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

Courtesy/ABC

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.)

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

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

Celia
Guest

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
Guest
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
Guest
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.

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.

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… Read more »

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.

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.

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

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????

Andrew Trischitta . ( Jack Manning. OLTL).

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.

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
Guest
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
Guest
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
Guest
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!!

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
Guest
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… Read more »

Celia
Guest
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
Guest
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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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!)

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

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.

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.

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.

Kim Delaney on All My Children Primetime Reboot: “All They Have To Do Is Ask, and I’m There”

While Kim Delaney is currently appearing on General Hospital in the role of Jackie Templeton, and she just appeared in her new Lifetime movie, The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt of Justice, the actress revealed she would be up for appearing in the upcoming primetime revival in development of All My Children.

Delaney became soap-famous in the role of AMC’s Jenny Gardner from 1981-1984 before she was killed-off the show in the now iconic jet ski explosion.

Now even though Jenny died, Kim would be up for figuring out how the character could be resurrected or how she could take part in the primetime reboot of the ABC soap opera called, Pine Valley.

In an interview with Soaps.com, Kim shared on being part of the reboot: “All they have to do is ask, and I’m there.  Sure, Jenny died, but someone asked me the other day if we ever saw her body. So maybe she’s out there, somewhere… ”

Former All My Children stars and real-life duo, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are executive producers of Pine Valley along with Andrew Stearn.

So, would you like to see an alive and well Jenny Gardner, or some other role for Delaney, in the All My Children reboot? Comment below.

TONIGHT: Kim Delaney Stars in Lifetime’s ‘The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice’

Make sure to catch General Hospital and former All My Children and NYPD Blue star, Kim Delaney (Jackie, GH, Ex-Jenny, AMC) tonight on Saturday, February 20th when her highly-anticipated Lifetime movie debuts beginning at 8pm EST/7pm CST which marks the cable network’s 400th original movie.

In The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice, it tells the story of Mari Gilbert’s search for the truth behind what happened to her daughter Shannan, a sometime escort who disappeared after a ‘date’ on Long Island.

After Shannan (Katharine Isabelle, Hannibal) fails to come home, her mother Mari (Delaney) knows something is terribly wrong. Pleading to police to take her concerns seriously, she keeps pushing the police for answers. Mari’s insistence that her daughter not be overlooked eventually leads to a horror hidden on Long Island for more than a decade – 19 bodies of young women discovered buried in shallow graves along Ocean Parkway in the area of Jones Beach State Park. Though the search for the killer is still ongoing, Mari’s passionate dedication to giving her daughter and other forgotten women a voice, and the attention they deserve, has kept the case alive with hopes of a breakthrough soon. The movie not only follows a mother’s tireless search for the truth, but it also digs deep into the murders, including Shannan’s, that have gone unsolved for so long.

Delaney’s film, executive produced by Deborah Norville, is based off real life-events that transpired in the early 2010’s where the crimes were never solved.

In an interview with 98.1 WOGL Radio’s Glenn Kalina, Delaney shared: “There is hope in the film… but you also want an answer… what happened to all of these girls?  My character just was relentless trying to find her (daughter) or find answers where she was.  They found a bunch of other bodies, and what they learned was that they were all escorts… and then they learned there was a possible serial killer.”

Check out a promo for the movie below.

‘ABC Daytime: Back on Broadway’ Raises $130,565 For Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS In Four Day Streaming Event

Last week, ABC Daytime fans were thrilled to see some of the archival footage and performances from the ABC Daytime: Salutes Broadway Cares benefit concerts by those who were once in the mighty soap programming block that included: All My Children, One Life to Live and General Hospital. 

While only GH remains, viewers still loved seeing many of their favorites perform in the streaming event, ABC Daytime: Back on Broadway, from Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, which featured footage from those events that ran from 2005-2011 in front of a live audience in New York City.

The 2021 online event, which kicked-off on February 11th and streamed for four days, featured new content with daytime favorites including: Susan Lucci, Cameron Mathison, Anthony Geary, Kelly Ripa and more, plus performances from the past benefits, and an original dance performance from Finola Hughes (Anna Devane) on the set of GH.

John Dietrich, who directed each of the ABC Daytime Salutes Broadway Cares concerts, wrote and directed the stream. It was presented in partnership with ABC Owned Television Stations’ websites around the country with support from Good Morning America and The View.

According to Broadway World, in total, the ABC Daytime Back on Broadway event raised $130,565. The streaming total includes a matching donation of $50,000 made by Broadway Cares supporters The Dream Alliance.  Now, when combined with the seven-year run of the annual concerts, the ABC Daytime stars have raised $2,020,565 for Broadway Cares.

As part of the event week, Michael Fairman chatted with former One Life to Live star, Catherine Hickland (Ex-Lindsay Rappaport) about her performances over the years at the event, her role of Lindsay and her on-screen feud with Nora (Hillary B. Smith), and more.  You can watch it below.

What did you think of the ABC Daytime: Back on Broadway streaming event? Did you enjoy seeing the performances? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
