Justin Hartley (Adam) / dead in the water, to me..
I am a big MM fan and he is the one and only Adam..

Burgess Jenkins (Billy) / a huge fail, to me..

Gina Tognoni (Phyllis) so far so good.. (still not thee Red, but OK..

Scott Elrod (Joe) .. I like 🙂

su0000 doesn’t it just tear at the very fabric of all that is true and good to have to relinquish any lingering negative thoughts of GT as Phyllis. Now people will clamor for either GT or MS whenever the character goes off on extended leave and returns. That didn’t even happen for the Jill Abbot recasts…we wanted Brenda Dickson back in all her glory and she will always be the definitive Jill but we love JessWalton…this time…altogether different. Why Burgess Jenkins continues to appear is a mystery. He has the Abbot look so that’s all I can figure. Never has… Read more »

Dave, you forgot the quintessential smiley face. I honestly cannot understand anyone declaring that a recast will be dead in the water before they’ve even been given a chance? Maybe, just maybe, the new Adam will be a hit. As I recall when the first Adam vacated the role and Michael Muhney was cast, a collective roar of outrage could be heard coming from the bleachers. ‘No, no one can else can play Adam!” And then Michael happened. SU000, I will give you an A + for inconsistency. You claimed Phyllis could not be recast but now you admit (without… Read more »

Oh, Su…you just like Joe !!!! How dare you just like?????….LOL.

I think Gina is doing a great job with Phyllis so far. As for Justin, I’m really hopeful that he’ll do well in the role of Adam. After all, I don’t think they would have hired him if he wasn’t up to par for the role. I really like Scott and I’m looking forward to seeing where Joe’s story goes from here – I think he’ll be Matt Clark’s brother and it will somehow tie into the return of Amy Wilson… As for Burgess… words can’t describe how disappointed I am in his casting. He sounds like he’s reading the… Read more »

I too once said Justin shouldve played Billy with Burgess as Joe and the actor playing Joe shouldve been Adam…

Gotta agree about the Billy recast. It’s been disappointing and I have a hard time buying him as a romantic lead. He just seems flat and awkward to me but MCE saves the whole thing. She’s really working overtime to sell it. AH doesn’t seem even bother putting much into it in the Villy scenes. I’m really excited about JH though. He’s always been great at interviews so it should be good. I’ve also enjoyed Gina’s performance and Scott Elrod is ok so far. His delivery is a little bit dull but he is very good looking and his character… Read more »

So very excited to see Justin Hartley in action as Adam.

I think Burgess Jenkins had a rough transition as Billy but he is growing on me. I really loved his scenes with little Sophie on Tuesday and he has incredible chemistry with Melissa Claire Egan.

I love Gina but she’s not Phyllis to me. I loved Phyllis because she was this fiery loose cannon who was her own worst enemy not a cold and calculating terminator.

Haven’t seen enough of Joe Clark to have an opinion.

Give Gina time, I’m sure she’ll become Phyllis for you. Trust me, I felt the same way because Michelle Stafford has always been Phyllis, but I think Gina is doing very well so far. She’s definitely one of the better recasts in Y&R’s recent history.

And the only reason Burgess has chemistry with Melissa Claire Egan is because it’s Melissa Claire Egan, she has chemistry with everyone they pair her in scenes with, both romantically and not. BJ does not add to the scenes at all. And he also has very little chemistry with anyone else.

Burgess and Gina are better than the previous actors. Since I only started watching this soap after AMC was canceled, I don’t have the connection that long time viewers have. I am really liking Gina and Burgess a lot. MM was really good as Adam. The new Adam has a lot of work to be as good as he was. I just wish the new Adam would hurry up and start appearing as more than just an arm! I think Y&R is just getting better and better. The sets are brighter, the hairstyles and makeup are better. And Victor and… Read more »

Burgess is better than Billy Miller? Hahahahaha. BM just won the Outstanding Lead Actor Emmy. Burgess won’t sniff one, EVER.

KateA may have been referring to David Tom since technically he was the last one before BJ. IMO BJ is the worst recast in the last 20 yrs! I think even DO was doing fine. I’m surprised he is still there, too. He maybe could have come on as another character.
I’m so irritated that ABC has dome nothing to promote Billy Miller at GH. Why not The View? Irks me.

Whaaaat???? Seriously? OMG. KateA, with all due respect, if by your own admission, you are not familiar with Miller and Stafford, how can you even begin to make a comparison? No way, no how . Gina is wonderful, but too soon to tell if she even comes close to what Michelle DID as Phyllis.
Burgess? No comment.

I am familiar with Stafford and Miller. Billy Miller was on AMC before he went to Y&R. When I started watching Y&R, they were both still on the show. I had to fast forward through Stafford. Gina keeps me watching, I don’t go anywhere. Billy Miller is fine but I really like Burgess better. This is my opinion and I said I don’t have the connection to the previous actors that long time viewers have.

I’m Loving GT as “Phyllis”. The verdict is way out on JH as Nu Adam. BG is a terrible “Billy”, I FF through his scenes. JFP has complety slaughtered this show, she is the worst hack. Her initial statement when taking over was “I’m coming in with a scalpel to make slight necessary changes”. This witch has butchered our show with no remorse, unbelievable arrogance. I despise her for this. Please FIRE this whack job!

sorry folks but im not caring about nu-phyllis, nor nu billy recast for the same reasons…they are nice enough but they are not the character they’ve been cast to play…i know those of you who like nu-phyllis like her because of some other soaps shes been on but she aint phyllis to me…and i actually find the whole phyllis story line so totally unbelievable that i cant get into it…and seriously, will jack just man up and lose the gaping mouthed fish face? for crying out loud…just tell the truth!! i will wait and see about the body replacement for… Read more »

OLTL Alum Christopher Cousins Appears on General Hospital as Dante’s Doctor

On Thursday, the very shrewd fans of daytime drama, noticed a very familiar face on General Hospital in scenes with Dominic Zamprogna in Dante’s return storyline.

Playing Dante’s Doctor turned out to be Christopher Cousins, most soap-famous for his role as Cain Rogan on One Life to Live from 1991 to 1994 and later reprising the role of the conman back in 2008.  Cain was romantically involved with Tina Lord (Andrea Evans) while in story in Llanview.

Cousins also made appearance on two other daytime drama: as Greg Houston on Another World in 1986 and as Colin Crowley on As the World Turns in 1990.  More recently Christopher has been appearing in numerous primetime TV shows and films.

So, do you hope Christopher sticks around on General Hospital?  Do you think it’s just a guest stint for him to serve Dante’s story? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Setton had nothing but good things to say about her replacement: “I can’t wait to see what Briana brings to the character! I’m sure she will do an incredible job and will bring her own interpretations to this fun and complex character! I’ll be watching and rooting for her all the way!”

Meanwhile, Lane took to her Twitter account to express: “Honored to fill some big, wildly talented shoes and step in as the fierce and loving Brook Lynn Quartermaine. Working alongside such gifted actors and a kind=-hearted crew on such a legendary show has been a career milestone… So happy to be on board!!

Lane has appeared in American Horror Story, NCIS, All American, and 9-1-1 to name a few.
