LOL, Boes….Blake had a strong resemblance to Peter ( Jack)….but, yes…you’re too funny and right !!!!
That voice did him in….
Just as Harry’s comment (above) did me in….without fail….Oh, my Lord!! Cracking up.
Aside–what’s up with Phyllis?…is she tired of Billy already? What the heck is she preaching about?….the irony of anything justifiable coming out of her mouth BITES!!
How is she ‘better’ than Sharon? How soon we forget….

My sentiment exactly. Jill Farren Phelps happened to Blake Hood, he wasn’t one of her picks. I am really enjoying what Mal Young is doing with the show. I recognize characters again, Nikki, Sharon, Lauren, Ashley, Jack, even Phyllis. I hope he continues, and I’d like to see Kyle written in a worthy storyline.

I liked Blake. He had kind of a Michael J. Fox thing going on.

I liked him, too, Timm. Maybe he was a threat to someone at the time. But at least they’re bringing back a character that could make the boardroom, not just the bedroom, more compelling.

Let’s hope the mix of actor and story works this time. Kyle abbot should be a strong character on the Genoa City landscape. There so few third generation Abbotts. We have Abby and Kyle in play now. Is Keeno still alive? Of course, Colleen is deceased. Summer was determined to be a Newman after all. Let’s do this!

Oh Lord please don’t bring back Summer!

Wonder who he will be paired with now that Summer is gone, maybe a Summer recast in the works.

me too… w re now on our 4th kyle… should ve gone back to the best which was the very 1st, Blake hood. Clearly the recasts are’nt working!
i hope the show commits to a young generation story.
say what you want but i really enjoyed summer and austin. that was the last time the show invested screentime with the young characters! was really hoping for a mariah/ austin/ summer triangle back then. lol. but then it turned into the scooby murder mystery. ..oh well

The character of Kyle Abbott is the new version of Tom Hughes from the cancelled ATWT. Before Scott Holmes started playing Tom in the very late 80s, at least 10 actors had played this son of two prominent show characters who were played by the same actors for decades. I really think the constant recasting of Kyle, Abby, and Noah over the past decade has not done the show any favors. These characters are the “next” generation of the main families. The show needs to find an actor for the each part, keep them employed, and give them their own… Read more »

Better news would be the show not hiring anyone else until they have some actual stories for the actors they already have.

Agree with you, stories are very boring.

Agree again with you Alan…I respect all viewpoints but I cannot understand those who think Mal Young is good for Y&R, IMO he is destroying Y&R with his type of writing…

I Would have preferred Blake return. This guy is handsome. If he can act and they have a story, go for it!

Yawn….. I’d be more interested in Jack’s son Keemo making a return to Genoa City.

Peter Bergman won’t allow that he has made it well known Keemo never happened. I would like for him to have a wild affair with Hilary and stomp that little twit Devon in the dirt be a womanizer that is what Jack was when he started on the show.

Kyle Abbott is to Y&R what Kevin Buchanan was to OLTL

And what Joey Martin was to AMC.

And what Jamie Frame was to AW.

Does Jack ever even mention Keemo? Wouldn’t it be a cool story if Keemo’s kids turned up to live with Grandpa Jack?

I’ve always felt it was important to develop the younger cast and next generations of the main families– as well as introducing new families. I remember when Y and R brought in Tricia and her sister (Meghan, I think.) It added a new development into the story for Nina and Ryan. By the way, the Tricia character is one I’d love to see back in Genoa City. As for Kyle– time for big stories. I can see it already: Tessa or Mariah. My point: make him a relevant character. Make Abby relevant. Make Mariah relevant. Make Reed relevant. Make the… Read more »

For now, I’ll just say this: I hope that this Michael Mealor dude is A MAJOR IMPROVEMENT over that Lachlan Buchanan dude.

Later.

Ingo Rademacher Speaks Out On His Dismissal From GH Sharing: “I Was Hoping to Play Jax For Another 10 or 25 Years and Unfortunately, That’s Not Going to Happen”

For the first time since he was fired for not adhering to General Hospital’s and Disney/ABC’s Covid-19 vaccine mandate, Ingo Rademacher (Ex-Jax), addressed his exit from the soap opera via an “official video” message on his Instagram account.

Ingo expressed: “I’m sorry that I didn’t put out this video earlier, but this is about thanking you guys, the fans of the show and also the GH crew and cast. I was on the show for 25 years. They were like my family a lot of the people there. I was hoping to play Jax for another 10 or 25 years and unfortunately, that’s not going to happen. I want to thank you guys for sticking with Jax for 25 years and I’m sorry that I’m not there anymore to play Jax, which is still something that I am trying to process  … it’s just kind of crazy.”

Rademacher also took aim at his former co-star, Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) for announcing on Twitter that he was no longer on the show, before he had a chance to do so, which he says was a huge disappointment to him given that they worked together for 25 years.

He went on to say how he appreciated all the positive comments from the fans adding, “A lot of you come on there to say that you’re vaccinated but stand for medical freedom, I love hearing that, because I believe it should be a choice.”  Ingo continued to express his view, “I don’t agree with vaccine mandates or corporations ever being able to mandate a vaccine to keep your job.”

The actor closed with another nod to the viewers of GH adding, “Thank you so much for supporting me for 25 years. I will have more news later on, but for now, just wanted to thank all of you amazing fans. Thank you.”

You can watch Rademacher’s full statement via his IG post below.  Then, let us know what you thought of Ingo’s long-awaited exit message in the comment section.

I’m so impressed with the way they navigate the Covid protocols. It’s not easy but we’ll worth it. We’ve got some fun storylines coming up. I’ve been thrown in the middle of a current storyline and I think Felicia’s part in it gives it some color. Stay tuned!”

Earlier in the week on Tuesday via Twitter, Kristina expressed: “Tomorrow I head back to work on General Hospital! Lucky me. I couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of that family once again. Here we go. More to come. Felicia Scorpio rides again.”
