Roger Howarth On His Future With General Hospital

Photo: ABC

If you have caught today’s episode of General Hospital, you know that in a struggle for the gun with Peter (Wes Ramsey), none other than Franco (Roger Howarth) was shot and killed.

However, Soap Opera Digest is reporting exclusively that Franco’s portrayer, Roger Howarth is not done with the ABC daytime drama series.

The Daytime Emmy winner came to GH from One Life to Live in the role of Todd Manning in 2012, and then took over the role of Franco (originally played by James Franco) in 2013, when Prospect Park took over the rights to One Life to Live’s characters from ABC.  Those rights have since returned to the network.

In speaking with SOD on his future in Port Charles, Howarth shared: “I’m really excited. I have great faith in the people who think of these things. I’ve been in good hands so far.”

Roger will be taking a break on-screen from GH for awhile, as we await just whom Howarth will play next.

In the meantime through April 9th, Howarth is now on Cameo with 100% of his proceeds going to help FeedingAmerica.org.

So, who do you want Roger to play next? Todd, Franco (maybe he did not really die?) or someone else completely new? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.

Todd definitely

Supposedly he is dead, and Roger Howarth will be taking on another role when he returns in a month or so.

I’m in shock after watching Franco bleed out and say his last (?) words to Liz…I really don’t know what to think. I hope Roger will really be staying around. Maybe as a revived Franco, a returning Todd, or a surviving Drew?

Steve
Guest
Steve

Great that he hold her he loved her and the boys, but in typical soap fashion, couldn’t sneak in “Peter did it” or “check phone”

Satan
Guest
Satan

Or for that matter, he might have mentioned that to Jason, before Liz even showed up.

Jason should obviously know who did this. Since he was looking for Frodd because Frodd was looking for Whiny Heiny. Pretty easy to do the math there.

Violet Lemm
Guest
Violet Lemm

OMG, Jason only needs his gun tested against the bullets in Franco to show it didn’t kill Franco. They didn’t check Jason for GSR on his hands. I know the real police do this with someone at the scene of the crime, and they are allowed to question a suspect with their lawyer present. I don’t watch CSI, NCIS, Law & Order for nothing.

Remember that Connie wrote “AJ” in her own blood after she was shot… It just took them a while to figure out it stood for Ava Jerome, not AJ Quartermaine. They could have had Franco paint “Peter” on a canvas or two. Where did the gun come from? Was it the same gun Peter got out of his safe? Why would Peter have a gun in the room of his hotel room that was just for getting ready for his wedding? That’s odd. I was hoping this was yet another setup Franco didnt tell Elizabeth about… No time in this… Read more »

Peter erased the confession from Franco’s phone. Franco should have just hit send and not told Peter anything. Like when Brook Lynne told Nell she was going to call someone but had not yet.

Steve
Guest
Steve

Crazy Connie could’ve easily wrote AVA as it’s only one more letter. Heck, Diana Taylor wrote “Anne”. Wait that was Heather, no actually Alice that did that.

Soap writers forget that viewers watch crime shows and are familiar with procedures such as gun shot residue and ballistics — two things that would’ve immediately cleared Jason.

According to above story from R.H he will be coming back as someone, if not himself by some miracle and the first one I thought of is Drew. I have heard nothing of Billy Miller coming back.

You know, Violet, I can accept RH as Drew, but only because I keep hoping Billy Miller will someday return to daytime as ANY CHARACTER. I miss him every day. I just hope Peter Puke’s demise will be as slow and unpleasant as his stay in Port Charles has been for me.

The call is out for Dr.Rolf, courtesy of DOOL.

Satan

Well… this is ABC… so they wouldn’t be bringing Rolf in. They would bring in the dude from All My Children who did the same thing with zombies. Who also happens to be one of Anna Devane’s ex husbands, I think (sorry, not an AMC fan, but this is what I remember reading somewhere) I really hope they don’t go there though. Frodd needs to stay dead, and OLTL/AMC characters need to stay out of Port Charles. If they’re going to bring Roger Howarth back, only do it as a new character completely free of the “baggage” of both Todd… Read more »

I always think of Dr.Rolf when something is mentioned about bringing someone back from the dead. The “dude” you mentioned from AMC is Vincent Irizarry whom I have been longing to have on GH ever since he was killed off on DOOL as bad boy Deimos. Would love to see he and Finola Hughes together again, Finn who??

Rebecca1
Guest

Todd Manning was a beloved character and at least has a brief connection to GH with his short stint so it would make sense if they wanted to bring him back instead if giving Roger a third character. I’m interested to see which way they go. Personally, I’d rather he not play Drew as I loved Billy in the role. Unless that door is permanently closed I’d rather they leave it open. Just hoping it’s an ongoing character. Still, I thinking killing off Franco was a bad creative move. His relationship with Cam was the best father/son relationship I think… Read more »

William was taken off contract?

Steve
Guest
Steve

Likely his own decision not to renew. Turning 18, he would’ve been offered an adult contract but William may be going off to college in the fall. We’ve all seen how talented the young man is and shouldn’t be surprised that he’s not planning to be in soaps for the long haul.

Masterful acting. Writing with dialog that tore my heart to shreds and the scenes flipping from Liz/Franco to Scotty/Cam who were unaware and trying to figure out how to have Franco fight to live. Masterfully done, well written & thank goodness he lives. I’d probably have walked away from watching if I didn’t know he was returning. Silly, but they are such a unique an unable to be copied romantic pair and family that it would be difficult to try and watch them try to recreate it.

Phil

Tina
Guest

Me too. Seeing Franco die devastated me. Poor Liz, Scotty and Liz’s boys. I’m glad if Roger is returning, but I don’t want him to be gone any, or for Franco to have been killed by the most evil character on the show. Peter should have died not Franco.

Linda M Smith

Don’t worry. Whiny Heiny’s express train to Hell is coming soon. Now that Maxie’s dumped his ass, I would be surprised if he survives this week. Though I’m not sure the “Friday cliffhanger” would still be airing on Friday after the three consecutive Wednesdays that got dropped in January, followed by the missing week of shows from the ImOrangement 2.5 trial in February.

Let’s put it this way… plan on raising a pint of Guinness on St. Patty’s day to toast Heinrich’s arrival in Hell. It’s gotta be a done deal by then!

Awww…..I want him to play Franco since Liz, Scott and the boys love Franco so much. Maybe it’s easy for me since I’ve only known “good Franco.”. I wasn’t watching GH during the “serial killer Franco” storyline. Also, I think Roger is a superb actor and I enjoy seeing him on GH. I love any time he and Kin have scenes together. I love his wit. I will miss him and I hope his hiatus isn’t too long.

I would say probably Todd the audience could never really accept Franco even though I thought he and Becky had chemistry. I don’t watch it enough to know the back history of Franco maybe that’s why when I did watch I never got that worked up over Franco and Liz who knows my compliment to GH is they have done a great job with the social distancing issue

Nita W
Guest
Nita W

You totally missed how hard he worked just to get Liz to talk to him, and the silly sweet things he did to convince her to finally go on a date. It was a long slow process, but he never gave up because he already loved her so much. Their love story was epic and can never be redone. The absolute best couple on the show is no more.

Kay

You misunderstood I never saw James Franco portrayal where he did all the dirty deeds anyway I had no bad feelings so I enjoyed Becky and Roger . To bad Becky will probably head to the back burner now

Phil

I would rather he play Franco! I loved Friz! I will be upset if they get Liz back with Nicholas now too. Those two have been a snooze fest no matter who is in the Nicholas role. I would accept him as Drew but I still want Franco back.

Steve
Guest

I fear he will be a recast Drew Cain. I doubt they’ll want to bring Todd back full time.

Roger is one of the truly finest daytime actors. He took Franco from a much-disliked character to one that’s likable for some and palatable to others.

So, Howarth will likely join Michael Easton in playing at least three characters on the show. Will there be an acknowledgment of the similarity in appearance with the new character, or will it be a Silas/Finn switch in which the common looks are never mentioned?

I’m good with either Todd or a new character. As long as they pair him back up with Liz. The chemistry between them is great.

Satan
Guest

My prediction is that they’re going to create a new character for him. Frodd never worked as a character. The 666 different redemption stories they tried to write for him proved that, and none of them accomplished it. Ironically, the best thing the character ever did was clubbing Whiny Heiny over the head with a crowbar and then threatening the coward with torture to get a confession out of him. And as we saw, even that ultimately did not end well for him. So let Frodd come to Hell and meet his fate. Return of Todd Manning?? No, that would… Read more »

Franco, easily could have reverted to Drew..
Drew is in Franco, so to say..
It could have been done in a blink..
Franco would now be Drew– Drew was loved.

Satan
Guest
Satan

He can’t “revert” to Drew, because he never WAS Drew. Just a temporary delusion caused by a mad scientist experiment gone wrong (not like the other instances of the same mad scientist experiment went “right” either). I don’t think it would work to swap him in as a recast of the ACTUAL Drew either, because Drew is supposed to be passable as Jason’s twin brother (albeit with a surgically altered face) and I don’t think Roger Howarth fits that description. (Billy Miller barely did) Drew will probably return soon enough. Probably as Billy Miller, since I don’t think he’s doing… Read more »

I kind of hope that it is Franco that comes back because I don’t want Scotty to lose another child. At the same time, I like the idea of him being related to Jimmy Lee Holt. That would be interesting.

Bring backJimmy Lee. Didnt they mentioned him a few weeks ago?

Steve
Guest
Steve

Don’t recall a recent Jimmy Lee reference. That wing of the Q family has been shut closed for years. Carly referenced Jimmy Lee around the time of Edward’s death. Think the response was that Edward bought him off years ago.

As Monica is the only Q who’d actually remember Jimmy Lee, unfortunately there’s no incentive to bring him back. Neither Tracy nor Ned ever met Jimmy Lee.

On a side note, Steve Bond was stunning back in the day.

Satan
Guest
Satan

Yes, but the Jeromes were completely extinct for at least 20 years before they suddenly showed up again. So compared to that, a long AWOL branch of an existing family tree would be easy enough to resurface. Whether Jimmy Lee himself, or his son – who would most likely be Roger Howarth’s new character. On another Quartermaine related note, they could always bring back the Ward branch of the family tree as well. Maybe Sonny’s new friends with the bar in PA are somehow related to old Mary Mae?

Certainly would be better than any additional members of the Faison-Westbourne family!

Steve
Guest
Steve

The offshoot Quartermaine branch I’d prefer to see is a never before mentioned offspring of AJ. Maybe Nikki Langton left PC pregnant? Someone with Q blood to show Michael what a wimp he actually is.

Satan
Guest
Satan

Oddly enough, way back in the middle of that ridiculous relish story (where the Frodd character was introduced) there was a young African American character working at ELQ who seemed at the time to be Michael’s potential rival for leadership at the company. There was speculation at the time that this young man might turn out to be the offspring of AJ & Keesha Ward (from the branch of the Ward family NOT related to the Q’s) as AJ & Keesha were a “thing” for a while after AJ bashed his brother Jason’s brain into a tree. At the time… Read more »

I watched OLTL since Megan and Jake. Them and Tina and Cord were my favorites UNTIL Todd. I love him and I admire RH as an amazing actor. HOWEVER, OLTL characters have been assassinated on GH and their history destroyed so I don’t want them to bring Todd in if they’re going to do him like the end of OLTL. I floved Frizz. I’m so upset this happened HOWEVER the relationship with Liz and the kids were the only thing great about Franco. So I hope he stays dead. I loved Drew.

I’m glad Roger will be sticking around GH. I’ve really enjoyed him on the show for the past 9 years. Particularly the past few years as the Franco and Elizabeth relationship blossomed, and I loved the father/son dynamic that developed between Franco and Cameron. Roger brought out the best in William Lipton, who has become a very talented actor right before our eyes. I mean, the kid made me tear up watching him get his head shaved. That’s talent. Whether Roger is back as the not dead Franco, Todd Manning, or yet another character change, I’ll be watching.

I am very upset that they killed offFranco. He was a complex and interesting character. He had interesting interactions with much of the cast. Haven’t Elizabeth and her children gone through enough? This was one of the stupidest moves I’ve ever seen.I Much rather have Peter die. Though at be time I liked the character. I now can pity him but have no use fit him. Whereas I mourn the loss of Franco for Elizabeth and her children. Why give him a tumor and that storyline if you were going to kill him with a gun.

Rodd
Guest
Rodd

I read this was going to happen on some junky soap news site so I didn’t give it much merit. However, I have to say I am furious about Franco being killed! I’m a day behind in viewing, but I hope this is just so he can go to Heaven and meet with Cameron’s father, who will send him back to fight for his life. Also, while I would welcome Roger back as Todd Manning, I really would prefer him as Franco so he and Elizabeth can continue their love story. They are what I consider GH’s solid couple.

Satan
Guest

You really think Frodd went to Heaven??

Now that’s HELLarious!

As for Ghost Zander, he’s getting a “day pass” to go up and visit his son. I’m a reasonable Devil. The kid could use a visit from his old man… even though Zander was killed before Cam was born, so they never actually met before.

Please don’t get rid of Franco. Let the WSB doctor him back to health as they maneuver the takedown of Peter. I’m still expecting Kim Nero to come back to town with his young son that she birthed after the affair they had when Franco thought he was Drew. I was a big Todd fan when he was on OLTL from when he first came on the scene as a frat boy until that show went off the air. I have especially have enjoyed his character on General Hospital. Roger is just an incredible actor!

Kim is busy in Salem. Besides, they already said Julian was the father of her baby. Which was admittedly a dumb thing to establish with her & the kid completely off the campus and about two days before Julian was sent to Hell. But that was the story in either case.

Daytime Emmys Land Two-Year Deal At CBS; NATAS Reveals This Year’s Broadcast Set For June 25th

Some great news for daytime fans!  Following a deal announced today between National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) and CBS, the network now has a two-year deal to broadcast the Daytime Emmy Awards.

CBS will present this year’s 48th Annual Daytime Emm Awards, on Friday, June 25 (8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT), on the CBS Television Network and it will stream live and on demand on Paramount+.   This will mark the 15th time CBS has broadcast the Daytime Emmy Awards, more than any other network.

In addition, this is the first time since 2008 that one network will broadcast both the Daytime and Primetime Emmy awards in the same year. CBS last hosted both specials in 2005.

 

The Daytime Emmy Awards have recognized outstanding achievement in daytime television programming since 1974.  The awards are presented to programs broadcast between 2:00 AM and 6:00PM, as well as all forms of children’s television programming and certain categories of streaming and syndicated content.

NATAS also revealed today that this year’s Daytime Emmys are the most competitive ever, with more than 3,100 submissions featuring content that originally premiered in calendar-year 2020, judged by a pool of peer professionals from across the television industry.

The 48th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards will be produced by NATAS and Associated Television International (ATI), which produced Daytime Emmy Award ceremonies on The CW in 2009 and on CBS in 2010, 2011 and 2020. Adam Sharp and Steve Ulrich are executive producers from NATAS, while David McKenzie is executive producer and director from ATI.

So excited about the Daytime Emmys will return to network TV for two more years guaranteed, and that we have a date for this year’s presentation this summer? Comment below.

REPORT: Dan Feuerriegel is DAYS New EJ DiMera

Could Days of our Lives finally found their new EJ? Rumors have been circulating on the internet for weeks that the character of EJ DiMera may finally have a new face and a new actor portraying and heading back to Salem, especially since Sami (Alison Sweeney) is back on the canvas.
