While Ingo Rademacher has already wrapped his visit back to Port Charles, viewers of the ABC soap opera will begin to see new episodes featuring the star tomorrow on the Monday, August 1st episode of the long-running daytime drama series.

In story, Jax return figures into the mystery of just who is Josslyn’s kidney donor, something that his ex-wife Carly (Laura Wright) has been trying to unravel.  Does Jax have the answers? Does he hold some clues? Can he direct Carly in the right direction, or will he try to block her from investigating the truth?  Obviously, if that is the case that would put Jax once again pitted against his long-time rival Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard).  For Sonny has been helping Carly get to the bottom of it.

ABC released a short promo over the weekend to usher in the return of Ingo as Jasper Jacks,. You can watch it after the jump. Then weigh-in: Do you think Jax holds intel that will reveal the truth of Josslyn’s kidney donor … or … is he in the dark like everyone else seems to be? Comment below!

He’s so handsome !

Yes he is..

Would somebody tell me what is with all these good looking men with these awful haircuts? Or am I just out of touch I feel like half the men on daytime have a three year old cutting their hair. That being said I have always liked the character of Jax.

I guess if you are good looking you can do what you want! I remember David Beckham had some kind of Mohawk thing going on and looked like a goof BUT a handsome goof!

k/kay, please accept my profound thank you for saying it also. I’ve been complaining about this for ages. And it’s a cross-soap problem. These guys with great hair, like Ingo R., Billy Miller, Chad Duell, Casey Moss, all have these “practice day at the local cosmetology school ” chop jobs. What gives? I want hair I can fantasize about, not want to fix with a pair of shears! Anyway, thanks for the shout out, k/kay!

Oh, I hear you, Soaphound!!!! There’s nothing like a well-coiffed (and finely dressed!) man to grab my attention!!!! I cannot imagine not being able to run my fingers though a guy’s hair…..dealing with those cropped cuts are the equivalent to rubbing your face up against razor stubble….ugh! What can I say? I’ve always gone for the smooth and groomed “metrosexual” types who are as into beauty products as I am…even if they don’t always admit it without a bit of prodding! LOL. (You mentioned Robert Redford….yes! He was sheer perfection in “The Way We Were!” Or even the original Thorne and Ridge on the early days of B&B….I loved their respective styles! Soaps used to be the absolute best when it came to male eye candy! Now? Not so much for me…..I find that European tv shows—British, Scandinavian, French, Italian….—give me the fix I’m craving!!!!) Oh, aren’t we sooo bad!

I miss the blond locks Jax used to sport. But maybe with him living in Hawaii and water sports there, the shorter hair is just easier…if this is what you are talking about.

Me too, Rose!!! Have you ever noticed that when any formerly blond guy goes dark he somehow loses his looks??? There’s just something about that “golden boy” look that is soooo enticing! LOL….

Oh, yes, Rose…..I hear you about those hipster beards, not to mention, “manbuns,” pajama boy wardrobes…really anything that captures the current “Casual Friday” techie ethos that has been unleashed upon the public!!!! (And ditto for multiple tats and body piercings, too…..) I grew up in an age when the guys were just as, if not more often, fussy about their hair and attire than the girls….they certainly spent the time and money on clothes, and hair styling products, and it showed!!!! I’ll often be channel chasing and come upon a tv show or movie from the ’80’s or maybe even early pre-grunge ’90’s and I cannot get over how clean, well-dressed and presentable people looked….in comparison, today it often seems that half the population considers basic hygiene to be “optional!” As for “Nurse Amy II” she gives me the willies….there is definitely a sinister vibe radiating from beneath her “everywoman” exterior…..whether it’s the evil soul of a killer, I cannot be say, but surely something is amiss with her. From the beginning, I found her supposed presence as an “homage” to the late Shell Kepler’s character to be a bit of a backhanded compliment, since her Amy—whilst being a really intrusive, and often annoying, busybody—never truly meant harm to anyone…she simply couldn’t contain her overwhelming curiosity about others’ lives, usually to the point of distraction during her shifts at the “Nurses’ Station!”

Thank you, k/kay!!! The cropped hair look on men has been a real bugaboo of mine for a long, long awhile….both onscreen and in real life!!! Not only can I not stand it, but I just don’t get it, especially on young guys. It’s quite one thing when the oldsters think this type of tonsorial subterfuge camouflages the fact their hair is thinning—and by the way, it doesn’t!!!!!—- but for teenagers and other youthful males, I say, if you’ve got it, flaunt it, and enjoy it whilst you can!!!

Not that it applies here, but I think all the facial hair, especially bushy, longer beards, has gotten a little out of hand. There are exceptions when they are worn well and neat…like our “friend” Carlos/Joe?

Shay…P.S. They really have made Nurse Amy beyond irritating right from the beginning. I don’t remember the original Amy that well, but I don’t think she was ever such a mouthy, busybody.

Shay, you’re awesome! Absolutely! Let’s start a campaign to bring back one of nature’s wonders: great hair. Starting with GH’ERS Ingo, Billy, Chad, then let’s head over to DAYS. At least Y&R lets Greg R. & Joshua M leave the longer locks. Think back to our great male idols…didn’t many of them have great hair? Robert Redford, James Dean, Brad Pitt, Warren Beatty, today’s Jeremy Renner. There’s a pattern.

Agreed, Shay.
Worst hair: Morgan–GH; Jax–GH; Billy–Y&R.
Now, some men look luscious in cropped hair….ummm; say, Curtis?
Wasn’t there a name for that in the 40’s-50’s era? Brush cut? Or is this new trend the ‘army’ look?
But, personally, I like longer hair on guys…I don’t even mind shoulder-length.
The same comments have been posted on Y&R. I know that the 30’s revival ( on men’s styles) is en vogue, as we speak. Nick Newman (Y&R) presently sports such style. He’s another hottie.

Ahh, yes! Nurse Amy. I had actually googled the ‘original’ GH Amy. I think I saw her on a couple of THREE’S COMPANY reruns.
But, this girl’s personality is as achromatic as the color gray. What goes on in that mind of hers?
Rose called it right; nosy. But, is there a reason for her prying into every aspect of GH, including patients and staff? As Gran says; ‘What gives’? But, this meddling is going to give her away….if she is the killer.
Funny how she is always at the ready to throw suspicion elsewhere….away from her. At the same time, she is omnipresent.

I would like Jax to date Kristina and watch the grease drip out of Sonny’s hair!

i think he knows a few things but he’ll fight to keep Carly from finding out so that this deepens the hatred Sonny and Jax have for each other. Gotta make this as juicy as possible because Ingo is back for a short amount of time I’m sure.

I think Jax knows exactly who the kidney donor is.
Let’s just hope Joss doesn’t end up in hospital…not safe there.
It’s Amy….the nurse from hell. She is everywhere, anytime, everytime. She’s the psycho.
Am I barking up the wrong tree?

Hahaha—it would be the best twist in a long time if the writers went there since she is supposed to be modeled after Amy Vining the ditzy nurse from the Luke and Laura heyday.

Nope, CeeCeeGirl…..I posited the same notion about that insufferable Nurse Amy….what’s her beef with GH???? It had better be a good explanation!!!!

I!m starting to think it’s Amy too CeeCee. She’s a character no one cares about so it wouldn’t be a loss. I know you weren’t viewing when the original Amy Vining was on years ago, but she was a beloved little busybody nurse…Laura’s sister (though not biological). Whenever they showed the nurses station there was Amy, listening in and spreading the word, lol…but she was GH “family.”

When this Amy suddenly appeared it seems like the writers were trying to recreate that character in a similar way, complete with name. Given that she!s barely on, has no connections or interactions with anyone they either brought her on to throw us off the trail and think it was Dr. Maze, cause Elizabeth to mistrust Franco…or maybe they changed gears and made her the culprit when they realized they had nowhere to go with her.

Or, maybe we’re both wrong! 🙂 we shall see… (Loving Franco and Liz.)

Oh! Lol…just realized we’re talking about the kidney caper!!! So, actually, I don’t agree! I think Amy’s the hospital killer…but wait! (Free associating…) maybe she’s killing people and somehow they’re all on a kidney doner list…or in another scenario their kidneys are being removed on the autopsy table!

Though Jax wouldn’t be involved in that…he’s a “hero” not a villain in our GH world…

@Rebecca 1.
LOL. that’s what I meant. Joss better not end up in hospital for any kidney issue….Amy will do her in. I believe she’s the serial killer. I want to smack her!!

Celia, we need to rid this show of the problem known as Nurse Amy. Honestly, I’ve known horse flies that were less annoying! If she’s not the killer, let’s hope she becomes a victim. And the worst part is Miss Jordan will now pursue Franco with the same myopia she has for Jason. Maybe she can establish a rotating warrant — arrest Jason on the first week of the month, Franco the second, and on and on until Anna returns and kicks her snarky butt out of her job!

Hey, CeeCeeGirl! I do believe something is awry with Nurse Amy….it seems she should have another actual purpose to her presence than to just be annoying beyond distraction! Whilst I can definitely envision her sneaky demeanor as being indicative of a serial killer’s behavior, it never occurred to me that she might have something to do with the kidney storyline….hmmmmm???? Could there be a Jacks link to her, as in an illegitimate sister/daughter to Jerry or Jax???? That could have made her a compatible donor for Joss. (Then again, with her oddly psychotic-seeming tendencies, she could be yet another Heather Webber spawn! Just kidding…..I think! LOL…..) Whatever her connection to the GH canvas, it ain’t an upstanding one, that’s for sure! As for our discussion of men’s hairstyles, I agree with your take on liking some length, not to mention, effort required for whatever look they choose! (Definitely clean and well-kempt!) Since I watch a lot of period movies and tv shows, I see many different looks from various eras that appeal to me….it’s not any single cut, per se, but just a certain quality that’s both classic and meticulous! (I know you know what I’m saying!!!!!) However, what I simply cannot abide are those nasty buzzed to the scalp looks that scream militant—not military—-in my opinion. I’ve known enough guys from both the service and academies that have had that clean-cut, All-American, man in a uniform thing going….and what I’m speaking against ain’t that!!!!

BTW C, the original Amy used to act like Maxie when Maxie was younger. A good heart who always flubbed things up! Nurse Amy worked in the hospital and so did a young Maxie I believe as a candy striper? But anyway, their ears and mouth would often get them in trouble but they were never vicious. This new Amy is a viper! .

he knows he powerful man and sexy, I like him with Nina

THAT would be explosive!

Good call!

Ahh, luisa…. in my opinion Nina and Curtis would combust. I feel the electricity in the air when these two are close to each other.Two sexy beings. Imagine if they touch. Caramba!!
Valerie is too mousy….too inconsequential; too tamed for him. And, he is too much man for her.
Nina is so alluring and he is so sexy; so good-looking; sooo much man….he oozes with manly ‘musk’.
Curtis has striking facial features…his profile perfectly sculpted.

They have tried everybody opposite Stafford they all feel forced these days she is trying to hard chemistry just has to happen you can’t force it.

You’re on again, Celia. LOVE Nina & Curtis together. And if Franco can move on that quickly, he doesn’t deserve her. And Valerie? Let’s run her outta town on the same rail as Nurse Amy, Aaron, Jordan, T. J., Rachel, Parker, Andre, and toss in Julian (and his hairdo meant for a much younger man) while we’re…tossing.

@Soaphound.
I am so glad someone else sees the potential between Nina and Curtis, my friend.
I must say, though, Nina disappointed me somewhat, yesterday. I wonder why TPTB are going this way ?
Poor Nina must feel so dejected and rejected to attach herself to a man who pays her the slightest attention.
But, she can certainly turn it on….She tumbled way too low with Valentin, a complete stranger. Now, I have to worry about her getting an STD. LOL. Later.

@K/Kay.
I know, Kay, I know. You’re right. Will the right guy ever suit Nina to satisfaction? TPTB better not turn her into a you-know-what.
If only Jeff Branson (Ronan; Y&R), as a new character, would walk into Nina’s life….all would be well with me. They certainly had it going on Y&R. ” I felt the earth move under my feet”.

gee – i remember when jax first started on gh – wow!

Hes was with Sam Mcall

Such gorgeous eyes.

That’s about it.

Oh no CeeCee..Google Jax (Ingo Rademacher) 1996…around there…when he first appeared on GH. He was THE Nathan and Griffin. Still very good-looking but back in the day???? Unbelievably stunning!

I’ve always liked Jax, since the ’90’s; however, I could care less for the new Joss and this storyline. Did anyone else find it ridiculous that the first kidney transplant prospect that Carly met, she was ready to except-without even a medical test to confirm? I just think it’s a dumb storyline-another storyline to introduce some cartoonish plot that has to do with the Cassadines or Jerry Jax.

So, Jax and Finn know each other! Wow. Coincidence? Well, Finn did do extensive travel ……the wilds of down-under?
Doesn’t Roxie look different? The original ‘actress’, LOL, was greener and larger. I guess she broke up with Finn.

I erred…too ahead of myself. Finn and Jax are so at ease with each other, at first meeting, I got the impression the knew each other.

They don’t know each other. They met for the first time at the metro court on Monday’s episode.

Get him back……put him with Elizabeth……Ingo & Rebecca have great chemistry. They attempted a story w them when she was his surrogate…….Just a suggestion

Ingo doesn’t want to come back full time…he lives with his family in Hawaii.

ive actually heard him say on occassion that if the show offered him full time he would move his family back. however, the show rejected him years ago, and that was why he moved away. i think he knows he still has some years in him left and is willing to go back full time if asked.

I think you’re right jlov. After I posted that I read he said he wouldn’t close the door to coming back to GH…or even another soap…

I’m happy for the many Jax fans. It’s always fun when an old favorite returns. I don’t really dislike him, but yesterday’s encounter with Dr. Finn is a classic example of what bothers me about him. He just meets the guy and new immediately starts barking orders at him. It’s the same arrogance he displays way too often for me. Unless it’s about St. Brenda, who can do no wrong. But, live and let live. I hope the fans enjoy his return. I’ll just sit here and wait for the return of Billy Miller’s hair.

Lol! I’m waiting for Dr. Monroe’s! Looks like he just cut it again! Gorgeous, silky black locks…what is he thinking!!!

Oh, Rebecca, I’m afraid some goofball producer is instituting this “military” look. It just doesn’t work on most men. And if they wanna cut somebody’s hair, have a whack at Franco. He looks like a refugee from the 60s. Fortunately, nothing they can do can make Griffin anything but stunning. Keep your fingers crossed that the shears have been retired for the rest of summer!

I would love for Jax (Ingo) to be back. However I don’t think Becky or Ingo would not want to be paired.

Eva LaRue Makes Her ‘General Hospital’ Debut: What Were Your First Impressions of Natalia Rogers-Ramirez?

On the Monday, February 26th episode of General Hospital, former All My Children favorite, Eva LaRue (ex-Maria Santos), made her first appearance in her new recurring role of Blaze’s (Jacqueline Grace Lopez) mother, Natalia Rogers-Ramirez.

In key scenes, as Kristina (Kate Mansi) and Blaze are happy after spending the night together, Kristina is in for a shock when she is still in bed and the door opens and Blaze’s mother, Natalia strolls in seemingly oblivious to walked she just walked in.

Natalia announces, “Alison, Mommy’s here!” Then, Natalia looks over and sees Kristina in bed and both women are a bit startled. Kristina introduces herself to “Mrs. Rogers-Ramirez.” However, Natalia corrects her and says it’s “Miss.”

Next, Blaze walks into the room still in her robe. She is very shocked that her mother arrived in Port Charles much earlier than expected. Natalia wants an explanation of just what she walked in on. It is then, Kristina concocts a story and explains they had a girls’ night, and it got late so Alison let her crash.

Natalia seems to buy into Kristina’s lies. Blaze starts to argue with her mother over the non-vegan sandals her mother brought her from Puerto Rico and her grandmother’s pudding, which she has told her in the past she dislikes. Kristina pipes in that the reason Alison doesn’t like it, is because of the texture and the same goes for avocado and flan. Natalia says she thinks she knows her own daughter.

Photo: ABC

Then, Blaze gets more upset and asks Kristina to stay and be by her side. Blaze announces that she and Kristina are more than just friends. We already know that Natalia is from a very conservative background, so we anticipate on tomorrow’s episode of GH, she won’t approve finding out her daughter is gay. Stay-tuned.

So, were you happy to see Eva LaRue back on daytime and now on General Hospital? What were you first impressions of her new character Natalia Rogers-Ramirez? Share your thoughts in the comment section, but first, check out the scenes from her arrival below,

General Hospital’s William Lipton to Star in Music Drama Series ‘The Runarounds’ From ‘Outer Banks’ Creators

This sounds like a perfect starring vehicle for the multi-talented William Lipton (Cameron Webber), who recently made a brief return to General Hospital for his best friend, Spencer Cassadine’s (the exited Nicholas Chavez) gravesite memorial service.

Now comes word that Lipton is set to star in a new series in the works entitled The Runarounds. If that name sounds familiar, it’s because The Runarounds is the name of the band seen in season three of Netflix’s popular series, Outer Banks. 

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Amazon has given the green light to an eight-episode, straight-to-series order for The Runarounds which premise features the story of a post-high school band as they try to make it big.

The fictional drama is inspired by the real life band of the same name and will star its group’s members: William Lipton, Axel Ellis, Jeremy Yun, Zendé Murdock and Jesse Golliher.

The Runarounds will be set and film in Wilmington, North Carolina, where Outer Banks was also shot. Skydance Television is the studio behind the series. Outer Banks creators Josh Pate, Joshua Pate, and Shannon Burke will bring this project to life.

Lipton took to his Instagram on Monday, once the news of the series was revealed, expressing, “Where are we going, fellas? To the top, Johnny!” Immediately GH co-stars past and present shared their congratulations to William including: Sydney Mikayla (ex-Trina Robinson) and Enzo De Angelis, who plays Lipton’s brother, Aiden on GH.

 

In a statement, Vernon Sanders, head of television at Amazon MGM Studios, expressed: “When we first met with Jonas and Skydance about The Runarounds, it was immediately clear that they brought us a special show featuring an incredibly talented cast and real-life band. We are very much looking forward to sharing the exhilarating journey of The Runarounds with our global Prime Video customers.”

The Runarounds were actually formed as a band back in 2021, when Jonas Pate issued a casting call looking for a group to appear on Outer Banks. The group first performed together when they played for Pate ahead of appearing in season three after being selected from a more than 5,000 musicians who responded to the call.

No word yet on when The Runarounds will be released.

So, excited for this opportunity for William Lipton to star in this music drama? Hope he returns to GH down the line? Comment below.
