A casting breakdown has gone from General Hospital and it looks like they may be looking for a replacement for the character of TJ, currently played by Krys Meyer, who plays Molly’s (Haley Pullos) boyfriend!

According to Soap Opera Digest, the casting note says the ABC soap is looking for a male, “major, ongoing recurring role” who is “16, African American. Charming, charismatic, very appealing and handsome. A bit cocky, gets into trouble, but has a very soulful, sensitive side.”  The role would begin taping next month.

Ok soapers, here are our questions.: Do you like Krys Meyer in the role of TJ?  If not, who would you suggest GH recast the role with?  Or, do you think this is for another role all together?  Let us know your thoughts!

Maybe they are bringing back Tom Hardy Jr., he should be about this age by now.

Nope, Tom Hardy Jr. would be at least 23.

that would be a great idea especially since he is part of a legacy family

I don’t know if it’s the actor or the way the character is written, but as of right now, TJ is forgettable and a change should be made if they want to keep this character growing. I don’t know if that means recast, a stronger portrayal of the character by the current actor or change in writing for the character.

I agree with you. There’s no chemistry between TJ and Molly as it stands now.

I agree with the ‘forgettable’ that storyline is rather forgettable! ha

i bet if it was tom hardy jr he’d be aged progressed and not really 16.

casting call says ‘major ‘ recurring role – that obviously is NOT TJ that is not major at all.

GH fan

Definitely NOT Tom Hardy Jr. He was born in 1989, so he’d be at least 23.

Tom Hardy Jr, would be around Maxie age based on real time.

Recast for sure.

From the call it sounds like Krys is being replaced. Remember the young actor before Chad D?

I wasn’t a big fan at first, but TJ, and his portrayor, have grown on me. I don’t think a recast is necessary. He and Molly are adorable together.

I agree, I say keep TJ. Their chemistry is acceptable, they are young. Michael and Starr chemistry is no where as great as it was with Abby, that’s chemistry. Even Sonny and Carly had more chemistry than Sonny and Kate or the rest of them, except Tamara Braun.

The character is weak. Especially playing against someone as strong as little Molly.. I vote new young love interest altogether. Haley Pullos is worth it! Side note: still haven’t seen the advantage of re-casting Kristina.. Lexi A. was incredibly good with the very tough storylines they threw at her.

Lexi Ainsworth is SORELY missed by many. This NuKristina is horrible.

They were VERY cute, in my opinion, when Alexis was reading the terms of their dating “contract” last week. However, I just do not think that TJ and Molly have had enough screen time.

That being said, I still think there is so much jumpiness going on. A lot of times an episode will start and it is like dialogue had taken place on the day or days before, but my Tivo didn’t record it. I know this isn’t the case. It is not as choppy as when the new team took over, but I still notice it here and there.

It seems that, due to landing a new job elsewhere, Krys Meyer is leaving the role of TJ, which necessitated a recast.

Eva

I agree, the role of TJ needs some fine tuning to get viewers to care. I only ask one thing from GH: PLEASE do not have Molly get pregnant!!!!!!!!!!!

He’s OK. Though, I wouldn’t miss him.

A recast is a good idea. They also need to bring in spoiled Jack Manning as a spoiler. The once horrible but greatly improved Andrew Trichitta would be good in the role, especially if he’s spent the last few months in acting class.

Molly needs a new love interest. TJ and Molly do not work. Molly is too smart for TJ. She needs someone who ia cute and shares her interests.

What do you mean cute? Krys ain’t ugly. I’ll give you interest sharing.

I don’t think TJ needs to be recast. Give Krys Meyer a chance. He’s doing a great job. What’s wrong with you ABC!

From Daytime Confidential:

“It appears the General Hospital casting call everyone has been talking about all day is in fact for a TJ recast. According to setside sources, Krys Meyer booked a new gig, which has resulted in the role needing to be recast. ”

One of the weaker storylines for me. Current actor made no impact and certainly not when compared to the actress playing Molly.

Tj is forgettable. No chemistry with Molly. We need some charisma in the younger actors… another Vanessa Marcil in the 90’s! I was a pre-teen then and watched just for her young storyline!

I kow what U mean. I miss the days of Venessa Marcil and Maurice, ( Brenda and Sonny). You could fall in love for an hour with Sonny and Brenda on the screen, and they BOTH were so EEEEZZZZZZ to look at. Love them!

PLEASE BRING ON JACK MANNING……. HE WOULD BE PERFECT FOR CHRISTIANA. I ALSO ADORE ANDREW, AS JACKI MANNING………

Although people, GH casting is looking for a REPLACEMENT for the role, which means African American!

Dominic Zamprogna Making A Return To General Hospital

After posting a photo from an empty dressing room, Dominic Zamprogna certainly had General Hospital fans interest piqued!  Turns out, Zamprogna is back shooting at the ABC daytime drama series for what it appears to be a short appearance and reprising his role as Dante Falconeri.

As fans know, Dominic departed GH in 2018, after 9 years in the role.  In the photo he posted on social media, Zamprogna is in one of GH’s temporary dressing rooms for the day.  His original dressing room was re-assigned to Josh Swickard (Chase), when Dom exited the show.

The last time viewers saw Dante was in the Sonny-centric episode; where Dante is the mobster and Sonny is by the book.

In current GH story, the character of Dante has been recently mentioned following his wife, Lulu (Emme Rylan) being stabbed by serial killer, Ryan Chamberlain (Jon Lindstrom).  Dante’s parents, Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) and Sonny (Maurice Benard) also discussed his whereabouts. Dante had gone undercover on a major case after leaving Port Charles.

From all reports, it seems that Dominic is making a short return, but it will be more than just a one-day stint.  So, stay tuned.

TONIGHT: GH’s Maurice Benard As John Gotti In Lifetime’s ‘Victoria Gotti: My Father’s Daughter’

Fans and colleagues of Maurice Benard (Sonny Corinthos) have been eagerly waiting to see the General Hospital star take on the role of famous mobster, John Gotti. Well, tonight (February 9th) is the night!  Make sure to watch the Daytime Emmy-winner in Victoria Gotti: My Father’s Daughter on Lifetime at 8pmEST/7CST.

In the log lines for the movie. it relates: “Executive produced by Victoria Gotti herself, the movie takes us deep into the world of what it was really like to grow up as the daughter of mob boss John Gotti, revealing the glamour, glitz and unique hardships of her world.  Sharing never-before-revealed stories about her life, Victoria (Chelsea Frei) tells of a sensitive child growing up with a beloved father (Maurice Benard) she worried about constantly; the tragedy of her younger brother’s death; and her turbulent romance, forbidden by her father, with the man who later became her husband.  Victoria had a front-row seat to a life the world became fascinated with, all while trying to reconcile the loving father she adored with a man the outside world was determined to bring down. . The film is based on Gotti’s book This Family of Mine: What It Was Like Growing Up Gotti.  Victoria Gotti will appear on camera narrating.

Benard spoke with ABC Soaps In Depth about taking on the role and wanting to get the performance just right, where he expressed: “That’s up to the audience to decide.  I played him like a real-life guy who’s loyal to his people and loves his family — and that’s kind of what the story is about. It’s through Victoria’s eyes and told with complete compassion.”

Photo: Lifetime

As to how playing Gotti compared to his role as Port Charles’ loveable mobster, Sonny Corinthos, Maurice added: “When I was shooting the role, I didn’t really know how different it was from Sonny. But my last day, I wrapped at about 1 in the morning in Canada, flew back and went straight to work as Sonny. I remember shooting the scene and thinking, ‘Wow, Sonny’s in about second gear, Gotti’s in about fourth or fifth gear!’ It’s two different energies.”

Check out the promo for tonight’s Lifetime Movie starring Maurice as John Gotti below, and the let us know if you will be watching, and if you caught it, what you thought of Maurice’s performance, and the movie via the comment section below.
