Is GH Recasting Morgan Corinthos? If So, Who Would You Suggest For The Part?

Soap fans learned just the other week that Daytime Emmy winner, Bryan Craig (Morgan) decided to quit General Hospital to pursue other acting career endeavors.  Thus, leaving a gaping hole in the Corinthos family unit.

There has been speculation that the series will “kill-off” Morgan, but now comes some intriguing casting news via Soap Opera Digest about a casting breakdown that was sent out through Hollywood that sounds like the ABC soap is recasting the role of Carly (Laura Wright) and Sonny’s (Maurice Benard) son!

The casting description notes that the sudser is looking for a “20 to 25 years old, Caucasian male. He is brooding and intense. He is complicated and troubled. Underneath his edge he is a soulful young man trying to figure things out.”

It also notes that the actor who nabs the role would start shooting his episodes at the end of October, which is just over a month away.

So, it’s time for you to put on your casting directors hat, and suggest, which actor known for their work in daytime, or primetime do you think would fit the bill as the new Morgan Corinthos? Who would you like to see GH bring in to jump start the role, if it is indeed a casting breakdown for Morgan?  Share your casting suggestions in the comment section below!

The guy who plays Joey on Days! (So then he would leave Days.)

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

The actor who played Jack Manning on OLTL…maybe not the greatest actor but i believe he would be good at playing moody and angry Morgan as he was as moody and angry Jack…so, he is another OLTL actor…lol

Rebecca1

Oh no, Jim! With all the excellent actors to choose from… Little “Sam” maybe…:)

Celia

Oh, Rebecca. I thought Andrew played the recalcitrant, moody, hot-headed -child of the ‘rich and famous’ so excellently. And, he was sooo very young, at the time. He could have only gone forward with his acting skill.
By the same token; if a more mature, ‘seasoned’, young actor is sought, then Karen Clark, below, pointed out Robert Scott Wilson is also an outstanding actor. I don’t think you watch Days, but if you did, you would agree, I’m that confident. LOL.

Rebecca1
Rebecca1

Ummmmmm…let me not say other than I just don’t see Andrew in the role. But, he’s good-looking.

Looked up your other actor. Cute…but not familiar with his acting; I’ll take your word for it. I still like Nic Robuck or Robert Gorrie. They’re going to be big shoes to fill because you know I think Bryan is great in the role.

Speaking of acting chops, I think Ryan Paevy has come a long way. And…just when I thought he couldn’t get any better looking…wow…he’s just exquisite!

Celia
Celia

Oh, I will not dispute or refute your take on Ryan P. I said this before….but, he looks so much like Guy Williams– the 50’s ZORRO. Soooo hot!! I know he’s before our time; but my grandparents have a caravan of all these wonderful ‘old’ shows. THE HONEYMOONERS is another of my favorites. Hilarious.
Robert Scott Wilson is sure to win the Emmy.( I hope–he deserves it) . His character, Ben, is in jail, right now. LOL. He was the best bad, bad boy, killer, I had seen on a soap in a long, long time.

Celia

Oh, I forgot to mention, Rebecca, that Robert S Wilson also acted the role of Petey Cortlandt on AMC.

Do not recast. I prefer there being a gaping hole in the Corinthos family unit. Every other family has been gutted. It’s time for this one to recede rather than expand.

KansasGuest

Here, here! I appreciated Craig in the bipolar storyline. But, I really don’t want that to be a running theme in the soap. Every time I see the character of Morgan now, all I can think of is the condition. Even over the character. Ava is messing with his meds & all of his decisions are suspect. So, once again, it’s all about the condition and how he’s not to be held responsible by viewers for what he’s doing. It’s exhausting as a viewer to continue to excuse him. Just let the character leave for a while – like a couple of years.

Rebecca1

Try to get Casey Moss away from DAYS. He’s very promising, sympathetic, and extremely handsome. Not as intense as Bryan but we can work on that.

Celia

Yes, Soaphound. I can see Casey acting as Morgan. He is a very versitile actor. Look how well he went from a self-destructive character to a respected cop.
I would think that Morgan will ‘go away’ to some kind of facility where he will get help and then return ‘brand new’…..literally. LOL.

Any young Wahlberg’s out there?

I think I got the perfect candidate—how about Jake Silbermann who played Noah on ATWT? There would be the same look and if he can play a young gay man like he did on ATWT, he can definitely pull off playing a young man who is bipolar.

Soaphound

Thanks for remembering Jake, James. He was wonderful and easy to like. Not sure if he can still play early 20s, but I’d be willing to try it.

The guy who played Jack Manning on OLTL comes to mind. Not a lot of guys that age with soap experience so probably someone new-ish will get the role.

Melissa Clark

I feel Kristos Andrews from The Bay would be
perfect!! His acting is amazing (also he won an Daytime Emmy for best actor
In a independent drama web series) and he fits the description to play
Morgan!!

I believe there was talk of getting Tom Pelphrey to play Dante back when that role was created. I’d like to see Tom come on GH as a bi-sexual, roguish doctor who sleeps his way through town, even bedding brother and sister Lucas and Sam. It’s never been done before and Tom could sell it!

isn’t morgan suppose to be half caucasian and half latino? or is sonny now anglo? just asking, since the casting is only limited to white actors.

KansasGuest
KansasGuest

I thought “Corinthos” was a Greek name. The actor has Latino roots. But, I never saw Sonny as a Latino (or Hispanic) character. Just a NY mobster.

Shay
Shay

Sonny (and Ric, too, for that matter…) is described as half-Cuban courtesy of his mother, Adela and one-quarter each Greek and Irish, from his father, Mike Corbin (aka, “Corinthos?”) Oh, and Ric’s father, Trevor Lansing, was also Caucasian, although I don’t know if his ethnic background was ever specified. I think he was supposed to a blueblood????

Celia

Andrew Trischitta . ( Jack Manning. OLTL).

Rebecca1

Jim’s suggested that. I think he needs much more acting chops…

This one is easy. Robert Scott Wilson should be a lock for Morgan Corinthos. He played Ben on Days and is a fabulous actor!

Yessss! Good one, Karen.

Oh, Celia….Robert on GH the same time as Billy Miller? I’ll need to find a pill to keep me from Fainting! But I’ll deal.

@Soaphound.
I know, right!!?? I have three sisters, Soaphound. All four of us are in love with Robert S Wilson ( hot, hot, hot) and Billy Miller. Oh, I forgot my grandmother. LOL.

Amanda

There is only one name right now that stands out…. Someone young, fresh, intense and of course good looking- Kristos Andrews. Most known for his role on THE BAY. I’m definitely a fan of his and even to see how he has grown as an actor just on that role alone! I don’t constantly watch GH BUT if Kristos was an added cast member, I would!!!

Rita
Rita

Would nice to see maybe Nick Stabile who played Nick for a while. Nick is such a good looking guy. Wouldn’t mind looking at him as morgan. It would make so much more sense then trying to bring a dead person back like they have been doing .

Celia
Celia

Nick Stabile cannot play Morgan. Too old.

Joe
Joe

Age doesn’t matter anymore. I recall when Spencer was born. Courtney died and Carly was helping take care of Spencer long before she married Jax and had Jocelyn. Now, Jocelyn is considerably older than Spencer. They can rewrite soaps and make Morgan older than Michael! Reminds me of Joey Martin on AMC. He was 8 years old one day, came back 6 months later from college and in his 20s.

Rebecca1
Rebecca1

Nick Stabile is in 45. Yes, they’ve played with age…Bryan Craig is 24…LOL..I think this is a tad out of the realm of possibility.

Celia
Celia

@Joe.
I agree that age does not matter, in many cases. I have said so many times, myself…..the age discrepancy is often so ridiculous.
But, in this instance, I honestly feel that Nick Stabile is all wrong. He looks older than Carly….she has a youthful appearance, as it is. I just can’t see Nick, as Morgan, call Carly; ” Mom”. What about Sonny? With Maurice’s sense of humor….I can just imagine his reaction…..The picture just doesn’t compute, in my head. LOL.
However, I am in no position to naysay anything anyone says….c’est tres possible!!

#AndrewTrischitta aka Jack Manning from OLTL to play the role of Morgan Corinthos

I think killing Morgan is a bit much, but recommitting him to mental hospital far away is better. The knowledge that Ava changed Morgan’s meds is just the PUSH Sonny needs to destroy the Jerome family.

Justice
Justice

Morgan as a character and GH is ripe and ready to pull off a suicide storyline. There are so many intriguing storylines that would result from it:

1) Ava’s guilt over messing with Morgan’s prescription and possible ramifications if she is caught;
2) Carly’s guilt for not doing something when she knew something was wrong;
3) Kiki wondering if it had to do with their fighting;
4) Sonny dealing with the guilt of passing his disorder on to Morgan and losing his only biological son.

Suicide is the #2 killer of youth. Soap operas need to up their story telling and this is a way to do it.

Celia
Celia

Yes, Justice. It would make sense, due to his disorder. However, I do not like this type of send-off. It has no positive message for the youths who are afflicted with this disorder. The message should be one of hope….not despair!!!! My opinion only.

KansasGuest
KansasGuest

Great idea about the suicide angle! But, I have to agree with Celia because it wouldn’t really be about mental health because of Ava’s involvement. Morgan was taking his meds correctly and was on a better path. If suicide is going to be part of a storyline, it should be with a character who is NOT taking an active role in his/her mental health, and who is completely avoiding his situation, to show the downfalls of doing so. I don’t want other characters beating themselves up over something that they had no control over.

GH has 2 good psychiatrist/psychologist characters right now. So, it seems like a good time to address the issue. But, the character isn’t in the right place to do it IMO. If Morgan commits suicide now, it all becomes about getting revenge on Ava & the Jeromes, & not about the difficulty of dealing with a family member who doesn’t want to deal with their mental illness (or how some conditions still can’t be entirely addressed with drugs).

Rose
Rose

Justice…I hear were you are coming from but would far rather see steps to wellness than your solution. Especially after having seen the gruesome ending to Sabrina. But at least they followed up with all of the positive things she had brought into people’s lives. Would way rather everyone connect the dots with Morgan’s latest behaviours and grab him again before he self destructs. I think this would be far more positive than what you suggested. After all in his case this latest has been a matter of chemistry and deceit at the hands of Ava and not some of the unfortunate social issues that are plaguing teenagers or anyone else finally succumbing to despair. Show steps to the light and not the dark.

As for what happens to Morgan because Bryan is leaving, let him go for an extended rest to Sonny’s island.

Rebecca1
Rebecca1

The thing that’s going to frustrate me IF they go the route I’m suspecting is that no one is going to realize Ava switched Morhan’s melds until he’s lost it completely and probably sent back to the hospital. Uggggggg…that is going to be really hard to watch…and infuriate me. (LOL, but I do love Maura/Ava so once again..will they find out she did it…isn’t that a jailable offense? Sonny now has two reasons to kill her!)

Timmm
Timmm

No contest, Max Ehrich who played Fenn on Y&R. He was great in “Under the Doom” and would be great with Maurice.

Celia
Celia

Yes!!

Timmm
Timmm

It appears to me that the way Morgan and Sonny are reacting to Julian being free and taunting them, Julian will end up dead and Morgan will take the fall and go off screen to prison. No recast. Just a gut feeling.

Soaphound

I second, third, and fourth that, Timmm.

He could handle the task, for sure.

Chandler Massey possibly?

Robert Scott Wilson who played Ben on DOOL would be great. The character of Ben started out a bit flat but Wilson really had a chance to show what he could do in that role.

Jimmy

I think it’s a bad idea to kill off Morgan, and recasting him doesn’t feel right either. I think they should take the character off the canvas for a while (along with Kiki) and send him to school or something. Have him return in a year or somewhere down the line if Craig chooses to return, or consider a recast at that time. Not now. GH is already too cluttered with characters so taking Morgan off the show would do it a favor.

su0000
su0000

I really do not care who..
I am still waiting for the Snooze Queens to do something meaningful with;

JVP/Joe …. He is so wasted / and a great talent .

James Patrick/Valentin … He is wasted a great character and actor.

Why don’t they do something meaningful with the great ‘characters’ and talent that they waste , huh .

(( J&S simply do not have the know-how, imagination, talent to write for Valentin and Joe so they let them fade away.

Whomever replaces Morgan may well be again a full blown bipolar with nothing else to play or be/become than the horrible bipolar role Bryan walkout of.

nancy dillingham

Yes, again, su0000, JVP/Joe–“so wasted . . . great talent.”

Celia

Right on, SuzieQ!!!! Very well said.
But, let’s hope that nuMorgan will be written in a positive way…..one of compliance and recovery.
Otherwise, what would be the point? We have seen what the disorder can do to a body. We have seen what dastardly deeds Ava and Company can do….Now, let’s see the light!!

Rebecca1

He has been on his meds CeeCee. They have done justice to his story…fear, denial, anger, resistance, acceptance, hope and dealing…until Ava.

Rebecca1
Rebecca1

CeeCee…I also posted this to you a while back but not sure if you saw it. Unfortunately (though not sure if the current writers know this history and purposely created a similarity), AJ was an alcoholic. He too was doing well…getting his life back together. Until Carly. She drugged him and left him passed out, but not before pouring alcohol on him so people would think he had relapsed. Ava’s now doing the same to Morgan. Payback’s a bitch. Unfortunately Morgan’s paying the price.

Celia

@Rebecca.
Hey, Rebecca.
I have not been getting any replies in my inbox for a couple of days. I hope the same thing that happened to me before isn’t happening again. I had to change my email address….
But, I do read all the comments, and that’s how find any of the replies to me, personally.
Yes, I do remember you telling me Carly’s, Sonny’s, Michael’s and AJ’s history.
The gall of Sonny and Carly stepping foot into the Quartermaine mansion. I don’t know…it’s a soap, yeah; but, really??
I suppose karma definitely and insidiously found its way within the Corinthos’s ‘establishment’. Moral of the story…. Don’t mess with the cosmos—- the well-ordered universe.
Ava’s machinations are something to behold, are they not? Pathetic. But, I love Maura. She is incredibly the total package.
Ava is a panther. Sleek and smooth with a gorgeous smile hiding some pretty venomous fangs. Ready to pounce on some hapless guy!!
What’s that Santana song? Oh, yeah..BLACK MAGIC WOMAN.

Recasting Morgan Corinthos is a great idea. We don’t need another death on GH.

I say write the role of Morgan out of General Hospital for a period of 6-8 months while he undergoes severe treatment for his bipolar disorder, and then should Bryan Craig still not want to return to the soap, recast him with Robert Gorrie (ex-Matthew, OLTL).

There is no “severe treatment” for bipolar. He’d be fine if Ava hadn’t switched his meds.

just like, Bryan Craig… stole the thunder and show… from all those characters associated with the Corinthos Clan

both men… respectfully… sexy

GH Nurses’ Ball 2019 Part Four: Joss Sings For Oscar, Valentin Takes The Stage, Kevin In Dire ‘Straits’, Ava Waits For Ryan

The conclusion of the GH Nurses’ Ball 2019 episodes brought with it emotional moments and performances from the stage, and major drama with yet to come ramifications for several people of Port Charles.

After Ryan (Jon Lindstrom) knocked out Kevin and switched places with him, yet again, the serial killer is on the loose at the ball. Later, when Scott (Kin Shriner) is backstage and is upset about Ava’s (Maura West) relationship with Kevin, Scott comes face-to-face with “Kevin” and having enough, tries to grab Scott’s hand to stop him from leaving. But, lo and behold, off comes his prosthetic hand.  Next, Ryan clubs Scott over the head, who now is the only person that saw Ryan at the ball.

Elsewhere, Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) confronts Willow (Katelyn MacMullan), after overhearing her conversation with Diane that she has a child, and he asks here if she was pregnant when she left “Dawn of Day”.  She claims she miscarried their child, but he refuses to believe a word out of her mouth and becomes irate.

Courtesy/ABC

Michael (Chad Duell) saves Willow and warns Shiloh to stay away from her and his family. An out-of-sorts Shiloh heads back to his table where Sam (Kelly Monaco), Lucas (Ryan Carnes) and Brad (Parry Shen) are.  Shiloh informs Sam that he just found out someone had his baby and deceived him.  Lucas and Brad are both alarmed.

The first musical performance of the episode was Ned (Wally Kurth) and Olivia’s (Lisa LoCicero) rendition of Seals & Crofts classic, “Get Closer”.  Wally Kurth and Lisa LoCicero remain one of the endearing duos on the show.

Meanwhile, the question. and of course. the big musical finale hinged on Josslyn Jacks (Eden McCoy), and if she would perform the song she wrote with Oscar (Garren Stitt) at his request and in his honor.  In the best scene of all the ball episodes this year, Sonny (Maurice Benard) finds a conflicted Joss outside the ballroom.  She says she thought she was stronger and could do this, but she isn’t.  An emotional Sonny shares with her how Oscar will always be with her, and be OK with whatever choice she makes. Sonny relates it back to Stone and his relationship with him while the young man was living and while he has been deceased.  Maurice Benard and Eden McCoy delivered in this tender scene.

Courtesy/ABC

In the next musical number, Valentin Cassasdine (James Patrick Stuart) attempts to calm down a drunken Nina (Michelle Stafford), who is all out of sorts due to her hatred of Willow.(and perhaps her lust for Jax?), by taking to the stage to perform his number.  This time, Stuart plays the piano and sings “Nothing without You” by Vienna Tang.  And once again, Valentin wowed the audience, and James sang beautifully, as he has each year at the ball.

Still undecided if she can perform, Josslyn worries she’s letting everyone down. Jax (Ingo Rademacher) comes to see her and reassures her, saying she doesn’t have to prove anything to anyone, she just needs to follow her heart.

Finally, Josslyn makes the decision to perform, and that she does in the emotional high point of the episode.  As she performs this song about the list of things she and Oscar were planning to do together before the young man died, and how she will carry it with her, she sees Oscar in the back of the ballroom in his tux singing with her and rooting her on.  Kudos to Eden McCoy for being the heartbeat of this year’s ball, along with Lynn Herring, who the ‘ball’ would not be the ball without Lucy Coe,

Courtesy/ABC

As the Nurses’ Ball winds down, Shiloh is becoming unglued, and as Sam tries to calm him down, he tells her she needs to finish her initiation tonight.  He says he needs her to be in the ‘trust’ and he needs her strength.  Oh-oh!  Will Sam go through with this to trap the guy, or are we going to witness a major backfire?

A massive light bulb has gone off in Lucas’ head and he tells Brad he believes Willow and Shiloh are Wylie’s birth parents. Brad doesn’t know what to say, and we all know why!

As Lucy is instructing the clean up crew to take everything down on the stage, the curtains open and Kevin is suspended in midair hoisted up, knocked out, and trapped in a straight-jacket!  Everyone is horrified.  Cut to Ava who is at her safe house preparing to kill Ryan all by herself.  She gets everything in place, while she sips on some booze and waits for Ryan to arrive, and sure enough, we come to the cliffhanger.   Ryan sees Ava from outside the widow.  What will happen next?

So, what did you think of the final installment of this year’s Nurses Ball? What did you think of the performances from Joss, Valentin, and Ned and Olivia? Will Ava kill Ryan, or will someone else do it? Share your thoughts via the comment section below. But first,check out Josslyn’s AKA Eden McCoy’s performance below.

General Hospital’s New Opening Title Sequence

Last Friday on the May 17th episode of ABC’s General Hospital, viewers took note of a new version of the opening title sequence of the daytime drama series.

Some thought perhaps it was tied to the GH Nurses’ Ball episodes since that is when it debuted, but in fact, it turns out it is the new updated title sequence moving forward.

With slower images of the cast, new theme music, and the end graphic plate bringing back the hospital image; thus far fans have seemed to like the new and improved version from what was previously airing.

A GH spokesperson told Michael Fairman TV on the change: “We ‘opened it up’ so that we could better feature our amazing cast.  And the back plate of the hospital is to honor our longtime GH fans.  The new music was composed by Paul Glass.”

So, what do you think of the new opening title sequence featuring the slides of the characters/cast in Port Charles, the pace of the new theme, and the retro use of the GH hospital image? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
