Very excting news for Roger. I have been a fan of his since 1992. I say its about time Roger branch out and work in Primetime and in movies. Roger is an excellent actor. I can’t wait to watch him on Californication. Congrats Roger you deserve all the sucess in the world.:)

I hope so! He has more than proven himself as diverse and capable actor! I will follow him as I have always done, but I was first introduced to his talent when he played Todd. And it is my wish that he somehow continue that role. But, we all must grow and sometimes that means leaving somethings behind! Keep moving forward Roger and congrats!

Fantastic !! And on channels that I subscribe to.
I don’t like him as Franco so unfortunately I have not been watching GH as much lately.
Since FX Canada sacked AMC and OLTL from the network, I don’t get to see RH play Todd either….and I am not about to pay iTunes Canada 100 smacks for 50 episodes.
FTR I’d watch him in any prime time venture – he’s already got the series Prey and Dawson’s Creek under his belt.

Love him as Todd Manning on OLTL – hope he does this along with Californication. Must totally agree with you about the Franco thing – that is EPIC FAIL! Best of luck and much success to Roger Howarth.

Itll be interesting to see daytimes best actor in other roles especially primetime but didnt he do some primetime series years ago…im sure i saw him in something. Also Vincent(AMCs David) is another actor who should be doing some primetime shows. Lynne Herring(GH) too! Lynne would make a perfect guest appearance on Hot In Cleveland!

I think Roger Hogarth is a really great actor and wish him much success in his career. I just hope he will continue to stay on OLTL as Todd – he is soooo perfect playing that character. I do see him going on to Prime Time Shows and maybe even the Movies. Good luck to you, Roger, but don’t forget your soap opera fans …. we’re behind you all the way!!!!!!! We love YOU!!!!!!!

I absolutely adore RH in any role he plays. He is such a talented actor. I think the soaps only show a tiny bit of what he can do, so I am happy he is getting the opportunity to be on a different kind of show. This actor has never ceased to amaze me with his understanding and interpretations of the characters he portrays. He can play any role you throw at him and make you believe that he is really that guy. Hes witty, funny, scary, sincere, angry (sometimes all at the same time which is something not easily accomplished) and whatever else he needs to be to make us believe that “he is that guy.” Anyway, kudos RH.

Roger is an ubertalent for sure! He deserves to “make it” outside daytime, but he’s also spent 20 years mostly on daytime. One never knows; it’s possible to branch out after years of not really doing so. Good luck to him. No one deserves it more. I hope Roger will do some comedy, not drama. He’s a great comedic actor!

Californication is a very popular show..
It is well above an R rating, near an X .. (pay cable can be that way lol .
It is on showtime and I do not subscribe to Showtime , however- I can watch it online.
Looking forward to seeing RH do a R+ rating show lol ..

Way to go Roger!!! That is great news and he is very deserving! He’s very talented! However there are so many talented people on GH and the other soaps it is amazing they don’t get more gigs in primetime!

Good for him! I will watch him where ever he goes, but my very favorite tv character of all times is…and will always be…his portrayal of Todd Manning. I actually would like to see an evening sitcom starring him called the Mannings with a mix of darkness and humor, but I know that is just my dream. Congrats to Roger Howarth!

I hope that Roger stays on GH as he definitely has been an asset to GH and has helped boost its ratings. I also like him as Todd on OLTL which has been his best role. I don’t have Showtime so can’t watch him there. If he acts on prime time shows and in movies, I will watch. He is one of the best actors on soaps so I hope he stays.

I love it when deserving actors get work–but, gee, when the writers of GH insist that RH be on GH almost every day (when he has 2 other jobs)–and give another great, deserving (if anyone is!) actor Genie Francis 3 appearances in 3 months, something is definitely amiss.

I really enjoyed him as Todd Manning on OLTL and GH. great actor, but as Franco, it is not good, because I still see him as Todd Manning even though he is playing Franco !!! That was a big mistake… same for his daughter, KiKi, Star, dont like overlapping!! Fast forward is the solution. sorry

I’ve loved RH since 1992 & I’ve followed him to ATWT & GH. I’ll watch anything he is in. I think he is the best lead actor in daytime & he should be in prime time & movies. I would love to see him on The Following

RH has what it takes to be on major screens I’m so happy for him congrats, you have the best talent on daytime TV since John Stamos on GH, you are amazing you can play any role especially the narcissistic crazy SOB its about time daytime stars are getting recognized for the big screen we sure need great talent on screen cause some of these great big “STARS” are getting too old and I’m tired of seeing them on screen and I said some of them especially that short guy that jumped on Oprah’s sofa ugh!
Good luck Roger god bless!
