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.

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

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?

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!!

Didn’t know we were talking about re-casts, but dying this one’s hair orange might help.

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.

I have always loved his acting, dating back to Gonzo Gates on Trapper John, MD. Also have been watching him on the Hallmark channel. YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !

He would had been a good Jeff Webber recast

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

I like the way Robert looks at Jackie.

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.

General Hospital’s Halloween Week Promo Touts Wicked Surprises

Looks like everyone will be on edge this week as Halloween comes to Port Charles.  In the newly-released ABC promo for General Hospital, it reveals that this spooky week of episodes will be a rollercoaster ride, featuring wicked surprises, and killer costumes.

After Epiphany (Sonya Eddy) scolds Franco (Roger Howarth) for having his hand in the candy jar, Anna (Finola Hughes) or is it? … is donning a black witches hat. Jackie (Kim Delaney) is seen opening her door, juxtaposed with Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) saying “trick or treat”. But, is he actually at the door of someone else?

Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) asks Ava (Maura West), “Darling, what are you holding behind your back?” That is revealed to be a knife, but is it Ava who truly has the knife?

 

Meanwhile, Jason (Steve Burton) is looking around in the dark.  Elsewhere, Peter is jumpy.  So much so that Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) utters, “Looks like you’ve seen a ghost.”

Add all that to last Friday’s episode of GH where Carly(Laura Wright) thinks she saw Nelle’s (Chloe Lanier) hand come out of her grave and attack her! Is Nelle (Chloe Lanier) going to be proven to be alive? And if so, will she pop up on Halloween and scare the hell out of Carly?

Watch the promo below, then let us know what you think will happen this week on General Hospital via the comment section.
