassadine? Comment below.
