General Hospital

Just Who Is Roger Howarth's Character on General Hospital … Franco? Real Franco? A Quartermaine?

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

After this week’s episodes of General Hospital played out, we may be closer to finally having the reveal of just who Roger Howarth is playing now on the ABC soap opera.  Over many episodes, Roger Howarth’s character has smirked and hidden in dark corners, and closets!  And then there was that telling moment when RH’s character visited Heather Webber (Robin Mattson) in prison!

So just where are we at as we head into Memorial Day?  On Friday’s episode of GH,  Roger Howarth’s character sends out a text message blast invitation to several key characters on the canvas with Jason Morgan’s (Steve Burton) image on it with the tag line “Haunted Star, 8pm.  I’ll be there, will you?”

So what does this all add up to? Fans have been saying RH will turn out to be a “Franco’ recast, the role originated by James Franco.  Others are sure that he will turn out to be the REAL Franco and that the James Franco “Franco” was a fake Franco all along! Got that?  And still other fans think Roger Howarth could be another Quartermaine, Alexander Quartermaine!  And still some say he is really Jason Morgan, and some say he will be a Cassadine!

So we ask you, after Friday’s episode who do you think Roger Howarth’s character will turn out to be?  Weigh-in!

Michael I have no clue…but I’m so glad to see Roger at this point I don’t care who he is….but i’m a new GH watcher & i’ve heard long time viewers have strong opinions…I’ve heard many say they don’t want him to be Franco…but if he’s the “real ” Franco then maybe that’ll make a difference…..hmmm kind of reminds me of OLTL & the 2 Todds….LOL….Really so happy to see him back even though it was disappointing that he couldn’t continue to be Todd.

Ive been having such fun debating this crazy-making question. Have been doing pros and cons with twitter groups daily. This has turned into Soaps Who Shot JR. I WOULD PREFER todd still be Tidd. Legality wise wouldnt a name variation be good enough,

Maybe Sam’s Dad?

No, he is too young to be Sam’s dad. I think he is either the real Franco, not; psycho Franco, or he is the real Jason (Heather switched babies and RH is Alan Quartermaine’s real son).

I dont know RH is but, everyone that was invited to the haunted star knows him.
They said “its you” so they would know him without plastic surgery. The other characters go way back to the 80’s so the ivites would know him. Triplets, they would not know him either.

sorry, so the invites would NOT know him.

Franco. But whoever he plays I know Roger is brillant in whatever he plays because he has chemistry with every co-star and scene he’s in. I can’t wait for the reveal I’m so anxious I’m actually counting the hrs. Happy Memorial Day to all the people on this page and u Michael.

RH is brilliant, you’re absolutely right and as an actor who chose this profession to play different roles, I’m sure RH is happy to be doing something different other than Todd Manning. I’m thrilled to see this man back on my screen!! 😀

I give great praise to FV and RC and crew for keeping the suspense sky high with no spoilers as to who RH will be…
Not having a clue is welcomed intense drama up to the second of the unveiling !!

Thanks to RC for keeping it a close held secret and for the coming surprise !!

I think its safe to say he is the real Franco and James will turn out to have been a disturbed fan of his or a employee who was unhinged in his desire to be Franco. As much as I am enjoying the storyline I am hoping it will not take all of next week to reveal the truth.

I am just ready for the reveal. Writers are leading us to think he is Franco or Jason but I don’t think he will be. Franco is the logical one from his guest list and conversation with Heather but I believe we are going to be shocked at who he is.

I really and truly do not care who RH is playing anymore. I’m sick of this whole introduction and Roger has not peaked my curiosity or made me care who the hell he is. In fact, none of the three re-introductions (of the former OLTL characters) has gone over well. I’m especially hating KA’s Kiki (and the new Morgan character). Silas is a joke…ME is playing the same character he’s always played no matter what his name. The best solution for bringing these actors back would have been for them to play the exact same people as before, just with… Read more »

I agree with you on the Kiki disaster. Strongly dislike her. And the new Morgan is a whiney brat with an incessantly screwed up face. Not enjoying him at all. Silas isn’t as bad, but still don’t like yet another ME character trying to get mixed up with Sam. And do we need another doctor at GH? (I’m assuming he’ll be transferring to GH very soon.) The whole nonsense of the OLTL characters coming in, then leaving, and now coming back as other people is tiresome to me. Give me more Anna, Duke, Lucy, Kevin, Mac, Luke, and Laura.

I hope he’s the real Jason Q! Heather switched babies. It would make the impact on everyone who was close to Jason M so much more profound and interesting than RH being a Franco recast or the real Franco.

If he’s Franco I hope he’s the “real” Robert Frank and not a recast. RH can play just about anything but I would hate for him to be a psychopath.

Robert
Guest
Robert

I like your assessment Lori. That would be a huge bombshell if he is the real Jason Quartermaine and it turns out that “Jason” was Heather Webber’s real son. Ohh that would be interesting. However, having him be the real Robert Frank would be good too but I would love it if he could be Todd as he and Carly had mad chemistry (sorry Blair).

Pen
Guest

No reason he couldn’t be both – the real Jason AND a Frank. What if ‘Franco’ and Howarth were the original twins, and ‘Jason’ was just this random baby Heather switched out? I mean, she’d DO that.

GH has lost all of its momentum from the 50th anniversary and it’s become unwatchable again. I’m not surprised that the ratings are starting to freefall again. Many of the vets who were brought back have vanished. The crossover nonsense with The Chew was so lame and forced. Bringing back Roger, Kristen, and Michael (aka the OLTL 3)as completely new front/center characters this quickly is ludicrous and a major turn off to many viewers. (Prospect Park is being totally ridiculous with that lawsuit, and those AMC/OLTL reboots won’t last.) Yes, Cartini did some good things since they were brought on… Read more »

Violet
Guest

I agree. I think that the three OLTL actors coming back yet again is ridiculous. I really don’t like aggressive, over-the-top Kiki, nor do I like the new Morgan. Yuck. I’m still undecided about RH’s character, but had just come to accept and enjoy him as Todd when he left.

Many of us predicted the ratings dip would happen when the Nurses Ball was over and some of the vets left.

And The Chew? Spew.

I am loving this… though I would like to know soon! I really hope he is not a recast of James Franco’s “Franco” as I have had enough of him. If he is the real Franco… maybe ok. I would really like him to be Alexander Quartermaine or a Cassadine. I don’t think he is Jason. Based on Heather’s scenes with him I think he is a Q… possibly someone we do not know of. Again based on what he has done so far… he can’t be a recast of Jason. Whoever he is… it’s going to be fun!!! Can’t… Read more »

I’ll say Franco but what would be a better twist is that he’s Alans son with Heather before she arrived in Port Charles…Alan never knew of him because Heather was artificially insemenated when she was 19 by a quack doctor who was obsessed with Heather and vice versa. Heathers mom Alice Grant disaproved of the relationship and had the baby taken away from Heather as soon as it was born. Alice had a sister or brother who raised the child as their own. Before the doctor died he confessed to Alice that the father was Alan. Alice kept all this… Read more »

I meant to say this doctor wanted Alice to believe the child was his…he couldnt have children of his own…so he wanted Alice to think he got Heather pregnant to force her to accept the relationship but she didnt anyway because she felt he was too old for her teen aged daughter.

He couldve wronged Sam years ago and got her in trouble with the law when she was very young.

Christy
Guest
Christy

precisely. I was thinking heather and jimmy lee holt’s child Jimmy was another Quartermaine long ago, and they were involved briefly in ’83 so it could be plausible… but then he (mystery man) went to visit Heather and said he hurt Samantha Morgan, so that would mean it’s not son of Heather/Jimmy nor would it be Jason, cuz Jason wouldn’t go see Heather nor would he refer to his own wife by her whole name.

but he could be the real franco, and the other psycho could have been a ploy.

Very interesting indeed! I do think this makes a lot of sense, and considering how FV/RC love to dig in GH’s past, such a story would be a lot more solid and interesting than a simple Franco recast (which I’m hoping it isn’t). Seriously, we saw Franco die from a gunshot wound, Jason did the job and I would hate it if they bought a psycho back that has no possibilitites in terms of interactions. I mean, NO ONE will want to deal with a crazy guy like that! Bringing him back would be useless, as opposed to bringing long… Read more »

Michael, I love the intrigue and the Actor… This is what I came up with after watching Friday. Maybe Roger is a triplet of Susan Moore. Only Heather knows and she knew him. Not Franco. She would not know his face if it was changed by Plastic surgery. Besides Ron and Frank are too smart to make Roger a murderer. And the DVD… When Franco gave it to Jason & Sam, maybe he edited out the third baby. So if Roger is Jason’s and AJ’s brother….WOW!!!! , all the possibilities on the canvas that’s comes into his orbit. I have… Read more »

I think he should be the real Franco and the Franco played by James Franco is a fake. At least that’s what I am thinking. Then he could be Kiki’s father. I hope he isn’t just a recast Franco and I don’t want him to be Jason. RH looks more like he could be a brother to Jason than James Franco does anyway. Whoever RH ends up being, I love him and think he is awesome and I love Gh. I am a long time GH viewer, I have been watching since almost the beginning.

If he is the REAL Franco we’ve been there done that on OLTL and as much as RH and TSJ sold the s/l without them it would of been unwatchable and still doesn’t make much sense. From what I know about Jason he wouldn’t do this to his family in such public way. Also as a random Quartermaine contacting those closet to Jason wouldn’t really be needed.

GH is now down about 400-500,000 total viewers from its recent high earlier this year and it has fallen below DOOL into fourth among women 18-49. Those are facts. For all this talk that GH has been on such a roll under RC and FV- yes, it was for a short time. But the truth is that currently it has fallen back to not far above the all-time lows it reached in late 2011 and early 2012. There was nowhere to go but up at that point and any tiny little increase would be an improvement. I bet that privately… Read more »

It won’t matter what they call him to me, because RH has becomes such a “ham” in recent years, that is all I can think of when he is on screen. How good he used to be, versus how awful he is now.

Well, after a lot of thinking and reading, I have come to the conclusion that it could possibly be Jason. The real Jason would not do the things RH has been doing in Port Charles ….. but what if when he fell in the water he hit his head and changed personality ….. just like he did when he was in the car accident with A J? So if that happened, we have a meaner and not so nice Jason …. who really doesn’t care as much about Sam, the baby Danny, and his friends. And he definitely had facial… Read more »

I think we learned today that it is likely not Jason as the RH character made reference to the reason Jason being so quiet is because his family is so talkative. Specifically, he said something like “no wonder you were so quiet, your family never shuts up.” I am sort of leaning toward Franco except for the fact that supposedly this character is supposedly recognizable by many main characters. So how could it be the real Franco? I have to admit I am very curious to find out. I have been watching for GH for a long time – through… Read more »

First, RH would be too young to be Sam’s daddy. I think he is Franco or if not a henchman of Cesar Faison ordered to create havoc in PC. After all it was Faison who killed Jason. And, whose face appeared on all those text messages? Jason. Strange coincidence. And, he isn’t Jason. Jason wouldn’t sabotage his grandma’s relish. The Faison theory is far fetched, so I am sticking with Franco who will foil both Tracy and AJ’s plan to get Franco’s daughter’s 6% of Quartermaine stock. And, it would put RH and KA being father and daughter under new… Read more »

I really miss Roger playing Todd on GH, but since that is not an option right now, I’m just grateful he’s on the show! I’m super intrigued by his character and this whole set up at the Haunted Star. If there’s one thing Ron really excels at, it’s big reveals and I feel as though this one will be a doozy! My personal bet is that he will be the real Franco, maybe having hired James Franco’s character, hence him talking about hurting Sam (because he hired the man that raped her), but I could totally be wrong.

Most viewers don’t care and believe that the returns of the One Lifers as new characters has destroyed credibility and continuity with the show and made it look so crudely and obviously unbelievable. I know ABC’s intention was noble, to save the three actors from being out of work because Prospect Park was forcing them to give up the characters but let’s face it, daytime viewers on the whole, especially those who have only watched one particular network, have long memories and will not be able to see them as new characters.

I agree. I agree. I agree. I had just been able to finally accept the OLTL 3 when they left. Their departures, except Todd’s, were ridiculous, but their returns are even more ludicrous.

According to SoapZone.com, RH. Is playing the “real Franco,” which means the first Franco wasn’t the real one. It’s in the GH news & gossip column on SoapZone. I think what happens is the ” real Franco” ( RH’s character ) was a victim of identity theft. It seems plausible because when The first Franco was in the Art Museum speaking with Maxie, she didnt believe he was Franco – the artist ( James Franco’s character). Maxie asked James Franco’s character for ID to prove who he was & he pulled out 2 passports with other people’s names on them… Read more »

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

Photo: Getty

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

Courtney Hope Gets Marriage Advice From Her Y&R Co-Stars Ahead of Her Wedding to GH’s Chad Duell

This weekend, The Young and the Restless Courtney Hope (Sally), is set to walk down the aisle and marry the love of her life, General Hospital’s Chad Duell (Michael).  The nuptials are to take place this Saturday, October 23rd according to the wedding planner Zola.

Ahead of the popular soap duo’s vows, Courtney asked some of her Y&R co-stars advice, but as their characters in a very cute Instagram video on The Young and the Restless IG account with the accompanying text: “Marriage advice you don’t normally hear… as told by the #YR stars 😉 A special thank you to our real-life bride-to-be @TheCourtneyHope for asking! 😂”

Participating are: Peter Bergman (Jack), Amelia Heinle (Victoria), Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mishael Morgan (Amanda), Christian LeBlanc (Michael, Eileen Davidson (Ashley), Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe), and Christel Khalil (Lily).

In terms of advice, Amelie Heinle told Hope, “As Victoria Newman, I would say that you need to marry a man that is not going to be around for very long, and especially if he has a lot of money.”

Christel Khalil offered up some Lily marital suggestions: “Don’t let your husband let you think that he’s dead and that you’ve slept with a ghost!”

As for Courtney and Chad, the couple had been dating for five years, and this past Valentine’s Day, they became engaged.

Please share your well-wishes to Courtney and Chad as they embark on their life together via the comment section below, and let us know what you think of the marital advice given to Hope from the citizens of Genoa City.
