There will be a new cop at the PCPD and on General Hospital with the casting of actor Michael Blake Kruse in the role of Rory.

Soap Opera Digest confirmed the news after online speculation that Cruse has been added to the canvas in Port Charles.

Michael recently appeared on Grey’s Anatomy and the series Everything is Fine.

Kruse is on-contract as GH so viewers will see a lot more of him

How do you figure Rory will figure into the current storylines? Who might he be romantically linked to? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Well…. if they pair him up with Maxie, we know he won’t last long. Just ask the last three cops she hooked up with.

I’ll take that as a compliment. Are you enjoying my work on Days??

Loved your work on DAYS at first, but I think you have overstayed your welcome.

Poor Maxie!! Too soon to make any predictions–Nonetheless, will new cop, Rory, be the good cop or be under your spell, Satan, as the bad cop?
Methinks, he is developing some feeling for Trina….Unless, he is working for Ryan or Victor, as a spy.

Fantastic casting choice, I love when GH adds more diversity and inclusivity. I’m not sure of the name Rory, however, I approve of this casting choice. What will Chase do…? Will he finally re-join the cop squad with Dante and Nu-Jordan? Where’s Valerie???? She just vanished…. a new recast would be important, to keep the Spencer family dynamics in play.

I agree! Where is Valerie? GH needs to strengthen their police force!!

I don’t want to see less of Officer Chase…

Chase is a detective, the new guy is a uniform officer.

Story wise, it looks like they may be heading down a Frisco route with Chase – cop by day, singer by night.

Sorry Steve…i used “officer” as a generic term..but you are correct.

I noticed this new “officer” in the interview room gaurd when Trina was being held.

Steve

No need to apologize.

Rory’s soft intro is very unusual which makes the character even more intriguing.

Also, per Friday’s credits, Robert Gossett is now on contract which means the Marshall storyline will be kicking up.

Thanks Steve… lol..it’s Canadian trait…

It’ll be interesting to see what he brings to the table. Maybe another long-lost Wu relative that could spark some spice with Britt Westbourne? Or maybe awaken Mikey’s true sexuality?

Michael isn’t gay

Here we go again — more unnecessary characters brought in. We already have Chase and Dante…or are we filling up the police department to handle the upcoming crime resurgence? We can see Madame Wu pulling Brad’s strings and Sonny will have to refocus energy on his syndicate. I resist new characters when existing ones are underused. So, hopefully this young man will offer something special.

DM

Yes, let Sonny wake up and reclaim his place…this whiny person he’s become is a . and lose the Nina connection. Selena Wu cannot take over, please let Brad get some “grit in his craw” and tell Auntie that “enough is enough”.

He has a little Asian look going. I hope he’s not a plant of Mrs. WOO

Hey why not? If Sonny can have a son in the PCPD why can’t she, right?

I spoke too soon. Looks nothing like his picture. This young man is adorable and hope he’s a good guy.You can tell he likes Trina, and she needs someone as good as she is and nothing like that spoiled, two-faced Spencer.

Celia

Oh, my gosh!! By his picture, my first thought was that he’d be an addition to the College crowd—That’s how young he looks to me. LOL—
Welcome—

Maybe Esme will use him to help her. Or maybe he is her secret brother. Or Victor hired him for no good?

It definitely can’t hurt ‍♀️ So many of these story lines are going know place. I don’t really care for the New Trina either she seems robotic to me . doesn’t have that real effect as the other Trina did .

It can’t hurt. Many of the story lines are going No place. I don’t even like this new Trina she seems robotic Doesn’t have that real feel to her like the original Trina did.

It always takes a while to get used to new characters. Give her a little more time to get comfortable. I’m sure she’ll be great : )

CeeCee ( derivative of Cecelia) has been my nickname from birth!!—WOW!! I switched to “Celia” because my account was hacked. It’s weird seeing it here. I have never ever encountered it before now. I’ve seen “Cece”, “Cici” and “Cicci”, but never as “CeeCee”….Hmmmm….
And, I agree with Doris. NuTrina has not grabbed me yet. However, you’re right. Let’s wait and see.

Soaphound

Hi CELIA! Yes, nuTrina is competent and seems dedicated to the role. I think what’s happening here is that every so often, a performer has that special quality that just can’t be forgotten. Sydney Mikalya is one. It’s no one’s fault. I have my list of daytime performers who just can’t be replaced…Maura West, Billy Miller, Jane Elliot, Jeanne Cooper. Makes you appreciate when shows find that special talent (like Josh Swickard).

Maybe he’ll get involved with Amy. Her name came up a couple of times this week.

he was really nice to trina today i knew he was going to be important to the show.

Yes, Brenda, I thought he seemed wary of how badly Spencer was treating Trina and then…the most romantic can of soda I’ve ever seen. He won me over right away with a can of pop…not sure what that says.

Oh, I agree, she seemed surprised as well.

Oh Violet, I am SOOOOO mad at that tool known as Spencer Cassadine. How DARE he trot down to the station just to tell Trina that he believes that she-witch Esme is innocent. “Oh Trina, I wanted to believe you but…” Bull Puckey! The only “butt” is him! He’s a spineless jellyfish with good hair. I hope this sweet new cop is genuine. I’d love to see Spencer jealous and squirming in Esme’s evil cauldron!

Tell us how you really feel, you go girl! My sentiments exactly. I’d add more if I could think of it. That girl is the worst. Thought Ava would have a coronary when she saw her sitting there. I’ve been trying to remember ever gating a character as much as this one.

I think there already is a connection between Rory and Trina. Some of the looks he’s given her are already stoking the fire…he will prove to be the one to get the “goods” on Esme and Ryan. Yes, there is a romantic thing going on with Spencer and Trina, and she is good for him, but Roy will cause Spencer to wish he’d made a better decision than staying with Esme. Perhaps he’s just lying low until he gets proof that Esme is guilty and NOT pregnant…Don’t wait too long Spencer!!!!

Answer me this;
Why does every male or female that enters GH (all) soap need to be hooked
with someone from near day one..
There are millions of men and women that are single.
Is it a sin to be single on a soap, it is not realistic, not even close.
There are a tremendous number of single people who love it.
I want single people that love their lifestyle.

Violet Lemm

Love your question and it’s true. The minute a new guy or gal enters the show, a lot of us and I do it too, are already trying to figure out who they might pair well with. I have only two theories to offer. One, they are helpless romantics or is the other thing that the Soaps are the only place they find love, very sad.

Steve
Guest

Agreed on the single character front. On GH, I appreciate Britt’s not being desperate to find someone new.

However, actors know soap job security comes with being part of a popular couple. Brando and Sasha, two characters who have little purpose on the canvas make a rootable couple which justifies keeping them around. While Scotty and Liesl are both popular characters, pairing the two was a brilliant move that showcases each character’s softer side.

With soap economics the way they are, we’ll likely never see another Amy Vining, on contract for nearly 20 years with maybe one relationship.

Soaphound

Well said, Steve. Soaps are basically fantasy, right? I guess most of us enjoy a love story that works. Same with movies; even mismatched lovers make great movies, like THE WAY WE WERE; GONE WITH THE WIND; CHILDREN OF A LESSER GOD; CASABLANCA; etc.

I wonder what he was up to today listening in on Jordan and Dante. He seems very interested in Trina’s case and her. Hope it’s in a good way.

According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now, Batten will play the role of home shopping-star Flora Gardens!

Batten former boss, Frank Valentini (executive producer, GH) called Susan and said about the role: , “Okay, there’s this character named Flora Gardens.”  To which Susan responded, “Does she have teeth?”   After the two shared a laugh, Susan said “yes’ to the role.

OLTL fans will remember Luna’s torrid relationship with Max Holden (James DePaiva).

The actress/writer/producer reported that she was a ‘still very nervous’ acting on soap again (she last appeared on One Life in 2012), but said once she got into the rhythm of the shooting and delivering the lines it was all good.

So, looking forward to seeing Susan on GH? Comment below. But first, take a moment to stroll down memory lane in this clip from OLTL, when Max proposes to Luna.
