While Morgan’s death has caused a huge rift and ripple effect through the entire Corinthos clan, needless to say Bryan Craig’s (Ex-Morgan) departure from General Hospital left a large hole in his on-screen TV family, but is also providing the cast with great story in which they turn in even greater performances.

Craig, who a few weeks back teased he booked and then was shooting his first film project following the end of his run as the troubled Morgan, posted a photo of himself as a shaved skinhead with a bandana around his face touting he has been cast in a new feature called Ride and playing the role of “Jack”.

This week however, ABC Soaps In Depth is reporting more intel on Craig’s movie role!  The feature Ride is based on the true story of BMX champion John Buultjens, a teen who was on the road to ruin before being fostered by an interracial couple. The father, played by award-winning actor/rapper Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, buys the young man his first bicycle which starts him on a path to success.

According to SID, the film is still in production so an actual release date is still yet to be determined.

So, what do you think now of Craig’s new role? Sounds like a great fit for this Daytime Emmy-winning actor, wouldn’t you say? Comment below!

Too much a big deal on Morgan…the family emotionally upset continues…Carly’s grief goes on and on…but for Nicholas Cassidine i blinked and the Spenser/Cassidine families grief was gone in a split second…both characters will sooner or later return anyway….so im not on the edge of my seat waiting…sigh!!!!

I’m really happy for Bryan. Met him at multiple fan events, and he is as nice as he is talented. He deserves, and has earned, his success. I’m looking forward to seeing the film when it’s released.

Well, I wish this talented young actor the best. I enjoyed most of his performances and I admire his dedication to the very emotional bipolar story. But I’m too busy panicking right now over these Internet rumors that Steve Burton MIGHT (though there’s nothing to corroborate this) return to GH, maybe as Jason. Oh, Celia and many of you other Billy Miller fans, what will we (I) do if that means Billy M. will be gone? How will I get along without my favorite soap actor? I may have to start a support group. Has anyone heard anything beyond rumors?

I’ve seen those rumors too about Steve Burton. Once he left Y&R, it was only a matter of time before the rumor mill started churning about him returning to GH. Could be an interesting story if everything worked out, where maybe Billy Miller really isn’t Jason, sort of like what OLTL did with Trevor St. John and Roger Howarth. Of course, that’s a big if, as no one knows if there is anything to the rumors at this point I know Billy is a good actor, you don’t win the awards he’s won for nothing. But I’ve just never warmed… Read more »

I hear you… DAYTIME took a huge dive and spiral… without Michael Muhney. by the way : I was so surprised to see a picture of him… an actual MM sighting… was a picture of him… getting 7 stitches… something about skin cancer ? i’m not sure on that – SOD issue from last week I WILL be surprised… if GH renews Billy Miller contract. there is little to BUZZ about Sam and Jason GH needs to completely overhaul his character … why not make him a doctor ? imagine if he balks at this and wants to be stone… Read more »

There is no buzz about Sam and Jason, but this network seems incapable of admitting when they are wrong and actually listening to it’s fans

I hated the part with Carly talking about Julian being arrogant and does what he wants…that he killed Duke…she just described Scummy Corinthos who killed AJ…then you have Micheal who is upset with Sonny whom he blames for Morgan’s alleged death yet he forgives him for murdering his birth father AJ….

I wish him the best of everything he goes through and good luck to you. But I think the sure replace him and general Hospital I don’t think the cancels should go through the heartache of losing their sons very just stressful and I would love to see sunny and Carly stay longer together. They should have just pulled him out of the river Michael

Wishing Bryan much success in his future. I don’t think they should bring another actor in as Morgan. As for Steve Burton, never felt Billy Miller was Jason. He just never was righr in the part. Would welcome Steve back

I’ve been watching GH since I was a little girl I love the story lines I love The Afters I think they all do a great job this one storyline of Morgan dying really broke my heart and it touched my heart it’s really hard for parents to lose a child and I felt that heartbreak with Carly and Sonny there’s nothing like a Parent’s Love

We can likely deduce Steve is not coming back to GH. He had a sweetheart deal with Jill at Y&R that no one is likely to duplicate at Y&R or, anywhere else. Top salary, lots of time off to be home in Nashville with his family including the newest addition and to work his other businesses, etc. Also, Michael Muhney was clearly fired almost three years ago from Y&R, black-balled and limited to ‘D’ grade films. He received a rigorous defense from his fans but, never denied the rumored reason for his dismissal so I’m definitely not expecting him back… Read more »

GH’s James Patrick Stuart in the Cast of Disney Channel’s Super-Villains Pilot ‘Amy From Amarillo’

Casting news was recently announced for the Disney Channel’s upcoming half-hour live-action comedy pilot with a working title of Amy From Amarillo.

According to Deadline, while the series has named actress Isabella Pappas in the title role of Amy, none other than General Hospital star James Patrick Stuart (Valentin Cassadine) is also noted to be a part of the cast.

In story, the project follows a family of super-villains who must go on into hiding in Amarillo, Texas when they fall afoul of the League of Villains and are about to be liquidated.  Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.

Those joining Stuart and Pappas in the cast include: Hilda Spellman, Patricia Belcher, Kayden Muller-Janssen, Malachi Barton, Reed Horstmann and Lucy Davis will plays Amy’s mom, Eva aka Spark, a feisty supervillain who shoots electrical current out of her hands.

Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.  Stuart will be continuing his role on GH as per usual.

Furthermore, James took to Twitter this morning to clarify for inquiry GH fans who were concerned about the status the project might cause for his role on the ABC daytime drama series: “I am currently working on a Disney Channel comedy pilot. We film 15 minutes from the GH stage so, should the show get picked up for series, and while it would create scheduling headaches for some very cool people, I have no plans to hang up Valentin’s dancing shoes any time soon.”

General Hospital and ‘H.R. Pufnstuf’s’ Billie Hayes Dead at 96

She was one-of-a-kind, and now actress Billie Hayes has passed away at the age of 96.  Hayes’ family announced her death from natural causes on April 29th at Cedar-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.

Hayes was best-known for her unforgettable role as Witchiepoo on the 1969-70 Saturday morning live-action children’s classic H.R. Pufnstuf from Sid and Marty Kroft.

However, daytime fans will remember that then General Hospital executive producer, Gloria Monty, hired Hayes to play the recurring role of the street-smart international spy, Brighton O’Reilly, back in the 80’s series hey day.

GH’s Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) took to Twitter to mourn the loss of Hayes on Monday sharing; “My dear wonderful Billie Hayes has died. Sadly I only got to work with her on GH but it was a magical relationship. Right away Gloria Monty saw something unique and ran with it. I cannot tell you how her passing saddens me.”

In story, Brighton O’Reilly was shot and killed by Victor Cassadine back in 1981. Billie told Soap Opera Digest back in 2003 about her time as an agent on GH, and her exit from the series: “I asked Gloria why she killed me off, and Gloria said, ‘To tell you the truth, Billie, we really hemmed and hawed at it. But I decided to do it for selfish reasons. I knew if I killed O’Reilly there’d be such an abundance of sympathy and love for Scorpio that his stock would go up. And he’s my new leading man!’ I understand why Gloria knocked me off, but I would have loved to have gone on with it because I feel it could have been developed into a fascinating character.”

Sid and Marty Kroft also took to Twitter and expressed:  “Margaret Hamilton (Wizard of Oz) once told us that Billie Hayes was “one of the best witches ever” We couldn’t agree more. Rest in Peace dear friend.”

Billie’s career spanned decades including Broadway, television, motion pictures and voice-over work. In addition, she founded the Los Angeles-based animal rescue nonprofit organization Pet Hope, a cause she had championed since adopting a puppy abandoned in the basement of Broadway’s St. James Theatre during the run of Lil’ Abner in which she was featured in the role of Mammy Yokum.
