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.)

    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

      September 21, 2016 at 11:01 pm

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

        September 22, 2016 at 8:05 am

        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

        September 23, 2016 at 3:19 pm

        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

        September 24, 2016 at 11:17 am

        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

    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

      September 23, 2016 at 4:43 am

      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

        September 23, 2016 at 5:44 pm

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

    I would suggest Freddie Smith but I think he is back at Days now.

  11. Soaphound

    September 21, 2016 at 8:31 am

    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

      September 22, 2016 at 11:15 am

      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.

        Sounds good to me, but it would be weird since I’ve known him to be Cole. Stars man. I wonder how he’s doing theses days. Since I quit Twitter I wouldn’t know. I used to follow him.

    The character really isn’t necessary at this point. There’s plenty of Corinthoses to go around.

    Haley Erin shines with RPW’s Dillon. Let this blossom.

    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

      September 22, 2016 at 11:55 am

      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.

    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!!

    He may be a bit too old but Tom Pelphrey would knock this out of the park.

    • Soaphound

      Oh, dare to dream, M M. He would singlehandedly resuscitate GH!

      • Mister Media

        September 22, 2016 at 3:37 pm

        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

      September 23, 2016 at 4:46 am

      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

        September 26, 2016 at 2:17 am

        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).

    • Rebecca1

  24. Karen Clark

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

    September 21, 2016 at 10:39 am

    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!!!

  26. Rita

    September 21, 2016 at 10:40 am

    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

      September 21, 2016 at 7:24 pm

      Nick Stabile cannot play Morgan. Too old.

      • Joe

        September 21, 2016 at 7:57 pm

        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

        September 21, 2016 at 11:08 pm

        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

        September 22, 2016 at 8:13 am

        @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!!

  28. TearyTam

    September 21, 2016 at 11:01 am

    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.

  29. Justice

    September 21, 2016 at 11:07 am

    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

      September 22, 2016 at 8:16 am

      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

      September 23, 2016 at 4:54 am

      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

      September 23, 2016 at 10:31 pm

      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

        September 25, 2016 at 4:16 am

        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!)

        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.

    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.

  33. Jimmy

    September 21, 2016 at 12:21 pm

    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.

    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.

        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

        September 22, 2016 at 3:36 pm

        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.

        @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.

      Yes, I think that’s a great choice too as well as Nic Robuck (James Ford OLTL) which I suggested further down.

    Max Ehrich (Fen Baldwin) from Young&Restless would be perfect. This talented young actor fits the casting description (and then some)!

    Robert Scott Wilson formerly Ben on Days

    you mean laura wright is leaving also. hope not, i cant think of anybody who can replace bryan.

      Laura Wright is not leaving; she re-negotiated her deal a few years back.

      I hadn’t heard about Laura Wright leaving?

    What purpose would it serve? The Morgan character is boring. One less Corinthos on the show is moving in the right direction.

    September 21, 2016 at 5:53 pm

    Andrew Trischetta would be my choice. He worked with Frank Valenti on OLTL. He played a similar role and was excellent.

    Can’t we just leave Morgan off the canvas? I’m cool with one less Corinthos down my throat for awhile! Hey, let’s find out what Brad & Lucas are up too!!!!

  44. Rebecca1

    September 21, 2016 at 11:13 pm

    Nic Robuck (James Ford OLTL).

    I miss the days of Gloria Monty. She never re-casted a role (other than when she first took over the show).

    It would not hurt to let this character go. Explore Dillon and Kiki. We’ve had enough of the Corinthos Family being front and center.

    Bring back the Webber’s and add more Quartermaine’s.

    The character should be off canvas for the foreseeable future. (is there still a foreseeable future for GH?)

  47. Scott (ATWT Fan)

    September 22, 2016 at 7:35 am

    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).

    • Rebecca1

      September 22, 2016 at 2:11 pm

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

    September 22, 2016 at 7:38 am

    Good God, I hope they do not recast this character. Let him go off to school or get a real job, and lets just move on. The character was awful.

    I think a recast would be a good idea. I could see former Y&R star Kevin Schmidt breaking out in the role. I actually think the actor who just wrapped up as Chase on Days would be really good.. though maybe he looks a little young.

    • Patrick

      September 22, 2016 at 9:44 pm

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

      so would… Kevin Schmidt

      GH needs to keep that going… just lose the BP… with all due respect

      Kevin would bring a more controlled performance… mature a little bit

      both men… respectfully… sexy

      • Patrick

        September 22, 2016 at 9:46 pm

        i’m thrilled at all the response… given; Robert Scott Wilson ( ex-Ben, DAYS )

      • Celia

        September 23, 2016 at 7:29 am

        Robert ++++++ . I would welcome him as Morgan in any way, shape or form, Patrick!!!!! That face! That body! My senses are a’reel….

  51. Maxsmom

    September 22, 2016 at 3:18 pm

    Miles Gaston Villanueva though he looks older than 25, he is a terrific actor and could be MB’s son

    • Celia

      September 24, 2016 at 11:32 am

      I don’t know, Maxsmom. The age is about right, but, Miles strikes me as too ‘sofisticated’ looking…too oily and too shady of an appearance. Morgan is none of those things. He has a disorder, not on an ego-trip.
      But, I surrender….it’s possible. LOL.

      • Maxsmom

        September 24, 2016 at 4:03 pm

        I think MGV looked the way Luca was supposed to look and he could look not like BC but like Sonny’s son and I think he has the acting chops to enrich the bipolar story. I like him a lot but he’s recurring on Jane the Virgin so who knows if he would take or FV would ask.

    September 22, 2016 at 11:17 pm

    Eddie Alderson.

      LOL, Michael. Eddie Alderson! What if Kristin were to return as Kiki? Just sayin’.

  53. Suzi

    Jimmy Deschel would be a great choice! He works well w the cast!

  54. clb

    September 24, 2016 at 7:05 pm

    Bryan Craig is a great actor and deserved the Emmy! If more great characters and actors continue to leave GH, I may leave too. Keep the character open for the future and NO recast please.

  55. Michele

    September 24, 2016 at 10:21 pm

    Miles Gaston Villanueva would be FANTASTIC.

  59. Norine H

    Robert Scott Wilson, definitely. Although he may feel. it a step back from crazy Ben to Morgan Corinthos.

    The guy that played Ben Weston,on Days, would be perfect to play Morgan on GH

  64. Cathleen Bircher

    December 10, 2018 at 6:52 pm

    Robert Scott Wilson ‘Ben Weston’ Days of our lives would be the perfect Morgon on General Hospital. This actor has the look and the acting capabilities to be the best Morgon GH ever had. If GH was smart they would make Robert Scott Wilson an offer that will steal him away from Days. If Robert Scott Wilson was smart he would see this move would make him a top star on GH he’s Carly and Sonnys only child together and he can take over Sonnys business so sonny can retire. This actor has the skills to give GH a fresh start and a big boost to number one. So many things can happen for both GH and Robert Scott Wilson if they both make this move. So exciting if it happens

GH’s Michael Easton Posts “Ask Me Anything” Part Two

Over the coronavirus pandemic General Hospital star Michael Easton (Hamilton Finn) has been answering several fans questions posted to him in a series of posts on his official Facebook page. 

This week, Easton posted part two of his “Ask Me Anything”, and the fan favorite said he he will do his best to get through everyone’s questions and thanked those who made donations to America Health Care Workers and food banks during COVID-19.

In part two; questions ranged from: his connection with his on-screen brother played by Josh Swickard, if he would ever consider a return to Days of our Lives to reprise the role of Tanner Scofield (his first soap role), what is his favorite part of playing Hamilton Finn, and the casting of his on-screen daughter Violet played by Jophielle Love and more.

One question posed to Easton revolved around the just completed Daytime Emmys, when he was asked: “How many times have you submitted yourself for the Emmys? Some actors seem to put a real emphasis on being nominated but you don’t seem to care that much?”

Michael responded: “I’m pacing myself. I’ve maybe submitted three or four times in twenty years. It’s a lovely honor but not something I focus on. Everyday I try to give the best, most truthful performance I can and as I long as I can do that…I live with myself.”

Make sure to “Like” Michael’s official Facebook page, if you have not already to see more of his “Ask Me Anything’s”

So, what are your hopes for Hamilton Finn when Michael returns to taping new episodes of General Hospital in the future?

WATCH: 47th Annual Daytime Emmy Winners Virtual Interviews

This year’s 47th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were back on television for the first time since 2011, and back on CBS.  Due to the times we are living in the throes of the coronavirus pandemic, the usual kudofest, honoring the best in daytime programming, had to move from its originally scheduled live event to a virtual one.

That also means for us at Michael Fairman TV, the usual backstage “Winner’s Walk” interviews conducted immediately following some of your daytime drama favorites big wins also had to altered for this unique year.

So we had our own, if you will, “Virtual Winner’s Walk” albeit without the walk and without the glitz and glamour.  That being said, it all felt much more intimate as we spoke immediately following Friday night’s broadcast with these newly crowned winners:  Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’ Jason Thompson (Billy Abbott); Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series winner, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Heather Tom (Katie Logan Spencer); who tied One Life to Live’s Erika Slezak (Ex-Viki) with the most wins by an actress in Daytime Emmy history with 6,  Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’ Bryton James (Devon), and Outstanding Guest Performer in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’, Eva Larue (Ex-Celeste).  All four of these conversations were emotional, candid, and touching.

Over the weekend, we caught up with Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series winner, Tamara Braun (Ex-Kim Nero, General Hospital) for another heartfelt chat on her second all-time win in the category, and Outstanding Writing Team in a Drama Series winner, The Bold and the Beautiful’s executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell, who won this award for the fifth time in his career as he shared how much he learned from his late legendary parents and Y&R and B&B co-creators: Lee Phillip Bell, who was part of the In-Memoriam tribute on the telecast, and the late Bill Bell.

Each of these interviewsare also posted on The Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube.  Make sure to “subscribe” to the channel for more celebrity interviews and features.
