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!

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!

Passions fans remember that in story, Kerr’s character Whitney was in a relationship with the character of Chad (Donn Swaby and later, Charles Divins).  Chad was believed to be Whitney’s half-brother, but later it was revealed to not be the case, and the duo ended up tying the knot.

Since Passions, Kerr has been seen on Hawaii Five-0, Westworld, and True Blood to name just a few TV appearances.

So excited to hear that Brook is coming to GH? Who do you think she will play and be involved with in story on the soap? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Lucas Gives Wiley To Michael; While Willow Learns the Devastating Truth

Friday’s episode of General Hospital, brought the highly-emotional moments viewers had been waiting for all-week long; following the year and a half reveal that Nelle (Chloe Lanier) and Brad (Parry Shen) engineered a baby switch with Willow’s (Katelyn MacMullen) dead baby, Wiley being passed off as Michael (Chad Duell) and Nelle’s newborn, Jonah, and Jonah being raised by Brad and Lucas (Ryan Carnes) as Wiley.  Now with the truth out, it was time for two of the heaviest beats of the story to be played out.

When Willow comes to at the hospital with Chase (Josh Swickard) by her side, needless to say she is dazed and freaking out that Nelle took Wiley.  Chase tells her he has some things to tell her and it’s not going to be easy to hear. Willow braces herself and then Chase tells her the story of the baby switch and how her baby died a SIDS death while at Brad and Lucas’ and then how the babies were switched.

In a heartbreaking and powerful performance from Katelyn MacMullen (yes, she is our pick for “Power Performance of the Week”), Willow struggles to come to grips with the truth and starts to realize all of Brad’s machinations, as she thinks back to herself how could she do that to her son … to trust him with Brad, only to have the little infant die.  The devastation played by MacMullen, whose Willow, now must realize her baby never lived the full and happy young life she thought, was gut-wrenching.

Meanwhile, in yet another top-notch performance, William deVry (Julian) showed the pain and the need to unburden himself as Julian talks to his sister. Ava (Maura West) and spills what happened.   He goes so far to admit to Ava that he knew what Brad had done. Ava cannot believe he did not go to Sonny (Maurice Benard) right away with this Intel, but Julian just could not do this to his son, Lucas and rip the baby from his arms.  Julian says he will face-off with Sonny and not leave town, if it comes to that.   Ava says they have to come up with a way to silence Brad … before Brad gives up Julian’s part in the whole baby cover-up.

And in yet another masterful performance, we have to give it up to Chloe Lanier.  Who can play Nelle and spin stories and the tears so well, that if you did not know this pathological liar you would think she is telling the truth. When in opposing holding cells at the PCPD, Nelle lays it on about Brad so that the guard can hear them. She blames Brad for being the instigator in the baby switch and taking advantage of her – a distraught new mother, confused and dazed on the route where the baby switch happened.  It works! Brad is moved to a different cell and thinks look very grim for him.  Nelle smiles through her crocodile tears!

Photo: JPI

Then, in what we all knew had to happen, and even so, was still as heartbreaking as ever; Lucas spends his final moments with Wiley as his father in the kitchen at the Corinthos’ along with Bobbie (Jackie Zeman) and Carly (Laura Wright).  Lucas starts to tell his mother and sister, all the things Wiley needs and likes, such as having a story read to him.  All of this brings the tears as they know Lucas has to give the child back to Michael; who has been robbed of a year and half as the baby’s rightful father.

Michael tells Lucas they will work this out, so Lucas remains a constant in Wiley’s life. He also tells Sonny and Sasha (Sofia Matteson) he feels so badly for Lucas, but they tell him to be happy for this chance to have the son he grieved for.   In the end, a tear-filled Lucas hands Wiley to Michael as everyone watches on in sadness for one father … and joy for the other.  Ryan Carnes was poignant in the scenes; as was Chad Duell.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Michael Blasts Brad As The Truth About Wiley Comes Out

FINALLY! On Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, Lucas (Ryan Carnes) memory is jogged just enough that he clearly remembers Brad’s (Parry Shen) shocking words before their car crash; where Brad confessed that Wiley was Nelle (Chloe Lanier) and Michael’s (Chad Duell) biological son.

At the Corinthos home, Lucas stands up and announces to Michael that Wiley is actually his believed to be dead son, Jonah. Carly’s (Laura Wright) mouth drops and then she takes over getting to the root of the truth of the baby switch.

Brad is cornered and left with no choice but to fess up. He explains how Wiley died when he was no longer breathing, and how he was driving with him, when he ended up on the route where Nelle left Michael to die in the car he was driving (Michael recalls this bit of Intel in a flashback).

Then, Brad explains how Nelle appeared with her newborn baby and claimed the whole thing was engineered by Nelle …  and how he was so upset and panicked, that he went along with her plan.

Michael lets Brad have it for all of his lies and machinations, and the pain it has inflicted on so many people for over a year and half.  How on earth could he do that? Carly also lays into him.

Meanwhile, Sasha (Sofia Matteson) has urgently called Chase (Josh Swickard), who leaves “Wiley” and Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) behind, and heads to the Corinthos’ where he hears the whole sad truth about the baby switch.

With Chase gone, Nelle goes looking for “Wiley” who is with Willow, and the two get into a major throwdown catfight.  Nelle comes out the victor and goes to get her baby ready to leave town with her son.

So, what did you think of how the truth finally came out?  What did you think of Michael’s tirade on Brad? What do you think will happen next? Comment below.
