Ingo Rademacher Returns As GH’s Jax Beginning In May

Things will get more interesting in the lives of Josslyn (Eden McCoy), Carly (Laura Wright), Sonny (Maurice Benard) and many others on the GH canvas with the arrival back in Port Charles of Jasper Jacks.  That’s because as previously announced, Ingo Rademacher is headed back to the ABC daytime drama series to reprise his signature role.

Circle May 7th for when you will see Jax back in action.  According to “He’s back to see his daughter Josslyn and ex-wife Carly”   Jax will also share scenes with Steve Burton (Jason) and of course Maurice Benard (Sonny).

Looks like Jax may be back to help out Josslyn in her time of need as her boyfriend Oscar’s (Garren Stitt) final days seem to be drawing near, or does something else also bring his attention back to Port Charles?

It’s been a bit since Ingo played Jax on GH having last appeared on the soap in April of 2017.  Ingo eventually landed the role as the recast Thorne Forrester on CBS’s The Bold and the Beautiful, a part he played till December of 2018.

Back in March, the actor originally from down under shared on his Instagram account: “Won’t be long now.  Just had my fitting. All new look for Jax. Start shooting next week. No air date yet. Stay tuned. Can’t wait!”

So, excited for some Jax on GH? What do you think will bring him back? What do you think will keep him in town? Comment below.

I always liked Jax I thought he was a breath of fresh air but still will not bring me back still the Sonny shiw


Goody !
I luv change-up, it keeps things rolling fresh.

I’m used to high octane dilemmas and challenges so anything that will bring something new my way is appreciated.
I can only hope Jax will be bringing some dark excitement with him..


If Jax is in town, can Jerry be too far behind? Seems like they usually show up around the same time, in recent years.

Sebastian Roche was busy for a while being a vampire, poisoning Hitler, and other fun things like that, but I don’t think he’s got any prime time gigs at the moment, so hopefully both of the Jacks brothers will stick around for the summer storylines?

Ingo should be on full time contract instead of Howarth and Easton (Frank’s OLTL pets) but Jax will only be back for one month like all core GH vets. Jax is needed. Franco and Finn are worthless. Liz and Anna are being wasted on Franco and Finn. Both are being misused to create a place for these two dud characters.


^^^^^ “… Franco and Finn are worthless ”

two pieces of good for nothing

each of them have been given the yellow brick road to .. daresay I… STARdumb

I have never seen a show give opportunity to so few who would have been canned / fired / let go LONG AGO

Michael Easton :

Role from: March 13, 2012 to March 20, 2013 his claim to fame as McBain.
Role from: May 13, 2013 to August 5, 2015 Dr. Silas Clay
Role from March 21, 2016 to present Dr. Finn

THAT IS 6 FULL Years to have solidified anything !!!! zip zilch nada… he’s especially obvious with Finola Hughes. they look more like much younger brother AND sister. COME On Shelly AND Chris… how staid unimportant and boring this pairing

Roger Howarth :

May 2013 : Franco… Yawn… Frank / Shelly / Chris are idolizing Roger Howarth, to no end. he’s a stifling bore… his histrionics with facial tick AND childlike demeanor… WITH Abstract intent… OKAY Roger. to this day… he still has no connect with any one in the canvas… just like Finn. no one on the cast seeks either of them out. unless its for a miracle cure AND or a substantial donation from Franco to either the city of or general hospital. otherwise these two are ho hum bores.

just not worth mentioning every reason under the sun how much Finola Hughes and Rebecca Herbst are continually CARRYING both Michael and Roger.

very much like Sonny AND Carly… just do not deserve all the airtime . Frank Valentini is killing this show


Hi Patrick, how yah doing?
We’ll have fisticuffs round LOL
I luv Franco and Finn.. Manly Franco.

Anna is Kook.. she has been suntable for a while now..
If she were in my platoon I’d send her to the infirmary for a mental work up for discharge.

And there is no other more Bland and boring than Elizebeth total wallpaper.

if I were writing I’d bring the original Franco back/grow his tumor back, for sure.
And- I’d bring back Silas, a mystery as to/which he really is. ..

I agree with just about all of your comments. I love Franco, and I loved Silas. He was hot and spicy, whereas Finn is just nice, somewhat boring and Anna makes him even worse. I have to disagree with what you said about Liz. There is someone else that fits your description of her. Laura! She is nice but that’s all. Maybe Kevin will really fall for Ava, and Laura and Finn can get together, two peas in a boring pod, right?


hi Violet..
Imagine how exciting and intriguing it would be if all the goody-goody boring guys became gray and a delightful nasty!
I love a bad boy LOL
Franco/Roger plays a bad boy with zest and he loves playing the intriguing bad boy.. GH turned the once vibrant Franco into a powder puff.

And Finn needs to do a 180 and go back to being Silas!

GH has horrible couples, they are all stale, blahhh and dull..
not one, not one couple has an ounce of worth.

Don’t break up Carly and Sonny. They are last good couple from the last good era of GH. Jax should be brought back for good and paired romantically with Ava.


Jax’s appearance is necessary for Josslyn’s sake, Carly’s character was so much more tolerable in relation to Jax.
He kept her real… Their relationship was good when she wasn’t pinning over U know who!! Never understood her
blind devotion to Sonny..
Jax owes Sonny for keeping him out of the country for so long, & not in a good way..

I agree with you. I like Jax, but with Ava? I never thought about them as a pair. He always had the hots for Brenda too, and yes, Carly has this blind devotion to St.Benard, whose bite scares everyone in PC.


Ava is too much for any man long term…bright, beautiful, independent, majorly insecure, manipulative, cunning, devious and ALL ABOUT AVA, ALL THE TIME… Wouldn’t it be a cruel twist of fate… if Kevin & Ava fell for one another during their sting Op to catch Ryan. Where’s that going to leave Laura??? Shouldn’t she be getting a mayor’s office soon???So we can see her working from behind a desk, instead of meandering around town aimlessly.
As for Sonny & Carly’s future we’re probably in for more of the same… boring, repetitive dialogue.
If Jax is here to stay.. and that’s a BIG
if, I hope they do his character justice.

There is one bright spot in the Corinthos house. Their new kitchen! So sick of Sonny’s dark, dreary LR or whatever that room is supposed to be . So masculine. Would think once Carly moved in, they would have redecorated. I know this has nothing to do with SLs, just making an observation.


I hear you and raise you one…regarding the “new kitchen”
Where they will no doubt converge
regularly, until it seems like the only
room in the house. The remaining rooms are dark and equally need to be updated, like you mentioned it would definitely benefit from a woman’s touch.


is this a short visit? or is he back on contract? I hope its the ladder, we need Jax back on full time, Ingo deserves it as much as Steve Burton, so I hope he stays, and has someone w/ him, and he’s not panning for boring Carly.


He will play Ryan Chamberlain wearing a Jax mask-ok kiddidng -lol


If ReRon were still writing this show, that is exactly what would happen!


I mean come on !!!! as all of the Corinthos’ are full steam ahead… looking for any thing to bring Shiloh down. you’ve got Sonny henchs; you’ve got the polish commish team on this; you’ve got Dr. hottie Neil ready to perform an excorcism; hell even Alexis is remaining staid .. no matter how pent up her needs . Yawn , all the while Sam who is so besotted over that she is in the running for GODDESS of day of dawn. even General Hospital is running drug laced tests on their communion.

Maxie AND Peter : dag! this couple along with Anna AND Finn… are seriously thee MOST BORING pairings EVER. let’s ADD Michael and Sasha ! LOL. Sasha seriously likes him ? here’s hoping her “honesty” will not spiral Michael.

HELLO – all points bulletin… calling Diane to the set; calling Dr. Neil to the set

Dr Neil and Diane
Laura and Kevin
Brad and Lucas
Ned and Olivia
Mac and Felicia
Scotty and Ava and/or Lucy

^^^ this is coupledom

I can’t blame Ingo for taking a job that’s offered to him, but it can’t be very satisfying to have Jax be shuffled in and out of town and relegated to being Sonny’s punching bag–because as we all know, Sonny Must Never Lose or Be Allowed to Suffer Any Lasting Consequences; that’s on the law books in Port Charles. I always liked Jax, and if his relationships (particularly with Sonny) were allowed to evolve at all, it might be good to have him around again. But I know that won’t be allowed to happen, and he’s just going to be Sonny’s whipping boy once more; Jax will attempt to bring rationality to some situation or make some perfectly reasonable request, and it will be written as Jax attempting to destroy Sonny’s world because Sonny isn’t getting exactly what he wants, exactly when and how he wants it–Sonny Good, Jax Bad. It’s boring as heck.


Love Jax before when he was playing opposite to Sam Mcall

With Talk Of Nikolas On GH, Tyler Christopher Says: “I’ve Always Said I Would Never Close That Door From My Side”

On recent episodes of ABC’s General Hospital, a few of the key characters in the life of the “late” Nikolas Cassadine spoke about him including: his on-screen mother, Laura (Genie Francis), his ex, Hayden Barnes (Rebecca Budig), and a woman who would have been poised to be a new love interest, Ava (Maura West).

So with the name-drops and mentions in recent weeks, could the character who was shot by Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) and fell out a glass window on a balcony, be making a return soon and be very much alive?

Soap fans tweeted at the actor most known for his role as Nikolas Cassadine (in which he won a Daytime Emmy for his performance), and former Days of our Lives star, Tyler Christopher, to see what his thoughts were on what could be happening on General Hospital with the character.

Tyler made this statement to his Twitter followers: “You are all very sweet to be so loyaI as you always are. I know they are talking about Nikolas as of late. I’ve always said I would never close that door from my side. I just want to thank you all for always rooting for me and the character. I grew up with him as many of u have.”

For over 20 years, Christopher had played the role of the dark prince of the Cassadines.  When he went on leave from the series in 2016, he was replaced by Nick Stabile, who was Nikolas at the time of the character’s supposed death.

Later, Tyler debut on Days of our Lives and took on the role of the newly created character of Stefan O DiMera.  He was also nominated earlier this year for a Daytime Emmy for Lead Actor for his performance in that role.

Longtime fans of GH have also been active on social media hoping that somehow GH could find a way to bring back both Tyler, as well as his on-screen TV brother, Jonathan Jackson (Ex-Lucky) so Laura could also have her sons back on the canvas.

So, do you think GH is about to bring Nikolas back?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

OLTL Favorite Mark Lawson Appears On General Hospital

Viewers of ABC daytime were in a for a surprise (although rumors had been circulating), when former One Life to Live alum, Mark Lawson showed up on Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital.   In it, Mark came on to the Port Charles scene as Dustin Phillips, a man Lulu (Emme Rylan) was meeting with at the Metro Court for her “story” on online dating, and a potential suspect in the home burglaries tied to a dating app.

Meanwhile, while Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) is away originally being deprogrammed from his nightmare in Turkey, Peter (Wes Ramsey) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms) got news from Mac (John J. York) that there may be a lead to his whereabouts in Ithaca, New York,

Maxie is taking it upon herself to locate Dante and bring him back to Lulu.  In addition, when she noticed Lulu enjoying the company of Dustin a bit too much, she was somewhat alarmed that her bff would be having a good time with another man.

It’s been a minute since daytime fans have seen Lawson, who played Navy Seal, Brody Lovett on One Life.  His character was involved with Jessica (Bree Williamson) and all of her alters: Tess, Bess, Wes, et,c and also Jessica’s sister, Natalie (Melissa Archer).

Once fans got wind of his GH appearance, Lawson posted on Instagram along with his workout videos: “Well .. cat’s out of the bag, Stay soapy, my friends.”

So, will Mark continue on GH as a new love interest for Lulu?  Could Dustin be tied to the crimes Lulu is investigating? Would you like to see Lulu move on with her life if Dante is off the canvas for a long time, or do you hope Dominic Zamprogna returns, and there becomes a triangle, or none of the above? Let us know what should happen for Luly in the romance department via the comment section below.
