As Ingo Rademacher is deep into dance rehearsals with his partner, Kym Johnson as one of the competing teams for the upcoming season of Dancing with the Stars, premiering on March 18th on ABC, EXTRA dropped by the dance studio to catch up with Australian heartthrob.  During their conversation, EXTRA got some scoop on the announcement that he and long time on-screen scene partner, Vanessa Marcil are headed back to Port Charles with a small story arc as Jax and Brenda!

Ingo revealed on his GH return: “I had to keep it a secret for so long… I had to lie.  It’s a nice little come back with Vanessa Marcil… the Jax and Brenda characters back together for a little bit.  It was a great idea to bring the characters back for the 50th.”    Rademacher also noted that he is already back this week at GH taping scenes with Marcil!

Now on to Dancing with the Stars,  of course Ingo related that he asked long time GH cast mate Kelly Monaco (Sam) for advice when it comes to tips for the ABC ballroom dance competition, and he says Kelly gave him tidbit, “It’s really hard, but you’re going to love it.”

So soap fans, will you be rooting Ingo through each week on Dancing with the Stars? What do you think Jax and Brenda’s story will be when they return to GH for a visit? Weigh-in! Now watch Ingo’s EXTRA segment after the jump!

Maybe theyll be married? But would Sonny or Carly care or not? I just wonder how theyll react if Jax and Brenda were married even if Sonny and Carly have moved on.

I am psyched to have them both return! Looking forward to seeing what team Cartini can do for Brenda, since the last regime made her unrecognizable.

As for DWTS, I will watch his dances the next day on YouTube and will be voting for him!

Not watching or voting for DWTS.If it wasn’t for GH I’d never turn on ABC anymore.Wouldn’t surprise me if they eventually hand GH over to PP to.Anne Sweeney made it clear she didn’t want any daytime scripted shows.Looks like they adding more reality to night time to.If you vote you make money for ABC.

am hoping that Ingo wants a CarJax reunion because as we all know it CarJax and S&B are the loves of each others lives. It’s that simple. I don’t want Jax to be with Brenda coz she has always treated him like a second hand fiddle whenever she could not have Sonny. And she’s always remember to try and turn Sonny’s life upside down when he’s starting to move on. Actually you know what? Here’s a solution……. Sonny and Connie or Kate or whoever were each other’s first loves. Carly is the love of Jax’s life and we’ve all witnessed… Read more »

Definitely rooting for him; only one I’m tuning in for this season. DWTS is a spectacular entertainment show..one of my absolute favorites. But for me, personally, the “celebrities” this upcoming season, other than Ingo, is a letdown.

Being on J&B. Sonny’s gone back to his first love, best love – Kaconnie. Carly’s going back to Original Baby Daddy, AJ. And Jax back to his real love, Brenda.

They should bring Jax on full time. I wouldn’t watch a show because someone from Dancing With The Stars was on but it would remind most GH viewers who are casual viewers, who tune in now and then, to switch channels if they aren’t busy, or dvr it.

Not a Jax fan at all. I read he is very short term. I hope that is correct. Brenda I used to love. Last time she was on I couldn’t wait for her to leave. Maybe the new writer’s will write her a little more likeable but I hope every guy on the show doesn’t fall at her feet like the last time. It was sickening. I hate those thick black glasses she wears. I hope she puts in her contacts. I wear glasses so I am not anti glasses. I just don’t like the ones she wears on her.… Read more »

I love Ingo and have missed him on GH so much. I just wished he could be paired with someone who really, really loves him,. I think they are going full steam ahead with Carly and Todd, so Carly is out. They will most likely dangle Sonny into Brenda’s life so it’s hard to get into that one too. Actually, I would love to see Jax with Alexis or someone totally new. Just as long as there isn’t another man always waiting in the background. This is what has turned me off of Carly and Brenda. There will always be… Read more »

Look for Nikolas Cassadine to have a new look on tomorrow’s Wednesday, September 29th episode of General Hospital when Adam Huss temporarily replaces Marcus Coloma in the role for that episode.

Although no reason has been given for the short recast, Huss shared on his website: “I heard a little rumor that I’ll be on @generalhospitalabc this week, getting to play #nikolascassadine for a moment.”

Huss had previously shared on a post on his Instagram which has since been taken down: “Tune in Sept. 29th, Wednesday, on ABC for the juicy stuff!”  It appears Huss got to play opposite Maura West (Ava) and Kin Shriner (Scott) in scenes when he also added: “Got to work with some amazing folks and consummate professionals! Thank you to the best (casting director), Mark Teschner, and his amazing crew.”

Adam has previously appeared in daytime on Days of our Lives, The Bold and the Beautiful and Passions, and in primetime on Power, NCIS and Everwood, to name but a few.

Nancy Lee Grahn Debuted 25 Years Ago Today as General Hospital’s Alexis Davis

Back on September 26th, 1996, (25 years ago today!) the new character of Alexis Davis made her debut on ABC’s General Hospital, and brought to the iconic soap opera, the talents of Nancy Lee Grahn.

Grahn, had already made a name for herself with her captivating portrayal of lawyer Julia Wainwright Capwell on Santa Barbara for which she won a Supporting Actress Daytime Emmy in 1989, in a tie with AMC’s Debbi Morgan.

Back in April, General Hospital, marked this milestone with a special episode for Grahn, that could be remembered come next year’s Emmys.

Alexis, or shall we call her “Natasha”, was introduced on GH as the daughter of Mikkos Cassadine and his mistress, whose throat was slit by Helena Cassadine, which has played into Alexis’ story for many years to come.  At the time of her entrance to the show, Wendy Riche was GH’s executive producer.

Through the years, viewers have witnessed Grahn’s portrayal of: a tough legal eagle, an honest depiction of a woman battling the bottle, failed romances, while all the time being a loving and faithful mother to her three daughters, Sam, Molly, and Kristina.

Nancy won her second Supporting Actress Daytime Emmy, this time for her role as Alexis in 2012, and has been a multi-nominee in the Lead Actress category for her performances on the ABC daytime drama series.

Kate Grahn, Nancy’s daughter took to social media within the last few hours since we posted this story to share a video on how thankful she and her mom are to GH fans and Nancy’s time on the show which afforded her the ability to have and raise Kate.  Check that out below.

Here’s to Nancy for giving us 25 years of her on-screen work as Alexis!

Congratulate Nancy and tell us your favorite Alexis Davis moments via the comment section.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Comes Home as Jason and Carly Begin Their Wedding Night

Monday’s episode of General Hospital continued to set the stage for major payoffs in the long and winding road tale of everyone in Port Charles believing Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) is dead.

Only now, with his memory in tact, Sonny is very much alive, no longer living as “Mike” in Nixon Falls. and back in the town which he ruled as the mob kingpin.  Problem is: his wife, Carly (Laura Wright) just got married to his best friend, Jason (Steve Burton) and they are about to have their first night together as newlyweds.  And without all the subplot and subtext, Sonny has no idea that they were first brought together to be a united front to save Sonny’s territory from the ‘Five Families’.  Only now, the two have admitted they truly are in-love with each other.

In story, after the bomb that went off was proven to kill mobsters Buscema and Novak, and not its intended target – the newlyweds – thanks to a double-cross from Ms. Wu – Jason, Carly, and Ms. Wu discuss Cyrus Renault’s (Jeff Kober) involvement and that Wu is happy for Jason and Carly.

 

At the wedding reception, Michael (Chad Duell) gives a touching speech about his mom and Jason and gives the official toast.  Later, Jason and Carly head out after Carly throws the bouquet which Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) catches.

Meanwhile, back in Nixon Falls, Sonny gets out of dodge and away from Nina (Cynthia Watros), thanks to Jax’s (Ingo Rademacher) plane, while Nina gets a visit from Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) and Anna (Finola Hughes), where she admits that Peter (Wes Ramsey) was in Nixon Falls, and caused the fire, and is going to go after Maxie (Kirsten Storms) and the baby.  She does not tell them what she did keeping Sonny away from his family for 9 months.

Anna and Peter split up to find Peter, and Peter’s exit ride hasn’t show up yet to get him out of Nixon Falls, so Anna catches him, gun drawn.

Later at the Corinthos home, Jason and Carly are alone together in the bedroom with wedding night jitters, but Jason says there is no rush as the two kiss, just as Sonny arrives home, smiles, looks around, sees photos of himself with Carly and the family, and heads upstairs!

Will Sonny find the two in each others arms and not tell then he is alive?  Will something call him away? Will Jason and Carly have sex? When will Nina get payback for all that she has done to Carly and Sonny?  Will Peter get away from Anna? Let us know your theories in the comment section below.
