Corutesy/IMDB

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.

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.

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.

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… Read more »

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

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.

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!

Kristina Wagner Shares She’s Back On Contract at General Hospital

This past week, General Hospital fans were thrilled with the news that longtime fan favorite, Kristina Wagner (Felicia) was on her way back to the soap opera to tape new episodes.  However on Saturday, the actress shared even bigger news.  She is back on contract at the ABC daytime drama series.

Kristina revealed via her Instagram: “I’m pleased to announce I just finished my first work week on contract with General Hospital. The good people there have made it a well oiled machine. I’m so impressed with the way they navigate the Covid protocols. It’s not easy but we’ll worth it. We’ve got some fun storylines coming up. I’ve been thrown in the middle of a current storyline and I think Felicia’s part in it gives it some color. Stay tuned!”

Earlier in the week on Tuesday via Twitter, Kristina expressed: “Tomorrow I head back to work on General Hospital! Lucky me. I couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of that family once again. Here we go. More to come. Felicia Scorpio rides again.”

Wagner began her GH role as Felicia Cummings, the Aztec princess back in 1984 and has appeared on and off the show since then.

So what storyline do you think Felicia will get thrown into? Will she return to Port Charles to help Maxie (Kirsten Storms)?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Laura Wright and Kelly Thiebaud Deliver One-Two Punch as Britt & Carly Grieve the Loss of Jason

When General Hospital goes for the emotional jugular, it is very often top-notch daytime drama, and that was on full display through Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series in key scenes as the news of Jason’s ‘death’ hit Port Charles.

In the wake of Steve Burton’s (Ex-Jason) dismissal from the show for not adhering to the vaccine mandate, it did open up the story and provide for a huge fallout for those who loved the mob hitman.

In the end, it was Carly (Laura Wright) and Britt (Kelly Thiebaud), who seemingly felt the loss the hardest.  Initially, upon learning how Jason ‘died’ helping Britt locate her mother, Liesl (Kathleen Gati), a defiant Carly blamed Britt for Jason never coming home.

In Wednesday’s episode, we saw how Carly and Britt tried to cope with the knowledge that Jason was buried under a rubble in a cave, with no sign of life, or his body found.

Overwhelmed with grief, Carly heads to the footbridge to be close to the spirit of Jason and to mourn him as tears flow.  She is stunned to see Britt show up there, too.  Carly is surprised that Britt even knew about the bridge that Jason had rebuilt thank to a generous donation from him.  Britt tells Carly that she and Jason had a lot of time to talk while they were on the run.  After Carly explains that Jason was her person and had been her other half, Britt offers to leave. S he expresses that she thought coming to the bridge would make her feel closer to Jason.

Then, in a heartbreaking moment, Britt assures Carly that she blames herself for what happened to Jason and hates herself.  Then, Carly has a moment of clarity that Jason would want her to forgive Britt.  Generous thoughts never come naturally to Carly, but Jason always set her straight on how to handle life’s most difficult situations.

In the final moments of the episode, with both women in tears, Britt moves to the center of the bridge with her arm around Carly, after Carly tells her she doesn’t want her to go.  The two stand together bonded over the man they both loved.

These scenes were masterfully played by Laura Wright and Kelly Thiebaud. They were gut-wrenching, powerful, and sad all at the same time.  We think many viewers needed several hankies during these scenes.

So, what did you think of the Carly and Britt bridge scenes …. and the work of Laura and Kelly? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

General Hospital Has No Immediate Plans to Recast the Role of Jason Morgan Following Steve Burton’s Departure

According to a report from Variety, ABC’s General Hospital is not planning on recasting the role of Jason Morgan at this time, following the exit of Steve Burton.

The two-time Daytime Emmy winning star was let-go from the soap after not adhering to their Covid-19 vaccine mandate.

The mandate went into effect on November 1st and in story, the series wrote Burton out, but still left wiggle room for the character to return.

Jason was buried under a rubble when a cave collapsed on top of him, while he was trying to apprehend arch-villain, Peter August (Wes Ramsey).

In his exit announcement on Instagram, Burton did express: “Maybe one day if these mandates are lifted, I can return and finish my career as Jason Morgan.”  Steve had played the role of Jason since 1991, but with a four-year break at Y&R, before returning to the role in 2017.

Now whether down the line, GH does eventually recast Jason remains to be seen.

So, it looks like Jason will be off the canvas for awhile, and Port Charles will continue to grieve for him.

So, what are your thoughts? Should GH leave Jason off the canvas? Should they recast down the line?  Comment below.
