Thaao Penghlis To Return To General Hospital!

Courtesy/NBC

According to a tweet this afternoon from Thaao Penghlis, the actor is heading back to General Hospital to reprise the role of Victor Cassadine!

Penghlis tweeted, “Have been asked back to General Hospital to explore the new escapades of that charming but mischievous rogue Victor Cassadine. Stay tuned!”

So what will happen when Victor returns to Port Charles this time?  Will it have to do with Robin’s research work on Jason, Stavros and Helena?  Or, will it have to do with his past love, Dr. Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati)? Or, some new mysterious mission?

Let us know why you think Vic is heading back to town …  and if you are happy to hear of the return of Thaao!

Well GH likes to play ‘who ya daddy’ or momma…lol, so Victor needs to return so Nathan can finally meet his ‘daddy’…also it might have something to do with the return of Jason(Billy Miller) and Patricks wife Robin(Elizabeth Hendrickson)…ok folks im just guessing!!! LMAO!!!

SO happy for him to return. I love him as an actor, as well as Victor, who can be both menacing and hilarious. I hope he stays for a long time.

They have obviously set it up for Nathan to be Victor’s child with Obrecht, which I think is AMAZING. You can never have too many Cassadines, and it’ll be interesting to see how that also affects Nik/Britt.

Cannot wait! 🙂

Agreed….Victor was always my favorite Cassadine, and it’s a true shame it took so many years to have him return to GH. He should have been romancing and menacing the denizens of Port Charles (ala Tony Di Mera) long ago….although I am more than happy to have him back now as Dr. O’s erstwhile(?) beau, Nathan’s most likely daddy, and God only knows what else, I will still feel a bit robbed that we didn’t get Victor in both his and GH’s most prime decades.

He’s coming back with Robin and Billy Miller (nuJason)

I want him to return with Jason played by Michael Muhney!! The other Cassadines can stay frozen. They do not need to return. MM and BM is the only additions that FV needs to add to the show.

please ,no more Y&R Rejects.

MS, MW, BM and MR(Lulu) are not rejects, they are great actors that JFP is too dumb to notice because of her obsession with SB and trying to replace top actors with all of her FOJ’s. who could not act their way out of a paper bag. Y&R’s lost is GH’s gain.

Luv Thaao Penghlis!!
Victor Cassadine will return for his son James/Nathan ..

Dr. Liesl Obrecht played by the great Kathleen Gati and Victor are the parents of James now Nathan …

It will be a father son mother, story… more so than any other..

Patrick
Guest
Patrick

don’t forget Britt

have to add…

they may need to stear clear right quick… Nina from Silas and Sam…

Britt and Dr. O are good actors… who have never had a problem… throughout the whole cast… and with Nina with these two… even with Nathan…. throw in some Brad… and you have a nucleus that the production can strive for

ahem…. Kevin would be major stimuli for … this close knit talented “family”

Patrick
Guest
Patrick

ps: the GH production would be wise to steer clear of : Billy Miller as the nuJason… he could be a morgan or Q… and it wouldn’t save or add any thing….

imagine Billy Miller as Patrick younger brother recast Matt… played by the best… Jason Cook….

but… BM as Matt… would be tantamount to revitalizing… Dr. Patrick Drake as well….

imagine… Patrick and Matt…. vying for… the affections of : sisters/step sisters Britt and Nina

through the roof endorphins testosterone… making love

Patrick
Guest

have to throw ideas out their… other than… all the hoopla spiral no where… as Jason… the days of king pinning with Sonny as his henchman… are long gone the writers will not write for the Q’s… inasmuch as the fans scratch and claw for they didn’t do it for AJ adding him as matt… w/Patrick… would envelop with : Britta, Nina, Nathan, Dr. O, Madeleine, Nicholas see how many bases this covers…. it’s tiring and waning… time to close the chapter on Sonny… he’s better left supporting… with much respect… ie: example… he’s better featured like Luke and Tracy…… Read more »

Britta and Matt aka Billy Miller
Patrick and Nina

I’d throw in Nicholas and Kevin to stir – even Sabrina as this just helps everyone do their stuff…

this is a good start to steering away from those who think it’s a no go with :

Nina mixing in with Sam and SILAS : may be a waste of energy and talent pool

Nathan needs a recast if your going to put him with Thao, Katherine, and Michelle.

His scenes with Kathleen Gati were mesmerizing..Want to see more..He is Nathan’s father..A recast by Billy Miller is possible…Also, I am certain that he will be involve in the return of Jason, which can only be played by Mr Miller..he will be the perfect recast for Jason Morgan Quatermaine.

GH is on FIRE…It has lots of flaws but it entertains like crazy!!

Patrick
Guest

“…GH is on FIRE…It has lots of flaws but it entertains like crazy!!” I’ll reiterate… a LOT of flaws but rolls with it and goes far entertaining and short on intelligence quota but beware how beloved this genre be I hope we get to see some romance and fleshing out of humane for Dr. O as she’s on the threshold of weaning or mother hen’ing her brood… the affable able delish delight brain tantalize reverberate her being… with son and daughter… James/Nathan and Britta crosses to bear : I think not… she’s ahead of the game… plots the mundane eclipses… Read more »

Amen to the “a LOT of flaws” part, Patrick, but good golly, Ms, Gati is the sole saving grace of this regime and their endless parade of newbies! Her Dr. O. brings it to the canvas every time she appears, no matter how briefly…she always leaves us wanting more!!!! I am sooo ready for a proper storyline for this vexing vixen of vim and verve…grande dame, indeed!!!!

Robin is not returning.. Robin is not returning..
and why do so many believing Jason will return..
I do not see Jason returning..

It could be year or more IF it were even going to happen..

As of now the Jason character is dead and gone and not even a mention of him in any context.
.. do not hold your breath for a return of a Jason any time soon-
not going to happen .. 🙂

Jason has been mention…maybe not alive but the AMAZING DR. Robin left town to bring him back alive…Victor and Robin talked about this b4 she left so Jason was mentioned…i dont think he was dead…i think he was alive and suffering from amnesia all this time calling himself Billy Abbot…lol

On this past Friday’s Show, Patrick said he wasn’t a good as friend to Sam as she is too him, then Patrick flashed back to Robin saying she had to save Jason.

I never liked the Jason character and frankly I hate when actors come & go; it disrupts storyline too much. I say keep Robin gone and let Patrick move on already.

Happy to see Thaao return to GH? I’m overjoyed to have him back! Aren’t you happy too Michael? I think Victor could be involved in more than one storyline. He could come back with Jason Starvos and Helena and have the Cassadines be in power once again against the Jeromes and Sonny. He could come back for his son Nathan and his mother Dr O . Or give him a whole new love interest. Would love to see Victor and Ava join forces .Better yet give Thaao a contract ! Damn right I am happy to see Thaao back on… Read more »

Why does this casting news excite Ron Carlivati wAY more than it does the rest of us who WATCH the show?

harry
Guest

Johnny, Ron is that guy at the buffet line who fills his plate up with everything until it’s heaping over.
He can never eat all that food–his eyes are bigger than his stomach and all that food that he choose goes into the garbage can.
I would apply this buffet metaphor to his tendency to over cast GH.

Omar
Guest

In Ron C’s defense, he is the head writer NOT the Executive producer..Frank Valentine is the man in charge, and in his defense, overcasting GH, is the only way to add more viewers in my opinion..It works!! Sure it makes the show more watered down and we do not get to see certain characters day in and day out, but adding big daytime favorites from other shows, whether they are still on the air or not, will make viewers curious to see their favorite soap actors and that equals BIGGER ratings…I for one stop watching GH many years ago, but… Read more »

Well I am not falling for the spin— he is returning– for how long? A day, a week? They had all this hoopla about Donna Mills joining the cast and she was on for how long? A month at most with a lot of other stories crammed between her appearances. I am really weary of these “big” announcements, which amount to nothing really. Don’t get me wrong enjoy TP and like the character Victor, but a recurring character used merely as a way to move the plot, to my mind doesn’t equal a real cast member. So I will enjoy… Read more »

I miss my favorite Cassadine of all, Stefan Cassadine played only by the very talented Stephen Nichols! I hope Stephen comes back to GH someday, but if not, I hope he goes to another soap soon. Well, maybe not Y&R. He wasn’t a FOJ and therefore totally expendable to her on that show.

Happy ? Thaao is back to GH—- of course- overjoyed!!! Can’t wait to see Thaao back on my screen (where he belongs!!!) Looking forward to all the intriguing storyline potential here & hope to see more of Thaao’s Victor & Kathleen’s Dr.O . Hope this is not just another temporary tease. Would love to see Victor/Thaao in Port Charles indefinitely. No matter what will enjoy every moment. Thank you Mr. Carlivati, GH, & ABC!

Wish Thaao would come back to Days. With James, Allison, and Nick leaving, they are going to need some strong actors to come in to keep momentum up. Thaao is an excellent actor, and world be great to have him on again.

I agree. They a going to need some strong adult actors/characters to keep the show going strong!

Thats the good news. The better news would be to keep him on for a while. Its frustrating when GH rolls these big names in and out occasionally and then you dont see them for a while. Dont bring them in unless you are going to use them. Mac, Felicia, Lucy, Scott, ect. We get the OLTL crew shoved down our throats every week!

Nathan as a Cassadine? Probably but the actor who plays him is too weak. Handsome guy but think of the Cassadines, he is too light and fluffy and shows no range of emotions.

Finally, Britt (Kelly Thiebaud) has the task to report to Carly (Laura Wright) what happened to Carly’s bestie and almost husband!

How will Carly get through losing Jason and as she gets closer to the truth that Nina (Cynthia Watros) and Sonny had a romantic past and lingering feelings for each other, while the two were in Nixon Falls?  Will it all be too much for her to bear?

What will happen with Sam, now that Jason is gone, Drew is back ,and she is a new relationship with Dante?

Then, who will become Sonny’s hitman with no Jason around?  These are major questions left to be answered with the departure of the character of Jason from the GH canvas.

So, let us know what you think the fallout will be when Jason’s loved ones learn what happened to him? Do you think GH plans to recast the role, given that the pandemic is not going away anytime soon? Let us now via the comment section, but first check out ‘said’ ABC promo below.

Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson Share Disagreement with Each Other Over Vaccine Mandate; Will Continue ‘Stone Cold and the Jackal’ Shows In 2022

On the latest episode of their That’s Awesome podcast with Steve and Bradford, released over the Thanksgiving holiday, General Hospital’s Bradford Anderson (Spinelli) and Steve Burton (Ex-Jason Morgan) took some moments to address how Steve’s decision to not adhere to the ABC and GH Covid-19 vaccine mandate (which caused the two-time Daytime Emmy-winning star to be let go from the show) would affect their live shows, podcasts, content moving forward, as well as if it has caused a riff in their friendship.

When addressing listeners of the podcast, Anderson shared the the two would continue on with their projects, but that he disagreed with Burton’s decision to not follow the GH vaccine mandate.

Photo: Podcast One

Bradford expressed: “If you know us, and know are brand, if you will, it’s built on friendships, and like all friends, we have disagreements.  I disagree with Steve’s decision and he knows that. But over are years of friendships, we have had plenty of discussions about this and other topics, and sometimes we agree and sometimes we don’t, but at the end of the day we are still friends.”

Steve added: “We usually don’t get into decisive things on the show.  Look, I have a right to believe in what I want, and you have a right to believe in what you want, and that’s what makes this country great and we have never been about division.”  In addition, Steve was clear that he has not agreed to any interviews at this time on the subject of his exit, and that he is already moving on, sharing: “I am just grateful for my time at General Hospital and the people and the friendships I have made there, especially with the fans.  I have had an incredible life. Listen, I’m OK. I’m at peace. I ‘m moving forward and I am excited about it.  Like I said in my video, when one door closes, multiple doors open, and that’s what happened already.  I’ve gotten a lot of requests for interviews that I don’t want to do, because I don’t want division … that’s the bottom line.”

Look for Anderson and Burton to hit the road in 2022 and continue with their successful Stone Cold and the Jackal live comedy show and appearances.

What did you think about how Steve and Bradford addressed their disagreement on the vaccine mandate within the podcast? Will you be seeing Steve and Bradford live if they come to your town in 2022? Comment below.
