On today’s November 20th episode of General Hospital, there will be a new look to TJ Ashford when Tajb Bellow takes over the role from Daytime Emmy-nominated Tequan Richmond.

As viewers know, and first reported by Daytime Confidential, Richmond landed a lead role in the upcoming series on BET called Boomerang.  

Now, with Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Jordan’s (Briana Nicole Henry) wedding right around the corner, of course, it makes sense that TJ will be back on the canvas.

As for Bellow, his previous credits include The Ben Carson StoryK.C. Undercover, and Bosch.

Richmond has played the role since 2012.  Soap Opera Digest announced the casting switcheroo.

Bellow tweeted on the announcement of his joining GH, “So excited to be joining the family!”

So, looking forward to seeing the character of TJ back in the mix in Port Charles? Comment below.

“Now, with Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Jordan’s (Briana Nicole Henry) wedding right around the corner, of course, it makes sense that TJ will be back on the canvas.” Really? Why? When was the last time that we saw TJ? We’ll see him at the wedding, and then he’ll be MIA for the next six months to make room for Peter, Sasha, Willow, etc. November sweeps are boring and tanking the ratings. Ryan is a dullard (and I LOVE Jon Lindstrom). We haven’t seen Lucy, Felicia, or Mac. But, Laura is kissing Peter’s “heiny” because he owns “The Invader.” Apparently, now… Read more »

AVP, is it just me or is Peter becoming more repulsive by degrees? I CAN’T STAND the guy with his smarmy attitude, lousy wardrobe, and “publishing genius”. Anyone who’d put Lulu in charge of “serious journalism” needs serious help. Still don’t get why he’s on. Or Sasha. Or new T.J. Or Stella. Or……

isn’t he being the brat… lets see him in another elevator drop mode get sketchy. I found it laughable as Anna digs in on Valentin, @the Metro Bar… “don’t touch my son” ????? they have yet to “bond” yet Anna is clawing her way back…. LOL.. should she ? I have zero interest in her character. it’s so embarrassing watching Finn HAM it up … for all the bumbling his character is… AND his LEADING MAN theatrics ( he’s stealing Franco act ) w/ not an ounce of chemistry… he sure takes the lead in stud muffin’ing Anna in bed.… Read more »

@first glance… I thought Alex Rodriguez… GOOD FOR HIM, the actor… getting this opportunity. OK perhaps we’ll see more of Molly… @GH tune down her know it all

I liked well enough the ex-Jordan chemistry with TJ.. she seemed to have a softer touch with ; and the spats with Stella seemed MORE believable.

GUESS that’s my 2 cents on the recast. Hopefully THIS TJ will smooth that out.

Tajb Bellow ” IF – you are – connecting; making contact
with Stella… that’s 1/2 the battle… chemistry with Molly the other 1/2

with Jordan and Curtis.. icing

I sorry to see Tequan go but happy he’s got another gig. I will say that this TJ looks a good bit like his on-screen mother. Good luck to him.

Tequan was a QT in nothing role, so why even recast it?

Agreed. TPTB don’t have a clue. That’s why the ratings are in the toilet. – nothing against the recast or actor.

Am liking the new TJ, but too bad he’s giving the mother away, he’s only known about five minutes.
I am guessing poor Kiki will not make the wedding, as the Ava crazy Ryan , has other plans for her.
How sadistic of them to have her murdered on Thanksgiving day.

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?
