Josh Kelly Makes His General Hospital Debut: What Are Your First Impressions of Cody?

Photo: ABC

After parachuting on to General Hospital on Wednesday’s cliffhanger, on Thursday during the pick-up of the action, we learn that the man that landed in the pool and knocked over a drunken Britt (Kelly Thiebaud) was none other than “Cody”; as viewers welcomed former One Life to Live favorite Josh Kelly (Ex-Cutter Wentworth) to Port Charles.

In story, Britt wants the parachuter arrested and tells Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) who is present at the social mingle party to do so.  However, the man, Cody, looks at Dante and clearly they know each other from the past.  To try to calm things down, Dante hand-cuffs Cody.

Later in the episode as Britt laments about Cody – clearly the two have an attraction to one another – Sam (Kelly Monaco), Dante, and Cody are now at Charlie’s sharing drinks.

Cody reveals he really thought that Dante was taking him into police custody, and thanks him for getting him a change of shirt and out of the party. As the three chat, Dante informs Sam that this is his childhood friend, Cody Bell.

It is clear there are some things from the past that Dante might not be too proud of when Cody adds, “And got in a lot of trouble with.”

So, what do you think of a Cody/Britt potential romance? Excited to see Josh on GH? What do you think went down in the past between Cody and Dante? Share your thoughts in the comment section below. But first, check out these scenes from Cody’s entrance!

wouldn’t he also know Brooklyn ? didn’t they grow up in the same neighborhood? first impression, don’t really know yet, just glad he’s not the Jason character like some people were speculating, stone cold can be stone boring so I happy Jason isn’t back yet. I know eventually he’ll pop up.

The writers tend to be selective with Brooklyn’s past. It would make sense for her to know Cody, but they could explain it that he and Dante were friends during that period when BLQ and Lois moved back to PC in the early 2000s.

Exactly! There have been repeated references over the years about how close Dante & Brooklynn were back in Bensonhurst, and now this guy shows up in town and she doesn’t know him at all?

Major plot hole brain fart from the writers! Maybe if they spent less time throwing the entire last 30 years of GH under the bus to prop Parasite Nina & the newbie of the week, and a little more time with the actual history of the show, they wouldn’t miss details like that.

Satan…Speaking of Dante, has anyone heard about Lulu lately? Perfect time for her to make her appearance back into Port Charles and add a little more confusion. Did she know about Cody?

Satan
Guest

One would hope Lulu will be back soon, but the Valentini regime seems to be virulently anti-Spencer. Aside from the rarely seen Bobbie, the only person currently on canvas using the Spencer name is Spencer Cassadine… who’s not a Spencer at all. They took the name away from Liz’s kids. And while Lucky wasn’t Cam or Jake’s bio-dad, he was their father of record, legally and otherwise, until the short-lived Garin Wolf regime turned him into a pill-popping crybaby, followed by the sick agenda of Valentini & ReRon to replace him with the serial killer who literally kidnapped Aiden when… Read more »

While not impressed or excited by his entrance to GH, too early for how I feel about Cody. But I don’t like how the writers have made Britt look recently about trying to find a love interest. Or being pressured into it. And surely her performance at the pool fund raiser. Not the Britt I was starting to really like.

Certainly agree with you.Didn’t impress me and I sure hope he’s not going to cause trouble with Dante and Sam. He and Britt, was ready to call her Britch the other day will probably get together, though it’s obvious she’s still thinking of Jason.

Nope, didn’t like him before and thought his first day here a disaster. To each his own, of course. His beard is unkempt, his stocky build doesn’t mesh with Britt, his attitude seems arrogant…just not my idea of a leading man. Sorry but you asked.

Shari

Just wanted to take off on the stocky build reference which was quite kind. Josh Kelly should always wear a shirt and that’s all I’m going to say. I’m not commenting on weight just chest size.

Well I’m not sorry to agree with you. You sure summed him up good!

Soaphound…Beside his first day being a disaster his stunt of parachuting into the pool was downright dangerous. Whoever hired him to do it should be fired and Cody arrested. What got me was the nonchalance of everyone around the pool including Dante. Britt could have been really hurt.

He is just what we need to bring life to the show..Brit needs some fun and happiness. He is super likeable. Want to see more of him.

I think Cody is a waste of airtime that could be given to, oh, say, Anna, Valentin, Felicia, Laura, Ava, to name a few. The GH cast is way too big already without adding more. There are at least two men (Drew and Austin) that could work with Britt. Why did we need to add more people? Didn’t we just add Dex last month, and where is he?

Lynne

He says he’s not staying, but I think he will and I feel he might be trouble – possibly for Dante and for Britt!!

Well, Josh Kelly is on contract, so Cody will stick around. With the last name of Bell, internet talk speculates he is Katherine Bell’s unmentioned, never son, perhaps fathered by Mac. Plays with the timeline a bit, but could possibly work.

Did not know Katherine Bell so Googled her and she sure played the field in P.C, seems like she didn’t miss one male in town. Reminds me of Y&R Diane Jenkins and am very surprised at Mary Beth Evans playing the part, so used to her goody two shoes on Days.

Despite her questionable morals, Katherine was rather a dull character. Now, if Katherine did have a spawn out there somewhere, as you mentioned, there’s quite a number of “who’s the daddy” possibilities. Although I can’t see them going down the Ned route, that would reignite the brother/sister dynamic between Kelly and Setton which showed so much potential on OLTL.

Just as Katherine remains dead and they don’t recast the role with another soap vet.

I feel with he and Dante’s little competition he might set his sights on Sam who hopefully would knock him on his butt.

I have admired josh’s work since his OLTL days. He is very talented and a delight to watch his work. There has been a great deal of body shaming him online for being “TOO HEFTY WITH MAN BOOBS”. This is awful .Sure he was thinner back at OLTL but his “new” look is just fine. I struggle with BDD and find it really shameful how daytime in particular holds men up to almost impossible standards.I trained with weights for 20 years and ruined my shoulders. I also rowed and damaged my left knee.As a result I can’t do a lot… Read more »

Thank you for your post. I share your thoughts, feelings and observations 100% !

Thank you for saying this. GH has featured actors with diverse body types for a long time now. Can’t believe how tacky some of the comments being made are. Imagine the outrage if the women’s bodies were being discussed in such a way.

Greg, so glad to read your comments here. Thank you for sharing your story. I struggle with body issues (largely from diet and getting older) — many of us do.

I have watched these scenes, and I fail to see anything about Josh Kelly that is flawed. And even if there were any perceived “flaws” physically, or for instance, his body mass index indicated some level of obesity, he shouldn’t be held up for scorn or body shaming.

Greg, thank you for elevating this discussion with your personal account. I find the body shaming comments to be as tacky as it gets. Surely these commenters must be Adonis-like specimens themselves to impart such strong opinions.

We know a lot of the critics are female and the rest are hiding behind what ever device they are typing on. I’ve found out that a lot of people look more like the ones they’re criticizing.

I’ve been studying his photo and while he has this little sly, flirty look,it might also be construed as sneaky.

Grandma here is softening a little bit after today’s show when that goon beat up Cody. I think Britt was too, in spite of herself, bet she’ll take him home with her.
Aside, Carly sure liked what she saw in her pool, they sure prolonged this agony long enough.

His entrance reminded me of another One Life to Live character who dropped into Llanview by parachute… Luna Moody!

They didn’t care to post this the first time, so I’ll try again. Does anyone have an idea what’s going on with Spinelli? Wonder why he’s paying that wad of money to that woman that also hired Cody for his splashy stunt?

Cody acted kind of funny when Brett told him her who her father was. Hmm, brother maybe?

General Hospital

Finn Carr is General Hospital’s New Rocco Falconeri

Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) and Lulu’s son, Rocco is getting a new look! Enter young actor, Finn Carr, who will take over the role on-air beginning this week.

Carr is very familiar to TV fans who have watched Hot in Cleveland, Fuller House, Criminal Minds and more.  He has also appeared in streaming series for Netflix including Alexa & Katie, and most recently in an episode of Paramount+’s, I Carly.

Now that Rocco is a bit older (with Carr taking over the role), will he figure more into the story of Dante/Sam’s (Kelly Monaco) relationship, and the arrival of Dante’s buddy, Cody (Josh Kelly) on to the Port Charles scene?

The role of Rocco was first played by twins through 2017. Since then, Mason Tannous, O’Neill Monahan, and Brady Bauer have all played the part at one time or another.  In story, it was actually Britt (Kelly Thiebaud) who carried baby Rocco when she was implanted with Dante and Lulu’s stolen embryo.

Soap Opera Digest first reported this latest ‘Rocco’ casting switch in their latest issue on newsstands now.

So, please welcome Finn to the cast of GH in the comment section below!
