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.

    • vvenababy2

      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.

  9. 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!

    • 1loveabcsoaps

      August 1, 2012 at 4:26 pm

      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!

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?

Friday night was a good night for daytime!  With its first foray back on to network television since 2011, the Daytime Emmy kudofest, while for the first time held this year virtually, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, scored very well in its timeslot.

The CBS broadcast averaged 3.1 million total viewers and a 0.3 demo rating.  That is way up from the last time viewers saw the award show on TV when it was on cable network POP TV back in 2015 with just over 900,000 viewers for its initial broadcast.

According to TV Insider report: The first hour of the Emmys garnered 3.3 million viewers to top the hour by edging out a rerun on ABC”s Shark Tank, and then slipped to second place for the second hour with 2.8 million viewers.

These were strong numbers for Friday night, and hopefully CBS and the other major networks will now continue this, and serve up the Daytime Emmy Awards moving forward.

The ladies of CBS’s The Talk hosted the event; each virtually from their homes, in an event filled with at-home acceptance speeches and presenters, and clip packages. The show was produced by NATAS and Associated Television International
