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

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!!

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.

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

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: Peter’s On Ice, But Is He “Dead” Dead?

Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital provided more to the back-story of what Finn (Michael Easton) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) did with Peter’s (Wes Ramsey) body after Finn tussled with the guy and Peter fell down the stairwell and hitting his head on the wall, to his supposed death.

In story, Liz became worried when thinking back to how she suggested to Finn – and that they carried out –  putting Peter’s body in a freezer in the sub-basement of the hospital.

As she recalls their plot (to keep Peter’s body from being discovered until they have time to move him permanently), Anna  (Finola Hughes) is on the move of the hospital and uncovers a hidden service elevator that might just take her to the sub-basement, where she could discover Peter’s lifeless body.

But hold the phone! While we know it was revealed that Wes Ramsey departed GH, could it be that Anna could discover the freezer with no sign of Peter in it? Do you really think his reign of terror is over given that he is Cesar Faison’s bio-son?

Share your thoughts: Do you think Peter is really dead, or will the character come back to haunt everyone and try to get revenge on all who tried to stand in his way of Maxie and his child? Comment below.
