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

I’m glad you’re optimistic that GH will still be on in a couple of years!

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

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.

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

TearyTam

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

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’s Kathleen Gati and Michelle Stafford Deliver The Power Performance of The Week!

A grieving mother and sister found themselves stuck in a revenge plot gone haywire, that provided the backdrop in which two accomplished actresses; Kathleen Gati (Liesl) and Michelle Stafford (Nina) were able to shine on episodes of General Hospital.

Although Peter’s kidnapping went on far too long, and fans on social media have their own viewpoints as to what they think of Mr. August aka Henrik Faison (Wes Ramsey), the final week of taking Peter hostage to torment him as payback for his part in Nathan’s death; gave Gati and Stafford scenes from the comedic, to the emotional, to the cray-cray, and more..

Courtesy/ABC

On Thursday’s episode, Nina is trying to talk down Liesl from torching the place, but Liesl is becoming more unhinged and more grief-stricken.  She says to Nina, “I lost my son.  I gave Nathan up to protect him.  I spent my life not even daring to gaze in his direction for fear that Cesar would take him.  I never wanted my son to be like him, and now my beautiful boy is buried in the ground, while the other son is still breathing!  So, I must finish this my way, Nina  …  with or without you!”

Pleading, an emotional Nina responds: “Aunt Liesl, you are not the only one who lost time with Nathan.  I did, too.  I missed him growing up.  I missed his childhood, and seeing the incredible man he turned into.  I feel his absence and I feel the loss every second of every day.  I hate Faison, and I will for the rest of my life, and I hate Anna (Finola Hughes) just like you did, but that does not justify what I have done… being an accomplice in this crazy revenge.  None of that is going to bring my brother back.”   Nina goes on to say:  “I knew J would not want his mother grieving alone. This isn’t grief anymore … this is madness.”

Obrecht with rage and sadness in her eyes says, “The brightest souls like my Nathan are extinguished.”  And from there, as viewers know by now, Liesl sets the fire, which sets the stage for Nina’s rescue, and the Friday cliffhanger of Finn (Michael Easton) having to decide whether to go in the burning building and get Peter out, or not.

Courtesy/ABC

Later on the pier, a stoic, but grief-stricken Liesl is arrested.  She spitefully tells Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Jordan (Vinessa Antoine), “Tell Anna something for me: ‘Now we are even!”‘

Earlier in the week, we saw how Kathleen Gati navigated the comedic yet dramatic moments as she had to knock Franco (Roger Howarth) out, while she was trying to get back to Spoon Island, as he realized Obrecht was the guilty party who took Peter.

Gati has made Obrecht, this one-of-a-kind character, come to life, no matter what the circumstances the writers put her in.  And as for Michelle Stafford, when Nina spoke of her brother and the loss she continues to feel, it was one of the most on-the-money moments for anyone who has lost a sibling that they looked to.

So, even through some of the absurdity of the circumstances, and as they were portraying two women trying to figure their way out of the mess they created,  Gati and Stafford never faltered as they committed to the material, and delivered this week’s Power Performance of the Week.

Does GH’s Margaux Have A Connection To Someone In Port Charles? If So, Who?

This week, General Hospital viewers saw that the ABC daytime drama series is teasing a potential pairing of Drew (Billy Miller) and the new district attorney in town, Margaux Dawson (Elizabeth Hendrickson), after the two characters run into each other at a concession stand at the cancelled baseball game.

As fans of the soap genre know, Miller and Hendrickson also played former love interests on The Young and the Restless as Billy Abbott and Chloe Mitchell.

During Hendrickson’s first #AskGH live Twitter Q&A when asked: “Is your character connected to someone on the show?”  Elizabeth responded: “As of now Margaux is new to town … but you never know, there may be some connection that has not be revealed yet :)”

That tweet has left fans speculating if perhaps Margaux, has an ex in Port Charles, is tied to a major family in someway, or perhaps has some legal trouble past?

Recently on GH. when Chase (Josh Swickard) arrived on the scene as the new cop (following Nathan’s (Ryan Paevey) untimely death), it was later revealed that he was actually the half-brother to Finn (Michael Easton).  And as we know in the soaps, connections are usually the key to more long term success in a role, rather than being just a standalone character, but there have been exceptions.

So, who would you like to see Margaux have a connection to on GH?  What do you think will happen with her character? Comment below.
