In another shocker from General Hospital, according to Soap Opera Digest,  the former Bold and the Beautiful star, Ronn Moss, has signed on to appear on the ABC soap opera and will begin to air this week!

UPDATED:  This afternoon On-Air On-Soaps learned that Moss is making an appearance on GH.  As to how long he will actually be on the soap, a representative had no comment at this time.

Moss, for over 25 years played the central role of B&B’s Ridge Forrester.  Since departing the series a few years ago, Moss has concentrated on other projects including his music and recently also filmed episodes of Gregori J. Martin’s web series, The  Bay.

No further word on what role Moss he will play in Port Charles,  or further details at this time, but we will have updates on this story throughout the day as it warrants.

What do you think of this shocker? Moss to GH? Who will he play?  Is he going to sing at the Nurses Ball? Or, is it completely unrelated? Weigh-in!

Maybe they’re spinning half the characters off to a new soap.

They can name the spinoff “All My Children Have One Life to Live”.

LMFAO!!!

you will regret saying that about Michelle. I am sick of newbies, as well but this lady, if she stays around will win you over. She can act! GH has brought in some real cardboard actors in the past year but Ms. Stafford will tear the house down!

I agree, Michelle Stafford is an excellent actress! She will only make GH better if she stays around long enough! Wish she would return to Y&R though!
It’s not the same without Phyllis!

I loved her as Phyllis and wish she was returning to Y&R but I really don’t care if they bring on Meryl Streep, the GH cast is so bloated its ridiculous. Vets disappear for weeks sometimes months at a time yet they keep bringing on newbies and not just random new characters who support those vets but instead its GH vets who wind up supporting them and getting scraps. I watch every day but I am really getting fed up. Its not about Michelle Stafford its just that its TOO MUCH and now Ron Moss…really GH??

I don’t know what to think about this but considering that he’s going to start airing this week i’m surprised they were able to keep it quiet.His character may have something to do with the Nurse’s Ball and only be on for a few episodes.

Moviegal

Moviegal

That was my thinking as well – that he will be on for the Nurse’s Ball, and probably only for a few episodes.

I could see him playing opposite Lucy as a difficult choreographer or something comedic like that.

he is a musician so maybe he is just there as a difficult singer butting heads with Lucy.

Mary SF

The article doesn’t state if he is on contract on just a temp role on for few airings– so it is hard to react to the news. If he is contract then this latest addition just might be the straw that breaks the camels back for long time viewers, fed up with newbies. If he is a recast of known character they might be more forgiving. If he is only on for a short stay then it might lure some fans from his B&B days to check out GH, which could help the show without losing long term viewers in… Read more »

I could see him playing Dr. Jeff Webber what do you think?

Guest
jimh(leave it to beaver)

He should play Jeff Webber or Jimmy Lee Holt…at least a character we are familiar with who has history and ties to the show…or maybe he is the doctor taking care of Nina…Dr. Jeff Webber taking care of Nina? I think PP was right when they claimed ABC was trying to create a mega soap…The Titanic of soaps!!! And if this keeps up with the constant newbies it too will end in disaster!!!

yes I agree with you, now bring hunter tylo on gh, and Billy Miller as the new Jason Quartermaine that would make my day. Oh also recast Robin Scorpio Drake with Elizabeth Hendrickson soon to be ex chloe young and the restless. What about Marj Dusay as the new Audry Hardy, that would make my day.

I THINK ITS GREAT THE MORE THE MERRIER…Newbies is what makes a soap. Our GH vets are on so little because they are into other projects. No contract, less air time. Welcome Ron Moss…

mfarris70
Guest
mfarris70

Finally a voice of reason! People forget that every character on GH and just about every other soap was a hated “newbie” at one time. I remember as a kid my babysitter threatened to quit watching because she thought Luke, Laura and Bobbie, the “newbies,” were taking over the show. Now viewers complain that we don’t see enough of them.

harry
Guest
harry

No, no, a thousand time no. Back in the early 90’s we were introduced to 5 new characters–Sonny, Karen, Stone, Jagger and Brenda. They all worked because they were connected to core characters. They enhanced the storylines and did not negate the potential storylines of established characters. Moreover, they were introduced slowly, we were given their backstory and we grew to care about these characters. Ron fast food approach to character introduction is forced and the end result is most fans do not have time to invest emotions into them.

boes
Guest
boes

Newbies used to be introduced slowly – as were the ones you reference. They didn’t come on and dominate story from their first day. You might remember some other newbies from shortly before that time – the Ekerts, who came on and ate the show, all to give Geary a different character to play from Luke. They bombed terribly and were all gone little more than a year later. Soaps are a “continuing story”, and that means continuation with characters as well as storylines. All these newbies, even the ones who may count down the line, are too many too… Read more »

Bizlet

Soaps that have been on the air 51 years need to change casts and SL if they are going to survive people don’t always like change, but sometimes you just need to sit back and watch where the story goes.

harry

Who said Ron Moss was going to dominate, Farris? No one,. Boes said that the wave of new characters have dominated. While the Q’s have been listed on the endangered species list, the Westbourne family continues to prolerate. And Bizlet, no one is objecting to change in of itself. But for the last year we have had a huge influx of new characters which we have never seen before. It’s not change or new characters in of itself which we oppose, it’s how badly it’s being handled. New characters like Sabrina are foisted on us without an introduction and we… Read more »

Jimmy

I swear I might lose it if Billy Miller or Michael Muhney are cast as Jason or Elizabeth Hendrickson is cast as Robin. They are all great actors, but seriously, GH does NOT need any more characters right now and if anything, I would love to see all three actors back at Y&R. I was hoping Michelle Stafford would return as Phyllis but it doesn’t look like that’ll happen any time soon now. And personally, I don’t think Ronn Moss can act at all, he was on B&B for 25 years and there was no improvement whatsoever in all that… Read more »

Sean Kanan, Rick Hearst, Maura West, Laura Wright, William DeVry and Emme Rylan were all CBS soap stars and they are all great actors. I do agree, though, that GH does not need more characters. I love Michelle Stafford and I wish she had returned to Y&R as Phyllis, but Nina has been mentioned SO much over the last few months it was pretty clear the character was going to be on the show eventually. As for Ronn Moss, I’m stumped. I have no clue who he will play or why he is needed. I don’t like him as an… Read more »

Me and you said the same thing to Mary…RM as Dr. Jeff Webber…perhaps Jeff is the doctor taking care of Nina(to bad they cant make Monica Ninas mom and reunite Jeff and Monica who were once married to each other)…i just hope RM isnt a recast Noah Drake!!!

I was wrong RM’s wife said it was just an appearance he is busy doing other things. Her quote was not to believe everything we read!

Too many idiots running the soaps these day, with no clue what the viewers want to see. That idiot ruining the Young and the Restless is driving away their best performers, and the idiots at GH is picking them up. WTF??? I’m sick of all these washed up soap stars ruining other shows. I was ill to hear Michelle Stafford was coming to GH, now Ron Moss? Why? Uuugghh! After 36 years of GH, I’m getting a little sick of watching it and hoping it goes the way of All My Children and One Life To Live…and put us all… Read more »

You’re right, Jill Phelps is ruining Y&R. After Michelle Stafford, Billy Miller and Michael Muhney left, a lot of viewers did too. Now Elizabeth Hendrickson is leaving too. And it seems as though all these actors have been rumored to be joining GH since their Y&R departures. Personally, I like the idea of MS as Nina. Her scenes with Micheal Easton and Maura West especially, should be amazing. And even though it’s frustrating to see changes being made to a show that you aren’t necessarily in favour of, cancellation is 100 times worse. For the past year and a half… Read more »

I don’t really wish for a cancellation. I honestly believe the bozos running the soaps really know nothing about viewer loyalty. After 36 years, you really think I’d quit watching? I had to put up with some pretty stupid storylines much worse than today’s, like the freezing of he world, and Anna and alien from outer space. Or that stupid Asian storyline in the 80s. I don’t care for recasting, serial soap hoppers, and executive producers on a firing spree. That kind of stuff drives me away! I actually love GH, but it’s seen some much better days!

This show no longer remotely resembles General Hospital.

Yes, he might very well be a thawed out Stavros.

Ronn was in a 70s rock bank called Player. They had a #1 hit “baby Come Back.” I think Ronn, with or without Player, is performing at the NB. As long as that is it, I am fine with it. Will bring back memories. His wife has already hinted that it is for a musical performance. I’ll bet Lucy was either a Player groupie back in the day, or knows the band and will ask them to reunite for a good cause.

Only judging by his work on B&B, I’m not so thrilled with this casting. But maybe he’ll surprise us. Maybe it is a short term May sweeps role. Maybe he’s involved with Fluke?

I would quit watching the show if that happens. That would be absolutely awful and if that’s what the show is going to do, I will be sorely disappointed and very pissed. I’m hoping Luke turns out to be Bill Eckert, no more mask garbage! It worked with Fasion/Duke and Obrecht/Anna but no more!

Just saying, I know everyone has a theory but he could be a new villian or a recast villian and not bill eckcart but who freeking knows!

Guest

Seeing as how Ron is popular in the music arena, this is probably something to do with the Nurses Ball and only temporary. It doesn’t say that he’s on contract or anything, so simmer down ppl. He needs to head back to BOLD and snatch up KKL, sorry, Thorsten Kaye, but he is the “real” Ridge, there is no way that Ridge would hookup with Katie, gross!!!!

Jimmy
Guest
Jimmy

Actually I like Thorsten Kaye MUCH better than Ronn Moss as Ridge, he can actually act whereas Ronn couldn’t! And I really hope he’s only a temp on GH because the last thing the show needs is another contracted newbie, especially one who can’t act.

richard
Guest
richard

I like Thorsten Kaye, just not as Ridge!! I’m a huge Bridge fan and I love KKL!!! They never gave her and nuRidge a chance to develop, Ronn’s acting was stiff to say the least but his scenes and chemistry with Hunter Tylo and KKL was/is off the charts!!! I bet this is a temp role on GH. Now recast Phyllis with Jamie Luner!!!

Right on, Richard! No matter his shortcomings in the acting skills arena, RM was Ridge Forrester personified….I will always consider his “pretty boy” to be the real thing as opposed to the current version of “Neanderthal Ridge.”

Spot on, this is almost embarrassing. After hiring big names recently, like Maura West, William DeVry, Donna Mills and now Michelle Stafford, they go and bring on Ronn Moss? Why are they lowering the talent bar so much? This guy couldn’t act for 25 years on B&B yet they kept him on. Now Thorsten Kaye is doing a much better job and it’s only been 5 months! GH really goofed on this one.

Hey, Huey, Louie and Mo: People have the right to complain about a soap opera which they’ve most likely been watching since they were mere wee ones. You call them haters ( a tired, overused and idiotic term) but don’t you see that they (we) are actually coming from a place of love and our collective complaints demonstrate viewers’ frustration and a desire to see GH get better? Rather than employ the love it or leave it mantra why don’t you take note that a great majority of GH fans are unhappy with the direction GH is heading. You cannot… Read more »

Ron Carlivati is all over Twitter and BELIEVE ME…he’s all over the message boards too. He knows what long time fans and thinking and he’s doing all he can to change GH into a soap for a new generation of watchers. It all comes down to Networks wanting to attract younger viewers and in doing so older viewers are alienated. They know it.

Hey su000000000000000000000…..Please enlighten me: Exactly why does this (or any other) soap board require an in-house “physicist?” Unless we are speaking of particulate matter, gravity, electromagnetics, thermodynamics, nuclear energy or a host of other scientific subjects that fall under the umbrella term of “physics”, there really should be no need for expertise in this area…..certainly not to discuss and debate the intricacies of daytime drama!

It seems GH is becoming amerry-goround for soap favorites. I should be glad as these are actors/performers I do enjoy and miss on my screens. Oh, would there be more programs on which they could appear. That said, I do not want GH to be a jewelry box of cameos. I like the show but I am growing weary of the cavalcade of characters and the lack of humanity over special events and speed plotting.

General Hospital

The Cast of General Hospital: The Alzheimer’s Storyline – Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

General Hospital’s depiction of the battle of Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects the dying, and the loved ones they leave behind, came to its heartbreaking conclusion this past week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Led by storyline standouts: Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Max Gail (Mike), who once again acted their hearts out in their final scenes together, the entire ensemble of actors who were part of this storyline each had their moments and each delivered which made Mike’s passing all the more poignant.

In a first since we started giving out our weekly kudos several years ago, Michael Fairman TV is giving our Power Performance of the Week to the cast of GH who participated in last week’s scenes for their riveting work.

From Laura Wright’s beautiful goodbye scene as Carly with Mike, where she dreams of him telling her she is a ‘daughter to him”, to Steve Burton’s all-knowing Jason, who tells Mike he will take care of Sonny and not to worry, to Michael (Chad Duell) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) picturing how key moments of their life would look with Mike being witness to it, and the advice he would give his grandchildren, to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finding out that Mike is dying while being so far away from his family – each of these beats brought even more heart-tugging moments to the ending of Mike’s journey.

Even the actors who played a part in Mike’s care were touching as Vernee Watson’s Stella prepares Sonny on how to help Mike pass before saying her final goodbye to her friend.  Then there was Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), who helped Carly and Sonny through Mike’s last moments at Turning Woods, who was also trying to keep it together through his sadness. Brando (Johnny Wactor) showed up at Turning Woods too, trying to make peace with the death he saw in the war in Afghanistan and now losing Mike.

Of course, there was the surprise moment where Mike is met by his late daughter Courtney and escorted to heaven that both Alicia Leigh Willis and Max Gail played so beautifully without saying hardly a word.

But in the end, it was Maurice Benard who showed us the devastation and acceptance of a son having to let his father go, while trying to make peace with their troubled past that was acting at its best, and perhaps some of the finest in his storied daytime career  – and there was Max Gail – the centerpiece of the storyline – who’s emotional heart was seen in all the scenes last week with the actors as the characters visualized moments with Mike.  Throughout the entire story, Gail played the tragedy of a human being trapped within this horrific disease with brilliance.  He will be missed.

So, what do you think of our choice of the cast of General Hospital for this week’s Power Performance of the Week?  Share your comments below.

Viewers saw a hand of someone that is behind the kidnapping, and that Emma Samms made a return to GH in her signature role of Holly Sutton.

Samms, debuted on GH back in 1982, and has come and gone, and come back again to the ABC daytime drama series.  She last appeared back on it in 2015.
