Josh Kelly Joins the Cast of General Hospital

Photo: IMDB

In another casting coup, ABC’s General Hospital is bringing Josh Kelly (Ex-Cutter Wentworth, One Life to Live) to Port Charles.

According to Deadline, who broke the casting news, Kelly will join the ABC daytime drama series later this month as a series regular in a role that is said to impact the lives of Sam (Kelly Monaco), Dante (Dominic Zamprogna), and Britt (Kelly Thiebaud), but being kept secret for now.

Since leaving OLTL, Kelly has appeared in numerous primetime series, including Lifetime’s UnReal, as well as Grey’s Anatomy, Station 19, What/If, Army Wives, Circle of Eight and Hallmark’s Christmas Bells are Ringing, plus in the motion picture franchise of The Transformers.

Could it be possible that Kelly is a recast Jason Morgan, if the character will have impact on Sam, Dante, and Britt as the casting news teases, or someone else from their past? Could he be Llanview’s Cutter Wentworth come to Port Charles?

So, what do you think of Josh coming to GH? Who do you think he will play … a new character, a recast? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Sources have already revealed he is portraying a new character, likely to due with a Dante storyline, heading into June.

He’s 10 years too young to play a recast Jason. Based on the Billy Miller experience, they won’t do try to hay day Jason needed plastic surgery. Besides, everyone knows that if/when Jason comes back, it would be a Carly story (like the other half currently playing out).

He’s probably an entirely new character, but if they reach down in GH history…

Josh looks like he could be Kin Shriner’s son. Perhaps, a resurrected Logan?

I doubt he’s a recast Lucky or Ethan.

Or, he brings Cutter over with the reveal that Alex Olanov and Olivia Jerome are the same woman?

Steve, I meant to reply sooner. Glad you mentioned Logan. I’m not sure I remember all of Scottie’s offspring. I remember Karen, Serena, Logan, and Franco. Am I forgetting anyone?!?!

Well, the casting folks certainly have a type: bland Michael; bland Drew; bland Jason; bland Dex; bland Brando; bland Jax..etc. I didn’t like Mr. Kelly on OLTL so I’m not happy about this. But maybe the character will be interesting. Tee-Hee.

Wow bland? I get it but what are you looking for

He’s not going to be Jason. I think he’s going to be part of the Dante/Sam storyline kicking up in June, and be Britt’s new love interest.

I wouldn’t be surprised if it wasn’t a second Drew Cain. He certainly will replace that Jason wannabe Sonny just hired. For real.

Yeah I don’t see someone else being as good or as loyal to Sunny as Jason was

Whoa. He has charisma for sure, and was entertaining on OLTL. (Could he bring Gina Tognoni with him to GH?) Interesting if they dare to recast Jason already. I still maintain the show is fine without Jason. But I freely admit I may be in the minority on that opinion.

Yoi most definitely are in the minrity. Love Jason any i miss him so much. I feel the show is not the same without him.

I agree. I didn’t want a recast of Jason at first but I really miss the character. So if Steve’s not coming back I think Josh K would be a good one.

I agree I love Jason.and I use to watch (oltl) But I don’t remember the him on the show

Recast Heather Webber, with Gina Tognoni She would be terrific in the role. Gina is a wonderful actress.

Soaphound
Guest

Emma, yes Gina is wonderful but to hire her they’d need to let go of possibly two or three others, like Esme, Curtis’ dad, Aunt Stella, T.J., Drew. Wait, let’s think about this….

What’s wrong with Drew now? I admit i loved Billy miller but Cameron is doing a good job.

Lialla, I’m really liking Drew and glad he’s not trying to be a Jason sub for Carly.

Soaphound
Guest
Soaphound

Yes, I’ll always miss Billy, but it’s nice to have a genuinely nice, decent guy like Drew on the show, even though the character is basically unnecessary. And how about Sonny’s horrific, joy-destroying, life-sucking stepson Michael: “I’m gonna destroy Sonny and leave him with nothin’.” I had a good chuckle over that one! In Sonny’s own words, “Bring it on, little man.”

Drew is an affable guy but yes, useless. He reminds me of a motivational speaker. I fully expect him to arrange a walk though fire exercise on the Port Charles Beach.

Gina as Heather? That’s quite a de-SORAS concept as Gina is younger than both Roger Howarth and Scott Reeves (who both played Heather’s sons). She’s not coming anytime soon, but Gina would be a good Sarah Webber.

I think you may mean Sarah Webber – Elizabeth’s sister. And yes, I would LOVE to see Gina back on the soap canvas, especially since Y and R totally messed up.

They couldn’t possibly be stupid enough to attempt another failed Jason recast, so let’s dismiss that ridiculous idea right off the top. Another failed Lucky Spencer recast would be just as dumb, but slightly more probable at least. First Lucky recast was horrible. Greg Vaughn….. he had a good character, but that character never really seemed like Lucky, so…. mixed results there. JJ doesn’t seem to want to come back, unfortunately, but the character is seriously needed, as are the rest of the Spencer family. The only thing dumber than a poor recast would be ANY appearance of an OLTL… Read more »

Steve walked out of GH-
I didn’t miss Jason for those 4 years.
I’m not missing him now
If Jason is recast- well done.
What GH/ABC did to Billy Miller
because Steve wanting back in is
unforgivable.

I felt bad for Greg when that happened, though as I said, the character he played on GH never really seemed like Lucky Spencer to me. Practically the next day, I started posting on all the soap boards that existed at the time that he would be the perfect Eric Brady recast for Days. It took them a little while to make it happen, but they listened to the Devil, for once. He’s come & gone from Salem a few times since then, but has definitely become the definitive Eric in the process. Just as JJ is the definitive Lucky,… Read more »

They did wrong for Billy by not writing for the Drew character after creating him. To add insult to injury, the only attempt they had at playing out even the smallest pieces of Drew’s backstory were played out by a brain-mapped Frodd, which was just wrong in 666 different ways.

I do wish he had returned as Drew… and not the guy from AMC (a show that never aired in Hell)

Hi–
Steve First appearance on Y$R January 29, 2013
but- you are correct he was gone from GH in 2012–
Now, that Steve is gone that opens up for
new or returning characters because—
Steve was being paid Big $$$$ now
that money can go to others 🙂

In reality, Steve Burton should have been cast as Drew Cain. That would have provided more complex storytelling than retconning Billy Miller’s casting. Carly, Kim, Sam & Sonny, not to mention their children, seeing the face of Jason every single day, but he’s NOT Jason. And now Jason has this new face and attitude? The story told itself, but everyone wanted to save to Burton’s rehiring.

^^^ “…poor recast would be ANY appearance of an OLTL character on GH. That was a bad move 10 years ago. It would be even worse now. Let it go, Frank…… ” I DON”T CARE WHAT any one says…it’s the truth, watch Roger Howarth and Michael Easton after all these years.. at least with Josh Kelly… we have tantalize up front beating.. he’s always had solid acting and the balls to turn

I DO AGREE … bring back from the dead.. cause Satan aid it… Nathan should .. LIVE… Ryan Paevey

END this dream

Margherita
Guest

Josh Kelly definitely looks like he could be Nathan though I don’t see how that impacts the Sam and Dante storyline unless it’s another unknown identity situation of amnesia, but would work for Britt, Nina, Leisl, and of course Maxie. I’m not liking Maxie and Austin together, and Roger doesn’t seem to like his newest character portrayal either. I really enjoyed Roger as Paul Ryan on As the World Turns. He’s being wasted at GH. Are they bringing him back to Elizabeth? The romantic pairings of the Gen X cast members who now all have children who are teens/young adults… Read more »

I think I’ll like whomever he plays. WOuld love him as a love interest for Britt. I’ve liked him for years on various shows, i.e Greys Anatomy and Station 19. Also love the fact that he’s been married for years to one of my favorite actresses, Katherine Heigl. Good luck Josh. Gosh, when I first saw his photo, he reminded me of Eric Martsolf, the eyes maybe.

Michael (not Fairman)

That’s a different Josh Kelly, Violet (and I think he may spell his last name , with a second ). This one was dating Bethany Joie Lenz (one of the Michelles on Guiding Light in the late 90s/early 2000s) last I read or heard anything.

Agree with you Katherine Heigl; I have always liked her.

I read in a spoiler that Cameron Mathison had a bout with cancer and only agreed to portray Drew temporarily. He may be the “new” Drew. He was really good on OLTL, so this will be interesting.

He won’t be Drew. He is a new character; Cameron Mathison’s cancer battle has come and past several years ago.

We will just have to see. Regarding recasts, I’d rather have new actors in the roles rather then deaths to be corrected later or holes in stories because someone isn’t there. Yes, we have favorites but in continuing daytime drama, characters too considerations. I find stores involving Laura, for example, without her children having presence.

Patrick

that’s why i’m truly accepting of Martin and laura.. they have such an easy rapport… tickled… beaming.. and just glad that laura doesn’t have to end her scenes in a “confused” state.. this is all right up Michael E.

At first I thought maybe a Jax. Joslin could use daddy in the picture with the whole drama there.
But that has nothing to do with the 3 named that his character affects.
He is definitely better eye candy than the current dex if he’s going to play sonny’s next grunt. What a lame casting.

The one character not mentioned, but Josh’s style would be ideal for is Dillon. He can pull off the quirkiness that Scott Clifton brought to the role. It would undo the de-SORASing that happened with Robert Palmer Watkins.

Of course this won’t happen since the Qs are not part of the characters he is scheduled to interact with.

Yeah, I hear ya. Between the newbies, the ridiculous amount of temp-hires, and the oversaturation of all things Nina, I think Frank Valentini is in some sort of a sick bet with his old pal ReRon as to see who can get their show cancelled faster.

ReRon, for his part, is losing legacy characters on Days faster than you can shake a demon’s tail…. most recently one through a brutal murder… with the most two likely suspects being idiotic characters who should have both been long gone by now.

Who wins the bet?? Damned sure ain’t the fans of either show.

Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes OUT at ABC and ‘GMA3’

It’s not ending well for Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes. The former GMA3 co-hosts, who had their affair come to light publicly, have been let go by ABC after a lengthy mediation session on Thursday.

Now, the network has severed all ties with Robach and Holmes and they will receive payouts of their contracts.

According to TMZ: the long mediation session was “extremely contentious,” with ABC reps accusing both Amy and T.J. of various forms of misconduct, which one source characterized as “a witch hunt.”

They go on detail that Amy and T.J were told that they did not handle their romance appropriately by waiting too long to disclose it to ABC executives.

ABC expressed that their “behavior on set” was “uncomfortable” for some ABC staff.

Page Six is also reporting that their source shared from the talks, that unless ABC reaches a satisfactory departure agreement with both Amy and T.J., they would both be looking at filing lawsuits against the network.

In additional accusations, ABC said alcohol had been found in Robach’s dressing room.  However, that was disputed as ABC executives had gifted liquor bottles to Robach and other on-air ABC talent. Robach was also accused of showing up “drunk” to work after attending the College Football National Championship last year.  Amy claims she was just tired.

So, what do you think of Robach and Holmes being given the hook by ABC and being show the front door? Comment below.

Alec Baldwin to Face Involuntary Manslaughter Charges in ‘Rust’ Shooting of Halyna Hutchins

Charges were announced today by Santa Fe District Attorney, Mary Carmack-Altwies in the shooting on the set of the film, Rust fatally killing director Halyna Hutchins.

Alec Baldwin (ex-The Doctor and Knots Landing) has been charged with involuntary manslaughter along with the film’s armorer,  Hannah Gutierrez Reed.

The D.A. outlined why the deadly on-set shooting could result in criminal charges regardless of whether it was an accident.  In a statement, she shared: “After a thorough review of the evidence and the laws of the state of New Mexico, I have determined that there is sufficient evidence to file criminal charges against Alec Baldwin and other members of the Rust film crew. On my watch, no one is above the law, and everyone deserves justice.

In charges set to be filed by the end of January, Baldwin and Gutierrez-Reed will each be charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter in Hutchins’ death.

Baldwin’s attorney, Luke Nikas, said this about the charges: “This decision distorts Halyna Hutchins’ tragic death and represents a terrible miscarriage of justice. Mr. Baldwin had no reason to believe there was a live bullet in the gun – or anywhere on the movie set. He relied on the professionals with whom he worked, who assured him the gun did not have live rounds. We will fight these charges, and we will win.”

Andrea Reeb, the special prosecutor for the case said: “If any one of these three people: Alec Baldwin, Hannah Gutierrez Reed, or David Halls (assistant director, Rust) had done their job, Halyna Hutchins would be alive today. It’s that simple.  The evidence clearly shows a pattern of criminal disregard for safety on the ‘Rust’ film set. In New Mexico, there is no room for film sets that don’t take our state’s commitment to gun safety and public safety seriously.”

What do you think about the charges levied on Alec Baldwin? Comment below.
