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.

The best news !!! he was good on OLTL.

I am very excited for his arrival on GH !

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?

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.

Scott (ATWT Fan)

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.

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.

Lialla

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.

Kay Martin

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.

Emma

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….

You read my mind. Time to end the air time for these useless characters.

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

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.

Steve

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.

Margherita

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 »

Portrayed by Steve Burton
Duration 2013–2017
First appearance January 29, 2013
Last appearance January 27, 2017
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.

Thanks so much for straightening me out. I didn’t realize there were two. I guess it was the Josh Kelley that I saw on the TV shows mentioned.

You have your Josh Kelly’s confused. Josh Kelly the singer is married to Katherine Heigle. Josh Kelly the actor and new GH cast member is single.

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.

Scott (ATWT Fan)

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.

Fox Announces Primetime Soap ‘Monarch’ On Fall Schedule

You remember the tawk of the multi-generational musical drama about America’s first family of country music that was supposed to air in January?  Well, eventually due to Covid-19, the plans for its debut got scrapped from a two-night premiere set for Sunday, January 30 as a midseason replacement and kicked back to the fall.

Now, Fox has confirmed that Monarch is indeed on their fall schedule during its annual Upfront presentation on Monday.

The soapy series stars Oscar winner, Susan Sarandon as the Queen of Country Music Dottie Cantrall Roman, and her husband Albie Roman played by country singer, Trace Adkins.

In story, Dottie and Albie have created a country music dynasty. But even though the Roman name is synonymous with authenticity, the very foundation of their success is a lie. And when their reign as country royalty is put in jeopardy, heir to the crown Nicky Roman played by Anna Friel, will stop at nothing to protect her family’s legacy, while ensuring her own quest for stardom.

No word yet from Fox on what night of the week Monarch will land on the full fall schedule.  Stay tuned.

So, glad that Monarch will finally makes it debut? Does it interest you … or sound like another Nashville mixed with Dallas retread? Comment below.

The CW Cancels ‘Dynasty’; Show Will End With Current Fifth Season

As some had suspected, with ailing ratings and virtually no promotion, the CW’s reboot of Dynasty has been canceled.  The primetime soap will end at the end of its current fifth season, meaning no season six as die-hard fans and the cast and crew had hoped for.

Dynasty has been a soap on steroids, with snappy dialog, over-the-top storylines, and some wonderful performances especially from series lead, Elizabeth Gillies (Fallon).  Elizabeth tweeted upon the news of the cancellation: “SO PROUD OF MY BEAUTIFUL DYNASTY FAMILY!!”

According to Deadline, the show had been kept in production partly because of the revenue it generated with its deal with Netflix.

The cast includes: Daniella Alonso as Cristal Carrington, Elaine Hendrix as Alexis Carrington Colby, Rafael de la Fuente as Sammy Jo Jones, Sam Underwood as Adam Carrington, Michael Michele as Dominique Deveraux, Robert Christopher Riley as Michael Culhane, Sam Adegoke as Jeff Colby, Maddison Brown as Kirby Anders, Adam Huber as Liam Ridley, Eliza Bennett as Amanda Carrington and Grant Show as Blake Carrington.

CW’s Dynasty was the reboot of the classic 80’s ABC primetime version, which aired from 1981-1989, with a modern twist to several of the characters and stories.

So, sad to know there will be no more Dynasty on the CW? Do you think the show could be shopped somewhere else? Comment below.
